    Tesla Martin is drifting pleasantly through life, slinging lattes at Morningstar Mocha, enjoying the ebb and flow of caffeine-starved customers, devoted to her cadre of regulars. But none of the bottomless-cup crowd compares with Meredith, a charismatic force of nature who can coax intimate tales from even the shyest of Morningstar’s clientele.

    What made the experience of listening to The Space Between Us the most enjoyable?

    The story line captured you from the first words you hear until the last.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The pace of the story was excellent with just enough of the main character back ground to under stand why she wants the things she wants.


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

    I loved the voice of the narrator.I felt more connected to the characters through her voice.


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

    The second to last chapter when the main character chooses her self over begging for what she really wants.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the best books I've listen to in a long time. It is one of the reason Megan Hart is one of my favorite authors. Her books are always written in a way to make you really think how you would react if you ever found your self in the situations her characters find themselves in.

    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this book to several co-workers and friends, The way Joycelyn was dealing with her grief was so sad and they way she opened her heart to the people around her without realizing it was great to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Dublin Street?

    The way Braden made Joceyln realize she couldn't run from his sisters health problems. I also liked how he made her realize she couldn't hide her love from him.


    Which character – as performed by Paula Costello – was your favorite?

    Braden was definitely my favorite character. The narrator did a wonderful job, every character had their own voice and it wasnt confusing at all.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me both laugh and cry a few times

    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....

    If you could sum up Beautiful Bastard in three words, what would they be?

    Best sex ever!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the beautiful bastard the most. I liked listening to his side of the situation that he and Chole found them selves themselves in.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very end when the beautiful bastard finally realized that he loved Chole. I loved how raw his process of realization was.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The best hate-fill sex you've ever seen!

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended it to everyone I know. This book is one of the best books I've ever listen and/or read. EVER!!! This series feels so real you might start believing your listening to a true story, not the fiction it claims to be :).


    What other book might you compare Reflected in You to and why?

    I know a lot of die hard fifty shades readers won't want to hear or admit this but I think this series is even better. This book and the series stands out in it's genre. I feel like the characters are real and not fantasy. I hurt when they hurt. I want to help them get to a healthy place, a healthy relationship. I feel as if I am on a journey with them. They almost feel real to me like they are people I know.


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

    This is the second story I've listened by this narrator, bared to you being the first, and I enjoyed her narrating as I did the first time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book will have you on an emotional roller coaster ride just like the one Eva and Gideon are on. I cried in the middle and at the very end. Then I cried when I realize I will have to wait two more months before Entwined With You will be released.


    Any additional comments?

    This book will make you believe in true love.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bared to You to be better than the print version?

    Since I've only listened to the book all I can say is I enjoyed listening to it immensely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The instantaneous chemistry between Eva and Gideon.


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

    No, but looking forward to it.


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

    The way Eva made sure to take care of Gideon after one of his worst nightmares where he could have hurt her. She made sure he knew she would never leave him that was heart wrenching.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is perfect for listeners who need to be weened off of Fifty Shades. Even with that said, Eva and Gideon's story is much more severe than Christen's and Anna. That story had one character overcoming several types of abuse from his past. With this explosive story we have two people trying to over come their abusive past together. Their attraction, love, and misery are immediate and you can't help but pray for them to over come their fears. Plus the people that surround them seem to need as much help as they do. In the end you find your self wondering how this couple will find their " Happily Ever After".

    Tessa Russo is the mother of two young children and the wife of a renowned pediatric surgeon. Despite her own mother's warnings, Tessa has recently given up her career to focus on her family and the pursuit of domestic happiness. From the outside, she seems destined to live a charmed life. Valerie Anderson is an attorney and single mother to six-year-old Charlie - a boy who has never known his father.

    Liatris says: "Tough Listen"
    "A Must Listen!!!"
    Overall

    It's been 4 hours since I finish listening to this book and I can't get it out of my head. I read mixed reviews about this book on B&N website, but downloaded it any way. It was worth it. A must read or a must listen. The narrator was wonderful and the characters complexed... I liked the little cameo's in this book about Dex and Rachel... I am hoping Giffin will update us on Tessa and Nick in one of her future novels. I loved this book as much as my favorite Giffin Novel Something Borrowed...

    P.S... This book will make you cry...
