Publisher's Summary

On the surface, Corinne Thomas has the world at her fingertips. Adventurous by nature, her daring persona allows her the freedom to take risks and live her life, at times, in complete anonymity. But there is something that lingers deep down that, if brought to light, could stir the masquerade Corinne's built for herself. For the past few weeks, exchanges with a certain someone wreaks havoc on her ability to maintain a solid pretense. Happily ever afters aren't for Corinne, but when her soul is roused by the magnificence of his authority, Corinne considers opening herself to a new set of dangers. Love.  

As one of the world's most powerful sports agents, Xavier Valentine lives his life in the high skies as he flies from one destination to another. Negotiating million-dollar contracts, product endorsements, and meeting league representatives keeps his schedule air-tight. Not only is every hour in his day accounted for, but it's impossible to get in a room with him without an appointment. That's why when Xavier finds himself locked in close quarters with Corinne Thomas, he questions the very thing that he's prided himself on conquering: his mind. And the moment he decides to let Corinne in, with her comes a powerful elixir of love.  

Contains mature themes.

Entertaining

So this is my second book in this series. The performances were great and even though I enjoyed the read, I’m afraid to admit I didn’t feel the chemistry between the hero and heroine.

It’s somewhat second chance; the hero and heroine went on a blind double date in the past and reconnected in their book. Since the hero is a sextuplet, I assume it was with his brother and his wife from the last book(I can’t remember I read the book a long time ago).

Something about this particular brother was off to me. He said he loved and respected women but both his actions and words didn’t reflect this. He actually seemed like he hated women. He didn’t have positive things to say about them unless it was the heroine and even she he romanticized to be this perfect being who he wasn’t even sure he’d have feelings for if they had freaking in between the sheets too soon.

I did however like his family dynamic. I like to see black power families especially ones with enormous generational wealth. I was a little confused to them being sextuplets (one of their brothers died so they’re actually a pack of six) because they don’t remind me of brothers who are the same age(I’m a multiple birth person so it’s always funny to read people write twins or triplets or any other multiple birth combination and how people THINK we are lol).

The plot took a weird turn toward the last hour where it felt random and super rushed but what I will say is I LOVED THE LOVE SCENES!

Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with love scenes so amazing. I wanted to give it a five based on the love scenes alone. I mean I’ve read some great between the sheets scenes in interracial romance, black romance, white romance, Asian romance, latinx romance, queer romance, I’m an equal opportunist. But some of these authors gonna have to step their game up because even though I didn’t feel as though this was a five star read I’m tempted to go on to the next just to see if the love scenes match or even top this one!

Characters need more depth

Performance is okay but characters need more depth, it was a similar assessment for book 1 in this series. The stories are okay but need more development.

Liked it, but did NOT Love it.

I LOVED book one and while all of the main characters from book one were included in book two, this storyline fell flat for me. The multiple irrelevant subplots were a waste of minutes and the chemistry between these characters just didn't excite me like the chemistry between Hunter and Camilla. Also, the ending was just too over the top ridiculous... I mean I understand the attempt at getting us listeners on an high emotional high, but it missed the mark as loyal fans of book one like myself, have to feel completely slighted that Camila and Hunter's BIG day was completely overshadowed by a subplot. Jakobi did their thing as per usual. On to book 3... hoping it is better.

I wanted to like this story but...

The author writes well, however I felt this book and her other books in the series did better as a reading book not as audible. I picked it because it was my favorite narrators reading but I could not get into it.
One it was too fairy tale for me the expected drama was predictable with Karine and Carlos like she should have been able to pick up on the signs.
Two there was too many scenes that did not connect for me how Camilla randomly invited a stranger to her baby shower or how Karine just up and went to another country with Xavier. I felt the story was rushed and not able to fall in love with the characters.

I wanted to like the book but I don't see myself reading anymore in the series. I hate leaving bad reviews because I am sure the author worked her behind off to write these books. Also the one word that irked me in the book was guffaw.

It was a nice listen

It seems to be a sweet simple romance. The first one was better, but I know it's building up a complete storyline of books. It was a decent listen.
