✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Elizabeth by Lexy Timms

 

Elizabeth
For His Pleasure, Book 1
By: Lexy Timms
Narrated by: Molly Secours

"A call girl is simply someone who hates poverty more than she hates sin."

Work. That's all I do.

After my best friend betrayed me, that's all I can do. I'm trying to nail a massive contract. One that'll put my company ahead of the rest.

But, of course, he's a traditionalist.

My assistant says I need a fiancée. Someone that makes me look good in a commitment. Except, I don't date. And I don't intend to start.

So a fake fiancée it is.

What I didn't expect were her legs. Or her poise. Or her perfection.

And now? I can't keep my eyes off her.

I have to stay focused, but her scent is alluring. I have to stay away, because her pull is too strong. I know she comes with bonuses. I know she's bought and paid for. She's only short-term.

But this amazing fake fiancée is the perfect woman for my life.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Elizabeth is kind of a darker, grittier version of Pretty Woman. Plus, there's the added element of suspense, and this story has an air of tension about it. There are enough differences that I wasn't bothered by the comparison, and I did get invested in the story, so it's not really a drawback for me. What did turn out to be a drawback for me was the MMC. Phillip irritated me for quite a bit of the book. I think maybe he was supposed to in order to highlight how good Elizabeth is in situations you wouldn't expect from a high-paid escort. So, irritated or not, it worked for the storyline. I'll admit that I'm still not sold on Phillip, but I'll reserve harsh judgment until at least the next part of the story. Speaking of, this one does end in a cliffhanger, and it revolves around the suspense in this romantic suspense.
Molly Secours gives voice to the characters, and her performance is very good. This was my first time listening to this narrator, and I enjoyed the listen. She does a good job with the tension of the story - both the suspense and the attraction between Elizabeth and Phillip. I'll definitely listen to her again.
As for the story, I'm invested in Elizabeth's journey, so I'll be looking forward to seeing how things go, especially after the last few paragraphs of this one.
