When Brandi Michaels discovers her fiancé hopping a flight to Vegas to marry his girlfriend, she pawns her engagement ring, buys herself a fabulous outfit, and spends one sultry night in the arms of a gorgeous Italian stranger named Roberto Bartolini. When Brandi becomes the mark for a killer, she has no choice but to turn to Roberto – a man who’s destined to be either her savior or her downfall. But one thing’s for sure: She’s not going down without a fight.

The book was fine. I enjoyed it from start to finish, but it took me several months to make it through. This was a book that I could only tolerate in small doses, it was just to trite and obvious. I wanted to like it, it had all the elements that I want it this kind of book: the mystery, the romance, the doodah of an ex; but the whole was not more than the sum of its parts. It was not a waste of a credit, but just be aware that this is what I often refer to as a "cotton candy" book. Light, obnoxiously sweet, and only to be handled in smallish bites.
I liked the relationship development, they were a great team. I did not especially care of the Narrators version of an aristocratic italian count accent and speech patterns, but it was not so bad that it keep me from enjoying the story.
Mu favorites are paranormal, supernatural, post-apocalyptic, and horror!
I suppose this book was pleasant and enjoyable in the moment, but i currently find myself shocked that i just read it earlier this month and already cannot remember much of it. So it was not very memorable! I suppose that this makes me less qualified to write an accurate review with any further details. It was short and easy to read and i may read it again in the future -especially since i cannot remember it already!
with a name like Brandi I suspected an airhead character. Not so, this is a fun story that grabs you in from the beginning and you want to see what will be around the next corner. The characters have more depth than first thought. Some people can tell a good story about anything, I suspect Christina Dodd is one of them. I always enjoy Amanda Ronconi's reading. She knows fun when she sees it.
Tries to be sexy and feminist. Fails at both. On the upside, the reader was great.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
What a daily deal, I loved this listen. So funny and sexy with fantastic narration. The story is plausible, the characters are funny and fight for each other for love! At times I laughed so hard I cried....worth every penny of that $2.95 price tag!
Funny, fast moving, charming
I liked the main characters.
No. She did a fine job, except the Count's accent.
I have read several of Christina Dodds historical romances, so being a little familiar with her books decided to take a chance on this one. As with the Regency books, this one has the Italian Count instead of a Duke, Earl etc. It is a modern fun, light hearted take on the same type of book. Sometimes this type fits the bill after serious books. I enjoyed it.
creative and artistic
I love witty dialogue, especially sarcastic clever wit. It was clever.
Light hearted read.
I loved her voice for the mother and the main character. At first I wasn't crazy about the men--but as the story went along I didn't think about it so much.
This made me laugh. And I immediately looked for other books in this series. I've read other Dodd books and I enjoy her stories. But because of the light-humorus-fast paced nature of this book I really enjoyed this one.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and the narrator did an excellent job! Loved the plot; it kept you entertained thru the whole book!
