It was New Year's Eve, and I should've been ringing in the night with cheap champagne and bad decisions at home in New York. Instead I found myself holed up in some hotel room in Southern California. But I wasn't alone. I was in the company of a fellow stranded traveler by the name of Cristiano. We spent one night together - forced into the same hotel room by the snowstorm that canceled our flights and changed our lives. His dimpled smile, panty-melting kisses, and charming wit were a temporary distraction from the chaos of the day...or the past year. But as soon as morning broke, I set my sights on getting home. I rented a car, mapped out my 2,749 mile journey, and packed my bags. Only Cristiano insisted on joining me. He needed to get home, too. His best friend was getting married on Saturday. And he refused to let me go it alone. It wasn't safe, he said. Trekking across country with an alluring stranger was certainly one of the more adventurous moments of my life. Falling for him was certainly one of the most daring. But uncovering his secrets? That was the most challenging. And the truth I learned...would shatter us both. Contains mature themes.

I'm a Romance Junkie! Love Whispersycn Deals! Tips I use: Sort reviews Most Recent; play with narration speed, some narrators sound better.
.....well maybe less the bad weather..... but when you're traveling with one sexy, hot male romance cover model, enduring the bad weather didn't seem that bad after all!
I love both Renshaw's Rixton Falls, and the Amato Brother series. They were entertaining, and had good mix of drama, angst, romance, and plot twists. The best part, your weren't left emotionally drained after listening to either series. Renshaw did a great job intertwining both series to deliver one amazing story, and fate always has a way of bringing two characters together.
The H/h are both at a New Year's Eve party where they meet for the first time. They each need to take a flight out, Christiano needs to make it to his best friends wedding, while Daphne needs to make it in time to her sister who's about to give birth. Due to the bad weather, all flights are grounded, and it may be days before it safe for any flights to go out. To make matters worse, the hotel rooms are double booked. Not liking the idea, but not left with any options Christiano, and Daphne agree to share the hotel room. They start to develop a connection, but Daphne is determine to make it to her sister before she gives birth, and decides she will rent a car, and travel the three days to be there for her sister. Christiano tries to talk her out of it, but she's determined. Due to past events, Christiano will not let her take the trip alone so they embark on the journey together. The more hours they spend together, the more they learn about each other, they start to form real chemistry between them. The have steamy moments, misunderstanding, but the closer they get to their destination, Daphne wonders if she will see Christiano after their adventure is over, but Christiano isn't done with Daphne yet.
I enjoyed both narrators performance, and looking forward to listening to either Aiden or Noelle in future audios.
Priceless is everything you come to expect from Renshaw, and was a fabulous KU/whispersync deal!
I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...
Now this is the kind of collision that romance fantasies are made of -- a favorite author and two well loved series meet and mingle for all kinds of deliciousness. As is Cristiano wasn't juicy enough we got a little taste of another one of his brothers, Fabrizio ... yummy! Cristiano and Daphne just kept fighting fate until they realized it was useless. This was a wonderful way to end the Rixton Falls series and continue the Amato Brothers Series -- very clever Ms. Renshaw, very clever indeed.
Aiden Snow was a good narrator but Noelle Bridges sounded whiny and annoying. If it wasn't such a good story I may have stopped listening. I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more with a better female narrator.
Such a good story, definitely worth the credit.
