    Two all-new novellas that cross the boundaries of desire. "Exiled" by Maya Banks: Enticed to the island paradise where an enigmatic prince is living in exile, beautiful, virginal Talia is introduced to a world of forbidden pleasure where the prince's every whim is fulfilled and her fantasies are rendered in exquisite detail. "Sway" by Lauren Dane: Levi Warner is an established, older man - wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies.

    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.

    Where does Fifty Shades of Grey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is by far my #2 on my favorite books of all time...#1 being the next book in the trilogy "Fifty Shades Darker".....WONDERFUL....HOT!!!


    What other book might you compare Fifty Shades of Grey to and why?

    I can't really compare this to any other books, it is a LOT hotter/sexier than ANYTHING I have ever read.


    What does Becca Battoe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a wonderful job with her voice changing it to make each character unique.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The thing I really enjoy about this whole trilogy is the fact that as a book, it leaves SO MUCH to the imagination. I love that it has some humor as well as pure sexiness to it.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful way to "rev-up" your personal sex-life....WOWSA!! ;)
