    Party organizer Tyler O'Connelli is on the fast track to her dream career. She's so close she can almost taste it. But when she returns to her family and sees her one-night stand, Alex Keller, all done up in his cowboy gear, her self-control is stretched to the breaking point….

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

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

    Yes! Molly Harper is SO clever and humorous and Amanda Ronconi delivers the perfect narration/performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane Jameson, of course. She is so witty and honorable and courageous and just plain funny...


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

    She doesn't just read, she performs the story. Her cadence and character voice changes are spot on.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Just so enjoyable all the way around...

    Ruthless might as well be Gray Bennett’s middle name. When the renowned Washington, D.C. insider talks, powerful people listen. But Gray hasn’t come home to Saranac Lake to play politics. Or play at all. A tragedy has shaken the unshakable Gray Bennett to his hardened core. And so has the most unlikely of women. The mousy redhead who used to run around the Moorehouse B and B - the one he never noticed - is now all fiery hair and lush curves. But sweet Joy Moorehouse is too innocent for a cynic like him.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not the audio version -- the narrator made it a little tough to listen to


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. Ward again?

    YES! I love her Black Dagger Brotherhood series and Jim Frangione is a superb narrator. I also enjoyed Covet and the other 2 books in this series.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I could tell she was reading and her inflections and male voices were off. It seems that the best narrators are good actors too. I don't like criticizing, but in the name of honesty it was kind of painful and made me want to stop listening at times.


    Could you see The Player being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    Reformed art forger Tilda Goodnight reluctantly joins forces with semi-reformed con man Davy Dempsey. They want to steal a dubious painting and several million embezzled dollars from a lethal widow named Clea, who has targeted a mild-mannered art collector as her next dearly departed. Complications include her sister, the female impersonator; his best friend, the reformed cat burglar; a recidivist embezzler named Rabbit; a hit man; some lousy sex; and a juke box.

    What made the experience of listening to Faking It the most enjoyable?

    Loved the characters, SO funny and excellent narration!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are so real and flawed and lovable and hilarious. Nothing like Crusie's one liners...


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

    Her intonations and superb narration skills made me feel as if I was listening to a play rather than to a book,

  • She's Got It Bad

    Twelve years ago Zoe Ford let Liam Masters break her heart. But now? There's not a chance. Zoe is as tough and wild as they come. So when Liam shows up at her tattoo parlor, she's more than ready to take him on again. That's not going to be a hardship, since he's hotter than he ever was.

    This time she's staying in charge. And she's not going to consider their score settled until he's hot, bothered and begging for more! Then she'll move on as callously as he left her.

    Julie E. Glick says: "Great story, Narrator so-so"
    "Great story, Narrator so-so"
    Overall

    I love Sarah Mayberry books, but this was a little hard to listen to because, although the Narrator had a nice voice, something was off throughout the read. Maybe it was her inflections, accenting the wrong words which made it distracting, pulling me out of the story again and again. It just sounded like she was reading and not emoting in a convincing way. It's not easy to narrate/perform audio books, but the listener should be able to lose themselves in the story instead of wishing the narrator's performance jived with the story and the emotions and the characters.
