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.

"A wicked, sensual thrill from first page to last. I loved it!" (Lora Leigh, author of the Breeds series)
it's the best way to spend a working day, and i'm thankful my job is one where i can listen to books all day long.
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.
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.....
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.
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.
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!
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.
Yes I've read other stuff of hers that I like but I won't be continuing this series.
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.
Bookstore hobby-jobber, mom, gardener and former copywriter. Eclectic taste in books and audits.
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.
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.
The detailed description of their relationship. 99% talk about sex
There should have been a better storyline in this book
yes and no
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!
Say something about yourself!
I usually do the romance thing...but after 50, and then bared to you I was curious, so since there is a category for Erotica why not try it. I REALLY was not disappointed! I was very concerned that this book would be some weak plotted porno like novel, but the characters had structure and depth, there WAS a plot, and I have to say it was even a plausible plot...you could feel the characters indecision, feel their angst...it was a good book, and a steamy one. I was also scared by the idea of an accent being used in the book...but the narrator did a great job! All the characters voices were very clear, and discernible. Overall I have to say this is a really good book IF you want to read something steamy about a Dom and a possible Sub, if you are looking for erotic light…probably not the book for you.
