Publisher's Summary

"Robbed of all sense and co-ordination, I seem to hang there, in his grip. Staring. His eyes scan me, cruising over my face, then downwards, and his expression is amused, certainly, but also disturbingly analytical. After what I did, and what I felt back there in the cloakroom, I feel connected to him, intimately, but clearly all he feels for me is mild interest and curiosity. Or is it?"When reformed bad girl Maria Lewis takes a dull job in local government back in her home town, the quiet life she was looking for is quickly disrupted by the enigmatic presence of her boss, Director Robert Stone. A dangerous and unlikely object of lust, Stone touches something deep in Maria's sensual psyche and draws her to an erotic underworld, a far cry from life in the dusty offices of Borough Hall.

What a romp!

I enjoyed the playful nature of the book and the narrator was spot on. While it wasn't as hard core as it could have been, it was still a bit more 'exey' than a romance novel. It was a story, human foibles come into (or is that 'out to'?) play, but it wasn't mean spirited. I doubt this book would have been nearly as enjoyable without Ms Kollander's sparkling performance.

Is there a story here?

Lots of one-on-one sex. The story line is very weak and the characters are not very believable. The only reason I was able to finish listening was because it was short. This is likely to be my last book by this author.

Good Fun

Oo-er Mrs.! Kinky hi-jinks at the Town Hall and the sweet, old, grey haired Secretary never even noticed! A wild, far fetched but entertaining romp and certainly one of the better titles in this category.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Whilst I enjoyed listening to this book, not one of her best interesting story theme but lacking somehow and I can't explain why

If you’ve listened to books by Portia Da Costa before, how does this one compare?

I have listened to the first two Accidental book which I loved so sad the third is not available

What does Petra Kollander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Neither liked or disliked this narrator have certainly heard better

Could you see Entertaining Mr Stone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No not enough
