He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually tense nights in hotels, and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

This book has 2 parts. the 1st part is from the heroine's POV it's light and witty and full of romantic adventure.. you just could never guess what would happen next. the witty banter... their chemistry... the ACCENT... funny and sexy all wrapped up in one.

the second part is from the hero's POV. It's bit darker and more serious... but super super sweet. I swooned.... this book is 5 stars solid, i would rate more if i could.

**heads up** the male narrator might sound abit too old or off for Chance, but stick with it... give the book a few chapters, he actually doesn't sound all that bad. I began to like him :)

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland. The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing. Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all. Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.

This book is borderline cliché... in the most DELICIOUS WAY! The author did such a good job that she managed to turn a very classic cliché romance kind of story (foul mouth cocky rich playboy with a heathy dose of trust issues who's afraid to fall in love with a good girl) into a captivating funny sweet book that kept me reading it all in 1 seating. I didn't sleep a wink. I was giddy the whole time... the dialogues between the two were so delicious it left me craving for more.

JUST GET IT!

IAD is my favourite series. I listen and relisten to everything in this series. I'm so excited that Robert Petkoff has re-narrated this book. I was just thinking to myself what a shame that i had to re-read this one. it's not so easy for a new mom. NOW MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE! I could re-listen anytime i want.

If you love paranormal. action. and STEAMY HOT romance. this book is definitely for you! Kresley wrote this book in such a way that tempt you to finish in 1 seating. And Robert has made this book even more..... <3 *sigh*

it was an enjoyable easy listen. I'm not sure if i loved it.... but i really liked it :)

plots are easy to follow. problems are mostly easily solved. The chemistry between the hero and the heroine was what kept me listening. it reminds me of "Phoenix Pack series".

for some reasons though i feel like the hero needs an accent? or someone from this series needs to have one. it's just weird that everyone has american accent considering they are old mystical creatures who have been around for longer than dirt.. or america lol. other than that, I'm satisfied with the buy :D

Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

Omg!!! Where to begin?? This book totally consumed me. I didnt expect it to be this good!! I finished this book in like less than a day, if only I needed to use the bathroom or work or eat, I think I would finish it in 1 seating!

It is so rare for a book to drag out this kind of emotion from me these days, I've been reading so many books that it started to get predictable, but this book! Omg! I cried And weeped like a little girl! Seriously my husband walked into the room in shock seeing my mascara smeared face, i weeped and told him it was the book, he laughed but scooped me in his arms saying sweet nothing into my ears.. (I love him to death for that) About fifteen minutes later he walked in to check on me again, and I was laughing... It's that crazy good! Seriously, It's sooo good!

It was so different from the moment it started, it kept me on edge, kept me guessing, i squirmed and laughed and cringed and cried both happy and sad tears! it was soooooooooo sweet! I'm sure sth in me melts into a pile of goo when I finished!

I loveeee the characters development and the journey them both embarked on... The writer did a splendid job at revealing climaxes! They were very sneaky! Splendid! And the narration!!! Ughhh The story literally came to life! Not a thing about this listen I would complain if u ask me, besides the fact that it ended!!!

I wish Andrew was real! He was funny, sure of himself, wise, smart, musical and he has a heart of an angel!! And Camryn, the heroine, she's so strong and witty... She's very lovable! I love them both to bits!! Omg how I mourn that book is finished!?

If you liked The Note Book, or The Last Song or sth in that department, this book is totally for you!!!

I read this book in paperback a year ago... And as soon as it's released on audible, I downloaded and finished it (again) in 1 seating!

It was so hot and steamy! It was also so cute these two. The heroine has such strong personality and at times she challenges the hero to his limit. I'm on the edge of my seat the whole time holding my breath listening to them pushing eachother's buttons. It was simply delicious!! And Rydstrom, the hero of this book, he's just.... Ugh! Sooooo hawt! So sweet! He's all male and oh... So sexy!!! Omg

The book is action packed, the narration is spot on as always!! You've done it again Robert Petkoff!!

Tips: read book 5 first!

Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word. Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it - any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

Warning: it's a cliff hanger!!

Please don't let my 3 stars rating stops you from buying this book though. Overall, I do kinda like it. Relisten to it though? Nahh.... But I did enjoy it. Did I want to strangle the heroine at times? Sure! Did the story become so unbelievable sometimes that I just want to smash my phone from pure annoyance? Hell yeah! But.... I did enjoy it.

The story started off with a bang! It came off so strong that the first few hours made me feel giddy and excited, but then that was all the positive reaction I got from it. From there on, it just spiraled down. I found the monologue to be too long, too much, too exaggerated, repetetive and way too dramatic. And the erupt ending didnt help the case.

Just don't expect too much, and I guess you'd enjoy it. It wasn't all that bad. I'm actually looking for the second book now... Unfortunately though I can't find any information about its releasing date, or if H M Ward is ever going to continue at all.
