Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X is a master of the art of control. With a single glance she can cut you down to nothing or make you feel like a king.
But there is only one man who can claim her body - and her soul.
Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for a different path, X has never known anything or anyone else - until now....

I did not expect explicit sex in a novel. I thought the book was about a young lady finding herself and making a decision between the past and present. Well. the title should be Madame X Rated. I am compelled to continue the series to see if she makes the right decision. Every scene almost is like EW! I will be more careful with my selections. I wish books were rated.
Nothing like what I was expecting. Very unusual story and took me over a week to listen to. Caleb is a manipulative ass. Madame X I'm not sure if she is just ignorant or scared.
However, I will be listening to the second book to see where this goes.
It will probably take me another week to finish that book too.
It ranks a 9.
I liked that the herione overcame her fear to fight for herself
I can't remember the guys name that wanted to help her escape the life she was accustomed to.
That moment was when she started asking questions
Yes I would listen again as I know I missed some of the clues and small details that made this story so interesting.
I can't think of any book that I have ever read that I would compare this to in any meaningful way. In my mind, the story is unique.
Her voice held my attention and was very expressive.
The scene with number 3 really set me on edge.
I can't wait for the next instalment.
Wow, any book that can make the reader/listener physically feel the emotional pain of a character, is brilliantly written. Thirty minutes after completing the first book of the trilogy and my abs are still clenched and aching from the empathy I am continuing to feel. In my personal experience, there is no more vicious pain, for this woman, then the knowledge that the man you love is not ,and will not ever be, faithful to you.
At this point, in the story, I cannot understand Madame X's decision to turn her back on a real chance for happiness, to return to the hell she knows. Gosh I hope this story turns a corner and Madame X proves to me that this emotional pain I continue to feel, is going to change to joy and sighs of relief. ]
If you can't handle reading about the darker sides of life, this is not for you. For me? on to part 2.

Yes, I loved the flow of the story. Even though most of it took place in one location, the imagery of her world was excellent.
X, because she was sexy as hell, and I loved all her layers
Yes, a great many. I think she brings every book I've heard her in, to life.I am a fan.
Yes, when she kept going back to her master, after finding happiness somewhere else.
I was thrown off by the point of voice when I first started to read. I almost put it down. It was my love for Summer Robert's reading style in combination with the trust I had for Jasinda's writing style that kept me reading. I'm so glad I did.
The style of writing took some getting used to, but then I loved it! I love all the adjectives tht were used . The narrator was amazing!
I might listen to it again before the next one in the series comes out just to refresh my mind.
Madam X for sure. She is quite the mystery.
I can't wait for the next installment of the story. I am caught up in the mystery of all the characters.
"Confusing storyline, frustrating characters"
it seemed to have so much potential in the beginning but i found myself getting annoyed with the punchy short sentenced style of writing and the characters were really Unlikeable. I won't be continuing with the sequels
