    Lori had always planned to get out of tiny Tumble Creek, Colorado, but when her late dad left her his beloved auto body shop, she'd stayed. Now, according to her crazy best friend, Molly, what Lori needs is some excitement, in the form of hot, no-strings-attached sex...and lots of it.

    Stephanie says: "HOT, SEXY, EXCITING."
    "Very Frustrating!"
    Overall

    Throughout the story Lori is incredibly lonely but she fights her relationship with Quinn tooth and nail. How does it make any sense when you are lonely, have chemistry and serious feelings for a person that you would continue fighting it? I enjoyed the first book in this series much better, at least those characters embraced their relationship in the end. I had no sense of closure with this book.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    I loved how Charlaine Harris decided to end her Sookie Stackhouse series! Ive been reading this series for many, many years so I'd decided to read several reviews before purchasing the book (I'm leery of authors who completely destroy a series at the end in order to accommodate what people think should be their HEA). Those reviewers that I read were upset about who Sookie ended up with and not happy at all with the end of the series. I have to say that I disagree completely. Ms. Harris managed to find a very satisfying end while staying true to who Sookie was as a person. I would have loved to hear a little bit at the end about how Sookie's life turned out from that point (stemming from my desire to not let go of this series I think :-), I'll miss it!) but I can use my imagination :-). Overall, great book! A fantastic end to the series!

    Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Vamps and the City to be better than the print version?

    I think so. The narrator was a little distracting with some of the voices she created for certain characters. For instance the character Shanna sounds exactly like Marilyn Monroe with her "breathy" voice, it wasn't bad just a little distracting from the story.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    What about Johanna Parker???s performance did you like?

    Ms. Parker always does a fantastic job with this series! Its always clear to the listener who is speaking and she has a way of giving each character their own personality beyond what is written.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending to this book was very disappointing because you're left with no solution to a very big problem in Sookie's life. Now I have to wait a whole year to find out what happens :( !!!

    Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men - a vow she's determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She'll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you. She absolutely does not need male company, no matter how tan and rock-hard his body may be. Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Under a Vampire Moon?

    I laughed out loud at the parts where Christian's cousin is trying to figure out how Carolyn could think he was gay. It was a well written and entertaining book.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book? Yes. This narration of it? No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Nausser?

    LOVE Lorelei King! She's done a fantastic job with every book I've ever heard her narrate!


    Any additional comments?

    This narrator did a very poor job; it's almost as if english is a second language for her. There were lots of broken/mispronunciations such as:
