Darcy Stone is game for anything - except sexy navy vet and physical therapist AJ Colten, the guy who'd rejected her when she'd needed him most. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and he needs her to play nice and help him secure grants for his patients. She needs the money to fund her passion project: rescuing S&R dogs and placing them with emotionally wounded soldiers.
AJ admits it - Darcy is irresistible. But he's already been battle scarred by a strong-willed, vivacious, adventurous woman like Darcy, and he's not making the same mistake twice - until he and Darcy are forced to fake a relationship. Growing closer than they'd ever imagined possible, Darcy and AJ have to ask themselves: How much between them is pretend? What's the real thing? And where does it go from here?

AJ and Darcy are my favourites from the Animal Magnetism series. Their story was just as good in audio form as in print. Shalvis' dialogue is so entertaining when read aloud.
What I'm Reading
The banter between AJ and Darcy. They are so cute together.
The rode trip to Boise to meet with a potential investor.
Darcy, because she was able to bring out her sass and snark to life.
Over coming all obstacles and finding love.
It is a wonderful story line with just enough drama to make it interesting. The narration was very good. It flowed nicely, the characters were portrayed very well, they were believable. I enjoyed it!
The story line was really weak. I did not care for the narrators voice which made it hard to listen to this story. The story line had inconsistency's that did not make sense
I love this series! Jill Shalvis always adds her sense of wonderful humor and it makes me laugh out loud. It can be awkward while riding the L in Chicago but totally worth it. The story line is great. I wanted to know about Darcy from the last book and am happy that Mrs. Shalvis saw fit to give her an HEA with AJ.
The performance by Karen White was dead on as always. She's narrated this whole series so well. She's got the emotion and humor down pat. So pleased with this book in the series. Cannot wait for book 7!
I think this is the best one of the series so far. We new Darcy's story was coming. And maybe because I like female characters with edge. And the alpha males that have the guts to love them. I enjoyed the characters and Karen White as dead on with the narrations.
This is a good romance if you enjoy Ms Shalvis.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes, but if you only try one, don't start with this one. Rumor Has It and Then Came You are still the ones to start this series if you want to just try one. They have up beat heroines that will steal your heart. Darcy's character has a darker side she must overcome and that shades this story.
Author has wonderful humor in all of her books and this one doesn't disappoint. i.e. When Zoey tells Zander he should eat a cheeseburger before he tries to kicks AJ's butt.
Author is great, but K.W. makes the author's written word blast into life. (Try Julie James series for more of K.W. great reads and laughs.)
I did not try any of this author's work read by new readers. I have had enough of so so readers and did not want any more trial and errors. You will have to read reviews on this authors new readers.
when AJ bundles Darcy into his shirt and "tucks her away" is one of the many scenes that the author has sprinkled into this listen.
