Eleanor Briggs just can't help herself. The sight of the man in the high-rise across the street is driving her wild. She longs to feel his touch up close and personal. To win him over, she'll need to shake off her wallflower sensibilities and become the seductress she never imagined she could be. The only trouble will be finding the perfect way to meet him.
Sex is easy for millionaire entrepreneur Trey Riordan. Finding something of substance, however, seems impossible. That is, until a simple night of reading at a local coffee shop becomes something far steamier when a beautiful brunette comes by and leaves a note telling him to look out his bedroom window at 11 o'clock. But when the time comes, neither of them will be truly ready for what follows.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Eleanor had a fantasy man living in the Penthouse across from her and she has been voyeuristically watching him or a year.. watching him having kinky sex, watching him casually and confidentially move around his bedroom and, as she watched him, she longed to be the next woman whose tied to his bed. But, in Eleanor's mind, she was just a boring Museum Librarian.. until she started to wear her sister's sexy clothes and then she came up with a devious plan to seduce her fantasy man.. one Trey Riordan her successful charismatic sexy high rise neighbor. However, Eleanor wasn't prepared for the sizzles, the sparks, the chemistry and the very human man that she met when her fantasy life and real life fused together.
Trey wasn't having any luck with women.. oh he could get them easily enough and sex wasn't the issue.. but there was something missing inside him because he didn't feel passionate, romantic or energized while dating - there wasn't any substance. So he needed time to think, decided to temporarily become celibate and has started reading Pride and Prejudice in the hope that this will bring him closer to experience an emotional connection. This decision changed his life because it brought him to a Book Club where he would meet a beautiful sexy siren who would lure him out from his interspective ways, rock his world, stir up new feelings.. and then, after a shocking twist, walk away.
They both agreed it would just be about sex - but pretty soon these two loveable mixed up character's relationship evolved into something wonderful and both were in deep. Eleanor's problem was that she had an inferiority complex a mile wide and she wasn't really the bold confident sexy tease she was pretending to be.. it was just a mask to hide her true self.. the boring plain Librarian - or so she thought. Because, before the book finishes, Eleanor will go through a huge learning curve thanks to Trey's wonderful words, pushing of sexual boundaries and his thoughtful actions.. and Eleanor comes out of it a changed woman with a changed man by her side. Their journey of self-discovery and learning was wonderful to witness and I stayed up half the night captivated by their dual POV love story. There were mildish sub/Dom and bdsm kinky sex scenes mixed in with their hot sexcapades, family drama, a wicked twist, scenes where tender feelings were shared.. and a sweet and romantic HEA Epilogue. This story by Beth Kery was awesome and the narration by Maxine Mitchell was, as usual, brilliant and I just love her male voice.
Worth a credit? Definitely.. and a relisten at some point because yes it was, IMO, that good.
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
These are some of the best sex scenes I have read. No Quickies Here. This book was very well written and even better narration. Trey was very realistic. He says "I don't want a relationship until his world is rocked in the bedroom then he doesn't want anyone else. It's a little twist at the end but we get through it unscathed. Enjoy 😊 😊😊😊😊
This was a beautifully written book. Though some of the beauty was in the narration. Maxine Mitchell read the words as if she was they were her words, this was her story and her life depended on them. The erotic scenes were as vital to Trey and Eleanor's story as the characters histories were. The sex scenes were as beautiful and vulnerable as Eleanor herself. Trey was gruff and hard yet she opened him up and softened his edges and he allowed her to open sexually to him. These two seemed so suited to each other once you got past their outward appearances, she the librarian and he the Dom. This could have been a trite and cliched story, it was anything but. There were lessons in love, self acceptance and getting down to the realities of life. While I rush to hear this story I did not want it to end.
I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...
I love that this books starts with exposing Eleanor and all her crazy has to offer right from the start. Nothing like choosing your next lover by watching him love others first, at least you know what you're getting. So yeah this book did start off with Eleanor as the creepy stalker but it turned into so much more. This is funny and endearing story of a young woman who is tired of hiding who she is and what she wants and decides to go for it. And Trey definitely has a lot for her to go for -- umm, umm just hotness all around. This is my first book by Beth Kery but I promise it won't be my last.
Maxine Mitchell does an amazing job narrating, I especially like her male voices. This was a very enjoyable listen.
Definitely worth the price and maybe multiple listens.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Looking inside is the ultimate fantasy. The opening chapters' scenes are really fun. Who doesn't want to make their fantasies come true and go after a crush? Go find out how Trey becomes Eleanor's obsession and how she goes about her seduction and pulls it off just by the prompting of a loved one's deathbed wish, some props and some amazing dancing talent. I have a huge book hangover. I saved and savored the last ten percent on my Kindle hoping to find their closure (which Beth gives) but am sure I'll be thinking of little things about Eleanor and Trey for quite awhile. Oh the first time their eyes met.....and, I want those boots!
In Looking Inside, Beth Kery has added good inner conflict for both characters at the start and I fell completely for them. I especially loved the contrast and enigma Beth penned with Eleanor. Between being a quiet, preservation and conservation librarian for the Illinois Historical Museum and her erotic, seductive side in her private dancing she was a fun character to watch unfold and bloom. I loved Trey's confusion! Trey's self imposed sexual sabbatical and self improvement period before he met Eleanor made him adorable and irresistible to read ... and perfect prey for this story. Really more than a five star read for me!
Beth's writing is so captivating, every single word. I always settle right into her books and love every page. Go get lost in this one. Thank you, Beth!
Maxine Mitchell was outstanding with the delivery of the story
This is a book I didn't want to stop listening to! Take a shy women that just suffered a loss and let her come out of her shell by attempting to seduce the neighbor!
Elenore thought she was a typical librarian type. One day she looked across the street into the bedroom of a man she thought she could only dream about. A year later and getting over a death in the family she decided she was going to step out and pretend to be who she thought he wanted. Her attempts at seducing turned into some hot and intense sex scenes that were so well written. Do these two have a relationship? Or is it just sexually chemistry? Will her lies end it all or something else?
I love Maxine Mitchell as a narrator. I bought this book optimistically and was never disappointed. I didn't want it to end. Being 11 hours long I never got tired of listening and found myself creating ways to check out of reality and dive into this listen. Well worth the credit.
Love all romance, dark romance, romantic comedy and suspenseful romance!
Definitely worth a credit! Trey Reardon = mouthwatering!!! Eleanor is great and loved her plan! 😉. Great story! Loved it!
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
This was a great listen! Maxine Mitchell is one of my favorite narrators. Eleanor is a bookish beauty who decides to live her life with no regrets. There is plenty of erotic & primal sex scenes. The conflict was not what I predicted. Although I had one unanswered question, it didn't take away from the book. This is a stand alone, with no cliff hanger and very credit worthy. Beth Kery is a new author for me & I plan on listening to more of her books.
Self doubting hero and heroine work through their issues, some lingering grief and their sexual attraction to find love. The erotic scenes were hot but the performance was mediocre and whiney. A male voice would have helped.
