    Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?

    What made the experience of listening to Gabriel's Rapture the most enjoyable?

    If you've read Gabriel's Inferno, and you got hooked like I did, you know how important it is to finish out the story. I had to find out if they made it. I had to see if he married his Beatrice. Finding out if the fairy tale romance had a happy ending was important to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Gabriel. I liked that he was so wonderful to her after he found out who she was. He treated her like a princess.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The time in Italy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Get ready for some steamy action...

She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

    Loved, loved, loved book 1.
    Book 2 didn't disappoint as a follow up :)
    This is the authors best trilogy. Have read the other and it was good, but this one was great. Spectacular. Wonderfully delightful.
    The narrator was fantastic as Kiera again and I love her other voices. Her Australian accent is delightful and her performance of Griffin is the best! Griffin is my favorite character in the whole series. Comic relief is always the best :) I giggle whenever his lines are delivered.
    I've listened to this series three times now, and am patiently waiting for the release of book 4, from Kellen's view point.
    Read this side of the story 1st... You won't be disappointed!

    As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise - until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed. All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy.… As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

    This is a beautifully written book in Lucas/ Landon's point of view. The companion book was amazing and I read it first, but there is so much more detail to the story that comes out in this version. I loved hearing about his adolescence spent on the beach :)
    The narrator is awesome. Sometimes they don't match up with the tone/ feel of the book, but this one absolutely does :)

    Playboy Cage owns the apartment, and he hosts a revolving door of people, in and out, at all times. Most of them are long-legged hot girls who are never there more than a night or two. When Cage’s new roommate, Marcus, enters the picture, he’s just looking to nurse a broken heart. But there’s one particular semi-frequent regular who catches his eye. Willow - 'Low' - is the one Cage wants to marry. But the two of them are night and day, and Marcus can’t see how Low puts up with all of Cage’s womanizing.

    Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island. When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

    I've listened to this series several times, I love the writing! Abbi Glines is one of my favorite authors.
    Jax and Sadie are great characters to start a series with. Everyone loves the idea of being able to snag a rock star, even if you are just the maid :)
    Sadie is the best female lead, no one could ever hate her. She is the perfect character to snag the hot unobtainable rocker.

    Emma is content. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her love life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate steps in, and she crashes into a tall, dark, and handsome man - Teren Adams. He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than most people’s. For instance, he’s a "little bit" vampire. He has fangs, incredible hearing, unbelievable speed, and, on occasion, he enjoys drinking a steaming cup of blood. But he’s also very much alive.

    This book was very interesting. I like to see how an author views their vampire world. They are all different, and I love to see what each type of vamp can do in each series. So I was interested with this one because he is a half vamp. That was a new one to me.
    It was sort of boring in the beginning, but I kept on going because I love this author from her series Thoughtless. The author was actually the reason why I even gave this book a shot.
    In the end, I would say again that it was interesting. It could have been a little "dirtier" for my taste, but I'll read the next book to see what happens.

    Overall: Use a credit if you've got one :)

    Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma's boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn't go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past. Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach.

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

    This book is boring compared to the other stories in the series. They are longer and more detailed. The series is simply fantastic! This one is short and the story is all rushed.
    Oh, and the narrators in this book don't compare to the reader (Robert) of all the other books. He is an AMAZING narrator.

    Trust me that you don't have to read this one to know what is going on in the other books in the series. This one could totally be dropped and the world (or should I say lore) would never miss it!

    To sum up: Skip it, but not the others!

Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. Soon passion burns between them.

    So, I'm three books into this series now.(I skipped book .5 because I heard it was useless and terrible, not to mention short) I must say, I very much prefer books 1 and 3 over book two because I love the narration of the werewolf's stories over the vampires.

    Look, everyone likes the vampires, I do too! So don't hate me for saying that. But, there is something creepy about the vampires in this series. They aren't all sparkles in these books. They are dark and creepy.
    BUT - the wolfs...my, my....they are quite a treat.
    I am all about how possessive they are once they have found their mate. The one they will protect forever, fiercely...it is dreamy.

    I won't go on and on about the details, because you need to hear it for yourself. If you've read books 1 & 2 book 3 is a must.

    Put it in your cart now, you won't regret it =)
