First published as a five-part e-serial novel, Anything He Wants inflamed imaginations everywhere and became a national best seller. Now available for the first time ever as a complete audiobook, this edition contains never-before-released scenes and special bonus material. Don’t miss this erotic tale of a powerful billionaire who always gets what he wants and the young woman who’s about to enter his exclusive realm - a world of glittering opulence and all-consuming passion, where she’ll explore the darkest reaches of her own desire.
Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right? Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need. As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender. But even as enemies seek deadly revenge against him, she’ll discover that her greatest threat is falling for her fiercely guarded boss…and yielding to her own darkest needs.

I have had this in my wish list for awhile thinking it was another CEO billionaire meets nice fsog type girl. Actually I was pleasantly surprised, It did have dominant billionaire but a nice James Bond twist to it. It flowed along nicely and the love scenes were quite hot as well. Can't wait for next book. Be warned, This did have a cliffhanger.
I am on the fence with this one. Maybe my expectations are getting too high because of other books that I have read. I did not dislike the book but it was just ok. I don't think there was enough intro into the relationship before the elevator scene came to play out. I think it needed more build up so we got the tension between Jeremiah and Lucy. I guess I did not get the spark at first. It got better as the storyline progressed but again it was ok. I know this book got great reviews and they are not wrong is saying it was good but I've liked other books better. However, it left me intrigued enough at the end that I will probably get the next book. It does have a unique plot line. I just hope the relationship grows more in depth during the next book. I hate that they are going be released as chapter chucks rather than the entire novel. Overall I gave it a middle of the road rating. Not bad but nothing exciting. I like books that have that anticipation between characters and the pull that they share. This book lacked a bit of that. I will still say it is a solid read so don't shy away but if you compare it to books, like Bared to You, Release Me or Backstage Pass I was left wanting a bit.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
Okay let's do some other kinds of ratings.
Hot scenes: 10/10, they were descriptive and hotter than hot.
Male lead: 8/10, he's flawed but the best ones are.
Female lead: 5/10, she is wishy washy, has a spine sometimes, other times she is a brainless robot.
Their interaction with each other: 0/10, he treats her like a full on submissive in the bedroom and other places, he commands her bullies her intimidates her even black mails her. Their relationship would be okay if he showed her he cared but instead it is just commanding her without any of the sweetness of a Dom sub relationship, there is no cherish factor.
So yes it was hot, no it was not remotely believable or sweet. He frequently commands her to do outrageous things and then says "go clean yourself up", and no safe word is ever provided or talked about and they do something's where it really should have been provided. They never talk about being submissive he just jumps into full blown command mode and she doesn't have any idea why she is allowing all this.
There is a sequel coming out called castaway, but like this book it is coming out as a series and when it is all done I'm sure audible will get the book, but this book is a cliffhanger and I'm sad to say that I am just hoping that in the next book the male lead shows some sort of adoration.
Overall I am interested in the second book for plot reasons and just hope the tin man finds his heart because there is a line between submissive with adoration and just treating the woman like a combination blow up doll and door mat, and there is way too many door mat moments happening.
I am a mother and grandmother and soon to be married in 2014. I love to read all different kinds of books. I have kindle books and audio paperbacks hardcovers books you name it I got it. My favorite Authors is Brenda Jackson, Rochelle Alerts, Ann Christopher etc..
I would recommend this audio book but I would kinda let them know the ending is confusing.
I really can't pin point what I liked most about the story for me it was all over the place but still had me wanting to continue to listen because I was very intrigued by the plot unfolding in a very settle way. I am really hoping it is going to be a second book..
My favorite scene was actually the end scene where the brother states "let's make him chase us"
I did really have an extreme reaction until Lucy stated she loved him and he rejected her. I thought wow do he even realize he feels the same? I guess we'll know if there is a second book.
Reading some of the other comments got me really excited some stated waiting on the second book and that is what I am hoping for because the ending makes you feel as if there is going to be one.
I have only listened to the audio version of this book so I can't honestly say. But the narrator did a good job with this story.
I actually enjoyed both of the main characters in this story. One just compliments the other. The author does a great job bringing the both of them to life and allowing you to see how their past and their childhood upbringings molded them into the people they have become.
Yes, once the story opens it immediately captures your attention and your off. At some point and time you can relate to her struggling to just survive. Then in one moment everything changes.
As I stated earlier this book was very surprising as this was not an author I was familiar with. This book will have you from beginning to end, no slow moving parts that simply feel like boring page fillers. By the last line on the last page your already hungry and wanting the next book.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Yummy great Hot Hot story, dominant caring Male. Love this book by Sarah Fawkes and perfectly narrated by Clarissa Knightly. More More More please !!
Great start to a series. Loved it
When they first met
All of the above
It was Awesome.... 50 shades awesome - erotic and heart racing sexy, Jeremiah sounds like he is noting short of a sexual god! The only down fall to this book was that I didn't know it was part of a series so I was seriously pissed off at the ending! I can't wait for the next book!
Jeremiah and Lucy are tied for favorites. Lucy is so Naive and desperate for love. Jeremiah has been hurt so bad he is afraid to love, the combination is intoxicated. Just like with 50 shades - the relationship forming sucks you in!
Yes and I pretty much did, I couldn't seem to put it down!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
Sexy, Hot & Wild
Jeremiah's protective nature
She does a great job with all characters
The end....it made me frustrated as it left so many unanswered questions!
Adult themes and language
I downloaded this book a while back and put off reading because I had become weary of the 50 Shades scenarios. The author, Sara Fawkes blew it out of the water! Who is she and why did I not know about this new series?
Well, "Anything He Wants" is a very hot sexy read but written with the intelligence missing in 50 and other copy-cats. A well developed and exciting plot packed with heart-stopping suspense, murder, kidnappings places this story way ahead of 50 and the other knock-offs. All the characters are well developed, defined, vivid, interesting and exciting. I was pleasantly surprised and now definitely hooked on the series. LOVED IT!
Also, I LOVED the way it ended...Leaving you on the edge of another suspenseful, well developed PLOT for book #2. I can hardly wait for book #2 this summer, 2013.
DEFINITELY worth a credit. You will not be disappointed. Hurry and download today!!!!!
