Summary

Book two in the Venus Rising Quartet following the Venus School of Sex.

At the end of book one, Jessica Swift returned home from the Venus School to find that the two instructors she'd fallen for actually work at the same company as her. The fantasies and desires of her surreal two weeks at the school clash with the reality of wanting two men equally, especially since she'd not even sure if the men she fell for are real.

Justin and Chris are willing to fight for Jessica, to prove to her that she can trust them despite their deception, and to convince her to give them a chance to see if they can turn fantasy into reality.

Will she be forced to choose between them? Even if she doesn't, how can a relationship like that possibly work in real life? What will their friends and family think? Jessica doesn't have any of the answers, but she has a lot of fears to push through in order to find her happily ever after.

This is an erotic romance with graphic descriptions of sexual activity that includes MFM threesome; oral, vaginal, and anal sex; anal play; bondage; BDSM; and some exhibitionism/voyeurism.

Awesome book, so so narration

I love, love, love this series!! I adore the storyline and the subject matter. I really like the discussion on polyamory though I wish it didn't keep referring to it as deviant behavior instead of simply alternative. I really like the characters and that they are dealing with real life problems. Of course this book is also incredibly HOT!! Panty melting hot to be more precise. I advise you take notes cause it's just that good!

As for the narrator she was not as good unfortunately. Her performance was very wooden and choppy. I had to increase the listening speed just to make her tempo bearable. Though she did manage to have some variation between male and female voices and did have moments of enjoyable inflection, too much of her performance just fell flat. I would have loved for this to have been done as a duel narration or at least with a narrator with more experience doing romance novels.

Enjoyable story

This book takes Jessica, Chris and Justin outside the school where they can start to navigate their relationship dynamics. I enjoyed watching it unfold as they all started to admit, at least to themselves, what they really want. Jessica's time at the school gave her confidence and I liked seeing her embrace it. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Brooke Pillifant's narration was well done and easy to follow.

Venus Aspiring

While the setting of Venus Aspiring was very different from The Venus School, it was still a great story. This book was about Justin, Chris and Jessica trying to figure out how they can make a relationship work now that they are back in the real world. I love the chemistry and the dynamics of the three of them. Jessica's friend, Hillary, is in this story more as a connection is starting to form with her and Liam. I love this erotic series and am looking forward to the next book.

Brooke Pillifant did a great job bringing this story to life.

Just where we left off..

I enjoyed how this book started right where the first one left off. Jessica, Chris and Justin discover each other all over again. We as readers follow their relationship through it's growing pains. Realistic questions from friends and family brought depth to this story. I enjoyed that their relationship was not an easy one, not was it widely accepted. It made the characters fight for what they had. It made the triumphs more worthwhile.

Brooke Pillifant did a great job at narrating this story. I do enjoy her ability to easily differentiate the different characters. Ms Pillifant can narrate male and female parts equally well. The only thing with this audiobook is the sudden stops of the audio. It was distracting and not natural.

A different kind of sexy

Going into this book, I had expected to see more of the school like I did in the first but it does not. The school is mentioned throughout the book but sadly, there does not seem to be a return visit for us. Book 2 contains the same characters but shows more of their lives outside of the school and BDSM lifestyle. I enjoyed seeing what happened after the sudden ending of book 1 and cannot wait to see what happens with everyone in the coming books!

As far as the narration goes, I had a hard time connecting with the voice. Brook's tone is enjoyable but her timing was off which caused the story to not flow smoothly. I also think a little more editing to take out some of the noises would benefit this work great.

Venus Aspiring is the second book in the series series and it’s great! The story between the three characters continues to build and grow. It’s straight up delicious!
Brooke Pillifant does a wonderful job creating the narration of the characters.

great story

Book 1 was fantastic. I loved the heat, the chemistry. The school setting was fantastic and added a lot to the overall story. Book 2 changed up the formula a bit too much for me. I still loved the characters and seeing where the story took them but leaving the school lost a little bit for me. I would have loved to see more from the BDSM aspect. I do look forward to seeing more on that for sure!

I had a hard time with the narration on this one. The voice tone was great however the overall experience was impacted by the awkward spacing of the pauses. It did not flow naturally and felt very disconjointed, As a result, I had a hard time staying immersed in the story.
