    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!

    When Harlow Manning’s rocker father goes on tour, he sends her to Rosemary Beach, Florida, to live with her half-sister, Nan. The problem: Nan despises her. 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.

    I love Abbi Glines.
    I love this series.
    However, this book ends and you are left with your mouth open....like, that's it?!?!
    Harlow and Grant's story is lovely. I love how innocent Harlow is. That is, until Grant gets her to act all naughty!
    Of course you have to read it if you have started this Rosemary Beach series. Worth the credit =)

    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!!!!

    Holy smokes, I wish there were more books like this that Paula Costello could narrate. Geesh, I forgot she was a woman when she put on her Scottish accent....it was soooo hot.

    Don't think twice, click that little button and put it in your cart. You won't regret it.
    You'll thank me later!

    Would you rather know a truth that makes you feel hopeless, or keep believing the lies? Beloved and bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with the spellbinding story of two young people with devastating pasts who embark on a passionate, intriguing journey to discover the lessons of life, love, trust--and above all, the healing power that only truth can bring.

    Would you listen to Hopeless again? Why?

    This book was awesome! I love it when books have unexpected twists and turns....most books are so easy to figure out, but this one just kept me guessing. I love the characters and can't wait to read Losing Hope next...Please Audible hurry up and record it!

    Worth your credit - oh, heck yeah!

    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?

    Katheryne says: "I swoon for the Professor!"
    "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this story...."

    Story
    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...
