Confirmed bachelor Vince Marino wants nothing more than to win the Clover Park Library project and earn partner in his father's construction company. But a last-minute bid by Sophia Capello, the jaw-dropping daughter of his father's lifelong rival, throws Vince out of the running.
Sophia has to get Capello Construction back on track after her father left them near bankruptcy. Except she's way out of her league in the construction world, which is why she takes a big risk and proposes a partnership with the hotheaded and handsome Vince. After she wins the project.
Vince's cockiness combined with Sophia's determination forges an alliance filled with explosive and tempting tension. But what will happen when Vince, who doesn't believe in mixing business with pleasure, discovers Sophia has never truly experienced passion? Will he stick to his rule and protect everything he's worked so hard for? Or will he find the temptation of showing Sophia what she's been missing too much?

What I love best about this story is how love can make a person change dramatically in an instant when possibly standing to lose someone close to their heart.
There are so many books out there that parts of this story can be compared to. But this story of Vince and Sophia is in a category all its own. When you try to compare with other books, it is possible, but really because of its own unique story line twist, you come to find that you don't want to compare it to anything else. I love the individuals in this book because they all compliment each other throughout the story. And as you get into it more and more, you fall in love with each and every person that it is about. Vince and Sophia's love is truly one of a kind.
My favorite part is when Vince tells Sophia for the first time that he loves her and she is surprised by his declaration.
I truly did want to just sit and listen to this book in one shot. Unfortunately because of life, I was unable to do so.
I hope you all enjoy the story of Vincent and Sophia becoming an unlikely couple as much as I did. This book truly was a treat to read and Charles Lawrence once again was outstanding in his narration performance of Not My Romeo.
Mr Charles Lawrence did a great job in narrating the story. The different voices used were consistent and you always knew who was speaking
Both characters are strong individuals , tough on the outside and softies on the inside. Their loyalty to family spoke volumes of their integrity and love.
Wow, impossible to choose a favorite. Both Sofia and gruffy Vince were great.
It made me laugh, and at times sad. But it also reminded me of the value of family
Both Ms Gilmore and Mr Lawrence did a great job. I want to read more of the author's books, and know that if I come across a book narrated by Mr Lawrence, it will be a winner
I always enjoy listening to Charles!
Vince is a gruff man but he hides deep pain from when he was a child. His brothers always said it would take a strong woman to put up with him. Sophia is fire and challenges Vince at every turn. She is not what he ever expected and is everything he always needs.
This 6th book in the Clover Park Series is an enjoyable and entertaining story. Vince and Sophia are both stubborn, highly motivated and passionate. Their relationship is explosive, frustrating at times and comically entertaining! It also includes characters from the previous book adding to the story of this dynamic couple. Every book in this series is fun and so entertaining, I continue to look forward to the next one. Charles Lawrence’s narration always adds to the enjoyment, as usual.
