Summary

Where hurt people go...

Ephraim Levine had it all, except Maliah Porter.

She isn’t the one who got away, she is the one who walked away.

He has adored Maliah Porter since they were children. She has epitomized beauty, innocence.

Everything about her captivated him. As they’ve matured and their love grew, he worshipped her body and soul.

And then, without reason, Maliah Porter left Ephraim Levine, and shattered their unbreakable love. He was suddenly held captive by her memory.

His obsession with her ruined him...But it also shaped the attractive, brilliant Ephraim into a calculating man.

One who would stop at nothing to take what he wanted. Maliah.

He will set the perfect scene - build the perfect cage to entrap the Queen.

And finally free himself of the restless need to dominate the one who stole his heart.

Ephraim’s Hurt Room includes a devilishly, depraved, hot alpha, who has grown tired of waiting for his HEA! Expect the audiobook sections to burn with tension, passion, and a lot of steam in this sizzlingly sexy, brand new romance!

Warning: This audiobook includes scenes that may be disturbing to some listeners.

Ephraim & Maliah

A story of second chance love, this was engaging and incredibly erotic. Ephraim and Maliah were childhood sweethearts, firsts to each other and now years later after the unexplained fleeing of Maliah are finding their way back to each other. Well, maybe that is not exactly true. The two have always been in tune with each other, but Ephraim has been watching and waiting for the chance to take her back. And take her back he does. It is full of pushing and pulling by Lee-Lee(Maliah), she is not wanting to give in to him, but her feelings are to strong not to keep going back. Avant also weaves in a thread of suspense, but I did find at time that the steamy scenes tended to overpower the story. Ephraim is more than an alpha, he is a man on a mission, extremely focused and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. His dominant nature follows him into the bdsm lifestyle and he has met his match with his submissive Lee-Lee. She is a sub by nature, loves the lifestyle, but she definitely has a defiant streak. It's a match made in heaven.

The narrator of this dark romance is Carter Donovan. It's my first listen by him, and while he gives a good performance, he is not the fit I would expect for Ephraim. Ephraim needs a deep, dark voice, and Carter was not giving that to me. I enjoyed his voice for Lee-Lee, but would have preferred a darker narrator for Ephraim.

Ephraim and Maliah

This BDSM romance was just what the title states that it was. This was a great alpha male story, with great drama and ruthlessness. Ephraim and Maliah have great chemistry in and out of the bed. A great listen and enjoyable.

exciting

I received this audiobook for free (thank you, Amarie) and didn´t know what to expect, It´s emotional, captivating but I´m not so much a fan of BDSM. Otherwise I´m looking forward to hearing or reading more from this author

Perfect

This one gives what it promises it pushed boundaries and is hot. Is this something I would listen to again? Yes it is that well done. The characters give the story such fantastic depth and they are so very fitting for one another. The narration just took the story to the next level which was such an enjoyable treat

This is not love

I love romance, but this is not romance. The main male character never shared a tender moment with his estranged former lover. He was ruthless and so full of anger, she was right to have left him. Maybe he got better at the end. I just couldn't stand to continue to the end.

sexy steamy

There's love and sexual chemistry between Ephraim and Maliah. Ephraim is an alpha male but is vulnerable where Maliah is concerned. She is his soulmate ever since they were teens and he never stopped loving her. Ephraim made a crazy plan to get her back into his life. The sex is wild, erotic, BDSM and is steamy hot.
Carter Donovan narration brings the story to life, giving each character their own voice and personality. The

Really enjoyed

I read the book before I listened to it. I really enjoyed the book and the audible but the narrator's voice kept reminding me of the narrator's of those crime shows i.e. cold case, Dateline or anything on the ID channel.

Not my cup of tea

I would have preferred more story and less sex. Maliyah Porter had always loved Ephraim Levine since childhood, so had Eph. She was everything to him and when they went their separate ways after an annulment, it messed both of them up. Lee Lee's parents really messed her mind up and Eph's parents wanted more for their son. He had to get his Sweets back and find out why she left even if it had been years later. He was not the same without his Lee Lee. The Hurt Room was a way to get her back, but there was too much scheming going on, but they managed to get everything out and get their HEA.

What was this?

I am a fan of this author by far. It was hard to get started with this book. When I did I found I could not click with this woman. I won't even talk on the Bdsm. This woman had me calling her crazy and she could have and almost messed yh
that man's life up when all she had to do was open her mouth. I didn't like the back and forth, it was kind of confusing. This woman to me acted very immature even though it all happened in her adult,young. I don't think the story ended in a good way, it seemed like loose ends were steamed over vs revolving in a meaningful way. I will never re visit this one again. Narration wS good.

Ephraim’s Hurt Room

Hmm, this book was full of emotions, love, family and remembrance. This story had me praying for Ephraim and Maliah, you can feel the love they have for each other.i must that even though their love started for the wrong reason the end product was worth itself in gold. I love how Maliah and Ephraim protected each other. It just proves that if you really love someone you will let them go. I must say the second meeting really turned out to be more of an eye opener and takes them to higher level. Above all I love how the narrator narrated this storyline.
