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.

This story has mixed feeling for me. It started a little flat and I struggled to be drawn into the characters. Rori is someone we can all relate to. She was not popular and struggled with herself confidence and appearance. She is smart and is now come back to her old town and is not taking any crap. Although the author did an ok job developing this character there were some gaps. The Alpha men Zach and Jude were also interesting but I needed more to truly buy into them. Especially Zach they just sort of met and then boom they are a couple. You don’t get the connection at first. I like the bad boy role that Jude plays. But again to you read parts and think did they edit out some details to the story line. I would not call this truly an erotic read. There is BDSM but it is mild. Overall it was a good listen but I am glad I got the book on sale. That made it worth the listen. I think the book gets better as it goes but there was potential for the story to be more. It is a good solid listen.
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!
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
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.
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.
