    I first discovered Lisa Kleypass when listening to her modern romance novels which are a must read/listen. I normally enjoy more of the modern romance books but tried seduce me at sunrise on one of the sales audible was having, and, well… leave to Lisa Kleypass to hook you right in. I really enjoyed the Hathaway's series.

    In the close-knit community of Chesapeake Shores, Maryland, Susie O’Brien and Mack Franklin’s “not dating” claim befuddles everyone, especially since the two spend every spare minute together. Susie’s thrilled when their friendship finally heats up. Then, just when happily-ever-after seems within reach, Mack loses the job he loves and Susie faces a devastating diagnosis. But O’Briens always unite in a crisis. Even her cousin Jess, Susie’s rival for most of their lives, becomes her staunchest supporter - especially when Mack’s former lover comes to town.

    This book has a decent narrator and of the whole A Chesapeake Shores is by far my favorite. If you don’t read another book in this series (you don’t have to, to understand what’s going on in this book). I like the 2 main characters and it’s a good story. Not a big fan of the whole series but I did enjoy this book.

    No political science degree could ever prepare Elizabeth Miller for her new job as a second assistant at The Agency, whose clients include everyone you've never met, but you know who they're sleeping with. A former congressional intern in Washington, Lizzie made a bid for a life change that landed her a job a world away, where ethics and First Amendment debates take a backseat to pleading the Fifth for Ritalin-snorting boss Scott Wagner.

    I love to listen to my audio books while working or cleaning the house. I listened to this book in a day and my house never looked so clean. It’s a fun book. You will really enjoy it and if you do you have to listen to the 1st assistant. Good narrator and good book.

    In The Second Assistant, readers across the country found a heroine they loved to love in Lizzie Miller, the smart and witty East Coast girl clinging for dear life to the bottom rung of the Hollywood ladder. But no more coffee runs and sorting thumbtacks by color for Lizzie; she's been promoted. As first assistant to Scott Wagner, now president of The Agency and one of Hollywood's premiere movers and shakers, she's making decisions and learning the ins and outs of the business.

    If you have read the 2nd assistance, you will love this book. It’s not often that a sequel on a book is equally as good as the 1st but in this case it really is. I really enjoyed it.

    Confessions of life as a Kardashian sister—stuffed with family stories, advice, beauty tips and the inside scoop on their life growing up into the gorgeous Dash Dolls. The stars of not one but two #1 reality television shows, and frequent cover girls on all the weekly celebrity magazines, Kourtney, Kim & Khloé Kardashian live large and glamorous lives. But not everything is on the screen—how they really live, get along (and feud) as sisters is the subject of the Kardashians’ very first book.

    Story

    The Kardasians are one of my guilty pleasures. I have watched every season. I thought this book would be a fun listen but it really wasn’t. They are all over the place with this book it’s not very organized it’s really unclear what they wanted to get across to the reader. Save your cash/point there is nothing in this book you haven’t already heard or seen on the show or online. Hope the next book they come out with is better written.

    Overjoyed at Maryanne’s engagement, amateur sleuth Sophie Katz can’t wait for the wedding vows and party toasts to begin. But then Dena—best friend, bridesmaid and all-around vixen—is mysteriously shot just after the announcement. Leave this to the authorities? No way. Dena may never walk again, and Sophie vows to marry her fists with the shooter’s face.

    G. House Sr. says: "A Must Read!"

    Overall

    If you like the other Kyra Davis books, than you will LOVE this one! All the witty characters are back for another mystery, I laughed out loud several times. I could not stop listening to it. I have to say the hardest thing is that there is a cliff hanger at the end and I can not wait till the next book comes out!!!

    Holly Garrett was in trouble. The stranger who'd saved her from a storm was not asking for her help. And he was inviting her to live with him. She could cook for him, and bathe him, but nothing had prepared he for the glances he threw her way.

    Nancy says: "Questionable classification"
    "Disappointing!"
    Overall

    Susan Mallory is one of my favorite authors I love her books from the Buchanon family to the Titan sisters. I was hoping this would be a sweet Christmas story but it was annoying, reader was lacking emotion, and I guess the best word would just be disappointing.

    Anna has waited a long time to fall in love and now that she has, she's not going to let her boyfriend Charlie's mother stand in her way. Meredith Granger is frighteningly well-cultured and impossible to impress. So far, Anna hasn't even been allowed to meet her. But when Charlie leaves the country on business for the summer, Anna decides to take matters into her own hands. Reinventing herself from top to toe, Anna embraces a whole new life.

    Jessica Gottlieb says: "Skip it"
    "It is not your traditional romance its better!"
    Overall

    You fall in love with the main character right away, she does things that make you cringe, and laugh out loud. She reminds us of the crazy things a women would do in the name of love. I thought this was a funny book and I LOVED it. In my opinions it is not your traditional romance its better!

    When Gwen Fletcher moves to Misty Harbor, Maine to fulfill her dream of opening her own restaurant, she isn't prepared for the throng of suitors who want to pay homage to the town's only bachelorette. Much to the dismay of the town's gentlemen, Gwen has only two things on her mind - getting her restaurant open before the tourist season begins and getting to know carpenter Daniel Creighton. But the uncooperative Creighton's odd behavior may preclude her from doing either of these.

    LeftyMom says: "Great story"
    "carefree choice"
    Overall

    Not the best book ever but I definitely liked it, it was just what I needed. I simply wanted to listen to a book that was carefree and this was a great pick. Made me smile, I enjoyed the reader, and sure it was fairly predictable but most romance novels are. All in all I liked this book a lot; it was great for my morning walks.
