Wow! Such a Great Contemporary Romance Story!!!

Ruby Rose is a reporter/writer that goes undercover to write an article and possibly a book on Domestic Discipline. She starts working at a BDSM club as a bartender. Things are going well until she meets Evan Steel. He is a popular guy that represents the lifestyle she has been trying to understand and write about.

Ruby meets Evan and the attraction is mutual. She tries to guard her heart but Evan's honesty takes her by surprise and little by little he breaks down her walls. Something that started as research is turning into something else. The worse part is that she conceals her job and the reason that led her to work at a BDSM club. The more involved they are the harder it is to come clean.

This is a great book! The author did an amazing job developing the characters and story. I could not put it down. I was really surprised because this is not my favorite genre yet I loved it! This could have been under Erotica because their passion is described in details.

The narrator did an awesome Job by bringing this book to life. I really enjoyed listening to it.

If you love unconventional romance stories with an Alpha male figure that can be loving, tender, romantic, and honest, you will love this book.

This book was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion. My reviews are based on similar books from the same/similar genre. I do not base my reviews on my favorite genre or all time favorite audiobooks.

Conflicted about this one...but enjoyable listen!

For me, this story was pretty good overall. I liked the premise and enjoyed listening to the story throughout.

Ruby is a beautiful yet naive girl who's trying to make her name as a writer and wants to do a story on BDSM or Domestic Discipline. I found it a bit too convenient that the face of the scene falls head over heels in love with her at first sight, but Alta Hensley made it work as more of a coincidence. The story progresses and Evan/Ruby profess their love and make absolute statements about their love and relationship within weeks of meeting each other. However, the foreshadowing made it clear that Ruby's lie would rock the boat. Sure enough, he finds out about it and can't forgive her. But through a series of events, he comes to realize, he can't live without her, again, and they begin anew.

The story goes into some depth about DD and how people who choose to live that lifestyle believe it helps their relationship. Those parts were pretty interesting as well.

The narration was pretty good for the most part. I did go through times where I felt like the emotion was too intense (through the voice) than what it should have been. Good job on keeping the voices straight and I was able to identify the speaker without issue.

I guess the most off-putting part of the story was what I felt to be constant overdone and excessive statements about the character's feelings. I'm a guy, so take that for what it's worth. It just felt at times like the feelings being expressed were overkill. The kind that made me want to roll my eyes and tell them to grow up and get on with it. The narration of these parts didn't help much. It was read with as much emotion as she could muster which blew these feelings way out of proportion.

There were a few sex scenes and they were pretty graphic at times, but nothing too far out of the ordinary.

Overall, I would recommend this to others, as I believe it was a good book on the whole.

I received a free copy of this audio book for an honest review.
