Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone, enemies-to-lovers office romance set within the Rydeville Elite world.  

Demi 

Dropping out of college senior year was never part of my plan. But Dad needs me, and I'd move mountains for the only parent I’ve ever known - even working for the company that fired him. 

My boss, Charlie, is determined to make my life a living hell, availing of every opportunity to undermine my confidence, humiliate, and threaten me. Sleeping with him the night of his wedding might have something to do with his attitude. 

Or, the fact I’m the spitting image of the woman he really wants. 

If our financial situation wasn’t so dire, I’d tell Charlie to stick his job up his delectable butt. But I’m trapped, and things are only getting worse. Because the more layers I uncover, the more I realize he is nothing l expected and everything I crave.
 

Charlie 

If there was a manual for all the ways a person could mess up his life, it’d have my name written on it. 

I can’t undo the things I’ve done, no matter how badly I want to, and every day is a constant reminder of my epic failure. Especially her. 

It’s as if Demi has been put on this earth to punish me. To inflict more torture and pain. Because every second I’m around her, she makes me feel things I don’t want to feel. So, I lash out. Doing my best to push her away. 

Until I realize she’s everything I never knew I needed, and the fight becomes a new battle - one to win her heart. 

Due to mature content and themes, this book is recommended to listeners ages 18 and over. This is a slightly extended version of the version that appeared in the Bully Me anthology, containing one extra chapter and two epilogues and ending with a HEA and no cliff-hanger.

One of my faves

as usual with Siobhan's books once you start reading you get completely sucked in! its so exciting to be back in the Rydeville elite world and even though i kinda sorta hated Charlie before because of what was happening with Abby before... i now love him!

yeah Siobhan can definitely make you change your mind about a character. this book gives you a whole new perspective on who Charlie is and damn is he one cold but deep down broken soul. Siobhan definitely made him redeemable in my eyes and lets just say wow because i didn't think that would ever happen.

Charlie and Demi's attraction causes sparks to fly and my girl doesn't take his crap because she fights back!
you guys definitely need to read this! it was soooo good! definitely one of my 5 star reads and i highly recommend this!

Great Addition to the Series!

This is the fourth book in the Rydeville Elite Series. I recommend to listen to this Series in order. Charlie and Demi’s enemies to lovers story is great. Charlie is a complex character, dominant, and secretive, and intriguing. Demi is sweet, strong, supportive, and caring. They are opposites attract, and they share a sizzling chemistry. The supporting characters are interesting. The world building is intriguing. I like the emotional and beautiful ending. Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher did a good job with the narration. #AudiobookObsession #PinkFlamingoProductions

So, I've listened to this series out of order but I still enjoy it. Charlie doesn't really get much into the world of the Elite but the tidbits it does throw in makes me to go back and listen/read from the beginning. The chemistry between Charlie and Demi is off the charts hot. The tension and build up after their initial encounter is funny and sexy. I like this world that Siobhan Davis has built, It's funny, suspenseful and full of good friends. I'm glad that I've discovered this intriguing series.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession and Pink Flamingo Productions. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Awesome Story & Narration🎧 Captivating & Heartfelt

I loved every minute of this awesome enemies to lovers romance. The story is well written and grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it for the entire book. This book is Demi and Charlie’s story, it is set in the “Rydeville Elite” world but it only gives a tiny glimpse of what is going on in that world, a world run by twisted power players. Charlie is the son of one of the top players, growing up he was molded to fill his fathers shoes so he not only knows how screwed up that world is he was groomed to be one of it’s future leaders. Charlie takes over running the family business after his father passes away. Demi’s father used to work at that company until he fell ill, Demi needing a job to help take care of her father takes a job at the same company and become Charles assistant, first the father and then the son. Their first encounter is smoking, a mistake though, Demi has not know the son was stepping in to his fathers job. Charles was not a fan of Demi working there, he treated her like crap but kept her there to make sure she did not talk about what happened the night they met. The chemistry between these two is explosive but so is the angst. Charles can not longer deny his feelings and he starts rethink his life but he thinks bringing her into his life will put her in danger. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, twists and turns, heartfelt and emotional moments and some hot romance. Also loved how much Charlie grew as a person. Siobhan Davis, thank you for another awesome story and emotional rollercoaster ride. It was great to see some of the other characters again, love the connection Demi had with Abby.

🎧📚🎧 And for the narration, Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher are fantastic narrators and voice artists. They bring these characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. They do an awesome job portraying the character, grasping each persona and playing the role with perfection, sounding just as I picture them to sound. You could hear the heart and passion they put into their work as they capture all the characters emotions and project them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen.

Thank you @PinkFlamingoProductions @AudiobookObsession TheFlock AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

The ending....

I really need/want to go back to the beginning to get the full story/storyline of the series. This is an excellent standalone. Not quite as dark as JACKSON, but still had the overtones. When an author makes one cry, you know it's good writing. That happened within the last hour. Before that, it was a book that I didn't want to pause. Demi is a favorite character. She was so sweet, loyal, and strong. Her relationship with her father was so special. He made my heart melt. Charlie wasn't my favorite at the beginning, but certainly redeemed himself. Loved the epilougues!

Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher are excellent narrators. Both are favorites of mine. They put such emotion into their performances. It rolls like a movie in my head. I didn't want the book to end.

I'm sorry... this is too tame compared to others

This is book 4. And, if you have listened to the first three books... so many horrific things happening... so much going on... well, book 4 has nothing. Yes, their chemistry is good... then what? HEA?? The end!

Not for me.

Charlie

Oh Charlie! I will admit I did not like Charlie in the first three books. However in his own story I learned to love him. You got a look at his past and what he went through in the first three books. Demi is the perfect girl for him. She would fight him back when he deserved it.

I loved Demi's story as well. She quit collage to take care of her ailing father. He was her only parent growing up and she wanted to do anything she could to be there for him.

So much happened in this book and I devoured it in two days! I can't wait to see more of Charlie and Demi in the next books in the series. Charlie had never been in love before and learned what that feeling was and how to handle it.

I'm so glad Charlie got his own book!

Good story

I loved the Rydeville Elite series but Charlie was not one of my favorite characters by the end of the series but I enjoyed getting to hear his story and hearing about others from the series while it is a standalone I think it would be enjoyed more if you start with book 1 of the series as the story does tie into each other and gives you a better idea about what's going on in the world they live in. The female narrator did an amazing job I did not care for the male narrator

One of my fave tropes

Enemies to lovers is one of my preferred tropes, and the author made the story seem more unique. The characters were fun to get to know. I just couldn’t stop listening until the end. The narrators did a fantastic job!!

Two thumbs up

Very interesting. I’ve read the first three rydeville books so I had background knowledge but the author did a great job of including enough info that it was not necessary. I love how everything and everyone tied together. Really enjoyed the epilogues but note #spoiler alert if you listen to epilogue 2.

Good guy or bad?

Rydeville Elite brings out the best and worst in it's people. This story features Charlie who recently took over his family's company after the death of his father. His new assistant is a woman he recently hooked up with at a wedding. Not happy with this situation, he will do just about anything to make her life miserable. Demi isn't thrilled with her position either, but she is desperately in need of a job to help with her father's medical bills, and will not bend to his will. But what these to find is that there is a fine line between love and hate. Siobhan Davis continues to thrill me with her books. Each one is full of wonderful characters. I have say though, there were definitely times in this story that I was fed up with Charlie. The sign of a good story, frustration, excitement, relevant problems and passion all bring out my emotions and make me listen straight through finding out all the secrets and experiencing all the feelings. This is an amazing addition to the series.

Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher are the narration team for this amazing story. Puckett comes through as Demi. She is a strong woman with a lot happening in her life, and Puckett harnesses all the emotions bringing them to the front and bringing them to us. Gallagher as Charlie is the mean boss, and he is spot on. We do get to see his evolution and Gallagher is fantastic as he changes over time. Give this a listen, you will love it!

Charlie and Demi!

Charlie was the character that you grew to despise when we met him in earlier books in the series but in this book we see another side of him and instead of rooting against him I found myself rooting for him. He is a man who is tortured by his past and the one takeaway he has is to never show weakness and never allow anyone close so how did he allow Demi to break all his rules?

Demi is his assistant and she is conflicted by her attraction to him and the loathing she feels not only for him but his father as well. When it comes to his bad behavior she will take whatever he wants to dish out for the sake of her family but she is not his punching bag and has a way of challenging him unlike anyone else.

This story has all the aspects we appreciate about this series including twists, drama, hot chemistry and captivating characters that draw you in. The performance of the narrators draw you in and have you invested in the story. 🎧AudioBook Obsession

Love Charlie & Demi!

I love Demi & Charlie!

Siobhan Davis killed it with this one!

I really loved Demi as a h. She’s strong considering everything she dealing with. Charlie certainly doesn’t help in the beginning. But when he finally stops being a jerk, he really steps up in the best way.

I think Demi & Charlie are my favorite couple from Siobhan!

Sarah Puckett & Michael Gallagher both did fantastic jobs narrating!

Intense!

Charlie and Demi's story was intense and addictive. The chemistry between these two was undeniable. The storyline had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning until the end. I haven't listened to the first three books in this series yet but after this one, I can't wait to listen to the entire series. Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher both did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. 🎧AudiobookObsessionVIPReviewer

Fantastic level of emotion

This book has a fantastic storyline and has a lot of action as well as complicated relationships. The emotion is brilliant and made me shed a tear. A heartfelt performance as always from Sarah and a new narrator to me Michael done a phenomenal job.

A surprisingly emotional read.

I received this audiobook via promo code at my request from Audiobook Obsession and this is my voluntary request.

Book 4 in the Rydeville Elite series, and the first I've read in this series.

Charlies father was murdered and the woman he loved, Abby is now off with Kaiden, so he was in a bad place the night he met Demi, the gorgeous doppleganger for the girl who broke his heart. Their hot hookup ends disasterously (no spoilers but yea.. he acts badly and Demi is right to harbour a grudge) and thus begins the complicated Love-Hate working relationship between them. Charlie regrets his past decisions and he's fairly self-isolated from his friends... meaning Demi is the most consistent human connection he's got. I'm definitely going to have to jump back to the start of this series and get caught up, but I think given that I kinda like asshat Charlie, how that will colour his misdeeds/my impression of the earlier installments should be interesting.

Solid effort, Siobhan did a good job of adding in the backstory but it wasnt until I listened to Jackson immediately following this book that I really began to understand the dynamic of The Elite.

Great Listen

I really enjoyed listening to this and I found the characters were really good and drew me in. The story made me want to keep listening and I got angry for Demi and the way Charlie treated her but was happy everything worked out in the end .

Enjoyed

I enjoyed this book. I don't think I've ever wanted to smack a hero so bad while still rooting for him. This book was good and I'm glad that Charlie did eventually redeem himself for me. I love Demi I felt like she was a strong character. All in all, it was a really good book! 🎧pinkflamingoproductions 🎧audiobookobsession

Enjoyed it

Charlie is an enemies to lovers, office romance that held my interest from start to finish. The story had it all, complex characters, drama, tension, twists and turns and it gave you all the feels. Charlie and Demi had undeniable chemistry and I enjoyed seeing how their relationship developed. This story was emotional and will cause you to shed a tear or two. I loved it and would recommend it to romance lovers.
The audiobook was narrated by Sarah Puckett and Michael Gallagher. These two were excellent choices for this narration. Their voices blended well together and they brought the story to life infusing the right emotions in their characters. It was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.
