Publisher's Summary

My Savior...Or My Ruin? 

One night, and my entire life went up in flames. All because of him. Jafar. As my world burned down around me, he offered me a choice. Walk away with nothing but my freedom...or rise to his challenge and win my fortune back. 

I bargained. 

I lost. 

Now Jafar owns me, and even as my mind rails against his rules, my body loves the punishments he deals out when I break them. 

But a gilded cage is still a prison, I’ll do anything to obtain my freedom. 

Even betray the man I’m falling for.

Mediocre

The book is great and the female narrator is great but the male narrators voice is creepy and annoying

Could not stop listening!

Oh my. Hot. Spicy. Damn.

This was everything I needed and more! I could not put this down. I had to finish it as soon as I started. it's an addiction.

I love the introduction to other characters. However I wanted more plot. More Ali. I wanted to see what he would do. Banter between him, Jasmine and Jafar.

I finished this wanting more. I WANT MORE DADDY.

This book reminds me of all the comments of the new Disney Aladdin movie where everyone started to swoon over Jafar. Calling him daddy. And it fitted.

If you wanted Jafar in the movie, you will want him more after listening to this master piece.

Wow...Just, wow...

So, I found Katee Roberts books on a game app called chapters. They were amazing to play but they leave out some details so I like finding the full books and comparing. This full book was so much better. I was enthralled from chapter 1. I love books that get right into the action. I especially liked the audible version of having the book read by a male and a female. Normally, I space out the book with a few chapters a day, but it was so good I listened to the whole book in an 8 hour stretch, only stopping for a quick bite to eat at the middle portion. I highly recommend this book. If you like your men dominant and your heroine fierce you’ll love it. I’m off to purchase the next in the series.

HORRIBLE

There isn't a zero star rating so I had to go with one. All of the reviewers who enjoyed this book, I cannot believe we read the same one. The narration was annoying. The story awful. Sex scenes. Blah. How many twenty something year old virgins go straight into full on BDSM, threesomes. Apparently, I return too many titles so I was forced to finish this one after not being able to return. What a waste.

Sharing - Not Acceptable to me

I was thoroughly enjoying this book until other participants were introduced. That caused me to lose interest in the book. I love erotic books but hate sharing. I do not know what to make of Jafar or Jasmine. I plan to return this book. Not sure if I will move on to the next one. Jack Calihan and Lessa Lamb did a great job with the narration.

Desperate For More

This was a lot better than I expected. I loved the consent in this story. The narration was excellent, both readers did a fantastic job. Highly recommended for fans of consent nonconsent daddy kink fiction.

👎 Male Narrator

I struggled with the entire book and male narration. He sounded like he was reading and and sounded like Lego Batman. Voice did not fit character.

50 shades of grey flash backs

Although I thoroughly enjoyed the concept that the author was going for I personally felt the storyline needed 2 times the work that she put in the sex scenes. It felt like she was trying to compete with 50 shades of grey.

Not for me!

I got this based on the recommendation from Tiktok. I am addicted to romance novels and love dark romance, alpha heros but this book was definitely not for me. There was no actual plot or romance. It was all steam, but zero connection between the characters. I kept wondering do these characters even care about each other. There was zero character development. Also the narration was lackluster Lessa Lambs voice was okay but Jack Calihan as Jafar, i could not get into it. Skip it!

I wish I could delete this...

Delete it off the face of the Earth. It offends me being in my playlist right now. Seriously how can I get this crap out of my audible? I don't even want my money back I just want it off my app.

Good read if you like spice

Kind of regret getting this on audible, I have to listen via headphones many times because it gets pretty detailed and raunchy. Also Jafars voice actor is a bit distracting because it reminds me of Macho Man Randy savage.
