    Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich is a rollicking and poignant romantic comedy about a young widow who decides to get in shape...and winds up getting her groove back - and a whole lot more! Holly Brennan used food to comfort herself through her husband's illness and death. Now she's alone at age 32. And she weighs more than she ever has. When fate throws her in the path of Logan Montgomery, personal trainer to pro athletes, and he offers to train her, Holly concludes it must be a sign. Much as she dreads the thought of working out, Holly knows she needs to put on her big girl panties and see if she can sweat out some of her grief.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    If you could sum up Bared to You in three words, what would they be?

    Is he serious?


    What other book might you compare Bared to You to and why?

    The Crossfire series is like the non-bondage version of Fifty Shades of Grey... characters are twisted and need therapy but oh so good at...

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    No - three books of creepy male voices. Pass.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    What didn’t you like about Jill Redfield’s performance?

    The male voices. Unnecessary and completely took away from the characters. Hard to take them seriously.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Didn't read book one and quickly figured out that in order to get into Pulse you must start there. Apparently all the drama and character development happened in book one... I'm sure it was great and recommend readers start there and Pulse will make much more sense.

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    What aspect of Grace Grant’s performance would you have changed?

    The extreme and obnoxious dialect changes for each character. Overdone and irritating.

She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

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

    Narrator did great - managed to give each character their own personality without over doing it.


    Was Effortless worth the listening time?

    Kept hoping the story would pick up... not sure an entire book should have been dedicated to just this story line.

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    Great story! Found myself talking/yelling at the radio commuting to work... the main character was awful at being bad but it was a train wreck you just couldn't tear your eyes away from. Every wrong turn you knew it was just going to get worse and worse. The author did not disappoint! Great story!

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    What did you love best about Mystery Man?

    The writing was great! Adored the characters!! The author managed to create a lovable female lead who NEVER played the victim and even managed to find humor in drama.


    What about Kate Russell’s performance did you like?

    You could tell she enjoyed the characters and story line. Totally did them both justice and brought it all to life =) Thank you!! For not killing this great story!!


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

    Favorite scene in the book is when Gwen hears Hawks name for the first time. With everything going on around her she's stuck on his name... the author and narrator nailed this and I had to laugh out loud. Totally hooked from that point forward!!


    Any additional comments?

    You've got to read this one... it won't disappoint!
