No woman in her right mind would consent to wearing a corset for a month. Especially a "skinny-challenged" woman like Tessa. But dreams of being debt-free dance in her head at the offer of appearing in a reality TV show. "A Month in the Life of a Victorian Duke" is about real people pretending to live on an English estate, circa 1879. And Tessa's leading man - a real-life duke - is so handsome she can barely breathe, with or without the corset....

a newbie author to me ... and i just enjoyed the narrators voice, Ann Marie Lee ... i am hoping she does other reads on Audible? i will see. great cover. funny story ... my Grandma did were a corset all of her life ... i guess she called it a girdle ... i always wondered how a lady of her size and being so elderly ... her fingers hurts so ... with arthritis ... and other health issues ... i am guessing that is was just a way of life that many of us don't get ... i guess somewhere along the time or line she was told or it was made her feel more lady like ... i never actually did ask ... now that she is gone i am curious? great listen. well done. hope to read more from Katie soon enough!

My dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I've got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte's up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.

I love a good audio book ... so glad to see one by Kylie ... she is an author i have been wanting to read more from .. so loved it ... i must say ... and if you know ... i love certain audio narrators Andi Arndt rocks!! but i feel for this read ... i would have pick some one else??! WHAT ... the world hears a gasp ... u r kidding? no seriously ... i tend to think of Andi's voice for more ... romance, romantic comedies (romcom), sexy time reads ...but this one to me ..needed something more gruff and mean ... maybe it is just me? not that it makes the read (listen) not good ... but like u wanted Andi to sound meaner ... hope that make sense. such a great listen ... if you can move over the point of that Andi doesn't sound tattoo-ish enough ... the hard knock life side of the world??! i hope u get me? this doesn't mean i don't or will not listen to Andi any more ... just need to be sure of what is reading from now on. just saying.

Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

Here's what you need to know about me - I'm well-off, well-hung, and quick with a joke. Women like a guy who makes them laugh - and I don't mean at the size of his you-know-what. No, they want their funny with a side of huge, not to mention loyal. I've got all that plus a big bank account, thanks to my booming construction business. Yup. I know how to use all my tools. Enter Natalie. Hot, sexy, smart, and my new assistant. Which makes her totally off limits...Hey, I'm a good guy. Really.

After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don't even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd, and then announce that she's my girlfriend. Which would be fine, except my agent tells me we've got to keep up the act while he's negotiating my contract. Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is - I've been riding the bench for years.

I've been told I have quite a gift. Hey, I don't just mean in my pants. I've got a big brain, too, and a huge heart of gold. And I like to use all my gifts to the fullest, the package included. Life is smooth sailing...until I find myself stuck between a rock and a sexy roommate, which makes for one very hard...place. Because scoring an apartment in this city is harder than finding true love. So even if I have to shack up with my buddy's smoking-hot and incredibly amazing little sister, a man's got to do what a man's got to do.

I wrote this book because when I turned 41 I made a decision to be brave. To live brave - bolder and freer. You see, I thought our lives were supposed to change when we turned 40...but mine didn't. Yet every piece of it changed when I turned 41, when I set out to prove that it wasn't too late for me, that careless words wouldn't stunt me and rejection would not stop me. And maybe, just maybe, it will take you reading about the journey I took to finding my sense of self-worth in order for you to rightfully believe in yours.

wowza ...u might think that this read will be a light hearted, even a funny, hilarious read based on that cover there but think again... it is full of emotions (such rawness, weak, a lifetime of change, learning, experience, she is just so extremely honest, candid, open, out there blowing in the breeze (and I appreciate that ... i truly believe when we are extremely honest and true to every one it might help others to adjust their own lives ... same goes with marriage, why folks walk around acting like it is so easy, they are just plain mean to others, we have to be honest and open to help others, i think if you did u would help others to know it is okay to have a hard time ... u just have to work at it ... give at advice and help ... a life line to trying this or that??!) and bold to reveal so much of her life which can be learning moments for so many, i would think??!) and funny, hilarious, great times, but there are so many dark hard to listen to moments too. Melissa and her book here ... she is so easy to love, u will fall in love with her spirit, her attitude, her gusto!! she is just to awesome. but there are several times in this read ... and I don't see any where that u as a reader might be concerned ... like if you have a (this is something i have noticed most recently a TRIGGER WARNING (I was shocked to see that no one else says anything, i listen or read many things that i don't allow it to change me, effect me, but some might be concerned or shocked or whatever emotion u might feel??!) - be warned ... if u have an issue with suicide talking (i was extremely thankful to hear over and over that Melissa did have a counselor or someone she was working with to help her mental, or whatever issues she was dealing with at that time!! her marriage, whatever.) or chatting about the possibility of it or maybe she didn't feel it was that ...but it is at least thought of or imply there... or maybe it is just me??!) I have never walked in her shoes, or any bodies shoes that has been in a similar situation ... but i was scared ... i don't know maybe GOD would shock u out of that similar situation ...but i don't know??! just know u might wanna be gentle with yourself if that kind of life situation might bug u or work on your feelings and such. i have never walked through the weight life ... i have gained weight since i got married so i know how that feel ... or i can imagine how it feels ... what i felt a similarity to ... was the bullying and how it makes you feel .. how it changes your daily life and keeps you from things you might wanna do ...but don't 'cause the bullies pick on you and keep u from the right path u shouldn't gone ... u change yourself to make them leave u alone.(don't wanna give anything away but??!) like another similar situation that i had in my life was when a past bully approached me and did wanna plead for his forgive of that stupid things he did or might have said ... i had already worked it right in my own mind ... so all good. u just have to remind yourself that it is not you ... it is the bully ... something is wrong within that person not u who is being bullied. i don't believe that being honest and open like Melissa has done is wrong in and way ... it can only help, heal, and give others advice that they can use to learn and ease maybe past issues or heal ones that might happen in their futures ... like because of her pain ... we might get a clue about our own ways or maybe be more sympathetic to others woes. what a listen ... well done and so educational ... what made me use one of my Audible credit to buy this book? the cover ... wait 'til u hear about the cover ... what a shocker??! i think a lot of our lives are or could be shocking to others ... we all put up a front to make others think we are just fine ... when really life or other things are totally weighting us down. way down. life is life. it is never perfect ... and we need to give each other a break ... nobody is perfect, ever!! we are all human and need to us all to be more sympathetic and understanding ... would make the world so so much better if we did!! <3 emotional roller coaster, but in a huge learning way, indeed!!
