Prim and proper art gallery coordinator Elle Walser is no good at seducing men. Heck, she's been throwing hints at her boss for months, but he's completely clueless. Desperate to escape her mother's matchmaking efforts, she comes up with a plan - buy some lingerie and climb into her boss' bed. The plan goes brilliantly...until she accidentally seduces a sexy stranger instead.
Bad boy nightclub mogul Gabe Schultz just had the best almost-sex of his life. Too bad the smoking hot blonde thought he was his brother and bolted before he could finish what they started. Though her holier-than-thou attitude puts a serious damper on his mood, Gabe's never been one to give up on something he wants. And he wants Elle. But does a man who lives on the dark side really have a chance with a proper lady?

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
The beginning starts out with some promise. Getting in bed with what you thought was a boring guy and ending up with sex on a stick. What luck I would think, instead she nags and harps and overall makes you want to slap her. Once she gets over herself the romance seems a little more believable. Not much happens after that, Gabe romances and Ella caves then there's a misunderstanding. A typical romance. Both story and narrator were okay, just not good enough that I will continue on with the series.
I think the reason I didn't care for Elle was the narrator as much as the character. For someone who was supposed to be a "lady," she was actually really rude to Gabe in the beginning despite the circumstances. So I really didn't get what Gabe's random obsession with her from the beginning was at all. Any guy I know would have had some backbone and put her in her place. But a "lady" also wouldn't have behaved like such a harpee. I also quickly tired of the two female characters soundling practically like valley girls. I finished the book but I wouldn 't recommend it.
This was a surprisingly entertaining, romantic story about two people who find themselves as they find each other -
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
The good was Chase, he was Hot, all round. The bad was Elle, quite pathetic with her un-trusting nature and felt very weak to me. There were some funny parts but i didn't like the way the story ended so abruptly. Kasha Kensington done a wonderful job narrating and i just love Cabes voice. I will buy the next in this series and hope the lead lady has more guts. :)
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
.lt made me laugh. I wasn't expecting this book to be like it was but I enjoyed it. I do like those books that surprise you.
When Elle got into the wrong bed, the first date, at the beach, and at the tattoo shop. That's more than one moment. LOL
In my opinion it's worth the credit or purchase price.
This story was a bit far-fetched, but the narrator saved the day. Ms. Robert did a fantastic job changing her inflections between the two main characters, so the listener always knows if Gabe or Elle is the focus of the chapter. Outstanding performance!
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
An easy going light and hot listen then, as you witness their shocking embarrassing start, the sweet then disastrous middle and their passionate heartfelt words at the end, you realise that six and a half hours just weren't enough to spend with Elle and Gabe.
There wasn't anything sinister lurking waiting to be discovered but rather a nice contemporary romance with humor, passion, sexy mind-blowing rendezvous and a message that love is worth taking that second chance on.
Worth a credit? As it was under $10 I just bought it and will be seeking out more books by KR when I'm in the mood for a hot fluffy listen.
If you like a fantasy world where "bad boys" are really sweet and sensitive … not to mention, rich … and are the most incredible and expert lovers with no thought for their own pleasure, only yours … this is the book for you. It has some pretty good erotic scenes, but as a story, it was predictable and unbelievable.
