I met Bianca in an elevator. She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck. The beautiful raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed. She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she'd dubbed "Mister Moneybags" - her afternoon appointment. Bianca told me how much she hated Dex's type - snobby, over-educated, silver-spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life.

The narration of this book just rubbed me the wrong way. I truly tried listening for 20 minutes and just could not finish it. Sending it back for a refund.

Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn't stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter - his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She's not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

Where does Challenge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks very, very high on my list of Audible books I've listened too so far.

What did you like best about this story?

The best part is the dual narration.

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

They made the story very believable.

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

Yes, I literally had to force myself to turn this book off and go to bed. Lol!!

Any additional comments?

Please!! do more dual narrations.

But he needs a respectable date to his brother's engagement party. So, he finally gives in and lets his eccentric aunt, Dolly Monroe, a matchmaker, find him a date. Much to his shock, she sets him up with an opinionated, average-looking, floral shop owner who seems impervious to his charms. Avery doesn't want him, and that makes him want her even more.

I am disappointed in the male narrator. He sounds like he is just reading a book. I could only get to chapter 3. I then skipped to the next chapter to hear the female narrator, she was fine. I will be returning this book.

Alice Shepard needs one thing: a date for her sister's wedding. And not just any date. A hunk who will make her fiancé rue the day he left her for her best friend. Her drop-dead gorgeous neighbor fits the bill - even if he is a bit quirky and never comes out during the day - and Alice has downed just enough appletinis to ask him. But she makes it quite clear that there will be no funny business.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The Narrator!!! She made Noah and Charles sound like geeks instead of Alpha males. I really in enjoyed the printed book better.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the story. It's the audio version I do not care for.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator could have done a way way better job in voicing the male characters.

Do you think Don't Bite the Bridesmaid needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, but not if the audio version will have the same narrator.

Any additional comments?

Please re-do this book with a different narrator.

Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down. In the middle of the chaos, a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from. And from now on, for Kitty, things are going to be sexy, dangerous, wild, and out of this world.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Different Narrator. Why make a twenty something woman sound like a older person that smokes heavily.

What could Gini Koch have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was not a Gini Koch issue. The book sounds like a great read. It's the audible version that's the problem.

Would you be willing to try another one of Romy Nordlinger’s performances?

Hell No!!! I did not get past the first couple of chapters. That voice ruined it for me.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story was not the problem. The audible narrator was the issue.

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

It was a great book, but could have been better if more of the story would have been about Venom and Evelyn. This one did not live up to it's potential.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Venom. It was wonderful to see a serious side to him. Great how the story showed how jealous he was of Wick new relationship with JJ and his loneliness.

Which character – as performed by Cole Ferguson – was your favorite?

Though I really missed Benjamin L. Darcie voice, Cole did a sexy voice for Venom. I wish Audible would stick with the same narrators for series.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not sure. The whole dragon series would make a excellent movie.

Any additional comments?

I was very disappointed in this book. There was barely a storyline about Venom and Evelyn. There was more about the secondary characters then the main two people it was suppose to be focused on. Coreene short change us on this book.

This was a wonderful story. I loved the fact that the two main characters had a chance to slowly get to know one another before they became a couple. It was not that instant falling in love a first sight. The secondary characters also made this a wonder book. My only issue was at times was the female narrator voice. I think this would have been better just with Douglas Berger doing the narrating. He was excellent in this Audio version. I do think that I will take a chance and listen to the next book in this series.

Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.
