    I Need a Gangsta: Melody Goldman isn’t about to let her rich, cheating, ungrateful husband walk out and leave her with nothing. Fortunately, ex-con Scotty Harris has no problem disposing of her problems in exchange for plenty of cold, hard cash - and hot, hard sexing. But when Scotty crosses one line too many, Melody’s revenge will be a hustle he never saw coming.… Gentlemen Prefer Bullets: Successful publicist Blake Scott survived by playing the Hollywood game…and keeping far, far away from her gangsta kingpin father. But now the only person who can protect her is his enforcer, Eli Hardwick.

    The Reverend Curtis Black hasn't spoken to his son, Matthew, in over a year-not since Matthew dropped out of Harvard to marry his girlfriend, Racquel, and be a full-time father to their infant son. Curtis knows that it was he and his wife, Charlotte, who drove Matthew away, but he prays that one day his son will forgive them and come home.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Prodigal Son to be better than the print version?

    I would. For me, listening to the audio edition tends to bring the book to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the ending


    What does Peter Jay Fernandez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    At first, I didn't care for his voice, however the story line was brilliant and it made bearable to listen to him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Matthew came back home.


    Any additional comments?

    great book. can't wait for the next one and maybe we will hear more about Dylan Whitfield Black.

    With The Interruption of Everything, her sixth novel, Terry McMillan takes on the fault lines of mid-life and family life, reminds us once again of the redeeming power of friendship, and turns her eye toward the dilemma of how a woman starts to put her own needs higher on the to-do list while not shortchanging everyone else.

    No I hadn't however she was a fresh of breath air for this story. Wonderful narration.

    In a decrepit and long-empty New York building, a man begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, he finds two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. The man is Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s billionaire husband, Roarke, and he summons her immediately. His latest real estate project is going to be on hold for a while, because by the time Eve and her crew are finished searching the premises, there are 12 murders to be solved.

    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    I have always enjoyed J.D.Robb's books. This one was lacking. Eve's attitude with the man that helped Mavis was irritating. this book bored me to tears. I normally finish a book in a day. It has taken me 2 days to listen to this one and I am still trying to finish it. I am also very tired of hearing about Eve's childhood. Can't we have one book where we do not have to hear about all the crazy. Let's move in a different direction. She is too judgmental and a hypocrite in this book. Not a good read at all!


    Has Concealed in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I still like these types of books. I just don't like this one at all


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love Susan Ericksen. She's not the problem. Just the writing.


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Can Eve move on and enjoy her life as it has become? Can we have a story line that doesn't wrap around Christmas. All of them seem to. There are other holidays...I don't want the series to end, but can she have a baby and we see how she responds to having her own family?

    Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for 15 years, they have a wonderful daughter, Mackenzie, successful careers, and a beautiful house in a posh Chicago suburb. They are attractive, respected...and hiding a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. It started innocently enough. Denise occasionally used prescription drugs to help her deal with the long hours and demanding nature of her job. Derrek, also under pressure at work, began using cocaine socially with some of his colleagues. They can quit whenever they want to. At least, that's what Denise would like to believe....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    a different story line. the story dragged on too long about nonsense and never really came together for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    any book not by Kimberla.


    What didn’t you like about Shay Moore’s performance?

    her voice was very monotone.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Perfect Marriage?

    all the scenes about the behind the scenes details of their jobs.
