    This is a simple book. If you're looking for profound - look elsewhere. It was entertaining and helped my driving time pass - and for that it earned 4 stars. The end had me downloading the next book immediately!

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    I just did not "buy" this story from the very beginning... I'm all about suspending belief but this was a bit much for me... it seemed like the story was secondary to the sex scenes.. and it's not my personal preference. The narration was fine. However, the last two hours or so of the book were great. I really enjoyed the ending. It was very satisfying. I won't be downloading the other books in this series though. Not my thang.

    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

    Story

    This book has been hanging out in my library for a year... what was I thinking?? I loved it! All of it! and can't wait to listen to the next book in the series. The Heroine, Michael, as she likes to be called, is so different than characters you normally read about. I didn't so much like her in the beginning but as the author shows you why she is the way she is I began to really root for her. By the end of the book I was a Vanessa/Michael fan! This book builds to a crescendo and leaves you with a very satisfying ending - all while trying to figure out who is the leak. Great listen. You won't waste your credit here.

    Oh! And Hilary Huber did a fantastic job of narrating... simply wonderful.

    Lady Philippa Marbury is...odd. The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest - 14 days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.

    Story

    I have to remember that I don't like this narrator.. personal preference kind of thing.. I just do not care for the voice she uses for the Hero in her narration.. ugh.. so I'm sure that influenced my feelings about the book in total... I like quirky so I especially liked the heroine of this book - total quirky!... Sarah MacLean did a good job of making me care what happened to her and to our Hero. I would have liked a bit more action and a little less talk or description but again, a personal preference. The story was creative and entertaining as our nerdy Heroine seeks to do her research on what's expected on her wedding night. Unfortunately (and somewhat unbelievably), she choose a rogue and scoundrel to find her answers. This was a bit of a stretch but I suspended my disbelief and went with it... and I'm glad I did. The book was entertaining with a satisfying ending.

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    Sometimes you just need a fluff book... this would be that book.. some lighthearted, fun moments... and the narrator is awesome. Yes, it's predictable. No, you're not going to be surprised. The romance is sweet and you can listen to this one with you daughter because it's clean and just.. well.. fun. The story follows a frustrated 20-somthing who's dissatisfied with her life and makes big plans to leave until her plans are interrupted by, you guessed it, a little night magic. We follow the herione as she learns about her powers and figures out who to trust and who not to trust. In the end, she has to chose whether to sacrifice herself for her little town full of people she loves.. or is there another way she can protect them?? If this one is on sale? Buy it, but I wouldn't spend a full credit on it.

    This exciting finale to Lauren Olive's New York Times best-selling Delirium trilogy is a riveting blend of nonstop action and forbidden romance in a dystopian United States. Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion that was underway in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven.

    Story

    Really enjoyed this 3rd book even more than the other two. Interestingly, each book just got better and I cared more and more about the characters as the trilogy unfolded. This book uses another "voice" to tell the story by using both the heroine's point of view and the point of view of her best friend, Hannah. It was insightful and entertaining. If you're one of those people who requires everything to be tied up nice and tight to enjoy the ending of the book you may be a bit disappointed. For me, the end was satisfying and hopeful. I can now highly recommend this trilogy... as an uplifting tale about human nature.

    I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare, pushing aside thoughts of Alex, pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school, push, push, push, like Raven taught me to do. The old life is dead. But the old Lena is dead too. I buried her.I left her beyond a fence, behind a wall of smoke and flame. Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bests eller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

    Just what I needed in the second book - a bit more action with a faster pace... and I got it. I liked how the story was told backwards and forwards - a bit of now, a bit of then, a bit of now... and in the end it all came together. Speaking of the ending (no spoilers)... I love a book that ENDS but still leaves me excited for the next book and that's what this one accomplished. It had a definite, resolution oriented, ending but I've already downloaded Book 3, Requiem and will start it tonight. I care about these characters... and can't wait to see what Lauren Oliver has in store for them. As for narration, Sarah Drew could not have done a better job. Superior narration!

    "Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

    Story

    This was not the caliber of The Hunger Games but the story was intriguing enough to keep my interest AND download book 2 in the series immediately. It was just a bit slow in development and lots of talk without as much action. The story surrounds a society who considers "love" to be a type of delirium. As a result, love is outlawed and once 18 their brains are altered to not allow the extreme emotion. We watch as the heroine of the story learns what love is and is willing to risk all to experience it. The character development was good and by the end of the book I couldn't wait download the next book because the adventure, it seems, is just getting started. It's definitely worth a credit and if you enjoy YA fiction, the odds of enjoying Delirium are high. The narrator could not have been better and really captured the characters well. Great job!

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    Kinda makes the guys on the Prepper show not look so crazy... I was amazed at how the fact that the story took place in the 1950s really didn't impact the relatability or believability... Especially with recent threats from South Korea. The characters were warm... the pulling together of a community against all odds.. good vs evil.. and the Narrator was amazing. I love a good story of the brave and conquering human spirit and this is one good story.

    Fluff... Lots of fluff... but I really enjoy the light heartedness that Julia Quinn puts into her characters. So I found myself smiling throughout the book - and sometimes that's just what I need! The plot is predictable but the quirky characters are just fun and the author ensures you really do care about what happens to them. A fun, pleasant read perfect when you need a smile.

    My biggest problem with the book was the narrators voice for our Hero... it took me half the book to "listen through" the voice. He sounded like a popinjay - someone that lacked strength or intelligence. I didn't like it at all.
