Publisher's Summary

Degrees are earned

Could life get any harder for Helena Foster? Her mother disappeared four years ago, and her father's new girlfriend kicked her out. She needs to finish college, get her degree, and find a job. 

The fear of marriage for a lucrative business merger has Alejandro Carrera desperate to prove he can run the new Bayside Floating Casino project for his father. He will finish his master's degree while overseeing the construction and stay on to manage the multi-billion dollar corporation. 

Passion is experienced  

One tap on Helena's shoulder and the lure of the mysterious stranger's dark mocha eyes and sultry accent had her rearranging priorities. She didn't want to think about all of the new emotions she experienced every time he glanced in her direction during class. Should she give in to the passion his eyes promised? Alejandro had not planned on a blonde-haired distraction to cross his path. The moment she pushed up her glasses with one finger on her perfectly sculpted nose, he was hooked. But she is a complication he does not need. He can't risk the temptation of what those innocent eyes promised. 

Would giving in be too much of a gamble?

Sweet new adult romance!

Sometimes I find it difficult to relate to new adult books, but Lori Ann Gerlisky has written a sweet, passion filled story is easy to enjoy! Helena is a student, worried about her grades to keep her scholarship and has no interest in a relationship. Alejandro is finishing his schooling while overseeing the construction and management of a new casino. The two have instalust, but is that enough to build a relationship on? With arranged marriages, reputations and schooling, there is a lot going on with this couple. I enjoyed Helena's character, she is naive to an extent but also is a person confident in knowing what she wants. There is nothing not to like about the Alejandro. He is hardworking, good looking and passionate about what he wants. But do you always get what you want? This is a short listen, but is packed with lust, love, trust and family, all culminating into a great listen.

This narration by Lacy Laurel is wonderful. Her voicing of Helena brings that hesitancy and yearning that you can remember being that age. I especially loved her slight Spanish accent she uses for Alejandro, bringing that Latin passion into his voice. Another excellent performance you are sure to enjoy.

A good, short, listen!

This was a great story. The characters were sweet, believable, and it didn’t take me long at all to fall in love with them. Helena’s insecurities reminded me very much about how I felt at that age, and Alejandro is the type of guy most girls dream of! Add in his own dilemma, and their subsequent dance around responsibilities, struggles, and their insane attraction, and you’ve got a sweet college romance in the making.

Sweet Short New Adult Story

This was my first Lori Ann Gerlisky's book. This is a new adult story and love at first sight. The two main characters, Alejandro and Helena, are great together. Alejandro is mature and handsome and Helena is kind and naive. This is a short and cute love story. The narration was amazing and easy to listen, as always with Lacy Laurel. I love her voice. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
