The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was 14, and I’m still not over her. Problem: She still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last 15 years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

I absolutely love this book. The characters, the story, the narration and especially the 2 year olds. I laughed out loud and even snorted a few times! It is a very real love story that isn't exactly perfect all the time but that's life! I already downloaded the other two couples books to read next

After a difficult few years, Tilly Adams is ready for life to start going right. Though she has a case of first-day nerves teaching art at the local community college, she knows it isn’t anything a few snuggles from her rescue puppy won’t cure. Until she sees Dylan Scott again, her onetime BFF and first love sitting in the front row.

I love the flow of the story and the witty banter between characters. I like a more fun loving, less angst and self loathing story line as in this book. Sydney Landon has started this new series out perfectly. I'm looking forward to a Dana and Asher romance next!

I just listened to this book on Audible.com and I loved it! The story is fast paced, sexy and hilarious, also the cast of characters are very smart and witty. One of the best narrated books ever! The different characters were easily distinguishable and the narration was done with great acting skills.
Just bought the next book ( I hope there will be more) I'm gonna be up all night listening. I hope for more from both author and narrator!

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise - until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed. All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy.… As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If this was combined as one book with both points of view...Easy Breakable? Not enough new stuff for it to be worthwhile.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not a two book POV for sure!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Zachary Webber?

Narration was great...story just a rerun.

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

Again, it should have been one book not two.

Any additional comments?

Just kinda feel ripped off...I have enjoyed several other books by this author until this series.

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

What made the experience of listening to Lick the most enjoyable?

This is a great romance! It's also very hot,hot, hot and impossible to put down.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lick?

When they went away for the weekend and actually talked about what happened.

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

She has that great ability to distinguish both male and female voices without sounding cartoon like. I love how she brings so much emotion to the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hot Rock and true Love?

Any additional comments?

This was a wonderful surprise read. I say it's a great use of a credit!

What made the experience of listening to All You Need Is Love the most enjoyable?

I love great audio books for when i'm driving, working around the house and when my eyes are just tired from reading too much. I tend to buy my favorite authors on audio, like Marie Force, so I can listen over and over.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I fell in love with the whole family but especially Will and Elmer.

What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

I enjoy Kate Rudd. She makes the characters come to life with unique voice changes and mannerisms.

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

There were so many great moments in this story! I loved when Molly met Cam and she just accepted her like she new she needed a mother and family.

Any additional comments?

Marie makes every character so real, so unique but always united by love, friends and family.
