Publisher's Summary

Vic Savian knows what he wants when he sees it. And what he wants is his sexy neighbor, Niall Chandler. When he finds her in the hallway of their building being harassed by an aggressive suitor, Vic steps in - and finds himself greatly rewarded....
Sleeping with her gorgeous neighbor - when she didn't even know his last name - was the craziest thing Niall's ever done. Now, she can't seem to get enough of Vic, or what he stirs in her. Suddenly she's exploring uninhibited pleasures she's never known before. But when her past returns to haunt her, she and Vic are forced to venture beyond the pleasures of the flesh, and risk it all on something deeper, something found only in the heart.

I disliked, liked, loved & was frustrated coz.....

Firstly, I think this should be under Erotica rather than Romance because it's a hot explicit listen - so beware - if you don't like your romances coming with a 'Caution Contents are Hot' warning then look elsewhere. I didn't think I was going to like this as it starts off from chapter 1 after very briefly meeting in the hallway of their apartments followed by just one gulp of whiskey in his apartment along with very little/no conversation between the two they have passionate graphic hot sex but I felt it somehow just seemed a bit cold, clinical and implausible.

Slowly the two lovers begin to get to know each other and so does the listener finally begin to learn about the characters, their backgrounds and feelings. However, it's one of those frustrating listens that has you screaming "talk to him just tell him" - if only they would have one serious conversation as well as sex, or before or after, then all could be cleared up - but oh no.

So things go from good to great then disastrous but during this time the romance of the story finally comes out rather than just the erotica. But again, I get frustrated because she stays at his family's ranch to try to clear things up but after weeks and weeks she still hasn't done or said a thing to him. Eventually the usual hits the fan and then, after finally talking (see they should have listened to me) all is cleared up but it ends so abruptly that I felt robbed of the romance bit that just one more chapter or even an Epilogue could have given me.

Worth a credit? Yes but barely - I much prefer these types of romance stories by authors such as Lora Leigh, Maya Banks, Lorelei James to name just a few as their erotica is well done and well placed within the pages of their stories. But hey this is just my opinion - you may love it.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Well, I liked it

I have passed this one by several times because a reviewer I follow didn’t like it. Then another reviewer I follow did like it, so here I am.

Niall has suffered tragedy in her past and she does not open up about it. I actually can relate to her character because I do know someone that has that personality of being very reserved with their feelings. As far as her sexual feelings, Niall is open for everything Vic throws at her.

Vic is so hot. He is a very dominate character. I happen to love dominate men so his character is so yummy. He does have high standards and he does not forgive easily. Vic has been hurt in his past too so it doesn’t make it easy for Niall and him to have a relationship.

Of course if you’ve read previous reviews you know that this book contains explicit sexual situations. I’ve heard better scenarios, but I’ve also heard worse. In my opinion it’s a little above the middle range of sexual content.

In my opinion I’d say this one is worth a credit. I enjoyed it.

- Leesa "I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end."
