In this New York Times best-selling erotic trilogy, a buttoned-up businesswoman takes her friend's advice and has a fling with a stranger on a trip to Vegas - only to find herself under his mysterious, sexy power both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she's supposed to be. She's a rising-star-workaholic at a global consulting firm. She's the fiancée of a well-connected man who's won the approval of her parents. People know that she's reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic, and yes, a little predictable. She's who Dave and her family want her to be.
But as her 30th birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild-and-crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. Under the tailored clothes it's clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful, and maybe even a little dangerous. With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and before long, she's in his hotel room.
She never gets his full name. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she's able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it's why she's just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life. Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night. But when the mysterious gentleman she's just had a fling with shows up in her office - as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more - things will never be the same again. And there's no telling where this will go....

Well, I certainly would recommend it to women. My wife was completely blown away by the book, not to mention turned on. But she was also drawn into the story. And you know what? So was I. I think I would recommend the book to men who have women in their lives. I should note, I suppose, that we also read the book on Kindle.
I don't know about books because I have not read too many female erotic books - or any to be fair. But it did remind me of some films. "9 1/2 Weeks," "Body heat", and "Eyes Wide Shut" come to mind.
Is that the narrator? I thought she was terrific. I had kind of imagined the characters differently in my mind's ear - but it was fun to hear her.
There are many parts that made us both laugh. The author has a great sense of humor. I suppose there were some emotional parts, but mostly there was terrific energy to the book and the story. But I have to say, the eroticism of all these books were simply off the charts. Honestly, I thought y wife was going to have her heart stopped during some of the scenes. Glad I was there to help her though it.
When is Kyra Davis coming out with another one?
Amazing story line differs from the regular pretty shy girl meets hot guy..........
Different story line with a twist
I think Grace Grants gives her own emphasis on the story where it needs to be... She is a very good....
When Robert and Kassie break up and they are apart for months when he realize that he needs to be with her
Excellent listen!!! Also a terrific read... Read the trilogy before listening gives a different feel to the book
I've read some of this author's other books, but only the Sophie Katz stories. Based on the summary, I thought this was going to be a humorous read as well.
Yeah, I was wrong...
This book is like "torn between two lovers," except one of them is kind of psycho, and the other one thinks he's a god of sorts. And reliable, steady Casey really ... spends time on her two options. The book would have been shortened tremendously if the main character didn't just fantasize about having sex and just went out and did what she wanted and followed her instincts. I did predict how it would end as well.
the narrator did n excellent job of narrating. Her voices for the characters she used was constant throughout.
I will probably read more books by this author and with this narrator. I'll just know more of what I shouldn't expect in the future.
This book is definitely one of my favorites. There is a lot going on with this story. It's a major page turner! I love stories where the female lead becomes stronger at the end. This one was lengthly but kept me going.
I got this book because I love Grace Grant, she is one of my favorite readers. The book kept me interested and kept me guessing quite nicely. I liked it and hated it at the same time. Sorry if that sounds confusing but thats what it did for me. I liked that it wasn't your typical fsog copy cat but I just didn't feel for any of the characters, It was kind of like watching a pile up on the freeway, and can't help but look at the carnage when you drive by. GG did a good job as usual, this book could have been way worse if not for her. So theres my fifty cents take from it what you will.
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.
Kasie has suppressed her true personality all of her life due to a tragedy in her childhood and from her parents expectations. On a trip to Vegas before she expects to become engaged she has sex with a stranger resulting in consequences she never expects. Her life is forever changed.
This was a good listen and the author has a different flair of writing that I enjoyed. It does contain sexual content, so be advised. Definetly worth the credit.
I give this 3 stars... I loved some parts and didn't care for others making this just a good read for me.
It started out really good, I loved the characters and their interactions, then something happened and it just kind of went flat for me. I've read that this was originally written as a serial series with 3 installments, I think there should have been a little editing done where the segments were joined together so we weren't reading a recap of the previous chapters. Each time a new segments was introduced it felt like they were written at different times, like the author wasn't in the same mindset or something.. I just think with some clever editing this would be a solid 4 star read.
I started out in love with Robert, then as the story progresses he becomes more of an ass, and not the hot kind either, he becomes the kind of person you need to get away from as soon as possible or you'll find yourself sucked in and then tossed to the side when he's done. I found that there were very few characters I did like by the end of it, but its what made the story work.
Some of the characters were one dimensional; while Robert had layers, you just scratch the surface with him, and it's a shame because there is so much potential there. I said before this would be a 4 star read with editing, add in some character depth and this could easily be a 5 star book.
For me it's a 3, but I enjoyed my time, it did it's job in entertaining me for the weekend.
I complete this book in a little over 4 hrs (yes, I know, the book is like 10 hrs long). The first part was good and I was hanging on desperate to see what was going to happen, by the second part I wanted to strangle Kasie.. 3 hrs in and I started skipping chapters. The characters were bipolar to say the least. It felt as if the author just started to wing it after a while. This book is a complete waste of money, DO NOT BUY!!!
Positive---- the narrator Grace Grant did a great job in making the listen a little less painful.
