Raw, animal magnetism is a big red flag to prim and proper office manager Jane Morgan.
After a rough childhood with a mother who liked her men in prison-jumpsuit orange, Jane changed her name, her look, and her taste for bad boys. So why is she lusting for William Chase with his tattoo-covered biceps and steel-toed boots? The man blows things up for a living!
She gives herself one explosive, fantasy-filled night with Chase. The next day it's back to plain Jane and safe men.
But when her beloved brother becomes a murder suspect, it's Chase who comes to her rescue. And Jane discovers that a man who's been around the block knows a thing or two about uncovering the truth....

I hated this book, and if I hadn't spent money on it and needed something to entertain me while driving, I would have stopped reading it after the first couple of chapters. The ending was so predictable, even for a romance. The main character was an idiot; I just wanted to slap her. The whole story was completely unbelievable. I shouldn't have wasted my time along with my money. The reader was good, however.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
This book had me steaming! I loved it! I love how the main female character is strong on the outside but a softy on the inside. I like how she learns the importance of family. She also has such a strong sense of her own sexuality and I love that she gives no excuses or feels like that is wrong in herself. All around a very enjoyable and funny book.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story. Victoria is a very good storyteller. At times, I did find myself rolling my eyes at Jane's inability to move on, but that is probably just a personality thing. I am very much someone who let's things go, so I can get annoyed with people (even fictitious ones) who can't. I will definitely be purchasing her other two books to listen.
This book has an interesting but somewhat ordinary storyline. The sex is graphic, be aware. However, overall I liked the characters and the story. It was entertaining. Narrator made it better.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This was my first Victoria Dahl book and I liked it. I would try another one if it had good ratings.
I have listened to several books narrated by Savannah Richards. I actually bought this book because it was narrated by her. A narrator makes or breaks an audiobook and I must say Savannah Richards is one of my favorite narrators.
My first VD book. This is a story of a wild child turned responsible serious adult coming to terms with who she really is, re establishing a relantioship with her family and falling in love with who she thought was the wrong man... I found it hard to believe that people with such rough pasts can actually change that much but I guess it is possible. Also I like the fact that you learn thought the story that one should not judge, everyone has a story and we all deserve a second chance...
Savannah Richards has a very pleasant voice. You can easily differentiate between characters and she makes the story more vivid for the listener. If SR is narrating I defenitely prefer listening to her rather than reading the book myself.
I'm actually not sure. What I did not love about this book is that you have ex cons that are really decent good people (which I don't get how they could have actually robbed or killed?) also promiscuos girls that then turn into very respectable women. I just think that most of the characters were contradicting in their actions and personalities.
This is not my favority book but it is a good listen. If you are conservative, this is not a book for you. If you are very open minded or if you had a tough childhood and then changed your life, then you will really enjoy this.
I had never read Victoria Dahl, but Savannah Richards is one of my favorite narrators, so I tried "Lead Me On." It has a decent storyline with a combination of humor, seriousness and very steamy romance. Good fun read.
Now I have never heard of this author. But im glad I found it when it was on sale. Wow what a book. It kept it live and couldnt stop listening to it. I finished it in one day. I am now looking at the rest of her audio's.... If you want a little mystery and teases. u will love this audio... one of the best buys i have had on this site.
Talk Me Down, Start Me Up, Lead Me On...Highly recommend these titles by Victoria Dahl. The characters are well developed, colorful and realistic. I absolutely loved all 3 of these Victoria Dahl books. Download them NOW!!! All 3 books are definite "RE-listens" over and over.
