Nice to see this family again!
Swing - Adriana Locke

*4.5 STARS*!

 

Great follow up to the Landry Family Series. I really like this family.

This time around we get Lincoln Landry, youngest boy, hot as sin baseball player. He sees the woman of his dreams when he's on an elevator and his life is never gonna be the same.

I loved the fact that as hot for him as Ryan Danielle was, she wouldn't give Lincoln the time of day at first. It really put him off his game. LOL

and what the heck is about those Landry books and food items. First it was Barrett and the grapes (I'll have to revisit that one) and now it's Lincoln and the ice. Those boys certainly are inventive in the bedroom.

Huxley made his appearance in this book too. I loved the heart-to-heart he and lincoln had about what Hux's mom and Barrett do when they are in their bedroom. LOL

But what made the story for me was how all in Lincoln was. Once he knew that was it. I love that. it's the sexiest thing ever when a man is like that. I'm so glad that he was willing to fight for what he wanted.

I can't wait to start the next book in the series. I'm loving these Landrys.

Audio on this one is excellent. The first one too. I love these two narrators. They are both new to me but they do an awesome job.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - J.K. Rowling,Jim Dale

Jim Dale is really a phenomenal narrator. In addition to having a gazillion voices to remember how to portray, he makes each of them memorable and constantly evolving along with the character's story arc. The Harry we see (and listen to) here - aged 14, with the beginnings of adolescent fears and insecurities - is not the naive 11-year-old of the first book. The narration makes that clear: Harry sounds older, more jaded and - by the end of the novel - frustrated with how people perceive him. Voldemort, too, experiences a shift in tone, gaining in substance as his own body becomes stronger and more independent.

 

As with the previous novels, I'm catching details that I now know will become important later on in the series. This is, along with the sheer pleasure of it, a great motivator for revisiting the series. It probably won't be the last re-read/re-listen either. On to the next book!

Hard to read, hard to rate...
Now Everyone Will Know: The Perfect Husband, His Shattering Secret, My Rediscovered Life - Maggie Kneip

This is a hard book to rate. It's someone story, so it doesn't matter how well you think it progressed. It's what happened, right?

I have so many feelings about this. I feel bad for this mother whose world was ripped apart by what then a killer disease. It's been so long since the days when I grew up in the 80's when AIDS was the boogie man lurking around the corner.

What strikes me most about this story is the fact that Maggie never got the benefit of having closure. She bathed and diapered this man and he never apologized, thanked her, or confessed beyond stating that he "slept with men in Los Angeles" which was before they met.

And the had to swallow a lot of anger for her kids and her own sanity when she deserved the right to own that.

I can't imagine what a burden that must have been. But good for her for having this outlet to give some closure and to be able to shed some light on a secret that shouldn't have been hers to bear.

I think that this story will stay with me for a long time. I'm glad to hear that she was able to find some peace and let go of all that subterfuge and stress. I hope that she continues to be blessed with it.

Cute!
Forbidden Fling (Wildwood Book 1) - Skye Jordan

Forbidden Fling (Wildwood Book 1) - Skye Jordan 

 

I thought this was cute.  It was different for me than the Renegades series by the author.  I was mad though that our hero wasn't just a bit more honest with the heroine as their relationship developed.  So, it made the quick wrap up at the end more unbelievable.  But, other than that, it was a fun, quick read, and the narration was great too!

Pretty good read...
Levitate - Kaylee Ryan

Levitate - Kaylee Ryan 

 

*3.5 STARS*

 

This was a pretty good read.  It was very angsty with both Max and Kensington's backgrounds but it lent importance to the story.  I thought it unrealistic with Max going off with some chick after getting rejected by Kensi that Kensi would fall for his charms so easily, but it is fiction.

 

I also had a hard time believing the scene between Max, Kensi and Justin (JT) at the bar at the end of the book.  Too simple.

 

I was glad to see that Max's mom never made an actual appearance in the book.  There were a few scenes in the book that made me roll my eyes, but it certainly didn't take away from the story. 

 

I listened to this one on audio and I find that audio really highlights the fact that some authors write dialogue in a way that people don't actually speak.  Like when authors don't use contractions in their dialogue. It sounds odd.  There weren't (see I used a contraction there) a ton of parts where that happened but when it did, I really is highlighted with the audio.

 

This is my first book by this author and I'd definitely try another one of her books.  I liked the characters and the story.  So, I look forward to trying more of her work soon.
