    Bound by the demon of Doubt, Sabin unintentionally destroys even the most confident of lovers. So the immortal warrior spends his time on the battlefield instead of the bedroom, victory his only concern...until he meets Gwendolyn the Timid. One taste of the beautiful redhead, and he craves more.

    Gena Showalter is a wonderful author and I recommend anything she writes. The Lords of the Underworld is an exceptional series and the stories of mythological beings is wonderful.

    Two of paranormal romance's best-selling authors combine their extraordinary talents and set your headphones on fire with an after-dark anthology featuring Alpha males so hot, so wild, and so bad, they may just be the best you've ever had...

    What would have made When He Was Bad better?

    Charlotte Kane narrating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have everything written by Shelly Laureston. First in book format and now in audio. Her characters are funny and believable. Cynthia Eden is a good author also.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different narrator.


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

    The authors.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator read this book as if he were reading a shopping list. He kept a steady boring monotone throughout the book. Had it not been for the fact that the Laurenston story was part of a series I would never have continued with the painful narration.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    It is different. I like the voice of Samuel L. Jackson and he is perfect for this. If you don't like cuss words stay away. It did not bother me in the least. I thought it was very funny.

  • Trigger Men: Shadow Team, Spider-Man, the Magnificent Bastards, American Combat Sniper

    Combat veteran and author Hans Halberstadt takes listeners deeper inside the elusive world of snipers than ever before, from recruitment and training to the brutality of the killing fields. Based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews, Halberstadt gets inside the sniper mind and shows how snipers think and interact with each other, how missions are planned and executed, how the weapons work, and even what happens when a bullet finally strikes its target.

    There are only a few hundred snipers from all the services put together in combat at any one time, making this true inside story a rare and important event.

    Story

    I found this book to be very interesting and entertaining, but it can get a bit technical which was fine with me.

    I have read a lot of books about the military and snipers in particular so it was good to see that they all pretty much concur with each other as to what really goes on in the sniper world. It was also good to hear that, most, if not all, of the snipers don't have a problem with their jobs. As strange as it sounds, I do not consider them murderers or killers or whatever else anyone would call them just because they happen to put people down. They are just men doing their job of saving their teammates in a kill or be killed world. As a female, I have no problem with that.

    I liked it and would recommend this book.

    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    Story

    This author has invented a world that I find is marvelous and with characters who are real and entertaining. The humor is subtle and at times not so subtle but always enjoyable. I will read anything that Ms. Carriger should write. The narrator has a wonderful voice and is very good but, and it runs throughout the entire series, there are long pauses between each chapter. Sometimes so long that I think the book has stopped. It disrupts an otherwise enjoyable experience. I will however continue to muddle through because these books are wonderful. I highly recommend them.

    Gail Carriger created a fascinating steampunk vision of Victorian England in her “intoxicatingly witty” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) debut novel Soulless—the first in the best-selling Parasol Protectorate series. Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.
