What did you love best about Venus Desiring?
The continuation of the 2 previous books, and the growth of the characters.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Liam and Chris, they are both sweet and calm
What does Brooke Pillifant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She is AWESOME, the voices of the charters is great and Brooke adds feelings to the book
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes, makes me crave the next book
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.

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
