When a Lamborghini Diablo car pulls into the quick oil change shop on Cleveland's west side, Tom Russell immediately assumes this is his old lover, Wells, has come back to torment him. But it's worse. The driver is Wells' arrogant, obscenely rich cousin Law Castille. He invites Tom on a little subtle revenge tip, accompanying Law as his guest to Wells' wedding.

This story could have been so much better. It had potential but it wasn't there. First, there wasn't enough dialogue at all between the two main characters. So, the story became uninteresting very fast. The story had potential if there had been dialogue, communication, and a building romance between the characters, instead of just throwing them together. No substance. The narration was very well done, with what he had to work with. I did not like this story and will not recommend this book.🙁

I had listen to the first book. It was above average. So I was excited to listen to this one. The story started out strong. Scary and frightening, paranormal ghost story, just the kind I like. Even though in a couple of chapters it became slow, it still held up. That is until the end. It SUCKED. WTHeck. It made no sense to me. Unless there's going to be a book 3, which if there is, I dont think I would listen to it. What a kind, caring, and generous man Marcel was. Marcel was a good guy, I really liked, him and had empathy for his character until the end. (How stupid). Now for JH narration, what can I say, he always does a fantastic job bringing each characters to life.

This story could have been so much better. It had potential, but, I wouldn't call this a true love story. First of all, the main characters relationship as kids was just an attraction not them being in love. If the author would have given them a strong love, and connection, as kids, then maybe I could have appreciated their reconnection as adults, but I couldn't. No real connection at all. + it took waaaaay to long for the story to take off, and when it finally did, it was vapid. So, many uninteresting things that could have been left out. One good thing was, the narration, the narrator did a wonderful job bringing all the characters to life, even with an unfulfilling story.😔

Don't ever accidentally fall for the straight guy. Especially when he's trying to pry your family's business right out from under you. I should know. Because when Hudson Wilde walks into my family's pub and begins babbling so adorably, I can't help but fall just a little bit in love. But I'm looking for Forever Man, and the sexy American is certainly not him. He's so confused about what he wants, even choosing something from the dinner menu throws him into a fuddle. But those eyes...how can I resist?

I enjoyed listening to this story. But, it's not my Favorite in this series. Although I liked the two main characters, but, in some of the situations, I feel Charlie should have been more demanding in some of the issues, and not so easy and Compliant. so far, in this series, my Favorite is still Felix And The Prince.(Awesome). I also want to give MP kuudoss on his narration. He always does a fantastic job in bringing characters to life. He is one of my favorite narrator. All in all, I would recommend this book!

Reading the reviews, I thought this would be a story for me. I was mistaken. I didnt have the patience for this story. Toooo slow, and listening to David's POV issues turned me off. It sounded more like his pity party. This may be a wonderful story, I dont know, maybe I should have tried to stay with it. I only made it through chapter 1 and I was done. PS. kuudoos to the narrator.

I enjoyed this story. The narration was excellent. The only thing I'd wished for, was that the author gave us a little more permanent stability for the main characters. Things that were mention in the story. It would have been nice to know that they came to fruition I can't mention them, for giving some of the story away. But, all in all, it was a cute little story.

This was a cute story. I enjoyed the characters. The complaint I would say I have, is, I think the author should have given us more of an ending. Or, at least an epilog with the characters. I must also say, the narrator did a fantastic job with the narration. He really brought the characters to life.
