I bought this audio because Jeremy York and Summer Morton are two of my favorite narrators. They did their best with what they had to work with, but sadly for me it wasn't enough for me to love this book. One of the biggest things for me was the lack of chremistry, I just didn't feel it. At the beginning her husband is a thorn in her side and I guess I expected for him to be a bigger problem than he was. The ending wrapped up too quickly and certain things weren't brought up, for example her mothers situation. Lily was also very forgiving for the whole "I was trying to forget you" scene at the end. Another thing that drove me crazy was the dialogue. Too many he said, she said, I said, that drove me a little nutty. With that said I did like Josh. He needs absolute control in his life and by the end I understood why. I liked the banter with his friends and they were very likeable characters. Lili's character was harder to connect with and understand and not developed as much as Josh. Overall I liked the story but didn't fall in love with it.
Female narration-4.5 stars, French accent needed a bit of work.
Male narration-5 stars
Both narrators are great at voicing different characters.

Josh, a handsome sexy focussed rich Businessman, is at a worthy Fundraising Gala for Injured Military Veterans and that's where he first encounters an intriguing woman - who doesn't know him, his PTSD nightmares, his scars, his reputation, his sexual proclivities or his secrets. Unlike the many shallow and fake women he usually goes for this stunning woman's not looking to impress him, spend his money or lure him into bed - no, she's speaking out in defence of a blind Veteran and to save his innocent Service Dog. Josh is intrigued but nothing more and he certainly wasn't going to act on it.... not until he's formally introduced to the blushing beauty that is Lily but it's by her desperate sweaty much older husband who needs Josh's backing at any cost.... any cost at all.
They both feel the bolt of instant connection, chemistry and attraction but Josh can't rely on just his instincts so a meeting is arranged and a barter is made - he'll back the slimy husband's worthless Project because Martin Poe's Proposition so easily included his wife in the deal. And Josh didn't like this one bit, was determined to find out if Lily was Poe's eager accomplice or just an innocent unaware pawn in need of rescuing... but it would eventually turn out that they'd rescue each other.
Lily was desperate - she had a sick Mom in a Home and had made some catastrophically bad decisions that held her prisoner in a loveless marriage and this handsome stranger was offering her a way out. But the price was inconceivable - her body would become Josh's sex toy for as long as it takes to get her husband's Project off the ground. However, the Project was never going to work, lives would be threatened, intricate secretive plans had to be followed, enemies with deadly intentions had to be caught and painful secrets would eventually be revealed. And along the way Josh would introduce intense flavor and variety to Lily's unfulfilled 'vanilla' sex life with passion, toys, blindfolds, bindings and light Dom demands.... but boundaries were crossed, hearts got involved, someone got hurt and the heartfelt cry for trust was coldly ignored which left disbelief, devastation and months of broken dreams.
I liked the characters, the plot, the dual POV narration and eventually felt the chemistry that built when lust grew into much much more.... but I never heard the "I love you's" during the sexually eventful and emotionally raw outpouring of tenderness and truths that ended the listen. It should've been said, I needed it to be said and, out of all the many 'he a she saids' this was an important said to be said. Also, it cried out for an Epilogue.
Worth a credit? I did enjoy it, there were some nice interactions with secondary characters and there was a mystery, drama and angst amongst the MANY hot sex scenes and YES I thought it creditworthy. However for me, it hovered and stayed on the brink of being a Good listen but it sadly never soared into becoming a GREAT listen.
