Absolutely hated that this was only Part 1 of the story and it was the same story as the Robert Redford movie where the rich man pays a lot of money for one night with a married woman.

I was drunk-dialing my ex the night I met him. Six-three, sexy as sin, and so incredibly rude I could smack the asshole smirk right off his face. Long story short, we got off to a bad start. But when the tabloids interpret our sparring as Drew Maddox "groveling" with a "mystery brunette", his agent presents us both a proposal: shacking up as a couple this summer. It's an alleged "win-win". I need to prove to my ex that I'm fine. Drew needs to prove to his team that he's stable.

Throwing muffins at my ex in the office break room wasn't exactly on today's agenda. Neither was getting asked to take a not-so-voluntary leave from my job as a corporate lawyer. Just until I could get my personal life in order, they said, which you know is code for get your sh*t together. But when life hands you lemons - well, you make for the nearest dive bar and drown your sorrows in wine and gooey grilled cheese. Of course, it doesn't hurt if they're being served by Manhattan's hottest bartender, Jace Whittaker.

This narrator was sooo bad I thought about stopping every time I listened. She spoke so slowly I kept motioning for her to speed up, as if she could see me. About 3/4 of the way through the book, I finally changed the speed on my device from 1.0 to 1.25. This distorted the sound some, but at least it no longer sounded like slow motion. I will never listen to another book narrated by Ms O'Farrell.

Eleanor Briggs just can't help herself. The sight of the man in the high-rise across the street is driving her wild. She longs to feel his touch up close and personal. To win him over, she'll need to shake off her wallflower sensibilities and become the seductress she never imagined she could be. The only trouble will be finding the perfect way to meet him. Sex is easy for millionaire entrepreneur Trey Riordan. Finding something of substance, however, seems impossible. That is, until a simple night of reading at a local coffee shop becomes something far steamier.
