Publisher's Summary

Lincoln Hudson has just been handed the easiest job in the world. Babysit the spoiled son of a conservative senator, keep him out of trouble, and receive a six-figure paycheck. A paycheck he desperately needs. Wyatt’s father claims he needs Linc’s firm hand and discipline. One look at him and Linc agrees. Wyatt needs discipline.

Being the closeted gay son of a family values senator has left Wyatt Edgeworth with a reckless streak and a love of partying that just cost him eight months of his life and might cost his father his re-election. So now, he has a babysitter. A very sexy babysitter.

When Wyatt drunkenly tells Linc he’d make an excellent Daddy, they reach an understanding. Wyatt gets a Daddy and Linc gets a paycheck, then they go their separate ways. For this to work, discretion is key, but with a reporter dogging Wyatt’s every move, that might prove impossible.

Staying together was never an option, but with each passing day, their feelings only grow. Will they risk it all for what’s supposed to be a harmless fling?

Intoxicating is the first book in the Elite Protection Services Series and contains age-gap, Daddy-kink, and BDSM elements complete with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

Warning: This book contains scenes which may trigger some people including self-harm, suicide attempt, past and present physical abuse, and implied past sexual violence.

An incredible start to a wonderful series!

Oh, well! Live and learn, they say! I'm fairly new to the M/M romance genre and I stumble across some daddy kink/BDSM! I was sure I hated the stuff until I was gifted with an audiobook code for Onley James's 'Exasperating (Elite Protection Services Book 3)' and decide to listen to it before realizing what I had! To my surprise, I found myself loving the book then I went crawling to the writer on Facebook to offer a bit of an apology by asking to review the previous two books in the series. Onley starts the Elite Protection Services series with 'Intoxicating', Book 1. She pairs Lincoln Hudson (private security professional with Elite Protection Services) with Wyatt Edgeworth, the spoiled closeted gay son of a conservative senator! Oh, my bleeping goodness! Oh, my bleeping goodness! This was just too awesome for words! If ever there was a guy needing a strong daddy and a really good spanking, it's Wyatt! Brilliantly narrated by Liam DiCosimo, this audiobook is a very good time. I thought for sure I would NEVER read daddy kink and BDSM books! I'm so glad this writer's work slipped past my defenses and won me!

If you have already read Disciplinary Action

then don't bother with this one. While
the names have been changed and some of the plot points, many of the scenes are straight up copy and paste from the other story. This one is a return for me.

So sexy, so passionate and so much love

I read Wyatt & Linc’s story and fell completely in love with them, their journey together & most impressively Onley James writing. She has an amazing talent to pull the reader in. I went on to read all four books in this series and I cannot wait to listen to them too!

Age gap, good story

Wyatt has never felt the love of a parent. He’s never felt seen, heard, valued, or accepted. His dad, a senator up for re-election, hates him...all because he’s gay. After crashing his vehicle while under the influence, he’s put on mandatory house arrest, ankle monitor included. His dad hires a bodyguard to ‘keep him in line’, but little did he know just how much this bodyguard was going to change the trajectory of Wyatt’s life. Lincoln has his own demons, and responsibilities that depend on getting paid for this job, but it doesn’t take him long to see what’s really going on. To make matters worse, both men feel a connection unlike any other. They both have needs that they discover the other just might be able to fill...at least for a little while. Nothing bad could happen, right?

Wyatt’s friend, Charlie, steals the show quite a few times, throughout this book. She is feisty, packs a good punch, and is a lot of fun. She’s also very protective, and just might be the best friend Wyatt could ever ask for. She’s my favorite character in the book, too be honest. I bet she was fun to write.

This is the first audiobook I have listened to, that Liam DiCosimo has narrated. While I did enjoy some of his narration, I did not enjoy the voice he gave Lincoln. It was not pleasant to listen to. I understand LD is new to narrating, and I see great potential in him. I am hoping he will either never use this voice again, or improve upon it. It sounded like someone who probably smoked 3-5 packs of cigarettes a day, and has ruined his throat and vocal chords. That’s the closest description I can think of, and it’s not exactly right. As pleasant as LD’s voice is the rest of the time, I know he can do better.

Liam is the perfect narrator for this book!

This may be a debut novel but you’d never know it!
This is definitely a story I could not stop listening to!


The back and forth snappy dialogue, the hot sex and the protective nature of Lincoln going all Daddy on Wyatt all lead to a perfect story.
Can you tell I loved it!?!
I’m so happy it’s only audiobook one and we get to enjoy being in this universe for awhile.
Liam really brought this book to life! Loved his sexy voice for this story.

Excellent

I've read all of the Elite Protection Services novels and this first one is my favorite. It is just as good in audio as it is reading the actual ebook, maybe more so! The intensity that Liam DiCosimo brought to the table was so well done and I cannot wait to hear what he does with the next books in the series.

A whole experience

I hadn’t read the book before snagging it on audio so I wasn’t prepared for this emotional roller coaster. There were times I had to pause it because my heart was literally aching, & a few stray tears slide down my face. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I got so much more. Politics, A*hole parents, Blazing sex scenes, and MCs that were a lot broken but still very much capable of love.

Checks lots of boxes

This book checks multiple boxes for me bodyguard falls for the person he is designated to protect, Daddy/boy, age gap, light BDSM and political/media difficulties that necessitate keeping a relationship secret. James brings them together in expert fashion. Wyatt is clearly lost but does not come off as an unlikeable brat as many of these types of characters can. Lincoln is strong but again, not a rigid alpha male. Both men have flaws that make them perfect for each other and as the reader I desperately wanted them to get their HEA. Liam DeCosimo is a new narrator/performer for me but he does an excellent job with all these characters. His voice is warm and flexible, he gets all the emotional beats just right and it was a pleasure to listen to him for long periods.

Super sweet

Onley James did a great job with the story. Story was well balanced although kink and more serious issues are part of the story it does not overwhelm the romance part. Was extremely happy Wyatt & Linc got what they wanted and needed. Liam DiCosimo might be new to me but his narration is top class, do love it when the narrator makes the story even more enjoyable.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Good start to the series!

Overall  ~ 4.25 Stars!

Story ~ 4.5 Stars

Narrator ~ 4 Stars

As daddy kink books go, this was a good one. There was a lot of chemistry between Wyatt and Linc and I liked that the two of them were very supportive of each other. My heart broke for Wyatt, the way his poor excuse for his father treated him was horrible and explained why he acted up so much before meeting Linc. And Linc, well, I felt bad that his PTSD was so bad sometimes. I really liked that Wyatt, being so young, actually went and googled what to do to help him when he had one of his episodes. Despite their age difference, I thought they were very well-suited for each other.

This was my first book by Onley James and the first in this series, and as such, it was pretty good, well-written, and engaging and hot and left me wanting more, which is always a good thing. 

While I enjoyed most of the different voices the narrator used and the emotions he conveyed with his voice, I was disappointed by Linc's. It was too raspy, not exactly as sexy as I figured it would be. Still, the performance was good and I have no trouble recommending this audiobook.

Great listen!

Linc takes on the job of “babysitting” Wyatt from Wyatt’s father and thinks that it’ll be easy money babysitting a bratty 22 year old. Although Wyatt comes across as bratty (and really he is a bit of a brat but for good reason as the book explains to us).

Linc is a Daddy...and this is what Wyatt needs. Someone to love and protect him. I love how protective Linc is of Wyatt. With Wyatt I love how even through everything that happened to him, and the way he was originally attempting to cope with what happened to him (and how his father was - I REALLY hate his father!!!). I feel so much for what Wyatt goes through and how he spirals really bad but he also fights and gets through things.

Liam DiCosmio’s narration is great - really brought the characters and the story to life. I need to listen to more audiobooks books by them because I loved it that much. A must listen!

Loved it!!!

I first read book 4 in this series and decided I wanted to read the rest, when I saw book 1 was on audible i was really happy. Linc's voice took me awhile to get use to, at first I thought it was too deep but the more I listened the more the voice fit his character. Wyatt, he broke my heart, everything he'd been through and everything his father was still doing made all my emotions come to the surface. I think the narrator did a fantastic portraying the emotions of each character. Im looking forward to reading books 2 & 3

Love the story, slight miss on the character voice

Wow, what a well written and, at times, hard hitting story. Definitely read for trigger warnings before diving into this book as there area few different things going on with the main characters.
Wyatt can seem like quite the spoiled brat but from the very first chapter, we can understand why he acts as he does to try and survive in the life he's been pushed into. Lincoln takes a moment to adjust to who he thought he would be babysitting and the young man that needs his care and attention. A perfect relationship for them both is born out of need and desire and their attraction and connection is immediate from the moment they meet. There is of course, an adjustment period as they have to live together for six months but an understanding between the two men makes life so much better for each of them.
We have the perfect bad guy who, along with Lincoln, I'd really like to lay out. Onley's character development really brings the readers emotion into the story, engaging with the positive and negative words and events that the characters experience. I was right there with them on the roller-coaster that both MC's go through throughout the book. There are some brilliant side characters that both help and hinder Wyatt and Lincoln, my favourite probably being Charlie, Wyatt's best friend. The things she comes out with had me laughing out loud.
Cannot recommend this book enough and I'm really excited for the next. I loved how the story worked it's way along for both men to grow and experience actual happiness and support.
The narration was really good but was just let down for me with Linc's voice. I think Liam was going for raspy/gritty but it just didn't work well for me and was a little monotone in the delivery for that character. Everyone else was really brought to life, especially Charlie and the Senator. If anything, hearing the Senator's voice made me dislike him even more! I was pulled into the story through Liam's narration and he brought a lot to life, bringing out the hard hitting moments for Wyatt as he struggles to deal with everything going on in his life but is well balanced with how Linc calms him and brings him happiness.

An Intoxicating and Enthralling Romance

Intoxicating is the first book in the Elite Protection Services, a contemporary romance series centered around the bodyguard/client trope. This is my second time reading the book, and I loved it the second time around just as much as the first.

Lincoln Hudson is a gruff, dominant man who’s just retired from the Marines. He’s transitioned into working as a bodyguard on the civilian sector. His first bodyguard job should be pretty easy: he’s babysitting the spoiled son for a conservative Senator. However, not everything is as it seems, and under Wyatt Edgeworth’s snark and sass is a boy desperate for the love and care of a Daddy Dom.

Intoxicating is exactly that: intoxicating. The story pulls at my heartstring and made me melt as Lincoln and Wyatt fell in love. Plus, the sex was hot and kinky with a lot of emotional tenderness mixed in. The plot is fast paced with a lot of funny moments that had me snorting with amusement.

Liam DiCosimo narrated the audiobook. This was my first audiobook that I heard Liam narrate, and I was impressed with vocal range. I loved how gruff he made Lincoln and all the characters felt distinct. There were a few points where I think Liam was so focused on keeping Lincoln’s voice gruff and sexy, that he didn’t infuse enough emotional inflections in it. However, that is a minor critique and one that did not detract from the overall audiobook at all. It was easy to follow along in the book and I quite enjoyed the entire narration and audiobook experience. I will definitely listen to other books Liam DiCosimo narrates and look forward to the rest of the Elite Protection Services series to come out in audio.
