Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating - just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever - even if that means teaming up with Ford....
Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He's willing to partner with Victoria,despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for....

"Julie James writes books I can't put down." (Nalini Singh, New York Times best-selling author)
I think I could have enjoyed the story in written form or with a different narrator. Narrator tended to overdramatize and didn't do well with male voices. It was hard to really like and identify with the characters, but I think that was partly because of the narration.
The Narrator ruined the whole book.
It is awful- do not waste your money
DO NOT BUY!
Overall, a great story but the narrator was terrible. the characters were great and I almost stopped reading because the narrator's voice was too old and off putting.
Bought several quick reads for summer beach entertainment. This book met that agenda. However, the narrator was so off as she attempted to take on a male voice that it became a major distraction.
I liked that the characters acted like real people.
When Ford was genuinely concerned with Victoria's fainting on the train.
I truly liked the story but the narrator, killed the story because she didn't sound like a 30 something lady. She did well with the other characters in the book but when she did the main character, Victoria, I could only imagine a 50 something lady and I could not shake that image throughout the book.
Yes, to read not audible
Her voice was annoying as a female & terrible as male.
A story teller.
The sex was hot, really hot. This narrator did a great job there was a scene with a doctor that was tense and I even started to cry I really got into it
To start with I felt like the story touched up on points so close to me that it was scary. I could identify with this book more than ever before as I am sure most other readers will as well. The terminology, street names, the subway blue line and finally her anxiety attacks whilst not wanting to draw any attention to herself since she was well known in her field. So perhaps at this point I'm biased but I felt the characters were well developed and the love progression seemed quite reasonable. Can't go wrong with this book.
I have listened to it again. I listened to the entire series, again even before I listened to this the first time. Just fun.
I loved the part when Victoria saw Ford with the co-worker and realized her feelings.
Karen White is one of my all time favorite narrators. All the books are great.
I have favorite characters in each book. Of all Jordan and Nick would be first but Victoria and Ford are up ther too. Julie James just needs to write faster because it's hard to wait for the next book.
