Publisher's Summary

Jeffrey Kuyper was a once-in-a-generation talent and I was his muse.

Jeffrey's death shocked the art world and upended my life. His last portrait is an intimate reminder of our final weeks together. Now it's up for auction and I want it more than anything. When a cold-mannered man in a dark suit outbids me, I'll agree to anything to buy it from him - even a weekend in his bed.

The narrator made a wonderful job

I listen to the audiobook. I was looking for something short to listen and I really didn’t expect much of the book but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. The narration was beautifully done. I got into the story very easily and I think it had a lot to do with the way it was narrated.

It was a lot of emotion in the book. It was easy to feel the grief and I didn’t liked how quick everything went out, but I did enjoy it and liked the emotions behind the words. I liked the BDSM elements of the story, but what I liked the most was how easy it was to get in touch with the main characters feelings, mostly Oliver.

I like the story a lot; narration lingered with me

This story was hot and very powerful, despite being quite short. It has a haunting quality that pulled me in. I wanted to know more about the main characters and with there was more!

Originally, I thought the narration was just okay, it had a stilted, awkward tendency. The vocal pacing and pauses didn't always sound natural. But days later, I realized the raw feelings of the story was amplified by the narrator's style and the story and voice continued to linger in my mind. So I did find the narration a powerful complement to the story.

Emotional Kink

A short story with a side of kink. Toby Trail did a very nice job. He really brought out the emotions of grief and lust. This audiobook could've been
another hour at least! Well done. Enjoyed.
