How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Waitress Marjorie Ivarsson is the picture of naiveté. Raised by her grandmother, she'd rather go to bingo than go dancing. But when she's asked to be a bridesmaid in her friend Bronte's destination wedding, she finds herself venturing into new and exciting territory. The wedding is set on the billionaire groom's private island, and Marjorie is fascinated by all the new people she meets. Most fascinating of all is the man she saves from almost drowning in the blue waters of the island lagoon. She might even have a bit of a crush on him. Unfortunately, she's not the only girl who finds him so intriguing.

Hotshot television producer Robert Cannon has a reputation for womanizing, drinking, and partying to excess. They couldn't be more wrong for each other... so why are they constantly drawn together like magnets?

Contains mature themes.

Good read

Not for the faint of heart a lot of swearing going on in this book. The story line was predictable but kept my interested in how the story would unfold. Enjoyed the narrator very much she gave life to the characters and kept the flow of the storyline.

It didn't really measure up to what I expected.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book wasn't what I expected it to be. Don't get me wrong. It was a sweet romantic love story. I just found it a bit too unrealistic and contrived. I found the writing a little immature. I didn't like the vocal reading. There was something wrong with the inflections in her voice.

Rough but Amazing!

From the direct, bold, foul mouth of Rob Cannon to the sweet and innocence of Margorie Iverson, this story has it all. Beware there is alot of "f" bombs dropped throughout this story but that is what makes the characters in the story seem so much more realistic and ones that you can relate to. Who doesn't know a guy who has a "who gives a fuck" attitude about life and then meets a girl who makes him second guess his life choices and makes him a fucking mess inside. A man who can't get the thought of her out of his head; she makes him want to be a better man? I personally know a few. Couple that with a 24 year old women who happens to be inisanely tall, insecure and a virgin and now you have the makings of a great story. Jessica Clare has brought these two characters together in a unique and amazing way in this touching and memorable love story that will have you, experiencing emotions of laughter, sadness, shock and excitement as you journey through the ups and downs of this story. Warning: the sex scenes are definitely XXX rated and steamy as fuck! Jessica Clare has delivered yet again another must read. I give it 5 stars all the way.

Weirdly awkward

Awkward in a good way at times. You're either going to love or hate this book. You kind of just have to give it a chance and see what happens.

NOT IMPRESSED!

I felt like everything about this book was about how awkwardly tall the main female character was. the story line wasn't good either. It just kept dragging on and on.

not for me

I didn't care for the dialog, (too lame), or the male character(s). The female was nice, but is anybody that naive. I also didn't care for the narrators male voice.

Gave it a Second Listen

Where does The Billionaire and the Virgin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book would be in the middle because the narrator almost ruined it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator made the tough men characters to sound so breathy and feminine it was hard to pass over. This made the female characters better than the male.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Way too feminine to pull off these hard males. She needs to be the narrator in an all female book, cause she can not pull off the males.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, I actually listened to this book one and did not listen much because of the narrator. Then, I listened again because I usually like the author. this time I was prepared for the narrator and worked hard at listening rather than letting her interfere with the story.

Any additional comments?

This is worth a listen if you can get past the breathy males. I will probably listen to the rest of the series, but hope the narrator changes.

Love these billionaires!

Romantic, sweet, and sexy! Robert and Marjorie sizzle together! I guess it's true when they say Opposites do attract!
