"The anonymous note wasn't for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly - deliciously - it was not.
"Before replacing the note - and the ones that followed - in its rightful slot, I devoured its contents: suggestions, instructions, commands. Each was more daring, more intricate and more arousing than the last, and I followed them all to the letter.
"Before the notes, if a man had told me what to do, I'd have told him where to go. But submission is an art, and there's something oddly freeing about doing someone's bidding, especially when it feels so very, very good. But I find that the more I surrender, the more powerful I feel, so it's time to switch up roles. We play by my rules now."

I have now I listened and read over 1500 books since 2010. Goodreads.com is a good way to find books and keep track of what you've read.
THIS STORY IS GREAT. I THINK THE NARRATOR COULD HAVE DONE BETTER WITH SOME OF HER CHARACTERS BUT OVER ALL I LOVED IT.
I was disappointed at the way it ended. I felt it builded but never followed through. Also, parts of it were incredibly too slow.
By the cover it seems like the plot is about the character exploring kink. But it's not.
By the set up it seems like the plot is about finding out who the mysterious notes are for (discovered by accident) and who they are from (also discovered by accident) and it's not.
Most of the set up would suggest that the plot is about the fateful meeting of two characters (and really, if the set-up of the meeting is that long, the meeting has to actually happen) but it's not.
Midway through a health crisis is introduced about the protagonist's mother, but it's resolved fast and isn't the plot.
The final resolution is of a very minor sub-plot that the character didn't seem to care about through the rest of the book.
Really, don't bother.
this is nothing like the rest of her books, very dragged out and left you saying WHAT? i think tempted was the best of all her books so far and this one was sonot like that.
Wish I had read Donna's review before I, too, bought it on sale. I'd love to have my money back. The language was appalling. There may have been a plot, but I couldn't find it in the hour or two I listened. I really tried...but life is too short.
Very disappointing. The plot never really materialized and was plagued with irrelevant observations and commentary. Couldn't even finish it.
I love Megan Hart and would have preferred giving it a 3.5 had that option been available. It was not one of her best books but it was a good read. I will read it again.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I'm a big fan of Megan Hart but this book left a lot to be desired for me.
The story was great, but male voices were lacking. I almost wished I read the book so my perception of the characters was not compromised. Interesting how Megan Hart's books intertwine.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I like a good Fantasy but this wasn't meant to be, it was meant to be a modern realistic plot but it just wasn't, it was in la la land in the world of 'oh, as if's'.
Worth a credit? I usually love MH books but not so much this one - so it's a NO - sorry.
