Standing at what I believe is the precipice of my life, I, Oren Demetri, was too young to understand that it wasn't and too old to imagine that it couldn't be. The already hefty accumulation of my successes and failures, bravery and fears, and rewards and suffering, had brought me to this point. It was hard to contemplate the things I'd done, and yet, in reality I'd only begun to learn the possibilities. I suppose that's how it was for me at 29 years of age on the brink of all I'd ever wanted without fully realizing the price I would pay.

I am a huge fan of Aleatha Romig and Respect doesn't disappoint. Brain Pallino did a phenomenal job as Oren Demetri. Brian's voice is exactly how I pictured Oren and surprisingly I like him and understand why I didn't like him in the Infidelity Series. Oren married the love of his life but over time things became hard.

Angelina Costello was his dream, his prize, his everything. She had a part of Oren's heart that no one could have fill but her family and what they did in the world made things hard. Oren had a hard time choosing what side he should be on, his wife and any children they would have or her uncle and all the things that come with him. This decision made life hard and eventually things changed. I understand why Oren did the things he did and I also understand why I didn't understand him throughout the Infidelity series. The way he was treated and how he treated others came from the life he had to live while married to Angelina.

I loved this story but I loved the audio more!! I wish there was more stories in this series with Oren!!

He's sexy and confident, the kind of man every woman notices. You know, the one with the to-die-for body and panty-melting smirk. And then there's the way his designer suits drape over his broad shoulders and big...well, we've all heard the rumors, the ones that say he's up for any challenge. But I can't see him that way. He's my boss - technically one of the owners of the company where I work - and definitely not in my league. Men like him don't notice women like me, and they don't date them.

I loved the story and the characters but I had a hard time really getting into them. The narrators didn't do the story the justice it deserved.

Kimbra is a HR associate who is blackmailing her boss, Duncan, because of his discrepancies, He's a playboy and likes to do things in and out of the office. Duncan is a playboy who hasn't found the one person who knows how to stroke his ego and make him settle. Duncan was into Kimbra but she was all business and he just needed to get her loosen up!! He has the perfect opportunity when he had to take a trip with her!!

Kimbra was all business and no play. When she was in a predicament and needed a plus one, Duncan was the winner!! She was able to begin to let her guard down and get things that she never imagined at the most inappropriate times. Did she give what she got? Can she leave the stuffiness that is Kimbra and let her inner fun girl shine?

I loved this story. It was fun and you could actually put yourself in Kimbra's shoes with everything her family put her through. Kimbra's grandmother was the absolute best and reminded me of many grandmas!!!

I like the story but I couldn't connect with the characters. I didn't feel like there was a connection between all of the characters with the exception of a sexual connection. I loved them coming together to take care of the children that was in "shelter". I had a hard time dealing with one member getting beat up because of his sexual orientation, although it happens often. I wish there was more to this story. I felt there really could have been something that could have been learned.

Overall I enjoyed the story and where it could have been taken.

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

I love paranormal books. I have listened to this narrator before and I love her. I loved being able to "hear" a voice with the book. It makes reading the book more enjoyable when you can hear how someone may sound.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Providence?

Providence had a lot of moments that will last with me. Nina and Jared relationship was rocky to say the least. I loved when Nina finally realized that Jared was it for her. No one else would ever take his place and once she realized that his family was very protective not only of him but of her. They loved her and would do anything for her. The fight scenes and Jared's family and Nina's friends made listening even better.

Which scene was your favorite?

There were so many but when the intruders came in the house and didn't know what Jared's family was really "made of" was surprising. I loved his siblings and their innocence but also their strength.

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

Yes. I listened to it at work so there was minimal distraction and I loved it
