This book is incredible. I didn’t look at the summary when I requested it as a review copy and I requested so many books, I don’t remember what the genres were either. I say this all the time in my reviews, that’s how I prefer to go into a book. I want to know the bare minimum.

This book takes you on a roller coaster ride. I didn’t know it was part Erotica at first, so that took me by surprise. It was the first time I listened to an Erotica story that was longer than a couple of hours, so it really had time to flesh things out. Along the way, Chloe takes her fate into her own hands instead of moping and feeling sorry for herself.

The characters in this story are all memorable and in some cases, hilarious. Chloe makes an excellent example of female empowerment in a character without making it seem forced or like it’s going for brownie points, as this type of thing often does. She’s likable and relatable, her emotions and struggle feel real.

This story had me anxious and on the edge of my seat. I was worried for her safety and well-being; wondering how she would get herself out of the hole she was in. I rarely feel so invested in the life of a character in a story.

Overall, the narrator does an incredible job. Early on she says “Furry” instead of fury. It’s hard to spell what she said, but it sure as hell wasn’t fury and it was distracting. There are a couple of times in the audiobook where the audio is doubled up. This is an issue I seem to be noticing more and more with Audible books. At one point, there’s a loud, distracting click at the end of the dialogue before it repeats.

If I haven’t made it clear enough yet, I very much enjoyed this book. This is one steamy thriller you won’t want to miss.
