Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years - before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

I love these narrators. Anything with Sebastian York. He would be sexy reading the phone book.
The story had twist and turns I wasn't expecting but keep the story fresh. I'll definitely listen to more of Penelope Ward.

The book had a typical twist that Colleen is so good with but thus wasn't my favorite CH book. The female narrator was awful and oddly enough our female character read audible books as one of her jobs.

Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up.

Kyle Mills did a great job getting out this book for Vince Flynn. I hope we can expect more Mitch Rapp in the future. You couldn't tell the difference between authors.

I'll miss Stan in any future releases but it was a fitting end for him.

Colleen Hoover is a master at story telling. A couple of times while listening on my way to work, I had to stop the audible and switch to a differnt book. It was just too emotional. If you are a fan of Colleen Hoover, get this book. It is great.

Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

I had heard and read such great things about this series but I found the first one just OK. It reminded me of Stephanie Plum series but at least the main characters enjoyed more sexual action than poor ole Stephanie.

This is OK but I'm not going to do the investment in time and money to read this series.
