Five minutes until the interview begins. Fresh on the heels of her college graduation, Cameron Heart has landed an interview at a prestigious architecture firm. Four minutes until the interview. She knows she's only there because the owner, Grayson Cole, is her older sister's friend. Three minutes. For the last seven years, Grayson has been the most intimidating man Cammie has ever had the pleasure - or displeasure - of being around.

I've enjoyed the other 3 or so books I've listened to by R.S.Grey. This one I couldn't stomach. Neither main character was tolerable. Everyone is rude, condescending, and unprofessional. The female protagonist is millenial in the worst sense. She is intelligent but immature and obsessed with her boss who is equally cringe worthy. Narrator was good but the characters were bad enough for me to return the book.

Denae Lacroix is a beautiful MI5 agent on a deadly mission. Sent to the Scottish Highlands to spy on the mysterious Dreagan Industries, she discovers too late that she's been set up - as human bait. She is an irresistible lure for a man who has not seen or touched a woman for centuries. He is a man with a destiny - and a desire - that could destroy them both. It's been 1,200 years since Kellan has walked among humans - and there's no denying the erotically charged attraction he feels for Denae. But as a Dragon King, he is sworn to protect his secrets.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Okay story line. You could tell rather uncomfortably that you were coming into an already established story. This book said book one. But there are three prequels. I wish I had read the three preceding books first. They would have answered questions that left you feeling you were jumping into the middle of something. I'll read (not listen) to the first book. I make no promises beyond that.

Would you be willing to try another one of Antony Ferguson’s performances?

Oh Mr. Ferguson. I'm from Texas. I'm sure you know where I'm going with this. Not being Scot or English, I think you did a splendid job on those accents. Texas ... NO my friend. You gave the main character a rather exaggerated Georgia Southern Belle accent that was further exacerbated by the fact you're a male trying to give her a feminine sound. For me, it was VERY cringe worthy!! Texans, no matter the part of this great state or how strong their dialect, DO NOT sound like that. It was hard for me to get through the book first and foremost for this reason. Better to go vanilla American, than miss.

Could you see Darkest Flame being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe. It could easily look very cheaply done if not done right.

Any additional comments?

I advise reading the prequels before this one!

At Twin Oaks Country Club, there are the fortunate ones, and then there are the rest of us: the waiters, the caddies, the valets, and in my case, the cabana girls. Most days, I’m poolside in a pleated skirt, dishing out margaritas to tycoons and titans. It’s not exactly my dream job, but it does come with one perk.... James Ashwood. He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit. Besides being a legacy member at the club, he’s a tech mogul and Austin’s most eligible bachelor.

This is about the fourth book I've listened to by this author. I enjoy her humor and believable storyline. Good narrator too on this one. I look forward to the next one.

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing 19-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper. A face that makes girls weep - check. Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) - check. Enough confidence to shift the earth's gravitational pull - double check. Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits. Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear.

Loved this cheeky, sweet book! At the very first I wasn't sure I was going to like this narrator. That lasted all of two paragraphs! She was great! Grey had me laughing out loud several times and chuckling pretty consistently. The romance was sweet and lusty without being crude. This was my second book of hers and I must say, she has a new loyal reader in me. It's with great confidence and anticipation that I buy the next in this series!

When Rosalind Sharpe gains the attention of the deliciously wicked duke of Avendale, she's torn between her distracting attraction to the notorious rogue and the knowledge that he - rich as Croesus - is the perfect target for a deception that will put her swindling days behind her.

I was expecting another humorous and entertaining historical. it was that and more. This book really touched my heart! I believe it's her best yet. I haven't given 5 stars to anyone in a while. I did this book. The narration was good, but I had to speed up the playback from 1x to 1.25x. Sounded normal after that. Before, she sounded a bit like she'd taken too much hydrocodone! Loved loved this story!!
