They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women.

I guess the narrating was ok but I found this book pretty boring. No real climax to the story.

I just couldn't get into the story from the start. It was hard for me to get through it although I did it was boring and not like the other books in the series which to me were way more exciting and interesting. Carter McKay was such an unlikable characters to me which had an effect on how much I enjoyed the book. Mainly it was just one hot scene to the next with no real depth.

He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day.

I enjoyed this book SO much. From start to finish it was captivating, funny, and endearing. I fell in love with the lead male. The only bad thing I can say and it's really not that bad is the narrator could've done a better job voicing the male characters. At times I wasn't sure until a few lines into the chapter if it was Chloe or Bennett talking. Lots of hot scenes. Definitely worth the purchase.

When a stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her, cable sex-talk-show host Morgan O'Malley turns to Jack Cole - a self-proclaimed dominant - for help. Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what's more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it and how she starts to crave his masterful touch.

Pretty much cringed through entire book. There's more than a few cheesy love scenes and I never want to hear the word Cher again. I really didn't like the lead characters and the female narrator did a better job at male voices than female. At about chapter 11 it got a bit better.

She stood out in his club like a gem, unspoiled and untouched. A lamb among wolves, she clearly didn't belong. Drawn to her innocence he watched as she was surrounded by men who saw what he did - but no one but him could touch her. He summoned her to his private quarters. He sensed her fear. He also recognized the desire in her eyes. And he knew she wouldn't leave before he possessed her. She had no need to know his secrets. Not until he had her under his complete and utter control.

Although I got into the story enough to get to the end I'm glad it's over. I usually love this narrator in fact that's why I chose this book. He did a terrible job at the female voices. Story was unbelievable and repeatative.

I'd led a selfish existence. I liked who I was. Hell, I loved myself. Women threw themselves at me, and I took what they offered without remorse. I promised them nothing. I sank my teeth into life, holding on to it like my very existence depended on it.

It took a hell of a lot of fast-talking and more than a few speeding tickets before Mitch Thompson convinced Constable Anna Coleman to take him for a ride. Only now that she's loosened off her stiff RCMP uniform, it's not nearly enough. Their secret sexual escapades are mind blowing, but Mitch wants more than her body, he wants her heart. It's a dangerous road to walk, and Anna doesn't know how far she can safely tread. Bad boy Mitch may have lured her wild side out to play, but giving in to their increasingly passionate desires could endanger her very civilized career.

Just call me Mister O. Because your pleasure is my superpower. Making a woman feel "oh god that's good" is the name of the game, and if a man can't get the job done, he should get the hell out of the bedroom. I'm talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time. I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.
