Lola Winters doesn't think she can escape her life as a waitress - until she receives a shocking proposition from a sexy stranger. Wealthy businessman Beau Olivier wants Lola for a night, and in order to get her, he's willing to make her dreams come true. But Beau's conditions are explicit. From sunset to sunrise, Lola must submit all of herself to him - body, mind, and soul. Because nothing is more important to Beau than maintaining control...especially over his possessions.

This is kind of "Indecent Proposal" but Ms Hawkins tells this story so well and Christina Fox does such a good job with narration that it weaves you in so well that for me it was impossible to stop. Have to listen to the second one immediately..

I have read T L Swan's Stanton series and it was romantic, sexy and the story plot was exciting this one did not do it for me. Narrator was good and I usually prefer audio books but this book just dragged. Wasn't sure I could even finish it. Would like to see the others in audio form though.

I am a little obsessed and so very excited.

My cock has an appetite. A huge and very particular appetite: blond, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although that's a story for another day.) As a high-profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online. My rules are simple: one dinner. One night. No repeats. This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less. At least it was until Alyssa...

This was in some ways a hard listen Narrators were EXCELLENT but the story was so tortured that as mesmerizing as it was in some ways it was a hard listen. I did like that though softened the character of "Andrew" remained throughout the book. Great listen Narrators were so good that I cannot imagine that reading would have had the same impact

Jake Weston and I met under a cloud of cliches: Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy screws girl. He was the sexiest, cockiest man I'd ever encountered, but I had no idea he was a senior pilot when we met. No idea we worked for the same airline, and he had secrets just like me.

Nothing seems out of bounds for the handsome blond billionaire, and he's not afraid to do what it takes to have his way. That includes having his way with Kira's body.
