    In pre-war Prague, the dreams of two young lovers are shattered when they are separated by the Nazi invasion. Then, decades later, thousands of miles away in New York, there's an inescapable glance of recognition between two strangers. Providence is giving Lenka and Josef one more chance. From the glamorous ease of life in Prague before the Occupation, to the horrors of Nazi Europe, The Lost Wife explores the power of first love, the resilience of the human spirit, and the strength of memory.

    Kudos to author Alyson Richman, and narrators George Guidall and Suszanne Toren for the most heart rendering book I've read on audible. I will be thinking about this story for a long time to come. I love the narrators' depiction of the characters and their story . I am overwhelmed and never read a book so quickly.

    Story
    Where does The Future of Our Past rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Two best friends finally coming together as lovers were very hot and intense. This is a true love story about best friends finally admitting their love for each. It ranks high among other love stories I've read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ryan and Julia were equally well defined characters giving us a clear picture of who they are and how they looked.


    What about Liona Gem and Blake Richard ’s performance did you like?

    Two very excellent narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    It ends at a very important point in the story leaving me frustrated for more. I hope the continuing trilogy is ready in the immediate future.

    The second book in the Sinners on Tour series features lead singer Sedric Lionheart, who became a playboy after his fiancee, Jessica, broke his heart. Trapped on a summer tour together for two entire months - but stubbornly desperate to stay apart - they find a million steamy reasons why they had that lovin' feeling in the first place.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Cunning seemed to have written this book with no depth of the characters. The story-line was pretty weak.


    What three words best describe Justine O. Keef’s performance?

    O'keef's characters were not narrated distinctly enough.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A real story-line showing the depth of each character.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't read her other Sinners books. I hope they're better than this one.

    Welcome to the world of Kara Gillian, a cop with a gift. Not only does she have the power of "othersight" to see what most people can’t even imagine, but she’s become the exclusive summoner of a demon lord. Or maybe it’s the other way around. The fact is, with two troublesome cases on her docket and a handsome FBI agent under her skin, Kara needs the help of sexy, insatiable Lord Rhyzkahl more than he needs her. Because these two victims, linked by suspicious coincidence, haven’t just been murdered. Something has eaten their souls.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator had no change of emotion as she told the story. She showed no energy. Her voice changes for the other characters weren't bad but the storyline was not as exciting as other books of that type.

    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    What disappointed you about The Wanderer?

    I began the book hoping for an interesting character with a special tale of why he came back to Thunderpoint. I was let down and bored so stopped reading and returned it.


    Has The Wanderer turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Probably.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Gotten a better book to narrate.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    If a book doesn't catch my interest right away it means it has no depth and I'll be bored.

    Would you try another book from Kresley Cole and/or Robert Petkoff?

    I have read other books by them and enjoyed them. This was just a total disappointment.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hopefully one that has a plot and drama.


    Did Robert Petkoff do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He always has done a good job with the characters in the books he narrates. But Kresley lost her touch with this one.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Kiss of a Demon King?

    The book is trash and shouldn't have been published.

    Successful businessman Ryan Bennett had agreed to masquerade as his wealthy cousin for a blind date. But from the moment Ryan saw Julie Nelson to the moment he should have said good-night, he was captivated and couldn't resist an invitation to share her bed. In the hazy afterglow of their heated lovemaking, Ryan confessed his true identity, claiming the passion between them was real despite his deception, but Julie wasn't buying it. Obviously she considered him the enemy.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A teenage girl.


    What was most disappointing about Susan Mallery’s story?

    There was no drama worth dealing with. A common story line of identity deception for ridiculous reasons.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Savannah Richards?

    The narrator had to read the book she was given to read. She did the best she could.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nothing about this book was intriguing, dramatic, compelling. Just a lot of sexual scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    If she's written other books I hope they have depth and quality. Otherwise I won't read them. I'm definitely returning this one.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Stranger?

    Sarah had been in a 4 year relationship with an older prominent man seeking political office. He'd been cheating on her from the beginning and she'd had enough. She moved to NYC to start a new life, and where her best friend lived.Christina Lauren created two beautiful characters. Her first night in NYC, she joined her best friend for a party with friends at a dancing club. She was ordering shots at the bar when this gorgeous man walks over to her and begins to flirt. She decides not to give her name having no idea whether he is a dangerous pervert or not. He makes it clear he isn't and tells her that he'd like to shag her at his apartment, or hers if she'd prefer. Debating with herself that she was tempted and feeling hot and sexy she decided against it and brought the drinks to her friends waiting a their table
    She hit the dance floor, began dancing erotically thinking about him and what she'd like him to do to her. She saw him watching her, his eyes ablaze wanting to shag her right there on the dance floor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would like to read more of Christina Lauren's books on this level of writing. I've downloaded the Beautiful Bastard to begin another love story of two of the characters from the Beautiful Strangers.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrators were fabulous and brought both characters to life including the surrounding characters.

    Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

    Would you listen to Colters' Woman again? Why?

    Absolutely!. I've only just started reading the book and am so taken in that I need to share.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Colters' Woman?

    So far every chapter is riveting.


    Which character – as performed by Freddie Bates – was your favorite?

    They are all my favorites. Maya Banks delineates each brother as separate individuals, yet shows them each as loving, respectful, hot and sexy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, If I didn't work daily, I would have finished it in one day.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read many hot books by other wonderful authors and Maya Banks stands equal to them all. Though other reviews are about the fantasy of a woman with 3 brothers she can't resist this is definitely on top of my list.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    One of the best I've ever read!


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    This is one of the most exciting vampire stories among several others I've listened to.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Petkoff brought each character to life. He's a consummate narrator creating the voices and images perfectly. I'd read any book he narrates.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing!


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Kresley Cole is a wonderful vampire story teller creating characters and images that come to life. I've downloaded several of her books, but this is so far the best.
