    Jin Rayne is having trouble adjusting to the new life he’s supposed to love. Instead of adapting to being the mate of tribe leader Logan Church, Jin can't get past the fact that his lover was straight before they met. He's discovered the joy in belonging to Logan but fears his new life could disappear at a moment’s notice, despite Logan's insistence that they are forever, end of story.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love seeing the emotional journey Jin experiences as he comes to realize how much he trusts and loves Logan.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Gelder’s performance?

    I was so disappointed in the narration. There were inflections that made no sense, pauses in the middle of sentences that had no purpose and no changes in voice or tone to accommodate the different characters.

    American exchange student Kate Bordessa has fled to Russia to escape her family's hopes that she'll become one of the Proffered, human women who feed and mate with elite vampire warriors.

Grieving over the deaths of his brothers, Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev has thrown himself into battling his enemies, focused only on vengeance. Until now.

    Yes


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

    I couldn't finish the book. Made it about 2/3 through and just couldn't stand all the painfully manufactured angst.

    Savannah was groomed from birth to take the reins of her father’s manufacturing empire. Her emotional armor is as tough as the steel used in her factories, and nobody is allowed past it. Business partner Matt realizes that the key to entry is to command her submission. Calling on the unique sensual talents of his four-man management team, he engineers an aggressive and erotic takeover.

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

    Joey W Hill is one of my favorite authors so I was delighted to learn that her books were coming out in audio. I would recommend any Joey book to erotic romance readers who enjoy reading story lines with BDSM themes.

    This particular book is the start of one of Joey's very popular series, Knights of the Boardroom. It tells the story of Savannah, the CEO of a manufacturing company and Matt (and his leadership team), her business partner and CEO of Kensington Industries. Matt is determined to get Savannah to accept that he is the one for her and he uses all the talents and skills his team has available to press the point home one very eventful night.


    What about G.C. VonCloudts’s performance did you like?

    G.C VonCloudts did a wonderful job. Her interpretation helped me reinterpret some scenes that had bothered me when I first read the book. I will be more inclined to buy an audio book if she is the narrator for it.

    Mercy Thompson's life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter, Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more.... After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam - or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They've all been abducted.....

    What did you love best about Frost Burned?

    The story was wonderful and I love Mercy, Adam, Asil, Ben (actually all the pack we got to see) and Stephen.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The one thing I really wish would have been better was the accent Ms King used for Asil. It sounded more Dracula like than Spanish to me (her accent for Stephen and Marsila also sounds more Dracula than Italian, but since they are vampires, it made sense to me). Other than that complaint, I think the narration was very well done.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

    Where does Alpha and Omega rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorite audiobooks.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters of Charles and Anna. Seeing their relationship develop as they deal with the pack was very enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think my favorite scene was either the one at the Greek restaurant or after they go back to the apartment after the restaurant and Charles is in wolf form to try to heal the bullet wound.

    Where does Moon Called rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    While my favorite audio books are Holter Gram's audio rendition of the Alpha and Omega series, this audio book comes close behind those.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Mercy Thompson. She is a wonderful main character who does the right thing even though she knows it will likely place her in a situation she would prefer to avoid (getting back involved with the wolves).


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I think Lorelei King's voice was excellent for Mercy Thompson and her thoughts.


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

    I enjoyed listening to this book as I walked over a series of days.

    What did you love best about Cry Wolf?

    Cry Wolf is an excellent story. Patricia Briggs' book is well written and the characters are very well drawn. The audio book was beautifully done to match the book itself. Holter Graham's did a wonderful job of portraying each character so well and I thoroughly enjoyed it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charles, of course, cause he's Charles but Anna and Bran were really close seconds.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Holter Graham's Fair Game and Hunting Ground also and I think he did an excellent job in all three.
