The White House is the home of the president of the United States, the most guarded, monitored, closely watched person in the world. So how could a US president vanish without a trace? And why would he choose to do so? An unprecedented collaboration between President Bill Clinton and the world's best-selling novelist, James Patterson, The President Is Missing is a breathtaking story from the pinnacle of power.

Former President Clinton's contribution made the story feel like it was an authentic version of true presidential dialogue, leadership, and guts. So many issues of the modern era (2018) were addressed that made you wish HE (President Duncan) was the hero-of-the-day for all world issues...what would that be like. The plot is well developed and details addressed flawlessly. My first real book read in the last 4 years. What a great one to pull me out of the proverbial "rabbit hole" of a single genre for a day or two. Thank you both for a great novel!

Would you consider the audio edition of Darker to be better than the print version?

It's always nice to hear from Mr. Grey's point of view and Zachary Webber is wonderful in his inflections throughout the book. I enjoy hearing what Christian is thinking. I even learned a bit more even though I've read Fifty Shades 3x through. I wish more authors would utilize audio books for every book - that's the only way I 'read' Thank you ELJ doing just that.

What about Zachary Webber’s performance did you like?

His inflection toward different moods is spot on. I think we have a good Christian in the audio mode.

Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it's in the red. Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year. The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting - but surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Tiffany Reisz has done it again! Gone where no author has gone before. Her creative mind - along with sexy and explicit scenes - when it comes to story-line, is refreshing. She does NOT use a cookie-cutter approach toward her master-pieces.

What other book might you compare The Red to and why?

None other - of what I've read. I've not read this story-line in any of the books I've read - and I've read 350+ romance erotic, contemporary, menage, etc. books by many authors. If you want to look for something different and sexy, tantalizing, Tiffany Reisz delivers.

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Hart – was your favorite?

She is very good at distinguishing male and female voices so that you aren't guessing "...now who is this speaking?..." Kudos to Elizabeth

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

The Art Master of her Dreams!

Any additional comments?

DAMN GOOD BOOK.....I was captured from the very beginning.
