this was actually a pretty good book. I need to Blake wasn't having sex with every single person she stumbled across. There wasn't a whole bunch of drama between the guys in her life. And it wasn't full of the action like Affliction was but I actually found this book to be a little more enjoyable. I haven't really enjoyed her books as much since Affliction came out. I actually listen to this audio book on regular speed instead of trying to speed through the book to get to the good stuff.

In this program, Les Brown goes straight to the source of our possibilities and dials into the fact that there are people along the way who will be important to you and your success. We don’t make it alone. But when it comes down to it, the captain of your ship, the power in your life, the force for your achievement is you. It’s you! Others may keep it from being too difficult at times. But it’s yours to do. It’s not the times.

I listen to these little motivation books on my way to work or driving to certain places that's going to take a little while. Mostly for me getting motivated isn't always easy but staying motivated is even harder because you can listen to something or get a good pep talk and a few hours later it's out of your head. This short audiobook is a great way to stay motivated while you are driving to work or to a business meeting or to anything that you want to stay pepped up for.

This was a great book but the narrator is horrible. Something that audible.com tends to do that on purpose but it does happen is released one book if then it might take a year or two for the next one to come out. And I know it has nothing to do with Audible but with the author deciding to make an audio version of the book. Because some books don't do well in audio form depending on the narrator's. In my opinion this would have been one of those series. I truly enjoyed this first book and decided to physically read the next books in the series and they were really good. But when the audio version came out it's kind of crappy. I would say you are better off actually reading the book and still listening to it because the voices of the narrator does is really bad butt the story is really good so it kind of evens itself out I'm still picking up the new audio books because one just came out but I've read everything available in this series and it is definitely worth it even was a crappy narrator. Hope everything is spelled correctly because I'm speaking this review.

This is an audiobook that I have to over and over again. I love the story I love the author imagination. When it comes down to the series what I like is that you don't have to read all the books in order you can actually skip around and switch him up. I truly enjoy the stories with Pia and Dragos. But some of the stories of the other characters are just as good.

I just finished reading this whole series, well all the books available. I have to say I truly enjoyed it it wasn't overly exciting but exciting enough with new characters to keep you interested. Now for me, it is hard to keep me interested in a series because I have read so many books. I don't know if I'd read a book or if it's just a repeat of something I've already read. And this was one of those books that I haven't come across yet. Yes there are vampire and werewolves and demons and witches all that stuff but it's the main character that kind of changes things.

One thing that almost made me stop reading this book was when I was closer to the end in the series and they change the character. They introduced a new character and made the next book about him and I didn't think I was going to like the book because of that at. Have to say they definitely made it interesting and it caught my attention in the next book after that was even better once you get to book 8 in book 9 you'll just want more. I hope they put book 10 and audio form so I don't have to read it again and I can just listen to it but it's great series I hope you enjoy. Definitely worth it.

Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

I expected more from this book. I was slightly disapointed mostly because i thought this book was going to be a thriller not a romance novel. However, I have to admit It was entertaining. The author did a great job and for the first time in who knows how long I was able to read (listen) to a book that really kept me guessing. This is a book tht i will be listening to again.

This is a book i wasnt too sure about. I really like Julie Kagawas writing style so i figure I'd just take a chance. Ended up listing to the first few minutes and changing my mind, but once i decided to finish the first chapter it was pretty good. Actually Great. This is one of the best book ive listened to this year. Once you get into this book it will be hard to put down. I highly recommend this book, and the second book in this series is even better. I will be listening to this book again.
