    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...

    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.

    Isn't that terrible? That I review a book that I couldn't even finish listening all the way through?!
    Well I am :)
    Just a snip it of a review though... Promise! I won't hoot and holler about the performance or so,so writing.
    I'll just say it wasn't what I expected and wasn't for me.
    That sounds classier, right? =)

    As for you- I would risk my credit on this one. They are too precious to waste.

    Meet Shane Baxter. Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn't just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he was the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn't care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there's a new player in the game, and she's much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

    Story

    Of course bad boys are always fantastic to read about. Who doesn't like hearing about a guy that's so hot, done jail time, and runs a whole neighborhood....no body wants to mess with him. That's Bax, and he's easy to lust after. The whole bad boy, other side of the tracks was a bit off the grid for me, and unbelievable at some times, but the smoking hot steamy scenes are great despite that :)

    The book was all in all- good for me, not fantastic or over the top, but good nevertheless.
    I don't expect every book I get to knock my socks off, so that's ok.
    Trust me, I've had plenty where I can't even get through them, so that's not a bad review!

    End of the day- get this one if you have nothing else stronger on your wish list.

    Dewayne Falco has been a fixture in Sea Breeze since his appearance in the very first book, Breathe. He always had the one-liners and smart remarks that made you laugh. But there was never any insight into his life. Other than being best friends with Marcus, Preston, and Rock all his life, you knew little else. Until now. In Hold on Tight, Dewayne's past pain is brought front and center while he realizes not all was lost - and that there may be hope for him yet.

    Story

    First off, let me just tell you that I'm obsessed with this series. The books just get better with every listen. But this book pulled at my heart!
    I've never been so emotionally involved in one of Abbi's stories, until this one.
    Usually they are just dreamy listens, with just enough smoking hot loving going on to make me blush, but not too much that it makes me cringe and turn it off :)
    But this book- it pulled at my heart. I was a young mother too, and I literally got completely invested in this book. I felt for Sienna, I literally cried with her, for her, about the whole crappy turn of events her life took :(
    You just expect in books like these that they will have a happy ending- and that's fantastic, because that's what I like to listen to. But along this novel's journey, the twists and turns had my jaw drop to the floor, had tears in my eyes and laughed out loud.
    And I'll just note that I love the narrators in this series- absolutely Love them both.

    Point blank- use your credit for this one. Don't think twice about any Sea Breeze novel- they are all amazing =)

    You really cannot go wrong with this series, I fell in love with this author in the first book, listening to Davie's story - the hot guitar player.
    My obsession grew with the second book (you cant help but fall in love with Mal) and now I'm completely on alert for all future novels that she releases!
    Let me tell you that I listen to several audiobooks from category a week, and this one (this series) checks all my boxes for making it an epic listen!
    Narrator is awesome! She does the other character voices amazingly, she isn't annoying at all, love her.
    The writing, combined with the narration had me laughing so hard out loud at some points too- which is quite rare in a book!
    Mal is such an amazing comic relief in this series, this book made me want to go back and listen to the first two books again because now I remember how great this series really is after having to stay up all night to finish this wonderfully written book 3.
    Now I can't wait to get Benny's story- I hope it comes out soon! I need to know what happens with that guy already =)

    Point blank- add it to your cart, using your credit on this book is so worth it!

Harlow has to keep her head down if she wants to get through the next nine months, which seems easy enough. Until gorgeous Grant Carter walks out of Nan’s room in nothing but his boxer briefs.

    War has taken everything from me. My family. My home. My innocence. In a country blasted by war and wracked by economic hardship, a young orphan girl like me has very few options when it comes to survival...Thus, I do what I must to live, to eat, and I try very hard to not consider the cost to my soul. My heart is empty, and my existence brutal. The one impossibility in my life is love. And then I meet HIM.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The story was OK - just OK, not great. I loved Jascinda's other books falling into you and falling into us, but was let down by this one - mainly due to the terrible narration.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Nope


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    No idea - couldn't get over this narrators voice - never, ever want to hear it again!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    It was so over done! I don't want to hear all this panting and moaning and grinding of teeth and heavy breathing - so much heavy breathing. My lord, were these narrators going for the overdone horrific performance they ended up with? Did no one listen to this through the whole book and think that maybe they should tone it down a lil bit?? Boggles me.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Do NOT buy this audiobook. If you want to read the book, do it the old fashioned way. Buy the kindle version, get a hard copy at the library, read it in brail - anything but listening to this!

    Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

    If you could sum up Simple Perfection in three words, what would they be?

    Unexpected. Brilliant. Love.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the story of Della and Woods. Thank goodness that I have a little closure on what happened to them. I've been wondering since reading Rush and Blaire's story when Blaire pulled the gun on that horrid woman what was going to happen to Della. Now I can sleep easy!


    What does Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Elizabeth Louise - she has an amazing narration voice, and acts - not just reads.


    If you could take any character from Simple Perfection out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Woods - duh. I would eat him for dinner - yum!


    Any additional comments?

    I have to know what happens to Tripp and Bethy now!!! Please Abbi - write their story!!!!
