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.

The story was pretty good and kept me interested but because of the descriptive nature of the sexual encounters, this audiobook should probably be listed under the Erotica category.
The narrator did a pretty good job. I would like to listen to some more books she has done.
Alec is a wealthy man but he lets Jaya think he is a bartender. He is only supposed to be in town for a couple of weeks but he meets someone that makes him question his lifestyle.
Jaya is fired from her family company and is trying hard to find a new job but nobody is returning her emails or phone calls. Someone is trying to keep her from succeeding. Jaya gets involved with Alec. What was supposed to be a one night stand leads to much more than they both expected.

Loving books :) Quick and honest reviews.
Yes, the book was good. Some of the terms was off putting because its not a realistic word used by normal people. "Hanky panky"
Typical romance book but more steamy than most.
The accents of some of the characters were very strange. The father was really out there.
It would be an adult film if it was made into a movie. WAY to hot and steamy for a movie theater showing.
Really good read. Loved the story. predictable but the sex scenes were legit.
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.
dressy, sexy and cute
wouldn't change it...
her voice was really good to listen to

I really liked Sexy in Stilettos by Nana Malone. The story was fun, sexy, had a little mystery and danger and we'll developed and likable characters. I listened to the audio version and the narrator was excellent. Great at making each characters voice unique and read at a smooth pace with just the right amount of emotion when called for. I'm definitely interested in more from this author. 4.5 stars.
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.
This was not a bad story, just too many sex scene and not enough story development. I got the book for free on Amazon so I can't complain of the price. A lot of unexplained relationship dynamics. If you like a book (story) with a description of every sexual position known to man, this is the book for you. If you prefer more story with a little sex then shop elsewhere.
I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!
It took me awhile to get into this story. I started and stopped a few times. Today is Memorial Day and since I have kids in the pool all day, I thought I would give it a try. It had some high points but it never jelled as a story. The author asked us to believe too much in order to make the story work.
To whit: We are supposed to believe that a father would actually fire a daughter for such an inane reason; that a sister would actually sleep with another sister's fiance (okay, that may happen but no way would the jilted sister be involved in planning the wedding); that a father will be okay with a man cheating on his daughter and actually welcome him into the family; that a little kid will know where his sperm donor father lived--and how to get there And the list goes on. It hurt my head.
I didn't have a problem with the erotic sequences since I fast forwarded through them (didn't seem right since I had little ones running around) but there was quite a bit. Still, there were so many situations that were never explained. Who came into the office when Jaya was trying to retrieve her software? If Jaya was supposed to be such a geek girl, other than her figurines, where was that? Why did the sister go after the fiance? And on it goes.
I wanted to like Jaya but I couldn't. I didn't dislike her but there was not enough depth to root for or even care about her. Actually, none of the two main characters ranked high on the likability scale.
The best thing I can say about this listen is that the narrator didn't suck.
