Publisher's Summary

(Minor spoiler and warning at the bottom of the blurb.)

Alex is dead.

Dead and apparently with a one-way ticket to a place that only the worst of the worst go.

All for a simple choice he made about a product his company owned.

Damned for all time.

Luckily for him, he’s about to be given a chance.

Another choice to make.

He can instead return to the land of the living, though his soul would belong to another. Except the world he’s being sent to isn’t the same one he came from. It’s not even a similar period in time, but from something long past in history.

The dark ages.

And part of the deal to live again, is to make pacts with others. Pacts that would bind the soul of those who take a deal to the same entity who owns Alex’s soul.

How much would you give of yourself to live on is an easy question.

The better question, is how much would you take from others?

If Alex wants to keep living, to keep his soul from being sent to the darkest corner of hell, he’ll have to ask himself that question.

Daily.

Warning: This novel explores dark subjects, and what people will give up of themselves, and each other, to get what they want. The main character is written as a real person in a tough situation, and will not make choices that line up with societal and cultural norms.

It contains adult themes and moral ambiguities. 

As with my previous work, explicit scenes are found within. It has violence and a harem relationship.

Harem done right

It's like Super Sales on Super Heroes but with less supernatural abilities and more pervy goodness. Stephanie Savannah did a phenomenal job with the narration! She absolutely nailed the characters and her voice is incredibly sexy. Overall another great release from Randi/William.

Awesome narrator. Good self-contained story

Don't usually read these kinds of books, but hot damn was this a good one to start!
As mentioned, the narrator was perfect for the job, good variety between the (various) female charters to help differentiate them.
The story being very self-contained really helped get the action going (take that as you will), and as a fan of tedious books like LitRPGs I loved the way the contracts and technicalities and just overall scheme-y nature of it all worked. The main character basically took his "ruthless CEO style" marketing strategy to a more primal project, and sometimes I wish there would be a bit more of that modern-strategy-to-fantasy-realm lingo, but then that would take away from all that graphic goodness.

Now onto that! The warning in the description did not lie, this gets graphic and descriptive, luckily it does not prattle on like some of the bad examples of erotica, but give you the juice bits, and pull back before it overextends itself into smut. This was a quick read for me, as it held my attention throughout. Going to get more from the author.

Incredibly Erotic

The story was actually very good considering sex and forplay was a huge theme throughout the book. Loved all the characters and of course the naughty parts. Hope there might be a sequel for this some day.

Unique

I've never read anything quite like this. It was interesting to see how the MC changed over the story, which is very well written.

The Narrator did wonderfully. Every character felt different and had personality in their voices.

I liked it

I’d like to start by saying that I got this one after about thirty second of the provided clip and did actually look to see what it was about that said I really enjoyed the story even if I would like a little bit of the erotic stuff to be world building instead I guess that’s my only issue with it just not enough world building

Great plot ideal turns into plot hole

This story suffers from a few critical flaws that turns it into a bland power fantasy with a harem. Early half of the story used in examples below.

Plot: The MC has the power to make deals on a God's name in order to stay alive. The problem with this is that others who make loyalty oaths have to follow them as well or die but no one ever makes complex binding oaths to stop betrayal and scheming. This leads to issues of strife that just make no sense later in the story.

Setting: This takes place in another world's medieval period which is standard and fine though the author misses a huge part of that time faith. Since loyalty contracts seem to work because they are sworn on God's there is little reason everyone would accept swearing on a dark god. No one ever says no or gets into arms over what would anger quite a few. Also deals seem to suffer from the convince factor as they are less to the spirit or letter and more how the MC wanted. Also i my have missed something but how he turned things around because CEO and not gambling seems massively dumbed down to the point of hurting.

Characters: The MC a CEO of a company who is in trouble because he approved something dangerous after making people sign wavers but does the same thing again in the new world. The MC is a pychopath because he never seems to have remorse or even a hard time basically trying to break and condition these women. He never seems to regret or feel bad or try a broader way just break women sexually and of course only deal with women.

Me Too Antidote

Sexist, misogynistic, a teenage boys wet dream. I can;t say I'm sorry I listened to it but it probably doesn't have any redeeming social value. It is entertaining.

2 issues with this. the rest was nice :)

so i really liked the book, it was nicely written, story was good, had reasonable pace, like the setup etc.
my only two issues is:
1. my biggest issue is the sex scenes. they feel misplaced and the way they are done either makes me annoyed, at best, uncomfortable, most times, and angry, at worst.
i admit i've heard to book twice now and both times i've had to skip some of the sex scenes and those i heard i skipped entirely second time around.
i don't feel like they add anything to the scenario and the way the MC constantly tries to make it "morally ok" with so many extremely weak excuses is just annoying. one thing is the fantasy of these things another is to be so stupid to delude oneself to the idea that "it is totally of their free will, can just say no and choose death"...
at least the MC is pretty blunt about being a bad person etc. so he is aware, it just gets tiresome with all the constant "this is consensual, totally consensual... now back to the slave cages" :/

i also don't see why it has to revolve entirely around him getting laid. the story setup, world building etc. could be used a lot. the deal-making etc. would be very useful and interesting. yet the only purpose he apparently got is getting laid (and let's just be honest if you get sex 2-3 times every day it doesn't take too many months before your "need" is fulfilled enough to start focusing on something else)

2. there is a lot of situations where the language turns extremely ugly/vulgar for no other reason than trying to see how vulgar it can be. no one talks like that and it is very clear the author have never talked to anyone who actually got a vulgar/ugly way of speaking, this feels to forced and there are to many extra words just to increase the idea that it is a vulgar/badmouthed person.

as a last note the idea of being capable to swear your soul etc. away so easily with so few rules seems a bit lacking in its explanation.
especially since coertion with death as the other option is apparently ok, and magic binding oath to lords etc.
it is hard to imagine such a setup without everyone being given the "free choice" of getting their head chopped off or swear to whatever god is giving your lord his "power/wishes".
it seems like a bit of a rule needing setup ^^

besides that as said i really liked it and i am looking forward to seeing what is next, if there is a next; else the ending was a bit meeh ^^

Enjoyable but horny

An interesting premise and well written in my opinion. But definitely for an adult audience!

Fantastic book, fascinating and innovative.

A genuinely original story, brilliantly read. I couldn’t turn it off. I’m dying to hear the next in the series.

Enjoyable fantasy.

As with all of this author's books, once you get started it is impossible to stop listening! The characters(conflicted male lead/ physically tough, sexy women yet strangely submissive) are similar to his other tales bit are always uniquely engaging. The storyline is an interesting one as the lead is in debt to a goddess whom he must collect a quota of oaths for lives and souls per month. Much violence and action ensues, along with a fair amount of sexual activity. Narration is a good solid job but lacks an exciting edge when it's called for. All in all, very enjoyable. 👍
