    Would you consider the audio edition of Rare and Precious Things to be better than the print version?

    I always love both.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the both overcome such adversity to love one another as they always have.


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

    These two together are excellent, I could not wait for this book to hit, Now that I have listened to it as well as read, I am as positive as I was from reading it, It's so beautiful and tells and portrays true and the unconditional enduring love they have for one another. I loved it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Get ready to go through so many emotions, have tissues ready in some parts and ready for laughter in others. Either way, it's captivating,


    Any additional comments?

    These books have been such a joy to read and listen to. I have always said these books were top notch reading and listening. Don't waste a second, or credit to enjoy this one. Loved learning about the Somerset Estate they bought and it's history. And how it applied to them, All of this book has it all, love, sex, mystery, and the horror of what they had to endure with the past. And how they came to put it all to rest.
    Ethan and Bryan are two people who find each other, and it works, it's original, and an excellent read. Kudo's to the author, and all she has done to make this book for me, One of my top five.. Thank you

    Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man — Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Some like it, but I could not keep focused, one moment it was on, the next they are tearing out hearts, Nothing was good but a couple of encounters. Trace is manwhore, she chases after him, I don't know, it's up to anyone that likes to read about men abusing women, the might.


    What was most disappointing about L. A. Fiore’s story?

    She's good with putting together words and great with quotes, but not a story of this magnitude. I'm sure, no i know her vocabulary is well versed, but gosh, this story was not a well written book. it was all over the map. And women chase men like that after treatment like he did her? come on ladies. we are worth more than that.


    How could the performance have been better?

    just not do it. This book was not to be on any shelves.. I just could not take the entire thing. We as a group would look at one another while reading it from a book club and be completely misguided by the actions of the lady of this book. Come on.. who does this?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beautifully Damaged?

    Nearly all of them


    Any additional comments?

    This has to be the worst book I have read on here. I am not only warning you, but letting you know now, if your are sleep deprived, ready this and you fall right off.. I could not keep my eyes open, stay focused, nor cared to. It was terrible. It was painful to listen to, and it hurts thinking about it. No way, I'm going for my credit back. Just not a good read or listen.

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

    Therese Plummer's performance are top rate, she can do men's voices, children s, of course all the women's. She's one of the best.


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

    I love The Promise, it was all she it would be, I cannot not wait for the next book.. I started listening to Robyn book with Thunder Point, and will be so saddened when they end.

    Once again another great book from Robyn Karr, it is magnificent, great to listen to.. Now waiting on the next one. Scott and Payton have two things in common. the love of medicine. They fell in love, and it was a sweet sensual love. Kudo's to Robyn for writing this and introducing us to Scott and to others along the way.It's worth the credit, buy it if you must but read the Promise, it's wonderful.

    James and Bianca's story draws to a close in the explosive conclusion to the Up In The Air Trilogy. After a short but earnest courtship, Bianca can no longer deny her feelings for James, and though she's tried her hardest, she can't help but see that he cares deeply for her, as well. In a completely uncharacteristic move, she has put aside her misgivings and agreed to live with the enigmatic billionaire. Is her leap of faith the beginning of something wonderful, or is it too much, too fast?

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

    Oh my... to my friends, neighbors, co workers, family, and any who asks about good books. and the all important love of, and anyone that can't seem to get enough of RK Lilley's work, especially is this trilogy. I have to admit, I accidentally fell into this last installment not knowing it was even on the coming soon list. But once I did, I shook with anticipation. it took me weeks to get through this book, not because of lack of such great withing but because of time and duties at home. I had a lot of personal reason's I could not give my all to it. But each night late, I gave a couple of chapters and savored it's contents. Waiting until I could get back to it. Recommend? Is that a trick question?. Anyone that read the first two. has got to finish with this. But let me say James and Bianca are put through some painstaking ordeals But as love would have it, they always seem to bring it home to our HEA.I simply LOVED it. .


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grounded?

    Without a doubt, the near ending and ending. such beauty, and so needed for them. Enjoy


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

    Everything, She did so much to this, Thank you Elizabeth


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

    Yes, and plan on it again, Since my life personally was in an uproar, and could not give my all to as I normally did last year while reading, I plan to take some time and read it without interruption while on vacation soon and remember all of this once more.


    Any additional comments?

    James and B grow and become close through all that she had denied herself growing up homeless and vowing off all James had to offer. She finally comes to know he loves her, and lets that love heal her in all ways. It's sexy, somewhat out of sorts in some area's but strong enough for you to get some of the most grueling encounters they have to over come...together.. James loves and protects her is so many rare and unusual of circumstances You have to stop and say, Just how much can one couple endure? But they prevail. Remarkably. . We get to learn how and why he fell so deeply in love for her, and his words brings tears streaming down my face, from the moment he lays eyes on her. why he choose the life style for her and why it works for them. It's written all over her. Her best friend Stephan is a intricate leader and add substance to this book like he did with all the rest. His love for her also is undying and never sways. B is a remarkable women, loves by a man who only wants to make her happy, And she let's him finally do so without such a fight.. And B finds he fight in her as well when so many want to take James down. But not without a fight with B at his side.
    Read the book, it finishes the story and tells a remarkable tale of a couple with great friends who only want the best for them all.. You won't forget it nor want to put it down.. I loved it . Way to go Ms. Kelly. Waiting for more of such great work from you.

    With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

    If you could sum up The Chance in three words, what would they be?

    I LOVE IT


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ERIC~ he says it through the entire book.. Second chances do come our way.. And the Chance we take, is costly at times, and we much pay the price for what ever do we do in life, but it teaches us, we hope not to make the same mistakes again and we learn from them.. If you read this book.. Listen to what the Judge tells him ( Eric) when he is a teenager about the cost of being and doing wrong, and what is can cost you being at the wrong place and the wrong time..when you know better.. Eric was and it cost him time.....but the lesson here is what the judge says.... I'ts really good..


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

    Therese Plummer is an excellent reader of Robyn's Books. Especially those from the Thunderpoint Series. She knows just how to bring everything to life with each charater.. she don't just read, she put's emotion, and herself into these books.. I have to say she is about the best when is comes to anything you wanted to bring forth in a book.. love it Way to Go.. Ms. Plummer.


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

    Yes, when Lane is helping her father, whom she has been estranged from because of an arrgurment at Christmas time.. But the times she spends with him brings so much to light.


    Any additional comments?

    Once again Robyn Carr has a hit.. I have been waiting what seems like a year for anything from the Thunderpoint Series.. I love the town, (to bad I can't move there) and the personality she's given her new characters Lane and Eric is great,, They have one thing in common..which you will find out by reading the book.. it's good...
    Robyn Carr gives us detailed scenes about who and what all Thunderpoint resident are and look like.... so that when we close our eyes you see them.. Her description of everyone is and always has been so articulated that I feel like I would know them if I went into town if it existed..
    In this book, she brings Lane, the Hero FBI Operative who filtrated the cult near Thunderpoint and was shot saving them all but one, in the last of the series. Another great book.. She moved to Thunderpoint to heal, that arm. what was shot and operated on and she meets the gorgeous Eric, who can't get enough of her from day one.. He loves her sass and straight forwardness and wonders if he would ever have a chance of her looking his way.. But don't count Lane out.. she is a looker alright, and looking herself.. She loves the town and stays for a while to just relax and heal.. Things she loves is good people, her family, and loves to cook. but at the same time, she is looking for someone to help her get over what she went through with the rescue..In other words the cold nights and maybe to keep her warm as well.. Then She meets Eric, who we all know he is the x boyfriend of Max's (the sheriff's) wife. And they have a 16 year daughter. He came to TP to help her through college. Or at least choose one. He loves his daughter but would not mind having Lane near him. either for dinner or just kiss her once.. He is so smitten by her and she him.. . But he would never be that brazen. But Lane is not shy and goes after what ever she wants.. and Eric looks good to her.. The one liners they have in this is amazing.. Lane is one great addition to Thunderpoint. .
    . Not a small town girl.. she waits.. and finally just goes after him saying.. If you can't ask me out.. I will do it. Eric has and owns a Garage, he and Lane just become a hot couple. They adore and compliment each other so.. But trouble is always somewhere.. But it's not where you think.. It's in Lane's family. she has a twin brother who took after Daddy, and is a doctor, but because she is FBI Daddy think she is blue collar worker and just missed the mark. and he don't appreciate what she does and who she saves.. But Eric, who is always got her back, and always there to help her through anything, listens and helps her along the way..
    Also each and every one of our other TP characters from the start, we are brought up to speed with what is going on with them.. I love it when a author keeps us updated in the series.. WE learn some things about who we always wondered about..like out sexy Realtor who is always looking at every man.. Not saying.. gotta read about her.. It's good.. I so enjoyed this book, planning on buying the book and reading this time.. The Thunder Point Series has been enjoyable from day one.. It never disappoints and can't wait for the next one to arrive. Who doesn't want to live in Thunder Point.. where everyone is welcomed and everyone;s problems are as big as our own.... It just goes to show you how we can deal with them and how everything is approached in different ways.. Give you room to think.. . Again, the book is worth what ever you have to do to enjoy it. And oh by the way.. Some great , great Hot Bedroom scenes in this one.. Reminds me of the Cooper and Sara when they met.. And it's Hot.. I will say that.. .

    What made the experience of listening to A Million Guilty Pleasures the most enjoyable?

    knowing the difference between being loved, making love, and wanting love in your life.


    What other book might you compare A Million Guilty Pleasures to and why?

    I don't like to compare books, I would like to say, they mostly take shape and go... making you a part of that world. this book, had a great start, it's true, so this one had to really live up to some great standards. And i think it did


    Which character – as performed by Rockwell Davis and Rubyyy Jones – was your favorite?

    There were to many in book 2.. I can't say I like anyone better than the other.. It was that good,


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I have no idea. several come to mine.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to say, this book was good.. I must add, this book has and never been one to be shy about sex and the amount of sexual activity between these two. Hey, I have always said give me a good hot book like this and i'ts got my attention. But it's a good story line, and one that keep you wanting for these two to find and hold on to the HEA.. They only love one another, but find love outside of just themselves, being unselfish, and helping others, and finding out about friendships, family and the importance of being one that can help and does. It's also about love of one's self. that comes to play also.. I enjoyed the series, and it could not of ended any better than it did.and yes....this book ends here.. Once again, it's worth what ever or how ever you want to listen to this. Stick with it.. It tells a beautiful story of love, how to love and what love and greed together will bring you. Eventually.
    Enjoy'

Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    The books was amazing..Samantha Young once again takes you to her home and makes you want to move there.. Maybe this books should of been somewhere in the middle of her series, but it works. She brings all her books into each book and keep you right to where they were during the moment you with this character. Olivia, is so hurt, so confused and so shy, She has what I call a block because of her youth of what she had to go through. But if comes forward and it's explained.. I love Olivia. and Nate, who don't want a Nate in her life to ground her.. Amazing read.. I say buy, credit any thing, but get this books.

    Ok, what I said was harsh, but come on.. from the very start, you know the scenes from the books they refer to. It won't be shuttle either.. I seen every book I have read on my own and Audible in this one book. Except for the end, and even then a story from a books comes to mind, it's not them. If you get this book prepared to go back in time.. All the way back to Twilight. No kidding.. Just could of been outstanding, but missed the mark, I listen to things and was like WHAT? that was in so and so.. So you choose, it's worth a credit, but would not buy this. Disappointed, and I thought the series was going to be about these two characters, NOPE, going in a different direction and I am not willing to risk what I went thru the first time.
