How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

One week of mind-blowing sex on a beautiful Caribbean island. Of all the business proposals financial tycoon Dominic Saxon has heard, Taylor Steele's is definitely the most tempting. All Taylor wants in return is for Dominic to father her baby. No strings, no commitments...just a mutually satisfying arrangement. Make that very satisfying. For a man with no intention of marrying again, it sounds ideal.

Taylor wants a baby, not a relationship. And sexy, intelligent Dominic seems like a man with perfect genes. Turns out, Dominic has perfect everything. Their "procreation vacation" is a whirlwind of sensual ecstasy. But when it's over, will either of them be able to say goodbye?

Brenda Jackson is a USA Today and New York Times best-selling author.

IT WAS MORE MEDIOCRE THAN MAGICAL

I don't know what let the book down more the story or the narrator. Dominic and Taylor's attempts to get her pregnant went on and on and on - don't get me wrong I'm no prude and I like hot and heavy in my listens - but whilst there was plenty of sex there was no real passion. They became more as a mechanical act rather than an erotic one and they seemed to be written to fill the pages in rather than as a spicey accompanyment to a good plot.

I usually like B.Jackson's books but this seemed to lack mentioning or describing other things like the Island, the hotel or even the yaught that enables us listeners to visualise the scenes - they landed, went straight to the hotel, had lots of sex (per hour), rented a boat, more sex, back to room, more sex, flew home, more sex, fell out, no sex, made up, plenty of sex for the rest of their lives and all narrated without feeling.

Worth a credit? It had it's few good paragraphs but, for me, it was not credit worthy - so that would be a NO.

Closer to erotica than romance

This book is closer to erotica than romance, but if you are okay with that, then you'll love this book. It is well-written and well-narrated, with likable characters and a fast moving plot -- the plot being, of course, sex sex sex.

Very Explicit!

This was actually a very cute story that could have been so much better if the author hadn't spent so much time droning on and on over every romantic encounter between the two lead characters. It would have been nice to see their feelings progress throughout her pregnancy, and to even find out more about the baby's birth. But to have so much of their sex life described in agonizing, graphic detail became too much. I love a hot, sexy romance, but this just got to the point where it was like "Enough! Can we please just find out what happens next in the story?"

Nice Read.

Not as good as the Bad News Steels series. I like the storyline. I also liked how well Dominic treated her and how concerned he was for her welfare.

My Intro to Brenda Jackson

Would you listen to Irresistible Forces again? Why?

I listen to this audiobook all the time, but it's not because of the narration by Montana Chase, which is mediocre at best. Ugh...that fake French accent. I listen to it because I Love the story! Irresistible Forces was my introduction to the Wonderful World of Brenda Jackson.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Dominic Saxon, the hero. He was/is my first book boo. Love everything about his character.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Montana Chase?

Nah, I'll pass on Montana's narration, especially if she has to do a foreign accent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the moment when Taylor and Dominic were getting ready to leave the island, and neither of them was in a big hurry. Their "baby making" tryst had developed into something more than just that, and It was very apparent at that moment that their relationship had changed.

Any additional comments?

Definitely my No. 1 story written by Brenda Jackson.

Awesome Read!!!

What made the experience of listening to Irresistible Forces the most enjoyable?

The story as well as the narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Irresistible Forces?

Because I'm still reading it, I'll have to say when they went sailing.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the made love on the boat...OMG!!!!

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

This book is too erotic to NOT have an extreme reaction. Sexy, Powerful and Potent!

Any additional comments?

So, glad I bought this book. Even though Brenda Jackson is my favorite author I almost passed it up.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. The narrator didn't do this book justice.

Skeletons in closets

When skeletons are not dealt, it equals unresolved conflicts. Unresolved conflicts lead to Resentments & resentments can grow into an all time war in families. This family is no different.

Sensual

Heavy erotic scenes. Interesting story line. The ending seemed rush and could have been further developed.

Loved the Story

I loved the Story, totally hate the sound of voice of the narrator! Certainly there are several African American Narrators that are/ were available that could have narrated so many of Brenda's books
