    Charismatic bar owner Rowdy Yates has his eye on Avery Mullins, the gorgeous waitress he's just hired. When she rebuffs his advances, Rowdy starts to suspect something in Avery's past is making her distant. He's determined to uncover her secret, while she's intent on ignoring her attraction to him. But when her past comes calling, Avery seeks safety in Rowdy's passionate embrace.

    What did you like best about Getting Rowdy? What did you like least?

    We, meaning Ms. Foster's fans, have been waiting a long time for Rowdy's story and I was very excited to see it finally appear. So-o-o-o disappointed. With all of the other stories there was so much more to keep one on the edge of their seat rather it be suspense, drama, chemistry between characters, or just waiting to see what happens next.

    This was so predictable and yet unpredictable. Unpredictable because I kept waiting for the big drama, the "hold your breath" suspense and it never materialized.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I think that Rowdy and Avery's story was ok but I wouldn't say interesting.


    What three words best describe Jim Frangione’s performance?

    Monotone, inflection-less, drab


    Did Getting Rowdy inspire you to do anything?

    I was hoping that with the introduction of a new character, i.e., Canon, that I would be looking forward to either his or Dash's story, but I'm not sure now.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so excited about this story that I kept looking at Lori Foster's website to see when "Getting Rowdy" would be coming out; I won't be doing that with the next books in this series and it is my hope that another male narrator, one more suited to changing his tones and inflection when appropriate would be chosen.

    Sorry, Ms. Foster, this one just didn't do it for me. Also I would hope that whoever does the pairing of narrator to book would take into consideration the reputation of the author and her work before choosing a narrator that cannot enhance the dramatization of the story.

    Kate Hart and Dominic Knight's volatile love affair continues in the last book in the All or Nothing trilogy from C.C. Gibbs. Being tied down to just one woman was the last thing Dominic wanted. But from the moment he laid eyes on Kate, he couldn't deny his overwhelming desire for her or his need to possess her.

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

    I would recommend this book to a friend that is interested in lots of hot sex, can withstand the ups and downs of life and rolling from one extreme feeling to the next, i.e., frustration, sadness, elations, and sighing moments.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The HEA ending.


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

    Only in this series & I thought she did a great job; hope to hear more from her.


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

    I had many extreme reactions during this entire series. I did cry, laugh and stomp & swear, & sigh and squirm.


    Any additional comments?

    This series could have used a little more drama or suspense, but overall it was/is a keeper. I enjoyed this author and narrator, both of which I had not previously experienced.

    Brilliant. Wealthy. Powerful. Dominic Knight is one of the hottest tech developers in the world - and the most demanding lover Kate Hart has ever known. Whether in the boardroom or the bedroom, he is always in charge. But there is one thing he cannot control: Kate's fiery heart... As a master in her field, talented Kate surpassed Dominic's wildest expectations. As a woman of uncommon intelligence and beauty, she unlocked something deep within him.

    If you could sum up All He Needs in three words, what would they be?

    Extreme feelings evoked.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All He Needs?

    Can't say without giving it away.


    Which character – as performed by Elena Wolfe – was your favorite?

    Katherine & Dominic


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

    I did have extreme reactions; I laughed, cried, got frustrated and wanted to let my inner child stomp her feet & scream obscenities to Dominic and hurl insults to Kate for "giving-in".


    Any additional comments?

    With all of that being said above, I very much enjoyed this series and I'm glad there were a few twists thrown in in this book. The plot of this entire series is a bit weak but not so much so as to stop me from listening and moving on to the next book.

    Would you listen to All He Wants again? Why?

    NO. I enjoyed this book and the entire series, however, despite not wanting to stop listening and wanting to move on to the next book to "see what happens" the storyline was a bit predictable and there have only been a couple of books out of hundreds of audible books that I've listened to more than once. (I don't like watching movies I've previously seen either).


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept me wanting to find out what was next for Katherine & Dominic.


    What does Elena Wolfe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought she was a great performer. I never felt like she was just "reading" the story but I found myself immersed in it in a way only a good performer can do. I also liked her voice for Dominic. At first I thought it was not masculine enough, but quickly got used to it.


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

    Not sure


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. In other reviews there were negative comments regarding Kate's immaturity. Come on folks, she's 22 in this series. Weren't we all a bit immature at that age. Also, there was 10 years difference between she and Dominic and the lack of worldliness was emphasized to contrast with Dominic's world class escapades, physical, mental & sexual. Yep, there were a couple of times I wanted to say "come one Kate - grow up", but if she had been "grown-up", sensible, mature, then there would not have been the stark contrast between H/H.

    Powerful and manipulative, Vasilije does as he pleases. A vampire beholden to no one, he takes what he desires, drinking deeply the pleasures this life has to offer. When one of his own is staked, Vasilije must travel to New Orleans to exact his revenge. There he meets Sasa, a beautiful woman who arouses him like no other has for centuries. Vasilije's need for vengeance is equaled only by his passion for her, but what he finds in his revenge is just the beginning....

    Story

    Let me first start off by saying that I really enjoyed the narrator. I think he could have done a better job expressing different emotions; the anger, etc. was a bit on the flat side, but he does have the right kind of deep, sexy voice for this type of performance. Hope he picks up his game in the following stories.

    I thought the story was pretty good. My main complaint was the lack of character development; granted we got to know Vasilije and his background better as the story progressed, however, even that was a bit on the weak side. And, Sasa, well there was nothing, except the history with her mother and that she was an empath. I would have liked to have gotten to know her better and get more of a sense of who she was other than her mother's keeper. Maybe we'll hear more about her in the future.

    Overall, I liked it enough to download the next in the series. Hope we get to know Saint better. Also, I virtually never (with the exception of 3 out of hundreds) give 5's, rarely give 4's, so for me 3's don't mean it was bad.

    I loved Jenna & Brock's story, not too different from all the other couples' stories, but great just the same. They, like all the breed and breed mates thus far and, I'm sure, those in future stories deserve happiness.

    The stories/books just keep getting better and better.

    Thanks Lara Adrian & Hilary Huber for taking us to a realm and reality that can jettison us into a space beyond our own world where we can wile away some of the monotony of our mundane lives & venture into the world of intrigue that is far beyond what everyday life can offer, even if only for the duration of this series. Who doesn't want an alpha male who is uber protective, gentle, kind, sensitive and holds his female in utmost regard above all else.

    I absolutely love this series and for the first time listening to a series I hoped that it just kept going, never ending…but, that said, this book #9 came to a too abrupt end. I was hoping, after having waited for Hunter & Corrine's story, that we'd get to be at least a few steps closer to an HEA ending, but alas, we don't know what's happening with them or with them & Nathan. Hoping that in future Books we'll get to find out; I really wanted to hear of Hunter & Corrine having an HEA. Call me a hopeless romantic, but they, of all people (Breed & Breed Mate) deserved it.

    All his life, Rand T’Ash has looked forward to meeting his HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough, now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds—and attracts—his wife… Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T’Ash’s shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, placing her at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T’Ash. But T’Ash refuses to accept her rejection and sees it as a challenge instead. They are HeartMates, but can T’Ash persuade his beloved to accept her destiny by his side?

    I agree with some of the reviews about NML's narration being stilted and seemingly unemotional but I must say that the voices and expressions of the various characters in this intriguing story are amazing, especially the female voices and drunken stuttering of Maggo (sp). As the story progressed NML's narration got better and in my estimation, the stiltedness was a description of who T'Ash was (is).

    I'm hoping that this story really is the beginning of a new & exciting series as this is a new author for me. RDO must have an amazing imagination and ability to not just write a PNR copy of the masters such as Donna Grant, J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, etc.

    I liked the story ok, but the narration was a bit difficult to get through. If I had not already been following this series and like Jessica Clare, I would not have struggled through. The male and female voices were exactly the same in some of the narration and too close to the same to enjoy the difference in others. The same narrator was used for all of the books but she just didn't work this time.

    Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional, and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic's concerned. They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all. Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.

    The storyline was a bit predictable after Nick and Emma see each other again, but RJ does an outstanding job of portraying feelings and sentiment. Claire Bocking's narration/performance, better put, gets more amazing with each story. If she is ever replaced as the performer of RJ's books it will be a shame and betrayal.

    I loved that Nick was soft, gentle, considerate and kind as are all of the New Zealand Rugby players as depicted by the author; not at all a "big-headed famous sports player, like a lot of american football players seem to be.

    Nonetheless, I really liked the story and could listen to the accent and the words Kiwi's use for different things. Please give us the rest of the series.

    I wasn't sure at first if this book actually deserved any kind of review but after giving some thought to it I realized that if I could save someone the time it takes to return it to Audible after spending precious dollars or credits on it then it was time well spent in writing the review.

    This book, in my opinion, has absolutely no redeeming qualities. I have read/listened to many MC books; most of which were raw, gritty, containing group sex, orgies, bad guys, worse guys, club whores, (well, you get the picture), but all had someone, most times, the H/H that had some heart, kindness and concern. The hero, and I use the term loosely, in this book was, simply put, an uncaring, heartless creep. Granted, I must admit, I did not finish the book as I didn't want to spend my time in doing so, but I just couldn't after listening to the 9 1/2 chapters and 4 hours and then going back and reading the reviews of those who did finish. I love a good hardcore MC story, but come on Ms. Begley. I'm not sure what you were trying to portray or say but I just don't get it. I get a "mean to the shy & different girl when she was a teen, vibe", yuck. This author is a definite "no go" any further for me.
