Summary

Mia Lauren is a single, 21-year old working in a West Hollywood art store who dreams of one day becoming a fashion designer. When an unexpected offer arises to work at Enthrall, L.A.'s premier fetish club for the wealthy, Mia accepts. It's a salary beyond her wildest imagination. Mia becomes the secretary to the club's assistant director, blond and broody Richard Booth. Richard is not only one of L.A.'s most beautiful and wealthiest men, he is also the club's senior dominant. Mia is both drawn and terrified when he reveals flashes of his white-hot passion, threatening an unbound pleasure like no other. She knows her attraction may be her undoing, but the spellbinding feelings render her powerless to resist his advances. What Mia cannot know is that Enthrall's dashing director, 30-year-old Cameron Cole, who is also the club's psychiatrist, has lured Mia to save his best friend and patient Richard from his obsession with thrill seeking. Cameron masterfully sets up sexy scenarios to ensure the collision of Richard and Mia, hoping that love will save him. However, despite Cameron's noble intentions, he also finds himself enticed by Mia's haunting innocence. Passion and pleasure stir, forming a dangerous love triangle. This is the world of the forbidden. This is the embrace of Enthrall.

Beautiful and “SPOILER ALERT”

I can never understand why people read about what a story is suppose to be about. Then when it’s in this genre is exactly what it says it’s going to be and sometimes even has a warning if these themes bother you don’t buy this book. They get on the reviews and proceed to rip the story apart.
First of all this is a fantasy story. It is FICTION. However yes, club or no club there is a bdsm lifestyle. If you’re going to go around saying that it’s abuse without trying to understand how IT IS NOT THAT AT ALL. Then perhaps these types of stories are not for you and you shouldn’t leave reviews.

The narrator should probably work on changing voices a little better. It was hard tho figure out who was talking in a few places. Other wise nice clear understandable voice. Which is very important too.

I would like to point out that while Cameron did manipulate the situation to get Mia in the building so to speak. Mia herself initiated the relationship with Richard after her first contact.

I love how the relationships developed and how bdsm help Richard rather than him doing it because he was mentally ill. I think Mia agreed with her eyes open. Finding her home and her guys . There is a beautiful love story wrapped in a sexual adventure wrapped in yet another layer of story, Mia’s other relationships and finding out that her father is alive. He’s also being a jerk.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

More than a 50 shadish book

As you are lead through innocent Mia's journey to work at Enthrall, you quickly see that there is a much bigger story than what's on the surface. I very much enjoyed the psychological aspect of this book and look forward to where it can go in Enthrall Her.

The narration was good but there were many times that there was no pause between characters switching and I was confused as to who was saying what. I feel like there is room to grow there.

Did not gain my interest.... or like the narrator.

Struggled to finish. Had a very difficult time connecting with the leading lady. Not sure if it is the narrator or the character development. The men in the story kept me interested and instilled a need to finish. Like Cole as an Alpha Dom.

A captivating story that will blow you away!

Enthrall was amazing and totally sucked me in! It was definitely not what I was expecting in the best way possible!
Twenty-one year old Mia Lauren gets employed as secretary to senior dominant, Richard Booth at Enthrall. She is instantly attracted to her new boss and his air of confidence, handsome good looks, and domineering ways. Mia is a strong woman but young, innocent, and naïve. She is quick to make friends at the club with her amiable personality and even earns the attention of some clients. Richard thinks she is not cut out for the job and decides to fire her, however with the help of the club psychiatrist, Cameron Cole and a friends suggestion, she takes drastic measures to get her job back. Cameron Cole has his own air of confidence, sexiness, and intensity. Mia is constantly being thrown into situations with him and in turn making Richard angry.
It is a constant, wild and mysterious ride throughout the book with some hot as hell scenes! I can't wait to find out more!! A definite must read!!!
However, really needed a male voice for Richard and Cameron!

Enthrall 1 of 8

Enthrall Bk 1

Mia Lauren is just getting by working 2 jobs in West Hollywood. She is given the opportunity to work as a secretary to the Asst. Director, Richard Booth at Enthrall, LA’s fetish club for more than both her jobs combined.
Richard is an adrenaline junkie and is emotionally broken. His BFF is Cameron Cole a psychiatrist and Enthrall’s director. Cole manipulates people and situations with noble intentions but wasn’t counting on Mia’s positive attitude and innocence to interrupt his life.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s fast paced and keeps you guessing on what is going to happen next. The one thing I must compliment Ms Vanessa Fewings on is her ability to through the title into the story line. I’ve read books where the author picks a title and it doesn’t make sense to me with regards to the story line.

Abra Neville does a fantastic job narrating the story line and bringing the characters to life.

Mildly Entertaining

The narrator was great!!

The story..... well I found the female character too naive to be 21 years old. I can buy in to the fact that she is a V but the her doe-in-the-headlights approach to EVERYTHING was annoying. Most of the time the story just trudged on .... even in the end... when I was expecting a climax to make me want to read the next book... it just fell flat. However, I try to give ALL authors of series 2 shots so I’ll read the next book too just to see if the series picks up.

HOT!!

Good story. If you are looking for Erotica with a plot, this is it. The narrator was very good and kept my attention for the entire book. I will admit, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this story. I thought this story would be another Fifty Shades of Grey knockoff. Although there are some similarities, this story is actually well written and engaging. I listened to the book in 3 days and I want to start Enthrall Her right away.

The love triangle that is developing between Richard, Mia, and Cameron is going to make for great reading. They each have their own demons that they are living with and trying to work through which makes them all interesting characters. Even the supporting characters Mistress Lotte, Penny, and Mistress Scarlet are well written. Of course the sex scenes are smoking HOT, but the story around those scenes is good and worth listening to. Well worth a credit :)

A Breathtaking Story of True Passion

Where does Enthrall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The audiobook of Enthrall delivered a top notch performance of a genuinely moving novel. I enjoyed every minute.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Enthrall?

When Richard takes Mia to visit a Buddhist temple in Los Angeles. The moment demonstrates the balance the author pulls off between the physical and the psychological.

What does Abra Neville bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

There's a subtly and range to Abra Neville that goes beyond the expected competent reading of text. I really felt as though Mia was sharing her story directly with me. Abra Neville made the experience intimate and worth recommending. Mia came alive. Pure and simple.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The time spent in Napa Valley made me realize fully that this story wasn't just another erotic romance. It was an emotional, arousing journey.

Any additional comments?

The discovery of the audiobook of Enthrall was rewarding, and I'm thrilled that the author continues the story in additional novels. In addition, from what I've read online, Vanessa Fewings has novellas of this dynamic world in the works to add to the trilogy already available. What a pleasure! :)

Waste of my time

This was horrible. Let me begin with the lead female characters voice. I guess it was supposed to be shy, innocent, and naive. I trie to get over it but stop several times to take a break from the voice. Then if that wasn’t bad enough the story line was a mess. I only finish tho book because I began and I can’t get that time back it’s just it was horrible the storyline was not believable it was a me just a mess mess so good luck if you are going to read this book you’re gonna need it

Has potential but narration meh

I wanted so much to keep listening to this book but the narration killed it. No difference between main character voice and other characters which made it somewhat difficult to follow at times. Main character a bit frustrating too. I think I’d prefer to read this book rather than listen.
