This was a cute little read with a few surprises for Roxane which will leave her speechless and on the run. She isn’t your normal type of women being the President of her father and grandfathers company she has a lot to live up to. This doesn’t leave her much time for romance which she really isn’t interested in. What she is interested in is what happens between the sheets. After her last romance that ended bad with him complaining over how much time she spent on your job she decided to have a few one nightstands. Her friend talked her into going to a special club where no one knows who you are. She meets a man there who intrigues her but won’t give in to her wants. She puts the dream man behind her putting herself into her work. The next man she meet is the lawyer her father hirers that gets under her skin. She can’t stand him, he is everything she dislikes in a man. Parker has other ideas and is driving her crazy in so many ways. That is all I am going to tell you, it is easy for the reader to work out the ins and outs but not for Roxane who is left in a tail spin.
Ms. Langola narration is wonderful she has a powerful voice that is very pleasant to listen to. Her character voices are great it is easy to know who is talking and just what they are feeling. Her tones are right on the money giving a compelling listen that pulls the reader in. There are no background noise, no volume changes, if any breaks were taken I could not tell. You can feel the emotions in her voice from anger to chuckling this is a wonderful narration. Her character voice and her normal voice are very pleasant to the listener’s ears giving you a story that you won’t want to put down. It is a very clean and clear audio. The plot flows easy and without interruption as the narrator puts the correct voice to the correct character which gave life to this listen. This is the first time I have listen to this narrator and really like how she performs. I am looking forward to listening to more of her work.
At first I didn’t care too much for this story line but as the author leads you into the plot I found I totally enjoyed it. The only issue I have is that this is a cliffhanger and book two has not been narrated at this time. I do not care very much for cliffhanger and most likely will forget to buy this when book 2 does come out. I enjoyed the mystery and how the plot plays out. It will be interesting to see just how and if Parker can win this lady over. I have a few chuckles and there was a few OH MY’S as well as a couple OH NO’s. It was a good plot that does hold the reader’s attention. The listener can feel the chemistry between these two as well as the shock, anger, disappointment and excitement. The characters keep you entertained as they dance around each other. For the most part they are likable and at times very funny.
SummaryAfter failing miserably at love, Roxane VanBuren swears off men but not before her determined best friend shows her all the advantages of being single.
