Some days, all you need is a message from a stranger. Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas. The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional. Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect. What she didn't count on was falling in love with the guy.

I love reading Mariana Zapata stories! I wish there were more in the library. Can't wait for the next in this series or any other from her. I love the Santos family stories so far. Funny and heart warming. I don't review many books I've listened to but I really loved the way this book came together.

A one-night stand with a handsome stranger wasn't a problem - until he tries to steal her company.

She should know, since Antonio's a one-night stand she thought she'd never see again. Antonio wants to take over more than her company, he wants her as part of the acquisition. Let the games begin....

I don't think his parents expected him to live up to his name - Racer Tate - but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted. He's the fastest, fiercest driver around. Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep...but his smile sends me to my knees. The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He's secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss....

New York Times best-selling author Tatum Longley is being forced out of her comfort zone. Her publisher needs her to change from hard-hitting nonfiction to romance. But first, she must find a muse. Angelo has no desire to form relationships, when a very persistent Tatum makes him an offer that nearly knocks this six-foot-five, long-haired, tattooed, dangerous-looking man on his ass. Will he be able to resist the temptation? Or will he allow her to use him?

What did you love best about Use Me: Kid's Story?

Always love when the broken becomes whole again.. and Angelo deserves to be whole and proud of his actions in his past.

What didn’t you like about Alexandra Shawnee and Aiden Snow ’s performance?

Love Aiden Snow's performance but I almost could not listen to Alexandra's narration of Tatum.. had to fast forward through some of her sections just to get through the story.

Liam. Hometown boy makes good. High school hero becomes NHL star. All of my dreams came true. So why don't I feel happy? I'm on the road a lot, with a new groupie in my bed at a different luxury hotel every night. But all I can think about is my sister's best friend, Maddie. She's the only woman who ever meant something to me. And, God, was she sexy back in the day. I can still feel her wrapped around me.

What did you like best about Pull Out? What did you like least?

The story was okay... Thank god it was short because the worst thing about this was trying to listen to the narrator ..

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The reading was good, but the voices created were distracting.

When Callie Williams signed up to the "bride bidder" app she was in a desperate situation. On the brink of losing her home, she needed money and she needed it fast. Allowing herself to be sold as a bride to a wealthy man was supposed to be a last resort for Callie, but she soon realized it was her only option. When billionaire Thomas Dearborn signed up to the "bride bidder" app he was not totally interested in finding a traditional wife.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I almost could not get through this book due to the Narrator. I would recommend reading this book and not listening to the slow, mellow reader.

How could the performance have been better?

Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

Look, but don't touch.... She might as well wear a neon sign that says it. It just makes me want her more. She might be above me in every way, but I still want her under me. I've got no business touching her rich-girl skin, but that won't stop me from stealing a taste. Because rules were meant to be broken - especially when the prize is so fine. In a world where nothing is as it seems, what's buried beneath these lies?

If you could sum up Beneath These Lies in three words, what would they be?

Addicted to Beneath!! The narration was fantastic, as usual for two of my favorite narrators, S.York. & A.Arndt. ... So many twists in this story but I love the final reveal which I won't spoil.. I was not sure about Valentina in this story, but she improved with the story. Can't wait for the next addition!!
