Olivia hates the singles scene, so when her best guy friend, Ian, offers to be her plus one to a series of weddings she has to attend, she agrees. Although she doesn't want to complicate their lifelong friendship, she can't pass up the chance to have a steady date without the dating drama. What she doesn't expect is to now find Ian so incredibly sexy. When Ian sees his old friend Olivia dolled up for wedding number one, the boyhood crush he once nurtured transforms into smoldering attraction. It doesn't take long for their no-strings arrangement to turn physical. But as Olivia's desire to stay "just friends" becomes clear, Ian's feelings are deepening.

I listened to Tempt the Boss by this author and really loved it. I kinda felt this book was just ok though. It runs kind on concurrent with book 1 so it seemed more like a companion book than a sequel or standalone. I liked Noah and Kayleigh much better in book 1. I liked their story but something was missing for me. If you liked book 1, I would suggest you listen to this one though to get a different perspective on those two.

The narration was great with this one. I love these two narrators together.

I initially wanted to listen to this book because it reminded me of another RH series that I read. I liked this one and it really distinguished itself from the other book I read. I liked that the heroine had a different relationship with each of the four guys even though her relationship with the prince seems to be strained. I look forward to seeing where the author goes with this story. I think the author did a good job of balancing the romance with the fantasy suspense aspect of the story. I would consider this a slow burn and the sexual tension was really amped up in this book.

I liked the narration by Victoria Mei for the most part but I was not feeling that Irish accent. I think she did good managing so many characters. I mean their are 5 main characters then the additional side characters. I do like her narration overall though.

I would just say that I loath the term reverse harem. If you are like me don't let the word put you off of the story. I would recommend this one.

This book was a struggle to finish. The narration was ok but the story had way too many character povs and it dragged in parts. That was disappointing because I am a big fan of older woman younger man. I don't think I would recommened this book to anyone. I would try another book from this narrator but not this author.

I liked this one. I liked Holly and Matt. Holly was a bit insecure about dating because of her douchebag ex boyfriend. He broke up with her because he couldnt see a future with her. Holly gets set up on a blind date with her friend's brother who she thinks is Matt. Matt is a bit introverted and hasn't been on a date in a while. He is encouraged by his brothers to go along with the miscommunication. As you know love, heartbreak and humor ensues. I think these two were such a good couple.I was glad when all the mess was out of the way for them to get an HEA. I was cracking up on so many parts of this book. Like when Matt went on the accidental date, Matt's dirty talk and his babbling nonsense when nervous. 4 stars for the story

The narration was pretty good. I have listened to this pair a few times. I like Charley Ongel well enough. I'm not a fan of some of Thor Tom's narration. There was a scene in a Chinese restaurant and the narration with those characters could have been done better. It was borderline offensive to me. His narration for the main character was good but others need a little work. 3 stars for the narration

Overall I enjoyed this one. The last book by this author I listened to was cute and funny and this book didn't disappoint.

Geeky introvert Tessa Rodriguez will do whatever it takes to get promoted to video game engineer - including create a fandom-based video game in just three weeks. The only problem is, she can't do it alone. Now, she needs to strong-arm, cajole, and otherwise socialize with her video game coworkers, especially her roommate, Adam, who's always been strictly business with her. The more they work together, though, the closer they get....

I really liked this book. I think I have the potential to be a gamer nerd but I have lots of other interests too where it’s not a priority. I loved Tessa and Adam. I love how Adam encouraged Tessa to break out of her shell and she would up finding a group of girls she really likes. Adam was a really break from the typical alpha a-hole guys in most books. He was sweet and a little clueless but it was cute. I can’t stress how much I loved them together.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Selena St. Clair and Jay Skelton. Both are new narrators to me but I think they worked for this audiobook. Their voices matched well with the vibe of the characters. I would listen to a book narrated by these two again.

Thirty days ago, my boss, Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn't refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a "very generous" severance package. The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I've secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

This was a short but sweet listen. I must say at the beginning I really didn't care for Nick but he really grew on me with how he cared for Emily. I loved Emily. She was strong and independent. She could objectively see that Nick was attractive but she didn't want to mix her work and personal lives. Not to mention she as totally oblivious to how he really felt about her. I really loved the scene where Nick recalled when he knew he was in love with Emily and when Emily stood up for Nick. And I loved the ending when she finally opened her presents. That was sweet and unexpected. I kind of wish this was a bit longer because I really liked this couple together. 4 Stars for the story.

You can never go wrong with Erin Mallon and Zachary Webber narrating a book. I really liked this combo for the narration. I felt they worked well for the characters in this story. Nothing more I can say because you know these two give quality narration. 5 stars

This totally original audiobook is about a cock...sure man who is caulky, cocked up, and above all else, confident. He lays it into a lady real good and leaves her satisfied. This is a totally great comedy erotica story that in no way infringes on a certain word, no sirree, not at all.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

It depends on the friend. Kat is so unfiltered it may be a bit much for some people

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I dont know if I would call this a romance. It was more about Kat's relationships with her family and friends. The interactions she had with potential "love interests" were not that romantic.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't imagine anyone else doing the narration for this book except Ramona Master. She did a great job with this one. I was really into this book that I had to pick up the next one in the duet. I wanted to wait and see if it was on audio because that's how good the narrator is but I just had to know what happened next. It ends on a cliffhanger but I would still recommend this book.
