    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Sadie Townsend is known by all as the Ice Princess and she’s worked hard to earn her reputation. Her father, a now-incarcerated drug lord, has kept her under his thumb her whole life and she’s learned enough from living in his world to give everyone the cold shoulder.

    I was rocking along with this series until this book. Kidnappings, shootouts,car explosions you name it, but none as bad as what Sadie face in this book. I cry for dear Sadie. Not everyone can bounce back from being through such emotional trauma as being raped to actually be in a normal relationship with someone (Even though I would not call any of these relationship normal!!). Then again only a true Rock Chick could pull that off. These girls are in a relationships with men with bad ass jobs so they got to be hard as nail to deal yeah. Credit worthy listen folks. I am in love with this series. Kristen Ashley and Susannah Jones together makes this series a blast.

    P.S. would totally watch the TV Series Rock Chicks :P

    Meet Shane Baxter. Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn't just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he was the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn't care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there's a new player in the game, and she's much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

    The irony about this book, I was so waiting for the predictable ending about a last minute call to save Sam Cayhall life even ten minutes to Sam's death, but was hit with the cold reality like everyone else in the story that Sam Cayhall was gonna died. This book is touching, emotional, and too realistic but maybe Sam really did deserve to died in the end BUT isn't the state a murderer now? After all, in the face of God, no sin is greater, but who are we to determine such. I was disappointed that the man in the shadows was not revealed to the world but I understand that Mr. Grisham wanted this to be more than an audio-book, he wanted real....

    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.

    Dahlia was certain she had found true love and met her "Once in a Lifetime" when she reconnected with River. But Dahlia's world comes crashing down when someone from her past resurfaces, and all of River's carefully hidden secrets are exposed. River wants to show Dahlia that life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass - it's about dancing in the rain! But how many times can one broken heart be mended? Will River and Dahlia be able to face the turmoil together or will they be torn apart?

    Torn is just as good as the first book, she cleared up all the mysteries and leave just enough hanging to set the foundation for her third book, excellent writing, i felt the emotions in this book. I also liked how she never protrayed Ben as a bad guy, I felt so sorry for Ben and I completely love his journals. I hope she got Bell and Ben hooking up by the end of this series, I felt like those two have a deep connection, apart from sharing a child. River and Dal, what a Love connection those two have! All in all I highly recommend you listen to this book.

    Collide in all fairness was a good book, However, the story of Emily Cooper and Gavin Blake could have been completed with two additional chapters at the end of Collide. I was really waiting for the new twist and turns in Pulse but it never came. With that said I was happy The baby was Gavin's, because Dillon did not want to be a father in the first place, but Pulse was really not necessary.

    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.

    What did you love best about Wallbanger?

    So many lol moments in this book, kept me awake at work with a grin on my face! But it would be the scene where the cat attacked Purina hah-aha, now that's Love at first sight!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Caroline, what a drama queen, I have lost my "O" and she is seriously cut up about it too!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Simon was in the process of helping Caroline find her "O" again and was viciously attacked by the cat! now that's seriously funny, nearly fell off the bed, seriously in the middle of a sex scene!!!! Seriously though the cat held his own in this book!


    If you could rename Wallbanger, what would you call it?

    " The case of the missing "O"- How Caroline got her grove back"

    What if a "Once in a Lifetime" could happen twice? Suffering from a past full of tragedy, Dahlia London's soul has been left completely shattered. Happily ever after is a far cry from reality in her world. But when she is reconnected with her past, the bonds that form are irrefutable. When River Wilde, lead singer of The Wilde Ones, comes back into Dahlia's life, the intensity that fires their relationship combined with underlying feelings that have never died lead her to believe she has met her soul mate.

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

    I would give this book a five star rating, why the author was able to set up a good foundation for book 2 and that was a hell of a cliff hanger at the end!!! makes you really anticipate book 2, which I hope will be coming really soon.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt the pain at the start of the book, I really did not anticipate that the guy was still alive, even though it was clear that he knew he was gonna die. Also love the reconnection between River and Dahlia, Do I believe in love at first sight, probably not, but I am prepare for the emotional roll a coaster book 2 gonna bring.
