    All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond - beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman's daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier. The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal-men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter.

    It's been 20 years since Rockford Fielding's father punished him for kissing another boy. Rock continues to deny his true desires, even while working security at The Den, the most decadent sex club in town. But after a year of watching gorgeous Carter Montgomery come and go on the arms of other men, Rock can no longer resist the cravings he's denied for so long. One charmingly awkward date turns into two and soon the men are meeting off the clock. But with Rock in the closet and Carter unsure how to pursue a real relationship, how can they build a future both in and out of the bedroom?

    Story

    I waited a long to buy this book. I've listened to all the others in this series. I'm sorry I waited so long.
    I really didn't think I'd like a gqy man's novel, but boy was I wrong. The story is so well written. Dealing with all the struggle of society's views and coming out and how will your patents take it. The romance is hot!
    I'm glad the author chose a male narrator for this story. He did a good job. I wished for a little more difference in the characters though. And, quite frankly, he sucked at the female voices, but there aren't that many in this book so it wasn't to hard to over look.
    Great love story of learning who you are and what you want and how to trust.

    Try it!

    Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she'll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants...

    Story

    Excellent 2nd book in this series. I can't wait for the next one.

    I'm very glad this author has not chosen to use multiple narrators. As in 2 or more in the same book, as the trend these days seems to be. I find that very distracting when listening. Also, I'm very glad she has used the same narrator as the first book. She is perfect!

    In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

    Where does The Witch with No Name rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I LOVE this series and am truly sorry this was the finale. However, Kim Harrison did an AMAZING job tying everything up! Read this series from the beginning. You will not be disappointed. Marguerite Gavin does an amazing job with all the characters. Every one is distinctive.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tangled to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Loved them all. Great cast of characters.


    What about Sebastian York’s performance did you like?

    I don't think I've ever listened to anything performed by Sebastian York before, but I am absolutely going to start looking for other books he has done. He is AMAZING!!! Not sure what the new thing about a male & female narrator is all about, but I prefer a really good narrator doing all the voices. Sebastian York is trully a genious. I was able to tell which character was which with no problem


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

    YES!!!...I was sucked in to this book right away...Unfortunantly sleep is needed...


    Any additional comments?

    I loved all of Drew's reference quotes. Many many laugh out loud moments, I'm sure my fellow workers were wondering what was so funny... I have put off getting this book and am now sorry I waited so long. I will absolutely be getting the rest of this series. I loved the fact that this book is written from the man's point of view..

    Sex is supposed to be sexy, tantalizing, and completely erotic, but Anna never seems to find the right guy. This one seems to be a germ-a-phobe, and the previous boyfriend wasn't much better. Anna just wants to be wanted. Is that too much to ask? As Anna tries to wiggle out of one relationship, a new one surfaces, but it's forbidden. Cole Stevens is twice her age, arrogant, rich, sexy as hell, and her boss. When Anna's internship plans derail, she ends up interning at Cole's elite New York City studio.

    Jennifer O'Donnell does a great job with the characters. I like her narration. However, I am not happy with the fact that this story just plain stopped and the other "volumes" aren't available here...
