    Singer-songwriter Lucy Moore thought her life was perfect. At just 21, she's already met her soul mate and together they've landed a recording contract. But when her father dies and the love of her life betrays her in more ways than one she returns home to pick up the pieces. On the shores of Mendocino, California, Lucy has some decisions to make. Should she start a solo career? Or should she leave it all behind for some semblance of normalcy in the quiet town she grew up in? And what about Seth, the tortured artist who always seems to be there when she needs him?

    What made the experience of listening to Defining Destiny: New Adult Romance the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoy books read by Andi Arndt, she portrays the characters she reads perfectly. I didn't love the male voice, but it was bearable.


    Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt and Jeffrey Kafer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Another awesome performance by Andi Arndt


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book, but I was getting a little tired of all the references to "soul mates". I thought it had a great story line but was getting dragged down by all the references

    College is supposed to be a time of discovery, but Danielle Vaughn never imagined it would be like this: Heightened senses, supernatural powers, and a sudden craving for human blood. Dani is a demi-vamp, the daughter of a human psychic and a vampire noble, a living secret kept hidden for 21 years. As Dani’s heritage manifests itself, her thirst for blood is matched only by her hunger for Chase Diedrick.

    I have to agree with the other reviews, the editing needs to be looked at. Many times throughout the book the narrator starts the same sentence again.

    The story line was okay, I've read and heard better. Not something I would run out and buy.

    Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She's never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she'll begin to truly despise. She'll ignore him, she'll dislike his ways, she'll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in.

    Eight months. That's how long it's been since Eliza last saw Gage, and they both feel as if they don't deserve one another's forgiveness. He screwed up. She walked away without looking back. They'll try and make up all the time they've lost with one another, that is, until they're facing the choices of either going their separate ways, or hanging on and fighting for dear life. The fights will be endless. The heartache will be real. The demons will return, and they won't back down without a fight.

    This was a great series. I agree with some of the other comments, the narrators voice at times was "stuffy", but not enough to take away from the story. I would recommend this series.

    Tossed out of college and cut off by her parents, Samantha West is in pretty dire straits. So when her rocker best friend hooks her up with a job dancing at a gentlemen's club, who is she to turn it down? Plus, there are rules to dancing at Benny's: No touching, keep your clothes on at all times, and never get closer than three feet. Unfortunately for Sam, her first private client makes her want to break every single one of them.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to a friend. The narration is subpar. The voice of the narrator doesn't mesh with the characters.


    Would you recommend A Little Too Hot to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I would not recommend this book to my friends. I honestly feel the narrators voice will either make or break a book. In this case, it broke it!! I still have 5 hours left and not sure I can honestly finish listening to the title.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Don't feel this was the right "voice" for the characters.

    Have you ever gone just a little too far? Lexie Banks has. Yep. She just had mind-blowing sex with her stepbrother. In her defense, she was on the rebound, and it's more of a my-dad-happened-to-marry-a-woman-with-a-super-hot-son situation. But still, he's been her best friend and confidant for the better part of the last few years...and is so off limits. It's a good thing she's leaving in two days for a year abroad in Rome. But even thousands of miles away, Lexie can't seem to escape trouble.

    Dr. Shelly Monroe is a woman who doesn't shy away from going after what she wants, but lately good sex has been hard to find. Shelly's become increasingly frustrated with the men she's been dating and the men she believes are the right choice.Joshua Daniels is certainly not even close to the right choice. In fact, he is exactly the wrong choice. For one thing, he's Mason Langley's best friend and best man. Second, he's too much of a risky complication for Shelly to even consider.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I read the first book in this series and loved it, so I thought I would listen to the second book. I couldn't even finish listening to the book (believe me I tried). The narrators voice is so nasally. It didn't fit the character


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ella Frank? Why or why not?

    Yes, if another narrator was reading the book


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mackenzie Cartwright’s performances?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    What I learned from this experience was not to go with just reading the reviews, you really need to listen to the sound bite. If I had listened to the sound bite, I wouldn't have purchased this book regardless of the great reviews.

    Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.

    Two secrets. One bet. Who will break first? Taylor Caldwell can't decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him. On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitar-playing bad boy. Maybe that's why Taylor's afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn't want to get burned, so she needs him gone before it's too late.

    Would you try another book from Chelsea M. Cameron and/or Kate Rudd?

    Depends on the age of the characters. This book started out great, but mid way through turned very immature. To the point I didn't want to finsih listening to it.


    Would you recommend My Favorite Mistake to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if the book was on sale, but wouldn't pay full price for it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?

    Not sure...voice mid way became very nasally almost as though Kate had a cold?


    Could you see My Favorite Mistake being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no, don't feel it was movie or TV material
