Publisher's Summary

Lou just needs someone to take her away. It doesn't matter if she knows his name. Or if he knows hers.

Actually, it's better if he doesn't know hers.

At least, that's what she tells herself when she's sticking her tongue down the throat of the sexy handyman she just met at her new job.

Her father's dead. Her family's fortune is gone. And - oh yeah - she's assumed a false identity so she could get a position at Huntington Manor, the luxury tourist attraction that was once her family's estate. Nobody here knows that she's Louisa Cunningham, former heiress and current complicated head case. To them she's just Addison Thomas, assistant to the hotel's general manager.

Well, except to handyman Ward Brannon. To him, she's the strange, but intoxicating, new girl who tried to have sex with him without even knowing his name.

Ward is everything Lou knows she should stay away from. He's a playboy. He's constantly getting in fights. And he resents her family for reasons she doesn't understand. But, in spite of herself, she can't stay away from him, even when that puts her secret at risk. Even when it becomes increasingly clear that he harbors a few secrets of his own.

    "Sexy and Dysfunctional Characters"

    This was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't sure what I was getting into, since it's the third book in a series and I haven't read the two preceding books. It worked well as a standalone and I'm considering going back to purchase the first two.

    The story was interesting while still being realistic. The main character is completely unpredictable, so it made for a fun ride. The narrator was a little 'rough' sounding...I might think twice about getting the other books in the series if it's the same narrator. Otherwise, a fun, sexy new adult read.

    I was provided with a free copy of this audio book by the author, publisher or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "You need to read books 1 and 2 ..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wouldn't necessarily change anything about the book but I would recommend reading books 1 and 2 first in order not to be lost. I didn't and I found it hard to follow along at points. What did her father do to lose the money? What was her life before this?


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable ... leads into book 4 which I had trouble getting into.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If Lou and Ward would have gotten to know each other before sleeping together. Yes, I realize that the whole running away/bad girl was Lou's way but I didn't care for it.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator, Ms. Goer, did an adequate job with the narration but I didn't care for the book so I couldn't get into it.

    "I love the series."
    Where does Her Wicked Heart: The Cunningham Family, Book 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think it rates at a 3. I'm having to shift gears and read about Calder's
    sister.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the back story of the Cunningham Family.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Beth Goer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sarah Beth is a great performer with this story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I felt like I was experiencing
    the sadness and anger and finally say good bye to her former
    home and life. Louisa Cunningham is a really lovely character and
    Read the rest of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given this audio book free for my honest.opinion.

    Story
    "Shenanigans"

    Narration - Sarah Beth Goer - Pretty Good. This is the second book I've listened to that Sarah narrated and she's getting better with each title she narrates.

    Now the book? Well, I liked it. Did I like all the characters? NO! Lou (our heroine) about drove me off the deep end. She starts off by running from Ian and comes back to her childhood home under another identity to try to get a job. She's hired as the manager's assistant just as they are putting the finishing touches on the conversion of the estate into a luxury tourist attraction. She's JUST been hired and has barely made it to her room when she's got her tongue down another guys throat! OK, so that's not really what drove me off the deep end. She could easily be crowned the queen of Blue Ballsia! There are hmmm...I don't know...four, maybe five scenes where she's all over either Ward or Ian, getting them all riled up, ready to play hide the salami and she puts a screeching halt to it, telling them "I can't do this"

    But then again? Blue Ballsia once, shame on you, Blue Ballsia twice, and then thrice, shame on me. So maybe Ward and Ian are the bigger clunk heads!

    I never really understood what she hoped to accomplish by going back to her childhood home. She realized that there was nothing she could do to stop what was happening. She did engage in quite a bit of shenanigans of which I'm still uncertain how she wasn't busted.

    I didn't realize this was the third book in a series, so it works as a stand-alone. If you like a lot of drama and some humorous shenanigans, then, I think you will enjoy this book.

    "Didn't really grab me"

    STORY REVIEW......
    The story was okay but I didn't like the lead female character at all. She was just rather needy and pathetic. I just could not relate to her at all.


    AUDIO REVIEW......
    I did not like the sound of this woman's voice at all. The tone and the delivery was way to annoying. It made the story hard to listen to. In fact I kept walking away from less listening to it. Making it seem like it took for ever to get over with.

    Story
    "I'm no longer spoiled"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story was fun. You follow Louisa and see how her life is no longer roses and sunshine since her family has lost their money.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Her Wicked Heart: A Cunningham Family Novel?

    When she was stealing the wine, I laughed at how she finally got to try the wine and guess what, it sucked!


    Which character – as performed by Sarah Beth Goer – was your favorite?

    Had to be Louisa, the book is from her point of view. She gave the character life to me while I was listening.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at a lot of it. I now want to go back and hear the first two in the series so parts of it will make sense.


    Any additional comments?

    "Another Wicked story!"

    --I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    This being the third book in the Cunningham Family series, I was glad I listened to the other two first. While,this could be a stand alone novel, it was helpful to have the background from Calder and Lily, making this much more fun and interesting. I didn't have a feeling about what to expect from Lou, she was Calder's sister who left right after her dad died and was much the philanthropist. Couldn't be more wrong. While it took me a while to warm up to her, and the issues of her dealing with her loss(es), I eventually began to really like her. Ian I found to be sweet but pathetic. He really got on my nerves, but Ward....loved him. He was a very complex character, you learn a lot of his sides and understand his ways of thinking.

    Sara Beth Goer did a wondeful job portraying this book. Her rendition of Lou in all of her complicated sides made her believable. I couldn't believe the book was over, a very fast 7-1/2 hours.

    And the cliffhanger...Can't wait for Lost and Found to be out so I can continue this audio adventure!

    "Entertaining Easy Listen Warning:Some Naughty Bits"


    Louisa ( Lou ) comes from a very wealthy family, however the beautiful estate was sold to cover debt when her family's wealth disappeared. Now, she is forced to work as an assistant at her families former estate which has now become a tourist attraction. She has taken on a new name as well, Addison Thomas.

    Her only way of dealing with her new circumstances is with physical contact, the first day on her job she kisses the handyman with great passion. She doesn't know his name and he doesn't know hers…

    Ward, the handyman, has secrets of his own that make him angry and frustrated with people of wealth and privilege.

    Will be unlikely pair get to know each other? Will it move beyond the physical tension they feel toward one another? What are the secrets and when will they be exposed?

    The narrator was exceptional. This is the second book that I have listened to by Sarah Beth Goer her and she is very good. The 7.5 hours flew by! I will listen to her performances in the future if given the chance.

    I received this book in exchange for my review. When I received the recording I did not realize that it was part of the series. I may seek out the first two books as they are available at audible.

    Notes:mature themes & some strong language
