Publisher's Summary

Twenty-one-year-old Phoenix Silverstone, Nix to her friends, has recently discovered the luxury of independence. After being raised under the strict rules of an overbearing and close-minded mother, Nix has moved into a small Seattle apartment with her two best friends. Once the girls land a job working at a local bar together, everything seems perfect.

For the first time in her life, Nix is able to spread her wings and breathe.

She finds freedom, friendship, and a great job, and she is on the verge of landing a fantastic man. Her eyes, and heart, are set on Tristan, the suave, intelligent, and gorgeous law student. Until Levi Munroe crosses her path, that is. Nix knows she needs to avoid the charming, tattooed, and downright sexy bad boy, but when one of her friends suddenly moves out and Levi fills the vacancy, that won’t be easy to do.

Flirting. Desire. Undeniable temptations.

Nix can’t deny the chemistry surging between them, but she can’t forget her mother’s extreme hate toward bad boys either. Will Nix have the strength to listen to her heart? Or will her mother’s rules cost her everything?

I loved this story!

Jude Ouvrard tells a story as well as any indie author I have read. She is great at developing characters, describing them so we feel like we know them. Nix and Levi became our best friends as their lives connected, separated and reconnected. We felt their sadness and their joy and always wanted them to succeed, separately and together. I loved the descriptions of the Black Shaker Club and Ink Me studio. The three gal pals, Val, Bekka and Nix brought a playfulness to the story that made me giggle at times. From Seattle to Boston and back, I was taken on a ride that kept me engaged. I was waiting for the twist, for the revelation or the “aha” moment that I know Jude does so well. I was not disappointed. This was a terrific story. I highly recommend this book for either your reading or your listening pleasure. Congratulations, Jude. You have another winner.

I wanna know what happens next!

This is so well-written that I could easily imagine the events as they take place in the story. The characters have great chemistry and the dynamic of their relationships are realistic and relatable. This story does end with an HEA, but it also ends with a cliffhanger so maybe it's HFN as it approaches an HEA...?

The narrator Nathalie Johnson spoke in a soft, dreamy tone- she reminded me of the character Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter movies! I find it odd that she did accents but not voices. The narration also included "end of chapter __" at the end of each chapter which made the narrator sound like she is simply reading a book instead of actually telling a story.

I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

DNF. I couldn't.

I received the audiobook for free. This is a non bias review. I just couldn't finish it. The story seemed ok. Nothing special. I just couldn't get over the narrator. She sounds about the right age, which is a good thing. However, she is kind of monotone. She doesn't do any inflections. So, it sounds like she is just reading a book not acting it out. The story seemed to drag on and on with her narration. After 2 hours, I was done.

narrator sounds like a 15 year old

The narrator sounds like a little kid. Just couldn't listen to it. I might just buy the book.

Good Story

Nix is a girl living with her two best friends and living life as a good girl. Nix has been influenced my her mother and how she was hurt as a young mother. Because of her mother's feeling with men and tattoos she believe that Levi was a bad boy and Tristan was a good man. Not really knowing Tristan's true colors. Nix had to learn not to judge a person about how they look. A good listen and a enjoyable story.
