I enjoy unpredictable stories, and this was that.
At first it was Zach, but Nora easily made the story enjoyable.
I like how each character was distinguishable. He also managed to bring their personalities out.

I enjoyed the premise of this book immensely. It was a fun read and one that I found myself looking forward to. It is certainly more realistic than the Grey series and treats the "Scene" with more insight and understanding than most other mainstream books. No one seemed to try to "cure" anyone of their disease.
The characters were pleasing and believable, except for the seemingly general acceptance of the main character's behavior. I could visualize the characters and scenes in my head and found their descriptions quite plausible.
Aeron James narration was suberb and really brought the story to life. I would recommend this to anyone in the lifestyle and even quite a few who aren't familiar!
I only got about an hour into it, but it was such a slow start...maybe it could have gotten good, but it was just taking too much time. And the plot was weird, I couldn't decide who was the woman's love interest, her very young room-mate (creepy) or the snobby, uptight editor---which could have been good, but come on get to it!
Maybe just a traditional period romance.
I'm not a big fan of male narrators for romance so maybe a woman narrator.
The roommate guy....he was unrealistic...and I hated his voice
Yes, I am addict... I love books, I read and listen and just can't get enough. I do not like non fiction because it is too much like learning and I would rather dive in and be transported to a new world or adventure!
I have recommended this to my friends because it keeps you so engrossed. There is a lot of love in this book, twisted love but love all the same. Nora is a spit fire and I love her attitude, what a woman.
I love the Narrator in this book did the voices and feelings great, wish all the series used the same person.
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!!!
Tiffany your a Genius! This book was heart wenching and funny and well GREATNESS! I really have on complaints. I cried and laughed.The heart doesnt lie. You love who u love and there are all kinds of love and this book show that in so many ways. My heart is sad for Westly but Nora loved him so much she had to let him go. I think that she did the best thing for him. The book was beautful in so many ways. I highly recommand this book for anyone. It is an adult book and not for the faint of heart so be perpard, but when I read this book all I could see was love. Nora is one of the funniest caracter I have read in a while. She is sarcastic and devilishly witty! Can I get if her wicked tongue... please!!
Defintly read this book you will come out w/ a breath of fresh air!
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 would highly recommend this book. The content was very realistic, the characters were captivating. I was so emotionally involved in this story I don't know whether to be happy or sad for Nora, Wes or Zach. It could have ended many different ways...was this a happy ending? I don't know, I hope to find out in #2 and #3 to see how everyone survives.
I loved Nora....she is strong, funny and confident on the outside and loving, giving and an emotional mess on the inside. I hope things go better for her in the future.
I loved his narration and sorry to hear he is not narrating the rest of the series. I think he was supposed to be the voice of Zach...if Zach is not in the rest of the series I can see why they changed. There are very few narrators I have not grown to love as the story progresses, so we will see.
Who wins the consolation prize?
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
I probably would not buy this book as it is more about degradation and darker, more disturbing themes than I like.
I guess Zachary - as he [like me] was trying to figure out what was going on.

Not at all romantic, very hard core Domination with little detail.
Yes! I never listen to books twice but I really would listen to The Siren again. There are so many stories in this book, and knowing how the each end up would make it better to catch the little details of them throughout. Plus I fell in love with Nora's character. There is so much you never get to find out about her that leaves you wanting more yet still grateful for what you do know.
Nora. So complex and strong and mature yet at the same time young and fragile and carefree and immature. I just fell in love with her. And while I still don't understand why she needs what she needs from Soren, I trust that she does.
When Zach comes to the church to have her unlock his handcuff and she shares Soren's point of view on all of the religious art with him. Being Catholic, it was very thought provoking. This whole book was so intelligent - far beyond your standard romance / erotica books.
Very impressed. It would impossible for this book to be "this" book without all of the explicit erotica, but the story and the clever, intelligent writing elevate it far beyond your typical erotica / romance reads. It isn't for everyone but I found it to be smply stunning.
It is a story about love, friendship, faith and about discovering your deepest desires and how to deal with them.
This book ranks in the top 5 of the BDSM books I've listened to so far.
There's alot of memorable moments
This was the first book I've listened to where a guy read it. He did a great job wit all the accents for each character. My fav has to b Nora wit her attitude n who she is. My 2nd fav is Wes n his southern accent.
