I've been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got worse as time wore on. I even went to Europe for a year, just to avoid him. But I'm done hiding from him now, and there's no way I'll allow him to ruin another year. He might not have changed, but I have. It's time to fight back.

This narrator. I just. Sigh. She should stop attempting masculine voices. Just stop it. And, stop empathizing the last word of every sentence with a little looptie loop dip. Why are you so breathless? All. The. Time. Why?? I will be trying my best to avoid all her books going forward.

I enjoyed the story, mostly. I think it could have done with a little more progression to change. That part seemed off. I'm looking forward to reading his POV to, hopefully, fill in some gaps.

It didn't take a week for 27-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she'd seen in the international soccer icon - why she'd ever had his posters on her wall or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies.

I truly loved this story line but came very close to not finishing it because of the number of times "poop" was said. I get it we all do it but I don't want to be reading a book that is supposed to be taking me away into a fantasy world only to read about poop. It was funny the first time then it was just annoying when the character kept repeating it. Besides that, I enjoyed this read.

As far as the Narrator is concerned, her accent for the German was incredibly horrible and cringe Worthy. I mean to a point where I was wondering why she even bothered attempting to change voices.

Twenty-six-year-old Gaby Barreto might be a lot of things (loyal, sarcastic, one of the guys, and a pain in the butt, depending on which family member you ask), but dumb isn't one of them. When her twin brother invites her to go on tour as his band's merch girl, she isn't exactly screaming at the top of her lungs with joy. But with no job opportunities pounding on her door, an ex-boyfriend she would still like to castrate, and no end in sight to moving out of her parents' house in Dallas, it would be dumb to say no to the chance of a lifetime.

This is my second Mariana Zapata book and I am in love with the way she weaves a love story. I am slightly annoyed though, that this is now the second book that she feels the need to speak speak about "poop" as often as she does. I just don't get that. A character can be down to earth without all the "brown pickle" references. I am reading more of her stuff now but am going to be disappointed if all her books revolve around self proclaimed non traditional feminine characters getting the guy and her version of non traditional being not caring about physical appearance, playing sports, and being able to talk about bodily functions. Mariana is talented and I just know she can go deeper than that. I also feel like the narrator was too dramatic and breathy at moments that just didn't make sense to be.

My wife. I love saying those words. She's mine, and if she thinks I'm going to let her run without tracking her down and bringing her back to where she belongs - with me - then she's about to be introduced to a new reality. Because I'll fight dirty to give her the happily ever after she deserves. Dirty Together is the final book in the Dirty Billionaire Trilogy.

First, there is zero reason except for maybe greed that this story should have been dragged out into three books. Holly's immaturity had me cringing. Literally, cringing by the second book. On the third book, I had to pause it and come back days later. Not only is there a complete lack of character development but the author clearly does not know the definition of strength when referencing one's character. And, the ending... Holy hell. Bad. Out of left field. Made no sense to the story line except to satisfy the publisher's let's tie up all loose ends with a bow mindset. Horrible. Meanwhile, the voice actors actually did a fantastic job but couldn't make up for the absolute smut this storyline ended up being.

If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved from her native Chicago to Portland, Oregon, where she's reconnected with her spirited aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts.

Honestly, wasn't a fan. One of the turn offs was the Bible being Incorporated into the book. I've never read anything by the author previously so I was unaware. I also felt the story dragged in certain parts, didn't develop other parts, such as the character of the Mom. And, the ending was incredibly unrealistic. I felt it had the core of a good story without the grit or passion needed. I doubt I will be reading Macomber again.

First, I realize this was the author reading her own work which made it even worse as this performance was meant to motivate. It was not good. Very dry and passionless. Second, as an Athiest, I attempt to steer clear of any book that tries telling me to believe in god. I don't. I bought this book to help motivate my team. Please don't try to tell me I need god to do that.
