One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world-famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn't plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn't count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she'd ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls - especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn't end well.

One of my best listens in a while, lots of these stories i end up not finishing them, but this one i managed in one sitting.

- Well written and strong portray of the main characters personalities ( even better with narrator as she was natural and not dramatic with the male voices)
- Mal's personality was kept strong, last book David kind of just dwindled near the end of the book.
- Story was kept at a good pace and length

What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He's not used to women treating him like he's poisonous, and he isn't about to let her run away every time he gets close. He's had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime...when this one runs, he gives chase.

In Maid for the Billionaire Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex. Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn't believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men - until she meets Dominic.

Not that remarkable of a story, nice as a easy listen but the plot is not very deep.
The story is short and sweet but the pace is a bit difficult to catch.

Worth the credit?: not that im crying over the $10 but i wished i used it on something else
Would I re-listen?: Probably not
Would I continue with this series?: Might purchase it and give it a try, the plot have been paving to an obvious direction and i wouldn't mind giving it a try.

Somehow this falls into the category of troubled girl, hot guy always by her side.
Typical plot, yet its still draws me in with good writing that clenchs my heart. Its not those books I would like to replay anytime soon, cos its kind of painful too. But definitely a good journey for this kind of story.

One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

Its a nice read, some parts are very sexy and drool worthy. But dragged a bit too slow and i nodded on and off this audiobook.
I wonder if this book is inspired Tyson, as he was Bi Polar as well and got into lots of trouble.
Definitely a nice listen!

Forced together for her brother's wedding getaway, Chase and Madison decide to call a truce for the happy couple.

I picked up most books from Molly Harper or read by Amanda Ronconi. Sadly this is not one of the most entertaining. I hardly remember the story plot after i finished it!

Would I re-listen to it? Not really, it havent let much impressions or parts I would want to listen to.

Is it worth a credit? No, I would prefer to use my credits on Harper's other works!
