Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I've ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably. Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.

Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Jill Redfield and Jeremy York ?

The performers were great. I normally enjoy Sylvia Day - but I believe this series has been unnecessarily dragged out and this book had to much filling of - he's so well endowed, he's so big; ACE, Angel, can't tolerate being without you, you are my life ....it is endless - we get it they are obsessed with each other, he's wealthy and well endowed and she is a goddess and they can't be without each other.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sylvia Day again?

Hmm not really - too repetitive.

What does Jill Redfield and Jeremy York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They are great - I've listened to many an audiobook by Jeremy York and they make the story come to life - it's the story that could be improved by cutting it down by a few thousand words.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.

Any additional comments?

This series could have been so much better - in the beginning the characters came to life, then they ended up being more caricatures.

Abducted at 18. Held captive for 15 months. It reads like one of those headlines. And yes, I did it. I stole her. Nora, with her long dark hair and silky skin. She's my weakness, my obsession. I'm not a good man. I never pretended to be one. She can love me, but she can't change me. I can, however, change her. My name is Julian Esguerra, and Nora is mine to keep.

If you could sum up Keep Me in three words, what would they be?

Raw, Real and Hot

What was one of the most memorable moments of Keep Me?

The sex scenes are hot - but Norah shooting Majid was awsome.

What about Roberto Scarlato and Shirl Rae ’s performance did you like?

They were very good - they actually added to to story - I've read the book but hey made it come to life, in a non-corny way.

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

Julian is a sociopath - he doesn't pretend to be anything else - he's real about it all. Norah is intelligent and acknowledges what has happened but is accepting of it. The characters have developed, they are not your "normal" couple but they are lovely to watch.

Any additional comments?

Well done - can't wait for the final book.

Journalist Sophie Ryder has been following Emery Lockwood's story since she was a little girl.

Even if it means venturing deep into the seductive world of the Gilded Cuff, a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island's Gold Coast and Emery's personal playground.

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

Some originality and a lead lady that actually has a backbone and doesn't vacillate for the sake of the author filling time in "though" dialogue.

Has The Gilded Cuff turned you off from other books in this genre?

Pretty much - it was a waste of a credit.

What three words best describe Veronica Den’s voice?

Good.

What character would you cut from The Gilded Cuff?

All of them -

I have downloaded the series but there does not seem to be a Book 4 in the Audible version.

It is a great story - love it - very dark though it doesn't really raise much hope for mankind - but it is a great read.

I'm not sure Roy Dotrice's reading does justice to the characters in the book. His many voiced characters show he is a talented man but when Denarey's part is read I can't visualise a 15-16 year old girl. The characters all sound seedy - was that George Martin's intention?

As Luce learns more about her past, and discovers that the lives she’s already lived hold the key to her future happiness; she starts to wonder if Daniel has told her the whole truth. What if his version of events isn’t the way things happened? What if that means that she’s really meant to be with someone else?

This is a series and should clearly be labeled as such. In reading book 2 I am no clearer about the fallen angel and Lucinda than I was when I read Book 1. Series should have a natural build up with substance this is repetitive and I feel I am in limbo. There is a whole history about Daniel and Lucinda - Lucinda is in an special angel offspring school - she is told people have read about their love story for centuries - and what she is not curious to read about it herself and discover more. One thing about Lucinda - she is not very bright...But I've read two - I will read the third and hopefully the last - cross my fingers there will be more substance to the next one..
