Summary

There are worse things a girl can do to get a boost up the career ladder.

Alice Brown has just landed her dream job as property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It’s only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it will provide her with the vital experience she needs to progress in her chosen career.

However, her dream job soon threatens to become a nightmare when she discovers her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Her shock is exacerbated when Jeremy, far from being embarrassed or apologetic about what happened, manipulates the situation until somehow, she’s the one in the wrong. He and his best friend Ethan Hayes, the head of security at Davenport Manor, give her an ultimatum. Faced with the possibility of losing her job and endangering her future prospects, Alice reluctantly agrees to their indecent proposal.

When the dust settles, Alice comes to the conclusion that playing their kinky games isn’t such a bad thing, after all. But what happens when she thinks she’s falling for both men?

Am excellent listen

This is definitely not my usual genre, however on the advice of a friend I decided to give it a go and I'm glad I did. The writing was inventive with a plot that is both exciting and heartfelt. The narration is excellent with clearly defined voices for each character. Overall a very high quality production in all aspects.

So hot you may just melt!

This book is so full of sexy amazingness that I'm surprised I didn't spontaneously combust!! The characters had so much chemistry and the storyline was fantastic. I love that the female MC was plus sized. Us plus sized girls need good lovin' too! I will definitely be looking up more books by this author.

Frankie did a good job narrating this book. While her make voices may not have been perfect she did put a lot of effort into giving each character their own voice. Overall I did enjoy her performance.

Stately Pleasures

The narration by Frankie Holland is truly the only thing that kept me into the book. Frankie helped make the characters more believable and the story more real. It started out ok, but the majority of the book sounds like a 13 year olds dirty fantasies more so than an adults kink. The repetition of the works juices and spunk had me really ready to stop the book.

Very saucy!

Usually not my style of erotica but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it!
The characters are original and believable and the story is well narrated.
It certainly made mowing the lawn in straight lines tricky!!

Fun and flirty...Loved this book.

Great story and interesting characters to carry out the plot. I didn't want to stop listening. I like the setup and flow of the each situation. A must read for erotica fans. I hope for more stories like this.

Light ménage romp

I received this audible for a fair and unbiased review. It was a delicious light ménage romp. There was no deep storyline, no angst, but I liked it.
Frankie Holland did a good job with the narration in the storytelling.

Steamy!

I honestly don't typically listen to this type of book, but the narrators playful and soothing tone kept me enthralled, while anticipating what the next challenge would bring. Definitely steamy!

A Great Romantic Menage

Alice is a strong and independant woman who is seeking a job. When her boss proposes a limited opportunity, Alice takes it. Ethan and Jeremy give her so much more than just hot, steamy sexual exploration. I loved the interaction and chemistry between the threesome. Full of fun, steam, and even laughter, this menage won my heart and I found myself routing for them. I really enjoyed Alice being a heavier woman and not your typical beauty. Ethan and Jeremy are so supportive and actually give her so much self-confidence. This is a wonderful love story that I could not stop reading.

Frankie Holland brought the three main characters to life with his narration. Mr. Holland is able to narrate both make and female voices well. I found the narration easy to follow and enjoyable.

Finally a heroine I can identify with!

It's refreshing to listen to a book with a BBW heroine for a change - we big gals deserve love too! I wasn't too keen on the way the guys got Alice involved with them - she's clearly more forgiving than I am. :) But overall it was a great book and I enjoyed listening to it. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer #AuralFixation

Stately Pleasures

I found this book to be fun and lighthearted with some BDSM. The characters had exciting sexual chemistry. However I did not get a feeling for them as people outside of the sexual encounters.

Setting of a stately mansion was appealing.

This was a gentle erotic menage romance with light BDSM elements. The setting of a stately mansion was appealing. It would have been nice to learn more about Jeremy and Ethan---about their friendship and about Jeremy’s family background and ownership of the mansion.

Some of the plot was pretty obvious; it was obvious, from the beginning that Jeremy’s compromising situation was a setup. Some of the sexual scenes were more erotic than others.

The narration was fine and fit the immaturity of the female character.

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

Great Read

Stately Pleasures was a good read by Lucy Felthouse. Alice had finally landed her dream job but things don't exactly go off as planned. She finds her boss in a compromising position but he turns things on Alice. I can't wait to read more by Lucy Felthouse.

cute and hot

the story was very cute and very very hot the both male characters work kind of kinky and the female character was very interesting though you had some limited information about the male characters the story was very fun and very cute it's not an overwhelming story it's very light and it's a lot about s*x

Alice is arousing

I was gifted this interesting audio book free of charge & in return I'm offering my honest review of Stately Pleasures by Lucy Felthouse . "What did he expect from her , did he want her to hold a spider" ? As it turns out it wasn't a spider they wanted held . I love the innocence that Alice expressed at various time , the author has written a very enjoyable book , lots of sex with an subtle touch of humour . Alice definitely enjoyed her work & other 'games' as did Jeremy & Ethan in fulfilling the kinky & unusual contract work . I have listened to & enjoyed other audio books by Ms Felthouse & this book keeps that tradition going . The story moves at a good pace & the narration by Frankie Holland is excellent . Ms Holland is a narrator who really does bring this story to live .. I highly recommend this audio book .
