    Story

    Overall this was a good book. Suspenseful romance, my favorite kind. The problem was the lack of realism. The main character is un-relatable and she fell for the man far too quickly and easily. Not to mention the fact that she didn't run for the hills after events began to play out, considering her quiet, non-violent background.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Story

    I was told to try this if I liked Fifty Shades. WRONG! It is WAY too similar but much more crude language and a terrible story. These people are either f()cking or fighting. No excitement. Can't count the number of times I thought "Seriously, again!?!" Plus the main characters name is AWFUL! Really, Gideon? I won't be continuing this series.

    The sheriff's deputy at the front door brings hard news to Ree Dolly. Her father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab, and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court date. Ree's father has disappeared before. The Dolly clan has worked the shadowy side of the law for generations, and arrests (and attempts to avoid them) are part of life in Rathlin Valley.

    Story

    This book made no sense. It was terrible. I didn't know what to expect as I knew nothing about the story. I never got to like the main character so I never cared what happened to her. Maybe the movie will be better.

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Frankly, I kept waiting for this book to get great. It never did. In the end I thought it was an okay story but I was disappointed in the lack of excitement. I wouldn't recommend.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This was a very exciting book with unexpected turns! I couldn't decide what to think of this stupid man. Everyone should listen to this book. It should be an audible essential if it isn't already.

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..
