Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle's freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. It's well written, intriguing & the narration is spot on.

What does Kylie Stewart and Eric Rolon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They bring the characters to life. It adds so much dimension to the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Do you really want the truth?

Any additional comments?

Oh, What a tangled web we weave!!!

Oh my word what a thrill it was to tune into this book each day. The narration is spot on and draws you that much more into the story of Elle, Penn & Nameless.

Elle lives in her golden tower but wants so much to be a normal girl. One night she decides to head out on her own & see the beauty that is her city. She is accosted by two thugs in an alleyway and fear runs through her at the thought of what these two will do to her and no one will be the wiser as to where she is as she never told anyone he plans. In the nick of time a hooded, nameless man saves her and she ends up sharing some very special moments with him. These memories will live with her for the next three years as she continues to try to solve who nameless is.

Enter Penn Everett. The man is possessive, demanding, commanding and makes Elle want to do things she would never dreamed of. The man is shrouded in mystery and all Elle wants is to learn more about the mystery man. Soon the lies and twists of truths are too much and she cannot continue on with someone who seems so full of deceit.

Now this one ends on mother of all cliffhangers. Seriously you're left utterly speechless. Luckily I have the next one to listen to. So I'm all set to find out who Mr. Everett really is.

We were prisoners of forbidden love, just like Romeo and Juliet but without the poetic, old English double speak and Italian marble balconies. A coal miner's son, Kellan Braddock always knew he'd follow in his late dad's steel-toed boots. He also always knew that he'd never love anyone as much he loved Rylan Merritt. But sometimes love isn't enough.

Wow I've only recently gotten into audio books and boy was this one a great listen.

I love a good second chance romance and this one hit the mark perfectly.

Ryland hails from the good side of the tracks but that doesn't stop her from falling for Kellan who comes from the other side. On graduation night he doesn't come back for her and she leaves town without talking to him. Fast forward 7 years and Ryland is back home and things are heatung up between the two again.

Will the past be put to rest and will they get their second chance?

The narration of the book was spot on. Even though a man does the while narration his inflections and changes in voice and pitch were perfect.

I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didn't expect her to become my friend. I didn't expect to fall in love with her. The first rule of business is to never touch your employees. I think there is another rule about not falling for your best friend - a rule against imagining the curves of her body, or the way her breathing would change if I pulled down her panties and unzipped my pants.

What did you like best about this story?

OMG Love in Lingerie is a long, slow burn. This is an office romance turned friends to lovers read.

It is HOT AF!!! Trey & Kate start off as boss & employee. Trey has a strict no fraternization policy until Kate walks in. The woman who he hopes can help save his company: Marks Lingerie. Kate is nothing if not the utmost of professionalism but Trey Marks is utterly delectable and they end up being placed in many situations that could lead to some naughty office behavior. They both try their best to keep it business like & friendly. As the story develops they become best friends. They rely deeply on each other while both having very naughty and salacious thoughts about each other.

I actually listened to LIL on Audible and let me tell you Rose Dioro is a master narrator. Her voice actually drew me very deeply into the story. I loved how she could change her voice & timber to suit each character. Alessandra's book combined with Rose's voice was a match made in heaven.

The ending of this book got me right in the feels so much. It was just the sweetest ending.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I really liked the story but I just couldn't get into the narration of it. I think if I read the book and not listened to it my rating would be higher overall.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Lucy James?

Maybe
