Riley may be one of the top female mountain climbers in the world, but when testing her abilities by scaling the forbidden mountain, she encounters an adventure completely out of her control. The mountain is forbidden for a reason, and when she finds herself in unknown territory, surrounded by a mountain tribe she never knew existed, her stubbornness thrusts her further into a ritual she knows very little about. She becomes a prize in The Carnal Games - and she's not so sure she wants to be in that position, but she has no choice.

Intriguing, descriptive, short
There are many elements to this book that are memorable. The whole idea of finding Shangrala and being trapped there is interesting. There are also many groups to meet throughout the story. While I generally liked the lead character Riley, I was confused by the way she interacted with the others. Not sure I would have been so friendly. I loved the moment she has at the end. Total Girl Power!!
Really fantastic tone and delicious pace in the smexy scene. She really added action to the book with her voice. She had quite a few accents to tackle, great job keeping them distinct and consistent. I hope she stays with the books and we get to hear more of her great characterizations!
It is a very short read and terrific for listening in one sitting. You could also break it up if you wanted to. Maybe take a break after the uber smexy scene at the waterfall!
This book is mostly story with a few erotic scenes in the mix. I would not classify it as a romance at this point, no real feeling have been displayed. It also ends abruptly. It seems to be part of one book broken into a series of sections, not my favorite style. I like to get the whole story in one shot, I suck at waiting for the next book. Still it is a solid listen and I am curious to know what the games entail.
Captivating story, held my attention from start to finish. Can't wait for the game.
Clarity and personality.
Yes I would try another book.
I liked the plot of the story. The characters were believable.
calm cool vibrant
If it wasn't a cliff hanger.
This is a great story, the ending leaves you guessing and waiting for the next part.
This is the short, unfinished tale of Riley (h) and her exploits during a climbing expedition to Mount Gangkar, the forbidden mountain. With Riley, there is an international grouping of males from all continents except Africa. And there is a great amount of sexism in this story, which is a tool the author acknowledges and uses well.
This story has some of the best quickie sex scenes I’ve come across. There is no romance in them, yet there is still an underlying depth in some of the 3-4 sexual encounters. Riley is not a direct actor in all of them. The sex scenes become a little redundant, but they are so good, so explicit, so erotic, that it doesn’t matter. There is a little bit of everything, m/f vaginal intercourse, fem masturbation, male oral sex, and voyeurism.
There is also superb intrigue in the story. This intrigue is great until the end when you are left hanging, not knowing what has happened, who has won the carnal games. And the ending is a great cliffhanger. It’s a very creative story. The narrator did a good job with all of the characters.
