Publisher's Summary

A sexy college student falls for an irresistibly hot and mysterious alpha billionaire with ties to organized crime who sweeps her off her feet and teaches her things she never could have learned in any classroom.

Emma was only looking for a little fun during her summer away in posh Newport, Rhode Island. One night, she walked up to Marco Accardi, never imagining the fiery passion that would ensue. He wanted to possess every inch of Emma's body and soul, but she was blissfully unaware of the sordid life he kept hidden from her.

Their scorching love affair becomes threatened when Emma discovers the truth about Marco's involvement with the mafia. Is Emma's pull on Marco strong enough to compel him to leave "The Family," or will their whirlwind romance be nothing more than a hot summer fling?

Not a favourite story

I received this audio book for free for an honest review.
I loved the narration of Veronica Holly.
I like Jade Allen's stories, this one is not one I would, the story seems to be missing something.

Good quick listen

The perfect book for a walk, this book brought a little of everything. Well developed characters bring us the story of Emma and Marco, meeting at a bar. Emma had no idea who this Italian man was, and when she found out he was wealthy, she was put off rather than becoming a gold digger. Their relationship developed over the summer until Emma overheard Marco and his brother, Dominick talking about their real line of business. Emma could not live with a man in the mafia. Would Marco be able to win her over? Listen to this book and you will be surprised!

Veronica Holly did a fantastic job with Emma and Marco. Loved the Italian accent, bringing real sensuality to Marco's voice.

Short and Hot

I waa given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. I really enjoyed this book. The narration overall was good but the male voice was a little slow to me. Overall this was an enjoyable listen.

No Build Up to the Story

Would you try another book from Jade Allen and/or Veronica Holly?

This book wasn't for me. I need a beginning, middle and end. It seemed like this story had the couple meet and in bed in the first few minutes. I can live with that if it is followed up with a story. This book did not do that. It felt rushed and forced. With that said, I would try another book by this author, because what story I could find was actually okay - just not enough of it. I did like the narrator.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I love all Romance books - Historical, Billionaire, MC, Paranormal ... anything that lets me know the characters and fall in love with their story.

What three words best describe Veronica Holly’s performance?

Pleasant, Easy, Entertaining

What character would you cut from Hot Summer with the Alpha Billionaire?

None

Any additional comments?

The story was a short easy listen. It wasn't bad just not for me. I want build up. I want angst. I want to know the characters. This book was just too rushed for my taste. <br/><br/>"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, &/or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Boom."<br/>

narration 3.5 🌠... story 3🌠

"I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review."

Veronica Holly did good job narrating. The only "issue" I had was when she read for Macro, the accent was just...well wierd for me. It wasn't sexy as I'm sure it was supposed to be. But she did a great job with the female character.

As for the story itself, I have mixed feelings about this...
It had the potential to be a great story, but I felt shortchanged. It really was mostly about intimate situations(I use that term loosely), and less story. I have no problem with reading any type of romance, but I've got to have a story and a connection with the characters. I was curious enough to see how it ended, but it felt rushed! I enjoy other books by Jade Allen, and I plan to continue to read her stuff!!
