Lucy Hutton has always been certain that the nice girl can get the corner office. She's charming and accommodating and prides herself on being loved by everyone at Bexley & Gamin. Everyone except for coldly efficient, impeccably attired, physically intimidating Joshua Templeman. And the feeling is mutual.

THE HATING GAME is the most fun I have had with audible in quite some time. You will fall in love with her characters and her scenes are so vivid that I had a movie reel of it running through my mind the entire time. This is a fresh take on a relatively predictable plot, although with that being said, Sally Thorne has managed to make it her own. I have no doubt that you will receive almost 12 hours of enjoyment. My only regret is that this is her only book with audible at this time. Get busy Sally, because I want more...Please!

Camilla Hutchenson, countess, sponsor, darling of the ton, has reached a staggering level of social power. But one man has managed to distract her attention from her schedule of charity endeavours and teas - and not just because he holds the deed to her estate. The man in question, Archibald Warner, is the new Earl of Sachse. Though at first meeting he suspects his new ward of being nothing more than a social bit of fluff, the more time passes, the more he finds himself drawn to her.

Meet the Sassy Belles. They're strong as a mint julep, sweet as peach cobbler, and no matter what, they stick together. There are only two seasons in Tuscaloosa - football and waiting-for-football. When Lewis Heart, football announcer and voice of the Crimson Tide, vanishes after an impromptu romp with Vivi Ann McFadden at the Fountain Mist Motel, Vivi does what any Southern woman would do: Call her best friend, Blake O'Hara Heart, attorney-at-law.

Ok. so I loved the first installment of The Clan MacDougall Series, and although I finished this second in the series, wanting to know how it would end...I didn't like it. I was so disappointed. I hated the narrator, Brad Wills. He sounds like he is yelling the whole time, and his voices for the women is very unappealing. So sorry to give this negative review, especially when the review I gave for Book 1 was so good. This goes to show the importance of choosing the right narrator. Had she chosen Erin Jones, (Narrator of Book 1), perhaps this review would have been different. Unfortunately, Brad Wills narrates the rest of the series, which means that I will not be purchasing.
Credit worthy? NO!

I Loved Laiden't Daughter: Clan MacDougall, Book 1, by Susan Tisdale and narrated by Erin Jones. So sweet and tender. The characters were ones that I will remember for a long time, as they were brought to life by the talented narrator, Erin Jones.
This book really illustrated to me the value of a good narrator.

A Gentle Rain by Deborah Smith was my first of her books to read, and what an amazing gift it was. I bought this book on sale, and it will not be the last of Ms. Smith's books that I treat myself to. I loved it. Precious characters that were developed well, very nice plot that came back to itself nicely. Smart. Fun. Lovely.

Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers. The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field. After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start.

Listen, Giving Chase: Chase Brothers, Book 1 was adorable...very enjoyable. This is a fun, sweet, novel. Entertaining.
This is what we want when we buy a book like this. Are there lessons to learn...probably not...morals to the story...no...but if you want to be entertained...this is going to fit the bill.

In the fall of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

O.K. It is Nicholas Sparks...he is an amazing story teller. I gave the story 5 stars, which, in terms of story telling, it deserves. The Best of Me is quality writing, with outstanding character development, and storyline...but, I have to ask myself...did I come away with anything? The answer is an absolute "no", unless feeling depressed is something to brag about. On the one hand, I love the way he describes the characters and situations, although the ending was very predictable. Sean Prat has a great voice and does an amazing job of narration.
Nicholas Sparks will not be on my short list of books to purchase anymore...
Don't waste your credit - unless you are in the mood to feel basically hopeless...
