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.

Don't let the cheesy-looking cover fool you. This book is really entertaining and has all the elements of a great romance. The characters are very likable and the dialogue is funny and fast-paced. It also had just the right amount of heat - the chemistry between the leads is off the charts! But what I really liked about it was it's length. It packs a meaningful story in 4 1/2 hours instead of dragging things out with a lot of tedious and unnecessary dialogue. It left you wanting more rather than having lulls in the storyline that bore you to tears. I am really looking forward to the other stories in the series.
This was definitely a credit well spent!
When I saw the cover of this one I didn't want to get it but the other reviews were so good I gave it a try. This actually had a very cute story and Savannah Richards is one of the best narrators on Audible! I actually look for books where she is the narrator because she can make a so-so story great. I really enjoyed listening to this one and will get the other 2 in the series (they also have good reviews.) Happy listening!
I am in my late twenties, a commuter, a romantic, & am loving life.
This was a quick book - I was finished with it by the second day. The plot was a bit predictable - but the characters were likable and had great chemistry.
This book could be compared to any other paperback romance novel... but it's always nice to read a simple romance story with a happy ending.
I AM God's BELOVED destined for GREATNESS, Devoted to the purpose of LOVING GOD and dedicated to give Him my UTMOST. I am focused to fulfill my GOD-GIVEN DESTINY and live my life to its MAXIMUM POTENTIAL. I am determined to make a dent in this world as a WOMAN OF INFLUENCE leaving a legacy of FAITH and SIGNIFICANCE.
Didn't like the story or the performance. I dont know why but it was just so boring which is shocking for such a short story.
Yes. It was a quick listen with a good story premise. For the price, it was worth it. It got me through a couple of hours at work.
I thought the voice actor did a really good job. She was clear and great with inflection.
Was this the best book? No. However, it was an entertaining listen.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
For the price this was a very cute story. I liked the characters and the simplicity of the stories. This is the first of the series.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Deception, Comedy and Dij!!
When the leading lady was able to get out of her own way to pursue her happiness.
No extreme reation.
I think people who enjoy reading romance novels would enjoy this book. I like romance novels but this particular story was not that good to me.
Yes. I have listend to The Unexpected Millionaire already and I plan on listening to the final book in the series.
I really can't recall the characters. They weren't that memorable.
I kind of liked listening to it but it wasn't as good as The Unexpected Millionaire so I was also kind of disappointed.
I just hope the last book in this series is better than this one.
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! ;)
Susan Mallery is one of my favorite authors and the also the narrator is one of my favorites as well. This story is definitely not the best work of either be of them but it's ok. The problem is that it is so short that the romance doesn't seem credible. But it's still worth buying if it's on sale and you have 4.5 hours to spare.
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.
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.
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.
