    Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates has his eye on Avery Mullins, the gorgeous waitress he's just hired. When she rebuffs his advances, Rowdy starts to suspect something in Avery's past is making her distant. He's determined to uncover her secret, while she's intent on ignoring her attraction to him. But when her past comes calling, Avery seeks safety in Rowdy's passionate embrace.

    What did you like best about Getting Rowdy? What did you like least?

    We, meaning Ms. Foster's fans, have been waiting a long time for Rowdy's story and I was very excited to see it finally appear. So-o-o-o disappointed. With all of the other stories there was so much more to keep one on the edge of their seat rather it be suspense, drama, chemistry between characters, or just waiting to see what happens next.

    This was so predictable and yet unpredictable. Unpredictable because I kept waiting for the big drama, the "hold your breath" suspense and it never materialized.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I think that Rowdy and Avery's story was ok but I wouldn't say interesting.


    What three words best describe Jim Frangione’s performance?

    Monotone, inflection-less, drab


    Did Getting Rowdy inspire you to do anything?

    I was hoping that with the introduction of a new character, i.e., Canon, that I would be looking forward to either his or Dash's story, but I'm not sure now.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so excited about this story that I kept looking at Lori Foster's website to see when "Getting Rowdy" would be coming out; I won't be doing that with the next books in this series and it is my hope that another male narrator, one more suited to changing his tones and inflection when appropriate would be chosen.

    Sorry, Ms. Foster, this one just didn't do it for me. Also I would hope that whoever does the pairing of narrator to book would take into consideration the reputation of the author and her work before choosing a narrator that cannot enhance the dramatization of the story.

    As a walking advertisement for the tattoo shop she's set up in a small Wyoming town, India Ellison is well acquainted with preconceived notions. Despite the odd looks, life is good. She's clean and sober, dotes on her sister's kids, and best of all, spends most of her free time with her best buddy, Colt McKay. Reformed bad boy Colt never expected three years of sobriety to lead to three years of abstinence. Curbing his craving for booze and random sexual encounters, however, is nothing compared to the ever-increasing craving for his hot-tempered, hot-bodied best friend, India.

    I really like LJ's books, this one, however, was not the best. I loved Indie and Colt and glad they finally got together but the storyline is really, really weak. Also, it ended so abruptly it almost startled me. The sex was hot, sorta, the arguments between the two tedious, and there could have been much more to the story.

    I believe the best part, at least my favorite, was when Colt's dad found him at his fishing hole & talked to him and the brothers came to see him. This story did make me want to "hear" what happened with Cam, he's got to be next. Hope Audible sees fit to get the audio version.

    To escape her father's debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She'd rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything. The years of constant war haven't been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love - and bind and adorn with his ropes.

Hallie is his reward, the beautiful sprite ensnaring him with a glance. Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth.

    Where does Grabbed by Vicious rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series ranks pretty high up there with the books I've listened to. It has all the things that capture my attention and make me want to continue to listen; intrigue, suspense, drama, bad guys doing bad things and good, big, gorgeous alpha guys coming to the rescue, strong heroines, romance and hot steamy sex.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the whole "alien" thing is different; that the world is imaginative/different and there are different spins put on good vs. evil.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not sure


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

    Yep, but couldn't; had to sleep sometime.


    Any additional comments?

    I have now listened to all of the books offered. Hope Ms. Lopez keeps those big guys coming.

    He's infuriating, nauseatingly addictive and she just can't seem to shake him. He's only been in town a short while and his name is already on everyone's lips. He's the kind of guy moms' warn their daughters about - the kind that leaves a trail of shattered hearts behind him and he has Olivia in his sights. Olivia has never met anyone as confusing as Seth and his hot and cold attitude constantly sends her reeling. She's never wanted anyone's touch so badly in her life, but having recently come out of a long term relationship diving into another is something she'd prefer to avoid.

    Would you try another book from Skyla Madi and/or Em Eldridge?

    Absolutely.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I thought the story was pretty good but very predictable so far.


    What three words best describe Em Eldridge’s voice?

    Hurried, rushed, okay


    Was Consumed worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping for a bit more from this book/author. The storyline was, thus far, very predictable. I am hoping that the final books are better and that if Em Eldridge narrates that she slows down a bit. The changes in voices for the varied characters were pretty good and she did the male voice better than most female narrators. That said, she sounded as if she was late for an appointment or afraid of loosing a bet for how quickly she could narrate this book. In the beginning her rushing/fast narrating made me anxious and I wanted to take a deep breath for her.

    I hope the next books in this series are better, if Audible manages to offer them which is a 50/50 chance (Audible seems to neglect or ignore the fact that there are three books in a trilogy and several in a series) or just doesn't push the publishers to offer the last book in audio. I have become discouraged with Audible's lack of attention to this problem as there are several books that I have purchased that are part of a trilogy on the good faith that Audible will provide all of the books only to find that is not the case.

    The Manor, the very place where their passionate love affair began, fills with guests on what should be the happiest day of Ava and Jesse's lives. She has accepted that she'll never tame the fierceness in Jesse - and she doesn't want to. Their love is profound, their connection powerful, but just when she thinks that she's finally gotten beneath his guarded exterior, more questions arise, leading Ava to believe that Jesse Ward may not be the man she thinks he is.

    Story

    WOW ! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I rarely give 5 stars to anyone…well, intact, only one other author/story. This book did it all; it took me to places I only go in my dreams or imagination; the angst was perfect; the love, romance, sex was perfect, the turmoil, trauma, drama and suspense was perfect. All of these perfect feelings evoked from one so not perfect woman and one "crazy mother f***r" as John would say. That crazy man with all his flaws, secrets, dominance, unreasonableness, was so passionate about any and everything that meant anything to him and trampled my heart in an oh so good way. Then there is Ava, the woman who after all was said and done took Jesse and loved Jesse the way he is. She too was magnificent, tolerant and his angel/saving grace and while not always her Central Jesse Cloud 9, it did eventually always come back to that. The ending was beautiful. I'm so glad it ended the way that it did, it was perfect.

    Please Ms. Malpas give us more. I can't imagine topping this one but your writing and creativity is amazing so I'm sure you will grace us with something at least as exhilarating.

    Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    YES. The book was good. Loved the characters, especially Natalie but the entire storyline really lacked drama.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kristen Proby? Why or why not?

    Yes. I think she gets better with each book.


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

    It took awhile to get used the voices, but she was pretty good. I always wish women did better male voices like only a few can and with JM it is no exception. At least I was able to listen to the narration whereas some potentially good books have been ruined by really bad, or even mediocre, narrators.


    Did Come Away with Me inspire you to do anything?

    Listen to the next book.


    Any additional comments?

    KP is a good writer and seems as though her imagination may be fueled by her fantasies (or reality) because this book gets to the heart of things. You "go girl" keep up the good work.

    Dr. Joyce Yards has never met anyone as sexy or as irresistible as 466. He refuses to discuss anything except getting her naked beneath him. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter, his raw hunger for her is becoming aggressive, and she is falling for him. Joy knows the dire consequences if she gives in to desire. It will break her heart but she must walk away.

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

    YES, but would recommend the friend begin at the beginning with Book 1.


    If you’ve listened to books by Laurann Dohner before, how does this one compare?

    I think I had too high of expectations for Moon, especially as the other books were so very tremendous. This one lacked the drama, romance and sensuality that the other books were so full of… also, this was placed in the erotic section in Coming Soon browser. I think I missed it somewhere.


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

    I think she gets better and better with each book and she has a real knack for keeping the voices consistent so that, for instance, Smiley's voices sounds the same throughout all of the books, as well as Tiger's, Moon's, etc. I always like hearing a good narrator rather than the one that talks in my head when I am reading. Good job VC.


    Was Moon worth the listening time?

    Absolutely, albeit somewhat disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope we don't have to wait too long for Harley, Flame, etc. and I hope they're on the same caliber as the first 8 books. This one felt rushed even though it seemed like forever that we, New Species fans, had to wait to listen to it.

    Would you listen to Motorcycle Man again? Why?

    Absolutely. I'd have to wait awhile cuz' I don't particularly like to watch a movie or listen to a book a second time, but will if given enough time in between. This book felt so real. I could relate to Tyra's responses to Tact's MC club, secretiveness, even though he was trying to protect her, his heavy handedness; etc.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tyra & Tact.


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

    I thought she did an okay job after I got used to her. At first it was difficult and at times throughout the book there was too much "lilt" to her voice. She was not amazing but neither did I feel like she ruined the story and her male voices were really pretty good. There are narrators out there, especially females, who can literally demolish an otherwise good book.


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

    Yes, I laughed out, got angry, felt anxious, cried, gave fist pumps especially to Tyra and experience ooh & aaaahhh moments.


    Any additional comments?

    My opinion is that this is the best of the Dream Man series and Kate Russell did a much better job with this one than the others she narrated,

I liked Harry, got used to and eventually really liked Adam now there is another narrator - didn't like as much.


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

    It hasn't. Kind of a strange question to ask.


    What aspect of Alix Dale’s performance would you have changed?

    Nope.


    Could you see Letting Go being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Well Alix was not terrible to the point I couldn't listen as with some narrators, but not even the same caliber as Mr. Paul.


    Any additional comments?

    Yep; I waited a long time to hear Dash's story and I think it could have been much better if more intrigue and drama. This one was way too bland on all fronts for me; the drama, the romance, the angst, and the sex. Common Ms. Banks I know how well you write, please step it up.

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

    Absolutely. I would recommend all three parts, of course. As I have said in the previous two reviews, I rarely give 5 stars to any story/narrator because I believe there is always room for improvement. However, this 3 Part story deserved the 5 and more in all three categories. The story was short but to the point. The characters were identified, the plot revealed and twists, turns and road-blocks were woven into it; there was intrigue, secrets revealed, angst experienced (much), romance, sensuality and raw sex. All of which were described by the author and performed by the narrator in a manner that drew me in and made me feel like I was either floating above looking down on all the goings on or standing invisible watching every nuance, facial expression, feeling exposed by body language; I felt a part of it all.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Syvastian and Natalie, of course. But Natalie's father a close second.


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Alexis – was your favorite?

    The hero and heroine; that said she did a wonderful job with all main characters.


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

    Yes. Without spoiling anything, hopefully, it was when Natalie told Syvastian that if he shared about himself she would feel closer to him; she asked questions and he answered them.


    Any additional comments?

    Great ending but wanted more.
