Luc's entire future is planned out - but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa, a strip club owner with whom Luc recently shared one night of wild abandon. It left Luc terrified by his loss of self-control - and Alyssa desperate for more. But Luc is not the only man desperate to have Alyssa.... And that's just one of her secrets - secrets as dark and mysterious and delicious as her fantasies.

"Spicy and fun, this romp between the sheets will thrill erotica and mystery fans alike." (Romantic Times)
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Wow! Black is getting better and better! Ok... we already know who Luc is from Decadent. Luc and Deke had the threesome with Kimber... We already know Alyssa from Wicked ties... the owner of the strip club. I vaguely remember in Decadent the mention of these to hooking up and the mention of the 6 hour romp. It did not register until now.
OMG! Black! WHAT! If you have listen to or read Decadent, Luc really has come full circle now. I love this story. Luc and Alyssa is so mismatched but so perfect and Luc... dang.. the way Black expand his character...OMG... it is sooo hot!!! If you enjoyed the smex from Wicked Ties and Decadent, well then, you will go crazy for this, plus the story is awesome too.
One fact I love about series is how they just keep going. Its like the characters just keep living.. ya know. I was wondering what was gonna happen to Luc and now I know.
Maynard is really getting up there with Xe Sands in narration. I really like her. She is very good. All her females from book to book sound the same, so I have to adjust a bit other than that... her narration is really good. Totally worth the buy/or credit...
i live in the kentucky bluegrass and enjoy coffee in the morning while listening to a great book.
it's the truth. you can't help but fall deeply in love with these characters with their broken hearts and souls, trying desperately to be mended with sex to fill their empty holes. shayla black has such a way with words and this series is beautifully written. i usually want to listen to them two or three times before "letting them go" back into the void of my listening library, it's that good. they have me captured from beginning to end. the stories are never terribly long yet shayla manages to get so much into the story.
book three is just as charming as book one, and i loved the story between Luc and Alyssa. i couldn't get enough.
I am so glad more of Shayla Black's books are coming to audible. This is a great series. I love Luc and was glad to hear his story after his part in Deke's story. Shayla Black is the master of erotica. Her books are not just a steamy love scenes but have a great story. This one keeps you guessing all the way through. Everytime you thought you knew who was causing all the problems she throws you a twist. Shayla's next book in this series comes out Nov 12 th and I can't wait to hear Hunter's Story.
This is an adult book with very erotic love scenes so please know what you are getting when you get this book and don't give bad reviews because you did not take the time to read others reviews. If you are a fan of Fifty shades of grey you will love this series and the men in this series.
Do not listen to this is a public surrounding, it starts hot and keeps you there. Luc is the man but Alyssa is a woman who wants him and will use what she has to get him. These two are the best characters in the series because their story has been building up from the others books. We know Luc has a plan and we know why, but he should have told Alyssa because she intends to rock his world. When he loses control theres only one woman who can satisfy him. I also like the introduction of our other love interest Tyler, a girl can't go wrong there.
Lot's of unexpected suspenseful events in this one, I could not predict who our main villian could be.
Delicious is another great book by Shayla Black. It is well written and very steamy, but I was beginning to tire of the guy and girl who love each other but won't admit it until there is mortal danger storyline. However, that being said, I did have a difficult time putting it down and allowing myself to sleep when appropriate. Also, I will still be continuing in the series. So, it is a conflicted feeling I review with. I still can not say enough good things about Lexi Maynard's narration of these stories. It is easy to keep track of who is talking and the voices are enjoyable. The book, although somewhat predictable was still very enjoyable and ultimately worth the credit.
Such a disappointment! Each of the main characters harbors a "secret" too horrible to confide in the other. His is explained early in the book; hers is kept a mystery. Normally this could be an okay premise, as far as steamy-sex-laden romance plots go (heck yeah, I love those scenes, too!) but rather than empathizing with the main character, I could only roll my eyes and think, really?!
He gets her pregnant, and she marries the fella to give her unborn child a two-parent home, hoping love will follow with time. When she thinks he's more interested in being a father than a husband, she leaves him. Huh? That's a big part of her reasoning to marry him in the first place! She endlessly agonizes over her undying love for him, which, due to her secret. is why she "can't" be with him. Even after her secret is revealed, she continues to agonize and "rationalizes" she cannot stay with him because she loves him so much, and loving him gives him the ability to potentially hurt her feeling IF things don't work out. Again, huh?!
The sex scenes were pretty good -- not hot or sizzling. All sex is strictly vanilla, which would have been fine, but the so-called "plot" was awful. Ms. Black is capable of much better work. This one is an embarrassment and needs a complete rewrite.
SAVE YOUR MONEY -- SKIP THIS ONE!!
Audios are more intense then print. I enjoyed both versions.
No others compares. Just listen to the entire series. They are all Deliciously good.
Lexi Maynard brought every character alive in all four audios. I can not wait for the rest of the Wicked series prints to go to audio.
Seriosly? From the start.
Hurry up and release the entire Wicked series to audio. Waiting!!!!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
I love Lexi's narration-she is spot on in each character.
While the sex scenes are very graphic...the stories woven through are suspenseful and action packed too.
Shayla Black whole series is a must read for the erotic story fan. All of her novels personal rank in the top ten of audiobooks that I have read so far.
Shayla Black sex scene are some of the most well written that I have read since joining aubible. If your a fan of a HOT SEX SCENE and who isn't MUST read !!!!!!!!!!
Lexi Maynard brought this story to life. Without great narration the story fails.
YES!!!!!!!!!!! when I wont to listen to a audio book in one sitting it a great story.
Shayla Black you go girl!!!!!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
All the emotional twists. I love how strong Alyssa is and all the things she has done with her life. I love how much Luc loves her and all he is willing to go through even when he thinks the worse. Not to mention the danger to Alyssa's life.....
Way too many to say!!
It just takes you away and you don't have to worry about turning a page.
Well worth the credit. I would recommend getting the books in order. Wicked Lovers Series: Wicked Ties, Decadent, and Delicious. All of them are great!!!!!!!!
