    Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager back home in Italy. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: Her overprotective family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her. Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off-limits, for the sake of his job and his friendship with Michael.

    What made the experience of listening to The Marriage Mistake the most enjoyable?

    Maximus Grey.


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

    The mother showing up unexpectedly added a nice twist! I was wondering how they'd work in the "mistake" part of the marriage!


    Any additional comments?

    Easy and fast listen, I was disappointing that it was over so quickly!

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The men's voices were so old it sounded like Grace was falling in love with an 80 year old. It was really distracting. Same with the previous book...

    For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson Hole, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….

    When HurricaneKatrina struck New Orleans, Abdulrahman Zeitoun - a prosperous Syrian-American and father of four - chose to stay through the storm to protect his house and contracting business. In the eerie days after the storm, he traveled the flooded streets in a secondhand canoe, passing on supplies and rescuing those he could. A week later, on September 6, 2005, Zeitoun abruptly disappeared.

    What did you like best about Zeitoun? What did you like least?

    I loved the story. I had only been in the US a year when Katrina hit and still in high school. The extent of the damage as well as the breakdown of the society was incomprehensible at the time. This book gave me more insight in the time it took to listen to the book than all of the news reports combined. I really enjoyed the book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator could have pronounced the "s" in all of the plurals. I'm not one to be nit picky about narration but it was seriously annoying. Also, the Arabic terms could have been pronounced a lot better. I understand that he might have been trying to Americanize the words to make sure all readers understood what he was saying, but it took away from the book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, and from my understanding, there will be a movie.

    To satisfy his late father’s wishes, hot and single billionaire Michael Conte must find a bride - someone who will fit into his traditional family back home in Italy - and fast, so his engaged sister will be allowed to wed. With no intention of being tied down, Michael "proposes" to fiery, free-spirited photographer Maggie Ryan: If she will play the part of his fiancée during her trip to Milan for a photo shoot, he will keep away from her married best friend, Alexa, and stop making Maggie nuts with their too-close-for-comfort flirtations. But once in Italy, sexual tension sparks the hottest no-strings-attached arrangement on any continent....

    A spiteful article about the former pitcher and current playboy, Reid Buchanan, questions his talent in the bedroom. And the newspaper's just the first bad news. Reid's grandmother Gloria's broken hip means she needs constant care, but Reid hired Nurses 1 and 2 for their bedside manner with him. So for Number 3 he chooses Lori Johnson, the first candidate who seems immune to his brand of charm.

    I accidentally listened to this series out of order but quite honestly, it didn't make that much of a difference. The books were creative and sweet. Definitely wouldn't mind a sequel to all four of them!

    Todd Aston III's reputation as a playboy preceded him; he wore power as seamlessly as he wore his custom-cut suits. But Marina Nelson had promised her sister-who was marrying Todd's cousin-that she'd help him plan the perfect wedding. And somehow, between tasting cakes and modeling wedding dresses, Marina discovered that she wanted Todd-and that Todd wanted her. She was powerless to prevent the inevitable.

    What three words best describe Gabra Zackman’s voice?

    I didn't like the narrator. It was hard to differentiate between the characters and her voice is a little deep for a book that's primarily from a female POV.


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

    I don't know what the tag line would be, but I would LOVE for the three books to be turned into a Lifetime Series of movies!! iTunes... what do you think? haha
