I pay strangers to sleep with me. I have my reasons....But they're not the ones you'd expect. For starters, I'm a funeral director taking over my dad's business. Not exactly the kind of person you'd expect to fork over cash for the lust and urgency only live skin-to-skin contact can create. Looking at me, you wouldn't have a clue I carry this little secret so close it creases up like the folds of a fan. Tight. Personal. Ready to unravel in the heat of the moment. Unsurprisingly, my line of work brings me face-to-face with loss.
So I decided long ago that paying for sex would be one of the best (and arousing) ways to save myself from the one thing that would eventually cut far too deep. But Sam was a mistake. Literally. I signed on to "pick up" a stranger at a bar, but took Sam home instead. And now that I've felt his heat, his sweat and everything else, can I really go back to impersonal? Let's just hope he never finds out about my other life.

"...the story of a real and complex woman caught in a difficult situation with no easy answers. Well-developed secondary characters and a compelling plot add depth to this absorbing and enticing work." (Library Journal on Broken)
"Ms. Hart is a master of all genres. Her stories grip you from the onset." (Romance Junkies)
I was curious at what separates Erotica books from just plain ole Romance and I am pretty sure it's just the language. I can make a sailor blush so it doesn't bother me at all. I was surprised that the storyline was really good and engaged me right away. Quirky setting in a funeral home and man the sex scenes were hot! Going back for seconds from this author!!
I love Megan Hart books and this one is excellent. I hate to give this story anything less than a 5 but the narrator made me knock it back to a 3. What a great story with excellent written characters but the narrator sounds like a little girl reading porn. A different narrator would have made this book a 5+ but Gia St. Claire made it uncomfortable. It sounded like a 12 year old girl reading an adult novel...just didn't work for me. Read the book, skip this audible version.
This was the first book I listened to that was written by Megan Hart. I love how she was so detailed in how the surroundings smelled and looked, it made you feel like you were there and could actually see the characters. It had me laughing and crying. I definitely will buy another of her books.
I will say that the writing is not the issue with this one... the narrator is... her girlish "quippy" tone just makes the writing hard to notice... or believe.... too bad really.
I Love Megan Hart Stories. Another ball out the the park. This was great, worth the money.
the story was very long and drawn out.....my only question is....who was the blond with the kid at the end??? And what happened to her????
A story perhaps??
Absolutely. First chapters were nothing but ridiculously detailed descriptions of sex with a stranger.
I deleted the book after 30 minutes of listening.
The sexual adventures were mundane and boring. Nothing exciting about the main character or her actions.
Most of the scenes involving her parents or the rest of her family for that matter. That portion of the story didn't relate.
I was very disappointed in this book. I have listened to Hart's books in the past and they were much more exciting. I found myself fast forwarding through alot of this book in the second part, listening for excited utterances to stop for, no such luck.Talk about beating a dead horse>>> Didn't think it would ever end.
I enjoyed this book however, I found it a little too far fetched in the reality department but hey
do we read Megan Hart's books for the fantasy or the reality. This book will take you away from real life for the 12 hours or so.
