So many books so little time - but Audible gives me the gift of multitasking - I can get those simple tasks done AND be up on great reads.

    Big surprises are on the horizon for Ethan and Brynne as they struggle to adjust to what life has thrown at them. Demons from the past are threatening to destroy the passionate bond they’ve forged despite their vow that nothing will ever keep them apart. A truly devastating loss coupled with the promise of a new hope opens their eyes to what is most important, but is it possible for the lovers to move on from the painful histories that continue to haunt them?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Eyes Wide Open to be better than the print version?

    n/a


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bryn's low self confidence is realistic, not over the top & I even appreciate that the character knows when she may be dramatic.


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant and Shane East ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    YES! I LOVE that Shane East reads from Blackstone's first person chapters and Grace Grant the female's. Both are convincing as the characters. This is well produced!


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

    No. That isn't how I read. I like to sit back after an hour & think about what I read... make it last (kinda like the sex scenes - which are MOST awesome).


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate Raine Miller's male protagonist: Again, not over the top - he works at an office long days, yet not crazy rich. Although I am not a man - Raine has the alpha male in the thick of passion written well.

    Story

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "Protagonist more complicated than I expected"

    Where does The Cuckoo's Calling rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5% (p.s. pretend you don't know it is J.K. Rowling)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Strike - he was very much less than perfect; so many flaws & he knew them, but just did it anyway.


    Which character – as performed by Robert Glenister – was your favorite?

    Strike- Glenister embodies Strike. I saw him hobble, be angry with his body.


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

    With all his flaws he wanted to be sure his new protege knew he would keep his relationship with her professional. That he appreciated Robin for her mind and willingness to be his student.

    Ethan Blackstone has a problem on his hands. He’s broken Brynne's trust, and she’s left him. He's unwilling to live without her and isn’t giving up - he's dead-set on getting his beautiful American girl back. Here is the fiery story of what happens when two people surrender to a love so great it can heal the scars of the past and give way to a life of pure, rapturous ecstasy.

    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    Story
    If you could sum up On Dublin Street in three words, what would they be?

    Some steamy sex.


    What other book might you compare On Dublin Street to and why?

    VERY light compared to 50 Shades.


    What about Paula Costello’s performance did you like?

    Scottish Accents! Dang, Braden Carmichael's accent did it for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Jocelyn's snarkiness is over the top. If she could have toned it down, this would be a 4 star performance.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a alpha jealous man with an accent & some very good sex scenes, this is a fun book

    "Sometimes I want to spend hours talking with my best friends about boys and fashion and school and life. I want to go to the gym; I want my hair to look nice; I want to be allowed to wear jeans. I want to be a normal young woman living in America, sometimes. But I want other things more. All the time. I want to be spiritually and emotionally filled every day. I want to be loved and cuddled by a hundred children and never go a day without laughing.

    Would you try another book from Katie Davis and Beth Clark and/or Jaimee Draper?

    no


    What could Katie Davis and Beth Clark have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    a story that followed a timeline. Instead it was essays that followed a timeline. Katie gives a lot of credit to God, & that makes sense to a point, but I wish she would have taken credit for 80% of them. God gives you the talent, it is up to you to develop them.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    sure
