Ten years ago, Rori Simon left town shy, unattractive, and with zero self-esteem. Now she's back, older, stronger and finally loving herself - and it shows. Hot men are soon knocking at her door, including Jude Callahan, the bad boy who starred in her teenage daydreams... and her adult fantasies.
Jude can't believe the sexy, confident woman before him is actually Rori! She's gotten under his skin like no other woman has... and she brings out secret desires he can't resist. He wants to dominate Rori with every fiber of his being. Wants to own her and pleasure her. To cherish her as he makes her his.
Rori discovers she likes being controlled. She also knows Jude is not a one-woman man. Everything changes when she meets Zach Helm. Edgy, sensual Zach knows just what she needs, and before long, she's in love. Jude watches them together and wonders if he's lost his chance forever.

I loved this book the most because it started out with the two main characters hooking up immediately, unlike other books that make you wait until the book us almost finished. It was a true romantic, exoctic love story with some really hot sex scenes! I hope I can find another book similar to this story.
I loved the hot and steamy love scenes. I love how Rory was not afraid to go for what she wanted in bed too.
There was a tragic incident that happend in this story that made me cry, it was so touching. That's how involved this book pulled me in to it.
I highly reccomend this book to you if you enjoy reading hot, sexy love stories. It really pulls you into the story.
I had a hard time with the Southern twang.
Yes. The book was very erotic. I enjoyed the twist with the story. I would likely read another Lauren Dane book.
Some of the voices were laughable at times. But that did not steer me from the content... HOT! HOT! HOT!
Say something about yourself!
Right up to the last hour of this book I would have given it a 5 star rating...then the plot made be bawl hysterically. I don't read fun steamy books to bawl, but I got so invested in the characters, due to the excellent writing and depth of them, that their sorrow became my sorrow....and that actually made me mad.
I would give the steamy scenes a B+, there was bondage, and a sub/dom thing going on, but in a tasteful and non porn kind of way, and over all the plot was very good, and believable.
So, in other words, it wasn't a MUST read of mine, but totally worth the $4.95 I got it on sale for.
I think this would have been a good read if it was abridged. Never thought I would say that, but the story was good, the language too crude.
There is basically no plot, and if you like continuous sex scenes including dominance and toys, this might interest you. The narrator is not bad, but there is basically no plot or character development. I will be returning this book.
Books are for entertainment and by all means this book is entertaining. When a scene can make a zing go right to your nether parts that's some pretty good stuff and it's all good to me but I hate crying and this book did both; hence loving and hating it.
The D/s is pretty good even it goes way too fast to be remotely realistic but the BDSM is kind of hot.
British and addicted to Audible! Hoping my review helps you spend or keep your credits!
Sex, love and erotica I would have used another word instead of erotica but I don't want to give much too away.
Rori - she was strong knew what she wanted - I got her.
No not that I can recall
The ties that bind - sorry Bruce!
I wasn't sure what I'd get with this is my first Lauren Dane book.There are both good bad and so so reviews so It was in my wish list for a while before I whipped up a credit to purchase it.I loved that our Rori was NOT a push over that you cheered along with her. Yes some of the scenes are raunchy but I don't think I'd class them as vanilla. Overall I did enjoy this book as there was a good contemporary story there. I just wish there was more of Ms Dane on Audible guess I have to look else where to see if this was a one off for the author.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I was torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one. I ended up going with four and here is why. The love scenes in this book were HOT! The chemistry was HOT! The dialogue was great, the characters were well developed and the story line was good.
What I didn't like: The plot moved forward a little too fast in the beginning making some of the encounters and relationships seem unrealistic. Then, when things should have sped up, they slowed down.
I absolutely adored Jude in all of his womanizing ways. Jude was the guy that Rori always fantasized about. He was the unattainable bad boy in high school. Rori is all grown up now and Jude is still a complete womanizer. He is now a cop and on the right side of the law but frequently ends up on the wrong side of the bed.
Rori was that girl in High School, the one who the guys liked as a "friend". She was a little overweight, wore glasses, was a little too nerdy, and she was not the most attractive. She has grown up and is now a curvy woman and her nerdy personality has landed her a top notch degree and a best selling author job. Rori is coming off a two year relationship that ended very badly. She has decided to come home and live near her sister and her family.Rori rolls into town and all heads turn her way. She is now a smoking hot successful woman and has men chasing after her immediately, including Jude.
Jude has his chance but will he blow it? Because if he does, there is another dark horse in the running, Zach Helm sees Rori for exactly what she is, a born submissive in the bedroom. Zach is more than willing to take the reins where Rori is concerned, and with Zach he is playing for keeps. Jude may be in it just to play the game... unless he can pull his head out of his ass long enough to see what an amazing woman Rori is.
So all in all this was a great book with a great story line. It just felt like parts of it were missing. There was multi-POV narrative so you get to see what all of the main characters are going through.
4 Steamy Stars!
Isabell Gordon was great with the delivery of the story
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
This book was just OK. Nothing special and i found it quite boring. Lot's of sex but the story lacked substance. I did not like the accents of the men. No sex appeal in the voices. It's not ta book i will listen to again.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
Hot, Sexy, Romance
The story itself...so much in this genre is written with the 'story' as filler for hot, bedroom scenes. This had several strong twisting pathways and turns.
YES! Tracker's Sin: Hell's Eight - she is fantastic in both.
It was a great book drawing on all emotions, flirty & fun, anger, sadness, etc. Extremely well done
FYI: There are adult scenarios including D/s along with crass language.
