G.R.I.T (girl raised in the South)
...for a narrator's voice, folks, I would have. It was so nauseatingly syrupy and I just don't even know what-all, I do not have words. If you are looking for smoking hot sex, sure, it's in here...a lot. Maybe that was my whole problem, I was looking for a more plausible plot and interesting characters to hook me and keep me. Alas, for me, the whole premise of the book (girl looking to lose her V-Card, goes to hot commando-type guy to ask if he will do the job for her) was just ridiculous. The whole book seemed to be a vehicle contrived for getting in as much sex in as possible, in every way possible without something so insignificant as the plot interfering. There was just nothing here to keep me hooked. I couldn't even get all the way through part one. Maybe I just didn't read the summary well enough or something, but this one definitely was not for me.

Yes, I'd highly recommend this book. Not only does it have hot sex scenes, it has well-rounded characters. I was able to identify with the situation and empathize with the characters' personal issues. It's not just erotica, it's erotica with a plot and believable story.
Not only did I want to listen to this in one sitting, I began the book again as soon as I'd finished it! Once was not enough.
I'd listened to the first book in this series, Wicked Ties, through my library's audio download service. Not only do I plan to purchase that book, I can't wait to pick up the rest of the series.
I've listened to the first 2 books in this series now and if you like VERY sexy love stories then this series is for you. While the first book is about Jack, this one is about Deke (his business partner) and I think I have to admit that I liked this one better. Ms. Black is very good at writing these stories and even putting parts of the 2 books together. I have found all of her characters to be interesting and believable. So far everyones fantasies are no different then most of us have had at one time or another, it's just most of us have never brought them to life. I guess that's one reason these books are so enjoyable.
Decadent ranks a TEN out of TEN. Shayla Black knows how to write a Romance/ Exotic novel. Her novels should win awards that how exoticly sexy her stories are.
Shayla Black writes some of the best sex scence that I have listen too by far. If your a fan of Romance/ Exotic Shayla Black books are a MUST read.
One series of books that would be in the same rarified catogory would be The Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
Lexi Maynard should win a Oscar for her performance.That how good she performed all of the charcaters in Decadent.
YES I wonted to listen to this book in one sitting. But I have a life so I could only listen while doing my daily exercise.
yes, very captivating, story moves along fast. Characters are interesting to follow
Tone and feelings
How love conquers all. Hot sex was great, too!!!
How Luc supported his cousin even though he didn't get what he wanted.
I liked the first book in the series better, but this one held its own.
The HOTNESS of it. Some of it made my mouth fly open.
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
This is a very interesting book. 2 guys one girl how does that work well u can find out in this book.... hot and steamy is how I would discribe the sex. Two boy toys who wouldnt have fun with that?!? I don't know that I really like the girl in this book or her story line but I love Deke and his story line so that is why I liked this book so much. Can't wait to read the next book in this series!!
This is my least favorite of the series. Deke was wonderful in the first book but I agree with other reviewers he was a little too tortured and tormented in this one. However his partner in crime cousin Luc is well worth admission. Kimber's character does not inspire much, shes smart and has a great background with Deke and Jessie her pop star but didn't really care much about her. Thought her scenes with Luc were hotter then with Deke. I know I would have done a lot less talking if I found myself between these two men.
No thank you. I like a dirty romace story, but this story was way over the top
The narrators voice was annoying
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
this is Dyke's story and introduces the next hero. Ms. Black uses the same M.O. she makes the secondary male hero, Luke, so sweet and hot. whoa!! So she again builds the want to get the next book. The reader is Ok for the female voice, but good for the the males voice. She has built up some experience and learned how to read at a good pace.
She needs to lose the little girl voice, awful. Thank goodness, she ues a different female voice for each of the stories in the series. The stories keep getting better with each new one. These readers who use an A.K.A make it difficult, but it gives a reader a chance to get better with a name change. this 2nd book is very good and I do not think you will be disappointed. Remember these are erotica and very stong language.
