The Billionaire’s Obsession: Simon by J. S. Scott
Narration: Elizabeth Powers
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.
I love a good billionaire romance because it’s such a fun and steamy trope. This audiobook had the steam factor turned up to high! Once I began listening I didn’t want to stop. Simon is such great character. He’s rich and powerful yet he’s afraid to love and be loved. He doesn’t do relationships and only has sexual encounters with women he can pay off. Until Kara. He’s captivated by her and feels the need to take care of her. So when she faints Simon swoops in and rescues her. When she awakens in his bed she awakens a much more than sexual hunger within him.
I really enjoyed this audio. The chemistry between Kara and Simon was off the charts! The sexual tension between the two was palpable and had me literally fanning myself. At times the storyline did get a bit predictable, but it was still a yummy romance and I enjoyed listening.
Narration by Elizabeth Powers was great. It was my audiobook by her and I really enjoyed it. She did a great job at portraying each character and her voice is so soothing to listen to. She easy brought the book to life and made the hours fly by. 4 Stars.
