Publisher's Summary

What happens when a pretend boyfriend wants more than make-believe? Find out in this Westmoreland novel from New York Times best-selling author Brenda Jackson!

No red-blooded man turns down the chance to escort gorgeous Trinity Matthews - and Adrian Westmoreland is definitely red-blooded. For her, he'll pretend to be her man. But keeping his hands to himself? That is impossible. A Westmoreland always keeps his word, but how long before Adrian turns this fake affair into something real?

    Any Brenda Jackson romance.

    Story
    "MY NEW FAVORITE AUTHOR!!

    "

    I have been looking for this book to read since the first time I was introduced to the Westmoreland's!!
    HECK!!! I need me a Westmoreland!!!
    As a first time Audible 'reader', I cannot think of a great book to start with...SEXY SEXY SEXY.
    Descriptive characters, SEXY banter between the main characters, definitely stokes curiosity in wanting to meet the rest of the other family members...and the love scenes...ooooweee!!! Almost voyeuristic...until you remember, it's a damn book...not someone's journal!!!

    A MUST HAVE IN YOUR COLLECTION!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. ENJOY....


    side note: Avery Glymph - Narrator
    voice tone: perfect for listening
    character tone: tends to lose the flow of the characters' voices at the beginning of the story...but gradually gets into the right cadence and tonality as you get deeper into the story.

    Story
    "The love scenes have never been equalled by anyone"
    What made the experience of listening to The Real Thing the most enjoyable?

    I wanted a book with nothing but steamy love scenes. The Real Thing blew me away. I'd never been involved in love scenes like this since I first heard Wagner;s Tristan and Isolde. And Brenda just pours it on and on again and again. I was ecstatic. She topped" A Little Dare." .


    What did you like best about this story?

    Avery Glymph plunged into the story and made me feel that I was listening to the lovers tell their stories over the water fountain the next day at work.. The first seduction was unbelievable.


    Have you listened to any of Avery Glymph’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is excellent. You can relax feeling like you yourself are reading.it out loud. Glympn never sounds like he is reading. It's like he's telling you the story...


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The first lovemaking scene in chapter 10. We were at the top of Mt Everest on that one. And then we went up from there.


    Any additional comments?

    Brenda is to erotic writers like Lincoln is to presidents.They come no better.

    I'd read the book previously and found the story sexy and engaging. Adrian and Trinity's story had me from the first page. Avery Glymph is awesome! Hearing the audible was so enjoyable....love those Westmorelands!!

    Vintage Brenda Jackson story, glad she is back with Audible. The book made me want to stand up and say Amen several times as the plot thickens.
