I love all of JA Huss books. I marathoned listening to every one of them in the past (some I reread and I never do that).
I love Johnathan as a narrator
I liked these books, just not as well as her other books. I usually cannot stop listening. This series was different. I just didn’t find it pulling and keeping me in. But then I may also still be hung up on the fact the books are only 7hrs in length.( plus 20-30 min of EOBS by both authors sorry a little overkill)

Maddie isn’t looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true north these days - but at least she’s still standing. The military taught Tyler about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters - but when it mattered most, he wasn’t.

Let me start by saying I just love love love J A Huss. I have listened to almost all her books on audible at least once. (Those >8 hrs)
I love her character development, her writing and hot sex scene. She is such a talented writer
This book sorry to say was not one of my favorites. It just seemed to lack depth, action or something. Maybe just too wordy
1- It is way too short. It was just getting started and it ended. At first I thought the book didn’t download completely.
I usually don’t even buy audiobooks less than 8 hrs. This one seemed even shorter than that. ( maybe that was including both EOBS by both authors [which I loved]) or because of all the bantering between the good angel and the bad angel. It was also filled with so much sarcasm. I felt like I was at a Deadpool movie. ( don’t get me wrong I loved Deadpool but...).
2- I HATE a cliffhanger! One where you have to purchase the next book to see what happens. Otherwise it is just an incomplete story or part I. WHY? No one likes that. I feel like it is such a ploy to just get more money. Very frustrating to me.
Julie is such a talented writer. Each of her books in a series could be read as a stand alone but yet they are all connected. BRILLIANT
Love Johnathan, love his narration. Love Ava as well.
Sorry! I am sad I am just a little disappointed in this one :(

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

I remember having to read "Hawaii" in High School. That is what this book is like. I really enjoyed this book even if it was really long. I had to refer to my computer or husband regarding some history facts, places, or people but I felt I really learned more about history than I did in school (or maybe I just can't remember that far back :) I loved the characters, and how their lives intertwine. I cannot wait for book 2 to come out later this year..

What would make the perfect man? That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....

Nice story: cute skinny girl living next to the jerk that is a hunk but not really a jerk but actually the "perfect" guy. Romance, sex, suspense, murder, this book has it all. Even the Narrator was good which can make or break even a good book

Three stars only because of the narrator, otherwise a 5 star book. I listened to "Smooth Talking Stranger" a year or so ago. I recently discovered the first two of the series. I loved "Sugar Daddy".Both of those books were great and had wonderful narrators. This book however, I could barely finished because of the narrator. Her voice is so wrong for this book. Her voices for the women made them seem old. It wasn't even right for the men, especially Hardy, I was so glad when the book finished and not because of the story.
