I very much enjoyed the way the character's fantasies took on a dimension of reality, like her thoughts were so potent they made her actually live out the scenes she was imagining. This aspect was so engrossing, in fact, I'm not entirely sure if the ending was "real" or a real-ized fantasy!
I have to go with 50 Shades, because whatever a person's opinion on that work, it seems to be the benchmark everybody is familiar with for this genre. Say what you will about that author's technical ability and style, ultimately a book's "goodness" or "badness" comes down to how it makes the reader/listener feel, and how well it does it. THAT is why 50 Shades was so popular. In that regard, despite the much shorter length, I enjoyed Dark Secrets considerably more than that other story.
Alexandria does a superb job of narration - storytelling, really. The difference is that she made me feel like I was sitting face to face with the character, in person. She made me forget that this was a fictional story being read to me and made it more real in a dimension wholly different from any available to even the most talented author.
Sometimes you find exactly what you're looking for
I could go on and on about this story, but nobody wants to read literary analyses. Bottom line: even if you're NOT a fan of erotica, this is an entertaining, engrossing tale, and well worth your time for the experience.

Deliciously provocative. Arousing.
The narrator is what makes the story come alive for me. I wouldn't imagine reading this and having the same reaction.
It was a thirty-minute listen, so it was quite easy to listen to all at once.
