    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

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

    I loved hearing the narrator she was GREAT! I think Id prefer audio over reading.


    What other book might you compare Wallbanger to and why?

    Cant think of any but Im usually listening to Anita blake or sookie stackhouse but Loved the internal babble Caroline has and I was constantly laughing at some of the more explicit babble over the O.


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

    My first book she has done but Im a fan!


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

    Yes I hated it when I had to stop listening lol


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a listen! Sexy and funny with great characters!

    It happens quietly one August morning. As dawn's shimmering light drenches the humid Iowa air, two families awaken to find their little girls have gone missing in the night. Now these families are tied by the question of what happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in the silence of unspoken family secrets.

    Ben because he wanted nothing more than to be the protector of his little sister and mother.

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

    Informative, Scary and Great!


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is no one thing I liked best. This is a great listen. Narrator did an amazing job and the story def stands on its own. I couldnt listen at night as just too creepy.

    When Ed says "Ive never met an atheist in a haunted house"


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

    Too many to count! This book is informative and a hell of a ride.. no pun intended. Anyone even thinking of playing with the occult NEEDS to listen/read this book!

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they'd become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their 16-year-old son, Adam, has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate, Spencer Hill they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: "Just stay quiet and all safe."

    Meanwhile, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death...and he wasn't alone.

    Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he'll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote...and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.
