    While cleaning a jet for entrepreneur Seth Jansen, Alexa Randall finds the strangest items: his one-year-old twins! Seth needs a temporary nanny; Alexa needs time for a one-on-one business pitch. So she says yes to an intimate stay on a lush Florida island - and yes to the man whose passion makes her question the choices she's made. Living in luxury brings back memories of the world she left behind. The babies remind her of the family she once wanted. And the nights with Seth are…incomparable.

    Completely uneventful. So boring and predictable and dumb. It was the third book in a row I had started that was bad so I forced myself to finish. Very frustrating.

    The narration was horrible and painful. Drug out every sentence so that everything felt so dramatic, even the light moments. I feel as though I have heard this narrator before but not sure where. Maybe under a different name?? I didn't like it then either. Pleasant voice, just bad at narrating. Not only do I wish I had my money back but I wish I had my 5 hours and 43 minutes. I had heard it was good so I kept hanging on but I must have heard wrong because it wasn't. Very frustrating.

    This was really good. May be better than the first book. Lots of humor. Very clever. Romance, suspense, humor! Loved it.
    The narrator was unbelievable! So good.

    Story

    This does not sound like Samantha Young's writing. I could not even finish it. There was no intrigue. Could predict everything that was happening and was overly dramatic. Is it just me or does anyone else cringe when the writing is so corny? People don't converse like this.
    Unfortunately, the narrator was not good either. My ears hurt from the whole thing and I had to turn it off. Sorry.

    I loved "Sweet Thing" so I am wondering who wrote this book. It is so corny that I am having trouble connecting this author with the one who wrote "Sweet Thing". Maybe it actually gets better toward the end but I am about half way through and I just can't finish it. Uncomfortable cringing.

    Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. The job, the glory - it's all his. Not because it's handed to him but because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it-or destroys it. Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she's ever loved, the very last thing she's looking for is a relationship - especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering.

    It starts out slow but picks up in the second half. Filled with some fluff which gets a little boring. Still it was okay, especially the second half.

    As for the narrators, they were ok. Shirl Rae is someone I have heard before but has changed her name. I would know that giggle anywhere.

    When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's love at first sight. They wouldn't even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn't want love, she doesn't have time for love, so that just leaves the sex.

    Story

    Maybe I'm just over the whole broken soul dragging his heart around for hours of listening torture to be miraculously healed by some chick hopping into bed with him. It's just so dumb. The story line is weak and is mainly filled with fluff of the same agonizing dilema over and over and over and over and all they do is have sex that just gets monotonous. The dialogue is mainly in their heads so very little interaction...aside from the sex....which wasn't that good.
    As for the narrators...Grace Grant was really choppy at times in her reading and Deacon Lee isnt always the strongest narrator but in his defense his character was pretty weak so what are you going to do?
    Ugh!!!

    Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word. Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it - any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life. Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door.

    I stopped when the female character disclosed her damaged soul and then the male character said "well, I might as well tell you I'm damaged, too and I don't think I'll be undamaged anytime soon but we can still have sex." Just ridiculous. I couldn't continue.

    With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

    I have listened to all of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and those were awesome. Everyone of them! But this series is just plain old boring. I'm not looking for a bunch of torchered souls but it would be nice to have some twists and turns. Maybe even a little chuckle. Just something. I kept hoping but nothing really exciting happens. Need to rename it "Pleasant Valley" because everyone is pleasant. I think I am done with this group. Sorry Ms. Carr. Still love ya, tho.
    Therese Plummer is awesome, however.

    Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident prone, she’s got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night she's forced to pose as her friend might just be the worst time of all - that's when she's meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, never wanted before.
