Wow. Five minutes in, I was already smiling because the situation was so recognizable, being an author myself. That smile returned many times throughout listening to the audiobook version of this story. It was so well written.
'Damned if you do' is about Wendy Dennison, a struggling author who gets the deal of her life: all the success she has ever dreamed of in exchange for her soul. The handsome demon who offers her the deal certainly keeps up his end of the deal, and soon the money is pouring in. But is this what she wanted? Does having all the money and success satisfy all that she craved?
I cannot answer these questions without giving away too much of the story, and that would be a shame because it really is a perfect story. The writing is intelligent, witty, captivating and believable, even in this setting. The ending too is believable and everything I could have wished for.
The narrator Audrey Lusk is amazing, the best I've ever heard. Every character had his own voice, and even the male characters were so believable. And she even dared to moan at the appropriate times, something I often miss with other narrators.
This is definitely a 5* book. I was sorry it was over so soon, though the ending was perfect for the story. All I can do is listen to it again and recommend this book to everyone. It doesn't matter if you've listened to paranormal erotica before or not, just listen to this one. I promise you'll love it.
Wendy was a romance writer sitting in the coffee shop so she could get free wifi and trying to write the next chapter and getting frustrated.. All of a sudden there was an English gentlemen telling her she was a great writer. He also told her what an avid fan. Then he tells her he can give her everything she wants. Wendy always wanted to be an accomplished and wealthy writer. She said in her mind that she would sell her soul. Mister B tells her he will give it all to him if she becomes his slave. At first she thought this guy had lost his mind. She wanted him to prove it he tells her to look at her sales at the moment. She couldn't believe how much her sales had shot up. She decides to trust Mister B she even signed a contract.
Meanwhile Daniel her agent always had a thing for her. Somewhere Mister B had gotten into her head and pushed her for a night with Daniel. The sex is incredible as he dominated her and told her she was his. She then panicked the next morning and she left. Mister B has become more demanding and she felt less and less the way he touched her. Daniel comes to find her he went to her house looking for Gwen/Wendy. Will Daniel and Wendy get together. Will she be able to break the contract with Mister B. Will the video tape destroy her reputation?
The heroine, Wendy Dennison, unhappy with her success as a novelist, reeling from a failed marriage and suffering financial distress, mutters that pledge in the coffee shop where she writes. Predictably the words have no more left her lips when the mysterious Mr.B appears, promising her all the fame and fortunes she seeks. It's a familiar theme but with a twist: the dominance and surrender of a BDSM relationship. I am not a fan of BDSM and certainly not a practitioner, but Lisabet Sarai makes this world accessible to the uninitiated, revealing, most of all, that when all the toys and role playing are stripped away, at it's heart BDSM relationships are about trust and surrender. As usual with her work, there is plenty of sexual heat as well as graphic but tasteful sex and some dubious consent.
But there is the nagging question: would you sell your soul? Maybe you have already but didn't get anything for it.
I liked Wendy. She has to face herself and ask herself the hard questions--the easy way or take responsibility for her actions. Bub is all seven sins and more. When he is thwarted, he has his ways to bring Wendy to his thinking. The sex is hot but Wendy realizes it is not the total sum of what she wants. She puts Bub on notice but he thinks he can control her. Wendy's agent, Daniel, figures prominently in bringing Wendy back from the dark side. He is her source of strength. Wendy's choices may not be the wisest but Daniel is there to guide her when needed.
The story is interesting. Good vs. evil, easy or hard, stay or go. Wendy has to do a lot of soul searching to discover what she wants from life. Somehow, it was never what she thought she wanted. And when the fall comes nothing happens that Wendy expected. I think it turns out much better than what she wanted or expected.
