    Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he's recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiance;. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother's upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn't like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma's offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home.

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

    I would definitely recommend. It was fun, fast, and had a fantastic narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Yours to Keep?

    The whole story was simple, fun, and totally endearing and kept me listening even when I should have been doing something else.


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

    She is just a great reader and actor. She's great with intonations and just taking her time. Pausing to get a point across and so on. Probably one of, if not THE best narrator I've heard for romances.


    Any additional comments?

    I've found a new narrator that I love and an author who I'll continue to read as much as I can! Loved everything about it!

    Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock - with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him. But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams - and his life - for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all....

    Katheryne says: "Country boy meets big city girl - worlds collide"
    "Easy for me to relate to and real!"

    What made the experience of listening to Dare You To the most enjoyable?

    I liked the rawness of Beth's character. She's a character more real to life than most characters tend to be, but then again, McGarry's last book was the same way. Well done!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Beth, because she's so innocent event though she thinks she's a badass and loser, and she's ignorant to what life's possibilities are which I believe a lot of youth in her situation would view life too. She's guarded with good cause, but she's also smart and witty and compassionate and it makes for a very compelling/complex character. This is a gritty story, not sugar coated at all, it's real to life and I like that. Even Ryan's life is far from perfect beneath his all-star, boy-next-door exterior.


    Have you listened to any of Brittany Pressley and Christopher Gebauer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I never have before. I thought Brittany was a perfect fit for Beth, but Christopher was only okay. It's nothing against his narrating because he's great, but I can't picture the character the way he's described when I'm listening to Christopher. He sounds too nice, maybe even too young. I'm not sure.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author and I'll definitely be listening to the next book.

    In Vicky Dreiling’s enchanting Regency romance debut, Tristan - the rakish duke of Shelbourne - wants to marry and sire an heir. To help him choose among the dizzying array of wealthy but witless candidates, he secures the services of prim and proper matchmaker Miss Tessa Mansfield. But as Tessa seeks the perfect mate, the duke finds himself distracted by Tessa’s considerable charms.

    Would you listen to How to Marry a Duke again? Why?

    Yes! I plan to listen to it again some day. It's a fun, entertaining story that I found myself getting very addicted to. I love stories with standards so different than our own and witnessing how characters solve the problems society puts in front of them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Dutchess was very entertaining and fun and I liked the Duke ( her son )

    "You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own.

    If you could sum up Shatter Me in three words, what would they be?

    I love this story, but It wouldn't have been as engaging as it was without Kate's great narrating. She did a wonderful job narrating Matched also. I get sucked in with all her emotion and realistic voices. I recommend this to women of any age, they'll love it!


    What about Kate Simses’s performance did you like?

    Like I said, I loved Kate's performance. Audiobooks generally annoy me because the voices aren't realistic for the characters or they don't change their voices or use much emotion and she is AMAZING at it. LOVE IT!
