Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Ali Parker comes a billionaire alpha romance series that is sure to leave you fanning yourself and begging for more.

His wants. His needs. His demands. Your pleasure. You're welcome.

Bethany had one more year of school left, and once again, poverty struck hard. The only option would be to encourage her mother to marry her new boyfriend Kent, a billionaire tycoon in the world of accounting. Mom is more than happy to move the wedding date up, and Bethany's soon-to-be-stepfather is willing to pay for her schooling - on one condition: she works for his firm as an intern throughout the next year.

She agrees without hesitation, but little does she know that Kent's oldest son, Damon, is the CFO. Dark features and a stare that would melt panties, he's everything one might imagine of a billionaire's spoiled alpha son, her new boss. Her billionaire boss plays lots of games and though she hates herself for it, Bethany is more than yearning for the chance to fulfill his needs.

18+ for explicit sexual content, language, and possible violence.

A HOT BUT DISAPPOINTING STORY OF LUST v LOVE

Sadly I'm a little bit torn with this listen.. the premise of the story was good - a hot sexy Alpha Billionaire CEO boss and soon to be step-brother gets tamed by his new Intern/future step-sister all sounded good. But Bethany's constant insecurities and immature behaviour wore me down a bit.. she was an intelligent woman yet all that was going through her head was Damon this.. Damon that.. Damon Damon Damon. And I'm usually ok with 'insta' anything however I just thought Bethany's declaration of love for a man whose emotions were so closed off, promised sex but absolutely no commitments, was a shameless womanizer and after such a short time of brief encounters was all just too unreal. Professionally speaking punching a couple-worker in the face and breaking her nose for a bitchy comment was also pretty unrealistic.. even if the thought crosses your mind.

However, I battled on but I found myself picking more holes in the story.. like there was no discussion of safe sex or contraception before they went skin to skin for their many sexcapades. Bethany manipulated her loving Mom to marry early because of her own need for financial help then hid feelings and lied to her whenever just wasn't a nice character trait. So I didn't really like, and couldn't connect with, Bethany nor could I buy into the story of true love when Damon was being such an ass to her. Damon was all kinds of hot.. a dirty talking sexy alpha who demands (and delivers) a lot when it comes to sex but has commitment issues after his Mom's many infidelities and lies. And there are various secondary characters who are weaved in and out of the storyline to threaten or support the fragile balance of Bethany and Damon's relationship. Parts were well detailed and yet there were gaping gaps in information too.. but the unexpected CLIFFHANGER ending topped my peeves as their story will continue for at least four more books. Told from Bethany's POV by a good narrator.

Worth a credit? Sorry but I'm on the fence with this one.. if the series was boxed sets then maybe yes but then again I think of the heroine's immature actions and I think He'll no. I'm also not emotionally drawn into the story enough to be spending 4 or 5 more credits on it when there are far better stories out there waiting to be heard. But hey we're all different right and just because I didn't fall in love.. you just might.

I CANT WITH THIS BOOK!!

Ok where do I even start!!! First I was under the impression that Joe Arden(the narrator) was giving us the male POV then started listening and saw it was all Bethany's POV so I didn't like that! Second Bethany was annoying as ever, how do you fall in love in a week. Then she was so consumed in Damon it was Damon everything I felt like she was just portrayed as dumb. Now third when the decided to sleep together nobody talked about contraception at all. I just thought it was a terrible portrayal of a smart woman in college trying to do something for herself. I was so disappointed in this read!

I didn't even finish it!!

Boring

Drawn out story with very little substance and no chemistry between the characters. I couldn't even finish this one. Not worth the credit.

ITS DEFINITELY HOT IN HERE

Any additional comments?

My one complaint is that Beth fell in love a bit too fast. Other than that it was a really good sexy listen. It's worth the credit and of course my favorite narrator of all time can make an obituary 🔥🔥🔥🔥. Its an enjoyable read and I say get it now. Is love so powerful that when denied it rears its ugly head and leaves a broken heart in the backlash. I guess you will see if you get this one. Loved it

Hmmm

I don't really like this one.
I like a good Alpha story, but A -holes not so much.
I just dont get it. She seems weak and is quick to surrender to a man who can talk dirty, but for all she knows is a player.
I'm all for Joe Arden to narreate everyting and anything, but there need to be a woman to since its a womans POW.

This sucked. And not in a good way.

Having Joe Arden read this story is like spreading caviar over a Big Mac. Even Joe couldn’t save this crap.

It’s the writing. Or, rather, Ali Parker’s dispassionate phrases and storyline.

RHs are my go-to, and I’m good with lots of steam. Even the step-sibling thing’s okay by me. But this just didn’t work. I don’t care about these characters. Damon isn’t interesting in any way. There’s no connection between Bethany and any of the male characters. I kept thinking was that the characters needed to take a trip to the free clinic.

its okay

Honestly i was very confused throughout most of this book, it was cute story but everything happened so fast. so much happened "in a week of the book that i didn't even want to finish it at one point. Im pretty sure this was all in Bethany's point of view but it was all a males voice which kind of disappointed me.

Eh

Good for a mindless, easy listen.
The dialogue was awful, absolutely cringe-worthy at some parts, but there was some good heat throughout the book.
*Spoilers*
Decent story line in the beginning, but it seemed to wrap itself up fairly quickly.
They got together, overcame their "pasts" and told their families about their relationship without any real challenges or setbacks.
Kind of confusing how there will be more books in this series. What the heck is left to write about?

Is this a joke

why so many good reviews. Can't even finish it. So much bull...t . The characters are a joke. No real feelings or dialog . Don't know what is hot about it. The guy us a whore, the girl a charity case. So cliche. Just looking at the cover I could have guessed. Serves me right..

HOT HOT HOT

This book is scorching hot, Damon truly is an Alpha Male - he's deliciously arrogant & scandalous & sexy and did I say Hot already! Bethany is a good girl with a very naughty side that Damon wasn't expecting, her back story is quite sad she's had a really tough time but with such a loving Mother she's a really strong woman who isn't afraid to stand up for herself. When Bethany & Damon are finally together the sparks really do start to fly - it's steamy, romantic, sassy and saucy and I loved it. The audio just adds to the appeal of this book as its quite hypnotic! If you like good bit of raunchy with a powerful back story and a good mix of characters you'll love this book Ali knocked it out of the park with this one. Well worth the read or in this case the deliciously hypnotizing listen!

Good but a cliffhanger

Nice story, likable characters and interesting storyline. The chemistry between Damon and Beth is steaming hot. I enjoyed it from start to finish, it kept me turning but i am disappointed it's a cliffhanger.

Why is it a male narrator?

Since the entire book is from Bethanys POV I'm wondering why they would choose a male narrator?
He's great! No doubt about it, but it's just odd.
Great story though. Good chemistry between MC.

Very enjoyable

I really enjoyed this stepbrother storyline. I think it sets apart from all of the stepbrother books that I’ve read or listen to as the chemistry and the way the characters have been written. They have a spark between them. A fantastic performance from Joe.

Didn't finish

I think I got to about chapter 12 before I decided that this one wasn't for me. Sadly, I couldn't feel a connection between the characters and the story line wasn't enough to pull me in. I think on this it's a personal preference but the fact she wants to screw her step brother just felt wrong. The narrator did a good job but I just feel the story didn't have enough to keep me listening.

There are better books

Weak storyline (or pretty much none), repetitive plot, boring characters. Kept listening wishing it would get better, but it didn’t. Sex between the main characters is boring too - lacking the spice.
Let’s see if the next book gets any better.

Suspend belief

If you liked 50 Shades of Gray, this is a take-off. Many inaccuracies (poor research) and just not that good. I’m glad I didn’t use a credit to get this one

Don’t think a male narrator was right for this book

I just couldn’t get past the male narrator. While he reads well, his “female “ voice of the main character just grated on me.

But have to say the lead character also annoyed me, there were times I nearly stopped listening because she was so shallow and annoying, but I have this weir thing where I can’t stop before the end , so I went through the whole thing. Can’t say I’d recommend.

Siblings

Not the type of story I would read but other people would love it if into that kind of story
