    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Freed in three words, what would they be?

    Love, wealth, and acceptance


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

    Gosh, there are so many things memorable moments in this book.. Christian coming to terms with what he and "Ms. Robinson's" relationship was inappropriate. 2) Jack Hyde black mailing Ana because of his jealous towards the Grey family.. 3) Ana putting her life and the life of her baby on the line to ensure the Grey family would be safe... Seriously the entire series had a lot of memorable moments.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    One of my favorite scenes is when they are in Aspen and Ana, Kate and Mia are dancing and the big blonde giant makes a move on Ana and she stand up for herself and her marriage.. Another is when she tells Christian she is pregnant and he freaks out but she sets him straight on what's important. I also liked when Ana put her life on the line to ensure that the Grey Family was safe.


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

    "I love you and I am not going to leave"


    Any additional comments?

    This is an awesome book series. If you are looking for the erotic nature of the book then that is what you are going to get but if you are looking for a true love story and seeing a person evolve and come to terms with the past, present and future then you will love this book.

    Clare Harrington is considered a miracle, but everything that's happened since she recovered from a three-year coma has been something less than miraculous. Her 18-year-old daughter, Kate, a talented singer and songwriter, sets out to pursue her musical dreams in Nashville. Her parents have agreed to allow Kate to spend a year there, but they couldn't have anticipated Kate falling in love with a much older man. Her newly divorced parents are forced back together to confront their wayward daughter.

    Story
    Would you listen to Marking Time again? Why?

    Yes, the story was awesome. Just to imagine yourself being someone in a coma for three years and to wake up one day to your life as you know it gone and you are left to pick up the pieces in the same house.

    It's a lesson in forgiving and moving on.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clare and Aiden.. You have Clare who was in a coma for three years after begin raped and feeling no hope in life to having a husband in love with another women who was pregnant by him and who took care of your daughters while you were in the coma. She had to figure out where she belonged with their life after coming home to a house her husband had built for her but also shared it with another women.

    Then you have Aiden who once had a wife and soon to be a father with a hopeful medical career as a Cardiolgist and to have that taken all away due to cancer is heart breaking..

    The two of them together make an awesome couple.


    Which character – as performed by Holly Fielding – was your favorite?

    Clare.


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

    When Maggie had her accident and Clare faced that kind of trauma to no know whether her youngest daughter was going to wake up and to have her middle daughter reunited with her family after her father had disowned her. I cried for sure.

    Also when Aiden visited the grave site for the first time where is wife and son were buried.


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome book and looking forward to the third book.

    Love is the last thing on Jack Harrington's mind when he sets out to meet Andi Walsh's flight. Recently back to work after spending more than a year tending to his comatose wife, Jack is focused on getting through each day and caring for his three daughters. However, the moment he sets eyes on Andrea Walsh, the interior designer who has come to decorate the hotel his company is building in Newport, Rhode Island, Jack begins to wonder if Andi might be his second chance.

    Would you listen to Treading Water again? Why?

    Yes, the story was awesome, but the narrator needed to be more theatrical.


    What about Holly Fielding’s performance did you like?

    She was good but needed to put more feelings into her performance.


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

    Yes, it is an awesome story about love and how some circumstances will change someone's life.

    Looking forward to listening to the second book and see where the characters take us.

    Where does Delicious rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it's an 9 out of 10..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alyssa and Luke.. What a power couple. You have two people who are fighting their own demands and yet a drawn to each other. Alyssa was true surprise, she is a survivor, loving, well educated and ambitious and Like is talented, loving, and compassionate.

    The combination of the two of them is powerful, exciting and erotic. To have a love like they have after all the drama would be awesome to have.


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

    Dramatic, good story teller.


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

    I had a lot of laughs and tears but most of all I felt it was a story that developed when Luke and Alyssa agreed to share a night full of erotic passion. Alyssa couldn't get enough and Luke was afraid to admit he wanted someone like her.

    I think it was a slap in the face to Luke when Alyssa turned to Tyler after being attacked by Peter..

    Overall this book brought two people together demands and all with their past and built a loving and passionate relationship for their future.

    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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend for the hopeless romantic to read with a modern twist.


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

    I guess my favorite part of the book is when Ana "drunk dialed him" and he demanded she tell him where she was and she hung up.. Then guess who appears Christian Grey at a time where one of her best friends Jose Roderguez tries to make a move on her and he steps in... That was the first of many nights they would share together.


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

    No this was my first but i like her performance in this series


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book, it's very erotic true but set that aside it is a true love story!
