Reading the description for this book it didn't scream dirty novel to me at all, I was also surprised that none of the reviews I read mentioned it. Because that's what it was, 10 hours of sex. Now now don't get me wrong, I'm the farthest thing from a prude as one can be and I actually loved it for the first 2 maybe even 3 hours. But then I just kept waiting for a storyline or something to change. It did not. It was about sex all the way up to the end of it. I'll add also that I liked listening to Sebastian more than Grace. It has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a woman, he just read better. He read with more emotion and he took his time with it. Grace read as though she were in a hurry and it was pretty monotonous. Had I expected this book to be a dirty novel I don't suppose I would have been as disappointed. Hope this helps!
I can't stop listening to this one and stopped counting how many times I listened to it. Love the story of Will and Hannah. Hope there is a movie coming out of this writing soon ..

The author is a competent writer, but a mediocre story-teller. We've all been infatuated, but few of us have had our infatuation returned with such fervor. And that's what this book is all about: two infatuated, beautiful people who can't wait to pleasure each other, which sparks one sex scene after another, all strung together without any real storyline. They're both supposedly intelligent scientists, but we don't get even a glimpse of their daily lives. We only hear that they can't concentrate on work because they're so obsessed with each other. They run together, they miscommunicate, they titillate and bang each other. After the first few sexual encounters I found it tedious, repetitive and exhausting. These characters are so obsessed (self-obsessed and obsessed with each other) that they can't seem to have a normal conversation without ripping off each other's clothes. It becomes tiresome. At the beginning I was interested to get to know the characters. By the end, I didn't feel I'd learned anything about them, except that they're horny and never satiated. Which made them characters I didn't really care about.

I've been loving this whole series and this book was no exception. It may be the best one yet. Definitely one I'll listen to over and over. The narrators are top notch. The story is a great mixture of funny and sexy.
Probably not, the sex talk was so stilted it made me gag. I tried hard to listen to all of this book but just couldn't stand it.
It was ok considering what they had to work with.
Every one in the first half, that is all I could stomach.
If you liked 50 Shades of Grey, you'll like this book. It's not what I was expecting, but I can't fault the author for that. The overall story is a bit loose around the edges, but the writer is capable. It gets a bit redundant after a while, but it certainly remains steamy.
I have read thousands of romance novels - I mean a lot! And this book is my new favorite. I liked it so much that as soon as I finished the first listen, I turned around and started the book over to listen a second time. The plot itself is not unique or much different from other romance novels, rather it's the dialog. I was outright laughing and chuckling at times. Plus, the author didn't dumb-down the story. Both main characters are smart and educated with masters degrees - and the dialog and writing reflect this. The sex scenes are spectacular and each encounter is different! But what made this listen so incredible were the narrators. They took the words and brought the characters to life. Hands down the best listen ever. I loved it. I hope you do too.
