Publisher's Summary

I was 21 when the gypsy read my future:

As punishment for your crimes, you will only love one woman...but she'll never love you back.

I didn't believe a word of it.

Until I met Sofia Romano almost 10 years later.

I fell hard for this woman. Would die for this woman.

But she left me.

Now, years have passed, and Sofia needs a husband. Her father is gone, and her mother is trying to marry her off to a man that can protect their family, protect their company.

She's looking for someone powerful.

Check.

Someone rich.

Check.

Someone handsome.

Double check.

Now, it's my chance to have the only woman I've ever loved...and I'll make sure she feels the same way.

I have a lifetime to make that happen.

I DON’T KNOW WHYYYYYY

I have EVERY AUDIOBOOK by P Sky and love them so much I listen to all of them at least twice a year. I have appreciated the narration that has been next level in every series. I never want to begrudge anyone a job but Lia was not right for this book. Her narration is very over the top in Wife. I have books that she has read and I loved but not this one. I will most likely return this one because I won’t listen to it again and I don’t keep books that are a one time listen. I would have love Muffy N or Elana W reading gripping story. Michael F is always awesome and I love him but I wish authors would take this review into consideration when choosing narrators. In my humble opinion this was a good book that could have been great like all of Penelope’s if there was a different female narrator. My apologizes if I have offended anyone but I but I love referring book to my friends and this one I can’t not recommend. PS PLEASE FINISH THE LINGERIE SERIES. IM DYING FOR THE NEXT BOOKS!!!!

Romantic Genius

Penelope sky always brings her A-game. This story has it all. It's swoon worthy, scintillating, sensuous, and sexy. This story is equivalent to a cup of hot chocolate on a snowy day. It has all the elements for this romantic genre: a feisty, stubborn female lead that's in a constant state of denial, and a handsome, passionate, rich, determined male lead. Michael Ferraiulo's rich, sexy voice brings Hades to life. I'll buy anything he narrates. His versatility in voice selections is phenomenal. And, I think Lia Langola did a fantastic job as Sofia. I was very satisfied with her male voice. She was very expressive. This is very much a cliffhanger that I'm hanging on to finish. I can imagine the the fireworks that will ensue. Penelope Sky is a writer who knows how to tell a story. I am now waiting for The Skull King series to be completed. It's been almost a year that I've been waiting for The Skull Ruler to come out. I love all of her series, but I wish this one would be completed.

The Narrator Maybe??

I'm not sure if it was the actual character or the portrayal of the character but the female in this novel was ABSOLUTELY ANNOYING! I am trying to give Lia Langola the benefit of the doubt and say that it was the actual character and the way she was written...but I just kept waiting for the female chapters to end throughout the entire book. I love Penelope Sky and was not a fan when she started to use Natalie Eaton as her female narrator (I loved when she used Samantha Cooke), so I just stopped buying her audiobooks. I have listed to Lia before and I have liked her before so naturally when I saw her name I got excited again and jumped at the opportunity to use my credit to purchase this book, but was disappointed all over again. I really can't be sure if it's just that this character was just THAT annoying or if Lia just annoyingly/over-performed her...either way this was my least favorite of her female characters out of all her female leads. Sorry, but maybe you can figure out whether it's the character or the narrator...enter at your own risk!

A THRILLING START, A STEAMY CENTER & A CLIFFY END

I love love love Penelope Sky’s stories, I’ve got just about all of her audiobooks released and I cannot contain my excitement when a new book of hers is release.. however, I do get fed-up being drip-fed these very addictive stories. So, even though I’ve had this book in my library since it’s release date, I’ve resisted listening to it because I wanted to hear the Betrothed series from start to finish in one sitting. And my plan was working well until yesterday!! when I finally caved and started listening to it.. and now I’m utterly, completely and annoyingly hooked.

Hooked into a push ‘n pull sexy story about Sofia, a strong young woman who, on witnessing her parent’s dysfunctional abusive marriage, absolutely wants nothing to do with love.. not even when a handsome, sexy Kingpin Drug Dealer sweeps her off her feet. Hades rates 11 out of 10 for his masterful (and plentiful) bedroom skills, kills to protect her and offers her the ultimate commitment.. but Hades has always been a ‘no strings’ Player and now he’s met his match. So he treads carefully.. but how can he convince Sofia to lower those impenetrable walls.. or maybe the Gypsy Teller was right all those years ago when she read his cards which promised heartache.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely.. and I’m quickly writing this review as books 2 and 3 in the series are being downloaded because they’re that good, that addictive, that emotionally compelling and that well-written paced and weaved. The chemistry is undeniable, the sex is plentiful, the characters have depth and the passion purrs along nicely. Awesome narration too. But I wish wish wish they were just released as trilogies instead of going on and on over 4, 5 or 6 books (4 for this couple).. or, as with some of her previous series, Audible never quite gives us the last few books in the series before starting a brand new one. But sigh, I love Penelope’s work and, as a fan, I guess I’ll just have to patiently wait after each cliffhanger ending, ponder the next one’s release date, pray its imminent and hit play the minute it’s released.

Strong female lead

I really enjoyed this audiobook and can’t wait to start book 2. Great story and the narrator’s were great. You really can’t go wrong with a Penelope Sky book. I would definitely recommend this one.
