Meet Miranda. She is a cheerful and happy-go-lucky single girl who just happens to be a dominatrix with a dungeon in her flat, where she services clients with flogging, extreme correction and (if she’s lucky) gets the occasional slave to pay her for the honour of doing her vacuuming. And when she’s not delivering 30 lashes to the sensitive parts of religious zealots or doing step-aerobics in stilettos on the buttocks of retired army officers, she is just trying to get on with the neighbours....

Everyone knows that regular exercise and weight training lead to physical strength. But how do we strengthen ourselves mentally for the truly tough times? And what should we do when we face these challenges? Or as psychotherapist Amy Morin asks, what should we avoid when we encounter adversity? Through her years counseling others and her own experiences navigating personal loss, Morin realized it is often the habits we cannot break that are holding us back from true success and happiness.

Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.

Working women today are better educated and more well-qualified than ever before. Yet men still predominate in the corporate world. In The Confidence Code, Claire Shipman and Katty Kay argue that the key reason is confidence.

Combining cutting-edge research in genetics, gender, behavior, and cognition - with examples from their own lives and those of other successful women in politics, media, and business - Kay and Shipman go beyond admonishing women to "lean in".

This is a great book to have in audiobook, you can listen to and from work or anywhere you like. There are great nuggets of information for where you’re at and a great book to re-listen to again to get other nuggets of information to develop. My mentor recommended to me to get for self development.

Yes, I would listen to "A Twist of Date" again because it is funny, and i think with each additional listening to the book that one would get a detailed that may have been an enhancement to the story that was not noticed on the first listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed Melanie interactions with the other characters in the story.

What does Martha Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Martha Lee added tone change between the characters and different patter of speech, which gave each character more depth.

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

Yes and no. Yes, I wanted to know what happen next without down time and no, I didn't want the story to end and keep the story going.

I enjoyed the narration by Martha Lee, she made it easy to follow along and used differentiated tones for each of the characters. The author Susan Hatler did an amazing job with this story, it had me laughing at the “Boyfriend Bylaws” and Melanie character struggling with both dating and the boyfriend bylaws. Melanie’s story is relatable for some of us ladies as we love falling in love and sometimes miss the signs that the one we are falling in love with is not on the same page meaning…they are either just getting to know you phase or is only going out with you to have fun but nothing more. The author captures the complex actions and feeling that go with dating, especially for those of us who are in love with being in love and getting hurt over and over again.
