I like sexy erotica with a good storyline. Fantasy or sci-fi or just something that captures my attention right away.
The Cajun accents were the first thing that was different about this story that immediately captured my attention. This narrator was excellent. AND the storyline was excellent! The lead man was so seductive and non-repentant. The back & forth feelings that both characters struggled with and thought they were sure about only to change with a new perspective.....I automatically bought her second book in this series.
OK, I'm writing this review after listening to the second book. Second book is better to me. This book was good. A change. Got the second book after reading the review. I would suggest getting the series. Just love these Alpha males. The narrator is great making the book come alive. Hat's off to the narrator.
I have not read the book, but I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.
It had a good plot that had a bit of a surprise ending. But the sex scenes, Wow! The narrator did an excellent job.
I have to say Jack was my favorite character. Lexi did a wonderful job on all of the characters.
If you don't like detailed sex scenes, this is not the book for you.
The majority of this book is internal dialogue, angst, confusion, etc., etc. There is steaminess thrown in as well, but I found myself wanting to fast forward through all the worrying and get to some story.
Author of more than 50 novels. I read mostly romances and love adult romance erotica and historical romances set in the 1870 1880 west.
If it moved faster. There is way too much character introspection. They think and think and repeat and repeat until I wanted to scream, Just do it!!! The sex scenes were okay, but not worth the build up. I also thought the hero filming them having sex and using that to exact revenge on someone was inexcusable.
I'm listening to one of my novels next.
The performance was good. I wasn't crazy about the Creole accent, but it was passable.
If you like the kind of book with a female character that goes back and forth with I never want you to touch me - why aren't you touching me, I never want to see you again - why did you leave me, I want this exact fantasy - why did you think I wanted that, you might like this. Drives me crazy, and makes the female character too stupid. This type of relationship is all rules, regulations, dress codes, commands and punishment, and ALL that talking. And safe words - like these people don't understand no, stop, and I don't like that. The story line is a small part of the book, the rest is the female character saying don't touch me - have sex, I don't like this - have sex, never touch me again - have sex, I'm leaving - have sex. Talk about mixed messages.
Eh. I had wanted to read something with serious hotness in it, and while this book did eventually deliver on that score, you have to wade through a LOT of angst from the main character, which is both boring to listen to and a mood killer. It was basically like Twilight but with sex.
This was my first book by her, and it may be my last. Since these books are for grown-ups, treat the readers as such and don't spend so much time trying to convince us through the main character that the DS lifestyle is ok. Girl, if we're reading these books, we don't need convincing. Just tell the story already!
I guess. Since I found a lot of scenes drawn out by unnecessary inner dialogue, it's hard for me to say whether the narrator dragged things out, or if she was just doing a faithful job of telling the story.
Yeah, I wish it had been that good.
This book could have been SO good if so much time hadn't been spent discussing why kinky sex is ok. I really wish the author had skipped the scaredy cat routine and just gone for it. Every time the action started to get good, the author dumped a preverbial bucket of cold water on you by having the girl waffle about her actions. This is an adult erotic novel, not a YA romance. Knock it off already!
Wicked Ties was a great story that kept me involved in the characters. The writing is SO hot! I have read a few other books in this category, but this one was the hottest. Although I did enjoy the story and didn't find it too cheesy, there were a couple things that I found annoying, which is why the story only received 4 stars instead of 5. But, they were minor in the whole realm of things. If you want a steamy book that you can get lost in, you will not be disappointed.
The narrator is very talented and great at creating individual characters but she couldn’t save this book.The story was quite a disappointment. There is very little in way of a plot in this book. The story is loosely tied together in order to create scenarios for all the formulaic sex scenes. The lead character is wishy-washy in her thoughts and the pacing of the story is distractingly unrealistic.I knew what type of book I was buying when I made my selection. However, I had hoped it would at least have a well thought out plot and a somewhat realistic relationship to base the steamy sex scenes. I did not finish is this book.
I loved the mystery of who the stalker really was.
Jack. He really fell hard for Morgan and wanted her to be his.
I thought she did a very good job in voicing all the characters.
When Jack tell Morgan that he loves her.
The sex was hot and the plot was strong.
