    Jordan Rhodes is invited to all of Chicago's best parties, but there's only one the FBI wants to crash. To get her brother out of jail, she agrees to take Agent McCall as her date. But when the mission gets botched, requiring their "relationship" to continue, it starts to feel less like an investigation-and a lot like something else.

    Story

    A Lot Like Love has a great premise. FBI enlists the help of a billionaires daughter to cause a diversion so the FBI can bug a local business owner believed to be laundering money. In return, they will get her brother out of prison, where he is serving a sentence for hacking into Twitter.

    I liked the story and the characters were well drawn, but the narrator did not do justice to the male lead.

    I think I would recommend reading this as opposed to listening or, as I did, get the whisper-sync version so you can give the characters the voices you like.

    Marnie is just 35 when her boyfriend, Brian, drops dead of a sudden heart attack. Stunned by his death, Marnie finds her greatest grief is for Troy, Brian’s son whom she has raised as her own since he was a kindergartener. When he is reclaimed by his train wreck of a birth mother, Troy’s departure drives Marnie to a grief group at the local rec center. There she finds unexpected allies, three strangers who join her in an impulsive road trip from Wisconsin to Las Vegas to reconnect with Troy.

    Story

    Four women who barely know each other decided to drive from Wisconsin to Las Vegas to check in on Marnie's not really stepson. Rita is grieving over the unsolved murder of her daughter, Marnie is grieving over the death of her fiance of ten years and losing his 14 year old son to the boy's mother, Laverne a shut-in and Marnie's never seen neighbor and landlady, and Jazzy, a free spirit who speaks to the dead.

    This is a really good story, although it drags a bit in the middle.

    Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math-whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can't afford to pay for. That's Jess' life in a nutshell - until an unexpected knight-in-shining-armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess' knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages...maybe ever.

    Story

    This is the story of Ed, the rich guy software tycoon, Jess, the poor mother whose husband had walked out two years before leaving behind their math whiz daughter and his goth son who is being bullied by the Fishers.

    This is the story of Tansy, the math whiz who has the opportunity to go to a private school if only her mother can raise the 10 percent not covered by the generous scholarship the school is offering, her half brother who is kind and good, but scared and unhappy, and Norman, the big drooling dog.

    This is the story of a car trip from England to Scotland to attend the competition and what can happen when bad things turn good and then bad and then perhaps back to good. It's about how hard it is for people who have nothing to get on their feet.

    The four person narration team really enhances the already great story.

    Miranda Fenster was known as the Fairy Tale Miss during the one disastrous London season that convinced her she would never have a happily-ever-after. But when her brother's love match is thwarted by the impossibly proper Duke of Kerstone, Miranda sets off to convince the duke to champion her brother's cause for love. Unfortunately, he is too proper to consider love a suitable reason for marriage, and too proper not to marry Miranda when they find themselves compromised.

    Story

    The Fairy Tale Bride is the story of Miranda Fenster, her large financially struggling family, and the Duke of Kerstone. The Duke marries Miranda, a believer in fairy tales and HEA, after they spent an innocent night in an abandoned cabin, in order to not compromise her reputation, but then decides they must not consummate the marriage, as he is planning to leave.

    Miranda, on the other hand, thinks her new husband is ill, and has decided to do whatever she can to make him live.

    What was good about this book is the humor, the flawed people, the narrator, and the mystery. If you like Julie Garwood's early books and Judith McNaught you will enjoy The Fairy Tale Bride.

    Gallery owner Tern Maiski has always had a way with men, but the one she gave her heart to disappeared without a word. Now he's competing alongside her and four others in a high-tech treasure hunt, and her pride isn't the only thing on the line. So is her life. He doesn't play by the rules... Geophysicist Gage Fallon's relationship with Tern has been cataclysmic from the beginning. He cared too much, too fast, and their passion threatened to consume him.

    Story

    If ever you go to get on a plane and you have slept with all of the men on the flight, I have just one word for you . . . RUN.

    That's what happens to Tern, but she doesn't heed the little voice in the back of her head telling her this is a bad idea. The group has been hand picked for a geo-caching contest and they are dropped in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness. First they find that all their survival equipment is gone (phones, matches, food, etc), then one of the contestants gets murdered. The rest of the group decides it might be a good idea to hike out to civilization. It soon becomes a race against time and a murderer.

    I really like Tiffinie Helmer's books, this is the first one I have listened to and it was very enjoyable. The narrator was good and Tiffinie's gift of making her characters seem real is excellent.

    Story

    I like Amy Rubinate and that was one reason I ordered this book, the trouble for me was the narration. When I read that there are two narrators (man and woman) I expect the man to read the man's narration and the woman to read the woman's narration, that is not what happened with this book. In this book, every other chapter was in the person of one of the characters and the narrator read the entire chapter. It took a lot away from the story, in my opinion.

    Other than that, it was a pretty good story, with a unique premise. I think I would like it much better if I had read the book and if the story moved along a little more quickly.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.

    Story

    Julia Whelan is one of my favorite narrators, so anything she reads gets a second look from me when I am shopping. She never disappoints.

    Flat-Out Love is a different type of love story and centers around Julie, a college Freshman who is living with the family of her mother's college roommate. This family has issues, the only one who seems normal is the brainy, middle child, Matt.

    Celeste, the youngest child and only daughter, never goes anywhere without a life sized cutout of her oldest brother Finn, who is traveling the world doing volunteer work and having adventures. Matt is, for all intents and purposes, in charge of Celeste and her day-to-day life and when Julie (wise beyond her years) moves in she picks up the slack and tries to bring Celeste out of her shell and help her get over her phobias.

    The book takes us through the school year and you will really get to know these people, it just takes time for the truth to come out.

    You will be entertained.

    The first time Eby Pim saw Lost Lake, it was on a picture postcard. Just an old photo and a few words on a small square of heavy stock, but when she saw it, she knew she was seeing her future. That was half a lifetime ago. Now Lost Lake is about to slip into Eby’s past. Her husband, George, is long passed. Most of her demanding extended family are gone.

    I started listening to Lost Lake in the car and kept listening until I heard the last word. It was just that kind of story, I couldn't wait to find out how the author wrapped up all the loose ends. She did not disappoint me.

    Lost Lake is a story of healing and deciding how (and if) to move forward. The characters are interesting and the plot lines are, in many cases, surprising. I will be seeking other books by this author.

    Billionaire Max Hamilton thought he was finally starting to find contentment, more than two years after losing his wife Mia in a tragic drowning accident. He'd been reunited with a sister he hadn't realized existed. Finally he had family again, a reprieve from the pain and loneliness that had haunted him since his devastating loss. Yeah...he was as happy as a man could be, considering he had lost the other half of his soul and most of his heart when fate had torn his wife away from him. Or so he believed...until the day he rescued a mysterious woman in the park.

    Max is the best choice by far.

    This is the third installment in the series and is by far the best. There is a good plot line and the characters of Max and Mia are flawed but likeable.

    Story

    Facebook had this scrolling on my feed the other day and when I read the blurb it looked kind of interesting, plus it was free. I thought what the heck, I like free. I bought it and discovered that the free part was only the first third of the book, which I find really annoying. Still I wanted to know what happened to Simon and Kara (well mostly Kara) so I bought the rest of the book (99 cents, can't even get coffee for 99 cents). Then because the whispersync version was only $1.99, I got that too, so I could continue knitting my sock.

    So what did I like about the book? The characters were pretty well drawn and both had compelling backstories.

    What I did not like about the book was the continual use of f**k, f**king, f**k me, etc., seriously, it seemed like if the author didn't use the word at least five times on each page, she went back and rewrote. We get that these two were hot for each other, but there are other words. And her description of Kara and Simon having sex were at times laughable.

    The narrator was pretty good, although I would have liked it more if she could have picked up the speed just a tad bit.

    I like my books to have a little more story, a little more character development, and just a little less crudeness. But that's just me.
