For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies, never her own - until now....
Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything. Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes.
Damon has no desire to let her go, however. Serena is the woman he's long searched for, and it's up to him to convince her to stay when the game is all over with. He wants their fantasy to become their reality and for Serena to remain his pampered, cherished submissive.

"Incredibly intense and complex characters, delicious conflict and explosive sex scenes that fairly melt the print off the pages, Sweet Persuasion will have Maya Banks fans, new and existing alike, lasciviously begging for more." (Romantic Times)
I love M.B.'s books and this one was is no exception - it had everything you would expect from one of her books namely passion, pleasure, plenty of hot sex all wrapped up in a great story with sensative characters.
Whilst I'm not into bdsm I get that some are, and this book treats it as part of a loving willing and giving partnership that is her fantasy - which is what the story is all about and how it backfires on her. She soon realises that it's not at all what she wants with heartbreaking consequences. This book was touching as the two lovers became drawn to each other and it took you along with them as their passions journeyed to it's final heartwarming conclusion.
Worth a credit? Oh that would be a big fat YES I 'm loving this series and I'm downloading the rest of them now. This could be a stand alone book but why miss a single book in this brilliant series.
I LOVE READING AND LISTENING TOO BOOK S, MY FAVE AUTHORS ARE MAYAN BANKS, LORELEI JAMES , AND I JUST STARTED READING VIVIAN AREND,
Yes I would it has a wonderful couple that wants something in each other but are to blind to see what's right in front of them.
The great detail in the fantasy and reality of the auction.
I have it is good. Body of work as I have listened to all the sweet books .
It does have moments that I did shed a tear or twoz and all the books I have a strong reaction to just most are more sexy/sensual.
Even though I love every thing by Ms Banks, I was not going to read the series because of the bdsm and sharing with a "third" which I don't really get. I was drawn in by the reviews and I am glad I listened to this audio. This story was different in that there was love and respect between Damon/Serena even though I still don't get the bdsm. I also liked that Damon would not share Serena with another. Serena and her friends made me laugh throughout the book. Great Audio!!!
Ms. Banks weaves a wonderful story. While the detail is a bit raw for some, the characters snag you and won't let go!!! This is an excellent series - I wasn't going to continue but I keep going on to the next book because I can't wait to see what happens next. I will be sad when I get to that last book.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Hot Hot Hot!!!!!
It's all good.
Damon, wow what a man!!!
I did listen to it all in one sitting!!
This book is very sexually explict, which when it's done right, and in my opinion it was very right, is good. If strong sexual content bothers you then it's not for you. Otherwise, it's well worth a credit or the purchase price. I loved the first book in this series. Liked this one even better and I'm looking foward to book 3!!!!!!!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen.
I would recommend this book if you are not afraid of explicit content. I debate whether this is good or bad behavior for a woman but it is her choice and she can always say no.....
No specific memorable moments but I enjoyed hearing about all the other characters this series is about.
I am not enjoying the narrator, but I am able to tolerate her. She speaks too fast and there is something about her tone that sounds fake.
These books are toe curlers so beware....
Sweet, sensual, love
When a fantasy is fulfilled
When Serena decides to fullfill her own fantasy, not just her clients , and how she does it
I found the thought of a sex club...well different, and Serena's willingness to be auctioned as a slave...very different
It was a good storyline again, as always Maya Banks delivers.
Hot Sexy Love!
You pretty much can't go too wrong with any of her books. Shayla Black is another similar writer
Damon - very kind heart in a dominant man
Damon is an amazing character how knows exactly what he wants and what he's not willing to settle for. Serena gets caught up in her own professions of allowing people to live their dreams out in reality. As Damon leads her through what she believes is only her fantasy, she soon discovers its more than that. But Damon character provides what she needs patiently. The overall story is beautiful, it displays complete trust and vulnerably and both parties surrender.
This falls in the middle
Wicked Lovers Series by Shayla Black
Yes, she does the whole series and is fabulous.
This is probably the next to my least favorite in the series (Sweet Addiction is my least favorite) because there wasn't an action story mixed in (hunting a stalker, killer, etc.) The others can 'stand alone' - this one and Sweet Addiction not so much.
