Vicki/Vixen is an actress, and loves her life, the celebrity and the perks that come with her job as a soap opera star. Her life is an open book: while some may think her calculating I found her refreshing and surprisingly candid and matter of fact about her looks, her life and her desires.
When Dan is sent to write "the story" about the backstage world of the hit soap opera, and his determination to dig has many of the cast members running scared. Not Vicki, however: her lack of secrets and ability to keep men off balanced is the perfect solution to what could become a PR nightmare.
Since Vicki finds Dan particularly attractive, and her go-to offensive move is to seduce, the games begin. With a touch of Marilyn-esque va-voom mixed with the intelligence of a woman who can and will use every asset to her advantage, the sexual tension and interplay with the two characters is delightful and entertaining as the two realize the inevitable: they will be involved, and it will not be professional. Steamy and saucy, with dialogue to die for, this is a winner of a story.
Narration is provided by Sheila Book, with a voice that feels right for the story and does not distract overmuch with her tone or pitch changes for characters. While I would have appreciated some well-placed pauses before character change, this was not overly distracting as the characters are solidly created with distinct personalities that are evident in their words and enhanced with her delivery. At just over 4 hours this is a perfect afternoon's escape listen.
Again, Elaine Raco Chase has delivered a story that is both entertaining and well-researched, with enough steam to actually explain those packages from inmates that were sent to her publisher. Yes - that is part of the introduction to the story, and made me laugh out loud in anticipation.
I received an AudioBook version from the author for purpose of honest review for the Heard Word. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
This was another fantastic story by this author. This will be the third or fourth book of hers that I have read and they just keep getting better. Vikki tries to keep Daniel at arms length by vamping it up as Vixen, she won't allow him to get close because of a secret in her past. All this does is intrigue him and strengthens the chase! What she didn't anticipate was falling in love with him. This was a lovely well written love story. The teasing back and forths between Vikki/Vixen and Daniel had me yelling 'Get on with it!'. But the slow build up made the final get together all the more poignant and believable. This seems to be the authors style, slow build up and a heartstopping finale. I love it!
If you like this author, this is a must. If you haven't read any before - give it a go, you will be richly rewarded.
The more that Vikki keeps Dan at arms lengths the more he is intrigued to find out why, he has never met a girl like her before and the games that she plays is exciting and he soon finds its him that cant keep away.
