    Subject: Troy Metaxas. Intense—and intensely sexy—businessman. He never mixes business and pleasure… until he meets his sirenlike new lawyer! Object: Kendall Banks. Hotshot attorney. Willing to do anything to save her family from ruin…no matter how devastating the cost! Situation: They're fighting to rescue an economically beleaguered town…right before Christmas.

    I've found the only way to listen to this particular narrator is to speed up the playback, from normal to faster. This brings the narrator up to a normal speed. Otherwise, the pace is too measured, too slow, and too excruciating to listen to.

    To settle a feud, Dominique Beauchamp was resigned to wed in order to heal their injured lands. Offered in marriage by her brother to the lord of Drakewich, she came to take the d'Lucy name... but never counted on losing her heart to the brother of her betrothed - the Black Dragon. Blaec d'Lucy mistrusted her from the beginning, believing her to be part of her brother's endless perfidy, but he was powerless to resist the fiery-haired vixen that rode so proudly into their midst. Their love was sealed... once upon a kiss.

    What would have made Once Upon a Kiss better?

    Better writing. Too much reliance on exclamations of 'God's truth' or 'Sweet Mary' or a number of other ones. Did the characters really need to say that in every sentence?


    Has Once Upon a Kiss turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just this author.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Braden Wright’s performances?

    Depends on what it being narrated. His female voices are too awful. But he has a good voice, and his male voices are very good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not that I can think of.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed. The description sounded good, but this is the first book I've listened to by this author. I'll make a note to avoid her in the future.

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Where does Mystery Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high. I've read all of Kristen Ashley's books, and was very happy to see them offered on audio.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I agree with other reviews in that the storyline and characters are not real world, but if I wanted to read/listen to real world, I'd stick to history and biography. This is a work of fiction, who cares if it's real? It's enough to just live in the fantasy for a while.


    What three words best describe Kate Russell’s voice?

    Too New Jersey. This book is set in Colorado, why does everyone seem to have a New Jersey accent?

    Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha - that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me…something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing - and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me.

    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    Although I have always admired Arte Johnson, and would love to listen to more books he's narrated, I am a firm fan of George Wilson and I've always thought he is the best narrator for any Hiaasen book. His dry reading, pace, and timing cannot be matched.

    Ex-champion bull-rider-turned-cutting-horse-cowboy Joe Daniels isn't quite sure how he ended up sleeping in a horse trough wearing nothing but his Stetson and cowboy boots. But now he's wide awake, and a citified woman is glaring down at him. His goal? Get rid of her ASAP. The obstacle? Fighting the attraction he feels toward the blond-haired filly with the big, vulnerable eyes. When out-of-work wedding planner Mariah Callahan learns that her estranged father has left her a rundown ranch in Jubilee, she has no choice but to accept it.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Lori Wilde? Why or why not?

    Maybe. The story, what I could stand to listen to, was cute.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better inflection. The narrator seemed like she was trying to make this a comedy.


    What character would you cut from The Cowboy Takes a Bride?

    none

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. This was $4.95 special purchase, but I should have paid attention to the narrator. Brenda Jackson is ok, but the narrator, Madison Vaughn, is so awful, it's painful to listen to her. I speeded up the pace, which helped, but the delivery is too stagey, with too many breathey, emotional pauses. Very irritating.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brenda Jackson? Why or why not?

    Yes, if the narrator was different.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A totally different narrator.


    Was A Little Dare worth the listening time?

    No.

    Smite Turner is renowned for his single-minded devotion to his duty as a magistrate. But behind his relentless focus lies not only a determination to do what is right, but the haunting secrets of his past - secrets that he is determined to hide, even if it means keeping everyone else at arm's length. Until the day an irresistible woman shows up as a witness in his courtroom. Miranda Darling isn't in trouble - yet. But she's close enough that when Turner threatens her with imprisonment if she puts one foot wrong, she knows she should run in the other direction.

    What did you like best about Unraveled? What did you like least?

    I greatly disliked the narrator. I have listened to the previous books in this series and enjoyed them, and got this one without looking at the reviews and listening to a sample. Bad, bad decision. The narrator made everyone sound like whiny old ladies, even the male characters.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Quinn’s performances?

    No way.


    Any additional comments?

    Many times I have listened to a book that wasn't that great a story just because the narration would so good. In this case, I didn't get beyond the first chapter before I stopped. I'll have to get this in ebook form and read it now. A waste of a good credit.

    What if a reality TV show like Jersey Shore set up production in the fictional seaside resort Sea Haven? What if hitting the gym, tanning, and doing a little laundry aren't the only things the contestants get into? By-the-book officer John Ceepak and his wisecracking young partner, Danny Boyle, have to babysit the buff and boozy kids partying it up in a Jersey shore rental house for TV’s summertime hit Fun House while simultaneously trying to stop the rowdy kids from breaking the law up and down the beach. But even Ceepak and Danny can’t stop one young cast member from being murdered—and others from being threatened with the same fate.

    Roundhouse Publishing editor Kate C. Leever’s first letter to her newest legacy author was intended to impress upon him the growing demand for his “vampire romances.” Though he’d expressed little to no desire for publicity, book tours or the like, it was clear that this was a writer waiting to be broken out. Correspondence with Mr. Lucern Aregeneau tended to be oddly delayed, but this time his response was quick and succinct.
