Stephano knows the gorgeous woman he just met is trouble! But he cannot resist Kyra.
Stephano Rinaldi sees beautiful women all the time as a fashion photographer. But the wealthy hero cannot lose the chance to get to know Kyra better, even though they have only a couple of days together.
Kyra mistrusts men and sees no reason the sexy photographer should be any different.
Kyra Walsh is swept off her feet by charming Stephano in this steamy love story. She should turn away, but a taste of him is addictive. One hot interlude leads to another. Each time the sex is hotter than before. Yet she knows there is no future for them.
"It wasn't just that Stephano was handsome. It was those copper-brown eyes rimmed in dark blue, and the way he looked at her. It was as though Stephano could see into her heart, and knew how she felt, though she did her best to hide it. Kyra wasn't right for him. Or for any man, really. Casual dating was one thing. A serious relationship was another. And with Stephano, casual was impossible. He stirred feelings that Kyra was ill-equipped to handle. If she didn't watch it, things would get messy."
Kyra can't seem to find the right guy. In the past, she has been abused. Her best friend introduces her to a heartthrob billionaire bachelor at a fashion show in Zurich. There is every reason they shouldn't be together, but the attraction is too strong. When Kyra's past threatens to ruin their relationship before it has even started, Stephano vows to save her.

I was given this audiobook by the author/narrator/publisher via Audiobook Blast in exchange of an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.
the narrator for sure!
I found her voice very soothing and her words flowed quite nicely
she gives each character a slightly different sound and even adds in some accents when necessary ... not one sounds silly or out of place
No but I did look forward to listening every morning while I worked
the sex is pretty hot ;)
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!
A beautiful, model with a secret from her past. A gorgeous photographer (of models) falls hard. So they are intertwined both physically and emotionally. The escapades draw them closer and then push them apart.
Why is she so secretive? What, if anything is he hiding?
I can go no further without spoiling.
If you're considered reading/listening this book, please note there is a cliffhanger for an ending, something I had forgotten. Now, with baited breath, I await the next in the series!
The narration is very good and the writer of the book lays out a great, so frustrating (again, cliffhanger ending) well thought out book one in the series.
While *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my thought, opinions, and review, I cannot wait until the next in the series comes out.
Notes: Mature themes

Only if my friend liked cheesy romance.
Her style was succinct but enunciation was a little over-pronounced for my taste and her male voices were odd.
Honestly, I struggled to finish it. It's not teterrible if you are into hopeless romance with lots of sex scenes. For me, the dialogue was far too repetitious and the mystery annoyed me instead of making me want to know more.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I am retired & when not sleeping am reading or listening to a book. I multi task so when I am on the computer I always listen to a book.
NO. It wasn't bad and the sex was x-rated (which is generally a turn on for me) but I just was waiting for it to be over. I can't put my finger on the exact reasons this book didn't do it for me because usually this type of story does it for me in spades. It was slow paced, I guess because there is so much more to go as it is part of a series.
Never listened to her before.
No scene stands out in my mind, all pretty much beige, no pop of color.
Of course, the book left me hanging on their relationship and her past.
I don't know if it was the character development or the writing generally but I just didn't get
too much involved with the story. I am willing to give this author another chance, if it is free. All in all a nice story, ok writing and a nice narrator.
