    Brandee has been dumped in every way possible, but by text is the last straw. That's it - she's officially done with men. Unfortunately, she's just been told her "soul mate" is the drool-worthy hottie all her friends call One-Night Nick. Nick has been searching for true love for 100 years. After all, werewolves mate for life, and he does not want to mess this up. As soon as he kisses Brandee, he knows she's the one. But how will he convince a woman who knows nothing of paranormals that she's about to be bound to a werewolf forever?

    What was most disappointing about Ashlyn Chase’s story?

    I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like about the story. Normally this is right up my alley. The love scenes were hot but the story just didn't pull me in. I could have put the book down at any point and not finished it.

    I think it lost me when there was a frustrated, grumpy Mother Nature who had a council with the other gods that watched over the paranormals with human spy's. The fact that Mother Nature looks down her nose on everyone just seemed it was trying too hard to create drama. The fact that all this is because she won't have sex because she doesn't know what she will give birth too was just a little unbelievable.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I didn't have an issue with narrator. I'm not honestly sure if it was the story or what about this one. It really looked like it should have been a good story. I'm not sure why it just didn't do it for me.


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

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing.


    Any additional comments?

    It did have a happy ending. That was the best part of the book. I wish I had liked the book but I don't think I'll pick up anymore in the series. Sorry.

    Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

    Would you listen to Burned again? Why?

    Yes. The book is very well written and has a bit of everything in it. You have a lot going on in this book across the many characters. This is one of those books I didn't want to end and when it did I'm on pins and needles waiting for the next one.

    I couldn't wait for this book to come out and now I'm in the same boat with the next one. If you haven't read Karen Marie Moning I highly suggest them. I'd start with the Highlander series and then the fever series, since the Highlanders make cameo appearances throughout the fever books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That's a tough choice. I love all of the characters but it was good to see Mac and Barrons back in this one. I don't like Jade and hope Dani is back in the next one. I do love the way Dani is aged up in this one. Once she is back in character she can compete in the romance department.


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

    I couldn't put it down. There is so much happening in the story it's really hard to find a place to stop.


    Any additional comments?

    These books are packed with so much story from beginning to end. There is never a dull moment and I always want more story. I can fall into these stories and see them unfold. Each character is perfect and you can see the story unfold around them.

    KMM does an amazing job of keeping the storyline straight with so many main characters. Amazing job!. Going to listen to the entire Fever series again right now. I wish I had the Highlanders on audio. Guess those will by my next buy.

    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

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

    If you are looking for a hard core, raw, raunchy book about down and dirty sex then look no further. The sex scenes in this book are hot and explicit and there are about 9 solid hours of them.

    Actually this book should be in the erotic heading not romance/suspense. There wasn't any "romance" and the only suspense was waiting for actual penetration. She had plenty of orgasms but you have to wait until over half way through the book before there is actual penetration.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    probably paranormal romance which this is definitely not


    Which character – as performed by Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne – was your favorite?

    I don't know. The characters didn't grow or build, which is a shame because the story had potential.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get me wrong...I love a good sex scene as much as the next but I like for it to have a little substance as well. I did sit through the whole book, waiting, hoping something would happen.

    The male voice was only the last 20 min or so and I fast forwarded through almost all of that. I had already heard enough of the sex scenes and just didn't want to hear anymore. The female narrator did an excellent job though. She had a very pleasant voice and read very well.

    That's about all I can say. I picked it up on the 4.95 sale so at least I didn't spend a credit on it. It's not one I'll ever listen to again. I didn't hate the book but it bored me to tears. I had close to an hour at the beginning to get to know the characters then pure sex for 9 hours then about an hour or two of story and it ended with sex.

    Bourbon Street blues singer Emelie is once bitten, twice shy. When she learns that Justin is back in town, she wants nothing to do with the once wild Cajun teenager who fled with the law on his tail-and broke her heart. But she can't deny the red-hot attraction between them - or his efforts to prove he's finally changed his hell-raising ways. Can she trust that this time the bad boy of the bayou will be the best man for her?

    You can't help but love the quirky little old lady that plays cupid for everyone. I loved Tante Lulu in all the previous Cajun romance series and would buy those on audiobook if they came out.*hint, hint*

    This is starting another set so you don't have to read the ones before. Tante Lulu is a card and you never know what she's going to say. This is basically two young lovers forced apart finding their way over all the obstacles in their way back to each other. With a big push from Tanta Lulu.

    J.F. Harding did an decent job. He does have different voices and tried hard with the Cajun accent. I would have preferred a better Cajun accent but I still loved the book anyway. Can't wait to see who Tante Lulu sets her sights on next.

In Left to Die, the Pinewood County Sheriff 's Department is on the trail of a cold-blooded killer who acts as a savior to women stranded during terrible mountain snowstorms before stripping them of their dignity and leaving them to die, a victim of the elements. But the killer's latest victim managed to escape, leading some to believe there may now be an imposter on the loose.

    Would you listen to Left to Die again? Why?

    it was a good read. This is a mufti person series so it took me just a bit to get into it. Just when I was thinking the plot was predictable it kept twisting and kept me guessing. I had no idea it was a series until I got to the end, and it didn't quite end.


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

    Yes and I picked the second book up immediately. The story was going in so many directions at once but each one was well written out. I wasn't sure who the main focus was until the end. But then it didn't end actually. I can't really say why without going into details. It was worth the read to me.


    Which character – as performed by Alan Nebelthau – was your favorite?

    Regan Pascoli. I can relate to her. A single mother trying to do the best she can for her kids only to have the ex be the shinning knight while she's the bad guy.

    All of the characters were well written and I could see a lot of potential plots behind each one of them. The narrator didn't have the multiple voices but he did a very good job. I always knew who was talking. Except which creep was narrating in the background


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

    No extreme reaction. There was suspense but not an emotional roller coaster

    She's cautious, careful - and about to lose control of her future to a marriage of inconvenience. So, what can reluctant bride Katie McAuley do? Easy - let a modern-day prince charming spirit her away for a month to his Scottish castle. There she can take refuge from her overbearing family and finally figure out what she really wants. But the more Katie sees of Graham McLeod, the harder it's getting to keep their arrangement strictly business....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Some Like It Scot to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but I would probably have liked it better.


    What aspect of Chloe Lynn’s performance would you have changed?

    She has a very pleasant voice and a slight Scottish accent. Unfortunately there aren't individual characters. She as the same accent no matter who is speaking....male/female, American/Scott. There were a few times that I lost who was speaking.

    But it's not bad enough not to listen to. I do plan to pick up the others as well. It wasn't bad I just find it easier to listen to if character voices are established then I don't loose my place.


    Any additional comments?

    I did love the story. Here you had a Scottish hunk who was essentially a book nerd/professor type person who had to get married or loose his place as laird. The story developed rather nicely. I'll pick up the next one.

    Dark, powerful, sexy Kane. He has many names, but in truth he is Robin Goodfellow, the one-time favored son of Oberon, King of Faery. For centuries he's worked his magic, seducing and pleasuring women as befits his puca nature. But Kane made one big mistake - punishing his brother for a crime he did not commit. Oh yeah, he also left Dr. Janelle Corrington after the most amazing night of her life. Their lovemaking was brief, intense...and a one-night stand.

    What was most disappointing about Natale Stenzel’s story?

    The beginning of it was just too far out there. I couldn't continue. I only made it through chapter 1 and went to another book. It starts with a doctor in front of some council of druids or fae born I'm not even clear on that part. But basically chick reported this Druid or they kept calling him a pooka whatever that is. She wanted him in trouble because he slept with her and then left and didn't tell her goodbye or call her.

    She has such hostility towards him you would think he murdered her best friend. She keeps refusing and the council tells her she has to. His brother volunteers to watch him but she goes off on that because apparently the pooka druid did something to his brother.

    Like I said, it was just too much. Way to unbelievable. It didn't peak my interest and I don't think I could have listened to her for very long. Had the story peaked my interest I would probably have listened longer but there wasn't anything there I wanted to hear.


    What didn’t you like about Roni Gallimore’s performance?

    narrator was terrible. It sounded like she was in an empty room and too close to the microphone. She had some inflection but all characters were pretty much the same. It was very hard to listen to it.


    Any additional comments?

    best part was I only paid 3.95 so not out too much.

    The narrator did an excellent job on this one. She had all the emotions in her voice when needed and this story ran the gambit. The narrator would have made this book worth the read even if the story wasn't as good but it was.


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

    It took me a little bit to get into the book because it's essentially two stories told simultaneously. This book has it all. It's a tragic love story, evil villains, vampires, romance and a happy ending. I can't wait for the next book. I will definitely pick it up.


    Any additional comments?

    I laughed, I cried, I rolled my eyes. By the time I was half way through the book I couldn't put it down. Great story.

    What was most disappointing about Charlaine Harris’s story?

    It wasn't the story at all. This book is only one or two lines devoted to every character from the entire series that didn't have an ending in the final book. It is needed to complete the series but for $6 just the paperback book would have been better.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from After Dead?

    There weren't any scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    I think it would be better read than listened to as a book. I had to listen to it a couple of times because I missed some of the folks. It was only one or two sentences per character and sometimes I couldn't place the character before we were on the next one.

    It is needed for the series completion but since it is so short and the structure of the book I think it would be better to read it. However, the kindle version costs more than the audible book here.

    It was worth it just for Dianthaa, Bubba, & Eric's stories. I didn't care for Pam's, it was hard to follow and it felt wrong.

    Bubba's story was about when he was captured and put on the cross by the Mississippi vampires. Dianthaa's book you got a glimpse of a future Sookie and Sam. Eric's alone I would have bought the book for. It was 201 years after he left.

    For the most part, the various authors did a great job taking the existing characters and giving a small story from their perspective. It's a good addition to the Stackhouse series.

    If Shades of Grey was too much for you then stay away from these. They are a shortened version without the drama. Same type of melt the ink of the pages sex scenes.

    It's a good story as well. You have a co-ed looking for her birth father only to find he's the head of the Russian mob. The love interest is her fathers right hand man who was a teen on the streets when found and taken in by her father.

    I love Kresley Cole's series Immortals After Dark....this is nothing like that series. I did like the book although it's short and the next book i a continuation of the story.

    Yes I went ahead and bought the other two to see what happens.
