Publisher's Summary

Grace Jenkins has had little experience with men - feeling too awkward and insecure to free the passionate woman inside her. But that hasn't stopped her from dreaming about Noah Harper. Gorgeous, strong, and darkly sexy, his rough edge beneath the polish promises no mercy in the bedroom. When Grace learns Noah's engagement has ended in scandal, she shyly offers him her support and her friendship. But Noah's looking for something extra....

Noah wants Grace - badly. He wants to possess those curves that go on forever, to savor her sweet innocence, to take her to the limits of white-hot desire...again and again. What he doesn't want is anything more complicated than that, and he knows Grace is a woman who deserves better. Grace, however, knows exactly what she wants - the kind of ecstasy only Noah can give her. Brazenly she accepts, and Noah promises to make all her secret fantasies come true....

Started off bad but ended ok.

I almost didn't finish but I kept with it. Grace got on my nerves. I got tired of hearing her talk down about her plus size body. No confidence, low self esteem and wimpy. She let every one push her around. I'm on the fence about Noah. I liked how when he did notice her the weight, her hair or her frumpy clothes didn't matter. But he was also kind of a bully.

The story was just ok. I'll forget about it by tomorrow. Mr. Frangione was excellent as usual. He's one of my favorite narrators. If the story is bad at least hearing his voice is enjoyable.

good!

You can tell that this was written over 15 years ago (some word and clothing choices), but it's still one of my favorites! It's always nice having a shy girl gain confidence, and there were parts that I literally laughed out loud. I have read and reread this book several times, and I will continue to do so.

What a Spineless Wimp

It was incredibly painful listening as Grace, a pathetically spineless wimp, allowed both Noah and his grandmother Agatha to bully her relentlessly.

Sadly, Grace had ZERO self-respect or personal boundaries, believing she was unattractive and unlovable. Since Grace willingly worked for a woman who regularly degraded and humiliated her, it was not surprising that she permitted Noah to abuse her too.

Noah was the typical self-absorbed alpha jerk, who categorized women as either worthless whores or refined ladies. Therefore any woman who enjoyed sex was a slut, making it acceptable for him to punish them with domination and cruelty.

Rather than romantic or erotic, the sex scenes were cold and calculating, with Grace demeaning herself without a thought to her physical safety or emotional health. Noah was incapable of affection or empathy, believing the world revolved around his cock.

It's amazing that a female author would promote such low opinion of her own gender. Although well written, there was nothing romantic, erotic or entertaining in this misogynistic novel.

Too much temptation by Lori Foster

I loved this audiobook. I have read all of Lori Foster's books. I am glad that I could listen to it. I loved listening to Jim Frangione. His voice is very smooth. I now have to get the one on Ben's book. J....
