Even after nearly 20 years of marriage, Jillian Noble is still madly in love with her sexy-as-sin husband, Dean. But now that their two sons are grown and it's just the two of them alone again, there's something that Jillian wants from her husband. Something he's been holding back since the day they met - the dominant man he rarely lets show.
Now she wants it all, and when Dean agrees to unleash his more assertive side, all bets are off as he introduces her to dark, forbidden desires that will change the course of their marriage.

Its a well written book with mature characters.
It shows a loving married couple who after 19 years of marriage still love each other.
The best thing about the book was the connection between Jillian and Dean .
I loved the fact Jillian was confident enough to take the first step towards enhancing their love lives
I love the openness between Jillian and Dean.
They were at ease with one another and gave each other what they both needed.
I enjoy books were both the Hero and Heroine are confident strong people
All the scenes were well written and the intimate moments hot!
I especially like the scene where Dean got jealous when Jillian danced with another man! What he did later on was hot.
Another great narration by Lia Langola. Lia did fantastically portraying both characters.
Its never easy narrating sex scenes in a believable passion filled way. Lia managed to convey this emotion and passion filled book , beautifully!
Of all the audiobooks I've listened to, I would have to put, The Marriage Diaries, on the top of my list.
Off hand, I can't think of any other books I can compare, The Marriage Diaries to.
I loved her performance.
There was no one moment. It was how much Jillian and Dean loved each other.
I enjoyed The Marriage Diaries a lot, it was a wonderful story of love.
I volunteered to give an honest review.
this is a good book but be warned it is more along the lines of beginner bdsm than the more hard core bdsm. it perfect for someone who is curious about how bdsm will work in a not 50 shades of gray way someone who wants to read more in to the bdsm in erotica fiction but is not sure if they are really in to it. The narrator is good and has a lot of sex but that is to be expected from a bdsm story line. there are only two major characters but the writer took her time developing there sexual storyline both really much else though. it does repeat a few things unnessasaraly like how long they'd been married . overall not bad
I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.
Lia Langola never disappoints. as usual she does an amazing job bringing this characters to life. These stories were all kinds of sexy. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Oh my god! This book is pure sex! A couple madly in love even after 19 years of marriage, discovering their sexuality anew and indulging in countless fantasies they only ever dreamed of before, too afraid what the other might think. Until Jill takes a chance and brazenly seduces her husband, Dean, which finally sets free his inner caveman-like alpha male that always lurked beneath the surface. Now with their inhibitions lowered a whole new world of possibilities lies in front of them – and they both plan to take full advantage of it.
Once again, whew! These short novellas are so incredibly hot. There is not much more happening than living out or preparing for one fantasy after the other, each one described in beautiful detail, and yet I could not get enough of it. It has a lot to do with the love that both radiated for the other. Their connection runs deep, even more enhanced by their spiced-up sex-life.
Once Jill opened the box of Pandora, they openly talk about each and every of their dirtiest and most daunting fantasies. You can feel the trust running deep between those two. And Jill trusts Dean even more than he trusts himself. With his history he is afraid his inner alpha will overrun him so that he involuntarily hurts Jill. There were one or two moments where Dean feared afterwards that he had taken things too far and betrayed his wife’s implicit trust – the way he tended to her and cradled her in those moments after having unleashed the beast on her had me sighing in awe. The utter devotion he has for his wife… this in combination with his alpha side makes Dean one perfect man. Even more so when Jill brings a fantasy of his to life, one he thought he would enjoy, but only made him realize that he wants Jill for himself and himself alone – he almost went on a rampage to stake his claim on her! I absolutely approved of his behavior – wouldn’t have it any other way tbh – and then I swooned… and swooned some more. Oh, Dean being an ex-Navy SEAL added even more to the swoon-factor.
My favorite of all those manifold fantasies has to be the one in the third volume when things become… well, aggressive and incredibly intense, even more so than during other encounters. I wished I could say more about that particular scene, as it left me absolutely breathless, but as that might spoil it for someone, I will leave it at that.
In this book you won’t find many outspoken love declarations and yet their deeply rooted love for one another is absolutely palpable in almost every action they take. This book is unbelievably beautifully written and erotica at its best. I wished there were more books like this one – both in writing style and with long-married couples discovering their relationship anew.
I listened to the audio version of this book, which is narrated by Lia Langola. So many things can go wrong with a narrated erotic novel. If the feelings – the passion – does not come across, the story can be as good as it wants without reaching the reader at all. But I was able to get completely lost in the narration. She portrayed everything perfectly. I loved Dean’s voice and believed every alpha-word he spoke. I am glad that there is another volume of this adventurous couple as I cannot wait to listen to it!
Having already owning a copy of these books, I was hugely interested in seeing if they being read in audio would be as entertaining and hot as I remembered. Yep, they were. The essences of the characters were well played out by the narrator. and the heat was certainly coming off the pages. A good job with this reading.
Dean and Jillian's life was good together , but when their kids left the nest, Jillian decided it was time to add a little more spice and release the inner tigress in herself and unleash the Alpha that Dean had hidden inside. From one hot encounter at his business, a playroom is made, fantasies are explored and intimacy extended.
Voluntarily review of a gifted copy from author/narrator.
this was hot and steamy from the get go. a fantastic book with some fun ideas to spice up your own marriage. I would recommend this book to some but not too others only cuz I wouldn't want to talk about some things in this book with some people in my life, for example my mother. the narrator was excellent and a pleasure to listen to.
That's certainly one way to keep a marriage on track, great story and fantastic narrative. Lia did an awesome job, will definitely look into more audiobooks with her. Can't wait for the rest of the series, hope they use Lia again and maybe add a male narrator in the mix.
