What would have made Children of Eden better?

I listened to the entire book because the narrator was perfect. The story was different and I love sci-fi. I felt like I invested so much time into the story and it ended so bad. It was an empty disappointing experience

Kirby Caldwell never planned on falling for a married man. She certainly never anticipated being swept off her feet by his 20-year old nephew Grip. The odds are stacked against them in this fast-paced, action-packed sequel. Will their love triumph despite new romantic interests and past enemies looking to get even? Your Spouse, My Sponsor 2 is a rollicking ride filled with drama, betrayal, and unexpected twists that will leave you in awe.

After high school ends, life begins for 17-year old Angel after falling into the clutches of a sexy, smooth-talking pimp named Jay. Instead of taking the path that leads to a bright future, she instead takes a different, much darker route. James "Jay" Anderson not only opens Angel's eyes to a whole new world, he also introduces her to a quick and convenient way of making cold, hard cash. Floating on a dream, Angel obliges, unaware of the hidden danger that also comes with the territory.

I can't decide whether it was the similar sounding names or the shallow and unfinished personalities of the characters or the long drawn out slow sometimes boring and confusing story or maybe the dialogue that was mostly cursing or the way the characters professed their undying love for each other after a few days. Worst money I ever spend. The ending was terrible. Idk if this author wrote this to finish up a book deal but it wasn't with an hour of my life. The performer was great but there were weird pauses in his narration where there should not have been but it didn't happen often

Who can Kiam trust when friends behave as ruthlessly as enemies and the person that he is most loyal to is the very one that has a gun aimed at his back? Reeling in a bloodthirsty rage, he takes to the streets with only one mission on his mind - vengeance. Blood-stained hands and deceitful hearts have destroyed an undying allegiance. As Kiam unleashes his vicious murder game on known adversaries, he overlooks the true enemy which is nearest. However, spilled blood will lead him to the truth.

From the title I expected strong powerful women but all I got was drug addicts, who abandoned their kids at the drop of a hat and chased behind the worst of men. Rape, physical and verbal abuse. It's just not my kind of entertainment.

Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and New York Times best-selling author Russell Simmons shares the most fundamental key to success - meditation - and guides listeners to use stillness as a powerful tool to access their potential. In the New York Times best-seller Super Rich, Russell Simmons proved that to be rich is more than just having money in the bank - wealth is about balance, joy, and conscientious living. In Success Through Stillness, Simmons shows the connection between inner peace and outward success.
