He told me to settle. He asked what was wrong with me. He called me an easy target. That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks. I labeled him an asshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother's fraternity brother. Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

If I could give this a minus star rating I would give it a -4 at least.
I have read/listened my fair share of NA books, and I know they’re all about the drama and immature antics of mostly college kids, but this book takes all that down to a new level. I literally felt my IQ level dropping the more I listened to it.
Lastly, the narrator didn’t do it any favors either. With all due respect, this girl would be more suited for children’s or middle school books. The voices she uses literally sound like she’s impersonating a group of twelve year olds.

Cooper Ryan is living the dream. Between the parties with rock royalty, booze, groupies and performing to crowds of thousands with his band Taint, life seems pretty sweet. There's just one thing missing: the feisty little red-head that took his baby and ran off with his heart. Throwing himself into music is the only thing keeping him sane.

Very few times I quit on a book. I tried to like this one, I gave it a good try at 50%, I just couldn't go any further. The story was so predictable, and it doesn't have the elements to make it interesting. The main female character was simply too annoying for me. Shame because narration was excellent.

The story is not bad, but sadly the incredibly cheesy and corny dialogue almost make this into a parody. And what makes it all worse it's the male narrator reading this incredibly mushy stuff with a slow breathy voice. It really sounds like a joke. The female narrator would have been good if not for the fact that she sounded like she was in a race to finish reading as fast as she could, delivering her lines sometimes emotionless encause of her speed.

I loved this book! Really sweet story about a girl (Daisy), who's been overlooked her whole life. Constantly compared to her beautiful sisters and found lacking, has left her with a damaged self image, a complete absence of self esteem and confidence. She thinks she's not good enough,and so she has an "I give up" attitude towards her appearance.
Mason is a former bad boy/military guy/ underwear model who has just come back to town after many successful years. He finds himself pressured by his brother to "distract" Daisy one night at a bar, and although reluctant to do so, he finally gives in, only to find himself unexpectedly and pleasantly surprised by the girl. Although somewhat charmed, he also finds that the self deprecating woman really needs to see herself in a better light, therefore making it his mission to help her. When Daisy overheard his brother mentioning that Mason was doing him a favor by engaging Daisy, she is not surprised, but appealing to Masons guilt, she asks him to be her fake date at her sister's wedding. And so they embark in a series of fake dates that unsurprisingly start to feel very real.
I loved the premise of the story, the idea that we're always more than just what we look like, but also that people see what we project, and beauty is not always on the eye of the beholder, but also in the way we see ourselves, -if that makes sense-, and we sometimes need someone to remind us of what we are and what we can be.

I really loved Mason. I thought he was the quintessential gentleman with a hero complex. He really wanted to help Daisy, but he also saw beneath the surface, past all appearances. He is inherently good and honest, mature, with no tolerance for shallow, self centered snobs, and really good looking. He was the absolute whole package.
I also liked Daisy, although her self deprecating attitude and lack of self worth were off putting more often than not. I found her frustrating and a little annoying, but otherwise smart and interesting.
Great Narration by Ingeborg Riedmaier.

What an angst fest this was, and surprisingly, I enjoyed every bit of it!! Very much like the first book in the series ("An unwanted wife"), "A husbands regret" follows the same pattern: cold, Cruel, Jerky husband; Mistreated, doormat type wife. A series of events unfold, tragedy strikes, years pass, and finally they each see the light and they both make a 180degree change, so the wife grows backbone and stands up for herself, and husband realizes he's a Jerk and grovels non-stop. I don't know how the author does it, but she manipulates your emotions, so at first you hate the husband but as the story unfolds, you end up feeling bad for him and then just falling in love with him!
This story broke my heart for both main characters, for what they go through; it also made me want to shake them at different times, mainly out of frustration for not being open and say what they feel and for not talking about what happened to them in the past. This whole drama stems from a secret kept, assumptions made, and misunderstandings not being cleared when they should've been cleared.
Anyway the story gripped me and couldn't stop listening until I finished it!
Narration: Since I absolutely disliked the narration of the previous book in this series, I have to say I was very leery of the narration on this one. Having said that, I can report that I'm pleased with Justine Eyre's job with this book. She toned down the groaning and the over the top ridiculous accents and affections when reading this book. Her tone was more subdued, therefore not distracting from the story.
