Dagan Zoelner has made three huge mistakes. The first two left blood on his hands. The third left him wondering what if - what if he had told the woman of his dreams how he felt before his world fell apart? Spitfire CIA agent Chelsea Duvall has always had a thing for bossy, brooding Dagan, but it's just as well that he's never given her a second look - the secret about his past she carries could torch both of their lives.

OK, I absolutely loved this book but I had to give it one four star rating because I was so not impressed with Zoelner at the very end. Personally, I think he was a dick about the whole situation at the end after Chelsea confessed to him. He should have also apologized to her for his attitude. Other than the way it ended it was an awesome book. Though the alluding to the end of BKI is a bit depressing.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The 2 main characters have a weird connection to each other. They both seem to be over dramatic.

Would you be willing to try another book from J. T. Geissinger? Why or why not?

yes. I have read other books by her and enjoyed them. I enjoyed this one but only average.

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

Inflections of the voices that gives a better idea of what the characters are thinking

Did Sweet as Sin inspire you to do anything?

Leave this review because I just wasn't that impressed with it.

Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special.

Would you listen to Turbulent Sea again? Why?

Yes! I love anything by Christine Feehan. Her Alpha men are awesome and the women don't tend to be overly stupid. Some authors write women I want to slap upside the head and tell them to get a grip!

What other book might you compare Turbulent Sea to and why?

Hmmm... Stephanie Tyler or Pamela Clare are similar just without the magic. Cherry Adair writes books very similar including the magic stuff

Have you listened to any of Alyssa Bresnahan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, other books by Feehan and she always does a great job

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

Yes even though I couldn't :)

If you could sum up Rush in three words, what would they be?

Hot, tempting & exciting

What other book might you compare Rush to and why?

A lot of her other books are similar as are those by Olivia Cunning & Shayla Black. Erotica at it's best!

What about Adam Paul’s performance did you like?

Able to create distinct voices and add emotion to his reading. He is great!

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

YES! And I have listened to it many times since the first listen

Any additional comments?

I think this is the best of the three in this series (Rush, Burn & Fever)

With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

Would you try another book from Bella Andre and/or Eva Kaminsky?

Probably not unless it was deeply on sale.

If you’ve listened to books by Bella Andre before, how does this one compare?

First one I have listened to from Bella Andre, I would be willing to give another one a try, they aren't bad, just a bit boring

Which scene was your favorite?

Not any one in particular

Was The Look of Love worth the listening time?

Yes, but I am glad I didn't pay full price for it.

This is a great love story but there is no excitement

Would you listen to Bare It All again? Why?

Probably, the book held my attention and the characters were well rounded out making me able to connect with them.

What did you like best about this story?

It included all the past characters and tied in very well with the first book. A continuation of the first book instead of another story in a series.

What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

Nothing stood out, he was easy to listen to.

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

I'm not very good with this question. :(

Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

There was one part where the two main characters were arguing like a couple of teenagers (they are adults) and it was very funny and made the characters seem more like normal people
