    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I loved the mystery of the book.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I like that it didn't make it easy for me to figure out the mystery. It was a fresh subject.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    .


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I don't think there was anything wrong with the narrator's performance.

    Good book. It had just the right amount of romance with a healthy amount of mystery. I like when I can't figure out who done it. If you like that in a book then this books for you. Happy reading!

    This was ok. I really didn't like how the story started. I had to read all the snippets to found out what was going on at the beginning of the story. It starting getting better, and the end left me on the edge of my seat.

For her little sister's sake, Crystal can't get too close. Until her job and Shane's mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed. Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation.

    What other book might you compare Hard as You Can to and why?

    This book may be similar to Secret Maneuvers by Jessie Lane. They are both about ex military, and they both have romance, action, and suspense.

    Yes, Book one in this series and it is just as good as book two.

Annabelle packs a bag and heads to her mother's with one goal: to stop the wedding! Financier Clay Castleberry is beyond irritated to learn that his father is engaged - again. So he drops everything and heads to his father's with cash in hand to buy off this latest gold-digger.When Clay mistakes Annabelle for his father's betrothed, the two of them don't exactly get off on the right foot! And to their dismay, as their distrust for each other grows, so does their attraction.

    Would you try another book from Stephanie Bond and/or Carla Mercer-Meyer?

    I don't know. I would have to read reviews first.


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

    First of all on the front of the cover it states romantic comedy. There was nothing funny. I expected to at least chuckle, but nothing. So I guess to add more comedy.


    What about Carla Mercer-Meyer’s performance did you like?

    She was very pleasant to listen to.


    Was Stop the Wedding! worth the listening time?

    Yeah it was ok.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good. The only thing I didn't like was this book was listed as a romantic comedy. I think the author forgot the comedy part. That's my opinion anyway. If you like romantic with a little sadness this book is totally for you. Happy reading!
