    An afternoon at the races - laced with champagne and women - is just another event for Ethan Cartwright, until very ordinary Daisy Donohue catches his eye. Daisy knows to keep her head down and stay invisible amongst the throngs of designer-clad socialites. But ruthless Ethan is intrigued by the drab assistant, and can't resist one passionate embrace! Daisy is devastated to be fired for a kiss - she needs her job! That's where Ethan comes in.

    Story

    the story was ok but not great. it was pretty unbelievable. the female narration was fine but when she did the Russian accent for the male lead it was just sooooo wrong. hes supposed to be a sexy male leading man instead he came across sounding like a sweet old russian man.. definitely doesnt go well with the hot and steamy love scenes it just made it seem weird.

    Eight months. That's how long it's been since Eliza last saw Gage, and they both feel as if they don't deserve one another's forgiveness. He screwed up. She walked away without looking back. They'll try and make up all the time they've lost with one another, that is, until they're facing the choices of either going their separate ways, or hanging on and fighting for dear life. The fights will be endless. The heartache will be real. The demons will return, and they won't back down without a fight.

    When twenty-two-year-old Jennifer Worth, from a comfortable middle-class upbringing, went to work as a midwife in the direst section of postwar London, she not only delivered hundreds of babies and touched many lives, she also became the neighborhood';s most vivid chronicler. Woven into the ongoing tales of her life in the East End are the true stories of the people Worth met who grew up in the dreaded workhouse, a Dickensian institution that limped on into the middle of the twentieth century.

    The first in a sexy new series by Katy Evans, New York Times best-selling author of the REAL series... This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name, though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

    I'm Rhett. I'm cocky because I can be. I've got it all: the looks, the money, the endurance. I'm the guy that every girl wants to be with, yet none of them have ever been able to tie me down. I don't do love. I don't do relationships. And I sure as hell will never do marriage. I'm all about the fast life and everything that entails. There's a different woman in my bed every week. My friends are jealous of me. My enemies envy me. Everyone wants my life. And everything in my life is absolutely perfect. At least, that's what everyone thinks.

    You can't change your DNA…even when it says you're a murderer. When Davy tests positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, aka "the kill gene," she loses everything. Once the perfect high school senior, she is uninvited from her prep school and abandoned by her friends and boyfriend. Even her parents are now afraid of her - although she's never hurt a fly. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone. Without any say in the matter, Davy is thrown into a special class for HTS carriers.

    If you could sum up Uninvited in three words, what would they be?

    Vanillasky. Hungergames. Hollocaust.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely the Male lead.


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

    I like how it is a realistic portrayal of what could actually happen the3 way that society Is going. We are repeating past mistakes just thinking that we are more intelligent about how we do it now.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The group /gang mentality society is quick to take on when faced with what they perceive as a threat.

    Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17-year-old girl getting ready to start her senior year of high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends don't realize the last two weeks of their summer are going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection; a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis Lupus, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate.

    Serafina Luca, straitlaced Manhattan professor of erotic literature, isn't one to blush at a few raunchy words, but her experience in the bedroom is hardly best seller material. She's not sure the passion in the books she teaches is possible in real life, let alone for her. But then she meets Nick Stellato.

    Rugby player Spencer Bailey is determined to win a spot on England's World Cup team. Caitlyn works for an international disaster relief organization and can handle the world's worst crises. Neither Caitlyn nor Spencer expects to fall hard for each other, and with rugby season starting and Caitlyn's visa about to expire, the timing seems perfect. But with their relationship deadline approaching, the old rules of the game seem less important than before... until past secrets surface, challenging everything they thought they knew about each other.

    Story

    I will never know if the story was any good as I couldnt get past the first 10 minutes of the worst narration I have ever heard (and I have 350+ audiobooks just in my audible library!).
    The normal narrations was terrible and what was worse is that she attempted accents (AND THEY WERE BAAAAAD!!) ...which is fine, not everyone can do a good accent but then she would change accents in the middle of a sentence and still the same person talking?? This happened quite a few times just in what I listened too! There was no way I could get through the whole book listening to that. Unfortunate because the summary seemed interesting (hence why I purchased it) but now I will never know if it was any good. DISAPPOINTING!!
