Publisher's Summary

"A compelling love story with real emotion...and the right amount of fantasy." (Joey W. Hill, award-winning author and recipient of the RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award)

Everyone knows Jonathan Brond as the playboy congressman. They don't know
he's hiding a second life - one he only shares with select women.  

Christiana is tired of trying to stay afloat, at school, at home, and with her socialite best friend. She's desperate for something new, something different. 

They shouldn't be together. 

They shouldn't have ever met. 

He'd be crazy to give in to his desire for her. She'd be crazy to accept his indecent offer - a proposition her best friend would kill for.  

They are one step away from a scandal that could bring both their worlds down, but some temptations are too great to refuse.

Good story! Narrator volume up and down.

Agree with previous comments about volume changes when trying to seem more intense or dramatic; especially difficult on Bluetooth in the car.

Elite

Boy can Elizabeth SaFleur write a BDSM scene! That takes great skill and many books lack that. I enjoyed the story but felt like something was missing between the characters. Other that I did like the story and recommend.
I liked the narration. I struggled at first but got into it. I did not care for her male characters voices.

I really wanted to like it

I love all things politics and alpha men.. What I don't like is unrealistic actions by 19 year old women. The book/story had potential, just a bit perturbed by the adolescence of the leading female.

Awesome story line

Grabbed my attention from beginning to end. Can’t wait to listen to more. I recommend this audiobook. Narrator was great as well.

Sultry, Sexy, Awakening

Anastasia Watley provides a grand voice to the characters in Elizabeth SaFleur’s ‘Elite: Doms of Washington’ novel.

This was my first read/listen to both author and narrator, and it was, indeed, a pleasure.

So naughty, to be listening to this story with earbuds in, and crowds of people around me, on my cruise ship and the beaches we visited.

Will definitely be adding both author and narrator to my MUST READ list!

Beautifully read

The story was hot and steamy with a plot.
The narration was excellent. I'm not a fan of audibles due to the voices of the narrator's do not fit the picture in my head. Anastasia Watley is the exception.

Jonathan and Christiana are hot!

This book is the story of Jonathan, an older man, and Christiana. They meet by chance and then make an arrangement to be together during the summer only. He’s a Dom, she’s a sub. She learns so much about herself and enjoys being with him. There’s a lot going on around them and others try to tear them apart, but don’t succeed. They grow stronger together and in the end get their HEA.

This was my introduction to Elizabeth SaFleur as writer. I knew I’d love it! I can’t get enough! I listened to this book on Audible, but also have it in Kindle. Now I’m off to read, or listen, to the next book in the series!

Put me to sleep.

Got bored with 4 hours left.

Main characters were annoying. Best friend annoying. Parents annoying. I love a good "tie me up and spank me" story but this one didn't hold my attention. Story dragged and is way to long.

The reviews must belong to another story

** SPOILER ALERT **, of course that assumes there is something to 'spoil'.

A 19 y.o. innocent seduced by a dominant congressman. "Your submission is a sign of your strength" "I will never do anything to hurt you"...except of course if you let your cell phone battery die, then I'll discipline you in anger. Oh and if you are trying to call me I don't have to feel any obligation to call you back. "This is all for your pleasure", unless of course you don't let me tie you up in my dungeon because then our relationship would be over. "You have to trust me without question, no matter what friends, family and the newspapers tell you", if you don't I will beat you. "You need to keep your job to pay for university?" Too bad, my needs outweigh yours and if I want to spank you and have sex where you work then that's what I'll do. "What's that? You were just betrayed by your best friend and are upset after a cathartic confession about a childhood trauma?" Let me console you! I know! Let's have anal sex, I know it will be your first time but after everything else that has happened tonight what's one more horrible experience?

It's so tiresome when authors claim that the submissive is a strong person and then proceed to write a story where the woman is anything but. Christiana is a doormat, never standing up to her dom. "Ooooh I shouldn't let him demean me like this, oh wait! What is that? An orgasm? That's ok then, do whatever you want to me."......pathetic.

Our Jonathan is a selfish and immature man, clearly not worth of the trust the young submissive grants him.

I don't know what story the other reviewers listened to, I would have preferred that one.

I quite enjoyed this audiobook

I think the narrator did a great job with this story. She did the male pov/voice good aswell.

I love a forbidden love story and I liked the plot as well.

Breathe of fresh air

I loved how Elizabeth has written these characters, especially the leading lady. She is so strong but still submissive. Great storyline and fantastic narration from Anastasia.

Excellent example of a good erotic romance

Would you listen to Lovely again? Why?

Yes. It's an engaging story with interesting and plausible characters, events and dialogue

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that it was primarily a romance story in which an older man helps a younger woman realise who and what she truly is

Which character – as performed by Anastasia Watley – was your favourite?

Christiana

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

If I could have arranged my day appropriately, quite possibly!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed reading this as an e-book and enjoyed it just as much as an audiobook. The quality of the storytelling is excellent, the way the characters feel seems very plausible, and the love-making scenes are exciting but not seedy. In a fairer world, this would have been published before Fifty Shades of Grey, and been just as successful.
