    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

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

    Yes!!! The performance was excellent - I vision everything!


    What other book might you compare The Longest Ride to and why?

    I'm thinking the Notebook, how it took you back in time. But, the storyline is different.


    What does Ron McLarty and January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They brought the story to life!!


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

    Ruth - I would like to learn more of her history. Trying to adopt to the new culture living in the US.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the fact, their were 2 stories and how they were combined together at the end. Beware - you will cry in this book, but don't we always with Nicholas Sparks books.

    Ever, I don't know who I am anymore. I'm a castaway. Lost. Drowning. I love you. That's the only true thing I know, and it's all I have to hold on to. I love you. I'll love you forever. Until the day I die, and I'll love you in whatever world comes after this one. I love you so much, Ever. I miss you. Dear Jesus, I miss you. Come back to me. For forever, and after forever, Caden.

    Where does After Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Piper Goodeve and Gabriel Vaughan – was your favorite?

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


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

    Yes.

    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.

    If you could sum up Dirty Rowdy Thing in three words, what would they be?

    Hot, Sexy and Entertaining!


    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....

    There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything After... Life will never be the same. #Hessa... Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way. But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.

    I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Collin Black, and I’m the future CEO of Black Enterprises. At 22 years old, I'm living the American dream, or at least my version of it. I'm rich, fit, sexy, and no matter where I go, women are always throwing themselves at me. I love to party, and when I do, it can sometimes lead to trouble. Women. What can I say? One woman broke my heart which led me to close myself off so it could never happen again. I’ve become one of New York's most eligible bachelors and bad boy.

    I cried when Denny died and saying goodbye to Jacob.

    The ending wasn't good. There wasn't an epilogue.
