When a researcher disappears with millions, Val Chase, the director of public relations at a hospital, faces the biggest challenge of her career. To make matters worse, the CEO brings in his old college roommate, a crisis management ringer and a man Val is convinced wants to make her look bad. She instantly dislikes the smooth-talking man with the expensive suit who threatens her very livelihood, even as she's drawn to him physically. Nate O'Halloran is just trying to do a favor for a friend and is caught off-guard by the sexy PR director who's determined to handle this crisis without his help. His eagerness to rush back to his A-list celebrity clientele is waning by the minute, as Val's beauty and fiery personality enthrall him. As Nate gets to know Ms. Chase better, for the first time in his life he sees how empty his existence is and a future that includes a woman. As things at the hospital go from bad to worse, can he convince Val he's more than a playboy and not out for her job?

hmmm, only three words??
As I haven't read anything exaclty like this, I can't answer this question. Also I hate comparing books.
Gosh I can't really say which is the best character performed by Kai & Wen, I loved them all, although Val & Nate did really stand out compared to the rest.
HOT, STEAMY, SUSPENSEFUL
I really enjoyed listening to Kai & Wen tell Nate & Val's story, they added much more heat within the story, than if I was only reading it... I think it helps tremendously that they compliment one-anther's work within the narrating.
The story was a simple love story. A enjoyable listen. The narration was great I really do not like Kai;s voice that much but I really enjoy listening to the books her and Wen read. I wish all books were read in this manner. All in all worth a credit.
PR Val works at a hospital. When a huge scandal starts, Nate comes in to help save them. Val doesn't want any help but Nate is there to help anyway. They have plenty of sexual tension and some very hot scenes.
This book was steamy and suspenseful and I didn't want it to end. I listened to it in one sitting and enjoyed every last minute. Excellent narration by kai&wen I plan on sharing with all my friends and family really anyone who enjoys a steamy read!
The way that the narrators brought the story to life.
Seducing Chase by Cassandra Carr was another great book by the author. Val and Nate have a chemistry that they can't deny. While things go from bad to worse for the hospital that Val work for, they both get closer. I loved reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author. This is a must read.
I have both the Kindle Version and the Audible Version. I actually listened to this all in 1 sitting and loved it.
Loved Val and Nate. Val & Nate are working together to help save the reputation of the hospital that Val works at. Val feels that Nate is trying to take over her job. She fights her feelings that keep sneaking up on her about Nate. She knows that he won't be around forever, and isn't comfortable with letting things progress beyond co-workers.
Nate is helping a friend when he finds himself working with Val. He knows that this is only temporary but can't help but fall for Val.
This story takes us on their journey of discovery that there is more to life than their jobs. The sexy bits are hot, the story line is entertaining, the dialogue portrayed by Kai and Wen was done so well and the descriptions to details were done were it was easy to visualize.
Kai and Wen brought the characters to life in the Audio version. Written as a multi pov and does have a HEA.
Would I recommend this book? Yes
Would I read more from this author? Yes
Sassy Beta Reading & Review
Right at the top.
I loved the way Nate and Val interact. She was a little mean at first but I think she felt her job was being threatened and didn't realize Nate was there just to help his friend. I also liked as the book progressed that Nate was second guessing the direction of his career. He started looking towards possibly doing something more meaningful.
I liked the tones of their voices. It makes you almost feel like your right there watching the story come to life.
I was devastated when Nate left and it looked like that was where the relationship was going to end. Glad it didn't.
Loved this book!
Fun modern romance
Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance was one of the best I have ever heard by them. There was a lot of playfulness in this book and it made for a really fun listen. The palpable exasperation of the characters with each other was also quite amusing. I really enjoyed this book and hope they do more like it in the future! If I had just read this book instead of listening I would have missed alot of the nuance between the characters :)
PR Nightmare Turns To Love?
This seems to be a stand alone novel.
Val's dream job has turned into a nightmare! One of their cancer research doctors has apparently developed a serious gambling addiction. He stole loads of money from the hospital and took off leaving only a note. Will the hospital survive the scandal? The loss of funds? Will they find the missing doctor before he spends all his ill gotten gains? How will she protect the hospital from the media? Is she about to lose her job?
Called in by his best friend to help clean up this PR nightmare, Nate knows he has his work cut out for him. This isn't one of his usual celebrity clients. The hospital does real good in the world. This just might be his most important job ever! Finding himself drawn to the hospital's head of PR is not something he bargained for though. Will he ever get past her prickly defenses? Why does he care so much? Why does she hate all his ideas? And better yet, why isn't he annoyed by that?
***This book is suitable for adult listeners (or readers) who enjoy fun and funny contemporary romances with steamy sex scenes and a hero and heroine determined to get their own ways leading to a HEA :)
This audio book was a good, realistic romance with great narration by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross, who are easily my favorite narrators. Nothing beats dual narration with actors who aren't simply reading aloud.
I liked the characters and enjoyed watching the romance between Nate and Val build. He definitely had to overcome her barriers and prejudice against him (thus, the title). This was my first novel by Cassandra Carr, so I didn't really know what to expect. With the title, I actually expected erotica, which it wasn't. There were a couple of steamy love scenes, but it didn't overpower the plot, and the book didn't revolve around them.
Carr went into great detail building the characters' backstories. There was a lot of suspense, and I got caught up in the story of the theft and its aftermath for the hospital. The two main characters were both publicists forced to work together to stop the bleeding after the scandal broke.
It's a stand alone, but there were a couple of loose ends that I would like to have seen tied up, mostly regarding characters' jobs.
I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
I loved this story even more after listening to Kai and Wen's performance. They always bring each character's personality into the story and I love the humor and laughter they incorporate as they are narrating. I actually liked Val better this time versus when I read the book and Nate was so sexy. This is a great contemporary romance story for everyone.
