    It's werewolf mating season. All the males are in heat and the driving, sexual lust of their beasts is almost uncontrollable. Mika is human, in an alley, surrounded by four horny werewolves. She knows she's in deep shit. A tall, handsome werewolf rescues her then demands payment. Hot, sweaty, intimate payment. Grady is a half breed whose human mother abandoned him to his werewolf father, so he knows human women just aren't safe to fall in love with. The wolf within him wants Mika as his mate, but Grady will not give in. Never. Ever.

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

    I would recommend anything by Laurann Dohnner. I have read all her books and love the fact that I can now listen to them when I am doing chores and driving.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mate Set?

    I believe my favorite moment in the book is when Mika and Grady run into each other after they have already met and have to keep the fact from Mika's uncle Omar.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Grady has to explain himself for the fact he lied to Mika and had to explain why he was trying to trick her into thinking Mating Season was still happening.


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

    I had strong reactions as a woman. I could feel how hurt Mika is during the whole book and how being a human makes it impossible to make Grady love her.


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes Grady is a huge jerk, but he can also be the most sweet man in the world. He takes Mika on a wild ride of emotions until they finally get together and settle into a couple who can manage both worlds.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved that this book had everything I want in a good story. Great characters, great plot, wonderful voice to listen to while getting involved in the story and hard problems to solve.


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    Kirsten Potter did an excellent job with the narration, especially the accents.


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

    She lived in a world of her own making, until he woke her up from her hibernation.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    If you could sum up Ender's Game in three words, what would they be?

    Thought provoking adventure


    What other book might you compare Ender's Game to and why?

    Interestingly enough, this book kind of reminded me of the Harry Potter books, only in a more serious setting. Both have young boys who are thrust into a world they do not understand. Both learn to cope with all the downfalls and life lessons as they make friends and fight evil.


    Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    New listener to both, but the performance was great!


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

    I listened to most of it on a long car trip. Had a hard time when we had to stop. My husband listened as well and we both enjoyed it.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though this book was written 20 years ago, it is a great story line and really makes us think about humanity and how we would react to an actual alien invasion. It also makes you think about how the world will look in the future. Very though provoking.

    Ten years after Blayne Thorpe first encountered Bo Novikov, she still can't get the smooth-talking shifter out of her head. Now he's shadowing her in New York-all seven-plus feet of him - determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is....

    What did you love best about Beast Behaving Badly?

    I love the shifter world that Shelly Laurenston has created. Every character is rich in details and humor. I usually laugh from the first to the last page.


    What other book might you compare Beast Behaving Badly to and why?

    I have read a lot of shifter books, but Shelly Laurenston has my favorite shifter only series. I also enjoy her Dragon series books, written as G.A. Aiken as well.


    What about Charlotte Kane’s performance did you like?

    I loved Charlotte Kane's performance. She has just enough deep growl in her voice to convey the shifters perfectly while still making the women sound like women and the men like men. Being from the south, it's hard to get the southern accent right, but she did a really good job.


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

    It made me laugh, a lot. If you want a serious romance, stay away from Laurenston. If you want a laugh your pants off and enjoy a really good story book, then pick up any of hers.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not the first book in the series. I would recommend reading in this order:
    The Mane Event
    The Beast in Him
    The Mane Attraction
    The Mane Squeeze
    Beast Behaving Badly
    Big Bad Beast
    Bear Meets Girl
    Wolf With Benefits
    Howl For It anthology – "Like a Wolf With a Bone"

    So, as you can see, Beast Behaving Badly is the 5th book. It contains characters from the other books, which build on the series and make the whole thing enjoyable.

    Trina Mattews lost her husband of 16 years to a tragic accident. Starting her life over in the small town of Hailey, Texas, at the age of 38 sounded like a good idea but she never counted on the loneliness she’d experience. Navarro Raine is the hottest man she’s ever seen. He’s tall, with piercing blue eyes and Native American beauty. He fills her nighttime fantasies and makes her wonder about all the things she’s yet to experience in bed. And Navarro has a reputation for being very good in that department.… Discovering he’s about to lose his family ranch, Trina has the perfect solution for both of them....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Propositioning Mr. Raine to be better than the print version?

    I think they are equally awesome. This is one of my favorite Laurann Dohnner books because the people are more real. Instead of cyborgs and new species (which I love as well) I can sit back and feel like I am a part of the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Trina, because she is the most loyal woman ever. She never puts her dead husband down, even if he was sadly lacking. She is heroic in the fact that she finds the courage to try and make a new life when he dies and she is everything that Navarro needs in his life.


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

    I have not listened to anything by Liz Chastain before, but I have already downloaded the second book in the series and will be listening to it soon.


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

    Can you find the courage to take a wild chance on love? To live out your wild fantasies for 8 weeks? Would you dare?


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this audio book as I have always enjoyed this book period. It is racy and has some very explicit sex scenes. No one under the age of 18 should listen to this book.

    Flint is tall, gorgeous and dangerous. He’s a cyborg - the absolute ultimate alpha male. He takes what he wants and holds what is his. Mira is his now. He takes her aboard his ship and has her branded with his mark. He captured her, owns her, and she will serve his every need. Mira is instantly drawn to Flint, fascinated by his seductive appeal. The sex between them is smoking hot. Until she finds out he is a breeder, contracted to a dozen cyborg women, and she is no more than a possession.

    Where does Burning Up Flint rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is in one of the top ten books that I have listened to, even if I want to kick Flint in the cojones sometimes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It took me on a wild rush of emotions. From depression to lust to amazement to jealousy to happiness.


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

    This is the first book I have heard by Mindy Kennedy. Her performance was fine. Sometimes there was a little background noise, which was distracting, but overall the performance was pretty good.


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

    How do you save yourself from a cyborg? You don't. You join them...in bed.


    Any additional comments?

    Although Flint can be a royal pain in the a$$ and can make you go, duh, it is a great beginning to the cyborg series by Laurann Dohnner. Each book gets better and I look forward to listening to more stories come to life.
