  • The Cowboy Takes a Bride

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 57 mins)
    • By Lori Wilde
    • Narrated By C. J. Critt
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Ex-champion bull-rider-turned-cutting-horse-cowboy Joe Daniels isn't quite sure how he ended up sleeping in a horse trough wearing nothing but his Stetson and cowboy boots. But now he's wide awake, and a citified woman is glaring down at him. His goal? Get rid of her ASAP. The obstacle? Fighting the attraction he feels toward the blond-haired filly with the big, vulnerable eyes. When out-of-work wedding planner Mariah Callahan learns that her estranged father has left her a rundown ranch in Jubilee, she has no choice but to accept it.

    "Should have been a short story."
    Would you try another book from Lori Wilde and/or C. J. Critt?

    I like C. J. Critt's interpretation of the book, and her unusual voice, but I don't think I will ever listen to another book by Lori Wilde. I would be afraid the book was filled with boring, repeated fluff.

    What was most disappointing about Lori Wilde’s story?

    This plot was so thin it could have been a short story, not even long enough for a novella. If I was reading this book, I would have skipped many parts of it. I am starting to not like the main characters because of their constant dithering about their attraction to each(I haven't finished listening yet, but I am stubborn and will finish because I paid for it). I am ready to scream at Mariah, "Joe is not like your father, he is successful, has money, is settled down, etc." The author keeps restating all of their doubts about each other and uses that as the tension in the book. I should have kept track of how many times she has thought the same thing. Boring! If Ms. Wilde needed to lengthen the story, why not do a better longer flashback about Mariah's time in Chicago. Maybe then she would be more fleshed out and I might have some more sympathy for her.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    After 2/3 of the book, I would say the opening, hungover cowboy was my favorite scene.

    Did The Cowboy Takes a Bride inspire you to do anything?

    I will keep to my original plan of listening to mysteries and thrillers from Audible, and READING the romances on my iPad, iPhone. That way, I can skip any of the overly sappy thoughts and sentiments, especially if they are repeated ad nauseum.

    Any additional comments?

    I think I would have really liked this book if it was a short story.

  • Executive Privilege

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By Phillip Margolin
    • Narrated By Jonathan Davis

    When private detective Dana Cutler is hired by an attorney with powerful political connections, the assignment seems simple enough: follow a pretty college student named Charlotte Walsh and report on where she goes and whom she sees. But then the unexpected happens.

    Lu says: "Entertaining"
    "New Author I am Following"
    Where does Executive Privilege rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is just the kind of book I like to hear while driving or walking my dogs. It is full of great characters that you want to still follow after the book ends. I think Margolin will rank above Harlan Coban but below Baldacci in my favorite listens.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot is full of turns and twists and had me wearing my iPod around the house after I was done driving or walking. I couldn't wait to find out what happened. I switched to listening to Audible downloads on an iPad for this very reason. I don't have to sit in my car listening to the CD player and I can listen while walking.

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

    I can't remember how many of Jonathan Davis performances I have heard. He is perfect for the thriller genre. His female characters don't bother me like some other readers.
