From the acclaimed New York Times best-selling author of If I Can’t Have You and Darius Jones comes a new novel as sexy and riveting as the best of Zane and Eric Jerome Dickey.
Nursing wealthy businessman Chicago DuBois back to health was the least Loretta Lovelace figured she could do. After all, it was her bet that set off Loretta’s stalker - and put Madison’s husband at death’s door. And with Madison out of the country, Loretta couldn’t resist looking after Chicago’s interests and reigniting his passion for life - in and out of bed. But now Madison wants to take back what’s no longer hers, and that’s a mistake Loretta plans to make her regret.
With a baby on the way and a family empire to save, Madison knows it’s past time to make some tough decisions. But for this spoiled beauty, treacherous habits die hard, and the sexy billionaire who just can’t get enough of her is the weapon she needs to escape scandal and settle old scores. Too bad her newest play will put her in way over her head, and making things right will mean gambling with everything she wants most.

Mary's debute writtings were WONDERFUL, mature, and erotic. This series is soooo unrealstic. Many characters but not one you can root for fully. Whinny women, weak rich men, no champions, fake friendships. What man will let his girl live with his brother? What friend allows another woman to sleep under her husbands roof and not do anything about it. Over it. I usually like Cary Hite but he made all the characters sound like they had special needs.
REVAMPING THE ENTIRE STORY!
I normally love Cary Hite's performances, but this book was his worst!
I would re-write the entire story!
I wish they would have taken their time and written a quality sequel!
I just think this book was rushed. I love the first part which was "If I can't have you" This was just awful. I was looking for more and realism.
The lives of all the characters was overdone and unreal. I can't stand the hospital scene. Since when in real life, you have all those people in the labor room and a tv crew.
You could not tell the difference from the women to the men. I love Cary Hite, but the only voice I think he did good on in this story is Roosevelt and Granville.
Anger and disappointment. I don't think she can redeem herself from this one.
It was okay.
Only is they had aleadry read "If I Can't Have You".
This book is not the best stand alone title in fact if not for me reading the first book I may not have finished this one because the beginning was not very good to me. However I must say that it did get better over time.
Cary is a good narrator but they should have gotten someone else to do the female characters. Especially after having the previous book done that way and developing southern belle voices. There was no way Cary could make that happen.
Loretta Loses Her Mind
When the book first started I was like what the hell?! but of course I have to finish it since I am already invested and it did get better. I didn't care for the way the Loretta charcter turned out because the way she was initially presented just did not show even one inkling of the person she ultimately became. Overall at the beginning I thought aww this isnt so good but it did get better. Also, there were things like Grandville gets 50 years but in the next breath he is running around town. I'm not sure what is going on but nevetheless since I have already started this series I will continue. There is still a chance that the next one will be better or just as good as the first one.
LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
I enjoyed the first book but this one was pretty good too and answered a lot of my questions that I needed answered and at the end you get to find out who the baby daddy is. Loretta got on my nerves in this book though her love for Chicago comes full force and she feels like she is the wife which is where the last book ends. That Damn Granville is still cray cray though and in love with Madison and waiting for the baby to come so he can do his fatherly duties and live and marry Madison. But can he do it from behind bars and will Madison accept him? Which one do you think is the daddy CHICAGO or GRANVILLE? Guess you have to read in order to find out. One thing I learned is that you can be in love with someone but don’t let that person keep a hold on you that makes you disrespect your expectation set for the one you love. Forgiveness is something you have to truly earn and you only deserve that if you are truly remorseful and it will take time to get it. This was a good read and the Narrator was very strong and keeps you interested. Good job HoneyB!
It wasnt a good sequel. The new voices who took over the characters from the first book wasn't believable, The storyline didn't flow well either. I was eagerly waiting for the followup, but this wasn't as good as I thought it would be.
I'd give it a shot.
Without giving too much away, I didn't understand the sentencing part. Did Granville go to jail or not? Some parts of book seemed as if he was sentenced while others say he was aquitted.
Then, all of a sudden, towards the end of the book it seems like he and Loretta are friends...When did that happen? I just got confused a few times thru this book :(
Authors, take your time if you decide to write part three...I'd would buy it but I'd hope it would be as good as part one.
Love reading! Always have, glad my friend turn me on to audible. Love romance and mystery books
The characters in this story is a hot mess. Lorretta needs her butt whooped! She is so confused and call herself a Christian. Granville is CRAZY he should be in mental hospital. Great read though, wonder what's happen now..
I am a sports mom on the go who loves romance. I am so glad I found audible. I am addicted.
I don't like this book. I couldn't finish it. I have tried and tried to listen, but when I noticed it had 53 Chapters, I couldn't do it. It took everything in me to get to Chapter 15. I also didn't like that the sequel didn't have the same people narrating the book. This man doesn't do the female voices justice. The Madison voice was better than the first book, even though it was a man.
It hasn't at all.
It was just bad. He didn't have enough of a difference between the characters to notice the difference between them.
I have read people give bad reviews and say, "I just couldn't finish it". I didn't think I would ever listen to a book and not want to finish. However, this book was the one. I couldn't finish it. I couldn't imagine after the first book, why it would take 46 or 47 chapters in the first book and over 50 chapters in this book. Save you credit for something else!
I did not like how my favorite character, Loretta turned out. She was a totally different character from the first book. She was the better woman and she turned out to be a lesbian and a low life. I thought that was too dramatic of a change.
Cary is a wonderful narrator but I liked having two narrator's, a male and a woman. Having Cary be like a woman was awkward.
Chaz and Tisha
Mary I love you but please just rewrite the story, HATED IT!
1. The book was a rush job and the story lines was tacky. 2. The sad part is that Loretta gives Christians a really bad rap! 3. What kind of father would sell your property while you are sick and make his child kill her spouse for money and still lose his business to the man he wanted dead!
4. Why is Chicago a wimp?
Waited a little longer before releasing this book and not trying to make it a sequel. The first book kept me on the edge of my seat. Mary Morrison is a great writer, but I felt this was not one of her better books
The narrator was good that's one of the reasons I continue to listen
Madison Mother, who wouldn't tell their child about something that could affect her life!
If the gun was thrown in the pool at a hotel why did it take so long to find the gun and why wasn't the pool cleaned out after the shooting? anyway Ms Morrison I thank you for your story lines.
