Dr. Shelly Monroe is a woman who doesn't shy away from going after what she wants, but lately good sex has been hard to find. Shelly's become increasingly frustrated with the men she's been dating and the men she believes are the right choice.Joshua Daniels is certainly not even close to the right choice. In fact, he is exactly the wrong choice. For one thing, he's Mason Langley's best friend and best man. Second, he's too much of a risky complication for Shelly to even consider.
Then why can't she stop thinking about how delicious he looked that first night she met him at Exquisite? Why is it so imperative to keep her lusty desire for a man that doesn't meet her preconceived mold hidden from Lena and Mason, her trusted friends?It seems unreasonable that being with a man completely wrong in theory could somehow feel so right. Then why is it the more she sees him the more enticing he becomes?

Loved this sexy story. The last few chapters of waiting could have been a bit less, but overall that didn't detract from the story. Josh and Shelly's love story is one so many people can relate to. Loving in fear. Their emotions were raw and real, and the narrator did a great job of bringing that to life. Moving on to Edible....
The author that wrote this series, loves the word "however". The story is good. There is some less "however" than was in Exquisite. It bothered me, it may not bother others.
Great Romantic Read
How well the characters were developed
Her voice is easy to listen to.
Yes, very much so!
It was kinda slow in parts but overall I enjoyed the story. It could have had better sex scenes for my taste but that's just me
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
In this second instalment from the Exquisite series we meet most of the characters from book 1 and a new arrival - Mason's best friend Josh who has come to work for him and be his Best Man. Handsome, sexy and drool-worthy Josh was fed up with the usual type of beautiful man-eaters that he normally goes for and has got a wounded heart to show for it and he secretly longs for what Mason's got with Lena.... a deep undying love for someone and a HEA ending.
As soon as he sets eyes on Lena's friend Shelly he knows he has to stay clear of her because she falls right into the man-eater category but fate, and their sizzling chemistry, had other ideas. Shelly is also getting over a wounded heart and is determined to stay clear of gorgeous men that looked, walked and talked like Josh but the more her mind kept saying "no, don't go there, he's trouble" the more her libido would say "hell yes, what's the harm" and "he's hot so why not" and so, in the end, her libido won - after all what's the harm in a no strings casual but very hot fling right? X wrong. However, patient Josh goes along with their deal but eventually he wants more.... a beautiful new future for them both but if he can't break down Shelly's long erected defences then he'll have to go it alone but he doesn't want to give up trying..... until, in the end, he's left with no other choice.
The well-written storyline flows along nicely with witty banter, sensual sexual chemistry, passion, steamy sex scenes, some wonderful romantic and sexy dialogue, genuine intense emotions and passionate heartbreaking pleas makes this an awesome and sweet listen. It also brings up-to-date news of familiar well loved characters like Mason and Lena and adds new ones ready for book 3.
Worth a credit? Well they both said "never again" but I'm grateful that the talented Author changed their minds and they took the risk just one more time to give us this emotional, touching and very entertaining listen. A perfect hero dripping in sex-appeal, a flawed couple that are perfect for each other and a perfect love story makes this a perfect way to use a credit.
Expected better character development. Oh well. Not certain if this is worthy of a credit. Fairly predictable but enjoyed strength of Joshua. Shelley was a drip and not appealing. Too many descriptions of her eyes, her hair, her...blah, blah. Drama queen with daddy issues. Yawn. Steam-scenes were sadly, the highlights. Narrator sounded bored too. The follow-up to Exquisite -- Entice is not.
I read the first book in this series and loved it, so I thought I would listen to the second book. I couldn't even finish listening to the book (believe me I tried). The narrators voice is so nasally. It didn't fit the character
Yes, if another narrator was reading the book
What I learned from this experience was not to go with just reading the reviews, you really need to listen to the sound bite. If I had listened to the sound bite, I wouldn't have purchased this book regardless of the great reviews.
