Joint Review: All or Nothing at All by Jennifer Probst

Joint Review: All or Nothing at All by Jennifer Probst

Posted July 26, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 4 Comments

        I’ve really enjoyed Jennifer Probst’s Billionaire Builders. Each Pierce brother’s story is better than the last and All or Nothing at All is the best book in the series. I read it in one sitting! I rarely do that but Sydney and Tristan’s story grabbed me by the heart and I could not put it down! I love a contemporary romances that features a hero/heroine getting their long time crush or a second chance romance and All or Nothing at All has both! Sydney and Tristan grew up together but there was a 4 year age difference with him being older. Sydney’s crush on Tristan grew to love over the years but he wasn’t ready for the same level of emotions once they finally acted […]


White Hot by Ilona Andrews

White Hot by Ilona Andrews

Posted July 15, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 3 Comments

read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short The same reasons that made Burn for Me great (Ilona Andrews wrote it, Great Characters and Renée Raudman narrated it) are true for White Hot. White Hot picks up a couple of months after Burn for Me. The larger plot thread continues and as all Andrews’ series, the characters and plot become more complex. While the danger for now is wrapped up by the end of the novel the overall series danger is still there waiting for Nevada and Rogan. The budding romance between the hero and heroine grows as well. If you have not tried an Ilona Andrews novel I would recommend the Hidden Legacy series […]


Narrator Interview with Jo Raylan + Giveaway

Narrator Interview with Jo Raylan + Giveaway

Posted June 30, 2017 by Jennifer in Giveaway, Narrator Interviews | 2 Comments

  Last but not least! What a way to close out Audiobook Month, welcome Jo Raylan to The Book Nympho!   Can you walk us through your prep work for a narration project? Do you prepare any notes to help decide the tone and voice to give a character when there’s not a clear description of their voice in the novel (when they do not have a distinct accent)?   I’ll just confess that I don’t take notes – NOT that newer narrators shouldn’t, or that there isn’t value in the process. It’s just not how I internalize or work with the characters – or really anything I do (made college a tag challenging, heh…). Really, I just hear them in my head as I […]


Shuttergirl by C.D. Reiss

Shuttergirl by C.D. Reiss

                C.D. Reiss is my go to author for dark and complicated romances. Jo Raylan is a go to narrator for sexy and emotional deliveries. When these two ladies work on a book together its pure magic! Shuttergirl is a story about a girl and a guy with a high school history. The usual class separation romance. She (Lane) a girl who bounced between foster homes and he (Michael) a popular and rich guy with famous actors for parents. Fast forward a few years and she is taking his picture. He grew up to be an actor and she a paparazzi. Lane is use to being the one behind the camera, not the one in front of it. At least […]

Lauren Blakely is my go to for fun and sexy romances with great characters. The Knocked Up Plan is classic Blakely with a twist. She’s done the fake engagement before where the friends end up together. Now she’s taking a baby plot and added her own style to it. Co-workers Nicole and Ryder have a great friendship where they are both on air radio personalities that talk about sex, love and relationships. They both have hang-ups about the love part. He doesn’t believe in it anymore after his marriage ended after his wife cheated on him. She thinks she is broken and will never have love in the romantic sense. Nicole wants the white picket fence but she doesn’t need or want the prince Charming […]


Lexxie’s First Time . . . with Audiobooks

Lexxie’s First Time . . . with Audiobooks

Posted June 22, 2017 by Jennifer in Blogger Guest Post, JIAM | 10 Comments

  Lexxie from (un) Conventional Bookviews walks us through her first time . . . with audiobooks When I listened to my very first audiobook, after reading my fellow bloggers amazing reviews for all things audio (yes, I’m looking at you, Felicia @ Geeky Blogger, Melanie @ Hot Listens and Jennifer @ The Book Nympho), it was far from a success. I had picked one of my favorite books to start with, as I had a long flight across the Atlantic, all on my own, and I figured an audiobook would keep me company, right ? The book was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, narrated by Davina Porter. Her voice is very soothing, and the narration of Outlander a bit slow. And I think that I must […]

Welcome narrator Brittany Pressley! Can you walk us through your prep work for a narration project? Do you prepare any notes to help decide the tone and voice to give a character when there’s not a clear description of their voice in the novel (when they do not have a distinct accent)?   For every book I start by just reading.  Sounds pretty simple right:) However I immediately “hear” the book and I’m acting it out in my head.  I guess I’ve always done this (maybe everyone does?).  I know sometime actors will read through things flat without inflection just to absorb the content but I’m performing from the first sentence (at least in my head).  So if you were to see me sitting on […]


Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis

Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis

Posted June 21, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 3 Comments

  A tale of two romances that warms the heart Seeing  Lost and Found Sisters being labeled as chick-lit/women’s fiction (I hate both labels, seriously WTF does those even mean?!) by other reviewers had me scratching my head. Then I thought about the biggest difference between Lost and Found Sisters and other Shalvis titles I’ve read. The romance between the heroine and hero is not front and center. Don’t get me wrong, the romance it totally there, but the romance that develops between the two sisters is the main focus. Romance between sisters?! Yes the heroine falls in love with two people. One is a romantic love and the other is a love she develops for her new-found sister after loosing her other sister two years […]
