    Easy Company, 506th Airborne Division, U.S. Army, was as good a rifle company as any in the world. From their rigorous training in Georgia in 1942 to D-Day and victory, Ambrose tells the story of this remarkable company, which kept getting the tough assignments. Easy Company was responsible for everything from parachuting into France early D-Day morning to the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. Band of Brothers is the account of the men of this remarkable unit.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Band of Brothers to be better than the print version?

    It's the best WWII story ever told. These men are true hero's. Lt. Winters is my hero.
    I couldn't put it down.

    Saloon owner Boyd Grayson is intrigued by his new neighbor, Claire Ashier, and considers her temperance crusade to shut down his noisy tavern nothing more than a game. While matching wits with the beautiful, aloof widow, he uncovers her torturous secrets that shock him to the core. Her pain affects him deeply. He wants to free Claire from her self-imposed prison, but she guards her heart with a gun and memories she can’t forget. As the battle intensifies, so do their feelings for each other. Their unexpected friendship changes the game—and also Boyd. Can he disarm Claire with his love and show her he is a man worthy of her trust…and her love?

    Story

    I have listened to the first two books in this series and loved both of them. They had fantastic great imagenative sex scenes that were "WOW". This book was more G rated and had the boring Church ladies take over way too much. Then it got better when Clarie let her hair down and let Boyd into her life and she got into his bed and stopped letting the church ladies run her life. Not sure if this 3rd book in this series is worth a credit. Get it on sale.

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    Story

    I'm not much a fan of Tana French and how she writes her books. She adds way too much in these chapters and she loses you with things that are not necessary to the story. After listening to "The Likeness" which I really thought was full of too many side lines and not much of a believable story, I bought "Faithful Place" on sale and read rave reviews saying, it's much better than all the rest of her books. Well, it was, but still not a great story. I loved the Narrator as he saved this book. I was able to listen to the whole thing without fast forwarding too much because of his accent and how he made all the characters come to life in this Irish town. I loved the character Frank Mackey. His story was good, again, especially through the narrator. This book might be a 5 star for some, but it just wasn't for me.

    RITA Award winner Robyn Carr is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. In this 19th installment of her Virgin River series, Tom Cavanaugh returns home to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. Single mom Nora Crane is nothing like the kind of woman he thought he’d fall for—yet he can’t take his eyes off her. And while they have different concepts about family, they soon find out how quickly those ideas can change.

    Story

    I listened to all 17 Virgin River books. I know they are predictable stories, but they are fun to listen too. Just enough romance, a little excitement here and there and a few laughs.
    These are lightweights and easy to listen too. Sometimes that's just what I need. This story with Nora and Tom's beginning their relationship in Tom's Apple Orchard is really a good story. Lots of romance and laughs. Robyn Carr's Thunder Point series was just as good as this one and now onto Grace Valley. I think I'll miss Therese Plummer's narration most when I finish all of Robyn's books. She is fantastic.

    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.

    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.
