"Smoldering sex scenes and a cliffhanger ending will have erotica fans panting for more." (Publishers Weekly)
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
If you've got an open mind and a worthy soul then you will appreciate this book for what it is. CL Parker creates the best sex scenes and if that is what you like then this book is for you. It is jammed packed with hang your tongue out, panting, change your panties SEX. I would agree with some reviews that it has a little 50 shades vibe but there is no real BDSM in this story. So, I think Wallbanger is a better comparison. Hot, funny and a great story too. I was giggling, and sighing through the whole book!! Not to mention fanning myself from all the hotness! The book starts off when Delaine makes the ultimate sacrifice. She auctions herself off at Chicago’s most exclusive erotic club. Now she belongs to Noah Crawford, a young wealthy mogul who introduces her to a seductive world that awaken desires she only dreamed about. Noah doesn’t know why Delaine sold her body for a cool two mil. But it’s the perfect business arrangement. The inexperienced beauty will learn to satisfy his every sensual need, yet never touch his heart. Almost immediately their relationship generates heat—in more ways than one. Noah's character is easy to like and Delaine's inner monologue is extremely funny. When they fight, they take no prisoners. When they love, they show no mercy. When they’re together, they never want to leave each other’s arms. But soon, their intense, physical bond will take an unexpected turn—evolving into something neither has bargained for: the promise of a lasting love. I really enjoyed the slight different plot. The characters are great, there's some interesting supporting casts too – Polly for one! She's like a tornado! I'm looking forward to more from Noah and Lanie. Stars: a solid four – great book :) The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is the darn cliffhanger!
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
love the intense love making between these two. Sooo good.
It reminds me of Bared to You and 50 shades. We even got some Twilight goodies in here.. Yep some deep Vamp sex but with no vampires. Gotta read!!!. . Sooo good.
HOT, EXPRESSIVE, and SHE TALKED TO FAST. Slow down girl.
Yes, several ones. I love the way she Laney told Polly how they met. and how he met Laney.. Also Noah told Polly Laney had a sex change, from male to female, that is why he spent 2 million dollars.. Polly is his office manager and keeps his life straight. Polly could get away with anything with Noah.. that was why he spent the money.. I was dying. Also Laney told Polly she met Noah at a male strip club. I laughed at that girl..but she could not tell the truth. The best is why Laney told his cousin to jump if she felt Foggy.. She could take anyone on. And meant it. She was hard to read. She could fool anyone. They love to tease each other and others as well... Nope she was not having that. And got him right in the heart over that one. Also I love the way she can hold her own with this man.. She knew how to piss him off.. I loved the shopping with the Bi-sexual women..she was hot over that as well.. just over her undies.. A lot of good things in here.. to many for me to go over..
Let me say this.. If you handle the language and cussing in the biblical sense, (Personally I can handle any words but the one that cusses God very badly..its was used a lot in this book. I mean I expect it but not right behind each other several times..over and over again.. I can keep the erotic words and love hearing them,,but cussing God..come on. I just never heard that growing up and it's instilled in me. But the rest, I have not problem with.. Just the G-D word used over and over.. made me want to stop it.). Be warned, The erotica is this. is Hot and Heavy. And some new ones that I just adored for pet names for her and his body parts. WE have a lot of talking to each other during sex here, A REAL Turn on... the talking during love making is hot a great foreplay and he knows how to use it. And if you care for that..this books is for YOU. Oh my it's so there., This is a great romance erotic book. BDSM is in here, and I could almost do without that sometimes, when you just read one that was full of it. During sex, I learned some new words for the women's and man's sexual organs..New ones.. Yeah!!!,,,you can read and figure what they are talking about.... they did some great explaining and talking, loved that. and this book made the grade. In short, as it describes a lot, she is a virgin so you get a lot of details. HOT. And he is well endowed and that becomes a problem.. but a good one . So in the beginning. she sells her virgin body for a large amount of money for a good reason. But what you don't know is that this man has been hurt badly through over a couple of things, and takes it out of her body. And then he just becomes aware that she is not there to be hurt, for what he's been thru but she grows on him and he only want to care for her and she just reminds him she is an employee. and he wants to be more now. She don't care for it and it becomes a duel that is sexy and funny.. She don't mind that he is trying to help she would rather just be a big thorn in his side and make is difficult for him to be humble at times.. And then she feels for him, and it becomes a beautiful story.\ They can't seem to be without each other. Amazing how his KITTEN ( his pet name) can calm him down, She learns to say I'm sorry, but he suspects something is Wrong with his Hell Cat. The, story takes a turn and that is what I liked about this book. I got to keep my mind on just these two. It's just them..He even likes him large mansion to himself at night,, just for the two of them.. Now, that is super cool.. He like her to himself.
These books are getting harder and harder to find on Audible. I love them and think I have them all in my library and if not for some I keep up with I would not see the recommendations, I would not of found this..And listeners thanks for saying if you like these type of books, I adore them.It's a Hot story.Wish we had a way to notify each other to let them know this is one to read.. I hate taking chances and being so bored.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
Delaine drove me nuts, she was way to winey for my taste. I found myself forwarding through her parts.
I did like both narrators, they were what made this book.
Maybe it's this type of book has been done over and over and this wasn't anything unique for me or it was the wish washy characters but I couldn't get into this book or even finish the book.
I would only recommend this book when the 2nd is completed. The way the author leaves you hanging is made it a bad listen for me!
Rocckwell Davis is good Rubyyy Jones is just so-so and not very believable,
A less cliff hanging ending. Probably the worst ending book in my expierence.
If this is your genre, you will enjoy the story. Narration can make or break a book. Please don't give me some old geyser narrating the part of a twenty or thirty something man, it's just creepy. Rockwell Davis does a fabulous job here. He is Noah! Rubyy Jones narration is on point. Let's face it, she's a young girl and so the voice a great match. . I like the fact that she is no doormat and understands her role in this relationship quite well. What I want to say is she is young, but definitely not dumb. Lainey really gives Noah a run for his money. The story is the the story with a believable premise, and it is entertaining. It was well worth the credit and yes I would definitely the next book.
There have been a lot of positive reviews on audible and so I went with the book on a whim. Overall the story was a good listen and I enjoyed it. Part way through I read the reviews on GoodReads and they were not as favourable. The part of negative reviews I understood the most was around narration. I struggled with Rubyy Jones’ narration of Delaine. She sounded too young and immature. I think that some of the authors' writing was not as funny because the character sounded too young. However, Rockwell Davis was a great hit for me. I actually looked to see if he had more books to listen to and was disappointed to see that he did not. I wish he had narrated the entire story. As for the storyline, it was good but could have used some more plot twists. It was simple. Billionaire wants sex slave, buys her and falls in love. I did enjoy when Delaine got feisty and stood her ground. This book has just enough to keep you listening and wanting more. Nevertheless, I still really liked the novel. I am going to get the next one and hope that the narrator is different for the female character. I also hope audible does not take forever getting it in audio format. So for me it was a hit overall as long as you are not looking for something wild and new it is just a good, enjoyable listen that keeps you interested all the way along. But please C.L Parker, get rid of Rubyy Jones. I am glad I used a credit for this book.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Caveat emptor - buyer beware and Billionaire Noah should have heeded this immortal Latin phrase when he went to an Auction looking for a woman that would be playable, manageable and above all.... forgettable. What a refreshing and different take on the usual Billionaire love story and it had me glued to, and eagerly waiting to devour, every Chapter. C. L. Parker has written a book that was initially, and briefly, sad but she managed to turn it into a funny, hot, playful, romantic and sizzling story of mind games.
Mind games that soon turned into sex games and the sex games brought in emotions..... emotions that the very sexy, handsome and hung Noah wasn't expecting and hadn't wanted. Nor too was the sacrificial virginal Delaine expecting them either or the fact that her very talented Teacher Noah awakened desires in her she never knew existed and then feelings she tried to dampen. But their relationship was a powder keg just waiting to explode..... and explode it did with a feral lightening filled bang, a beautiful aftermath and a devastating heartbreaking cliffhanger.
There is also a sub-plot of a greedy slime-bag of a Partner plotting and waiting for his chance to take over the Company, drama as jealousy rears its green eyed head and some great secondary characters.
This listen was such a surprise to me, it had mixed reviews, however I just couldn't get enough of it. And the internal monologues with her lady parts were inspired and simply hilarious. My only complaint was the narration - Rockwell's was sexy, age appropriate and absolutely perfect however Rubyyy's voice was that of a teen or even a tween which didn't fit at all in the dual POV narration.
Worth a credit? Oh boy is it ever and joy of joys book 2 is here so no waiting, no counting the weeks days then hours..... no, instead I can blissfully jump straight to it to join in all the forthcoming heavenly (and hopefully sinful) action yet to come.
Wild about books.
Something fresh and new. You don't need for me to tell you the plot, that pops up when you check out the book. What I do need to say is if you sometimes need a little fresh air in your book this is it. Not the same old words, It is a fresh way to get your fix. Lany and Noah are not scared to the point they can't every have a normal life. There is joy, jokes, sex, and a great time to be had. If Lany talkes to fast for you reset her to a 0.5. It works great. Lany talks to herself the way a real person would. I don't have to hear the same old words to know what she is talking about. It made me laugh, and think. Which is hard to do since most books like this, well you know how it is, you just don't have to think. You just have to fan or put in the new batteries. Yep I said it, " new batteries". The trick here is you get someone to hate and its not one of the main characters and someone you might wish was there so you could laugh. David and Polly fit the bill. This is a Calgon book. So give up the credit and let it take you away.
FYI: Don't listen to this in the tub, I almost drowned!!!!!!
I am an ICU RN and listening to books is my get away from the stress of my job and life in general. I love Audible!!!
I have to be honest when listening to the first chapter I was skeptical if I were going to like this book but now I am on Chapter 4 and I have already decided it's going to be a winner!!! Again was not crazy about the female narrator but she is growing on me. This book has sassiness, sensualness, romance, and great sex scenes!!! Can't wait to get all the way through it.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
Clearly I am in the minority here, but I just didn't enjoy this as much as everyone else did. I think the theme is a bit overdone for me (billionaire meets virgin scenario). Don't get me wrong, this book has plenty of smexy parts which I enjoyed but I just need a bit more plot.
I also did not like the narration or the immature dialogue by Delaine (Agent Coochie anyone?). I understand the author did it to be funny but it just wasn’t my thing. Most narration doesn’t really bother me but Rubyyy Jones coupled with the bad dialogue certainly didn’t add to the experience.
Overall most fans of Erotica will probably enjoy this one (given all the positive reviews) but for me it just wasn't credit worthy enough.
