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.

    "worth the credit!"

    i suppose you could say i'm on an erotica kick right now, having finished Fifty Shades and wanting more, i turned to Bared to You, but even that wasn't enough. so i did a little searching online and Wicked Ties was the next recommendation.

    my oh my! what a fun read. and yes people, it's not exactly the most plausible storyline out there, but in terms of a fun escape, this did it for me. it was fun how the two ended up completely alone, having only each other to explore. loved every minute of it, and have listened to it twice.

    it was wonderfully sweet moments, and it made me giggle in a few places too. the narration is terrific. so i gave it five stars. definitely worth the credit.

    "I love a man with a potty mouth......."

    This book is amazingly hot....and naughty....and hot....and well read...and hot....and suspensful...and hot. Did I mention it was hot? Not like jalepeno pepper hot.....like Vindaloo curry hot.

    There is an art to talking dirty...and Jack Cole has it down to a science.....

    "WOW! I love Shayla Black!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely worth the credit for me. This book has everything I look for in an audiobook and more. I like romance with a touch of hot sex in the mix and this book has that in spades. This audiobook is also long enough to let the reader get to know both main characters and give a believable and interesting storyline along with the hot sex. It's a delicate balancing act, something a lot of books I've listened to have failed to achieve.

    "Listened til it was done"

    Absolutely loved this book. You get totally wrapped up in these characters, and their inner thoughts, that you can't quit listening. Luckily, I had the time away from work, that I didn't have to give it a break. If you liked "Fifty Shades of Grey", you will like this book. It's full of suspense, mystery, and sexual self exploration. Is well worth the listen.

    "Wow! Where's The Batteries Needed Warning?"

    I was going through Fifty Shades withdrawal, no new books from authors I know I love and cherish, so I was just searching through recommendations on My Listener Page when I read a few reviews for this series. Finding a good erotica book that has a story to it and is well written is hard to do so I was half way expecting to be returning the book.

    I must say that I will NOT be returning and in fact have turned around and bought the second book in the series as soon as the first one finished playing! I am hooked and I do hope there are more books in the series coming along.

    Being as I came to listen to the book with no real expectations, I can not tell you how pleased I am that I listened to the recommendations of others.... not something that I usually do since most of the books I've come to love get very mixed reviews.

    I won't give away anything of the story other than to say that if you are going through Fifty Shades of Withdrawal, this book will heat you up and more than cure any withdrawal symptoms you may be facing! I know it MORE than worked for me!

    "This is more like a audio porn than a actual story"
    What did you like best about Wicked Ties? What did you like least?

    The detailed description of their relationship. 99% talk about sex


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    There should have been a better storyline in this book


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

    Jack


    Was Wicked Ties worth the listening time?

    yes and no


    Any additional comments?

    It was nice to listen too but even me who loved 50 Shades of Gray and other similar books was a little surprised about all the detailed sex scenes. Dont give me wrong i love to hear about those details too BUT not 80% of the book and 20% storyline!

    "Ok... A bit of an eye roller"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. The story line was good but it was a little sappy and it seemed like the emotions were a little extreme. Also it was like shayla black was trying to describe and defend the a Dom/sub relationship. That got on my nerves. She kept repeating herself that it wasn't wrong or unhealthy. Yea I got that the first 10 times. I know the character was a reluctant sub but still....I want to read about the relationship not have the psychological factors explained over and over.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Shayla Black? Why or why not?

    Yes I've read other stuff of hers that I like but I won't be continuing this series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was at the bed and breakfast when the main character gets taken by both men and has the final showdown with her stalker.


    Was Wicked Ties worth the listening time?

    eh...

    "Awful"

    Loaded with puerile mind-chatter, absolutely yawn-worthy smex and a limited storyline, this is a marketing ploy with no substance. The plot is so thin in between, graphic and boring sex scenes, I forced myself to finish the listen. Sophomoric vocabulary, crap research ( when does a hospital release someone from surgery and 20 minutes later say the person will be 'fine?') and one week after a gsw, pacing, able to strap into a seatbelt and accept full hugs. Not worth credit or sale.

    "You're not the boss of me"

    I am always excited to find a steamy romance with great reviews. I simply can't get into this. I can see that bondage might be fun, but "Yes, sir." "May I speak, sir?" in the bedroom? Forget it. The whole idea turns me off. I'm sure its great if you are into that kind of thing. I prefer a Lisa Kleypas or Nora Roberts.

    "Good Story and a lot of HOT!!"

    Another series to rival Fifty Shades of Grey. If are looking for some more books with the same type of theme this is another good series to try. Right now only the first two books are out on audible but I sent a message to author about the rest of her books and she is in the process of getting the rest of series out on audible. Books 3 and 4 are due out in the next month.

    This series is a lot like the Sweet series by Maya Banks. You really fall in love with all the guys of the series. In a future book all the couples come back together. I am really looking forward for more of the books in this series.

    Again these books are graphic so if you are not looking for this kind of read don't get the books. I hate to see a bad review just because people did not read the reviews and when they fuss about the sex scenes. I mean come on it is not fair to give a bad review if you did not read the reviews first to find out what you are reading is not for you in the first place.
