How do you get revenge on a dead man?
In this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, life-long good girl Paige Tipton learns what her dead husband was doing, for years, while she bent over backwards to try to please him. And she hopes Jeffrey is watching from hell when she finds some long-haired biker dude and does with him what Jeffrey did with all those hookers. Besides, a guy she finds at a creepy dive bar will never, ever pop up in her upscale real life. Now, if she can only get the biker to cooperate.
Dillon spots Country Club the moment she walks into the D.O.A. He's always had a weakness for these debutante types. The last time he gave in to it, at 15, he and his housekeeper mom lost everything. But this woman is cute as hell and really funny - especially when she offers him 40 bucks for sex, considering he's a very rich man now. But her kind is the last thing he needs in his life. Tempting as she is, surely he's learned something in all these years. Right?

I loved this book. It hits all the sweet spots when you're looking for a good romance, you connect to the characters, cry and laugh, and blush all the way through. There was something deeper about the story that is very refreshing, I think it's the way there characters thoughts and feelings are portrayed in a very believable way.
The narration is well done with enough difference between the intonation and voices for different characters, that it was very easy to listen to. Overall, very happy with it! Especially for the price, I would have been happy to pay more! :)
I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that a fiction book was not realistic...come on now 'really'
My first book by Nina Cordoba. I loved it. This book is funny, sexy, angst, funny, a little heartbreaking, funny, hot-hot-hot adonis.
Paige was born and raised in a sheltered, snob, country club life. Her husband was killed last year in a car accident. She gradually finds out that he was a sex addict and went to hookers several times a day. So to get even with her husband from the grave Paige decides to go out-of-character and have a one night stand.
She goes to a dive bar named, D.O.A., in the next town so she wont' be spotted by the country clubbers. This is where she meets Dillon the adonis. Paige is a 'fish out of water' in this bar and her conversation with Dillon is HILARIOUS!
Without giving anything away:
- Paige has her one HOT night stand with Dillon
- They meet by chance a few months later and start dating
- Paige struggles between the confinements of her life style and dating a guy who's not only rich but of the proper social standing
- Paige also finds out many more devious acts her late husband has committed
It's great to see Paige go from being a naive, controlled, door mat to becoming a strong, self aware, confident woman.
I gave the story 4 stars because there was more inner dialogue with Paige struggling between her life style and Dillon than I cared for. It got a little irritating for me but not so much that I won't listen to this book again and again.
Susannah Jones gave an all emotions performance; male and female voices, many characters...great job!
I took a chance on this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Absolutely worth a credit.
I loved the way the reader could give the right moods for the things that were being said. When Paige was being catty every sentence dripped with it. When Paige just realized how bad things really were, the reader's voice conveyed the pain.
Not only did her husband betray her while alive, he managed to try to ruin her life after his death. Finding this out and everyone involved in the plan was a moment that I will not forget for a long time.
I loved when Paige found out that Dillon had spent a good portion of the night outside her house trying to figure out how to move things forward.
No. When I found out what her husband had done to her, I had to take some time to deal with the anguish that caused. I needed some time before I was ready to see how it resolved. Then I felt I had to get to the end to make sure there really was a HEA coming.
I really enjoy reading. I had only ever listened to audio books a couple of times. I find they move too slowly and I get distracted too easily. This was a great experience because from the very beginning the reader allowed me to hear everything going on for Paige.
