That is, until Gabrielle and Dell find themselves competing against each other for the account at a wilderness survival weekend. Since he's in touch with the great outdoors, Dell figures that naturally extends to Gabrielle and those sexy legs of hers. But Gabrielle has a few tricks up her sleeve.
And nothing stimulates a sexual appetite like a little fresh air, a tiny little tent, and a whole lot of libido!

This is a story of an office romance between Dell and Gabby, two marketing account managers that want the same big sporting company account. They find themselves competing in a wilderness survival challenge in order to determine who will get the account. Though Dell clearly has the advantage to win, the author of this book does a great job of using Dell's brawn, Gabby's smarts and dumb luck circumstances to help even out the competition. In fact, this author goes to great length to be unpredictable - even before the competition begins. It really made the story most interesting, and kept me listening well past bedtime. Dell & Gabby made a great couple (with some serious passion and heat being exchanged between these two), and the secondary characters were also interesting and added to mayhem and fun. This is my first book by this author, and I will search out more. Overall, it was a light, funny, sexy and unpredictable book. The naration was really good too! For a HQN Blaze book, I was impressed.
I read this book the first time around and when I saw it available in audible--had to listen to it! It's fun, full of surprises and makes the underdog vs. champion relationship between Dell and Gabby so believable, sexy and full of charge. I can't wait to find more books by this author.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Gabby and Dell share an outdoor adventure to try and outdo each other to get an account. Gabby was totally prepared, however Dell was there on his looks, and as part of the good ole boys club. It gets laugh out loud funny, with a series of accidents, mishaps, miss steps.
Who finally wins?
I thoroughly enjoyed this misadventure.
I'm a single mom and architect & to avoid boredom bought a fixer-upper so I LOVE Audible, it is the only way I get to enjoy a book anymore!!
This was light but fun. It is an enjoyable story of changing your life by using your brains and preparedness! Enjoyable!
Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
A servicable romance in most respects but it's a little skimpy on the passionate payoff at the end. But fun.
I love books, it's my great escape.
I really liked this story. Gabbie will have you laughing out loud. This is a short story so things move along pretty quickly but it does not detract from the romance between Gabbie and Del. It's simply a very good story with the right amount of spice. I will be looking for more from this author. I already like the narrator who does a good job with this one too.
Live, love, laugh...
This was a nice short listen. The story is quite funny, touching, steamy and entertaining. And I LOVED the ending! I would definitely look for more books by Stephanie Bond in the future.
Narration: Elena Stauffer is an ok narrator but many times she struggled with male voices. You could actually feel the strain in her voice.
Say something about yourself!
I usually enjoy Harlequin stories, and the writing was decent.
I would recommend the book, but would suggest they read it, rather than listening to it.
Her voice just isn't good for narration, in my opinion. She sounds too little girlish and read in this breathless voice that was obnoxious.
No, no extreme reactions.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I enjoyed this story for it's adventure. Not super thrilled with the main guy character, he was kinda a jerk. But worth the price.
Say something about yourself!
Her nasal voice made the male lead sound like a little boy with a cold. Gave all the charaters a nasal sounding voice. Loved the story.
