A lot can happen on the back nine of a golf course, especially if your focus is not on the ball. Alec Marino has been building his clientele list in Cozumel's most exclusive golf resorts while keeping his private life confidential. Brooke Carmichael's life revolves around one thing: her career. Her bed is like a permanent sand trap - depressing and empty.
When a business trip leads Brooke to the sunny island where she is ready and willing to learn something new, she decides to take a swing at golf. Some temptations are too delicious to resist, and one stroke from Alec sends Brooke's entire world into a backspin. Blinded by desire, Alec goes against his own rules and makes Brooke an offer she can't refuse. As secrets begin to surface, Alec and Brooke must decide if they will let it drive them apart, or if mixing work and pleasure will score a hole in one.
Erotic golf..... Hmm, I'll look at a golf course the same again!
This short (but not sweet) little novella was a fun read. Light on plot but heavy on smut, listening to the audiobook definitely made hanging out the washing a more interesting chore!
The narrator spoke clearly and at a good pace. She was well suited to the book and able to provide different character voices that didn't sound like caricatures.
I received this audiobook free because I smiled sweetly and batted my eyelashes at the author. I'm posting an honest review, because that's just what I do.
What a great story! This is almost like a Cinderella story, only sexier. This is a sweet and sexy hot romance (not too sexy though). Gia Stone still leaves plenty for the imagination. Lots of drama and an anything that can go wrong does kind of trip for Brooke. I really enjoyed listening to this audio book! Definitely worth a 2nd and even a 3rd listen.
The author, Gia Stone does a great job getting her story out to us. With romance blossoming in the strangest places, Gia keeps us entertained. The emotions in the story are great too. At one point, I started to tear up with Brooke. The narrator, Hollie Jackson does a superb delivery to us with lots of emotions entwined in her delivery. Very good job and very believable too!
*** I was gifted an audio book copy of this story "The Back Nine" by Gia Stone in exchange for a honest and unbiased review of my thoughts on it. These are my own words and opinion. ***
