    Listening to Bob[cat]'s earlier work used to feel like nails on a chalkboard. On the advice (and against my better judgment) I downloaded what is truly one of FUNNIEST stand-up routines I've ever heard. Really, REALLY good work. Thanks for the laughs; worth several listens.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    Smiled, laughed, and groaned throughout the entire book. GREAT story, exceptional well-written (in an unusual style), totally engaging characters, and *lusciously* narrated. (I'm fairly sure Sebastian York could read the phonebook to me, and I'd be mesmerized). Far better book than I expected - so glad to see it is part of a new series! YUMMY!!!

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

With their scheme for a "Guys' Weekend" completely derailed anyway, Max and Bennett begin to play a wild game of stealth and secrecy in order to have their bombshells all over Sin City.

    Sparks fly when a hardboiled reporter meets a handsome senator. But a political scandal - and attempts on her life - could drive them apart. Or maybe adversity could draw them into a bond even more intense than their steamy sexual embraces.

    I could listen to Kaleo Griffith narrate a phonebook. *REALLY.* (His voice is absolute "ear-candy"). But even that could not outweigh the overwhelmingly idiotic, adolescent-level POLITICAL drivel, (intentionally) painfully mortifying embarrassing situations (son trots out into the living room bearing mom's big purple "wiggle stick" just as her new date arrives, etc.....eye roll). There WERE a few fairly well-written steamy scenes (perfectly narrated - and, I'm guessing, put there to bait one into continuing to read/listen), but, the book was - in whole - just too nauseating to finish listening to. *Gah*

    Chad Gamble, all-star pitcher for the Nationals, is one of the best players on - and off - the field. And right now, the notorious bad boy wants Bridget Rodgers. But with her lush curves and snappy comebacks, the feisty redhead is the kind of woman a man wants to settle down with...and that's the last thing Chad needs. When the paparazzi catch them in a compromising position, Chad's manager issues an ultimatum: clean up his act or kiss his multimillion-dollar contract goodbye. To save his career, his meddling publicist says he'll have to convince everyone Bridget isn't just his flavor of the week, but his girlfriend.

    Jace Crestwell, Ash McIntyre, and Gabe Hamilton have been best friends and successful business partners for years. They’re powerful, they’re imposing, they’re irresistibly sexy, and Jace and Ash share everything - including their women. When they meet Bethany, Jace begins to feel things he’s never experienced before: jealousy and a powerful obsession that threatens him, overwhelms him - and excites him beyond control. Jace isn’t sharing Bethany - with anyone. He’s determined to be the only man in her life, and it’s jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Ash.

    Story

    Preface: I normally truly enjoy Maya Banks' books. I loved "Rush," the first book in this series. I was looking forward to this sequel, and was already intrigued by the male lead and the potential for another GREAT read. I am generally empathetic and sympathetic to characters with emotional baggage, and I do NOT enjoy writing negative feedback. That said...

    I found both the wildly exaggerated, stereotypical depictions of the poor innocent little destitute "victimized-by-the-big-mean-evil-rich-greedy society" female lead ("Bethany"), to be PAINFULLY, *stupidly/immaturely* gullible, irresponsible waif literally PAINFUL to endure. I repeatedly found myself exclaiming, "Oh, for F's sake!" and PRAYING that Jace would just WALK AWAY from Bethany. I don't want to believe that there is a significant target market of readers naive enough to find this melodramatically pathetic female lead or the plot appealing. It was nauseating. Gah. Maya can do SO MUCH BETTER than this.

    There are sensuous pleasures that can only be tasted in the night.... He comes to her in the twilight between sleep and consciousness to fulfill her secret desires. Lyssa Bates has never experienced such ecstasy, brought to her by a man whose deep, soul-penetrating blue eyes hold the promise of tempting intimacies and decadent pleasures. But this stranger, this lover, this immortal seducer is only a dream - a phantom of her nocturnal fantasies - until he appears, inexplicably, at her door in the flesh!

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

    *Perfect* character portrayal in tone, accent, timing, depth, and delivery; giving them a literal, visceral, heart-stoppingly real presence. *gasp!*


    Any additional comments?

    What an unexpectedly delicious surprise. Although I already usually love Sylvia Day's writing, the description and reviews did not do this, or it's sequel justice.

    Simply spectacular, and *perfectly* narrated to impart teeth-clenching perfect feeling to the characters. *YUM*

    Only complaint would be a bit of an odd ending (more like the completion of a chapter, with so much left unresolved. She simply MUST finish the series....hope the negotiations with the publisher resume quickly or other arrangements made, because I can't WAIT to read the next book in this series!!

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Like a literary version of “Iron Chef,” Sylvia Day (Crossfire series),*OWNS* E.L. James (Fifty Shades series). Sylvia Day uses the same basic ingredients: genre of books, demographics of characters, familiar story line, target market of readers) to demonstrate how *truly* skillful writing, elegant, deep, worthy-of-caring-about character development, artistically, well-constructed and timed plot development (similar to my favorite (Diana Gabaldon - "Outlander" series) from my preferred genre historical fiction). Ms. Day demonstrates a far more mature, skillful hand at the judicial and relevant use of heart-stopping, synapse-melting, um, er…”provocative and engaging literary devices" as well as a 10,000% better choice of a more gifted and professional narrator in the audio (Audible.com) version. These are intense page-turners, with ample sprinklings of opportunities to relieve the tension by laughing out loud and sharing introspection with the flawed, funny, complicated, engaging, and sympathetic characters. Just don’t listen and drive; you’ll find yourself driving off of a cliff. Maybe while running on a treadmill? 9-) Just remember to breathe. (Not for those who are uncomfortable with some explicit sexual situations or language, even though it is well done and critical to both character, plot, and conflict development). Highly recommended. Well done.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."
