    In the park, the coffee shops, and the playgrounds of Park Slope, four women's lives collide one long, hot Brooklyn summer. From the perennially hot author and columnist Amy Sohn comes a smart, sexy, satirical peek into the bedrooms and hearts of Prospect Park West.

    Overall

    After getting about an hour into this audiobook, I got fed up to the constant portrayal of negative stereotypes of African Americans in the story. Maybe be author was trying to show the perspective of upper class White Americans by doing this but I did not feel that it added anything to the story. At one point one of the character described a group of Black children as animals, this came after someone was robbed by a Black man and another was wrongfully accused of pick pocketing. I just couldn't take anymore. Even if you aren't offended by the racial references, you will soon tire of the constant name dropping of Hollywood stars that reads more like one of those magazines near the grocery store checkout counter.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS BOOK!

  • Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Story

    I love Molly Harper and the narrator Amanda Ronconi. I have listened to all of the books that are available by this author and she does not disappoint. This is more chick lit than blood lust, so if you are looking for a loads of action and violence, this isn't it. It is a good tale of the main character Jane. She is hilarious with her witty and dry sense of humor. As you follow this character you come to love her quirks and the personalities of the other characters even more. I hated for the series to come to an end.

    New York Times best-selling author Richelle Mead takes readers back to the Otherworld, an embattled realm mystically entwined with our world--and ruled by one woman's dangerous choice. Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham is the best at banishing entities trespassing in the mortal realm. But as the Thorn Land's queen, she's fast running out of ways to end the brutal war devastating her kingdom. Her only hope: the Iron Crown, a legendary object even the most powerful gentry fear.

    Story

    I discovered this series after listening to the Succubus books. I didn't like the narrator of this series at first but I think she got better after the first book and started to grow on me. The story, had me totally engrossed. Richelle Mead is a wonderful storyteller. Eugenie had me on an emotional roller coaster. One minute I love her, the next I hate her. She quite possibly has the worst judgement ever when it comes to men but I couldn't stop listening. By now, I have fallen in love with Dorian and his sense of humor. I haven't liked Kiyo since book one and I can't wait to see what Eugenie decides to do about the mess she has gotten herself into.

    After a heated encounter inside a London hotel room - where he was pursued by three very different women - Gideon finds himself living in a world where there's no one to trust.

    April says: "A Sequal at its best!"
    "Anticipating the next book in the series..."
    Overall

    I listened to Sleeping with Strangers and Waking with Enemies consecutively. I must say that I loved these first two books of the series. The story was very well written and Dickey has left enough mystery to the the main character, Gideon, to make you eager to learn more in another installment. The narrator did a great job and his tone was just right for the dark subject matter. The sex scenes in the story were very hot and though they may not appeal to men, I think women will dig them and find Gideon super dangerously sexy. I was so caught up in the story that I was sad when it ended and equally chomping at the bit for the next installment.

    Linda Lael Miller's best-selling contemporary romance novels are always a treat. Without a doubt the sexiest of her McKettrick series, McKettrick's Heart introduces a bold new love interest for handsome ladies' man Keegan McKettrick. Publishers Weekly enthuses over "the complex, conflicting dynamics [and] intense romance" in this sultry tale of smoldering passion.

    Deborah says: "Not a favorite"
    "Good story"
    Overall

    I liked this Audiobook, as I have enjoyed others in the McKettrick series. They are enthralling and if you listen to them in your car, you won't want to turn it off to get out. The only thing that I didn't like was that the only African American characters in the entire series it seems, are a maid and a chauffeur. We have a come a long way past servitude.

    Divorced mom Anna is too busy to reenter the world of dating, no matter how expertly she's wooed. Grace has three daughters and the perfect husband, but she's obsessed with her weight. Juliet wants to make partner at her firm while her husband stays home with their twins, but she's finding more than work to occupy her. When Chloe gives birth, her husband seems indifferent to parenting. Mommy Tracked illuminates four friends, their intertwining lives, and their joys and mistakes along the way.

    Amber says: "Gaskell's Best Yet..."
    "Good listen"
    Overall

    This audio book was really a good listen. The story was captivating and the author did a good job developing the characters. The narrator did a good job with the voices. I actually listened to this one twice.
