Summary

CEO of Knight, Inc., Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice.

No one until Sophie Black, that is...From the moment girl-next-door Sophie accepts the job as Lucien Knight's PA, she understands how Alice must have felt when she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Lucien takes her safe, vanilla life away and plunges her head first into a huge dish of fantasy flavours.

Rich, spicy chocolate covered with dark, oozingly lickable sauce? Check. Tutti-frutti with indecently red, glistening cherries on the top? Yes please.Lucien strips away all of Sophie's inhibitions, and when he instructs her to select three new toys, she soon realizes he has more than a game of Monopoly on his mind . . .He's opened the door to a whole new pleasure-packed world without limits, and Sophie is utterly intoxicated. But how far is she willing to go? And what happens when she has to step back into reality again?

Lucien and Sophie's is a story of star-crossed love and forbidden passion, a sexual odyssey that spans the globe and changes both of their lives forever. Let it change yours, too.

A wasted credit

The narrator is probably better suited to children's novels. She has a gravely almost grandma voice. It just put me right out of the mood to hear her talk sexy. The plot was worse, though. I stopped listening to it half way through it and I am not in the least tempted to pick it back up. It sounds like a divorced woman's wet dream the entire way through. A man bringing guilt free pleasure to an unhappy wife pretty much sums it up. He helps here explore her sexuality after a life with a bland cheating husband, the story was predictable, the character depth was attempted but not really there, and the sex parts rival penthouse.

Disappointed

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

More background on characters, there was no depth

Any additional comments?

Story didn't go anywhere, except I'll have an affair and that will show him, boring, too much sex but no romance and no depth. I like to fall in love with the characters before they jump into having affairs, and why?????

Awful narration.

The story would likely be great with a different narrator; this one sounds like a prim governess about 90 years old. Reading sex? No. I just can’t. Listened to about 1 hour, trying to get past the voice/story miss-match. I couldn’t. It set my teeth on edge. I could only picture an old woman, prom and proper, being tortured by having to read this book about raw sex aloud. A lesson for her. I couldn’t follow what she was reading because she sounded so out of place.

I may have to actually read this book, not sure what the author was thinking picking this narrator for this book? Maybe it was meant to be a joke on our ears? lol

Just Didn't Do It For Me.

I found it difficult to connect with these characters which led to be not really caring for them or the outcome. I pushed through, seeking some redemptive qualities, but it just didn't do it for me.

What a find!!!!! OMG!!!!

I can't believe this isn't sweeping around Audible as the best hottest new thing! There are three books in this series so far, the first 2 seem to be about the same people, Sophie and Lucien, and Audible has all 3! If you go to goodreads they have over 14 THOUSAND reviews and this book still has over 4 stars

Let me just say this book was AMAZINGLY good! We sometimes forget that erotica isn't suppose to be just about the actual acts...it's a state of mind, it is a seduction of the brain as much as the body and boy does this book deliver on every front!

Sophie Black is a bored wife...she has been married to her high school boyfriend for about 10 years and has barely anything to show for it. No kids, no pets, she hates her job and recently it's become increasingly more difficult not to notice that her husband is barely speaking to her, and not touching her at all. She decides she needs a change, so when she sees a job posting to be a personal assistant to the owner of Knight Industries, an adult toy and fantasy company, she decides to try for it. From the moment she met Lucien Knight she was swooning...but she is a married a woman so the swooning will have to be put on hold. Lucien is fascinated by the shy Mrs. Black who seems almost virginal...why would an innocent flower want to be around HIS industry day in and day out? She can't even say the word clitoris without blushing scarlet to her roots!

Things get SOOOO good from there and you just don't want to put the ear buds down. I am off to download book 2 because there was a bit of a cliff hanger and I am dying to know what the heck is about to happen!!!

*warning* This is a British writer, and narrator, and there is British slang used. I personally thought I would be turning this book off within 5 minutes because I thought I could never get over the accent and the narrator...but I have to say it grew on me big time and I got over it! But if you can't get over accents don't get this book. If you hate the idea of infidelity don't get this book. And if you think sex scenes should happen behind closed doors and barely written about...DON'T get this book! For all others...ENJOY!!!!

Story Was HOT OMG - Narration questionable

The story was really good and really hot. I would have to agree with other comments the narration was questionable, the voice is a little old for the characters at hand. It took me a couple chapters to get use to her voice but all in all it was good.

The narrator sounds like an elderly British nanny

Story is good but the narrator kills it, her voice just makes some of it cringey.

Knight and Play

I’ll preface this with, this was an audiobook and unfortunately the narrator was not a win for me. This highly effected how much I enjoyed the book. She sounded like an old British nanny and it was just weird for me, as I kept picturing an elder lady in the scenes...😕

I did enjoy the original, to me, storyline. I may consider reading the next book in the series but I fear the damage has already been done.

Book is a cliffhanger and I had to ask my self if I care enough to purchase the next in the series to find out what happens and initial answer was no. We will see if that changes when I have a credit to spare.
