    Rachel Stone is a widow and single mother, broke and alone. Worse, her late husband, a televangelist, stole five million dollars, none of which came to her. Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

    Overall

    I loved Nobody's Baby But Mine and knew this book would be every bit as good. I wasn't disappointed. It has some humor but will pull at your heart too. I found the first time I listened to this - I went through a whole box of kleenex. I love the characters. I highly recommend if you want to hear see what happens to the Bonners after Cal and Jane's story.

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    "Good Story."
    Overall

    After reading Deeper - I was leery about how the story would go as Deeper left me very sad. Hart's stories are a lot like Nicholas Sparks - his storylines have real tragedy. The ending was much better than Deeper. I will continue to read Hart, where I won't read Sparks anymore. When I look to romance I prefer stories that have less sad. Worth the time. I plan on getting Naked next month.

    Twenty years ago she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy.

    Joie says: "Terrible Summary"
    "Loved it but It the ending was unexpected"
    Overall

    Great story, a Sad Story. You will enjoy it - it has an unexpected ending.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    amyjh98 says: "Not very exciting"
    "Entertaining as always"
    Overall

    This was definitely a typical NR Romance-Suspense, although she does better with JD Robb's stories she has delivered again. If you liked this one you'll like Black Hills too - same type of story. I like where she is going with the story line - it makes for better reading. Something to offer rather than the same old romance..boy meets girl - girl hates boy - boy changes girls mind - girl like boy and keeps him. NR puts boy and girl together because of trouble. I think she achieved what she wanted -- it is entertaining and takes you away for awhile. Some of the other reviewers said, if you love dogs - you'll like this story. I am not much of a dog lover but I liked this book.

    Nicholas Sparks, best selling author of A Bend in the Road and A Walk to Remember, returns with this touching tale of two vulnerable people who find love in the eye of a storm.

    Karla says: "Not a "happily ever after" book!"
    "Depressing"
    Overall

    I thought I would try one of Sparks books but - should have went with my first instinct. I don't care for his story telling - his books are always so depressing.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

    Teleasa says: "WOW!!"
    "Great Story"
    Overall

    I loved this story. I have not read Briggs before. She tells a great story. Of course it could also be that Holter Graham is the narrator. I love most his voice.

    Opening night at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness - and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle.

    Liz says: "Another good Dallas"
    "Don't bother"
    Overall

    Okay I love all the JD Robb books - these audiobooks are not worth it though. Nora uses Susan Eriksen for alot her books, she did a great job with the Key books but does not do Dallas and Roarke's voices very well. Peabody is from Arizona - but Susan uses a Boston or New York accent for her. She just does not do JD Robb books justice. I was very disappointed because I would have bought all the of the audiobooks as I did with the actual books. Again Susan was not a good choice for this series.

    Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey. Elena Michaels is a werewolf.

    Autumn says: "My favorite Audio title"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    This is the first Kelley Armstrong Book I've read -I found it entertaining and she puts a different spin on the werewolf history. I enjoyed the narrator as well. I listened to the samples from Armstong's other Audible books but opted not to download them because I didn't care for the narrator's voice. I think the narrator will make or break an audible book. I recommend this one.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    MSEreads says: "Another CHARMER from SEP!"
    "Hilarious!!!"
    Overall

    This story is hilarious - so funny that it will have you rolling on the floor and crying. Anna Fields is one to the best narrators that Audible uses.
