When FBI agent Grayson Kincaid first encounters Olivia MacKenzie, she makes quite an impression. The beautiful, tough young attorney has stumbled into the middle of an FBI sting operation and reduced it to chaos. Months of surveillance and careful planning down the drain, Kincaid’s partner is furious and lets Olivia know that she’s ticked off the wrong guy. After all, he’s FBI.
But Olivia isn’t intimidated by his partner’s bullying because she’s something even scarier...she’s IRS.
And working for the IRS is no picnic. She’s on the trail of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, one that threatens to ruin the lives of naive and unsuspecting victims, and one she has personal reasons to be angry about. But after she asks the wrong people questions, her life is suddenly endangered. She’s accustomed to looking out for others who are weak, but being vulnerable herself makes her realize she needs help. In desperation, she calls Grayson Kincaid.
Together they join forces to fight corruption, but Olivia is also fighting the immediate and intense attraction she feels for Agent Kincaid, and that may be a battle she is bound to lose.

"As always, Ms. Garwood creates engaging characters who come alive page after page. The banter and interaction between Ellie and Max is beyond charming. Ellie is a spirited and strong heroine, and Max is charming in a stoic, gruff sort of way." (New York Journal of Books on The Ideal Man)
"Julie Garwood creates masterpieces every time she writes a book. Indeed, she is the Rembrandt of romance novels." (The Kansas City Star)
"Julie Garwood has become a trusted brand name in romantic fiction." (People)
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Julie Garwood is a very talented storyteller! I loved every minute of Sweet Talk: A Novel. I love her historical romance novels, as well as her contemporary romance novels.
Angela Dawe is one of my favorite narrators who has performed more than 100 books on Audible alone. I really don't understand the negative reviews on Ms. Dawe. Her style of narration is very easy to follow and identify each separate character...male or female. Her ear for accents, such as those used in the Highlander/Historical Romances, demonstrates and confirms a real talent.
Great Book! Definitely Credit Worthy!!
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Olivia is a cancer survivor, who was treated shamelessly by her family, when she was a child. Therefore, her relationship with them is almost non existent. The sting operation that she inadvertently stumbled into has repercussions that are farther reaching than the FBI. Enter Grayson Kincaid, who is immediately taken with Olivia and her show of courage, and sets out to befriend her; in the course of things realizes someone is out to kill her.
This was a very entertaining story, and yes I do recommend it.
Angela Dawe did a fantastic job with her performance of the story.
I love all of Julie Garwood's books. I just wish I had read the book on this one instead of listening to it. The narrater has an annoying habit of ending words and sentences with an upward tinny pitch.
There isn't really any difference in her voice when she is narrating female dialog and giving background information. Her male voices are not very good.
The story is good except the author tells you the main character has a "touch of Asthma" but through out the book she is desperately seeking her emergency inhaler. This got old fast. I think she used the emergency inhaler several time each day. All I could think of was the main character needs to see a pulmonary specialist.
It's great....not Nora Roberts but still great story
the pips....those three little girls
she does a great job on the voices
the fast pace and the laughs
the resturant scene
I know some listeners didnt like her but I did
garwod always makes me laugh
I love Julie Garwood and always wait for the next book. But what a disappointment. I hardly wanted to finish this one simply because of the narrator. Very ho-hum style with the same inflections over and over. I'm not sure I can even read the hard copy version without it being ruined now. Too bad. Don't let her read any more of your books, Julie.
I've read all of her Julie Garwood's legal stories and have loved all of them. Waiting on the next so that I can download.
This book kept me laughing and sometimes sad, intermittently. I know some like the graphic sex parts, but I think a little mystery there is better. However the overall story was very well put. Besides those of us who like Julie Garwood, knows she is a consummate story teller. Well worth the listen, also.
Good enough to buy, but not good enough to be at the top of my favorites, or in my favorites.
The relationship seemed very realistic, the plot not so much but the relationship could have been real.
Yes it kept me on the edge I couldn't figure out the ending way before it happened, which is unusual for me.
yes.The book is enough different from all the ones out there that it was a nice change .
no favorite .Liked many for their differences.
I did listen to it in one and also bought the kindle version and will read it in the future or maybe listen and read .
Just a nice book that kept my interest .For hours..I miss it now that I'm finished which means the characters made a connection .
