    Where does Cold Blooded rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Amanda Carlson does it again in this full cast of action pack supernatural adventure. I have followed the series since the first book I am happy to say in the 3 rd book we are not disappointed. We actually learn more about Jessica powers and what it means to others. We all see a lot new supernatural creatures come to battle. I have to say I love her relationship with her mate and the ease she find when she is in trouble. I really look forward to the next book and hope we don't have long to wait.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say Jessica because she is always calm to certain point and instead of fighting the fact she is the first female werewolf she keep on trying. She never leaves a man behind and isn't afraid to do the killing her self instead of having others do it like in so many other books. She is a strong female.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they finally get to form there mate bound and she wakes to see they tore the cabin up. It is so funny


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

    Oh yes

    Billionaire businessman, Cal Sellers, knows how to get what he wants. And what he wants is Lucy Monroe. The problem? He had her once and lost her with one careless, arrogant act. And now she's standing in his office demanding her old job back. Cal has no intention of rehiring her as the co-host of his home shopping TV show, Pleasure at Home. He has an altogether different position in mind for her - as his wife.

    What did you love best about Lush?

    Cal love for this broke woman. I have to say I could tell at the end of the second book he was a good person. I have to admit he messed up a few times but what she went through made me cry and hurt for her. The way he helps her heal was so loving. I also love how they were together with there daughter. I enjoyed this one more than the first book and hope there will be third.

    Great Job

    Officer Luz is lucky she still has a job after tasering a male colleague where it counts the most. Sure, he had it coming - which is why the police chief is giving Megan a second chance. The catch? Her new partner can't carry a gun, can't drive a cruiser, and can't recite the Miranda Rights. Because her new partner is a big furry police dog. So that's what the chief meant when he called Megan's partner a real bitch...With Brigit out on the beat, Megan is writing up enough tickets to wallpaper the whole station.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Paw Enforcement?

    I have to say when Brigit was speaking about how she felt about the second date when she catches them. I laugh so hard to see it from the officer and the dogs point of view was great. I also like how they both weren't afraid to admit when they were afraid when the bomb went off.


    Have you listened to any of Coleen Marlo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first but I will be looking forward to the next one to see how they grow as partners.


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

    Yes I did listen to it on setting and my family could stop staring at me laughing to myself.

    This is a great first book to a new series.

    We're Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. We battle the real monsters of myth and legend, but this Halloween we're searching for diamonds.... A gala opening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has attracted the upper crust of Manhattan - and thieves. A trio of vile harpies attacks the crowd and steals the stars of the exhibition: a colorful cluster of seven cursed diamonds known as the Dragon Eggs. In the right mage's hands, each stone can pack a magical wallop.

    Where does The Dragon Conspiracy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far is a great book. I enjoyed the first one more but the this one was also good. I do look forward to learning more about Rake. I think he is going to make it interesting. The whole SPI team is great but I would love to more of the others stories as well. I also love learning more about the dragon.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Seeing the 2 main hero's find romantic interest. I think it is going to bring a little tension to the story and that should be good. Also when we learn of an old enemy being behind it again.


    Have you listened to any of Johanna Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oh yes she is great I love all her book. I love way of telling a story she makes you feel so comfortable you want to keep cleaning house so you can finish the book.

    I look forward to seeing were the story takes us next.

    The New York Times best-selling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest - where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price.... The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before - both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vision in Silver?

    I have to say I enjoy Simons jealous of others. I really liked it when he got jealous of Sam because he got to rub Megs head. I also I am enjoying how the story is taking the friendship of Meg and Simon toward romance but in a slow place were they are learning to become more together. I also love seeing how the others are learning to except some of the humans and there ways enough to ask them questions.

I really look forward to the next one with the way we ended this book.

    Well in the second book it was nice to see how Mel was contributing to finding all the body parts. I won't spoil it for anyone but I just love that little dog. Also I love see how she work with both love interest this time. I also love how Jenn got involved also. Her Mother brought more to the story as well I do hope we get to learn more about her parents in the future. The killer oh wow didn't see that one coming at all so it was nice to get stumped till the end.


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

    Did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When her mother broke down and shared with her about her dad and her feelings about the island and it people on there. I think it was a growing experience for them both. Also when both men kissed her. It's nice to see that even the plan girl can get attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy the last 2 books and look forward to seeing more. I think it would be great to see her go through a winter on the island and I look forward to seeing were that goes.

I think the getting to see Skye and Wally interact more in the story was nice. The mystery was good and keep me guessing but I really look forward to seeing what happens when they get back home.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes but not as much as enjoying watching the couples become closer friends. I think it was nice to see Owen get more involved and also the interaction of Jed her Dad input. Wally was so laid back that it was nice to see him have faith in the women.
