After failing miserably at love, Roxane VanBuren swears off men but not before her determined best friend shows her all the advantages of being single. After a wild weekend full of sex, old-flames, and secrets, Roxane is desperate to forget it ever happened. But she learns it isn't that easy.
Since becoming the President of VanBuren Investments, she knows how important it is for her professional and personal life to remain separate from one another. If the two were to mix, the rumors could possibly ruin her reputation, which is bad for her and bad for business. To avoid that, Roxane allows rules to define and guide her every move. Unfortunately for her, Parker Williams is determined to break them all, one at a time.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Super Sexy Story!
Parker!!!! he is HOT!!!
Yes, I like Lia's narrations....and she was just as great this time as she was in Kinky, which I recommend also!!!
Laugh a little...other than that I had to fan myself quite a few times!!! lol
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
I really liked this sexy and quick listen, and am dying for #2! This is about Roxanne who has basically sealed off her heart and sworn off true love because she lost the love of her life. She internet dates and has one night stands...and is frivolous with her love life...but keeps it very secret....well her best friend invites her to a swingers club where she meets this mystery bartender man....things escalate and before she knows it its to late! Just shows you that it really is a small work after all! LOVED IT!!! and cant wait for #2...I hope its out soon!!! :)
Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com
Lia Langola brings so much life to the book, she is a fantastic narrator. So yes the I would say the audio is a lot better .
I like that it was erotic without being porn. This is a very hot read, but it also has a story and people that you will fall in love with.
If you looking for a little spice, some casual sex, and then Parker!! This is the book for you!The only issue I have with this book is that I want more!
This is a new author to Audible but I will watch for more books by her. As for Lia she is also on my watch list, anything these two make I,m sure will be a hit.
Loved the story!! Narration with Lia makes you feel like your insides are coming alive! Love how far she gets into character!!!
Writing is awesome, Lyra covers all the Details!!
STORY: 4 stars
PERFORMANCE: 5 stars
OVERALL: 4-4.5 stars
I received this audiobook free from the narrator in exchange for my honest review.
I wasn't expecting SINGLE to be anything extraordinary since the story is not an uncommon one...... Roxane VanBuren is a strong, intelligent, independent woman. She's wealthy and powerful, working 50+ hours a week as President of her family's company, VanBuren Investments. Roxane is beautiful, single and has sexual needs she is determined to have sated without having to delve into another unsuccessful relationship.
Each weekend Roxanne trades her business suit in for leather catsuits and Pretty Woman style hooker boots. With a best friend in the modeling industry with lots of connections, Roxane plays as hard on the weekends as she works during the week. Whatever she does, Roxane is always careful to keep her private life just that; private. News of her weekend sexual escapades would not only disappoint the elder VanBurens (Roxane's father and grandfather) but would also undermine her authority at work. She's never had difficulty keeping these two aspects of her life separate until now. Until she meets HIM. Roxane's long held beliefs about not mixing business with pleasure are suddenly not an option.
With talented author Lyra Parish creating exciting, taboo weekend adventures for Roxane (a masked swingers party? Yes please!) coupled with the powerful, believable voice of Lia Langola narrating, this book is far from boilerplate! From the moment I started listening, I was immediately hooked! I am not sure if it was the author's writing style or the authentic, genuine feel of the narration but I honestly felt like I was in the board room and at parties with Roxane! There is something very special about this audio book as I have only experienced this a handful of times despite having read hundreds of books.
Having listened to many audio books, I can say with certainty that Lia Langola is one of the best in the business. Her strong, confident voice made her the perfect fit for Roxane; I honestly can't think of another narrator that would have been a better fit. Because Ms. Langola is a master at adjusting her voice just the right amount, creating different voices for each character. Yes, most fiction narrators are capable of altering their voice to differentiate between characters yet Ms. Langola doesn't over do it. When I listen to a book narrated by her l, I know I won't have to force myself to listen to any ridiculous, overly exaggerated voices which to me are like nails on a chalkboard. It's refreshing to listen to a narrator like Ms. Langola who doesn't try to fake anything. For example, she doesn't speak in accents she hasn't fully mastered. Ms. Langola is natural and unpretentious which has a huge positive impact on whatever she is narrating.
I will definitely be waiting in line to purchase the next installment in this series, buying the audio book if this format is available. I highly recommend this anyone over the age of 18 who likes erotic romance. Having listened to this on audiobook, I strongly suggest spending a few extra dollars to get the audio book - you won't be sorry you did!
oh yes this is one of my first audio books I have listened to and wow it was amazing.
Lia you were great I like all your charters you have a nice tone to your voice and loved how you got into charter
Thank you so very much for giving me the opportunely to listen and review this book It is one I will recommend to friends...
Most differently it was such a good book
When she realizes who Parker is...
In Roxy's office and Parker came in and confronted her and she couldn't deny her feelings for him
Yes so much so that we had to order out for pizza because I was so wrapped in the book I forgot to start dinner Lol...
A note to the Narrator Lia Langola, again another wonderful job.. I could honestly listen to your books all day. You have a very clear and pleasant voice. This job was made for you..

I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I did find it interesting though. Not being single, I did find it a very interesting read. I liked how the author went into the rules of the single and why. Once I heard the why's it all made sense.
The author, Lyra Parish did a good job of writing this book. I found this story to be naughty (not erotic). The narrator, Lia Langola delivered this story to us flawlessly. She spoke clearly and smoothly.
I won this audio book in a contest I entered.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Single is a rather short (three-hour) erotic romance. If you are looking for a plot or story, this book has a very superficial one, with a few exceptions, rather predictable . If you're looking for something hot to listen to on the beach or at home, without a lot of thinking, you will probably enjoy this more.
There is one risqué scene after another. Its like eating chocolate – tastes so good & enjoy the empty calories.
Lia Langola is exceptional and knows how to perform a *naughty* book. There COULD have been a challenge in separating the female characters - Lia Langola does it easily - professional and flawless.
