This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Pro football player Jake Miller's game plan for winning back supermodel Hannah Hahn is play action in the bedroom. Once he sees beyond the swimsuits and lingerie, feelings of love blindside him, changing the rules of the game. Hannah owns the runway, but that success came with a price and a secret that's kept her from trusting a man until Jake crashes through her defenses.

The paparazzi love the beauty and the beast couple but the tabloid rumors turn ugly and test the fragile trust between them. Then Hannah loses an ad campaign to fashion's new "it" girl. Her desperate reaction will cause Jake to challenge everything she's ever believed about herself.

Critic Reviews

"Readers will wholeheartedly enjoy the cat-and-mouse game the main couple plays. Expect a large dose of spice, surprises, and a story that's perfect for the front page of a tabloid. The sequel to Playing For Keeps is a touchdown!" ( Romantic Times Book Reviews)
"I loved Going for It because falling hard and fast for two witty, feisty and completely honest characters that do nothing if not capture your heart and take you on the wild ride that is their love story." ( Book Junkie

Sexy, lighthearted fun!

Really enjoy the author's football story lines. I hope the author continues putting her stories into audio form. The narration was enjoyable to listen to :-)

Another touchdown for Ms. Matis!

I wonder what would happen if the author quit her job as a 'mild mannered accountant by day' and became a full-time writer? Her stories have wonderful, sexy characters, great spot-on humor and hot sex too :-)

The throaty, sexy voice of Ms. Padovan is even better here than in 'Playing for Keeps' - very relaxed and sounds like she was having fun; the dialogue and narrator parts flow beautifully.

Keep 'em coming, Ms. Matis!

TERRIBLE NARRATOR!!!

The narrator ruined this story. Her voice for the female lead sounded like a young whiny child. The end to every sentence is elongated sounding like a long note in a song. It is so annoying. The male voices sound like old men and not sexy, young football players.

Great Story - VERY DISAPPOINTING NARRATION!

I've only written a few reviews, but with sincere apologies up front to the narrator for what I am about to say, I felt compelled to write this one... as a WARNING TO LISTENERS.

I have this short electronic novel and thoroughly enjoyed the storyline, characters and writing style (as well as its predecessor, Playing For Keeps). However, and this is a BIG however to Audible customers, the narration does not compliment Ms. Matis' efforts. Had I not already read the story, this performance would have given me a totally different perception of the book. And not in a good way. I can only imagine what the author thinks about it! The female lead, a sophisticated model in her early 30's, came off as a breathy, high-pitched, immature 16 yo while the male lead, an early 30's football hunk made me cringe with his old-man, weird, godfather-ish voice. And the inflection/reading was just not up to what I'm used to from an Audible book.

Sorry, Audible, but you were totally off the mark on this performance, and THAT'S disapointing to me, as well. My suggestion to readers - stick with your own imagination of the characters while READING this story and stay away from this audio book.

Don't waste your money or your credits

What would have made Going for It better?

A different narrator might have helped this book

Would you ever listen to anything by Liz Matis again?

Probably not

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Going for It?

I'm not so sure it needed editing as much as elaboration
