    Story

    The sex scenes were the only thing that kept this story going. Even though when the two characters made love it was like , come on, people are on their way to kill you and you are making love. Really? There were so many names, cousins, step-brothers, step-this, step -that. I found my self going, now who is this? I know Lora Leigh has a tendency to do this in other stories, (don't know why she has to do this) I thought the story drug out, it was very predictable. I did not like this one. Period.

    If you could sum up The Storyteller in three words, what would they be?

    Great, thought provoking!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Minka, could not imagine going through all that she had.


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

    Everything, I do not read books. The German accents and pronunciations would not have been the same.


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

    A movie you won't forget!


    Any additional comments?

    I actually liked the book better the second time I listened to it.

    I really liked this story, I liked all of the main characters. The 3 stories intertwined perfectly. Was so disappointed by her other book, The Secret Keeper. Scared to try another book by Kate Morton because of it.

    Liked maybe the first 2 hours and the last 2 hours. If that. I was thinking to myself, come on, this is so boring, I did not care for any of the characters, I liked the ending with the twist, but it took too long to get there. OMG

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

    Story

    Very, very boring in the beginning, picks up a little. I guess I am just tired of 2 people finding reasons NOT to be together, when you know they will end up together. Then playing the same games. "I did not want to tell you this, I did not want to ruin your day" God, I hate this. Was glad when I was done with this book.

    I just want a taste of you. Or a touch. My fantasies about you plague my every waking hour. My only comfort is imagining that similar fantasies might obsess you too. When young librarian Gwendolynne Price starts finding increasingly erotic love notes to her in the suggestion box at work, she finds them both shocking and liberating. But who is her mystery admirer and how long will he be content to just admire her from afar...?

    His name is Rafer Callahan. He was a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who fought through life the only way he knew how: with his fists. But Rafer never meant to bring any harm to Cambria Flannigan, the girl—the lover—whose sister he’d been unable to save…. Cami lost her sister in the brutal murders that rocked her hometown so many years ago. Some still believe that Rafe, along with his friends Logan and Crowe, were involved. But how could Rafe—who haunted her girlish dreams, then her adult fantasies—be a killer?

    Story

    Hard to follow all the relatives and why and where and when, (don't see the point in this) I liked the story line even though the story is not resolved. Should have read this one before "Deadly Sins", did not know it was continued in both books. I liked the narrator, she reads a lot of Lora Leigh's books. Overall a good book and will read the next one and hopefully will be the end and find out who the bad guy is.
    Also when reading the description about the book, it states the guys were friends, not cousins. Weird.

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    A childhood accident left Emmaline vulnerable to disturbing fugue states that last minutes but feel like an eternity. The blackouts are unsettling but manageable... until she meets Johnny Dellasandro. The painter gained fame in the '70s for his debauched lifestyle and raunchy art films. His naked body achieved cult status, especially in Emm's mind - she's obsessed with the man, who's grown even sexier with age. Today he shuns the spotlight and Emm... until she falls into a fugue on his doorstep.

    I liked this book, was not sure how this book was going to end. Happy ending and unexpected. Remember some of these characters and coffee shop for her future book, I always love seeing how she intertwines the characters from other stories. It makes me want to go back and reread the past stories to find the old characters. lol
