Absolutely Perfect Romantic Comedy

What made the experience of listening to Blown Away the most enjoyable?

Angie Hickman's performance made listening to Blown Away a most enjoyable experience.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cade is my favorite character because he is absolutely clueless even after he finds out he is going to be a father.

I have really enjoyed listening to Angie Hickman grow as a narrator. She gets better with each performance!

I Had to Buy the Next Book Before I Finished!!!!!

If you could sum up The First Hostage in three words, what would they be?

Frightening, action and adventure

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely! Terrorists have taken the president hostage and somehow JB Collins, journalist, is right in the thick of things. An unlikely hero, Collins somehow seems to know everything about military maneuvers, handling any sort of weapon, etc.

Which scene was your favorite?

I cannot reveal that without giving away the ending. I will save the worst scene is what JB finds in caves and cages near the end of the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

USA President Taken Hostage - Time Is Running Out

Any additional comments?

There are some pretty gruesome scenes and descriptions. A lot of violence, as well.

Advance Copy Review


In some undisclosed country, this is a modern day (I think) war romance. Anya is on the rebel side, starving but beautiful. Fynn is a prince in the conquering army. He doesn't care who Anya is or where she is from, he only knows that he needs her.

The last hour of the program is (not a spoiler if you have read the publisher summary) continuous sex – FYI

The story is fairly good – I have a hit or miss record with Skye Corgan. I will give the story 3.75 strong stars

The narration by Kira Omans is okay. Her performance of Anya is good but Fynn is a bit slow. However, if I turned the speed up (which usually helps) the cadence was off. This performance receives 3 stars.

Overall I am rating this book at 3.75 solid stars. The story was good and the steaminess was there, as well. I am a bit disappointed with the performance.

Brilliant Stories Filled Intrigue and Thrills

Would you listen to Book Hits: Gripping Short Thrillers Collection again? Why?

Possibly. I have a lot of books in my TBR (to be read) pile. However, these would be perfect to listen to again while waiting for an appointment, picking up kids from school activities or a short road trip.

Which scene was your favorite?

The most memorable scene is the last in TAKEN. I don't think it was my favorite, but it is the one that will stick with me the longest.

Any additional comments?

This series which runs at just under 4 hours for 4 books, takes the listener all over the country and introduces 4 very different circumstances. When I * agreed to listen in exchange for my unbiased review, I was hesitant. However, once I began listening, I HAD to finish it in one sitting.

Jay Prichard Performs all of the characters seamlessly. His narration, along with the content, had me from "page 1". Prichard never disappoints.

I would recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of mystery, thrillers and detective style books. Surprisingly, there is no strong language and very little descriptions of violence. It is perfect for all audiences, in my opinion.

A Political Strategy of Niccolò Machiavelli

The Prince: A Political Strategy of Niccolò Machiavelli

The Prince explores different styles of principalities, individuals who have been blessed/cursed with the title and the successfulness by which their reign is judged.

This felt like a college lecture. I could easily see it fitting into a world history course. It is very detailed but not overwhelming.

The narration of Carson Beck was spot on. He is engaging, keeping the listener listen without going over the top. 4.5 stars

I LOVED These 'Mercenaries' I'd Trust Them


These 2 books are really beyond description. Professional Integrity deals with the Princess, a werewolf and a murder for hire.

The Jester deals with how the future is determined by the choices we make now.

I encourage you to read the publisher summary on each book for more details. I do not feel that I can add anything further without spoiling.

Tim Gerard Reynolds narrates all these whimsical characters brilliantly! 5 stars

A Rare 5 Star Story. I Loved It


To say that Natalie is reluctant to go out with her friends on New Year's Eve is an understatement. However, a certain man saves her from an unwanted advance right before midnight. The following 2 New Year's Eves, the same certain man makes it a point to be at the same bar where he originally met Natalie.

However, after being jilted, Natalie swears off of her romantic notions and focuses on her work. Several years later the mystery man reappears… What will Natalie decide to do? Continue to live life as an angry feminist or open her heart?

This is a wonderfully, sweet book. Kudos to Laura Chapman for writing a beautiful romance that is free of the current, popular trappings (graphic details.)

Kay Heart has a pretty name as well as pretty voice. She is able to capture each of the characters' essence(s). Well done!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I would love to listen to a book(s) by Laura Chapman that follows these characters and/or the other characters we met in What Happens at Midnight. It is a perfect set up for a series, in my opinion.

Risk the Queen

This is a clever and sort of lighthearted whodunit. Lennie is on the trail of a stolen brooch. She is a smart detective, even though she is a girl… Something that is not heard of in 1925.

My favorite line of the story is, "I don't lie, I lied." Lennie will do or say anything she has to to get to the bottom of things.

Gracia Gillund is a wonderful narrator. 4.5 solid stars
