Publisher's Summary

Add one hidden past. A dash of a pretend role. A shot of steamy chemistry. Put it in a shaker, then pour for one exotic cocktail on the rocks! 

Wesley Templeton was determined to not follow in his namesake’s path as a cardiac surgeon. Was he smart enough for it? Of course, he was a genius after all. Did he have the time and patience to master the craft? Absolutely. Was he going to let his controlling grandfather hold his trust fund over his head until he achieved what was expected of him? Hell no! 

Harper Fairchild was the redheaded stepchild. Literally. Smart, nerdy, picked on, and often thought of as an outcast. Her social life was a dismal as her family relationships, so she left when she could and made a new life somewhere else. Unfortunately she found it was hard to break the mold of what cast her as undesirable. Until she loses a bet with a coworker and has to be made over for a blind date. When that turns into another disaster she escapes to a bar to nurse her emotional wounds, striking up a conversation with the sexy bartender and wondering if she could keep up the ruse of the confident, sexy chick she was pretending to be.

Loved it

The first book that started the “Hero Club Series” Soraya and Graham’s story Is “Stuck-Up Suit” by ViKeeland and Penelope Ward it took me forever to figure it out.
You don’t need to read the first book but if you want to....

Secrets, Secrets and more Secrets

Lots of secrets, most were unnecessary, but I loved the story and characters. Wes and Harper are perfect together and deserve their HEA. No cocky-alpha needed just good romance.

Good Story

3.5 Stars

This was a very entertaining story although the secretive friction about his wealth seemed both trivial and contrived. I appreciated the communication and banter between the MCs and the relationship with the H's friends.

Good Story

I enjoyed the story and the narration. Altho I enjoyed the story, I found the 3rd person style to be incredibly annoying... it took away from the ability to get lost in the story.

Harper and Wes.. Cute..

⭐️
I liked the book but I’m not really a fan of 3rd person, it confuses me because of how you refer to yourself by name. However the story was good but I couldn’t really get into it unfortunately. Harper is the nerd who keeps to herself and doesn’t want any attention do to how she’s always been brushed to the side by her mother and step sisters. Wesley is the owner of Cardiac Attack a bar but he was supposed to be a brilliant doctor but he decided that wasn’t his calling and struck out and did his own thing once he got a piece of his trust fund. Both of them are doing their own thing to be who they want to be not who others tell them they are.
⭐️
Overall, it was good but not great but that’s just my opinion not all will feel the same. The third person just made it more confusing for me but the characters were good and the story was decent and done well just could have used a little tweaking in spots.
⭐️
It gets three stars from me

love love love

I have been listening to audiobooks for years and this might be my favorite one of all. maybe it's because it hits pretty close to home... my husband has a job a lot like wes's one that requires no brain power however he was smart like Wes and invested properly... but still refuses to live like we've invested properly

Outgrowing their secrets

Harper Fairchild is a food scientist, she loses a bet and has to have a.makeover and a blind date. It turns out badly and she ends up in a bar called Cardiac Arrest. There she meets Wes Templeton, the bar manager.
As they get to know each other, they begin to fall in love. There is a little bit of relationship angst due to the fact that both Wes and Harper we’re keeping secrets.
I really liked this book, the story was awesome as was the narration.
I would definitely recommend.

I really enjoyed this audiobook

The narrators did a good job. I liked the H/h and the low angst storyline. This was my first book by this author and I plan check out her backlist.
