    It's her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music. Laurel Stanley performs strip-o-grams to pay her way through school. She has never encountered a more ungrateful recipient than Dana. The uptight project manager makes it clear that she is furious to be distracted from her work by the "gift".

    What did you love best about Thirteen Hours?

    It was a hot, lesbian erotic novel that didn't just end when they got together. It couldn't actually end when they got together because the Thirteen Hours in the title was at the beginning of the book and really explains how they started their relationship.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sex scenes were very good. Explicit, so if you don't like that in your books, this is not for you. Very well written as well. I also liked how real the relationship was between the two women. Not everything was roses and chocolate. O'Brien actually filled in how they continued to get close and how they each overcame the natural blips in the road that every relationship has in the beginning.


    What about Alicyn Aimes’s performance did you like?

    Aimes did do a great job at keeping the two women distinct. I don't believe I was ever confused as to who was speaking and who did what.


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

    The only extreme reaction I had was getting turned on by scenes O'Brien wrote. There were places where she made me laugh, too.


    Any additional comments?

    There aren't a lot of lesbian romances out there, which makes me turn to heterosexual romances instead. For any lesbians out there looking for a great story, look no further. I did immediately look to see if O'Brien had other books available on Audible and was very disappointed that she didn't.

    Some things are so worth waiting for. Like the moment when Jessica Ward "accidentally" bumps into Bobby Ray Smith and shows him just how far she's come since high school. Back then, Jess's gangly limbs and bruised heart turned to jelly any time Smitty's "all the better to ravish you with" body came near her. So, some things haven't changed. Except now Jess is a success on her own terms. And she can enjoy a romp - or 20 -with a big, bad wolf and walk away. Easy.

    Where does The Beast in Him rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty darn close to the top.


    What other book might you compare The Beast in Him to and why?

    Hmmmm. Because the book is so funny I would have to compare to other authors that write funny paranormal romances... Molly Harper, Michele Bardsley, Dakota Cassidy. The one difference being that I liked this series so well that I zipped through everything she had available instead of stopping in the middle like I did with the other authors.


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

    I did just read the last book in this series since the Audible version hadn't come out yet and I totally missed Kane's accents and the emotion she puts into her performance. Sarcasm and mockery are emotions, aren't they? Kane had an extremely good interpretation of the those points in Laurenston's narrative.


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

    OMG yes! I'm lucky that I drive for a living anywhere from 8 to 12 hours a day. I think I went through this whole series in two weeks. And most of that was because I was holding off buying the more expensive versions... Whispersync is your friend but there were two books in this series that weren't Whispersync compatible so I used credits for those two.


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series was amazing and hilarious. Made me run through every book as fast as I could get them. I think this book was the funniest of them all, making me laugh out loud more times than I can count. Totally recommend these books.

    Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

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

    Not sure


    What was most disappointing about Kristen Proby’s story?

    I usually don't like first person narratives. There are some books where the plot or the writing style can overcome my dislike. In fact, there are some that I would now include among my favorite books. This was definitely not one of them. The plot itself was kind of bland, with the crisis feeling contrived. Also, some of the things the female lead says I found incredibly unbelievable. I don't know that I've heard anyone in contemporary times continually refer to their partner as "my love" and it makes the relationship between the two feel a bit forced. The other thing I didn't like was that the story was written in present tense. The only other things that I have read in present tense are those short story erotica stories that use it as a way of trying to involve you in the fantasy. I found it annoying in this story. The biggest plot point I had problems with is how the heroine pours out all the secrets of her life to this man that she met 24-48 hours ago, but doesn't notice that he isn't telling her anything about himself in return. There's some mention of how she's giving him the benefit of the doubt when she notices him changing the subject when she asks him basic questions about himself. But I'm sorry, if the person I'm telling my secrets to closes himself off from me in return, that would be a big red flag for me.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Mack’s performances?

    Perhaps. I didn't actually find her voice or her performance annoying, I just don't think there was much to work with in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    My biggest problem with this book was the style of writing. I couldn't get into the story because of it, and when I heard the preview to the next book, it was written in the same style. I think I got this book during the sale of first books in a series, and usually if I find things I like enough I will try the second book. The characters in the second book actually made me consider giving it a try (they are secondary characters in this first book). But the preview did let me know that Proby's writing style wasn't just a one off, that it is actually her writing style throughout the series. (At least the first two books of it). I have enough dislike of the writing style to stop listening to the series.
