Description

"Robbed of all sense and co-ordination, I seem to hang there, in his grip. Staring. His eyes scan me, cruising over my face, then downwards, and his expression is amused, certainly, but also disturbingly analytical. After what I did, and what I felt back there in the cloakroom, I feel connected to him, intimately, but clearly all he feels for me is mild interest and curiosity. Or is it?"

When reformed bad girl Maria Lewis takes a dull job in local government back in her home town, the quiet life she was looking for is quickly disrupted by the enigmatic presence of her boss, Director Robert Stone. A dangerous and unlikely object of lust, Stone touches something deep in Maria's sensual psyche and draws her to an erotic underworld, a far cry from life in the dusty offices of Borough Hall.

What a romp!

I enjoyed the playful nature of the book and the narrator was spot on. While it wasn't as hard core as it could have been, it was still a bit more 'exey' than a romance novel. It was a story, human foibles come into (or is that 'out to'?) play, but it wasn't mean spirited. I doubt this book would have been nearly as enjoyable without Ms Kollander's sparkling performance.

Is there a story here?

Lots of one-on-one sex. The story line is very weak and the characters are not very believable. The only reason I was able to finish listening was because it was short. This is likely to be my last book by this author.

Clever Bobby!!!

I wasn't really sure about choosing this book until I read a review that mentioned that the main character of this book - Robert Stone (or Clever Bobby to his friends) was written with the character of Robert Goren (Law & Order Criminal Intent) in mind. Right I thought - I can put a face to Mr Stone's character and from there this book took on a life of its own.

The story centres around Borough Hall Director of Finance - Robert Stone and new employee Maria Lewis. Robert is a big man, tall and stocky, middle aged, greying at the temples and with a very dry and illicit sense of humor. He is dominent, issues very kinky challenges and enjoys taking risks; risks he enjoys even more when they involve our young Maria.

As with Suite Seventeen and In Too Deep, Portia Da Costa has written these books in the first person. They all involve the Waverley Grand, Saskia, Borough Hall and Greg the IT Geek. Reading them is like touching base with your kinky old friends.

Yes the book does involve diverse sexual activities and some language that may offend. But it is romantic, funny and does have a happily ever after.

The narration by Petra Kollander is excellent.

Hot and sweet

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

A lot of hot sex and a sweet story to connect it all.

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

No, this is the first time. She's got a great dry tone that suits this story. Very pleased with the narrating!

Caught Me!

What made the experience of listening to Entertaining Mr Stone the most enjoyable?

The narrator was very good. She kind of sounded like Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins)... which made it a little creepy at times, but made such a naughty subject sort of elegant. The story itself was great as well. I didn't want to stop listening.

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

There was no crying but quite a bit of giggling (on the inside, as my co-workers might wonder at my sanity otherwise)

Average

This is a decent story, but nothing really special. The character development was somewhat better than most for at least attempting to explore several different characters. But it seems as though the author can't quite decide on the essence of who the principal characters really are. Both the heroine and the hero are complete flip flops to some degree with the heroine flopping the most. In the end, the hero turns out to be much less than we bargained for. While the heroine appears to be still finding her way.

Highly erotic

Enough variety to appeal to a variety of tastes. I thought that the narrator was great.

Humorous, Sexy & Fun - Great read for this genre

Where does Entertaining Mr Stone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Oh, I have so many favorites...this is in the "I'll definitely listen to again (and again) group."

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maria-she is hilarious, although Mr. Stone had great moments too

What does Petra Kollander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The accent! Fantastic job

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was put off by the hotel seen near the end of the book...could have done without it as it grossed me out.

Any additional comments?

While the story is lighthearted, this is a graphic, sexual book with strong language - reader beware if this isn't your cup of tea.
