Overall was it entertaining, yes if you enjoy this type of story. If you like this genre of books than this would probably be a fantastic listen. For those of us who skitter around the edges of BDSM in our books, this was a little too much for what I would usually find appealing. Let me start by saying I listen to a wide variety of books, but this is the first time I have listened to a book with this much BDSM and to this depth. Which really in the scheme of things is probably milder than some. I never had any interest in the whole Grey thing. While there is a story, it is basically a story of the h being trained to be a submissive for the H. There is a bit of a love triangle or rather a sex triangle. Is there a HEA, yes. A HEA the H/h are happy with.
There is being an Dom then there is being an a**hole Dom.
Embarrassment, pain, humiliation and self doubt. Personally I definitely do not consider these sexy. Embarrassment for the sake of embarrassment is never sexy. Enjoying someone's fear is never sexy. Humiliation is not a turn on. Constantly causing someone to doubt themselves and ask if they have done something wrong is not a healthy relationship no matter Vanilla, BDSM or whatever. As they say, different strokes for different folks, but there is a limit. And yes some of the sex was very steamy and then some was a definite whoa, wait - hold on there buddy. So be prepared.
She was constantly reminded that she has the right to tell him that she was not comfortable with what he is asking her to do - I don't think she ever said no. No backbone at all. You can be a sub, but you still need to have some self respect.
Sierra Kline does a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice, easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken, good pacing. Good character voices.
Audio quality changes occasionally, volume lowers then goes back to normal repeatedly throughout the series, but it is especially bad in the 4th and 5th book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Alpha Billionaire Romance Series Complete Boxed Set to be better than the print version?
Yes, because the narrator did a good job of capturing the emotions of the characters along with the sensual tone of the series.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked Stacy because she was a bit of a shy woman, yet she had this independent stance about her.
What about Sierra Kline’s performance did you like?
She had a smooth voice, which I think fit very well with the romance element of the story. Her narration drew you into the story and she kept you mesmerized as she detailed the aspects of Henry and Stacy's love story.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Did she dare enter the world of billionaire Henry Lennox?

The first good thing about this book is that unlike so many authors out there jumping on the 50 shades band wagon of success and writing on a subject they don't know, this one either did the research or is involved in the scene - and it shows in a good way.
So while that was good there were issues that dropped my rating down.. Firstly, some of the plot was .... well, rather unlikely. For example, a business full of women with submissive natures, drop dead beauty and the least like nature of playing nice with each other over a boss that hunted them one at a time and used them for one-night-stands.
Then there is the, Michael, characters storyline. Sure, some people are naïve or dumb, but most people would need to be dead drunk and then hit over the head with a shovel before they would not see how stupid it would be do what she does with him. I just couldn't rationalise anyone doing it.
Last issue. While some of the sex scenes are good, they are often way to short and lack description. Honestly some of them last barely more than a sentence or two. Heck, some of the oral scenes will make you think he has the stamina of eager fifteen-year-old boy, who also suffers from premature issues to boot. And this was my worst issue, as if you write erotic fiction I can give some latitude to a weak character or two, or odd subplots etc, but the sex need to be fully realised.
