Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.

    The loss of control. The fear of desire. Allie always thought that mysteriously sexy rancher Caleb Johnson wanted her as much as she wanted him. But since he never acted on it, she was ready to admit defeat. Until the night she was attacked by a vicious wolf, only to be rescued by another. In the triumphant, bloodied male, there was something Allie recognized---the baritone growl, the mesmerizing eyes, the inexplicable animal attraction. Her savior was Caleb.

    Ok, first I never bash a book. Check out my reviews and you will see. This book was really really terrible. Its the first book I couldn't finish. Even my husband who is an avid reader and writer came in a time or two and asked me what I was listening to, followed with an astonished "Why". I admit, I waited it out hoping it would get better. I finally turned it off unhappy and unsatisfied. I never understood where the author was taking me. The book seemed focused on a strange love and transformation of the main character, and the sexual relations of the two after that. I love a good love story and am open minded when it comes to sex, this was not good at all. The plot was underdeveloped at best, and the characters lacked depth. I am sorry if this book appeals to you, and would love to hear what people liked about the book. For this was the worst pick of the year. If I could ask for a refund or credit on any book in my library of more then 100 audio books this would be the one I'd pick hands down.

    This book started out rough, Anna attitude is tough to handle at times, but about an hour into it, the book got a lot better. The story took off and I was hooked, it was just a rough start. Honestly though I am not sure how many more books they can continue to write in this series without really ruining the entire storyline.

    Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

    But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

    Ok after listening the the first few books, and becoming accustomed to the first narrator, I thought I wasn't going to make it through the book with this narrator, honestly, couldn't see be able to pronounce the name of the main characters correctly. She totally ruined the book and I only finished because not finishing would have left too many gaps in the storyline and I would not have known what led up to the next book.

    Jolie thinks she’s seen it all, but life continues to spring surprises. The latest shocker? She’s just been crowned Queen of the Underworld. Jolie may possess a rare gift for reanimating the dead, but she doesn’t know the first thing about governing disparate factions of supernatural creatures. She can barely maintain order in her own chaotic personal life, which is heading into a romantic tailspin.

    Some books are meant for print and others meant to be read aloud, this is not to be read aloud. It is not written in such a way that the narrator can bring life to the characters with making them look fake. I enjoy the author so I thought I would try to listen to the book instead of reading it, my mistake, I will only get these books in print going forward.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Its nice to laugh throughout a book, and to see things from a female perspective. This is read by one of my favorite narrators and written by a great author. The plot is not shallow, and if you read the series each book builds on the last. Its funny how everyone begins to come together as a family in this one. You will enjoy it, promise.

    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.

    I loved the narrator, her voice was soothing, this book in general was based in a part of the world that I have never been, therefore my American nature did not allow me to truly appreciate much of the plot, word choice, and descriptions, its a shame, I really wanted to like this book.

In this line of work, you either get lucky or you get dead. And since I destroyed my nemesis, Mab Monroe, a few weeks ago, all of Ashland’s lowlifes are gunning to make a name for themselves by taking out the lethal Spider—me, Gin Blanco."

    Wow, I never thought I would enjoy a book about assassins but I tell you what the Spider is not a typical assassin and she will pull you into her web as well, and you might just agree with her methods. In a world were the weak are crushed by the power struggles of the rich and cruel its not so hard to understand why Gin is the way she is and how hard it is for her to ride the line.
