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

"Incredibly intense and complex characters, delicious conflict and explosive sex scenes that fairly melt the print off the pages, Sweet Persuasion will have Maya Banks fans, new and existing alike, lasciviously begging for more." (Romantic Times)

    "Not my cup of tea."
    What disappointed you about Sweet Persuasion?

    The lack of spine of the main female character.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Maya Banks again?

    yes. This is the 1st book by MB that I have not enjoyed. I was actually more interested in the sub-story in this book. Can't wait to read it. (yes, I will buy the actual book and read it instead of listening)


    How could the performance have been better?

    I feel like the narrator tried too hard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sweet Persuasion?

    The feeding of food to each other. GRAB A FORK AND FEED YOURSELF!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I was actually more interested in the secondary story in this book. Can't wait to read it. (yes, I will buy the actual book and read it instead of listening if the narrator is the same as this book.)

    "I'm moving to Houston!!!!"
    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....

    "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.

    If you could sum up Sweet Persuasion in three words, what would they be?

    Hot Sexy Love!


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

    You pretty much can't go too wrong with any of her books. Shayla Black is another similar writer


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

    Damon - very kind heart in a dominant man


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

    YES!

    "nothing "sweet" about it"

    if your into sado masochism, male domination, inflicting and receiving pain and humiliation on another person for sexual fulfillment then this is the book for you. i found it simply pathetic as were all the characters. i have in the past really enjoyed Ms. Banks stories however i am rapidly changing my mind and am starting to wonder about where and how she is doing or obtaining her research?
    I'm truly not a prude but for me this goes way beyond what is healthy.
    really can't speak about the narration as the contents of the book so horrified me that i'm at a loss as to if she was any good. read at your own risk unless your into this kind of thing!

    "Beautiful"

    Damon is an amazing character how knows exactly what he wants and what he's not willing to settle for. Serena gets caught up in her own professions of allowing people to live their dreams out in reality. As Damon leads her through what she believes is only her fantasy, she soon discovers its more than that. But Damon character provides what she needs patiently. The overall story is beautiful, it displays complete trust and vulnerably and both parties surrender.

    "Love This Series - However This Isn't My Favorite"
    Where does Sweet Persuasion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This falls in the middle


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

    Wicked Lovers Series by Shayla Black


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

    Yes, she does the whole series and is fabulous.


    Any additional comments?

    This is probably the next to my least favorite in the series (Sweet Addiction is my least favorite) because there wasn't an action story mixed in (hunting a stalker, killer, etc.) The others can 'stand alone' - this one and Sweet Addiction not so much.

    "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

    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
