Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation. He's had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition - a private island resort in the Bahamas - he has a chance to mend his broken heart. When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She's unlike anyone he's ever met - down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato. She also has no clue that he's rich...
Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel's domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What's the harm in a little fling when it's just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan's arms, Bronte's ready to give her heart-and her body-to the man in charge. But she soon discovers there's more to Logan than he's told her...a billion times more. Now, Bronte's caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world's most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?

A different narrator.
It was the same voice for every character in the book. It is difficult to listen to the book and enjoy it when everyone has the same voice. Different characters should have a different voice. Very disappointed!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
A very nice Contemporary love story about Logan an arrogant, handsome, cold and cynical Billionaire who gets stranded on his Desert Island with lovely Bronte a sweet, kind, caring Waitress who's got no idea just who he is and he wants to keep it that way. Bronte's often quoting famous Philosopher's sayings which Logan first finds annoying but eventually they make him smile so that, and her nervous giggles together with the warmth of her personality, soon starts to thaw his heart. This, and their sexual attraction, quickly heats up the air between them and passion soon ignites. However, when they're rescued things start to go wrong, then right, then wrong again and it's not until every truth is bared do they finally get their HEA.
A simple, sweet, light listen that has passion, humor, a chocolate box selection of interesting sweet tasty and sour secondary characters there's caring tender sex scenes and romance too as one Billionaire is taught that not everything can be bought..... but he gives it a damn good try anyway.
Worth a credit? This was a very enjoyable start to a new series about a secret Brotherhood of six wealthy and successful men - so one down and five to follow - with the next one being Hunter's story he's a scarred recluse and I'm eagerly looking forward to it. So, if you're in the mood for an implausible yet touching escape then look no further.... and YES definitely worth the credit.
I enjoyed this book and will continue with the series. I like the band of brothers and can't wait to listen to all of them fall.
I loved the storyline. The narrator's voice was Fabulous making the book that more enjoyable.
It was slow to build, but once it go started wow. I listened for over 4 hours alone yesterday! Getting the other two books today!
because of the entertainment factor. the beginning is very entertaining. Logan is so arrogant, it was nice to see Bronty put him in his place.
Bronty because she was very down to earth and just very entertaining.
she doesn't do a good job of portraying the men, she has the emotion, but not the voice inflexions.
When Loganfinally dimmed him arrogance
but the narration could have been better. the voices of the characters weren't that different and there were odd pauses from time to time. but the book was a light quick listen and kept my attention.
I am a retired teacher who now Homeschool my 4 children. I read or listen to books as my escape and to get some "me" time.
Who hasn't imagined being trapped on a desert island? But, I was never adventurous enough to hope for a billionaire to boot.
