I was excited to read this story, however the more I read the more ridiculous this story became.
Naomi need money so she agreed to be max play thing for 3 weeks for 50 million. But that's not enough money to entice her so she adds her own demands. Huh a little ridiculous but I could work with it so I keep reading.
Well she gets to Max's place and finds out she is one of 9.
The games begin and the progression of the story gets more cryptic, inconsistent and far fetched as the chapters go on.
I love a good dark erotic romance but this book was more mystery erotic horror than dark erotic romance.
This was my first time reading a story from Clarissa and am a bit skeptical about reading another...
I read all types of romance books, and dark romance has its own appeal but within this whole book is not one bit of love , romance, affection...nothing. Its just a bunch of sex scenes, rape, gang rape type things by brothers. The main female character is as hard as the three brothers who have absolutely no sex appeal or charm. This belongs in the more erotica catagory, not in the romance catagory.
The sex scenes aren't done well, the book is pretty much without any type of emotion. I wish I liked it, but I just didn't.
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
This is the first book where I truly hoped that the heroine would kill the hero - and his two brothers - then it got a whole lot worse.. and then I hoped they'd all just kill each other. Max is a Billionaire who lures broke Naomi into a three week 'anything goes' contract in exchange for $50 million and naive Naomi agrees so she can pay for her Dad's cancer treatment.
But when she gets to his Mansion Naomi realizes she's been played.. because there are eight other women just as shocked and they're joined by Max's two Brothers and it turns out that the three psychotic sadistic manipulative brothers each enrolled three women into signing their devious contract. Deadly games ensue which include the most shocking and nasty sex scenes I've ever listened to.. and I sped up and skimmed through a lot hoping that no-one would be left standing after the brutal rapes, the gang bangs, the pregnancy twist and all the violent and senseless murders.
So I tried to find the pot of gold at the end of this dark rainbow.. but it never came - it just got worse and worse, sicker and sicker.. and, at the end, I felt disgusted at myself for wasting precious time, that I'll never get back, on this nasty snuff-book. You could look at this as a clever twisted story of just what evil lengths a group of greedy humans will go to to survive.. and prosper - and that may work.. but I was expecting some sort of romance which sadly never came. Dual POV and I'm shocked that two respected narrators actually spoke this rubbish.. I thought I could count on their choices.
Worth a credit? Errr that, fellow listeners, would be a big fat NO.. but we're all different and just maybe you'll find the pot of gold that I clearly missed.
I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...
The story starts off with hope and promise but quickly becomes pain and despair. Actually the more you find out about what's going on the worse it gets. And then when you think it's all over, thing again. Naomi proclaims at the beginning that she wants money and power so that she can get some payback. Well her greed for money and power seems to be limitless, because she'll stop at nothing to win. Max sees that determination in Naomi which causes him to want her even more. If you can get past all of the death and violence, then maybe you can appreciate their kind of love. It's not for everybody.
Kai and Wen are absolutely amazing narrators and they make it possible to get through this very disturbing tale. Kudos to them.
I paid a reduced price but I'm glad I did. I wasn't sure I would after reading some of the reviews.
I am surprised. I've read other CW books and enjoyed them, but this book couldn't have taken more than an hour to write, edit, and publish.
Narrators are traditionally not my favs, and they were consistent here, also. I don't know what it is about their voices, but every book I've listened to with their narration is a book I couldn't take seriously. No matter the genre.
Kai and Wen did an amazing hob narrating this story. This book is so sick and twisted and sooooo delicious. I loved it. It's The Hunger Games meets Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty. This story is so dark and disturbing its amazing. I loved listening to every second. As I listened I didn't know what to expect. I mean this is one of those games that only the rich and powerful could come up with. I do have to say that I love how Naomi's mind works and how she continually surprises Max and his brothers. This story really blew me away and left me wanting more. Clarissa really did an amazing job and made something absolutely amazing.
Absolutely I will be listening to this again. The story is great and while the twists and turns will no longer be a surprise this book was a ride
I loved all the twists and turns and while you thought you saw it coming you didn't think it was possible. You never really knew who was on top and who was the good guy
Wen Ross was my favorite. I loved how the voice became darker when needed and you could get a vibe from the chapter based on the voice tone
FANTASTIC THE VERY VERY BEST AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT EVERY SECOND COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN DEFENTITLY READ IT THE ENDING IS A WOMAN'S BEST DISH SERVED COLD TO A MAN AY THE VERY END!!!:) MAKE ANOTHER TO THE TALENTED AUTHOR :)
Blogger who just got into listening to books and now I'm addicted!! I love listening to someone bring a book to life!
Holy crap, there is not one thing I can pick about this story! This is one that has it all and you can't pick just one thing about it to love. You have to love it as a whole.
Naomi would have to be my favorite here. She is strong, witty, fierce, driven!
The way they are able to change their voices to sound like different characters is amazing!
There are many reactions to this book, but I think you need to listen for yourself to know what reactions you will have!!
Say something about yourself!
This was a very good book/listen by Clarissa Wilde, it was very dark but so good and there were many twists and turns and you dont know what is going to happen. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross narration also helps by keeping you interested and you don't want to put the book/audiobook down. clarissa Wilde has written a story that seriously leaves you thinking wow. This is a wnderderful read that you won't be able to put down.
This was one weird book from start to finish, thoroughly enjoyed it though. Not sure about ending.
