Publisher's Summary

Grace Parker's new boss is a sadist. Wealthy, gorgeous, intimidating, and cocky, he is a man she should run away from.

Virginal Grace Parker isn’t the kind of woman Dimitri Valentine likes to seduce into his world of dark passions. But what started out as a game soon turns into the challenge of his life, as Grace refuses to submit to his will. 

Determined to have her surrender, seducing the innocent beauty becomes his obsession. Grace has other ideas. Self-labeled as asexual, Grace has no desire to become the next pawn in his parade of broken hearts. Tempting her with deviant pleasures of the flesh, it becomes a battle of wills. The only question in the end, is who is surrendering to who?

Valentine - Sometimes love hurts so good.

Holy buckets

I absolutely refuse to accept this as the end to their story. I don’t want to give anything away but just when I thought I was comfortable in the story things got flipped on it’s head. I’ve refreshed my goodreads page a dozen times hoping it will magically change and this will become a series. Michelle if you read this please take pity on me and give me more!

I would recommend this to people who like bdsm/ steamy romance but feel like you’ve read it all. This was a fresh twist and I am so here for it!

It takes the right person...

Grace believed she was asexual and didn’t think passion or love would ever be in her life. Then she met Dimitri Valentine and everything she thought to be true was turned on it’s head. This was a well-written story with just the right amount of heat, angst, twists and turns to keep you listening. Melissa Stiletto does a good job with the narration. Michelle Hughes did a great job with this story and I’d like to have a continuation of Dimitri and Grace to see where their story goes. #AudiobookObsession

Sexy narration and great read

Grace has never had an interest in any man to the point she thinks herself asexual. Then she meets Valentine and realizes this is not the case. He is a dom and is very attracted to her. Much to his amazement he learns she is a virgin. When he does he slowly introduces her to his world. This is their love story that is full of steamy sex, intrigue, love, friendship, and an unexpected twist near the end. I must say I never saw that one coming.

The narrator is a very good storyteller. She gives life to the characters. I asked to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book. I must say I had to think about the twist at the end before I could really absorb the uniqueness of it to the plot.

Grace’s Dream Man! Great Story! Great Listen🎧

Great story, it grabbed me from the start and blew my mind by the end! It is well written with interesting storylines filled with drama, twists, suspense, action and hot romance. Great character developed and chemistry between the two leads, Valentine & Grace. Valentine a Dom and Grace is an innocent and self proclaimed asexual. Love the build up to their relationship and the direction Michelle Hughes went with their story. Well done, very well done! Loved the characters, the leads and the secondary characters, would love to hear more of Lina and Don. Thanks for this great story!

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the talented Melissa Stiletto. She is s terrific voice performer and entertaining storyteller. She brings the characters to life, gives them heart and personality. Thanks for another great listen🎧

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

Surprises All The Way Through!!!

This novel had mystery, suspense, BDSM, dark romance, erotic sex and I loved all.

The characters were written to strong.The author Michelle Hughes had that planned from page one, that's how the story was going to unfold and we would feel her wrath.

The narrator Melissa Stiletto excelled at what she needed to do for the character's to come alive in storyline. I have to tell you, no one could have prepared me for the ending.

This novel deserves more than 5-stars and if I could give them I would. This was an AWESOME, AWESOME novel and I stand up to applaud you!!!

Unbelievable

This book was my first Michelle Hughes book. I can honestly say I am extremely impressed with this Author. I definitely didn’t expect this level of attention to detail and complexities but I was very happy with this story. I hope the rest of her books are just as trilling as this story was. I’m hoping that the author makes a sequel to this book. I definitely didn’t see that ending!
The narrator does a fabulous job with the characters and the voices. Melissa Stiletto has an amazing voice and I enjoyed listening to her tell this story.
I definitely recommend this book!

Twisting and turning!

My second Michelle Hughes book, and this was nothing like the first! Valentine is a billionaire sadist. Grace is young, fresh out of college and his new employee. There is a spark of recognition between them after first seeing each other before, but is it enough to ignite? I was expecting a regular contemporary romance, but this took me completely by surprise. It's very well written, a plot that is full of steam, passion and suspense. The characters are smart and the plot takes a turn I didn't see coming. Some BDSM, a terrorist attack and a love that borders on real, we get to take this journey and see if the rich, dangerous man can get the stubborn, beautiful girl to submit. Hughes has a winner with this book.

Melissa Stiletto gives another great performance. She has good, concise voicing for her characters and she is able to emote every feeling precisely. I love her narration and it kept me hanging til the very end.

Interesting story

When I first started listening to this audible book, I thought ok its your typical Alpha Dom, see’s an unexpected innocent and teaches her his ways and it started playing out that way, with some suspense and intrigue thrown in. Then pow we reach a twist that throws you off guard and it’s like wow wasn’t expecting that one. All in all I have to say this is a different story from your typical BDSM read.
The narrator did a nice job, but my thought was a younger voice would have been better.

A Book I Won't Soon Forget!

I'm really glad I hadn't read any reviews before listening to this audiobook as it would have ruined the shock of the very unexpected twist near the end. I went through most of the book thinking how much I loved this 5 star book and how I wanted to check out other books this author had written. Then I got to the twist which was confusing at first until it was fully explained. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. I think I just needed time to process it so I ended up relistening to it a second time. Without giving anything away, the twist made a predictable book unforgettable. It really was a great book but I wish the ending had an epilogue and not just ended quite so abruptly. I recommend this book to anyone looking for hot and kinky with a twist of uniqueness. Melissa Stiletto has a really nice voice and did a great job with both male and female characters.
