    When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires. Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

    What disappointed you about Rush?

    Really liked 50 shades trilogy, the crossfire series, and the Stark trilogy. I was looking for something similar but this was awful. He just seemed mean and I have no intentions reading about sharing I mean seriously, if you love someone you don't farm them out to others. Will go no further in this series!!


    What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

    Main male character too mean. Shared the girl with other men. Even though he regretted it, I was not interested. And then later, he was such a wimp. Did not stay in character


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Adam Paul?

    Needed a female. He was monotone and you could tell he didn't get it. Made a bad story worse.


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

    All the above except sadness. Was pretty disgusted and sorry I wasted a credit


    Any additional comments?

    No more for me. Will cross this author off my list

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My favorite erotica series by far. I have listened to it several times. Gideon and Ava have a very compelling story. She is such a mess and really complicates his life while rocking his world!!


    What other book might you compare Entwined With You to and why?

    50 shades trilogy
    Stark series


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    Love,love,love, Jill Redfield. She is a cut above the rest. Great inflection and variety in characters. You can tell she GETS these books. I even listened to other books read by her just because I love her voice. Top stars from me!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love can survive

    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Freed again? Why?

    Ok. This was my first romantic erotica series. I read it only because of all the hype about it. However I was pleasantly surprised. Liked the redemptive nature of the story for Christopher. I HAVE listened to the series more than once.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how Anna was able to positively influence Christopher's life. He was such a tortured soul


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. She was good. Liked her narration


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They ARE making a film of this book!!

    For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes the third novel in the erotic, fast-paced trilogy including Release Me and Claim Me. This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who's never had to take "no" for an answer, and Nikki Fairchild, the Southern belle who only says "yes" on her own terms.

    Jordy says: "Complete Me the final book of the Stark Trilogy!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Liked the series. However reader beware. The female character is really into pain. More sado/ masochistic than other series I have read. Characters are flawed but compelling. I liked their story. Wouldn't mind more with these characters


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Damien -- liked his whole story and how he was willing to sacrifice the things he valued to have Nikki in his life


    What three words best describe Sofia Willingham’s voice?

    Breathy, varied, nice


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They sacrifice it all for love
