I like K. Ashley books in that she normally has mature characters that I like. They tend to have a little too much of the f...k word but I can cope, I am not a prude. That line "...I did what I was told ..." is overused usually by the female. Okay, all of that I can overlook. However, what turns me off completely is in the scene of lovemaking Knight commands Anya to call him 'Daddy'. It is a serious turn-off and I hope I don't see or hear it in any of Ashley's other books. I doubt I will bother with the rest of this series. There were other things about the characters that was just not appealing like Anya's meekness and Knight's side business to name couple of them but I will stop there.
The narrator did a great job. That much I can say.

Where do I begin... First off, there were so many "Oh God!" and "Oh My God!"'s that I didn't know what to do with my self. And what's with the "yes daddy" bit? I thought that was a bit corny. I can't even tell you how many times I rolled my eyes listening to this book. I need an eye exam to make sure they're ok. Throughout the book I kept asking myself, "Should I just call it quits now and end the torture or should I finish since I've gotten this far?" The story line was ok, but the dialogue was horrible. This book had definite potential. Too bad the dialogue and inner monologue of the heroine sucked so bad. Sigh...

What was most disappointing about Kristen Ashley’s story?
The two lead characters were unlikable in that Knight was beyond dominant, he was bossy and chauvinistic. The female lead had no backbone, no redeeming ability to stand up to Knight. Their pet names spoiled the story completely, they made me completely uncomfortable as they crossed the line of acceptability in my opinion.
How could the performance have been better?
What character would you cut from Knight?

Loved this reading of Knight. Really good actress reading it so well. Hot and fun!!
Good story but too many "omg" and can't cope with a partner being called "daddy". I will read the next one

Considering this book came out about a year after fifty shades, I feel like a bit of plagiarism is at hand. In saying that, I enjoyed the book. It's got your good looking, wealthy, dark history man and your gorgeous but down trodden woman. There are more love scenes in this compared to other books I've read by Kristen Ashley but it's also a bit shorter. There is a lot of the C word used but if it doesn't bother you, then that's fine. The voice is very committed to the story which is good. I would read again.
