This Story Is Red Hot

Publisher's Summary

Sassy, classy, and in no need of a man. That's me.

At least, until now.

My mouth has been known to get me into trouble, and now is a perfect example. I've been asked to tutor the star of the football team, Zach Knight. To top it off, no one can know, and I have to pretend to be his girlfriend as a cover story.

And he’s insufferable, thinking with this other head. But the more I sass him, the more he wants me. The more I say no, a word the Big Man on Campus rarely hears, the more he chases me. But his alpha attitude is doing crazy things to me.

Every snarl I make sounds more like a purr. Every bratty pout looks more like a naughty invitation.

And as the line between real and pretend blurs, I suddenly find myself wanting Zach to take everything from me.

My body, and maybe even my heart.

Silk and Shadows is an accidental romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliff-hanger!

Hot for Tutor

Norma and Zach have me tied up in knots as they go for the Goal. The very last thing Norma wants to be doing is tutoring a self entitled jock that feels like the world is his oyster cause God blessed him with some skill on the gridiron. She has other things on her plate like her own studies, her journalist dreams, and the hopes of finally finding a guy that can handle her larger than life personality. Nevertheless not only does she have help him with his homework she also has play the role of his girlfriend so no one is the wiser to his need for a little academic aid. Zach isn’t stupid by any means, he just isn’t digging this class and it shows apparently in his work. Now Coach is riding him to get himself a tutor and bring up his grade so he doesn’t let the team down. There is something about the bratty fiery Norma that sets him a flame and he is intrigued as he has never been before. She is unique in every way and he is determined to bottle some of the fire for himself. Between tutoring and teasing they fall headlong, but will they be able to get their TD-HEA!

Narration- Melissa and Tor once again do a sensational job. Can you say hot hot hot? They were absolutely electric with this series.

Just what I needed!

Lauren Landish always gives me what I need! This is the perfect listen. Not to angsty, has a strong female character and just the right amount of steam! Zach is a star football player in need of some help with his GPA. When Norma is asked to help tutor him, and be his pretend girlfriend for appearances, she does so, hesitantly. But who knew this man was not just a dumb jock looking for his next conquest! Norma was happy to find a man who is quick on his feet as well as his banter. A man who can challenge her is just what she wanted. Could he be the one? Landish creates her characters with that sense of realism that we can all relate to. Being similar to Norma, I could feel all of her insecurity, and grow with her as their relationship went on. Zach is wonderfully attentive, considerate and smart, much like the athletes I know are, but get the stereotyped persona attached to him. He proves to be worthy! And Jake...what a character!(That is all I will say about him!) This is a fun, easy story that made me smile, feel good and fall for the hero.

The narration team of Melissa Moran and Tor Thom continue to blaze through this series! I love the combination of their voices. Moran is perfect for Norma Jean. She adds spunk to her insecurity, and with her narration, you can feel the change in Norma as the year goes on. Thom brings out all the shine in Zach. As the star athlete, the confidence exudes out of him with Tor's performance, but you can hear the softness and love in his voice too. It's a great story!

Great Listen!

The story was unique and original. Lauren Landish writes amazing, sarcastic leading ladies that I am always able to relate to. I enjoyed every minute of this audio and cannot wait to go back and listen to the other books in this series!

The narration was amazing! Everything was done perfectly!

What a silk of a great story

This is book 3 of the series . It’s as heart gripping as the other 2 in the series . Lauren Landish is very talented story teller . She knows how to make you want see the sweet story with a heart gripping love story, thrown in with some panty wetting scenes.
This story is about Norma Jean and Zachs story . You meet Norma in book 1 and 2 . She’s Liam’s little sister but also a nerd . She has goals in her life . She wants to be a journalist and the best . And to top it off she’s a virgin.
She’s assigned to help out with school projects. If she doesn’t and Zach fells the grade he’s in trouble.
Zach is a football star. He’s relying on football and the school is relying on him . If he fails the class he’s out of the team .
Things get hot and heavy between Norma and Zach . It gets real steamy and you need to grab it and see if the virgin looses her virgin status . It’s great that other characters show up from the other stories to tie them into this story

Tor Thom and Melissa were and are great together. They make you think your right in the story beside them and you see scenes like they are life . The voices are smooth , sexy , clear and strong .

Quick Easy Listen

The narrators did a great job. This was a quick low angst story. The beginning was a bit rushed for me but the story evened out and I enjoyed both H/h. You do not need to read/listen to any of the previous books to enjoy this one.

Funny & Sexy

Silk & Shadows was a super funny & sexy story. Norma is going to college to become a journalist. Zack is a star player for the football team who ends up needing a tutor. Norma becomes that tutor but under the disguise of his girlfriend. Zack is totally not Norma's type. He is very cocky & full of himself but why does Norma's body start to feeling things she doesn't want it to towards Zack. Norma wants to find a good guy not someone like Zack. Zack is used to having all the girls throw themselves at him so when Norma doesn't, the chase is on. This book was so good! Very funny & sexy at the same time. Tor Thom & Melissa Moran fit the characters well. Great narration!

Sweet and Sexy Story!

This is the third book in The Virgin Diaries Series. Zach and Norma are total opposites, but they share an instant attraction. Zach is a handsome football player, and Norma is his temporary tutor, and his fake girlfriend. Their chemistry is strong and sexy. I love the ending. The narration was well done as always with Tor Thom and Melissa Moran. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Football player meets Journalism challenger

This story was refreshing. No boy meets girl, girl resists because of imaginary reasons, such as he is a player etc, or he gets wrong impression of her, snob, goodie two shoes. They connect, are on the same page, sparks fly. Norma is a sensible person as seen on two occasions in this story, Zach likewise, except when he is forced to defend Norma. Not saying it is lacking the fun intimate scenes, they are there, in fact Norma is kind of daring and can be cheeky and sassy when given the chance. Zach eats it up and when given the opportunity takes advantage to see the new woman she is becoming.
Can’t forget to mention the narrators Tor Thom and his get you in the moment sexy voice, or Melissa Moran who made Norma come to life. Thank you for gifting me this audible book.

Sexy, steamy, sweet! LOVED IT!!!!!

I loved this hot jock and tutor/fake relationship story. It was a fun and quick listen and Ms Landish made falling for Zach easy. He’s sexy, smart, and a total sweetheart. Norma is was a great sassy female lead and the banter between she and Zach was just perfect! Lauren Landish is quickly becoming a go to author for me with her amazing stories full or heat and heart. She keeps the angst to a minimum giving the story just enough to add an element of drama, but still keeping it feeling real and relatable. Add to that her heroines that have sass and vulnerability in just the right measure and heroes that are completely drool and swoon worthy, and you have yourself a one-click author!

Narrators Melissa Moran and Tor Thom continue to narrate this series and thank goodness! I love their pairing and performances in series so much. Melissa Moran perfectly captures Norma’s vulnerability and sassiness. Tor Thom was just perfect at the hot jock: confident, strong, sexy, but still gentle and sweet. Totally credit worthy!

Sass and Snarl!

College quarterback alpha male and the sassy, smart virgin tutor ~ let the games begin!
Gah! Once again I thought this book was spectacular read, then I listen to the audio and my love for the book goes up 100%!!
Melissa Moran and Tor Thom's vocal stylings brought out all sides of Norma and Zach! A nonstop beautifully beastly tale laced with heartache, love, and layers of sensual pleasure. The third in the Virgin Diaries Series, Lauren Landish has kept the theme going with this standalone whose characters and storyline are captivating!
Another listening pleasure worth the time and credit!
