The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I love this series and tell everyone who asks "what should I read (or listen to) next?" that this is the best series and is best enjoyed on audiobook. There are currently 33 titles in this series (this is number 33) and I've listened to, and loved, every one of them!

This book is about a rundown home that once was a beautiful mansion. Maggie talks Walt into buying it so they can restore it to its former glory. Along the way, they uncover many unusual things and attempt to right wrongs done in the past. As per usual with this series, there are lots of one-liners, witty dialogue, and references to movies and music of the past.

I loved this book but I really hated for it to end. Now that I'm all caught up on the series, it will be a long wait for the next book but will be well worth it for sure.

With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

Let me start by saying that I don't read non-fiction. I find it boring and, honestly, pure torture to finish. Becoming by Michelle Obama is most definitely NOT one of those books. I'm not sure if I heard her reading an excerpt from the book on TV or if I heard about the book and then listened to the sample on Audible. However I came to hear that excerpt, I'm so glad that I did and used a credit to get this book.

It's engrossing, well written, and well narrated. There were so many things about Mrs. Obama's life that could have left her bitter and cynical but she overcame those things to become a strong woman with a strong voice. If she were ever to run for office, I would definitely vote for her and have the confidence that she could do whatever she set out to do and whatever was best for her constituents.

Please get this audiobook. You will enjoy it and it will leave you with many ideas of how you can be a better person. It will help give women the confidence needed to achieve their dreams.

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. Wow, just when I think there's nothing the author could write that would surprise me, along comes this book. There are so many players after the mysterious box, you'll need a notepad to keep track of who is after it, who has it, and who was killed for it. Does anyone know what is in the box? I'm not telling; you'll just have to get the book to find out.

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I'm terrified of spiders so I really don't like this cover. If I wasn't so fond of the series I might have skipped this one since I would have assumed that it was about real spiders. I'm so glad I didn't. While spiders are mentioned that is NOT what the book is about. Black Widows are also women that kill men which of course I knew. There wasn't anything in this book that caused me to shiver in terror. But, as usual, there were lots of hijinks and some funny moments. I can't wait for the next book!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. This book touches on some very difficult issues that sadly are all too common today. I listened to this book in one sitting. I kept thinking "I'll just finish this chapter" but when I got to the end of that chapter I wanted to know what happened next. That's been true with every book in this series LOL. Needless to say, it's been the cause of many sleepless (but oh so enjoyable) nights.

My heart completely melts when I look into the eyes of our baby. This is the beginning of my happily ever after, but it will be a fight because there are those who seek to destroy it. It seems my life is fated to reflect the sensual play I crave. To enjoy the pleasure - I must face the pain.

This book starts with the birth of Brie and Sir's baby. It ends with a surprise that leaves you hanging to find out what happens next. I love this series. This book was narrated by Pippa Jayne (instead of men narrating the different POVs of some of the male characters). Personally, I prefer the books that were narrated by Pippa Jayne since the characters' voices are consistent making it much easier to follow the story.

I found this book a little boring. Yes, it's Sir's perspective on recent events but hearing the same story over and over again (with slight deviations) is pretty old at this point. However, there were a few twists toward the end that made it worthwhile.

This book was about Todd Wallace (Falon). As with the other books of the dom's POVs, this recaps some of the history between him and Brie, then covers the time of Thane's accident until shortly after his death. We also get more insight into the boy he killed in the car accident and the aftermath through Trevor's (the boy in the accident) parents' eyes. The narrator didn't do a great job with this book. He kept forgetting which voice he used for the characters which made it a little hard to follow the conversations.
