Diligent, hardworking Paige Levine survived a traumatic childhood and went on to work her way through college, landing a coveted job in the Governor’s cabinet. But when a steamy scandal threatens to tarnish her innocent reputation, Paige finds herself unemployed, miserable, and alone. The spirited redhead seeks solace in tequila shots - and a smoldering, sensual attraction soon erupts between her and a deliciously sexy deliveryman, leading to a red-hot encounter in a bar bathroom.
Little does Paige know that the deliveryman is actually Leo Savas, a shipping magnate as powerful in the boardroom as he is in the bedroom. Leo agrees to hire Paige as his glorified gopher, though it’s hard to remain professional with desire pulsing between the two of them. But when the scandal at the Governor’s office hits the papers, Paige wonders if her new life - and her new love - are lost forever.
From the bestselling author of Break Me Slowly comes the latest sensual Sweet Torment story of erotic exploration and letting passion be the ultimate boss.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I like Dawe narration for something like historical romances.... not this. Joya Ryan is this extremely intense writer...rather the characters go through emotional roller coasters, which makes the readers feel this intense connection with them. So the narration has to pull those emotions out by small inflections, accents, crescendo, whispers, moans and such while reading. If the emotional parts are done at the wrong time...well it make the book sound like something it is not...
From Dawe's narration I felt like this read like a 18th century romance stuck in 2014 NY.... completely wrong...
That being said...I actually like Dawe narration...just in the right time period...lol....anyway...this story is really good...kinda on the lines of book1... could be a great emotional read that is expected from Ryan...if the narration was changed...
Also...I must say, the female lead come off as a totally byotch, at times with way to much pride who couldn't humble herself...but then in the same breath, she was completely defenseless.... not the same strong willed character from book1... and I think it's because of how she was narrated... and the Governor...what happen to him...no pity at all...
I just can't recommend this for narration....but if the narration was changed...mos definitely a buy, credit, or sale...
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This gal has spunk and our hero is YUM! If you liked the film, Working Girl, then this story is for you.
This is a light H.E.A.E type story. No F.S.O.G. stuff, so the journey is delightful and you have a smile on your face as you listen.
I am a devoted fan of Ms Dawe which was why I purchased this book/author.
Note you must use new 1.25x speed to get what the author intended.
Ms Dawe's male and children voices are the best.
If you liked this story, see the Tiffany Snow series reader does, Hot.
Julie Garwood's Sweet Talk is one of my faves not to be missed.
I love strong determined heroines who don't give up. Author uses elements that evoke your smiles, laughter, and don't give up attitude .
book 1 is by another reader, which I will have to sample before buying.
I enjoyed the story, although ut felt more like a single story rather than a second book in a series. The was nearly no showing of the characters from the first book. The reader did a good job but her male voice was a little off putting. But, all in all, I enjoyed the book very much.
Say something about yourself!
Probably not. I did enjoy the book but I was so upset by her friends betrayal (Amy & the Gov.) who just cut Paige out of their lives with no effort to tell her what they felt they needed to do then once the investigation was over, poof, wanted her back in.
No. See above. I loved Amy & the Gov. in book one of the series then was disappointed with them in book 2.
Different narrator. Angela Dawe has an annoying style.
