    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.

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

    Reckless is a terrific ending to the trilogy. So much action and intensity... Great listening experience. Can't really rank.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how we got to delve deeper in the the rockstar life that Kellan lives. Kiera was a strong and supportive woman through it all. I think the story got a bit mundane at certain point, but I think that was the writer being thorough.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was a bit that I don't want to ruin for other reader.


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

    Love conquers the evil's of fame.

    Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, I LOVE the crossfire series and I'm please that Sylvia got the story back on track.


    What other book might you compare Captivated by You to and why?

    Umm, I'm going to say only the other books in the series compare. They are so well written and easy to get caught up in.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I LOVED!!! the scene when Eva confronts Gideon at the Penthouse after he meets with his stepdad. I really needed Gideon to be a normal guy for a moment. Eva is frustrating and I was glad to see another side of him.


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

    I can only say that I was please with it. Entwined with you was a little disappointing, and I was really annoyed to know there were two more books to follow. I almost gave up, but i'm glad I stuck it out.

    One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

    What did you love best about Sweet Filthy Boy?

    I loved how Ansel never wavered in his decision to be with Mia. He knew he wanted her and he followed through. Aside from being crazy hot and desirable, we ladies love to be wanted.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I thought Mia was pretty cool. She took a chance and I can appreciate that. Not knowing the outcome or if he would be different once they got to Paris she stuck it out.


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

    I thought the narrator did an excellent job with the french accent.


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

    I didnt listen in one sitting, but I cam back for more. Another great romance from Christina Lauren.

    From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that, for Hayden, is everything. Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm really at my personal limit of tolerance with fragile gorgeous malnourished girls. The mousy quiet chicks who are hard to read, but bandits in the bedroom. I haven't read or listened to the follow up book, but its only because I'm on the fence. The story is appealing; I can connect personally with the loss and defeat.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Hayden, he seems like a cool guy that could believably have anyone he wants and that made him somewhat realistic.


    What three words best describe Jason Carpenter and Elizabeth Louise ’s voice?

    Accurate, Fitting and Believable


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

    I couldn't, unless Tenley came became even a ounce stronger in character as she is in handle the tragedy, it might work.

She doesn’t need a guy making waves in her calm, serene life - especially when he’s the unforgettable hottie who nearly destroyed her in high school. Dark, brooding Nash Donovan might not remember her or the terrible pain he caused. But he turned her world upside down…and now he’s trying to do it again.

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

    Honest, Loving & Sexxxy


    What other book might you compare Nash to and why?

    Because of Saint's behavior and unwillingness to commit, it reminded me of Dublin Street. Otherwise, this book held its own amongst the competition.


    What about Paula Costello and Tad Branson ’s performance did you like?

    I liked that the emotions were expressed properly. After all thats how we readers connect.


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

    What moved me the most is when Nash had the opportunity to tell his side about what took place in the past. I sympathized with Saint on being outcasted and talk about. It never really matters whether or not people name you directly it still hurts. It meant a lot for him to tell her the truth.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book overall. This is the first book from this author that I listened to.

    Why are certain women able to stay thin and never, ever diet? What is different between these naturally thin women and those that can only struggle to thinness through obsessive diet-like behaviors? The book explains the significant body of science which finally reveals the differences between the brains of thin and overweight women. It details the alterations in the brain that occur from years of overeating and dieting - and how to reverse them.

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book for one huge reason. Women should be empowered and Nate gave Olivia a necessary confidence. He found her irresistible and he showed her. Aside from that the story was okay, I really loved Dublin Street.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Before Jamaica Lane?

    I think the most memorable for me was the evolution of their love. I found it a little corny but mostly refreshing. I mean what guy would turn down sex?


    What about Lee Angel’s performance did you like?

    I thought the performance was okay. I thought the parts of Olivia were great. There was a sincerely delivery on the emotion. He scottish accent could use a little work.


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

    I thought there were some funny bits. I can't speak for all women, but I've been very unlucky in love. Romance and chick lit cause me to feel a longing. With the number of books I've read and audiobooks I've listened to, its sort of become and education.

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

    This was not the best performance but, I love the book. I actually purchased the book a couple years ago. I was curious if the book would translate the same through audiobook.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really love the conflict of the story. I don't love that the Emily was still so indecisive. I think there is a great deal of truth in the emotional conflict we experience.


    What does Mary Kowal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Little voice inflections here and there, but I think it reads much better through an actual book. I have listened to audiobooks that put you right in the thick of the moment. This narrator didnt do it for me.


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

    The Ulitmate Emotional Tug of War

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Entwined With You to be better than the print version?

    I have only had the pleasure of experiencing this series through audiobook. I can't say that I would change that, the narrator is crazy good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well I've been team Gideon all the way... even when he cooled things off in "Reflected in You". I think he has been overall solid once he decided that Eva was the one. I am not pleased that he is so involved with Corrine. Whether he used her or not, he put himself in a bad position.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really loved the sexxxy club scene. Gideon really lost himself in the moment and thats what I've been waiting for. The dominate types are so methodical most of the time.


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

    Not really...


    Any additional comments?

    Well I'm very disappointed that this story is getting extended. There is too much room for error and boring filler. I do have faith that Sylvia can do us proud, but I don't like being surprised. I'm not too pleased with this whiney brat side of Eva in this book. First you couldn't live without Gideon, and now you're not sure if you're ready for forever? Aside from that Eva's relationship with Carey is getting creepy and childish. All that said I'm still in for the long haul.

    What did you love best about Effortless?

    When I originally read this book it was immediate after I finished Thoughtless... Its was the longest 4 days of my life... I could not take a break. When I saw that the books were available on Audible, I listened just to see if the story read any different. No matter what I love this story. The emotions are genuine and the story in itself is very realistic. I love it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Kellan Kyle of course. It took alot to earn Kiera's trust this time around and he did.


    What does Rebekkah Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think she added another dimension... Its very different reading to yourself, obviously.
