The Armstrong brothers are wealthy, wild-at-heart bad boys - until their father's will demands they prove themselves and marry in order to inherit their fortune.
Eldest brother Cooper channels his reckless spirit into becoming CEO of his own airline. The only thing better than the adrenaline rush of flying is his one-night stand with a stunning stranger. At first he doesn't recognize the fiery barista he clashes with years later at an airport coffee shop. But when Stormy Halifax turns up as his new house sitter, Cooper knows she's his Cinderella. And he doesn't just want her in his mansion. He wants her back in his bed.
Stormy can't believe she's living under Cooper's roof. Gorgeous and arrogant, he's convinced she'll surrender again - and he's right. But just as Stormy is succumbing to a world of pleasure, her trust is shattered. And the biggest challenge Cooper has ever faced will be proving he wants Stormy, now and forever, for all the right reasons.

This is my first Melody Anne story, and overall it was good, but compared to other contemporary romances in my library, this one did leave me feeling little underwhelmed. It had a decent plot, the characters were likable, and there is some romance, but there all on the milder side. I give this story three stars, had it been more intense, or exciting, it would have easily been a four star story.
On his deathbed, the father to the Armstrong brothers gives his sons some shocking news about his last wishes. In order for the brothers to receive their inheritance, they must clean up their act, become successful members of society, and marry. The brothers collectively are not happy about the news, and each handle it their own way. Six months later, Cooper Armstrong is out with his brother, having a good time, when he meets a beautiful women. They talk, flirt, and spend the night together, but they never give their names. The next morning, while Stormy is doing her walk of shame, she tells herself this was just a one night stand, and she will never see her dreamy green eye guy again. Six years later, Stormy is working at a small latte shop located in the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and is shocked speechless when she comes face to face with her dreamy green eye guy. She gets frazzled when she realizes this arrogant, confident, sexy airplane pilot doesn't remember her.... at all. That's fine with her, she just won't tell him, and will deflect all his advances. Through a series of unfortunate events, they end up in the same house, and when recognizes finally sets in, the games begin. Along the way, there's plot twists, romance and a few sex scenes.....some more steamier than others.
This is the first story I've listened too narrated by Teri, and I thought she did a great job. Yeah, I would have preferred a m/f dual narration, but Teri did a great job on both the m/f characters.
While the story did leave me feeling underwhelmed, it kept me engaged, the narration was good, and we get insight into the other brothers. They all sounded intriguing, especially Ace, so I hoping the next story will be more exciting. We'll see. I listened for free with KU.
The story was a little weak. My biggest gripe was the names of the brothers. Seriously, what well off parents are going to name their kids, "Maverick", or "Ace"?
And then there was all the sex. Graphic sex.
I'm not a prude, but that wasn't what I was looking for. I guess it's my own fault, and I should have read more reviews, or sought out more information.
All that aside, the narrator did an amazing job. Great inflection, distinct voices for each character, and a pleasant presentation. Great job with that.
As an add on the Anderson's this was a great book with some great ups and downs. I listened to this in audio and I have to say it's the best way to "read" a book. Cooper isn't looking for love when his father thrusts an ultimatum at him on his death bed. That's when Cooper meets Stormy. It's for one magical night. It took 6 years to get them back together and then he doesn't even remember her at first. With some help from Uncle Sherman these two are thrust back into each others lives. With some misunderstandings and a crash will these two ever get their happy ending? You will have on read I find out.
Overall well written and entertaining! Though rather predictable from my life experiences & growing up in a somewhat-identical/very similar circumstance. Realizing that the "majority " do not, this story may seem 'far fetched'. I absolutely suggest this book, enjoy & as always, just like life,(my mantra) "it's ALWAYS an adventure "!!
Can't wait for the other book to come out, looking forward to reading it. I could not put this one down I can only imagine and hope that the other one is just as fetching.
I will definitely look for the other books in the series. The characters were charming and definitely drew you into the story. I feel the author did a great job of making sure this book was centered around the main characters, yet made sure we were fully introduced to the characters of future books.
Cooper and Stormy have a one night stand. Years later they meet agoan. Cooper does not recognize Stormy at first, but is attracted to her. Stormy's friend and Cooper's uncle plays matchmaker resulting in Stormy moving in with Cooper. They pursue their attraction till a misunderstanding. Recommend this to contemporary romance readers. This part of a series.
