Salon owner Julie Stanford wanted Nathan Tucker ever since she gave him his first massage. Getting paid to feel every inch of his body, stripped, oiled, and spread out in front of her? Stuff dreams are made of. But the sexy guy was oblivious to the signals she was sending - until she finished off his final rub-down with something extra. In fact, the best extra he ever had. Unfortunately, he came around too late. Now Julie's moving on....
The woman was driving him crazy. She lit fire to his insides then ran like a scalded cat. And now she's going to someone else to have all her fantasies fulfilled? Over his dead body.... He's more than willing to give her what she wants, and as soon as he pins the little minx down, he'll show her his own brand of sweet seduction.

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.
Because they just keep getting better!!! This is the third book in the series and all the stories are different and great.
She does a excellent job as always!
These books are sexually explict, so if you don't like that then I don't recommend them. I think they are worth the credit or the full purchase price. I mean "WOW"!!!!!
yes, because it is part of a series
I would have given more meat to Nathan's character
get a different narrator
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a pretty good story. I liked Julie and Nathan and their story was good and kept me on the edge until the end.
Julie is a strong and independent woman that owns her own salon. She's a beautiful, curvy woman that likes herself but has trouble finding men that will do the same. She's had men tell her she's too heavy and complain about her strong opinions and it's made her doubt herself in the past. Julie wont put up with that again and tends to keep her relationships with men short and under her control.
Nathan is a good guy that works for the security firm that Faith & Gray (from book #1 Sweet Surrender) both work at. Nathan is a bit dumb when it comes to women (at least Julie) but he's a good friend and loyal.
So in book #1, Nathan ends up losing a bet and has to shave his head. Faith tells him that he'd look great with an earring in one ear and gets him to go to Julie's salon to get his ear pierced. While there, Nathan gets convinced to start doing regular massages with Julie. Julie is majorly hot for Nathan and when he comes in for the massages she tries to make her interest known. Unfortunately, Nathan seems a bit oblivious to Julie's efforts so she starts getting frustrated with her lack of success in getting Nathan to notice her. As noted in the book description, Julie ends up giving him a great and also naughty massage and then fires him as a clients, running off and making herself scarce for a while so Nathan can't find her.
About this time we find out that Nathan hasn't been blind to Julie, he's just been so afraid of making a fool of himself in front of her that he's been spending all his time around her trying not to. When Julie makes his night and then runs off not to be seen, Nathan is flummoxed and it gets even worse when he finds out that Julie is asking Damon to set her up with an anonymous menage with 2 unknown men at his club (with her blindfolded). Nathan is able to arrange for him and Mica to be the men with Julie but his efforts to engage in a real relationship with her and a bit on the weak side. Their road to a relationship is a tumultuous and long one but they do work things out and end the story starting a HEA together.
This was a pretty enjoyable story. I liked Julie...she was kind of brash and definitely nor perfect but I still enjoyed her as a heroine. Nathan was a good guy but he was so dumb when it came to relationships! I mean OMG I just wanted to slap him upside his head and tell him to get a brain! Still, he was a sweety and got his act together eventually. I will admit that I found it a bit annoying that the relationship didn't actually turn into one until the very end of the story. I liked it but I prefer to see the couple have at least some book-time where they're actually together and in a relationship. That was my only real complaint though. Overall, I liked the story and would recommend it. :)
redheaded book worm
I love following these characters throughout each series. Gripping storyline that keeps you interested from start to finish!
I really enjoyed the audio of this book. Nathan and Julie's story was sweet and hot. Maya Banks knows how to write her books will draw you in and keep your attention till the very end. I've read the Sweet Series more then once bc they are so good and now I'm listening to this series and I can honestly say I loved it just as much as when I read it and I didn't want to stop listening. If your looking for something hot and sweet to listen to I recommend you add this book and the rest of the series to your library or your wishlist for future purchase.
I think I expected more from this story than I got. Julie is supposed to be the outspoken somewhat bad girl in the group, dishing it out but not following her own lead when it comes to the one thing she wants. The story has good parts but like I said based on the other stories in the series I expected something else entirely.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Caroline Wintour is an excellent narrator
No changes...easy reading-spicy!
She is smooth and gives each character a voice - even the men
Adult themes and language...
I purchased this book because it was on sale but I should've listened to the first book of the series to get a better back ground on some of the other characters. Overall good story and worth the sale price. I was hooked on the story description of her being a massage therapist because I'm a massage therapist, but the story only highlights that, that's her profession, not a massage therapist turned seductress like I thought the story would be. But alas, she only seduces one client which predictably becomes her boyfriend at the end.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This is the best book in the sweet series it is also the funniest one.
