Publisher's Summary

When Silicon Valley entrepreneur Rachel Zelinsky meets reclusive genius Theo Moore, she finds him strangely compelling. Theo is both arrogant and socially awkward, but he has an aura of power that speaks to Rachel's carefully-hidden submissive side. Disturbed and aroused, she tries to focus on her original objective -- a deal to incorporate his Artificial Intelligence software into her company's popular virtual world. Rachel's not a woman that lets pleasure interfere with business, but for some reason, she can't resist Theo's geeky appeal.
Theo Moore can't be bought. His past battles with poverty make him deeply suspicious of the billionaire CEO. Still, with her voluptuous curves and brilliant mind, Rachel embodies his ultimate sexual fantasy. Too bad his knowledge about sex derives from extensive research and a stash of kinky porn rather than real-world experience.
That doesn't bother Rachel, however. In his bed - in his arms - in his bonds - she discovers the bliss of total surrender. Rachel may be Theo's first lover, but Theo is Rachel's first true Master - and the first man to truly touch her heart. It seems that love may harmonize their differing goals and values, until Rachel's unwitting violation of Theo's trust threatens to tear them apart forever.

It was almost one of my favorites.

I really enjoyed the way Lisabet Sarai took the Alpha/Bdsm genre and twisted it; Rachel being the high-powered "gazillionaire" and Theo the socially awkward virgin. But during sexy times, Theo broke out and Rachel really pushing the "top from the bottom". I loved it. I loved that she let him unleash that side of himself and even while she was submitting to him, she was still helping him and pushing him to be more. I liked how Lisabet wove computer worlds into the story. It was fun to listen to characters who were a bit nerdy and off the beaten path. Coders united!

Then came Chapter 22. Oh how I hated Chapter 22. It completely ruined Theo for me. I kept waiting and listening for redemption. But, no matter what he did after that, he was done for me. It was like with a slap in the face, the story turned back into what this trope has always been: A dominant man who is an Alpha always.. He lost that sweet man vibe for me. It broke my heart, because I really really loved him. I wish I could give up to Chapter 22 5 stars, and after 3 stars.

I like Lisabet's writing, and I'm looking forward to checking out her other books! I hate that I couldn't say that I loved the book 100%. The writing and "story" were great (even after my cut point), but with the big change, it just drew a line for me. Some people may like the way it played out. Everybody but me may like the way it played out. I'm sure I'm the odd one out, but it is what it is.

I think Erin Marsh did a great job narrating the story. At some parts, I wished that there had been a male voice along with hers, but for the most part, having her do all it was good. I really felt what Rachel and Theo were feeling. This was the first thing I've listened to narrated by her, and was not disappointed

Sweet, sexy, and surprising!

Overall: 4 Crazy Ass Stars!!!
Performance: 3.5 Stars
Story: 4 Stars

I really enjoyed it. It was so different from the usual storyline out there in this troupe of virgin/billionaire, or in this case, gazillionaire. I was pleasantly surprised. That's not an easy feat when you read as much as I do.
The narration was okay for me. I would have preferred an actual male narrator for the male POV. I found it a little distracting each time the POV changed. However, I did appreciate the voice changes for the characters.
Lisabet Sarai is a new-to-me author and, overall, I enjoyed her writing. I did have issues with some of the lingo used in the story. I found words like "jism" and "sphincter" to be not so sexy. They kind of ruined the mood so to speak and were very distracting to the scene.
Overall, I give this a solid 4 stars. It was sexy, steamy, sweet and I loved how the roles were reversed. The role reversal was my favorite thing because of how surprising it was to me.
