At 34, I'm reeling from a divorce. I don't want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn's Dips and Balls. But my friends aren't having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I'm still taking a hard pass. Free designer cocktails, they say. And that's a game-changer. Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That's when I lose my mind.

Great writing with excellent characters, a plot that moves, and swoon worthy moments. The narrators were exactly right for these characters. One of the most enjoyable listens I’ve had in a long time.

Erin Davis will do whatever it takes to be the photographer for high-end brides. Nothing will get between her and the security she craves, not even the gorgeous farmer refusing to let her shoot in his sunflowers.... Luke Anderson has cows to milk and no time to deal with Erin or bridezillas in his fields. Yet there's something about the sexy city girl he can't say no to. So he says yes: just this once. The sparks flying between Ern and Luke quickly ignite, but just as Erin starts to picture her own happy ending, Luke takes a gamble that could risk it all...

I couldn't even get through the first chapter because of the narrator's tendency to break. up. every. phrase. No comment on the story; I'll have to read it.

Sexy. Intriguing. Easy. Eli Boudreaux's family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hardworking, wealthy family, and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At 30 he is the youngest CEO ever to head Bayou Enterprises, cochairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic are also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him, and Eli's family is solid.

I couldn't get through it. The narrator for The guy didn't even try to capture his southern character, which would have been fine if the narrator for the woman hadn't read him that way -- no coordination. But no narration could've made this weak writing worth listening to. I could not care about these cardboard characters or the insipid plot.

The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s, magnum opus, tells the story of Hester Prynne, who gives birth two years after separation from her husband and is condemned to wear the scarlet letter A on her breast as punishment for her adultery. She resists all attempts of the 17th century Boston clergy to make her reveal the name of her child’s father while she struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity.

Easy to follow reading of a classic tale; missing the introduction.

I enjoyed this narration -- not overly acted, but clear character distinctions and great pacing. I thought the tenor of the novel rang true. My one disappointment was the omission of the introduction "The Custom House" as this part of the novel established much of the purpose and character of the narrator and makes events and symbols and the voice that all evolve clearer.
