    From the moment he lays eyes on the Sinners' new soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she's too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible - exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her.

    Story

    I can't believe the same author who wrote the first books in the series actually wrote this! What happened? The writing is silly and juvenile and Rebekah is annoying! The narration was also worse than in previous books. Her speech was "wooden" and lacked enthusiasm. And for a book about the Sinners, there was so little actually happening with the band. Disapointing!

    One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

    Story

    Was there an editor for this book? If there was, fire him or her. No qualified editor would have let this horribly written book get out to the public. The writing makes no sense, words are used incorrectly and sentences run on and on. The narration is no better. Characters all sound the same so you don't know who's talking and the book is read in a sloooooow breathy whisper. Deleting from my library.

    Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior. Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne knows she can turn to only one man.

    Dear audiobook publishers: Why do you have narrators who lisp?
    This is a good story which is completely ruined by a narrator who has a distracting lisp. Sounds like she has a tongue stud. The book is worth the read, not the listen.

    On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better. A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

    As usual, I had high hopes for another great book. Unfortunately, this was one of the most boring In Death books. If it hadn't picked up towards the end, I would have questioned whether or not JDR had somebody else write it. Also, S.E. decided to narrate this book soooooo sloooowwwlyyyyyy. I thought something was wrong with my iPod!

    Would you try another book from Erik Larson and/or Scott Brick?

    Probably not from the the author but the narration was good.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Erik Larson again?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The most entertaining parts were about the inventions that arose out of necessity while building the fair. The parts about the serial killer were OK.

In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Would you try another book from Jeaniene Frost and/or Tavia Gilbert?

    Jeaniene YES
    Tavia NO


    What didn’t you like about Tavia Gilbert’s performance?

    I have read and love all the Kindle books from both series. After reading many of the reviews I purchased the audiobooks on sale. I must agree with the negative reviews of the narrator. Her Bones voice is HORRIBLE and her Spanish accent for Juan is even worse! I'll stick to the "printed" version.


    Do you think Halfway to the Grave needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    As many follow-up books as Jeaniene wants to write, I will read (not listen).

    They call him the Devil Earl - a scoundrel and accused murderer who grew up on the violent London streets. A proper young lady risks more than her reputation when consorting with the roguishly handsome Lucian Langdon, but Lady Catherine Mabry believes she has no choice. To protect those she loves, she would do anything-even strike a bargain with the devil himself. Lucian desires respectability and a wife above all else, but the woman of his choosing lacks the social graces to be accepted by the aristocracy.

    No, but I'll be sure to check out some of her other performances. She was terrific!

Trace of Fever stars Trace Rivers, a private mercenary looking for vengeance after his sister’s kidnapping. Trace has targeted human trafficker Murray Coburn as the man responsible, but his plans for payback get complicated when Coburn’s beautiful daughter turns up.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The characters' names sound the same and are very distracting. The narrator did the best he could with Trace, Pris, Chris and Alice but I constantly found myself saying,


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Like his performances in Black Dagger Brotherhood, and although he did a fine job with this book, the story is weak.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Another author's re-write.

    Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was full of witty, amusing dialogue between characters. It's one of those extra special In Death books that you'll listen to over and over.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I don't think I'd say I was on the edge of my seat, but I didn't guess the villain until the end.


    What about Susan Ericksen???s performance did you like?

    Everything!
