Publisher's Summary

Nico

My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the roller-coaster of emotions that flood over me when I'm near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It's the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She's not only my assistant, but she's half my age. She gets under my skin and irritates the shit out of me, yet one smile, one laugh, and I'm melting into a puddle at her feet. Falling in love with her is a bad idea, a very bad idea, because she just may be the one person who breaks my heart for good this time.

Phoenix

Nico is my boss. He's demanding, bitter, brooding, and a downright bully at times. But, all that doesn't deter me from him at all. I can see the kindness and compassion in his eyes. I know the secret he's keeping from everyone and why he's so guarded with his heart. I don't care about his secret, nor do I care that he's twice my age. What matters is the undeniable attraction we feel for each other. If only he can just let go of the past and see what's right in front of him.

Author's note: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

    "So incredibly good!"

    This book. That is all I have to say! To begin with, I really didn't know what to expect. Nicole Garcia always writes books that entertain me, so I went in and knew it was going to be fun. But to my surprise, it didn't only entertain me, but it included so many different feels and twists that I could not stop listening to it! To start with, forbidden love...Nico is Phoenix's boss, and if that isn't bad enough, he is significantly older than she is. I love this premise, you always end up routing for them. But that isn't all this book has to keep you enthralled! There is suspense, danger, murder, business deals, overcoming a past, sadness, dealing with dementia...I cannot tell you how good this book is. The character development, the attention to detail and the seamless intertwining of story plots is incredible. I don't want to get caught up in a summary of the book, but if you want to disappear into a book, this one is for you. Come and meet Nico and Phe, along with Gio, Josh, Derrick and Nico's family(love his dad and grandmother!) and you will no doubt fall in love like I did.

    Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross give a stellar performance in the narration of this book. This team can provide every emotion and feel necessary to pull you into the story, and make you feel like you are actually watching it in your mind.

    Story
    "So much pain and not enough trust."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character has to be Giovanni. He is a type of character that gives comic relief however he is also the one that is the go-to person when an issue occurs. Gio understands both sides to what is happening between Phoenix and Domenico. He never flat-out took sides however he did try to be the peacemaker when it came to the fights that was going on between Phoenix and Domenico.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    When I first received this book the title Decadent Dreams seemed a bit off to me. I thought it was going to be kind of kinky and also maybe a bit sci-fi e or even paranormal. However I was pleasantly surprised by the story. I could not put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    I won this audiobook off of Nicole Garcia's Facebook page. This is the first book that I've ever listened to her and I have to say that this will not be the last. The way that she writes is amazing. My interest was totally focused on trying to figure out what what happened with Nico and Phoenix next.

    I have to say that Nico was going through a lot throughout this entire book. I understand that he has been lied to and hurt in the past but Nico seems to be the type of man who chooses to lash out verses two talk about what is going on. I did not like the way he treated Phoenix throughout the entire book. He ran hot and cold throughout the entire book. I just wanted him to make a decision and stick with it. I understand that his guard has always been up but Nana, Gio, and his father all seen in Phoenix what Nico could not, she is not his ex-wife Karen.

    I also like the twist in the story. I did not see that coming at all and I really enjoy that. I will pick up another Nicole Garcia book and I cannot wait to see what she does with other characters. However I need more Gio in my life. Also I need to figure out what is going to happen with Josh and Derek.

    Story
    "Nico is a workaholic who has had issues since his"

    Nico is a workaholic who has had issues since his lying and cheating wife died. No one knows what has been going on in his life.
    In comes Phe who is brother Gio hires as his personal assistant which leads to so much more. She is like a breath of fresh air to Nico and the company.
    This book is full of everything. You love Nico and Phe even when you are yelling at the book and Gio is just crazy.
    This is my first book from this author and I am ready for more.
    The narrators are amazing.

    Story
    "Brilliantly Done!"

    Nico was distrustful of women because his deceased wife had cheated on him and she only wanted his money. Then his partner hired him an assistant. Phe was a stubborn bundle of spitfire. She was small, had red hair and could give anyone what for. This one can light your fuse! Well written story and the narrators make you think you are right there watching the characters. Lots of emotions are pulled out of you. Excellent!!

    "A love unexpected"
    What made the experience of listening to Decadent Dreams the most enjoyable?

    Kai and Wen as usual bringing an amazing story to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how it had it all a bit of mystery, unexpected plot twists and a love story like no other.


    Have you listened to any of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Every single Kai and Wen narration is like no other. They have this amazing ability to give you those first time butterflies


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dreams do come true

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    "Decadent indeed"

    This story was fantastic. I had to get used to the male voice. Once I did I was addicted. I love when the audio book sounds like a play.
    Nico and Phe had a great push and pull relationship. I wish there was another story within this world of Decadent. Gio? pretty please.
