Summary

"A compelling love story with real emotion...and the right amount of fantasy." (Joey W. Hill, award-winning author and recipient of the RT Book Reviews Career Achievement Award)

Everyone knows Jonathan Brond as the playboy congressman. They don't know
he's hiding a second life - one he only shares with select women.  

Christiana is tired of trying to stay afloat, at school, at home, and with her socialite best friend. She's desperate for something new, something different. 

They shouldn't be together. 

They shouldn't have ever met. 

He'd be crazy to give in to his desire for her. She'd be crazy to accept his indecent offer - a proposition her best friend would kill for.  

They are one step away from a scandal that could bring both their worlds down, but some temptations are too great to refuse.

Light BDSM

This book has light bdsm in it. I wouldn’t call it one of the better bdsm book it’s not so true to the lifestyle, I would say. And it is very elongated

I quite enjoyed this audiobook

I think the narrator did a great job with this story. She did the male pov/voice good aswell.

I love a forbidden love story and I liked the plot as well.

Breathe of fresh air

I loved how Elizabeth has written these characters, especially the leading lady. She is so strong but still submissive. Great storyline and fantastic narration from Anastasia.

Excellent example of a good erotic romance

Would you listen to Lovely again? Why?

Yes. It's an engaging story with interesting and plausible characters, events and dialogue

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that it was primarily a romance story in which an older man helps a younger woman realise who and what she truly is

Which character – as performed by Anastasia Watley – was your favourite?

Christiana

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

If I could have arranged my day appropriately, quite possibly!

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed reading this as an e-book and enjoyed it just as much as an audiobook. The quality of the storytelling is excellent, the way the characters feel seems very plausible, and the love-making scenes are exciting but not seedy. In a fairer world, this would have been published before Fifty Shades of Grey, and been just as successful.

Good story! Narrator volume up and down.

Agree with previous comments about volume changes when trying to seem more intense or dramatic; especially difficult on Bluetooth in the car.

Awesome story line

Grabbed my attention from beginning to end. Can’t wait to listen to more. I recommend this audiobook. Narrator was great as well.

Sultry, Sexy, Awakening

Anastasia Watley provides a grand voice to the characters in Elizabeth SaFleur’s ‘Elite: Doms of Washington’ novel.

This was my first read/listen to both author and narrator, and it was, indeed, a pleasure.

So naughty, to be listening to this story with earbuds in, and crowds of people around me, on my cruise ship and the beaches we visited.

Will definitely be adding both author and narrator to my MUST READ list!

Beautifully read

The story was hot and steamy with a plot.
The narration was excellent. I'm not a fan of audibles due to the voices of the narrator's do not fit the picture in my head. Anastasia Watley is the exception.

Just Not For Me

Narrator did a great job with a male voice. Story just went downhill for me as the book went on. I just didn’t not feel the connection between the characters, and it had nothing to do with age. I wouldn’t recommend paying full price.

Fun quick read

Little bit of intrigue, sass, angst, and drama. Quick, dirty, read. Narration was good. First time with this author and I’m not sure I love reading in detail about BDSM, it can get boring rather than sexy with the waiting an anticipation, but I like reading the many levels of a D/s relationship.

Excellent series - hated to reach the end!

I just discovered author Elizabeth SaFleur and narrator Anastasia Watley - what excellent writing and totally engaging performance!
I am so disappointed that none of this author’s other books i can find are available as audiobooks.
The description of BDSM practices and the community standards is so well presented - if you think this level of darkness is not for you, this series will change your mind
The character development in each book totally reeled me in - each person has an intriguing story and clearly presented motivation.

I think Elite and Untouchable were my favorites - I loved the evolution of the relationships between Christianne and Jonathan, and then Carson and London. Again in the last book, Lucky, Samantha and Derrick had a very compelling emotional journey. The 3rd book has Marco and Ella and I liked them but did not find their story to draw me in as much. Still good, though, as a solid romance novel

These books are worth audible credits and to my joy - there are no cliffhangers!
Please bring more Audio books Elizabeth!

Elite

Boy can Elizabeth SaFleur write a BDSM scene! That takes great skill and many books lack that. I enjoyed the story but felt like something was missing between the characters. Other that I did like the story and recommend.
I liked the narration. I struggled at first but got into it. I did not care for her male characters voices.
