    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

    What would have made Deception better?

    I couldn't begin to tell you. I only listen to the first 5 chapters and found it so simplistic, annoying and pitiful I could not continue. I don't know which was worse, the narration with the really silly voices for males/females, the accent or the story line!!


    Has Deception turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but it has turned me off any other books by Amanda Quick!!


    What didn’t you like about Anne Flosnik’s performance?

    NOTHING!! NOT A THING. WILL KEEP HER NAME IN MIND SO AS TO NEVER BY ANYTHING NARRATED BY HER AGAIN. I guess to give her the benefit of the doubt I should say, that maybe the story itself had a lot to do with my dislike for the performance.


    What character would you cut from Deception?

    ALL??


    Any additional comments?

    What else can I say?! I normally enjoy any kind of book and I am not too finicky about the reader/narrator, but this book had nothing going for it. I could not get past the 5th chapter!!

    As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Kept hearing myself say: Yeah, got it....you said that already...heard that two seconds ago...alright already...Could not even get past half of the book because I was so fed up of the repetiveness (?) of it. It could have been told in 30 minutes, that's how much there was to the story. Nothing we haven't heard before. over and over and over and over!!!!


    What three words best describe Erik Bergmann???s voice?

    Narrator was just ok.


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

    annoyance. boredom, disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Doubt that I will buy book #23!!!

    Bewitching rock superstar Joley Drake can have any lover she wants. But when her life is threatened, her dangerously sexy bodyguard is the only man she needs. There's just one problem: his shadowy reputation as a secret Russian hit man may put Joley in even greater peril.

    Rebecca says: "This is Book 5 of the Drake Sisters Series"

    Horribly boring!!!

    Dark Descent tells the story of Joie Sanders, a bodyguard and Traian Trigovise, an ancient hunter, meeting after a battle in a deep cave filled with mystery and wonder. Set in the Carpathian Mountains, Joie, with her brother and sister go caving and come across the ancient warrior beset upon by several vampires. They have no choice but to throw their lot in with the hunter and do their best to escape with their lives from the underground labyrinth filled with ancient traps left behind by a powerful race.

    "it ended too soon!!"
    Overall

    This book was slightly different from the others but just as good. It's a shame it ended so quickly. I expected the story to go on and I am hoping that it will pick up in the next one.
