One night to remember. Is that too much to desire? One night for fun, passion, and a chance to remember what it's like to be a woman. I'm not looking for love. There's a man in my life who loves me with all his heart. He has beautiful blue eyes, is three feet tall, and calls me mommy. He's my whole world, and I'm his. Fate stole his daddy way too soon. What would happen if I allowed fate another chance, just for one night?

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Malcolm and Amanda meet in a bar as they are both supposed to be there for a blind date with each other, but they don't know it. One Night turns into so much more. Amanda is trying to remember what it's like to be a woman instead of a mom, full time employee and a widow. Malcolm has just moved to town and started his second career as a teacher. I loved watching these two fall for each other.

I was a little distracted by the woman narrator. She always sounded groan-like. It was fine for the sexy times, but got a little annoying during the rest of the story. There was also a fair amount of static throughout the story which I found distracting. The story was good though and I will definitely look into the other books.

I really enjoyed this book. It might be my favorite from the series! I loved alpha Ryder and the chemistry he had with Felicity from the start. He is all protector. It was interesting to see how he got to know his half-brothers and immediately became part of the family. The men that Ryder worked with have me intrigued and I can't wait to read their series!

I enjoyed listening to this story. She kept me engaged and into the story. Towards the end, I wanted to keep driving around so I could listen to the rest! The only recommendation I have it to have a male read also. This is such an alpha series with big protectors and you just can't get that from a woman reading it. I thought she did a good job though.

Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he's helped his father build, and his wife, Sara. From the moment he first saw her wide smile on their college campus years ago, Hunter fell hard. Yet now, with other family members pushing to sell the thriving business and Sara grieving their failure to start a family, he's suddenly facing the crushing loss of both.

This book was an emotional read/listen for me. IVF is such a personal thing to go through and Sara and Hunter broke my heart as they navigated through their journey. Marriage is hard and when you meet in college and 14 years pass, you change as people and as a couple. Hunter and Sara have some tough things to face in this book and my heart went out to them. I thought the writing was great and I definitely shed a few tears. The Cabot family is one that is pretty dysfunctional, but yet, they love each other. I can't wait to see what Gentry's book brings and where this family is headed. I've really enjoyed the first two books in the series. This could be read as a standalone, but I think you get more out of it, if you read book 1 first.

The only thing that I think would have made a better narration is for a man to have read Hunter's part. The narrator did a good job with all of the different characters, but I really like to hear a man read a man's POV.

Once upon a time, a girl loved a boy and he loved her back. They lived happily ever after. But our story was never that simple. I loved Josh with all I had, right until the day he left. Now, all these years later, he was back - and wanting me the way I'd always longed for him. Except now, I belonged to someone else. Someone who never left me the way Josh had. I figured that was the end of our story. I couldn't alter the past. I didn't want to rewrite my future.

What made the experience of listening to Rewrite the most enjoyable?

I loved the alternating narrators. It really gave voice to Bri and Josh.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Rewrite?

When Josh and Bri finally kiss!

Which scene was your favorite?

Bri and Josh's wedding. It was such a long time coming and they went through so much. I loved it!

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

Definitely tears. I was choked up for most of this book. I've read it and knew what was coming, but the narrators did a great job of making me feel the author's words.

Any additional comments?

This is such an amazing story and I couldn't wait to listen to it. I've read the book and couldn't wait to hear Josh and Bri "speak" to me. Having a voice for Josh and Bri really spoke to me. They brought out scenes that I didn't remember reading and now they seem as clear as day. This is one of my favorite books by Stephanie Rose and I absolutely loved the audio!

I've spent my entire adult life avoiding dating, which is funny because I work for a matchmaking service. My boss calls me "The Beast" because of my no B.S. attitude. My job is to scare away problem clients - the unmatchables. In waltzes Mister Alfred Barnes. He's stuck up, brazen, and mouthwateringly gorgeous. Guys like him think they own the world, but in here I'm in charge. Kicking him out of my office is one of my greatest pleasures...until I find out that he totally lied about his identity.

What did you love best about Unmatchable?

Colton for the most part

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I thought this was going to be more of a rom-com based on the blurb and that wasn't what the story was at all. It was pretty dark. Colton started out as cocky and arrogant, but then became kind of needy and really wanted a lot of sex from someone going through what she was going through.

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

I have not. I thought she did a good job, but I think the book would have benefited from also having a man reading Colton's parts.

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

Not really

Any additional comments?

I had a hard time with this story. The characters were hard for me to love and the story was a lot different than what I thought it was when I picked up the book. I thought the narrator did a good job, but I think the story would have benefited from a man reading Colton's part since there was a change of POV at the chapters. It was an OK read.

Where does Ace of Spades rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I loved it because it was action packed and romantic. The narrating was great for all of the different things going on in the story.

What other book might you compare Ace of Spades to and why?

I would compare it to Sandra Owen's other books in this series and the K2 books.

What about Amy McFadden and Sebastian York ’s performance did you like?

I loved the emotion and the way they were able to get the story across with the emotion in their voices.

I had a few giggles at the Gentry brothers.

I love this series so much and I was so excited to listen to Nate's book. Each of these men have had awesome stories to tell. Nate and Taylor's story was exciting and more importantly, I loved watching Nate let his walls down. He and Taylor deserved a happily ever after and I was so glad that they found it. The narration really enhanced the story. It was a great story!

If you could sum up Dirty Sexy Player in three words, what would they be?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dirty Sexy Player?

The wedding scene when Weston said his vows

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved when Weston and Elizabeth finally got together. There was such an incredible build up to it and it was hot!

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

When Weston realized that Elizabeth was his home.

Any additional comments?

This is book 1 of a duet which I didn't realize when I started it. As I got closer to the end, I kept thinking how are they going to wrap it up in this short amount of time, well that's because there is another book to finish Weston and Elizabeth's story which I can't wait for.

The book was well narrated. Jacob and Elena did a terrific job with the narration. I never wanted to get out of my car so that I could finish the story. Laurelin Paige is one of my favorite writers and I love the characters she brings to life. Weston and Elizabeth had me intrigued when I first met them in the Dirty duet. Their story is a great enemies to lovers story. There was such pent up heat built up between them that it erupted when they finally got together. I can't wait to finish their story!

I would have liked to have had a woman for Stella's parts. It just always helps me when a woman is reading, too. I liked the narration though and it was done well. The story was good, but I thought there was going to be more of a conflict at the end so I was a little disappointed. Overall, it was a good story and well narrated.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you would do just about anything to get it? Have you felt as though you weren't quite good enough, so you deserved what life eked out? So much so that you've endured things you knew were wrong, but weren't sure what to change to fix it? If you have, then you're very much like me. That was exactly how I've been living my life, suffering for reasons I couldn't explain. I wanted something I couldn't seem to find, something I doubted I deserved. Until one day, I was in exactly the right place at the precisely the right time.
