    Cage York has to choose between a love of the game and a love of the girl in this sultry Sea Breeze novel from New York Times best-selling author Abbi Glines. After waiting for his big break, bad boy Cage York is finally called up to prove his worth in the college baseball arena. But when Cage's girlfriend, Eva, mourns the sudden loss of her father, it's not Cage's comforting arms she runs to, but those of her former fiancé's twin brother, Jeremy. Torn between his baseball dream and the girl of his dreams, Cage must prove he's worthy of Eva's love, or risk losing her to Jeremy forever.

    Story

    This book was just okay. If she wanted to continue this series, I think it would of been better if she wrote Jeremy`s story instead of a second book about cage. Read more like an erotica then a romance. More sex then story so it was just a waste and pointless. Shauna did great as always male reader had a great voice but just didn't do it for this book. Too bad I paid full price.

    Claire is a 20-something, single mom who grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life. When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time. With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim-to-none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

    Story

    Laugh out loud till you can no longer breath and have tears running down your face funny! The most hilarious book I have ever read!

    Warnings: This book contains a lot of profanity, rude remarks, sexual undertones, sex toys, chocolate, violence, drinking, and drugs.
    This book is not for those who lack a sense of humor or those who are uptight!

    Now that is out of the way. Let me tell you to GRAB this book now if you are the types of person who can handle all the warnings. You will not regret this book at all. You will laugh like you have never laughed before. I imagine that everyone can relate to this book in one of the many LOL moments, rather it be things you may have thought or things you may have wanted to say to someone but was too nice to say them.

    The characters are loveable but are no holds bars with their way of speech. I think these characters could even make sailors blush. (Cruse like a sailor) remember those words because sailors aint got nothing on this group!

    This book starts of with Claire who is a virgin, one night at a college party she meets a guy and decides its time to pop her cherry. From there the laughs begin. I do not want to go into to much of the story so I will stop there. The story is written to where you know what they are thinking inside of their heads ( you know those thoughts you say to yourself but never dare say out loud since its no PC) yeah!!! Then you have those random thoughts that you think so loud that they pop out your mouth and every one's jaws hit the floor! LMAO!!!!

    This book is all kinds of crazy ass fun! A laugh a minute that one can not ever regret. If you love comedy and/or America's funniest videos, I highly suggest you pick up this book.

    Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.

    Story

    I got this book because of the good reviews, one in particular, she has never failed me. However I do not see why people have loved this book so much. It was funny and romantic but it got to the point I was screaming ENUFF ALREADY! For me this book was just a little too long for the main story line. By the end of the book if I heard one more time about him being a 10.5 and her being a 2.5 I would have screamed. I just wanted to knock some sense into Mara. The ending however when the big oh no happened felt rushed. If the author would of token out some of the .5 stuff and add more to that OH NO scene then this book might of been a 4. But since I had to listen to all that point this and that for so long I can not give this book more then 3 stars. This book could of been half as long and been better. I am just happy I did not pay full price for it.

    Done with being the world's biggest pushover, Haley decides that things are going to change starting with the aggravating neighbor who has too much charm and not enough restraint. What she didn't expect was to be sucked into his world, but Haley has a game plan and she won't let herself forget just what the bad boy next door is capable of. The last thing Jason expected was for his little shy neighbor to go Rambo on him over some ruined flowers.

    There’s nothing worse than living next door to your childhood nemesis, except maybe being forced to share your dream project with him, being blackmailed into going along with something that was just wrong on so many levels, and having your hot cocoa stolen by the person that drove you to drink it in the first place.As long as she has plenty of hot cocoa, a pair of pliers on hand and is able to resist Connor O’Neil’s bad boy charm then Rory James should be able to make it through this project with her sanity intact.

    I loved every minute of this book. Had me laughing and smiling my day away. There was one scene in the book that reminded me so much of me and my brother. It gave me plenty of ideas on how to get him back for some of his practical jokes. The romance and sex scenes was wonderful! If your looking for something that will put you in a good mood then this is the book for you. For that matter this whole series is!

    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.

    You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it's windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He's the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He's pretty much irresistible.

    Would you consider the audio edition of That Boy to be better than the print version?

    I think that the audio was great. It did take me awhile since she spoke so fast to catch up with the time line in this book. I think the print version would of been better for that fact alone. Other then that I enjoyed the audio version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    JJ of course! She reminds me so much of me when I was younger. Her thoughts and feelings.


    Any additional comments?

    I still have the unanswered question of who got to be her first time. They made such a big deal out of it in the book I kept waiting to hear about it. I felt a little ripped off that this did not play out. That's why I can't give it 5 stars. It was a fun, laugh out loud, eye rolling good read.

    When Harlow Manning’s rocker father goes on tour, he sends her to Rosemary Beach, Florida, to live with her half-sister, Nan. The problem: Nan despises her. Harlow has to keep her head down if she wants to get through the next nine months, which seems easy enough. Until gorgeous Grant Carter walks out of Nan’s room in nothing but his boxer briefs.

    Story
    What would have made Take a Chance better?

    A different male narrator. Better yet NO male narrator. Each time I listen to one of Abbi's books the male narrator takes away from the experience, out of them all I rather have Kirby at least he did not sound like a bad porno movie gone way bad!


    What was most disappointing about Abbi Glines’s story?

    Beside the fact that the male narrator sounded like a bad porn movie gone bad....well how about everytime you turn around they are having sex. Oh she's mad, let's get naked. Oh you hate this, that hurt you, let me **** it better. I have to ask myself is Abbi switching over to straight erotic now? Not the good kind either, the kind that has very little story and a ton of just okay sex?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Shayna Thibodeaux and Jack DuPont ?

    Just take away the male narrators and it would be 100% better. I felt slimy listening to Jack's narration. That was a first for me and I have listened to some pretty messed up stuff and have never felt the need to bath for hours after words.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Take a Chance?

    Half of the sex scenes. It was used way too much in this book. Did not leave time for an actual story line. Now I see why this couple will have 2 books instead of 1.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read everything Abbi has written to this day. This is the first time I have had a truly bad taste left in my mouth after reading one of her novels. I am sure the bad taste had a lot to do with the narrator but I do feel she over used sex scenes in this book to an eye rolling level. I started skipping them and that's not like me at all!

    With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

    I do not like the fact that there is a major loose end in this book that was not resolved. Can't say what it is as I do not want to spoil the book. Other then that the book was an ok read. I am not seeing Robyn Carr's passion in this series as I did with her Virgin River series. I am on the fence with continuing on with this series. It doesn't feel like new material. Just old material written with new names and with out that little something extra that makes you want to know what happens.

    Small-town nurse Nina Wentworth has made a career out of being a caretaker. More "Mom" than their mother ever was, she sacrificed medical school - and her first love - so her sister could break free. Which is why she isn't exactly thrilled to see Averil back on Blackberry Island, especially when Nina's life has suddenly become…complicated. Nina unexpectedly finds herself juggling two men - her high school sweetheart and a younger maverick pilot who also wants to claim her heart. But as fun as all this romance is, Nina has real life to deal with.

    I just don't know. Something was missing from this book. I can normally relate to or connect with the characters in Susan's books but not this one. This book started off interesting but quickly lost all interest in it. If this was a show on tv or a movie I would of turned it off. But since I bought it, I finished it. Something was lacking, just not what I have come to expect from a Susan Mallery book. Nothing seemed to really get fix, or come to a conclusion. Everyone in the book just said oh Hey this is my problem, problem solved. Nothing was really worked threw or talked about like you would expect from a book. I would of thought this was an abridge version.

    This book just did not do it for me. From the narration of Tara Sands to some of the story. The story starts off good and George Newbern did a great job. About half way threw I was just ready for it to be over already. The first part was good and had potential, then you get to the middle and to me, it just seems like the writer got tired of writing the book. Then the mistakes. Once Shane was talking and instead of saying I reached over, he says He reached over like it was a different person. I find that very annoying!
