They say Paris is always a good idea.... You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can't even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let's not even mention how I'll ever make it through a day at my new office. Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he's charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me.

Some nights are meant to remain a secret. Some nights are meant to be for fun. Some nights are meant to last just one night. It was never supposed to happen. But we couldn't stop ourselves. One night became too many. He was the one man I wasn't supposed to want. The one man I wasn't supposed to have. The one man that could never possibly be my Mr. Right. However, he's the one man I can't get out of my mind. He's the one man that's going to change everything.

Worst book ever! This author was clearly challenged to write a book wherein she would say each sentence three times in three different ways. It is the only excuse I can come up with. Her other books have been at minimum, average. she's not a 5 star witter but not THIS poorly executed. Vague and blase' . (Very little story line, abundant reiteration.) Waste of my money. & time.

Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once-boring life absolutely insane.

On sight, in love, no! the brother, rock stars with tragic vaguely explained stories. Fianced without asking, tragedy, happy ever after. vague unexplained questions. no merit, no substance, no believability. struggled to listen. ugh. Her books usually are much more entertaining.

I listen to 8-10 audiobooks every week while I work. I have never before encountered a narrator who Made me squeamish to the point that I did not think I could continue listening. Her author/ female narrators voice was pleasant enough, but every time she pauses you could hear the liquids in her mouth. It thoroughly discusted me. The male narrator never did it. Either the author should leave the narrating to the professionals, or edit out her swallowing swishing yucky mouth noises. Ruined the book for me.
