    How can a virgin seeking happily ever after with a hot pop star who has a penchant for threesomes win her fantasy man? Kimber Edgington desperately needs a plan to convince Jesse McCall, who's been her friend and secret crush since they spent a summer together as teenagers, that they are meant for each other. But all the tabloid stories about his sexual escapades make her feel oh so inadequate.

    This book was smoldering. There wasn't a ton of 'romance' to it. The main male character was a bit too tortured for me. But the sex was... woah. I liked the previous book from this series too and I wish that the rest were available here. I'd buy them all.

    I can't come up with many words to tell you about this book. I've read romance since I was 13 and this may be the absolute best book I've ever experienced.

    If you're more into light romances or more into erotica, don't bother with this. It's not light and there's not much sex. It's a roller coaster, it's real and completely believable, it's harsh and painful and joyous.

    If that doesn't scare you off, I can't imagine you will feel sorry about getting this book.

    Story

    I so wish I'd read more reviews rather than just going forward with buying this book because it sounded interesting. The story is OK, but it references characters who develop in books from other series' and it's a bit hard to follow plus is spoiler-y because I'm reading some of the other series but haven't gotten through to some of the things this book gives away.

    However, the worst thing IN THE WORLD is the swallowing and wet goopy mouth sounds of the narrator. I'm halfway through the book and am so tired of hearing her smack her lips and swallow that I wish she was nearby so I could strangle her. I came to look and see if there's a kindle version of this book so I can finish reading it myself.

    Yuck.

    Story

    This book had great potential but the narration was just awful. The woman sounded like a robot being super careful to pronounce every single letter in a word. It was like she was either talking to a child or someone who didn't know english very well. I had it on 1.5x speed and her speech was still too slow. The man sounded more like a teenager than a 28 year old billionaire. I don't mean his voice, I mean the the character was portrayed. Anything remotely sexual brought out the high pitched 'I can't believe this girl wants to touch me there' type of voice that just was not alpha or masculine at all.

    Aside from the narration ruining the book for me, the story was decent. The conflict was different than others I've seen and I've read a lot of romance. I felt like there was a bit too much self doubt in each character and that they caused more problems then they needed to by simple lack of communication and listening to what each was really saying.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    I love, love, loved this book. I cannot come up with a single thing about this book that I disliked.

    It starts off somewhat touchily as we're dealing with a female character that is believed to be crazy. That's not a normal starting point for a romance novel.

    I did a lot of sad & sappy crying during this book. The fact that it sucked me in so thoroughly and brought out such strong emotions, to me, makes it even better. If you're not into the emotional read then maybe this isn't the best option for you. As emotional as it was though, it wasn't a heavy read at all.

    Story

    But I'm not happy with it at all at this point. I don't think it can be redeemed with only 2 hours left to go.

    I've really enjoyed the previous 3 books for the most part. My biggest problem with this series has been a couple of constants. First, 'typical' submissive women are portrayed as spineless, sniveling, doormats. The strong, sharp tongued, bratty women who wind up as submissives in the series are way more typical of submissives I know. Second, the insistence of the men in the series that the woman of their choosing is really a submissive and she just doesn't know it and if only the big strong Dom would come in and show them, they will (or should) jump straight into the lifestyle with no qualms. Not only is this incredibly unrealistic, but also chauvinistic and insulting.

    Having stated those two generalities, this book in particular has gone so far above and beyond the pushy Dom that it's moved into bullying. The woman only 'gives in to her submissive side' during sex and only after being pushed passed her 'no' point. Admittedly, she's written to really enjoy some of the aspects of submissiveness and she never uses her safe word. But, it's just too much for me and I've become frustrated to the point that I wish she'd kick him to the curb and find an actual caring, loving Dom who trusts her as much as she should trust him.

    I'll get off my soapbox now.

    But, still worth the read. This is a very erotic story, just like the previous 2. I like that the female character was strong but feminine. She was a bit too ... openly sexual(?) for me, but it makes for a good erotic story.

    The male character was just a bit too tortured and determined to resist a relationship all the while continuing to sleep with her. It smacked of objectification.

    Also, while I complain of her 'open sexuality', he takes it too far. Constantly thinking about how she must be sleeping with other people.

    If this review seems disjointed, it probably is. There was a lot of flip flopping and frustration and stringing along in the book. It was still good, but some of the more negative things could have been handled better.

    Story

    This is historical & paranormal and it's pretty good. The historical part only really distracts (at least for me) in the language used.

    I was very happy with the narrator's accent, but didn't like his female voices.

    The story its self is pretty good. There are things that made me stop and go ... wait... what? but those were easy enough to get past and just enjoy the overall storyline. I'm somewhat concerned about where future books in this series might go. They've set up a very powerful 'bad guy' and if they don't get the 'good guys' up to speed in a fast but believable way, the storyline will go downhill fast.

    I'll definitely be reading the next book though and have added some other 'Highland' type series to my wish list after listening to this one.

    Seriously, this is not where I thought I'd be at this point in the series. Everything was going so well.

    Beware that the beginning of this book may make you hesitant to keep reading. It does go somewhat implausible (more implausible, considering it's a paranormal romance?) in premise.

    That said though, the story between the two main characters is good. I did like that they'd met each other so long in the past and that their chemistry lights right back up as if they hadn't been apart for 200 years.

    I've really enjoyed this series, but do think that it needs to be wrapped up soon. Jacquelyn Frank has kind of written herself into a corner by the end of this book.

    Story

    This book actually started at the end of the first one. Though the first part of this book recaps what happened during the last part of the previous book, I'd encourage you to read them in order. It'll give you a better idea about what's happening, why and who the characters are.

    Regarding the actual story, it's good, but not as good as the previous. This one starts to go in depth on some of the side characters and organizations that are involved and it kind of all gets muddled. Or it did to me. I'd rather focus on the main characters and worry less about the machinations of separate entities that are only somewhat relevant. However, by the end of the book, I did see the tie in to all the side stuff and that will lead us into the 3rd book nicely.

    For me, the taste of the 3rd book was the most enticing part of this book. But again, it's worth the read just not my favorite.

    I'm sad that this is the next-to-last book. Hopefully other books from Jacquelyn Frank will be as good and I can content myself with them.

    I highly recommend every single book in this series. Be sure to read them from book 1. They're all exciting, fun, funny, sweet, romantic and sexy.
