Summary

Living on Violet Circle, a place that's less of a neighborhood and more of an insane asylum poured into the street, I thought I was prepared for anything. After you've seen a woman strip down at the laundry room to wash the clothes she's wearing, then saunter across the street naked, you've seen it all, right? How naïve I was.  

After the factory closed, leaving me and a good portion of the town unemployed, I took a job managing Scarlet Toys. I knew it wouldn't be a typical work environment, selling adult toys in a town more uptight than a constipated nun, but some things you just never see coming. Like the protesters covered in poison ivy, screaming about smut peddlers. Or a dancing dinosaur named Fappy. Or the allure of the man standing in the center of all the chaos.  

Wyatt Lawson, a six-foot-four-inch heap of muscle with a quick smile, ignited my interest in more than the available manager position. Like the missionary one. Or the rodeo. Maybe the side rider. What can I say? I'm an overachiever.  

Let's just hope he doesn't scare easily.  

Contains mature themes.

Bad Narration

Firstly I love this story and the author, I recommend any of her books including this one. I have this book so when I needed a good Romcom audio book I immediately thought of this. The narrator sounds like she is at least in her mid to late 30s yet the main character is 21, I just could not connect and then I heard the voice of the main male and I could not continue because he sounded mature and serious, the male lead is neither of those things. I will be returning unfortunately

Violent Circle

This was a great funny read. Who doesn't love a story about a adult toy store moving to a small town with a crazy community. The people living on the Violent Circle may be financially struggling but their community spirit and willingness to help each other is priceless. The main characters have great chemistry and some adventurous smexy times. The author uses the adult entertainment industry as a comedic backdrop as we witness what it means to struggle in small town America and how those same people adapt to loosing jobs as manufacturing moves overseas. Don't get me wrong, that's a sad subject and a common struggle but this book is funny as heck. You don't have to have money to be wealthy.

The narrator did a great job and I would listen to her again. I recommend giving this book a listen too.
