    Beth has always lived in her outgoing sister's shadow, plagued by her own insecurity about her body. It’s time for her to step out from the sidelines and experience what life has to offer - then she's laid off from her teaching job, and has to rely on her sister to get her a job at Danvers International. Nick Merimon is gorgeous, wealthy, and a well-known playboy - just the sort of man Beth has always avoided. But even she can't deny the sparks that are flying between them.

    I have read all the books in this series and seriously loved them. This one was good but to tell the truth the character of Beth really annoyed me at first. she improved with the story but man she was a real bitch at first. I liked Nick a lot, hard not to with that personality. But I did fell that he should have seriously toke a stronger stand with her. Because, really, NO man in his right mind would have put up with the crap she put him through in the very beginning. get real.

    No matter how hard she tries, Elleanor Fisher never thinks she's good enough, from her job to her weight to her love life. After enduring years of abuse at the hands of an ex-boyfriend, Elli has been drifting through life in a daze. Until, that is, she meets Shea Adler on a promotional shoot for the NHL's Nashville Assassins. Before Elli knows what's happening, the gorgeous Shea breaks the ice and shatters her world. A brilliant athlete inside the rink, Shea Adler is tired of the life he's living outside of it: the women, the money, the drinking. But everything changes when he meets Elli.

    What did you like best about Taking Shots? What did you like least?

    I'm finding it difficult to actually think of something that I really liked about this book, unfortunately nothing really stands out about it. It was simply OK. There is a lot that I didn't like though. Perhaps these things are the reason I can't find anything to exceptional about Taking Shots. I found it extremely annoying with the continuous use of the giggling, and Shea referring to Elli and all women as GIRLS. Come on, we're supposed be talking about grownups here, not teenagers. I kept hoping that she stop using those phrase so much, but it didn't happen. It was distracting and kept thinking that it all sounded childish. Drove me crazy.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Now I have to admit that I liked the ending....it was probably the one part of the whole but that felt like I was dealing with adults and not a couple of kids. It was dramatic and sappy and a little funny at the same time. I won't go into what happened cause it was the best part of the whole book.


    Did Lucy Malone do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I liked Lucy's reading of the book. She did a good job of letting you know Shea was from the east coast and that Elli was pure southern.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Well making it sound like they were talking about adults would have made it sooooo much better. Shea was a sweetheart, maybe to sweet at times. I mean he is supposed be this hot, famous hockey player after all. Also Elli was a contradiction. They want you to think of her as this sophisticated, confident, successful woman. But most of the time she came across as anything but. Overall, Taking Shots was simply OK. It wasn't a bad read. If your really bored and you don't mind the strange use of wording in the book, then you will enjoy this book. It had it's moments. I might try another just to see if she continues with the same phrasing, if so then it will most likely be the last one I buy.

    Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.

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

    Yes. Mainly because it was Mitch and he was wonderful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Billy and Billie were what made this story. They were phenomenal! I was in love with these two kids from start to finish.


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

    Yes. All the books in the Dream Man series were really, really good. After all who doesn't love strong willed, seriously hot guys that think you hung the moon.


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

    It made me laugh and cry. You had to with those two kids. God they just ripped your heart out. I must admit though, most of my strong reactions came from wanting to belt Mara...I don't do frustration well.


    Any additional comments?

    Mitch is this really great guy, who just happens to be the total package. He's HOT, as in singe your fingers hot. He's kind, thoughtful, strong take charge and not in a do what your told way, though he does have a few moments like that. He is exactly what every woman dreams about. Mara on the other hand drove me NUTS! At first I though she was just really funny with the whole he's a 10.5 and I'm a 2.5. You feel alittle sorry for her. figuring low self esteem, rough child hood, nightmare family, so on and so forth. You get it, you understand. But when well over half the book has gone by and she is still doing the poor me act and holding him away like he's Satan incarnate you start getting sick of it really fast. Honestly, if it hadn't been for this being Mitch's book and the kids I might not have finished it. Mara had me just that aggravated. Luckly, about 3/4 of the way through the book, it starts gets better and the story is saved. So if you can bear up to a lot of whining from Mara and hang in you will end up liking the book.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    What made the experience of listening to Lick the most enjoyable?

    Lick is a rather deceiving title. I was afraid it would be all sex and no story but happily I was wrong. I haven't read a romance like this in a long time. David was a sweetheart in the guise a hardcore rocker. He really has it bad for Evelyn. Can we say love at first sight. There are parts that will make you laugh, smile, sigh and even sad. Luckily though love prevails with the help of common sense...lol...Can't wait for the next book to come out. I really want to see Malcolm get his 'OWN'...child bride indeed!
