    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The leading lady for me was extremely annoying. She was not believable . I was so irritated and was tempted to fast forward when the character on what I call tangents.


    What was most disappointing about Lora Leigh’s story?

    I typically really like Lora's stories, this one was just ok for me. The story line was kinda weak not a lot of depth.


    Did Clarissa Knightly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She differentiated the characters.


    Could you see Secret Sins being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt compelled to write a review for this book due to how annoying the leading female character was.

    Would you try another book from E. B. Walters and/or Valerie Gilbert?

    I would try another book for both but Valerie needs to be in a studio and not in the bathroom with the window open on a busy street.


    What other book might you compare Dangerous Love to and why?

    Can't think of any other book to compare its to but listened to the previous book and Valerie was in the same bathroom on the same busy street while narrating the book.


    What didn’t you like about Valerie Gilbert’s performance?

    Sounded as though she was reading the book from the bathroom. Quality was bad.


    Did Dangerous Love inspire you to do anything?

    No

    P. J. and Cole were sharpshooting rivals on the same KGI team and enjoyed a spirited, uncomplicated camaraderie. Until the night they gave in to their desires and suddenly took their relationship one step further. In the aftermath of their one-night stand, they’re called out on a mission that goes terribly wrong, and P. J. walks away from KGI, resolved not to drag her teammates into the murky shadows she’s poised to delve into. Six months later, Cole hasn’t given up his search for P. J., and he’s determined to bring her back home where she belongs.

    Where does Shades of Gray rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Maya Banks and this series so I am a fan. It was good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shades of Gray?

    When PJs nurse friend said friends bail you out of jail and good friends are sitting there next to you in jail. The exchange with her and Cole I enjoyed.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    After listening to Harry on all the other books, the new narrator took some getting used too. I don't think I ever got used to it. Most of the voices were alright but Steele sounded like Larry from the Bob Newhart Show and I found it comical.


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

    Things are not always black and white

    Micah Sloane knows almost everything there is to know about Risa Clay, including the vicious betrayal she endured years ago and the distrust she’s harbored ever since. The only way for the Elite Ops agent to uncover an assassin - and banish the ghosts of his own dark past - is to use Risa as bait. But nothing has prepared him for her disarming blend of innocence and sensuality, or for his overwhelming need to protect her.… Risa has spent six years rebuilding her life. And now, to save it, she must pose as Micah’s lover and draw a killer into the open.

    Would you try another book from Lora Leigh and/or Clarissa Knightly?

    I listen to a lot of Lora Leigh's books. Will listen to both again.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Okay. Wildcard ending was better.


    Did Clarissa Knightly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    You could tell the characters apart but Risa in ecstasy was annoying, whiny after a while just wanted her to be done.Other characters were good.


    Did Maverick inspire you to do anything?

    No

    From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    Toni says: "Wonderful! More like this!"
    "Sexy read...enjoyed the characters"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the pace of this book, the characters, and the erotica. I enjoyed the fact that the book had a plot and also the funny moments I actually laughed out loud. This was my first book of hers and I immediately purchased and listened to all the others in this series. I am now a fan.
