    Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

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

    i am glad I did not waste a credit for this book or I would have returned it. the first 5 hours are spent with graphic descriptions of mutli partner sexual encounters. not family friendly and would have liked the warning as I tend to listen to books while driving in the car with my children. only the last 2 hours had any real story line to them. buyer be warned


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    added a warning of content


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

    Blake Harrison: Rich, titled, and charming…and in need of a wife by Wednesday. Blake turns to Sam Elliot, who isn’t the businessman he expected. Instead, Blake is faced with Samantha Elliot, beautiful and feisty with a voice men call 1-900 numbers to hear. Samantha Elliot: Owner of matchmaking firm Alliance and not on the marital menu…that is, until Blake offers her ten million dollars for a one-year contract. And there’s nothing indecent about this proposal. The money will really help with her family’s medical bills. All Samantha will need to do is keep her attraction to her new husband to herself and avoid his bed.

    Perfect beach book - something to read on a day off when you just want to relax and not really think about to much - just the idea of happily ever after...

    In the near future, disease will be a condition of the past. Most genetic defects will be removed at birth; the remaining during infancy. Unfortunately, there will be a generation left behind. For members of that missed generation, small advances will be made. Through various programs, they will be taught to get along in the world despite their differences. They will be made active and contributing members of society. But they will never be normal.

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    What made the experience of listening to Room the most enjoyable?

    I could not stop listening to this book. Even my 12 yr. old daughter listened with me. The voice of a child reading the book as it was written from his perspective was perfect


    What other book might you compare Room to and why?

    None - this is a book unique in and of it's own.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the very end of the book where they learn to take it slowly - one new adventure at a time.


    If you could take any character from Room out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    it would be Jack's ma - her tenacity for survival above all else. She needs some good in her world.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful psychological study, sweet and endearing dispite the dark side back story.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dog's Purpose?

    without spoiling - the very end of the book - a dog's purpose and what he decides it is.


    If you could take any character from A Dog's Purpose out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would have to be Buddy - although impractical - for all his wisdom he has gained in 44 years.


    Any additional comments?

    Whether you are a dog lover or not - you will be after listening to this book. This is one of the most heart-felt and intelligent books I have ever listened to. And as I usually listen to books as I drive - one of the few that have no sections I prefer to not listen to with all my children in the car. Actually - I encouraged them to read the book for the life lessons it teaches in such a genuine way. LOVED the book.
