Publisher's Summary

Being dumped by her fiancé weeks before the wedding left Ashanti feeling unattractive and insecure. She was at the bottom of a low when her girlfriends convinced her a night out of partying and dancing would help to lift her spirits.

Little did she know she would meet the man of her dreams.

Not only was Hawk Malone a Marine, he was drop-dead gorgeous and, best of all, he wanted her! It was like a perfect fantasy come true...almost too perfect, in fact. But Ashanti was too far gone to worry about the clear warning signs. For the first time in a long time, she felt truly desirable and there was no telling what the resultant euphoria would make her do....

Warning: This 22,700-word story contains a steamy romance between a young black woman and a gorgeous Marine and explicit scenes too passionate for some listeners to handle!

    "This is one of the hottest, sexiest books ever!"

    This book is so hot I almost cinged my fingers on my kindle while reading it! Hawk and Ashanti are hotter than hot! Love the story! The sexy Marine and the beautiful, recently dumped business owner have a one-night stand that turns both their lives upside down! The story was cool and fun, the writing is well-paced, and the sex scenes are explosively hot! Loved it! Dez has a fan for life in this reader. Pepper L. does an amazing job reading this!

    Story
    "Erotic and commanding"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    In traditional book format, not audible. I did not like the narration at all. There were moments when the pitch of the narrator, giving the protagonist a voice, would become shrill. Then the way she pronounced or enunciated certain words was irritating. Reading it would have probably been easier.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Actually, none. Hawk's constant use of the word babe was annoying and out of place. Ashanti is not a good name, but I do kind of like her. Bertha is not a good name as well for someone supposedly in her 20's or 30's.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    sound of voice, shrill sounding at times, the way she enunciated certain words was annoying. She stressed words that probably should have been stressed to make or emphasis a point, but she did the opposite. The voice of the characters were not good or convincing. I realize this is a very difficult job, rather than attempt and fail, it may just be better to give all of the characters the same voice. Maybe, this would be better.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I do like the erotic parts though. There was definitely chemistry between the protagonist and her love interest.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was some background build up of the characters and some depth to the book. But, it's a short story and this is what it was meant to do...entertain.
