    Self-professed nerd Maddie Maloney is an expert on jewels. Jewel thieves are another matter entirely! So when a mysterious Englishman warns her that a thief known as The Chameleon is after the rare pink diamond on display in her aunt's shop, she tells herself it's just a joke. Even if she can't get Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome out of her mind.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gentlemen Prefer Nerds to be better than the print version?

    In a way yes. Because at times the story was slow, those are the moments I leave the print versions behind.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the love story evolved.


    What about Jane Sefton’s performance did you like?

    I could really hear Maddie thru the narrator's voice and the accents were fun.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did both, but mostly laughed.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a sweet romantic read. I didn't mind it being predictable at parts, because the originality of other just compensated.

    Logan Sellers' parole officer has issued three commandments: Stay sober, stay employed, and stay out of trouble. At first, Logan thought those three simple rules would be easy to follow. But that was before he accepted a side job assisting his boss' housebound agoraphobic nephew Caleb. Caleb is deceptively normal for a guy who hasn't left his apartment in three years, and his friendly, caring personality tugs on heartstrings Logan didn't know he had.

    Story

    This was one great love story. I wanted to hug Caleb and put it in my pocket to protect him forever. As for Logan, well, maybe the pocket was not exactly where I would put him *wink* Now, seriously, the story may have been a bit slow at times, but I think it suited its purpose. I love how we were served to every emotion whirling around inside the MC's heads. There are a few pleasant surprises along the way, although the outcome was kind of predictable (but I'm okay with that. I really liked my HEAs).

    I like Mr. K.C. Kelly's voice and performance. I agree with some of the other reviews that his voice is more fit to fantasy than this particular book (Brute was absolutely awesome). But that's okay, nobody does a stutter like he does... and that sold me out.

    Overall, I was very pleased with the plot and the MCs. Highly recommended for those who like odd pairings and enjoy a sweet, angsty Sunday reading. (less)

    Rachel Stone is a widow and single mother, broke and alone. Worse, her late husband, a televangelist, stole five million dollars, none of which came to her. Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

    Where does Dream a Little Dream rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top 10, that's for sure.


    What other book might you compare Dream a Little Dream to and why?

    Out of SEP books, and oddly enough, I would think of Elizabeth Lowell's Only His. I guess Cal reminded me so much of Caleb (and not only for the ring of their names). They were both protective and powerful men on the outside with tender, loving and wounded hearts that needed healing.


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    Yes. As always (at least with all I have heard on her) she did wonderfully.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Wow, it's difficult to decide. There were so many scenes that brought tears and laughter that I couldn't pick only one. The last few chapters I'll admit were the most dramatic.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't read it yet, please do. The Chicago series is great and this is one of my favorites. Without giving anything important away I couldn't make it justice, but take my word for it. Great Book!

    It's Dan Calebow's worst nightmare: Phoebe Somerville, a trendy New York knockout, inherits the Chicago Stars, the football team he coaches. And she wants to help him run it. Phoebe's sure he needs her. He's a sexist good-ol'-boy jock with a one-track mind. Surely she can straighten him out.

    I am not much of a sports fan, but this book captivated me from beginning to end. The plot is strong and the character development clear. Loved the kinky parts as well as the family drama.

    Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

    If you could sum up The Lucky One in three words, what would they be?

    romantic, sweet, angsty


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lucky One?

    The moment they see each other for the first time.


    What does John Bedford Lloyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice was steady and flowed perfectly with the tone of the story. You could easily follow the twists and turns by the hints of this wonderful narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!!!! But of course I couldn't. I read it in two days though. :)


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic read. Another great Spark's book.
