    Hudson Pierce has led a life few others could even imagine. With money and power at his fingertips, he's wanted for almost nothing. He's never experienced love, however, and he's seen few examples of it in his dysfunctional family. The ridiculous notion of romance has always intrigued him. He's studied it, controlled it, manipulated it, and has yet to understand it. Until he meets Alayna Withers. Now, the games he's played in his quest for comprehension can finally come to an end.

    Would you try another book from Laurelin Paige and/or James Patrick Nelson?

    Yes - Loved the Fixed Series - but Hudson was a waste of time and money. The background provided was not worth the time it took to listen.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laurelin Paige again?

    Yes - all of the Fixed Series - Hudson was the dissappointment.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Patrick Nelson?

    anyone else


    What character would you cut from Hudson?

    All of them -


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend the " Fixed" series , but if you were looking for more with the final installment - Save your time and your credit. It was a big let-down for me!

    Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr "The Siberian" Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well - on his own wicked terms. PhD student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This has got to be one of he best books that I have listened to in along time. I am in love with all ofthe characters. But best of all it actually has story that gets youo hooked from the very beginning and steamy scenes woven into the story line. I can not wait for the next installment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The attraction between the mail characters is very compelling


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

    Yes I have listend to some of her paranormal books but, this contemporary approach may be her best work - hope she does more in the future.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Professional: Part 1 and why?

    Sevastyan - He oozes sexuality

    Steel is beyond irritated when he is maneuvered into ownership of a fragile human female. She’s not nearly big enough to handle his size or strength, yet she’s determined to get him into bed - into her. Steel realizes just what this little female is capable of when he awakens, chained to his bed, with her riding his very turned-on body. For a man who prides himself on his unyielding control, Steel soon finds Rena stripping him of it an inch at a time.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have read the books out of order so compared to the others, this one was a little flat. The story line was not that interesting and truthfully you could skip this one and not miss anything in the series.


    What was most disappointing about Laurann Dohner’s story?

    It really didn't have a story line and the hype regarding the love interest was not that intriguing. These character just didn't appeal to me. It appears that the author was a little confused as to how to develop the plot and the characters.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    What can go wrong overseeing a bunch of android sex bots on an automated whorehouse in deep space? Great job, if Megan doesn’t die of boredom. Then she catches sight of the sexiest male she’s ever seen. On her grainy security monitor, she watches all his sexual exploits with the bots, and fantasizes. But that’s all she can do because he's a cyborg. Then fate steps in. There’s a crash and Megan must escape or die. The cyborgs are rescuing the sex bots - taking them onboard their ship. She knows cyborgs hate humans. They’ll kill her if she asks for help so she devises an insane plan - pretend to be the most realistic sex bot ever made.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was excited to follow the path of these two unconventional lovers. Book two in the series seemed rushed just words on paper and a plot not well thought out. The story line was poor and did not seem to pick up until the very end - just in time to hook in you for book three. Hope it gets better. My advice skip book 2 you will not miss anything important that you can't pick up in book 3.

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.
