Publisher's Summary

He calls me perfect.

His flawless pet.

His good girl.

Broken down, and wounded by my emotionally neglectful ex, I wanted someone to tell me I was good enough.

Then, I stumbled into a new job with a boss who brought me to my knees - literally. He has me do things a real secretary would never do.

Emerson Grant tells me I’m more than just good enough. I’m worthy of his praise.

There are a million reasons why I should stay away. The owner of the Salacious Players’ Club is not just my new boss - he’s twice my age.

And my ex-boyfriend’s father....

With him, I am treasured. I am adored. I am his.

I’m a good girl, but I’m falling for the wrong man.

Emerson Grant knows what he wants - and he wants me.

So, how far will I go to hear his approval?

Kinky, Spicy & Romantic

Praise is an age-gap romance, with a praise kink and forbidden romance entwined. Praise revolves around the story of Emerson and Charlotte "Charlie" and their professional turned intimate relationship. Charlie is fresh out of a shitty relationship with Beau, Emerson's son, and gets offered a job to be Emerson's secretary. Emerson, along with a group of his friends, own a sex club, Salacious Players Club. *Side note: I wish this place was real. It sounds amazing!* After a lot of internal turmoil for both Charlie and Emerson things progress. The story is great, although I felt like the beginning was a little slow, the last half was fantastic and made up for the slow start. The characters are good, and the spice is also great. I really enjoyed this story. I like how the characters progressed and I loved the sex club and all the spice in the story. The kinks and sub/dom dynamic were really well written. I enjoyed this story and if you like any of the aspects of the story you will probably enjoy this read.

The narration specifically was okay. I really enjoyed the male narrator. He was great, his voice was sexy and it was perfect for the character. I was not as big of a fan of the female narrator. She was a bit nasally and she had a bit of whine. I didn't enjoy her as much and felt she took away from the story. It wasn't bad enough for me not to want to listen but it wasn't very good either.

Eden is a secondary character and I hope she at least gets a novella, I ADORED her.
*Trigger Note: It isn't noted by the author but I do believe it should be noted. Charlie's sister Sophie is a male to female transgender. It plays a significant part in the story and I think its worth it to be mentioned before someone reads the story.

Too woke

I really don’t purchase this type of book to be lectured on woke agendas. Her sisters arch felt out of place and forced and not what I was interested in reading about. Be super clear in the summary so the purchaser can decide if they want to read about it.

Hot 🔥 🥵

This was the best and most accurate portrayal of a BDSM Dom Sub relationship. most authors are not in the life. but this is such an accurate description that the probably did an amazing amount of research.

Absolutely loved it!

I picked up this book because some of my favorite BookTubers loved it and I did not want to miss out and I am so glad I did! I loved, loved, loved this book. Emerson. I have no words for Emerson. He is everything in this book. EVERYTHING!

Charlie and her ex shared an apartment and she needs her half of the deposit. Her ex, Beau, tells her she needs to get it from his dad. When she goes to get her money, there is a huge misunderstanding between them. Emerson decides to offer a job to Charlie as his "real" assistant but being in this world, Emerson and his friends own a kink club, a safe place to explore desires and kinks, intrigues Charlie in so many ways. But Emerson intrigues her even more. But nothing could ever happen between her ex's father and her, right?

They share combustable chemistry and deep connection and yet they keep each other at arm's length at the beginning. They could not be together because of their connection to Beau. But as each day passes, the harder it is to deny what they want. I could not stop listening and never wanted this book to end. And that one scene at the club at the end, I have no words. I loved Charlie's confidence in that moment.

Emerson was so protective, caring and could be a total alpha. I loved everything about him. Charlie was vulnerable because of her past, but also smart, beautiful and caring. I love her growth throughout this story as she finds herself and her confidence grows. This was my first read by this author and it will not be my last. I want to read everything she has written. I devoured this story and the narrators, Jack Calihan and Vivienne LaRue, were absolutely amazing. I cannot recommend this book enough. I loved it.

Happy listening.

To all my good girls out there,

Man, this book had me rethinking my whole life and what I like in the bedroom. It introduces you to the world of bdsm through a sex club. The concept of this book was beautifully written and I have to say makes me more and more interested in the lifestyle.

My favorite thing about reading books is the world that is being built through the pages and this book shows you the seductive world of BDSM and introduces you to all different ways that you can be pleasured or punished in a sexy manner.

I listened to this book through Audible and I loved it. The narrators did really good throughout this book. Jack did an amazing Emerson and Vivienne voiced Charlie/Charlotte really well. I enjoyed listening to this book.

I would highly recommend to all my good girls out there who need a little spice in there life. Enjoy!
