The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was - until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

I think i forgot I had a family while listening to this one. Wow. Angelica Lee nailed it. Her narration of Ava was incredible but her accent for Caleb was spot on. Ava was funny witty and vulnerable. Caleb was hard - but softened by her. And the steamy hotness.....😲. This book is one I would listen to again. A definite top on my list of best reads this year.

Ian Chase broke my heart at 17, and I’ve spent the last 18 years hating him for it. He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle - which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils. I’ve always loved to loathe him. I never planned to need him.

Jamie McGuire does it again. This book was a little darker than some I have read by her but SO GOOD. The ending was everything - I had a feeling and when the end all came out I literally said out loud - “I KNEW IT”. Karissa Vacker was amazing but Darrell Dennis was how I would have expected Elliott. Do yourself a favor and read this one!

The story was just ok for me. I feel like it could have had better twists and turns. It could have kept you on the edge of your seat better but for what it was it was ok. Catherine Steadmans narration on the other hand was SPOT ON.

I do what I want and who I want. I don't follow anyone's rules-even my own. I knew I shouldn't touch her, but it didn't stop me. Didn't stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third. My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn't. But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I'm nowhere near ready to quit her yet. I'll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness. Hopefully it doesn't kill us both.

Ok - I am a HUGE Meghan March fan - and this book does not disappoint. I feel like I need to respond to some of the not so great reviews. We know this book is a trilogy and she loves to leave you wanting more. As hard as it is for me - I wait for all 3 to be released before I even start listening - this way I won’t be disappointed when it leaves you hanging. Yes - her trilogy books tend to be shorter than her full length books but they tell an amazing story full of twists and turns, solid characters and serious hotness!! I did have to get used to Grace Grant’s narration since I was used to previous narration of her books. But I did grow to enjoy her voice through the Mount Trilogy! Book 1 is basically Temperance’s story and sets up the whole series. Definitely worth your credit - as are the next 2 - and all her books for that matter!! Ms March - you out did yourself 🙌👏

Unthinkable. Unbelievable. Inconceivable. I don’t recognize what my life has become. I can’t tell where the lies end and the truth begins anymore. He came into my world and urged me out of my safe little corner. All my dreams are coming true except the one thing I want most - my own happy ending. But I’ll fight for it. For now. For always.

I loved this series! Meghan March knows how to push you to the limit and makes you feel all the feels. I love how she tied all of her NOLA characters together in this book and OH Harriet - you gotta love her. I loved the ending and how she wrapped everything together. Kane and Temperance’s story was great. I think that Joe Arden and Grace Grant did a great job.

There once was a boy, and I loved him. Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown. The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn't look away.

I liked this story - but after reading the first book this one was only ok for me. High and Lo we’re destined to be together, if only Logan could love himself. They never stopped loving each other through all the sadness that was thrown their way. Emily Woo Zeller was a little too dramatic for me in her narration and wasn’t my favorite and Graham Halstead did an OK job.

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. If I'd known then what I do now, would I have kept on walking? Manning was older, darker, experienced--and I'd trusted him when he said the story would only ever be about us. I'd held those words close and challenged fate, but I had lost. A part of me is still that sixteen-year-old girl squinting up at Manning, but no matter how far I fall or high I soar, I'll always be a bird without her bear and nothing without him.

What did you love best about Move the Stars?

AHHH...everything!! I had to listen to this book twice, because I just couldn't shake it. I had to hear more from Lake and Manning. After hearing the Q&A from Jessica Hawkins at the end, I wanted to listen deeper to the story line, to really pay attention to the growth of the characters, the first time I just wanted to see what happened and rushed through it, the second time, I really listened. It is just fantastic.

Which character – as performed by Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt – was your favorite?

Both - they both do such an amazing job - it is hard to listen to anyone else!

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

This is probably one of my favorites. It makes you mad, it makes you happy, it tugs at your heart and makes you feel the feels! This is a MUST read, as well as the first 2 books in the series. I can't wait for the conclusion - because I do feel like there are some loose ends, like what REALLY happened to get Manning arrested, and who was behind that. I can't wait for book 4!

I used to believe there were lines in life you don't cross. Don't lie. Don't cheat. Don't steal. Until I learned people don't always practice what they preach. I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything. Then I got the call no one wants, and I'm back in New Orleans. What I don't expect is for her to be here, too. Another line you don't cross? Don't touch your best friend's little sister. She's always been off-limits. Too bad I don't follow the rules anymore.
