Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: she's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. Joe needs to have her, and he'll stop at nothing to do so. As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her. So when her boyfriend, Benji, mysteriously disappears, Beck and Joe fall into a tumultuous affair. But there's more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade.
Firstly, I have to say that I feel I have been over scoring every narrator after listening to Santino. He is an incredible narrator. He truly makes Joe come to life; the nuances, the delivery, the everything, is fantastic. I will start to look for more audio books performed by him. Luckily there is a second book to 'You' and I'm downloading that now.
The book is equally wonderful. It completely captures your attention from the first chapter. I couldn't and didn't want to stop listening. The main characters are so complex and like-able when they shouldn't. The story is compelling and so original. I love it. I highly recommend this book. It's definitely one that I will want to listen to again.

Despite Blake Landon's controlling ways, the young and wealthy hacker finally won the trust of the woman he loved. Internet entrepreneur Erica Hathaway broke down the walls that kept her from opening her heart and her business to Blake.
After the first book I was really ready to start this second one. But in this book I kinda didn't like Erica through most of it. First, she's too needy, next she's too independent to ask for help and then she's all crazy. It wasn't until the end that she finally pulled herself together. I hope in the next one she's not as annoying or I just can't with her anymore. Overall the story was pretty good, but the ending for me was just too "let's wrap up this story in a bow and be done with it". The narrator is the same as the last book and she does such a wonderful job. I really like her and hope she does the next one as well!

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.
I found myself getting upset when I would reach my destination and have to stop listening. The story is very entreating and you always want to know what happens next. You really feel like you are there and can see it all for yourself. The narrator did a wonderful job with all the characters and accents. She really made the story even more than it already is. I would highly suggest. This is my first Nora Roberts book and I'm hooked. Looking forward to more.
Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on how to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn't prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who's seemingly determined to derail her presentation.
I'm in love with Blake Landon. The characters are interesting and the story is multi leveled so it's not the same ole love story. I do think Erica could give Blake a bit of a break at some parts, but aside from that it's still a good story. And it's has some pretty hot, steamy parts which are awesome. The narrator did a wonderful job as well. Looking toward to listening the next one.
See the world of Fifty Shades of Grey anew through the eyes of Christian Grey. In Christian's own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E. L. James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of listeners around the world.
I read the the original 50 Shades of Grey, pushed through the second one and didn't even bother for the third. I was hoping that this version would be better. But it just makes me dislike Ana even more than I already did. She's super annoying. I like to that we get to see where Christian is coming from. He's a little childish at time but I like him so much more than Ana. The love scenes are pretty great coming from his side and his perverse mind is exciting. Really it's the only reason I stuck around. Overall, I was happy when it finished.
The narrator was great. His voice is so smooth and husky at the same time, so it was a perfect fit for Christian.
Former Marine helicopter pilot Jack Morgan runs Private, a renowned investigation company with branches around the globe. It is where you go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion. The secrets of the most influential men and women on the planet come to Jack daily - and his staff of investigators uses the world's most advanced forensic tools to make and break their cases.
If I could give a half star I would give it a three and a half. It was an entertaining story and the narrator did a good job (aside from the Irish accents, which made me laugh). It was a bit OTT at points but like I said it was alright. It kept me company on my long commutes to work.
