The Substitute Millionaire | [Susan Mallery]

The Substitute Millionaire

Successful businessman Ryan Bennett had agreed to masquerade as his wealthy cousin for a blind date. But from the moment Ryan saw Julie Nelson to the moment he should have said good-night, he was captivated and couldn't resist an invitation to share her bed. In the hazy afterglow of their heated lovemaking, Ryan confessed his true identity, claiming the passion between them was real despite his deception, but Julie wasn't buying it. Obviously she considered him the enemy.

Except now she was having the enemy's baby.

    "Good narration on an ok story"

    I liked Savannah Richards narration. The book was entertaining enough but not outstanding in any way. I got this book on sale so feel I still got good value for my money. You can't be bowled over by all of them right?

    Story
    "Colour Me Impressed"
    Where does The Substitute Millionaire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this book. The plot wasn't unrealistic and the characters were a lot of fun to read. Their words, their reactions, their fears and insecurities were extremely well portrayed. The dialogue was realistic. I'm new to audio books and now I am hooked.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Favourite character was Julie. A romantic heroine with spunk and a straight shooter. Nothing wrong with being strong. She wasn't perfect and struggled for a long while with her trust issues just like most of us. I loved her sense of humour and the love she felt for her family.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the end when Ryan intervened and stated that Julie didn't have to marry him, that all he wanted was for Julie to be happy and of course he said the most beautiful three letter phrase: I love you. It was all Julie needed to hear.

    Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    "IT DESERVES NO STARS"

    This is ludicrous story about two unlikable people in lust. Not love. I'm glad I bought it on sale and did not waste a credit on this terrible book. Waste of time and money.

    Story
    "INANE STORY"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A teenage girl.


    What was most disappointing about Susan Mallery’s story?

    There was no drama worth dealing with. A common story line of identity deception for ridiculous reasons.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Savannah Richards?

    The narrator had to read the book she was given to read. She did the best she could.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Nothing about this book was intriguing, dramatic, compelling. Just a lot of sexual scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    If she's written other books I hope they have depth and quality. Otherwise I won't read them. I'm definitely returning this one.

    "Great Series!"
    Any additional comments?

    The main female characters in the series are ones you can identify with and it compels you to want to listen to the entire series in one sitting. I would definitely recommend these books, great beach read with the summer season starting (finally!)

    "A sweet intriguing surprise with intense romnce"

    I really liked this story because it was intriguing from the start. It captured my interest and took me on this little adventure into love with Ryan and Julie. The passion between them is palpable. It was just so intense. Once you listen you will know what I mean, I wanted to scream at Ryan for Julie. Ryan is a redeemable likable guy and you will see why Julie falls for him. The narrator really made the characters come to life. I will definitely get the next story in this series.

    Predictably sweet and loving...sweethearts live happy ever after.

    Very interesting and easy to listen to. The storyteller did a great job with the different characters' voices. The storyline was great. It was whimsical and romantic. A good read!
