Publisher's Summary

"She's yours now". With those three words, my boss gives me a gift: permission to kidnap and keep the woman I've wanted for years.

Ever since we were teenagers, I've denied my desire for Sofia. Despite her father's involvement in running our cocaine empire, Caesar Hernández has carefully sheltered her from the brutal realities of our world. She's always been far too innocent and pure for me to drag her out of her charmed life and into my depravities. 

But Caesar chose to betray my ruthless boss, Adrián Rodríguez. He'll have to prove his loyalty once again if he doesn't want any harm to come to his beloved daughter. I have her now, and he's well aware of my sadistic proclivities. 

I tried to save her from this, but I can't fight my savage nature when Sofia is in my home and under my command. She'll learn to obey me unquestioningly if she wants to earn any of her freedoms back. Sofia's going to be my good girl, fulfilling all the dark fantasies I've suppressed for years. 

I'll do whatever it takes to keep my pretty hostage. If anyone tries to steal her from me, I'll start a war to protect my most precious possession. 

Sofia is mine, and I'll never let her go.

Whew! Is it hot in here?!?

So this is my first book by Julia Sykes and holy macaroni!! This book was hot!! I love me a book with a strong alpha and boy did this deliver! The story was great and I loved the personality of the characters!! Matteo had me laughing out loud!! His inner monologues were great!! I also felt his pain and really sympathized with both Matteo and Sophia. When they finally come together, explosive doesn’t even describe it!! And the build up, whew!
Now, the performance for the audio was AMAZING!! I have to say that Shannon Gunn’s voice made me melt!! When he gives the intro and then, bam! He has a Spanish accent, then he speaks for Sophia - let me just say, he is super talented. Lidia was great as well, but I could listen to Shannon all day!! Definitely recommend this book!!

Fantastic story and narration

I loved this so much! I thought the narration was perfect and the story was captivating and it wasn’t cliche or predictable. I loved Mateo and Sophia, they each had their own personal demons but together they made each other stronger. Mateo is ruthless in the mafia/cartel world but is also sweet and romantic, a side only Sophia gets from him. It was exciting, steamy and overall a great read/listen.

Love the Narrators!

I’ve read several reviews stating that they didn’t care for the narration. I totally loved the narrators. Especially, Mateo. He was funny and complicated. Very good story! Worth more stars if there were more. Don’t hesitate on this one.

Bad Voice

I could not get more than 10 minutes into this story. I really did not like the narration. His voice really irritated me. I loved the first two in the series and will definitely buy this one on my kindle.

The male voice is perfect for this story

The male voice and character was perfect. He draws you into his world. I doubt this story would have captured my intrigue as much without his voice, so so masculine and sexy. Get this book, listen and enjoy, you will not be sorry.

It’s awful. Don’t waste your credit.

So I totally wasted the credit and my listening time. The narration and plot were both bad. I kept listening in the hopes it wouldwould improve. It did not. My eyes got a work out with the amount of eye rolling being done.

Narration male failed

Okay, so I'm really shocked this book has such a high rating. The fact I wasn't crazy about this one might be because, I listen to most of my books, and this has the worst narration. Its almost so bad I couldn't listen, the male narrator enunciated darn near every word and although I appreciated his passion it significantly slowed down the story and you couldn't appreciate the parts that warranted that type of adrenaline.

The book doesn't have a bunch of action per se, but it does have angst, plot, great characters, and a decent storyline that makes sense. It really must be the narration that ruined it for me because when I really think about it there's nothing else that turns me off about the book. It had some steam/sexy scenes not a bunch, I like a little more but it wasn't horrible😆😘😁 Very light BDSM, spanking, a club.

I like the hero/heroine neither were perfect and they both owned their crap. Without saying too much I can say they had a miscommunication, but it didn't go on forever ......It really wasn't a horrible book just don't download the Audible version.
