Literary agent Emily May is in danger of losing everything she's worked for - her job, her home, her friends, and the security she provides her older sister back in Singapore - all because she doesn't have a green card.
Racecar enthusiast, high-flying, fast-living Derian Winfield is called home when the only family member she still cares about falls ill. Forced into assuming a role in her father's dynasty she's spent years avoiding, Derian needs to rehabilitate her black sheep reputation in a hurry, or the agency will likely end up being lost in a takeover.
Together she and Emily take on Derian's father and his hatchet woman, and in the process Derian comes up with a plan to solve both their problems. Now she only needs to convince Emily to marry her - a perfectly reasonable solution to all their troubles, or so she thinks. She just hadn't counted on falling in love.
I knew I would love the story because it's Radclyffe. But, I was anticipating the argument or fight between the 2 characters. And when it happened I laughed. And after they made up, I was smiling the entire time not wanting to end. But, knew it would. Radclyffe is so predictable that you literally know which direction the story is heading and how it will end. And that is why I always give 4 stars instead of 5 for Radclyffe books. The story and performance is definitely a 5. Radclyffe needs to surprise us readers one day. And even put an epilogue. Not that this review will matter. As for the Narration, Abby Craden is one of my favorites. Love her voice and the tone she uses so you can make the distinction of each characters. I always look for Abby Craden Narrations. She is amazing!

The u-haul is offset by years of interactions, even if guarded. Cross-culture ethnically, the lovers have similar tragedies that has shaped them as well as loyalty where it counts. Great character development. I really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes publishing insights. Not at all sure how the woman in the cover art relates, but the story was great.

Excellent. I fell in love with the characters and the story. I have always enjoyed Radcliff's books, but I got lost in this one. Beautifully believable, tinder and rough at the same time. love it.
I loved this story. I found the narrator yo be exceptionally good. I would of loved to have heard more of the story towards the end. to me it definitely left me hanging.. but most great story do... Everyone should read this book.
Had to come back and say I just listened to this book a second time and loved every moment of it...
First, this story was awesome! I enjoyed the characters. Their personalities, mixed well together, which made the chemistry leap into the listener.
Abby Craden...what more should I have to say? Craden is spectacular and gives life to each character, her voice is a type of seduction that makes its way into your soul and fills you from the inside.
Keep up the good work ladies.
This book is well written with characters and emotions that left me wanting more. A longing for the world to wash away so I could continue living in a world this author and narrator created. Together they laid out a story that I never wanted to end. Beautiful, captivating, and powerful with emotion that is both overwhelming and breathtaking. A wonderful dance of Love, desire, and passion you can feel, with a longing for more.
I lived the story. I mean, it wasn't the most exciting or the most captivating but it was a nice little love story and its as good as expected from Radclyffe.
As usual, the romance was way too quick but I've gotten used to that when it comes to lesbian books.
The narrator was awesome. Abby is always a good narrator, only second to Maxine who reads the Midnight Hunt books, in my opinion at least. but anyway, I loved it overall. it was good
Could not stop listening. this is one book I will listen to again and again.
It all starts when the head of small family owned publishing house falls ill, the young girls who rush to be at her side out of love are her niece, a rich car drive in the European circuit, and her young prodigy a young girl who hand lost both parents, and was keeping her brain injured sister care paid for back in Singapore, where she just found out she had some green card problems. The two wait in the hospital generally caring about the fate of the woman and in the long hours they begin to bond. The bond just grows deeper as they fight to keep the company out of her evil uncle Martin's hands while the one woman's Aunt recovers . If they could say the word love to the other things might not get so confessed. Read the book or listen to it.
This was a good book but would have liked a better ending would still recommend reading.
a lovely story. moves fast enough and the narration was great. characters are relatable. its a good listen.
