Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She's tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her. A week's vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun. Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn't date, he doesn't stay the night, and he doesn't make any promises. It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

I really liked this story the first time I heard it the narration was just not working for me. Now with the rerecorded this is much better,
Anna: no bullshit
I am a big fan of Sebastian York. Not sure if I have heard of Saskia This is a much better performance. The last performance was not that great.
It was a very pretty story on a long distance relationship
Thank you, for the remake.
Louise Bay is a "new to me" author as all her audios released in 2016. I must say, I'm in LOVE. Her stories are low on angst, which I appreciate, yet high on steam, which I REALLY appreciate. There is no contrived, convoluted "Three's Company" moment that has to be overcome, just a story of super hot physical attraction turning to like, and eventually love.
The narration of this book is amazing. #kingofauralsex Sebastian York is always spot on for the quality of his work and very well cast for his character. Saskia Maarleveld is a narrator on my "go to" list for her voice acting skills and her English accent in Empire State is perfection-not too "posh" and very believable. Her ability to perform male voices is excellent, which is a rare talent for female narrators (in my experience), and I seek out her work based on that.
All in all, this is a fantastic listen and #wellworthacredit.
Two side notes:
*I also really enjoyed Indigo Nights and King of Wall Street. KWS is on my top ten list for romance audiobooks in 2016. I highly recommend both audiobooks.
*This audio was re-recorded because of poor reviews for the narration of one character. As a 99% audio listener I can't overstate how pleased I am that the author took the time, effort and money to re-cast and re-record this book. It's always disheartening when you see overwhelmingly positive reviews for a book but the audio is lacking for whatever reason.
The beginning and middle were good but getting to the end was frustrating as both characters lost their strong well and became cripplingly insecure and indecisiveness.... I found myself saying 'just say it' over and over.
Not as good. Absolutely loved King of Wall Street and Indigo Nights.
York ALWAYS DELIVERS - a fav! First time listening to Saskia, she was good and it was nice and different to hear an English accent.
No, I would be screaming at the screen towards the end.
So, I'll listen to pretty much anything that has Sebastian York in it. He's my number one go to narrator, and I loved him as Ethan...no big surprise there. Saskia Maarleveld, however, took me some time for me to get used to. She's bit more monotone than I care for, but once I go used to her, parts two and three were better. If you get part the first half of part one, she grows on you.
I liked the story. Anna is confident and independent. Ethan doesn't dance around what he wants. There's a bit of drama at the end, but that is quickly rectified. Overall, if you want a romance that has Sebastian York in it, I'll recommend this one.
The book was a little too vulgar for me, I guess I should've done my research first but there was too much sex. The narrators accents were terrible which made the story less than bearable. Overall it was just ok.
A three in one! Thank you! Light, funny, and sexy! Sebastian & Saskia did a fantastic job narrating! Completely entertains!
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
Ethan (of NYC) & Anna (of London) meet and have a steamy night together. No questions asked and they both go their separate ways. However, it doesn't work out that way. There is lots & lots of sex in NYC and London! This has low to no conflict which I like. I'm glad that all 3 book series are included so the 2 cliffhangers from books 1 & 2, don't leave you hanging. I have a crush on SY narration of Ethan. He was great as usual. Sometimes it was hard to figure out Saskia's female voice. I had to determine if it was Anna speaking or one of her friends. I like Louise Bay and will listen more, especially with Sebastian York narrating. Yes, worth my credit especially since all 3 books are included.
This was a beautiful story and I enjoyed it so much! I listened to it all in one listen. I couldn't wait to see what happened.
"5 stars isn't enough for this captivating romance"
If you like reading a sexy, seductive, mesmerising romance then this is the book for you. The plot is simple, what starts out as a one night stand transitions into something so much more. It's a series full of desire, passion, lust, love. Anna and Ethan are adorable, beautiful, wonderful protagonists and once I started listening I could not stop, I was all consumed by their world. Both narrators were amazing. Love, love, love this book and now feeling quite desolate without it!
