    When post-grad Rachael Hamilton accidentally gate-crashes a pro-athlete party, she ends up face-to-face with Ryan Carter, the NFL's most beloved quarterback. While most girls would be thrilled to meet the attractive young millionaire, Rachael would rather spend time with books than at sporting events, and she has more important things to worry about than romance—like her parents pressuring her to leave her unpaid publishing internship for law school.

    Story

    I liked the story, and it's a good thing since it was the only reason I kept going to finish the book. I honestly considered returning this audiobook after finishing the first chapter because the narration was just THAT BAD. Then I considered buying the kindle version and just finishing it that way, but since I bought this for a car ride, I trudged along through the audiobook.

    I had read reviews before I bought this, and I saw some people had said that the narration was poor, but I thought, they're just being picky... I was wrong. When the narrator pronounced the name Wickham as Wick-ham (from Austen's P&P) for the third time, I literally wanted to throw my ipod. I also had trouble distinguising between her voices for different characters on many different occasions, making the book and dialogue confusing. And in the end, all I could think was that people just don't talk that this, even if they're perennially happy people!! I would read this author again in the future because I really liked the story and characters, but I will avoid this narrator at all costs.
