Publisher's Summary

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....

    "MISERABLE HEROINE, SLOW STORY"

    I liked nothing about this book...ESPECIALLY the selfish and judgmental heroine. She constantly gives herself over to her inner trashy side, all the while turning her back on and thumbing her nose at her slightly seedy family and past. She did not deserve the hero and I have no idea why he even wanted her--besides their energetic monkey sex. Also, this book moved at a snail's pace with WAY too much of the heroine's inner pondering and the narrator was as annoying as the heroine she portrayed. Total waste of time and money.

    "Loved it!"

    This was a great listen. The story of Jane and Chase was interesting, sexy and smart. Best of all was the narrator. She made the story even better. Don't miss this one!

    Story
    "The best of the Tumble Creek trilogy"

    I had read this story before but enjoyed the audiobook just the same. The author manages to tell a funny and touching story and at the same time explore some of the very real damage that can be unwittingly be done to kids by parents as well as how hard it is to shake off the past. I thought the narrator, Savannah Richards, did a good job with the story and the characters.

    If I hadn't read the book before I don't know if I would have stuck it out when the Jane, main female character lets herself be judgmental and rude to Chase, just based on his clothes and tats. She was really hateful. Its worth sticking with the story though because Dahl manages to bring the reader around to a position of understanding and empathy for a woman living with a poor messed up girl inside her.

    I think this is the best of the Tumble Creek trilogy but they are all good.

    Story
    "Snobby idiot for a main character"
    Would you listen to Lead Me On again? Why?

    The narrator was wonderful - the story itself was a repeating mess.


    What could Victoria Dahl have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not harp so much on "how Chase wasn't good enough" and "how people are watching her every move". Real life - tattoos and a blue collar job aren't a bad thing. Maybe to Ms. Dahl but in my life those things aren't bad at all. And seriously people aren't watching each others every move.

    The character Jane was annoying and I wanted to shake her half the time. When the story wasn't harping on her past or people watching her it was good. Jane's constant need to say I'm sorry to people that don't deserve the courtesy of a "sorry" was irritating as hell.I wanted to fast forward through so much of this dang book.


    Which character – as performed by Savannah Richards – was your favorite?

    Gramma Olive - hilarious.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was irritated through it.

    Story
    "oh so HOT"
    Where does Lead Me On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is one of my all time favorites. Until this book, I thought the Virgin River Series was the best books out there, now....not so sure this one doesn't top it.


    Have you listened to any of Savannah Richards’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


    yes, Ms Richards is my most favorite narrator. I will usually buy a book when I see she is the narrator, no matter what the genre.


    Any additional comments?

    would LOVE to come across more of the Dahl-Richards team in books. I would buy every one!

    Story
    "Trite and Predictable"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This story was really bad. I "read" a LOT and enjoy all different kinds of books. The author seemed like she was trying to have a 50 Shades of Gray type graphic quality with a lead character who was not only predictable but someone a person can't even make themselves root for. I actually wanted the story to end badly for the "heroine".

    As for the graphic sex scenes, they were so contrived that I began fast forwarding through them.


    What character would you cut from Lead Me On?

    Jane Morgan ( lead character ).

    Story
    "Loved it! Super glad I took a chance on this book"
    What made the experience of listening to Lead Me On the most enjoyable?

    It was the perfect mix of romance, humor and a tiny bit of adventure. I loved Chase and Jane together and their dynamic was awesome. The sex scenes were hot and descriptive but weren't so long that I felt like I was reading a porno.This book kept me entertained and I was fighting a smile through a big part of it


    What does Savannah Richards bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really liked this narrator. Her reading style didn't annoy me or get in the way. She was very expressive. With her I was able to got lost in the characters and emotions. She did an awesome job of portraying the characters attitudes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked how the characters were fleshed out in this book. All the characters, not just the main ones, were an important part of the story and made it feel more realistic and rounded, unlike some where there is a hyper focus on the two main characters. I really liked Jane. Her rough past and how she got through it was believable and not cheese or over dramatic. Chase made me smile and was a super hot and sexy :) yumalicious!

    "Very entertaining, with great characters"

    I found this very entertaining and would give it another listen. The timeline between when Jane and Chase meet and when their real relationship begins is good, with character development and story movement in between. There a few laughs, and a bit of angst. I enjoyed it, and the narrator kept it going.

    I believe there are 3 elements to a great romance audible book: good narration, believable plot, flawed characters and great dialogue!

    "Yes, please!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was my first book by Victoria Dahl, and I believe it is her best on audible. I enjoyed watching the relationship between the main characters Jane and Chase unfold, while Jane figured out how to deal with her sticky past with her mother and present with her brother. Savannah Richards does a great job narrating, I think this is one of the main reasons I enjoyed the book so much.
