The narrator was almost robotic, like she was reading the story for the first time. Not enough emotion, flat and bland.
I love Lora Leigh! Great series!
Narrating.....not that good.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
Are you looking for a well rounded literary masterpiece?....if you are don't stop on this book! This book is total erotic (sort of) cheese. I say sort of erotic because, well, if you don't have actual sex for half the book I can't call it erotic...but if you have the kind of sex that involves a man and a man and a man and a woman...well that's not exactly main stream either.
Technically there were a couple of menages...but focus on the word COUPLE...this wasn't an entire book about 3 brothers and one woman, but it got there eventually. The premise was actually kind of good. The oldest brother Cade is now 30, the woman is now 20, but when she was 12 (meaning he was 22) she was brought to his house to live with her step Uncle (Cade's dad) because her abusive step father wanted her in his bed...so the mother fled, YEAH MOM! So, Cade helped raise this girl, cared for this girl, scared away this girls wanna be boyfriends....so how is it now that she is 20 he sees her as a woman, a desirable woman? He fights this for a LONG time (too long in my opinion), but the problem is that since this girl had hormones they have all been pointing at Cade, and she is ready to do something about this.
The lines used in this book were total cheese "I'm going to feast on you like a banquet" was likely the worst...but that IS the type of book I wanted so no complaints here.
It doesn't have a riveting plot, even the suspense scenes were not that suspenseful and it was like in the last hour the author said "oh yeah this is suppose to be an erotic book, I should really do something about that" and so she did!
If you are in the mood for semi-erotic cheese then go for it...if not catch it on sale. I don't think I will be going for the next book in the series....but then again if I'm in a cheesy mood who knows!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This is a Very sexually charged Three Brothers and one Female book so if you can not handle the thought of all they can do with her sexually best stay away.... It also touches on the subject of Sexual Abuse...
Cade August had taken Marly McCall in when she was just a small child with nowhere else to go. She had become family to him, his brothers Sam and Brock. Now that she was older in college, Cade was feeling more than brotherly toward Marly, and it horrified him because he thought those feelings were wrong. He didn't think she could handle the man he had become. He has darker sexual tastes, and is a complete dominant. There is also another secret he has tried to keep from her, and that is the fact he shares his women with his brothers.
Marley suffered at he hands of a sexually abusive step father until coming to live with the 3 brothers. She always loved Cade and as she grew older love turned to lust and want as well. Marly knew Cade still saw her as a child, and she was determined to entice him so that he saw her for the woman she was. He was not able to resist her for long when she mounted a full on seducing assault on him...........
