    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.

    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.

    After being caught in the middle of a love triangle which led to a devastating betrayal, Kiera pledged to learn from the mistakes she’d made. She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

    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.


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

    No idea...


    Any additional comments?

    Can't hardly wait for Reckless... Already re-ordered.

    When A-list movie star Ryan Christensen ducked into her pub to escape his screaming fans, never in a million years did Taryn Mitchell think her life was about to change forever. But now, eight months later, after a whirlwind romance, Taryn wakes up in Ryan’s Hollywood hotel room to find a diamond to die for on her left ring finger - and her face splashed across the cover of every gossip magazine. Ryan’s very public proposal is catnip to the tabloids, his management team is worried, and Taryn must figure out how a small town girl like her fits into his glittering world.

    Would you try another book from Tina Reber and/or Madeleine Maby?

    When I read the first book Love Unscripted I couldn't wait for the follow up... I have to say I was more than a little disappointed with this one. I get the feeling that she was rushed for a deadline or something. It started off strong, but then fell flat.


    Has Love Unrehearsed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all, I love my Chic lit...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say that the sex in Paris was quite nice....


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I dont know... I like the idea of the conflict in this being thrilling, but it really didn't do it for me.


    Any additional comments?

    A little less about all the ins and outs of filmmaking and more Ryan and Taryn

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Where does Reflected in You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my absolute favorite "Romance Audiobook". I even listened to the Fifty Shades Trilogy and it was dull in comparison.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that we got a better sense of Gideon. Once the story really started to unfold I was sucked in completely. Gideon was dominate and strong despite Ava's inability to comply.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    I really appreciate her getting into the sexual bits... It takes the story to an entirely different level.


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

    I listened to this book in a complete day. I could not stop, I needed to know where this was going.


    Any additional comments?

    Please listen!!! Jill is the best narrator.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought the story was really well written. I was captivated and could not stop listening. Braden was perfectly imperfect and I loved that about him. I get so wrapped up in these stories b/c the lack of... but I loved that even with his own issues he broke down Joss' wall brick by brick.


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

    Her accent was spot on... Loved it


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

    I think the sex was really amazing... I got very good... imagery.
