A single glimpse in her innocent eyes and he knows he has to have her. After one night of unbridled passion, Kaylee slips away to live her quiet life, but the paparazzi has other ideas.

loved this little story. If you want a hollywood story with a bit of steam with a swoony hero, then look no further.

my only comaint is i wish it was longer. the characters weren't overly developed and it seemed pretty quick. so I guess I would have liked more character development to actually feel them connecting and falling in love rather than just sort of being told. But definitely still a fun light hearted story so have at it if your into hollywood romances. those are always fun, regardless!

Pierce Lancaster is bad news. Spoiled. Entitled. Sexy as - he's exactly what I don't want in my life. What I don't need. I'm not the girl he knew before. I've changed. But he hasn't. He's trouble filled with empty promises. I've come too far to fall back. Yet I can't seem to stay away. I can't say no. I am addicted to Pierce Lancaster.

I wasn't sure I'd like this story or not. both pierce and lindsay are in the previous book but never cared too much about them as came off as spoiled kids.

and they are, but this is a story of 2 broken people who were ignored and all their families did was throw money at them all their life. both felt unwanted and useless until tragedy. all I can say is this was such an emotional book. these 2 characters grew on me and we get inside their heads and begin to understand them. and you get to experience the transition as they grow up and learn to care for each other and mature.

and the big build up at the end! wow! did not see that coming. narrators are top notch. wasn't sure about Joe Arden playing pierce as he was a more immature cHaracter imo but damn he pulled it off! narrators alone are worth listening this book.

the ending was maybe a bit sudden and wouldn't have minded a longer epilogue.

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.

I have enjoyed this whole series and characters. Hothead was no exception. who doesn't enjoy a good fake relationship trope?!

I dont want to give too much away but this was a fun listen for me. has some drama, romance and made me laugh. I was in the mood for a lighter listen so this fit the bill nicely. so if your in the mood for a romance that has some nice lol moments and smoking hot sex scenes then give it a listen.

Rule Number 1: Do Not Sleep with Clients. I was the best agent in the industry. More ruthless and cutthroat than any arrogant bastard you'd ever met. The top actors in Hollywood came to me to get signed. When I saw James Ryne, America's Sweetheart, standing across the bar, I wanted her body like I'd never wanted anything before. I broke rule number one. But, after all, I was a man. No one had ever mistaken me for a saint.

I enjoyed this book but I feel the Male narrator did the story a disservice. I would have given a higher rating if the narrator was a bit more age appropriate. he sounded old and it just didn-t do it for me. so I did knock down a point for performance because narrators make or break a story so important to pick someone who fits the character.

story was engaging. characters likeable. abby owned the female parts so I was able to enjoy those parts. marni mann is a great author and have read or listened to most of her books. glad to see the 2nd in series has better narrators!

It wasn't supposed to be like this.... I wasn't supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at 28. And I most definitely wasn't supposed to hit Hollywood's resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot. Now I'm stuck in his apartment, taking care of him while he's incapacitated. Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I've had a crush on forever, doesn't sound like a chore, right? Wrong. Gabriel Evans is rude and crude and drinks way too much, and as soon as his foot is healed I'm out of here. So why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds?

I loved this book. It kept me engaged from the very beginning. It is a fun romantic comedy. of course, extremely unrealistic but isn't that why we listen to these books? to indulge in a fantasy?

both characters were very likeable and you root for them to get it together. I laughed, I cried and everything in between.

if you're looking for a romantic comedy this is definitely one to choose. I enjoyed that it got right down to their first meeting in the first chapter and I never felt bored or felt the story dragged on. It was well paced.

only thing is if someone ran over my foot id probably spend less time arguing with person who ran over my foot and get my ass to the hospital because holy pain!

of course, Gucci the pygmy goat stole the show. now I want a damn goat! anyways really enjoyed this story.

loved this book from the very start. the heroine was strong all the way through. I didn't have many moment where I wanted to shake her and be like just stop! she is level headed, smart and thinks things through.

plus it is one of my fav tropes brother best friend and sister. ohh Yea! seriously fun read. pretty low angst but there is still a bit of a conflict. and the ending and reveal were not too predictable. anyway highly recommend. plus if you have read the previous wright books, you get to revisit the characters you grew to love.

narration was obviously top notch so just use the credit and enjoy! And just what I needed after my pervious intense listen. 5 stars.

I enjoyed this book a lot. But it could have been better with a male narrator doing the male parts. andi arndt is a top notch narrator and does an excellent male voice during dialog. But it just gets confusing differentiating which character's pov it is. so I gave the performance 4 stars because of that.

great hero. the heroine sis annoy me a bit at times. ( she seemed to cry a lot lol). But she was a strong character and stood hee ground with the hero which I appreciated.

if recommend this book. it's a fun light hearted listen.

Antonio has always put business before pleasure, but, for the first time, he wants both. After proposing a merger of their two companies, Antonio is hoping Lauren accepts his offer so he can show her the world and together they can have it all.

This conclusion to this duet was only okay for me. I guess I was expecting a bit more suspense after that cliff hanger. that was resolved within an hour into the book which to me was rather lackluster. then it didn't seem anything much happened after that.

It is hard to explain without giving away spoilers. I guess if your expecting something exciting and suspenseful after that ending in acquisition, then keep your bar low. But Antonio is a very swoony and romantic hero so I enjoyed that. The narration was top notch, but id probably only rate this 3.5 stars. honestly it could have just been one book and id had probably given a higher rating. I just got bored for a bit in the middle. overall It's a nice little love story.

It's just a docuseries about your career as an OB/GYN, they said. It won't interrupt your life during or after filming, they said. It's a great opportunity for the hospital and your practice, they said. Well, they - the television executives who seem intent on ruining my career and personal life with a fair number of creative liberties - lied. Now I'm stuck dealing with the consequences of believing them. Instead of being known as Dr. Will Cummings, head of obstetrics and gynecology at St. Luke's Hospital, I'm now being called Dr. Obscene.

really liked this book. had been hoping it would be on audible and was so excited when it finally was. I read the reviews the male narrator had a terrible female voice. I thought to myself "oh it can't be that bad." then I heard the female voice and cringed knowing I'd have to get over it if I'm going to endure it for 8 hours. his voice is fine otherwise. female narrator I liked a lot.

if you can overlook that, it is an enjoyable book. funny and heartfelt. if you read the summary then you know what it's about and should just read or listen to it. can't wait for the next book in the series that will have a different narrator, thankfully.

Every girl has dreams of meeting Prince Charming, or at least I know I did. A fairy-tale-like meeting of love at first sight. Real life and fairy tales are very different. I'm just a small-town Indiana girl who had a chance encounter with one of Hollywood's golden boys. You may think you know where this story goes - not even close. Life is different. Marriage is hard. It's even worse when you're strangers.

So I wasn't sure if I would like this book or not. 16 hours is pretty long for a romance book in my opinion. But one of my favorite tropes is Hollywood actor/producer falls in love with girl next door type. if you're into modern type fairy tales, this is the book for you. I honestly never got bored and devoured it in a couple days (I listen to books at work). Weston was a totally sweet alpha. I liked him a lot. Wren was great too and didn't put up with his bullshit. I don't want to give away anything but definitely worth a listen if your in the mood for a light read.

Jeremy York had 2 chapters in this book, so mostly told from wren's pov. her male voice could better but I've defitely heard wayyy worse and didn't take away from the book so it was fine. I don't think York's voice would have suited Weston that much so that was fine by me.

also loves all the secondary characters and wouldn't mind visiting this verse again with one of them.

I was sad when it was over tbh. but onto the next book.
