Who says you can't mix business with pleasure?
As the CEO of a large tech company and a semireformed bad boy, Ethan Hill is used to calling the shots. But when he's sentenced to work 200 hours of community service - for reckless driving, of all things - this chief executive needs to keep his real identity under wraps. Which gets increasingly difficult when he can't stop thinking about his sexy new (temporary) boss.
The moment Graciela Ramirez meets Ethan, she's tempted to throw all professionalism out the window. She can't afford to get emotionally involved, but after a steamy session behind office doors, a no-strings-attached fling might be exactly what they need. He'll protect his secret. She'll protect her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

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
I really didn't expect to like this listen as much as I did but it's all thanks to Mia Sosa's well crafted loveable characters, their unusual journey to the HEA and the awesome narration. Drool worthy, super hot and sexy Ethan has been a bad boy but now he's paying for it - as CEO of a very successful Tech Company he can't afford the scandal of yet another speeding ticket so chooses the lesser of two evils.... Community Service. The non-profit Charity that's been blessed with his presence is Learn To Net which is spearheaded by a very sexy, curvy and beautiful brunette called Graciela and she's the only reason he's picked her Charity..... he thinks he might as well 'enjoy' himself while he's there.
However, what he wasn't prepared for was the instant chemistry and sexual attraction that heated up between them but, because he'd joined them undercover and using a different name, he also wasn't prepared for the debilitating guilt about all the lies that were spilling out and piling up. And, because of this, he fought their attraction for quite a while.... until Graciela made him an offer he couldn't refuse.... no string sexcapades until his 200 hrs sentence was up. But what should've been a casual fling quickly turned into much more as the passion, sex, conversations and tender times brought them even closer together.
Ethan had to do both his own CEO job and the Charity's job too and Ethan found that he actually looked forward and enjoyed the freedom of being his old self - able to brainstorm and toss ideas around at the Charity. He also mixed with the people who came in to learn about computing - especially the elderly group of women who teased, leered and had witty and sassy conversations with him. He believed in the good work that Learn To Net was doing but they were facing closure if they didn't get funding.... funding he could so easily provide but his hands were tied by his secrets and lies. But, as always, secrets get found out and the fallout was devastating and heartbreaking to both of them.
Worth a credit? This listen was very enjoyable, funny, sexy and romantic with a good cast of secondary characters - including Gracie's interfering parents who desperately wanted Grandbabies, a loveable charming and hard working hero whose character was transformed by the deep love he felt for a strong heroine and the dual POV awesome narration brought it all to life. So, IMO, a creditworthy listen but, at only 6 hours, it was a short listen (I wanted more) and, if like I did, you're hesitating then put it in your Wish List and wait for a sale..... but please don't miss it.
