Publisher's Summary

Men ruin women...especially men like Chase Davis. Good looking, intelligent, rich, and powerful - I never stood a chance. When he entered my life, I was finally healing after having barely survived the men of my past. My soul sisters told me to take a chance, to let someone in. I let him in, and he surrounded me with a light so bright that I was blinded by the truth.

Men don't ruin women. They devour them in every way that counts.

A really good read/listen if a bit rushed at times

This story had a lot of similarities to 50 Shades but was still a good read/listen. The narrator is enjoyable and does a great job of switching it up for the different characters!

Really 50 Shades of Grey knock off

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

This book has no story and the reader is horrible. It's got the same verbiage and the same story as 50 Shades of Grey.

What could Audrey Carlan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not written a knock off

What didn’t you like about Callie Dalton’s performance?

Nothing her narration was horrible. It sounded like she was just reading the book. No conviction.

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

Disappointment

GREAT STORY, TOO CLOSE TO 50 SHADES, THOUGH!

There are similarities to the Fifty Shades series, but Ms. Carlan did managed to put her own spin into it. Gillian, the female character, is broken down from a domestic relationship and comes in with baggage, while Chase, plays her "knight in shining armani". They'd quickly fell in love, and the rest go from there. Then it got an interesting twist where now there is a stalker involved. Is it an ex or someone who wants to drive her out of Chase's life?

if only the stereotypes weren't the driving force

The story is a ok story, the romance is typical and it's lusty. But my biggest problem with it is that the side characters are used sooo annoyingly. "Oh maybe we should have a Latina character? But let's not have her be anything more than a Spanish accessory to the boring main character. Make sure she speaks Spanish every 3 works so you remember SHES LATINA AND SPICY BLAH" or "oh what about a hippy chick?? Let's make her a yoga instructor." it's just like ummm ok great imagination ya got there...

I loved it but there might be triggers

This is a beautiful story that involves women who have faced physical abuse but have fought back to own their lives and fall in love again. Be warned though, if you have been in a similar situation and haven't left it but yet you might be triggered by some of the events in the book. However, maybe it will help I don't know. This is a truly excellent read.

Excellent story

Love the story line but the voice of the reader comes of robotic and took awhile to get used to. It comes alive during direct interactions but mostly narrates robotically.

Kind Of Drug Out

The book really didn't get into anything until maybe the last 2 hours. Then the cliffhanger.... It is like many other books I have listened to. I still enjoyed it. Sex scenes were explicit, so if you don't like that then certainly not for you.
