    Living paycheck to paycheck in Paris, American book translator Chloe Underwood would give anything for some excitement and passion - even a little danger. So when she's offered a lucrative weekend gig translating at a business conference in a remote château, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.

    Overall

    I loved this. The story wasn't the usual romance I listen to and enjoy, it was more like 007's love life, if he totally fell for one of the innocent women standing at the craps tables with him. The story was well crafted, intriguing and capturing. I stayed up 'til the wee hours and found myself hoping for breaks at work to continue listening to find out what would happen next. Sebastian is not your typical hero, but he is oh so hot.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    This book was a little outside my norm but was recommended to me by friends.
    Hounded, book 1 in the series, was funny, engaging, and well written. I liked the characters a lot. Everyone had enough depth and personality to leave me wanting to get to know them better in future books.
    I will definitely listen to the next book in the series. The narrator, Luke Daniels has a great voice to listen to, kept a great rhythm, gave each character enough distinction I could easily follow, and delivered the lines with timing that kept me laughing.

    King Grim Vasteri is the strongest and most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire. He is the King of Luda, blood brother to the Emperor, and his line will die with him. He will have no offspring for no female would join with him for once he was scarred he was considered "unfit". The Tornian Empire has been dying ever since the great infection caused the birth of females to become a rarity. Since then they have been searching the known universes for compatible females.

    Story

    This purchase was a leap for me. The audio version was entertaining and the sound effects were kind of cheesy but I dug it.
    The male voices, by Mr. James, were good and bad. He clearly wanted everyone to have there own voice but a couple sounded cartoonish. Overall I liked the characters both narrators brought to life and I liked that most of the reactions and behaviors read as true.
    The story itself had more complexity than I'd have thought and a new world with people and politics were brought to life for me.
    Overall, totally worth it and I will purchase the next in the series.

    Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back. The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge because - surprise! - Rosie is pregnant. Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book and recommend it as a follow up to The Rosie Project.
    I had a little harder time getting into the story of Don and Rosie than I did in the first book but I still ended up laughing and trying not to cry just as before.
    Rosie wasn't as likable to me through most of the story, she wasn't as tolerant of Don's quirks, but this book is really more about Don's journey into fatherhood.
    Read it, better yet, listen to it, you'll like it.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    What did you love best about Some Girls Bite?

    I stumbled across this series and gave it a shot. I am so glad I did. The story is action, mystery and relationship based, instead of just romance. It reminds me more of a Patricia Briggs than a Lynsay Sands. I like that each story wraps up but there is definitely a continuing story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the slow build of the possible romance between Ethan and Merit but that in the mean time she is working thru the evolution of her other relationships with friends, family, her new self, and others.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    The narrator is great. I read the reviews before purchasing and they gave me pause but I think Cynthia does a fantastic job bringing a voice to each of the characters. I was never confused and I felt like the emotions were right on.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    If you could sum up Free: I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, sassy, engaging


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gigi is a character I liked in the first of the series and I'm glad to get to get a little more of her story as an adult. I also really enjoyed touching base with the rest of the crew from Half-Moon Hollow.


    Any additional comments?

    The books in this series are exactly what you'd want them to be, smartly written, funny and engaging. All of the characters are a kick and Amanda Ronconi brings them to life in a way that's fun to listen to. These are light, feel good and so much fun!

    Overall

    The characters were likable, had driven purpose to do what they thought was right, and were intelligent. I enjoyed the banter they shared, and for as sex driven as this story was, definitely erotic, it took place in a surprisingly complex world. I do believe I will listen to the next one in the reading order, as soon as my cheeks quit burning.

    Rachel has always been a good girl--until her 30th birthday, when her best friend Darcy throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé Dex. Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for Dex. She prays for fate to intervene, but when she makes a choice she discovers that the lines between right and wrong are blurry, endings aren't always neat, and you have to risk all to win true happiness.

    Overall

    This story just left me feeling cold. The characters and story were well written but I was looking for something a little more "feel good" and this wasn't it.
    A romance based on cheating is a hard sell anyway and it's hard to stand up for the protagonist when she isn't taking responsibility for her actions and is constantly rationalizing them by pointing out what a jerk her friend is.
    The friend is selfish, so it was disgruntling to find myself feeling bad for her. The boyfriend was weak and I couldn't get on board for someone so spineless, and Rachel, the lead, just seemed to be trying to show how much more she deserved the guy.
    This stuff happens in real life. The story is a much more realistic version than what I wanted it to be but, in real life, I avoid these people.
