When Treat Byrnes walks into her bookstore café, Eve Alexander wants to eat him up. Bad boy isn't her usual flavor, but for the sexy contractor, she's willing to take a walk on the wild side. Treat has a history of falling for damsels in distress, but Eve doesn't need rescuing. Not even when her café is sabotaged. Only when Treat finds out the saboteur is his own mother, he knows he has to do something before things go too far.

Where does Close to You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First

What did you like best about this story?

The persistence of old man pursuing Treat's mother.

What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

I have nothing to compare it to but at least she made the story come alive for me.

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

The sexual interaction between Eve and Treat.

Any additional comments?

This was my first time with an audiobook and even though it took me a while to wrap my imagination around having a female voice in my head, I thoroughly enjoyed it and even posted a recommendation on Facebook. Loved all the characters, even Treat's mother. At least it all worked out in the end. Loved Eve's friend (gonna have to get me some sexy shoes :-) ) This book is a must read, or should I say a must listen. Good job Xe.
