You can’t outrun your past. If you try, it will chase after you in a silver DeLorean. The last thing Anika Singh wants is to go home to Ohio, but when her mother is diagnosed with cancer, what choice does she really have? Because all Marcine, Ohio, has for Anika is bad memories - being an outcast, and betrayal. Jenny’s betrayal. Anika’s high school sweetheart turned ex-wife. Anika hopes she won’t run into Jenny...or maybe she hopes she will run into her. It’s hard to say. Then there’s Amy, a dark-haired beauty Anika meets on the flight to Cleveland.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain: A Lesbian Romance: Rosemont Duology, Book 2 to anyone lesbian or not! Eliza Andrews hit a home run.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anika, her character was strong but at the same time caring.

Have you listened to any of Angela Rysk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Angela Rysk is one of my favorite readers. She reads the Imp series. She adds flavor to the books she reads.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Can't say without giving to much away. I will say there were several moving moments.

Any additional comments?

To many books are the same as the one before. This one was not cookie cutter.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend the book in e-book format. Ms. Goodyear did not do the book justice. She read it as if the characters were teenagers. She read the book as if she was in a race. There was no passion read into the love scenes. If I had not read the e-book before I purchased the audible book, I would have hated it.

What did you like best about this story?

Ms. O'Brien made you feel for both women in the story. I like the true conflict. It made since.

Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Goodyear’s performances?

No ... never.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The very end .... to say more would be a spoiler

If you could sum up Nobody's Perfect in three words, what would they be?

Fun ... Sexy read.

What other book might you compare Nobody's Perfect to and why?

The "full figured" angle made it a "real" read.

Have you listened to any of Joy Nash’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Pulled me in completely to the setting and characters of the novel. Did good male voice but nailed the female voice! Hope she "reads" more books soon.

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

Made me LOL!

The Valkyrie Kara stood alone against the Ragnarok horde on Earth to ensure that the Asgard race and Valhalla could escape. For 5,000 years she has fought and evaded the Ragnarok race on Earth, just waiting for her people to return. A human woman, Kate, joins her fight, showing as much conviction and valor as any Valkyrie. Their friendship quickly becomes something more as they hold the line on Earth in battle, to herald the return of the Asgard.

What made the experience of listening to Return of the Asgard the most enjoyable?

A great first book from the Valkyrie series by Erik Schubach

What was one of the most memorable moments of Return of the Asgard?

The powerful ending.

Which scene was your favorite?

To many to choose one.

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

Made me laugh .... a lot

Any additional comments?

I am impressed by the wealth of detail Mr. Schubach incorporates into his Valkyrie stories. Mr. Schubach writes the way every day man/women thinks. It's not all perfect grammar or poetry - it’s just hard facts with a comic twist. The book has action - history - and life lessons all rolled up in a good story. I would say it is well worth the credit! I hope his other books in this series become available to Audible Books!!!!

"You'd think a midnight prowler would have sense enough to get out after being discovered by a group of middle-aged women armed with flower vases. Or at least stop what he was doing. Not this one. Despite our menacing appearance, he kept opening cabinet doors and drawers. Our intruder wore what looked like a black Ninja outfit. It did not flatter. He was a bit chunky and not much taller than me. Nor did he move very fast as Gaynelle and I bore down on him like a freight train."

Awful. Not a romance. More a story of rape and a woman I hope only exist in the authors silly mind.
