A Standalone Contemporary Romance from the NYT best-selling author of the Fixed Trilogy.
I'm good in a boardroom, but I'm better in the bedroom. Much better. I can charm the skirt off any woman in one encounter. I'll even give her an orgasm before I put her in a cab. Or three. No more or she'll start making plans for the future and I'm not into that. Or I wasn't until Genevive Fasbender. She's the first woman in five years that I want to spend the whole night with. And she's the first woman who's told me I'm not what she wants in a lover, even after multiple O's. She's brash and bold and stubborn as hell, and she doesn't believe it's possible to satisfy her. But I'm up for the challenge. And after an incident in my brother's office closet - a downright dirty incident - I think I'm just the guy to deliver.

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
Chandler, Chandler Chandler.... he's a real sweetheart - as the younger brother of Hudson Pierce he's got a lot to live up to because he's definitely living in big bro's shadow - but that's ok because at 25 he loves his life being a Pierce and working alongside Hudson. He's mentally in a good place right now with his new philosophy on life - he's a one and done Playboy but that's because he's fallen hard too many times in the past and has been hurt every time but he's really a softy at heart. So now he's happily playing the field with ABSOLUTELY no intention of falling again.... but then he meets 23 yr old Genevieve (aka Genny) who's British, beautiful, sexy, smart, ambitious, easy-going.. and a person who's going to rock Chandler's world.
It was lust at first sight quickly followed by sizzling chemistry and one night of bliss but whilst Chandler's eager for a repeat performance Genny lets him know how underwhelmed she was with his performance. That hit Chandler hard and he set about learning what Genny does like which turns out to be just what he's suddenly been envisioning doing to her too... a bit of kink.. which he happily and successfully fumbles his way through. However, when Chandler brings Genny home to meet the family for the weekend things don't quite go according to plan as big brother lays out some shocking facts, dictates rules and then ultimatums... facts, rules and ultimatums that Chandler simply can't ignore. But what will win out - his head or his heart and dare he trust the now very suspicious looking Genny?
This was a fun listen - told from Chandler's internal ramblings and comments to you during the listen and you can't help but fall for his charming innocent naive ways which caused him to plunge so deep so fast and then to mindlessly wreck it all. He's an ex self-confessed Playboy who somehow muddles his way through turning his life around. He's smart, sexy, charming, funny, humble, loveable, slightly quirky, light and unique - a character I loved like an adorable younger brother. We get to catch up on Alayna and Hudson's fraught family life now their twins are here, there's a face from the past who may be there to rock the boat and stir up trouble, there's humorous banter, some dirty talk and lots of sexcapades too. Joe Arden skilfully narrates this very enjoyable listen and didn't have any problems with the British accents of Genny, her Father and Brother.
Worth a credit? YES and I don't usually spend a credit on a book that's less than 7 hours long but, for Laurelin Paige, I do... and without any doubts too because I had every faith that she was going to deliver yet another one of her very creditworthy listens - and she didn't disappoint.
5 Crazy Ass Must Read/Listen Stars!!!!!
OMG! I was so excited to see that Chandler was getting his own story. I always found his character intriguing. So when I saw sign-ups to review, I jumped right on. However, I wasn't able to read it so using my monthly audible credit, I snatched up the audiobook and, viola, I listened to it instead. I'm so glad that I did because I believe that Chandler's character translated so much better with the help of the narrator, Joe Arden. He really brought Chandler to life for me.
I absolutely love Chandler! His, for lack of a better word, naiveté was endearing and had me quickly falling for him. Then he brought out the big guns with his domineering bedside manner and, whew, he had me wanting to jump into my 70 degree pool to cool off.
While this vastly different from the previous Fixed books that were wrought with drama and angst, this still had just enough that kept my earbuds glued in my ears. I liked that mood of the book stayed true to Chandler's character we got glimpses of before. While it's hard to rank the Fixed men on my BBF list, Chandler sits among them with his goofy antics and stern bedroom hand. (*fans self and sighs*).
Lauren Paige showed her versatility in writing with this book and has made me more a fan. I can't wait to see what she comes out with next.
I enjoyed this audiobook version very much. The story of Chandler and Ginny was sexy and kept my attention throughout. The only thing I didn't like is the voice of Ginny. It would have been more enjoyable with a second narrator.
I feel that the characters are very unique, if you read the fixed me book series or free me series before you might expect the male character to be dominance and strong headed. This is not the case in this book, okay maybe Chandler gets dominance sometimes, but mostly it is during sexual scenes. Chandler unlike his brother is easily influence by emotions and he is easily sway by the notion of love. Chandler struggle in this story is based on his desire to take up more responsibility in his family business so he can stop others from treating him as a mere brat. Due to his nature to fall in love easily and being hurt multiple times due to it, Chandler tries his best to not fall in love however when he falls in love with Genevieve he doubt every single action of hers and struggles with himself constantly to prevent himself from being emotionally attached to her.
Genevieve also comes from a rich family, however she seeks for independence and strives to survive using her own means instead of depending on her family money. However, as her father is very tradition, believing that females do not belong in the political or business world, she is determined to work her ass off to prove to her father that woman can be part of the business world and she wants her father to acknowledge her efforts and desire. Genevieve personality is completely different from Chandler, which what makes this story so interesting, During this story Chandler gets influence by Genevieve and slowly reveal his inner desire to actually want to contribute more to his family company. As Genevieve lifelong dream is to gain his father approval and to hold her own in the business world, Genevieve tries her best to ignore any attraction she felt towards Chandler. It is interesting to see how she mange to balance her feelings towards Chandler and work towards her goal at the same time. Due to her headstrong nature and her desire to be independence, Genevieve refuse to accept help from anyone including Chandler, however halfway through I manage to see her change slightly as she slowly start to accept Chandler help to achieve her goal.
Laurelin Paige is one of my favorite writers and she never disappoint. Even when Hudson will be my favorite book boyfriend forever Chandler was great, passionate, determine and so much father material the way he was with his niece...just lovely❤️
Genevieve Fasbender is determined to show her father that she is just as good at business as any man. She hatches a plan to get a lucrative Job at a company her father wants to do business with. Chandler Pierce is a man who never met women he didn't want to sleep with! He rich, handsome and always looking for his next one night stand. That is until he sees Genevieve at function and she doesn't give him the time of day. Chandler makes it his mission to win her over, she on the other hand is not impressed! An absolute must read. Smart, fun and sexy!
