    After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look and her taste for bad boys. So why is she lusting for William Chase with his tattoo-covered biceps and steel-toed boots? The man blows things up for a living!

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Would you consider the audio edition of And One Last Thing... to be better than the print version?

    I read alot of the reviews and was discouraged by purchasing this audio. But I threw caution to the wind and said what the heck. So worth the money and what a story line. It was funny, snarky and yes some drama. I dont want to give anything away.


    Don't pay attn to anyone saying this isnt worth it, everyone has different tastes and sooo worth it. give it a chance and use the credit or $$. You wont be sorry.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They are good

    Now Cannie's back. After her debut novel - a fictionalized (and highly sexualized) version of her life - became an overnight bestseller, she dropped out of the public eye and turned to writing science fiction under a pseudonym. She's happily married and has settled into a life that's wonderfully predictable. As preparations for her daughter Joy's bat mitzvah begin, everything seems right in Cannie's world. Then Joy discovers the novel Cannie wrote years before and suddenly finds herself faced with what she thinks is the truth about her own conception - the story her mother hid.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Well let me say this was not worth a credit at all. The story is long and dull. I can understand the child wanting to know about the book her mother wrote. But wow going from the past to the future to many times. I would stop listing and turn it back on and wonder if i missed anything. This audio will be finished, if i purchased i will listen no matter how bad it is. My day just lagged on and keeping my eyes open just so hard.

    With this book being a sequel to the first Good in Bed I thought it would be just as good.


    Sighhh, I really dont like giving bad reviews but i wasted a credit on this and feel i should get my credit back.



    Has Certain Girls turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Oh yes both of them could of went the extra mile.


    Was Certain Girls worth the listening time?

    NO

    Anita Blake needs to be concentrating on a dangerous situation: The ardeur, the sexual power that flows between Anita and Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, and Richard, the volatile werewolf who loves her passionately, is reaching new levels, perhaps evolving into something altogether new. The ardeur seems to be choosing new lovers for Anita, acting with a will of its own. As Jean-Claude says, the ardeur is hunting powerful prey.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I couldnt keep up who was with whom. Seems like she was sick alot and needed to FEED. Well never heard of it. Hey I like romance/erotica as the next. But wow just bad.


    What could Laurell K. Hamilton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Clearer story line and not to jump all around.


    What didn’t you like about Cynthia Holloway’s performance?

    She was horrible and just did no justice to the book at all.

    Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.

    What would have made Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men better?

    Wow this really didnt have an interesting story line at all. I normally listen to audio books while I am working. This one made me so sleepy and board its just a horror and waste of my credit.


    What was most disappointing about Molly Harper’s story?

    All of it


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was horrible and a better narrator should of been picked. Fake country accent etc. I have had better narrator's will bad books.


    What character would you cut from Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men?

    All of them

    Would you listen to Undead and Unwed again? Why?

    Sarcastic, witty, weird plot but funny. And of course there are so many different therorys about vampires and how the live etc. But hey worth the money


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Undead and Unwed?

    In the pool and not realizing that she was consummating their relationship.


    What about Nancy Wu’s performance did you like?

    I think she could of done a better job with the characters and the voice changes. It was pretty the same sound and sometimes he sounded she was right on top of the mic


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Two different sittings

    At last something that has more Adam in it, even tho there was alot of Mercy. But Wow the last book was not exciting. I dont want to give away anything, but worth spending the money on.

    The women at Vows - a wedding planning company in Connecticut - make it their business to create memorable events for couples sealing their bonds. And though the bonds among Parker, Emma, Mac, and Laurel may not be official, they are very real - and equally worthy of celebration.

    When I purchased this audio, i listen to the sample and thought hey, this prob be a good book. Im sure the paperback is great. But the woman that narrates this book. I almost passed out at work.
