    It started with a hidden desire. Millionaire CEO Nathaniel West has always played by his own strict set of rules, ones he expects everyone to follow - especially the women he's dominated in his bedroom. But his newest lover is breaking down all his boundaries and rewriting his rule book.

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

    The narration from both actors was good. My problem was will the story itself. Horrible!!


    What could Tara Sue Me have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have A Plot!! Beside two people having kinky sex with a side of degrading with a topping of them talking about the whole scene all over again for 10 HOURS!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't have one. The only good parts of this book was when Nathaniel becomes somewhat human as he recites poetry to her & I will admit when he said you are my 1% my heart melted. Unfortunately that only lasts for one sentence then he has to open his mouth again & ruins it.


    What character would you cut from The Training?

    Since there's only really two characters in this book you really can't. Rewrite them make Nathaniel less of a sexed up egomaniac who likes to degrade the woman he "loves" in the name of dominance & more loving to her. It's called respect which he doesn't have for her.

    Then there's Abby King who is so infuriating with her "I Disappointed You" crap. How about the "He beats you & calls it foreplay, makes for crawl on all fours, & kiss his feet" stuff at least she didn't like the crawling so she does have some standards. I was wishing thru the whole book for her to say NO this is NOT okay. I Am A Person Not A PET!


    Any additional comments?

    I Wish I Hadn't Spent My Money On This Crap. Thank God I Didn't Use A Credit!!

    What did you like best about Accidental SEAL? What did you like least?

    I like the over all book. Maybe a little less focus the guy/girl meet & more on the mystery of the missing friend. Plus, it builds you up then lets you down at the end. Too Quick & Then You Don't Tell Us What Happened With Everybody.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sharon Hamilton? Why or why not?

    I'm Not Sure. Maybe After I've Listen To Another Couple Of Author's Books & Forget How Much I Hated The Ending Of This One.


    Which character – as performed by J. D. Hart – was your favorite?

    The Narrator Did An Okay Job On All The Voices Can't Says "Hey This One Voice Made The Character So Much Better Since I Haven't READ The Actual Book."


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A little less break-up & make-up from the main characters & focus more on the storyline that attracted the reader in the first place. Yes, the love story was part of it but really when you look back the missing team mate was like the 3rd priority behind the love story & all the dirty cops/navy men.


    Any additional comments?

    THE ENDING....It was like okay we're safe, I love you, marry me, & then the end....WHAT Happened to all the dirty cops, the team mates sister & baby, ect. I know there are other books but you should at least end a story with letting the reader know what happened to all the people they were just reading about. I Feel Like You Left Me HANGING...NO COOL!

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

    I Didn't Read The Printed Copy. It was a good story but I personally had some issues. Like the sex scenes are repetitive & kind-of boring. The other all story plot was slow & lacked common sense. I had it figured out by chapter 3 or 4 who was doing what, so there was no mystery to the events.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Champagne Showers?

    I listened to all three book straight in a row, so I can't say I have one memorable moment, except for the attacks.


    What aspect of Erin Coker’s performance would you have changed?

    She needs to slow down!! Take A Breath!! Not sure if it was the editing of the audio or her reading, but all through the book she runs days together like it's all one sentence. So it take a minutes to realize it's the next day or hours later in the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I wouldn't waste my money making this book into a movie when there are better love trilogies out there. Like the Thoughtless Trilogy By S.C. Stephens.

    Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

    It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly. But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable....

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I loved On Dublin Street, but something about this book left me with a bad taste in my mouth. When thinking back on the entire book I realized up until the ending there was no real plot line. Other than the characters falling in love & their own insecurities (Joanna mainly).


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    LIKED: When we got to see Jos & Braden again & with the interactions to the other characters in this story. (So Funny)
    DISLIKED: The main characters in this book. Most of the time I wanted it hit Cam for his prejudging attitude & Jo for questioning her actions & all her insecruities (which we all have but not to this extent).


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

    I love audiobook because the narrator helps bring the character's to life & with this book it was the only thing that made it enjoyable. If I had to sit & read this book I would have been bored after the first couple of chapters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No probably not. Now the 1st book Absolutely!!


    Any additional comments?

    This was an enjoyable story, but be prepared not a lot of action until the very end. Plus, I found myself not liking both main characters (which I usually like at least one). I really would give it 2.5 Stars if not for the interaction of the other characters who really made this story.

    I like the character of Kate Beckett much more than Nikki Heat. Kat is more weiter & the chemistry between the two is way better.


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

    I was disappointed with the lack of action in the story. Plus, the story was really in depth that I had problems completely following.


    What aspect of Johnny Heller’s performance would you have changed?

    At times it was hard to tell what character he was performing because they all sounded a lot alike, especially Nikki & Rook.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I LOVE THE SHOW SO YES, YES, YES!!

    Envy's life was great. Great brother, great boyfriend, and the best job a girl could ask for... tending bar at the most popular clubs in the city. At least it was great until she got a call from one of her best friends about her boyfriend doing the vertical limbo on the dance floor at Moon Dance. Her decision to confront him begins a chain of events that will introduce her to a dangerous paranormal world hidden beneath the everyday humdrum.

    What would have made Moon Dance better?

    The story is awesome full of action. It was the recording of it that graded on my nerves. It sounds like it was recorded in a warehouse & the narrator has a high nasally voice, which had me turning the volume down when I was wearing headphones...OUCH!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Dance?

    I loved the interaction and sexual tension between Envy & Devon.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Re-Record The Entire Audiobook & Get Someone With A Better Voice!!


    What character would you cut from Moon Dance?

    I think there was too many character's. I'm sure the other character which didn't have big parts will play bigger roles in other books. But at times I got confused on who was talking & in who's point of view we were reading thru.


    Any additional comments?

    The Music!! THE MUSIC!! That is in between the changing of chapters & charater's points of view was so irritating. I have never heard anyone do that before only at the beginning & end of an audiobook needs to be taken out!! Or Get Better Music!!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I really like the story! I just wish I like the characters as much. Thru most of the book I wanted to strangle either Alyssa or Luc & down right hit Tyler with a bat repeatedly!!


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

    I understand the character's emotions & backstories are the heart of the book, but making them a little more likable to each other would have been nice for the reader.


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

    She brought the character to life for me & did a great job of it, so much the character's personalities made me want to scream at them!


    Did Delicious inspire you to do anything?

    mmmm NO!! Maybe read the next book, but that's it...


    Any additional comments?

    I would have had Luc take more action when it came to Tyler & Alyssa's relationship. If the roles had been reserved Alyssa wouldn't have stand for all the personal touching they did.

    On New Year's Eve, she tumbles 700 years back in time - and into the bed of a darkly handsome knight. Sir Gaston de Varennes wanted a docile bride who would fit into his plans for vengeance and justice, but a trick of time finds him married to a thoroughly modern American lady who turns his castle, his life, and his heart upside down. Will her desperate secret tear them apart after only a few bittersweet weeks of stolen passion - or will they conquer mistrust, treachery, and time itself to discover a love that spans the centuries?

    The main male character Sir Gaston de Varennes treats Celine is humiliating & degrading. I understand he doesn't trust her, but for everybody to keep saying he is a honorable man doesn't show in the way he treats her.


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

    Make the character Gaston more likable & for Celine to act like the modern woman she is & not like a woman from the 1300 (Stand Up For Yourself @ Least Once Without Backing Down)!!


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

    She brings the characters to life that's why I listen to audiobooks.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Since a book simular to this (Outlander) is bring made into a TV series & I plan on checking that out, eventhough I cared little for the book, I probably would.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is good. The storeline is really good. I just wish the main character was more likable because if I was Celine I wouldn't have given him the time of day no matter how HOT he is & personality/character shows a person's true worth & value.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both main characters, but Camille more than Julian. He was a jerk to her when she really didn't deserved it.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    The french accents made me chuckle, otherwise he was good.

    No not really. I was able to stop & do other things with no problems. I really like the books that I can't stop with just the car ride.

    I bought it in the bogo sale of buy 1 get 1 free & was really surprised. I don't know if i would use a credit on it but definitely buy it if it's on sale. My only problem was the ending I don't think I would have taken Julian back so fast. A little groveling never hurts!!
