He who didn't feel
He who didn't love
He who didn't cry

Rocco is a drugs lord, violent and vicious with the looks of a catwalk model....

So...there is the audition.... in a warehouse....?
Jaden, dear Jaden wants to please. He wants to belong and the four men across him want to be pleased. Violence is nearby and Jaden knows exactly who he wants as his keeper.

A great grim dark erotic read. Hurt, comfort, hurt....just how

This is a quick and gritty read. Definitely not for the fainthearted or for those seeking a fun and fluffy read.

Jaden is a budding actor who gets to audition for crime boss Rico and his gang of movie producers. Except this is not like any ordinary audition and soon turns into an erotic encounter as the young man is tested to see his potential.

Rico is surprised at the emotions that rise within him because of Jaden and he's tempted to take the encounter beyond one night. But the evening's activiti

This was the first book I’ve read by Ms. Bronson and I did not know what to expect. Rico has had a hard life and now is a drug lord that has a reputation for being crazy. As a teen he spent time in jail and that’s where he learned to enjoy blowjobs from men. Now aside from his drug trade he owns a movie production company that’s where he filters all of his dirty money. He and his team of producers enjoy “auditioning” new talent. Jaden is looking for his big break in the movie industry

The Audition
This story was a quick, one sitting read. The story being so short it is expected to feel a bit rushed to get in a start, middle, and end. However this author handled it pretty well and gave the characters a surprising amount of depth for only having a few pages! Rico is a double life criminal and director with a shady past who shows Jaden how to open up to his naughty side.

However one thing that bothered me was the drug use and how it was gone about, it doesn't cover anything about

I really enjoyed this short and steamy story! I would love to see this expanded into a more in depth story, maybe with Ricardo’s past coming back to interfere with Jaden’s career. This was my first read by Lea but definitely not the last!

Did you ever start reading a book and get drawn in completely? The descriptive narrative of this story is very well done and the story line is very well laid out. It is an extremely quick read and it left me wanting more.

A quick, dark erotic read. Good storyline that is fast-paced but does not feel rushed. Ricardo and Jaden have lots of chemistry between them and they really help each other out. A good dose of insta-love and insta-lust with hot sex scenes.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Jaden has big dreams and believes they can come true behind a metal door with a handwritten sign "Audition" taped to it. Innocent as he is, he's not expecting what might wait for him there. The man who owns the production house is confusing. He has the looks of a movie star, but could also pass for a hitman. And the audition procedure is somewhat strange as well. But Jaden is told that the way he reacts at what is being asked of him reveals his character better than anything else... ...more
