Lily LeBlanc isn't versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she's definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend's boyfriend's best friend? What could possibly go wrong? NHL player Randy Ballistic lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound.

Narrative of Violet was way too winey and not as funny as previous stories. Since Violet wasn’t main character this time was mostly able to overlook it.

Miller "Buck" Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed-up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he's ready for a girlfriend. A real, nonbunny girlfriend to take on dates and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation. Miller thinks he's found that woman in his teammate's sister.

Loved story but Sunshine’s voice was annoying and she sounded like a child. The story was good enough that I eventually was able too overlook the sound of the voice. I truly did laugh out loud numerous times

I almost didn’t finish after the author revealed huge portion of ending in the beginning and then the rest of the story was a long flashback leading up to what was revealed in the beginning. What was revealed was too much because it was a huge part of the story, so when I did listen till the end everything else that was revealed was not as climatic and didn’t feel surprising at all. . It was okay but predictable with many things. Performance was excellent and the performance is what encouragedme to finish the book.

New Orleans belongs to me. You don't know my name, but I control everything you see - and all the things you don't. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn't need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn't know she caught my attention. She should've been more careful. I'm going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It's time to collect what I'm owed.

Book ends on a cliffhanger and definitely not s standalone book. However, although that is annoying about this book that’s not what angers me. Mount coerces her to have sex with him to pay off her deceased’s husbands debt and threatens if she doesn’t people she cares for will die. He torments her sexually but still not by choice and when she is on the brink of being defeated and screams for him to just do it (e.g., to get it over with and get her release) Mount thinks he’s not raping her because she begs for it. The fact that he kidnaps her and controls her every move doesn’t occur to him as being abusive. Then she is slowly missing him even though she can’t stand him. I’m angered at the book implying a woman isnt raped if she eventually enjoys the sex act after being kidnapped and forced to do things she would never had agreed to. I’m angered at the message this sends to male readers permitting them to take what they want because she will eventually like it. I’ve enjoyed other books this author has written but this one feels like it has crossed the line from control to downright abuse but finding ways to justify this abuse. Also, Mount’s voice sounded weak for the character he was playing.

Initially, the narration early on was a little annoying with the band characters sounding more like rebellious teenage girls than young adults, but as the web of the story started to take shape and became deeper, the narration improved about 1/3rd in. Emma Scott's writing then became poetic and profound making you FEEL the emotions being described. I couldn't turn it off even though I shed many tears. Beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. Been a long time since a story has touched such a raw chord inside me. If you can handle the sadness much worth the credit to hear the beautiful story surrounding the sadness.

Liked story, but dialogue was very dated and reminded me of my great grandparents dialogue and narrator's voice was more of a witty grandmother than a young single person and didn't fit character's age in story. However, because i liked the story i finished it. Slang and "figures of speech" could use an update to current trends and a younger sounding narrator would significantly improve the listener's experience.
