    Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he's recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiance;. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother's upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn't like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma's offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home.

    Story was good. The reason I continued to listen. The narrator was fine not great but ok. But the the narration timing felt rushed. Sounded like she was speed reading the story rather than allowing me to lose myself in the story. Narration just didn't do the story justice

    When Caleb Devereaux's younger sister is kidnapped, the scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot. While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Keep Me Safe to be better than the print version?

    I'll listen to and re-read this book for years to come! Although I enjoyed the audio edition the narrator didn't quite have the edge to his voice I would have liked to hear.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Keep Me Safe?

    I couldn't stop listening while Ramie was making her escape from a potential capture. As she was running my heart pounded right along with her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The moment Ramie gave into Caleb and allowed her walls to begin to crumble.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Extraordinary love found in an unconventional way


    Any additional comments?

    What a great beginning for a thrilling series! Maya did it again with a story I couldn't stop listening to

    Sparks fly when a hardboiled reporter meets a handsome senator. But a political scandal - and attempts on her life - could drive them apart. Or maybe adversity could draw them into a bond even more intense than their steamy sexual embraces.

    What did you love best about Extreme Exposure?

    It made me giggle at times, worry at others and smile at the end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Strong willed woman with vulnerability made the reporter my favorite. Love the senator too.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    He spoke almost at a whisper. Thought about returning the book in the beginning but the story drew me in. I continued to listen and by the end I really enjoyed the overall performance.


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

    Yes. I even dreamed about it at night. I was hooked!


    Any additional comments?

    Great start to a series I can't wait to listen to. Looking forward to meeting new characters and watching others develop through the series.

    Over the years, Donovan Kelly has fought relentlessly for justice, women and children always holding a special place in his heart. Working side by side with his brothers, Donovan has witnessed firsthand the toll it’s taken - physically, mentally, and emotionally - on his loved ones, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire. What he never expects is for his next mission to happen right on his home turf - or for it to take a very personal turn.

    M. Davis says: "Big Disappointment..."

    Where does After the Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed this book along with the others from this series. Maya Bank always delivers!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Van is one of my favorites of the Kelly Clan. His gentleness was felt throughout this story as well as his fierce need to protect his family


    What aspect of Adam Paul’s performance would you have changed?

    His "hick-like" accents are horrible. Although this book is his best so far of the series his accent for Sam and Mama Kelly sound like they're from the backwoods yet the other Kelly brothers finally sound "normal" I like how he narrated for Sean's character with a strong voice but he needs to come up with a sound for the personality he's portraying. Joe was bad sounding like a surfer dude. Resnick was not at all like the gravely cigarette ridden voice he should have, rather he sounded younger than Donovan.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good the narration better but I wish they never changed narrators mid series. Adam Paul doesn't have the grit in his voice needed for this series.
