Chloe Carmichael's life feels pretty sweet - she's both maid of honor and florist for her best friend's A-list wedding, things are getting serious with her boyfriend, and her flower shop is about to get a spread in a national magazine. But it all quickly turns sour whenever the best man, Bad Habit drummer A.J. Edwards, shows his face...his handsome, unforgettable face. A.J. is everything Chloe doesn't want: tattooed, selfish, and all-around bad news. So why can't she stop thinking about him?

I would’ve stopped listening to this book 30 seconds into it if it was for free but paid for it so finished. The voice of the women in it is so irritating you want to rip our own ears of not to listen to it. The supposed Russian man is just as crap, probably the same actor

Grieving over the loss of her family and feeling like her life is unraveling, Lindsey McDermott quits her job, gets a puppy, and retreats to her grandparents' home in the Texas Hill Country. She spends her solitary days walking childhood trails and reminiscing, trying to reconcile the conflict within her as she struggles with survivor's guilt. After the death of her husband, Hannah Larson needs a change. At the suggestion of her mother-in-law - and against her better judgment - she and her son Jack move to tiny Utopia and into her husband's grandmother's house.

I was surprise when listening to this book it became apparent that it is “Gay Fiction” I finished it and thought it was sweet for what it was but not really what I was expecting. Very descriptive with sex scene’s so not for someone looking for Heterosexual romance fiction but definitely for someone wanting to experience something alternative.

As jy depresief, jou eie polse wil sny en in die diepste donker kamer wil sit en jouself jammer kry lees die boek. Dit is die hartseerste, depresiewe boek wat Ek nog Na geluister het. As Ek nie vir die boek betaal het en gehoop het dit word beter het sou Ek nie Na die hele ding geluister het nie. Ek kan nie glo mense wil Na die soort boek luister nie aangesien jy tog lees om van die realiteit in die wereld wil ontsnap. Die boek het my laat voel asof Ek myself van n brug wil afgooi. 😢😢😢😢😢😢 Ek sal dit nie aanbeveel nie.

Some of it made me smile but most of it was a bit irritating. I finished the book because I paid for it but would rather have the time back I wasted listening to it.

Deon Meyer, die mees gewilde Afrikaanse spanningsverhaalskrywer, se nuwe roman is nou beskikbaar as luisterboek! Die laaste ding wat kaptein Bennie Griessel van die Valke nodig het, is moeilikheid. Want hy suip dalk al weer, hy lieg vir sy kollegas en sy AA-borg, en die intrek by Alexa Barnard was 'n fout. 'n Karnallie van 'n fout. Maar die gastehuis-bloedbad buite Franschhoek was die werk van 'n professionele laksman - drie slagoffers, drie perfekte kopskote.

erdie gewilde én bekroonde jeugroman, onlangs as film uitgereik, is nou ook beskikbaar as luisterboek.

Nou sit hy in die tronk, en haar ma, weens haar onvermoë om die situasie te verwerk, begin al hoe meer drink.
