    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.

    Story
    "What happened???"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was just OK. After the previous books leading up to this one, especially book 4, let's face it I was expecting "more than ordinary". This book is just ordinary. Maybe even plain boring.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Maya Banks? Why or why not?

    Of course. I've enjoyed too many of her books not to try another one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The pool party was a hoot.


    Any additional comments?

    I would probably pass on this book. It's just not interesting enough for me, even though I LOVED all the previous books in the series.

    "Best Book of the Series"

    I loved Connor and Lyric story. Sooo good. Lyric's wild antics and Connor's NO bullcrap attitude was perfect. Could have used more smex, especially for the Sweet Surrender Series but this was the best book in the whole series. I read this one first and I'm glad I did. After reading all the others, I must say this is the best story, and they are Vinalla!!!! Worth the buy or credit.

    I like how you can read/listen to all the other books NOT in order. You can pick and choose your order. Each book gives you more background on other characters, but they are not nessarcy for the book ur listening too. Goood way of writing. Maya Bank is usually a follow the leader or book follow book writer. So for you not to have to go in order and still have a really good read/listen, plus understanding all the characters is pretty impressive.

    Actually it was the discription of the other characters in this book that made to go back and read/listen to the other books. I wanted more background, but it was not need, I just wanted it.

    Narrator is good. No prob there... She is not Xe Sands, but very good for this sereis.

    "Good"

    I loved Connor and Lyric story. Sooo good. Lyric's wild antics and Connor's. Connor is the last of his friends to remain single. He has sat back and watched and laughed as every one of them has fallen like a rock for their wives. When he gets assigned to be Lyric Jones' bodyguard, he wants nothing to do with the rock star. It's dislike at first sight for them both, except for the huge spark between them.

    Lyric doesn't understand why she needs a bodyguard when she already has two of them. Her record company is insistent that there are threats being made against her, and they want to protect her.

    Once these two are stuck together, the sparks fly and they begin to see a little deeper into each other.

    Story
    "Funny sweet and romantic with a splash intensity."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sweet Possession to be better than the print version?

    I loved the series best of all because it was just a man who knows how to treat his woman and only wanted her even though she was plump and fiesty. The author writing was exceptional I felt like I was watching a movie and drinking a Cosmo. Great way to update the other chrachters and add the addition of new ones.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Connor and Kane. Tough men who don't take the bullcrap. Lyric was stronger than I thought. After her confession's I wanted to hold her to.


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

    This one was less erotic but good because the earlier books are very kinky. But if you like gang bangs this book isn't for you. This book is a true love story about a man who lost his sh*t over a woman his woman. I love the relationship that Lyric had with his friends it made me ache for the same.


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

    Yes you will laugh and cry this book brings up the topic of sexual abuse of a child very riveting.

    "Good listen"

    This was a good story with 2 seemingly strong characters and I guess in way they are. Connor is exactly what Lyric needs if neither of them wants to admit it, but sometimes as in this case life makes you own up in one way or another.

    "Another great installment in the Sweet Series"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Conner-he's a stand up guy


    What does Caroline Wintour bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She gives each character their own voice. She is fantastic.


    Any additional comments?

    Some complain it is not a realistic storyline....come on! This is a fun book about a bodyguard protecting a 'flawed' pop star. As with all the Sweet Series, adult themes and language. One of my favorite in the series.

    The story and vanilla sex is this story worked for me. But what really worked for me was when all five Sweet Series women got together. The pool scene was a huge LOL for me. Ms. Banks - please keep them coming.

    "Boring"
    What would have made Sweet Possession better?

    A different reader and a better plot. I love Maya Banks but this was too Hallmark Channel for me.


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This seemed more geared to teenagers except for the explicit sex.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Wintour’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from Sweet Possession?

    I wasn't enchanted by any of them.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a pretty predictable.

    Story
    "do not waste your credit"
    What would have made Sweet Possession better?

    this story does not follow the sweet series story line, just the characters are repeated.
    All the sweet stories are closer to erotica than romance. This one is so ordinary, it is almost as if Ms Banks needed to meet a publishing dead line.


    What could Maya Banks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Follow her other outlines a bit closer


    What didn’t you like about Caroline Wintour’s performance?

    this is a bad reader, but if you like Ms Banks erotica, you have to put up w/Wintour's bad breathy voice. Awful


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none, waste of listening hours. I kept thinking it would get better


    Any additional comments?

    all other sweet stories are good for erotica, but again you must be able to endure a bad reader voice. book4, 2, 6 are the better ones

    "Worth the credit just for Connor!"

    So I'm jumping around again but that is because it is what's available in audio. I am not patient when it comes to a series. After going from book 4 to book 1, we now end up with Connor & Lyric.

    I liked the plot of the story. Completely believable especially seeing that Lyric is a pop diva. Sadly, the sex scenes weren’t nearly as earth shattering as in book 4 & 1 but then again, not every character has to be a BDSM “House” card carrying member. I love the new character introduced, Kane, especially at the end of the book.

    I will admit I loved when the girls got together! They are hilarious. I could see myself just hanging out with them!

    Again, nothing but positives for the narrator!
