    Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives - and he can’t talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called SOS Inc. Created by a former Navy SEAL, SOS Inc. helps anyone in desperate need - which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations.

    Would you listen to Flashpoint again? Why?

    This was my second time listening to this story and it was just as pleasurable. It is a tight story with periods are good angst.


    What other book might you compare Flashpoint to and why?

    All the Queen's Men by Linda Howard. Somewhat similar plots. Linda writes great love scenes and tension building while Suzanne's stories are fast paced and are engrossing. Both are great books.


    Which character – as performed by Melanie Ewbank and Patrick G. Lawlor – was your favorite?

    Patrick's rendition of Decker was perfect.


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

    Absolutely, if only I could have.


    Any additional comments?

    I am starting to really appreciate books with both a male and female narrator. At least one of them captures the essence of the character and it carries you through the story.

    Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she's just found the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a wolf Wyr and current detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime - and, as Alice oh-so-inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate. But the sudden connection Riehl and Alice feel is complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again. And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.

    Would you listen to Divine Tarot again? Why?

    Probably after a while. The narration was fantastic but the stories were only really good, not great.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the cuteness factor of the wyre identity of the heroine in True Colour.


    What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

    She does a great variety of voices and her men sound like men.


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

    Not quite but I could listen to this narrator read anything and I think it would enhance any story.


    Any additional comments?

    Both stories in this book were good and I would recommend reading it if you are a fan of the Elder Races.

    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.

    What did you love best about Breakable?

    The narrator was heaven. Lord, he could make anything sound sexy, he was that good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breakable?

    Half way through the book, when the perspective became that of a teenage Landon. LOL


    What does Zachary Webber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OMG……he makes the book. Is there such thing as a book boyfriend voice?

    Mr. Webber, please hurry and do more books.

No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Simses’s performances?

    Absolutely not!!! She may be able to moderate her high, squeaky little girl voice but she can't do a male voice. I hate to sound mean but I just listened to this on my way home and it was excruciating. Sorry.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't buy a book with this narrator in the future. It was that bad.

    Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis, and staying more or less happily single. Ten years ago Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart - an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thank you very much. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting, and playing matchmaker to her friends. But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town....

    What does Amy Rubinate bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does great voices. I love her Mrs. J.


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

    No, it wasn't that engrossing.


    Any additional comments?

    Cute situations but too much stalling on the relationship and the matchmaking was at times was an unnecessary distraction from the base story. IMHO, her dog didn't get as much FaceTime in this book as others have had in the past. She writes great stories about animal love i.e. Catch of the Day, her best work. :)

    Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

    It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly. But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable....

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

    Lots of yummy bits.

Detective Kara Gilligan of the supernatural task force has the ability to summon demons to her aid, but she herself is pledged to serve a demonic lord. And now, people who've hurt Kara in the past are dropping dead for no apparent reason. To clear her name and save both the demon and human worlds, she's in a race against the clock and in a battle for her life that just may take her to hell and back.

    The first %75 was just filler that didn't do anything to progress the story or the series. It was such a shame as the other books were magic. The last quarter or less was really good and what I had been waiting for but just a bit to late to impress me.

    Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best - but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option---even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it's not a wayward vamp she has to track. It's an archangel gone bad.

    His mission: Night Wing. The revolutionary test plane with a top-secret weapons system was Colonel Joe "Breed" Mackenzie's #1 priority. And weapons expert Caroline Evans was his #1 distraction. True, the stubborn blonde was giving him the cold shoulder, but Joe hadn't become the best of the best by giving up. Then he discovered someone on the inside was sabotaging Night Wing, and with her late hours and specialized expertise, Caroline seemed the obvious choice.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mackenzie's Mission to be better than the print version?

    No, the narrator's intonation and inflections were off at times and he could have done a much more masculine hero's voice. Considering how often it was mention how deep and rumbling his voice was. A bit of a disappointment in that department.


    What does Dennis Boutsikaris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He didn't improve the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Loins were mentioned way too many times but that is to be expected with the publish date. Linda Howard is still a great story teller.
