    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Any additional comments?

    I was excited for a hot sexy kinky story, but sadly this was not that book. While the sex is hot, the story is not. The main character, in my opinion, is flighty, whiny and a flip-flopping emotional wreck. Given that it is written in the first person, that left me feel confused and not happy with the choices she was making in the novel. However, the story is cohesive (mostly) and it never hurts to have a story where your characters are wealthy and beautiful.

    If you are looking for a pro-kink story, keep looking (and let me know if you find it!). But for the average female reader, perhaps this story is a bit on the naughty side. It's definitely mindless summer reading, and that is often delicious in its own right. The story doesn't resolve itself, demanding you read the next book, which is not yet on audible.

    The last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along, you know, for research?

    Story

    Charming, fun and filled with catty women! The series develops nicely in this second book. I loved Sophie and Anatoly's banter as well as the slow pace of their relationship. The book doesn't make love Sophie's number one motivation in life, which is so refreshing in a chick lit style book.

    A great fun read, if you liked the first, you'll be glad you chose to follow it up.

    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. The protagonist is flawed, funny, smart and very 'real'. The book is written in the first person, allowing you to see how she really ticks. Her sidekicks are memorable, fun in their own right and really keep the dialogue moving forward.

    It's a private eye crime-solving comedy that will entertain you and make you want more. There's a nice dearth of sex and romance, leaving room to develop the story and the characters in it. And it has great politics without being political. Yay for Sophie Katz!

    According to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives. Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day.

    Story

    At only one hour in length, I'd hoped for a book that really perked me up, motivated me for mornings. But the dry performance left me wanting. And that dry tone is all the more salient when the book is meant to motivate its listener,

    The lesson in the book is a good one, and perhaps if you are interested, you should consider the book before the audiobook. Though. it isn't as 'tip' heavy as you might want.

    Overall, a mediocre listen with a good message.
