Their eyes first met across a crowded Georgetown bar, and an unexpected magnetism kept them together. There with her friends, Kiera Ward never expected the handsome, debonair man to be attracted to her, but Axel Thorpe had eyes for no other. With common interests, goals, and an intense physical charisma, they quickly fell in love. But a careless and perhaps misunderstood proposal by Axel drove a wedge between them. What had been a passionate and promising relationship for Kiera shattered into painful betrayal.
Now, six years later, Kiera is working for The Thorpe Group. No longer just a promising young student, she has become a sought-after attorney - a rising star. There's only one problem: Can she stand being in such close proximity to Axel Thorpe?

I would listen to this again if I had no other books to hear. I enjoyed this a lot. I recommend it as a nice story to listen to on a Saturday evening.
I really dig this series. It is great seeing all the brothers find love, pretty much at the same time!! This book is a reunited lovers trope, love that!!!! We get a flashback to college days and just meeting. Mix in a little of them together, and wham the big break up! Fast forward to the present again.
I adore sassy Kiera, she totally stands up for herself. There are many times I wanted to smack clueless Axel in the head. Hello, she is not a wimp, she can handle business!! Once he started having faith in her abilities, he won me over.
Little bit of yummy smexy time. Open bedroom door but not full erotic detail. Plenty of steam though to warm a reader up! For a short read you do get a few helpings of scrumptious smexing!
The narrative is mixed, and good thing for that, cause without hearing Axel's thought process you might think he is a chauvinistic jerk. No, he is just a touch clueless and self absorbed. Kiera will break him of that! Again, we have a few stray POV from the supporting cast, a little less jumpy, but it takes you out of the moment.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Viv Williams, who is a delight! I love her energy and the sassy tone she gives Kiera. Her pace is swift and steady, love that! All the voices stayed consistent and distinct. She does a fabulous job of keeping it clear who is in charge of the narrative. This is something she excels at! Terrific read all around!
I am ready to see what happens in the next book!! Will it be Riker and Cricket or Xander and Autumn. I hope they release in audio soon!!!
