This is a great story to listen too and read! Andi Arndt was amazing and brought these characters to life. She bought the lost but soon to be found Clementine to life and it was an instant pull to the book!

Clementine doesn't really know who she is. She has been "reborn" into this world that is strange and people that may or may not be stranger to her. She had a life that consisted of family, friends, boyfriends and just life. In the blink of an eye all of those things changed and she was shoved back in the world to make it.

Ed is Clementine's ex and let's just say he really had to grow on me. I understand when you see an ex who you wanted to be with forever suddenly shows up in your shop confused and doesn't know who she is...you'll scratch your head. Ed tried the best he could to get her on the right track but his feelings were strong and things just couldn't end with her. She held his heart as hostage and had no idea. The quirky things she once did no longer existed. Clementine was a brand new person and ready to live a brand new life...or is she?

The interaction between Clementine and Ed was at best, decent at times and infuriating at others. I wanted both of them to have an HEA but more so Clementine. She fought hard to become who she ended up and I loved her!

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant Going in Blind begins their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn't have found a better person than Noely Clark. A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, she found it impossible to find the man of her dreams so being set up on three very different, very attractive, and very distinctive blind dates, seemed like a great idea, but who will she choose?

Ava Erickson and Aiden Snow were the perfect narrators for this book!! I truly pictured this story taking place and it was so much more enjoyable!!

Who do you choose; the suit who gives you chills in all the right places; the rebel who makes you do things that you've always wanted to do; or the jock who you just want because of all the wrong reasons?

Yep those are the decisions that Noely has to make and it's so fun thinking...make the bad decision Noely...make all the bad decisions!!! Noely is this fun loving news anchor who just wants love. She's ready to settle down, start a family but boy is she having fun getting to that point.

Noely has fun on all three dates and each one gives her something that she enjoys. She enjoys going out with The Suit and being romanced in the most special way. She enjoys going to different places and being taken care of but he doesn't let her in and she doesn't like to pull information out of someone. It's fun but it's also extra work....bummer!!!

The Rebel is extra fun and she's able to let her hair down and enjoy herself everywhere they go but he's hiding something really important from his past that may break them if they start something serious....bummer again.

The jock is so much fun and everyone knows him. Her brother and sister in law want him for a threesome...the fans want him forever but he wants something from his past that is only making him friend material...bummer again and again!!!

What does Noely do? There are second chances in the air but which one wants that second chance and is it worth it?

This book is another funny, love story that pulls you end and makes you want her to pick wrong but can't wait for her to pick right so she can have the HEA. Meghan Quinn knows how to reel you in and she absolutely does that in Three Blind Dates.

Amelia and Quinn started off on the wrong foot and with the wrong fashion. You see walking into Riley O'Brien means you need to sport the product that they are known for and not something that is not representing them when you want their business. Amelia started off on the wrong foot...or maybe she didn't. Maybe Quinn saw something in her that peaked his interest in a different way.

Amelia is a nice and sweet person who had a hard life but she fought through it and has found the things that she loves to do. There is something that she has been brought into with the family that could rip them apart and it's tearing her apart. Does she follow her heart and desires to attempt to be with Quinn or does she go with a plan that she has now been made to take on?

Quinn sees something in Amelia that sparks his interest. He has plans for the company because soon he will oversee it once his father steps down. There are things in Amelia that he can't walk away from and giving his heart is the biggest obstacle. Can he continue to be an O'Brien and make his parents proud. After giving a piece of himself to Amelia, finding out things about her and getting to the truth of why she wants to make O'Brien clothing; will it tear him apart? Can they make it?

I enjoyed the story of Quinn and Amelia. It was nice to see the things both had to go through. I took me a while to enjoy the narrator but once I listened for a few chapters, she bought the characters to life!

The plot thickens in book 2 of The Dairies Series. Chloé is searching for love but she is also finding out what she wants in life. She is excited to get more than the vanilla world that the Baron is giving her.

There are many secrets that live within the walls of the Beardley manor and slowly but surely Chloé is finding out what she is really needed for and what the Baron is really up to. The lies, deceit and the "love" that she is being shown is laughable. She is left to herself all the time and has no idea why her husband is always gone...until that night!! Things seem to fly out of the walls and he eyes are now open. She is finding love and lust in all different places and nothing is stopping her from getting exactly what she desires.

We are finally able to start putting things together and we see what Chloé wants and needs. She has found what she wants and she is stopping at nothing to get it.him..Salvatore!!!

Is she putting herself in danger and does she care??? The ending is coming for this series. Will she get her HEA? Will she stop venturing out to others for the relief that she so desperately needs?

This is the first time I have read or listened to anthing from Cristiane Serruya and I was intrigued with the story. From the Baroness's Diary, Volume 1, was a very unexpected and fun read. It was different from other books and I loved it. We get to dive into the life of Lady Chloé de La Fleur and her husband Baron Beardley.

Chloé was a young girl who was not living at home and married to an experienced Baron. She was young, inexperienced and quite frankly she was looking for love. She was dined and wooed by the Baron and was ecstatic when she was finally married to him. While becoming the lady of the house, there were many adventures that she had no idea about and dealing with his mother was becoming quite annoying.

Chloé's life was becoming somewhat of the unknown and her sexual experiences were unlike anything she assumed and also what was learned. The diaries she kept allowed us to see how her life unfolded and her mindset during this "grand" time!!

I really enjoyed the first book and loved Chloé's thought process, becoming a woman and also having a mind of her own. I can't wait for book 2!! The story was great and the lead up to the next book makes you want to continue to read it.

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
