Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Ali Parker comes a billionaire alpha romance series that is sure to leave you fanning yourself and begging for more. His wants. His needs. His demands. Your pleasure. You're welcome.

Bethany had one more year of school left, and once again, poverty struck hard. The only option would be to encourage her mother to marry her new boyfriend Kent, a billionaire tycoon in the world of accounting. Mom is more than happy to move the wedding date up, and Bethany's soon-to-be father is willing to pay for her schooling - on one condition: she works for his firm as an intern throughout the next year.

She agrees without hesitation, but little does she know that Kent's oldest son, Damon, is the CFO. Dark features and a stare that would melt panties, he's everything one might imagine of a billionaire's spoiled alpha son, her new boss. Her billionaire boss plays lots of games and though she hates herself for it, Bethany is more than yearning for the chance to fulfill his needs.

18+ for explicit sexual content, language, and possible violence.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "A HOT BUT DISAPPOINTING STORY OF LUST v LOVE"

    Sadly I'm a little bit torn with this listen.. the premise of the story was good - a hot sexy Alpha Billionaire CEO boss and soon to be step-brother gets tamed by his new Intern/future step-sister all sounded good. But Bethany's constant insecurities and immature behaviour wore me down a bit.. she was an intelligent woman yet all that was going through her head was Damon this.. Damon that.. Damon Damon Damon. And I'm usually ok with 'insta' anything however I just thought Bethany's declaration of love for a man whose emotions were so closed off, promised sex but absolutely no commitments, was a shameless womanizer and after such a short time of brief encounters was all just too unreal. Professionally speaking punching a couple-worker in the face and breaking her nose for a bitchy comment was also pretty unrealistic.. even if the thought crosses your mind.

    However, I battled on but I found myself picking more holes in the story.. like there was no discussion of safe sex or contraception before they went skin to skin for their many sexcapades. Bethany manipulated her loving Mom to marry early because of her own need for financial help then hid feelings and lied to her whenever just wasn't a nice character trait. So I didn't really like, and couldn't connect with, Bethany nor could I buy into the story of true love when Damon was being such an ass to her. Damon was all kinds of hot.. a dirty talking sexy alpha who demands (and delivers) a lot when it comes to sex but has commitment issues after his Mom's many infidelities and lies. And there are various secondary characters who are weaved in and out of the storyline to threaten or support the fragile balance of Bethany and Damon's relationship. Parts were well detailed and yet there were gaping gaps in information too.. but the unexpected CLIFFHANGER ending topped my peeves as their story will continue for at least four more books. Told from Bethany's POV by a good narrator.

    Worth a credit? Sorry but I'm on the fence with this one.. if the series was boxed sets then maybe yes but then again I think of the heroine's immature actions and I think He'll no. I'm also not emotionally drawn into the story enough to be spending 4 or 5 more credits on it when there are far better stories out there waiting to be heard. But hey we're all different right and just because I didn't fall in love.. you just might.

    "ITS DEFINITELY HOT IN HERE"
    Any additional comments?

    My one complaint is that Beth fell in love a bit too fast. Other than that it was a really good sexy listen. It's worth the credit and of course my favorite narrator of all time can make an obituary 🔥🔥🔥🔥. Its an enjoyable read and I say get it now. Is love so powerful that when denied it rears its ugly head and leaves a broken heart in the backlash. I guess you will see if you get this one. Loved it

    "I CANT WITH THIS BOOK!!"

    Ok where do I even start!!! First I was under the impression that Joe Arden(the narrator) was giving us the male POV then started listening and saw it was all Bethany's POV so I didn't like that! Second Bethany was annoying as ever, how do you fall in love in a week. Then she was so consumed in Damon it was Damon everything I felt like she was just portrayed as dumb. Now third when the decided to sleep together nobody talked about contraception at all. I just thought it was a terrible portrayal of a smart woman in college trying to do something for herself. I was so disappointed in this read!

    I didn't even finish it!!

    "addicting"

    i originally got this book as a free ebook. (the first part/book) i quickly had to buy as many of the rest as i could that were out. then this now in audible. i love the world Ali Parker paints. i want to know Beth and Damon. each and every book sucks you in so deep you dont even realize its over until it is. yes they end in cliffhangers. but i can tell you the series as a whole ends in a great HEA and is very much worth the listen.

    Story
    "His Demands Book 1 Review"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator did a good job, but it did seem off to have a male narrator when the story was told her the female POV.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ali Parker? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would like to see how this story continues.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Arden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Have not, but would listen to ore.


    Was His Demands worth the listening time?

    Though overall a good romance, there were times I was distracted from the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Though I was not always captivated with direction. I am intrigued enough to want to read/listen to the next book.

    "Damon is a hot alpha"

    I haven't read a a good strong alpha male story in a long time. just what I needed to kick start my reading again.

    I do wish the narrator would have been a female, but overall, he did a good job.

    looking forward to the next book.

    "Easy listen"
    What did you like best about His Demands? What did you like least?

    I liked the premise of the story, any time there is a forbidden aspect I'm instantly drawn to it. I never really understood Bethany and she came off selfish and immature. Her character needed too be explored more in depth, we were constantly told she was smart but her actions did not show that. I wasn't able to get a grasp on who she was. Damon on the other hand was hot and cold but he was upfront with what he wanted. I loved the person he was underneath the facade.


    Would you recommend His Demands to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend to someone who is looking for a light easy listen and to anyone that likes an alpha.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Arden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I actually wanted to listen to this because of Joe Arden. His narration was great as usual and even though this is not a male POV book he was able to make it work.

    "HOT HOT HOT"

    This book is scorching hot, Damon truly is an Alpha Male - he's deliciously arrogant & scandalous & sexy and did I say Hot already! Bethany is a good girl with a very naughty side that Damon wasn't expecting, her back story is quite sad she's had a really tough time but with such a loving Mother she's a really strong woman who isn't afraid to stand up for herself. When Bethany & Damon are finally together the sparks really do start to fly - it's steamy, romantic, sassy and saucy and I loved it. The audio just adds to the appeal of this book as its quite hypnotic! If you like good bit of raunchy with a powerful back story and a good mix of characters you'll love this book Ali knocked it out of the park with this one. Well worth the read or in this case the deliciously hypnotizing listen!
