They met in the middle of a Boston street mugging. By the time Johnny Anziano helped rescue the new shop-owner on the block, he'd fallen completely in love. But it seemed like the romance was over before it even started. Because in less than a week, Chelsea Spencer was getting married.
Then she asked Johnny for a favor that left the aspiring restaurateur reeling - a "business" proposition a man would be a fool to accept - and a damn fool not to. But the rules of the erotic game they were playing were dangerously shifting with every touch, every glance. Until it was no longer a game at all, and winning meant risking everything.

If you are looking for an easy listen that will leave you smiling and feeling good, this is it and definitely worth every penny! No arrogant male hero here as is the case with most romance novels, Johnny is sexy, sweet and kind from the start!! A man every woman would love to marry!! Its worth another listen...or two!
I truly enjoyed this book. The only problem is the narrator. She reads so slowly that it's nearly impossible to listen to the story. I recommend this book with the disclaimer that the narrator is totally wrong for it.
Always love Suzanne Brockmann books - this one had a nice story that kept you engaged. However the readers slow voice with a lot of stiltedness (is that a word) made it a little annoying and grating. And her voice is so much older than the female character. I don't know if she was trying to modulate her voice like Bostonians but it was not pleasant. Loved johnny though, as a character.
Give me all your hot, sexy romance BUT must be a smart read too.
Sweet, tender, sexy describes "Stand-In Groom". Definitely my favorite romance novel by Brockmann. The narrator is a bit annoying and reads too slowly. Poor narrator aside, I recommend this book.
This being my first Suzanne Brockmann book, I want to read her again. I definitely will try her other titles. Very enjoyable!
