OK, I liked the story and the writing.
DC Cole did a wonderful job narrating this book, he is one of my favourite narrators.
As for Lacy Laurel, I also know her under another made and as soon as l heard her voice I realised I may have a hard time listening to this book in one sitting.
Don`t misunderstand, I like Lacy in the most part, but I do have trouble listening to her in long sittings.
That could be just me, others may enjoy this audiobook far more than I.

Bane: Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief, and a fraud. Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all - looking humbled. Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally - cut boys from my life. Permanently. Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

You know, when you have a feeling about a book, maybe because you had a small taste of character in a previous book, or just because you know the author will never give her readers anything but her best.
Well you won’t be disappointed, Bane is everything and so much more.
Destiny, Bane and Jesse had a path and their path was always destined to cross.
Sometimes two very different, but equally damaged souls are destined to meet along the way and put each other’s broken pieces back together.
It’s never easy and most definitely never boring, and what a story these two have.
This story has it all, it’s an emotional roller coaster, heartbreak, sadness, grief, hope, lust and most importantly LOVE.
Leigh Shen, I believe has offered up her best work to date.
As for the narrators, just outstanding, they are perfect for Leigh Shen characters.

Ricki Sparks knows she can make a mean red velvet cake but can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into a blind date. When she opens the door to see the man she’s been secretly sweet on since the first day he walked into her bakery, she fears her heart will be demolished. At least she knows she’s in for a wild ride. With a past like his, private investigator Garrett McBride doesn’t feel he’s worthy of a good woman’s love. Especially not Ricki, the sweet, beautiful baker. But its not just her delectable baked goods that keep him coming back and it isn’t long before he admits to himself that he wants her for his own. He never suspects that the greatest danger to her may come not from himself, but from the deceitful woman Ricki has befriended.

While preparing to graduate from culinary school and building up the courage to make a move on her hot, sugar-cookie-smelling pastry instructor Marco, she can't wait to finally have the GREAT life she's always dreamed about, instead of just the good one she's been living. Always known as the quiet ninja, she fully intends to stay hidden in the shadows with her nut-job family, so they have no chance to embarrass her around the man she's crushed on for two years.
