Audiobook Review – Hot Asset

Hot Asset audiobook cover art

A sexy agent hounds Wall Street’s hottest new wolf in an exhilarating novel from New York Times best-selling author Lauren Layne. Ian Bradley is the definition of a Wall Street hotshot: seven-figure salary, designer suits, and a corner office. His drive off the floor is just as potent. Every woman who knows him has felt the rush. But now he’s met his match in Lara McKenzie – a woman with the power to bring Ian to his knees. An ambitious, whip-smart daughter of FBI agents, Lara is a rising star in fighting white-collar crime. Her latest case – the investigation of Ian Bradley for insider trading – could make her career. 

She knows a scoundrel when she sees one, and Ian fits the bill: a cocky, ridiculously handsome bad boy with a slick swagger. She’ll do anything to prove he’s guilty. He’ll do anything to prove he’s not. But it’s only a matter of time before their fierce battle of wits gets oh so hot and personal. Now taking down Ian has become more than business for Lara. It’s become a pleasure-and there’s more at risk than she ever dreamed.

This is the first book I’ve read it by Lauren Layne. She is a fantastic writer. I found myself really being able to slip into the story with no problem. After reading the last series that I did which was the broken love series by B.B Reid. I knew I definitely needed something that was light hearted. That is exactly what I got with this book. This is not typically my area because it deals with government agents but I knew that I would like it because there was a bad ass guy on Wall Street and I love reading about that.

Lauren writes characters that you want to get to know. Lara was really fun. I really liked all of her dialogue as well as her inner dialogue as well. She says a lot of really funny things. Both of her parents are government agent and that is what she aspires to be. So for Lara Be able to join the FBI she Has to investigate Ian.

Ian is not your typical Wall Street wolf. While he is rich and plans to stay that way he definitely has a soft side. This is what I like to see you he wasn’t handed everything he has he had to work for it. He came from very humble beginnings and it was a great story to kind of get into.

Sarah Hyland as Lara.

When it comes to our narrators Samantha Cook and Zachary Webber are awesome together. This is the first I have heard Samantha narrate and her voice acting is very smooth. Her in fractions on words you can really feel the emotion when she is reading. I think having her there it really did help bring the book to life and the range of voices that she has is incredible. You can definitely tell that she is a pro at this. Zachary is one of my favorite know he is my all-time favorite male narrator. His voice is sex. Anything he reads a instantly love. And honestly he makes books 1000 times better. It is absolutely perfect that the author is so amazing and the two narrators paired together created a true work of art.

10,000 % recommend this book.

Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please do not forget to feed the unicorns on your way out. As it is the holiday season they are granting wishes. So don’t forget to make a wish because you never know it might come true.

Until Next Time

Happy Reading

Audiobook Review – Heart Throb

He was just another dad at my daughter’s school. Another very hot, “former teen heartthrob” dad. One I couldn’t get involved with.

Lennox Reign was the hottest teen star, over 15 years ago. Now, he’s staring me daggers across the principal’s office.

Not my fault my daughter got in trouble the first day of school and I seem to have “bad mom” stamped on my forehead.

But now, not only do I have to see Lennox and his very grown-up body at school drop off, but we’re working together on the school bake sale.

If he could just stop being a brooding heart-breaker for like two seconds…

He says he wants to keep the past in the past and move forward with his life, but the closer we get and the more I uncover, the more I can’t help falling for the former actor.

The one who I know could easily break me.

And he will.

Review

Don’t look at the disclaimer out of the way. I did receive a code for free in exchange for an honest review. This in no way hinders my personal opinions on this book as you guys know I am always straightforward and honest about how I feel about that. Now that that’s over with let’s get on into the review.

This is a new to me author. Magan Vernon was such a delight to read her book. Although the book is very short it’s 4 1/2 hours long. There is a a lot of content smashed into a very short time period. It typically I’m not a fan of super short audiobooks because I feel like an author is trying to put a full story into a short amount of time. I don’t feel like the author typically takes their time and the story is rushed.

I do believe that the author did a good job of telling the story in such a way that we got all of the information that was relevant. Do I feel like the story could have been expanded to make it longer absolutely. I thought that this was just going to be wrapped up in a nice little bow and everything would be done by the end of the book that is not the case if you’re not a fan of cliffhangers you will not be a fan of this book. But the second book is out so you can just automatically go and get the e-book or physical copy and read it for yourself. Let me tell you that is what I’m going to go do because this cliff hanger. It’s got me hungry I need to finish this duet. Am I sad that the audiobook for the second book is an out? That question is yes because as you guys know I do prefer audiobooks over all other forms. But we will be getting the e-book.

Magan‘s writing style is great. There’s a great ad in flow to her writing you can just sit down and get lost in this world. That’s what happened for me. When a book has the ability to take me away from my troubles are the stress from my day I know the author is doing their job. When the author is writing the dialogue because for me a story yes the setting and the descriptions are super nice but I’m very much dialogue focused. The author writes it in such a way that you feel like you’re part of that conversation. For me that’s what I look for I don’t want anything that feels forced or sounds weird to my ears. Does the Avenue and flow of natural conversation is what I like. And Magan gives me that in every single chapter. When it comes to the main character I absolutely love her she’s a single mom and I don’t read too many books about single moms and single dad’s. But I absolutely loved it so 10 out of 10 recommend this book to you.

Now when I first for the narrators name Hannah Baker. All I can hear in my head is welcome to your tape.

Anyway Miss Hannah baker is a new narrator to me as well. So we are getting a lot of firsts in this post. Hannah did such an amazing job and you guys know I’m very picky about my narrators. She had a really good range when it came to the voices. There weren’t too many because it was such a condensed time but for the characters that we did have it there was individual voices for each of them. Extra points for her pulling off little kids voices. She enunciate really well there were no other accents except a southern one and I thought she pulled it off really well it sounded truly authentic.

Since I’m not a sound engineer everything sounded good. I have no complaints they were new awkward pauses there was no background noise so all in all I think the engineers did a great.

Will you guys be checking out this book if you do leave me a comment to let me know? If you read this book what are you guys think about it leave me a comment?

Until next time

Happy reading

Audiobook Review – Marketville Mysteries Book Two

Audiobook Series Tour: Marketville Mysteries by Judy Penz Sheluk

Author: Judy Penz Sheluk

Narrator: Kelli Lindsay

Series: Marketville Mysteries, Book 2

Publisher: Judy Penz Sheluk

Released: Apr. 8, 2019

Genre: Mystery

Sometimes the past reaches out to the present. It’s been 13 months since Calamity (Callie) Barnstable inherited a house in Marketville under the condition that she search for the person who murdered her mother 30 years earlier. She solves the mystery, but what’s next? Unemployment? Another nine-to-five job in Toronto?

Callie decides to set down roots in Marketville, take the skills and knowledge she acquired over the past year, and start her own business: Past & Present Investigations.

It’s not long before Callie and her new business partner, best friend Chantelle Marchand, get their first client: a woman who wants to find out everything she can about her grandmother, Anneliese Prei, and how she came to a “bad end” in 1956. It sounds like a perfect first assignment. Except for one thing: Anneliese’s past winds its way into Callie’s present, and not in a manner anyone – least of all Callie – could have predicted.

Judy does not disappoint. Callie is on a whole new adventure. One thing I love about this author is that you don’t get bored reading or listening to her books. She weaves a tale that you finish her books in one sitting. It takes a true artist to be able to do that. 

Now for this book there was new voice actress Kelli Lindsay. I believe Kelli is a new a voice actress to me. She as amazing. She really brings the story to life. Also, I love the way she spells her name. It’s my favorite way of spelling it. Kelli has a voice for every character. Range is something I look for when listening to a new actor or actress if the have a weak range then I most of time I DNF the book. Kelli did not disappoint. 

The whole production was amazing. There was not any background noise or weird pauses.

Narrator Bio

Claira Jordyn is an on-camera and voice over actress based in New York City. She can most recently be heard on a variety of television and radio commercials encouraging you to ski in Colorado, shop at Old Navy and also to try a particularly popular makeup brand this holiday season. She can also be heard reading countless books including Opaque, The Endless Horizons Sagas and an upcoming retelling of children’s fairytales. She lives just north of New York with her husband and super mutt Junebug, loves telling stories for a living and is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to do that every day.

Hello Wonderlandians long time no talk. I am back I know I need to be more active on this blog so will start with this review. So let’s jump into this. It Iowa’s very excited when I was able to receive and review this book. This author is new to me and I’m always on the hunt for new authors. Judy’s story was an absolute delight to read it. Mystery isn’t typically my thing but I pretty much listened to the entire audiobook in one sitting. Judy’s writing is very fluid. If that makes sense. This amazing mystery grabs you and takes you on a really cool ride. Trust me when I say I was not able to put this book down. Since it’s a mystery I don’t want to give too much away. I will leave you with it is definitely a must read. Now let’s talk about the narrator.

Claira Jordyn is a new voice actress to me. She was such a delight to listen to she really brought the characters alive. I will say though I did amp up the listening speed to about x 2.50 I do find that for me this was a good speed to listen to. Miss Jordyn does read a little slow for my liking but once I was able to speed it up I find that her voice really is very nice to listen to. I liked her range of voices. She annunciated each word to where I was able to understand. You guys know I have a thing about females doing male voices and males doing female voices I think she did an amazing job with switching over to a male character. There was one person who had an accent that I can remember and it was a British accent and I think the voice actress did an amazing job. It did sound very authentic and realistic.

Now let’s talk about the overall production of the audiobook itself. In the beginning there were a few areas where I could hear the narrator take like a breath of air or I could hear her swallowing. Other times there was a bit of a background noise. But I wouldn’t say that it was anything too bad to where it made me wanna stop listening to the audiobook. It honestly was like maybe three seconds and then it was gone. So other than that little blip I thought the production was really well professionally done. The sound mixing was great. I was very overall happy.

 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Judy Penz Sheluk. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Author Judy Penz Sheluk
  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format? I believes it completely depends on choosing the right narrator. I have a collection of three short mystery stories that comes in at about an hour. Kate Tyler narrates that and she does a great job, absolutely nails it. But as much as I enjoyed working with her—she’s a complete pro—and loved her narration of Live Free or Tri, she didn’t have the right voice for Calamity (Callie) Barnstable, the protagonist in my Marketville mystery series. Find the right narrator, and any book will be a good fit for audio. After all, just like traditional readers, audiobook listeners have a variety of interests.
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing? Not initially, no, in fact, when I first started writing I never thought any of my books would end up on audio. However, when we were recording (narrator Kelli Lindsay) A Hole in One, book 2 in my Glass Dolphin mystery series, Kelli pronounced Graham Gilroy as “Gram Gilroy.” I’m from Canada (Toronto area) and here Gram is short for Grandma…we say Gray-ham. I consulted with fellow members of Sisters in Crime and discovered this is very much a regional thing. Some parts of the U.S. say Gray-ham, and others, like California, say Gram. Because the book is set in Canada, Kelli switched to the Canadian pronunciation.
    • Fast forward to writing A Fool’s Journey, book 3 in my Marketville mystery series, and I have my protagonist, Callie, entering a foyer. Now, in Canada we say Foy-eh, but I know from watching house hunting shows set in the U.S. that Americans say Foy-ur. To avoid another Gram/Gray-ham situation, I switched it to “Callie entered the front hallway.”
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing? All of my books are loosely inspired by real life events, emphasis on the loosely. The idea for Skeletons in the Attic came to me while I waited with my husband, Mike, in our lawyer’s office in Newmarket, Ontario. We were there to update our wills, and our lawyer’s goldendoodle kept us company while our lawyer was detained at court. The opening scenes of the book are culled directly from that experience: While Mike spent the time reading back issues of Bicycling Magazine, I started thinking… “What if I was here, not to update my will, but to inherit…what if there were strings attached…what if I inherited something I had no idea had existed…what if that something was a house in a small town called…Marketville.” I started scribbling notes down (I always keep a notebook and pen in my purse) and by the time our lawyer arrived I had finished chapter 1.
    • In the case of Past & Present, the inspiration came from a train case found at the back of my late mother’s clothes closet. I’d never seen the documents inside—her immigration papers from 1952, an old passport, her mother’s death certificate, among other things—made me want to delve into a past she’d pretty much kept to herself. Before long, that research became Callie’s research. The book is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Anneliese Penz, and there is a character in the book named Anneliese Prei, who was murdered in 1956 in Toronto, after immigrating to Canada in 1952. Prei was my mother’s (my grandmother’s) maiden name, something I learned for the first time from the death certificate in that train case. A personal aside: Skeletons in the Attic was the last book my mother read.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?Burn-out is what I felt working in a 9-5 corporate world, mostly in management positions. In 2003, I walked away from that life and started to work as a freelance journalist, which eventually led to Senior Editing positions for several different magazines. In 2012, I went to a writing conference as a reader and came away knowing I had to write a book; the result was The Hanged Man’s Noose (published July 2015 in print/ebook and in Nov. 2017 in audio). My writing journey hasn’t always been easy, but I’ve never looked back. There’s something magical about creating a world, living in it for weeks and months, and knowing when to write THE END. By the time I do that, I’ve already got an idea or two for another book.
  • If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles? I’ve been told that this series would adapt well to film, so I love this question. In Skeletons in the Attic, Callie is 36, so perhaps Evangaline Lilly, who is also Canadian. Kate Hudson would make a great Chantelle Marchand, Callie’s best friend and, in Past & Present, her business partner. But wouldn’t it be fun if the role of Callie became a breakout for an actress hoping for the perfect part. Let’s put that thought out there in the universe: The Marketville Mystery Movie Series. I do like the sound of that!
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?There’s an old saying: You can’t judge a book by its cover. You also can’t judge a person because they choose to listen to a book, for whatever reason, instead of reading it. Even when it comes to “real reading” people have different preferences: hardcover, large print, paperback, e-book…as an author, I’m delighted if someone enjoys what I’ve written, regardless of format.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series? I’ve written two series (Marketville and Glass Dolphin mysteries), and zero standalones, though I am working on a standalone. The pros of a series is you create a world and then keep adding to it, so it becomes familiar, not just to the author, but to the reader. The cons are exactly the same: it becomes familiar, meaning the author must allow the characters to grow and age. A standalone can be freeing…everything is shiny and new and you don’t have to worry if your character suddenly does something completey out of character (in the way you would with a series) because no one really “knows” that character yet. The con is that from a marketing perspective, there’s no one following the series, or waiting for the next book in the series. Because there is no expectation, it’s easy to put the project aside for another day.
  • What’s your favorite:Food: cheese pizza, but any non-meat topping pizza will make me smile
    • Song: Bulletproof by Jim Cuddy
    • Book: Emily Climbs by L.M. Montgomery, which I first read as a young girl, and is one of the few books I’ve read more than once.
    • Television show: Gilmore Girls
    • Movie: The Sting (tied for second, Primal Fear and The First Wives Club)
    • Band: Blue Rodeo
    • Sports team: Toronto Maple Leafs though I’ve recently hopped on the Raptors bandwagon
    • City: Toronto
  • Are any of those things referenced in appearance in your work? Callie loves pizza, though she orders it with hot peppers and extra sauce. I mention Blue Rodeo and Jim Cuddy in my Glass Dolphin series. And there’s a scene in A Hole in One, book 2 in my Glass Dolphin series, where Arabella recites lines from The Sting. That’s an old movie, but it holds up. If it was re-released, as is, it would still be a runaway hit. Great cast, great writing.
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?I always answer this question with a quote from Agatha Christie: “There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don’t want to, don’t much like what you’re writing, and aren’t writing particularly well.”

Tossing aside centuries of tradition for something real, she takes Roman’s calloused hand and braces for the backlash.

Aven really knows how to tell a great story. I am absolutely loving this modern and day or royalty. It is taking the British monarchy and completely changing what we know about it. If the British Royal monarchy were ever going to take on a modern role in the world and let go of some of their traditions I would definitely hope that this will be the path that they’d take. It’s so fun reading these books. I’m really hoping that there is going to be more a. Out with I like a book about Prince Xander. The out there makes you wanna live in her world. Her writing is so pretty you just feel good while reading these books. 

The narrator I really enjoyed. Andrea does an amazing job. Her British accent for this a specific character Elizabeth was really nice to listen to. I will say though a where voices for males can be a little distracting and take you out of the story just a little bit but her fellow is really nice and you get sucked right back in period it on the fact that she was born in Hollywood of Florida and can pull off a British accent that while is amazing. There are just some narrators who can’t really pull off accents but she does it flawlessly.

The production and sound on this book were great!

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Aven Ellis. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Top 10 List

Aven Ellis’ Top Ten Literary inspirations
  1. Sophie Kinsella. The moment I started reading Confessions of a Shopaholic, I felt as though I had never read anything like it before. It was so funny, so vivid, so bright. I knew instantly that these where the kind of stories I wanted to write-ones with humor and heart. And that began my path toward becoming a romantic comedy writer.
  2. Georgette Heyer. I absolutely love her regency romances, in particular Sylvester and The Grand Sophy, which had me laughing out loud. Absolutely brilliant writing.
  3. Jane Austen. The way she weaves together a story is masterful. These are re-reads for me.
  4. JK Rowling. The fact that she had such strength and perseverance to follow her writing dream is truly inspiring.
  5. Maeve Binchy. She wrote the most beautiful descriptions and stories with so many layers.
  6. Julia Child. Her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking is a masterpiece. When you read her book My Life In France, you see what a monumental undertaking it was to write that cookbook and in this book, you feel like you are on the journey. I absolutely love both of them.
  7. Julia Quinn. Her Bridgerton series is a master class in laying out a series. How the plots are so thought out, so interwoven to lead to the next book, is brilliant.
  8. Margaret Mitchell. Gone with the Wind, need I say more? I love the way her plotting kept me turning the page.
  9. Helen Fielding. Bridget Jones’s Diary is humor at it’s best. She is another comedic inspiration for me.
  10. Emma MCLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, The Nanny Diaries. I still remember parts of this book, which made me laugh and made me sad. Most of all, I remember feeling it was totally unique and I loved that about their writing style.
