    Sadie Turner is not a control freak, just…orderly. When a cheating spouse topples Sadie’s impeccably tidy world, she packs up her kids for a summer vacation at her aunt’s lake house, hoping to relax, reboot, and pick up the pieces away from men. All men. But eccentric Aunt Dody has other plans: she’s determined to see Sadie have a little fun - with Desmond, the sexy new neighbor. Tall, tanned, muscular - and even great with her kids - Desmond is Sadie’s worst nightmare. He must have a flaw - he’s a man, after all - so Sadie vows to keep her distance. But as summer blazes on, their attraction ignites....

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Something about the narrator's voice is really awful! Save your money. It's to bad because this book has gotten great reviews on amazon. Wish I could get my money back!

    One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

    Story

    This is a really fun book! It's refreshing that there is hardly any drama. The main characters seem to really like each other. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a steamy, romantic, carefree read. And recommend that anyone who has a problem with strong language and explicit sex scenes skip it.

    Set over the course of one school year, in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits - smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love - and just how hard it pulled you under.

    Story

    This book has terrible language! So if that is something that bothers you, you should skip this one. It starts out with Park seeing a girl with red hair and wondering if it's Eleanor. After finishing the book I'm glad the author put that part in because it hints that it might not end the way I wanted it to. I like how we get to see things from both Eleanor & Park's point of view. Both narraters did a great job. Park is such an amazing character! These two end up falling hard for eachother, but the love story that really got to me was the love between Park's mom and dad and in turn their love for Park. I feel like they really tried to accept Park's choices even if they didn't really understand them. I loved this book! And while it doesn't end exactly the way I wanted, I found the ending hopeful.

    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.

    I loved this book! I mean really, totally, LOVED this book! That Boy is the story of Jayden and her two best friends Phillip and Danny. It's written from Jayden's perspective in a journal type style. It's a story of growing up, friendship, heartache, and of course love. I laughed, cried, and laughed some more. I will be listening to this book many more times, just for the sheer joy it made me feel!

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    I liked this book, but it was about 5 hours to long. And the main character (Kiera) was so indecisive, I wanted to strangle her! Plus there was way to much blushing and winking.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."

    I downloaded Divergent after a friend said it was as good as The Hunger Games (which I loved). I have to say, I like it better! Get it, you'll have a hard time turning it off.

    Set in the vibrant 14th century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the classic romance Katherine features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets - Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II - who ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king's son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine.

    This is my favorite book of all-time! I will listen again and again. If you like historical fiction, download this right now! You won't regret it.

    Five years have passed since the orphan girl Anne Shirley came to live in the childless home of Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert. She has returned to Avonlea to teach in the same village school where she herself was taught. Her earlier friends, Diana Barry, Jane Andrews, Priscilla Gray, and Gilbert Blyth, have also become teachers at neighboring village schools.

    I could only listen for the first 30 minutes, that's how bad the narrator was.
