Joseph Anderson has decided it's time for his three successful sons to find brides. Joseph wants grandchildren to fill his mansion, and he wants them immediately. His eldest son, Lucas, is successful in all areas of his life, except love, and Joseph begins matchmaking. He finds Amy Harper and deems her the perfect daughter-in-law. He just needs to get her and Lucas to both realize they're made for each other. Anderson is wealthy, sexy, and stubborn. He has no desire to have any woman enter his life, causing chaos, or using his family's name.

What did you love best about The Billionaire Wins the Game?

Everything. The storyline was predictable but the narrator was that good, it kept me listening to the title.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joseph. Because he was determined to ensure that his son's are happily married before anything happens to him. While it would seem he was mentioned not that often in the title for a somewhat main character... He was the backbone of the title.

Which character – as performed by Lilly Swan – was your favorite?

Jessica. Her innocents was so real and pure.

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

Yes, when Jessica was found laying in the bathroom on the floor. I thought she was going to lose the baby.

Any additional comments?

Coming from a lesbian this title is well worth the listen. Very nice.

First time I saw her was in the mirror on my locker door. I'd kicked my swim gear onto the bottom shelf and was reaching to the top for my calc book when she opened her locker across the hall. She had a streaked blonde ponytail dangling out the back of her baseball cap.... We slammed our lockers in unison and turned. Her eyes met mine. "Hi," she said, smiling. My stomach fluttered. "Hi," I answered automatically. She was new. Had to be. I would've noticed her. She sauntered away, but not before I caught a glimpse of her T-shirt. It said: IMRU? Am I what?

If you could sum up Keeping You a Secret in three words, what would they be?

Inspirational, Motivating, Factual.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Keeping You a Secret?

When Cece finally told Holland the real reason she did not want her to meet her friends or come out of the closet. The fact that she was afraid to lose Holland is the real reason she lied to her. Though lying to your partner is still wrong. I absolutely love how Cece stuck with Holland through her being kicked out of the house as well. True love.

Have you listened to any of Rebekah Levin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I have not, but I will definitely be checking some more out.

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

Yes, there were parts that made me tear up. And there were parts that made me mad. Like the part where Hollands mom was hitting her for being inlove and being who she is.

Any additional comments?

This book is great for LGBT's who are going through the coming out phase. It'll be a great listen so they will know how to approach accepting who they are, and making the world know they are proud of who they are as an individual, a person and as a group.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book to anyone and I definitely plan on returning it.

What was most disappointing about Suzanne Wright’s story?

The book seems to be based solely on sex, it is ridiculous. What exactly is the moral of the story, where is the plot going. UGH

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jill Redfield?

yes.

Was Feral Sins worth the listening time?

NO!

Any additional comments?

This story could have been way better if they lessened the amount of time spent on writing about sex, increase the plot of the title, give them something to do other than be in each other!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you do when you wake up to a whole new life…with dangerous urges you can't control? Medic Drake McKennan has never been good at following protocol, so she doesn't think twice about rendering emergency care when a teenager's life is at stake - even if the young girl is in the throes of Were fever and any sane human should know better. It isn't the bright shining pain of the bite or even the wrenching agonies of the fever that convinces Drake everything in her life has changed.

Would you listen to The Midnight Hunt: Midnight Hunters, Book 1 again? Why?

Yes. The storyline is great, the raw passion between the characters is breath taking.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that Drake did not allow Silvan to deter her from getting what she wanted.

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

At first I hated her voice, the narration but I gradually got use to it and then realized based on narrators I have listened to before, there's no better narrator for the title.

Who was the most memorable character of The Midnight Hunt: Midnight Hunters, Book 1 and why?

Drake... I was dying for her to claim Silvan as her own.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook had me hurrying to get things done so I could continue listening. I love the characters, the storyline and the roles each individual played. well done!

Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....
