Publisher's Summary

Is he worth the heartbreak? At nearly 40, Julie isn't so sure she'll ever find a man who is, so she's vowed that all her big 4-0 decisions will have zip to do with relationships. A successful theater manager, she agrees to travel to North Carolina and help a friend put her erotic performance theater on its feet. Julie has always been curious and drawn to the BDSM world, and now she can safely explore that world in the environment she knows best.
Desmond Hayes is the roofing contractor repairing their rundown theater building, but he's also a rigger, well-known in the BDSM world for his rope artistry. He's not just a top, though; he's a Dom whose unexpected quirks mesh too well with Julie's eccentric personality and awaken her submissive side. From the time he was born, Des has been fighting the odds against him. Because of that, he's kept his relationships inside the BDSM scene, with clear boundaries. While Julie has almost given up on finding a person worth loving through better or worse - or pleasure and pain - Des never expected to receive that gift.
He's not letting that treasure get away - no matter how much rope he has to use to bind her to him.

new narrator ( not my fav)

After having Maxine narrate all the previous books. I didn't really care for Liz T. . Her character's voices were ok but the general narration lacked richness, at times very flat. Even her Desmond characterization didn't evoke the passion that the word were saying he felt. This is not a book I'd listen to over and over again.

I may try again later...

I know this book has a lot of high ratings, but I was really bored with it. It is a very slow moving book and I frequently became bored with the inner monologues. I struggled to get to chapter 12 and I just gave up. It's rare I get sleepy listening to books and it happened frequently listening to this one. I can't say it's bad because I didn't finish it, it barely kept my interest.

Really wonderful!

I was sad the finish this story and the Nature of Desire series. I've listened to them continuously over the past several weeks. Re-reading others' reviews I disagree with those criticizing Liz Thomson's narration. I thought she was great, very authentic. I loved all of the stories, and I found Worth the Wait the most interesting and erotic. Is this really Joey Hill's last offering in the series? I hope not :)
