There are only two things Sophie Reid doesn't do: lawyers and sex. When sexy lawyer Ryan Becker stumbles into her life, her first two thoughts are "no" and "definitely no". But after Sophie and Ryan rescue a dog from certain death on the Hollywood Freeway, they share one smoldering kiss. Sophie knows a potential train wreck when she sees it and leaves the dog and Ryan at the pound, knowing she'll never see either of them again.
Poor kid turned corporate attorney, Ryan vowed he'd get an education, succeed, and be welcomed in the front door of the most stately homes in Beverly Hills. Now that his career is on an upward trajectory, he is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, the women he has been meeting haven't set his heart racing.
Enter Sophie. A master of persuasion by profession, Ryan convinces Sophie to pursue their undeniable mutual attraction. But Ryan's quest to be a success at the very occupation she reviles rankles her. When a Hollywood union strikes, Ryan and Sophie find themselves on opposite sides of the bargaining table. Can their sparks in the bedroom overcome their standoff in the boardroom?

Baker for This Chick Bakes - I listen to Audibles while icing cookies and cakes!
An audio book with another bad reader. His version of where to put intonations is awful. The only redeeming value is his voice. Otherwise I would have bagged this book despite the money spent for it.
The story was so so, which again made me think "why keep listening?" But try I did. I got halfway through and just stopped. Nothing kept me hooked into the story, nothing about the reader made me think this will get better, and my time and level of calmness is more important than money spent on a bad book.
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
I loved the beginning of Unlikely, when total strangers Sophie & Ryan saved a dog without thinking of the danger. However, the book went straight down hill after that.
Sophie had a juvenile aversion to lawyers, as if every person who enters law school is a carbon copy of her father. Thank God he wasn't a dentist or Sophie might never have gotten her teeth cleaned.
Author Sylvie Fox seems to have talent, so I would try another of her books - I just like reading about strong women who are more mature and independent.
