Publisher's Summary

Somebody is out to destroy Elle Simpson and everything she's worked hard to build. As the CEO of a corporate conglomerate, Elle is used to fighting off challengers. However this new threat comes at a time when she finally lets her guard down to meet Prince Charming. And it's unlike anything she's been up against before.
Drake Charles' work on mobile technology has made him a wealthy, powerful man. But he quickly sheds the fame and publicity for a more private life, which earns him the label of a man of mystery. Drake adds to that mystery every year when he hosts a masquerade ball for charity. It's also his best chance to find the one thing he really wants: true love.
Having met behind masks of anonymity, Elle and Drake enjoy a whirlwind night of romance that leaves them both wanting more. But Elle must question everything and everyone as she battles to save her life and career. Can Elle trust Drake to help get her life back, or will she lose everything?

Where does Chosen for Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Better than some, not as good as others.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story start as Cinderella then moves into a business takeover and identity theft. A more plausible romance or getting immediately into the intrigue with the romance as background would have made more sense.


Have you listened to any of Amy McFadden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I like Amy McFadden except when she does a Booklyn accent.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It didn't grab me initially.

- Bookworm "Say something about yourself!"

A decent story. Entertaining enough.

This was an entertaining story. I liked the heroine, Elle, she was a strong business woman. I liked Drake too but would have liked to know more about him, he seemed to be behind the scenes more than with Elle in this story. Not sure I liked the I Love You the day after their one night stand, a bit much to me. The relationship seemed to forced. The chemistry was somewhat there. I think I liked the story of Elle and her business more than the "love story" part of this book. There was a couple of mildly written sex scenes, very mild.

There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book which was great, I like lots of dialogue.

As for the narration, I like Amy McFadden she does a decent job, everyone has their own distinct voice, and she does try to make the men sound like men. She reads with emotion and that is good too.

I got this free on amazon and 1.99 audible whispersync so it was definitely a good deal!
