Publisher's Summary

There are exactly 2,716 miles between my home in Boston and my best friend in Las Vegas. When she calls me to let me know that she’s about to get married and needs me at her ceremony in five days, how could I refuse? 

Just one problem. These winter storms have all the flights cancelled. 

Luckily for me, I’m not the only person desperate to get to that wedding. Kristen’s dad, whom I’ve never met, is waiting outside my apartment, willing to drive me across the country so neither of us miss the wedding.

By New York, I learn that Henry James is the smuggest British man I have ever met.

In Chicago, he makes me question every single life choice I’ve made.

It’s in Denver that we finally break the forbidden rules between us. 

By the time we reach Vegas, my best friend may never want to speak to me again - because I’ve fallen head over heels for her dad.

Sexy British Dad... yes, please!

An age gap romance with a sexy British dad… yes, please! Sara Cate definitely knocked it out of the park with "Handsome Devil"… I loved everything about this story, and by the end I couldn’t help but crave more of Laila and Henry. The storyline was ingeniously clever as a best friend and the father-of-the-bride road trip to Vegas in hopes of both supporting and stopping a wedding. Laila’s preconceived opinions of an arrogant Henry lead to some entertaining and humorous banter. As they navigated the road and a few awkward obstacles along the way, an undeniable attraction sparked and the chemistry was so magnetic, the forbidden lust only fueled their desires. The narration was perfection! New-to-me narrators, CJ Bloom and Will Watt did an amazing performance capturing the personalities of the characters, while keeping the consistency of Henry’s British accent as the POV changed. My oh my...Will definitely had me swooning with that voice!

Laila and Henry

This was a really good age-gap story. Laila and Henry took the long way from the East Coast to Las Vegas for her best friend and his daughter's wedding. Neither were able to get a flight out so they drove together. Along the way things changed for both of them. Sara Cate writes great age-gap romance books. Would love it if the book were longer to find out how things turn out for them down the road. CJ Bloom and Will Watt did a great job with the narration.

Steamy Sexiness

Sara Cate is an excellent storyteller of super sweet and romantic stories. Handsome Devil is no exception and is simply delicious. An age gap romance and so much more, the plot and dialogue is superb. The character development and chemistry between Henry and Laila is HILARIOUS!! The narration for this book is stellar. Narrators Will Wyatt and CJ Bloom put a lot of heart and steamy sexiness into their performance. I loved this story!! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

Nothing complicated

Synopsis: Just the right length for some steamy sex scenes and an unrealistic HEA.

Younger woman falls best friend's dad during road trip. The story isn't super complicated, and the character development is ok. There's nothing ground breaking or unpredictable about this book. The story focuses more on the sparks and attraction but doesn't address any of the complications that come with falling for someone in a short period of time.

The biggest issue with this book is that the story is basically about falling in lust with someone, but is treated like the characters are falling in love. The author gives it a little HEA at the end. Given the length of the story, I wouldn't expect the author to get too in depth about complexities.

I found listening to this book on 1.2 speed was more enjoyable since the narration seemed a little slow in terms of cadence. That's totally a personal preference.

I spent $1.99 on the book since I was able to get the kindle version through KU. I feel like spending a credit on this book wouldn't have been worth it. Not sure if I'll listen to other books by Sara Cate since this story seemed a little simplistic and the sex scenes were a little "meh".

Themes: age gap, romance, forbidden romance, road trip.

Yes Please!

I'm a little bit of a sucker for an age gaps and British voices (seriously? Can't argue with me on that one). And by little bit I mean a LOT. Add them both together and you know it's going to be a good time. Handsome Devil definitely delivered. The narration for this book is fantastic and I know I'll go back to this story again. Actors were believable and relatable. The story was also good-laughs and adventure. I also appreciate that it was short and sweet. It's my first book by Sara Cate but it won't be my last by any means!

Awesome Story & Narration🎧 Deviliciously🔥Hot!

Sara Cate’s diabolical side comes out in this rule breaking, forbidden romance and I loved every minute and every word of it! The story is well written with original storylines that are captivating from start to end. The characters are well developed, they are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. Laila’s best friend, Kirsten, is getting married in Vegas, she wants her there to be the maid of honor. Problem is a snow storm has airplanes grounded and she has no way of getting there on time. Kirsten’s Dad, Henry, will be driving there and Kirsten told him to pick her up. Laila never met Henry, he was kind of an absentee Dad for her bestie and her opinion of him was not very high before she even stepped foot in the car. She was not expecting such a pompous Brit, it was going to be a long road trip. The dialogue and banter between them was awesome, I loved how it evolved as time went on leading to their own self discovery as they question their own ways. The chemistry between them is smoking and as it continues to burn hotter their own individual thoughts take them out of their comfort zone. This is an awesome age gap, best friend’s dad romance of two consenting adults. I think the real devil in this story was Kirsten who kind of had ulterior motives putting them in the car together. She knew Laila would be good for her Dad, who was too uptight and set in his ways, if any one could help him it would be her. Though what happened between them went beyond her intentions. I really loved how everything played out in this book, if you are looking for an enjoyable and entertaining romance story then this is the book for you. Sara Cate, thank you for the wonderful story and road trip!

🎧📚🎧And for the fabulous narration, CJ Bloom and Will Watt are the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. Their portrayal of the characters was spot on, I love how they take each role and make it their own sounding believable and just as I picture them to sound. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

A road trip indeed!!

This is my first book by Sara Cate but it won’t be my last!! Laila and Henry’s relationship started as two strangers thrust into an unwanted road trip that bound them together because of their mutual love for Henry’s daughter!! Their story appropriately demonstrates how difficult getting to know someone really is. Both have fears of disappointing one another, especially when preconceived notions are overcome by being adventurous and honest. Laila and Henry have sizzling chemistry. Their story highlights how getting what you want out of life requires you to take a chance!! Although their relationship is kinda taboo, I love their dynamic of a much older man with a younger woman both learning new things about themselves and each other!! Will Watt and CJ Bloom were fantastic narrators!! Their performances were perfect for the hero and heroine’s characters!! I look forward to more from Sara Cate!!

WOW. SO GOOD

I absolutely positively LOVED this book so much, I feel like I am going to be thinking about it for DAYS. Henry and Layla were so perfect!!!! The chemistry was crazy, and not only that but it was FUNNY! Sara Cate has some hilarious dad jokes up her sleeve let me tell you. I was at the grocery store in the bacon aisle when Layla was stuck with her hand down her pants and I started laughing and there was an old lady next to me that gave me a dirty look. Like she thought I was laughing at the animals that were sacrificed to be put on display for us to eat or something. I just want to rewind time to listen to this story all over again. The narration was AMAZING also. Everything was SPOT ON 5 STARS.
