After her senior year of high school leaves behind nothing but heartache, Olivia Beaumont is sure of this: She's no stupid girl. She sets out for Winston College, promising herself that she will remain focused on her first and only love - astronomy.

Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

With no running water or electricity in their home and no parents around to protect them, they quickly learned how to survive and depend only on each other. When a tragic accident took Mike away from Layton and the only other person that he ever let into his heart walked away from him, leaving his heart shattered, Layton focused all of his time and energy into the ranch he and his brother dreamed of.

They call her "the husband maker" and sadly, it fits. Every guy she's dated since high school has gone on to marry the next girl they date. Not two or three girls down the road. The very next one. Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed? When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she's not destined to be single forever.

Would you listen to The Husband Maker again? Why?

Yes it was a great story i enjoyed it although there are some parts that i felt dragged a bit and was unnecessary

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Husband Maker?

The ex boyfriends and how they broke up with the main character

The nicknames

the relationship with the best friend that makes you wonder could it be something there

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

The narrator did a great job for the most part but i felt it could have been a tad better if she put just a little more energy into each character

Any additional comments?

At the end of the book there is a cliffhanger and i Cant wait to hear the next book

FOR RENT: Top two floors of beautifully renovated brownstone, 1300 sq. ft., 2BR 2BA, eat-in kitchen, one block to parks and playgrounds. No broker's fee. Susan and Alex Wendt have found their dream apartment. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up. Big mistake.

Which character – as performed by Elisabeth Rodgers – was your favorite?

Elisabeth Rodgers is definitely one of those narrators who delivers and execute each character she is giving she did an excellent job Any book narrated by her is worth a try

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

Throughout the book I found myself getting really annoyed at the main character but her character also kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time which made the book enjoyable

Any additional comments?

I listened to this book in one sitting I really liked it and it was worth the credit for the for the moment. It did deliver on suspense as I said and kept me on the edge of my seat although I more than likely will not listen to it again just because

Charlize "Charlie" Edwards certainly knows, in theory, what it takes to lead a successful and happy life. But she's also turning 30, chronically single, and faced with serving as maid of honor at her younger sister's wedding. Charlie finds herself struggling to juggle the chaos of wedding planning (while wondering if she'll ever wear the white dress herself), her all-consuming job for lunatic boss Stanton, and a serious crush on Jordan, a photographer on the set of Drew's latest feature - a man who might actually return her feelings.

Would you consider the audio edition of A Total Waste of Makeup to be better than the print version?

yes it felt like you was getting it from someone else's point of view and how they see it and i just love how they brought life to each character no two characters where the same and Allyson Ryan performance was perfect through out the whole book

Which character – as performed by Allyson Ryan – was your favorite?

Drew I felt like I could really get to know him although he was unpredictable I feel his energy and personality just brought life to this story and made me wish I got to know more of him

This book was very great it was just one of those books that I could not put down. I've finished in two days and I love every minute of it I think ima listen to it again and again and again and again
