Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Lucy Leroux - a Readers' Favorite Romance - Sizzle finalist.

For almost five years, Alex has had one obsession. Her name is Elynn.

Alex Hanas couldn't believe after so many years as a widower, his father was getting remarried. To make matters worse, the American gold digger had a kid - a daughter named Elynn. After months of avoiding it, Alex goes to brunch with every intention of giving his father's new family the deep freeze. But he can't pull it off with Elynn's anxious green-grey eyes locked on him.

That was the day his life changed. 

Four years later, Alex is as close to Elynn as a stepbrother can be. But that's not enough for him. He wants more...and he's done waiting.

Enjoyable!

Making Her His is basically an erotic stepbrother romance with a good plot and character development. I enjoyed the premises of the story. The start was a bit slow, eventually, it picked up. I was absorbed in Alex and Elynn's relationship.

Ainslie Caswell's narration was nice, her pace at times was a bit quick. All-around, I was satisfied with this audiobook and look forward to listening to the second book in the Singular Obsession series.

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

Making her feel.

Loved the book it was great listening to. Alex loved Elynn for a long time but did nothing about it until she was of age, plus he wanted to take it slow with her, after she had a bad experience she had with a boy from school. It was steamy with some twists and turns also emotions that ran high.
The narrator was clearly spoken.
Thank you for allowing me to review.

I received this audible for free.

Hot step brother

I loved this book. It’s had a very slow burn start and then races along t9 burn everything in its path. The characters and the plot were both well thought out and planned which made the story flow very well. Next thing you know your running late because time just flies with this book. Fabulous narration just puts it over the edge

Great story

Although this is not the first book by this author that I have read, it is the first that I have listened to. This author never fails to entertain me with her stories and this one kept me pulled in until the end. The only thing wrong was the narration, there was to many inconsistencies and choppiness as well as sounds bleeding through from the background.

awesome! 5 star

loved the series, so excited to hear the first book, sometimes you pick up on emotions that can't be felt unless you hear it, this audible version made me realize emotions i overlooked when i first read the book. i understand some are uncomfortable with the step sibling genre but this "step" brother and sister were not raised together or even lived in same house, and the story evolves at a pace that allows reader/listener to understand that it took years for this love story to evolve but that time helped to build characters as well as develop the adult pairing.....great story and awesome audiobook , lucy leroux knows how to keep you interested , each story in this series is seperate yet connected! recommend to anyone who likes to feel emotionally invested!

Great book, a few small issues

I enjoyed listening to this book but there were a few things I need to mention. First of all, at one point the audio starts looping over itself (I didn't keep track of the time of it but I should have, I do remember it was still in the first 1/4 of the book or so). There were some other audio issues too. There was a lot of white noise (or maybe background noise?) in some parts, made even more noticeable by the shift from good audio quality to that crackling noise in the background while the narrator spoke.

Apart from the audio issues, something felt disjointed within the story and I am having a difficult time identifying what it is. I think part of it was the way the narrator spoke his lines. The narrator for some reason took to whispering a lot of the lines of both characters and whispering just didn't suit Alex's personality. The narrator would have done him a bit more justice by giving him a more confident and stern tone of voice more often. I understood that he was supposed to be more soft and sweet around Elynn but it just didn't work well with his personality. Elynn was one of the most naive main characters I've heard of in a while; expecting a man to stay celibate for over 4 years is a fool's errand and she was old enough to know that when he told her he'd had one lover a year. That was the other thing: Elynn got angry at him for seemingly stupid stuff before letting him completely off the hook for steamrolling her on bigger issues. I'm not big on jewelry either but starting a fight over someone that loves you trying to show that love in the only way they know how by throwing it back in their face because she's such a big brain with such serious convictions made it feel shallow and immature. On the other hand, he made plans for literally their entire life behind her back without asking her feelings on the matter. He just TOLD her to marry him rather than ask as well as plenty of other situations where he acted first and asked for her opinion later and after Elynn's strong stance on the smaller issues, it felt out of place that she just let some of the bigger problems between them go for so long without addressing them (or didn't address them at all). These encounters made the relationship feel somewhat lacking in intimacy. Part of it might have also been the fact that Alex already knew Elynn's biggest trauma (that was her story to tell and NOT her stepfather's, BY THE WAY) and Alex almost felt like his entire sense of self was based around Elynn from the get-go of this story so they bonded through kinky sex but that was about it. I guess my issue with Alex is that he was the absolute trope of a rich alpha; he had no interesting story, no high aspirations (he was already being given a company by his father), and nothing else to make him stand out from the crowd in terms of personality. All of these things added up to create a puzzle that felt like it was missing a few pieces on the corners to finish it up. Overall, I enjoyed the book but it could have used some fairly straightforward fixes to the audio and changes to the writing to help further enrich the story-line/complexity of Alex's character.

Alex and Elynn

After listening to Calen's Captive, I had to listen to ther first book in the series. A warning for those on the fence, it can be deemed a little taboo. However, I did enjoy the story. I like how the narrator is different in each story to give a slightly different feel.

A Stepbrother Romance!

This was my first Lucy Leroux' book. This is the first book in A Singular Obsession Series, a stepbrother romance. Alex and Elynn's story is intriguing, captivating, and page turner. Alex is protective, supportive, and caring. Elynn is a wonderful and strong woman. They share a strong chemistry. The secondary characters are great. The storyline is fast-paced, sexy, with a little suspense. I love the ending. Ainslie Caswell did a great job with the narration. I love her male voice. I enjoyed it! Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series, Calen's Captive.

Making Her His

I loved this story of Alex and Elynn. There was danger, suspense, a strong alpha male, hot sex, and a sweet love story. Ainslie Caswell did a great job bringing this story to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Filled with danger and lust

This is a wonderful story. It is filled with danger, lust and secrets. Fun and crazy characters. Alexander and Elynn and wonderful together. Even though Elynn is younger (21) it’s hard to remember that. She has always been older in her heart and brain. Once Alex got over hating her. He decided to get to know her and eventually fell For her charm and wit. I enjoyed. Alex because once he made up his mind. He didn’t let anything deter him. They have a crazy journey filled with jealous Ex’s, stalkers, and paparazzi.

I listened to this on audio. The narrator did a good job overall.

Pretty Good

This is a difficult book for me to review. I liked the story for the most part. It is a nice relaxing read, the conflict is at a fair minimum, nothing too intense until the end of the book. This is a love story that branches from step siblings, however, one was grown and gone and one was nearing adulthood when they became family. The narrator was easy to understand, and she applied the correct inflection for each character. However, the majority of the intense conflict is saved for the last hour of the book instead of a build up and resolution. Also, the narrator is excellent, but just not right for this book. I really liked her voice and cadence, but there was TOO much inflection for the scenarios given, and the cadence was just not right for this story. It was so irritating at times that I turned off the book and came back to it later.

All in all a good story, and decent narration, but I would not listen to this book again.
