I used to believe there were lines in life you don't cross. Don't lie. Don't cheat. Don't steal. Until I learned people don't always practice what they preach. I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything. Then I got the call no one wants, and I'm back in New Orleans. What I don't expect is for her to be here, too. Another line you don't cross? Don't touch your best friend's little sister. She's always been off-limits. Too bad I don't follow the rules anymore.

Would you consider the audio edition of Beneath the Truth to be better than the print version?

I do not read printed versions. I am an exclusive audio listener.

What other book might you compare Beneath the Truth to and why?

It follows the characters of the others in this series perfectly.

Which character – as performed by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York – was your favorite?

I love both. They are great narrators and I can automatically buy whatever books they narrate.

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

First of all the whole series should be in film. Secondly, the tag line would be "Love Conquers All".

When Catalina walks in the door, my heart stops. She's my best friend's little sister, Etta's babysitter, and hot as hell. The timing is all wrong. She's too young, lost, and doesn't know what she wants. I have a baby and don't need another person to take care of. But then I take her against the wall and she finds her way into my motherf*cking heart. The truth is, I'm the lost cause, and Catalina might be the one person who can save me.

After being raised by my asshole police officer father and my subservient mother, I went off to college with a penchant for outlaw alpha males. I knew Dalton Biskette was in the Selected Sinners MC, and a bad boy; but the night he walked into my bar I had no idea just how bad he really was. Covered in tattoos, muscles, and wearing his cut, he exuded masculinity and sex from his every pore. On the first night he made me laugh, he made me uncomfortable, and he made me have sex with him. Well, the last part’s a lie, I wanted it more than he did.

I get what I want. Sex. Money. Fame. But Bexley is the only thing I've ever needed. Problem is, she doesn't think I've changed my wild ways. And f*ck, I haven't. But I will. For her, I will do anything. She was my best friend, but I'm ready to make her my woman. I just need to convince her I'm not the guy I used to be. That I'm more than an actor; I can be her leading man.

My name is Lily Gilmore, and I was supposed to be getting married today. That was until I found my fiancé having sex with my sister in the church moments before I was supposed to walk down the aisle. I grew up with a father who was a womanizer and cheated on my mother every moment he had the chance. He would even stoop as low as to take me and my sister with him on his trysts when we were younger. Cheating was all I grew up with, and I vowed never to live the life my mother did.

What made the experience of listening to Love in Between the most enjoyable?

The characters. They are unique and heartbreaking at times. Each one having survived and overcome adversity.

What other book might you compare Love in Between to and why?

I believe each book that I review stands on its own merit. Comparisons between other books would not be fair to the authors that write them.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when his niece "interrupts them". It made me laugh. She was smart beyond her years and oh so funny. I love her bluntness.

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

The HEA always move me. True love does prevail and not just in books.

Any additional comments?

I never get compensated for any of my reviews and have not been offered this or any other book for free in exchange for my review. Yes I give a lot of high marks, but that is mainly because if it not good I can't bring myself to finish.

When you're a rock god, fame and fortune are your two best friends, but they can be fickle bitches. Everyone wants a piece of me and I have no clue how to deal with it all. I'm being sued, pressured to sign contracts, and fending off rabid women who want to steal my virtue. Well, not that I really have any virtue, but still...my life has turned completely bat-shit crazy. That's why I need Emma Peterson. She got me out of a bit of a jam once, and I know she can do it again. The only problem is that sweet, prim, and totally straight-laced Emma doesn't want anything to do with me.

Where does Sexy Lies and Rock & Roll rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best books I have listened to in a long while.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love both Emma and Ethan. I loved to see the transformation of Emma from an unsure, insecure new lawyer to someone with tenacity and poise. I also loved the transformation from one night stand cocky rock star to Ethan being true to himself, loving only one woman and being willing to finally fight for her.

What does Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are go to narrators for me. I often buy an audiobook based only on the fact that they are the narrators. They deliver the true heart and soul of each book they narrate.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, Tyler's behavior made me extremely mad for all that he was willing to do which ended up hurting Ethan and sad for Ethan who ultimately lost who he thought was his best friend. I was so glad that he was left at a rest area.

Any additional comments?

This is definitely worth the credit I spent on it.
