Description

This complete collection of The Billionaire's Obsession includes: Mine For Tonight, Mine For Now, Mine Forever, Mine Completely

Down-on-her-luck nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely, and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems? Or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants...until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

This is an erotic romance and is not intended for YA listeners. It contains graphic language, explicit sex, and other subjects not appropriate for YA listeners.

A Buff Nerd Meets a Nursing Student in Trouble...

I miss the previous book cover. It was understated elegance. Simon is someone who was so traumatized at 15 years old that he tried never to care about anyone but his family. As a sensitive computer geek as a child, Simon doesn't realize that all of the work he has done to make his body buff and healthy has made him into a very desirable gentleman. Enter Kara, a server at his mother's restaurant and a nursing student in trouble. Simon gives Kara a place to stay and a way to finish school. Kara gives Simon a chance to see the possibility to let himself be vulnerable with a woman again.

Drug stealing thieves at a free clinic that Kara works in, a foolish brother who assumes that Kara is only after Simon's money, and a whole lot of egos make this a really sweet story, and very much worth a credit. It is a nice, complete story, for anyone who wants to feel like they lived vicariously through other people's lives.

I loved the excitement, the descriptions, the characters, the voice of the narrator, and the author.

What about Elizabeth Powers’s performance did you like?

She made this seem story seem so real like I was right there in it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I am in love with this story. I am waiting for the second book to come out and I really hope it does soon and that there is one.

Read it before.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book was a repeat by another author, with different names and basically the same script. These Erotic books are going to have to get more interesting. I mean don't get me wrong I love Erotic books but you can only here the woman orgasm so many times. WE need plots, adventure, seduction. Kill some, stop a bomb from exploding in a third world country, survivors of an airplane crash re-meeting again, Do something for heaven sakes your dominate Billionaires.

Audible as Good as Reading the Actual Book!

What did you love best about The Billionaire's Obsession: The Complete Collection?

I liked that Simon, even though he was a billionaire, was a very insecure and vulnerable man, and that Kara, who had nothing, was a very strong and self-sufficient woman. They both balanced each other out even though they had many ups and downs in their relationship. They helped each other overcome the issues that affected each of them from their pasts to make them a strong and loving couple.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Simon was my favorite because he really developed and grew throughout the book with the help of Kara. His past was full of betrayal which would be debilitating to many people. Because of his feelings for Kara, he bravely worked through those issues to emerge stronger which made him able to commit to a deeper relationship.

What about Elizabeth Powers’s performance did you like?

I loved Elizabeth Power's as the narrator. She lent credence to the emotions that the author was conveying in her story. Ms. Power's voice was also very pleasant to listen to which kept me totally engrossed as she switched between Simon, Kara other characters as well as the basic narrationl.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was my first audible and now I am hooked. I listen to audibles as I work on tasks around the house. I would love to have listened to it all in one sitting, but it is lengthy since it four books compiled into one larger one.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed my first experience with audibles, and I will definitely listen to all of this author's books that are offered in this format.

Simon's story

Facebook had this scrolling on my feed the other day and when I read the blurb it looked kind of interesting, plus it was free. I thought what the heck, I like free. I bought it and discovered that the free part was only the first third of the book, which I find really annoying. Still I wanted to know what happened to Simon and Kara (well mostly Kara) so I bought the rest of the book (99 cents, can't even get coffee for 99 cents). Then because the whispersync version was only $1.99, I got that too, so I could continue knitting my sock.

So what did I like about the book? The characters were pretty well drawn and both had compelling backstories.

What I did not like about the book was the continual use of f**k, f**king, f**k me, etc., seriously, it seemed like if the author didn't use the word at least five times on each page, she went back and rewrote. We get that these two were hot for each other, but there are other words. And her description of Kara and Simon having sex were at times laughable.

The narrator was pretty good, although I would have liked it more if she could have picked up the speed just a tad bit.

I like my books to have a little more story, a little more character development, and just a little less crudeness. But that's just me.

Couldn't stop listening!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! I love this book, it actually had a story that didn't depend on sex scenes as fillers.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Simon was my favorite because he was wounded and locked away for so long and he had so much love locked away I just he hoped everyday that that special women would come along and when she did? Oh my!

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Powers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard her before but will watch for her in future.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't want to pause this book but when I did I hurried what ever to get back to it. I wanted it to go on. Some unfinished story-lines I wanted to know if the poor brother found happiness too. Oh well.

Any additional comments?

This book is on my favorite list now I would like more from J.S. Scott I may have to read the books if they are out there as nothing else is on Audible

Just ok

It was just an ok story, in my opinion. I never felt like the characters were all that relatable, or had much chemistry.

Sounds familiar

Overall, a decent story. However, the storyline was just a little to similar to 50 Shades of Grey. Which came first? The chicken or the egg?

Not for Me

What disappointed you about The Billionaire's Obsession: The Complete Collection?

This is just an average read for me. If not that that I got four books for 0.99 cents, it will be a one star for me. It is one of those books with a ridiculously young billionaire, single, attractive, and available, but with a tortured past. Kara, the heroine, was a nursing student, poor of course. Of course the main plot is sex, with some hoodlums thrown in. The problem that Simon had was not disclosed until 92% into the book. So if you are into that type of book, have at it. It is bereaved of plot, but abundant in sex. Not for me.

What was most disappointing about J. S. Scott’s story?

I stated it earlier.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Elizabeth Powers?

Maybe not.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I love to read more about Sam.

A Fifty Shades remake

If Harlequin commissioned a Fifty Shades of Grey remake this would be it. I saw many similarities in the storyline. I didn't mind that and enjoyed the story. I do have an issue with this being a "collection" of stories. The term collection seems to be more of a marketing tool because it's just one standard book. It has many hot love scenes and the romance is believable. You also get an introduction to Sam and Maddie's story which is a bonus and makes you want to listen to the next book. The narrator does a pretty good job as well.
