    Nell Hawthorne is in love with her life-long best friend, Kyle Calloway. 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.

    Would you listen to Falling into You again? Why?

    Yes, but I would give myself a little time to get over the emotional upheavals that this book erects in the way of its protagonists. They can be down right brutal.


    What other book might you compare Falling into You to and why?

    It is in its own way, it is as emotionally heart breaking and goes even farther in the emotional aspects than the Shades of Grey series with the depths Nell and Colton each show the other and us the reader.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were actually three scenes that would go into my favorite categories. I cannot tell you though, because this is not a spoiler alert! Go ahead, you will find them yourself.


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

    I wanted to but needed a little emotional break, but the entire read was worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    Just read it!

    Nicole Ashe is the average American girl, except that she happens to work for a vampire and doesn't realize it. But all that changes when her boss sends her to convince a local rock musician – heartthrob, to help them retrieve an ancient relic that could be the answer to the vampire's curse. There is something about Nicole that stirs Alec's hunger nearly beyond control, but he would do anything to protect her...even from himself.

    Would you try another book from Lorraine Kennedy and/or Lee James and Destiny Landon ?

    NO, the quite spaces made me think it was over every chapter and then the music between chapters not to mention Alec's voice was way creepier than sexy.


    What was most disappointing about Lorraine Kennedy’s story?

    The spaces of silence in between story chapters followed by horrible music.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Hugely, Alec's voice is terrible.


    What character would you cut from Born to Darkness?

    Unsure as I could not make myself finish the story.


    Any additional comments?

    No silences or music in the middle of the books. We are not children who need potty breaks or music to reclaim our attention. Just give me a shorter book, maybe one that I could love if I could listen to the full book.

    Dishonorably discharged, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin is down to his last ten bucks when he finally finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, a little-known and believed-to-be-fringe scientific research facility. When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

    Where does Born to Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the top, as Brockmann is a favorite author, this is not surprising. What is, however, is the supernatural in the novel. I was a little leery of how it would work, but have to admit it was done to perfection. I hope to enjoy this new Series as much as I have the Trouble Shooters so far. I cannot wait until the next Fighting Destiny book is out.


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

    I wanted nothing more than to keep listening until the end in one sitting, but the story was too long for such an endeavor.
