Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Silent Six is an eye opener into the brutalities of the prison state of North Korea. This book presents the Auschwitz of our generation--Camp 13-- that the world lives with and accepts.

What other book might you compare Silent Six to and why?

I would compare this book to escape from Camp 14 because both books present the horrors of the North Korean camps.

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

A sense of eagerness to move more into the book.

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

The rescue of the children from the camp.

Can't wait to finish the Trilogy.

Japanese Dark Hunger is a novella about love. Love isn't always simple because passion is as numberless as pebbles on a beach. Junko and Tadao have the perfect marriage, but what happens when Junko accidently, while flying to Jamaica, discovers interracial erotica on her husband's IPad? The situation gives a new meaning to the word obedience for Junko. Fortunately for Junko, Jamaica is the ideal location to begin becoming the "perfect wife" for Tadao.

Frank Boston, retired Air Force Pararescueman, experienced two separate incidents involving three back-to-back deaths early in his Air Force career. He concluded after the second incident that he has a strange power he calls nose-smell, a sort of mystic instinct of seeing who will die in a group of related deaths. He goes years without using his ability until a small girl drowns in a pond on the nearby Air Force base. He knows two more water-related deaths will soon follow.

She is met at the airport by her Japanese friend Akako and together they explore the 'wild side' of the Tenderloin. Cha spends the night with Akako in her Bay Area home. Akako's black gardeners are men that know exactly what they want, and Cha promptly discovers she has a taste for following their every command.

Would you consider the audio edition of Bollywood Cha in San Francisco to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narrator brings out the scenes in the Tenderloin as if you were there. Cici Kay can do wanders in narration.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Crazy as it sounds I liked Jasmine even though as a character she was not developed. I think it was the mystery and aloofness. Would love to see Kelly Kitano pick-up on more Tenderloin stories.

Which character – as performed by Cici Kay – was your favorite?

Akako! I love Akako because I am hooked on the series. It is always a thrill to see what Akako gets involved in.

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

The scene when Cha takes the key to open the shed by the pool was erotic.

Any additional comments?

Would love to see Kelly write more short titles. Maybe a bundle of Cha stories.

Akako's Addiction is a collection of juicy interracial stories: "First Taste", "Back to Yokota", "Akako's Wedding", and "Akako in India". Akako is a naughty girl loyal to all sex involving flesh and juice. To look at Akako, a traditional Japanese woman raised in Japan, most people would never imagine the sexual taboos she crossed - always leaving wet-mouthed, with her brain desiring more - leading to her addiction!

If you could sum up Akako's Addiction in three words, what would they be?

What did you like best about this story?

The fun participation on Akako's part from beginning to end. She gets the job done!

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

The emotions, the desires, and the tempo. Cici is the best erotica narrator out there!

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

Akako's Addiction should be read with caution. One may find they have a similar addiction! Akako is the woman every girl secretly desires of being--and the perfect wife to boot!
