During the spring and summer months, Melody Carrick lives, eats, and sleeps baseball. As a Baltimore Blue Birds season ticket holder, she attends every home game to enjoy the action. When a foul ball hits her in the face and knocks her out during the season opener, the last thing she expects is for the handsome rookie who caused the mess to visit her in the hospital. Injuring a fan during his first game in the majors is rookie Carson Lawrence's worst nightmare. Knowing he won't be able to clear his conscience until he's assured she's not seriously hurt, he visits the woman in the hospital.

Keep up the writing Trish Ann! I think this may be one of your first books, or at least first audiobook because I couldn’t find any others, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of unforeseen twists and turns and tender moments. Loved it!

Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again. Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can't stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she's just a city girl - a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace.

After reading previous book reviews I looked forward to listening to this book, but the storyline is a bit ridiculous at times and you can tell the two narrators didn't prepare very well because they're interpretations of the characters seemed so different. One minute the female character is a impulsive ditz and the next she's strong and independent. Not my cup of tea and probably won't waste my time on anymore books in this series.

After appearing on The Apprentice years ago and receiving a flood of letters from young women asking for guidance, I realized the need for more female leaders to speak out publicly in order to change the way society thinks and talks about "women who work". So I created a forum to do just that. This book evolves the conversation that started on IvankaTrump.com, where so many incredible women (and men!) have shared their experiences, advice, ambitions, and passions.

While this was a very well written book with some advice here and there that anybody could pull from, this book is geared more toward the high powered executive woman. This book doesn't really speak to the clerk, the school teacher, or any other blue collar women. In the same token I understand Ms. Trump has lived a privileged life, not without its own struggles, but out of touch with the everyday women that make up a majority of the work force. I respect her as a working mother, but then again realize she has many resources available to her that most women do not. While helpful to some, this book just wasn't for me. Well written, thought out and organized for the executive female leaders in executive positions.
