    Faith Holland left her hometown after being jilted at the altar. Now a little older and wiser, she's ready to return to the Blue Heron Winery, her family's vineyard, to confront the ghosts of her past, and maybe enjoy a glass of red. After all, there's some great scenery there.... Like Levi Cooper, the local police chief - and best friend of her former fiancé. There's a lot about Levi that Faith never noticed, and it's not just those deep green eyes.

    After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn - the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies - to make her an offer she can't refuse.

    What made the experience of listening to Neanderthal Seeks Human the most enjoyable?

    I like the characters and their quirks. The story is very well written and entertaining. The mature content is not graphic, it is more or less glossed over or alluded to. I am fine with that, but I noticed in some of the Amazon reviews that people were unhappy with it. The story carries itself and doesn't need extra embellishment of the NC17 variety.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the factoids that the female lead would throw into conversation when she was nervous. As a fellow collector of trivia it amused me. I consider it a good story when it inspires me to look up things mentioned in the book to get more information.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Audible is able to get the rest of Ms. Reid's books on in their collection. I have them all on kindle now, but I do enjoy the audio versions.

    Kate Lamonica isn't Koti James' type. Too small. Too dark. And heaps too much work. So it's an easy bet that he can be her friend for six weeks without making a move on her, no matter what his mates would have said. Kate can't believe she's made the bet at all. New Zealand had seemed like the perfect escape from the stalker who'd threatened first her peace of mind and then her life. She certainly doesn't need any more trouble. Why on earth has she agreed to spend time with a Maori rugby player who's far too handsome and charming for his own good - and knows it?

    What did you love best about Just Good Friends?

    I really enjoyed this story. It has all of the elements I look for and more. There is a strong sense of fun, romance (but only after a relationship develops), suspense, and the x factor. The x-factor is that thing that takes you to another place and gives you enough curiosity to make you go and google things after you are done with the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Koti because he was a strong character with a number of defects that were explained and to a certain extent overcome. The growth his character goes through is a great part of the story. Plus he's hot. :-)


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

    This is a strong story both to read and to have read to you. The narrator seems to handle nuances and the new zeland accent well enough that it didn't take me out of the story. However I will confess, I read this book before I ordered the audio book. I am happy to see Audible picking up this author. They didn't have her work available when I first discovered her.

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    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....

    yes and she is good here too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not necessarily but it did have my full attention when I was listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the other books in the series but I didn't like Jo in those books so I was surprised when I really got into Jo's story. I even skipped it and listened to the next one in the series before I got his one. I put off getting it but they aren't cooperating with my desire to read Hannah's story RIGHT NOW! So I figured I would give this one a try. To my surprise I really found myself involved. I like the characters. They are flawed and very angst ridden but I enjoyed their journey in this book. It was satisfying to listen to.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

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

    I honestly think so. The narrator has a wonderful way with the humor in the story. She managed to narrate her way through a variety of wall banging organisms in a way that made them funny and edgy but not uncomfortable. This was a very funny story but the narration was even better. The best I have heard in a while in fact. I hope they have Heather Smith do more of Alice Clayton's work! Keep the work coming her way she is truly gifted!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mimi. Loud, tiny, and obsessively organized is one hell of a combination. :-) I also liked the cat Clive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the one where her friends stop by about when the wall banging starts up next door and they all sit back to listen. I was laughing so hard I almost choked.


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

    It was very funny but I also had a few moments that brought on the angst. Not too much but enough that I knew the author had me by the tail and could make me feel what she wanted too. I laughed alot and actually cried once.


    Any additional comments?

    I got a bit frustrated with all of the talk of the "O". by the end I pretty much fast-forwarded through the love scenes because halfway through the good part she would start waxing poetic about her orgasm like it was a woman who was playing hard to get. I kind of wanted to slap the character at that point. There was enough to make up for it, but that particular plot line was overdone. If you can't come then get drunk enough and get a vibrator.... It doesn't merit that much drama.

    Would you recommend The Executive's Decision to your friends? Why or why not?

    I'll tell them to read the book. It looked like this narrator is lined up for the next one in the series so I won't be bothering with the audio book if that is the case. I'm not particularly picky either.

    Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he's your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy...among other things, and it won't happen again. Jules won't risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jules. She has gumption... I liked Nate but I thought he should have had more of an edge based on how he was described.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Good overall performance. The narrator has trouble remembering what male voice she used for what character. I am glad they picked up a male narrator later in the series.


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

    Not suitable for children under the age of seventeen. :-)

She's already learned about loving a celebrity the hard way and isn't signing up for another lesson. Every time Sam gives Leo attitude, he wants to knock that chip off her fragile little shoulder. What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He's not used to women treating him like he's poisonous, and he isn't about to let her run away every time he gets close. He's had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime...when this one runs, he gives chase.

    What did you love best about Rock with Me?

    I liked the characters. They were edgy and still managed to retain that aspect of their character despite the romance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how the author lets the characters somewhat determine what shape their happy ending takes. Often in this kind of book it is always a wedding and 2.5 kids. It was for some of the other books in the series, but these two don't fit that mold and she didn't squeeze them into it. I also like the way she writes a musician. When the story is told from his perspective he notices sounds and nuances that would appeal to a musician and an artist. She doesn't just rewrite the same character over and over but with different hair and career. They really are individuals. I enjoy that.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Mack – was your favorite?

    Samantha.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! Sadly I had to sleep at some point..

    Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does. He's never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries. But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis. Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb's resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.

    Not my favorite one in the series but still fun, sexy, and entertaining.
