Top neurosurgeon Samantha Thomson needs to get married fast and is tightlipped as to why. And with over $200,000 on offer to tie the knot, no questions asked, cash-strapped ER nurse Hayden Perez isn't about to demand answers. The deal is only for a year of marriage, but Hayden's going into it knowing it will be a nightmare. Sam is complicated, rude, kind of cold, and someone Hayden barely tolerates at work, let alone wants to marry. The hardest part is that Hayden has to convince everyone around them that they're madly in love and that racing down the aisle is all they've ever wanted.

the story was well written, the characters charming and the journey to romance never felt forced. the narrator's voice was a delight and I found myself smiling and laughing and hurting along with the characters. it might be one story I return to again later.

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors.... Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.

I felt like I just watched an entire movie through my ears. It was nail biting, jaw clenchingly good. The voice of Ripley was so good I couldn't tell the deference.
All the character actors, music and audio people should be congratulated on such an awesome job.
If you want an edge of your seat, heart pumping experience. Then this audible production is for you!

Reverse Transmission is a darkly comedic story that combines elements of science fiction and dystopian thrillers, centering on a murder spree involving a self-driving car. Jay, a starving artist, gets the only day job she’s qualified for: “driver” of a self-driving car at the rideshare company Awooga. The job turns from hilariously awkward to intensely frightening when the car runs over a pedestrian and manipulates Jay into disposing the body....

Danielle Stevens is Hollywood's "next big thing" in a long line of next big things. When she goes to Dallas to prepare for a role - shadowing Detective Harper Jeremiah - she's not only running from her fame...she's also running from a stalker. Harper Jeremiah wouldn't recognize a Hollywood actress even if she bumped into one on the street. But the perceived babysitting gig quickly turns into a protection detail as the threats against Dani escalate.

this story was another awesome addition to the saga and the writers knack for detail and ability to draw you into a vast world is outstanding. the narrator fryda wolff again has out done herself. her voice acting is so spot on and engaging you feel like you are right beside them in the adventure. hope to see alot more of these story from the mass effect games come to life through these books.
