Heather Pierce is done being a wallflower, both personally and professionally. Desperate to live a different life for one night, she attends a speed-dating event. Maybe here, anonymous unless she chooses otherwise, she can become someone new. When a man way out of her league sits across from her, Heather gathers her courage and takes charge of what she wants, secretly fearing he won't desire the real person she's desperate to hide.
Top acquisitions officer and international playboy Tony Carmine is about to close the biggest deal of his career. But then he meets Heather at a speed-dating event...and discovers losing control may be exactly what he needs. Her blossoming sensuality occupies his every thought, consuming him with the need to possess the most intriguing lover he's ever encountered - until he walks into the boardroom and sees Heather on the other side of the negotiating table.

I'm shocked! I really, really liked this story, it was entertaining, a little racy but definitely not over the top. I loved the main female character and I love Sean Crisden's narration much more so than Lucy Malone, he actually could have done the whole audio in my opinion. You won't be disappointed go ahead spend your credit!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Got to watch out for the quiet wallflowers a - once lit they can go Bang. I enjoyed this hot sexy story. Heather took charge. Nice to have the female dominating for a change in a story. Loved the double narration by Sean Crisden and Lucy Malone. Really suited this book and they sounded great. I will be grabbing the second book in this series once released.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Heather has always let men run over her. That is until she meets Tony. He brings out a new side of her that she thinks never existed, or maybe it just took meeting the right man.
This is a light, sexy listen. It's perfect for killing a few hours listening to a love story with some kinky thrown in. I didn't mind using my credit on it. I would recommend it for a fun listen.
I liked the minimal amount of drama!
I didn't dislike anything. I couldn't stop listening until it was finished in a little over a day. These two are easily a pair of my favorite couples. I can't wait to continue their story! Excited to see where Ellison takes them!
Something about this story just sucked me in. I wish the sequel was available but alas I will read it hearing Sean Crisden's voice and Lucy Malone's as well. Is there a Sean Crisden fan club so I can sign up? IJS
The story was very VERY VANILLA. It was cute and quirky love story. The narrators got me through this story.. They are very talented and made it work, even though the story line really was weak.
There were two, first that Heather decider to do something a bit different to make herself more attractive to men......and so it worked. ( but she worried about it) second that Tony really cared for Heather, SPOILER.....even giving up his job to give her a chance to improve her job.
Not really, I don't understand all the great reviews this got, maybe because of the narrators. But if I had read the book and not listened I never would have finished the story.

Yes - it was an enjoyable story and the chemistry between the two characters was super hot.
It was a little quick...might have developed the characters and the relationship a little more.
They felt a little robotic at times...a little stiff, hard to get into the flow of what they were reading about.
It would be nice - in fact...it is the start to two different series - Heather and Tony's next book is called Vanilla Twist and Avoiding Mr. Right is the second book in the Walk on the Wild Side series.
It's a great erotica, with minimal angst - a light-n-steamy read if you will.
Not write it at all
The narrators were the WORST part! This book may have actually been a good book but the narrators made me want to slit my own wrists!
Nope....(Popping the p)
I couldnt even finish the story, I tried, I really really tried but decided I would rather chew glass...
