    There was something wicked about Beau that drew me to him. What was wrong with me? Why did I want to sin so badly? Ashton is getting tired of being good, of impressing her parents and playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it’s his cousin Beau who catches Ashton’s eye. Beau is the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, and even though he’s dangerous, Ashton is drawn to him.

    Story

    Perhaps too steamy for some teens, but great entertainment for those more mature. The narration by Kirby Heyborne captures the essence of Bo. Shayna Thibodeaux is also very convincing as Ash.

    A successful novel makes the reader want more, and by presenting characters larger than life, Abbi Glines succeeds beautifully. Would love to see more of her work.

    Pagan Moore doesn't cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him. Seventeen year old Pagan Moore has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers she often saw walking through walls were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less whining and self pity. Pagan's personality was as grating as the inferior narration. Most of the Glines books offered by Audible have great narrators. Listening to some of the characters in Existence was little better than trying to enjoy screeching nails on a chalkboard.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ashley Litz’s performances?

    No.

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    19 hours in Anita's head with nothing more enlightening or provocative than the redundancy of her responses - "I thought about that," "I shrugged," "I shook my head," "I said the only thing I could," "I nodded," ad nauseum.

    Throw in hours of gender stereotyping, misogyny, misandry, narcissism, and BDSM with the ever present guns, violence, and gore for fillers, and, wow, it's another LKH bestseller.

    Even at a camp for supernatural teens, Kylie Galen has never been normal. Not only can she see ghosts, but she doesn’t seem to belong to any one species - she exhibits traits from them all. As Kylie struggles to unlock the secrets of her identity, she begins to worry that Lucas will never be able to accept her for what she is, and what she isn’t…a werewolf. With his pack standing in their way, Kylie finds herself turning more and more to Derek, the only person in her life who’s willing to accept the impossible.

    A series with great potential which goes nowhere. From first book to fourth, Kylie is immature and self-absorbed, lying not only to herself but to everyone she knows. Should have just read the first book four times.

    She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real.

    What did you love best about Alice in Zombieland?

    Pops and Nana interrogating Justin and Cole before they allowed them to leave with Alice.


    What other book might you compare Alice in Zombieland to and why?

    Gena Showalter's Belle Jamison duology had the same blend of pathos, horror and humor.


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

    Yes, she was brilliant in Faith Hunter's Rogue Mage Series as well.


    Any additional comments?

    Through clever and humorous dialogue, the author alleviated the sobering effect of an otherwise macabre tale. The result is a novel make you laugh, cry, scream at the characters to "get outta there" and leave you eagerly awaiting the next installment of the White Rabbit Chronicles.

    As a guardian for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosen: women who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club one night radiates a sensual magnetism unlike any he's encountered, and Julian realizes that Asia Callahan is not just Chosen, she is his kindra: his one true mate. For months, Asia has tracked the beautiful and mysterious Julian across the country, convinced that he's behind the disappearance of her sister and a dozen other women.

    Story

    Difficult to finish. Jacquelyn Frank has created a great premise which is spoiled by a cold, selfish female lead whose only redeeming qualities remain physical strength and prowess, even at the conclusion. It is hard for this reader to accept Asia as the heroine in a romantic novel when every action, including the defense of her sister, is motivated by self-interest. And Chloe is the villainess? It's impossible to tell which character I disliked more.

    Sadly, more promising characters, including Julian and Kenya with their strength of character and compassion, were not the focus of this first installment of a new series.

    Hard to rate a novel where one element destroys all the positive aspects - great story, great narrator, great hero and interesting cast of minor characters. Jacquelyn Frank remains one of my favorite authors, but she missed the boat with this anti-heroine.

    Adventurer Nathanial Harrington would never steal another man's discovery. And he'd never be so dishonorable as to tempt an untouched woman into his bed...even one as stunningly beautiful as Gabriella Montini. Yet she intrigues him. What is her secret? Nate would do anything to find out.

    What made the experience of listening to The Virgin's Secret the most enjoyable?

    Humor, originality, and great characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gabriella was an absolute delight.


    What about Xanthe Elbrick???s performance did you like?

    Excellent portrayal of both male and female characters.


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

    Laugh occasionally - smile a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint - The Virgin's Secret is the only book available on Audible featuring the Harringtons. Foreshadowing left questions regarding the discovery of the remaining seals.

    Genetically engineered warrior Sephti would go to any lengths to destroy the fae that made her their killing machine. Finally escaping servitude, she has meticulously planned revenge against her former masters, and time is running out. The last thing she needs is to be taken captive by a man who hates the fae as much as she does - and thinks she's one of them. Sephti learns her captor is Koda, an ancient Native American guardian determined to save his people from annihilation by the fae.

    Story

    Sephti and Koda, as presented in this unique narrative, are two of my favorite characters in urban fantasy. This unique novel requires the listener's full attention to nuances and should not be skimmed. I have listened to it more than once and each time become more fascinated with Ms. Paige's original concept. What a refreshing change from the formulaic works now in mass production!

    More Elisa Paige, please, with Felicity Munroe as the narrator. Narration is almost as important as content in audible presentations and Felicity nailed it with this one.

But Annique Villiers, the elusive spy known as the Fox Cub, has finally met the one man she can't outwit... British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful - and dangerous - Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England.

    From the hundreds of Audible titles I have downloaded, no title has entertained more in this genre. Joanna Bourne and Kirsten Potter are an incredibly magical duo offering excellence and originality in both writing and narration. I have listened to "The Spymaster's Lady" so many times that the characters seem like old friends. Unfortunately, only one of Ms. Bourne's books is offered by Audible even though her reviews and ratings exceed those of the formulaic authors regularly offered in abundance from the same genre.

    More, please!.

    New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter, Shannon K. Butcher, Jessica Andersen, and Deidre Knight present a steamy collection of all-new novellas featuring sexy paranormal hunters. With shadowy creatures, intoxicating magic, vividly imagined worlds, and sizzling passion, this is an anthology no fan of paranormal romance will want to miss.

    Impossible to review or enjoy a book which has two of the presentations truncated. The Butcher and Andersen portions download incomplete. How about a 50% refund?
