    Watching a loved one immersed in an intense battle with alcohol and drug abuse may be the most difficult, complex and harrowing experience you'll ever have. This book offers a message of hope to families and friends, giving practical solutions so they can help anyone struggling with addiction to begin the road to recovery.

    What made the experience of listening to Why Don't They Just Quit? the most enjoyable?

    This book offers practical help for the addict and the families involved with this deadly disease. The solutions and advice are much more meaningful and useful coming from an author who has remained in recovery himself for 30 years. If you're struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, the power to change is just a listen away.

At the same time, a new director comes to power in the Underworld, who asks for a test of Josh's loyalty by delivering this very woman to him. Melanie Worthington is back among the living, after reeling from the suicide of a close friend.

    What made the experience of listening to Underworld Lover the most enjoyable?

    The feeling of being right there in the middle of the story. I could feel the characters along with their struggles and triumphs. J.D. Hart did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life for me.


    What other book might you compare Underworld Lover to and why?

    I had listened to "Heavenly Lover" also written by Sharon Hamilton." Underworld Lover" is the sequel and an excellent follow through of a story that proves even in the Underworld a mortal life of love is worth ten immortal lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene where Beau the rocker dude was being coxed into taking his own life to be eligible for a dark angel in the underworld.


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

    I would love to read and listen to more paranormal books by Sharon Hamilton. Yes, with this book I felt the full range of emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming Sharon Hamilton! We share a common belief that love is the most powerful force in the universe.

    Love is eternal.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heavenly Lover?

    When Father decides he loves Clair enough to let her become human again and enjoy the passion and love of a human existence.


    What does J.D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    J.D. Hart brought the story to life in a very believable and passionate way. His voice is very pleasant to listen to and he does awesome character voices. I even like the way he does female voices.


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

    This story is very emotional. It made me cry to think that humans can get so lost they don't want to live anymore. It delighted me that an angel would rather have a human existence and experience all of the wonderment of life.


    Any additional comments?

    Sharon Hamilton is an author who obviously knows and understands the true meaning of life and love with all it's hardships and glory. I want to hear much more from her.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cooper was a SEAL that I can easily identify with. He was easy going, strong and he loved not only his woman but his dog.


    Have you listened to any of J. D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've heard Mr. Hart narrate other books. He does outstanding work. I do prefer his storytelling of romance. I really prefer his character as the narrator and hearing the story from his perpespective. His masculine voice can be strong at times and as smooth as butter at other times. He does great character voices with accents.


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

    I usually listen to audio books at night for about two hours. So, I enjoyed this one in about a week at night and in my car on the way home from work.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to hear more from Sharon Hamilton and J.D. Hart.
