    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.

    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....

    What did you love best about Down London Road?

    The voice of the narrator was amazing. Her American accent was great.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ok story. A couple of the issues could be hot spots for some readers.


    What about Elle Newlands’s performance did you like?

    Her speed of speech, intonation, various accents....I could go on. She really made the story that much better.

    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.

    If you could sum up Reaper's Property in three words, what would they be?

    Paced, Hot and Engrossing.


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

    Stella had a great voice for Marie (normal sounding and intelligent). Horse was pretty good too and all the characters were definable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lots of yummy bits.

    The audiobook was as good as the ebook.

    The homicide beat in Louisiana isn't just terrifying, it's demonic. 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.

    What did you like best about Sins of the Demon? What did you like least?

    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.

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    The sample for Beautiful Stranger sounds much better. So I will likely listen to this author again.

    Robert Petkoff ROCKS!!!! He really needs to narrate MORE books. He is fantastic. His female voices are distinct and not cliché, the male voices are to die for. He really made a good book great.
