I was a bit worried about getting this book after reading a few of the reviews, but I am VERY glad I didn't listen!
While a few people go on and on about a supposed "rape" scene, I didn't see it that way. It is very BDSM in that sense, but I was in no way offended by the supposed scene and found it no way distracting from the story. Quite the opposite really. It goes from BDSM into a love story.
If you are open minded and looking for a good listen, this is a good one. I know I really enjoyed it!
I bought this book because it was on sale and I had enough to buy the book with a cash credit. I wasn't sure at first if I would really like this book because it is not of my normal genres that I listen to. But I do love a good Scotland Warrior in a kilt... honestly what woman doesn't? So I gave it a try not expecting much.... it was on sale after all.
Boy was I surprised to find that I absolutely LOVED it! I loved it enough that the rest of the series is now either in my cart or my wish list to spend my monthly credits on!
I had read all the reviews and was a bit worried about the narration because of them but I found him to be an easy listen for a male reader. This man has a "purr" to his voice that is very exotic and intriguing.
If you are looking for a fun, easy, yet riveting listen, this one is great!
I REALLY enjoyed this series!
I wasn't really thrilled with the idea of this book when I had read the reviews and read that the last story was man in love with a man story. I'm not into those types of stories, but I purchased it any way and I am so glad I did!
Let me say that even though the last story is man on man, it is more of a love story than anything else. Yes there is man on man sex, but it was the first one that I actually really listened to and was greatly glad that I did. While that type of thing still won't float my boat, this one was done in such a way as to be appealing even to the straight crowd!
I say give it a chance! There are three stories here, they are all connected to each other but will each stand alone. And if you don't find you like one, there are still two more excellent stories to listen to that are well worth it!
While I REALLY enjoyed this story, I was HIGHLY disappointed to hear it as the first story in a 3 story compilation I also purchased the same day!!!
You can get this SAME, FULL story by purchasing Hot in Handcuffs: Three Novellas of Sensual Capture.
I really wish I would have realized this myself before I spent my credits on both of these books thinking I was getting the SAME thing.
Now, don't think for a single minute that I am in ANY way putting down this book! It was GREAT! I loved it and wish it would have been longer if anything.
I just wish I would have realized I purchased the same thing twice on the same day!
I have listened to this book a few times already! I love it! So far I would say it is the best in the series!
I know this may sound weird, but I loved the scene where Hunter is leaving to return to active duty believing that he will be divorced by the time he returns (or I should say IF since he is sure he isn't going to return alive) to the US. The lengths he goes to in order to make sure that Kata is taken care regardless just goes to show that you can be a bad ass and still speak love with your every action!
I really hated to see this book come to end, but the ending itself is awesome! I laughed, cried, got mad, got upset, and of course got turned on!
Keep this series coming!
Surprisingly Great Read!
This whole book was great, I can't think of just "one" moment that I would mark as the "most memorable"
This reader did a very good job with the whole performance, I was pleasantly surprised.
Yes, I listened to this book in one sitting! I could not turn it off! And then I listened to it again!
I do hope they continue making the rest of this series into audible form! I keep checking but so far, no luck.
I am hooked and want more!
Well worth the credit for sure! The only thing missing was the "Batteries Not Included" warning in the description of the book! This one was Hot! Hot! and HOTTER!
I really do hope there is more to come in this series!
I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this novel, but it left me wanting MORE!
I really do hope they intend on doing the other two books in this series as audible books! I know I will gladly line up to spend my credits on them!
While the ending of the book sort of left you hanging and wanting to know more, there was so much more than just good sex in this book! Having never read/listened to anything by Sylvia Day before, I am very glad that I took the chance and listened to this one! Well worth the credit and then some!
It took me so long to decide to buy these books because I let the reviews scare me away. I really kick myself for that!
I am so glad I finally broke down and decided to make up my own mind on these books. I think they are great! I will admit that I am hooked and a huge fan now. I'm waiting for MORE!
Please don't let others who are seeking a literary masterpiece that is obscure and poetic keep you from giving these books a try. Yes, they are graphic and erotic, but in a sense they are very tame. Don't be afraid to try your own wild side out by listening to the adventures of Christian and Anastasia. They are a real, modern, love story that will be around for a very long time!
I was going through Fifty Shades withdrawal, no new books from authors I know I love and cherish, so I was just searching through recommendations on My Listener Page when I read a few reviews for this series. Finding a good erotica book that has a story to it and is well written is hard to do so I was half way expecting to be returning the book.
I must say that I will NOT be returning and in fact have turned around and bought the second book in the series as soon as the first one finished playing! I am hooked and I do hope there are more books in the series coming along.
Being as I came to listen to the book with no real expectations, I can not tell you how pleased I am that I listened to the recommendations of others.... not something that I usually do since most of the books I've come to love get very mixed reviews.
I won't give away anything of the story other than to say that if you are going through Fifty Shades of Withdrawal, this book will heat you up and more than cure any withdrawal symptoms you may be facing! I know it MORE than worked for me!
