How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Luc's entire future is planned out - but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa, a strip club owner with whom Luc recently shared one night of wild abandon. It left Luc terrified by his loss of self­-control - and Alyssa desperate for more. But Luc is not the only man desperate to have Alyssa.... And that's just one of her secrets - secrets as dark and mysterious and delicious as her fantasies.

Woah!!!! Finger licking Good!

Wow! Black is getting better and better! Ok... we already know who Luc is from Decadent. Luc and Deke had the threesome with Kimber... We already know Alyssa from Wicked ties... the owner of the strip club. I vaguely remember in Decadent the mention of these to hooking up and the mention of the 6 hour romp. It did not register until now.

OMG! Black! WHAT! If you have listen to or read Decadent, Luc really has come full circle now. I love this story. Luc and Alyssa is so mismatched but so perfect and Luc... dang.. the way Black expand his character...OMG... it is sooo hot!!! If you enjoyed the smex from Wicked Ties and Decadent, well then, you will go crazy for this, plus the story is awesome too.

One fact I love about series is how they just keep going. Its like the characters just keep living.. ya know. I was wondering what was gonna happen to Luc and now I know.

Maynard is really getting up there with Xe Sands in narration. I really like her. She is very good. All her females from book to book sound the same, so I have to adjust a bit other than that... her narration is really good. Totally worth the buy/or credit...

He's a man but she's A WOMAN

Do not listen to this is a public surrounding, it starts hot and keeps you there. Luc is the man but Alyssa is a woman who wants him and will use what she has to get him. These two are the best characters in the series because their story has been building up from the others books. We know Luc has a plan and we know why, but he should have told Alyssa because she intends to rock his world. When he loses control theres only one woman who can satisfy him. I also like the introduction of our other love interest Tyler, a girl can't go wrong there.
Lot's of unexpected suspenseful events in this one, I could not predict who our main villian could be.

you can't help but love this series

it's the truth. you can't help but fall deeply in love with these characters with their broken hearts and souls, trying desperately to be mended with sex to fill their empty holes. shayla black has such a way with words and this series is beautifully written. i usually want to listen to them two or three times before "letting them go" back into the void of my listening library, it's that good. they have me captured from beginning to end. the stories are never terribly long yet shayla manages to get so much into the story.

book three is just as charming as book one, and i loved the story between Luc and Alyssa. i couldn't get enough.

The title says it all!

I am so glad more of Shayla Black's books are coming to audible. This is a great series. I love Luc and was glad to hear his story after his part in Deke's story. Shayla Black is the master of erotica. Her books are not just a steamy love scenes but have a great story. This one keeps you guessing all the way through. Everytime you thought you knew who was causing all the problems she throws you a twist. Shayla's next book in this series comes out Nov 12 th and I can't wait to hear Hunter's Story.

This is an adult book with very erotic love scenes so please know what you are getting when you get this book and don't give bad reviews because you did not take the time to read others reviews. If you are a fan of Fifty shades of grey you will love this series and the men in this series.

Definitely Hot, But...

Delicious is another great book by Shayla Black. It is well written and very steamy, but I was beginning to tire of the guy and girl who love each other but won't admit it until there is mortal danger storyline. However, that being said, I did have a difficult time putting it down and allowing myself to sleep when appropriate. Also, I will still be continuing in the series. So, it is a conflicted feeling I review with. I still can not say enough good things about Lexi Maynard's narration of these stories. It is easy to keep track of who is talking and the voices are enjoyable. The book, although somewhat predictable was still very enjoyable and ultimately worth the credit.

Action packed

Would you consider the audio edition of Delicious to be better than the print version?

Audios are more intense then print. I enjoyed both versions.

What other book might you compare Delicious to and why?

No others compares. Just listen to the entire series. They are all Deliciously good.

Which character – as performed by Lexi Maynard – was your favorite?

Lexi Maynard brought every character alive in all four audios. I can not wait for the rest of the Wicked series prints to go to audio.

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

Seriosly? From the start.

Any additional comments?

Hurry up and release the entire Wicked series to audio. Waiting!!!!

Great Listen!!!!!!!!

What made the experience of listening to Delicious the most enjoyable?

All the emotional twists. I love how strong Alyssa is and all the things she has done with her life. I love how much Luc loves her and all he is willing to go through even when he thinks the worse. Not to mention the danger to Alyssa's life.....

What was one of the most memorable moments of Delicious?

Way too many to say!!

What does Lexi Maynard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It just takes you away and you don't have to worry about turning a page.

Any additional comments?

Well worth the credit. I would recommend getting the books in order. Wicked Lovers Series: Wicked Ties, Decadent, and Delicious. All of them are great!!!!!!!!

Not as good as the previous two...

This girl seemed downright dumb to me. She got mad at him over the most ridiculous things. She would let her bodyguard touch all over her and prance around naked in front of him, then get all indignant when she felt Luc didn't show her enough respect or accused her of sleeping with other people. And pretty much everything she did left me rolling my eyes throughout the story.

(Spoilerish)
Then there was the whole thing at the end with the custody papers... So he offers to sign sole custody over to her to prove that she was the most important thing to him, even more important than the baby (his words). First off, any halfway decent parent always puts their child first. Period. Enough said. Anything less makes him a selfish parent who puts their love life over their kid (*cough...like her mother did...cough cough*). Second, why is him wanting the baby a bad thing? She started the marriage with the hopes of them falling in love later, knowing that he wanted the baby. So she finds out he wanted the baby and doesn't think he loves her and she flips out? How in the hello does that make any sense whatsoever. He wants the baby, he wants her... You'd think it's a win-win, right? Not for this rocket scientist heroine. :-/ She has to be hit over the head with concrete to accept him.

I was hoping for a better story for Luc because he was such a good guy in the last one. I felt for the tragedy this heroine overcame, but her relationship with him fell flat for me. She was just too stupid (which is weird since she was supposed to be so well educated). And it had absolutely nothing to do with her career choices. She just had HORRIBLE judgement. Hopefully the next one is better. If not, I'll be moving on to another author.

As for the narrator, she's just okay for me. She does a decent job but sometimes sounds super whiney. I've heard worse, but I've also heard a lot better. She doesn't make or break it either way.

Angst-filled tale

Part of a series. Can be read as a standalone but watch for spoilers.

I tried to enjoy this book but... either my stomach was in knots because it felt like I was trapped in an elevator with a couple fighting, or I was yelling "What an #*%hole!" into the air, or I was rolling my eyes because how many psycho/rapist/murderers can be obsessed with the same woman? The main male character, Luc, is really an over-the-top douchebag to Alyssa for most of the book.

On the positive side, I like that the author has characters that crisscross through several books. The characters have depth and interesting back stories.

My steaminess rating: Hot Damn, for graphic sexy times, some kink, and dirty talk.

Narrator is okay.
