    Story

    I read one of the author's other books (Carpe Diem) and enjoyed her ability to tell a story. Found this audio and decided to give it a try. This is just a sexual romp beyond belief. The main character, Linda, is obviously over sexed, but her ability to try anything is mind blowing.
    The narrator does an excellent job in making this nymph seem real and I really got caught up in her orgasmic reading of the main characters exploits.

    This is pure raw erotica, but well presented. Not for the faint at heart or prudish.

  • Making the Shift: How to Live Your True Divine Purpose

    The Shift is a call to become more conscious, to move from aimless ambition to meaning and purpose. Making this Shift is a necessity in order to live a peaceful, fulfilling life aligned with your divine calling. In this deeply engaging live seminar, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains that instead of heeding the demands of the ego, which keep you mired in self-sabotage through never-ending pleas and false promises, you can choose to move in a new direction.

    I am a Wayne Dyer fan and while a lot of this was repeated material, his new thought on the “shift” were refreshing. Listened to it twice on my commute and will probably do it one more time.

    Join Linda and her husband, Jason, as they explore the various aspects of the "Swingers' Lifestyle". It may be at a clothing-optional resort, an on-premise club, a private party, or any of the other hundred places these two free spirits explore, but it is guaranteed that you will find more open sexual activity than you ever imagined. They live life to the max because sex is their hobby.

    In this audiobook, they attend a private party with other swingers. It is a night you will never forget.

    Story

    I read book 1 and now listened to Book 2 and found both to be fun adventures about a very sex oriented couple. It is not a strong story plot but more of a reporting on the activities of Linda and Jason. They are a couple who find great compatibility in the area of open marriage. Linda is definitely a free spirit and I found her to be softer and more gentle in book 2 than book 1. She knows how to get into trouble and loves every minute. As in book 1, this is not a audiobook for the prudish or faint at heart,, but for the rest of us it is a great listen. Anne Johnstonbrown, the narrator, did a good job of capturing the characters, especially the antics of Linda and her husband Jason. Wonder where book 3 will go?

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    After all the hype about the book, I guess I expected a real blockbuster. Not so much. The repetition of email addresses about drove me crazy. Interesting story, but nothing I would get overly excited about in a review. Maybe the BDSM is a secret national fetish.

    James M. McPherson, professor emeritus of U.S. history at Princeton, is one of the foremost scholars of the Civil War. In this informative and meticulously researched masterpiece, he clarifies the differing ways of life and philosophy that led to this shattering conflict. Abraham Lincoln wondered whether "in a free government the minority have the right to break up the government". And Jefferson Davis felt "forced to take up arms" to guarantee states' rights.

  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    I am a Dyer fan and was looking for something to take on vacation. The book is one of my favorite and I thought this might be something a little deeper. While it was well presented and contained some new information, it was basically a sound tape about the book. I liked it and it refreshed me even if it was a review. If you read the book, no real need to get this unless you are like me and love Dyer.

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

    Not all my friends may be into the erotic/romance genre but for those who are, this is a great read. Sandy is the embodiment of so many women who have gone throughout the pain of divorce, put their life back together and now need to move on with their journey.


    What did you like best about this story?

    While the sexual content is a part of the story, the romance of Sandy and Justin is refreshing as it is two adults who are familiar with the pain of life yet willing to explore its pleasures.


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

    She seems to identify with the female lead character and truly brings her conflicts to life. Her voice in the narration adds depth to the sexual interaction. Happy that the author used a female voice.


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

    I did!!

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    Any time a relationship becomes a triangle it has potential for heat. It may warm us or burn us, you never know. This book exposed all parts of such triangular relationships. Well done.

Sometimes a man and a woman get exactly the gift they want.
