The man of dreams is too good for my sister. But I played by the rules. I stepped aside. I honored their sham of a marriage and watched a good man rot while my sister destroyed him from within. But then...my sister went missing. So I saved her husband's life. I loved him like he was my own. And I protected him from the truth. I had to do it. You would've done the same.

I found this book played with my mind a little.
Its amazing what some people will do to have their 10 minutes of fame. I found the way Naomi treats Opal and Jay disgusting. She treats Opal like her maid and something that is worthy of wiping her shoe on, as for Jay...Naomi & Jay have been married for years & yet he seems to have become a shell of a man so that his wife can make a name for herself.
I am however a little confused...first off...how can sisters treat each other that way...one minute there is mourning going on & then next they want to murder each other! Jay...he has me even more confused...he wants a divorce from Naomi, then Naomi is "murdered" and hes devastated, then he finds her again & hes miserable yet when shes really murdered he mourns her like a husband in love does & retraces his memories with her. Hes mad that Opal lied to him & yet he stays with her. I realize there is a child now but...I don't understand...& this book that Opal writes & Jay hates...wouldn't Opal have to get some information from Jay in order to write this book? & why is he so angry about a book...his wife displayed his whole life in an art gallery for everyone to see...how much worse could a book make it?

I received this book free for an honest review...

I'm confused. Happy Reading!

Samantha Hodges is ready to get as far away from crime reporting as possible - especially after what happened in Chicago. Writing for the paper in her pets-obsessed hometown will be easy. Except that she’s not really into animals. And her first interviewee turns up dead.

The characters, human and animal alike capture you almost immediately in this charming book about humans and their pets. Although there were some errors about greyhounds...I've been told that greyhounds do not get "rescued" they get "adopted" a friend of mine was actually insulted that the author used the wrong pretense (she owns 2 greyhounds).

After being fired and being ditched by her boyfriend Kyla moves back home but in order for her to get out of her parents home she needs a job & takes the only job available, Pet Reporter. Although it is below Kyla's status, she takes the job and is determined to become the best Pet Reporter she can be, unfortunately on her first assignment she finds a dead body and the adventure begins.

I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Happy Reading.

I truly enjoyed this book. Although once Annie started having more to do with Jenny, to me it became kind of obvious that the author was leaning towards Jenny being Annie's mom, so that part became a little predictable. I would've liked to have heard more about how & where the "adoptive" parents found these people and I honestly thought that Annie would've been much more bitter than she actually was.
In the end I'm glad that everyone finds a happy ending.

I also think that the author deserves a shout out for adding all the information at the end of the book about child abduction along with numbers to be able to contact someone if you know of anyone that might be in need of the information.

As a new reader/listener to this genre, I loved the storyline. Virtual Reality seems fascinating to me and I would think that if you are already a fan of the genre, you would love these books.
I actually started this series with book 6 as a free copy and the author was gracious enough to provide me with the beginning! I can't thank her enough! I decided to wait with reviewing #6 until I've read the others.
I know someone who will love these books & I will be passing this author's name along.
Now on to book 4!

The big news story in Chicago is the murder trial of Johnny Santoro, a dock worker whose girlfriend has been killed. Most Chicagoans are betting on a quick guilty verdict, but Ellie Foreman has doubts about his complicity - Santoro is strangely familiar to her. Checking back to the outtakes of a video project in progress while the murder took place, Ellie finds evidence that could save Santoro from a lifetime behind bars.

I understand this is the second book in a series. I have not read/listened to the first book but I found the book fairly easy to follow so I'm not sure if you need to read them in order or not, although I'm sure it would give a little more of a back story to the main characters.

I found the "mystery" easy to follow, a little predictable and unrealistic at times, but hey books are supposed to take you away from real life so sometimes unrealistic is a good thing.

I found the narration to be really good, although the accent was a little off for someone in Chicago.

I would like to read/listen to the first one to see if there was anything I missed, but I would continue to read/listen to the next one.

Thank you for the opportunity to listen to your book...it was enjoyable.

I absolutely loved this book and can not wait until the next installment!
Although the characters are all in their teens, this book is for adults & teens alike!
A witch (Jenny), a giant slayer (Jack), a shifter (Jessabelle) and a medium (Sean).
The story starts with Jenny who is devastated over the loss of her parents who have died in a car accident. Jenny is just about to graduate when her Aunt Hattie comes to help her make arrangements and to take Jenny back home with her to Blood Creek (Maple Bend). Jenny is then thrown into a mythical world that brings her to meet her new friends Jack, Jessabelle & Sean.
This story is about 4 teens that are coming of age and learning how their powers work.
The 4 teens are in a race against a powerful witch (Evelyn) to find the gate and to figure out how to make their way through said gate. Once they figure out how to get through the gate Jenny meets her grandmother who protects the gate on the other side. Where the battles continue.
I found the characters to be well thought out and intriguing as well as entertaining. Once I started listening to this book I didn't want to put it down!
Although there is no cliffhanger to speak of in this book, it definitely sets the story up for the next book.
I can't wait to continue on with the next book!
A must read!!

Again I am not usually into Historical/Regency novels but...WOW!
You really need to read the first book for this one to make much sense but believe me you won't disappointed by reading either book.
The book draws you in right away with the continuation of Adam & Daphne's volatile yet very...erotic relationship. This is not your typical love story, it starts out as revenge pure & simple and Adam figuring that it will be the ultimate revenge to send Daphne back home a fallen woman, but after their deal is up & he sends her home he realizes that he can't stop thinking about her, will he choose love over revenge? Of course he will!
I love that Daphne is a strong, independent woman, but even the most level headed female can & will fall for the bad boy.
I did a wtf moment when it came to Adam but...all turns out the way it should.

I would highly recommend!

PLEASE DO NOT JUDGE THIS BOOK BY MY REVIEW. I promised to leave a review for a free copy of this book.

Let me start by saying this...be sure you start with book 1. I only have book 4 and by this time (if you had read the other books) I'm sure you would have a good handle on all the characters and would be able to connect with them.

The story is good but...lets just say I really need to read the previous books (although I would like to read further to know more too). Once I get the chance to read/listen to the previous books...I promise to re-write this review.
