Horrible narration. I ended up skipping chapters just to get this book over with. Will be returning for something else. The story was lackluster as well. Super disappointed!

Narrator was horrible and there was really nothing to this story. I think they are trying to get you to want to follow the further story but it didn't even capture my interest. Requesting refund ASAP.

But that didn't dull the pain of Amanda's rejection - until a chance encounter throws them together. A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn't found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did.

Would you try another book from Sarah Castille and/or Lucy Rivers?

Probably not. Story lacked depth, romance lacked depth, I was tempted to skip chapters just to get it over with.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sarah Castille again?

Not likely. One and done. I am the type of reader/listener that, you either wowed me and I purchased more or you didn't and I won't waste my time again.

What aspect of Lucy Rivers’s performance would you have changed?

She was actually not that bad.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

While I didn't love this book, I didn't hate it completely. More like disappointed and was expecting way more.

Any additional comments?

Nothing about the characters made me fall in love with them or want them to work out. The background story kept getting in the way of their story and would normally be ok but the background story sucked too.

What disappointed you about Sugar Springs?

The story, the characters, the lack of excitement, romance, poor dialogue...I could go on and on.

What was most disappointing about Kim Law’s story?

The characters were immature and there really wasn't a story to the..well story.

What does Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Natalie Ross did a great job but even she couldn't breath life into this story.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sugar Springs?

I wouldn't necessarily cut them, I probably would add to them and edit edit edit...

Where does The Gamble rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the top listens I've had the pleasure to listen to.

What did you like best about this story?

It was well rounded, great storyline, hilarious characters, great setting and overall awesome!

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

I don't think so but I loved her. She did a good job in making each character have their own voice

Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man — Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

What would have made Beautifully Damaged better?

The author should have spent more time building their relationship up. The story didn't have a good indication as to why the girl would fall so hard for this guy in a matter of brief meetings, to the point of almost worship. There wasn't enough depth in the story. Also, the girl in the story was sooooo annoying! Get a backbone! Have some self respect!

What was most disappointing about L. A. Fiore’s story?

I literally rolled my eyes about every half hour at how weak and pathetic the girl was in different situations.

What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

She did a great job in every aspect.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Beautifully Damaged?

The scenes were Trace told her to leave, to get out and they were over and Ember would follow him everywhere.

Any additional comments?

This story has great potential with the right 'tweeking' here and there. Was very disappointed to see such a good story get ruined the way it was.

Sure

What was most disappointing about Sharon Hamilton’s story?

She should have spent more time developing the main characters and their relationship. There was nothing there to convince the listener why they would fall so hard so fast. The girl came off desperate and extremely weak.

What does J. D. Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did a pretty good job.

Was Accidental SEAL worth the listening time?

No, I couldn't wait for it to end. Pretty boring.

It’s not my fault I get a lot of attention. I make a lot of money and I have a really big...ego. Women love me almost as much as I love them. Except the only one who has ever made me want more. She’s independently wealthy and hates my guts. There’s nothing I can offer a woman like her. Fancy dinners and diamonds won’t impress this one. Until I find out there’s one thing she wants that I can give her. A baby.

No, lets just say, if you had asked me what this story was about the day after listening to it, I would have drawn a blank. The ending was the worst part. It wasn't a bad story just not memorable and a little weak.

What made the experience of listening to The Billionaire's Obsession: The Complete Collection the most enjoyable?

It was a well rounded out story. The perfect amount of angst, love scenes, storyline etc.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Simon. The author did a good job of making him needy but strong, afflicted by his past yet willing to overcome it etc

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Powers – was your favorite?

All of them actually

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

The scene after the heroine was attacked was pretty sweet

Marco Donati is rich, ruthless - and more often than not - indiscriminate. Interested only in satisfying his sexual needs casually and frequently, he has no intention of changing a thing about his life. Natalie Lambert is alone, broke, and new to the city when a chance encounter leaves her under the power and control of Marco Donati. As the story unfolds, tensions mount and trust is tested between two people who can't manage to stay away from each other.

What did you like best about Marco's Redemption? What did you like least?

it was an overall good story, paced well with just enough story line to keep you interested. Its a quick easy listen. What I liked the least was, the ending. It felt rushed. It seemed like it was still in the middle of the storyline when the author jumped it 8 months in the future when he out of the blue proposes then it jumps 7 years in the future. Ending needs to be rounded out a bit.

Would you recommend Marco's Redemption to your friends? Why or why not?

Sure

Which scene was your favorite?

Nothing really sticks out

Do you think Marco's Redemption needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, not at all. The ending of the book would have to be completely re-written.
