Since the beginning, Laid Bare, the first book in this series, I’ve gotten every book Audible released because I loved that first book. Unfortunately none of the other books that have come out on Audible have impressed me at all. I was hoping this one would impress me as much as the first one, so I pre-ordered it and waited anxiously for it, just like I did on all the others.
Sadly, we have the sexually explicit language with the boring love story. It’s similar to the previous books in that boy meets girl, they fall in love, and you hear the inner ramblings of their minds or the silly conversations that men sit and have about the woman. I actually have trouble with the idea of men sitting around having sappy conversations about “their women” in the manner that they do. I’m not a stickler about fictional writing but this kind of thing even gets to me.
So I’m not giving this series anymore of my time or money. It’s obvious that none of the books are going to be as exciting as the first. It takes more than explicit sexual situations and sappy conversations. I’ll just stay with Sara Fawkes, Olivia Cunnings, Maya Banks and Shala Black.
If you liked books 2 and 3 then I would advise you to get this one because it’s very similar. It's just Adrian's story this time. As for my recommendation, it's a NO. I'd advise you to use your credit on something better.

I was so looking forward to this next addition and Pre-ordered it in anticipation and it started off well with a good storyline (although I didn't like the Narrator's 'haughty' British accent for the female lead)..... but it soon just fell apart.
Unrealistic events during the plot, it went on and on and on during the never-ending dialogue of what a good mother she is, then does he/she love me - followed by hours of nothingness when the H/H would just have lots of explicit sex and say how much they love each other. It all left me without that 'feel good' emotion when a tender romance blossoms, builds and blooms into an undying love. What planet does Lauren Dane live on that gets a group of hunky guys talking about 'feelings' and giving 'love advice' to each other all the time? because I personally think they'd rather stick needles in their eyes.
There was lots of references to a big 'secret' and when the .... did eventually hit the fan it was just dull and the fallout was only a few Paragraphs long.
Worth a credit? I'm so disappointed at having to say NO as this series had been good so far but I'd really have to consider risking another credit if there should be a 5th book in the series.
