To stop a blackmailer and achieve her dreams, she has to do only one thing: seduce the enemy.
Shanna York is set to achieve her glittering ballroom dreams and become a dance champion - until her dance partner gets tangled up in scandal and blackmail. With the clock ticking and all her ambitions at stake, the last thing she needs is the gorgeous owner of a sex club tempting her with the forbidden. Or maybe that's the very thing she needs.
Alejandro Diaz has sizzled for Shanna since he set eyes on her months ago. Her repeated rebuffs will make her surrender that much sweeter. She's ambitious and driven...but so is he. When she asks for his assistance to ensnare a voyeuristic blackmailer with a video fetish, he doesn't hesitate to help her stage a bedroom trap. But neither is prepared to face scorching, endless passion, the blackmailer's real identity - or the undeniable love that grows between them.
This title is a reissue of a 2007 release.

This was short and oh so sweet. Alejandro was hot, hot, hot and skillfully worked Shanna out of her insecurities. One of the best elements of this Audiobook was Sasha Dunbrooke's engaging and believable narration. I will search for more projects by this combination of professionals. Thank you for a thoroughly delightful book.
This is a great book written by Shayla Black, Shelley Bradley and narrated by Sasha Dunbrooke. Shanna York was set to achieve her ballroom dreams and become a dance champion, until her dance partner gets tangled up in scandal and blackmail. She is determined to stop the blackmailer to achieve her dreams. Alejandro Diaz had wanted Shanna ever since he saw her. When she asks for his help to ensnare the blackmailer he jumps at the chance.
The narrator Sasha Dunbrooke, did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.
This book has a great story; if you are looking for a great hot romance, then you need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end.
A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
Shanna York is an extremely driven and talented ballroom dancer. Some might go as far, as to call her a bitch. The trouble is that she has the reputation for running through dance partners that don't suit her. She's pretty happy with her current partner, but unfortunately his extracurricular activities might not sit well with the straight laced judges. To bad someone has it out for her, and has decided to blackmail her with a video of her partner from a fetish club.
This was such sexy, short read. I tend not to pick up stand alone books or novellas. But WATCH ME really packs in a lot of storyline in such a short audiobook. I would have loved it to have been just a little bit longer, so I could spend more time in Shanna and Alejandro's world. However, I did have to look past the "insta-love" that is a necessity of such a short story.
The two main characters were extremely entertaining and had wonderful chemistry! Their heat jumped off the page. Even though Shanna could come a crossed as hard and sometimes difficult, she's got such a great heart deep down. I enjoyed how Alejandro saw straight threw her persona. He was able to break down her walls, and give her things that she never even knew she needed.
I know I'm dating myself by saying this, but it reminded me of the 1992 movie The Cutting Edge. I don't mean that in a negative way, since I loved this movie growing up. It's about a girl who blows through teammates, like it's her job. Just replace dancing for figure skating.
I only have one criticism for this story. I felt that the blackmail scene in the beginning was unnecessarily gratuitous and over the top. I am in no way a prude. I love my sexy book...EXTRA sexy! The scene just felt forced. I know it needed to be scandalous, but I felt like the author used every trick in the porn book to do it. It actually, almost made me stop listening. I think that for such a short story, the word count would have been better used on hot scene between Shanna and Alejandro.
This was the first time, that I've listen to Sasha Dunbrooke's narration. I'm extremely tough on narrators! If the narration doesn't add additional layers to the story, I might as well read the book for myself. So I was surprisingly impressed with Sasha! Her character voices were distinct and spot-on. I was specifically impressed with the way she portrayed Alejandro character. Her pacing and dictation were phenomenal. She really brought this story to life for me. Bravo Sasha! She has landed herself on my Must Listen list of narrators.
This was just a delightful short listen! Overall, I felt that the author pulled together deep story line in a short audiobook. I enjoyed spending some time in both the dancing and sex club worlds. I loved the juxtaposition between the two. I think that Shelley Bradley and Sasha Dunbrooke make a great pair! I would recommend this audiobook for anyone who's looking to escape into a sexy world for a few hours.

Sure, though I don't have many friends who like erotica, except my mom, and thats just gross.
It was short and sweet, and didn't make anything take longer than necessary
She embodies the character
yep! for sure
Watch me was a short, intense little book filled with seduction, temptation, and pure hotness.The Story: Watch me follows the life of Shanna York, a particularly obsessive professional ballroom dancer who has been proclaimed as the, "B***h of the ballroom." She goes through dance partners almost as fast as she goes through dance costumes and she believes winning is all that's important. Then, her dance partner gets videotaped in a couple compromising positions with a couple romantic partners of his, the whole scene is videotaped and was done in front of an audience, and the video-taper is trying to blackmail Shanna by threatening to show the video to the judges at the next competition. Shanna knows that such an occurrence would ruin her chances of winning the competition with the conservative judges, and she can either pick a new partner yet again, setting her back with this year's competition, or she can find out exactly who is trying to blackmail her.Enter Alejandro Diaz, the owner of the club where Shanna's partner performed for said audience. Alejandro is a sexy Latin man who has wanted Shanna since he first met her. He wants nothing more than to melt her icy exterior and find out exactly who she is. When Shanna comes to him to request he help her find out who is blackmailing her, he comes up with the perfect plan, one that's equally beneficial for both of them.The Narration: From the first sentence, I loved the narrator. She really fits Shanna's icy personality and hidden softness. She also does a wonderful job portraying the hot and heavy moments so that the listener can really picture what's going on. Sasha even does a pretty good job with the male voices and the accents, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to her.The Verdict: This is a book filled with steam, exhibitionism and lust. Still, I had some misgivings, there was a portion near the end where things seemed to rushed and too HEA too soon. I don't believe the feelings were rushed between the two main characters, but I do believe the decisions as a result of those feelings were rushed. I give this book 4 stars. I would recommend it to anyone who likes erotica with sexy foreign men and ice queen women getting brought down to their secretly mushy selves.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
*I received this book in exchange for my review.
Shanna York is a professional ballroom dancer. She is very competitive and ready to claim the title with her partner, as it has always has alluded her.
The greatest plans...one day she comes across a DVD, it contains footage of her dance partner. The footage shows him in a sexual scene with a woman and another man. The note that accompanies the DVD says that if she continues to compete, a copy of this will be given to the judges so that she will never be able to compete OR win –for the stigma of her partner.
She meets up with someone to help her with this awkward situation. Alejandro recognizes the background in the video as his "club" downtown. It is a very secretive club and he is very upset that someone has filmed within his top-secret facility.
To rectify this he decides that he & Shanna must play out a "scene" to titillate the blackmailers senses. As the blackmailer will only want to film when she is on stage. (Go with it...)
This is typical Shayla Black. The 'problem' is introduced in the very beginning pages (DVD of partner for blackmail), followed by mature scenes including some light BDSM. It is a hot book and the ending will leave you surprised.
The narrator did a professional job distinguishing between characters. Great work. Solid four stars
Notes: mature themes & strong language – for the 18+ crowd only
I have listened to all of the available books on audio by Shayla Black. This sounds like it might be an earlier/alter book as it is not about pushing the boundaries to the max, like her current books seem to do. I enjoyed it! Thanks for bringing this and other older releases to audio, ListenUp Production, LLC.
I appreciate that you have taken the time to read my review. Please select yes below if you found it helpful in your decision-making. Thank you.
Shanna York desperately wants to win the Dance Star competition, but her partner is filmed in a very compromising position at a sex club. If the video is leaked, her chances to win will fall to zero and someone very much doesn’t want her to attend the competition. She enlists the aid of the very seductive Alejandro Diaz, who is the perfect person to help her, as the co-owner of the club.
Alejandro has been aiming for Shanna since they danced together at an event, seeing past her bitchy facade and wanting her very much. They meet again and he is not ready to give up even if she continually rejects him. When she comes to him for help, he convinces her participate in a sex show to catch the propagator of the video. Sparks fly between the two.
This short book was very enjoyable and so hot! There were many sexy scenes and the main couple’s chemistry is off the charts! The dancing scene at the beginning was one of my favorite moments and really captures their relationship. The narrator did a good job voicing the characters. They were all unique and distinguishable. I would recommend this to people who like short books with dirty characters and awesome scenes.
This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review.
I would recommend this book to any Shayla Black fan. If your a fan you know she is a little naughty, and this book does not disappoint.
This book fits right in with all Shayla Blacks books. Another awesome book!
I loved Sasha, her voices were spot on. She did a great job being the book to life, she made me feel like i was right there.
I love the whole book, the way Alejandro broke Shanna's walls down. My favorite was when she realized that dance is not everything.
This is a very short book but it packs lot in just 4 hours. If you like Shayla's books you will love this one. It is filled with HOT HOT sex, romance, drama, mystery and a hot alpha male.
Wow!! This was such a great read!! OMG, if you want a hot quickie this is definitely the read for you!! Good lord I was scorched many a time, almost from the very start!
The story is good and the characters interesting, but the real deal here is all the smexy stuff! This book does not skimp on the hawt action! This is one of those reads where voyeurism is a key element. Much of the action occurs in a private sex club, so be prepared for that angle. Also have a couple buckets or ice cream ready, read while sitting in a tub of ice water and be prepared with loads of batteries or a snuggle buddy!! This book brings the steam in boatloads and frequently!!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Sasha Dunbrooke, who is a new voice for my ears. She had a wonderful feel for all the voices and accents, there were a few. I am going to have to look at other reads from her. The pace was spot on and full of energy, you could almost feel the chemistry between the leads as she read. A delight all around!!
The only negatives I have are minimal at best. I was not believing love this quickly, I will go with lust and feelings, but not love. The other “Eh” for me was the resolution of the big conflict. Finding out about the blackmailer was anticlimactic and sort of a footnote at the end. It was a bummer because the rest of the story was well done.
