Summary

Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X is a master of the art of control. With a single glance she can cut you down to nothing or make you feel like a king.

But there is only one man who can claim her body - and her soul.

Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for a different path, X has never known anything or anyone else - until now....

Confusing storyline, frustrating characters

it seemed to have so much potential in the beginning but i found myself getting annoyed with the punchy short sentenced style of writing and the characters were really Unlikeable. I won't be continuing with the sequels

Wanting

One cannot read without inserting one's self. The ending leaves questions, so one is surely set to read on. Great cliff hanger ending, and trigger for MORE!

It’s pretty good

3/5 stars. I’m a bit on the fence about this book. Parts were intriguing and kinky, which I liked, but this book is also very frustrating and aggravating because of the plot around the main character.

The writing is above-average for characters and story development.

The sexy times are hot, hot, hot.

The narration is good.

Note that this is a cliffhanger.

Love can be a twisted thing...

This story gripped me in the beginning and even toward the end, as I groaned and cursed at X's choices. I can guarantee there are some angry reviews here about how she made the choices that some women would consider "weak" and I can see why. Even so, I look forward to the next book because I know X will gain strength and that Logan will help her do it. All of these men in her life have added something to her and assisted her with finding herself while also confusing her by making her think and realize that she doesn't know herself or them. I was a tad frustrated with watching her indecisiveness at times but I am sure I will be pleased as this saga progresses and she finds herself again. I look forward to continuing the series and seeing what happens. Also, as always I love Summer's performance. She has the perfect, ladylikevoice, while still being able to do the voice of a man without making me cringe and feel like laughing (many women voice actors seem to struggle with the male counterpart's voices). All in all, it was worth my time and I wouldn't be able to recommend it yet but I have a feeling that once I finish the series, I will definitely want to recommend it to others.

Emotionally painful

Wow, any book that can make the reader/listener physically feel the emotional pain of a character, is brilliantly written. Thirty minutes after completing the first book of the trilogy and my abs are still clenched and aching from the empathy I am continuing to feel. In my personal experience, there is no more vicious pain, for this woman, then the knowledge that the man you love is not ,and will not ever be, faithful to you.
At this point, in the story, I cannot understand Madame X's decision to turn her back on a real chance for happiness, to return to the hell she knows. Gosh I hope this story turns a corner and Madame X proves to me that this emotional pain I continue to feel, is going to change to joy and sighs of relief. ]
If you can't handle reading about the darker sides of life, this is not for you. For me? on to part 2.

Great storyline

Would you listen to Madame X again? Why?

Yes, I loved the flow of the story. Even though most of it took place in one location, the imagery of her world was excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

X, because she was sexy as hell, and I loved all her layers

Have you listened to any of Summer Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, a great many. I think she brings every book I've heard her in, to life.I am a fan.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when she kept going back to her master, after finding happiness somewhere else.

Any additional comments?

I was thrown off by the point of voice when I first started to read. I almost put it down. It was my love for Summer Robert's reading style in combination with the trust I had for Jasinda's writing style that kept me reading. I'm so glad I did.

Did not want the story to end.

Would you listen to Madame X again? Why?

Yes I would listen again as I know I missed some of the clues and small details that made this story so interesting.

I can't think of any book that I have ever read that I would compare this to in any meaningful way. In my mind, the story is unique.
