  • Hoping for Love

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Marie Force
    • Narrated By Holly Fielding

    All her life, Grace Ryan was the "fat girl". Taunted and teased and ignored by her peers, she tried every diet ever invented to no avail. Desperate to change her life as her 20s slipped away, she decided it was time for drastic measures and had lap-band surgery. More than a year later, she's lost 130 pounds and is venturing into the dating world for the first time. During a boat trip to Gansett Island with the new guy in her life, Grace refuses to have sex with him and finds herself abandoned without a dollar to her name at McCarthy's Gansett Island Marina.

    "horrible narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who can stand to listen to a dull drone

    Would you recommend Hoping for Love to your friends? Why or why not?

    i would recommed the book not the audio

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holly Fielding?

    anyone has to do a better job. she had no emotion, no character change, i had to replay sevreral times because i couldnt tell who was who. half the time she was gasping for breath at the beginning of each blah sentence.

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

    anger beacause it could have been so much better and i will purchase the paperback from amazon if available

    Any additional comments?

    could someone not tell after the first chapter that this narrator was wrong ???

  • The Great Escape

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    • Narrated By Shannon Cochran
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    April says: "Better than the last one"
    "jr high school selection"
    What would have made The Great Escape better?

    a mature main character and not the childish, spoiled older juvenile that is portrayed. the things the character does is jr high school grade or either mentally touched adult.

    Has The Great Escape turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes please

    What character would you cut from The Great Escape?

    the one that portrayed lucy/ viper (are you kidding me?) VIPER!!!

    Any additional comments?

    the story sounded like something i could enjoy and i actually did until the spoiled brat stuff started. i mean this is supposed to be a woman in her early thirties.
