    This is what happened: I met him at the candy store. He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you, this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss' wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.

    This story was not what I suspected it to be, and there was no indication of what I was getting into from the blurb, so in one way I felt a little tricked into being pulled into a story addressing issues far more serious than I was looking for.

    It didn't take long before I started to suspect, what was simmering beneath the surface of the main character, but by half way through I needed to see Elle overcome her past. It was a good book, but I was looking for sexy romantic/erotic escapism, but got sucked into the "overcoming child-hood trauma and/or neglect" story which I purposely stopped reading years ago (now I think about it - around the time I became a parent myself).

    The narration was good, but male voices were not great, it didn't spoil the experience but there are some female narrators who do great male voices (I'm yet to hear a male narrator who can go a great female voice LOL).

    Humor and romance mix delightfully in Katie MacAlister’s New York Times best-selling novels. In this installment of the Dark Ones series, Pia is discovering that wedded bliss with a vampire is a very elusive proposition. With her hubby not trusting her, and his best friend missing, Pia finds solace in her plain old Seattle life. But that all changes when she and Kristoff are falsely implicated in crimes against vampire-kind.

    In Stolen, on a mission for her own elite pack, Elena Michaels is lured into the net of ruthless Internet billionaire Tyrone Winsloe, who has funded a bogus scientific investigation of the "other races" and their supernatural powers. Kidnapped and studied in his underground lab deep in the Maine woods, these paranormals - witches, vampires, shamans, werewolves - are then released and hunted to the death in a real-world video game.

    Jay says: "great story...wrong choice for narrator"
    "Still good story"
    Overall

    This was a good follow-on from "Bitten", I preferred the Narrator from Bitten, the new narrator reminds me of one of the "Golden Girls", I think it was "Bea", the blond ditsy one. Anyhoo, I enjoyed being able to continue along with characters I got to like in the last book, I enjoyed "Elena" becoming more accepting of herself, and her relationship with Clay had obviously grown and had become happier. The story was good, but I would have enjoyed more interaction between Elena and Clay, then again just more of Clay - LOL. I would have liked Elana's time in captivity to be a bit shorter and her time plotting her revenge with Clay a bit longer, but that's just my two cents worth. Author has introduced lots of new and interesting characters and this is obviously where she decided to extend her story into a 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"
    "Good Story, Good Narrator"
    Overall

    I really liked this book, an interesting take on werewolf theme, and a different type of romantic relationship. I enjoyed the dynamic between Elena and Clay, both not perfect, but that made the relationship more interesting. I enjoyed the descriptions of Elena's experience in wolf form. I also like the narrators voice, and enjoyed listening to her, which is important.

    One Fifth Avenue, the Art Deco beauty towering over one of Manhattan's oldest and most historically hip neighborhoods, is a one-of-a-kind address, the sort of building you have to earn your way into--one way or another. For the women in Candace Bushnell's new novel, One Fifth Avenue, this edifice is essential to the lives they've carefully establishhed--or hope to establish.

    Overall

    Sorry, I dont usually bother giving a bad review, but this one is good if you are suffering insomnia. No endearing characters, the only character I found likeable had a very small part of the story, nothing really happened, If I were reading this book rather than listening, I would have put it down with a yawn and probably forgotten about it.
