Publisher's Summary

For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies, never her own - until now....

Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything. Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes.

Damon has no desire to let her go, however. Serena is the woman he's long searched for, and it's up to him to convince her to stay when the game is all over with. He wants their fantasy to become their reality and for Serena to remain his pampered, cherished submissive.

What the Critics Say

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book if you are not afraid of explicit content. I debate whether this is good or bad behavior for a woman but it is her choice and she can always say no.....


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Persuasion?

    No specific memorable moments but I enjoyed hearing about all the other characters this series is about.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I am not enjoying the narrator, but I am able to tolerate her. She speaks too fast and there is something about her tone that sounds fake.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    These books are toe curlers so beware....

    "Definately about sexual slavery"
    What did you love best about Sweet Persuasion?

    I loved the way he seemed so strong and sexy and I cant actually see him


    What other book might you compare Sweet Persuasion to and why?

    The surrender of Persephone. They both have very dominate sexual encounters and they both have great love stories.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    not to much except that I would have like her voice of the main character to be more defined


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Persuasion?

    It's all good.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Wintour – was your favorite?

    Damon, wow what a man!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it all in one sitting!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very sexually explict, which when it's done right, and in my opinion it was very right, is good. If strong sexual content bothers you then it's not for you. Otherwise, it's well worth a credit or the purchase price. I loved the first book in this series. Liked this one even better and I'm looking foward to book 3!!!!!!!

    "I liked...but total submission???"

    II really like how each Dom is completely different in these books. Maya Bank does a great job in creating her characters. However, that being said, Serena gave Damien total submission. WTF! No way on this planet! 24/7 submission is humanly impossible for an independent woman like Serena, but Banks creates a pretty good fantasy. The characters seem soooo believable too. Great Job... Great Smex... Worth the Credit. Not a buy, but a free credit.

    "Wow-so unexpected!"
    Would you listen to Sweet Persuasion again? Why?

    The raw emotion, fear, and lust all into one book! Just when you least expect the love to grow, it hits you like a train! Serena-such a shy and unspoken person. Damien-the dom who wants control........Fair warning though-YOU WILL CRY!!!!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Serena-I can relate to her in so many ways!


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Wintour’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She puts such expression and love for the role into the reading of the book


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    CRIED!!!! Sad thing is it wasn't even the main concern of the book-something so off topic, you almost forget about it


    Any additional comments?

    A must read in the collection!

    "All Sex- no Plot"
    What disappointed you about Sweet Persuasion?

    The book lacked a story line. Chapter after chapter of explicit sex scenes gets boring after a while. Now that I think back, the other Maya Banks books I've read, they all seem to suffer from the same problem. I don't think I'll read any more of her books.

    "This author is always so creative in her storyline"
    If you could sum up Sweet Persuasion in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, sensual, love


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Persuasion?

    When a fantasy is fulfilled


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Serena decides to fullfill her own fantasy, not just her clients , and how she does it


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found the thought of a sex club...well different, and Serena's willingness to be auctioned as a slave...very different


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good storyline again, as always Maya Banks delivers.
