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?"

Not her best

I'm usually a fan of Ms. Jenkins books but this one was a disappointment. I couldn't even finish it. Too much time spent on the sex scenes and not enough on developing the relationship between the two main characters. I got bored and stopped listening. I wish I could return it and get my credit back.

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.

True to the book version.

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

Hearing the interaction of Taylor and Dominic when they begin the conversation of meeting the need that both had of having a child without the confines of a real relationship. I also like how it brought together two families in the series presented by Author Brenda Jackson of the Steeles and the Saxtons who were both rich in heritage and resources.

What did you like best about this story?

It has not increased nor decreased my interest in the subject matter at all. I am well past childbearing years and have children so that part did not capture my interest.

Which scene was your favorite?

Yes she does. I happen to be a huge fan of author Brenda Jackson and have almost all of her books. I believe she presented to those who are looking for this form of procreation an alternative that possibly only the rich and truly rich can engage in. It did not put me off as some of the reviews had me believing since I read the book and enjoyed the content, characters and story line.

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

I would love for the performance not to have been so monotone and provide the right inflections of voice depending on the scenes of their interaction versus when they engaged in the act of procreating.

Any additional comments?

I read some of the reviews of the audio of this book and those reviews caused me not to purchase the audio copy for quite some time until one day I listened to a sample for myself and found that although the narrator was female, it was something I could listen to. As a rule I prefer male narrators who give a portrayal of what is happening between the characters rather than simply reading the content. I have already read the books and want a different rendition of what the characters say, how they say it and other intangibles that simply reading the book does not provide. My overall favorite narrator hands down is Pete Ohms. I could listen to him narrate books both day and night.

You will love it.

Live the Steele family. Taylor and Dominique's story is truly a live story that should become a movie.

a true romance

Another great romance story by Brenda Jackson. I loved it both characters had good background stories that were realistic.
