    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.

    Billionaire Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he tries never to do anything that he's sorry about…except for what he had done in the past to Dr. Madeline Reynolds. Many years and regrets later, Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying Maddie's best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make things right...

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes! Sam's character.


    Do you think Heart Of The Billionaire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    most likely not. I am sure it will be a very similar story...

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Billionaire's Obsession: The Complete Collection to be better than the print version?

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    i would see Kara with more strong character, with some kind of spine...

    Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

    It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly. But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable....

    What would have made Down London Road better?

    it should sound more realistic...


    Has Down London Road turned you off from other books in this genre?


    probably... most likely there will be the same beautiful people (i mean absolutely all of them are gorgeous and beautiful) and very predictable story.


    What didn’t you like about Elle Newlands’s performance?

    Men’s voices sounded very awful. it is very hard to imagine a beautiful looking guy with this very strange voice.


    What character would you cut from Down London Road?

    nobody

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fifty Shades Darker to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Darker?

    Again... it is very hard to say, it was completed all in one go. Could not stop listening.


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

    She is just the best narrator! I will look forward to listen her other performances.


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

    Unconditional love!

    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.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    well


    What character would you cut from The Billionaire's Salvation?

    not sure


    Any additional comments?

    all the stories of this series are so much alike and predictable. Sex episodes are all the same, you just get tired of it…
