    Aside from the narrator's poor attempt to give everyone in the book a southern accent *grinds teeth, y'all*, the stud & the skittish colt do not work for me as a couple.

An audio book tends to lose its worth if it puts the listener to sleep, but the heroine's incessant internal babbling in that "'little girl lost' with a bad accent" voice, just about did me in. dnf - 1* for the format & 3*** for Sebastian = 2**

    I got the sample of the book and it started out great, so I purchased the book. If you like all sex and not much substance, this is the book for you. Although even the sex was not all that. It just didn't have enough depth with the storyline to really interest me.

After I bought many, this was the one I decided to start with. After months of this book disappearing around my house, I was finally able to find it and get down to reading it. The only reason it took so long to read was because of my busy schedule. It was a quick, sexy read despite my lengthy reading time. Spoilers Ahead?: Yes!! Quick Summary: Brandi Sommers bids on a man at an auction, only to please her sister. To her surprise, she gets stuck with security consultant Sebastian Sinclair for an all expenses paid, honeymoon vacation. When the two of them are forced to be together, emotions flutter and drama ensues. Evaluations: This book is sexy and emotional. It definitely has its flaws (it's quite stereotypical) but it's a fast, sexy read. I found that this book kept me interested and I didn't get bored, but I was hoping for some not so stereotypical plot devices. Sadly, I didn't get any. Brandi is quite innocent, has only gone to bed with anyone once (view spoiler)[ She was forced into bed by many men (hide spoiler)] , and does not initially want to have any relation with Sebastian. On the other hand, Sebastian is an expert in the sexy time territory, he's super hot, he runs a successful business, makes lots of money, and has many other tropes that women are looking for in their sexy hero. I'm somewhat glad that this book is not the first in the series (it's 0.5), because it seems far to typical for a romance novel. It gets tiring reading the same pair with just a tiny difference get the same romantic plot and ending. The two characters dislike each other, than one of them develops feelings, and then they get together, but conflict ensues and they break up, only to get back together and have a happy ending. It's typical and boring, but at least Lori Foster's skill of writing makes up for the very typical storyline. Overall, I enjoyed this novel. I got to turn my brain off for a while and enjoy myself. Would I have liked some wicked plot twists? Yes. Nonetheless, it's still a great book. Strengths: This novel is a quick read. Lori Foster does an amazing job at keeping the plot moving forward and not having any holes that makes the reader want to put the book down. All of the characters and plot devices didn't seem out of place either. This book is a great, quick romance read for the avid romance reader. Weaknesses: This book is typical. It's hard to find an atypical romance novel these days, so if you are looking for something out of the ordinary in the romance department, this book is not for you. Score: 3 out of 5. I really enjoyed this book, but it didn't hit the ball out of the park for me. I will definitely read more by Lori Foster, but I'm not grasping for another novel by her immediately. I would recommend this book for romance readers because it's a beautifully written story!! Overall, it's a good book! Lori Foster knows how to write her romance.

Instead, her sister bids - and gives him to the lady as a gift, but Brandi doesn't seem to want anything to do with him. Brandi and Sebastian go on the resort vacation as part of the auction package and while Sebastian is thrilled to be spending time with this incredible woman, Brandi is nervous and insecure about being with Sebastian. A victim of trauma several years earlier, she's hesitant to start anything with the handsome Sebastian because she doesn't want him to think she's incomplete. Sebastian could care less about her hangups, except for his concern for her, he wants her however she is and however he can have her in his life. The two fall in love, but Brandi still believes herself to be unworthy of him and is about to do the noble thing and leave him to a better future without her. Ugh. So, not to be insensitive or anything, but I don't care for stories with this type of heroine. There are plenty out there who have been the victims of rape and trauma and don't have this level of insecurity and feeling of being a victim. At the beginning Brandi tells herself she's done dwelling on the past after 6 years, but she continues through the story not taking what she wants, not believing she can have what she wants and waiting for things to happen to her. She continues in the belief that because she was raped she is an incomplete woman. I get that this is a potential outcome of such an event, but I prefer to read about romantic heroines who take an active part in changing their lives. Even at the end, after so much healing she does with Sebastian, she still waits for him to come to her and believes she doesn't deserve him. I can only wonder why she isn't still in obviously needed therapy, especially since it's obvious that she still suffers from PTSD. Now Sebastian was pretty damn near perfect - he's kind, patient, sensitive and does everything he can to convince Brandi that she is a sexy and complete woman. One thing I found somewhat disappointing here is that, after Sebastian learns of Brandi's rape and her sexual issues because of it, he starts out slow and seduces her gently. They build up the tension between them to where Brandi is willing to have sex with him. We get a detailed scene of their foreplay and then....start a new chapter with them waking up together the next morning and them remembering the sex of the night before. Evidently, the author decided to build it all up and then cheat us of their actual scene together...the one in which Brandi decides to trust Sebastian into actual sex...this would be a huge moment in their story together. And for some reason the author decided the reader didn't need to be a part of it? It made no sense. If the entire thing is about them developing feelings enough so that Brandi can heal and trust Sebastian enough for sex, then why cut that out? It was disappointing.

    When Brandi spots Sebastian on stage during a bachelor auction, she can't take her eyes off of him. He's just so...big and overwhelming. There's no doubt that he immediately he piques her interest, but the most Brandi plans to do is just look...or so she thinks. Unfortunately for Brandi, her sister, Shayla, picks up on the vibes between Sebastian and Brandi and decides to take matters into her own hands by "buying" Sebastian as a birthday gift for her little sister. In addition to receiving When Brandi spots Sebastian on stage during a bachelor auction, she can't take her eyes off of him. He's just so...big and overwhelming. There's no doubt that he immediately he piques her interest, but the most Brandi plans to do is just look...or so she thinks. Unfortunately for Brandi, her sister, Shayla, picks up on the vibes between Sebastian and Brandi and decides to take matters into her own hands by "buying" Sebastian as a birthday gift for her little sister. In addition to receiving Sebastian, Brandi also gets to spend the next five days alone with him on a romantic getaway. At first, she's unsure and hesitant, but after a little lot of coaxing from her "present" Sebastian, she agrees to go away with him. Sebastian knew he wanted Brandi from the moment he spotted her, and he has a week to make her realize she wants him too. But Brandi's holding on to past demons, making their relationship both complicated and interesting, to say the least. For the next five days, the pair explore both each other and their fantasies. When their time is up, will the couple go back to their respective worlds, or can they get past their differences and hold on to what they shared during their fantasy vacation? The concept behind Fantasy is one I've come across before, but Foster adds a twist that puts a new spin on things, freshening up the plot. I'm torn, because while I don't want to give away said twist, there is a possibility that it won't bode well with some readers. That being said, I strongly suggest you read other reviews that reveal the twist, and then decide for yourself if it's your cup of tea. Moving on -- Sebastian was the ideal hero; the perfect mix of dominant alpha male and sensitive protector. I love it when the men I read have a the best of both worlds when it comes to personalities. Don't get me wrong, Brandi was well-rounded as well. For someone so doe-eyed and naive, she sure knew how to put Sebastian in his place when necessary. I personally love plot lines where the hero and heroine are "stuck" somewhere alone together, so reading about Brandi and Sebastian's vacation was like indulging in my very own getaway. There were a few niggling details that did make me wince, however; the first being Foster's constant repetition of Brandi's blue-eyed description. I realize that eyes make a lot of appearances in romance books, but once you've mentioned their color, say, oh, 20x already, it's safe to say readers know what color her eyes are. Also, the argument between Brandi and Sebastian in the end was weak and futile. I'm not giving away anything by saying this, but essentially they were yelling at each other because they both loved one another. I'm sorry, but what exactly is the argument here? Up until then, the story pulled me in and strung me along, so it was only natural to expect a stronger conflict. That being said, I would still recommend this book.

    2.5 actually. I guess prostitution and human trafficking are A-ok as long as it's men, they volunteer, and it's for charity. Reminds me of something a friend came up with to mess with Nigerian scammers - Sophonda Cox and her prostitutes for Jesus.

Reading a bit more into it, and my next impression was "why do you hate your little sister so much?" So ok, the h's slightly older sister has this charity event where she's auctioning off 5 day getaways to Gatlinburg along with a handsome stud. She's apparently decided to go one further and pimp out her little sister - luggage already packed without h's knowledge, flight arranged ASAP, honeymoon suite set aside - and buys the last man of the event for her. It seems spur of the moment at the time, but then not really when the limo whisks them off to the airport. Now, why would I think she hates the little sister? Oh I dunno - little sister hasn't dated ever (you find out why later), little sister has phobia about flying, little sister is not willing to do this. H is typical Foster knuckledragger - mentally stakes his claim without bothering to find out if h even likes men (would have found it amusing if h had actually preferred women but that's not gonna happen). He gets pissy because she's hesitant - decides she's playing a game even though earlier she'd bolted into the street because a couple of guys were hitting on her. Of course, night 2, she has a nightmare, and reveals why she hasn't dated. Her parents took her and sister on a cruise. She got tired and went back to cabin, didn't get door shut, 3 men gang-raped her. Of course, since our H bears the MWOP, it cures everything so she's going at it with him sometime later - him tied up naturally. And within a day or three, apparently she's just fine with him being on top, etc. Only has one more nightmare. All better now I guess. And then they catch a flight home and he's pissy because she's distant, not that he's given her any sign he wants to pursue her after they get back. Then he goes off on a job for a week or was it two, and she's given up on him, figuring he was just giving her what her sister payed for (well, that wasn't quite what she was thinking but that was likely because it never occurred to her to think of him as being a gigolo). He hunts her down, yells at her (and with her past, she doesn't wig out on him?), and they come to an accord. HEA. Gag. I didn't realize this book existed when I read the Visitation series, and I'm grateful, as I do not think I would have been able to stomach reading Shay's book after this - Shay being the big sister of the h.

    Considering this book was written over 12 years ago, it doesn't seem dated at all. The story begins with the female character, Brandi, attending a charity bachelor auction arranged by her sister. She feels an immediate attraction to Sebastian upon seeing him on stage up for grabs. Her sister notices this and bids on him with the explanation that he is a 'birthday present' for Brandi! The bachelor auction includes a five day luxury country retreat for the bidders and their bachelors. Brandi is Considering this book was written over 12 years ago, it doesn't seem dated at all.

Her sister notices this and bids on him with the explanation that he is a 'birthday present' for Brandi! The bachelor auction includes a five day luxury country retreat for the bidders and their bachelors. Brandi is nervous about going, she suffered rape when she was 18 and hasn't been intimate with a man since, and still has nightmares from that time. Sebastian is protector with a chip on his shoulder from growing up poor, he feels the need to protect Brandi and help her move past her difficult past and learn to open up to him. There is no doubt that this book is very sweet and romantic, Sebastian is a really caring guy who treated Brandi with great sensitivity. The issue of rape and Brandi's coping with it was handled well. However I feel that the fact that Brandi went away to a (secluded) country resort with someone who was essentially a stranger and then became intimate with him after only two days was a little unbelievable after what she had suffered. Despite this the conflict with the two characters admitting their feelings for one another was really well written and in the end this was a really romantic book to read.

    For me, this just didn't hit the spot. It's a little bit more emotionally dramatic Lori Foster than I am use to. Maybe I wasn't in a happy or neutral place while reading this because I found that I often had to put it down and revert to another happy or smutty alternative.

I found myself day dreaming back to the Lori Foster who brought us "Good with His Hands" origanally from the Bad Boys in Black Tie Anthology. Oh, now that was my kind of story. I'm starting to think of Lori Foster as a bit of a Romance-writing-Oprah, wholesome and predictable but sometimes a wee bit scandalous (in an informative way). She even has spin-off authors like Oprah has Drs. Phil and Oz. I digress. The hero in this story was amazing, as we expect from Lori Foster. The biggest thing for me was ther barriers the heroine has to overcome. I just couldn't go to my happy place in this story and it really caught me off guard coming from Lori Foster.

    I enjoy Lori Foster for her fast pace, snappy dialogue, and her characters. While this was a fun enough, and fast, read, it lacked some of the sparkle and draw of Lori Foster at her best. I believe this is one of her early books (and it shows), so it's probably best that this book be left to Lori Foster's fans, and those just getting to know her start with one of her better books, such as Say No to Joe? or Causing Havoc.

    I couldn't finish this book. I am ok with the set up, thought it would be really cute but the female in this book seems so fake. There was so much internal thought that I skipped whole paragraphs. The conversation seems so strained and unnatural. This book lacks a rhythm or a cadence that would lull you into their world. Maybe the editor could have fixed this because I have read a couple of Lori Fosters books and they were way better than this.

    It was ok. I found that there could have been a great potential for passion but cold water doused it every time Brandi became timid again. Sebastian was sweet, but I was tired of hearing him say "you can trust me" and "It's up to you" etc. By the time I got to the end when he did get to make a move I didn't wanna read it. Not as good as the last one I read of hers (when you dare) only the second novel I have read from this author, I will try her again...

    A bit different. The tenderness that Sebastian Sinclair deals with Brandi's issues is very touching. However, he is just a bit too perfect. And she's a bit too ready to get over her issues as well. But still fun.

    As Foster explains in her intro, this is a fantasy with a near-perfect guy. If you're looking to break up a bunch of heavy academic reading (like I was) it's a wonderful diversion. Thought about giving it four stars but several times it faded out when they got to the sex (boo!) so three it is.

    Great story but the narrator... OMG... Some people just should not attempt a southern accent... It became annoying after awhile so I had to quickly finish the book.

    This was ok. The characters were a little over the top with their personalities, which made it hard to really like them. And it was an erotic romance, but just when the author built up to a point, she summarized the rest. Either be an erotic romance or don't, but don't shy away from the "too much" stigma.

    Ugh!!! This needs a big huge trigger warning on it!!! This is not a book about fantasy; it’s a book about the lingering trauma experienced by a woman who was gang raped as an 18 year old virgin. The hero is a perfect man who helps her learn to have sex, but there is NOTHING sexy about this book.

    Normally I rate a majority of the romance books that I read by my favorite authors as a 3-star. This one, however, jumped out at me. I was drawn into the characters and the story quickly and really enjoyed the story. As most romance novels, it has the normal predictability, but I liked it. :)
