    When Sinners tie the knot, things don't always go as planned. Lead guitarist Brian Sinclair may have finally won Professor Myrna Evans heart and her consent to wed, but being part of a high-maintenance band might just ruin his long-anticipated wedding day and steamy wedding night. Will the couple ever find a moment's peace or are some things more important than a night of uninhibited love-making?

    What made the experience of listening to Sinners at the Altar the most enjoyable?

    It was interested how Cunning combined the epilogues into one book to give the book a finale.


    What about Justine O. Keef’s performance did you like?

    Justine does an excellent job differentiating between all the characters/voices. Each voice sounded like a different person.


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

    No, not really. The book was divided into an epilogue from each book, so it was easy to pause.

    Somehow, after everything they've been through, Jake Caplin and Charley Redford made their way back to one another. But finding each other and staying together are two completely different things.When Charley's world is flipped upside down, she begins to question the decisions she's made since her arrival in Edinburgh, and she believes that she must sacrifice her love for Jake to keep what she holds most dear.

    Story

    I did not like how the book started, jumping so far ahead into the story. It just didn't make sense. I found the back and forth in time irritating, as well as Charlie's stubborn view throughout the story. The story was stale for a good chunk of the book. The ending was better than the first book, more closure. My favorite part was Amsterdam.

    Charley Redford was just an ordinary girl until Jake Caplin moved to her small town in Indiana and convinced her she was extraordinary. Almost from day one Jake pulled Charley into the deep and promised he was right there with her. But when a tragic incident darkened Jake's life, he waded out into the shallows and left Charley behind. Almost four years later Charley thinks she's moved on. That is until she takes a study year abroad in Edinburgh and bumps into none other than Jake Caplin...

    Kristen did a great job writing this series. This book is much hotter than the rest of the books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tied with Me?

    The most memorable part is when Matt took her to the club for the first time.


    What about Jennifer Mack’s performance did you like?

    Jennifer Mack did an excellent job narrating the entire series. She has a great voice and brought you right into the story.

    Could you see Forever with Me being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Her father has let her down her whole life. Her brother betrayed her in the worst way possible. And her past relationship experiences with men have been less than great. Now Lyla is pouring all her energy into her band, Vintage. So when they receive an offer to sign with TMS Records, it seems that things are finally turning around. The last thing that Lyla wants is a man getting in the way. Tom Carter loves women. More accurately, Tom enjoys screwing lots of women

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

    No, I do not recommend. It was a big let down from the first two. The female narrator was very green and did not bring out the characters or interest in the book. The male narrator did a good job.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Aletha George and Nelson Hobbs ?

    Kate Rudd


    Do you think Taming the Storm needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No follow up book needed.

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

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

    Absolutely! Deborah Harkness is a fabulous author/story teller and Jennifer Ikeda was the perfect narrator for this series. She was outstanding!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story contained so much detail and turns. Jennifer was thorough and did not skip over anything in her story.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Ikeda – was your favorite?

    Jennifer had a many characters to portrayal and many accents. It was easy to differentiate between characters and she was spot on. Amazing performance!! My favorite character was Matthew, although I liked her Isabeau's French accent.


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

    NO, this is a really long book. Considering the amount of detail, at times, needed a break or else I started to miss things.

    It's been 12 years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved. Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed, and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both 14. Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect.

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

    Very entertaining book. There are several rock star series out there now. I would say it matches up to them


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake of course. Got to love the sexy rockers with a difficult past and finding the right girl to finally settle down with.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I do not feel the right narrator was cast for this book. The narrator, although very good, did not match up to the characters. She is a better fit for a Jane Austin type of book.


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

    No extreme reactions, but at times hard to put down. I listed to the book twice, so I did enjoy the story.
