    Private investigator Isabel Spellman is back on the case and back on the couch -- in court-ordered therapy after getting a little too close to her previous subject. Filled with the signature side-splitting Spellman antics, Revenge of the Spellmans is an ingenious, hilarious, and disarmingly tender installment in the Spellman series.

    Lisa Lutz has delivered another deliciously funny out take of Izzy's world. She's being blackmailed, pushed around by an old man and she can't find her car. I laughed so hard my nose ran. I'm already getting a tissue ready for her next book.

    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.

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

    It's not often you get the guy's perspective, not the low down dirty secrets, the nasty truthful thoughts. I'd recommend this for a friend in the hopes that I would be there to watch her face as she listens to Drew spout off about men, women and how he has it all covered. Not.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author and the narrator manage to sneak the reader into the locker room of an arrogant, self assured man's mind as he falls into the 'dark' side (of love). I found myself wanting to smack Drew, laugh at him and root for him all at the same time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Drew's sister realizes that Drew hasn't had the flu for 7 days. or when his niece uses the calculator against him. or when Kate asks Drew how many ways his sister will kill him for buying the pony. or...well, one of those.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "A locker room's guide to falling in love. God help you." or "Drew had a strict rule book about Work and Woman. Until Kate used the book to start a bonfire."

    When Hannah's caught watching her late husband's cousin debauch the maid in the library, she's mortified - but also intrigued. An unpaid companion to his aunt, she's used to being ignored. The black sheep of the family, Leo has nothing but his good looks and noble birth to recommend him. Hannah ought to be appalled at what she's witnessed, but there's something about Leo that draws her to him.

    What did you love best about Improper Relations?

    A very hot and beautiful awakening to passion and love


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Leo. Smart enough to reel her in and determined enough not to let anything stop him from having her.


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

    Damn it, I cried. I hate crying. Then I listened to the whole book again.

    Known for making up his own rules of right and wrong, Texas Ranger Sam "Wildcard" MacGregor takes what he wants when he wants it, especially when it comes to women. But seduction is the last thing on his mind the moment he stumbles across an Hispanic beauty crouching in fear beside a burned-out wagon.

    Cheryl says: "These books are really good Westerns"
    "Narrators voice hot"
    Overall

    I don't think Jason Adams did a great job of Isabella's voice, however, I needed a cold shower after listening to him read every other part. I listened to this book first, then found out about the 1st book. I did like her voice, but I hope Jason reads the rest of them.
