For anyone who likes historical romance, you have to give Georgette Heyer a try. Her books are so well written and so accurate to the period, they are easy to get caught up in and hard to put down.
Of Heyer's books, Frederica and the Grand Sophy are my favorites. The story is fast paced. The characters are well developed and likable. Frederica is a wonderfully strong heroine. The duologue between Alverstoke and Frederica is excellent and funny. This book is a wonderful mix of romance and comedy.
One other note to the reader/listener, most know, but some do not: these books were written in the 1920s and 1930s so you are not going to get the overt sexual references that you read in most romance books, if that is what you are looking for in a romance novel, Heyer may not be for you, but if you like historical romance, you should try one of her books
Although it was not as good as book 2 (which was by far my favorite), it was still excellent. Worth the wait. I agree with the other reviewers, it could have been longer, but I will listen to it again and isn't that the true test of a good book.If fact I would probably be going back to restart the series if there were not so many other good books released today too!
I thought this one would have been better if it were shorter. I just got board with how slow it moved and never really related or like the main characters. I tried to speed up the narration and even that did not help, everyone else seems to love it, I wish I had, but it just was not for me.
I really love this series. I cannot wait for the next one. The first book is one of my all time favorites and I have listened to it multiple times. This book continues the story from the first two and is just a as addicting. It is not as good as book one, but I think it is stonger than book two. I hope it is not another year before we get the next installment.
What a great start to a new series. I cannot wait for the next one. I love this new magic world and the new cast of characters. Another solid performance, if you like the other Ilona Andrews books, you will enjoy this one, it is very much in the same vain, female unaware of her own strength and on the financial brink, catches the interest of a very powerful man while trying to solve a case.
Book 4 of the Colorado Mountain Series and I they just keep getting better. This one was is sweet and funny, it will make you laugh and cry. Chace is one of my favorite characters and it was great to see him heal and get his happily ever after. Although this is #4 in the series, all the books in the series can stand alone. This is a long listen, but it will go by quick. Worth the credit.
One part science fiction, one part crime drama with a dash of political thriller. Smartly written, the story moves quickly and holds your attention. The story is based in a futuristic world and Scalzi does a good job integrating and explaining the technology while not letting the story get bogged down. Crime/police stories are not typically my thing, but I really enjoyed this one. If you like his other books, this one will not disappoint. I also loved the Will Wheaton version.
I think this series keeps getting better and better. I love all of Kristen Ashley's other audiobooks, but I think this is my favorite series so far. Great character development and writing, good back stories, heartwarming romance with some thrills. It has a bit of everything. This is book 3 in this series, and although you don't need to begin with book one, I'd start with The Gamble and then listen to Sweet Dreams since some characters and places from those books referenced. Over all a great listen.
This is a really fun listen. On the surface this is a nerd-gets-hot-guy story, but Janie is not a typical nerd and the author does a good job making her character's insecurities believable and not annoying. Janie is a 26 year old, smart girl that is insecure and querky due to her background. She starts out having a bad day but meets Quinn, the good looking building security guard, that helps her land a new job. They develop a relationship despite Janie's insecurities, ex boyfriend issues and family dramas.
There were parts of the story that were predictable (Janie not realizing Quinn's position in the company), but there is enough other stuff going on with the characters to keep me engaged and listening. I also enjoyed the humor of this story, I liked the eccentric trivia and Janie's internal dialogues.
Over all this is a very solid contemporay romance/ chic-lit story and a highly enjoyable listen. I highly recommend this one - especially at $6 with the Whispersync.
I think I liked book 2 better then book one. If you like paranormal romance, then you will like this series about the alien warriors finding their true loves here on earth while searching for others of their race here to commit horrible crimes. For a book with so much death, it was still a light read with most of the heavy stuff glossed over or resolved in a few pages. It has some mystery to it and left some questions to be answered in the next book. This one won't be for everyone, but really liked it.
This one is a great addition to the Christina Lauren books, funny and sexy and oh so very hot. I did not like it as well as her previous books, but I absolutely LOVED them, so you have to take that with a grain of salt. This book is still very enjoyable and very good, I was just not blown away, like I have been in the past. The story and some characters did not seem as developed as in past books and the ending was good, but did not provide all the resolution I wanted to see, not sure if more is coming in another book. Overall a highly enjoyable listen.
