Three things make billionaire Jim Halcyon's to-do list: women, work...and more women. It's a perfect agenda for a rich shifter who has no problem letting his inner grizzly out to play. From the bright lights of Vegas, to the sophisticated action of New York - he's got the money and the power to do anything he wants.
Anything, except resist the lure of Lady Luck, an ancient copper coin he gambles yearly to possess. Jim is determined to regain control of the pretty penny, and damn if he'll let any bit of eye candy distract him from his goal. Not even the mesmerizing woman in the middle of the casino floor with the shimmering hair and enormous green eyes.
With a life-changing move ahead of her, Lillie's finagled a temporary layover en route to her future. She's got five days to soak in new experiences, and while Vegas is too big and shiny and loud for her shy bear self, she's eager to do this up right. It's the last chance she's got to let her hair down.
Until his challenge begins, Jim is more than willing to oblige Lillie's wish for a final fling. Only Lady Luck has some twists of fate planned for them both.

Love books. Can get lost in them and spend hours there.
I enjoyed this story. Will listen to more by this author.

Good however sometimes when narrators try to give the voice of the opposite sex to a character different from themselves it lacks authenticity.
Enjoyed the growth of Lily and the softening of Jim. I enjoyed the men's friendship antics.
It was a light-hearted romance with billionaire womanizer finding a sweet young thing he is not only attracted to but drawn to protect. She becomes stronger and he suddenly wants more than one night. The end is a surprise for both of them and a steamy but fun romance.
Nicely done again Ms. Arend. So very good for a shorter story!
I met these characters previously in another novel if listened to. I didn't know about this one. It still fit the characters so well and I enjoyed them so! looking forward to the next!
This was an interesting story. It was short so not full of filler moments but I would have liked it to be a bit longer as it would have developed the characters a little more. I liked Jim as a hero, he was strong, handsome, rich and sexy. I also liked Lillie's character. But again a bit underdeveloped. The chemistry was good between the two and yes they did like to have sex a lot of it. So this short story is not rated G by no means.
The story line and plot was good. I liked the little twist there at the end. And like I said if the story had been a little longer the characters and the story line could have been more developed, resulting in a much better story. There is a lot of dialogue throughout the story, and I like lots of dialogue. So that was a plus.
As for the narration, it was good I like Tatiana Sokolov a/k/a Tanya Eby. She does a good narration, the men sound like men. Everyone gets their own distinct voice and she reads with emotion.
I loved this book. the story line was unique and fun. a refreshing change to romance in the shifter world.
