David has a very strong, soothing voice. I really enjoyed his performance. The Bible is not an easy story to read from pronunciation of words to keeping the story engaging for the listener. He did a great job. The only issue I heard was a few errors that were repeats/pick ups that were not corrected.

Hannah may have found her dream guy in Cooper Quinlan, and she's damned determined to plan the perfect wedding - no matter who she drives crazy.

Interesting story paralleling two different couples. The first follows Cody and Jacxson. The second, Cooper and Cody's sister, Quinlan. Cody is the sister with the heart of gold who'd do anything for anyone, including her long lost friend Belinda. Belinda appears with her little daughter, Bernice. Cody finds herself falling in love with Bernice and soon becomes her protector in difficult situations.

Cooper is a wealthy, businessman who has proposed to Quinlan. Quinlan has to decide whether she's marrying Cooper for love or wealth.

As the story continues, all sorts of unexpected twists and turns occur with an ensemble of characters.

J. Scott Bennett has a distinct, clear voice. He gives a strong performance with male characters. His narration is spot on.

An ancient medallion is unearthed in Pueblo, Colorado, revealing a secret that will rewrite the history of North America - the Vikings somehow made it to the continent's interior, centuries before Columbus made landfall, and there they built a city of gold. But today the Coelho Medallion has been stolen, and a linguist and researcher has been abducted in connection with the crime. Could the abductors be after the fabled city of gold? Or do they have a more sinister plot in mind?

The Coelho Medallion has been stolen. Where is it? A researcher, Evelyn has been kidnapped. Dan Coehler, her coworker is beside himself. Can he help rescue Evelyn in time by helping the FBI? Will the bad guy win and discover where the city of gold is?

The story is well written. The characters are well established and well rounded. The plot is entertaining and has a nice pace for keeping the reader/listener interested in the story line.

Richard Rieman gives another strong performance. The characters are well defined and clear. His pace and tempo move the story along at a nice, even pace. His diction is clear and articulate.

This was a very interesting collection of stories. As an artist, I have known my own collection of nightmare stories from being on the road but never imagined what could happen to bands as they traveled around the globe building their name and reputation. This was well worth the listen and well put together.

Richard Rieman did a great job telling these stories and keeping the compilation flowing from one story to the next. His diction is clear. He's articulate and interesting to listen to. Nice job.

In this fast paced story, Agent G is a hired assassin. Though he knows everything about others, he quickly realizes he has no idea about who he is or where he came from. He seeks his past memories. He agrees to continue killing in exchange for getting his memories back. He quickly realizes he's dealing with a psychopath client. This is a great, action filled story full of lots of twists and turns.

Jeffrey Kafer is PERFECT for the main character. Detective/Assassin stories fit his voice amazingly well. He gives a clear, fast paced, articulate performance.

This story is told through Beth, a pastor's wife who has passed on. Even in death, she questions where she is and what she needs to do to help a young teenage girl, Frankie. She travels back and fourth between two realms.

In one realm, we meet Lynn. Lynn is a climbing instructor who is working side by side with another instructor leading two other climbers. We learn that one of the climbers is in fact the pastor who Beth was married to. We also learn Beth had a divine intervention in setting this up in order to create the connection between Lynn and Frankie.

The other realm consists of Frankie. Frankie is a troubled teenager who is questioning just who she is and where she came from. Beth follows Frankie along her journey and is determined to make sure she is alright. She watches hoping that the two realms will come together.

Jannie Meisberber is an enjoyable narrator. She has a soft, gorgeous British accent. She's clear, articulate and easy on the ears.

Just a few short months after the shifter emergence tensions are already running high. Asked to join Alpha Squad to promote cooperation between shifters and human authorities, Eric King is not convinced of its relevance. Despite suspicion that the Secretary for Shifter Affairs is simply using the Squad as a way to boost his image, Eric's loyalty to the cause will not allow him to say no… But when Janine Williams catches his eye, Eric realizes he has much more pressing issues.

This paranormal shifter romance series is set in a dystopian future where fertile women are so rare that they are now bought and sold like commodities. Each book in the Sold series follows the fortunes of a curvy heroine who has been sold to a pair of hunky shifters with some very interesting (and arousing!) results). Each book features a different type of Wereshifter and can be listened to standalone and in any order!

I was provided this audiobook by author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased, honest review via Audiobook Boom

In book one, Kira is sold to produce children in a World (in the future) where there is a shortage of women able to conceive. When the story began, it reminded me of a kind of Hunger Games sort of story. Kira came from a small town where the general folk are living in poverty, barely able to survive. Kira allows herself to be sold to provide food for her family.

As the story progresses, we as the listener hear where she ends up. She must woo two brothers who belong to a hybrid dragon family and sleep with both of them. Whichever one gets her pregnant will become her husband.

I personally found this story interesting in the beginning but as it went on, it seemed to become redundant. I had difficulty listening and didn't finish the full three stories.

I personally am not a Meghan Kelly fan. I will say she does have very clear diction. I listened to one of her other stories and decided to give her a second chance. I find her style of performing unrealistic and difficult to listen to. She also reads in an extremely fast tempo. Her style comes across as reading rather than performing with little emotion or feeling in her performance. She has certain speech patterns which grate on my ear as a listener and I just wasn't able to get past the audio in order to finish the trilogy. I really tried.
