Publisher's Summary

Micah Hudson has painful secrets he's run hard from. He has new friends, a new life, but he's about to be confronted with the one person who reminds him of all he's tried to forget - Angelina, the sister of his oldest friend David. She knows everything about his past, including how he and David fell in love with the same woman, and how they decided the best way to prevent her from tearing them apart was to share her between them. But then a terrible accident left Micah alone....

Micah lost the two people who meant the most in the world to him. Angelina lost her only family. And she kept her deepest secret close to her heart. Her love for Micah. No longer willing to wait, she decides it's time to go after him and bring him to his knees. She knows his secrets, his desires, his kinks and fetishes, and she'll use whatever it takes to reel him in. Behind the easygoing, loves-women exterior lies a man with dark needs and passions. She can give him what he wants. But will he decide she's what he needs?

Just OK

Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Caroline Wintour?

I like some of the other series books that Maya Banks has done, this series is just too out there with the sex scenes. I guess if you like that kind of thing you'd enjoy this book, but I just don't see the romance in sharing your girl with a bunch of guys, and compound the weirdness by drawing the scene out for almost 3 chapters. I skipped the sex scenes and found the story pretty good, if I could have skipped the weird thing with the other guys I would have really liked it.

Throw a bucket of ice water on me!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh yes!!! If you can handle the heat, then YES!!!

What about Caroline Wintour’s performance did you like?

I just love how she can draw you into the story. She has a great voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could not turn it off. Great story, off the charts sex. WOW. The very best of fantasy listening.

Any additional comments?

I would strongly advise not to get if you are offended by sexual content. I have loved all the books in this series and I think it's worth my credit or purchase price!!

THE WORD 'HOT' DOESN'T EVEN COVER IT !!

These Sweets are my guilty secrets - when I'm fed up with my usual listens like Victorian, Regency, Vampires, Werewolves, Highlanders et etc etc then I find myself drifting to a Maya Banks book for a change and...... what a change it is.

They're all a very hot listen (including BDSM and MMMMF) but with an interesting storyline running through them and they're filled with great sexy,handsome, alpha characters that certainly know what, how and who they are doing.

Worth a credit? Yes, and keep em coming Maya - (figuratively speaking that is) (although the other way works as well).

Shocking at its best!

I was a little sad that the entire series wasn't available when I downloaded this so I started here. I wasn't dissapointed but I was shocked! I immediately feel in love with all the characters. The way they all seemed to embrace someone new into their circle.

The hot parts were hot and pinkened my cheeks. I don't blush easily but there were parts that made me whisper, "Holy heck! They are doing what?"

Worth the credit and I can't wait to read the entire series!

This was just so wrong.....

Any additional comments?

My namesake in a book, cool! NOT! His treatment of her was just disgusting to me and she should have kicked his @@@ rather than take it hoping he would love her back someday. Despite the fuzzy ending this one I could barely finish. I keep going back to it hoping there would be some amazing twist that would make it all seem alright but it never happened. HATED this one.

So so

The story is actually more like a 2.68 for me, but that's not an option. So I rounded up. I was hoping for a Lora Leigh-like type of erotic book. And this story is more erotica than romance too. But it's more hardcore than I like. Meaning, sexual pleasure is based largely on giving and accepting physical pain. And, though I don't have a problem with that sexual taste, it's just not what I like to listen to. But if it's up your alley, then this story is for you. The story was not just junk used to make room for sex acts; the story was ok on its own. It passed the fast-forward test (fast-forwarding just to get through the book and not thinking I'm missing anything) until the last 2 hours or so of the story, which is not bad. Lastly, the story is believable, which is always a plus. No problems with the narrator at all.

If you like it bloody rough and full of stuff

This book in the Sweet bdsm series focuses on Micah and Angelina. The series does variations in excplicit bdsm; the sex is not for the faint of heart. Micah’s kink is pain, both receiving and giving. Rough and tumble in the sheets can be fun, but I don’t see the appeal in getting whipped to the point of drawing blood. Four men doing a tag team over the course of multiple chapters also ran long. I liked that even with the domination and punishment themes, the treatment of both leads was still respectful. Also, although generally in the submissive role, Angelina was strong and not simply a damsel that can only get out of trouble by being saved. She planned and executed her life instead of wringing her hands and bemoaning her fate... and even gave Micah the figurative kick in the pants to get past torturing himself ... hmmm.... maybe even gave him a literal kick, or rather, whip, to painfully demonstrate she was capable of being his HEA.

More often in erotic romances, the complaint is a skimpy storyline that simply bridges the gap to the naughty bits. But here, this was the first book in a while that had me fast forwarding through the sex parts, and investing in the story. This was a police mystery involving a stalker as well as a romance with a rich back story for both Micah and Angelina.

The narration was pretty good, although it can be hard sometimes to distinguish the males (just a hard fact of life that female narrators have less range for their male voices). Faith’s voice is lower and less girly in this book compared to book 1, and I liked that. There is also a good amount of interaction with characters from the prior books, and more introduction to Connor, who presumably will get a book of his own.

On the whole, a solid “edgy” bdsm romance.
