    For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies, never her own - until now.... Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything. Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book if you are not afraid of explicit content. I debate whether this is good or bad behavior for a woman but it is her choice and she can always say no.....


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Persuasion?

    No specific memorable moments but I enjoyed hearing about all the other characters this series is about.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I am not enjoying the narrator, but I am able to tolerate her. She speaks too fast and there is something about her tone that sounds fake.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    These books are toe curlers so beware....

    Néomi Laress, a famous ballerina from a past century, became a phantom the night she was murdered. Imbued with otherworldly powers but invisible to the living, she haunts her beloved home, scaring away trespassers - until she encounters a ruthless immortal even more terrifying than Néomi herself.

    Story

    Similar but different than others in the series. Still sexy hot as only Kresley Cole can dish out but unique in the addition of a new paranormal character. Characters from other stories continue to migrate in and out, either by mention or active participation in the story. I don't know how Petkoff keeps them all straight but he does a great job!

    If you liked The Professionals, this story is about brother #2, Max. This listen oozes sensuality like book #1 from beginning to end, very hot, steamy and sexy! The narrator, again, does a great job with realistic accents and emotion throughout, loved it! There is a third brother so I anticipate book #3!

Sating her great hunger, she discovers that she is now a vampire, the bloodthirsty creature of legend. She has no choice but to flee from her old life and travels across Texas. Her new hunger spurs her to leave a wake of death and blood behind her as she struggles with her new nature. All the while, her creator is watching.

    Story

    It was a once in a blue moon sale with a copyright of 2008 and I liked it! I liked it enough to continue on with the series! This to me is a cross between the Succubus series and Cat and Bones(Night Huntress). There are vampires..and they are the real deal, humans and one is a medium and a necromancer. There is love and romance...vampire style(yummy), fun and action as they try to kill their creator who just likes to have fun with them and then kill them.

    Entirely suited to one another, Jack and Samantha continue to explore their sultry, kink-drenched love affair. Jack, a dominant’s Dom, pushes Samantha’s boundaries, making Sam do things she’d never thought she wanted to — never believed she would. He takes her in public, on stage, punishes her with both sensory deprivation and erotic overload. And then he proves to her that all of those actions suit her to perfection. Costumes, erotic toys, role-playing, and a 24/7 BDSM-lifestyle fulfill Samantha’s dirtiest dreams.

    This is the third book in the submission series, the story of Jack and Sam. This series is not for the faint of heart! This is the real deal! This is real BDSM, not play acting! I have enjoyed this series and hope she continues it. I have grown used to the narrator and now like her rather bland, emotionless reading. The emotion comes from the actions of the characters. Good story...just beware!

    They were looking forward to a normal holiday - at least as "normal" as it gets for vampires Cat and Bones and their otherworldly friends and family. But their yuletide plans are shattered when a mysterious stranger shows up and reveals long-buried secrets that threaten to take a bite out of their holiday cheer - and lives.

    The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family's bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone. Captured by a Laird Haunted by his father's violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father's weakness is dead and beyond David's vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees. Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart? With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other; for only love can save them.

    This to me was just your ordinary Highland romance. There was nothing special or unique. There was little romance, no humor, no real storyline. There is much, much better out there. Skip this and it's sequels, I plan to.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    Wow, what a story, I loved it. I could not stop listening. I required a light and funny listen after finishing this. This is the story of a sociopath and the damage he causes to the women in his life. I loved the narration and the way the story was told. There is no HEA but in the end the good guys win, if you can call it that!

    Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

    I liked the story, it gets a little complicated at times. Vlad and Leila are on the road to try and find and kill Vlad's fiercest enemy. Great narration as usual by Tavia Gilbert. Cat and Bones are mentioned. One negative, you need to listen to the final Cat and Bones story before beginning this one. Overall good!
