Publisher's Summary

When it comes to sex, Bella Massey wants a man who'll get down on his knees and beg. And although she's got the hots for firefighter Marcus Aiello, she can't believe an alpha male like him could have a submissive bone in his body.

Marcus isn't looking for a relationship, but Bella is not like any woman he's ever met. When he discovers what the sexy librarian is really looking for in a man, he's even more intrigued. But giving up control is difficult for Marcus - no matter how much he desires it.

Despite their intense attraction, Marcus and Bella's budding relationship is at an impasse. Until a weekend at a unique B&B offering all manner of naughty nightly activities teaches them both just how good it can feel to lose control....

Listened in One Night

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

I haven't seen the written so I can't comment.

What did you like best about this story?

The scenes were extremely hot and heavy. A very fun guilty pleasure for a long drive.

What about Dara Rosenberg’s performance did you like?

I loved it. Her voice i has a rasp to it that made the steamy scenes so real. She was a great narrator and kept me involved in the book the entire time. I totally enjoyed her.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There is one sad part in the book but aside from that its just pure guilty pleasure! My friends laugh at me for loving books like this... but they are just too much fun. I highly recommend it for a good time.

Any additional comments?

pretty sexual in nature...but in a good way!

Good characters-a little weird story

What did you like best about this story?

It was hard to understand the biggest problem the characters had. It's like they both wanted to dominate. Not really a life or death situation. But it was a good listen.

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

I thought she connected well with the main character and it made the book easier to go along with. I enjoyed it.

I like the storylines of newbees but the narration is poor and audible quality poor as well. should rerecord.

Escape

The story is a good continuation of the series but the performance is very stilted, like she didn't study the script before she read it out loud.

Awful in every way!

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

Gave up before I was a quarter of the way through the book.

Any additional comments?

The story was terrible, the narrator was worse. Yuck!
