Publisher's Summary

Unemployed, blacklisted, and pregnant, Sophie Scaife's life is totally upside down. Her relationship with publishing magnate Neil Elwood is on the rocks. Her best friend's career is igniting. And Sophie is afraid that she'll make one of the toughest decisions of her life alone.
When a devastating diagnosis forces Neil to return to London, Sophie throws caution to the wind to follow her heart across the Atlantic. Keeping a scorching affair as red-hot in sickness as it was in health is a challenge, even for two lovers as inventive as Sophie and Neil. But Sophie is more than willing to try anything her sir commands, and their fantasies of control become a welcome refuge from the daily stress of illness.
While Neil's wealth and privilege make adjusting to her new situation easier, Sophie finds herself rebuilding her life around an uncertain future. And while both of them face the changes between them head-on, they're all too aware that their happiness may be fleeting - and that Sophie could lose Neil forever.

Unfortunate purchase!

I purchased books one and two together. After not being able to finish the first book due to content, narration and storyline, I realized my mistake. Never purchase all books without first reading the initial one in the series. So I thought since I had it, I should give it a shot. I actually was hoping the second book was better. This is not a spoiler since within the first hour you find out she gets an abortion (the procedure of which is discussed in detail), he has cancer and her gay girlfriend is not there to support her emotionally. Now I am a firm believer in equality for same sex partners and equal rights and women's right to choose even though if I ever get pregnant I will choose to keep it just because I do not wish to have an abortion. That being said, this story was just disturbing. The book went from bad (book 1) to worse (book 2). After that I had no interest in listening at all. It seemed like this writer tried to touch up on everything that could stir up some kind of strong feeling or emotion in her readers including homosexuality, cancer, and abortion. Bad idea if you ask me especially so in a romance novel. No one purchases a romance in the hopes of it being disguised under drama. Romance is supposed to provide escapism for its readers and not tragedy and realism. So if this is what you are looking for, by all means please purchase. As for others, RUN away from this book. A complete waist of your time.

Didn't even finish reading it!!!! I was disappointed by the narrating. It was hard listening to that fake accent. NO ONE TALKS LIKE THAT! Doesn't do the English accent justice.
