There's only one bright spot Jasmine Hayes can see when she's suckered into helping plan her high school reunion. At least she'll be able to reconnect with old friends Chase Randolph and Alex Landry. There's nothing she regrets more than losing touch with those two handsome guys.

Would you listen to Coming Full Circle again? Why?

Absolutely - its already on my reading bucket list.

What other book might you compare Coming Full Circle to and why?

Not sure - I love romantic comedy, the mix of Romance, Sex and humour in this book is great - the humour is based on characters rather than situation.

What about Shannon Gunn’s performance did you like?

Shannon did a great job. I will read other books performed by her.

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

Pleasantly surprised by some of the characters. Yes - some parts had me laughing our loud.

Any additional comments?

I wish the book was longer - it would be nice to know how the menage continues to play out.

Now M is dodging extraterrestrial paparazzi while trying to keep the truth from her adoptive aunt and uncle and everyone at school.

What did you like best about Starcrossed? What did you like least?

This book would be appreciated by young teens - for me t was very boring.

Has Starcrossed turned you off from other books in this genre?

No - but if I new it was for teens I would not have bought it.

Do you think Starcrossed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

for teens - yes, for me - it would be nice to know what happens after they "Grow Up".

Tory King always believed in fairy tales. But a hard life full of tragedy, struggle and debt made that belief one that was hard to maintain. However, when a well-spoken, well dressed and handsome man moved in next door to her she was more than a little intrigued. Soon she was to discover that this man was billionaire Clint Addams. But why would a billionaire suddenly be living in this relatively poor part of town? And why does he seem so interested in her?

Money or love? Which would you choose? You probably just answered the question in your head, thinking it's an easy decision. For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot. I needed to go far away to think it through. As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation. Then, he left. I thought I'd never see him again. But fate had other plans. Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world-famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn't plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn't count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she'd ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls - especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn't end well.

Rhea Jackson had always enjoyed working as personal assistant to billionaire Barrett Mahoney, but it was always business rather than pleasure with a man who came across as being very, very serious. All this changed when Barrett found himself without a date for a business function and with no one else to turn to, he asked Rhea if she would be his "plus one" for the night.

When you're a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating - and that suits me just fine. In fact it's necessary when I'm breaking down a witness on the stand.
