    When FBI analyst Tara Jacobs' fellow agent and best friend goes missing while investigating a sex ring, Tara goes undercover as a submissive in a Dallas BDSM club called Dominion. But no man can top a woman with Tara's moxie convincingly enough - until an edgy, dangerous dom takes control of the scene and sets her heart racing with a single commanding glance. Too bad he's also the man who stole her innocence years ago - and the one to whom she will never submit.

    If you could sum up Belong to Me in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, hot, sexy!


    Which character – as performed by Lexi Maynard – was your favorite?

    I loved Logan. I did not think I would like him this much, based upon Past book descriptions. However, Shayla created a bad ass Navy Seal with a sweet, loving heart.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of my favorite books in the series. Impossible to stop listening to! Not believable, but hot, erotic, and strong characters. Always a good love story in the end!

    Colton stole my heart. He wasn't supposed to, and I sure as hell didn't want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist. Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint and I am most definitely the sinner.

    This book was so much better than first. The story progressed with more detail, emotion, turmoil, and passion. The narration was a little better this time around.

    In a world full of willing women, I'm a challenge to the roguish and achingly handsome Colton Donavan. A man used to getting exactly what he wants in all aspects of life. He's the reckless bad boy constantly skating that razor-thin edge toward out of control, on and off of the track.

    Not a lot going on this book. Bad boy meets quiet nice girl, fun things happen, and then book abruptly ends. The narration is extremely clinical and devoid of emotion.

    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.

    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...

    Where does Tied with Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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?

    Not this book! This book was much weaker than the rest of the series.

    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.
