Publisher's Summary

Jessica's best friend, Hilary, has had several run-ins with Liam, a sexy Dom from Stronghold who is good friends with Jessica's boyfriends, Justin and Chris. While Hilary finds him attractive, and he's just as attracted to her, she's not sure that the BDSM scene is for her, and he's not sure he wants to invest time in a newbie to the scene. Liam's been looking for a relationship for a while, but he finds that a lot of subs want more bondage and punishment than he's interested in. Is Hilary what he's been looking for? And will she find the courage to let them try?

Meanwhile, Jessica's family is less than supportive as she struggles to come to terms with the reality of having two boyfriends who share her. Justin and Chris want to take their relationship to the next level, but how can she when her parents are avoiding her because of that relationship?

The third installment in the Venus Rising Quartet.

Love this series

I can't say enough good things about this series. I am loving it so much. Yes there is a lot of sexy times but it doesn't overwhelm the storyline at all. The storyline is great and very well developed. The characters are all very personable and you can't help but empathize with them. I can't wait to listen to the final book in the series and see how everything works out for everyone.

I am happy to say that Brooke's narration improved greatly between this book and the last. I enjoyed her performance a lot more. It felt a lot more polished and professional. There were still a few little hiccups along the way but nothing that detracted from the story too much. I look forward to seeing how her performance improves in the last book if the series as well.

Venus Rising Continues

After listening to this book, the series title has started to make more and more sense to me. This series is more than just sex, its about discovering what one desires and finding your sexual self. I enjoyed the new characters and seeing them come together, although I miss having the entire book be about Jessica and her men. I have a feeling I know how the fourth book will go and hope to see equal parts of Jessica and Hilary.

Again, the narration was not very good. I feel like Brooke could be amazing if she worked more on her timing, flow, and editing.

Hot newcomer

This is the continuation of the Venus series. This audible’s story is about Liam and Hilary, and their relationship.
Hilary isn’t sure she’s even into the whole BDSM scene so she’s not sure she wants a relationship but she can’t fight her attraction to Liam. The feeling seems mutual.
I loved this couple. They seem so real to me.
I love their story.
Brooke Pillifant does a good job of creating the characters in this story.

Loving this Venus Rising Quartet! Fantastic🔥Series

I am loving this series, it is well written and well told! I just love the characters and the world Golden Angel created. The storylines are interesting and they lured me right in and captivated my mind from start to end. This book picks up right where the second book “Venus Aspiring” left off. Chris, Jessica and Justin grow closer but are still dealing with family issues and acceptance of their unconventional relationship. There is a lot more of Hillary and Liam in this book. They get to know each other more, Hillary explores more of the BDSM world to test what she likes. Liam is a little reluctant to push her, wants her to like what she likes for her own needs and not just for him. I really like that guy. There is a few appearances of some of the other Stronghold Doms characters too. I am looking forward to see what happens next the 4th and final book. I am sure there will be plenty of drama as well as emotions, especially when Jessica confronts her family. Also need to see what is going to happen with Hillary and Liam. I highly recommend this series, it is enjoyable and entertaining and there is never a dull moment. There are some smoking hot scenes too, nobody does it better than Golden Angel. Thanks for another great story!

I listened to the Audible edition, Brooke Pillifant is a wonderful narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. You can hear the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story projected in her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Interesting continuation to the series

I'm Venus Desiring I've enjoyed watching as Jessica, Justin and Chris continue to find their way as they cement their unique relationship and begin to let the world know who they are as a strong personal unit. It has been fascinating to see more of Hillary and Liam as they explore their attraction.As expected, Golden Angel's writing is concise and extremely descriptive making this a book meant for non-judgemental adults. Brooke Pillifant's narration brings the characters to life and makes it feel like you're there with them. I've enjoyed the secondary characters as they bring extra dimension to the story. I was fortunate to receive the audio via Audio book Obsession.

A great addition to the Series

Venus Desiring continues the story with Jessica and her two men. But is adds in the romance of Liam and Hillary. The connection between the two romances flow so smoothly. Liam and Hillary had a bad start but when Hillary wants to explore her naughty side, Liam is the one assigned to introduce her. Their romance is fast and sexy! This is one hot and sexy story that you cannot put down.

Although this story is part of a series, it can be read alone. I would definitely recommend reading this series in order though. There is some back story that will just enhance the full experience.

Brooke Pillifant's narration was wonderful. Her voice was easy to listen to and added to the story experience. She was able to distinguish the characters with ease. Ms Pillifant brought out every emotion with ease. She brought the story to life.

My Thoughts on Venus Desiring

Book three of this series continues where book two left off and adds an additional couple element. We still get to see Jessica, Chris and Justin as they continue to settle into their new life and try to find a way to tell their family and close friends about their unconventional relationship. Some people aren't happy. Some people do and say terrible things in response to the news. And some people handle it amazingly. I love that the author gave us all of that though, and with realistic reactions. How family and friends react, as well as how Jessica, Chris and Justin react all felt very true to the characters I've become so interested in and also seem plausible as to how someone might react in this situation.

This story also introduced Hilary and Liam. Their dynamic is so different then the other relationship. Not only because there are two people involved instead of three, but also because Hilary isn't as interested in going deep into the BDSM lifestyle as Jessica. Luckily Liam is turning out to be the perfect match, although they are taking their relationship at a much different and comparatively slower pace.

The narration again was very well done. The same narrator from book two was back for this one and I still liked the job she did overall.

The story itself ended with things more unresolved in my opinion then the previous book. It was more like book one's ending, and now I have to wait for book 4 to come out on audio so I can get all my lingering questions answered. But I will definitely be on the look out for it.

Such a great series

What made the experience of listening to Venus Desiring the most enjoyable?

As with other audible books its a great way to revisit favourite books and characters

What other book might you compare Venus Desiring to, and why?

Its easy to say it but the other 3 books in the Venus series - all worth a read (or listen) though probably best to do them in order ...

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The aftermath of Jessica and Hilary getting very, very drunk was just brilliant!!

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

The absolute focus, care & love of Justin and Chris when it comes to Jessica

Any additional comments?

When you've finished enjoying the Venus quartet I thoroughly recommend moving onto the sequel in the shape of the Stronghold series
