    He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past - and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him - and us - forever.

    I have listened to it 3 times already, and will probably listen to it several more times. I can't wait for the next one!! We all have a past, but to find someone to make it through ours ghosts with us is a great story to me.


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

    Yes I listened to this in one day, I didn't want to turn it off!


    Any additional comments?

    This is definitely worth a Credit!

    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.

    I was so afraid to listen to this book! I LOVE BB and listened to it several times! I was afraid that the second book wouldn't any where as good as the first, but I was wrong! I think this was even better than the first! Both of the narrators did a great job.

    I wanted more of the Chloe and Bennett story, but am so glad that this was Sarah's story. I love the books that tell the story from both sides. Even though you hear Maxx's side I didn't see him totally until the last 5 mins of the book, which was probably the point :).

    If you read Beautiful Bastard, you MUST read this one! If you haven't read Beautiful Bastard, go buy it right now and then come back and buy this one! Worth your credit!!

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

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

    I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. First, I am not a cat person at all, so the cat parts (and there were A Lot of them) were annoying. I liked the flirting between them, but it took too long. It was like they refrained from anything but a kiss for all but 2 chapters maybe and then the last 2 chapters they are going at it like rabbits.


    Any additional comments?

    I would maybe get this one if it is on sale.

    When Kellan’s band gains stardom, Kiera and Kellan’s relationship is put to the ultimate test. Can their love for each other withstand the constant pressure of superstardom? The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together.

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    Yes, I didn't want to stop listening! I have looked at this series several times and not bought it thinking I wouldn't care for it. I finally decided to give it a shot, and I am so glad that I finally did! S.C. did an amazing job!! The emotional roller coaster I was on through out the entire series was unbelievable! I laughed a lot, I cried, I even got angry at times and yelled at the room :) You end up feeling like part of the huge family. I couldn't stop once I started! This entire series is worth the credits!

    Damien Stark’s need is palpable - his need for pleasure, his need for control, his need for me. Beautiful and brilliant yet tortured at his core, he is in every way my match. I have agreed to be his alone, and now I want him to be fully mine. I want us to possess each other beyond the sweetest edge of our ecstasy, into the deepest desires of our souls. To let the fire that burns between us consume us both. But there are dark places within Damien that not even our wildest passion can touch. I yearn to know his secrets, yearn for him to surrender to me as I have surrendered to him. But our troubled pasts will either bind us close...or shatter us completely.

    What made the experience of listening to Claim Me the most enjoyable?

    Sofia Willingham!!!! I love her soft whisper voice! She makes each character their own distinct person. The passion that she puts into the story, she just makes it so real! She is officially my favorite narrator!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved Release Me and have listened to it several times. I wasn't sure if the Claim Me would continue and be as great, but I was ecstatic to find that it not only was as good as the first but was even better!! The game between Damien and Nikki continues, I love the way that Damien's words just put spell on Nikki (& me ;)).


    What about Sofia Willingham’s performance did you like?

    Sofia is perfect! I am not a good reader, so I listen ;) Sofia draws you into the story and never lets you go. When the story is over she leaves you wanting for more!


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

    The emerald bracelet!


    Any additional comments?

    Use your credit for Release Me (the first book) and then Claim Me!! If you don't have credits, BUY THEM!

    Ty, by far!! He knew exactly what Jenna wanted and needed, and made sure she got it all. Ty knew what he wanted, but knew he couldn't push too fast so he sat back and let things happen to Jenna so she would figure out what she really wanted on her own.

    Win at any cost. That's always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley, Liz realizes that she'll have to work extra innings to win him back. It might not be too much of a stretch. She's had a thing for this player's moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he wants her just as bad. Gavin's more than ready - especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. And as much of her as Gavin wants.

    Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder. In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. Just when he thought he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees. Every story has two sides. In Jamie McGuire's New York Times best seller Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it's time to see the story through Travis's eyes.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Walking Disaster?

    I loved this whole book!! Beautiful Disaster was a great book, but this one adds so much to the story.


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

    I have not listened to Dan before and I was disappointed when I found out it was narrated by someone different than Beautiful Disaster. I was very surprised how much I Loved Dan in this book! He did a great job, he was a perfect choice for this book!

    The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid.

    Where does Beautiful Disaster rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, I have had this in my library for a week now and have listened to it and Walking Disaster 3 times each already! I loved this book, but when I listened to Walking Disaster it made the story even better!! You need to listen to this one first, but the next one adds even more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the apartment after the fire!!!


    If you could take any character from Beautiful Disaster out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Travis for sure!! Men act so tuff and to see his story play out, it makes you believe in love!
