    What made the experience of listening to The Raven Prince the most enjoyable?

    The story was well laid out, the main characters were perfect, the narrator did a great job on all the different characters and made them all stand out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Raven Prince?

    This booked flowed so well, no slow parts, no annoying heroines etc


    What about Moira Quirk’s performance did you like?

    Very talented in being able to make each characters 'voice; their own and very different. I will be looking for other books with her narration


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

    The end was the perfect mixture of anguish and joy when they are brought back together


    Any additional comments?

    I will be keeping this book in mind to listen to again and again in the future.

Now, with her beautiful girls, a community that depends on her, and her photography studio finally taking off, Lee Ann may not have the life she’d imagined, but it’s definitely the one she wants. Until Cody, her bad-boy ex, returns to Sugar Springs…

    What disappointed you about Sugar Springs?

    The story, the characters, the lack of excitement, romance, poor dialogue...I could go on and on.


    What was most disappointing about Kim Law’s story?

    The characters were immature and there really wasn't a story to the..well story.


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

    Natalie Ross did a great job but even she couldn't breath life into this story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sugar Springs?

    I wouldn't necessarily cut them, I probably would add to them and edit edit edit...

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

    I don't think so but I loved her. She did a good job in making each character have their own voice

    Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man — Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

    What would have made Beautifully Damaged better?

    The author should have spent more time building their relationship up. The story didn't have a good indication as to why the girl would fall so hard for this guy in a matter of brief meetings, to the point of almost worship. There wasn't enough depth in the story. Also, the girl in the story was sooooo annoying! Get a backbone! Have some self respect!


    What was most disappointing about L. A. Fiore’s story?

    I literally rolled my eyes about every half hour at how weak and pathetic the girl was in different situations.


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job in every aspect.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beautifully Damaged?

    The scenes were Trace told her to leave, to get out and they were over and Ember would follow him everywhere.


    Any additional comments?

    This story has great potential with the right 'tweeking' here and there. Was very disappointed to see such a good story get ruined the way it was.

    Would you try another book from Sharon Hamilton and/or J. D. Hart?

    Sure


    What was most disappointing about Sharon Hamilton’s story?

    She should have spent more time developing the main characters and their relationship. There was nothing there to convince the listener why they would fall so hard so fast. The girl came off desperate and extremely weak.


    What does J. D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a pretty good job.


    Was Accidental SEAL worth the listening time?

    No, I couldn't wait for it to end. Pretty boring.

Except the one he's in love with. Raina Winters doesn't believe in love, so when she's dumped right before her wedding, she's more upset about losing what she really wants from marriage. A baby.

    No...nothing spectacular about it. It had tons of potential but author disappointed, especially the ending!

    Marco Donati is rich, ruthless - and more often than not - indiscriminate. Interested only in satisfying his sexual needs casually and frequently, he has no intention of changing a thing about his life. Natalie Lambert is alone, broke, and new to the city when a chance encounter leaves her under the power and control of Marco Donati. As the story unfolds, tensions mount and trust is tested between two people who can't manage to stay away from each other.

    What did you like best about Marco's Redemption? What did you like least?

    it was an overall good story, paced well with just enough story line to keep you interested. Its a quick easy listen. What I liked the least was, the ending. It felt rushed. It seemed like it was still in the middle of the storyline when the author jumped it 8 months in the future when he out of the blue proposes then it jumps 7 years in the future. Ending needs to be rounded out a bit.


    Would you recommend Marco's Redemption to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nothing really sticks out


    Do you think Marco's Redemption needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, not at all. The ending of the book would have to be completely re-written.

    Zoe is used to taking care of herself and has long ago accepted that if anything bad was going to happen, it was going to happen to her. So when she loses her job over something most bosses would probably be happy with and her life starts going down hill from there she doesn't expect it to get any better. She certainly didn't expect any help from the loud jerk next door, but then again she has nothing to lose so puts her trust in him and hopes for the best.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both main characters actually. They were well written with just enough flaws to make it a great story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked 99% of the book and it flowed well. The beginning had a rough start in my opinion and was a little over the top with the issues she was having but the book is great after that.


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

    Not really. Just a pleasant story that I will remember to listen to again in the future.

    What was most disappointing about Diana Palmer’s story?

    The lead male character was such an a**hole. Mean, hateful, hurtful and in my opinion un-redeeming. The heroine was weak and a huge pushover. If any man treated my friend like this I would tell her to leave his crazy self and never speak to him again. The heroine had no self respect at all.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Crawford – was your favorite?

    Jeff Crawford did a great job and was probably the only good thing about this book.


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

    Yes! I wanted to strangle both of them! I wanted to laugh with absurdness of this book and cry with frustration and disbelieving.


    Any additional comments?

    This author usually does so much better and before I purchased this book I looked at the reviews and they were all 4+ stars and great reviews. Big disappointment.

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.
