I loved this book. I loved her insights and the things she said about her 2nd husband and their relationship. I could relate to many things she spoke about. I agree with so much about what she talks about. I wish I could meet her and be her friend. I hope she finds or has found the love of her life!

Becca is a lonely empty nester who's ready to start dating again. The only problem is that every man who comes into her life bores her to tears until she meets John. He's sophisticated and sexy, and he brings her into a new world of indulgence that is utterly satisfying in every way possible. As she learns more about her mysterious new beau and his secret society, Becca opens herself up completely. John's voyeuristic tendencies ignite Becca's passion, and his love of bondage takes her to a whole new level of sexuality.

The main character was very winey at times. I didn’t really see the need for her to be attacked. And why didn’t he invite her to India for the fete? And if she had any balls she would have hopped on a plane and gone there. The story only showed a tiny glimpse into that world. I kept waiting for more. It was just okay. And the ending was terrible, she was always second guessing herself all throughout the book and even at the end. If he loved her why didn’t he take her with him on his business trips. She clearly didn’t mind having sex with someone to get him his big deal! The story was not cohesive. The narrator made her out to be very immature and winey although she was an executive in her firm she worked at. And not enough sex.

They call me a slut. Maybe I am. Sometimes I do things I despise. Sometimes men take without asking. But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan. With one obstacle. Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take. He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note. When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything. I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

I loved this book. Because I’ve returned 2 new books and can’t find another one I want to listen to, I have listened to this book again. I loved both characters and how the story developed. I lived the writing and how descriptive she writes. The narrators were excellent. I really enjoyed this book. They made it come alive.

My name is Pet. My story is going to break your heart. The first thing you should know about me is that I'm a good girl. I follow directions. I bend at the waist. I do anything and everything my King tells me to. But King is demanding. King is dangerous. He wants to hurt me. And there is only one person who can help me run away from King.... Except I don't know if I want to leave him. I don't know if I can. Good pets always obey their master...but what if I want to have two?

I liked this series and I loved the voices. This fourth book I thought was a little too preachy saying the same thing over and over again just in different words. The story kept me listening but there also wasn’t enough sex especially in book 3 & 4. Tyler was sooooo hottttt and I wanted more sex. But the story although far fetched was still good. It just needed more sex! I love the sex scene in the parents hotel room! Especially what Maddie found in her mother’s closet in the hotel room.

I've never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn't mean I wanted to live in it. Maybe everyone wants what they can't have, but I should've thought it over before I unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me very carefully. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it's the other side of him I like best. Number Three is mostly reserved. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That's it. That's all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn't expect to like them.

Loved the story. Loved the characters! Loved all three men in a different way. Loved Brick at first the most but then grew to love Smith. And loved Chella. The sex scenes were very hottt and I don’t think controversial at all. I think if they are all consenting adults there is nothing wrong with it. If you can’t take the hottt sex scenes you probably shouldn’t be reading these kinds of books. I loved it!

I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

I loved this book but the only think I didn’t like was the voice of Roth it sounded like a woman’s voice. If at the end of the book you actually used a male voice why couldn’t you have used that voice throughout the whole book. It would have made the sex scenes that much more real and much more manly. Other then that it was a great story. Not that realistic but nonetheless a great hotttt story with great sex scenes.

When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior. In an attempt to protect him, Pino's parents force him to enlist as a German soldier - a move they think will keep him out of combat.

As I was reading this book I kept thinking that I couldn't believe it was a true story. What Pino endured throughout his life during WW2 is truly remarkable. The many things he bare witness to and still have faith to keep going was unbelievable. I hope they make his story into a movie so that we keep the memory alive of what happened in Italy during WW2 so people never forget. This was probably one of the best if not the best books I've ever read. The narrator did an excellent job of telling the story.

This book is sooo hotttt!!! The story is very entertaining and you want to keep listening to see what happens and to see what Alex does to Diana and how she reacts and changes her toon about being dominated. You learn about what a dom and submissive do in that world. Sebastian York is by far the best narrator of any book I've listened to. I always seek out books he is narrating first. Elena Wolfe is also good. I liked that the couple was married and that one of the components centered around their marriage. I was very bummed that their was no end and now I have to wait until jan to get the next book. I will be first in line to get this book.

I have already read all three Fifty shade books when the book first came out but because the second movie is coming out in February I wanted to listen to it again. I did not like the voice of Anastasia at all. At some parts she would sound okay but for most of the story I did not like her voice. I also think they should have had a real voice for Christian Grey. Aside from his Fifty shade side of Christian I wish all men would take note how to be more romantic and also learn a few things to do in the bedroom!
