    When Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged entrepreneur Christian Grey, it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them had anticipated. Now, finally together, they have love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of infinite possibilities. But just when it seems that they really do have it all, tragedy and fate combine to make Ana's worst nightmares come true....

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Definitely, I would cut a third of the sex out and condense the series into one book with a reasonable story line.


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. L. James? Why or why not?

    Not for a long time. Too much drawn out sex in the middle of the story just getting going. Repetitive language. I found myself fast forwarding past the sex to get back to the story.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s performance?

    Not too bad.


    Was Fifty Shades Freed worth the listening time?

    Yes and no. I enjoyed the book but became frustrated with Anastasia's language and her "Inner Goddess"


    Any additional comments?

    Just how naive can a woman be? Miss Steele and Mr Grey? Come on. A college student who is absolutely stunning and still a virgin??? Was this set in the wrong era??? A virgin who has rough initial sex then repeats it the next morning??? Unbelievable.

    Story
    (30)

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. But In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police....

    Where does Guilty Wives rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have just finished 50 Shades of Grey and this book beats it hands down.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Definitely, I couldn't stop listening to it. I had it playing softly under my pillow at 4am.


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

    A feeling of tension building.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Wouldn't go as far as that but it was an emotional roller coaster.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book I have reviewed because I think it deserves a good rating.
