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

    Disappointment---my expectations for the lusty sex scenes were not met.

    I have listened and loved all the Wicked Lovers books, sadly, I don't think this one it's worth a credit.

    The president of the United States vanishes from the White House. A top-secret prototype stealth fighter is destroyed during a test flight. Witnesses on the ground say that it was shot down by a craft that immediately vanished at impossible speeds. All over the world, reports of UFOs are increasing at an alarming rate.

    Would you listen to 'Til Death Do Us Part again? Why?

    The fight scenes and gory descriptions will keep me coming back for more.


    Any additional comments?

    A decent ending to the series. The story line tied up loose ends but left a thread for a next round of books. I thought book 5 &6 were the best in the series because the gross descriptions and creep-moments were off the chart!

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zombie Fallout 5?

    The scene with the cats was by far, one of the most disgusting and horrific chapters of this whole series. It was so intense I had to listen to it twice!! I absolutely loved it!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I almost passed this book by after reading the other reviews, I am very grateful I didn't. Yes there were a few flashbacks that were pretty detailed and long winded but the minimal annoyance of those chapters was worth the revelations and character growth of this story.
    Not to mention that frig'n cat scene, I will remember it for years! If you enjoy this series don't skip this one!!!

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Morgan?

    John Morgan did a decent job, i would listen to him again.

    Let me first say, I do not enjoy chick flicks, all the mushy love crap doesn't work for me. This was a slow moving love story. I finished the book but i regret spending a precious credit on it. I chose the book from some of the other reviews,I thought this was a more erotic story and less learning and exploring new love. Inferno should be changed to a morning after smoulder.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Gillian Flynn has become one of my favorite authors. She really wraps up a story with all the bows and whistles.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What made the experience of listening to 14 the most enjoyable?

    A well written fun and interesting story, with decent character development and thickening plot. Waiting for the next installment.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first moment they realized what was in room 14. Rocked it!!


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

    The universe with a twist of the door knob.


    Any additional comments?

    I will try any book narrated by Ray Porter, but his Joe Ledger is still by far my favorite.

    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.…

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Excellent story, well crafted and written, the performance was a complete compliment to the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I experienced a full range of emotions for the characters.
    Disgust, rage, love, sympathy. By the end of the book, I had cheered for the "bad guy" and boo'd the "good girl" and everything in between.

    The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

    I didn't feel the characters or dialogue conveyed enough emotion for me to become attached to the story, for this reason, I am not sure if I will continue onto book 2. The premis of the story had real potential but it didn't complete the points for me.
