Cute and funny...

I didn't think I was going to like this book at first but was pleasantly surprised. The main characters were funny and realistic, and the supporting characters were well-developed. I even liked the narrator's portrayal of the lead male's British accent. Nice job.

funny and sexy

I thought it was very funny (I got caught laughing out loud at my desk) and sexy. A bit implausible, but all romance novels are, that's why we read them, right? I thought it was a nice light hearted novel that inspires me to go home and bite my husband. In an affectionate way.

A Fun Book

This is another light, fun book from Gena Showalter. It's very different than the Lords of the Underworld series. The characters are interesting and I really enjoyed the humor in the book.

Do not waste your time

I have been a member of audible for many years and this is my first review. Yes, this book is that bad. The story doesn't make sense in parts and the characters are aweful. They are aweful as people and not fully realized characters. They so often did things out of character that it became the norm.
Please don't waste your time listening to this book, unless you like stories about aweful, self-obessessed, juveniles.

Caught in the Act.

There are some pluses and minuses to this story. I loved the fighting back and forth between the main characters it was pretty funny. I liked all the pickup lines at the beginning of each chapter, they were also amusing. What I didn't overly like was how bitter and closed off the heroine had become after a child hood tragedy. It was just sad to see her so damaged that it affected her whole life which made her less likable. And although I liked this book it is kinda a man hating book, but the author points that out and tries to show that heart ache can go both ways. Overall it is a fluffy filler book, no real depth but funny and a quick read. The first half of the book is better than the last and I wasn't fond of the side story. Narrator was ok, nothing really stuck out as good or bad.

Cute, fluffly, and covered in cheese!

Any additional comments?

I love Gena Showlater. I was so looking forward to this little book that sounded amusing. It was good. It was just a bit cheesy. Nothing wrong with cheesy. Just from the depth and heart she puts in some of her other books I expected a bit more. I was still highly amused and enjoyed the book. I just had to adjust my expectations a bit. Overall it was a fun, light, listen for the days you are feeling a bit glum. If you want anything meaningful this isn't the book. It is cheesy fluff. Sometimes that is fun too.

Lost the steam midway...

This started as a very funny and sexy story but then halfway through it just went down. I've read and listened to many Harlequin Desire/Blaze books so I enjoy love at first site, intense relationship stories but this one was borderline ridiculous. The total time span of this story is about four days. In four days Jillian and Marcus fall madly in love, breakup, get back together after a suicide/stupidity incident and he proposes marriage and signs over half of his business to her. Also, Jilian's friend Georgia all of a sudden goes completely should-be-institutionalized crazy but that only makes her realize that Jilian's brother is her true love. Come on! The narrator did an ok job with what she had to work with though.

Wanted to love it but found it lacking

First, let me say that I am a huge Gena Showalter fan so it pains me to give a less than stellar review.

I was interested in the concept of the story and was satisfied with its progression in the first half. However, as the story sped toward its conclusion, I started to question how it was going to wrap up in a way that would be both satisfying and (at least somewhat) realistic.

Alas, the story wrap up felt abrupt and rushed. The main female character (at the end) responded so drastically opposite to her initial persona that it made her dealings with her love interest hard to believe. Perhaps if a good side story is crafted with Jake as the main character I will give this story line another try. But honestly it will have to have much more substance to be worth my time.

Gena Showalter has had strong female characters...

couldnt finish the book. The male protagonist made me want to punch him in the face. This book makes women seem weak and useless putting up with this jerks attitude. This is how guys think treating like women in the work force is okay and women think its okay to be treated like this just because men are attractive.


The reader made women seem like a bunch of airhead bimbos.
