Melina Parker prides herself on being a lady in public, but after she's dumped yet again for being a lady in the bedroom, she's ready to go back to school.
Determined to find her inner sex diva, she enlists her childhood friend, Max Dalton, to tutor her after hours.
Instead, she ends up in the wrong bed and gets a lesson in passion from Max's twin brother, Rhys Dalton, a man Melina's always secretly wanted but never thought she could have.

Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction.
But I couldn't get past how annoying the female lead was. Her constant internal dialog was kept spinning and whining and changing direction. It was like she had a multiple personality disorder. First she only wants to find someone she can help teach her how to be a good sex partner because her previous three partners told her she was basically a dud in the sack. Of course the fact that they didn't turn her on or even really try to didn't clue her into the fact that she was just with the wrong partners.
Then her friends talk her into approaching one of her hot male friends into showing her how to be good in bed. So of course after a lot of inner dialog, (a lot!), she does but ends up with the twin she is in love with vs the twin she is just friends with.
Of course he is in love with her and right from the beginning he tells her it's his dream come true to be with her. He finds her hot and sexy and he can't get enough of her. Does she think yay. I like him too now we can be together? No she is basically a jerk to him until practically the very end. More, and I mean way too much more inner dialogue about how he us being a jerk no she is being mislead or is due for a letdown. Blah blah endless blah instead of taking him at his word she is just mean and weird. I don't honestly know why he loved her.
Save your money unless you like supposedly intelligent women acting like a bratty angsty child
Hi My name is Rae and i love to read and also a very shy person.
Getting the chance to read with the audio. Never knew .listening to the audio book was AMAZING and good at the same time.
Getting to hear Ellen Lange voice Ry lol
Ry ,because she did a good thing trying to sound like a guy.
Overall this book made me laugh so hard. It was a good feeling.
Just take the time to read this book.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This was a fairly good story, but was bogged down by Melina's insecurities and whining. The book had potential to be great and I had hoped for a little more humor or even shock factor to make this story really pop, but sadly it falls short. I liked and hated the sex scenes, they start off sexy but manage to fall flat at the end. But overall this was a fairly cute story if you can get over Melinda, so if you're looking for a romance to get away from life, this one will do the trick. I probably won't continue on, but I see the author has a vampire series I might try. Narrator was pretty good.
such a cute love story and quite believable too. I loved that it was raw and funny all at the same time. definitely an author I'm going to enjoy.
Yes, it's a sexy contemporary romance you won't be able to put down!
When Max sent his twin brother Rhys to meet Melina in his place!
Melina! The narrator did a wonderful job with the character's voice.
Awesome job! Would definitely recommend this book!
I enjoyed this story. I read book 3 first so I knew where the book would end up, but I never thought the journey in between would be so addictive. Reese and Melina were both reserved in their own right but together they had the right chemical reaction.
The audiobook was great. I really enjoyed the narrator with this book as well. I love that she matched what I was thinking in my head to what the characters (down to the inflection in the voices) sound like.
By Virna DePaul maybe, but not Ellen Lange. I don't like the narrator and I think she really brought what could have been a cute book down. She reads in run on sentences, weird inflections (or lack of inflection if the situation calls for it). Also, it was really hard to tell the difference between spoke words and internal thoughts and at times between each character. There was little voice difference between the male and female characters.
Haven't gotten there yet. Having to force myself to finish this audio book b/c the narrator is so poor.
I think there are a lot of good narrators. Someone who understands what grammatical punctuation when reading a sentence means. Someone who can develop a different voice for each character. I have enjoyed books by Jill Redfield and Amanda Ronconi.
The setup for the story leaves it wide open for ongoing stories for the brother & the female leads group of friends. There is potential.
I think I would have liked this book better if I had read it instead of listening to it. The narrator really brought this book down.
Tell us about yourself!
It's definitely in my Top 10.
Reese. Although I really like Melina, I just loved Reese's temperament and his patience. He was just absolutely adorable.
This is the first time I've ever listened to her and at first I wasn't very sure of her as I thought her voice sounded too much like a teenager and sort of made the characters sound a bit young, but as the book went on, she grew on me and I really do like her a lot. Once I stopped hearing her as Wynona Ryder, I enjoyed her more.
Yes definitely, so much so that I immediately bought book 2 so as to carry on the fun.
Very well written and spaced out. I knew where I was at all times, with just enough description to fill my imagination but not overdone to bore me with details. A very well paced book. I thoroughly enjoyed it from begining to end.
