Beautiful Illusions is a Cinderella romance with a twist - and what a twist it is! Attorney Iris Snowe drinks too much, eats too much, and spends too much. Her sex life has been as spectacularly unsuccessful as her law practice, so she spends her evenings in her tiny apartment watching bad TV, talking to her cat, and rescuing pit bulls. And her name might be Iris, but it should be Jade. As in jaded, which is how she feels about romance and men in general.

Ee-yew! The narration is just not right. The voices and accents just don't suit the characters. Having a female narrator do male voices is s crap-shoot. Some work, some don't.

An unforgettable new novella from number-one New York Times best-selling author Jamie McGuire. Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret… until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!) - and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait.

The female narrator is a poor fit for the story. She sounds like a kid, which doesn't fit with a character who is newly married and having hot sex. Ugh! The story is fine & the male voice is great.

Yet the minute she steps out of line, her parents transfer her to Cambial Academy: the prestigious boarding school that her great-grandfather founded for students with supernatural abilities, or "specials."

How could the performance have been better?

The adults sounded like idiots, and many of the "high school" students sounded like congested grade schoolers.

It ties right into Divergent and continues on with the story. I'm looking forward to part 3.

What did you love best about Skin Deep?

Ryan was an unexpected delight, and not at all the usual "hot guy" who appears in so many YA books. He was amazingly human, kind and genuine, and I loved his persistence in getting to know Jenna.

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

The tears kept running down my face as the author tapped into my own long ago memories of feeling ugly and rejected.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Iron Knight to be better than the print version?

If you're still panting for more Ash & Meagan, you'll be satisfied with how the story progresses. It continues with lots of twists & turns and it's a great adventure overall. I read all 4 books and listened to them as well. Both media go hand in hand in the sense that audio brings the story to life, while print confirms the nuances of whether or not things were actually said, or just thought. I liked the series enough that I listened to it more than once and thoroughly enjoyed it each time.
