By now you know that getting enough sleep is one of the fundamental keys to overall health and well-being. But, achieving optimal shuteye and truly winding down at night are skills that few seem to have mastered.

My only suggestion would be to add five more minutes of reflexion at the end.

Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a "work hard, play hard" lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.

Where does On My Knees rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was by far the most enjoyable experience I've had with an audiobook thus far. Because I was already familiar with the story (I read the book in nine hours on release day) I was able to really get into the performance aspect of this book. I love the characters and felt like these narrators really captured the spirit of not only the story but of the characters themselves.

What did you like best about this story?

My favorite thing about this love story is that it is one that relates to such a broad range of readers. Cam and Maya are both damaged, neither of them comes to the table offering the world to the other. Cam was my hero because he was an everyman...he wasn't a millionaire dominant or a business tycoon who lavished exotic gifts to try and buy Maya. He knew her better than anyone and used his loved for her to win her over.

Have you listened to any of Jennifer Mack and David LeDoux ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first experience hearing Jennifer and David together, and overall I thought their performance was awesome. One thing I do not like is when she is reading lines for Cam or David is reading lines for Maya, it sometimes feels a little odd, but overall I thought it was a great performance.

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

This book was actually full of HEARTBREAKING moments that I found myself actually crying over Maya's turmoil! And moments where I just wanted to scream at both of them in frustration, but overall it was just such a moving love story...an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. I miss Maya and Cam already!

Any additional comments?

This is not what I would call a "beach read". If that's what a reader is looking for this is not the right book. This was an emotional story of love, loss, forgiveness and redemption. I would recommend it to EVERYONE, just be prepared for a very intense read (and/or listen).

Blake Landon is a man who has everything - wealth, good looks, and the love of Erica Hathaway. The power couple has been through hell and back, and when life has torn them apart, somehow they have always found their way back to each other, more in love and stronger than ever. Erica has never been more ready to say I do. On the verge of making the ultimate commitment, she uncovers an unsettling chapter of Blake's history.

Where does Hard Limit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I do not listen to audiobooks all that often because it can be hard for me to concentrate on the story. I will say that I had already read this book before listening to the Audible book. I was riveted to this story, in fact I was up all night because I just could not choose a stopping point.

What did you like best about this story?

I didn't enjoy the narrators as much as I would have liked to. I had hoped that the voices would seem more like the Blake and Erica that I had in my mind, however I was glad that there were two separate narrators, a man and a woman, so it was easier to keep track of which point of view I was listening to (the chapters alternate between the POV of the male and female lead.)

What about Jennifer Stark and Victor Bevine ’s performance did you like?

I felt like they did a nice job in the powerful scenes, which was pretty important for a book like this. Keep in mind that this is a fourth book in a series so it would be helpful to have read the first three books in the series before listening to this audio book. I would have like the narrators to feel more like the characters I had in my mind. Victor did not strike me as a dominant male at all.

Any additional comments?

Loved it Meredith! I'll be excited to get the rest of the Hacker Series Hardwired, Hardpressed, and Hardline) audio books when they become available, but I am most excited for On My Knees and the next books in the Bridge series.
