This collection of short tales is vivid and explicit. If you want some night time entertainment, whether alone or with a special someone, then turn this on and have some fun. It is guaranteed to make you -- well, it's guaranteed to work you up.

The stories are varied and interesting with some character development to a point. The narrator has a sexy voice with great inflection--not the typical robot we sometimes here.

I expected the typical historical fiction with romance and drama, but nothing like what I heard. The twists kept coming, and the narration kept me interested until the very end. There are some violent scenes, so if you are of faint of heart, this is not the book for you. However, even the violent scenes were performed impeccably.

The story takes place in 1820 when a young woman takes her son traveling to America. The conditions she faces at work, with family and in society are real and believable. The twists and turns this roller coaster takes you on is a wild ride.

Do you want to hear a sexy hot story with an incredibly sexy voice? then be sure to get this title. I got it, not realizing it is the second book in the series. I now have to go back and get book 1.

We follow the main character on a journey of sexual exploration and a quest for love that she was unaware she even began. The "sort of" couple take the Ultimate vacation to a swingers fantasy and learn of the different types of relationships of others while they cement their own. Not every relationship is the same, and these two characters learn to to define theirs.It also depicted how awkwardness and uncertainty can sometimes be a part of building relationships.

The writing is well done and kept me interested, and the narration was superb! I finished this book in two sittings. The characters interact well, and the story was developed enough to keep me interested. Of course, it is not some great masterpiece of literature that some of the reviews suggest a book should be-- but it is entertaining-- well written and EROTIC!

I often get audiobooks dreading the flat "robotic" voice that could possibly be attached. Not with this title, as the narrator uses great inflection and an almost "storyteller" tone rather than a fake actress type or a a monotone. I will definitely be looking into more titles by both the author and narrator.

Piper Willow dies the summer after her high school graduation and finds herself in a spiritual terminal called the Station. She's given only two choices: Move on to the unknown where she'll be faced to spend an eternity in her own personal hell or be trained as a Volunteer and return to Earth as the subconscious for a person in need of outside assistance. Does Piper have what it takes to save a life, to be the nagging voice inside another person's head? Or will she fail and end up lost and tormented... forever?

Four Stars Overall

The story opens with a date rape, mostly likely from a drug. It then proceeds to a car crash which kills her friend, a funeral, cutting to cope with emotions and a suicide. I do not normally read/listen to Young Adult, so this is out of my genre. It felt rushed to me because all of that happens in the Prologue and the first two chapters. I had many questions that were not answered. The first was "if everyone blamed her for the friend's death, why was she not arrested for vehicular homicide?" But this might be an adult way of thinking, rather than a teen's. Something like this seemed to get little or no mention, yet how she manipulated (or at least suggested) her first assignment went into great details--- what to buy, how to clean. his music, waking up etc. Even the emotional and social topics discussed could have been explored more in depth, as this is only a 4 hour audiobook--there was plenty of time to go deeper into intense issues. The story reminded me of the 1980s movie, the Heavenly Kid. Suicide, weigh station, help someone else from the afterlife, prevent suicide. (in the movie it was accidental suicides). The second assignment seemed superficial, and again, the author had a great set up but did not explore the possibilities.

With that being said, Ms. Dawson has a terrific ability to describe settings and emotions. I did not find repetitive words or phrases, grammatical errors or narration errors. The vocabulary and story telling were well done, both by author and narrator, I just wish it went deeper---but that is a good thing, since it kept me interested. I will definitely be looking into Ms. Dawson's other titles.

One thing that might have bothered me was the first person point of view in the present tense. I absolutely abhor it. At first I kept replaying it, because I did not feel connected. Then I realized it was the tense that bothered me... but that is my own personal preference. Again, that might be a genre thing, I know YA does a lot of first person because the teens connect with the main character that way.

Overall, it was a good book that should have gone deeper. However, I did not yet read/listen to the next books in the series, so perhaps some of my questions will be answered in those books. As for the cliffhanger, I enjoy them if the next books are available--which the audiobook of this title is not yet published--but the ebook is.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
