Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

Cute premise but some of the side characters were really horrible people. Some of them were horrible supposedly because they cared for Min. Some were just flat out horrible. The narrator was okay but she was hamstrung by the writing. I should've read the story instead of listening to the audiobook. That being said - loved Cal and Min.

No one had ever looked at her and seen perfection - until now. Delicate, titian-haired Theresa Noble has met her father’s associates in the past, but the gorgeous, Italian-born Sandro De Lucci leaves her speechless. Eighteen months into their marriage, however, Sandro has turned to ice. Desperate to escape a relationship that has proven to be as stubbornly passionate as it is cold and hateful, Theresa summons up the courage to ask for a divorce. But before he’ll grant her request, Sandro demands something from Theresa: a son.

I first came across The Unwanted Wife in Kindle Unlimited. Since I'm a sucker for the angsty stuff as long as it has a good HEA, I liked it.

When I finally got around to getting an audible membership, I saw The Unwanted Wife offered for $1.99 - of course I had to get it. Okay, full disclosure - first time I heard Justine Eyre, I couldn't make it to the end of the chapter 1. Months later, I decided to give the audiobook another try and I have to say Justine Eyre's narration grew on me. She just fit the book.

Very much enjoyed it!

Ruby Scott is months behind on rent and can't seem to land a steady job. She has one chance to turn things around with a big audition. But instead of getting her big break, she gets sick as a dog and completely bombs it in the most humiliating fashion. All thanks to a mysterious, gorgeous guy who kissed - and then coughed on - her at a party the night before.

Overall, an enjoyable story. I like Helena Hunting and have purchased her audiobooks before BUT I must comment on the narrator pairing. At least 4 of her audiobooks, including this one, have Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan (love him!) as narrators. Ms. Dioro's voice makes me a little crazy and not in a good way. Sometimes her voice gets soft so I have to increase the volume to hear her then it goes back to normal/louder which means I have to adjust the volume again. And don't even get me started on her pacing...let's just say I'm grateful I can speed her up to 1.25x. 2* for Rose Dioro, 5* for Jacob Morgan
I wish this book good be redone with a Muffy Newtown (Erin Mallon) and Jacob Morgan pairing.

There are many rules a priest can't break. A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God. I've always been good at following rules. Until she came. Then I learned new rules.

Priest is a scorching hot listen. Jacob Morgan (although I swear it's Zachary Webber!) and Elena Wolfe are amazing. Sierra Simone wrote an incredible love story. It was different - sometimes shocking and whole lot of sexy.
THIS AUDIOBOOK IS SOOOO GOOD!

You have the right to remain sexy. Anything you say can and will be used to get you in my bed. You have the right to use my body to give yourself a delirious, life-changing orgasm. If you have trouble...don't worry, I'm a bit of an expert in that department.

Alexander Avery is rich, powerful, and the sexiest man Angeline Hemming has ever laid eyes on: a man like every woman dreams about. Angel is not immune to his sensual and ruthless pursuit, and Alex is intoxicated by the beautiful doctor - overwhelmed with desire like he's never known. As the profiling case Angel is working on gets more and more dangerous, Alex finds himself filled with unfamiliar panic and emotional turmoil; his need to protect her goes against Angel's adamant insistence that she doesn't need his help.

If not for Zachary Webber, it would've been a DNF. He was great as always. Jesse Briar's performance was a bit boring.

The story was okay. Angel is supposed to be a doctor of psychology but acts like an immature teenager. Love Alex - he deserves better.

He has a girlfriend, and she's never been kissed. He's sullenly sarcastic, and she's earnestly empathetic. He can't stop thinking about her. She knows she should keep her distance. Nevertheless, when opposites attract, the results may be unexpected, but they're also undeniably magnetic.

Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole. He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards. He's cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes. And I hate him. He's always loved getting under my skin, and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed. I've succumbed to his manw**re ways, but that doesn't change a thing. Because the King is about to get played at his own game - and lose.

After a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. She has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane's disdain; therefore she's unprepared for the reality that is Duane's insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks. Not helping Jessica's muddled mind and good girl sensibilities, Duane seems to have gotten himself in trouble with the local biker gang, the Iron Order.

I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma's boy? Check, check and check. Now I can't stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It's just a harmless crush, right? It's not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It's not like I'm going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he's the doctor. Shoot. Me.

A sweet, funny, sexy story - absolutely recommend Wrong! Both the ebook and the audiobook are outstanding. Erin Mallon does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. I love her Luke voice. 😍 Okay, I'm not crazy about the big age difference between the H & h but it's an integral part of their story.
