The story is actually more like a 2.68 for me, but that's not an option. So I rounded up. I was hoping for a Lora Leigh-like type of erotic book. And this story is more erotica than romance too. But it's more hardcore than I like. Meaning, sexual pleasure is based largely on giving and accepting physical pain. And, though I don't have a problem with that sexual taste, it's just not what I like to listen to. But if it's up your alley, then this story is for you. The story was not just junk used to make room for sex acts; the story was ok on its own. It passed the fast-forward test (fast-forwarding just to get through the book and not thinking I'm missing anything) until the last 2 hours or so of the story, which is not bad. Lastly, the story is believable, which is always a plus. No problems with the narrator at all.
Oh MY!!!! I have read and listened to over 200 romance and dark romance/erotica novels. I have NEVER came across one that shocked me or made me feel like it was even close to going too far. I've listened to Captive in the Dark and it didn't shock me like this book. I LOVED this novel. But be warned it is not for those mildly interested in BDSM books, This one is intense and on the verge of being too much, which is PERFECT for me but not for everyone. I am absolutely taken by this series and love the characters. The characters are so well written you feel like you could be right there in the story. Worth a credit? absoFREAKINGlutely!!! Worth spending 20.00$ to buy if you don't have a credit? OH YEA!!!

While I can't pretend to understand the dom/sub lifestyle, I have totally enjoyed some of Maya's Banks books for the engrossing characters she creates. However, some of the scenes in Sweet Temptation were just horrific; it's not okay to treat another person worse than an animal. One minute the characters, an extended group of close friends who consider themselves family, are humorous and caring. Next minute a supposedly caring man tells his friends to inflict as much pain as possible on a woman who loves him. Not cool!!!
Yes. Touching story of how we can truly miss for the forest for the trees. We can be so caught up in our own world of pain and problems of the past we can miss the opportunity of the future.
The display of unconditional love Angel demonstrated towards Micah trusting him with it.
She did an overall good job
No. Just proud of Micah in the end.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
The sex scenes were very hot - although I'm not sure about the whole BDSM pain=love business. Although I suppose that is why it is fiction/fantasy....the stalker/Angelina story was really well done.
Without giving anything away, the end was very dramatic - especially as Angelina weighs her decisions, makes up her mind and Micah's reaction.
Yes, I've no complaints-she is fabulous!
Adult themes and language, NOT a soft, feel good romance. My favorite of the Sweet Series...each can stand alone but best read in order.
