Publisher's Summary

Can you have love and power at the same time?

Politician and billionaire Jonathan Brond has mastered his work, his reputation and the art of sexual domination while keeping his family's political legacy intact. But a chance encounter with college student Christiana Snow promises something he didn't think was possible; meeting someone honest.

When the charismatic man proposes a summer of sensual, sexual submission, Christiana leaps into his world; the antidote to her bland life. But Washington, D.C. is an unforgiving place; soon gossip and scandal threatens their relationship. Yet, in a town of players, introducing a new game is the only way out. Who knew love would be the winning plan?

    Story
    "Must hear! Must read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The narrator, Anastasia, did a great job bringing the story to life.


    What other book might you compare Lovely to and why?

    I'm not sure it could be compared! The writing draws you in and you can picture the story in detail.


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

    I hadn't heard her performances before, but I hope she does the next book in the series!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Love knows no bounds ;)"


    Any additional comments?

    FANTASTIC!

    "a breathtakingly phenomenal gift"
    What made the experience of listening to Lovely the most enjoyable?

    The narrator really brought out the heart and soul of the story in a powerful way. She was perfect.


    What other book might you compare Lovely to and why?

    Demonic Desires by Mandy M. Roth because of its beautiful story that touched my heart on such a visceral level.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Christiana tells Jonathon how she got her scar. It was incredibly powerful and touching.


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

    Yes, it made my cry, laugh, and make my heart jump in joy and intrigue.

    Story
    "Steamy story so keep your windows closed!"

    I listen to audio books on my commute. This one is so steamy I kept my windows up!

    I love the story. Christiana and Jonathan make for a compelling couple and a complex story. It's also fun that it's topical, based on when I listened.

    The reader is just terrific and really helped keep me engaged. It was obvious that she had read and studied the story which make for the best readers.

    Give it a listen! You won't be disappointed.

    "Hot, steamy, sexy, entertaining"
    Where does Lovely rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    near the top!


    What about Anastasia Watley’s performance did you like?

    She reads clearly and added emotion to the dialog,and gave each character a uniqueness


    Any additional comments?

    Erotic, sexy, exquisite ... the sex scenes are beautifully written and narrated (nothing trashy here ... it's pure magic!)
    while the hot steamy sex is great this book also has a great story line .. I was sucked in and delighted by the amount of emotion I felt myself towards moments and characters.
    this isn't just another erotic romance about BDSM, doms and submissives ... Not. At. All
    Suspense, mystery, romance blend into this erotic novel ... a little bit of everything to delight all your senses

    Story
    "Christiana and Jonathan are a lovely and sexy team"
    If you could sum up Lovely in three words, what would they be?

    Hot Honest BDSM


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed the main characters. Christiana is honest, hard-working and straight forward despite the half truths around her in her job and life. She is a lonely submissive doing the best she can with what life has given her. Jonathan is a Dom who finds his true self and willingness to stand up to family pressure due to his relationship with Christiana. They truly make a lovely, sexy couple who can respect and adore each other.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when Jonathan tells Christiana that he regrets making her keep secrets because he was drawn to her because of her honesty and being a real person who didn't hide herself. By keeping secrets he had forced her to not be her true self with others.

    There were also a lot of sexy BDSM scenes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to have listened in one go, but it is almost 12 hours long. It took a week to get through the whole story.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story. I had never read or listened to an Elizabeth SaFleur book, but will absolutely read and listen to more in the future. I was a bit hesitant at first due to the very first chapter that included adultery which was explained later, but once past that section, I absolutely loved the story.

    Story
    "Wonderful in depth presentation of characters"

    This was not just a a good story with steamy,mouth watering sex scenes. I felt I knew Christiana Snow and Jonathan Bond by the end of the story. And the flavor of intrigue that could actually exist in Washington ran throughout the book.

    Anastasia Watley's narration was fantastic. her voice and presentation of the characters brought them to life for me.

    My hope is that Elizabeth SaFleur presents the remaining 2 books in the series in Audio

    I received a free audio book for my honest review.

    please keep writing Elizabeth!

    Story
    "Excellent example of a good erotic romance"
    Would you listen to Lovely again? Why?

    Yes. It's an engaging story with interesting and plausible characters, events and dialogue


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that it was primarily a romance story in which an older man helps a younger woman realise who and what she truly is


    Which character – as performed by Anastasia Watley – was your favourite?

    Christiana


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could have arranged my day appropriately, quite possibly!


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed reading this as an e-book and enjoyed it just as much as an audiobook. The quality of the storytelling is excellent, the way the characters feel seems very plausible, and the love-making scenes are exciting but not seedy. In a fairer world, this would have been published before Fifty Shades of Grey, and been just as successful.
