Publisher's Summary

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.

    "I'm convinced someone else wrote this book and Mary put her name on it."

    I don't know what happened or why but I agree that this book was rushed. The first of the series was great! The story was not well developed and the characters all took a 360 from the first book. Loretta got on MY LAST NERVE! The performance irked my nerve even more. They should have kept the same performance with the two different readers like the first book. Second, the storyline made NO SENSE! And was unrealistic as it pertained to the summary of events. However, I did still enjoy the book for the most part, despite Loretta losing her damn mind and whatnot. Overall, I felt the story line was chaotic, the characters were annoying and over the top dramatic and the performance was annoying and overly drawn out. Two stars from me. I'm still a fan of hers but, I won't recommend the second or third book to anyone.

    What did you love best about I’d Rather Be with You?

    Even thou Gainesville yearned for Madison, he couldn't stop showing his addiction for Lorita


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gainesville, he is one of the dumbest, smartest characters I've ever seen.


    What does Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the character to reality/life. You would think you're talking to the person who is telling their side of things at that moment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No doubt

    "Shamefully Disappointing...."
    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Cary Hite?

    Not SURE!!!


    What was most disappointing about Mary B. Morrison’s story?

    The Characters... There was no development/growth of her characters. As the listener, there was no character to feel either sorry/happy for... none you wanted to love/hate... they all fell flat.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Maybe use a different Narrator but its hard to say the writing was pretty bad.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    To be honest as editor, I would throw this book in the trash.


    Any additional comments?

    Mary B. Morrison was the first author whose book signing I attended, which for me makes this author a little more special than all others due to the memory of our first encounter. The book signing was at a little bookstore I frequented in Inglewood California coincidently; I had strolled in just in time to hear Ms. Morrison read from Soul Mates Dissipate, her interaction with her audience was so awesome that she made new fans that day including myself immediately, I began reading "most" of her books that followed… (That said, writing this review is a bit difficult but I have to be honest). This book however, was so frustrating at times; it took me months to listen. I kept putting it down as the characters became more and more childlike. Not knowing whether the problem was the narrator Cary Hirt and wanting to give the story a real chance since I was using Audible and not actually reading the book myself, the only thing to do I felt was to get the actual book and read using my own imagination but alas, to no avail it was the writing… the book felt rushed, the story was so mediocre it felt like a 12-yr-old with a dirty mouth wrote the story. I am so sorry Mary but you disappointed me on this one. Save your money/credits skip this one!!!

    "HORRIBLE LISTEN"
    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Cary Hite?

    Yes


    What could Mary B. Morrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The story was totally unrealistic, trying too hard to add drama.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have more than one person narrate for all the characters, male and female parts are narrated by a man. Ugh!


    What character would you cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I saw the other bad reviews but I had to listen to get my questions answered from the first book. I was rolling my eyes throughout the entire book because it was so unrealistic. I absolutely loved the first book. I just expected a better follow-up.

    "Very unrealistic"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the story was more realistic and did have these farfetched story lines.


    Has I’d Rather Be with You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. But it's making me never want to read another one of Mary B's books.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Cary Hite’s performances?

    not sure.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NOOOO.


    Any additional comments?

    Mary B. needs to do her damn research. If you are going to have a legal scene then you really need to understand how the justice system works. As a law student listening to that part of the book was very frustrating. There is NO way Loretta would've gotten thirty day's in jail without her day in court. It's unconstitutional and illegal. Also, if the jury would've returned a verdict for Grandville as guilty the judge would not overrule it unless there are extenuating circumstances. Mary B. didn't even attempt to explain to us why that happened. I mean if you wanted him to be out of jail for the next book maybe you shouldn't have put him in jail in the first place. With all the money she makes with these books she can afford to hire a legal consultant. Hell all she would need to do is pick a law school and offer to pay a second or third year law student-- I am very hesitant to read her third book but I did not like this one so much I am going to give her last book a chance. The first one was good-second one suck- let's see where the third one leads us.
