    What did you love best about Seven Years to Sin?

    The physical descriptions of the characters are very vivid.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seven Years to Sin?

    The sensual reactions of 16 year old, innocent Jessica after watching Alister having sex in the garden made me want to read on. She shared that moment with her fiancee and let you know how in touch with her sensuality she was.


    Have you listened to any of Fiona Underwood’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She's an excellent actress changing her voice to fit the characters keeping you in the moment.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Sharing their past secrets and creating a loving and supportive bond between them.


    Any additional comments?

    The sensual, sexual scenes are graphically described and make me want to read her again and again. If I am looking for a book about sexual fantasies, she's the gal who offers it in her love stories.

    The first murder rocks the city. The entire Bjornson family - except the father, Stephen - has been brutally murdered, and the killer has left a message behind, written in the victim's blood: Don't Waste People's Time. It's a grizzly start for two young detectives who've just become partners. But Max Larkin and Jesse Fairlane put their personal distaste for each other aside and start concentrating on how to find the killer from striking again

    The book was interesting enough for me to keep listening . The narrator must be from Chicago and used very few contractions, the same voice for all the characters and basically monotone throughout. Though I struggled through it and I don't think you should waste a credit on this one.

    From the mean streets of Detroit rises the newest superstar of professional wrestling, Xavier Cold, better known as Phenomenal X. His muscular physique makes men cower before him and women lose their minds with desire. Anna Cortez is fresh out of college and naïve to the harsh realities of the real world. Tired of living under the thumb of her conservative family, she defies them when she accepts a job as the assistant to wrestling's most notorious bad boy.

    The story of X and Anna brings us to how love can conquer all but in this case their story is incomplete. I hope MV is presently writing Book 2 and publishes it soon. This is one of several books by other authors that have left me hanging and I'm still waiting for the follow ups.

    Nina Sheridan desperately needs a timeout vacation. With a fiancé who can't even remember how she takes her coffee, Nina wants some distance to rethink her engagement.

    Now this book was written beautifully, had a wonderful story line and two awesome characters. She was cute and sassy and he was hot, tough and sweet. She's engaged but not sure he's right for her so she takes a "time out" trip from England to Colorado for time to think about what she wants in life. She went online and found a beautiful A-frame house and rented it in Colorado. When she gets there a hot mountain man lives there and has no idea about anyone renting his house trying to send her away. The interaction in between is filled with fire and challenge on both sides. She walks out and goes to her car ready to drive to the hotel. She wakes up to find herself in someone's bed alone. Read the rest of it yourself. I couldn't put it down and neither will you.

    The unexpected, naivity and openness of Hannah was refreshing. What an adorable couple. I found myself laughing from some of the dialogue. The love scenes were good and not over the top but sweet and sexy. More of these books would be great! The narrators are great together. He sounds like the hunks she writes about. I'd love to see a picture of what they look like, both Seabastian and Will. Grace does a good job and they both bring the characters to life. I highly recommend this one.

    Roxie’s on the run from a bad boyfriend who will not catch the hint that it is o-v-e-r. She’s in no mood for love at first sight, but when her eyes fall on Hank, it’s trouble from the get-go. Roxie tries to hold Hank at arm's length but Hank wants to be a closer (as in, a lot closer). Roxie’s trouble catches up with her and Hank wants to help but Roxie knows in her heart that she’s no good for a white-hat guy. The problem is no one agrees with her, especially her crazy hippie best friend Annette or her parents; the even crazier small-Indiana-town Herb and Trish.

    Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Susannah Jones?

    I've read the other Rock Chick books by Kristen Ashley and enjoyed them. This one is poorly written with no substance. The narrator sounds high pitched and irritating. I'm really disappointed because the description sounded really interesting. Her books are usually good and I hope to find others with more depth and a new narrator.

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.

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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.
