Some girls say no. Some boys don't listen. When Grace meets Ian, she's afraid. Afraid he'll reject her like the rest of the school, like her own family. After she accuses Zac, the town golden boy, of rape, everyone turns against her. Ian wouldn't be the first to call her a slut and a liar. Except Ian doesn't reject her. He's the one person who looks past the taunts and the names and the tough-girl act to see the real Grace. He's the one who gives her the courage to fight back. He's also Zac's best friend.

This book reminds me of an older movie, She Fought Alone. But it's more relevant because it adds the element of social media, which didn't exist at the time of that movie. I got angry with everyone, including Ian, throughout this book. The thing about young men like Zach is that people around them often know they are monsters and they choose to ignore it. Grace was the strongest, most beautiful character I've ever had the pleasure of being acquainted with. This books shows the ugly truth that is rape culture. It's important that we start teaching young men and women that not only is rape not ok but the mob mentality of bullying other people is just as damaging as the sexual assault.

Fastballs. Fast cars. Fast women. They are how I've learned to cope. But then life throws me a curveball. I may never play the game I love again. Then I meet her. She represents everything I've lost - in the best and worst of ways. She may be the only one who can get me back in the game. And I'm not just talking about baseball.

I didn't like splitting up the narration into part 1 and part 2. It didn't allow us to hear about Brady's healing from his own perspective, only through the eyes of Riley.

Alexandra Inglis is a respected family doctor, trusted by her patients to keep their most intimate secrets. And if sometimes the boundaries between duty and desire blur...well, she's only human.

Great book and narrator. It literally kept me guessing until the end. I couldn't figure out who was lying at first. I knew Jonathan had not committed suicide and questioned if it were David at some point before the ending. David and Alex were both sociopaths. Alex was a lying manipulator. She took advantage of a young boy and because of her he ended up dead. That upset me almost as if it had really happened.

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. It seemed like a good idea at the time: a handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules, though - lots of them actually. I had to follow the script and avoid dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men last year, it wouldn't be hard to live up to my end of the bargain...or so I thought.

I found myself getting bored with this book. I'm not a prude and don't mind some dirty scenes but I felt like there was too much of it in this case. The book just didn't keep my attention and I found myself rushing for it to be over. The author also uses the same narrators for nearly all her books.

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart. I had a plan. Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right? Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn't exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door. That's when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn't a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset.

I didn't know what to expect with a female narrator doing both male and female points of view. Usually books with one narrator only give one point of view or are written in 3rd person perspective. This narrator easily flowed between both characters.

I got annoyed with Mack at times being impulsive and not thinking things through but she was strong and determined. It was a good listen.

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors. Her books always keep me guessing and this one was no different. I won't spoil it for those who haven't listened but it was worth the credit. the narrator was also very good. I enjoyed him.

I'm going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. Will we lose it all when I reveal what's beneath this mask?
