This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best seller Claire Contreras comes a new, sexy stand-alone novel...

When my sister asked me to take a course for her while she went out of town for work, I reluctantly agreed. I wasn't expecting to step into a university auditorium filled with overactive libidos lusting after the professor. And I certainly wasn't expecting to become one of those women myself, but there's something about Lorenzo Costello that makes him irresistible. He's the kind of man mothers warn their daughters about - mysterious, gorgeous, experienced, wild - and for some crazy reason he wants me. 

I should run far away and save myself from the impending heartache. So why am I racing toward him? I’m totally going to get burned. A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed. He'll make ashes of me.

Because You're Mine is NOT a dark romance! It's sexy and will keep you listening.

It was ok.

I said it’s ok because it’s not the type of story I normally look for. I like my romances with a longer time line and not insta love/lust. The concept is sweet and it has its ups and downs. I’m sorry if this seems nit picky but I would have liked hearing from the male character’s point of view a bit more and, as stated before, a longer time frame. That being said, the voice actors did a fabulous job and I’d recommend this for those who enjoy the more basic love stories. I probably won’t listen to this again but I also don’t feel like it was a waste of time or money.

Okay story, bad female narrator

The story was okay; not great, but also not terrible. The thing that ruined the book for me was the female narrator. She sounded so breathy and whiny (like she was trying to sound super sweet/young) that it kept pulling me out of the story.

BAD NARRATION CAN RUIN A GOOD BOOK

The story was pretty good, however the female narrator ruined it for me. There is nothing I dislike more than characters that are supposed to be in their 20's and super attractive, yet they sound like they are 60 with emphazema. The male narrator was good, the female character not so much. Overall story was pretty ok..

Hard to follow plot

This book was disappointing. The sex scenes we're great, but the rest left a lot to be desired. I downloaded this book because of Stephen Dexter because I love his voice, but he doesn't narrate that much. When it comes down to it, the narration was good, but the plot was all of the place and I felt like there were still loose ends when the book ended. Also, there were major plots points just kind of shoved in that could've used more development. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this. There are better audiobooks out there.

Criminally Fabulous

This is the type of reading i like. Slightly dark drizzled with sex,romance and love! “Why did you come after me”...because you’re mine...sounds possessive but what girl doesn’t want to be wanted like that. This book has it all!! Loved loved loved it

Pleasantly surprised by this mafia romance

When I picked up this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. The blurb gave me enough to know that it was a different trope than I normally read, so it was going to be different than what I usually read. I usually stick to the tropes that are in my comfort zone, so I stepped out of it for this book. While I am not going to gush all about this book, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the story. It wasn't a stereotypical mafia book like I was expecting it to be. This story definitely kept me listening, especially as I reached the halfway point when the plot really started to pick up its pace.

I won't go crazy and say I want to read all the mafia books I can find now, but I will say I may be a little more open-minded after reading this book.

The Mafia world.

This book introduced me to the life of a mafia family, the good, the bad, and the ugly! The is an element of mystery but you do not lose the romance involved in the book. Cat is determined to make her own way in life. She is not interested and hand outs or riding on the tails of her family name. She has found her place in the world of dance and she has perfected her talent. Then you have Lorenzo and he is everything Cat should hate but she does not. They have instant chemistry. I liked watching their story unfold and seeing how they over came their worlds constantly colliding.

Overall 3.75 stars

I really enjoyed the beginning and if I had to rate the first half of the book I would say a solid 4 stars. Lorenzo is the kind of alpha I love! I didn't mind the insta-attraction and as the story unfolds we see that it's been years in the making. The heroine was likable up until the last half of the book where she would not stop crying over everything. The ending dragged for me and I wasn't all that invested at that point. I'm not sure why but it sort of lost me. There is one important scene where an important secondary character contradicts himself in the same chapter and that is one of my pet peeves. If he wanted it to be her why would he say he loved someone else? Also I never understood the way the mafia in this story worked. Were they rival families? Did we only meet one family? Despite my struggles I'm glad I finished it because I wanted to see how it ended for the H and h.
Narration was 4 stars

GREAT BOOK! On the edge of my seat!

This was surprisingly a great listen! Loved the plot and all its twists! Usually with romance novels you kinda know what’s going to happen next, but not this one. I was at work on the edge of my seat listening dying to know what would happen next.
I’ll definitely be listening to more from this author.
