    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades of Grey the most enjoyable?

    First let me say that I love erotic novels and this one did not disappoint. The writing is wonderful and Becca Battoe brought it all to life for me. I have already recommended the audio version to all my friends!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were well written and Christian is sooooooo sexy!


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I thought she was wonderful!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!....and then read the other 2 right after that!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a trilogy so you have to be prepared to read/listen to all three books, but I just loved this series!

    Marly's love for Cade has spanned her teenage years, and survived strong and intact into womanhood. Her fantasies and daydreams have sustained her, but she's no longer content with merely imagining the touch of his hands, the taste of his kiss. It's time to seduce the tough, sexy cowboy. She's heard the rumors for years, the tales of his sexual preferences. She's prepared herself to accept his desires. Prepared her body for his touch. But she wasn't prepared for the choice to come...

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cole...yum!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was almost robotic, like she was reading the story for the first time. Not enough emotion, flat and bland.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Lora Leigh! Great series!
    Narrating.....not that good.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    Make sure you read/audio Tempted before you read this one. It gives you another great read and some really good background on Alex. I read this first and was a little lost towards the end since I was not aware of some details about Alex. Both books are well written and the narration was done very well. I really enjoyed the book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Alex - like gooney caramel on ice cream!


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    Her voice changes are nice and subtle, not forced and harsh.
