Gareth Harris is Manchester United's reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll. Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man who was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England.

As a chief stewardess on luxury superyachts, I massage egos, pamper the spoiled, and cater to the most outlandish desires of the rich and famous. I've never had a guest want something I can't give them. Until British businessman Hayden Wolf comes aboard - all sexy swagger and mysterious requests. But guests are strictly off limits and I've never broken a rule. Not even bent one. My family are depending on me and I can't lose my job. Only problem is Hayden Wolf is looking at me like I just changed his life. And he's touching me like he's about to change mine.

Simple story nothing too different from the standard Romance stories Bad dude, angel girl, forsaken desire, happy ending (insert yawn) and you just spent 9 hours listening to Shane East which was the lining of this cloud. (Erin you are wonderful as well but Shane East is like the James Bond to my days)
I normally enjoy Louise Bay books however this one tells me the mortgage payment was due and she had to quickly "knock one up".... wait till its free.

Straightlaced freshman Zooey Cartwright has arrived at UCLA determined to have a heck of a lot more fun in college than she did in high school. What's the first item on Zooey's agenda before classes start in two days? Losing her pesky V card. She's definitely not looking for a boyfriend, so where can Zooey find the right guy to do the deed and move along without a backward glance? At a party thrown by a bunch of football players, of course. Enter Tyler Caldwell. A beast on the field and off, cocky as heck, and often wearing T-shirts with sayings like "God's Gift to Womankind".

I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he's sowed his last wild oat. Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London's sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other's throats.

Would you listen to Endurance again? Why?

I love sports romance and this series is turning out to be the best every. Storylines, although obvious, are interesting and the character conflicts and relationships develop well.

What other book might you compare Endurance to and why?

Probably compare the characters challenges to Sweet Rome (Sweet Home) although these players are all in the same family.

Which scene was your favorite?

Opening scene getting thrown out of the house.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Relisation of his actions and how they affect many

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next in the series - love they are stand alone and amazingly there are no cliffehangers

I don't take women to bed. I take them against the wall, hard and fast, and when I come I make sure they remember. They always do. I'm cocky as hell, I've got reason to be. I own Spades Royalle, the sexiest casino in Vegas. F - k, the sexiest casino in the country. I'm gonna keep building my empire all on my own - my ties with the mafia are in my past, buried with the bones of my family. I like my money clean and my women dirty. That is until I met Emmy Rose.

Would you try another book from Frankie Love and/or Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell ?

Probably not, although the book was average I think for a reader you require basic stories like this to have some real interest or twists however this is fairly average. For me to wish to listen to another book it would have to be free.

What does Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narration was good

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Ah this movie couldn't be rated for public viewing.

Any additional comments?

I would probably read the next in the series if its cheap.

Would you try another book from Lena Skye and/or Connor Brown?

This book is bloody terrible. I expect that the bad review are so descriptive that they probably aren't posted - well audible you should let people speak their mind. When a book is crap its crap and removing a bad review doesn't change that fact

What do you think your next listen will be?

Power Ranges - cause that's 100 times better than this sh*t

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Connor Brown?

Yogi bear

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Ditto on all you have stated

I'm naturally gifted on the field and between the sheets. With flashy cars and enough media attention to put the royal family to shame, I'm the definition of most eligible bachelor. Every man wants to be me, and every woman wants to tame me. Until Camila. The moment I lay eyes on her, I know I have to have her. She wants to keep me at arm's length. I want her naked in my bed. She says I'm bad news. I have three weeks to prove her wrong.

What disappointed you about The Player?

The writing was immature and lame. The story line was mildly better but the character development was so pathetic all I wanted in the end was the book to be over.

What could Claire Contreras have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Stopped writing at the first page

What didn’t you like about Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing ’s performance?

I suppose their voices are fine however the script was so bad I just kept on eye rolling and asking them to hurry up and get a point or conclusion

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

the cover

Any additional comments?

I appreciate good books and diverse stories but this book really shouldn't be in the adult romance section
