    When A-list movie star Ryan Christensen ducked into her pub to escape his screaming fans, never in a million years did Taryn Mitchell think her life was about to change forever. But now, eight months later, after a whirlwind romance, Taryn wakes up in Ryan’s Hollywood hotel room to find a diamond to die for on her left ring finger - and her face splashed across the cover of every gossip magazine. Ryan’s very public proposal is catnip to the tabloids, his management team is worried, and Taryn must figure out how a small town girl like her fits into his glittering world.

    What made the experience of listening to Love Unrehearsed the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the story and the continuation from book 1. Can't wait for Book 3.

    MM doesn't overact, doesn't read like a robot. She is a comfortable reader.

    When a patch of ice sends attorney Ginger Paulson head-over-high-heels down a flight of stairs, she has no one to care for her young son and her invalid father - until lethally sexy Kane McKay shows up at the hospital, determined to prove his cowboy chivalry. Past experience has inoculated her against take-charge men, but even Ginger isn't immune to Kane's invasive charm and Built Ford Tough body.

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

    No. I'd recommend reading it instead


    How could the performance have been better?

    There are too many, too long pauses. It is frustrating. If I speed up the narration the pauses are manageable but the speech is not right. She speaks in spurts and although I love the Rough Riders and the McKays, I don't know if I can stand to listen to any more.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    What made the experience of listening to This Man the most enjoyable?

    Edita Brychta takes a great story and makes it extraordinary. Her narration is flawless.


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

    I did read the book, and I loved it, her voice and inflections bring it to life.


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

    It was very erotic and arousing.

    Would you listen to A Million Dirty Secrets again? Why?

    Yes. If there was a change in the female narrator.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The female narrator sounded like a teenager, not a 24 year old. Made the secrets even dirtier but not in a good way. Mr Davis was great, sexy-sounding and easy to listen to.

    Would you try another book from Jennifer Probst and/or Anne Johnstonbrown?

    Jennifer yes. Anne no


    What didn’t you like about Anne Johnstonbrown’s performance?

    The over-pronunciation and over-acting of every word ruined a story that could have been entertaining.


    Did Executive Seduction inspire you to do anything?

    Listen to the previews of a narrator I have not yet heard

    Everything always seems to fall into place for 24-year-old Aubrey Jenson, except for when it comes to her luck with men. Bad boys always draw her in and crush her heart, and Black Falcon's lead guitarist, Riff, is no exception. After sharing a few wild nights together, she leaves him behind, knowing a guy like Riff isn't the relationship type. When she returns to New York, she tries to get the passion she felt in Riff's arms out of her head by dating Isaac, a successful representative at Center Stage Marketing. Just when she thinks she's forgotten Riff, she's forced to see him again.

    How could the performance have been better?

    I'm sure Allen Steele is a great narrator for some books. He was the wrong choice for this book. His voice was to have reflected a character of 28-32? Every time he spoke the character was no longer a hot young rock star, he was a grizzled 40-50 year old. Very distracting. Just let Aletha George do the whole thing.

    The spirited Wylder sisters continue to scandalize the ton in Isabella Bradford’s witty and winsome trilogy. This time, the most impulsive of the siblings meets her match: a charming rake determined to save her from an arranged marriage. The youngest of the Wylder girls - and the last left unwed - Lady Diana is also the most willful, a trait that’s leading her ever closer to dishonorable disaster. While her family’s solution is a fast and excruciatingly respectable marriage, Diana can’t imagine being wed to the very staid and dull Lord Crump.

    This requires a British accent, not only for conversations but for thoughts and descriptions. The American accent distracts from the story.
