Carter Billings: With sandy blond hair and Hollywood good looks, Carter could have any woman he wants. When he makes his bid for governor of California, he knows he must settle down and become a family man. His choice for a running mate between the sheets: matchmaker Eliza Havens.
Eliza Havens: Eliza’s happy that her best friend has a wealthy, adoring husband. It’s the husband’s best friend - sexy, dashing Carter Billings - that drives her crazy. No man has ever squabbled with Eliza this much…or made her heart race this fast. Matching couples is how she earns a living, but long-held secrets mean getting married isn’t an option. Until now.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
I like the fresh plot. Though the romance formula is in tact, Bybee offers and interesting plot in this second of a series. Also, she does a good job laying the groundwork for follow-ons. This novel is self contained, as was Book 1. This series creates a universe and a set of woman within the universe. After listening to two, it is clear where she is going but I think the plot lines will have enough variety to keep one interested.
As a critique I would liked to have amped up the conflict. I also would have liked to see a little more depth from Eliza -- all in all, a nice listen. Pull up a chair near the fire, surf the web on you iPad and listen away. Eby does a good job narrating. I give it a thumbs up.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Married by Monday: Weekday Brides, Book 2 is a very entertaining romance with enjoyable characters, most of whom we met in Book 1. My only disappointment is that audible does not have book 3 in their store.
Book 1 and 2 are the only Catherine Bybee books that I have ever had the pleasure of listening. Her characters are endearing, and the story is lighthearted, while also engaging. If you are in the mood for a fun read, this novel will provide.
Definitely credit worthy!
I really enjoyed this book. The hero, Carter aka Hollywood was handsome, smart and sexy. The heroine Eliza was strong and witty.
I really like the story line and her secret, (don't want to spoil anything so I won't tell the secret). There was fantastic dialogue throughout, sexual tension, great chemistry, nicely written sex scenes and the whole story flowed very nicely.
An easy to follow enjoyable read/listen. I really like this author's writing style. And her books are not rated G and not rated XX.
As for the narrator, she did a really great job and I like listening to her. The men sounded like men and all the characters had their own distinct voice so you knew who was speaking.
I though the book was going to be light romance novel as the first one but the twist and suspense kept me on the edge until the end. I like the twist of the story line compare to the first book. The narrator did well and it was definitely worth the credit.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I like book 1 better. They seem to fall in love way to easily. This should have been better, because we meet both characters in book one. There should have been more of a back-story I think from book one to seem believable of these characters falling in love so fast.
I did love the female leads history though... Crazy family life, she was in the witness protection... that was awesome.. but lead male was just crazy about her.. way too soon.
Credit not a buy. Eby did a great job narrating.
♥♥Hooked on Audio Books♥♥
Loved how this one continues the story of Sam and Blake along with the blooming relationship of Eliza and Carter. Can't wait to read more to see what happens next.
Former Waitress, Chargeback clerk, Clown, Florist owner, Clergy. Love series, humor, twists, history, mysteries, not into witches/bondage.
I read too many to place it. In the romance category it had a interesting plot in which some very interesting life questions are ask.
Can't give the plot away, but there are several. The bar fight was memorable
She did a great job of giving all the characters life.
Life is a journey and full of changes.
This book held my interest. I was ok with the erotic, but felt that some of them were too extended and put in just to fill in pages. I loved the twists and turns and many ways the people were real to their situations.
Will do anything for books!
This is a fun and sweet light hearted story. A little drama, a little steamy and a lot of fun romance. Good story. Good series. I'd recommend, either I got used to the narrator or she got a little better. I would really recommend this one for a fun read.
I have read this series enjoyed each one of Catherine Bybee's books
a different storyline just fun books.
This story picks up two years after book one (Wife by Wednesday) and is well done! Love the lighthearted romance and “tough as nails” Eliza/Lisa. I also enjoyed the reappearance of characters from book one and I am glad that the characters remained the same (Their personalities didn't change in book 2). I am looking forward to book 3 in August 2013.
Re Narrator: I haven’t listened to an Eby book that I didn’t enjoy!
