I'm really enjoying this series! The only problem I had with this book was the way the narrator did Aprils voice... It drove me nuts.

Football star and Internet sensation Gavin "Anaconda" Adams is the biggest celebrity our little town has ever seen. But I had no idea who he was when I accidentally walked in on him naked. I was shocked, seeing all of him, a cocky grin on his face. I didn't know what to do. So I ran. No matter what I do, I can't get that image out of my head. To make matters worse, Gavin wants a date with me.

It was slightly entertaining at times, not much depth and at times eye roll worthy. I would never waste a credit or cash on it, thank goodness I have the romance package.

OMG!! Please tell me the next one comes out soon? I really liked this book. It has been a long time since a book wrapped me up in a warm blanket, and this one definitely did. I loved the characters, and their

Defiant Highland beauty Fiona Sinclair is shocked by her brothers’ treachery.

With no choice but to wed, Fiona makes her own private vow: Though she may sacrifice her freedom, she will never surrender her heart. Commanded into marriage by the king, Myles Campbell is no more willing than his reluctant bride. Still, she is a rare beauty, passionate enough to warm even the coldest marriage bed.

Miss Sarah Hamilton, a proper Philadelphian, finds London society altogether shocking. How can it be that she has awakened from her innocent slumber to find herself in bed next to a handsome - and exceedingly naked - man? The laughing onlookers standing in the doorway are no help whatsoever and surely this amorous lunatic cannot be a duke, as he claims.

Kayla Moore has always been comfortable with her feisty, maneating reputation. At least it was fine until she hit her 30s and saw her best friends, Stephanie and Nicola, settle down with Linden and Bram McGregor, leaving Kayla as the odd one out. Tired of being the third wheel with nothing but one-night stands and dead-end dates in San Francisco, Kayla decides to take a vow of celibacy and put men on the back burner.

Would you try another book from Jennifer Ashley and/or Eric Dove?

Not sure... the narrator was horrible. It sounded like I was listening to a National Geographic documentary. He had no emotion or inflection to his voice at all.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer Ashley again?

Not sure.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eric Dove?

Anyone else... someone who could narrate with emotion or that wasn't monotone.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I don't think so.
