Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases - a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with as well as way less experience in the dating department than the average 30-year-old. It doesn't help that she has Asperger's and that French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. She decides that she needs lots of practice - with a professional - which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.

I loved this book. I have close family members that live with this. They are both beautiful people and very smart. So this book was beautiful to me on that alone. The writing was above and beyond what I was expecting going into the book. I just expected good writing and storyline. I didn't expect to be pulled into the story to the point of not wanting to stop listening. It made me laugh, cry, and feel comfort in life. I hope the artist writes another book for us to enjoy.

If I could say anything to the artist it would be, thank you for sharing your talent with us and know we are very lucky to have been able to experience this through your eyes.

Lt. Commander Joshua Manson's focus on his career has taken him to many places, just not the one he has always dreamed of going: space. His sometimes controversial methods during missions have given him the reputation of being a soldier who doesn't always play by the rules. A challenging mission leaves Josh questioning if he'll have a career at all, so he is surprised when he is offered the chance to command a mission in space to investigate an unknown object. The more he learns, the more determined he is to lead it.

I enjoyed the story. The comic relief was in just the right places. There was a bit of a build up but once the story was set and the world was built it was very good. I do not want to spoil the story for you so I will just say that it is an awesome book.

I started reading Mrs. Hamilton's work back in 2002-ish and I have fallen in love with the story line, people, world building and writing style. This book is like all of the others, I could not put it down but I did not want to finish it either. I enjoyed every word.

happy reading.

I am in love with Mrs. Howard. I am in love with the story. I am in love with the narrator. I just love this book. It is nice to have books with action, romance, and I don't have to spend 3/4 of the book bored waiting to see what happens. I also agree only a moron would jump out of a perfectly good plain and call it fun.

I liked the story it was ok. I had the hardest time enjoying it though because I could not get lost in the book. The reader, to me, felt almost as bad as one of the computer voices. I am very glad I did not waste a credit on this book.
I hope others are able to enjoy the book but as for me I will not get another book narrated by this reader. Must remember to check out her name. I will also say I hate giving a negative review on anything I feel there is always something positive to say but today I am at a loss of words.

They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.

Robyn pulls you into the whole town so quickly that by chapter 4 or 5 you're reading about friends.

Joel and Jethro. Roommates. Total hunks. Inseparable friends. Hot as hell. Meet my fantasy boyfriends. Aren't they just the sexiest, cutest thing? I know, right? They totally are. They are hot, too hot for a quiet - and obsessed with them - girl working in a bookshop. That'd be me, by the way. There's also the tiny problem of Joel wanting another girl. And as for Jethro, well...he doesn't do girls. Or maybe he doesn't do relationships.

Dr. Devlin Dane has had his sights set on my panties for months. But I've done a stellar job of fending him off. As Mercy Medical's most eligible bachelor, he has no problem in the panty-dropping department. He's tall, dark, and inked all over. I get the appeal; I'm not dead. I'm not stupid either. He's a walking heartbreak waiting to happen. But when Reese Dane comes crashing into my life - literally- the game suddenly changes. The two have an unstoppable pull like centrifugal force.
