His name is Nate and I should hate him, but I don't. I'm not supposed to know his real name, even worse, I'm not supposed to care. He is nothing to me but means to an end. The plan is simple: break free, collect the pieces of my broken soul, kill the bastards and run away.

Where does King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

On a scale of 1-10, I would rate it a 9

Which scene was your favorite?

Preppy is very funny and there were many times I caught myself laughing out loud. In the car

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

Yes, I found myself itching to get back in the car and start my commute

Any additional comments?

There is a lot of violence in this book, so it's not for everyone. Again, if you can get past it, it's a great book. The narrators were very good

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing 19-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper. A face that makes girls weep - check. Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) - check. Enough confidence to shift the earth's gravitational pull - double check. Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits. Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear.
