She can give him what he wants. But will he decide she’s what he needs?

Review –

I found this audio book on the Virtual Library Book site and since I hadn’t experienced many of the books by Maya Banks I decided to “check it out”.

This is number four in the Sweet Series but I don’t think you have to read or listen to them in order because this one stood alone just fine.

Besides the story being  of a beautiful woman, who has loved a certain dark, moody man, most of her life and her trying to get him to love her too, it is a very sexually explicit book. If you are the least bit offended by vivid description of sex acts and extreme kink, this is NOT the book for you.  There is BDSM, group sex(four men to one woman), threesomes,whipping, bondage,very crude language,dp, and more. Girls, if you choose to read or listen to it, you might want to have the air conditioner on high.

Book Description:

Published: August 21, 2012

Pearl Robinson, is a beautiful and smart documentary producer. She’s forty, divorced and single and hasn’t even had a date for over two years. She has given up on love.

When she hears about Alexandre Chevalier, a young French, Internet billionaire, she assumes he’s a geek who wears a hoodie and keeps pet rats in his bedroom. How wrong she is! She bumps into him face to face and is stunned by his charm, beauty and sophistication, and startled by her strong feelings and desire for a man fifteen years her junior. His looks, wealth and worldwide triumph with his social media site, HookedUp, means he can get any woman he chooses, but there is something about Pearl he finds irresistible…

The couple begins a passionate affair and Pearl’s body is awakened in ways she never imagined possible. She is consumed by him and his magical touch. But dark secrets, jealous family members and other external forces are threatening to pull them apart.

Erotic Romance for readers 18+ contains adult situations and strong language – full-length novel (70,000 words – 278 pages). #1 of a trilogy – all books released.

Review –

A pleasant read about  discovering love when it’s the last thing you are looking for. Alexandre is obsessed with Pearl (gave her priceless pearls as a gift after just seeing her a couple of times) and is jealous of her being interested in anyone else but is hurt when she wasn’t honest with him about her job. They get over that hurdle but his sister is trying to break them up. Regardless, he asks Pearl to marry him and she accepts.  End.  While I enjoyed the story I don’t feel invested enough to read any more of the series.




Insatiable (Insatiable #1) by J. D. Hawkins

Book Description:

Published: May 4, 2015


It’s not cocky when you’ve got the goods to back it up.

Lust-maker. Pleasure giver. Fantasy creator. I can blow your mind in five seconds flat — but trust me, you’ll want this to last all night.

There’s not a woman in the city who can resist me. Except one.

Now she’s got a proposition: Seven days. Every position. No strings attached.

She wants to know what she’s been missing.

Who am I to say no?

Review –

Where do I begin?  This book, thankfully short, was sooooo predictable that as I read I just had to shake my head.

Jax, the main male character, is beyond stuck on himself and believes he can have any woman he wants and believes in his heart that he knows everything about what makes a woman tick. However, he comes across Lizzie, who has broken up with her boyfriend of eight years because he is so vanilla in all accepts of his life. She and Jaz have sex and she aks him to teach her how to ***k so that when the right man comes along she’ll be able to keep him. Jax agrees and they have  mind blowing sex for three or four days and he’s falling for her, but denying it and she knows he’s not the kind to settle down so when a good-looking guy in a grocery store hits on her and asks her out, she pools all her new-found confidence and says yes. She tells Jax the next night and he goes home alone and vows to get her back.  End (Thank heavens)

I’m not going to bother reading the next installment because we all know that he will get her back. Boring.
