But after a wild night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she shocks everyone - including herself - when she decides to leave the only life she's ever known and set out on her own.

Would you try another book from J. A. Redmerski and/or Lauren Fortgang?

This story is very slow and doesn't hold up as erotica. It is basically a young adult romance. A cute story if that is what you are looking for, but I couldn't finish it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure, probably one of my old favorites.

Did Lauren Fortgang do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes the narrator was not the problem.

Did The Edge of Never inspire you to do anything?

Nope

Books talk about sparks flying. F--k that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm. Only one problem: She wouldn't tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest f--king night of my life. Now I've had a taste of unicorn pussy - the sweetest, rarest of all pussy - and I need it again. So what's an asshole to do? I took this problem to the street, a missed connection gone viral. And when I find her? I'm keeping her.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I literally finished this book a few days ago and couldn't remember the story when writing the review. Once I reacquainted myself with the exerp I realized that the story was not only ho hum but totally unrealistic. It was like the middle of the book was missing. They went from skewing once and then, let's get married. I have no intention of reading the second book. Boring.

What was most disappointing about Meghan March’s story?

How unrealistic it was.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Not really but the narration was not the problem.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

The story would have to be expanded to make any sense.

Jonathan Drazen is a known womanizer and a gorgeous piece of man I'm not letting into my heart. Ever. Yeah, he's rich, beautiful, charming as hell, and he has a wit as sharp as a double-edged razor... but he's made it perfectly clear that this is a short-term f--k. Three nights, tops, then we part like sexually satisfied grown-ups. I believe him when he says he can't love me. I'm not trying to fall in love, either. We get in. Get it on. Get the hell out. Done. Right? Right.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No

What did you like best about this story?

No I had to continuously stop listening for weeks at a time because of the narrators voice.

Did Jo Raylan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The female narrator would sort of whine/moan in an irritating way.

Did Beg Tease Submit - Sequence One inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

Male narrator was great.

Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all, and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment.

Would you try another book from Kyra Davis and/or Grace Grant?

Another reviewer hit the nail on the head when she said it's too much dialog in Kasey's head. Waxing poetically until you want to die. If only the dialog between the two characters was developed.

Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he's your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy...among other things, and it won't happen again. Jules won't risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

I'm not sure, it was so uneventful and dull that I don't know who would enjoy it. Possibly someone who likes a passionless novel.

Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

I've tried to listen but have fallen asleep twice, I won't make it in the car with is one, I'll fall asleep on the road. There is absolutely no chemistry between the characters. It's unfortunate because I've read another short story from this Auther and it was good. Maybe it's the narrator?

When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

James has initiated Bianca into a dark and drugging world of passion and pain. He taught her about her own submissive, masochistic nature, and she fell swiftly and deeply in love with the undeniably charming and impossibly beautiful Mr. Cavendish, but a painful misunderstanding and the return of the brutally violent demons of her past have combined to overwhelm Bianca, and, confused and hurt, she pushes him away.
