Make sure you read/audio Tempted before you read this one. It gives you another great read and some really good background on Alex. I read this first and was a little lost towards the end since I was not aware of some details about Alex. Both books are well written and the narration was done very well. I really enjoyed the book!
Alex - like gooney caramel on ice cream!
Her voice changes are nice and subtle, not forced and harsh.
I was hoping and waiting for Alex's story after, he was left out alone in Tempted. I loved it! it was well written, passionate, touching, everything a book should be and the narrater was excellent. Highly recommended!!
Much better than the last couple of MH novels. As usual, she has no boundaries when it comes to her sexual content, but this story was about so much more than that. Good character development and an interesting plot made this a book I had a hard time putting down.
This was only my second audio book. After the 1st, I was so disappointed; I really couldn't get what all the fuss was about with this craze. The story was good, but the narration killed it for me. I figured my reading and my imagination were a lot better. I wanted to try one more though, so I went with another author I liked a lot in print. I have read several Megan Hart books, but this audio book has made me a believer in this form. Not only is this the best Megan Hart book out there for me so far, the narration actually ADDED to the experience. I have not been able to put this down, taking my iPod everywhere with me, even when I really shouldn't. I kept sensing the story was going one way, and then it would surprise me again. What an old-fashioned loved story with some unexpected nuggets. LOVED IT!
Not sure why, but her books always seem to stall me out. I've never finished one. Maybe they're too real.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I should have listened to Tempted again before listening to this story. This listen was just ok for me. There was a lot of history that needed to come out...too many unanswered questions. This story was mainly just sex....The ending was beginning to get a little interesting and then it was over. The narration was ok.
I liked the way the narrator changed the sound of each voice. The storyline kept my attention.
When Alex first made love to Olivia.
No, I haven't, but I do plan to. She made the story come to life.
No, but only because of the length of it. It was difficult deciding. where to stop, but very easy to start up again without feeling lost. I like that.
I would highly recommend this book. There is some reference to homosexuals, but nothing that graphic. Very tastefully done.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
It was really intense and not in a way that will have me reading it again soon (this was my second reading of it. I really like Megan Hart's Dirty, Stranger and The Space Between Us.
No strings. No regrets. And no going back....
"I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark, and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed.
But I can't give my heart to a man who's so...unconventional. His last sexual relationship was with a married couple. It's enough that my ex-fiancee preferred men; I can't take that chance again, no matter how much my body thrives on Alex's touch. I can't risk it, but I can't resist it, either.
"Alex can be very convincing when he wants something. And he wants me."
Yes to the Megan Hart fan...but be prepared to go to some really deep, uncomfortable places with Olivia - and hardly anywhere with Alex and the other characters. There is really too much material to be adequately explored.
This IS the follow up to Tempted which I did not realize until the end.
Yes, she also did several in The Kowalski Family Series [Shannon Stacey] and she is a solid, unique performer.
Toward the end I was actually a bit put off by the amount of 'rough' language and how quickly all these complex issues were tied up.
NOTE: Strong language and descriptions of sex.
Anti-climatic? I mean it was a good ending but I prefer endings that give you more of a look into a HEA. It was probably a more realistic ending though so I guess I can't complain too much.
The book definitely took a different direction from what I expected based upon its description. It was good but oddly "deep". I thought the focus of the book would be on the romance but it was more so about the main character coming to terms with certain aspects of herself and her life.
Loved it! I was so happy when I saw the summary to know I could continue listening and hear what happened to Alex Kennedy after the 'Tempted' story ended. Some questions answered while others are raised. Very fulfilling. Olivia is a great character, I can relate to her on a level that makes it a great read. Megan Hart has turned me into a fan of this Genre of book.
