Absolutely filthy from start to finish, this fling to more romance is HOT, and the audio version just takes things up a notch. I’ve read about 250 romance novels in the last year, and this audiobook still made me look over my shoulder to make sure no one was listening, lol. Because, yeah, it’s sizzling. While I wasn’t completely sold on either the progression of the relationship (it goes from zero to sixty) or the characters themselves (our hero seems to fall for his girl because of her thigh gap and her skill at riding his *ahem*), the writing is really solid and I found this to be a very enjoyable listen. I may have rolled my eyes a few times and fast-forwarded through one or two of the MANY steamy scenes, but I genuinely liked this overall.
The story follows Kendall, a woman whose sister is a reality star. She just started a new job working for her sister in the city, and it’s there that Kendall meets a sexy stranger. Dominick took one look at Kendall and knew that he wanted her – just for the night – so it’s not long before the two are heading up to his hotel room and heating up the sheets. But when Kendall joins her sister at a business meeting the next day and discovers that Dominick is her lawyer, things get complicated quickly. The man is just as intense out of the bedroom as he is in it, and Kendall finds herself agreeing to join a reality show herself. The move causes plenty of drama with Kendall’s sister, and Dominick becomes her unlikely ally.
These two start banging within about a minute of meeting, and I wasn’t sure what to think. But, WOW, does Mann know how to write a steamy scene. In audio? Whoa boy. The chemistry was dripping from every scene, and the sexual tension was undeniable. It took awhile for me to like either character (they’re just so sex and image-obsessed), but the story itself was engaging. I liked the Hollywood romance and the focus on the dark side of reality television. It’s a quick, mega steamy, bingeable read, and the book just flew by. The romance does get a little instalovey in the back half, but I guess that’s to be expected when so much focus is on the steam. Overall, it was certainly not a bad way to spend the day, and it satisfied my light and sexy craving.
This is hot, hot, hot in audio, and both narrators do an excellent job. Tim Paige’s voice is deep and masculine, perfect for the MANY steamy scenes. Kelsey Navarro also does a great job, and the dual narration worked for me. Would’ve been better as a duet with all of that steam, but this is the next best thing. I found the audio to be incredibly easy to listen to, and the length was also ideal. I had no trouble finishing the book in one day, and I enjoyed it the whole way through. This is probably not the best book to listen to at the office, but the light and sexy vibes worked well in audio.
A sexy, billionaire, Hollywood, stand-alone romance from USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann …
I’m not the type of girl who picks up a man on a rooftop bar.
Not the kind of girl who lets a man’s hands roam my body, discovering I have no panties on.
Never the girl who has hours’ worth of o’s from a smoking-hot one-night stand.
But Dominick makes it so easy to say yes.
His body, his moves, and his oh-so-wicked tongue have me saying it over and over again.
Yes, right there.
He worships every inch of my body, and I’m still sore the next morning when I meet him again.
This time, he’s Mr. Dalton, my sister’s cutthroat entertainment lawyer.
And he has a proposition for me.
He wants to make me famous.
Of course, that means sharing a screen with my wildly jealous sister.
It means giving up my career.
It means the whole world will suddenly know everything about me.
Which presents one catastrophic problem—Dominick doesn’t date famous people.
So, do I take a chance at becoming a Hollywood star, or do I pass up the opportunity to be with the man who gave me a taste of forever?
