    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, there was really no chemistry between the hero and heroine. If mates are so scarce one would think the males would protect there mates better. Seriously how does a woman get kidnapped by wolves and humans every second.


    If you’ve listened to books by Heather Killough-Walden before, how does this one compare?

    No she has a good storyline e just very weak charaters


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator could have stayed in the same dialect through our the book. The mix between the southern drawl os the charaters and the British accent during the storyline three me off


    Could you see The Heat being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes a bad B flick scary movie..... The one you say the entire time "don't go in there"


    Any additional comments?

    Book too expensive to have such a weak story.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Those who have insomnia and need help sleeping... this is for you.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    There was NO story, I am not sure. No plot, not mystery (Unless you count the ghost). I think it was supose to be a romance but it was just blah. BORING


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of MacLeod Andrews?

    I actually did not mind the narrator but he really did not have much work with so not much to mess up


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Exhaustion

The brush with death awakened an intense passion between them - one that for the first time had the notorious loner letting down his guard. With the Alpha Pack battling an evil Fae who is slowly gaining control over Kalen's mind, Kalen can no longer trust his own actions, and he breaks off his affair with Mackenzie in order to keep her safe. But when Mackenzie learns that she is carrying Kalen's child, no amount of danger will keep her away from the man she loves.

    If you could sum up Black Moon in three words, what would they be?

    Compassion, Action and Emotion! You can't help but feel for Kaylan and his background


    Would you recommend Black Moon to your friends? Why or why not?

    So I would recommend the story as I am enjoying the series and really connected with Kaylan. But honestly I was not with his mate. Mac was just annoying and must suck as a psychiatrist. She just did not seem to understand Kaylan or what he needed. In every instance of his bad incidents she was the cause. Oh we'll it was a great story minus the self involve woman.... How could she let everyone but him know about her issue with their relationship


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Very nice really brought out the characters


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

    You think your family is disfunctional....Try mine

The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    If you could sum up The Witness in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, Adventurous, Romantic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Witness?

    The socially inept city girl genius meeting the mother of the sexy Town Sheriff. I can only imgine how it feels to have a I.Q of 210 not use to dealing with people, silly expressions would take a whole new meaning.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    She was on point with the expressions of both a southern gentleman and nosy townspeople. I am from the south and was raised in a small town. We love gossip and have only slight twangs in our voices. Most narrators put too heavy southern accent making the characters sound stupid.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I just really enjoy the book, listening to it was like watching a good movie. I should have had some popcorn

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a decent amount of time well-spent. The story line was different from other vampire novels as it creates a spin in vampire society. Even immortality and strength is not imprevious to bigotry and casts systems.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kendra Leigh Castle before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first Kendra Leigh Castle book, I am always ready for a good series to begin. I am looking forward to continuing with this one.


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

    No never heard Peter Bradbury's narration but he gave each character life which is good.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I may depending on the actors seems like it would make a better TV series. Puts me in mind of V with a little Xena the Princess Warrior.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The byplay between Strider and Kaia was wonderful. The contrasted between confidence and doubt in both main charaters was a good mix. No sappy love or weak women in this story. This book was about strength both phyiscal and emotional


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Harpy and Pheniox myths are not used often in stories. I like the original storyline.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Gena is really good at making you care about the characters both the good and bad. You find yourself wanting to understand the underline cause of why the characters behave they way they do.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I hate hearing him swallow his spit ...... Not attractive when directly in your ear. It is like listening to someone eating cereal. YUCK!!!


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I am glad the series is back on track.

    Would you try another book from Gena Showalter and/or Max Bellmore?

    Yes, I am really enjoying the series. These couple of books I've read in the series have not been my favorite. Though Darkest Passion was the worse, Darkest Secret, while not bad just kind of seem to lose focus. The whole story seemed like the author was kind of brainstorming without a true direction.


    Has The Darkest Secret turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I really want to finish the series as I need to know what will happen to Paris, William and Torren. Just hope it gets back on track. Seems to have been rambling with Secrets.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Like the dialogue between Defeat and the Harpee.


    Do you think The Darkest Secret needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nah... I don't think I could take it.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I think I would make the heorine have just a little more back bone. This woman was willing to pretend to be someone else for the rest of her life? I don't think so really.... have some pride woman.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I did enjoy the book. I do love a good wholesome romance with a true story line and not just about sex. This book however needed a good slap in the face by the heorine to her sister for being such a brat.


    What about Bianca Amato’s performance did you like?

    Each charater had a separate voice and personality.... Well done!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nah...much too sappy, much better to read and use the imagination. But if you throw in a good sister to sister knock down drag out fight. I would consider it.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The women's storeline..The two women in Aeron's life, those whom claimed to love him soooo much, were selfish never caring about what Aeron actually wanted. We are in the middle of a war ladies and you guy are trying trick this man into bedding you. The Angel Olivia was just as spoiled of the Demon Legion.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gena Showalter again?

    Yes, I really have like the Lord of the Underworld series. I would enjoy to listen to another.


    What about Max Bellmore’s performance did you like?

    Whether Male or Female he has the voice down packed. He pulls you into the mood of the story.


    Did The Darkest Passion inspire you to do anything?

    Slap some sense into the selfish women and tell Aeron to pick a grown woman.


    Any additional comments?

    Everything that occurred in this book was basically put into motion by self gratifying women
