Publisher's Summary

Nico

My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the roller-coaster of emotions that flood over me when I'm near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It's the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She's not only my assistant, but she's half my age. She gets under my skin and irritates the shit out of me, yet one smile, one laugh, and I'm melting into a puddle at her feet. Falling in love with her is a bad idea, a very bad idea, because she just may be the one person who breaks my heart for good this time.

Phoenix

Nico is my boss. He's demanding, bitter, brooding, and a downright bully at times. But, all that doesn't deter me from him at all. I can see the kindness and compassion in his eyes. I know the secret he's keeping from everyone and why he's so guarded with his heart. I don't care about his secret, nor do I care that he's twice my age. What matters is the undeniable attraction we feel for each other. If only he can just let go of the past and see what's right in front of him.

Author's note: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

    "Excellent narration."

    Great storyline, brilliant choice of narrators. They capture the essence and personalities of the characters so well. I was crying with laughter listening to the “Fluffy” scene. Highly recommended.

    "you outdid yourself nicole"

    I have listened to alot of Nicoles books. And i must say that this one is her best book ever. The intrigue. the chemistry the longing. its all there in this book.
    Kai and Wen is one of the most amazing narrator duo. they really make the book flow. and make it all come to life.
    Niko is really all the Things i love in a book boyfriend. he is handsome big strong(abit of an ass) bitter and still trying to get over the loss of his wife Who turnes out to not be all that amazing. i love it when they come of as an ass to beginn with. That he is not showing of all these amazing talents from the beginning. That we get to know him with the story and get to discover all the parts that make us fall in love with yet another amazing bookboyfriend.
    Phe is amazing. She is strong independent. stubbern. funny and really smart. She is not afraid to tell Nico off.And say when he is out of line. Nicole really made a fantastic main caracter in phoenix, and as much as i love to read about a amazing man and his struggle to find love. i have found that to find a female caracter that i wish was my friend is just as importent. nicole made that with this book. now i cant wait to get the nest book in this series. so Nicole will you hurry up and write the Next book for me please.. with suger on to write...

    "So incredibly good!"

    This book. That is all I have to say! To begin with, I really didn't know what to expect. Nicole Garcia always writes books that entertain me, so I went in and knew it was going to be fun. But to my surprise, it didn't only entertain me, but it included so many different feels and twists that I could not stop listening to it! To start with, forbidden love...Nico is Phoenix's boss, and if that isn't bad enough, he is significantly older than she is. I love this premise, you always end up routing for them. But that isn't all this book has to keep you enthralled! There is suspense, danger, murder, business deals, overcoming a past, sadness, dealing with dementia...I cannot tell you how good this book is. The character development, the attention to detail and the seamless intertwining of story plots is incredible. I don't want to get caught up in a summary of the book, but if you want to disappear into a book, this one is for you. Come and meet Nico and Phe, along with Gio, Josh, Derrick and Nico's family(love his dad and grandmother!) and you will no doubt fall in love like I did.

    Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross give a stellar performance in the narration of this book. This team can provide every emotion and feel necessary to pull you into the story, and make you feel like you are actually watching it in your mind.

    "Everything I want in a romance book 💕💕"

    Nico lost his wife 3 year's ago and is still feeling the effects of the loss & confliction over choices she made during their marriage.As a result Nico is a insomniac workaholic with a short fuse. When Nicco's business partner and bestfriend of the last 30 year's Giovanni hires a new assist for him he meets his match in Phoenix.
    Phoenix is a good hearted sassy little spitfire with sex appeal. Never afraid to throw out sarcastic witty banter. Phoenix is driving Nico crazy in more than one way lol. Nico's attraction to Phoenix in combination with her ability to put him in his place makes her like no other woman he's met before. When these two fall for each other, they fall hard. This doesn't mean they won't face obstacles that could destroy them though.

    Filled with great supporting characters, humor, and plenty of heart this beautiful Italian family is hard not to fall in love with.
    The drama, suspense, action, and sexy heated bedroom scenes made one very entertaining listen. I also loved the way Nicole wrapped everything up at the end.
    Kai & Wenn did an amazing job!! These two definitely fall into my favorite narrators category. Both of them give such great performances you forget their reading a book. I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest review. I'm glad I had the pleasure of listening. I highly recommend spending the credit. After listening to a few Nicole Garcia book's I think this is her best work yet.

    "Second review becuase Audible removed the first."

    I won this audiobook off of Nicole Garcia's Facebook page.

    My favorite character has to be Giovanni. He is a type of character that gives comic relief however he is also the one that is the go-to person when an issue occurs. Gio understands both sides to what is happening between Phoenix and Domenico. He never flat-out took sides however he did try to be the peacemaker when it came to the fights that was going on between Phoenix and Domenico.

    When I first received this book the title Decadent Dreams seemed a bit off to me. I thought it was going to be kind of kinky and also maybe a bit sci-fie or even paranormal. However I was pleasantly surprised by the story. I could not put it down.

    This is the first book that I've ever listened to Nicole Garcia and I have to say that this will not be the last. The way that she writes is amazing. My interest was totally focused on trying to figure out what what happened with Nico and Phoenix next.

    I have to say that Nico was going through a lot throughout this entire book. I understand that he has been lied to and hurt in the past but Nico seems to be the type of man who chooses to lash out verses two talk about what is going on. I did not like the way he treated Phoenix throughout the entire book. He ran hot and cold throughout the entire book. I just wanted him to make a decision and stick with it. I understand that his guard has always been up but Nana, Gio, and his father all seen in Phoenix what Nico could not, she is not his ex-wife Karen.

    I also like the twist in the story. I did not see that coming at all and I really enjoy that. I will pick up another Nicole Garcia book and I cannot wait to see what she does with other characters. However I need more Gio in my life. Also I need to figure out what is going to happen with Josh and Derek.

    "Pleasantly surprised"

    First, I have to say that I'm brand new to this genre. I usually listen to mysteries, thrillers, horror and comedy. But I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. And for the longest time while listening to it, I couldn't figure out if it was a romance novel with some awesome sex scenes, or an erotic novel with a really great plot.

    Now I guess I see that "romance" novels have come a long way since when I was a young girl and there was a lot less graphic writing. Is this the new genre for romance novels? Or have erotic books just come a long way in terms of giving us story and characters we care about, but also a lot of hot, sexy stuff thrown in to keep things moving?

    And these two narrators - Kai Kennicott , Wen Ross. Holy cow. What a sexy couple. When the book first started, I thought the man's voice was so sexy, I wanted to hear him talk dirty a little. Well hell if I didn't get my wish before very long! Prior to hearing this book, I thought that Scott Brick was the sexiest male narrator I'd ever heard. But look out, Scott Brick. Wen Ross is here, and he's bad ass. And sexy as a mother f^**er.

    And the two of these narrators together can make the room so hot that your iced tea with start to boil. I'm thrilled to have discovered a writer an/or genre that got a great story and great sex scenes without being all one or all the other. I was bored with Sandra Brown books that were all romance, and bored with 100% erotica books that were just one f*** scene after another with no substance or plot.

    Yeah, I'm hooked.

    "Decadent perfection"

    I really really enjoy listening to this book.
    Nico is a great man and I love how he starts as a "grizzly bear" and then turns into a "teddy bear" thanks to Phe, his character is great also there were some times that I wanted to shake him and make him see some reason.

    Phoenix is awesome she is a strong women with a great personality and the way she copes with Nico is great.

    The secondary characters are so great and make this book awesome the way they relate with each other just make the story better.

    This book is also full of many emotions that will keep you laughing, frustrated, in awe, swooning and jumping with joy.

    The narrators are AMAZING they deserve more than 5 stars because they make listening to this book a great experience they portrayed every character perfect.

    This book was on point. Kai and Wen did an amazing job. I couldn't stop listening. It was a nonstop Rollercoaster of emotions. At the beginning, I didn't really like Nico but he quickly grew on me (especially after seeing him with his grandmother and father). I loved Phoenix from the beginning. This book was steamy and very enjoyable.

    "Wen Ross is my new favorite."

    I just finished listening to Decadent Dreams by Nicole Garcia. There were things I liked and some things I didn't. I didn't like Phe. She is the reason for 3 stars. Her narration was good, it was just her character. I found her to be immature, whiney, and annoying. On the flip side was Nico. I liked Nico although I couldn't see what he saw in Phe. And Wen Ross narrating was just dreamy. I could listen to him read the phone book.
    I would definitely read another book by Nicole Garcia. I'm actually hoping there will be a story with Derek and Josh. Also, Gio's story will make a interesting read.

    "decadent indeed"

    Talk about being burned and never recover. Nico is such a jerk, but a sweet jerk with potential for redemption. At this time I cannot add him to my book boyfriends list, too many 'oops, my bad, so sorry' acts. But I could add Gio or Josh or even Derek LOL I hope Ms. Garcia will give us their stories too.
    Loved Phi, she is such a firecracker, small with big mouth and doesn't take BS from anybody, but love is powerful and in the end it is the force that gives her the HEA with Nico. Great story, a mix of sweet, suspense, LOL moments and hot scenes. Loved the overall feeling this book left me with, content.
    Loved Ms. Kennicott's performance, so natural and easy on the ear. I loved Mr. Ross' various voices and passion, but not convincing enough on some of the hot scenes. If the same passion would be applied there as in the rest of the book, it would get a 5 stars from me.
