This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

The girl next door. Pretty. Sweet. Kind. Submissive. Until I met her, I was alone with the dark desires that I didn't understand, that I couldn't reconcile. She became my best friend, and then she became so much more. Desire. Disgust. Shame. Dominance. I wouldn’t have survived until college without her. When we were together, I was at peace for the first time in my life. But it was too good to last. Our appetite for pain and pleasure destroyed us. And all the drinks in the world weren’t enough to get used to missing her. On the verge of earning my degree, Ana walks back into my life, those gray-blue eyes still able to see right through me. It’s the chance I’ve been waiting for. One last chance to overcome my shame. If only it were that easy.

Hot and Sexy book

Really enjoyed this book and the transition from teen to adulthood of the characters. Fiona Cole knows how to right a book with a wonderful story while having all the sexy scenes that you enjoy. And the narration is amazing!!!

High school to adult

I LOVED this book by Fiona Cole. It's my first book by her and I'll definitely be looking out for more! Holly Warren and Edward Thomas do an amazing job and giving all the characters individual identities!
Like most of us - high school has impacted our life in one way or another, despite the other things taking place at the same time in our life. Kevin and Ana are best friends. I loved how I grew with them, understood their feelings and felt their grief and happiness.
Although I'm sometimes frustrated with Ana, it's a natural frustration and can actually see her decision making process, even if it isn't my own.
I'd like to say this is a love story I couldn't put down, but actually, it's erotic and heart breaking and sexy, and ....just wow - the sex scenes made me sometimes feel like I was a voyeur. Both narrators allowed me to feel all these things without feeling like they were just reading a script.

⭐️Splendedly ⭐️Sinful⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved this book!!! So well written about the misplaced guilt and shame we sometimes put on ourselves!!
For anyone who has ever been in love, confused, or ‘should’ upon.. this is a not to be missed story!!
The narration was spot on award worthy!!
I will absolutely be looking for both this author and narrators again!! ( they were all new to me)
For me, this is definitely worth any credit or coin and I will certainly listen again and again!

Why so much shame guys?

I mean, it is the title. Not sure what I expected, but honestly nothing that these kids are into is *that* shameful. In fact, it's pretty low on the kink hierarchy. It's practically vanilla. The book assumes that these two are the only two people in their little town who like rough sex. The book also portrays the concept that someone might like something sexually that they do not want irl as nearly impossible to understand. It may be a tough thing to grasp as a teenager. But this book follows these kids for like a decade. In the grand scheme of things, it's hard to buy that two modern twenty-somethings feel THIS conflicted about some light bdsm. Get over it kids. That being said, it kept my attention and the love scenes were pretty hot.

A Little Repetitive

The love story at the center of the book is absolutely lovely. Falling for a friend and being comfortable to explore your needs and desires together is wonderful and makes for great storytelling. While I believe being into BDSM woulld be controversial when you are a teen, it was a little hard to believe that it could continue to be an obstacle for 10 years. I appreciate the lack of manufactured drama it just got a little repetitive at times.
That being said this book is super hot! Kevin's wickedly delicious mouth could get me to do all kinds of things too.
Very good narration. I enjoyed Edward Thomas's reading of Voyeur but I thought he was even better here.

4 Shameful Stars

Such a fantastic coming of age story for a couple kids who are going through an alternative sexual discovery.

I loved the idea of story and the characters, the highs and lows were so emotional, on both fronts. I could feel the turmoil these kids were going through and had such empathy for them. Getting the happy ever after was so deserving.

My only objection was that I felt that the exact same issue was thrown at them over and over that it lost some of its efficacy for the reader.

But I know it’s a book I will still come back to over and over. It’s that good.
