Publisher's Summary

Laura has perfected the art of time management. Her tightly watched schedule is the only thing that keeps her busy life from slipping into chaos. After all, not only is she a devoted mother to two children, she is the head of advertising for a real estate development company a growing business that she started with her equally busy husband, Alan.

Fourteen years into their marriage, Laura notices that Alan has been emotionally distant, and wonders if there is something going on. Has Laura's meticulous scheduling gone too far? Has Alan given up? When she confronts him with her fears about their marriage, she receives a surprising response. Now, the question is whether she will be able to take a kinky leap of faith in her marriage. Will her friends on Éveiller Drive be there for her?

    "Laura and Alan"
    Any additional comments?

    This series of short stories follows the women on Éveiller Drive. They all have their real life issues with their husbands, and as it does happen they lost their spark. What is a girl to do other than talk to their friends and formulate a plan on how to get that spark lit again. I think most women at one time or anther can relate to all the insecurities that these women face. The stories are short, but extremely steamy. This one follows Laura and Alan. They have been married for 14 years, and things has gotten a bit stale. Alan is tired of the same scheduled lackluster encounter. Can she let go of her control and let Alan have a spicy playful night?

    "Sexy Short Story!!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Lara. I could relate to her in so many ways.


    Which character – as performed by Hollie Jackson – was your favorite?

    I like Laura. Hollie does an amazing job bringing all the characters to life.


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

    I felt extremely empathetic to Alan. Sometimes you need a little spice in your marriage to keep it interesting after being together for a long time.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely love this series. I love how each couple has a specific problem, but you can relate to each couple in a different way.

    "Hot and steamy"

    One of my favorite of the series. Sometimes it is hard to find that spark between you and you significant other after so long. The motions of love making become almost robotic. Laura and Alan are no exception to that. After some of Laura's friends get together and come up with a plan, can she save her marriage? Listen and find out!

    "Quick fun hot story!"

    Laura is a woman who plans, so much that she even plans her intimate time with Alan. And that is getting old and stale for Alan. The thing I love most about these Éveiller Drive couples is they are all someone we can relate to. Laura and Alan are no exception. And it's interesting the things that you discover in an online chat.

    With the Audbile version, Hollie once again did a fantastic job bring the story to life with her narration.

    Story
    "Time for everything? Maybe Not"
    What made the experience of listening to Laura & Alan the most enjoyable?

    The narrator brings the story across greatly. It puts things in perspective. And it makes the story seem like your living it


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The friend who ties and blindfolds Laura to the bed to surprise her husband.


    What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

    She gets into the story. Each area of the story she brings laughter and seriousness when needed.


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

    Yes it was I could listen to it many times


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story about a married couple who has lost that spontaneous in the bedroom and in their daily lives. Can they survive it and get back to how their life was before life and children? Fantastic short story.

    "Spicy Sexy Short Story You Won’t Soon Forget!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Laura & Alan to be better than the print version?

    I like the audio version because it puts voices to the characters from the book. It also depends on the person narrating the story. I happen to love Hollie Jackson's voices for the characters in all the books I've listened to her narrate so far. That is not always the case with other books and narrators. They don't always fit with my imagination of what the character is supposed to sound like.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love these stories because they are true to life and these situations actually happen to a lot of married couples who can probably relate to the couples on Éveiller Drive.


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

    Yes, I've listened to quite a few books by Melanie James that Hollie Jackson has narrated and I loved all of them! I hope she is the one narrating the rest of the books in this series! Another awesome read!


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

    When Laura overcomes her issues to try to fulfill her husband's erotic fantasy!
