    When Kyle Calloway died, he took a part of Nell with him. She wasn't the only one left to pick up the pieces, however; Kyle's death left a gaping hole in the hearts and lives of his parents and his older brother Colton, and ultimately broke the will of the girl he loved.

    Everybody thinks they know Cole's story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole's darkest secret - his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel's life. Can this sinner be saved?

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

    I only listened...but I bet it is!


    What other book might you compare Sinner to and why?

    This is a stand alone, but it does have the same vibe as the Shiver series....Cole is a great character....


    What does Dan Bittner and Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Dan, he is an excellent Narrator...I don't care for Emma....I wouldn't openly seek her work to listen to...but I wouldn't not listen to a book she narrates....I listened to her narrate the Divergent series also..she is not a bad narrator....just not my fave...she's kind of flat, in my opinion...


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

    hate this question...moving on...


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book from Cole's POV....he is a mess of a guy who really has changed and just wants to be loved....he loves his music, and the freedom it gives him to be himself...but it means nothing to him really if he cant have Isabelle..and Isabelle is just as messed up...but together they complete each other....I would really like another book to wrap this up....but we shall see...

    Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by Four: A Divergent Collection, a companion volume that includes four pre-Divergent stories told from Tobias' point of view. Listeners first encountered Tobias as "Four" in Divergent. His voice is an integral part of Allegiant. Listeners will find more of this charismatic character's backstory told from his own perspective in Four: A Divergent Collection.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

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

    I dont know who would ever think this book was amazing..the writing is sooooo terrible...are we sure this author is over 18? She writes like a teenager...


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

    NO....I will not be reading anymore of her books...just UGH!!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was atrocious! But she didn't have much to work with...


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    None...it is just a bad book...the movie was good though....lol


    Any additional comments?

    First off, I would have never attempted this book if I would not have seen the movie...I saw it, then had high hope for this book...but 6 minutes in I was regretting it...its poorly written...and badly narrated...and I will not continue this series..I like the concept..I like Christian....the Book Anna is a twit..the on screen Anna is good...Too many Oh my's and inner goddess references...this was just something I forced my way through to say I did...I have never, ever had such a tortured listen...the sex did not bother me one bit and there were a few parts I kinda liked...but overall this book is sooooooooo horrible...if you have any reservations in listening to this or not..go with your gut and avoid like the plague!!! I have never written a bad review of an audible book...so this will go with all the firsts in this book...LOL Can I have my credit back please?

    Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

    Would you listen to Bound by Flames again? Why?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bound by Flames?

    I liked the ending...it was hilarious...Vlad is quite the character....all moody and broody..and then at the end we find out he really is kind of a dork....lol


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    I Love Tavia..she is one of my fave narrators...she is good no matter what the story is....I could listen to her all day long...and sometimes I have...lol


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

    I did feel bad for Leila a lot of the time,but also she annoyed me...I mean seriously,,,where is the strong woman from the other books? She didn't get tough until near the end...I think she has a bad case of PTSD....I found myself rolling my eyes at her several times...Maybe she should have stayed mortal....


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book, I listened to it all in 1 day, I would have given it 5 stars across the board if Leila's character wouldn't have turned into such a wimp at times...and she whined and was overly dramatic...not the narration....I love Tavia..just the character itself...in the other books she was a tough chick...But I was never bored and love this series and I am so glad there will be a next one...this is not the end people...look at Jeaniene's website..there will be another one...I also like how we got a visit from several other of our beloved Night Huntress characters...over all a very fun and entertaining listen...thumbs up an a recommend from me....Jeaniene and Tavia are a great team!!!

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    I think this book was my fave of the 3...I quite enjoyed this series..It was a wonderful love story, that had true feelings, even with all the teenage angst in book 2...There was nothing far fetched, even with the werewolf aspect and I was completely wrapped up in it...As soon as I get my new credits...you better believe I will be listening to Sinner too....2 huge thumbs up and a highly recommend..I will be checking out this authors other work too!! Really good Happy ending.....I loved it!!!

    Oh yes...tears near the end...and there were some cute funny parts...


    Any additional comments?

    Again I wasn't sure if I was going to like this 2nd story in the beginning...I don't like it when the switch narrators on me...and switching the narrator for Sam could have ruined this one for me...but I gave it a chance and ended up loving this book I think a little more than the first one...this story is a little more raw in my opinion and I will be starting #3 right away! If you enjoyed the first one...you will love this one too...2 thumbs up!
