What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There are so many insightful ideas in this book, it's hard to choose just one! But I would have to say that the idea that really hit home for me (and made me realise that I had chosen the right book) was that when people say things are "just in your head", they are making you feel worse about your struggles. Jennifer Alison insists that what is "in your head" is actually very important. She explores this idea by likening it to placebo effect and explaining that the things that are in your head are at the very center of your being. Your struggles may be in your head, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

Any additional comments?

The best thing about this book, is that it discusses things that are relevant to today's world, unlike some other books on the topic that are really dated and out of touch with reality. I really think that the sections on social anxiety in relation to social media and texting are so important for people today. I really can't recommend this book enough. So many people I know struggle with social anxiety and this book is a true miracle worker. Honestly, no matter what aspect of socialising you find difficult, you will find the answer in this book.

Sex and emotions: a dangerous combination. Despite the weakness in her legs and the fear of what was yet to come, she rose to meet her Master. She knew better than to hesitate when given orders. Instinctively she dropped her chin, stealing her gaze away from his eyes and letting them rest closer to his waist. "None of that," he said, taking her hands firmly and placing them at her sides. Then he reached down and undid the button of her jeans. He unzipped them. Alex breathed in sharply, feeling herself getting instantly excited by the brush of his hand on her stomach.

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

I prefer audiobooks to written books because I can listen while I'm doing housework! Although, I must say that I didn't get very much housework done while listening to this. It was so gripping I had to keep sitting down to take it all in. There is so much heat and DRAMA in this sequel. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Francois. He's the calm and steady one who really offsets the erratic behavior of Alex and Sir. He just seems like a big teddy bear who wants the best for the couple. In a way, I think of him in almost the same position as the reader.

I also cannot get enough of Sir/Elliott... Even when he's being difficult and mean, something about him is just irresistible. He has this loving heart but he's damaged... I love each time we learn more about him and his past... and I can definitely see why Alex loves him so much.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I felt joyous... you name it! It's such a gripping book, you can really get swept away with the mood of it all. Such a different take on erotic fiction... there are plenty of sexy moments, don't get me wrong, but there's also a lot of content. Alice Wright is an intelligent writer who seems to always strike the perfect balance between fantasy and reality.

Any additional comments?

This is really a superb sequel to Her Secret Submission. Thrilling, suspenseful, hot and heavy! And the ending... WOW!

I enjoyed this one even more than the first book and really cannot wait to get into the next instalment.

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

Absolutely. This is a really great book full of solid practical advice with just the right amount of self discovery. It covers a wide spectrum of conversational skills; from body language to conversation starters. There is a lot of focus on how to get people to enjoy talking to you, including some top notch advice on how to be a good listener and how to show people that you're interested in what they have to say. I hadn't ever thought about conversation in this light and I really think the author did a fantastic job with it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Talk to Anyone?

There are quite a few humorous moments throughout the book which is quite rare in books about self progression. I love the fact that it's impactful without being too heavy or monotonous.

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

Initially I did listen in one sitting but I'm planning to listen to it again over the space of a week or two so I can really focus on it and get even more out of it.

Any additional comments?

Conversation is such an integral part of life. Feeling confident when you're speaking to people can make such a difference to your experience with others. I feel a lot more secure in myself now and I already feel less anxious about socialising (including when talking to people I find intimidating!). I highly recommend this book and I think anyone could benefit from it. It's great to learn how to really have time for other people and keep our communication with one another healthy and enjoyable!

This book has completely changed the way I feel about myself. After a life full of difficulties and self loathing, I feel like I'm finally on a journey to a more positive, happy life. Jennifer Alison's approach is based on individuals and individual experience. Unlike other books of its kind, this book does not offer a bunch of unhelpful psycho-babble. Rather Ms Alison manages to speak directly to the reader - there were times I was thinking, "how does she know I do that?!" The exercises are very helpful even though they felt a little silly at the start. I feel like I can finally see myself with honest eyes now - not overly critical eyes. I can't recommend this enough!

What made the experience of listening to How to Stop Procrastination & Get More Done in Less Time! the most enjoyable?

This book is exactly what I needed in my life. It called me out on a few bad habits (organising drawers and cupboards when I should be working!) and helped me understand and change them. I think all of us procrastinate from time to time so this is a book that will be relevant to pretty much anyone. Very helpful!

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

I really love the narrator's voice. I found the book immediately engaging because of his tone and delivery.
