Laura and Alan

Any additional comments?

This series of short stories follows the women on Éveiller Drive. They all have their real life issues with their husbands, and as it does happen they lost their spark. What is a girl to do other than talk to their friends and formulate a plan on how to get that spark lit again. I think most women at one time or anther can relate to all the insecurities that these women face. The stories are short, but extremely steamy. This one follows Laura and Alan. They have been married for 14 years, and things has gotten a bit stale. Alan is tired of the same scheduled lackluster encounter. Can she let go of her control and let Alan have a spicy playful night?

Hot and steamy

One of my favorite of the series. Sometimes it is hard to find that spark between you and you significant other after so long. The motions of love making become almost robotic. Laura and Alan are no exception to that. After some of Laura's friends get together and come up with a plan, can she save her marriage? Listen and find out!

Quick fun hot story!

Laura is a woman who plans, so much that she even plans her intimate time with Alan. And that is getting old and stale for Alan. The thing I love most about these Éveiller Drive couples is they are all someone we can relate to. Laura and Alan are no exception. And it's interesting the things that you discover in an online chat.

With the Audbile version, Hollie once again did a fantastic job bring the story to life with her narration.

Spicy Sexy Short Story You Won’t Soon Forget!

Would you consider the audio edition of Laura & Alan to be better than the print version?

I like the audio version because it puts voices to the characters from the book. It also depends on the person narrating the story. I happen to love Hollie Jackson's voices for the characters in all the books I've listened to her narrate so far. That is not always the case with other books and narrators. They don't always fit with my imagination of what the character is supposed to sound like.

What did you like best about this story?

I love these stories because they are true to life and these situations actually happen to a lot of married couples who can probably relate to the couples on Éveiller Drive.

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

Yes, I've listened to quite a few books by Melanie James that Hollie Jackson has narrated and I loved all of them! I hope she is the one narrating the rest of the books in this series! Another awesome read!

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

When Laura overcomes her issues to try to fulfill her husband's erotic fantasy!
