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 mixed feeling about this book. There were parts I loved but the majority of it really grated on my nerves. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted to buy the sequel however the thought of being subjected to another 8 hrs of poor writing is too much to bear. I felt like I was listening to 50 Shades of Grey and no, that's not a compliment. Along with a completely foolish and ridiculous "story line" (if you can even call it that) Sarah Fawkes' ability to repeat herself incessantly is impressive. Between E.L. and this author I never, EVER want to hear the word murmur again. In fact, I think it should be banned from erotica novels. There is no way two people can murmur that often. I'm also getting tired of the typical, plain, inexperienced, naive heroine whose life is on hold until a rich and powerful man comes along. But not to save her. Inevitably his lifestyle manages to put her in danger. How original...no one's ever done that one before. Fan fiction much?
As for the narrator, Clarissa Knightly, I agree with some of the other reviews stating she sounded a bit old for the part. However I think she still did a bang up job. Her characters were easily identifiable and she put a lot of emotion into it.
Not unless I was desperate.
Exciting, convincing and satisfying. She made a bad book tolerable.
None of them. If anything there were too few characters.
If you're sick of reading the same story over and over again from authors lacking talent and originality you've got to check out the "Original Sinners Series" by Tiffany Reisz. The heroin, Nora Sutherlin, will rock your socks! Powerful, unique and extremely well written. Every book has a different narrator which might not suit everyone's tastes. The first two narrators are great, the last one drove me nuts. Still...the book was worth it.
Yes, I would listen this book again like I did with 50 Shades of Gray series. I love Jeremiah's tormented soul. This book has stream sex, action, suspense all in one.
Lucy and Jeremiah's first interaction in the elevator.
Lucy and Jeremiah's first interaction in the elevator.
This is a series. I did not realize it when I bought this book. However, I am glad it is a series b/c I want more of Lucy and Jeremiah characters to development. Also, the ending of the book was a cliff hanger. I can't wait for the next one and get to know more about Lucas. Jeremiah's brother.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
I loved this book it was hot and full of mystery and i can't wait for the next one
This doesn't register high on my naughty scale, but it was well worth the credit. I enjoyed the book. If you liked 50 shades, you'll love it. There's more suspense, there's humour and the main character gets past the whiney stage fairly quickly.
As with any book I listen to I can really take in the words rather than having to re-read lines or papragraphs. I enjoyed the narrator as well.
The fact that it wasn't as Fifty Shades as I expected it to be by the summary I had read. No offense to Fifty Shades as I've already read that series twice! I was happy that the story seemed to veer off just enough that I was not always comparing it to Fifty.
When Lucy was rescued
When she was told "no" to love
I read on Sara's blog that she entends to 'Definitly" continue this series but I'm hoping it does not take forever ...the ending was too abrupt for my liking.
This started out to be another tired, worn out plot of the Billionaire kinky guy seducing the unlikely out of his league woman, where he will teach her his kink world but then falls in love with her and she becomes more than "property" to him... yawn yawn. However, this book has that underlying premise but then gets a little more creative and thickens the plot a bit more, in a somewhat "Hollywood" fashion. If you like the billionaire type books I describe above, and what a little more action and deeper plot lines, than you will enjoy this book.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I really liked this. The female character is actually quite funny!
This book was very good in how Lucy reacts to each situation. She is a temp office worker who pretty much eye hunch a hotty on the elevator everyday. One day she notice they are alone and he being the dominating man that he (Mr. Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries) is stops the elevator and well ummm plays with her.
He pretty much fires her from her job and hires her as his personal assistant to do anything he wants. This is a raunchy, erotic, romantic novel... but it is actually really really good. Like on the level of romantic contemporary. There is alot of smex, but it is written into the story so well, you don't really notice that it is raunchy. In fact, it makes the story better. I loved it. This is good buy or free credit. I wish they had more of Fawkes stuff on here.
Clarissa Knightly did an awesome job. At first I thought she was totally gonna bomb the male part b/c of the deep raspy voice when she first talks as Jeremiah, but it totally worked. I found myself loving Jeremiah more than Lucy right around the end of chapter 1! So kudos to u Knightly. Still no Xe Sands... but very good narration.
I would highly recommend it to friends who enjoy this type of book. The D/s is so well written.
The Jennifer Probst Millionnaire series if I had to compare but totally different in many ways. ;)
The punishment In the boathouse.
When Luke shows back up.
I can't wait for more in the series!
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.
"Dissappointed by the ending"
Good book which I enjoyed but like the other reviews which sadly I did not read first if there is no sequel planned then do not read leaves you hanging - such a shame
It is a great story, I loved every part of it BUT the ending lets you completely hanging!! If I had known I would't buy this book. It is very frustrating. The author does not give a clear idea if there is going to be a sequel so if you think that you will be bothered by an unfinished story then this isn't the book for you
yes its sexy & action packed good story line
she was quite good with emotions & feelings in her reading
i hope to god you bring part two (castaway) to audio
Steamy, naughty, exciting
The plot was very exciting and there was much more to it than just sex.
It took a little while to get used to her voice but I got there in the end.
If you are a friend of Fifty Shades-trilogy, you won't get disappointed!
"Anything he wants"
No real beginning and no real end, unless I'm missing a book 1 and 3 then this was a very strange book. Poorly written but with some sort of a story there. The reader sounded like a older women with was rather off putting as it made you feel uncomforable listening to some of the scenes. Not recommend this really.
I thought this was a fab story however the ending was very disappointing. Hope there is more to the story.
Really enjoyed and can't wait for the next book to be written. Full of suspense and twists much better than 50 shades in my opinion.
