    Five teenagers from different parts of the country. Three girls. Two guys. Four straight. One gay. Some rich. Some poor. Some from great families. Some with no one at all. All living their lives as best they can, but all searching . . . for freedom, safety, community, family, love. What they don't expect, though, is all that can happen when those powerful little words "I love you" are said for all the wrong reasons.

    Adored for her sweeping Rocky Mountain Legacy series, Kristen Heitzmann inspires countless fans with her tales of Christian faith and romance. The search for a family secret drives Lance Michelli to the old villa once owned by his grandparents. But its present owner, Rese Barrett, is independent enough, and beautiful enough, to derail his efforts, distract his heart and stir his faith.

    Waitress Marjorie Ivarsson is the picture of naiveté. Raised by her grandmother, she'd rather go to bingo than go dancing. But when she's asked to be a bridesmaid in her friend Bronte's destination wedding, she finds herself venturing into new and exciting territory. The wedding is set on the billionaire groom's private island, and Marjorie is fascinated by all the new people she meets. Most fascinating of all is the man she saves from almost drowning in the blue waters of the island lagoon.

    I know why I was taken. How much does that change things? I cannot say. I still have a weakness for Jeremy - when he is Jeremy. But when he's Stonehart? Well, that's when all of my hatred comes back. I have to make myself detached, indifferent, and emotionally removed to make the proper decision on what to do next. Jeremy makes detachment hard. Stonehart makes it easy.

    What disappointed you about Unattainable?

    There was so much foul language that if you left out only one word, "Fuckin" the book would have been cut in half. Don't bother spending your time or money on this one


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something of Abbi Glines


    What three words best describe Tatiana Sokolov’s performance?

    It's the only thing that made this book worth finishing


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

    Too many to count

    What would have made Crave better?

    Would you be willing to try another book from Monica Murphy? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Justine Eyre and Will Damron ?

    YES, Will is fine but Justine's voice is like fingernails sliding down a chalkboard. Very rough & nasally.


    What character would you cut from Crave?

    None

    "Mom, get a life!" Her teenage daughter's words were daunting. True, struggling single mom Julia Jones hadn't had a date in over a decade, but she could still catch a man - if she needed to! So Julia, who claimed not to want a husband, found herself entangled in a fake romance. Ryan Shane was tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome. And he just so happened to need a no-strings date himself. Their plan was perfectly thought out. Until a conveniently staged good-night kiss turned into very inconvenient passion....

    A childhood accident left Emmaline vulnerable to disturbing fugue states that last minutes but feel like an eternity. The blackouts are unsettling but manageable... until she meets Johnny Dellasandro. The painter gained fame in the '70s for his debauched lifestyle and raunchy art films. His naked body achieved cult status, especially in Emm's mind - she's obsessed with the man, who's grown even sexier with age. Today he shuns the spotlight and Emm... until she falls into a fugue on his doorstep.
