    Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

    If you could sum up Simple Perfection in three words, what would they be?

    Unexpected. Brilliant. Love.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the story of Della and Woods. Thank goodness that I have a little closure on what happened to them. I've been wondering since reading Rush and Blaire's story when Blaire pulled the gun on that horrid woman what was going to happen to Della. Now I can sleep easy!


    What does Elizabeth Louise and Sebastian York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Elizabeth Louise - she has an amazing narration voice, and acts - not just reads.


    If you could take any character from Simple Perfection out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Woods - duh. I would eat him for dinner - yum!


    Any additional comments?

    I have to know what happens to Tripp and Bethy now!!! Please Abbi - write their story!!!!

    Luke Boone doesn't know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in, but he wants in on it - the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he's finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set - one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it's not exactly legal, Luke's never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of a gorgeous socialite named Rain.

    I really liked the story of Luke and Rain. The narrators did a fabulous job of reading this tale.
    The book was very well written, of course, the author being one of my favorites.
    Just like Burying Water though, this book is almost a stressful read. You want to know what happens, but you know it's a complicated set up, so it's stressful to figure out how it will end.
    It's well worth a credit :)

    Every story has two sides, and in this new book the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes. All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson: You're worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal bandmates, and fast women...until he meets her.

    Get ready for an intense read if you take on this series! This author has a way of bringing the characters to life. To where you love them, hate them and seriously start to care for them.... as if they are real!

    Loved this book in Kellen's point of view. While reading Kiera's side in the 1st three, I always wondered what Kellen was doing when he was out, where he went, what was going on in his head. And come to find out, he was so emotional and invested in her! I almost wanted to strangle our little Kiera after hearing his side of the story. But isn't that what a good author does...make you care so much that you want to strangle an imaginary character?!
    Get this book - but totally read the other three too! Worth the credit!

    After being caught in the middle of a love triangle which led to a devastating betrayal, Kiera pledged to learn from the mistakes she’d made. She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

    Loved, loved, loved book 1.
    Book 2 didn't disappoint as a follow up :)
    This is the authors best trilogy. Have read the other and it was good, but this one was great. Spectacular. Wonderfully delightful.
    The narrator was fantastic as Kiera again and I love her other voices. Her Australian accent is delightful and her performance of Griffin is the best! Griffin is my favorite character in the whole series. Comic relief is always the best :) I giggle whenever his lines are delivered.
    I've listened to this series three times now, and am patiently waiting for the release of book 4, from Kellen's view point.
    Read this side of the story 1st... You won't be disappointed!

    As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise - until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed. All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy.… As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

    This is a beautifully written book in Lucas/ Landon's point of view. The companion book was amazing and I read it first, but there is so much more detail to the story that comes out in this version. I loved hearing about his adolescence spent on the beach :)
    The narrator is awesome. Sometimes they don't match up with the tone/ feel of the book, but this one absolutely does :)

Especially now that he seems to be pursuing her, too. No one wants them to be together.

Even Preston realizes he's not good enough for someone like her.

    Playboy Cage owns the apartment, and he hosts a revolving door of people, in and out, at all times. Most of them are long-legged hot girls who are never there more than a night or two. When Cage’s new roommate, Marcus, enters the picture, he’s just looking to nurse a broken heart. But there’s one particular semi-frequent regular who catches his eye. Willow - 'Low' - is the one Cage wants to marry. But the two of them are night and day, and Marcus can’t see how Low puts up with all of Cage’s womanizing.

    Sadie White’s summer job is at the beach, but she won’t be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island. When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal - if she hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house - maybe she’d be excited about working for a rock star. But she’s not.

    I've listened to this series several times, I love the writing! Abbi Glines is one of my favorite authors.
    Jax and Sadie are great characters to start a series with. Everyone loves the idea of being able to snag a rock star, even if you are just the maid :)
    Sadie is the best female lead, no one could ever hate her. She is the perfect character to snag the hot unobtainable rocker.

    Emma is content. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her love life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate steps in, and she crashes into a tall, dark, and handsome man - Teren Adams. He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than most people’s. For instance, he’s a "little bit" vampire. He has fangs, incredible hearing, unbelievable speed, and, on occasion, he enjoys drinking a steaming cup of blood. But he’s also very much alive.

    Story

    This book was very interesting. I like to see how an author views their vampire world. They are all different, and I love to see what each type of vamp can do in each series. So I was interested with this one because he is a half vamp. That was a new one to me.
    It was sort of boring in the beginning, but I kept on going because I love this author from her series Thoughtless. The author was actually the reason why I even gave this book a shot.
    In the end, I would say again that it was interesting. It could have been a little "dirtier" for my taste, but I'll read the next book to see what happens.

    Overall: Use a credit if you've got one :)

    Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma's boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn't go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past. Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach.
