Publisher's Summary

The attraction was undeniable.

I couldn't escape him.

I didn't want to.

I was his.

He was mine.

But he wasn't my husband.

My once treasured marriage was now flawed and imperfect.

By the time the guilt set in, it was too late.

Reality was trying to keep me away from my obsession.

My husband was that reality.

My obsession was West.

But West was forbidden. Taken. Married.

We were swingers.

It was the perfect arrangement.

Until I fell in love....

With West.

Swinger + Love +Drama = HOT BOOK!!!

While the subject matter of this book may not be for everyone, I have to say I really enjoyed this book! The writing style and timing of some of the details made my opinion of all four characters changes more than once. In the beginning I liked them all and I like the differences between the couples. Then I wasn't sure how I felt about West and his internal dialogue, then I started to question Piper and how naive she acted at times then with a information drop all of a sudden I wasn't sure if I liked or disliked any of them. In the end I liked how none of these characters were perfect nor did they make the right decisions every time. This shows reality to me because not everyone is exactly what they seem at first glance. Besides the characters, I loved the story line and did I say...his book was HOT HOT HOT!!!

If you have no hang ups with fidelity in the books you read (remember this book is about Swinging) then I say check this book out, you won't regret it!!!

The narration was PERFECT!! I love both Aaron Shedlock & Tracy Marks but together they knocked this one out of the park!! Seriously, they portrayed these characters perfectly in my opinion and the dual narration flowed great. Some times the narrators have such different inflections in their tones for a characters that it feel choppy but in this case together these two really did keep each character on the same level if that makes sense. I loved it!!!

Wow...... Just wow...... Did i say wow?

This book has my head in a jumble! Let me start by saying I knew going into this book that it may push my comfort level being I have a hard time with cheating style books. Let me say that if you are like me, you should not be worried. This book was so well written that it was not a problem at all. Basic premise is two married couples who decide to start swinging for one reason or another. Leaving it just at that, you can imagine all the possible issues or fallout that may ensue. I was totally and fully pulled in. It was a wild roller coaster ride with so many twist and turns. I thought it was fabulous~

Narration by Aaron and Tracy was top notch as always. They gave perfect performances for these one of a kind characters. I loved how they brought them to life.

I can't say enough how much I loved the characters. I hated some of the characters but loved how much I hated them - Totally your fault~ . Gia - This was crazy, steamy, shocking, frustrating, and soo soo yummy! Thank you!

I love Aaron and Tracy but. ....

I’m sorry to say this book was very taboo marriage. I truly can’t believe anything good including a true love situation when it’s all about sex. There’s no getting to know each other. All sex. Not for me I returned

A great audio duo for this HOTTTTT book!!

Any additional comments?

I went into this book only knowing that it was about swinging, but I didn't expect it to be such an angsty read. There is cheating which is a hard limit for me, and at times I felt so torn about whether I wanted Piper and Cannon to work through their marriage issues, or whether I wanted them to just break up. There are so many layers to this story and the characters are so flawed in their own ways. The sexy times are scorchingly HOTTTTTTT and the story was well paced and kept me intrigued from start to finish.

Tracy Marks was perfect as Piper - she portrayed Piper's insecurities, guilt and anger so well. Aaron Shedlock is audio perfection as West with his gruff voice. Seriously, his voice gave me tingles throughout and I couldn't wait for his chapters!!

Well Performed!

I'm not sure what I all thought of this book. Having been on the cheated end of a relationship, I found this book difficult to listen to. I thought both Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock did great performances bringing so many emotions to the listen. I just had difficulty with the premise of the story due to on my own circumstance and emotions. I enjoyed various parts of this book and thought it was well written and loved the ending, but my own feelings clouded my opinion. I do not write a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinions of it.

Oh so many secrets!

This book was interesting.... and I dont mean that in a bad way. There were so many secrets that came out that floored me! Just when I thought I had the book all figured out, something new came out and I was forced to sit there with my mouth hanging open in shock. I dont typically go for cheating stories but this went far beyond the typical cheating book.

The narration of great! I love listening to dual narrations! I feel they help add so much more to the story.

What an Unconventional Hot & Steamy Romance!

Wow, this unconventional love story hooked me right from the start! It is about two couples looking for something and finding the unexpected. It is about lies and betrayal, hot steamy sex, and finding true love. I didn't always agree with the choices these couples made but they did feel genuine and honest. I grew to really liked Piper and West and could feel their connection right from the start. Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock did a wonderful job pulling me in and keeping me totally engaged. They made me really feel Piper and West's agony and frustration with their situations and then their eventual resolutions. This story has the hottest sex scenes and a very interesting plot. I was engaged from start to finish and didn't want it to end. I thought the sweet epilogue was a perfect ending.

Twisted

This book was chosen as a group listen, and it was a perfect choice. I knew going into this book that it was one that I would likely not have chosen, and that it would likely be provocative. Well, it definitely provoked strong emotions that lead to great discussions. The characters were twisted, flawed, and well developed, as was the story with all the twists and turns. And, whether you liked them or not, you wanted to find out just what was going to happen next. Each of the characters had their own personal struggle, and I only wish we could have seen more of Tilly’s.
The narration on this one just really brought the story and characters to life. The confusion, hurt, frustration, shock, anger, angst; all of it was well done and portrayed in the narration by Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks. Aaron always brings so much to his performances, and yet still out did himself in this one. And, I’d say this was my favorite Tracy Marks narration.
