    What did you love best about One Woman Man?

    The dedication to the woman he's with.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character. It shows that there are still men with values, within themselves, and for those they vow to love, until the last measure of love has been tested.


    What about Marc Damon Johnson’s performance did you like?

    Enjoyed his narration. Never dull, or exhausting to listen to, (as some I have listened to).


    If you could rename One Woman Man, what would you call it?

    Love's Destiny.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed this book and now looking for other Travis Hunter titles.

    What if a "Once in a Lifetime" could happen twice? Suffering from a past full of tragedy, Dahlia London's soul has been left completely shattered. Happily ever after is a far cry from reality in her world. But when she is reconnected with her past, the bonds that form are irrefutable. When River Wilde, lead singer of The Wilde Ones, comes back into Dahlia's life, the intensity that fires their relationship combined with underlying feelings that have never died lead her to believe she has met her soul mate.

    Would you try another book from Kim Karr and/or Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox ?

    Yes, but will read all reviews first.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More details in the beginning. This was the slowest book in history. I almost gave up numerous times, just frustrating. Had I not already paid for it, I would have just deleted the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very last couple of chapters..


    Was Connected worth the listening time?

    If you start in the middle of the book first.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    What made the experience of listening to The Litigators the most enjoyable?

    Lot of parts to make you laugh out loud.. You know when you've been at a job for a couple of decades, you seem to become complacent. Self satisfied and unconcerned...whatever it will be, it will be.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    "Well, not on the edge, but kept me listening while doing household chores. You know, mop the floor, run the dish water, and still be able to stay with the storyline. Normally, I'm transfixed on a John Grisham's novel. This one was nice/enjoyable, but not the normal "Deceit and Smart's" of a John Grisham novel.

    No Gold Statue for this one, but I did enjoy.. still worth the credit.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the no longer employed lawyer finds a new gig and how he finds it !!!


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

    No, but still remained interested in finishing it.

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Umh, I think I would, well, maybe, well maybe not. I'm still grasping for a decision with this audiobook. Although I do mostly enjoy Scott Brick's narration's. Sometimes I feel it's either his reading or just what he has to read that seems to take sooooo long to get to the "meat and potatoes" of the story, I find myself "rewinding" through chapters, and saying to myself - "Self -What in the world is this book about" This would definitely be one of those - What????? I'm lost. There were so many characters, and back and forth, and will we ever get to the actual storyline. Whew, I'm tired just thinking about explaining it. Well, I'll just move on to my next audiobook...


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

    Interesting....finally - ok, I get it now


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Yes, I'm nervous though..


    Could you see You're Next being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I think Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron would be a good collaboration.

    Reba Freeman has loved two men in her life. Her current husband, Carl, has supported her through their 20-year marriage and given her all the material wealth a suburban wife could hope for. Reba is comfortable, if not necessarily content, in her life with Carl and their blossoming teenage daughter, Marisa, until she learns that her first love and first husband, Joseph Thomas, has been detained by the World Court of Human Rights.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Accident of Birth to be better than the print version?

    Unable to compare, never read the book. Selected the audiobook by cover and title. Happy for a choice in the dark. Worth the credit!!!


    What other book might you compare Accident of Birth to and why?

    Not sure, I'd have to really think about that. Although I have traveled overseas and worked with foreign individuals. So, I can understand the trials and tribulations of those that are not born in the US, and that they truly survive the best way they know how, and their survival in the US, their financial stability/gain is solely sought for the aid in helping their families at home.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Why he actually left.


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

    Yes, not cry, but truly made me visualize the characters and why they took that walk out on the tight rope [so to say] for what they believed in.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the credit!!!

    Eric Jerome Dickey's boldly sensual new novel centers on what his fans love best - steamy romance and shocking betrayal. This is an edge-of-your-seat novel about a good man who loves his wife, Genevieve, but finds himself drawn against his best intentions into an affair - with his wife's sister. Both women have a mysterious and tragic past that raises the stakes in this fast-paced novel.

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

    Yes, You never know who the person you're with - really is, until you know and understand some of their family history.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The intertwining of the main characters experiences, and why they were both holding back -truths- and still living through their past visuals and circumstances.


    What about Richard Allen’s performance did you like?

    He has a great voice, and nice ability to change character voice's in order to keep you in tune with the story.


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

    Yes... the "Oh No No No" surprise, left me with my mouth open!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, and there must be a part two coming one of these years..
