Elaine Watkins, Public Relations Advisor, is surprised when she receives a summons from the very attractive and enigmatic Dr. Xavier Vincent. She worships the talented physician and company icon responsible for developing the cure that saved her sister’s life and isn’t immune to his charm. Even though puzzled by his request, she is excited and eager to get started on his latest project.
But Dr. Vincent has other ideas. Instead of discussing cures, drugs and marketing strategies, he asks Elaine to join him in Paris to indulge his unique sexual appetites.
Torn between gratitude for saving her sister, her attraction for the powerful man and compromising her pre-conceived notions of sexuality, she must decide if it’s easier to feed his desires or walk away. Until she devises a plan of her own.
“Make no mistake, Elaine, I am a king. Kings command and conquer. They are brutal and uncompromising. You don’t want a king. Face it, you came here expecting a saint.” – Dr. Xavier Vincent
I listened to this audiobook, completely unaware of what I was getting myself into. I knew this was erotica. I also knew that it won an audiobook award for best audio. The rest I really wasn’t aware was going to happen, and I won’t spoil it all and put all that in here. You’ll just have to experience to find out. Yeah…I can’t really say ANYTHING about what’s in it because you NEED to be as shocked as I was. I will tell you that I completely get WHY it won an award. Because HOLY SMOKIN’ COWS are Erin de Ward and Noah Michael Levine hot together. I swear my earbuds were going to catch fire a few times.
Ms. Mason writes a very compelling love story. It’s extremely unique and interesting, to say the least. I will tell you also, flat out, under no certain terms, if you can’t stand the heat, do NOT go into Ms. Mason’ kitchen because…yeah, let’s just say, she brings it and holds NOTHING back…and by nothing – I mean N.O.T.H.I.N.G. So consider that your fair warning. Now if you like your love stories set on fire (at the level of being immersed in the sun) then PLEASE get this book. Now, I know, I know…I’ve not READ the book, I don’t know how immersive the book is. I CAN tell you that if you are able, GET the audiobook. I…yeah…just get the audiobook, believe me, you nor your significant other will complain…just sayin’.
NARRATORS VOCAL PERFORMERS
Erin deWard – This is the first time I’ve ever listened to her. Oh holy cow. She doesn’t read this book, she breathes life into the character and I swear as I think of Elaine, it’s Ms. deWard’s voice I hear. She did an amazing job at telling the tell. I also really liked the skill which she and Mr. Levine played out the scenes in this dual interactive narration.
Noah Michael Levine – this man has an amazing skill at accents and changing his voice to become different characters is really and truly awesome. I’m not very experienced in the audiobook world but so far, I’ve yet to run across another narrator with such talent.
The two of them together – yeah, listening to this book made me blush really bad and anyone that knows me finds it hard to believe. BUT listening to them during the intimate moments of the story made me feel like I was peeking into someone’s room and giving a listen. It was REALLY impressive…we’ll just say.
So, if you couldn’t guess it, I’d say get this book…in audio…but be PREPARED for some seriously scorching stuff. Definitely for the 18 and over crowd.
