    Beautiful Vega Zaragoza learned the hard way that sex and the spotlight don’t mix. Now the former model makes her living behind the camera, working as a videographer to escape public scrutiny. But when Vega gets a shot at her dream job, one that puts her back in the public eye, she must choose: continue to play it safe or gamble everything to go toe-to-toe - and heart-to-heart - with the city’s most eligible bachelor.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would say this about this book. I just finished this book maybe a week ago and I don't remember much about it and I think that says a lot. It's not a horrible story by any means and I've listened to some horrible stories but it's no page turner either.


    Would you recommend Caught on Camera to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it if it's on sale, I purchased it because it was on sale for 7.95 and the reviews were good. If I had used a credit I wouldn't be too happy right now.


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

    This is the first of Natalie's work I've heard. She did a good job.


    Was Caught on Camera worth the listening time?

    Sure why not, kept me entertained enough while I was at work.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Falling into You the most enjoyable?

    You can feel the pain of the characters in this book. Nell is a girl that's headed for accomplishing great things in life but when tragedy strikes her path is changed forever. You get to see this perfect girl with her perfect life turned upside. The struggles she goes through is not pretty or glamourized, it seems so real. Their is no way the author or someone close to her didn't live through something very similar to this.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Falling into You?

    Although this is not really part of the book at the very end someone sings the song Falling Into You and it was so beautiful.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Playing the guitar in the hospital. I won't add anything else, don't want to spoil anything.


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

    The hospital scene with the guitar.


    Any additional comments?

    Unlike the other reviews I didn't cry but it will break your heart for sure.

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

    After nearly 50 books this is the 1st book I would recommend to anyone and everyone. I normally stay away from books with drug content because they always seem to glamorize the street life and although I have no experience with that life I seriously doubt everyone lives happily ever after. This book is what I imagine that life to be. The struggle, money, fun, drugs, death, this book has it all without being unbelievable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    At 19 hours long this book was very detailed and it showed her journey from the beginning to the end. It's long but in noway was I ready for it to be over. I've listened to long books and I always seem to be ready for it to be over already but no this one.


    Did Allyson Johnson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes the characters had different voices. The only problem with the narration was the southern accent. At times the accent was very prominent which is weird because all the characters are from NY. It doesn't take away from the book and to be honest I wouldn't have wanted to listen to strong NY accents since I'm from VA. I can see it bothering those from the North though as they probably don't want to listen to a southern accent for 19 hours.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Truth is Stranger than Fiction, the name of the book Sunny and Jada wrote. Although I think that title/tag is already used elsewhere.


    Any additional comments?

    You won't regret getting this book.

    To satisfy his late father’s wishes, hot and single billionaire Michael Conte must find a bride - someone who will fit into his traditional family back home in Italy - and fast, so his engaged sister will be allowed to wed. With no intention of being tied down, Michael "proposes" to fiery, free-spirited photographer Maggie Ryan: If she will play the part of his fiancée during her trip to Milan for a photo shoot, he will keep away from her married best friend, Alexa, and stop making Maggie nuts with their too-close-for-comfort flirtations. But once in Italy, sexual tension sparks the hottest no-strings-attached arrangement on any continent....

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not at all. This book was literally the exact same as The Marriage Bargain with different character names and of course the characters from The Marriage Bargain were in this book. Waste of time just listen to the Marriage Bargain twice and save yourself a credit.


    Would you recommend The Marriage Trap to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not really, not only is it a carbon copy of The Marriahe Bargain but it's not even that good of a story. It wasn't horrible at all but nothing memorable either.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite, nothing stood out


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

    It could be a Lifetime movie for sure and it would be an okay movie to watch on a rainy Sunday

In The Husband Trap, the reserved Lady Violet Brantford agrees to swap identities with her vivacious sister.

    Where does The Husband Trap rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of the 50 books I've listened to this one is in my top 10. You will enjoy this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline was completely different then anything I've read. I literally felt so connected with Violet I could feel what she was going through, the anxiety all the way to the love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't have a favorite scene because the entire book is that good. I wanted to listened to it in one day.


    If you could take any character from The Husband Trap out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Violet just so I could listen to her recount the entire story again. I want to hear all over how she felt when she discovered the truth.


    Any additional comments?

    I think anyone would enjoy this book no matter the genre they prefer.

    What did you love best about The Wedding Trap?

    I loved this book! It was a pleasant surprise because I thought it would just be okay. I loved the characters, the storyline, well everything really.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot was so interesting because it's similiar to other books but still different enough that the reader is not sitting there thinking I've heard this storyline before.


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

    She bought the characters alive. At times I felt like I was actually listening to the characters speaking.


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

    Not that I can recall particularly and that's just because it's been awhile since I listened to this book.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book and there are not many books I would actually recommend but this one is a winner for sure.

    Where does The Marriage Bargain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a mix of predictability, romance and fun.


    Which character – as performed by Coleen Marlo – was your favorite?

    No favorite she did a great job with all the characters.


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

    Yes I wanted to listen to it in one sitting and it's rather short so that wouldn't be too difficult to achieve.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was quite enjoyable. The part about the magic spell seemed sort of dumb and didn't really have anything to do with the book. The spell is mentioned briefly at the beginning and the end so that should have been omitted from the storyline.

    Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager back home in Italy. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: Her overprotective family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her. Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off-limits, for the sake of his job and his friendship with Michael.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Marriage Mistake again? Why?

    No and that's simply because I can never go back and listen to a book again. I'm not sure why and I know most people do but I just can't. To me, listening to a book is all about the surprise of what's next so repetitive listening to me would be boring.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Marriage Mistake?

    When the mother caught them in the hotel room. The mother's response was rather interesting and I didn't see that coming.


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

    The Italian accent she used irritated me at first because I couldn't help but imagining Carina as this big boobed bimbo which did not mesh with the writer’s portrayal of this smart, educated, sophisticated woman. A little while into the book I started to enjoy it and it made me feel like I was actually listening to some crazy Italians.


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

    I could have but I didn't have a NEED to listen to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed how Carina matured and found herself by the end of the book.

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story should have ended with this book. This book was simply a filler to hold us over until the next one (and fill the author's pockets) is released and I feel very cheated. I pre-ordered this book, and I've never pre-ordered a book before and once it was over I felt like knowing really happened.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sylvia Day before, how does this one compare?

    It's not a bad story and she has written a lot better books and a lot worse.


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

    I'm not sure I've I have listened to Jill Redfield's performances in the past but she was great.


    Do you think Entwined With You needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Heck yea! This book just ended; just like that it was over. It needed something major to happen and the one thing that was major didn't really feel all that major. (Sorry for the redundant words, I'm literally just at a loss for words for this book.

    What made the experience of listening to Angel Mine the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed this book so much. The storyline was great although predictable at times. It seems sort of strange to have this big production studio in the country with these rich folks walking around. BUT it was still a great read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angel has to be my favorite character. She's this little innocent girl that everyone falls in love with and the narratior's voice matched this energeic little girl so well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the mother left Angel with her dad with no warning. It was great to hear him fall right into daddy mode like he's been parenting forever.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme emotions. Such a delightful PG13 book.
