    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 did you love best about Reflected in You?

    The story line. So much better than 50 Shades of Gray!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ava was my favorite. She had real life issues.


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

    Narration quality. It brought the book to life and made the experience so much more enjoyable.


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

    When Cary was in the hospital. It showed how much Gideon really felt about Ava.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to all three books and am on my third time to listen again. Yes, the situations are silly at times. But the narration and actual story are so good you have to listen multiple times to really get the whole book. These are similar to 50 Shades but so much better. I am waiting for the 4th book to come out. I wish Sylvia Day would hurry it up!!! I want the story to continue.

Determined to find a distraction from the pain of losing Jack Henry, she immerses herself in her music. But with her old life comes old acquaintances and new expectations. When Laurelyn refuses her record producer's outrageous demands, she finds herself without a career - until an unforeseen opportunity presents itself.

    If you could sum up Beauty from Surrender in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastic, sweet and loving


    What did you like best about this story?

    The pain and love of decision


    How could the performance have been better?

    Robert Black's accent as an Aussie is great. However, his voice of Laurenlyn was horrible. They should have had Bunny do Laurenlyn as herself. He does not do a good southern woman voice.


    Who was the most memorable character of Beauty from Surrender and why?

    Jack Henry. He was in love and thrown completely off by his feelings for Laurenlyn.


    Any additional comments?

    Narration is key to these audible books. Even though the story line was great and I will listen a second time to both books. I would like to have listened to better narration. I love a man with an accent but when a man tries to portray a women it just doesn't work.
