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.

Great Continuation

I really enjoy this series. We get to see Jessica, Chris, and Justin settling into their lives and telling friends and family about their unconventional relationship. I like that we got to see different types of reactions and that they felt real. We also get Hilary and Liam. Hilary is just starting to discover what she's interested in and opening her mind. It was interesting to see these two very different relationships. I can't wait for the next book to see how everything turns out.

Brooke Pillifant's narration really good. She's clear and easy to listen to.

3rd book in the series

I am loving this series! The first book was good and I wanted to read the second. After the second one I was really interested in getting the 3rd book because it was also about Jessica’s best friends relationship with Liam. But now that I have finished book 3 I HAVE to start book 4 right away. I have to find out how both relationships turn out! I love the characters and the narration is great! If you like great characters and lots of different kinds of sexual scenes this is the book for you!

Great series!!

Definitely one of my favorites by Golden Angel. She's become a go to author for me and this series is exactly why. If you like books that have an interesting storyline and a high level of hotness you will enjoy this series. The narration like the writing was consistently amazing to the very end.

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.

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
