Publisher's Summary

Everything was fine until that innocent little rich girl walked into my garage. Since the second I laid my eyes on her, all I've wanted to do is get my dirty hands on her pure body.

There's one minor obstacle standing in my way, but I've got a plan. All I've got to do is claim her, and she'll be mine forever.

Warning: This book is over-the-top, insta-love. There's nothing but steamy scenes, babies trying to be made, and an obsessed bearded alpha hero claiming a virgin who will be his forever. If you want it hot and dirty, this is it!

*whispers* There's a sweet smutty surprise at the end!

as expected

This book is just as the book summary says, so don't expect a deep story line and plot. Don't read if you are triggered by men "falling" in love and want the women to have babies.

Loved this, can't get enough Alexa!!

I read this book about a year ago and was excited to see it on Audible! I love the gruffness of Payne and how it compliments Penelope. The narrators were great especially Max Thomas!
Alexa Riley is one of my favorite authors and I'm so happy she has gotten more books available on Audible! I definitely recommend this book, and you should also check out her others!

Hot, Steamy, and Dirty

OVERALL: I’ve read/listened to a few Alexa Riley books in the past and enjoyed many of them. This one isn’t my favorite, but it’s a good, hot, dirty, quickie!

STORYLINE: Riley does what she does best here -- insta-lust/love with ridiculously descriptive steamy sex scenes and lots of dirty talk. Also, this book is part of a series called “Breeding,” so prepare yourself for a heavy breeding fetish. Again though, these are not surprises based on the title, author, and description of the book. The extra storyline of the father/marriage adds a little drama, but not too much. The “extra” story at the end of Law & Joey is fantastic as well.

CHARACTERS: Paine is the epitome of the over-the-top Alpha male. He wants to claim Penelope… and he does. I love Alpha male characters who are gruff, masculine, and possessive, and I can let a lot of his actions slide because it’s an Alexa Riley book, and I know what I signed up for. However, I cringed when he asked her if she was of age, but then being unsure he could stop if she wasn’t.
Penelope is a character who I think seems a little lost, between the situation with her father and her prearranged marriage, her giving in to Paine makes sense to me.

NARRATION: OK, so if you listen to a lot of romance/erotica audiobooks, you’ll immediately notice the voices, despite their names sounding new. Max Thomas has a husky, deep, sexy-as-hell-voice. Emma Hudson has a lovely voice, and it’s easy to love yourself in the story when she narrates.

Female narrator (not good what were they thinking)😖

Female narrator did not suit the part of the character she was playing in the story. Her voice was irritating and almost stopped listening many times but I enjoy Alexa Riley books. Audible shape up.

Max Thomas (joe Arden) could not save this

The writing was so bad. Truly irredeemable. I love naughty, dirty, raunchy sex. I’m even ok with thin plot and characters if it’s hot But this was just stupid.

The Right Parts

I was hesitant to listen but overall I was pleasantly surprised especially after the reading the reviews. The publisher's description was spot on so not sure why those who listened were surprised by the story or its contents.

It was ALL ALPHA, ALL SEX, ALL CLAIMING & ALL OVER THE TOP. The narrators did a fantastic job breathing life into the words of Alexa Riley.

While Max Thomas sounds like another popular narrator maybe Joe Arden??? And Emma Hudson sounds like another popular narrator maybe Emma Wilder. It's late & bed is calling or I'd confirm. But if your fans of those narrators then you might like this listen.

OTT insta-love

Okay no, just no. This was just WAY too much for me. This was unrealistic insta-love. I mean there has to be a bit of build up! The way the hero propositions the heroine at the beginning was just wrong and maybe some people like it but the smut was just too smutty for me!! and what’s with the no birth control!? The only reason I finished is because I listened to the audiobook and loved the narrators they were the only enjoyable part of the story. Don’t get me wrong I usually like a dirty talking alpha tattooed male but there were just too many other thing not working here to make this any better.

Hot baby making romance

We get 2 good stories. I loved the characters and the story. There’s nothing hotter than an alpha male with baby making on his mind.

🎧 Penelope and Payne 🎧

Straight in, no kissing! 🤷‍♀️
A quick and dirty insta-lust novella with a possessive mechanic and a virginal bride-to-be.
Narration was excellent.
