Free-spirited Lucy Conrad enjoys her friends but keeps others at a distance, especially her affluent and judgmental family...and the billionaire she once dated, Jamie Whitcomb. Despite their explosive chemistry, experience has proven she'll never fit into his world.
Charismatic Jamie enjoys work, women, and wealth. When duty demands he take over running the family business, he jumps in full throttle; his only regret is Lucy's refusal to take the ride with him.
Then tragedy strikes, and Lucy realizes that in order to gain custody of her orphaned niece, she must prove she can fit back into the high-society world she once rejected. The solution? Accept Jamie's make-believe marriage proposal, and be seen as the type of mother her niece deserves. Respectable. Controlled. Willing to play the game.
With her faux-fiancé by her side, Lucy exchanges dirty martinis and leather for champagne and silk. But when the passion between Lucy and Jamie only grows greater, they have to make a choice: back away from each other and not get hurt...or risk everything for the kind of love money can't buy.

This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last! Love, love, love this book. Great story line and build up if characters and their backgrounds ❤️❤️❤️
Say something about yourself!
This is a great story about a woman that teaches others to be yourself and to do what you want to be and be who you want to be, yet she doesn't believe really that she is right for the person she wants to be with.
Any of the dare books
No this was my first and I wouldn't mind reading others.
When Lucy's sister was in the hospital and Jamie just moved and helped her to get to her sister,and family and was there for her.
This was a great read/listen. The narrator was great. I would recommend.
I enjoy when a narrator matches the author's vision and voice of a story. Even though this is the 3rd book in a series, it was my first listen/read by this author. This book is able to be listened/read as a standalone. I enjoyed it so much I am going back and reading/ listening to books 1 and 2.
This story is sweet and spicy. Jamie reminds me of Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones. Lucy keeps fighting against the grain for what she wants. Both have a lesson to learn.

Yes I would. This was a very good, strong story. The narrator spoke very clearly.
I liked that Jamie didn't give up on Lucy no matter what. He didn't pressure her, or push her. The romance was there but it was not rushed.
I have never listened to this narrator before but she does a great job.
Yes it was and I did
Fantastic strong story line and I am now going to read the other books in this series.
Descriptive, nervewrecking, beautiful
My memory is not so great that I can think of a specific book. This book is like a contemporary in the sense of the story, but has very explicit sex scenes.
I don't believe I have listened to anything by Ellen Lange, but then I am just getting started on listening to audible books. I loved that she was able to change her voice with each character.
Lucy kind of drove me crazy with her inability to commit to anything. Other than that I really enjoyed the story. It had some laugh-out-loud moments!
I highly recommend this book. I look forward to listening to more audibles in this series and by this narrator.
This was a new to me author that I will definitely listen to more from. The narrator's voice was one of the best I've listened to. I started with book three which stands alone but I want to go back and hear her friends stories.
