From USA Today best-selling author Sky Corgan comes a new sinfully wicked dark romance.
Seven sins. Seven days.
I need a muse for my next exhibit. She has to be young. She has to be a virgin. And she has to be willing to do everything I tell her to. No questions asked.
Never in a million years did I imagine that I’d be selected for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Now I’m being whisked away to a private island to spend a week alone with world-renowned painter Chandler Lexington. He’s gorgeous and mysterious and eccentric. I thought he was just going to paint me, but every seductive glance has a secret hidden intention behind it, and I’m beginning to think that this is about more than creating art.
Heat level: smokin' hot.
Content warning: This stand-alone novel contains scenes that may make some listeners uncomfortable.
Chandler Lexington is an artist who has advertised for a virgin muse. Emma Jones fits the bill and her head is spinning from the moment she meets the talented artist. She is there for a week and things between them heat up and get ice cold. Is there more than a relationship between artist and muse? Or is the eccentric artist as cool as he portrays?
Kassiopia DeVora sounds very young, which is a perfect fit for the character of Emma Jones. DeVora is able to pull off a husky, deeper performance for the character of Chandler Lexington. A 4 star performance
Overall, this is a novel with very descriptive scenes of "mature content." Listener beware if that is not your thing. I've had the opportunity to listen to several of Skye Corgan's books and I find that I love some (Torn: A Dark Bad Boy Romance) and others that are a bit too much for me, like this one.
*I received this complimentary copy in exchange for my unbiased review. As noted, the content was stronger than I care for, however I was invested in the story and wanted to know how the end would turn out.

Very steamy listen with complex characters and great story. The narrator did an amazing job of bringing the story to life. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
There were bits of the book that I wasn’t sure I wanted to keep listening and thought Chandler to be a complete jerk. Overall I think it was a really good book that took an unexpected turn. I recommend this book.

SE7EN just didn't work for me. The premise was promising, but I didn't like the characters (ANY of them) and the plot was borderline disturbing on a couple different levels for me. I could see this being enjoyable to fans of dark romance, so it would be good for them if they're looking for a quick listen - but it really just was for me.
I could not connect with this book like I have with other books by this author. I thought this book was trying to catch onto the Fifty Shades bandwagon. The artist (Chandler) and the muse (Emma) were the main characters in this book. I thought the narrator did a good job. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
First off, Se7en is NOT vanilla at all. So if you're looking for something a bit more romantic and safe, this is not the book, or the author, for you. That being said, I've read other Sky Corgan books and have enjoyed them. This particular one I just couldn't really get into. Emma sounds super young (more on that below) and I just didn't feel anything for the characters. Things felt rushed as far as their timeline together went and I felt that the ending was a little abrupt and was missing something. I definitely would have liked that to have been explored a little more. If you're interested in reading a Sky Corgan novel, I'd definitely recommend some of her other works before this one.
As for the narration, Kassiopia DeVora does a good job, though her voice, as other reviewers have mentioned, sounds SO young that the book almost seemed inappropriate to me, as she sounded much younger than she was supposed to be. This isn't to day that Ms. DeVora is not a good narrator. I just don't think she was a perfect fit for this particular novel.

I received this book in exchange for a unbiased review. I loved this one. It was a little unrealistic but, sometimes you need that i. a book. I was happy with the ending. I like Sky Corgan's writing anyway.
I found the idea behind the story really interesting, the contract wouldn't be legal, but it is an interesting idea.
The story alternates between hot and disturbing, the sex us hot, how Chandler treated Emma outside of sex was cold, and I couldn't help thinking that Emma is suffering from Stockholm syndrome.
I think that this is a story where you have to suspend judgement and just listen to as an erotic story, if you do that then it's quite enjoyable.
I have man unanswered questions, what was she given to 'help her sleep' and were they dreams or reality?
The character voices were well done and the pace and tone of the narration worked well with the shifting dynamics of the various scenes.

I do enjoy Sky's writing. When I see her name I know it means Great sex lies ahead. Again like her other but she has written, there was lots of taboo sex. There's nothing really vanilla about the sex in this book. I also like. even though there was a ton of great sex, no sex scene was exactly the same.
So I didn't enjoy 100% of the story I wish it did go a little bit deeper in development . The ending had me a little disappointed. Maybe it's because its not what I would not have done?
I enjoyed the narration, I thought she had a great voice. I would've given her five stars but sometimes she seemed to be reading a tad bit fast.
