I love to read anything and everything! Audio is perfect in my car or earphones. I'd rather read than just about anything else.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    I would. I enjoy the "attitude" that Amanda lends the heroine in each story. She brings them to life as normal.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to choose a favorite but my tendency is to go for Nick. He hung in there when he could have just picked himself up and skeedattled out of there at the first sign of trouble. Gotta love that.


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

    Amanda is an interesting character voice....she has made the Molly Harper characters believable and as I said, normal. I enjoy her little bit of sass and think she was an excellent fit for the feeling that Molly Harper wanted to portray.


    Could you see And One Last Thing... being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    oh wow. Now that would be fun. Need a female lead who can pull off sarcastic, sassy and strong without seeming overbearing and obnoxious. I'll have to think on that .
    Nicks character needs to be the sweet nerd, with a soft side.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks for a good "read" Molly Harper. Amanda, you made it fun and I appreciated that.

    He's a duke. He's a mathematical genius. He can't talk and he's locked in a lunatic asylum. Only a modest Quaker girl can reach him, but when she helps him to escape, she's swept into his glittering aristocratic world, her life torn apart by his desperate attempt to save himself.

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

    This is most definitely an audio I will recommend. The author created a story so rich with detail that was not boring (as some authors are) but enriching to the story. I was a bit wary of the 18 hour time but it was so worth it! I've listened to this two times! I'm sure it won't be the last!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Where do I start?
    The portrayal of the Dukes utter frustration and desperation at his lack of ability to communicate during this story. It was heartbreaking. Her willingness to help him... So many things!


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

    You could not have chosen a better narrator for this story. His acting abilities brought these characters to life. He had me laughing out loud (kill him when you need him) and crying at parts of this story. Mr. Boulton is a tremendous actor. There aren't words clever enough to describe his abilities. He's miraculous! I just wish there were more books available that he's narrated! He's in a class all by himself.


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

    Believe me, I tried! There is something about the right combination of story and narrator that just creates magic. Laura Kinsale and Nicholas Boulton are just that....Magic!


    Any additional comments?

    What a story! It digs down deep inside of you and pulls out so much emotion. A treat I feel privileged to have enjoyed! I've "read" all the other books by Laura Kinsale with Nicholas Boulton. A true pleasure.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

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

    Well... I have to say yes. It was great to get a story that was from the mans perspective. Unusual but awesome!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tangled?

    I loved how he tried to court her. That was fun.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending scene when he made all those changes to his place to give her a place in his life...sweet.


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

    His case of the "flu". . Felt bad for the guy who had everything...almost.


    Any additional comments?

    Sebastian York did a great job. Added just the right amount of cynical, jaded attitude. Very fluid and fun.

    He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart - until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland.

    Would you listen to Beyond the Highland Mist again? Why?

    Oh yes! It was a fun story and Phil Gigante is fabulous!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's my first Karen Marie Moning book... Loved the whole time travel story.


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

    This is my first Phil Gigante performance. And what a performance he did!! He is amazing! I quite think I'm in love with his voice.... Sigh~ I have already ordered the rest of the series. His character definition was great... No two sounded alike. And his brogue.... Yeah... I could eat him up! He truly made the story..it did not sound read and was fluid. He did a great job on the faerie voices when speaking to the mortals. I couldn't turn this story off- even for sleep!


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

    Well, Hawk was so desperate for her and she just held out soooo long...I'm not sure how she could but his torment was sad. For a guy who was used to getting what he wanted, He had to fight for this girl and her past with everything in him. Knew there would be a nice resolution but it was hard to see them both so miserable.


    Any additional comments?

    Great, fun story! Can't wait to start the next one! So glad Phil Gigante is performing the series! Marvelous acting!
