Loved it!! Hope to see this emerge as a full blown series. This is old school Gerri Hill with perfect pacing, involved plot, and totally character driven. Narration was perfect too.

Australian crime reporter Maddie Grey is out of her depth in New York, miserable, and secretly drawn to her powerful, twice-married media mogul boss, Elena Bartell, who eats failing newspapers for breakfast. As work takes them to Australia, Maddie is goaded into a brief, seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss - where they have to tell the complete truth to each other. It backfires catastrophically.

And that’s saying a lot! Start at the beginning with Kiss the Girl, and settle into the stories of four friends finding love and lives in Manhattan. Hunter is my favorite, so her story ranks highest with me. You will laugh and sigh and wish these gals were on your midnight chocolate speed dial.

Other half horrid. Why anyone would feel the need to supplement Felicity Munroe’s perfect narration is baffling. The voice of Kathryn is all wrong. I stuck it out be I knew I had felicity to look forward to. Story and characters are engaging enough keep listening, but print is likely the better choice for this one!

Coming out is easier when you've got someone by your side. At least that's how the hyper-private Quinn Kincaid sees it. When her publicist suggests a good old-fashioned sham of a Hollywood relationship, Quinn reluctantly agrees. And that's how the star of Jordan's Appeal, TV's highest rated legal drama, ends up with a fake girlfriend - the very real, very sexy, and very gay soap star Lacey Matthews.

First of all, I was dubious. I was wrong.

Narration was the best I have heard in a while. Melissa Moran made the characters exactly who they should be with not one misstep.

But Elle Spencer took a tired and silly premise and turned out romantic comedy gold! From the first page, the dialog is so real and conversational that I felt like I was eavesdropping. The characters truly evolve into who they need to be for the relationship to work over the entire course of the novel, which spans a year. Every time I thought “here comes the plot cliche”, she went a different direction. It’s so well done. I will likely listen to it again in a couple weeks. It’s that good.

A prominent figure amongst New York City's fashion elite, Elena Vega is a successful businesswoman and single mother to an adorable three-year-old son, Lucas. Her love life, however, is lacking, as those closest to her keep pointing out. At the persistent urging of her closest friend, Elena reluctantly agrees to a string of blind dates if she can find a suitable babysitter for Lucas. Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University. Elena is intrigued by Allison's ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman's instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job. After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.

Somehow this story just can’t rise above juvenile despite well written relationship with the lead’s toddler. Both characters are annoyingly cliche. Some seriously bright spots get overshadowed by lines like “you may touch me any time, dear. You are quite the gentlewoman.” I just kept thinking, who talks like this? The kid saves the whole thing. He’s written perfectly and is pretty adorable. Overall it’s flawed but okay.

I’m so disappointed. Usually this author is a decent, not stellar, read. This one is flat as a pancake. Cardboard cliche characters who have to ponder about femme and butch-ness. There is nothing that really sparks interest, no real story. Just a series of excuses to throw in sex scenes everywhere. Will be returning this one. I got a little over half through and gave up.

Army National Guard Colonel Sawyer Kincaid has served her time dueling with death in the deserts of Africa. Now that she's home, the only sand she wants to see is on the beach in South Florida. Too bad Tropical Storm Leo, swiftly gaining strength out over the Atlantic, is about to draw her in to another life or death war, this time on home soil. Dr. Dara Sims has too many critical patients in the intensive care units at Miami Memorial to consider evacuation, no matter how determined the battle-hardened colonel is to make her. As far as Dara is concerned, evacuate is just another word for abandon. When a state of emergency becomes a state of siege waged by Leo, all she can do is hope the rising waters relent before she loses everyone, herself included.

I like when Rad writes adventure, and this one falls into that category. It’s all about anticipation of landfall alongside the romance. And it doesn’t use the trope of being trapped at death’s door and clinging to each other to feel alive. That was such a refreshing surprise. The setting provides the drama and the story, and the romance is more organic and normal. I truly enjoyed this one.

What would you change about your past if you had the chance? What if you didn't have a choice? Stevie Geller doesn't do conflict. She likes her job as a successful novelist and playwright because it allows her to peacefully ensconce herself in her New York City loft, avoid human interactions, and leave personal drama for the page and stage. When her agent asks her to return to her hometown of Darlington, Illinois, to accept an award, she agrees only because he promises the process will be quick and easy.

I couldn’t get through it. The material may have been decent, but the breathy babydoll voice of every feminine character set my teeth on edge. I have no idea why the narrator did that. The other voices were done fine, but the romantic interest sounds like an airheaded cupie doll. Money back please.

I loved the mavis moments in this one, and Peabody and mcnab are coming into their own here. But the resolution of the tension between Eve and Roarke is disappointing. I don’t understand (SPOILER) why a victim of rape needs to be pseudo-raped by her loving husband. I have to pretend that interchange did not happen, or I lose all respect for Roarke. This is my favorite guilty pleasure series of all time, so I just skip that part and enjoy the rest!
