Summary

Jessica's best friend, Hilary, has had several run-ins with Liam, a sexy Dom from Stronghold who is good friends with Jessica's boyfriends, Justin and Chris. While Hilary finds him attractive, and he's just as attracted to her, she's not sure that the BDSM scene is for her, and he's not sure he wants to invest time in a newbie to the scene. Liam's been looking for a relationship for a while, but he finds that a lot of subs want more bondage and punishment than he's interested in. Is Hilary what he's been looking for? And will she find the courage to let them try?

Meanwhile, Jessica's family is less than supportive as she struggles to come to terms with the reality of having two boyfriends who share her. Justin and Chris want to take their relationship to the next level, but how can she when her parents are avoiding her because of that relationship?

The third installment in the Venus Rising Quartet.

great story

This is a stunningly dark compelling story. It is written so well that you get dragged into the intrigue straight away and it doesnt let you go. The characters are so well written it adds to the believability of this thrilling read.
Loved it! Cant wait to read the next book.
Highly recommended.

Fantastic series

This series is seriously hot. It not only looks into the BDSM lifestyle but also the emotional side of such a relationship. Great characters with tons of chemistry. Great narration.

Such a great series

What made the experience of listening to Venus Desiring the most enjoyable?

As with other audible books its a great way to revisit favourite books and characters

What other book might you compare Venus Desiring to, and why?

Its easy to say it but the other 3 books in the Venus series - all worth a read (or listen) though probably best to do them in order ...

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The aftermath of Jessica and Hilary getting very, very drunk was just brilliant!!

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

The absolute focus, care & love of Justin and Chris when it comes to Jessica

Any additional comments?

When you've finished enjoying the Venus quartet I thoroughly recommend moving onto the sequel in the shape of the Stronghold series

Love this series

I can't say enough good things about this series. I am loving it so much. Yes there is a lot of sexy times but it doesn't overwhelm the storyline at all. The storyline is great and very well developed. The characters are all very personable and you can't help but empathize with them. I can't wait to listen to the final book in the series and see how everything works out for everyone.

I am happy to say that Brooke's narration improved greatly between this book and the last. I enjoyed her performance a lot more. It felt a lot more polished and professional. There were still a few little hiccups along the way but nothing that detracted from the story too much. I look forward to seeing how her performance improves in the last book if the series as well.

Getting Better

I liked how Liam and Hillary were perfect for each other: neither liked ropes or pain, just dominance and submission. With each interaction, they were just so cute together! Meanwhile, there's trouble in paradise with Jessica's family and their take on her dating two men at the same time. What's the big deal anyway? It was pretty sh`tty of them to freeze her out, while running their mouths off to everyone else. I couldn't believe the audacity of the jerk at the party, how arrogant he was to disrespect Jessica like that. Hopefully they'll all get their HEAs in the next one. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Story is great never veering one book to the next!

This Author is amazing she keeps the story moving forward not only for Jessica and her men but now also for Hilary and her situation that is unfolding. I am eager to see where both women end up in the relationships they are forming. The narrator is still going great and is easy to listen to. #AudioBookObsession

Super Enjoyable!!

I read the first two books in this series, and was fortunate to be able to get the audible for #3 in this fabulous series. The narration was perfection - so much fun to have this "delivered" in a hands-free, entertaining manner!!

Continuation from Book 2

This is the third book in the Venus Rising quartet which focused a bit Moreno a couple introduced in book 2, Liam and Hillary. Don’t fret though- we still see Jessica, Chris and Justin’s relationship growth and the struggles they face. I can imagine this is what a real life thruple may experience from family or society as a whole. Great narration as usual!

Sexy continuation

The story of Jessica and the guys continues as battles the lack of acceptance from other. Still fun and hot with other stories from supporting couples. Enjoyed the narrator as always.

This book continues the story of Jessica and her men and their struggles. However we meet some new characters that bring their own storyline in. This book is fun and ever so sexy. Loved the narration Brooke did a great job.

Venus Desiing is the third book in the Venus Rising quartet. Focusing more on Hillary and Liam we see more of their relationship starting to bloom. Although we still see Jessica, Chris and Justin’s struggles and relationship growth and their ups and downs of thrupledom. I like how this quartet intermingles the stories of two sets of friends and their relationships.

Great Continuation

I really enjoy this series. We get to see Jessica, Chris, and Justin settling into their lives and telling friends and family about their unconventional relationship. I like that we got to see different types of reactions and that they felt real. We also get Hilary and Liam. Hilary is just starting to discover what she's interested in and opening her mind. It was interesting to see these two very different relationships. I can't wait for the next book to see how everything turns out.

Brooke Pillifant's narration really good. She's clear and easy to listen to.
