    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Prior to purchasing Fifty Shades of Grey (Book 1) I read the reviews and a vast majority of them were negative. Having never read the books before, I thought I would give it a try. It is really NOT as bad as everyone keeps saying. Sure Christians voice sounds a bit cheesy and the male/female characters sound similar but it’s an audio book read by one person. The only way this audio book would sound better is if there was a male and a female reading it.

    If you are debating downloading it - stop debating. Becca Battoe does a good job for all this book entails. I really felt how Anastasia was feeling and the deep dark Christian came a crossed clear. The ending leaves you screaming NOOOOO....and instantly downloading the second book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters in this story have such real and honest feelings. It was a great great book!


    Did Becca Battoe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Given the all that the book entails, she did a good job.


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

    No, took 3 days of constant listening... had to watch out for kids and I didn't want my husband to get too many ideas. :)

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    What disappointed you about Vampire Academy?

    Really wish Audible had a return policy, this was the first book I did not finish. It was Harry Potter with Vampires. I think I will stick with the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series!

    J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood novels have introduced readers to a "different, creative, dark, violent, and flat-out amazing" (All About Romance) world. Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male's loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested - and his dangerous mixed blood revealed.

    The editing in this book is horrible! horrible! Horrible! I have not had any issues with the series (in Audible) until this book and I hope the rest of the books in the series are not like this. Horrible Editing!
