    The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event - but in reality, things are far from perfect. While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling.

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

    Yes, I love how the author captures everyone in each character life. It puts you into the story and makes you understand everything.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Margo and Anne. Margo for being a strong independent women and single parent, I loved how the author created her character and made you understand her life, feelings and emotions.

    Anne - In her generation, it makes you understand why you will give your husband a 2nd chance, if though I won't have accepted my husband back. The strong feelings made me feel real inside of me - the emotions were so strong in the book.

    We can't forget Douglas - I love this man!! He's every women's dream husband.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    Therese did an excellent job in each character.


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

    Yes, I felt the emotions in Anne's feelings against her husband Jim and his ex-wife.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope they will make a another book - I would like to know what happens to Douglas and Margo and the rest of the siblings especially Nick.

    A movie would be great!

    For 14 months Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free, and it was time for his reward - full membership in the club along with a party to celebrate. That was when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended, he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

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

    HARDCORE BIKER STORY!


    What other book might you compare Silver Bastard to and why?

    The Reapers, it's a kick-off from their story.


    What does Allyson Ryan and Johnathan McClain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They were good together. They got into the characters.

    Twenty years as an army brat, and Ember Howard knew, too. The soldiers at the door meant her dad was never coming home. What she didn't know was how she would find the strength to singlehandedly care for her crumbling family when her mom falls apart. Then Josh Walker enters her life. Hockey star, her new next door neighbor, and not to mention he has the most delicious hands that insist on saving her over and over again.

    What made the experience of listening to Full Measures the most enjoyable?

    If you are in the mood for emotional story, you MUST listen to this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    December was my favorite, I understood her feelings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The beginning of the story, how the author got into the pain they the entire family was going through it was very touching. I loved the end, no cliffhanger.


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

    It's hard to say, I don't want to be a spoiler alert!

    Emily has the life every woman dreams of. But when Louis mysteriously starts pushing Emily away, becoming distant and secretive, she is forced to search for the truth among the lies, scandal, and heartbreak of his past that threaten to shatter her world. What she finds out will test the strength of her love and her vows to the man of her dreams. Can Emily and Louis rewind far enough back to a time when life was simpler and love was all they needed?

    YES!!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK 2!!!
    From the beginning to the end, I couldn't stop listening to the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tali Alexander did an amazing job on capturing every detail on Emily side, too bad we didn't get to see more of Louis side.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Leigh and Sebastian Fields – was your favorite?

    Yes, almost to the end, the emotions were so high, especially Emily's dream (boy it got me). I hope in the 2nd book, there isn't anymore drama with Emily and Louis love story. The 2nd book should continue with Sara, I loved her character.


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

    I didn't find anything wrong with the narrator's performance, they both did an amazing job.


    Any additional comments?

    This will be a good movie!!!

    When Sierra's father died, he left her in charge of the family business. At the age of 28, Sierra Adams became CEO of Adams Advertising & Design, one of the top 10 advertising agencies in the world. Her work was her life. She lived and breathed it every day, leaving little time for play. Having once been in a relationship that completely destroyed her, Sierra vowed to use men for one thing only: SEX. No strings, no problems, and most importantly, no heartache.

    It was very entertaining, funny and sweet. It was predictable but I love it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love Sierra and her friends. They kept the story going. Loved the Housekeeper!!


    What about Emma Woodbine and Brian Pallino ’s performance did you like?

    Emma did a good part on Sierra's voice, but Cameron's voice not too good. She made him sound kind of gay, she needs to work on her man voice. Brian, was okay on the women's voice and was perfect for Cameron.


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

    I loved how Sierra stood up to the Board of Directors and fought with her Ex - it was perfect!


    Any additional comments?

    I think this would be a perfect movie, I can see Emma Stone play the part of Sierra. I can see Josh Duhamel or Channing Tatum play the part of Cameron.

    Very high... Not judging any one on this story...
    I felt sorry for Caden, Eden and Ever. Caden for trying to hang on to be loyal. Eden for missing her twin sister. And Ever, so young to be in a comma.

    The sex scene was so amazing. I can visualize everything in the sex the scene.


    What other book might you compare After Forever to and why?

    This story line reminded me of one of Marie Force books - Treading Water.

    They were perfect! I need to follow more of their stories together!

    My cock has an appetite. A huge and very particular appetite: blond, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although that's a story for another day.) As a high-profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online. My rules are simple: one dinner. One night. No repeats. This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less. At least it was until Alyssa...

    Cassie Taylor was just another acting student with big dreams at her prestigious performing arts college... then she met Ethan Holt. She was the good girl actress. He was the bad boy on campus. But one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing on stage, Cassie and Ethan's epic romance seemed destined. Until it ended in tragedy when he shattered her heart.

    Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other.... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harlow, I love strong independent characters.


    Which character – as performed by Sebastian York and Shayna Thibodeaux – was your favorite?

    As always Sebastian was perfect! At first, I was dissappointed you didn't get Grace Grant, but Shayna is good too! Shayna did a good job and did pulled off her Australian voice.


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

    I loved the scene when Harlow went to find Finn at the docks. I really felt her emotion and how Finn just ignored her feelings.

    When Harlow was lying with her mom and told her trouble about Finn.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to learn more about Finn's brothers and more about his TV program. I think that can be a juicy story. But, Harlow and Finn must stay together, the are so cute together!

    I hope Olie and Lola hook up!!!

Refusing to answer to "Jane Doe" for another day, the woman renames herself "Water" for the tiny, hidden marking on her body - the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge....
