Cash Fraser is planning revenge, and to get it he needs the perfect woman. So he hires her. Abigail Butler has lost nearly everything in her life and she's about to lose the home she loves. Cash meets Abby, who is posing as a paid escort, and the minute he does he knows he's willing to pay for more than Abby being his pretend girlfriend. A lot more. Abby needs the money or the last thing that links her to her dead family and husband will be gone. The deal is struck, but both Cash and Abby get more than they bargained for.

I loved this book. And listened to parts of it over again. Great characters all thru the book. Another heroine who is making really crazy life choices, but her heart is in the right place. I loved Cash. I could totally understand his perspective. Only about 1/2 of the book is related to the Castle.

I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

This is about a man who seriously needs to control someone. Pretty sexy. Some strange times in terms of the sex. This woman's life is a nightmare. It's hard to understand her need to fight the pull, and any idea that she'd want to get back to her 'crap' life is just weird.

There is definitely a mystery here, and that makes it interesting. However, the narrator is too slow... I'm like waiting for her to get to the point.

When a spaceship landed in an open field in the quiet mill town of Sorrow Falls, Massachusetts, everyone realized humankind was not alone in the universe. With that realization everyone freaked out for a little while. Or almost everyone. The residents of Sorrow Falls took the news pretty well. This could have been due to a certain local quality of unflappability, or it could have been that in three years the ship did exactly nothing other than sit quietly in that field, and nobody understood the full extent of this nothing the ship was doing better than the people who lived right next door.

If Zoe isn't able to unlock an unusual alchemy book's secrets soon, the French gargoyle will remain awake but trapped in stone forever.

I've read/listened to several of Gigi Pandian's books. This one, however, was sluggish, with so much repetition of the facts, that it was boring and I listened to several other books before going back to regretfully finishing it. It's disturbing that a female major character is so whiny, depressed, insecure and with such a lack of personal pride as to live the way she does. Please give this character a lift at some point (when does Anything good happen to her?).

In all his four hundred years, Rayven never met a woman like Rhianna McLeod. She is a vision of light, of warmth, of everything he is not - nor can ever be. Doomed to live forever in darkness and solitude, he knows all too well the risk in getting close to her, yet he hungers for her with a fierce passion he swears he will never allow himself to feel.

I've been an Audible fan for many years, and I don't think I've heard anyone read this badly. I do have a kindle book, so I can actually read it myself. I've read her books before, so I may re-review it after I've done so. It made me wonder if she was someone's daughter or girlfriend, since there is no way she is a professional narrater.

But when Jack leaves, reconfirming that she isn't worthy of love, her world shatters. The last person Lana thought to find refuge in is an adrenaline-junky firefighter, let alone Jack's best friend. Yet Callum Malone's easygoing playboy persona is just what she needs. When Lana finds herself the target of a stalker who isn't going away, Callum welcomes her not only into his home but also into his bed.

I enjoyed the story, and the characters. I really do not like these 'cliff hangers' where you don't have any idea about the ending without buying another of the authors books. Kind of a ripoff. Nevertheless, I have bought the next book to find out how the story resolves. I just hope it doesn't require me buying Another to find out. If so, that'll be it for this author for me.

Great performance. This book is Very Complex. Many characters and the plot moves both forward and back, so it's challenging to follow. Nevertheless it's a fascinating story.
