Isla is working in a lingerie boutique while she ponders and plans steps that'll put her derailed life back on track - she's a gifted Violinist like her world famous Grandmother who took Isla under her wing when they realized her Mother had been exploiting her. Isla is beautiful, confident, intelligent, ambitious and spunky so there's no wonder Gabriel Foster is immediately drawn to her when he visits the shop. And Isla is equally drawn to the handsome, charismatic powerful businessman who is greedily eyeing her - so when he propositions Isla she's flattered and brazenly accepts. But things don't go to plan because she could never have expected what would follow.
Gabriel Foster is CEO of the family business empire and he lives by rules.. however, when he's sexually instantly drawn to the very alluring sales assistant, those rules temporarily waiver.. but they don't break. However, the more he sees Isla the more he likes her but Gabriel has to continually resist and fight his attraction because a) their age difference (she's 20 and he's 30) b) he doesn't date his staff.. and 3) his sexual desires aren't vanilla. But his rules get tested the night he sees her dancing at Skin - a Nightclub with a 'behind the scenes' sex Club that caters for the willing, the eager and the wild.
There was no mention of this being a sub/Dom bdsm story but that's where I initially thought it was heading.. however there was only very light play once these two characters eventually took things to the next level. It took Gabriel a while to give in to his desires for Isla who was consuming his thoughts and, once that happened, sexcapades followed. No dramas, very little angst, alternating POV's and the narration was ok.
Worth a credit? I liked this story.. but I just didn't love it and who knows why some of us think "wow" while other listeners think "meh" and you don't know whether it was due to the story, the characters, the narration or just you that failed to connect . So all I can say is that I'm ok with using MY credit.. but I hesitate in recommending it to you.. and unfortunately the books about Gabriel's brothers will sadly have to wait in my Wish List waiting for a 50% sale.

this narrator was not right , Gabriel is supposed to be an imposing character. this narrator did not go with the books character at all.
