One crazy dog - one awkward vet - one naked pool guy - and one life-changing month in California to make friends, fall in love, and twist fate.
Who gets paid to walk a dog and recline by the pool all day? Sydney Montgomery, aspiring museum curator and professional house-sitter, that's who.
When her aunt and uncle need a house and dog sitter for 30 days in Palo Alto, Sydney can't turn down the chance to be closer to her sister in L.A. Within 24 hours of her arrival, Sydney's cleaning up runny dog poo, taking an uncooperative pooch to a handsome yet awkward vet, and being rescued from the bottom of the pool by a naked "pool guy."
Lautner, "pool guy," has a hot body and a cool persona. With eyes of iridescent blue oceans, he is mesmerizing, sexy, and addictive. What he is not - the pool guy.
Dr. Lautner Sullivan is a college wide receiver turned pediatric resident. He knows how to woo a woman with flowers, pastries, and sweet tea. Lautner is every girl's dream, but Sydney is not every girl. She's immune to rainbows, fairytales, pixy dust, and the "L" word.
The attraction is immediate, the friendship is earned, and the love is undeniable. Thirty days is their forever, but forever is not long enough.

Undeniably You is one of the best audio books that I've listened to in a long time! It has everything - fun and laughter, love and passion, well-developed characters - along with an unbelievable story line and plot! Every once in a while, Jewel E. Ann does a crazy plot twist that shakes you up, makes you mad, or has you laughing in your seat. Tracy Marks did a remarkable job voicing these characters so that you feel like you're right there with them. Five stars aren't enough for the author and the narrator! I can't wait to read and hear from both of them!
I was given a copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
I’m an avid (or rabid) reader & audiobook listener when I find time between being a wife, mom, nana and my full time job.
I went in to Undeniably You expecting fun banter, sexy, sweet.
Sydney is spending a year house and/or pet sitting while saving to finish college.
She Meets a pediatric resident and swears to keep it light and move on in a month....
There is also a cute veterinarian that she takes the dog to who is interested...
There is great sexual tension.
About midway through the book the heartache begins. A beautiful ache that draws the reader in. I loved how different this story is, unexpected! I went in thinking fun (which it is) but then came the tears!
I listened to this as a re-read on audiobook this week and enjoyed it all over again! Wonderful narration!
"My Whole. Entire. World. Is in your eyes. My past, my present, my future … it’s all there. When I’m lost, I find myself in your eyes. I see my heart beating in your eyes. I see everything beautiful about life in your eyes. I see an ocean of infinity in your eyes"
I have more the 300 books. I listen to 3 books per week and in all this time, I never wanted so badly for the heroine to end up A-L-O-N-E!!!
She is so childish, insecure, selfish and whiny that she makes up her problems and drama, so so strongly believes in them that at the end, they become real.
She did not deserve a hot as hell "pool boy"/Doctor nor the sweet and caring vet she met her first day at Palo Alto. I will not give any "spoilers", it really does not deserve even that...
Pity I lost my time being enraged with a weak heroine for so long. I would definitely look for another book, if I were you.
It started with sh*'"t (literally in chapter one) a little funny, sweet but from the middle to the end it really turned into real sh'"t.
I Loved this book, but at times hated Jewel for the twist and turns this book will take. This book has it all humor, love, passion and amazing characters you will fall in love with and who can forget the dog SWARLEY! About half way thru the twist will come and the heartbreak will start, but hold on it will be a HEA.
Both Jewel E Ann and Tracy Marks did a amazing job with this book. I cant recommend this book enough.
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
This epic NA love story starts off with a present day Prologue.... a Wedding, a Bride and all the trimmings and then chapter 1 goes back three years prior to that - to the funny 'mistaken identity' initial meeting of Sydney and Laurent. Which is quickly followed by a disastrous lol surfing first date and then continues to meander as they quickly grow closer, share lots of passion filled days and nights, fall in love..... and count down the days when they'll have to part. But Fate, Destiny and rotten timing were about to dish up some terrible twists.
Towards the end of part 1 there was a WTF moment as a 'present day' chapter slips back in picking up from where the Prologue left off as Sydney walks down the aisle to meet her groom..... and there's a nasty evil "say what?!?" twist waiting for the unsuspecting listener. All I can say is when this scene plays out and you're left bereft and confused.... don't give up hope of a HEA - trust that Sydney and Laurent will overcome many obstacles, endure heartache dramas and pitfalls and even lose each other for a while. But hold on tight, through the skilfull storytelling of Jewel E Ann, their love will survive the passing of time, the pain of heartbreak, the grief of lost love, the breaking of trust, the 'if only' and 'what ifs' and the different directions their lives took and the wonderful Epilogue will hopefully leave you, as it did me, with that huggable happy feeling that fictional love ALWAYS conquers all.
It's funny, sweet, romantic, climactic, hot, gut wrenching and bitter-sweet too as Laurent has to let go of the woman he deeply loves, and of the happy future they could've both had, because 23 yr old Sydney had pre-planned Life Goals.... which would turn out to be a huge misguided heartbreaking mistake. Laurent is such an awesome Hero.... handsome, sexy, has a body to die for, caring, thoughtful, kind and turns into the perfect romantic Prince Charming - however there were times when I could've decked Sydney for some of her naive selfish actions. Told from Sydney's POV, except a tiny part at the end and the narrator did a great job.
Worth a credit? Yes, the storyline was emotional and unforgettable, the characters were loveable and truly memorable and the narrator was very capable at bringing emotion, heart, heat and depth to this listen which made it come alive as I was able to visualize each and every scene. I embraced, enjoyed and was riveted to this funny, painful, beautiful and practically perfect love story.
House and dog sitting lead to an interesting adventure. When the pool guy shows up, but he's not the real pool guy. But he sure is sexy and the man of Sydney's dreams and they are perfect for each other. But she lives in denial and refuses to give in since the timing is off. When she realizes the truth will it be too late. This I one hot and steamy story.
I liked the light, fun tone of the book.
As for the narration: Undeniably You is another book wonderfully narrated by Tracy Marks.
She made Sydney's antics a treat to listen to.
Nothing narration wise. Tracy delivered a good performance.
Her narration added to the enjoyment of Sydney's antics.
Plot wise: the secret Sydney kept and her reason for it were immature and more fitting to books written decades ago.
Despite her flaws and often immature behavior , my favorite character was Sydney. She never let anything bring her down, she took risks and even when she didn’t land on her feet, you admired her for her courage.
Never keep secrets.
Believe in yourself and the in the strength of the relationships you have.
I am a chronic binge listener and enjoy paranormal romance, MC, science fiction, historical fiction and more
I read the reviews before agreeing to listen to this book in exchange for an honest review and I hesitated because a lot of people commented about the book taking a downward turn near the middle of the book. Most warn to stick with it and you'll be satisfied in the end. I'm a huge fan of the narrator Tracy Marks so I decided to give it a try.
The first 6 hours or so was a sweet romance with good sex. Lautner and Sydney have intense chemistry even though they’re both determined to only have a short fling. Then it happened, my chin dropped to my chest and my heart said WTF? Honestly, I cried and cried off and on for a few hours of this book. I was pissed. Why did the author do that. I couldn't help wondering what the other reviewers were talking about saying you'll be satisfied with the ending. I just didn't believe it.
But as others said, you will end up satisfied. It was a painful road but you'll be happy with the ending.
In fact I liked it so much that I already started listening to it for a second time because I think I'll enjoy it more with out all the blubbering.
As always, Tracy Marks does an amazing job narrating this book. All the characters are differentiated and her ability to express emotions in her voice only add to the story. She even does a sweet child voice.
I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
This is a hard one for me to review because I love the story & writing but there were a few things I didn't love as much. The 1st half of the book was funny and hot then it took a turn in a different direction filled with drama and some of it was that "if they just talked to each other they could have saved themselves all that heartache" kinda drama. But I also loved the end so that drama was needed to give us the ending that it had. I felt bad for Dane and was hoping to see that the author wrote him a book too. The narration was good. I'll be checking out more books by this author!
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
The emotions was like a roller coaster, from funny to sad and in between so frustrating. It was predicable, but, I couldn't stop myself from listening. You won't be disappointed in the end.
When Lautner didn't want Sydney to leave him, boy, that entire scene was so sad. There was another seen, when Sydney sees Lautner at the park and he had his arms around his new girlfriend, I felt for Sydney the anxiety and hurt was so real.
This is my first time listening to Tracy, she is now on my favorite list.
Yes, it was perfect!
The book was very well written, I'm wondering if there is going to be a second book. I would like to know how things end with Sydney's sister and Lautner good friend. I would like to see Dr Dean find some one, it was so for him. Sorry, to be a spoiler alert.
