There's a fine line between love... and obsession.
Promising law student Elizabeth Watson struggled her entire life to claw out of her dirt-poor background. And now the thing she's dreamed of, an associate position at her law firm, is within reach. As long as she keeps up her grades, makes law review. And stays out of trouble. But trouble is just what walks in the door one scorching hot summer day.
When Gabriel Storm crashes into Elizabeth's life, she wants nothing to do with him. After all, he's on the opposing side of a business deal her law firm represents. If she's seen with him, she can kiss her career goodbye. But she can't stay away from the billionaire who put the "B" in bad boy, and soon she's embroiled in an affair hot enough to make every ounce of her being burn. She should walk away, hell, she should run away, but she can't. Because all she cares about is his kiss, his touch, and the way she feels when she's in his arms. Even if to be with him means the ruin of everything else.

The worst thing about this book is the American narrator trying and failing to sound British! I don't understand why an American female and British mail narrators weren't used as this is totally spoil the book for me and I couldn't take it seriously. Being British, we really don't talk like that. The storyline is good if not a little frustrating. There is very little gap left between each chapter and sometimes I find the narration spoken to quickly.
"PULLS YOU IN FROM CHAPTER 1"
From chapter 1, I was hooked. I thought this would be a typical erotic/romance book but it was so much more. The characters were incredibly likable, the story was captivating and the writing was great. The only bad thing for me is I WANT THE NEXT BOOK RIGHT NOW! I'll be patiently waiting for more books in the series. Highly Recommended!!!
"Enjoyed it a lot!!!"
Great audible book... Really enjoyed it. Highly recommend this series. Hope they get book three soon to audible.
"WOW! What a story!"
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the continuation of this book. The sound effects were big additions which made it more real - like you were right there in that story. Good job!
"Couldn't stop listening"
I've read Storm Damages in the kindle edition and just HAD to listen to it once I found out it was in audio book. The experience was awesome. Not only is Elizabeth & Gabriel's roller-coaster love story stellar, but the narrator's interpretation of the characters held me spellbound. I especially loved the sound effects. Like if Gabriel was talking to Elizabeth on the phone, her would sound a bit distant and crackly. If they were at a cocktail party, there were sounds of clinking glasses and socializing in the background. I'd never heard such details in an audio book before and found they set the mood and put me deeply in the story.
I loved Gabriel's character. The narrator really captured his arrogance and hidden vulnerability.
It was a pleasure to listen to Lovato's narration. Hearing the characters voiced just put a smile on my face while I was listening.
"cliff hanger- hot- great read"
I like the performance of the narrator. Gave depth to each character. The story has a great flow and the love scenes hot not a 10 but a good 7 .
He was great I did not realize he was only one person . I was sure two people were reading this book . He get a 10 in my book.
Yes . I would have if I had not fallen asleep. Had to redo last 6 chapters.
Hated the sound effects took away from the book .
"Production was awesome!"
Best production ever. I enjoyed the sound effects....not sure I have ever heard a book done so well....Fact if there was it never ever registered with me like this. The narrator was SUPERB!!. Story overall good, hope next book is as good or even better.
The narration is great, but the sound effects take away from the story, rather than enhance.
Such a great story! Anthony did a fantastic job narrating, and I was lost in the story!!
"Not worth it."
Narrator was awful!! Not only was voice terrible, tried to read it so quickly. Won't bother re-listening! Barely tolerated first time!
"BAD, REALLY REALLY BAD"
It's not often that I can't finish a book but.... I suddenly thought "what am I doing listening to this crap when there's so many good books out there waiting to be heard" and I just didn't want to waste any more of my time on it. The sound effects were intermittent and distracting, Gabriel Storm's voice was more like Prince Charles and not a sexy young handsome guy (as per the cover) and his character was just awful. The writing was very weak i.e. his Father had a 'brain' stroke - well is there any other type! So I skipped to the last chapter to see how it ends and what do you know.... it's a CLIFFHANGER - well sorry but I don't care what happens and won't be getting book 2.
Worth a credit? No, not in this lifetime and even if it was free I wouldn't want it so sadly I'll be asking for my credit back on this one.
