I am not sure how I found this book but once I started listening to it I couldn't stop. First off you could not ask for a better narrator. I listen to lots of audible books but I must say Ryan West puts this story on a whole new level. I just found this series so I never read the books but I am so happy I found this audio series. I give this book five stars in everything. This was a very sexy Dom story on top of being super funny. In this book you got to laugh and you got good sex. There is no going wrong with this book/series. Lexi Blake writes great stories and Ryan West really knows how to narrate them.

Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him...

I absolutely loved this book. It has been a while since I found a book that has great narrators and a great story line. I could not put this book down. I usually like to stretch out my books but this particular audiobook was going 24/7. I'm excited to read more books by this particular author. I hope the narrators of her other books are as good as they are for this particular book. This was one of those books that you wanted to go on and on and never end. The story of Chase and Grace was a great love story . I love the POV from both characters. If you have a credit use it for this book it will not be a waste.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This series just fell short for me. I'm not sure if it was the narrator or just the story. I tried all three books and not one clicked for me. I love this author but this series just never got going for me. I kept trying but even this last book didn't do it. This series was a bomb. I am thankful that I can get a refund. I would be very disappointed if I couldn't return this book.

If you’ve listened to books by J. Kenner before, how does this one compare?

One of the worst.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul - and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.

I love this offer so I really wanted to love this book. I have read the Damien Stark more than once so I was really looking forward to this Trilogy. I'm on book number two and I'm just not feeling it. It really has a lot of ups and downs at some points I'm like yes!! And others I just want to stop listening. I might like the book better if I read it myself instead of listening to the audio version. I feel like this narrator over dramatize everything it just got hard to listen to. I hope the third book is much better.

I love the Fifty books. I have listened to them many times. I'm not sure if it was who it was narrated by or the story. It took me forever to get through it. His voice was so boring it put me to sleep. It was just to monotone for this story. I think maybe with a different narrator I could have enjoyed the book more. Maybe with the next book can be a little more animated. I may have to return this book I'm not sure I want to use my credit on this.

The first in a sexy new series by Katy Evans, New York Times best-selling author of the REAL series... This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name, though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

The darling daughter of a champion Thoroughbred breeder, Camille "Cami" Hines has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was happy with her boyfriend, her life, and her future - until she met Patrick Henley.

"Trick" blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her - and he just happens to be so sexy she can’t keep her hands off him.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narration was horrible. Between the story line and the narration it was a big mess. I kept hoping it would get better and it didn't,

What could M. Leighton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

As an author i love her. Most of her books are pretty good. I'm not sure what happen here. I feel the story was drawn out way longer than it needed to be.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Podehl and Amy McFadden ?

The story was already hard to listen to and with Nick and Amy it got worse.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment that I spent my money on the book.

He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past - and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him - and us - forever.

What made the experience of listening to Release Me the most enjoyable?

The Characters captured my heart.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Release Me?

There were to many to just choose one.

Have you listened to any of Sofia Willingham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first book I have listened to of Sofia Willingham. I loved her voice. Her performance was right on. I plan to see what else she has done and listen to it as well.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were two moments that really moved me. One was when Damien learned of her scares and when she cut her self and her hair at the end of the book.
