    Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy," the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy," the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now—along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.

    "The rating says it all for me"
    Overall

    SEP was my first enjoyable introduction into listening to books. If I didn't own all of the others I would have thought this was her first attempt.
    I cannot figure out if it truly was the story or if it was missing the remarkable Ana Fields but whatever it was I found this story...tedious. If you want to own all of her audible books...that would be the only reason to purchase.. But that is just my opinion.

    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.

    Overall

    I ddin't expect to enjoy this book but I did. It has a good story and really good interesting characters. But it is slower than I would like. However, I really want the follow up book. Right away.

    Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother.

    But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.

    When Nora Roberts writes a book that scares me it really scares me. This was a very well written interesting book. Good read.

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    Candyce says: "LOVED IT!!"
    "Not for Traditionalist"
    Overall

    I truly dislike when a book is advertised different than it is. I am too traditional for this story. I gave 2 stars because I listened to the end. I found nothing in this book of redeaming value.

    It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

    KSK says: "Listen to "Say Goodbye" first"
    "Recommended and well written"
    Overall

    It was a good story. I don't think I was in the mood for it. I didn't like the last third of this book. Maybe it is just not my type.

  • If God Were Your Therapist: How to Love Yourself and Your Life and Never Feel Angry, Anxious or Insecure Again

    Dr. David Leiberman, offers insights into the human condition and reveals how, regardless of the opportunities available to us today, a lack of self-control results in poor choices and ultimately leads to negative emotions and destructive habits. If God Were Your Therapist offers neither exercises or affirmations. Rather, listeners learn how to regain self-control and move their thoughts, choices, and lives in a purposeful, powerful direction, free from the shackles of anxiety and stress.

    Melissa says: "Basic rules that make sense and need to be heard"
    "What was I thinking???"
    Overall

    No.1...I don't think this person knows what God would say. This is nothing more than bunk. Don't be fooled by this title. You can title a book anything.

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

    Amazon Customer says: "Please get the sequel here at Audible!"
    "Thoroughly entrancing"

    Complete enjoyment..and two stories for the price of one. Loved Nora Robert's lovely flow to the story. Narration is awesome. Not to be missed!

The monster who destroyed their beautiful home and took her mother away from her forever. The monster with the face of her father.

    "Highly Disappointing"
    Overall

    I truly did not like anyting about this book. I figured it out in the first chapter so it seemed endless. I just do not like books that are this depressing. I have enough things to get over, this is my entertainment therefore this book was a bad choice for me.
