My name is Dima, and I'm a Dragon. I'm also going to die soon. It's a battle I've waged most of my life, but now the odds are looking crappy. Before I go up flames, I have to find a way to save my horde and make sure my secret treasure is safe. There is one way I could stick around a bit longer, but the men I've met aren't exactly lining up to save me.

Where does The Vixen and the Vet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 3. I read it as part of the Romance package and then I bought it.

What did you like best about this story?

It was real. It was heartbreaking, it was love in all it's forms.

Which scene was your favorite?

could not pick just one...

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

Yes! and I stayed up late on a work night, then took an extra long lunch, and even found myself in the parking lot of a local shopping plaza listening for a few more minutes before I went home to hubby, kids, homework, dinner and real life!

Any additional comments?

I experienced every emotion under the sun. I laughed, I cried, I got excited, I yelled at the characters...I fell in love!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dragon Finds Forever to be better than the print version?

Just as good! The narrater was really good and was able to tell the story and get the audience really involved in the adventure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Van. I want a dragon of my own! He is wonderful!

Which scene was your favorite?

When every previous character comes out to help Van change again.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A must watch love story and adventure!

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

the story was good, the narrator was good, but slow... still trying to finish it. Still trying to get through it. tight story, tight world, just a lot of building and not a lot of energy.

What was most disappointing about Dannika Dark’s story?

lots of building of the world, not enough movement. very nice world just a lot of building. Think of a lego fortress, very tight creating and forming of the bottom of the structure so she can spread out, but I'm just bored with the building instead of the story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Poole’s performances?

yes

What character would you cut from Seven Years?

Beckett

What did you like best about Fury of Fire? What did you like least?

The writer is limited to colloquialisms, slang, and pop culture. I found it very hard to listen to 200+ year old dragons talking as if they walked of the set from a CW teen drama. I enjoyed the story, and felt compelled to get the next book, but, I read it instead and it was not so bad to read the words. It was torture to listen to the OMG's, and LOLs, and references to TV shows.

What did you like best about this story?

The author created a nice Dragon society, and a shifter culture that caught my imagination and wanted a happy ending.

What didn’t you like about Benjamin L. Darcie’s performance?

First book by him I have listened to and I will think twice about getting another one. I don't know if it was his performance or the writing that did not lend itself to be read out loud. When you say OMG, and LOL you sound like you are 15, not a nurse practitioner in her third decade, not a dragon who slept for 200 years. At least when you read OMG your brain substitutes the words and you can move on.

Could you see Fury of Fire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes it would come right after Vampire Diaries, and Gossip Girl. It was written for that age group even though it has a lot of explicit sex scenes.

Any additional comments?

I read the series in two weeks, and can't wait for the next one. THe story line and the characters intrigued and gripped me, I just had to read it and not listen to it.

Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries.

I have read each of the books in the series now I am going back and listening to each book. It only gets better each character is perfect. The narrator has the voice and inflections and quirks of each character. This is an amazing series and it is read phenomenally. Great writing, great characters and great reading! It does not get any better then this!
