Sarabeth Lucking's life is turned upside down when the couples' retreat she works for winds up embroiled in the biggest scandal of the year.
With her reputation in tatters, she can't imagine things getting worse, until her former co-workers are rubbed out, and a bad-ass, ex-Army Ranger shows up hell-bent on protecting her. She shows him the door, perfectly content with letting him go find someone else to brood over. Right up until her car explodes into a ball of flames...
Gavin McClintock grew up on the streets of Edinburgh, so protecting Dr. Stick-Up-Her-Rear isn't on his bucket list. Still, a promise is a promise, and, after her brush with death, he's going to do whatever it takes to keep Sarabeth safe. When she finally sheds her librarian-in-mourning look in favor of a sexy new disguise, the revealing clothes and new hairdo bring out the spitfire she's been hiding beneath that shell of propriety. Maybe the doc isn't the only one in need of protection...

I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
Let me start by giving Julia Motyka 4 on the narration....the only reason I don't give her the the full 5 points is because at times I could hear her taking big breaths as she narrated... But otherwise... She was great!
As for the book.... It was the perfect blend of action, humor & romance.
The hero was just the best of both alpha & sweet. What got on my nerve with him was his belief that he was not 'good enough' but he knew how to take what he wanted and cherish it... The heroine was scared of the future.... & I wouldn't blame her, her grandparents were just so well horrible & her life literally blew up in her face...... But slowly as she tries to get her life back, she learns to appreciate herself & how to love completely! It was just the perfect relationship that had my heart melting by the end!
Definitely a fun listen for any romantic hearts out there!
When the mafia is involved, there's just no way it can be this simple. Surprise, another unrealistic romance. And yet, for a light summer read, that promises hotness it's still enjoyable.
Loved how author gave us a view into both their minds. story has a lot of fun banter as well as fast-paced action and vivid descriptions. I found the narrator did a fantastic job in separating characters as well as placing emphasis were needed. They are the best people for rack other.
Though don't let her cook or him buy you clothing :)
I am going to have to go back and find Owen and Lindsey's story now. And I really hope Maddy's story is next.
Yes, I would listen again to this title because Julia Motyka did a fabulous job of narration. Her characters were distinctive and she did great with Gavin's accent.
The confrontation scene with the mob, Gavin, Maddie and Sarabeth stays in mind as memorable because each one of the characters were clear and well played as they faced off in a finale' of good versus evil.
Maddie was a favorite character for me even though she is only a secondary character. When she was "on the page" I found myself listening to her. She was strong, independent and smart.
If I had the time to listen to any audiobook in one sitting, this would be an easy one for me to listen to because it was fast paced and smoothly plotted.
