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 had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    What did you love best about Tempted?

    I actually liked the friendship between James and Alex.


    What other book might you compare Tempted to and why?

    It's a love story between three....one too many. I don't know who should have left because after the sex they were all pretty miserable.


    Did Zoe Winslow do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I thought this narration was flat with lack of emotion...her sexy Alex voice was not very appealing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One too many?


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a bad story, it's just depressing, everyone loses in the end.

    CEO of Knight, Inc., Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice.

    Whew! What a steamy, sexy, erotic listen and I really liked the story but....the narrator sounded like the evil granny on SpongeBob Squarepants! If you can overlook this then you may enjoy. I haven't looked but I hope there is a different narrator for books 2 & 3 because I plan to continue on.

    In a gender reversal of Scheherazade in The Arabian Nights: Tales from a 1,001 Nights, Ottoman princess Esma Sultan seduces a different Christian lover each night, only to have him drowned in the morning. The Sultaness's true passion burns only for the Christian-born soldier charged with carrying out her brutal nightly death sentence: her drowning guard, Ivan Postivich.

    I did not learn one thing about the Ottoman Empire and it wasn't much of a romance either. The first 10 hours killed me and the last 8 minutes were fair! I am going to stick with authors I know when a sale pops up.

    His dark hair, bright eyes, and cocky grin look just the way I remembered. The last time I saw Bryan's Ferro's beautiful body, he was naked and shimmering with sweat. This time he's wearing a tux and a wicked smirk that makes my heart beat too fast. It's been so long since I've seen him, the moment feels supercharged. But, the words that fall out of his mouth aren't what I expect and shock me to the core.

    I said I wasn't going to buy these teasers but after The Proposition #1 I am hooked so don't buy it if you are revolting against the mini book like I was! It starts off slow, I was happy because my revolt was going to play out but by the end my earbuds were steaming! I can't help it I am an erotica junkie!

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

I love Cat and Bones and I love the narrator too, she makes these characters and it would not be the same without her. Plus...Cat and Bones have a great sex life!!!!

    Imagine The Story of O starring a Berkeley Ph.D. in comparative literature, who moonlights as a bike messenger, with a penchant for irony, self-analysis and as well as anal pleasures. Set in both San Francisco and the more chateau-friendly, Napa Valley, Weatherfield's deliciously decadent novel takes you on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, enticing "ponies", (people) preening for dressage competitions. Desire runs rampant in this story of uncompromising mastery.

    Story

    This story is the educating of a sex slave, not very romantic, but for Carrie who chose this life it was. I was enlightened and I really do wonder does this happen outside of books. The narration was fine, she had a very "husky" voice suited for sexual scenes and portrayed Carrie as intelligent, witty and well-spoken.
