    Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship. Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

    Would you try another book from Christina Lauren and/or Grace Grant and Kirby Heybourne ?

    The book was fine, another dopey sex story, but the narration was bad, especially the French.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christina Lauren? Why or why not?

    Sure, although I could not get past the beginning of Beautiful Stranger (TERRIBLE "English" accent) and had to return it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The French accent was hideous and I'm not even French! I'm sure there are narrators out there who are either native speakers of whatever language it's supposed to be in, or have better accents. I mean the whole point of an audiobook is that you LISTEN to it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Ambivalence, but I cringed every time there was French spoken.

    Being the assistant to uptight workaholic Brant Stone is more than Emma can bear. But in her weaker moments, she can't help but admit that the sexy control freak can turn her on with an insult more than any man she's ever met. So when Emma gains an unexpected advantage, she blackmails Brant into accompanying her to her high school reunion. After all, the enemy she knows is preferable to a blind date arranged by her meddling mother.

    The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If I had selected another book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by S.L. Scott again?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alexandria Watts’s performances?

    Maybe.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Resistance?

    The overall writing was hackneyed, nothing original or interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Any of the Stage Dive books are much, much better.

    Brynne Bennett has left scandal in her past and is living the good life. An American grad student at the University of London and part-time photographic model, she's getting back on track with lots of hard work and focus on a career in art conservation. When London businessman Ethan Blackstone buys her nude portrait, he wants to possess more than just her image. He wants Brynne in his bed, serving him in every way possible. He has no trouble voicing his desires, and he isn't taking no for an answer.

    What disappointed you about Naked?

    Everything.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something better written.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If it had been on mute.


    What character would you cut from Naked?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    Ugh. Simply awful. A badly written rip-off of a Fifty Shades/Crossfire mishmash.
