    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Would you listen to The Last Boyfriend again? Why?

    I am on my 6th listening of this series. I am so into the characters, I swear I could be them!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ALL the characters are AWESOME!


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

    Macleod Andrews nails the voices for the characters in his narrations. I can picture each one vividly and can imagine them talking the way he tells it.


    If you could take any character from The Last Boyfriend out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Justine, because of her style and wisdom

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story is good but the narration was so bad I quit listening to it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Someone who knows how to do different character voices where they don't all sound alike or sound like they're in dire oain.


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

    It's a good story, but I'll read the book instead of listening to it.

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Entwined With You the most enjoyable?

    The plot thickens with each chapter.


    What other book might you compare Entwined With You to and why?

    Well Christian Grey doesn't know what 50 shades is compared to Gideon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't compare. They are all great!


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

    I laughed and cried and sighed. What an emotional roller coaster. That makes for a GREAT story.


    Any additional comments?

    Forget 50 shades all together. Gideon has 100 deep dark shades that are better!
