What would you give up for everything? Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, and sex incarnate. And he wore it all so well. From the moment his mesmerizing gaze met mine, I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I never knew I needed. He wanted to possess me, and I wanted to be his everything. All I had to do was accept what he offered. But everything has a price. The world he gave me fulfilled my wildest dreams, but would that be enough when the past crashed into the present?

Say something about yourself!
I think I have learned my lessons on trilogies. I am now going to listen to the whole thing before I write the review of book 1, hence my weird rating.
This book was great, it had twists, it was hot, it was believable...and then the massive cliffhanger and poof contrived drama that is so ridiculous I can't even do it justice.
In book one they meet they fall, they become each others world then Tristan drops a metaphoric bomb and Nina has to leave...then she gets into a crash and it wipes away her memory...how freaking convenient! Then they work through some things and poof even with the previous information she starts hunting him...and that's where book 2 leaves us...which is beyond any soap opera plot.
These books went from plausible to totally ridiculous, I will not be getting the third, wished I never got the first!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Boy..this was a really good story... I like Tristan Stone so much... He seem so mysterious...but I think he really love Ninna... he seem to fall faster than Ninna did... The whole hiding away in the country, and the contract that Ninna didn't eve read.... really held my interest... but the end... OMG! What is going to happen next... Book 2 will be on my instant download list... Great smexy time too...
Narration was done pretty well.. This is not dual narration...YES! Fox doesn't come in until the eppy... which I loved when books do it this way...b/c I hate dual narration...
Nice sale, credit.... maybe not a buy... It's over 10 bucks!
Lover of all books, especially Romance!
If you don't like cliffhangers stop reading now and don't buy this book. If you don't mind cliffhangers then buy and enjoy. It is quick paced with a solid listen. Yes it concerns a millionaire, yes it concerns a financially struggling younger girl.......twist, turns, plot thickens, its good but leaves ya hanging.......one of the worst cliffhangers I have read in a while.......
The contract by which Tristan seeks to bind Nina seems lame; a shade of that which is the centrepiece of that other book, you know the one. More surprisingly, she falls for it. Fortunately the plot redeems itself as it develops into an interesting and deeper story as the characters develop. You need to wait for the next volume to find out the full story.
Good listen and entertaining enough, maybe there is just too many of the latest romance novels I have listened to that fell into the same story line basis regardless the reasons the successful rich business man falling unexpectedly for the woman that isn't one in his elite circle.
Really Good Story
Tristan was so mysterious...and how he seem to really love Ninna .Right from the start it captured me with every word as I tried to piece together the motives, the secrets and the twists in there relationship.
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
Nina was working as a waitress at an art show when she saw Tristan, a tall, dark and handsome billionaire but he was surrounded by beautiful women and could have his pick however when their eyes met she fell deeply madly in lust/love and so starts their fragile relationship but as time went on it grew into much much more.
Right from the start this listen captured me and kept me riveted on every word as I tried to piece together the motives, the secrets and the twists and turns in Nina and Tristan's blossoming relationship. And the flawed helpless character of Tristan, whose motives and behaviour were sometimes strange, makes you melt because he only ever wanted to make Nina happy. However, as with most trilogies, there's always the threat of 'something sinister' that is going to burst the happiness bubble and when this mystery spectacularly bursts their bubble with the revelation of lies and a terrible dark secret the fall-out is catastrophic with heartbreaking consequences which leaves an OMG of a cliffhanger.
Worth a credit? This is pure fiction, there's parts in it that have you saying "as if" and "what?" and sometimes I felt like screaming at Tristan and Nina but did that detract from my enjoyment of the book? oh no, no, no, not at all as I loved the romance, the good times, the sexy times and the intense desperation they felt for each other. So YES creditworthy and I've preordered book 2 which comes out today YIPPEE so I know what I'll be listening to for the rest of the day.
I have listened to other audio books (Sons of Navarus) by Ms. Scott and she is one of my favorite authors. Her ability to bring "realism" into the plot and keep the focus on the main characters is great. She doesn't do all of her character building of the H & H in the beginning of the book but sprinkles it throughout the story to keep listeners, at least this one, intrigued and wanting to find out more.
Not only is she a very talented author but V. Meunch & C. Fox's performances were amazing. I loved that Ms. Meunch performed the female voices and Mr. Fox performed the male voices and there was no female trying to do male voices and vice versa. It sounded more real and believable. I wish that all audio narrators/performers would do the same.
This book 1 made me want to move on to the next, book 2 and I'm glad I downloaded all three books so that I could listen to them simultaneously.
Keep up the good work; can't wait for what's coming next.
yes i loved listening i can do anything and listen especially driving
it's a trilogy love story i have purchased the other 2 book on Amazon i am half finish i have not read one yet with this type of twist must read
i love both of the performers
need to get the last 2 on Audible
I started listening to this on audiobook and less than half way through I just can't. actually after about and hour I knew that there was nothing this book could do to redeem itself. you know when you look at a structure and it's not just cosmetics, but the foundation of it is flawed, well this is it.
I am not a fan of the cinderella story. the be a good girl and good things will happen and prince charming will sweep you off your feet. be a damsel, and you will be noticed and appreciated. NOPE!
so we have this girl who works at an art gallery, and a super hot guy is at an event, and her panties get all twisted up looking at him, the he shows up after closing, and is like hop in to my fancy car and I will take you home. but the entire time the conversation is about as flat as a doormat. there is nothing about this exchange that makes me think that either of these characters are very interesting. I should've quite there.
but I didn't. The conversations btw never improve. nothing is witty or sly or earth shattering.
this book is wish fulfillment, nobody girl. they have no clue what a billionaires would say or do, so they go with strong silent type, but instead it just comes off poorly. like he has absolutely zero personality what so ever.
And so we get to a sex scene. and that also falls so very flat. using words like pussy, and cock, do not make a sex scene sexy. those are shock value words. I want to feel enticed. I want to feel trapped in the moment. I want every breath, every touch, to pull at me and twist up my insides. I am not getting this.
At one point he is feeding her food. and instead of drawing out this moment, how it feels, the spoon is cool and heavy on my tongue, or whatever, we get oh that was delicious.
Or we are overlooking a city and the description we get was oh it was magnificent. see how they use big words, but with no flavour. there is no colouring here. no furniture is being rearranged inside my head. instead we are jumping from one moment to the next, the writing is about as boring as a text book.
Nothing new to add, no excellent writing, no hot erotica, no interesting characters, no plot to invest in.
Waste of a credit.
