Dear A., I am writing to express my gratitude for your gift. There are no sufficient words, but please accept my sincerest thank you. Yours, R.
She writes me back. I didn't expect that. She tells me she's a lover of chicken pizza and video games, a hot sorority girl with the nickname Sloth. She wants to know something about me in return. She says I owe her. This is how she saves my life. She doesn't even know it.
The anonymity is good. She doesn't need to know me, but I need her kindness. We both live our lives: a letter here, a postcard there. For three years, I escape my demons. Then, one day, I'm pulled back in. I resign myself to what I know is coming, until the girl I'm spanking gives her safe word: sloth. And then the lie I'm living starts to unravel.

its very rare that i cant get on with a book. i really tried but was starting to find i was forcing myself too listen to this, books are my escape and for me this was not enjoyable :(
"Maybe it's Just Me"
I'm really at a list for words. Did I just listen to/read the same book as the other reviewers?! After reading the blurb and the reviews from other listeners, I fully expected to be blown off my feet.
Nope. Did not happen.
The performance was okay. The man was "eh" but the female's narration irked my nerves at times. It's hard to truly blame her as most of the problem was with the writing.
The writing. This book was too long and for nothing. Half of the book could have been eliminated as it served absolutely no purpose to the plot. The idea of the book was good it just included a lot of unnecessary pages. I ended up skipping through some chapters for the first 3/4 of the book in an attempt to reach the end. There were a lot of plot holes as well. I just couldn't get with this book. Do yourself a favor and save yourself the credit. If you have Amazon Unlimited (the book is available for free if you have it) then by all means. Otherwise, save your hard earned money.
"What was that"
After reading the reviews, I thought wow this will be a great book. Not so much, It was way too long and I couldn't finish the book. I skipped most of the chapter, it was too difficult to listen to. Please save your credit, its definitely NOT worth it.
"An emotionally gripping tale!"
Sweet mother of all that's holy!!! This was an absolutely amazing book. It will keep you guessing the whole time. Kellan and Cleo's story is a beautiful, heartbreaking, sexy ride! I don't want to spoil anything so I will just say that Sloth is an absolute MUST READ and Sweet baby Jesus - KELLAN!!!
"One of the best books of 2015"
Sloth is the most gut wrenching, heart breaking stories I have ever read. I have read it too many times to count. This version is even more amazing if you can believe that.
Cleo and Kellan and their love story is like none you have ever read before.
Buy it, listen to their story and laugh and cry along with the rest of us!
IT IS SO WORTH IT! Swoon!
This book had me an emotional mess! started slow, but WOW! Unpredictable, suspensefull, LOVED IT!
This story is one of my all time favorites!! It is so different and the writing is incredible!! How the story developed captured my attention when I read it and now that I've listened to it, I fell in love all over again.
If you prefer to not read steamy, sexy reads, then be cautious. Because it is HOT!
My only complaint is that when I read along with some part of Part 3-Chapter 15, the part discussing his brother at the end was omitted. I feel that conversation is CRITICAL to the story. Plus it was in the middle of a paragraph. The part that was deleted began with, "His took, and he was better fast..." to the remainder of the chapter. PLEASE FIX!!
