    After 15 years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed - and her secrets start coming between them.

    Story

    I wasn't expecting too much from this book considering the genre & price. I have to say that the story was surprisingly insightful, while at the same time providing some very hot scenes!!!
    Perhaps because I could relate to the main character (married to the same man for many years, looking to "spice things up" between the sheets, etc) the story sounded pretty authentic to me.
    The protagonist finds herself looking to push some new sexual boundaries, but she's afraid that her husband my react negatively and might reject her. As you might expect, he's more willing to be convinced to try new things than she realizes...
    Just a quick, short, hot story that provides some insight into what seems to be a pretty common situation for couples these days: what happens when we come to have different expectations and the consequences of not being able to properly communicate them to our partner...Cheers & Happy reading!!!

    With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for Lillian Linden-Smith's blood for crimes committed by her "American royalty" parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all Ph.D. for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time. From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she's dealing with.

    Would you listen to Love by the Numbers again? Why?

    Probably within the next few months. Likable characters, romantic story line and not too many cliches..


    What other book might you compare Love by the Numbers to and why?

    Probably 96 hours by Georgia Beers, the author has a similar style of writing likable characters that are not perfect but are decent human beings looking for love.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen Roche-Zujko’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not, but I am sure to look for other titles narrated by her. She's was wonderful to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The travelling adventures of two amazing girls that fall in love in the process!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a wonderful romantic escape, give it a try!

    Shades of Twilight is the story of Roanna Davenport, who grows up in a wealthy southern family but never quite fits in. She isn't pretty or popular, and she has a real talent for saying the wrong thing at precisely the wrong moment. She's in love with a distant cousin, Webb Tallant. But Webb marries their cousin Jessie, the bane of Roanna's life. When Jessie is found murdered, Webb is blamed for her death, even though there isn't enough evidence to charge him.

    Story

    I've a few of Linda Howard's books in my audio library (After the Night, Kill & Tell) and for the most part, I have really enjoyed her writing style. She brings a good balance between, action, mystery & romance to her novels. The romance aspect of the book is typically well done with a level of sensuality but in good taste.
    I have to say thought, that I found Shades of Twilight's description of incestuous relationships very disturbing to say the least. The author didn't do a good at describing those relationships in a more critical light, but rather they are presented to the reader as almost normal and acceptable.
    Ms. Howard is a great writer and she always does a good job at transporting you to the time & place where her characters are located but this one is by far my least favorite of her books.
    Natalie Ross has become one of my favorites narrators, she brings the right level of emotion to the story without overacting. She also is one of the few female narrators that has a perfect pitch to handle both male & female voices (Let's face it; some female narrators sound very creepy when doing male voices!!)
    If you are a fan of Linda Howard, you'll probably enjoy this book. If this if your Linda Howard book, I suggest you start with something a little lighter than this...Cheers and happy reading!!!

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    Story

    I actually adored this book. I enjoy audiobooks but it's not frequent that I found myself inmerse and lost in a story line, loving characters as well as a great narrator. Ms, Kearsley has that ability of transporting you to a different time and place that feels simply magical. The paralel romances feel authentic and porwerful without crossing a line into the tasteless.
    I look forward so much to reading Ms. Kearsley new novel next(already downloaded it) If you enjoy romance as well as historical fiction, I am sure you'll love this wonderful book!

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"
    "Enjoyed Eat, Pray, Love!!"
    Overall

    This is my 1st review in Audible even thought I've been a member for a few years now.
    I found this book surpringly refreshing, candid and insightful. Ms. Gilbert writes openly about her experiences after a difficult divorce and her journey to rediscover herself and her true identity by traveling to three countries in search of Pleasure, Spirituality and Love. Eat, Pray,Love is the quintessential mid-life search for meaning and purpose that so many people faced at some point in their lives. I downloaded the 1st chapter to Committed (Ms. Gilbert's 2nd Memoir) and found it so interesting that I decided to start with the 1st book in order to understand her story better. I also liked her voice and thought that her narration was excellent. Highly recommended!!!
