    A chance meeting in Rio takes Maria to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune, yet ends up working the streets as a prostitute. In Geneva, Maria drifts further and further away from love while at the same time developing a fascination with sex. Eventually, Maria's despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria has to choose between pursuing a path of darkness or risking everything to find her own 'inner light'.

    Story

    I love this author. I purchased this book because it was written by him and I thought it might be interesting. I found it to be very sensual and thought-provoking. It is a love story that looks at true human spirit and not fantasised versions that we think we should follow. It will make you think. You may be shocked, you might be outraged but if you digest the story and think about what the author is trying to portray, you will be a better person for having heard it.
    Having the two narrators makes for fantastic reading!

    Story

    I love stories that bounce back and forth in time slowly filling the gaps in the reader's mind. This story was brilliant for this. The ending was a little too easy to guess due to the writer's foreshadowing skills, however it was a very enjoyable listen. I am very pleased that I bought this!

    His name is Rafer Callahan. He was a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who fought through life the only way he knew how: with his fists. But Rafer never meant to bring any harm to Cambria Flannigan, the girl—the lover—whose sister he’d been unable to save…. Cami lost her sister in the brutal murders that rocked her hometown so many years ago. Some still believe that Rafe, along with his friends Logan and Crowe, were involved. But how could Rafe—who haunted her girlish dreams, then her adult fantasies—be a killer?

    Story

    If you're looking for erotica with a story, then this is it. It is NOT a thriller/romance as the synopsis implied (well at least to me). I guess (now) I am a little prudish but if you like stories with words like "p--sy"and "p--ck" then you may like this book. I have only listened to a little as the repetitive sex scenes put me off but the story line was rather good at the start. I could imagine that it could have had possibility. The narrator took quite a bit of getting used to though, as it is rather a dry performance and she's a slow reader. Once I got used to it it wasn't so stressful. I would say that this is personal preference though as I speak rather quickly and like to listen to a lot of emotion in stories.
