Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can't stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich family's charities; he's a rough-and-tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way.
Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love. Forced together, the mutual attraction simmering beneath the surface of Brent and Hayden's non-relationship grows with every argument until it explodes into a scintillating night of mind-blowing sex. And it won't be the last, as far as Brent is concerned.
Hayden has a secret, though. Her father's company is relying on a merger to save them from financial ruin, and only Hayden's marriage to the CEO's wealthy son can secure the deal. If she's to protect her family, she'll have to forget about Brent - and he has no intention of being forgotten.

But parts were good.
My main problem was heroine stupidity. Twice she did something I couldn’t buy. In one of them someone does something bad to Brent and frames Hayden. When Brent confronts Hayden, she is surprised but does not deny it. She leaves him because he believed the evidence instead of trusting her. And then she does something unbelievable.
But I enjoyed the sex scenes.
I really liked the author’s first book “Protecting What’s His.”
The audiobook narrator Alice Chapman was fine.
Genre: contemporary romance
I am a wife, mother, friend, teacher, technology coordinator, and avid reader of both audio and print books.
Fun, sexy, and engaging characters with sassy dialogue and good friends. What more could a girl ask for? Hope this helps.
you never lose your page & Alice Chapman does a good job

she does emotion & feelings well
yes Brent is good at screwing things up
