    Engineering robots, and all non-living creatures, was easy for Virginia - not so much with people. So when her best friend dragged her to the company Halloween party, Virginia went kicking and screaming…well as much as her Playboy bunny costume allowed for any movement. But with her mask in place and her normal reserve as tiny as her costume, Dr. Farrell suddenly let loose. Wild and wanton, she fell into the muscular arms of the costumed and masked Bandit.

    Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he's your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy...among other things, and it won't happen again. Jules won't risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

    Dr. Ali Torveau knows just how fragile life can be - she sees death and tragedy every day in the trauma unit. Battling the dark forces of fate is her life's work and she doesn't want or need anything else, certainly nothing as transient as love. Plenty of women try to change her mind, but she never has any trouble saying no. Not until the day firefighter Beau Cross shows up in her ER and sets Ali’s carefully ordered world aflame.

    What disappointed you about Executive Seduction?

    I had to stop listening after 53 minutes. The story was not lacking, I really could not get over the narrator's robotic, monotone voice.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer Probst again?

    I have read and listened to JP many times, and this is the first bad review I have ever made about her.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    WHO TALKS LIKE THAT??? I thought the book was being read by a computer at one point.
    Ms. Probst should sue the narrator for killing her book!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Executive Seduction?

    Since I only listened to 53 minutes?........... I would have cut the last 52 of them!


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry Ms. Probst. If I were you I would ask to read your own stories from now on, or at least have a say in who performs them!

    When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of In Flight to be better than the print version?

    The narrator has done a wonderful job telling this story.


    What other book might you compare In Flight to and why?

    50 Shades...... with a better story!


    What about Elizabeth Powers’s performance did you like?

    Her ability to capture the author's feeling for the characters shows through.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    He's trying to keep this stewardess grounded...... to him!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to start the 2nd book.
    HURRY UP AUDIBLE AND GET TO THE THIRD ONE ON THE SHELF!!!!

    For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies, never her own - until now.... Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything. Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes.

    What disappointed you about Sweet Persuasion?

    The lack of spine of the main female character.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Maya Banks again?

    yes. This is the 1st book by MB that I have not enjoyed. I was actually more interested in the sub-story in this book. Can't wait to read it. (yes, I will buy the actual book and read it instead of listening)


    How could the performance have been better?

    I feel like the narrator tried too hard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sweet Persuasion?

    The feeding of food to each other. GRAB A FORK AND FEED YOURSELF!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I was actually more interested in the secondary story in this book. Can't wait to read it. (yes, I will buy the actual book and read it instead of listening if the narrator is the same as this book.)

    Sienna's dreams lie in California, but when she discovers her grandmother's Nashville home has been foreclosed, she has no other choice than to move back to Music City, where she comes face-to-face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she'd see again - and who now holds the deed to her grandma's estate. Millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe is just as surprised to find the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom. He still can't get the night Sienna spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as ever.

    What does Elizbeth Louise bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    her accents and voice changes are wonderful


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

    I giggled a few time!


    Any additional comments?

    I know that there must be more to their story. There are quite a few questions/concerns that have not been answered. So.... if there is another book in the series it's a great book worth the credit but if there isn't another, don't waste your time. I would put this on your wish list and wait and see!

    He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past - and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him - and us - forever.

    Yes, if it was discounted or free.
    I am not on the edge of my seat or scrambling to buy it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked all the Blue-Collar workers in the book. LOL They were the only down to earth believable people in the story.


    What aspect of Sofia Willingham’s performance would you have changed?

    She almost whispered too much! Kinda annoying.


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

    Possibly


    Any additional comments?

    I would not use a credit to get the 2nd book in the series. I may buy it if it was $5.99 or less, just to see what happens to Nikki and Damien.

A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....
