What's worse than having to watch your sister marry your ex-fiancé? How about when that fiancé fires you from the family business?
Hyper-organized, event planner, Jaya Trudeaux is used to doing things by the book and never making waves. It's a strategy that's served her well until she finds herself in failure alley with no fiancé, no job and her thirtieth birthday looming. Maybe it's time to change her methods. Starting with an unlikely date to the wedding from hell.
The only thing that can tie carefree, playboy, Alec Danthers down is his formidable step mother. When she calls him home to help find his wayward brother, he never imagines an uptight, list making, sass-talking woman would make him think about putting down roots.
Can Jaya put the lists down long enough to enjoy the ride that is Alec? Will Alec stop running long enough to recognize true love?
Warning: Sexy, sass talking women will make you laugh, cry and want a pair of killer footwear.

This was my first listen/story by this author, and I really enjoyed it. I would've liked for the narrator to sound more convincingly African-American (recognizing all Black people don't sound the same) to lend more authenticity to the telling. But, overall, the narrator still did a good job. But, in this instance, the narrator didn't carry the story; the story was good on it's own. And the narrator did it justice in large part. I really enjoyed the humor and heat most of all. It had small instances of explicit language, very very briefly. And the ending was a bit unconvincing, but I love love so.... I will look for this author again.
The book was okay. It seems to me that the love interests of this particular genre is usually emasculated or close to it. While I read the books for the love story and what could be, I'd like there to be some realism in the story. A common theme I notice (in other books as well) is the over-bearing, over exaggerating, unwilling to listen, dead set in her way, always feels like the victim, female protagonist of the story.
The story was interesting and quite funny at times. Jaya reminded me of one of the characters on Sex and the City. A few of the characters needed more development. I liked Alec and his bad boy persona. The overall love story had steamy moments and then a few lulls, but the finished product was good.
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
Was extremely cute bwwm story & funny conversation Laughed my booty off. Next book about this couple please.
This book should be x-rated so that a young girl does not get ahold of it. I am no prude, but why do authors insist on detailing sex???
mainly read romances and books for a book club that take me all over the map.
Virtually no difference in character voice pitches accents and such. Just so grated on my nerves I finally said NO MORE. Out of the nearly three hundred books my app says I have in my library, most of which are romances, I can only think of three to five times this has happened. Author was not finished with the plot set up, but the early writing seemed relatively amateurish. This is one to avoid.
