    Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Law Man to be better than the print version?

    In this case the reader's male voices swayed me towards the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the "Billy's".


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The female characters were okay, but the male voices were poor and distracting for me.


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

    I enjoyed the epilogue.


    Any additional comments?

    Always love Kristen Ashley's stories!

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

    If you could sum up Sixth Grave on the Edge in three words, what would they be?

    Great plot twists


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sixth Grave on the Edge?

    The final scene.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is by far one of the best at creating the characters' personalities with her voice. She has a real gift of bringing the characters to life.


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

    The meeting between Charlie, Angel, and his mom.

    What did you like best about Fire Inside? What did you like least?

    I didn't really feel the connection with these two like most couples in the Kristen Ashley books. I think I was most disappointed in the narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Kate Russell’s performance?

    Her rendition of Hop's voice seemed overdone and was distracting.


    Could you see Fire Inside being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    If this were to be made into a movie or series, I would make this story a sideline and make one of the other characters (like Tack) the main storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so glad other KA series like Rock Chicks is becoming available. These are classic Kristen Ashley stories.

    Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

    Where does Rock Chick rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Kristen Ashley's stories and this is the beginning of an enjoyable, fun series. She is one of my all time favorite authors. I just hope they also add the 'Burg series and the Colorado series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tex is my all time favorite. It doesn't get much crazier than his antics and dialogue.


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

    I have not heard her before. I thought she did a fine job.

    More Kristen Ashley, please!

    Where does A Righteous Kill rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first book I have listened to by this author. I did enjoy the story and will continue with the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Righteous Kill?

    I enjoyed the interventions with Hero's family.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator has a British accent, but the main character is Hispanic. It is very unbelievable to listen to his thoughts and narration with a British accent. Unfortunately in my case, it detracted from the story. Besides that you have other characters with an Irish accent and a Russian accent. Makes things muddled for me.

    While filling the display case in her bakery, the bell over the door sounds and Tessa O'Hara looks up to see the man of her dreams. Within thirty seconds he asks her out for a beer. But after four months of dating, she discovers he's an undercover DEA agent-and he's investigating her possible role in her ex-husband's drug business. For Tess, this means their relationship is over.

    What made the experience of listening to Wild Man the most enjoyable?

    What other book might you compare Wild Man to and why?

    Mystery Man is another great story in this series that is on Audible.


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

    I have listened to Mystery Man and they are both good.

    I hope more Kristen Ashley series are sold on Audible.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mystery Man to be better than the print version?

    The narrator of this KA story is better than the first one, but I really wish they would get someone who makes a true distinction between voices. Since this is not the case, I will have to say the print version is better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am a big Elvira fan. I would really love to hear a narrator be able to capture her character because she is quite a character.


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

    I have not heard her narration before.


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

    I did just because of the story. There is never a dull moment.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to hear someone like Loralie King read Kristen Ashley 's stories. They have such enjoyable characters that she would bring to life.

    Tabitha Allen grew up in the thick of Chaos - the Chaos Motorcycle Club, that is. Her father is Chaos' leader, and the club has always had her back. But one rider was different from the start. When Tabby was running wild, Shy Cage was there. When tragedy tore her life apart, he helped her piece it back together. And now, Tabby's thinking about much more than friendship.... Tabby is everything Shy's ever wanted, but everything he thinks he can't have.

    What did you love best about Own the Wind?

    Kristen Ashley 's story though it helps to have read the earlier books in this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was looking forward to reading Tabby's story.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    This was the weakest part. Very little distinction between characters. Little emotion. Not like a true professional reader where you are not distracted by the reading of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that there will be more Kristen Ashley books on audible. I really don't like it when they start in the middle of a series. Hopefully audible will improve the narrator and offer Ashley 's complete series including Rock Chicks, 'Burg series, Colorado series, Dream Man series, and Unfinished Heroes.
