    Story

    I usually like Amish stories, but this was no Witness (The Movie) I knew it wasn't a thriller or an award winner, but I thought it might be a good story. It wasn't. It was so predictable and boring. At least it was on sale.

    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.

    Story

    Drew has an ego that you keep saying WHAT?? His attitude towards women is horrible. I kept listening to this as I'm thinking, What a SOB. But as the story goes on, I caught myself laughing at his comments and grew to really like him as he falls so hard for Kate. This is a very HOT and sexy listen as Sebastian York is fantastic with the way he portrays Drew and takes him through this ride to win Kate over. I also listened to "Tied" Book 4 of this series, which was fantastic.
    I don't think I'll take on the other two books since after you listen to Sebastian York, it's not likely that you'll enjoy anyone else narrating this series. I also love the way this author has Drew talk to the reader as if he is telling just you this saga. The best part is when he comments to the reader, "Come on, I guess you really think I'm a dick now" And you agree with him totally.
    Great writing Emma Chase.

    Lilly Yazhi knows all she needs to know about Clay Tahoma. Sure, he’s got a certain appeal befitting his Navajo roots, but she’s not falling for Clay’s silent, “earthy” attractiveness. She certainly won’t make the same mistake as Clay’s ex-wife. Only trouble is, her heart and mind have committed to different resolves.

    Story

    This series is out of order with these two books. Promise is taken place first and then Wild Man Creek. Don't know how Audible messed this one up. Both books are a great segment of the whole series. I love how Robyn Carr takes these stories and is able to keep your interest with these easy listening episodes.
    I don't think I could listen if Therese Plummer doesn't narrate them. Wonderful.
    It's worth the credits to get everyone in this series. Thunder Point is great too.

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Robyn Carr is renowned for her Virgin River series. When Colin Riordan is caught in a devastating helicopter crash, Virgin River seems like the ideal place to recover - both physically and emotionally. But when PR guru Jillian Matlock, who rents a Victorian home down the street, finds Colin trespassing, an instant connection blossoms between them - which leads to more than either expects.

    Story

    This is one of the books you really don't need to have read the others in the series to get right into it. Jillian and Colin are new characters that have never been mentioned much in the Virgin River Series. The story about Jack and Denny is also emotional and so sweet. You probably figure out the ending all through this book, but its one that I couldn't stop listening too. It had several twists and turns with the relationships. Robyn Carr had me laughing out loud several times at how funny Jillian and Colin were with their chemistry between each other but nothing had happened yet. Their romance comes together and it had me smiling out loud so to speak the whole time. Get ready for Tears and Hankys at the end. LOVED IT!! Needless to say Therese Plummer makes this book. She is so good at all the characters and voices. I couldn't listen to a Robyn Carr book without her.

    This 10th novel in Robyn Carr’s New York Times best-selling series features scruffy-looking ex-Navy gynecologist Aiden Riordan and prickly lawyer Erin Foley. While each just wants to get away from it all for the summer, a bear scare, a bizarre concussion, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity thrust them together and kindle an unlikely romance. Then Aiden’s scheming ex-wife shows up.

    Story

    Robyn Carr's Stories and Therese Plummer's narration go together like peas and carrotts.
    This story is about another Reardon Brother and his coming to Virgin River and how he finds love. Of course everyone who comes to Virgin River finds love, but as usual it's not an easy path to Happily Ever After. I love the way the drama hits you and suspense goes throughout the story. Then another gotcha moment. Never dull and I always can't wait to get back to listening to Therese Plummer. She is excellent with all the male, female, older and younger voices. Onto the next one in this series. Five Stars!!

Their young love is invincible and life is full of promise; then one night Kyle dies suddenly in a tragic accident and Nell is forever changed. She meets Kyle's older brother, Colton, for the first time at the funeral. They both struggle to move on with life as best they can. Years later, they meet again in New York City, and Colton realizes that Nell has never really gotten over Kyle's death. She seems to be harboring a deeply rooted pain, a heavy weight of guilt, and regret. He knows he shouldn't get involved, but he can't help himself.

    This is a very HOT romance story. The story about Nell and Colton itself is pretty good, but the way this author, Jasinda Wilder writes a sex scene is unbelievable. WOW! Very well done. I'm almost finished with the next book in the series, Falling Into Us. You don't need to read the first one to enjoy the second one at all. Falling Into Us is much better too. The story between Becca and Justin is more about their lives and relationship with family than just the Hot sex scenes.

    Story

    I love Robyn Carr and I am used to her books from Virgin River, Thunder Point etc that keep your interest and none of them seem drawn out. I was hoping I would like this one, but did not. The story kept moving slow as it took forever to find bits and pieces about Sam. Did not hold my interest and had to fast forward several times. I got to the last 2 hours and listened and it got better but it shouldn't have taken so long.
    The WORST part was Christina Traister's male voices. It was chalk on a blackboard. She is a good narrator but don't make the male voice sound like a 90 year old man on his deathbed. Awful. Maybe get this on sale or a free credit. Some might like it if you they are bored.

    Story

    This book had a lot of potential. First the Narrator ruined it since her southern accent was long and drawn out and over acted. I got past that and started to like the story, but some of the storylines just leave you empty. Didn't finish out on some of them. I could have given this one more stars. Butt,, the ending really was horrible. The who dunnit, left you "shaking your head" and it just didn't fit at all.
    Not worth the credit or on sale.

    Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

    Story

    This was a hard one to get into. I almost returned it as this story and how it jumped around so much from stories almost lost me. It grabbed me when the Grandmother started telling her story and then I was hooked. Fantastic narration and just grabbed you with her heart breaking saga of being in a concentration camp as a young girl and how she survived. The ending just kept getting better as it all came together. I'm still not thrilled with how this author threw in a few chapters of who is this and how does this connect with the story, but at the end you find out. It's a great 4 star book with a 5 star narration from this group. WOW!!

But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next. Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.

    The story was very unusual and gripping. The narration by both people was amazing. Zachary Webber was really great and I'll look up others that he narrated now. It sucked you in and I just loved reading about how Sidney and Ridge's relationship became so personal and deep. BUT,, as I got towards the end of the story, there was an hour that was dragging and got way too deep into the heatbeats, breathing, sighs, etc. It had me until that part. I loved how Coleen Hoover wrote the majority of this story, but this part almost ruined it. The ending was much better and it moved on. It's worth a listen and a credit.
