Publisher's Summary

When a stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her, cable sex-talk-show host Morgan O'Malley turns to Jack Cole - a self-proclaimed dominant - for help. Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what's more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it and how she starts to crave his masterful touch. A willing player in Jack's games, Morgan knows that his motives aren't pure. But she has no idea how personal they are.

    "Jack cole was everything you want in a dom"

    great guy, good sex , annoyed with the leading lady. Morgan fought him at every, turn which when your reading a story for the unrealistic sex and situations, can get very tiring.

    Story
    "Almost good book"

    The characters (both main and supporting) were interesting, the dialogue was snappy, and the plot could have been interesting & suspenseful. Both the writer and narrator are extremely talented. I tried to ignore the dom/sub stuff, which wasn't hard core, but I got bored with the emphasis on "toys and play". I kept wondering if Jack & Morgan could actually enjoy sex if stranded on deserted island without ropes, clamps, etc.

    "WOW! What a listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wicked Ties to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book, but I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It had a good plot that had a bit of a surprise ending. But the sex scenes, Wow! The narrator did an excellent job.


    Which character – as performed by Lexi Maynard – was your favorite?

    I have to say Jack was my favorite character. Lexi did a wonderful job on all of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    If you don't like detailed sex scenes, this is not the book for you.

    I just enojy audible books and I get through them faster than reading.

    Line of Fire.

    I love a good book, but never have time to sit and read. Audible is wonderful for people like me. Even though my kids think I am a nerd for always having my headphones on, someday they will wish their college books were on audible!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Narrator was great, but I wasn't very impressed with the storyline. Not sure if I will finish the series.

    Story
    "Not what I expected!!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who wants xxx-rated in audio form


    Would you ever listen to anything by Shayla Black again?

    Not if the rest of her books are like this one


    How could the performance have been better?

    If she had stayed with the plot instead of going left turning to sex right off. That was a major turn off. I love great sex in any books but they need to have a plot behind it. How can someone be chased and shot at one moment then be in the midst of sex the next while the shooter/stalker is in the same building as you.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment
