    Evie doesn't open her eyes so she can't see him, but she can smell him. He thickens the air she breathes, choking her with his scent... his aroma. She shivers. She has to resist. If she's not strong, then she will be relegated to the same fate as this predator whose sickness infects her even now. But now, she craves him and he knows that; he has been counting on her need to end the gnawing pain. How he would savor her surrender. She's alive, but how much longer will it take until she begs him not to be?

    I just have to say that you get a little tired of the main character seeming weak and depressed. But I had to keep remind myself that shes only 18. Russell's voice is the one I am most disappointed in because I am country and I don't feel like she does a good job at his voice, but I guess it's hard. Still good story. I've listened to all the books. My favorite books series yet.

    After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.

    I am becoming fond of these books. It's getting ready to become more complex. They're so different. It's interesting. I can't really describe them. You would have to listen for yourself.

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Kate Russell?

    I would from Kate Russell but probably not from Kristen Ashley


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Nothing


    Have you listened to any of Kate Russell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not sure


    Any additional comments?

    This book had a lot of fluff. At first I thought this book was witty and funny. Then, it just got annoying. There were so many scenes that I was like "Hurry up already." I also thought there would be more sex scenes. I'm not looking for porn or anything but, given the title, I expected more. These scenes were nothing like the other author's that I have read like Suzanne Wright. I wasn't overly impressed. The book could have been about 5 hours less had she left out many of the redundant details and conversations. Also, the main character can eat frozen Twix bars and cookie dough everyday and still manage to be "hot" while sitting at her computer desk all day. Not a realistic female in my opinion. I just felt like so many of the details became quirks that just annoyed me. I doubt I'll read anything else Kristen Ashley because, if she fluffs up the other books like this one, I can't handle it.

    Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse - her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate, no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy.

    Things are about to heat up.… Brandi Vaughn wishes she could stand out. She’d do anything to get out from behind the shadow of her socialite family - which now includes Dani, her half sister, recently discovered to be the most powerful vampire known to their kind.

    But Brandi is more extraordinary than anyone realizes. The fiery young vamp has a secret elemental power - an inner flame that she must keep under control so as not to reveal herself to the dangerous rogue vampire targeting exceptional talents like hers.

    Any additional comments?

    This book has a great ending. I love how the storyline has developed and is changing. It's one of those book series that moves from developing one character's story to developing another character's story. I'm not sure if that makes sense. Like this book is about a particular character, her life, her development of a romantic relationship. The next book will be about developing another one of the characters.

Meg's Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard - a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job.

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

    Yes but it would depend on the friend. This book has a very different, yet, interesting story line. I was pleasantly surprised.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the characters. It was different and suspenseful. The take on shifters and things are different. It is an alternate lifetime/universe thing. Like, not really the United States... it's different. That's all I can say.


    Which character – as performed by Alexandra Harris – was your favorite?

    Simon.


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

    The ending.


    Any additional comments?

    I can see people either loving or hating this book. But I felt very pleasantly surprised and will be glad to see what happens next.

    College is supposed to be a time of discovery, but Danielle Vaughn never imagined it would be like this: Heightened senses, supernatural powers, and a sudden craving for human blood. Dani is a demi-vamp, the daughter of a human psychic and a vampire noble, a living secret kept hidden for 21 years. As Dani’s heritage manifests itself, her thirst for blood is matched only by her hunger for Chase Diedrick.

    Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness.... Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she's ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel. Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn? From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

    Yep. The story and characters are great. The narrator takes a little getting used to but she truly brings life to the characters.


    What other book might you compare Unborn to and why?

    None yet. It's in a league of its own for now.

    This is another series I am looking forward to. I follow Amber Natusch on Facebook and she seems very passionate about her stories and what other people think about them. This book is very well written with good word usage and syntax. I loved the characters. Especially Oz and Ivy.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Any additional comments?

    I liked Tina Fey's open honesty about everything. However, I'm not a super-huge movie/television person. She talked about many people in Hollywood that I had no clue about and I felt very lost at times. I like that Tina Fey is not afraid to be herself. She points out her flaws but, it las though she knows they are what make up who she is. I liked Tina Fey. The book is alright. I probably wouldn't listen again.

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

    There were many because I work in the healthcare field and I was amazed at the treatment of blacks. I was amazed at the primitive ways that cancer used to be treated.


    Any additional comments?

    This story changes you. It gives you more knowledge and understanding of humans and science. It has a good ending. I'm glad the author had to re-write the ending. There were dry parts because the author gets very sciencey. However, this book was truly awesome. I cried during some parts. Other parts my mouth was on the floor and I was saying "Oh my gosh." The author is very insightful. This is many years of work for her and it is beautifully crafted and well put-together. I think it's credit worthy and it's definitely worth a read. I couldn't stop listening.
