    Dishonorably discharged, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin is down to his last ten bucks when he finally finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, a little-known and believed-to-be-fringe scientific research facility. When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

    Where does Born to Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say this is a book I will listen too again and again. I am sure I missed things with so many twists and turns.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Shane! he did not give up no matter what. Mac is a tough women to love she is a bit like a hedgehog, prickle until you can get her to open up and feel the soft underbelly.

    These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch. But…I’m lonely. I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone.

    What did you like best about Forever & Always? What did you like least?

    I loved the story. But the details were all over the place. Were they apart 4 years or 5 years. And on and on. It became too distracting and took away from the flow of the story...
    Not sure if I can listen to the next one even thou I want to know want happens...


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jasinda Wilder again?

    I have not notice this editing problem before so maybe...

    "Haunted by nightmares of a black dog, sick to death of my mind-numbing career and heart-numbing fiancé, I impulsively walked out of my life - and fell into Faerie. Terrified, fascinated, I discover I possess a power I can't control: my wishes come true. After an all-too-real attack by the animal from my dreams, I wake to find myself the captive of the seductive and ruthless fae lord Rogue. In return for my rescue, he demands an extravagant price - my firstborn child, which he intends to sire himself.…"

    Would you try another book from Jeffe Kennedy and/or Sasha Dunbrooke?

    Yes it was an interesting story, I just felt it was missing something... I could have used more understanding. Like what was the marking on Rouge's face why was it there?
    Did he really stay in the tent with the dragonfly girl?


    What was most disappointing about Jeffe Kennedy’s story?

    To many unanswered questions


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More romance....

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Everyone thinks A.J. Sutherland is crazy to buy a rogue stallion that no rider or trainer has been able to tame. But if anybody has the hustle to make something out of that hell-raiser, it’s her. She can’t do it alone, however, and goes after the great Devlin McCloud, an equestrian legend with a bad leg - and a worse attitude.

    Story
    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Facts were confusing. As a barn mom I was very confused were they show jumping? Or eventing? For a horse person it was very distracting the mixing of eventing and show jumping terms. Also who would spend all day working a horse???? I Love JR Ward other stories but this one was lacking facts.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing I thought the narration was great!

    "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."

    What made the experience of listening to Bared to You the most enjoyable?

    Very well written. Steamy without crossing lines I don't relate too.


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

    Sylvia Day I am not sure if she set out to top 50 Shades of Grey... But she did!If you like FSG you will love Bared to You.I feel that Bared to You is written better and overall a more developed story. Can't wait for the next one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    For me it was when Eva went to Crossfire's office the first time not knowing it was him she was going to see..


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

    Yes in fact I tried but, work gets in the way.And I will listen too again!

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades of Grey to be better than the print version?

    I loved Becca Battoe first version of the book. Ann was sweet and innocent as she should be.
    As my husband reminds me all the time " that is not a ten year old driving the car next to you , you are just getting older and can't tell kids ages anymore.
    I think she sounds young in the both versions. But I like the first better.
    Loose up the story is about a 20 something and should sound like one in the audible version.


    Which character – as performed by Becca Battoe – was your favorite?

    Anna, but she did a good job with all of them.
