    For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt as right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash has a well-earned "bad boy" reputation, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is. Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most. Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined....

    What disappointed you about Up to Me?

    The smart & charming Oliver in the book 1 turns into a dumb, insecure and annoying girlfriend.


    Would you ever listen to anything by M. Leighton again?

    Not sure if I even want to finish this series. I really love the first half of the book 1, after that it just went down hill. I had a difficult time finishing the book just because all the actions seem so unreasonable.

    M. Leighton should stay with romance story instead of suspense/thriller type of story.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd and Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    Kate Rudd did a good job as Olivia

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    What disappointed you about The Great Escape?

    The narrator would fit a mature librarian, not try-to-be funky Lucy. I'm trying hard to finish listening... a big disappointment for SEP books.


    Has The Great Escape turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voice is too mature, it's impossible to feel the character


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Didn't feel the chemistry between Lucy and Panda. Lucy was a lot more interesting in the First Lady book. I'm glad this is not my first SEP's book else I might skip the rest.

    Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.

    Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Kate Russell?

    Yes, love KA's books


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

    While I stayed up late to finish other books in this series, I've a very difficult time finishing this book. Mara's insecurity is waaayyyy too annoying. The 2.5 vs. 10.5 comparison was cute the first time, but after the 10th time or, I couldn't handle it anymore.


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

    The narrator is ok


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

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth a credit

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    I love the first two books and couldn't wait for the 3rd, it turns out to be a big disappointment! Not well organized and way too much drama without any conclusion.
