Hypothetically speaking, of course. I've been hit on plenty of times, mostly by men with little finesse who thought what was between their legs made up for what they lacked between their ears. Sometimes I went home with them anyway, just because it felt good to want and be wanted, even if it was mostly fake. The problem with wanting is that it's like pouring water into a vase full of stones. It fills you up before you know it, leaving no room for anything else.
I don't apologize for who I am or what I've done in or out of bed. I have my job, my house, and my life, and for a long time I haven't wanted anything else. Until Dan. Until now.

Bravo to Megan Hart. This is an excellent book. I had a hard time putting my player down. El is a great character and someone I found myself yelling at as well as rooting for.
I recommend this book to all who have had abuse in their lives. I also recommend this book to anyone who wants a different kind of story.
Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
As others have mentioned already, this is an extremely odd book. I wouldn't call it erotic but rather a sexually explicit psychological drama. As far as the heroine's journey towards healing I think it works marginally well. I found it thought provoking in many respects. Unfortunately it still has elements of the romantic 'stock' characters - most notably the male love interest who has patience imagination and free time beyond what might genuinely be believed. And the sex, attached as it is to greivous psychological pain and compulsion, is rarely enjoyable and might just as well have been left out entirely - and I usually live for the 'good parts'!
To add further disappointment, Elenna Stauffer does exactly the same voices and tone in this book as she's done in every other frothy romance I've heard her read (and I have a 3 book a week habit so I've heard them all) and this book could truly have used something more subtle and nuanced.
I can only recommend this book as an intriguing failure if and when pickings are slim.
I have to agree with the other reviews, very hot! I'm definitely and "Elle" fan.
However, I just got bored after awhile. I really think it was the narrator, I just couldn't get past the "male" voices. If there were a different reader, I probably would have loved it!
It was erotic, but also well written and a good story. A little more intense than many erotic books.
I can say it compares to 50 Shades, but it isn't quite in the same league. It was still good anyway.
She was ok. Sounded a little like the teacher on Glee.
No extreme reaction. I did listen to it fast because I wanted to find out what the secrets were.
Really liked the book and would recommend it.
Pathetic. Lame. Weak. Useless. Pitiful.
The listener may lose brain cells listening to this one. I'm sure most of mine were dead when I bought the stupid thing!
