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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Great Love Story, with good build up"

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was a good, hot, steamy story and great build up for the characters.

    When Phe meets Nico, there is an automatic, but guarded attraction. Not only is Nico Phe's boss, but also quite a bit older that she is.

    Nico has been hurt in past, and was not ready to find love, but couldn't help himself when meeting Phe.

    As the story progresses, with the other characters involved, including Nico's father and grand mother, of course, misunderstandings ensue, resulting in mistrust and anger. (altho, if one would stop talking for 2 minutes, they would find out what was actually going on :) ).

    Over all, very good performances from Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross and good story of love conquering all.

    Story
    "Hot, hot, hot!"

    Decadent Dreams is a steamy romance with lots of sexual tension and intrigue. The plot will leave you guessing and stunned towards the end when the villain is revealed. It is very easy to fall in love with all the characters in this story. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross do an exceptional job putting a voice to all of the characters. I would love to listen to a continuation of the story where Gio finds himself in love.

    "Very Good All The Way Around!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Decadent Dreams to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the dual narrators really give the story perspective.


    Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?

    I liked them both, they were believable, charming, sweet and not a bit fake.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the dual narrators. They gave the story so much character. While I thought I knew what would happen to the main characters, there was always something new in every chapter!

    "Sexy and sweet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if they like romance/erotic stories I would 100% recommend


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was more then just the sex scenes to keep the story going. The whole stoey was good and I just had to know what was going to happen next.


    Have you listened to any of Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I would love to after this


    Any additional comments?

    Overall great book! Most romance/erotic novels give too much sex and not enough of anything else but this has a great balance between the sex scenes and the rest of the story. I loved the book and would love to listen to more by Nicole Garcia!

    Story
    "So much pain and not enough trust."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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-fi e or even paranormal. However I was pleasantly surprised by the story. I could not put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    I won this audiobook off of Nicole Garcia's Facebook page. This is the first book that I've ever listened to her 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.
