I adored the story of this book but hearing the audio brought the story to life even more. Fiona Fisher captured Anna's personality perfectly. Stephen Dexter was perfect as brooding Luka. Here's hoping to hear more from them as this series unfolds.

If someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one. After 17 years - and countless broken bones and broken promises - she knows her window to compete in figure skating is coming to a close. But when the offer of a lifetime comes in from an arrogant idiot she's spent the last decade dreaming about pushing in the way of a moving bus, Jasmine might have to reconsider everything.

I adored this book but it was made 200x better because of the way that Callie and Teddy recorded the dialogue. Having Teddy record all of Ivan's dialogue was genius and really drew me into the story even more. I know I will be revisiting Meatball and Satan's story many many times in the future.

Hollie Porter is the chairwoman of Generation Disillusioned: at 25 years old, she's saddled with a job she hates, a boyfriend who's all wrong for her, and a vexing inability to say no. She's already near her breaking point, so she cashes in the Sweethearts' Spa & Stay gift certificate from her dad and heads to Revelation Cove, British Columbia. One caveat: she's going solo.

loved the book. Narrator was slightly annoying in a valley girl way but maybe it's just because she didn't sound like but I imagined Holley to be in my head. the book was lovely and funny and full of cork oenis that is seriously lacking in a lot of other bugs. This is a wonderful book and I know I'll be reading it again.

Twenty-six-year-old Gaby Barreto might be a lot of things (loyal, sarcastic, one of the guys, and a pain in the butt, depending on which family member you ask), but dumb isn't one of them. When her twin brother invites her to go on tour as his band's merch girl, she isn't exactly screaming at the top of her lungs with joy. But with no job opportunities pounding on her door, an ex-boyfriend she would still like to castrate, and no end in sight to moving out of her parents' house in Dallas, it would be dumb to say no to the chance of a lifetime.

I adore this book, it's my favorite of all of Mariana's books. But the narrator's 'male' voice is awful. Otherwise her voice is fine, great even, but when she attempts to make a male voice it sounds froggy and to be honest a bit creepy, especially with Eli. I will reread this book many times but I will not be listening again.
