Gretchen Williams had finally been offered her dream job. After years of writing - screenplays, various freelance jobs, and erotic spanking romance - one of her book series had been adapted for television. She had been over the moon at the invitation to join the crew on set and overlook day to day operations.
Of course she never expected to wind up as the whipping girl. The main actress balked at the idea of a hand coming anywhere near her perfect round behind, and after some deliberations Gretchen offers up her derriere for showbiz. She never dreamed her bottom would be on display for everyone to see, but the bigger problem is the sudden attention from the male lead actor.
Tristan Callahan knew exactly what he was signing up for when he accepted the contract for a one year term, tentative for a second season at best. The subject matter appealed to him for a variety of reasons, ones he kept to himself. Until Gretchen throws a temper tantrum like a true diva. He takes her in hand, right in her own trailer, proving that he's been doing very little acting so far.
They embark into a secret D/s relationship.
When photos of them together at a local BDSM dungeon surface and leak to the media, they find themselves with tough choices to make. Will their relationship overcome the scandal or is Gretchen doomed to say goodbye to Tristan in true Hollywood fashion?

Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not.
I really liked this short, steamy romance. The premise of a writer ending up as a body double on the set of the show based on her book was cool. At first, it seemed like this would be a superficial relationship, but it developed and grew into more.
The narrator did a really good job overall. His male and female voices are good and believable. His inflection was really good most of the time. It did seem like he would pause here and there, probably because he was turning a page or just having a bit of a struggle with a sentence. Not a huge deal, but I did notice it. His pronunciation, enunciation and feel for the material was good.
I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
Gretchen, the female lead, is an erotic book author.
Her book has just been picked up to be turned into a television series.
She has been invited to the set and unbeknownst to her,
she has been selected as the "butt double" for the main actress.
Tristan, the male lead, and actor on the set, is attracted to Gretchen immediately and thinks that she will fit in well with his "lifestyle".
Overall, the book was entertaining and not as "extreme" as I thought when I started
Augustine Poe did well with the narration, his voice was a good pitch for the female leads, not too high.

This story had potential if the main heroine wasn't so whiny. As a dominant and sub story it lack something. Nonetheless it was a good listen. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
I love books especially romances and mysteries. I enjoy sharing a good story. I have been receiving and reviewing ARCs for years.
I absolutely loved this book when I first read it and the naration made it even more fun to experience Gretchen and Tristen's story. The storyline was fun and the dialogue smart with an Alpha male who was both strong and sensitive who really knew how to care for his leading lady who was equal parts insecure and sassy and oftentimes naughty.
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
Gretchen is an erotic spanking romance writer (who knew that was a thing?) that was asked to oversee the production of her books being made into film. The leading actor, Tristan, is hot and as it turns out... Not so much acting.
Tristan turns out to be exactly what Gretchen needs since she can't seem to get her life together and they embark on a d/s relationship.
I enjoyed this listen. I thought it was fun and not super angsty. The narration was great and it was the perfect length. Definitely credit worthy.
I was gifted a review copy of this audiobook by the author via Audiobook Boom.
Yes I would, I may not have found this one to my liking but it certainly wouldn't stop me from listening/reading another one of their books
Not sure that I would as I found the audio didn't flow for me, the editing was obvious and it altered the flow of the story. The writing could also be improved in my opinion, as I didn't find it flued when reading/listening.
This is difficult for me to comment on due to the fact the the audio has a few too many editing interruptions, and it was very obvious when corrections had been made. This really shouldn't take away from Augustine Poe's performance as I don't think he has much control over editing. All in all I enjoyed his performance.
I really can't see that, mainly due to my audio experience. But hey, others that read/listen to this may very well invision the whole movie/TV thing.
Everything I expressed above I do so with respect to the author and narrator, I hope my words have not offended either.
