    Ben Walsh is well on his way to becoming one of Manhattan's top litigators, with a gorgeous boyfriend and friends on the A-list. His life is perfect until he gets a phone call that brings it all crashing down: a car accident takes his parents, and now he must return to Austin to raise three teenage brothers he barely knows.

    Where does The Nothingness of Ben rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks in my top 5. I have a hard time putting a particular number on a book because I love them all...but this one drove me to tears


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Nothingness of Ben?

    I loved when Ben finally broke down and came to terms with the fact that his parents were really gone. I didn't realize how important it was for me to see him acknowledge his parents death until he did, and my heart broke for him.


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

    I loved his voices, his southern drawl. It was sexy when it needed to be, strong when it needed to be and kept me enthralled as much as the story did.


    If you could rename The Nothingness of Ben, what would you call it?

    I couldn't rename this book. The title is so apt. We see a man at the height of his life brought to his knees, laid bare and empty. It forced me to see myself stripped to that nothingness and left me wondering how and if I could make it to the other side.

    What made the experience of listening to Love the Sinner the most enjoyable?

    This was a great start to the series...after listening to chapter 1, I went ahead and got the other 4 with no hesitation. The love affair was amazing...The story outside of the main couple was addictive. Fantastic secondary characters, Pablo, Syren, Mateo, Kane...All round Badass novel


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that Angel...rough and tough gangster never thought twice about being the man Gabe deserved. He gave everything he had for them. You would expect that Gabe would be the one falling to his knees but Angel turned out to be the sensitive bastard that made me bawl


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

    He spiced up the book with that Spanish accent ...Damn. The voice for angel...was fantastic.
    What he does with the word "cop" should be illegal.


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

    An unbreakable love.

    Gun runner Pablo Castillo has cemented his reputation in the gun trade as callous and cold-hearted. Personal feelings no longer matter, not with everyone out to make him a sacrifice on their way to the top. He remains untouchable, until a meeting with a rival gang leader and a new deal brings him face-to-face with temptation. Dev is the right hand to a sadistic bastard out for blood and glory. He hides his true feelings of distaste for his boss, not the least of his many secrets.

    What did you love best about Sinner, Savior?

    One of the things I loved about this book was Pablo''s growth. From being in love with a ghost, scheduling love with an anonymous Levi, Off the charts hatred for his father (well deserved) ..to being the freaking hurricane that went to his man...his love when shit hit the fan. That man is a force of nature!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The thing I love best about the story was Shane's determination to make Pablo his. He knew from jump that they were destined to be and he refused to let Pablo walk away from it. I cheered for him, cried with him wanted to punch Pablo sometimes ..It all started with a fight and he continued that fight for his man the whole time...it was beautiful .


    Which character – as performed by Renard Pasquale – was your favorite?

    The narrator did a fantastic job with all the characters but Pablo made me swoon every time.


    If you could take any character from Sinner, Savior out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The character i would take out surprisingly is Shane....surprising cause I''m a little in love with Pablo. But He is definitely one of the strongest characters Ive seen in a while. Nothing came easy for him, just when things started looking up Pablo turned on him, then the boss, then the Ex. But damn if that boy doesn't know how to fight for what he wants.


    Any additional comments?

    Yea...I admit JP is my favorite book boyfriend.

    Nobody knows the real Chase. Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover's goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he'd rather die than open it, and the lies he's used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster.

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

    This would've been a good experience if the main character just killed himself.


    Has Chase in Shadow turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This book would"ve turned me off from the genre if it was the first one I read. Thank God it wasn't


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Th narrator was fine. The book was awful.


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

    Redeeming qualities? My ears are bleeding. I've never had such a visceral reaction to a book before. The whole book is centered around a lying lying douchebag who still gets his happily ever after.


    Any additional comments?

    Honestly, The main character just made me want to punch him out. Every word out of this character''s mouth made me want to puke. possibly the worst representative of a human being ..yeah .. it was crap

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    Would you listen to Entwined With You again? Why?

    I listened to this book twice, back to back on my firsts go....since then I have listened again and have started saying the lines with them so yes...I loved it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Entwined With You?

    Most memorable moment...that's easy...They ran off and got married. Of course I'm screaming "'Tell Someone...Tell Carey" but that's just me..


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

    I cant give the narrator any higher praise, she was absolutely amazing.


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

    I have been hooked on this series since book one and I still got emotional. I still laughed , I cried...I have my fingers crossed waiting for thee motion picture.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

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

    I have recommended this book, the entire series as a matter of fact. Book one was so good I couldnt imagine being disappointed by book 2, and I was not.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honestly, my favorite thing about the series is the character of Gideon Cross. He is the embodiment of the perfect guy which is silly yes, but its great to just imagine.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene...I dont really have one. Sadly, I loved every minute of it


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

    What moved me most about this book is we see how hard these 2 characters firght to stay together while their past kept pulling them apart...Gideon fights so hard to keep his girl no matter the consequences...it sweet.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bared to You to be better than the print version?

    I dont have the print version of the books to make a proper comparison but I will say the audio version is fantastic.


    What other book might you compare Bared to You to and why?

    It reminded me of Fifty Shades of course, But I think this was much better written. The characters are great and the story line is quite compelling. I was hooked from beginning to end. .


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

    The narrator was so good. I loved her voices for both leads, punchlines were on point. Every little laugh or sigh made the scenes that much more real.


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

    I was very much moved by Gideon Cross the male lead. We get to understand most of what happened to the lead female but Gideon remained so guarded that whenever we got a glimpse into his past it was that much more heart breaking. I got emotional, I cried. It was unexpected but so very welcomed.

    From the moment he lays eyes on the Sinners' new soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she's too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible - exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her.

    I hated that Phury''s journey was so raw and depressing but he came out on the other side a better man and that is the mark of a true hero. I loved it
