Fiona Carlisle didn't think anything could hurt as much as finding her fiancé in bed with her sister. But receiving an invitation to the happy couple's engagement party comes a close second. Determined to prove to her family and herself that she's moved on, Fiona has every intention of attending, looking red-hot and with an even hotter man on her arm. And there's only one man who will do: renowned photographer and reputed playboy Michael Houston.
Fiona's rebound fling with Michael was a brief but erotic romp. Michael has made no secret of the fact that he's still interested. So when Fiona asks him to escort her to the engagement party, he agrees, with one condition: she must spend a sensual weekend with him picking up where they left off.
Intensely attracted to Michael, Fiona can't resist his offer for long. But when the weekend is over, will she be able to resist giving him her heart?
Although I don't usually consider "romance" novels serious literature, this one was very well written. The author constructs a good solid story, creates dynamic, intelligent, likeable characters, drops them into a plausible scenario that doesn't cause the reader confusion, and engages them in family dynamics anyone could relate to -- and offers a very satisfying conclusion. The erotica is extremely well done -- tantalizing, with lots of great build-up, and not just pointless fumbling. If the reader has anywhere near normal sensual response, that appetite will be skillfully whetted. Good job, Calista!

I read the preview of this book and thought the story was intersting - lots to explore with the circumstances given.
The story actually takes a back burner to the elaborate sex in this book
Would have really enjoyed it had it been drawn out a bit - and given us more substance than sex.

So worth it. I was very surprised at how well this short story was. I got it while being delayed while traveling. Nice listening good narrator and characters and they managed to put in some hot and steamy sex scenes. I did listen again later when I got settled. Could have easily been longer and done extremely well. Hope to find more of the same in the audible library.
The performance wasn't bad, but the story just didn't do it for me. The characters weren't really fully fleshed out. The whole thing was primarily sex, and that wasn't that well-written. Don't waste the time or money.
If you could sum up IOU Sex in three words, what would they be?
This story is about being true to yourself and standing up for your needs. Yes there is sex, two sex scenes but this is not a book for young males at all. <br/><br/>Tree words would be
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
At times while setting up the story I wondered if it was too wordy for such a short book.
What about Charise Greene’s performance did you like?
She put the right amount of emotion in the story and characters
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. Especially the confrontation scene.
Any additional comments?
The sex scenes were description but this book was about not about that. It was about he belief in herself.
I love a good love scene in a story but I felt like the author was writing for a young male audience! I was not impressed! I didn't get past the beginning of the story.
