What did you love best about All or Nothing?

I loved how I finally got to read Adam and Rico's story. I've been waiting for them to get together since I met them in Jonah and Gideons book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is a hard choice but I'll go with Adam because who can resist a ginger firefighter.

What about Nick J. Russo’s performance did you like?

He did a great job bring these two characters to life.

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

I'm a sucker for all the mushy parts. I'm a complete romantic and loved how Rico took a trip to Texas.

Any additional comments?

Felice is one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn't stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter - his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She's not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

What did you love best about Challenge?

This was a great story about the prodigy and the "player" who fall for each other even though they never planned to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Challenge?

The moment in the OR before the surgery happened.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

That was the first time I listened to these narrators. They both did a great job especially with the accent.

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

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

This was my first book by Amy Daws and I can definitely say it will not be my last. This book drew me into the story from the first page and didn't let go until I finished it. I can't wait to read the next book.

The ice is a cold mistress. As the league's most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he's more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he's just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who's not blinded by his celebrity, he's feeling the heat - and the pressure to save her from herself.

I really enjoy all of Sawyer's books but my favorite series is this one. I was unable to put this book down and read it in one sitting. I can't wait to read the next one.

Drew Forrester is a total adrenaline junkie. His high of choice? Cars. The faster, the better. He's been making waves in Maryland's underground racing circuit since he crossed the state line, and after speaking with him, we know he's not hitting the brakes anytime soon. So what exactly does it take to burn rubber and make a name for yourself in a world where the only rule is that there are no rules? You gotta be hungry. You gotta have balls. And you can never back down.

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father's disappearance, her mother's erratic behavior, and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James - a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her. Raine is drawn to Torin's dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks, and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine.

Where does Runes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Runes is defined at the top of my favorite audiobooks. The narrator does a great job with capturing the different characters personalities. I especially love how she does Torin's brittish accent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Torin because he seems mysterious throughout the whole book. He also seems to always pop up when Raine needs him.

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

Stephanie does a great job with making sure each character has a distinctly different voice. Sometimes narrators tend to blend voices so they sound similar but Stephanie does not do this. She did a perfect job.

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

The end of the book was a big shock but I feel Raine is going to fix it anyway she can.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.

Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it's like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super-hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo. Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her.

I loved having another book from Cora POV. It's great to see how she changes the bad things that have happened to her into something that she uses to help other people. I hope we get to see more of Dev in future books. He has become one of my favorite people in this series. I can't wait until the next book comes out.

A great book

My favorite scene is when Malachi tells Lela how he feels after she gets hit by the van.

Amy does a great job narrating this book. I've enjoyed listening to several other books read by her.

I loved the whole Eternal Guardian series. I love listening to books while driving and at work but the narrator for these books made me glad I also bought the kindle books. The way she performed the women's voices made my skin crawl. It was way to high pitched.

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

What did you like best about Dark Witch? What did you like least?

I enjoyed the story but the narrator made it hard to listen. The narrator did a poor job in the sound of the different characters voices. All the Irish people sounded the same.

Would you be willing to try another one of Katherine Kellgren’s performances?

I don't think I would.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Maybe

Get a new narrator.
