Sample Sunday | Audible Review → The Golden Dynasty by Kristen Ashley

The Best Audio Book I Have Listened To! There is nothing better than listening to an audio of one of your all-time favorite books [my book review], except having that audio be your all-time favorite! Seriously, this was so well done, I have listened to it twice! Tillie Hooper is THE BOMB! She presented this story in such a way that I felt every single emotion that Kristen Ashley wrote for her characters. Normally, I struggle with narrators speaking the other sex’s lines. But Tillie Hooper does a phenomenal job as Dax Lahn. Let’s talk about Lahn. I mean, this Warrior […]

Sample Sunday | Audible Review and Book Review → Cocky Bastard by Ward and Keeland

Sample Sunday | Audible Review and Book Review → Cocky Bastard by Ward and Keeland

I needed a feel-good book, and this was it! So not what I expected, but so glad it wasn’t all the same! This will be a dual review. One of the story, and one of the audio. First, the story! Simply put, it was great. I really had no idea what the story was about when I picked it up. I had done a promo tour for this back in the fall, and from the teasers, I thought this was going to be a book about a guy who was a playboy and needed to be redeemed. I thought he […]

Sample Sunday | Audible Review →  Sebring by Kristen Ashley

This was seriously addictive. I started listening to the audio while I was packing to go out of town. I listened on the way to my destination and finished reading/listening at the hotel that evening. Nick and Olivia’s story was steamy and romantic. Olivia’s father is the one who killed (through his henchman) Nick’s former girlfriend, Hettie. Nick is out for vengeance, through Olivia. It is through her, he plans to get to her father. What starts as manipulation through seduction, turns into Nick caring for Olivia. Olivia was living a seriously crap life. Her family sucked, she was powerless […]

Sample Sunday | Audible Review → The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

Sample Sunday | Audible Review →  The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

I am among the very few who have never read The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. There are many reviews posted about this book and the majority of my friends have read and loved it. When the audio became available for me to listen to I thought it would be a great opportunity to see what the “fuss” was about. And I am so incredibly glad that I did. And I am thankful that I listened to it on audio. Because the female narrator – Candace Thaxton, was incredible! She brought so much to the story. I was enthralled […]

Sample Sunday | Audible Review → Audio Review Hold On by Kristen Ashley

Sample Sunday | Audible Review →  Audio Review Hold On by Kristen Ashley

Just as I adored the written version, I LOVED the audio of HOLD ON. The narrator of Hold On was perfect for me. Erin Bennett’s intonations were spot on. She handled male and female voices with care, avoiding caricatures. There are many characters in a KA book. The narrator didn’t get hung up on that. She didn’t try to “sound like a man” or completely alter her voice  during a dialogue to designate a different character. Rather, with a slight tone change she fluidly went through the dialogue and continued the story. With one exception. Ryker. He was portrayed on one […]

Sample Sunday | Audible Review →  Making Faces by Amy Harmon

I don’t know about you, but this summer was very busy. Actually for me, I have been been running ragged since about April of last year. Many of you know my daughter graduated High School last year so with that came a crazy, wild, yet fun adventure – full of planning parties, shopping for college and then eventually sending her off to school. Yep, that last part wasn’t too much fun, but what can ya do? Because of my schedule I haven’t posted a Sample Sunday in a couple of months, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had the opportunity […]

Sample Sunday | Audible Review → Flat-Out Celeste by Jessica Park

    This Sample Sunday is a week or so late…   This should have been posted in April… Sorry.  As it does, life tends to get in the way and make it impossible to get everything done that we want/need to.  But in this case, it was in a good way.  I listened to the audio version of Flat-Out Celeste throughout the month of April in my car driving to and from running the errands needed to make my daughter’s high school graduation party a success.  But the best part was that she listened to it with me. How […]
