I've always known she was too good for me, but that never stopped me from wanting her.
And then I finally had her for one night.
A night I don't remember.
I figured I'd blown my shot.
But now she's walked back into my life, and this time I have the upper hand. I want my second chance.
Will she be able to see the man beneath this ink?

Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
Meghan March knows how to write a romance that sizzles! These stories are extraordinarily written with fascinating characters who are multi-layered and grow as they fall in love. Their sexy and lustful inner dialogue, and banter between the H/h was so sweet, swoon worthy and brought a blush to my checks. Con was the perfect alpha male without being too dominate, and Vanessa was so much more than just a rich girl.
While things between Con and Vanessa were heating up, Con was searching for answer and on a path that could ultimately destroy any future these two could have. The suspense and the surprising plot twists, makes this so much more than a romance.
Arndt, and York's performance was fantastic, and I love how they bring the characters to life.
Loved this story, and look forward to the next in the series. The romance was SWEET, the sex scenes were HOT, and the plot and suspense were the perfect balance between light and dark. Definitely worth a credit!
Ok, I had already read this book when I saw that it was now on audible. When I saw the narrators I was excited!!!! Andi did GREAT as always and for the first time, I didn't like Sebastian's performance. He tried to do an accent and NO his voice needs nothing but the deep sex appeal that is natural. So I hope he never does this again. Other then that, I love the actual story. Read all three books and they are great. Can't wait for the next.
This is book two. It was as good, if not better, then book one. A few have complained that SY missed the mark on the accent. As a former NOLA resident I must disagree. He really did the accent justice. He had more of a Cajun flare not just a southern accent. This is more of what you will find from a lifelong resident of New Orleans. As far as the book itself goes, I thought it was excellent. The story takes place around the same time as book one. In fact in a few places the scenes overlap. Both narrators do a fantastic job and this book has made Megan March an automatic download for me. Go ahead and get it you won't be sorry!
This book would not be my first recommendation to friends. Beneath This Mask was so much better. Dont get me wrong, this book has sassy cute characters, dominance, jealousy, and an unexpected twist near the end, but overall, I just wasnt as into this one as the last. It didnt pull at my heartstrings the way Simon and Charlie's story did.
The ending was about what I expected. Although there were a couple chapters that had me questioning which way things could go, I felt the ending was ultimately expected and appropriate. This one didnt leave me with the desire to jump right into book 3.
I love Andi Arndt as a narrator and Sebastian York. They always do a fabulous job!
Really, no. This novel had a drastic increase in play by play sex and language over Beneath This Mask. The sex in book 1 was touching, beautiful, and left me emotional. Totally hot without feeling dirty. Cons hard life lead this book straight down the path most alpha male erotica books head for. I felt the first book was more respectable and probably would have more movie potential than this one.
Liked this one a lot! Andi and Sebastian could read the phone book and I'd listen! Con was much more likable in this one than the glimpse of him we got in book 1. I really didn't like Lukas, which makes me wonder how I'll feel about him in his story. Overall, good storyline, good listen!
A complete thrill, it seemed like it had 2hrs in total - so strongly involved in the story, time flew by. You just can't wait to see what happens next.
He was a bad boy, crass and rowdy. As gorgeous outside as he is inside. She was a lady, high society girl with her own issues and sadness. Never having been loved by what she was, not even by her parents who had always wanted the perfect daughter.
Many things happens, ups and downs, murders, blackmailing, car jacking, robbery but the plot reveals a different side of every character. Surprises, surprises...
Just loved every scene they were together! Loved everything...
The narrators were just perfect.
Best book of the year, and I listen to many, many, books.
Worth every cent!!
Congratulations Meghan March, I will read/listen to your books from now on...
There aren't enough words to express my love for this story and the performances given by Andi and Sebastian that brought the words of it to life! The plot itself was enough to be a heart stopping story, but add in the toe curling steam and bone shattering love of Vanessa and Con, and you have a story that will stick with you long after the last words are spoken!
Next step, purchase and listen to the rest of this series...NOW!!
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
The love story between Con and Vanessa is a hot one. Both characters felt attraction which of course was denied for years until fate brought them together again. This listen is filled with gritty love scenes between the two. Sebastian York's performance is perfect for Con.
Con is believable as very strong male attracted to the woman he imagines is better than he is because she was born into a world of wealth they both shared. He was adopted into it.
Vanessa is torn between the expectations of her family and what she wants. The strong female performance makes her plight believable as well.
In the end they find that neither has a grasp of what really matters and the find a HEA despite family betrayal, scandal and another male interested in Vanessa.
Credit worthy and sale worthy.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Handsome, tattooed and pierced Con had problems.... he was looking for a killer, he had a chip on his shoulder, a 'one night and done' attitude towards women and he fantasised over the one hot drunken night that he couldn't remember with the one woman that he couldn't forget - Vanessa. And now here she was back in his life, two years later, asking for a favor so he took it as fate giving him another chance to have a 'do over' night and this time he was going to remember every second.... yeah he was sure it wasn't going to last, yeah he was sure it was going to be difficult thawing the ice between them but yeah he was sure and confident after the steamy looks she'd given him that he'd do it and most of all he was very sure that they were both going to enjoy it.
There was instant chemistry and lust-filled glares but they'd vaguely known each other for years and had stubbornly ignored each other as each of them thought the other one was way out of their league.... Con thought she was a pampered, spoiled, beautiful Princess and Vanessa thought he was so sexy and handsome that he wouldn't be interested in her which led to a push/pull relationship. However, now she needed something from him so Con came up with a plan and a bargain to get his one night with her..... but it backfired and slowly proved each of their previous doubts and misconceptions about each other were totally wrong.
And, along the way new friendships were formed, a mystery was solved, a greedy traitor and puppet master to mass murders was found, there was a bloody carjacking that left someone fighting for their life, a twist or two and a manipulative blackmailer had a heart after all. However, through it all Con and Vanessa's relationship grew steadier, well there were fiery heated words and digs, but the sizzling chemistry, shared secrets, passion and Alpha led sex soon doused the anger, doused any doubts and doused the fears of tomorrow. Which led to character growth, mutual trust and respect, love and a very sweet Epilogue.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, good narration, great characters, a hot Alpha hero and an addictive plot that had tension, drama, angst, passion, sex and romance which all added up to an unstoppable listen and a HEA which finally released me in the wee small hours so I could get a few hours of sleep before a new day dawned. So, YEAH it was very creditworthy, could be listened to as a stand alone (but why deprive yourselves of book 1?) and I'm eagerly looking forward to Lord's story which is the next book in this fantastic series.
"One of the best"
