Publisher's Summary

From the moment Alexei Miles sets eyes on the kickboxing instructor at his new gym, he's enthralled. She's strong and sexy, and he senses something in her that speaks to his deepest desires. Bored of meaningless one-night stands, Alexei vows to find out more about the beautiful badass. He hopes his senses are correct - that her desires will match his own, and that his period of unsatisfying sexual encounters is over.

Zoe Harrison notices the new guy as soon as he walks into the gym - difficult not to, really, given he's a six-feet-plus gorgeous Viking. As well as being attractive, he awakens something deep inside that she'd almost forgotten about. Men that can handle Zoe's busy lifestyle are few and far between. Add to that her very specific sexual appetites and it's little wonder she's been single for so long. Is the Viking about to change all that?

Note: The Beauty and the Badass has been previously released as part of the Dirty Doms boxed set.

    "Cracking short story with great characters."
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this. Unlike most of the BDSM-themed erotic romance I’ve read (or listened to), this is as much about the budding relationship as the steamy scenes. It came across as pretty true-to-life to me. It’s set in the UK, but not in London, with two characters who tell us their story in alternate chapters. Both are hesitant about starting a new relationship due to concern that the other doesn’t share their kinky tastes. I don’t think I’m giving much away by hinting that their anxieties are unfounded...

    The audible audiobook brought it to life, as the narrator has a regional accent (from the Liverpool area, I suspect), and not only gave Alexei and Zoe distinct voices and accents, but showed their personalities.

    My only criticism of her performance is that it seemed a little rushed at times, and I’d have liked a slightly longer pause between sentences.

    Story
    "Better than I was expecting"

    While the ending is really good I was not ready for it to end. This book is short, funny, sexy and great to listen to.

    The characters are surprisingly life like and the story is hot. I'd listen to this again.

    The narration is OK, the male character voices were not believeable but the female voice was. The overall delivery is well done but there are distinct sound shifts where different recording sessions have been joined.

    I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "need more.."

    This was a cute short story with a hot scene as the dessert but i felt like I needed "more". I needed to get a little more invested in the characters for the short to fulfill me. I would love to try a different book by this author as i think I would enjoy a full length book by them. Just felt a little unfulfilled with this. To each their own, though~ I would still recommend checking it out though for the "dessert" alone :)

    Note: I received this book free from Audioboom in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. It in no way affected my opinion.

    Story
    "The Sum of Two Parts"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    Alexa goes to the gym, England; with a friend and spots a kickboxing teacher, Zoe, and is instantly attracted. Zoe has the same reaction. It takes several weeks before they finally talk...both have been disappointed in relationships and have ‘particular’ preferences and have decided being single is better than forcing relationships that don’t work. They are both interested in a certain type of person and sexual relationship...but tread carefully in seeking such a connection.
    After getting to know and like both H and h they finally talk and get together mutually happy.
    A short and at the end of the story hot and rewarding ending for both. I liked the story..not incredible but sometimes these types of stories can twist into an unromantic or cold relationship...not in this one. Worth an i expense price.
    The narrator was ok, I started to get use to her, but she talked really fast...it could have been slowed down for for effect.

    "It’s good"

    I wish it was longer it was just a tease. It was hot and I did like the accent but not enough feeling. The ending was kind of lame tho
    I needed more!!:)

    "Very quick listen, perfect for a commute"

    Interesting enough and short enough to fully grab your attention. Perfect for traffic. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
