Publisher's Summary

Wickedly sexy James Bowen is a bad boy of the highest order - tattoos and attitude included - which unfortunately ranks way up on Tate's not-a-chance-in-hell list, right there along with skydiving naked over Tehran and juggling Ebola vials just for kicks. But what the heck, she's on holiday, the guy is absolutely irresistible, and she needs to unplug from her life. With her dad and brother gone, Tate is left to deal with the family restaurant, which is fast going down the drain. Her employees are acting up, her boyfriend has bailed out, and her very own private stalker is emailing her to death with lovely threats of doom, fire, and dismemberment. So yeah, maybe a little holiday fling is in order. Strictly sex though, and no follow-up whatsoever. Once. Just once.

She hadn't counted on her take-charge holiday fling having an opinion of his own and stubbornly sticking around, before and after the sex, making himself at home in her life. There is definitely more to James than meets her prejudiced eye, and even if she's not ready to look deeper, James isn't prepared to permit her not to.

Amateur narrator with zero production editing!!

This was an excellent story that could've been one of my coveted five star reads if the narrator hadn't been so abominable. There were several instances when the narrator clears his throat or coughs at inappropriate times, which lets be honest, I get that this happens from time to time but this should've been edited out of the story. It was distracting and it disrupted the flow. Another thing that irritated me about this narrator was that his attempt to insert emotion in his tone of voice was over the top dramatic and this also disrupted the flow a bit for me. It's a shame, but bad narration can make or break a book for me. Audible, please get us a new narrator for this book!! I am a huge Elle Aycart fan!!

Great story. Awful Narration.

This recording skips and has a lot of background clicks and shuffling. At one point the narrator stops and clears his throat mid sentence (about 4 times in chapter 12).

Whats with all the throat clearing?????

Any additional comments?

Would have been a good listen but all the throat clearing was very distracting. Should have given the poor guy a glass of water or better still, better editing!!!

It could have been good

Would you try another book from Elle Aycart and/or Carl Michaels?

I would try another book by Elle Aycart. I wouldn't listen to another book by Carl Michaels unless he was using one voice through the whole book. Maybe.

What was most disappointing about Elle Aycart’s story?

Maybe the story would have been better if there was another narrator but I am not sure. I hated Tate so much and thought she was so rude, even though she was going through so much. She was not likeable in the least. I love romantic mysteries, but the reasoning behind this one still has me baffled.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The choices the narrator made for the voices of the characters made me laugh, I'm sorry to say. I'm sure he's a nice guy but I just couldn't understand why he was chosen for this book at all. The only character he did well was James and maybe James' father.<br/>Also, there was a clicking during the recording like he was "turning" the page on his tablet while reading and too long of pauses in the middle of sentences. Very bizarre. I honestly can't believe I finished listening to the book and am now laughing at myself.

Any additional comments?

I can't believe I am even thinking this, and maybe it's already done, but I would read a book about Tate's sister, Elle.
