    Story

    I saw that all three stories were now available as a set, and finally have listened to books 2 and 3 in this trilogy.

    Overall, it's very entertaining but again - in a superficial way. There are some fun characters - just don't look for too much depth in anyone's backgrounds. As a reviewer commented, the dialogue does remind me of a Hallmark Movie, albeit with a bdsm slant (and if Hallmark ever wanted to make a more erotic romance movie, these stories would make great screenplays :-))

    But the sex scenes are definitely HOT though and it's my main 'why' for getting these audiobooks.

    When Angel O'Malley is left penniless by her deceased father's gambling debts, she is forced to sue pro football player Billy Burner for child support. Blindsided with a five-year-old daughter, he tackles fatherhood with the same commitment he gives to the game, but he has his eye on a bigger prize: Angel's heart. She agrees to Billy's plan to play house to ensure the new father makes no rookie mistakes.

    What did you love best about Huddle Up?

    I love the tongue in cheek way the author has with describing the characters' thoughts, especially Billy when he meets Angel again in her late father's old bar/poolhall. Having a big brawny football guy be more concerned with the wiles of his old flame than the burly bartender/family friend was quite amusing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angel - I loved her toughness and her love for her daughter. Being a single mom raising her child alone for 5 years plus dealing with an alcoholic father was so hard for her, but she never forgot Billy and still was in love with him, despite all the misunderstandings.


    What about Christine Padovan’s performance did you like?

    Her acting ability in bringing the individual characters to life. She continues to improve with her narration style which is a big plus because I love the writing of Liz Matis so much, I'd hate to not buy these audiobooks if the narrating was not enjoyable to listen to.


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

    Yes, but more anger that these two missed out on being a family together for the first 5 years of their child's life, but if I say why, that will spoil the surprise twist in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope the author continues the series - very fun shorts with great characters mixed with the right amount of conflict and hot sex :-)

    Pro football player Jake Miller's game plan for winning back supermodel Hannah Hahn is play action in the bedroom. Once he sees beyond the swimsuits and lingerie, feelings of love blindside him, changing the rules of the game. Hannah owns the runway, but that success came with a price and a secret that's kept her from trusting a man until Jake crashes through her defenses. The paparazzi love the beauty and the beast couple but the tabloid rumors turn ugly and test the fragile trust between them.

    Elisabeth Anderson has seen Trevor and his friends at the infamous Manhattan BDSM club WhipperSnapper, where everyone calls them the BAD Boys, for "Billionaire Arrogant Doms." The BAD Boys--Trevor Brooks, Marc Wilde, and Roman Chase - are aptly named; they've made money hand over fist due to their aggressive investing at the Brooks Wilde Chase Fund. These guys are so rich they can get away with anything, or so the rumors go.

    Story

    I don't get why the writer wants to put so much history on her characters into as few words as possible, leaving one entertained by the overall story, but lacking feeling for the characters. This story could easily have been longer and been even better. A decent narrator gets the hard task of taking mile-a-minute events and getting you to follow the action without falling off the tracks.

    But have to say, when it came to the sex scenes, that's where the narration shined most - and that's mainly why I buy these books :-) 3.5 stars for having fun secondary characters, great sense of humor and hot sex scenes.
