Publisher's Summary

Telling James West he can't do something is like telling lightning it can't strike. The only thing that crosses his mind is, "challenge accepted." Finally sitting at the helm of his family's oil company, James is ready to conquer the industry. The gorgeous, mysterious woman who keeps crossing his path looks like the perfect distraction from the stress of his new role. He'll have to choose between having her in his corner at West Oil or taking her to his bed.

Libby Saint-Jane has been living a lie. One she intends to protect at any cost. When she finds herself in over her head and on the verge of failure, will her boss, James West, bail her out or kick her to the curb? He may not be the solution for all her troubles, but he might be the adventure she's been waiting for.

Decent Story with heavy angst!

Overall opinion: 3.5 Stars

I understand how abuse can make people timid but at times, the h was way to wishy-washy. Overall this is a decent story with a power ending that has some TSTL moments. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Meh at best.

First of all, the breathy voice only worked for Marilyn Monroe. It did not sound good on the heroin. Also, the heroine was whiny and a huge mouse. I didn’t look to see when this book was written, but there were so many potential sexual harassment suit’s that HR would’ve had a cow. Naked bodies and sex on the beach is tricky enough without the hero pouring sand on top of the heroin. And you’re not going near those girly parts until you get all that sand thoroughly washed off. Not much depth or strength in the characters. And the men should not be saddled with voices that sound nasally and prepubescent.

Great Book!

This is a great book; this is the first book in the Barrington Billionaires Series written by Danielle Stewart and narrated by Robin Rowan. This book can be listened to as a standalone but you will want to listen to them all. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

Great start to this series

What did you like best about this story?

James West is a hard man in this book, but the love of a good woman can bring him around. Libby is way too sweet for James, but she has a way of getting to him and softening him, making him a better person. Great story and a joy to read. This series goes along with two other author's series so if you are reading them it brings new meaning when it talks about people, but it is great as a stand alone also.

Have you listened to any of Robin Rowan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have many books narrated by Robin Rowan and enjoy them all.

Libby's voice was pretty annoying

The story was fine and so was narrator until she reads Libby's character it was so annoying and way too high pitched, totally unnecessary and clearly not the narrators own pitch. Why??? I almost stopped listening several times but the story and the narrators decent job on most of the other characters helped push me to the finish line.

Liked the book, hated the narration

Would you be willing to try another one of Robin Rowan’s performances?

No. I bought the Audible by accident when buying the book, and turned it on three-quarters of the way through the book. The breathy, high-pitched voice used for Libby was so ridiculous that I turned it off immediately.
