They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it's true. The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares. He is a brilliant lawyer. A skilled criminal. A beautiful liar. A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover. Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn't leaving until he takes me with him.

I don’t always love the aggressive dude kind of books because they have little depth and inevitably there is an monotony of crassness that annoys me. Not so with this book. Sure, a jerk uses base words but it added to character development rather than detracting from the story overall. The story though was full of great twists and turns and the reader can truly get why the emotions justify interpersonal judgement absurdity. The readers did a fantastic job bringing it home. A great listen.

Priceless, book one: "My name is Rylee, and I am a Tracker." When children go missing and the Humans have no leads, I'm the one they call. I am their last hope in bringing home the lost ones. I salvage what they cannot. I'm on the FBI's wanted list. I have a werewolf for a pet, a Witch of a best friend, and no need for anyone else in my life. But when a salvage starts to spin out of control, help comes from a most unexpected direction.

Would you consider the audio edition of Rock Hard to be better than the print version?

I only listened so I have no idea but I enjoyed the narrator and felt they added to the story.

What did you like best about this story?

Okay so this was really good. The story layers intersected beautifully. There were reasons for the character motivations. The male lead worked hard to give space and time to the female lead whoneeded it. It took time for them to actually get to the physical part and there was follow up for why. I did not review the first book in this series because I did not feel the same way but this book exceeded my expectations and I applaude Ms. Singh for truly hitting the mark.

What about Justine O. Keef’s performance did you like?

Her performance was impassioned and well done. I am always astounded when I forget a female is reading a male role. Bravo!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Holding back from passion takes strength but the bond it forms is Rock Hard.

What disappointed you about Claimed?

Look, I am not opposed to sex scenes but this was painful. A thesaurus would benefit this author. I felt like this book was written by scribing a session of an adult with limited vocabulary playing with Barbies .

Would you ever listen to anything by Evangeline Anderson again?

I am horrible with names, so in a year I may be duped into another one. It will not be intentional.

Would you be willing to try another one of Anne Johnstonbrown’s performances?

Sure she was fine given the material.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Claimed?

I am not sure I could not even get to the end. The plot has potential. But whoever edited this book should have definately told the author to repeat any word, much less shock value words, 8-10 times in a paragragh is not going to win an audience.

Any additional comments?

I know I am a bit harsh but these books are expensive. This was so disappointing. I get an author trying to do erotica. But there are much better works out there. Save your credit. If you like this kind of plot try Grim by M.K. Eidem or Abducting Abby or Hunter's Claim by S.E. Smith (Although those are a good bit cheesy as well at least they have more of a variety of how to describe female genitalia.)

After years of playing the rake to hide a dark family secret, the Duke of Aversley feels tainted beyond redemption and cynical beyond repair. Never does he imagine hope will come in the form of a quirky, quick-witted lady determined to win the heart of another gentleman. Thanks to a painfully awkward past, Lady Amelia De Vere long ago relinquished the notion she was a flower that had yet to blossom.

Where does My Fair Duchess rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was good. It was fun. It was easy to listen to. Not my top listens but still lovely.

What did you like best about this story?

I never got to the "Okay move on." monent that can happen when listening to regency romance. I mean come on we all get there, but there were enough twists to not hit that mark in this book.

What about Tim Campbell’s performance did you like?

Fair but I will say it was easy to fall asleep to.

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

The scene between mother and son.

Any additional comments?

I like the full flushing out of characters. There is only one true villian which is difficult and well done.

What did you like best about this story?

Sometimes stories of certain genre's become formulaic. Ms. Suttle has veered away from the usual and stretched out the adventure. I think she has done a fantastic job.

I liked to cookie eating scene. It was charming.

One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it's definitely personal.

All of Faith Hunter's books are among my favorites. The characters stay in my mind and I always want to know what happens next. This book is no different and I will listen to it more than once or twice.

What did you like best about this story?

Oh so many things to choose from. I love that she has a relationship with someone who is all in. I liked the MOC holding back from touching her. The Younger Bros interplay is fantastic. If I keep going it will seem like gushing.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Ms. Hvam is Jane/Beast. I cannot imagine any other reader. From the first book to now she has settled into the character's skin. The Cherokee words flow more smoothly. I have actually tried other authors because Ms. Hvam was the reader.

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

I like the waking up with Bruiser. It is clear Jane can handle herself but being able to settle into an embrace has its own magic. She can gain strength from her romantic relationship and the one with the Younger Bros. Molly????

Would you listen to Sleight of Hand again? Why?

I very much enjoyed this book and will most likely listen again when the next book in the series is coming available for a refresher.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sleight of Hand?

Over all I liked the characters and the fact that this is strong female lead with earned skills.

What about Kimberly Henrie’s performance did you like?

She did a fine job. I can hear other readers read it as well. There are a few pronunciation issues that she could work on but it wasn't bad at all. Amanda Ronconi, might add a little sass Ms. Henrie left on the table.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I was excited to hear what happened next.

I love finding a new series but hate waiting for the next book to become available. SO HURRY UP Mr. HENWICK!!!!!
