Publisher's Summary

"My misbehaviour during the exam added to my awareness of what I wanted sexually. For all that Tiggy was perfectly friendly and polite, she represented everything I wasn't, and everything I'd set myself against. So, in different ways, did all the macho-men, the stuck-up landowners, the crude farm boys, my archetypal males, all the figures from my fantasies. Given that I wanted to be restrained, it made sense for it to be done by those types rather than the nice guys. After all, just because somebody turns me on doesn't mean I have to like them."

When university lecturer Hazel Jones takes the most popular of her female environmental-science students as a lodger, she is expecting a procession of attractive men to follow. What she doesn't expect is Tiggy's diary to be left out every day. Knowing what her lodger gets up to, she is unable to resist reading it. It's not quite what she expects, and the revelations quickly lead her down a path she never expected to take.

    Story
    "Throw away your copies of 'Fifty Shades'..."
    Any additional comments?

    Hazel Jones, a 35-year-old professor and honored academic at the fields of Biodiversity and Environment, lives a quite common life, dates a nice and understanding colleague, works for sustainable development, fights against bad use of natural resources, so and so, but something bothers her... Not exactly what is there, but what is not, what is missing in her life, more specifically, in her sexual life...

    Dr. Jones is not satisfied at all. She wants more: her fantasies of being taken by several man at once, fantasies of being tied, bound and even spanked torment her incessantly. Muscular men aligning in front of her, giving and receiving all pleasure she had been denying herself for so many years... Wow, that's a lot happening inside her mind... That's when Tiggy, one of her most brilliant female students, asks for being her lodger. Nothing special happens, however, until Hazel starts to secretly read Tiggy's private diary... That small and delicate notebook turns Hazel's life upside down...

    Listening to the story is highly enjoyable. The author cleverly approaches several delicate subjects, in a well-humored and intelligent way. That's probably one of the best features of this book: the witty ways the author leads the reader along the story. Background and parallel plots are quite shallow, but there is no problem about it, the way Hazel's intimate dilemmas are presented are so nice... as well as her sexual adventures... Reader's performance is also very good, specially the impersonation of the obnoxious but highly-seductive Miles, who brings the listener most of the finest moments of the narrative.

    Highly recommended!

    "Tame"

    Pretty tame overall. Funny, eventually, but hardly erotic.
    A bit disappointed. Thought it might eventually become raunchy, but it never really does. The build up is dreadfully slow.

    "Now THIS is sexy!!"

    This was my first erotic audiobook.
    I must say that I, AND my partner, have found it extremely arousing!!
    Hereby, I highly recomend it for couples, males and females.
    Happy listening!

    "Couldn't finish it."

    This story bounced between sexual fantasies and boring environmental crap that went on, and on and on. Too much stuff that the normal human doesn't know or care about. And the fantasies weren't even well developed or titillating. I couldn't even finish this one.

    "What a WASTE of credits"

    If you could rate a book a ZERO, it would be this book.

    All I can say is DON'T! What a bore.

    "Fun and Steamy!"

    As erotica goes, this was a well written story. I didn't like the narrator but loved the sex scenes.

    "witty and fun"

    A good surprise for an erotic book, very well written, giving credible characters and situations and above that, funny. It describes the internal travel of an ecological activist to get in touch with her innermost desires. The sex scenes are not overdone, meaningful and well placed, the context is fleshed out and the story catches the attention.
    I enjoyed this book a lot, and thus recommend it.

    "Excellent all around"

    I can add little to the previous reviews - I agree with them all - a very enjoyable listen. The writing, characters and narration are wonderful. All I ask is for a lot more offerings from this author from Audible, with the same narrator. Truly intelligent erotica, scrimping on neither.

    "Good Story"

    I enjoyed this book. This is a nicely told story that kept me in suspense and wanting to listen longer. Relaxing yet stimulating at the same time.

    "Slow burner but worth the wait"

    A rather different erotic novel than i am used to but none the less very enjoyable.
    Great characters that take a long time to get going but that only adds to the tension and the final 4 chapters are very erotic.
    The main characters Tiggy and Hazel just ooze sex appeal and leave you wanting more of the two of them.Very well written and highly arousing i will no doubt be enjoying this again and again.

    "Very enjoyable in the end"

    I purchased this book some months ago but never got round to listening to it. When I downloaded it I don't think the book had been reviewed, so I am grateful to the other reviewers comments advising of the slow start, which it certainly was, else I might not have persevered. Whilst very erotic in places, what amazed me about the story was the knowledge of the author on environmental biology and rights issues, which link the main themes of the story. Not convinced by the Miles sub-plot, and whilst well narrated, loved the breathless Tiggy characterisation, found the upper middle-class tones adopted for Hazel as unconvincing for a left wing provincial lecturer. Some unexpected twists and a bottom clenching ending! Worth a listen enjoy!

    Starts a little slowly, but builds relentlessly to a delicious climax... and ends.

    Highly enjoyable, well narrated and certainly recommended.

    "Progressively good then................."

    The narrator fantasises constantly about being taken en-masse by rugby teams etc. but never quite makes it.

    She does however have some delicious other escapades with her acquaintances.

    I listened to this whilst on holiday and I enjoyed it for the light-hearted romp that it is. The narrator has an excellent knowledge of environmental issues as Glyn has commented which lift the story somewhat.

    I must say I was slightly disappointed with the ending and it left me wondering if the book had been accidentally chopped. The Audible endpiece came in a little too quickly to be safe so I will have to find a copy of the written work somewhere and check it.

    Not a literary masterpiece but a good holiday listen :-)

    Wittily humorous with a pace that moves along with brilliant narration. What a super way to introduce different forms of erotica. We need more from this author and this narrator . Well worth the purchase
