In the introduction Tyler notes, "This is a novel with me at the center. That is, my heroine is based on me. I’ve sketched her with broad strokes, but at our core we are the same. She’s gotten herself entwined with an older man - nothing new there. But now she has to learn how to maneuver a 24/7 relationship."

    "Alison Tyler "Her Life""
    Where does The Delicious Torment rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Alison Tyler's Second book in a series loosely based on her life. The first book "Dark Secret Love", was wonderful which leads you to this book. If you are not into the BDSM, or S&M Erotica genre then you may find this disturbing, however this is more of what 50 Shades of Gray SHOULD have been. Know one writes about the genre better than Ms Tyler, she lives the life and has the gift of words to express the true feelings of a submissive in a relationship. She is also able to express the Dominant's as well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Samantha (Alison) she learns to who she is and is not afraid to express what she wants. Yes it is not what others would call a "NORMAL" relationship.... but that doesn't work for every one. As long as there are consenting adults who truly care about the feelings of each other. How love is expressed doesn't matter to any one except those in that relationship.....Ms Tyler truly helps you understand this about those who desire a BDSM relationship.


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

    I never heard her before however she expressed the emotions, conflicts and characters very well in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Alison Tyler is one of the top writers of erotica and BDSM S&M erotica. She lives the life style and is a true word smith. I have read many of her stories of all kinds and no matter what her topic in erotica she writes with emotion and knowledge. (sometime a laugh as well) Looking forward to the next book in this series.

    "The real deal!"

    Very realistic BDSM, based on real life experience. I liked book #1 and enjoyed this one too, it was hard to put down. There is a #3 and I plan on listening to it too.

    "Even better than the first!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this. Also the first book in this series, Dark Secret Love. These are my 2 favorite books in recent memory.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrative of the main character. So well done, Feels like you are there in the moment with the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Don't want to give away any spoilers.. But, The sex scenes between the 3 main characters are outstanding!


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

    Absolutely! Listened to it while at work. Very exciting


    Any additional comments?

    Can not wait for the third installment of this series!

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "Terrible Narration"

    This book was so much harder to listen to than the first book in this series, Dark Secret Love. Tyler states at the beginning of each book that while they are fiction they are highly autobiographical. So I approached them both from with a level of seriousness. While the narrator on Dark Secret Love wasn't one of my favorites, she did a credible job. Her narration gave the book weight. She took the content seriously.

    The narrator of The Delicious Torment sounded like she was reading letters to Penthouse. She had the whole "I'm trying really hard to sound sexy, but I just sound incredibly silly" thing going. And she sounded silly all the time, whether the text warranted it or not. I assume since Ms. Tyler goes to great lengths to tell her readers that much of the plot reflects her own life, she would like the book to be taken somewhat seriously. But with this narrator, that won't happen. Rather than hearing an author's honest exploration of her somewhat unique sexual lifestyle, we got someone auditioning for Girls Gone Wild or to be a phone-sex worker.

    Putting aside what I thought was a totally inappropriate approach to narrating the main character, Ms. Falcon also does a terrible job with the male voices.

    I did not enjoy this book as much as I did the first book in this series. I think I would have, with a different narrator. As it stands now, if you want to read this - get it on your Kindle and avoid the audiobook.
