After growing up dirt poor in a seedy Chicago neighborhood, Matt Tremont seemingly has it all now - brains, brawn, and billions. And, most importantly, Noah, his five-year-old son, the one good outcome of a disastrous relationship that destroyed his last ounce of trust. The only thing he's lacking is the perfect nanny for his son. And Ariana Jones is absolute perfection. Utterly enchanting. Completely fascinating. And totally off limits.
Like a match made in heaven, this is Ari's dream job. Swallowed up in the foster care system after losing her brother and mother, Ari has always dreamed of family. She showers five-year-old Noah with all the love she's kept bottled up inside. Love she could also offer to her gorgeous billionaire boss - if only he weren't the very last man she could ever hope to have.
But when sizzling sparks of attraction turn into a forbidden, sinfully hot night of pleasure, will Ari's love be enough to make Matt forget the past and love fearlessly?

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
Ahhh and sigh... as another sexy Maverick Billionaire is taken off the market in a very addictive plot that has single Dad Matt falling for Ari - his son's super sweet and super sexy Nanny. Ari has been around the Mavericks for some time now and was taken under Daniel's wing but she's offered the job of a lifetime as a live in Nanny - living in an impressive mansion, looking after Noah the sweetest 5 yr old, at a salary to die for.... and all while getting to know, and drooling over, Noah's oh so hot and handsome Dad. Ari had gone through a terrible childhood which forced her into bad Foster Care situations... and, although that's left its mark, she's loving and ever hopeful of finding that missing piece in her life... family. Matt (and the rest of the Mavericks) have also had terrible childhoods - Matt is haunted by his past and still hears those long ago hurtful vicious taunts that his Father used to constantly toss his way.
Matt's a great Dad - he's kind, patient, loving and very protective over his precious son always wanting the very best for Noah and he seems to have found the perfect Nanny for Noah. Matt thinks Ari's such a joy to have around with her positive attitude, caring ways... and she's beautiful inside as well as out too - so there shouldn't be any problems right? Well, from the moment he first met Ari, he's been captivated by her and the sexual chemistry between them is getting intense - which he just can't have - so Matt mentally promises that his son's Nanny is strictly off limits (yeah right). Ari is loving her job but more and more she daydreams about Matt who is constantly surprising her with his gentle ways and understanding nature - but he's strictly off limits and anyway he's so handsome, hot and humble that he could have anyone he wants. However, she's seen the way he looks at her - and before she knows it Ari's comforting Matt, kissing him and spend one night of bliss in his bed - but by morning Matt's barriers are firmly back up. Despite this, the desire between them only heightens and intensifies so it's not long before resistance becomes futile.... but ahead there's angst, bitter self-loathing and broken hearts.
Loved loved loved this very enjoyable and addictive dual POV story that's filled with awesome characters, strained emotions, intense feelings and sexy scenes but hurtful memories from Ari and Matt's pasts try to steal their futures. Great secondary characters, a destructive ex and a long lost Brother also make appearances. But the accolades go to the writing team of Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully whose joint collaboration created such a sweet, sexy and sumptuous storyline which was brought to life by a very talented narrator who has my undying gratitude for her wonderful work on this.
Worth a credit? Oh boy YES - I love and respect these passionate Billionaires - they're close friends from childhood and each one of them has tragedy in their pasts and have come from nothing and yet they've each risen to become the powerful and confident members of the Mavericks - a tight brotherhood of supportive loving friends. They're hard and complex nuts to crack but the lucky women who break through and steal their hearts are loved unconditionally, bedded continuously and surely know they're very very lucky women.
Mom of three and a full time job who enjoys reading but doesn't have time. This is perfect: plug in my headphones and I'm on my way.
I gave it a chance and was disappointed not for the story line but the narration- I got lost so many times not knowing which character was speaking and the third person thing got to me too. I would had loved if the male narrator would had join in. I kept going since I wanted to see what would happen next but I had to stop since the narration was bad. I will buy the book and read it myself.
Don't get me wrong, I adore Bella Andre and she is my go-to author when I want something less suspenseful and a bit on the lighter side, however, even though I thought the heroine was great, I thought Matt came off a bit weak (except in bed) and the plot was so much less dynamic and exciting than anything I have listened to by her and I believe I have everything of hers out in audio. The storyline was okay but didn't come close to living up to her normal standard of excellence.
Eva Kaminsky's narration was, as always, superb.
