    Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

    What did you love best about Simple Perfection?

    The book in general is amazing. The storyline is very emotional and draws you in pretty quickly with the well-developed characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Della. She amazed me with what all she's had to endure but yet she still fights for herself.


    What does Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    EVERYTHING! These two work great together! I'm especially obsessed with Sebastian York's narration. I've actually bought books just because he has narrated them. Elizabeth Louise did a great job with her accent. It was believable.


    If you could take any character from Simple Perfection out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Do I have to choose just one? I would have to choose Grant. Yes, I know this isn't his book but I've slowly come to love his character.

    She is only nineteen. She is his new stepfather’s daughter. She is still nave and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother. But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

    Where does Fallen Too Far rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's about a 6 or 7 on a scale from 1-10


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love anything written by Abbi Glines. This particular book had well developed characters that I was able to connect with easily.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jennifer Bronstein?

    I would but I would not just seek her out as I do with a few other narrators I've come to enjoy. Her performance of a southern accent was a little unbelievable. I'm from the south and yes, I admit I have an accent (a strong one) but we (southerners) don't talk like they did back in the "Gone with the Wind"days haha!


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

    The ending is very emotional.

    Can he make her fall in love with him…again? When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death's devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her. But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him. When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other's destiny. It's time for Pagan's soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death's side or if she wants the mate created just for her. Dank didn't think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged.

    Oh. My. Goodness.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall plot was pretty awesome. It gave a great ending to an already great story!


    What about Ashley Litz’s performance did you like?

    Her overall performance was really good! I usually don't like for a female to portray a male part but she did it beautifully. I will definitely listen to more books if she is narrating.

    Owning a strip club isn't the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine-year-old Cain is starting to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict "no sleeping with the staff" rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain's self-control…and it's been a long time since any woman has done that.

    The overall plot was amazing. The story flowed pretty well and the characters were well-developed.

    The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid.

    Yes, I would definitely listen to BEAUTIFUL DISASTER again. I've had this book in my kindle library and I fell in love with it the first time I read it. Now listening to it has brought it all back to life for me.


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

    I'm like that with any book, listening or reading. I hate having to stop in the middle so yes, this is a book I wanted to devour in one sitting.

    My future was about to be completely thrown off track because Della Sloane was under my skin, and I had to have her. I couldn’t ignore it anymore . . . I’d gotten close enough to her to see deeper. Della Sloane is not your average girl. Yearning to break free of her dark and sheltered past and the memories of the illness that claimed her mother, Della plans a solo road trip to experience real life on her own terms.

    The storyline was awesome and the characters had a lot of depth to them. I was enamored immediately.

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

    I got very emotional throughout the book because of Della's background.
