Alex is lost and alone, with only his dog Stan for company. He doesn't expect kindness from anyone anymore, but sometimes hope can be found in the most unlikely places. He has a second chance at happiness, but there's a dark side to Alex and a reason that more than one person has called him crazy.

Where does One Careful Owner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book rates right up there among the top of the audiobooks I have previously listened too. This book really made me feel. I cried a lot.

What other book might you compare One Careful Owner to and why?

I haven't read/heard any other books that will compare with this book. I consider this book one of a kind. I don't think any book has made me feel as much as this book does. I was absolutely drained emotionally by the time this book ended.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think the most heart wrenching scene is when Stan dies. I was absolutely gutted. I thought for sure he was going to pull through.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I wanted to see if Alex and Dawn could overcome all of the obstacles life was throwing them. I felt very invested in their outcome.

Any additional comments?

A word of warning do not listen to this book while at work. There are parts of this book that are absolutely heart wrenching. I cried so much that I felt absolutely gutted.

You have to be a pretty amazing author when the reader feels all the highs and lows in a story and this book absolute did that to me.

Where does Marrying Emily rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right at the top. Anything that Susan Stoker writes is going to be on the top of my list.

Any of Susan book's at they go hand and hand.

What do you get when a good girl looking to go bad is left alone at Christmas with a jaded bad boy looking to be good? A perfect holiday. It's not a matter of what could go wrong when a kindergarten teacher who's tired of living vicariously through her porn collection is virtually stranded for the weekend with Mr. Sex-on-a-stick. It's more a question of what could go right. Sidney Capp is tired of denying her natural desires to be the quintessential good girl her parents expect her to be.

What did you love best about A Perfect Holiday?

I really liked the way that Riker 'got' Sidney and was infatuated with all her quirks.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Perfect Holiday?

Probably the memorable moment for me in this book was when Sidney finally stood up for herself to her parents and for Riker.

Professional hockey player Rob D'Amico is confused when he's chosen to take part in a reading program for inner-city students. While athletes are role models, he tends toward the gregarious and playful side, rather than a studious bent. Despite the lack of funding plaguing her inner-city district, every day, kindergarten teacher Alaina Rossa ensures her students learn something to prepare them for life. At first, she's unsure how a hockey player will help her achieve that goal.

There is just something magic and Kai/Wen duo performances. I always seen to get more out of a book when it's them narrating it. They just have a way of making it more 'realistic'

Would you consider the audio edition of Untouchable to be better than the print version?

I do like the audio version better, only because I think the narrator is able to pull you more into the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Untouchable?

I loved when Siri went into the Swinger's Party and was able to 'tap' in to what each person's sexual need/want was able then to help each one of them achieve that sexual need for them. Bringing more enjoyment and satisfaction to them.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite was when Ari discovered Siri was a virgin. That was totally unexpected. Siri is so sexual and brings so much pleasure to others.

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

It made me laugh in places. Poor Siri wants to have sex so badly with Ari and something always seems to be hampering her plans.

Any additional comments?

This is a great book. Great start to the Siri series.

Would you listen to Fogged Inn again? Why?

Yes. I think I rushed it a little bit as I couldn't stand the suspense and wanted to know what was going to happen and who was the killer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fogged Inn?

I liked the fact that you couldn't figure out until the very end who the killer was. All along it had you guessing who it was.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the way Nate and Val interact. She was a little mean at first but I think she felt her job was being threatened and didn't realize Nate was there just to help his friend. I also liked as the book progressed that Nate was second guessing the direction of his career. He started looking towards possibly doing something more meaningful.

I was devastated when Nate left and it looked like that was where the relationship was going to end. Glad it didn't.
