Gail DeMarco left Whiskey Creek, California, to make a name for herself in Los Angeles. Her PR firm has accumulated a roster of A-list clients, including the biggest box office hit of all - sexy and unpredictable Simon O’Neal. But Simon, who’s just been through a turbulent divorce, is so busy self-destructing he won’t listen to anything she says. She drops him from her list - and he retaliates by taking the rest of her clients with him.
Desperate to save her company, Gail has to humble herself by making a deal with Simon. The one thing he wants is custody of his son, but that’s going to require a whole new image. He needs to marry some squeaky-clean girl who’ll drag him off to some small, obscure place like Whiskey Creek.... Gail’s the only one he can trust. She agrees to become his wife - reluctantly. But she isn’t reluctant because he’s too hard to like. It’s because he’s too hard not to love!

One of my favorites
I love Amy. I actually sought out other books that she narrated. A great narrator makes for the best experience.
The characters were well developed. The narrator gave a great performance.
No, but I have ordered another book where she is the narrator.
I did not have an extreme reaction to the book but I can say that enjoyed it.
My name is Tessie. I'm a married, twenty-something bookworm who loves her kindle, her husband, and hot tea. ✝ Festina Lente.
I'm not sure. It would depend on the person I was recommending it to because of one reasons. The story was wonderful and enjoyable, with chemistry and an interesting, sort of different and new plot. It kept me hooked and I couldn't wait to see how it ended. However, the ending...I have a lot of problems with. It felt rushed and like a second thought. Almost like "Oops! Deadline approaching, have to end this soon!" She introduces a huge problem right at the end and "solves" it (and almost every problem in the book) neatly right on the last paragraph. Too neatly. Too quickly and hardly believable. After learning all about the characters, it just felt like they would have needed more than one single half-day to handle the issue and problem she introduced. She and the characters needed a couple more chapters. I just really had a hard time with it. I'm hoping the next book in the series is a little better.
I enjoyed her style of narration and enjoyed all 10.5 hours of it. Both Simon and Gail were wonderfuly done.
♥♥Hooked on Audio Books♥♥
Welcome to Whiskey Creek! The characters, the town, there's much to do and see and experience here... as an audio book it was a great listen!
For me this was just an "okay" storyline. It had the feel of a book written several years ago. It was just over plain vanilla.
Really good writers draw a story that has melody and it brings you in and draws around you. There is not all this dialog sounds like the characters are 2 wantabe psychiatrist talking to one another.
Narration: I've decided narration is just so personal that I'm not sure how to be fair about narration that is fine, professional but it just doesn't give the book life.
I have nothing against this narrator...maybe it's just the book.
I read so I can write
I often wonder who decides what narrator to use and how they decide it. I know the author, in most cases, has nothing to do with the choice and that many authors groan when they hear their book in audio. I groaned the whole time I listened to this book. Another good story ruined by a valley girl narrator.
Another of those rich handsome man gets together with plain ordinary girl. This book follows the standard theme with no surprises.
Will I listen to the next in the Whiskey Creek series? Probably, but only if it's inexpensive. I won't use a valuable book credit for it.
I did enjoy the book though. Silly me!
