Summary

Rene is done with men.

After discovering her fiancé cheating just before the wedding, she's determined to make the most of what would have been her honeymoon at a luxury hotel. A little escape is just what she needs to try to put the past behind her. But a chance encounter with a tall, dark, and handsome stranger at the hotel pool leaves her feeling flustered. At first she's put off by his arrogant attitude, but she's quickly swept away by his confident smile and undeniably masculine charm.

Sheikh Tazeem is worth billions, but when the sexy American assumes he's a hotel employee, he doesn't bother to correct her. He came to escape the stress of his everyday life and despite her slightly brazen, untraditional attitude, something about her calls to him. When they happen to meet again, he can't ignore his feelings for the beautiful brunette or their sizzling chemistry.

Fate is determined to bring the strangers together, but when the truth about his identity comes out, Sheikh Tazeem's lies may ultimately lead to heartbreak.

Different

What a laugh! That anyone can be that clumsy is humorous, but she was a little annoying at the start. His stuck up character and her over the top bumbling made for an interesting attraction. Will it last though?

Audiobook Review

I truly did not enjoy this book. The female lead acted like a naive adolescent. The male lead sounded like a robot. I did not admire or find either character interesting. I found nothing about this book that made me want to continue listening. However, I received a free copy of this book for a honest review. I'm sorry I couldn't give it a better review.

Book 1

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed to story. The play between the two was entertaining. I found myself laughing at times. I just hate that I have to keep buying 100 page book at a time. I wonder how many books n the series.

Light and easy

I enjoyed this book. I can't say that I felt the connection between the characters. The Sheikh seemed to spend most of his time disliking her. He seemed only attracted to her physically, grudgingly so. So, when he finally decided her was in love, I didn't feel it.
However, that said, it was an easy and entertaining read. The storyline was interesting, the characters interesting, and the interactions entertaining. The main female character seemed clueless but funny. And, I asked myself if I'd read more from this author, and my answer was yes. It is a fun, light, quick read.

Cute and funny read

Any additional comments?

I thought this was a cute and funny read. Nothing could be more embarrassing than the messes Rene gets herself into. She is a down to earth girl who tells it like it is there isn’t much sugar coating at all when she tells Josh he has a stick stuck up his well you know. No doubt about it he is uptight but Rene has a way of calming him even when he can’t stand her and thinks she is rude. When he finds she doesn’t know who he is he decides not to tell her. They get close and send time together it is really cute how she pulls him out of his shell. Mistakes are made which could be the end of a relationship that neither wanted.

Rose DeMarco I thought did a great job on her narration. She has a pleasant voice and speaks clear. It is easy to understand her and who is talking her male voices are as pleasant as her female voices. There are no background noises or any breaks in the audio. Her tones are even as she goes from excitement to anger. You have no problem telling what emotion each character is feeling. I did think she could have put more in the passionate scenes. I thought she did a good job. I am looking forward to listening to more from her.

Rene was a pleasant surprise just how down to earth she is and how she sticks her foot in her mouth. She is funny and cute. I love the way she pulls people out and is easy to talk with. As for her not knowing he was a Sheikh I find that very believable I myself would never know it. Who keeps up with things like that? It isn’t like we will ever meet one. I thought she handled it all pretty well.

Josh I found it hard to believe a Sheikh would be alone. I am sure they always have body guards and in his case more than most for whom he is. He was distant cold and without a lot of humor which I found believable but he wasn’t arrogant or overly alpha. I liked how he came out of his shell and I loved his humor when he did learn to let go. His brother is adorable I love his humor and his caring ways making sure the girl was with his brother for who he not what he has.

I didn’t care for how the story ended if left me with a lot of questions. After looking I see the love story of these two does go on throughout this series. Which means this is a cliffhanger and I am not fond of them. I thought this book moved pretty fast at times maybe too fast. I did think it has an outstanding plot with little left out. There were some very heated scenes which were good. You can feel the passion between the two. I just didn’t care for the ending

Hot & steamy

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to any bookish friend of mine who loves erotic reads, it would tick all their boxes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sheikh's Tenacious Lover?

Oh my goodness, the pool scene, it was such a unique way to meet a person, especially when that person becomes your lover.

What about Rose DeMarco’s performance did you like?

I loved how Rose gave everyone within the story their own voice, then accent, I felt like the characters came to life whilst listening.

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

I most certainly did listen to this in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

There were so many great scenes in this, with Leslie's story narrated by Rose they seemed to come to life.

cute

the interaction between Renee and Joshua was very cute. Renee seems like a very cute, klutzy women to equal to Joshua's more uptight attitude.

The Sheikh's Tenacious Lover

Okay.... The title in itself does not invite great expectations....a beach read...maybe.. Nothing more.
But but but... What an irritating female. Within the first few minutes I was ready to stop... Decided to give it more time just in case it improved.. But spent the next chapter telling the silly, immature ignorant, annoying woman off....in my head... But even that wasn't entertaining enough to keep me wanting to listen. So have up half way through chapter 3.
I feel like asking for my money back...
Will avoid any books by that author

This story is a bit over the top, even for a fairy tale romance. It's not unpleasant though. Narrator was ok but I've heard better.
