Joseph Anderson has decided it's time for his three successful sons to find brides. Joseph wants grandchildren to fill his mansion, and he wants them immediately. His eldest son, Lucas, is successful in all areas of his life, except love, and Joseph begins matchmaking. He finds Amy Harper and deems her the perfect daughter-in-law. He just needs to get her and Lucas to both realize they're made for each other.
Lucas Anderson is wealthy, sexy, and stubborn. He has no desire to have any woman enter his life, causing chaos, or using his family's name. Many women have tried, and he's been successful in finding out who they are beneath their false smiles.
Amy Harper was raised in tragic circumstances and doesn't like pampered, rich men who have been handed everything with a silver spoon. She spent years finishing her education and then received a job with the Anderson Corporation. She instantly doesn't like her incredibly sexy boss, who is arrogant and thinks every woman should fall at his feet.
When Amy becomes pregnant after one reckless night of passion, she's scared he'll take the baby and run. Lucas is demanding, and used to getting his way, but Amy has just the right amount of spark to ignite his fuse, and challenges him each step of the way.
Lucas's father, Joseph, and his brothers Alex and Mark, offer laughter, love, and support. With the love of Lucas's family, who aren't only rich and successful, but also kind and giving, Amy starts to realize that being wealthy doesn't make or break a man, and starts to picture the happily ever after she never believed in for herself.

Unless the narrator's voice doesn't agree with me - I usually enjoy the audio version of most books. This one is no different. I love the emotion that Ms. Swan brings to the book.
I think one of the most memorable moments in the book was when Lucas finally realizes that Amy is not after his money and he goes after her.
I love to listen to Lilly Swan. She has a great voice and is great with narration.
This book had a lot of ups and downs. You learn to love Joseph and his family..they make you smile and laugh. Lucas was frustrating at times and he could be very upsetting when dealing with Amy.
Love listening to books on my long work commute!
Annoyingly fluffy and predictable. It was really hard for me to finish listening. I would usually return one this cheesy.
I can't imagine anyone with a brain enjoying this. I am pretty sure my IQ. Dropped 20 points
Not sure, but I didn't enjoy her breathy performance
Don't waste your time
This was a really sweet story. The characters were all very accepting and forgiving. Almost a Cinderella story. Liked how it didn't drag on and had the right balance of intimacy. The narrator was good and had good inflection. All in all it was very enjoyable.
I listen to a lot of books as I travel for work. This held my interest and was not the trivial love story ie: hot stubborn rich guy gets sassy poor girl. It was wholesome in an interesting modern way. Many audible books get lengthy, predictable and too detailed. This one was just right. Give it a try.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
Think about every cliche you've ever read about in romance novels and this one has it. It's so predictable and boring that I can't believe I manage to finish it. Young woman who's a virgin comes to work for handsome billionaire. They fall in lust at first sight. They have sex once without protection and obviously she gets pregnant. Add a medling billionaire father in law that has made his life's mission to make his sons marry and give him grand babies and you have a predictable fluff... With a happily ever after. An average unremarkable narration does not really redeem this story. Skip this one...
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
This book reminded me of the wonderful series The Marriage... by Jennifer Probst.
This is a lighter romance than the deep bondage books - still a lot of tension and naughtiness.
Lucas is ready to find an assistant and somehow his dad (grandchild less) finds Amy. Loving the girl and anxious for grandchildren he set her up with the job for Lucas. He is attracted to her and she's attracted to him but they resist.
Several scenes of protective alpha male and a few clashes and they end up in the bedroom.
Basics: Amy, grew up in a very poor family and does not feel she is worthy of the billionaire family. They coax and prod her to be more open-minded and let her accept them as part of HER family. (Reverse Psychology)
An intense twist is revealed early on that changes the direction of the story so unfortunately I won't write more...I hate spoilers!
The author's performance was great and I was a happy camper listening to it.
This was a sweet book and I got it on sale for $1.99! Money well spent.
Notes: A few mature scenes
Credit Worthy/ $ : Yes or yes!
Call me crazy but why do girls always jump to needing to here those three words? Can't they just feel it. And men is it that hard to say them? I think relationships should be give and take from both parties and be up front and honest with each other. if you can't do that then why did you get them together. Overall the story was great though and I enjoyed it.
"a little bit robotic. . ."
i had already read the ebook of this title, and liked the series. i was looking forward to having all the books in the series on audio, but Audible.co.uk seem to not be releasing book 2. . .even though they have already released book 3?. . . :/ (publisher claims Audible have all rights, and should already be selling book 2 in the UK, they are already selling it in the US, which i can believe given having the same problems on many different occasions with Audible.co.uk)
in terms of this performance in this publication, i found the narrator a little bit robotic sounding. it's not enough to put you off, for me anyway, but is a little bit weird. along with the accents being a little weird also.
the story is what it is. it's romance, it's a story not a real life event. but it's what i would call a guilty pleasure read, because it's a HEA guaranteed type of book! lol
"Needs a different author"
The narrator! Having read this book, I was looking forward to listening to it and for the book to be brought to life as I drove a long distance.
I loved Joe Anderson, strong man who is devoted and loves his family, though an interfering old man(said in a loving way!)
The narrator didn't seem to give each of the characters their own voice and unfortunately didn't seem to be into the story. There was no conviction to the characters. If all the books in the series are made available in audio I would definitely listen to them, if there is a different narrator. I suggest trying to get Pippa Jayne.
A great story, just a shame about the narrators conviction to the story and characters.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
