Now, headstrong Zinnia makes a living using her psychic abilities - a highly prized skill that attracts the attention of another planetary outcast, Nick Chastain. The rough-edged casino owner craves what he doesn't have-respectability - and he enlists Zinnia to help find his father's journal and dig up answers to his own mysterious past.

I read this book when I was younger, and I fell in love with the world building. I really liked the concept of the carnivorous maze. I would have like to have more adventure from that part of the story. Granted the main character is a bit of a stickler but it is still fun. I look forward to the next few books, the third one has always been my favorite. Narrator does a good job, not sure why there is so much negative review for her.

After a difficult childhood and a turbulent stint in the military, Declan Burke finally got his act together. Now he’s a battle-hardened professional bodyguard who takes his job at McKay-Taggart seriously and his playtime - and his playmates - just as seriously. One thing he never does, however, is mix business with pleasure. But when the mysterious, gorgeous Suzanne D’Angelo needs his protection from a stalker, his desire for her burns out of control, tempting him to break all the rules…even as he’s drawn into a dark, dangerous world he didn’t know existed.

Another sexy shorter story. I was a little worried when they brought the torture chamber out that this was going to be more of a bdsm story, but thankfully it is not, just a bit of sexy play. I like Larissa Ione’s shorter stories, but I’m looking forward to a longer series that has a more in depth story line like the Demonica or the Horseman. I would even be interested in more of her Moonbound Clan series. Narrator is sexy.

Amaryllis Lark is one of the best psychic detectives on St. Helen's, the Earth colony recently cut off from the mother planet, yet not so very different from home. Lucas Trent, the rugged head of Lodestar Exploration, isn't keen on the prim type - and from her crisp business suit to her cool evaluation of his request to bust a corporate thief, beautiful Amaryllis is excruciatingly proper. But when a bold hunch heats up into a twisting murder investigation, by-the-book Amaryllis must let her guard down and break some rules.

It took me a little while to start this book, while I love the series, the last book was not my favorite. Thankfully this book is better and I’m in love with Jacky again. She has some of the cleverest ways of getting out of trouble. It is just fun to watch. I look forward to the next book. Narrator is awesome as usual, I just learned she died which saddens me because she is so colorful and lively.

I bought this book a while ago but put off reading it because I couldn’t remember what happened in the first book. I thought I would relisten to that again, but I didn’t really want to. Even my review for the book didn’t help my memory of the first book. I went ahead and read this book anyway and enjoyed it although it is not my favorite book by Sherrilyn Kenyon. The real problem I had with the story is sometimes it switched to a memory and I didn’t realize it was a memory and was a bit confused what was going on. This sometimes would happen when other characters had the limelight and again I was a bit confused, but then again maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention. Overall, I enjoy the narrator.

A little on the whiny side about America education, but it was interesting once they started talking about history and it was good that the father decided to do something concerning his own son’s education. The production itself was well produced.

I’m a huge fan of Andy Carpenter, and if David Rosenfelt keeps writing his story I will be reading them. I enjoyed this book immensely and look forward to more in the future. I will be the first to admit the mystery is not the most intriguing story line but there is something about David Rosenfelt’s books that give you a feel good feeling. I love all the characters and feel like I got to see the gang again while listening. Grover Gardner is an excellent narrator, and to me he is Andy Carpenter.

I downloaded this because it was free, I had no idea what it was about when I started to listen to it. I’m not much of a sports fan, but this was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the short story about John Scott and his hockey career. I did feel like he ended up with the short end of the stick afterwards, but it was wonderful to hear his story. I look forward to more stories about other athletes.

It’s always hard to make the crowd laugh - especially when joking about war, PTSD, and mental health. Strong Ending follows three military veterans as they attempt to turn their most painful stories into laughs by participating in a stand-up comedy boot camp. After joining the military, deploying to combat zones, and coming home fundamentally changed, Michael Garvey, Isaura Ramirez, and Patrick Harth challenge themselves to share their stories on stage and perform original stand up-comedy about their experiences for a packed house.

Not as funny as I would have thought, although there are a few parts where I laughed pretty good. As a veteran myself, it is uplifting to see other veterans finding a way to deal with the stress and trauma of PTSD. Makes me want to suggest this to my fellow veterans.

Good dramatization of the X files, it made me miss watching them. This audio is split up into episodes, which also is a reminder of the TV series. If you’re a fan of the show, I recommend giving this audio a go. I used to watch every X files episode there was when they first came out. I was totally in love with Mulder. Yes, I was a nerd. Some people didn’t like the dramatization, but I thought they were great.
