Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students, and trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn't important. She can't let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing.... Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a living, breathing teenage boy.

What did you love best about Misconduct?

Penelope Douglas did a great job building up the characters. You want to feel for and with them.

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked the story line.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Carrie Brach and Guy Locke ?

Probably not. As odd as this probably sounds they just didn't sound anything like how I envisioned the characters. Plus not a lot of emotion was put into the narration.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In Esten's classroom when Jack was talking to her. I was like Nooooooo.... and then they went outside and I was like NOOOOOOOO....... Very emotional.

Any additional comments?

I love this book. The narration was not one of my favorites but the story itself was perfect.

Callum Hunt's summer break isn't like other kids'. His closest companion is a Chaos-ridden wolf, Havoc. His father suspects him of being secretly evil. And, of course, most kids aren't heading back to the magical world of the Magisterium in the fall. It's not easy for Call...and it gets even harder after he checks out his basement and discovers that his dad might be trying to destroy both him and Havoc. Call escapes to the Magisterium - but things only intensify there.

If you could sum up The Copper Gauntlet in three words, what would they be?

Trust, Friendship & Awesome

What other book might you compare The Copper Gauntlet to and why?

This book is somewhat like Harry Potter. Always trying to do the right thing and save people.

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

Audio books in general bring the books to life for me but Paul Boehmer did an exceptional job with The Copper Gauntlet. I can't wait for the next book.

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

No major reaction. I just enjoyed it very much.

Any additional comments?

This is such a fantastic series. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book.

Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

Would you listen to Wallbanger again? Why?

Yes. This was such a comical book. Whenever I need a good laugh this will be the book I go to.

Clive

What about Heather Smith’s performance did you like?

She was fantastic. I can't imagine reading this book out loud and yet she did it so well.

Caroline and Simon

Any additional comments?

This was such a great listen. I've been wanting to read it for awhile but didn't have the time. I'm actually glad that I did the audio first.

Kyon Ensin finally has what he's always wanted: possession of Kricket Hollowell, the priestess who foresees the future. Together, their combined power will be unrivaled. Kricket, however, doesn't crave the crown of Ethar - she has an unbreakable desire to live life on her own terms, a life that she desperately wants to share with her love, Trey Allairis.

What made the experience of listening to Darken the Stars the most enjoyable?

Kate Rudd... She does such an amazing job reading this series. The book was fantastic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Kricket. She's so strong and determined. Kyon was also surprisingly likable in this book. I didn't want to like him at all but then again that's what Amy does best. She makes you like the unlikable.

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

EVERYTHING!!! It was like watching a movie in my head. She reads the characters with such a likeness. You know exactly who's talking when she reads. Trey, Kyon, Phlix, Kricket & OMG Wayra (LOL.. I freaking love that guy). Even as new characters come in you can place them. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE Kate Rudd.

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

YES!!!!

Any additional comments?

This book sent me on an emotional roller coaster ride. It made me mad, sad, angry, heartbroken, wishful and hopeful. Amy has captivated me with yet another one of her masterpieces. I can only hope we get a book 4.
