They agreed on three months... but their love knew no boundaries.
Jack McLachlan is a winemaking magnate and easily one of Australia's most eligible bachelors. His success and wealth makes him no stranger to the complications of romantic relationships and that's why he goes to extreme measures to avoid the hassle. He prefers simplicity in the form of a beautiful female companion with no strings attached. He arranges relationships like business deals and they're always the same. No long term relationships. No real names.
It's his game and his rules. He's content to play as usual, but when Laurelyn Prescott enters his life, his strategy must change because this player is like none he's ever encountered. His world is turned on its head after he begins a three month affair with the beautiful American musician. Nothing goes according to plan and as he breaks more and more of his own rules for her, she's exceptionally close to becoming something he never thought possible. His ultimate game changer.

I've had this book in my library for a while now. I wish I had listened to it earlier. It's really a great book. The narration is excellent. OMG! It kept my attention from the first and now I can't wait to listen to the second. I also got the rest of this author's audible books. That's just how good the first one was. Just get it if you like a great romance book!
I thought this book was going to be another 50 shades spinoff. But I was pleasantly surprised. I was charming and romantic. I enjoyed every minute of it and will be reading the other book in the series.
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, it was very entertaining
I love the mind game they played with each other - very cute
They both played a great performance!
Hurt and sadness she felt when meeting her dad. I love how she can sing!!
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
yes, but got a problem with Robert Black's performance. He sounds mechanical or robotic. Now Bunny did a great job even with his voice. But yes, I could look past his voice. But the story is so good, I got past the narrators after while.
Through the entire book it has to be Laurelyn. She has the great southern accent. and she could come up with some great one liners. The best was this.."He was hotter than the devil's ass"," And oh Hell to the NO".. was also Good!
When he Jack Henry was so jealous, he was sure a hard core Alpha Male.. And there was a lot of that.
I loved when he took her to his parents home.
This book is good. No it was GREAT. It had so much in it and kept my attention and this couple was good together. And the ending, be prepared to get the second book. She leaves him. and he let Pride get in the way. And when she leaves, he loses her. They are great together, and I loved the story, but I would of loved to have more of a "BEDROOM" relationship. Oh it leaves you to think what you want. It was tender love. This is a good listen and don't forget to get the second one. Also, a third one is coming out. But Jack Henry, is one heck of man. He loves his Laurelyn. and they are really a great compliment to one another. So YES, I recommend this book, to all of us that love our great hot books.. minus the HOT, just a simmer.
I loved the story but I did not like the different accents the 2 narrators gave. Overall I was smiling during happy times and frowning during non happy times....In my opinion that makes for the best stories.
Perhaps for Australians the hard copy of this book would be better.
In this instance the they would have been far better to stay with original accent of the narrator rather than one that was so far from Australian it was embarrassing. However the story line was fantastic and I will suffer listening to the next one, because I would like to see where it goes and that I do not get the time to sit still and read a book :-)
Good series. Romance scenes were good, although I sometimes you got the impression that they did "it" every singe day and we know that is not believable. I enjoyed how the narrators were broken up and they both did a good job. I heard one opinion that they thought that the male character sounded a little nassly (? spelling), but I thought they did a great job--everyone is entitled to their opinion. Glad I don't have to wait on the second book--I immediately downloaded it.
I love the story but the narration isn't the best. It's not the worst I've heard but it doesn't draw me into the story.
I love Jack! He's so mysterious and sexy.
Monotone, kindergarten, bored
I could not stop listening from beginning to end. The story is dark, but at the same time beautiful and erotic. Life is not all flowers. The realistic writing of ugly and beautiful, pleasure and pain, human nature in it's good and bad. Wish there were more books like this. And the performers did a great job of portraying characters. Some books, not many but some deserve a special rating of 10 stars. This one certainly does.
When I read the description of this book, I was skeptical. It sounded along the lines of 50 Shades, which I hated (for me 50 Shades too graphic, and I felt it lacked a storyline). This book was so much better. I couldn't stop listening. I liked the narrators, and I thought the accents were well done. I completely recommend this book!
