    Girls like Neve Slater don’t get gorgeous guys like William. But William’s been in L A for three years, and Neve’s been slimming down in preparation for his return. Then her sister Celia points out that if Neve wants William to think she's an experienced love-goddess then she’d better get some experience - a man to show her the ropes, like Celia’s colleague Max. And since he’s not Neve’s type, she certainly won’t fall for him...

    Would you listen to You Don't Have to Say You Love Me again? Why?

    Yes!!! without a dout this is the kind of book that allows you to see your self in the female character (Neve), there were moments in the story that had me laughing, moments of anger and frustration and moments when I knew exactly how Neve was feeling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think the best thing about this story is that it's an honest one, I've read books were the female character has overweight problems and the male character falls in love with the girl, tells her she is beautiful in every way and that he accepts her in all her glory.
    Come on people !!!! life is not like that, the truth is that for overweight girls and women in general sometimes life is not that simple and this book tells it like it is.
    This book is defenitly realistic but it also has a beautiful and credible love story


    What about Julie Maisey’s performance did you like?

    Yes I like her performance, I think she did a great job.


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

    Maybe not in one sitting because it had parts that were a little dificult for me to listen and I had to take a moment to think about them.

    Story

    I'm not a huge fan of historical romance but Julie Garwood has a way of writting that gets to you, the story is gripping and the characters are very well developed. Although there were times when I got very frustated with the male character and wanted to slap him (really hard) just to shot him up (chauvinistic pig) but i guess that is part of a good book, when you get so wrapped up that you started empathizing with the characters.
    Rosalyn Landon did an exellent job with the voices and accents, very good.
    All in all I recommened this book for everyone, historical romance fan or not.
    I also recommend from this author The secret and Ransom really great books.

    This book defenitetly wasn't for me. The premise is really good but by the middle of it I started getting really annoyed by all the flashback in the story.
    I like to have a little background on the characters in order to understand them better but in this case it was too much.

    Would you listen to Ignite Me again? Why?

    Mmmmm.... yes I would.
    The 3 books in the serie are very good, although there were times in the story that I got very annoyed with the characters specially Adam and sometimes Juliette too.
    But Warner definetily overshadowed the other two. What an amazing character !!!
    I wouldn't have given 4 stars to the book if not for Warner.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love dystopians. Everything about the end of the world as we know it, a new regime and how the main characters survive the challenges set upon them is very apealing to me.
    So for that reason only this books had me from the first chapters of the first book add to that the well develope plot, the settings and the interaccion between the 3 main characters and you couldn't go wrong with the books
    This was a good ending for the trilogy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Julliete finally tells Warner how she feels.


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

    Yes there were several.
    The best one for me was the ending.
    I simply love happy endings.

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

    Yes, I definitely recommend this book.It's diferent from the paranormal stories I read or listen lately. the way the autor unfolds the story and develops the characters is very realistic and believable, and by the end of the book I was captivate


    What did you like best about this story?

    The others. The way the author describes the way they think and feel is very unique.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't know... Maybe one of them was when Simon Wolfgard was telling someone that he really hates when the female humans thought of him as a romance novel werewolf and so he will fall in love with them !!! When in truth he only sees them as food or prey. LOL


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

    Everything in this book was very good. The only but is that I'll have to wait months for the next one.

    What made the experience of listening to Open Minds the most enjoyable?

    I have to say that I took a chance with this one, wasn't sure if I was going to like it.
    I'm sooo happy I did. T
    Being a fan of dystopian and sci-fi in young adult books this was exactly the type of book I was hoping for lots of surprises, a well-thought-out plot and great characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kira Moore tough heroine and very likeable.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good trilogy

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

    GRIPPING, FAST PACE AND UNFORGETTABLE This book has everything, it's the right combination of romance and action with an amazing ending. Actually all three books are great.Well done, it was worth the wait.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoy stories where you forget all that is happening around you. Stories that are so well written that you start to empathize with the characters and their journeys. Stories that made you laugh and cry. Stories that you just CAN NOT turn off.
    This series is one of those and this last audio book is the perfect conclusion for an amazing Trilogy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last one. I LOVE happy endings


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

    Yes, it made me cry and laugh


    Any additional comments?

    I happily recommend this book

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    NO SPOILERS
    I simply don't know were to begin the story was slow pace, repetitive and It had nothing to do with the previous books (witch were great) I kept waiting for the story to pick up but it never did. And although I really wouldn’t have minded the slow pace and the turn the author gave to the story to explain what was outside the city in exchange for a great ending what I got was just so, and I mean, SO disappointing that I can't believe it . WHY? What was the point to end it that way? So to answer the question I would say that in order to give 3 stars to this book (don't think it could reach 4 stars) I would definitely change the last chapters.


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The ending.
    IT. IS. NOT. FAIR. I feel betrayed, angry, sad and frustrated.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I’ve heard Emma Galvin in other audio books and I think she’s an exellent performer.
    I haven't heard Aaron Stanford before but think he made a good job.


    What character would you cut from Allegiant?

    All the characters in the bureau, specially David


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely DO NOT recommended this book I just can’t do it.
