    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.

    What did you love best about The Vincent Boys: Extended and Uncut?

    I loved the flashbacks of Ash, Bo, and Sawyer's childhoods and the development of their relationships.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Bo. I just love a bad boy!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The female narration was too slow and she really sounded as if she was bored. I really enjoyed the male narration, particularly his accent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I certainly could not stop listening and wanted to listen to it all in one sitting. Unfortunately I couldn't.

    Good story!

    At 22 years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college; working a steady job; in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter; and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next. Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.

    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.

    OMG! This was an intense Angsty Rollercoaster of a story. This guy is nuts and she's nuts for putting up with his crap! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Just be warned! This is 50 Shades on steroids without the BDSM! So, if you did not enjoy 50 then this one is not for you.

    What did you love best about Tall, Dark & Lonely?

    I read this story a few years back and really enjoyed it then but I have to say that it was truly a pleasure to listen to the narrated version. The story contained suspenseful, comedic, emotional, and of course romantic moments.


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

    This is the first time I've listened to Stella Bloom's performance and must say I will definitely listen to her again. She did an outstanding job narrating this story! She brought across all the emotions perfectly, in my opinion, which really brought this story to life.

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    The narrator did a wonderful job narrating the story. She definitely conveyed the characters emotions really well. I loved the Scottish accent! This is a great follow up to the previous books in the series. I always enjoy hearing from the characters from previous books. This was really an enjoyable listen.

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

    In this instance, I think the print version would have been easier to follow. It was quite confusing with the constant flashes of present, past, and who knows!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Eliminate a lot of unnecessary plot.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, it was an okay book but I like the previous two books much better. Be aware, the end is a WTF moment.

And he's eager to become a father. But Julianne's graduate program threatens Gabriel's plans, as the pressures of being a student become all-consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation - research that conflicts with his own.

    What did you love best about Gabriel's Redemption?

    I truly loved the emotions that emanated from Professor Emerson & Julianne. Also, how the author did a fantastic job tying up all the loose ends that remained in book 2. I also loved that in the end, Gabriel foresaw what the future held for them. I thought that was an important element for closure.


    What does John Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought the book to life! He has a wonderfully seductive voice that fits the character of Gabriel perfectly. However, I would have preferred a female narrator for Julianne's character.

    What does it take to rise from life's depths, swim against the current, and breathe? Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn't expect - an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own.

    This was a magnificent read! I was taken on an emotional and gripping Rollercoaster ride. I always look forward to reading Ms. Park's books, the way she expresses the characters feelings is outstanding. I literally feel it as I read it. I really enjoyed the interaction amongst the siblings and how they rallied together.

    Maggie Beaumont's luck is about to change. Sure, she's known for her bad romantic choices-her former boyfriend broke up with her by bringing his new girlfriend home for a visit. And then there was the crush she had on a gorgeous young Irishman, who turned out to be Father Tim, the parish's new priest. But romantic salvation has arrived in the form of handsome, if surly, fisherman Malone. It turns out there's a heart of gold underneath his barnacle-clad exterior. Will this catch of the day turn into the dish of a lifetime?

    I absolutely enjoyed this book! The heroine was very funny despite her idiotic actions. Malone somewhat aggravated me but in the end I ended up liking him. There was a good repertoire of secondary characters that were very well developed so it was easy to follow along. Overall, very satisfying and entertaining book.
