Publisher's Summary

Explore a hidden world of erotic fantasies, where the greatest pleasures are stolen and the fiercest passions are untamed....

For years Callie Taylor has been obsessed with two things: a man she can never have and escaping to Paris, where she can follow her artistic passions. But everything changes when Callie meets Wes Thorne, a wealthy, mysterious art collector and famous dominant. Despite all the nights she's spent dreaming of another man, it is Wes' predatory gaze that suddenly consumes her every thought and sets her body on fire. One touch from him promises unforgettable passion, but Callie knows that passion often comes with a price....

From the moment he sets eyes on Callie, Wes is intrigued by her artistic talent and her delightful innocence of all things erotic. A stolen kiss leaves him aching and desperate to claim her in a way he's never wanted any woman. But first he must convince her to surrender her control. And what better place to seduce an artistic soul like Callie's than Paris?

Ms. Smith has a GREAT series here - Nice twists

I listened to the series in order and I think that helps a lot.
This one was a fun change of pace away from the twin brothers and their history.
Going into Callie and Wes's story was fun, distracting and at times Hot. While Wes isn't really my taste I could appreciate the distraction the story provided. I mean I know a rich, arrogant, prick is all the rage right now - I am kinda fed up with it, but it makes the travel and excess easy when you don't have to worry about accounting for your characters finances.

This was my least favorite of the 3 I have listened to so far.

Lightweight, superficial, 8 hours too long

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I don't think anything would nudge this book into 4 stars

What could Lauren Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The female lead was tiresome, unbelievable, not very bright. The plot was not engaging. It was hard to care about anyone in the book except for the horse. So if the characters or the plot can't be improved perhaps more time with the horse?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment and disbelief.

Any additional comments?

Skipping ahead 10 to 15 minutes at a time is strongly recommended.
