Madhuri Shekar is a genius playwright. This imaginative tale of a traditional Indian mother worried that her 29 year old American-raised daughter is not yet married is told through telephone calls. A brilliantly written drama that gradually increases the pace until you are holding your breath without realizing it until the shocking denouement. Don’t miss this one. It will stay with you, churning in the back of your mind, for some time.

Two blood-spattered strangers awake, locked in the trunk of a car - with a murdered cop and the smoking gun. Aside from raging headaches and no idea what's happened, they appear to have nothing in common. Troy thinks it's 2001 and he's still a combat surgeon fighting terrorists in Afghanistan. Emmy believes it's 2002 and she's still grifting a living from the streets of L.A.

Tim Tigner aligns characters that you care about with those you love to hate in a roller coaster ride with a surprise loop de loop at the end. It’s the kind of book where you find yourself holding your breath, awaiting the outcome of a perilous scene, and almost, like a good horror movie, you find yourself yelling silently “Get out of there! You’ll be caught!” I have found a new favorite author!

Seamless performance of an unexpected plot line replete with emotion, adequate but not excessive angst, and enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested and guessing. This is the type of novel that makes you happy to don your wireless headphones and do the dishes or laundry instead of sitting down to your favorite television show, it is just that good!

After ten months without a date, I'm eager to go to the hottest new ticket in town, Club Jasmine. I deserve a night of fun. I've worked hard, and I finally got a promotion. But for one night, I'm going to let loose. That's when I see him. The drop-dead gorgeous Jake Stone. With his godlike physique, pure blue eyes, and chiseled jawline, he might be the hottest guy I've ever laid eyes on. A total heartstopper.

I usually write reviews when a book is especially good, but this was worthy of a negative star rating! The narration was beyond annoying, it was so painful that I couldn’t follow the storyline. The characters were flat and predictable, and the plot was a mishmash of bad dialogue and wandering, boring prose. Don’t waste your time and money!!

I spent 20 years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted. I'm done being invisible. It's time to move on. A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He's kind, sexy, and attentive - everything a girl could want.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. All I wanted was for him to come back to me. Then, Jackson Emery appeared. He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love.

A story of redemption and discovery that took me a few chapters to get hooked, but became impossible to pause. A memorable view into family and community powers to regulate behavior and perception until one’s true self is subjugated and lost. The author sprinkles in flashbacks to the main character’s childhood that are heart rending. Kudos to both author and narrator!

It was the deal of the decade, if not the century. A small, insignificant company on the edge of bankruptcy had discovered an alchemist's dream; a miraculous polymer, that when coated on any vehicle, was the equivalent of 30 inches of steel. With bloody conflicts surging in Iraq and Afghanistan, the polymer promises to save thousands of lives and change the course of both wars.

Brian Haig takes you in the back rooms of Washington’s political dealings so credibly that you KNOW it is happening. And the ending was a true surprise. Scott Brick was a masterful narrator, allowing the reader to be immersed in the story, so consistent were the various characters’ voices. This book has re-motivated me to seek congressional term limits, and heavier oversight of government contracts and PACs.

Good political conspiracy thrillers set in DC are rare, and this rates higher than most! Excellent character development, plot twists that keep you guessing and constant heart-in-your-throat action all in a plot that speeds to the final crescendo! I will definitely buy other audiobooks from this author. The narrator also does such an excellent job with each character’s accent and speech pattern that the reader is able to live the story, rather than be distracted by the voice or trying to figure out which character is speaking.

A politically astute thriller that kept me listening well into the night. The first book of its type with a protagonist, Joe Demarco, who is just a regular guy, an attorney working for Congress that has no military background, no extraordinary physical fighting skills, and is unknowledgeable about firearms. But he is doggedly persistent, takes risks with courage and gets the job done. I will definitely continue this series!
