This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

I loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love, blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day. Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again. Then I meet Liam Beckett, and everything I thought I had protected myself from is shoved back in my face.

UNORIGINAL. .UNINSPIRING. .UNEVENTFUL

and again we have a heroin t hat has suffered from some tragic event that has changed her..
supposedly she is sacred to love and be loved. Well so what! that is how much I disliked the heroin. and if she wasn't crying or having inter dialogue about why she she was scared. .there wouldn't be a story. the hero was ok just very pursuant on having the heroin. .don't know why because she was never receptive. I guess the death of her 1st husband was in part the reason..but never got that..
It says a lot about a book if you can skip chapters damn near most of the book and still didn't miss a thing..and again this is because all the heroin musings & inter dialogue. .

in the end of course they got their HEA. . ok now some sarcasm who would have guessed never saw that coming in the end the whole book was about self pity I just couldn't take it I would not recommend this book in my opinion to anyone .

Horrible dialog

I'm really into the single parent character type lately, especially when the kid plays a bigger part in the story. But even though this book has that, the dialog was so bad it was a struggle to finish it.

Loved it!

I really enjoyed these characters & their jourmey to their HEA. They had some pretty steamy sexy times! The narration did not always transition smoothly, but it wasn't a deterrent.

Swoon = Liam!

Can I just say I love Liam! He has such a big heart. I loved his persistence. He seen something in Megan and pursued her. Megan was such a broken soul. She has had enough heartache for a life time. I loved how Liam showed her to live again. Loved seeing the relationship unfold.

Loved It!

I loved the moment when Meghan realized that there was a real, true, unconditional love between her and her husband. I also loved how supportive Liam was to her and Molly!

"Sean Crisden's voice is NOT sexy"

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

Haper Sloan's storytelling is wonderful.

What did you like best about this story?

The way the story could go from steamy to so unbelievably sweet when the young child was in the scene shows Harper Sloan can definitely write a believable and relatable story.

How could the performance have been better?

A different male narrator.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A better male voice.

Any additional comments?

Sean Crisden's voice is not good for romance. He sounds like a cigarette smoking Dennis Leary. I could not really fall into the book with his voice as the "sexy hunk" -that rasp just didn't cut it and his ability to switch to the female voice made the female character sound whiny and annoying. Not that he isn't a good narrator - I think he should pursue mystery thrillers.

REALLY Good Story - which is why I kept listening and put up with it for the first two books - but it was painful. Looking forward to the next two books even more.

Oh Lee

I freaking loved Liam! The lengths this man goes to. Gah! All the swoonage. I love how Harper writes these amazing alpha men and the women who take them on. Fierce and flawless.

Great love story about second chances

This is a romantic, erotic love story.

Liam and Megan's story, which is part is attached to the Dee and Beck story from Beck: Corps Security, Book 3.

If you read Unexpected Fate: Hope Town, Book 1 you already have an idea who Megan is, she is the widow of a solder and she is an author. She has a 5 year old daughter which can wrap up any alpha male around her pinkie finger. Between tea parties with the princess of all alpha male Megan find herself feeling again. Only "LiLi" can come up with a plan and have the entire Corp. crew help out including Molly, the princess.

Liam has loved Megan since the moment her laid on on her, waiting and devising a plan to finally get her to feel, he not only helps Megan learn to live life again but to let go of the past and find a future with him.

I have to say my favorite scene is when Liam takes Megan muddying.

I love how Harper Sloan is intertwining the Corps. stories into her new series. I am not sure any other author has done this before but it is a great concept and is working for her. Looking forward to the rest of the stories.

Wow

So so loved this book. A second chance love for her and Liam like his Dad knowing instantly that she was the one. Molly with her absolute cuteness and this was a winner.
Narration was awesome too.
