I was perfectly content with my life. My career was booming. I traveled. I did as much charity work as I possibly could for the homeless, and I was perfectly happy with the choices I'd made. At least...I was - until my sister, Dani, came up missing. As an international correspondent, she traveled to war-torn countries, and she'd stepped a little too far over the line. With my sibling kidnapped and running out of time, I had no option except to approach Marcus Colter for help.

What made the experience of listening to Billionaire Unknown the most enjoyable?

Elizabeth Powers is a super Reader. She can express the meanings of the printed word better than anyone I have listened to & I listen to a lot of audio books. She made it terrific to listen to.

What other book might you compare Billionaire Unknown to and why?

I don't believe you can compare this book with any other simply because it was unique. I haven't read or listened to any book close to this one. Oh, there are other books that are great on their own but this one was special to me.

Which scene was your favorite?

Where Harper finally tells Blake the real reason she kept running away from him. That scene was so poignant as to make me proud of her for having the courage to admit her love for him & risk it all to tell him the truth.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Greatest Love of All Time.

Any additional comments?

Just a beautifully written book. I highly recommend this book as it had the right amount of sex & a terrific love for a lifetime. Even though it is fiction, it is totally believable that this could actually happen although 12 years lost because of a misunderstanding is an awfully long time.

What made the experience of listening to Untouchable the most enjoyable?

Anastasia watley really made the story interesting. She is an excellent narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

London was tmy favorite character. Even though she waffled back & forth about being a sub, she was a very caring person.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene in the club where the H is being a dom to London. That was extremely hot.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this to anyone who is into BDSM. The Dom here is very good & the fact that the club had such great rules concerning the sub. Everything had to be consensual.

No, but I loved her on this book.

I laughed a lot and there were some very sweet moments.

Would you listen to Last Breath again? Why?

I can listen to this over & over, it is that good. Daniel & Reagan were made for each other following the trauma that Reagan went through Daniel helped heal her & eventually they both loved one another.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Reagan, because she was so brave through everything she went through,

What does Iggy Toma and Kasha Kensington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The expressions of the characters, They brig the characters to life.

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

It made me laugh many times when Daniel would tease her to get a rise out of her & keep her from feeling down. I felt bad for what Reagan went through but she was a fighter not a loser.

Any additional comments?

It was a great listen & well worth a credit.
