    Media consultant Veronica St. John has been hired to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who's been targeted by terrorists. But one conversation and Veronica knows there's no way she can turn streetwise New Yorker Joe Catalanotto into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes. Two days isn't a lot of time to get the job done...but it's enough time to fall in love.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the author had written a new, fresh novel that didn't bore me to tears. It was as if there was some preset guidelines that instructed "Insert royal jerk here" and "Place handsome brooding he-man there" or "This is where the emotional unattainable beautiful woman suddenly realizes that perhaps she could fall in love, but of course it will be with the last guy she thought possible." Sort of a mad libs feel.


    Has Prince Joe turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'll admit. I'm not a romance fan. I find them insipid and silly. I THOUGHT this book was going to be more of an action/adventure flavored by an unexpected romance, but boy was I wrong! The supposed action was only there to bring two unlikely characters together who could then have lots of "Oh why doesn't he LISTEN to me!" and "I'll show her how awesome Navy Seals are" moments.


    What three words best describe Ashley Adlon’s performance?

    It was fine.


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

    Irritation.

    A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time, they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things: the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat. Meet the zombies....

    Would you listen to Married with Zombies again? Why?

    I really liked the premise of this book. I love that the main characters are a struggling couple who don't have it all together. It made me laugh when they discover their marriage therapist eating the couple who keeps the weekly appointment before them, and who, incidentally, they can't stand. Despite the zombie mayhem, this book made me often laugh out loud. I can't wait to get the next in the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor coupled with zombie destruction.


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

    She did a great job reading the story and really brings the characters to life.

    From the Battery to the Bronx, Manhattan is crawling with Vampyres. Joe Pitt is one of them, and he's not happy about it. Yeah, he gets to be tough as nails and hard to kill. But spending his nights trying to score a pint of blood to feed the Vyrus that's eating at him isn't his idea of a good time.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is my favorite genre, but this story just wasn't worth listening to. Not only did the story drag and seem to follow pre-fab predictable story lines, but I also did not like the graphic depiction of homosexual sex. Those things, combined with the over-the-top reading, made me finally turn the book off. I just don't even care what happens next.


    What could Charlie Huston have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe if I had read this book myself instead of listening to it, I would have enjoyed it more.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    At this point, no. The reading of this story was the thing that drove me the most crazy. Have you ever watched The Chronicles of Riddick with Vin Diesel? It's like Scott Brick is consciously copying Vin Diesel's manner of speaking in that movie. It's all drawled out and presented in an "I'm too cool for my vampire teeth" kind of way. Oh wait. Except apparently these vampires don't have vampire teeth. They draw blood the old-fashioned way- with a needle.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Uhm..... Nothing that jumps out at me.
