Billionaire businessman, Cal Sellers had the only woman he's ever loved, but with one careless, arrogant act, he lost her. Now as she stands in his office begging for her old job back, he has no intention of losing her again - or hiring her. He has an altogether different position to offer her....
Lucy Monroe will do anything to protect her daughter and stay as far away from her vicious ex-husband as she can - even if it means marrying the no good, egotistical man who broke her heart, Cal Sellers.
Determined to make up for the past, Cal pulls out all the stops to woe and protect Lucy while showing her they can have more than a passionate marriage of convenience. But with her ex becoming dangerously violent, will Cal's love and security be enough to save them all?

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Cal's a successful Billionaire owning the Pleasures At Home sex toy Shopping Channel and other businesses but 2 years ago he was a very different person. He was an arrogant playboy and he didn't know love until she was running out the door after catching his sorry two-timing ass with his secretary. Since then he has had a chance to reflect, regret and grow up but he still yearns for his lost love.... Lucy. Lucy ran out on Cal and straight into the arms of another man..... unfortunately he turned out to be a bigamist and a physical and mental abuser (as told in book 1). Lucy's now separated and is desperate, she has a small baby to look after and is still being threatened by her abusive ex so she turns to the one man she never wanted to see again but the only man that can help her now.
When they meet the attraction's still there but Cal realises Lucy is coming from a very different place now because she's been so abused, traumatised and mentally/physically damaged that learning to trust him again isn't going to be easy and may even be impossible. He feels guilt, remorse and is sickened by all that Lucy has been through but he's going to give it everything he's got because he thinks she's worth it and so starts a very heartbreaking story of lost love and second chances.
There's drama supplied by the bitter ex and a jealous bystander who makes an already difficult and tense situation even more harrowing. Cal's a great hero, he's thoughtful, kind, very sympathetic as to just how to, and how not to, talk and treat Lucy and Lucy's been through Hell but doesn't know if she'll ever be able to trust, or be intimate with a man, again. If anyone can heal her scars it's going to be Cal..... as long as he doesn't break her heart again.
Dual POV's, great narrator who made all the anguish, heartache, suspense, thrills, hot sex, sweet romance and the two loveable damaged main characters all come to life.
Worth a credit? This is turning out to be a great series, each book could be a standalone listen and yes, IMHO, very creditworthy.
Great listening! I have known about Lucy and Cal in the previous book, Rush which I loved but this story is as good or even better! Lucy and Cal have great chemistry between them and Poppy is an amazing baby! Love scenes are very hot and there is also some suspense and action. I would love to read about Lucas's sister and the new director of Pleasures at home! Highly enjoyable!
Cal love for this broke woman. I have to say I could tell at the end of the second book he was a good person. I have to admit he messed up a few times but what she went through made me cry and hurt for her. The way he helps her heal was so loving. I also love how they were together with there daughter. I enjoyed this one more than the first book and hope there will be third.
Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
I actually really liked Cal And Lucy. I enjoyed watching them come together and build trust. I wished Cal was a bit more alpha. He was described as an alpha shark in business but didn't see that at all.
Overall I really enjoyed the story. I liked this one better than the first book in the series. I have a feeling I know who the 3rd book will be about if there is a 3rd book but I can't imagine what drama they would have to deal with.
The ending was kinda abrupt NOT a cliffhanger at all but not satisfying. I got the feeling that there was a HEA but I didn't get the words. I didn't get to see one day of what their "normal" was. An epilogue would have been nice to give us a snippet a few months or so down the line. Just something to give us that closure.
