So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I've ever come across.
While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering, and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder to cry on (you know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people! He was supposed to grant me countless orgasms as a thank you, not a jail cell.
After that day, I was mentally plotting ways to strangle him. So what if my body did more than just shiver when he whispered dirty little things in my ear? I can't be held responsible for that.
Even if he and his son were the best things since sliced bread, I couldn't fall for him. No matter what promises he whispered on my skin, my curse wouldn't let us be. I wasn't a damsel in distress - I could save myself, thank you very much - but deep inside, I still hoped Adam Connor would be the hero of my story.

"There really aren't enough words in the dictionary to describe the millions of ways I loved this book. To Love Jason Thorn made me a huge fan of Ella Maise's writing but To Hate Adam Connor may have just made me her book stalker!" (Read. Love. Review.)
this book is about love and hate I thought it was cute funny and in some parts there were intense moments I have to say the book didn't get interesting until the third chapter the first two chapters or about her complaining but once you get past that it's pretty adorable.
Love all romance, dark romance, romantic comedy and suspenseful romance!
***DILF ALERT***. Holy hell!! Adam Connor, I volunteer to have your babies!!!
This story totally rocked! Lucy is one spitfire of a woman and Adam Connor is scrumptious! Another hit by Ella Maise! These movie stars will make you swoon!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Who wouldn't hate this well loved Academy Award winning actor with his handsome face, fit body, sexy smile, drool-worthy bulge, dirty mouth, and his heart of gold when around his cute son.. yup awful and definitely not a DILTF.. nope not ever.. sigh. See I can be as delusional as Lucy can when it comes to her best friend's hot as hell sexy neighbor who she'd happily spied on and fantasized about while staying at Olive and Jason's house until the day Adam Connor had her arrested. And Lucy's over imagined Dad she'd like to .... suddenly turned into a Dad she'd like to throttle - and she didn't hold back when it came to letting him know how she felt. But underneath their witty barbed banter and glowering dark looks there was a simmering slow boil of sexual attraction that would, eventually, spill over and create one hell of a passionate flame.
Adam couldn't believe it.. after his bitter divorce he'd been trying hard to be the best joint custody Dad he could be for his five yr old son.. until the day the infuriating, feisty, sharp-tongued stalker/she devil next door had saved his precious son. Then it was Lucy this, Lucy that as his son instantly connected with her, brought her into their lives and forged a loving bond. And he? Well he couldn't believe that, despite all the easily tossed humorous insults and all the 'bring it on' heated hostile glares, there was a strong attraction too. Which eventually led to passion-filled stolen kisses, heartfelt warm feelings as he watched her loving interactions with his son and slowly Adam saw beneath Lucy's prickly defences to her kind, caring and loving heart. And Adam wanted that heart to be his - but it wasn't going to easy and it needed very careful handling as well as a lot of patience and understanding too.. however it would eventually be worth it.
Oh how I loved loved loved this humorous light listen with its deep undertones - the friendship between Lucy and Olive was so believable with their easy-flowing funny banter - the bond that was forged between Lucy and Adam's son Aiden was so sweet and supportive - Adam's love and devotion for his son was inspirational, right and real - and the jousting journey that Adam and Lucy's relationship took was all-consuming as their emotions slowly unravelled into a well-written wonderful love story. There was a bit of angst, a bit of drama, sexcapades, good secondary characters as well as a loveable h/h.. and the cherry on top of this delicious cake was the dual POV narration which brought every scene to life.. and made them pop.
Worth a credit? If you like, or are in the mood for, a highly entertaining and enjoyable Rom/Com.. then they surely don't come any better than this - and yes it was DEFINITELY creditworthy.

My first Ella Maise story and it won't be my last. It was funny, steamy and had a lot of witty banter. I found myself laughing out loud. I LOVE IT, but I have to admit I almost did not make it past the first couple of chapters. Some of the dialogue between Lucy and Olive was annoying but once the pool scene hit (around chapter five) the story, dialogue and plot was awesome. I'm really glad I did not give up on this one!
After a break up, Lucy temporarily moves in with her best friend Olive and her husband Jason who happen to live right next door to the sexy movie star, Adam Connor. She secretly spies on Adam over the fence and takes a few pictures. One day while spying, she notices Adam's son, Aiden, is left alone by the pool where he puts on one arm float and gets in by himself. Watching from over the fence, Lucy sees the little boy start to panic when his arm float comes off and he starts swallowing water. Lucy realizes no one is coming to the little boys aid so she goes over the fence, and jumps in the pool to save him. Adam comes out and sees a stalker holding his son, and he has her arrested. Adam hates stalkers, and dislikes Lucy immediately. He's rude, won't listen to her, and her admiration for him quickly turns to hate. (Heck, I wanted to hate Adam.) After five hours in jail, Lucy's livid. Adam does end up dropping the charges when he learns the truth from his son and nanny. The next day, Adam and Aiden go next door to thank and apologize to Lucy. Lucy accepts, but they are hostile to each other. These two clearly do not like each other, but Lucy and Aiden bond well and Adam agrees to let Lucy watch Aiden for a week until he can find a new nanny. He may despise Lucy, but she's proven she will keep his son safe.
Adam and Lucy's hate quickly turns to attraction and the chemistry between them his hot. Adam was a swoon worthy DILF! He knows what he wants and goes for it! Awesome story with a few surprising twists. Well worth the time and definitely worth a credit!
Lidia Dornet and Sebastian York's performance ROCKED!
Audible Addict!!! My Favorite books have change since joining Audible and my taste for erotic has enhanced! Follow me to the dark side. ;)
This book was sweet, hot and well written. And there is even a cute little person in it. If you enjoy humor with your romance you will loved this one. I'm about to listen for a second time. I'm so excited.
This was such a good book to listen to. The characters were easy to sympathize with and the narration was just excellent. I highly recommend this sexy book!
Really enjoyed this book. The characters where fun and entertaining. The narration was spot on and the overall experience was pleasant. Hope to see more stories from this author soon.
amazing, thrilling book!!!
I don't think I can I say I can compare it to another book, but i would say listen to love Jason Thorn so that you have a better understanding.
That Lidia did a 100% much better job narrating then last times. I also loved that fact that you get so much more listening time of Sebastian York.
It made me cry and laugh so much that I looked like a crazy one. It had some moments where I was at the edge of my seat.
Adding the little boy(Aiden) to the mix was great story.
Book two in an original, well written, character driven, sexy, funny and laugh out loud series. Loveable characters narrated with style by Mr York SIGH and miss Dornet. Very enjoyable !!
"Love love love"
Love Sebastian York. His voice is sin on a stick. I think I had 1 of those mini orgasams when he was doing the sex scenes. Good choice on narrator.
