Bake Believe AUDIO BOOK by Cori Cooper – Review by Kerry Baker

Bake Believe Audible Logo Unabridged Audio Book by Cori Cooper is a great YA book that really draws you in and makes you become invested in Cat. She is such a loveable character that brings the whole story to life.

Having read this book previously I was excited to listen to the audio book version. And while I still really enjoyed the story I did struggle with the narration a bit. I found it hard to connect with the person telling this story, hard to listen to their way of bringing it to life. Their style definitely suited this type of book which makes me think this is definitely a personal thing. and knowing how good this book is, it doesn’t take away from it being a 5* read.

Finders Reapers (New Orleans Nocturnes) AUDIO BOOK by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Lorralei Hoerner

Can I just say the more I listen to Author Carrie Pulkinen’s books the more I love them! This book is a fun, fantastic listen and with parts I laughed out loud. I loved the story between a Necromancer, Jasmine and Grim Reaper, Asher. When Asher leaves his door open by accident there is ghostly chaos. Jasmine loves Asher and eventually helps Asher to round up the ghosts. This fun rom com is just truly fantastic and the narrator is perfect!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Defined (The Cadence Duet Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by Dakota Willink – Review by S. Bittles

Defined (Cadence Duet: A Second Chance Romance Book 2)Defined by Dakota Willink
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is Book 2 in the Cadence Defined series, a novel about a second chance love story which picks up 17 years after the first book ends. Although there is a large time gap between novels, Willink maintains her characters personalities throughout their developing timelines.

I listened to the audio book and both narrators did an awesome job; great chemistry and performance! Having two narrators helped to keep events and conversations separated, as without words to follow it can get mixed up in your mind.

Willink has created a great developing plot, which is easy to follow if you haven’t read/listened to Book 1. Reading Book 1 will give you more insight to the characters past and how they were as young adults.

Be prepared that there are firm political views that arise, which were hard not to skip, but other than that Willink has delivered yet again!

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction AUDIO BOOK by C.L. Schneider – Review by S. Bittles

Chain Reaction (Nite Fire #2)Chain Reaction by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is Book 2 in the Nite Fire Series, and picks up right after the first book. I would consider this series as urban fantasy; it is action packed and has some tense drama.

I listened to the audio book and there were moments in the beginning where I had to play some chapters again as my mind kept wondering. I stuck it out and glad that I did, King did an excellent job with her narration.

Schneider does a great job of maintaining the flow and characters throughout the novels. Schneider writes with a balance of characters emotion and action, as well as great world building and developing plot.

Recommended series!

Nite Fire: Chain Reaction AUDIO BOOK by C.L. Schneider- Review by Lauren West

This was my first audio book and It was amazing. I was able to truly imagine everything and the narrators voice was amazing. Dahlia and Alex were great! The journey they were on was so clearly defined. Dahlia is a half dragon and a heroine at her finest. She is strong, intelligent, and determine. She is a fighter who has no intention of backing down. Together her and Alex are finding their common ground and working together to solve these unthinkable crimes. Bodies are mutating and dead bodies are dropping everywhere. Unheard of and unknown we watch these 2 navigate the dark magical realm and get the unexpected answers.

Defined (The Cadence Duet Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by Dakota Willink – Review by Kerry Baker

Cadence Defined Audio Book by Dakota Willink is the second book in the Cadence Duet. This book picks up 17 years after the events in book one and really does need to be read in order.

I enjoyed how well the author transitioned the characters from young adults into grown people which complex lives and needs. When I started this book it was easy to keep the two separate. It took no time at all to be drawn back into Cadence and Fitz. Their journey was still anything but easy and to see how everything had played out so far was great.

I loved how easy it was for the characters to connect again. That bond was so strong.

I have really enjoyed everything about this duet. It was well written and emotional. The characters were engaging and had a depth to them that you don’t always see.

This is a brilliant series that I would highly recommend.

Bake Believe AUDIO BOOK by Cori Cooper – Review by Bobbi Wagner

I enjoyed reading this book and was excited to pick up and listen to the audio.  I enjoyed how the narrator made the story fun and entertaining to listen to.  I also enjoyed how they brought the story to life with the different tones for each character.  This is a cute young adult story about Cat and what happens to her when a scheduling mix up places her in a culinary class. Her family has a secret and she is about to find out what it is.  I really enjoyed Cat’s character, she was fun  and I enjoyed her  growth throughout her mix up.   Great story to listen to and worth the audio pick up.  I highly recommend this audio.

Cadence Defined by Dakota Willink 

Narrated by Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber

Five Stars

 

Cadence Defined is the second book in the Cadence Duet by Dakota Willink. These books need to be listened to in order, and they are both hot listening. This is true love with twists and turns. I like that the books were 17 years apart and the growth of the characters was amazing. This author is definitely a one click for me and I look forward to whatever is coming next.

Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber did an excellent job with both books in this diet. They really brought the characters to life. I will also be watching for these two narrators in my upcoming audible listening pleasure.

Bake Believe AUDIO BOOK by Cori Cooper – Review by Heidi Schoolman

This story follows Cat, an 8th grader with a family secret. She inadvertently ends up in a culinary class. Cat’s family never bakes – never. So, when she does bake, something crazy happens! This story describes teens to a tee. The author did an amazing job with character descriptions and details. Bonus – there are even recipes in there!

Defined (The Cadence Duet Book Two) AUDIO BOOK by Dakota Willink – Review by Shelly Kittell

Cadence Defined Audiobook By Dakota Willink cover artCadence and Fitz were summer loves. Unfortunately he had other plans that didn’t inclue Cadence. He left her with a beautiful baby girl that he knows nothing about. With the help of her parents, Cadence has worked hard to raise her as a single mother and is now runner her own agency. Fitz is running a PR agency in DC and his father is still trying to run his life. Fitz is still pining for Cadence and has been for 17 years. He did marry in an arranged marriage. The only thing good to come out of it wa shis son Austin. You can only imagine the panic when Callie’s date to prom is Austin. Oh the drama kicks in. Cadence picks up on the resemblance then runs into Fitz and here comes trouble. His father’s threating him to run for the Senate to he get what he wants. What kind of person threatens a grandchild? I love the drama and conflict. I felt like I was listening toa poor version of Dynasty. Cadence is a very strong woman and her spirit is strong and fierce. I do wish it had been an ensemble read as some of the narration was a little lackluster. I would still highly recommend.

5 stars!
