    Everyone has secrets. Some are buried so deep, that their existence is forgotten. But a secret never told can turn into a lie. And in love, a lie is one thing: Poison. Reid's in love with Dori, though she hasn't told her parents that she's fallen hard for the one guy they've forbidden her to see. Now she's leaving for college, and Reid's promise not to push her to go public is wearing thin, especially when she can't - or won't - return those three important words he wants to hear.

    What made the experience of listening to Here Without You the most enjoyable?

    The dialogue and the narrators. I've had the book on my kindle for weeks and have been reading it in my spare time. I finally got the audio book and couldn't stop listening. The way Kate would put a slight southern accent in her voice and by it you knew Brooke was upset is so impressive.


    What other book might you compare Here Without You to and why?

    The other Tammara Webber books (Between the Line Series, Easy), K.A. Tucker books (Ten Tiny Breaths, One Tiny Lie), or Jessica Park's, Flat Out Love.


    What does Todd Haberkorn and Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They were awesome. I like Kate's male characters more then Todd's female characters but they are wonderful at what they do. Todd even handled the voice of a child well. Both narrators gave good distinction between the character's voices and I knew who was talking even if it wasn't clearly delineated. As I stated before, the way Kate would put a slight southern accent in her voice; and, by it, you knew Brooke was upset was so impressive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Tammara Webber's descriptive phrasing. She is so good at what she does and helps me to really empathize with the characters.

    Madeleine Becker's parents died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can't get hurt if she doesn't fall in love.That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious.

    Story

    I am going to preface this review with the fact that I read Let Love Live prior to reading this story. I am a HUGE fan of MM books and enjoyed the friendship between Reid and Dylan immensely. In Let Love Live, we get to see how life was in the Connelly household growing up. I was very interested in seeing how Reid dealt with the situation and how he grew from it as he got older. 90 % of the information we received about Reid's past in Let Love In conflicts with Let Love Live. It really turned me off from the story.

    Also, Maddy's obsession with Reid's purported cheating I just did not get. I understand he was a player prior to Maddy, but a player does not equate cheater in my book. Just because he liked no strings sex, doesn't mean he lies about it. Actually, everyone makes it clear in the book that he never lies about being a "ladies man".

    I, also, understand that losing a lot of people in her life makes Maddy wary of relationships and loving another, but I do not understand the leap to the person I will love will hurt/cheat on me. Or, why she would insist that Reid forgive his mother when he (from Let Love In's storyline) has great reason to never speak to her again. Her reasoning that she lost her mother (who was a kind, loving, person) means that Reid has to forgive his mother (who was a selfish, uncaring b*tch) doesn't make sense.

    And, finally, I know that I am way more liberal than the majority but to have a Dr. tell a single, 18 year old girl that she has to love and keep her "baby" when she is a few weeks along made me so angry. I would hope that, heaven forbid, my daughter was ever in that situation, educated people that are in a position to advise her would let her know that she has her whole life in front of her and that having a child at 18 may not be the best choice for her future. Even if they don't mention/bring up the right to choose with her, they could at least mention adoption. To say that a "baby" will be with you forever now and that Maddy should be happy reeks of judgmental attitudes that earlier in the book Reid's character stated was the reason his brother took the actions he did.

    Former mercenary Bull Krebbs now heads up security at his nightclub in Harrisburg, PA. Working the door night after night, he's seen it all. Though tough on the outside, he's a little hurt that people find him unapproachable. Then he pulls a cute twink out of line to perform a random search, and he's surprised when the guy giggles and squirms. Zach Spencer, graphic artist, twink, and seriously ticklish, isn't intimidated by Bull. He's in awe, and when Bull saves Zach from being trampled on the dance floor, Zach finds his inspiration for the superhero in his graphic novel.

    What would have made Inside Out better?

    Better writing, better narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    I love a sweet love story but this was over the top. Within the 6 hours and 45 minutes of listening, all of the suffering hero's problems were solved. The writing did not appeal to me. I don't know if the narrator was bad or if I just hated the writing so much, I couldn't handle John Solo's narration.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment, bile rising.


    Any additional comments?

    definitely not worth a credit.

    Claire is a 20-something, single mom who grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life. When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time. With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim-to-none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

    Would you listen to Seduction and Snacks again? Why?

    Yes. The dialogue is laugh out loud funny.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Carter. He is just so sweet. I loved Drew too. We all need a friend like that. :D


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She is HORRIBLE. The characters all have the same voice. It would be like me reading a book out loud. The male and female characters sound the same, so you have to figure out who is talking by the context. So frustrating for an audio book.


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

    Seriously funny. Great way to escape and put yourself in a good mood.


    Any additional comments?

    Some parts were over the top, but the overall book was very sweet and funny.
