    Shadow Ochoa is lying low in the Kansas Territory, waiting for his fellow Texas Rangers—the Hell's Eight brotherhood—to clear his name. That is, until he's unjustly strung up for horse thieving...and pretty Fei Yen intervenes. Invoking a seldomused law, the exotic lady prospector claims Shadow as her husband and rides off with the bridegroom shackled to her buckboard.

    With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

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

    I believe Sylvia Day wanted to 'cash in' on 50 Shades of Grey... but LOST. This book is bad. I read the complete series of "50 Shades", AND it was written in a much classier fashion without the "hard core porn" of this one!!

    I am very disappointed.

    NO ONE UNLESS YOU ARE A COMPLETE PORN LOVER!!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

    NOT AT THIS TIME


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    ???


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

    ANGER AND DISAPPOINTMENT ON THE CRASS - PORNOGRAPHIC SCENES (EVEN WHEN LISTENING, YOU CAN STILL VISUALIZE)

    STORYLINE ALMOST IDENTICAL TO "50 SHADES OF GREY" REALLY?

    FIND ANOTHER OUTLET MS. DAY!

    Beautiful and self-confident businesswoman Rusty Carlson was hurt, terrified and alone with a man she feared. But one thing was certain – she would surely die without his help. Vietnam vet Cooper Landry had a deep-rooted grudge against beautiful women like Rusty. Experience had taught him they were takers. But he’d survived far worse dangers, and this time he’d be damned if he’d let her risk his chance for survival.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Love Nora Roberts. Her books are always a joy to read whether it be a sunny day at the beach or pool or cuddled up by the fire on a chilly night. Each book, though different, all have that dream quality with mystery, suspense, romance and happy endings. Makes you want to be that special character. Thank you to Nora Roberts and her amazing imagination coupled with the ability to put her thoughts into words.


    What other book might you compare The Last Boyfriend to and why?

    All of her Trilogy's are enjoyable.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Next Always to be better than the print version?

    I had rented this book awhile ago from Cracker Barrel and was waiting for book 2. When I found book 2 on Audible, I decided to get book 1 and listen to it again before listening to book 2. Glad I did! This book is a nice story, a bit predictable but easy listening at the beach or while driving!


    What other book might you compare The Next Always to and why?

    All the Trilogy's by Nora Roberts are very easy to listen to and are very enjoyable.


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

    Love his voice and his dramatization!
