Hendrix Caldwell wants nothing more than to revitalize the family bar and tear down every last reminder of his no-good father. But business isn't the only thing on his mind. An explosive encounter with a stranger at a charity masquerade is just the distraction he craves, with no names and no strings attached. For Hendrix, sex is casual, and love is a four-letter word. His commitment is to his brothers, his bar, and his bike. So why can't he stop thinking about the naughty Cinderella who rocked his world then left him - and her panties - behind?
Olivia Hemmingway knows that fairy tales are for little girls. Drowning in debt and hiding a shameful secret, she won't be saved by a knight in tattooed armor, no matter how mind-blowing their one-night stand may have been. Olivia never expects to meet her masked lover again. But when she takes a job at Hendrix Caldwell's bar, her sexy new boss seems all too familiar. And once the lights go out and the music is turned up, the sparks between them burn hotter than ever....
Contains mature themes.

I was disappointed in this book. I certainly expected more from the summary.
The hero good - great guy with a good heart. While the heroine was a total disaster. Over and over again she says she's supporting herself and has strength, but she cannot pay her bills, get over her last, or act like a freaking adult! So tired of hearing about her underwear with sayings on it and the butt rubbing - ugh! Total annoyance!!
Three sons, Hendrix, Morrison and Jagger, hot, good hearted and loved their mother hated their father. This is the oldest Hendrix and Olivia's (quirky sweet Olivia) story.
Never thinking he would wish to have a serious relationship Hendrix has a hot interlude with a woman in a closet at a masked cancer benefit. She lands up working at his bar needing extra money. At first not recognizing each other they fall for each other. There's some angst and fighting of feelings but eventually they fill in each other's lives.
Sweet, hot and romantic I highly recommend this story with a great audio. The male voice is perfect and so is the woman's. love to listen to them anytime with interesting voices with perfect use of emotion and timing
Get this book and you won't regret it...also the brothers Morrison and Jagger
Love listening to audio books.
This book is an erotic romance book, if you like Magic Mike you will like this.
Hendrix Caldwell is not looking for a relationship but when he takes the place of a friend for a charity masquerade, he has a one night stand and leaving nothing behind but her panties. He has no business getting involved but when a second chance comes walking in his door asking for a job, he is not one to throw caution to the wind, but he gets more than he bargained for and he wants nothing less, now he has to convince her that.
Olivia Hemmingway doesn't believe in happy ending, something always goes wrong but when she gets a disconnection bill she has no choice but to look for another job. She has no idea that her boss is her one night stand and he wants nothing more than to have more than one night.
Idk what everyone that said this book wasn't good was reading, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The chemistry between Hendrix and Olivia is through the roof. I cannot wait to read book two Morrison. Worth the credit, great read!!
I loved this first book in the Caldwell trilogy. The hero, Hendrix, is the oldest brother of the 3 Caldwells. They grew up in a dysfunctional family, with a wonderful mother and an alcoholic, abusive father. Their mother died a year ago and they are still grieving. They told the father to leave. Olivia (or Libby), is a recent graduate with a degree in social work. With a low paying starting salary and her car breaking down, she applies for a job at the Caldwell's bar. Incidentally, she doesn't realize that Hendrix is the guy she hooked up with at a masked charity ball. They start to have a relationship, but she is insecure because of trauma in the past and Hendrix has a doubt that he can be a long term kind of guy because of his father's example. The narration was great.
I have to say this was a really sweet story. The right balance of damsel in distress meets good guy making me yearn for my own. Love Lida's performance but Guy, he reads very slowly and without emotion. I really hope the next in the series isn't read by him as I can't wait to hear the rest of the Caldwell series!
The way the story started was so entertaining but the dialogue was bad, laughable at some moments. I loved the characters. Olivia's awkwardness made her very lovable, not the typical heroine in a romance novel. I did like the alpha male qualities that Hendrix had as well. This had great potential but the story just didn't capture me.
