    "Amazing Narrator Voice"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brady is my favorite character but he just so Brady!


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

    Natalie Ross has the best narrator voice! She not only nailed the female voice but she does great male voices as well!


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

    The beginning was a bit slow with Hayden being so perfect but you knew the shoe was going to drop you just didn't know when!

    Would you consider the audio edition of On the Record to be better than the print version?

    Yes, definitely!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this book, Brady! Love hearing the dialogue in his head.

    Any additional comments?

    I typical don't read a series unless at least 3 books are already released. Not a fan of cliff hangers, but am thankful I don't have to wait a year for the next one.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Another Great Book in a fantastic series"

    Completely on the record, this second book in this series BLEW. ME. AWAY! It was just so... so... everything. Now I'll admit, the first book, Off the Record, left me a little bit unsatisfied. I felt like it was missing something, I wasn't as emotionally invested in the story line initially as I wanted to be. Well, this book, On the Record, was a game changer.

    I really loved Brady Maxwell in the first book. He was, honestly, what kept me engaged in a book that otherwise left me disconnected. So color me surprised when this sequel, a story where Brady is virtually absent in much of it, completely consumed me from the very first page. I don't know what happened, I can't pinpoint what exactly changed, but this book was just glue. I could not pull myself away.

    I feel compelled to note that the writing of K.A. Linde grows with each book she publishes. This story, in my opinion, reflects her strongest writing yet. I'm not typically a fan of third person narrative. In fact, I avoid it at all costs usually. But this author does it right, does it in such a way that I don't notice or care that it's not written in first person. I never felt like I was left wanting for anything, I felt it all, heard it all, saw it all. I was completely in it. The writing felt really clean, perfectly polished. I savored ever single word.

    The pacing and the timing in this book was spot on. The development of the relationship between Liz and Hayden was exactly what I needed it to be to believe in it. And I did! I was scared. This relationship between the two built on such a foundation of goodness, of honesty, of everything that was right, precisely what Liz needed after her heartbreaking departure from Brady. So of course I was afraid of how my own attachment to Hayden would play out in the grand scheme of things. I could not have been more surprised by everything that unfolds in this relationship. I want to scream and laugh and cry over how perfectly imperfect the course of events unfolded... but I can't. Listen to it, so we can rant together!!!

    The reemergence of Brady... the perfectly angst-ridden scenes where the author thrusts Liz and Brady back into each other's lives, if only for a moment. I wanted to jump for joy and curl up in a ball and cry. Every word... every miniscule touch, ever heated glance... it. was. just. delicious. Deliciously hot, deliciously devastating... all the things K.A. Linde delivers, but in such a new, refreshing way. The things they say to each other... they say EVERYTHING I always hoped I'd hear, the good and the bad. I could just eat this book up.

    The plot turns in this book NEVER STOP. But the timing, it's all just so perfect. It's never drama for the sake of drama, angst for the sake of angst. It's all completely crucial to the story line, paced perfectly, never over the top, never too subtle. My use of "perfect" is redundant, but I don't care. Everything about this story, every single word is exactly where it should be to form this unforgettable, unputdownable, sexy, angsty romance.

    I felt everything I hoped I'd feel reading this book and so much more. The details and the nuances of this story... I could talk about it all for days. I probably will. But to avoid spoilers, I'm just going to say this... get on board and enjoy this ride. Don't wait for the next installment before you take the plunge. The queen of angst outdid herself with On the Record. I want to run around carrying her on my shoulders because she totally freaking nailed it!

    Natalie Ross is one of my favourite narrators and she was fantastic in the delivery of the story.

    "10 stars!!!!!"

    I was soooo worried this book would have the second book blues, I just loved the first one so much I prepared for the disappointment...luckily I didn't have to be disappointed because this one was better than the first!

    We pick up where book 1 left off..Liz has walked out on Brady...she doesn't want to make him choose between the campaign and her so she chose for him. Now she is trying desperately to get on with her life, shouldn't be too hard, people break up all the time right? Well that is what she tells herself anyway! As she tries desperately to go on living a normal life she thinks of Brady every day, but she made her choice and now she has to live with it and TRY to build another life, a Brady free life...a new man....a new direction. But how do you build a life when your foundation is gone?

    I am LOVING this series!!! I was a bit dissapointed that we didn't even see Brady for like 3 hours but he got there eventually...and then was gone again...at that point I was with Liz, I was longing to see Brady too!!! When a book can grab you like this and has you rooting for the characters and hoping for them then you know you are into a good book!

    Have a mentioned I love this series? I am going to be so sad when this is over, but the ride has been so worth it!

    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book as much or more than the first. I really enjoy a book that actually gets my blood pressure rising, this book has it all, a leading male you love and the other you love to hate! I can't wait for the final book in this trilogy I am sure will have me listening over and over like the first two. If you like a book with steamy sex, twists and turns and characters you want to punch in the face then this is for you!

    "Read Off the Record 1st If Not-This May Be Spoiler"
    What made the experience of listening to On the Record the most enjoyable?


    This is the sequel to Off the Record. If you have not listened to that book I would recommend not reading this review as there may be spoilers. I hate unknowingly coming across spoilers, that is my warning.

    In the second of three books by KA Linde and narrated by Natalie Ross we pick up with reporter Liz Dougherty. She has made the decision for both Congressman Brady and herself that she can no longer hide their relationship. Since it is important for him to win an upcoming election she removes herself, making the decision to leave on her own.

    Now, she is back and attracted to her former college newspapers editor Hayden. She decides that since things are over with Brady she might as well pursue a legitimate, real relationship. She is no ones secret nor has to hook up on a man's whim instead of having a relationship that is public and happy.

    Hayden moves away and leaves her in charge of the paper for her senior year. They are having a blast and completely in love until several things twist their path. Will she stay with Hayden? Will she pursue the other man for whom she can only be a secret?

    I am really enjoying this series. This is a great story, a unique trilogy.

    Notes: Some mature situations & strong language

    Credit/$ worthy: Yes to either question. If you can, put them on your wish list and get them for less than $5 a piece during one of the two 50% off member sales that Audible offers.

    Thank you for reading my review. If you feel it has helped, please select yes immediately after this text.

    "Great story and excellent narration!"

    I waited for a long time to buy book one, but after reading several reviews made my purchase. I finished book one in a day and a half and immediately bought book two!! Loved the story! And the narration was excellent!

    "Held my Attention"

    The narrator did an amazing job. I preferred book 1, not much input from Brady which I had looked forward to hearing from. He came on scene toward the end with enough to make me move on to book 3. The writing was enough to keep me awake listening even when my system was fighting to sleep.

    "Great listen"

    I am so glad I got to find these books. I waited to hear all three books before I wrote yhis review because I wanted to have an overall idea of the storyline.

    I like romances. I am a true believer and a huge fan of these books and I have quite a big selection in my library and let me tell you this serie surprised me.

    At long last a different topic to base a romance on rather than the usual rich guy. This one is based on a political career and a collage student studying to be a political reporter... How refreshing !!!!!

    It had its twists, the hot scenes and drama!!!

    I had a little bit of reserve on the narrator but finally I got used to it and I was captivated.

    I highly recommend it if you are in doubt if you should buy this or not!
