    "Lots of love and suspense all in one !!!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The passion between Luc and Alyssa....wow ....then of course her past and the suspense.


    What does Lexi Maynard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a great job narrating , brings characters to life and makes them real.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely ...could not wait for the next page , kept you wondering.


    Any additional comments?

    This 3rd book in the series was GREAT! Loved Book 1 ....Jack , oh my .....Liked book 2 , but not as good .....and the 3rd was a great way to wrap it up ....the best one !

    "Entertaining and hot"

    I loved the main protagonist : strong woman, smart; but that guy...Luc, just got on my nerves at the beginning. Slow learner, manipulative, selfish and judgmental...

    but, he has some tricks up his sleeves witch made the "sexy times" very hot!

    There is a clear pattern in these series, but I'm not here to analyze them...It is internaining, clever at times, and the sex scenes are imaginative...and that's what I was looking forward to. So yes, I would recommend this book 😘

    "Boring and predictable."

    Blah. Couldn't wait for this book to be over. I will never pick another book by this reader! Characters are phony and predictable and all the things you hate in a book. Don't waste a credit.

    "No menage this time around!"

    #3 is much like #1 and #2...damsel in distress saved by the hunk she blew off, as in broke up with. This listen would be good with about 4 hours less of repetition and thinking among the characters. The narrator was good and of course there were multiple very hot sex scenes. If you've listened to the others, expect much of the same.

    "LIKE THE STORY, NOT THE CHARACTERS"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I really like the story! I just wish I like the characters as much. Thru most of the book I wanted to strangle either Alyssa or Luc & down right hit Tyler with a bat repeatedly!!


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

    I understand the character's emotions & backstories are the heart of the book, but making them a little more likable to each other would have been nice for the reader.


    What does Lexi Maynard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brought the character to life for me & did a great job of it, so much the character's personalities made me want to scream at them!


    Did Delicious inspire you to do anything?

    mmmm NO!! Maybe read the next book, but that's it...


    Any additional comments?

    I would have had Luc take more action when it came to Tyler & Alyssa's relationship. If the roles had been reserved Alyssa wouldn't have stand for all the personal touching they did.

    Story
    "My favorite in the series thus far."
    Where does Delicious rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    it's an 9 out of 10..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alyssa and Luke.. What a power couple. You have two people who are fighting their own demands and yet a drawn to each other. Alyssa was true surprise, she is a survivor, loving, well educated and ambitious and Like is talented, loving, and compassionate.

    The combination of the two of them is powerful, exciting and erotic. To have a love like they have after all the drama would be awesome to have.


    What does Lexi Maynard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dramatic, good story teller.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a lot of laughs and tears but most of all I felt it was a story that developed when Luke and Alyssa agreed to share a night full of erotic passion. Alyssa couldn't get enough and Luke was afraid to admit he wanted someone like her.

    I think it was a slap in the face to Luke when Alyssa turned to Tyler after being attacked by Peter..

    Overall this book brought two people together demands and all with their past and built a loving and passionate relationship for their future.

    Awesome book in the series

    "I wanted to kill the hero!"

    Dude what an a$$! Luc made me crazy! With all the back and forth I really felt for Alyssa in this book. I wanted to kick him in the nuts and tell him to just leave her the hell alone! Yes, okay so he was there for her and all that, it was hot but I seriously cried for her more than once. (I'm not one to cry). Her emotional upheaval was mind boggling! He ended up changing enough for me not to want to kill him. I really like Alyssa, she was full of fire and sass. A great combination! Though she seemed self assured and strong on the outside we got to see into her heart and her completely vulnerable side which was awesome! What a stand up human being!

    Overall, book was good, great even just Luc made me crazy, but I guess that is what really makes it great, I was completely emotionally involved in this one.

    "Hard to put down, but . . ."
    What made the experience of listening to Delicious the most enjoyable?

    Hot sex and a good mystery. There was plenty of action to advance the plot.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Alyssa's character was very appealing in her determination to succeed despite all the hardship in her life. She busted stereotypes and was someone I could feel empathy for. That she could feel love for a strong man after what had been done to her speaks volumes for her resilience.I was extremely irritated with Luc. His stubborn refusal to believe in Alyssa's fidelity and to believe the baby was his, over and over again, made me grit my teeth at times. I suppose he had too much going on to get re-tested sooner or it might have been difficult to keep the plot going without his attitude issues, but about the only downside to the book from my perspective.


    Any additional comments?

    I found it very interesting that a man had the urge to be a father like some women have the urge to be a mother. I felt it from a young age and tried to explain it to a friend who'd never felt it. (Not an easy task.) I've never known a man to have felt that same (or similar) urge.

    "Simply Irresistibly Delicious!!!"

    Delicious is not so simple when you factor in lies, deception and misdirection. Nothing about Alyssa and Luc’s meeting is conventional. So it stands to reason that there coming together as a couple would have some challenges as well. Both of them are content to live with the demons of their past; not once thinking about the direct affect their choices would have on their future.

    Delicious is one of the best books in the series to me. There is still the same intensity and steamy sex scenes as the rest of the series, but I could really relate to the different difficult challenges in developing and maintaining the relationship. I also like how the author infused favorite characters from the previous books in the series to give the reader an update on their comings and goings and also to show their direct relationships to each other.

    My favorite character in this book is Tyler. His devotion to Alyssa was obvious in that it was unclear if he was the good guy or the bad guy. Tyler’s deception was knowing he had a secret so big that he could alter Alyssa’s life and his possible future with her. He gives a lot of misdirection to Luc purposely to misconceive Luc’s thoughts about Alyssa. Luc falls for the deception as Tyler fuels his jealousy with taunts and very inappropriate gestures. Tyler is clearly the next character in the series.

    Lexi Maynard is a very good narrator. In the beginning I didn’t think it would be possible for her to keep up with all the male voices, but Lexi holds her own and has done a very good job. I don’t know if I would continue to listen if there was a sudden change. I still recommend the Wicked Lover series as a good read.

    Story
    "Narration takes some getting used to; Story was OK"

    I wasn't a big fan of Lexi Maynard's narration but it grew on me. I thought she sounded too young (too YA-sounding for this type of novel) and she made all the female characters' voice too high and ditzy-ish.

    I would've preferred Clarissa Knightly or Jill Redfield--from all the "more steamier" romances I've listened to so far, they do the best narration for these type of novels.

    I've been wanting to check out this series because I heard great things about the author. But since menage and hardcore BDSM are not my cup of tea, I skipped the first 2 books in the series. When I heard this one featured a monogamous couple, I picked it up. It can be read as a standalone.

    The book overall was a good read (or in this case, listen). I really liked Alyssa's character and how independent, self-sufficient and strong she was. As for Luc, his jealously, how he judged Alyssa because of her profession (she's a stripper) and his unwavering belief that Alyssa was having an affair with her bodyguard Tyler got old really fast. I was annoyed by him for most of the book and I wish he groveled more in the end.

    As for the "mystery" part, I was easy to figure out early on. But, jeez, there were so many scums were after Alyssa! I felt really bad for her--the author really made her suffer in this novel with emotionally with Luc's judgmental words and actions and with all the bad men after her. There was an almost rape scene that was pretty graphic so be warned if you're the type to avoid books with that.

    I'm considering getting the other book in the series with a monogamous couple, Mine to Hold, which is Tyler's book.
