    In Animal Attraction, the second entry in USA Today best-selling author Jill Shalvis's fun, sexy series, veterinarian Dell Connelly suspects his receptionist, Jade Bennett, has a reason for taking refuge in the quiet ranching town of Sunshine, Idaho. Contains mature themes.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. Continues the lives introduced in the first book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have added a little more drama, romance, sex. This installment in the series is a little flat. I like a story that produces a bit of anxiety and suspense/drama.


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

    I like Karen White with the exception of the "hitches" in her sentences/words. Could have flowed better and male voices could have been more distinct. Not a deal breaker for me, however.


    Do you think Animal Magnetism Series # 2, Animal Attraction needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. We were introduced to other characters, Adam being one. Let's hear more about him.

    Arial knows the rules that keep her safe. She's been following them since she was a little girl: Do not tell. Do not show. But in a moment of terror, facing an attacker intent on taking more than just her life, Ari has no choice but to unleash the psychic powers she's been hiding since childhood.

    Maya Banks' older audio books were what drew me to, kept me coming back and keeping my Audible membership. If I were starting now with the newer ones offered by Audible, and didn't know about other great authors, they just wouldn't do it for me.

    MA's older books are like a drug; I keep buying the audios when they are offered in the hopes that I'll get the same "high" as I did the first books/series I listened to of hers and again like a drug, I never get what I got the first time around.

    I liked this book, I like this series, MA will always be an author I will try and whose website I will look at to see what's coming up. That said they just aren't as dynamic, exciting, suspenseful, and sexy/erotic as they once were. I'm disappointed.

    Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

    Story

    I really like Kristen Ashley's books, some more than others, but never really disappointed. This one was not disappointing but a little BLAH for me. I've got to say that my review is in no way a good example of positive or negative reviews; I like drama, suspense, and even a little spooky with my romance. I also like a little more explicit sex. Don't get me wrong both the H and H were good characters, but for as long as KA's books typically are, this one was not worth reliving.

    It really is too bad also that the narrator for this book was not as good as some of the ones in the past; although I think, with the exception of the Colorado Mountain series, the narrators paired with KA's books have been sorely lacking. I did finally get used to Ms. McCarthy's narration as it wasn't terrible, but could really have been much better.

    Dee has always been good at wearing masks. Not letting anyone see the real her. She's content being the happy-go-lucky best friend. The strong willed boss. The independent woman who doesn't need a man. She's terrified that all it will take is one person to make all her carefully constructed walls crumble into fine dust. The second Beck sees Dee, he knows that she will be his. He sees past the gorgeous smiles and heart-stopping laughter.

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

    In this series, Beck is right along side the other two, Axel & Cage. This story was much different than the other two but equally as great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Beck. It was astonishing how he just kept hanging in with Dee; how he knew who she was and could see through her "happy-go-lucky, over-the-top glee" to her pain and had the patience and tenacity to not only wait her out, but gently and sometimes not so gently push her beyond her masks.


    What about Abby Craden and Sean Crisden ’s performance did you like?

    All of it throughout the series.


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

    Yes, but not possible.


    Any additional comments?

    Not sure why we (meaning those of us who got caught up in this series) had to loose one of our own (no spoilers) but I guess if the rest of the books get published in audio, which I'm praying for, we'll find out.

    Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister's shield against the world... until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life.

    If you could sum up Cage in three words, what would they be?

    Crazy, alpha, sexy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire story/series was amazing. Cage & Melissa were perfect and again, who doesn't like suspense, drama, brooding alpha males who fall in love and, oh yeah, let us not forget, in this story, the piercings that brought us to ecstasy along with Melissa.


    Have you listened to any of Abby Craden and Sean Crisden ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, in this series.


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

    Not sure.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is over-the-top sexy. I would recommend this story along with the other two books to anyone interested in this genre. I greatly appreciate the honest and extensive reviews that were given by those who listened to it before me otherwise I might have missed out. Thanks ladies.

    Isabelle West has learned the hard way how hard life can be when fate isn't by your side. For the last two years Isabelle has been slowly clearing the clouds of her past. Happiness is finally on the horizon. She has a thriving business, great friends, and her life back. All she has to do is jump over the last hurdle... her ex-husband. Axel never thought he would look into the eyes of Isabelle West again, and he wasn't sure he wanted to now.

    Would you listen to Axel again? Why?

    Absolutely. I loved the drama, suspense, anguish, romance, sex and who of us that listen to romantic suspense don't love hard-bodied alpha males who are also tender, loving and dominant.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Izzy & Axel finally come to terms with their past with each other.


    What does Abby Craden and Sean Crisden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narration was good. I much prefer when both narrators perform in the story at the same time as if they are truly talking to each other and male narration doesn't try to do female & vice versa.


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

    Yes, but not possible


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I only bought the first book originally I couldn't wait to go on to purchase the next two and listen to this series before anything else.

But when she was presented with the opportunity to study the most amazing thing she'd ever seen, a virus that completely rewrites human DNA, altering someone to become a Vampire, she couldn't refuse. When she realized that the research society were actually the villains, that the Vampires were not evil, or undead, she helps them destroy the lab where she worked.

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

    A completely different narrator. I'm not sure how to get past the narration to listen to the story. I love CL Quinn's The Firsts books, but damn this narration was an abomination.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pyper Down?

    At this point, anyone. It really is a travesty, especially with technology the way it is today not to be able to find a good narrator for this book. Ive listened to Pyper Down before, she's not great, not even close but I've able to get through these books fairly well - this one was awful.


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

    Not sure, couldn't listen to it.


    Any additional comments?

    It is too bad that a good book/series was absolutely ruined by the narration. Also, there are certain listeners whose opinions and reviews I depend on to guide me to good books, and one of the reviewers for this one led me astray….too bad.

    Kate Hart and Dominic Knight's volatile love affair continues in the last book in the All or Nothing trilogy from C.C. Gibbs. Being tied down to just one woman was the last thing Dominic wanted. But from the moment he laid eyes on Kate, he couldn't deny his overwhelming desire for her or his need to possess her.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend that is interested in lots of hot sex, can withstand the ups and downs of life and rolling from one extreme feeling to the next, i.e., frustration, sadness, elations, and sighing moments.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The HEA ending.


    Have you listened to any of Elena Wolfe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in this series & I thought she did a great job; hope to hear more from her.


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

    I had many extreme reactions during this entire series. I did cry, laugh and stomp & swear, & sigh and squirm.


    Any additional comments?

    This series could have used a little more drama or suspense, but overall it was/is a keeper. I enjoyed this author and narrator, both of which I had not previously experienced.

    Brilliant. Wealthy. Powerful. Dominic Knight is one of the hottest tech developers in the world - and the most demanding lover Kate Hart has ever known. Whether in the boardroom or the bedroom, he is always in charge. But there is one thing he cannot control: Kate's fiery heart... As a master in her field, talented Kate surpassed Dominic's wildest expectations. As a woman of uncommon intelligence and beauty, she unlocked something deep within him.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of All He Needs?

    Can't say without giving it away.


    Which character – as performed by Elena Wolfe – was your favorite?

    Katherine & Dominic


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

    I did have extreme reactions; I laughed, cried, got frustrated and wanted to let my inner child stomp her feet & scream obscenities to Dominic and hurl insults to Kate for "giving-in".


    Any additional comments?

    With all of that being said above, I very much enjoyed this series and I'm glad there were a few twists thrown in in this book. The plot of this entire series is a bit weak but not so much so as to stop me from listening and moving on to the next book.

    Would you listen to All He Wants again? Why?

    NO. I enjoyed this book and the entire series, however, despite not wanting to stop listening and wanting to move on to the next book to "see what happens" the storyline was a bit predictable and there have only been a couple of books out of hundreds of audible books that I've listened to more than once. (I don't like watching movies I've previously seen either).


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept me wanting to find out what was next for Katherine & Dominic.


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

    I thought she was a great performer. I never felt like she was just "reading" the story but I found myself immersed in it in a way only a good performer can do. I also liked her voice for Dominic. At first I thought it was not masculine enough, but quickly got used to it.


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

    Not sure


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. In other reviews there were negative comments regarding Kate's immaturity. Come on folks, she's 22 in this series. Weren't we all a bit immature at that age. Also, there was 10 years difference between she and Dominic and the lack of worldliness was emphasized to contrast with Dominic's world class escapades, physical, mental & sexual. Yep, there were a couple of times I wanted to say "come one Kate - grow up", but if she had been "grown-up", sensible, mature, then there would not have been the stark contrast between H/H.

    Powerful and manipulative, Vasilije does as he pleases. A vampire beholden to no one, he takes what he desires, drinking deeply the pleasures this life has to offer. When one of his own is staked, Vasilije must travel to New Orleans to exact his revenge. There he meets Sasa, a beautiful woman who arouses him like no other has for centuries. Vasilije's need for vengeance is equaled only by his passion for her, but what he finds in his revenge is just the beginning....

    Story

    Let me first start off by saying that I really enjoyed the narrator. I think he could have done a better job expressing different emotions; the anger, etc. was a bit on the flat side, but he does have the right kind of deep, sexy voice for this type of performance. Hope he picks up his game in the following stories.

    I thought the story was pretty good. My main complaint was the lack of character development; granted we got to know Vasilije and his background better as the story progressed, however, even that was a bit on the weak side. And, Sasa, well there was nothing, except the history with her mother and that she was an empath. I would have liked to have gotten to know her better and get more of a sense of who she was other than her mother's keeper. Maybe we'll hear more about her in the future.

    Overall, I liked it enough to download the next in the series. Hope we get to know Saint better. Also, I virtually never (with the exception of 3 out of hundreds) give 5's, rarely give 4's, so for me 3's don't mean it was bad.
