    Dr. Ali Torveau knows just how fragile life can be - she sees death and tragedy every day in the trauma unit. Battling the dark forces of fate is her life's work and she doesn't want or need anything else, certainly nothing as transient as love. Plenty of women try to change her mind, but she never has any trouble saying no. Not until the day firefighter Beau Cross shows up in her ER and sets Ali’s carefully ordered world aflame.

    What did you love best about Safe Harbor?

    I love this book. I love this series. I personally found Radclyffe by mistake, I was tired or reading Nicholas Sparks books about straight couples. Great books but I wanted something I could relate to a little more. I started with the Honor series, then Justice Series and finally with the Provincetown Tales. These are by far my favorite. I love Reese. She is everything I wish I was so I guess I am like Bri. In Safe Harbor you get little pieces of who Reese is and there is so many different back stories that make you feel like this isn't a fictional character it could be someone who know. The characters really come to life. I had a lot more written then discovered I was writing spoilers so I deleted it. Seriously please read this book its amazing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Can I say everything? I loved this book. I love this series. I think what I loved the most is the fact that while the book is about two woman falling in love, it touches on so many different social issues. It is just a beautiful story.


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

    No, but she did the entire series and she is great. Not as good as Betsy Zajko but leagues above Abby Craden. She has a beautiful voice and you can easily get lost in her voice and Radclyffes words.


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

    There was. I do not want to talk about it because it gives away some really special parts of the book. I would say in this book I can easily think of 3 different times I was moved.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this series at least 4 times and am working on my 5th time. It is such a great story, I hope she writes more for it soon.

    What do you do when your carefully planned life takes a wrong turn into hell? When Quinn Maguire, a dashing young trauma surgeon, unaccountably accepts a position as an ER physician, her new boss, Honor Blake, suspects that Quinn is hiding a dark secret. While the two declare an uneasy truce in an effort to work together, both struggle with mutual, and unexpected, attraction.

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

    I would, this is a great story. You always want to know more... you can easily identify with each other the women in the story. The feel and tone of the book is real, this could be you or it could be me and the mystery behind each women is true to how we lead our lives. I bought this book on 11/6/14 and today is 11/27/14 and I have listened to it 4 times, it is just a beautiful story.


    What other book might you compare Fated Love to and why?

    I do not compare books to each other each book offers something new so to compare is unfair. I would say this is very much a Radclyffe novel and I personally love her novels so I guess, I would compare it to that. If you want to compare it to another author i think this is a little similar to some of Nicholas Sparks books just gay.


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

    I typically do not like Abby Craden, I find her that she tries to voice the "butch" character of the story and to me it sounds like no woman I have ever met. Just because a woman is "butch" doesn't mean she sounds like a man. I will say in this story, maybe because Quinn isn't really that "butch" she didn't do it very much, so I enjoyed her doing this story. I own the entire honor series where Craden is the narrator as well and I think it is a large part of the reason why it is my least favorite series.


    Who was the most memorable character of Fated Love and why?

    Quinn completely she is like a dream woman. Smart, kind, gentle, knowing. The way she is portrayed in the book I do not think you can read it and not fall in love with her. At least I didn't.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though Craden is the narrator of the story still listen, its really a great book.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    First time I saw her was in the mirror on my locker door. I'd kicked my swim gear onto the bottom shelf and was reaching to the top for my calc book when she opened her locker across the hall. She had a streaked blonde ponytail dangling out the back of her baseball cap.... We slammed our lockers in unison and turned. Her eyes met mine. "Hi," she said, smiling. My stomach fluttered. "Hi," I answered automatically. She was new. Had to be. I would've noticed her. She sauntered away, but not before I caught a glimpse of her T-shirt. It said: IMRU? Am I what?

    Secret Service Agent Cameron Roberts made a promise to Blair Powell, the President's daughter - not to place her own life in danger protecting Blair - but a request from the Commander in Chief forces her to break her word. In this sequel to Above All, Honor, Cameron places duty before love and accepts reassignment as the chief of Blair's security detail, despite knowing that this decision may destroy their tenuous new relationship. As the rift between them widens, more than one woman is happy to offer Blair the company that Cam cannot.

    Seriously Abby Craden needs to understand that even though the character is butch doesn't mean she sounds like a gross man. I would prefer the print but I do not have time to read I have time to listen in my car as I drive to point A to point B.


    What aspect of Abby Craden’s performance would you have changed?

    Again butch people do not sound like nasty trucker guys!


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

    I truly got excited at the end when the events all played out. I was yelling in my car.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the book hate the narrator. Yet not enough for me not to continue the story.
