Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello returns with an irresistible series about sexy billionaires and the strong-willed women who tame them.

Brett Westerly is his father's golden child, but it's come at a cost. As head of the family corporation, he throws himself into his work - hiding in his office is easier than confronting the reality of his broken family.

After a bitter divorce that split the family and divided loyalties, the wealthy Westerly matriarch offers an early inheritance to any grandchild who marries and invites the entire family to the wedding. Brett's brother Spencer rashly gets engaged, and Brett knows it's his duty to intervene. But he never imagined the unwelcome desire Spencer's fiery fiancée would spark in him. Now the man who's used to getting everything he could want has met the one woman he can't have.

Ever since she was a girl, Alisha Coventry considered Spencer and his sister Rachelle the family she didn't have. When Spencer asks for her help, Alisha has no problem becoming his fake fiancée - until she meets Spencer's sexy older brother Brett. The chemistry between them is undeniable - forbidden - but as their relationship deepens, Brett is determined to have her.

Alisha only wanted to help the family make amends. Now she's falling for the wrong Westerly.

Predictable

Unimaginative story, that plods on. Too many pronouns make th characters confusing. And a marginal narrator.

Loved the family dynamics!

I really enjoyed this audiobook. This was my first experience with Ruth Cardello's writing and I am very happy that it turned out to be a positive one. I actually won a copy of the second book from the series but decided that I wanted to start at the beginning which turned out to be a very good choice. I ended up listening to the book in only a couple of days because I was having such a good time with it.

I went into this book expecting a romance and it did deliver on that expectation but I was surprised that the story surrounding the Westerly family would be such an important element in the story. When Delinda Westerly offers an early inheritance to the first grandchild who marries and invites the rest of the family, Spencer and his friend, Alisha, make plans to walk down the aisle. They are not in love but are great friends so they see no problem with the arrangement.

Brett meets Alisha through Spencer and can't get her out of his mind. Alisha isn't afraid to stand up to the anyone and does just that when it can protect those that she cares about. When everything falls apart, Brett is the one who is there for Alisha and I loved watching their connection to each other grow. I thought that these two characters worked really well together and I liked how they seemed to bring out the best of each other.

Terri Clark Linden did a great job with this book. I thought that she handled a pretty diverse cast of characters very well and brought a lot of emotion to the story. I have listened to her work several times and have always found her narration to be very pleasant to listen to.

I would recommend this book to romance fans. I thought that this story was really compelling and filled with wonderful characters. I plan to read much more from Ruth Cardello in the future.

Good but not great

I like that she is assertive but hate that she wants to please everyone. She puts her own happiness on hold for her friends. She does not want to be like her mom but in a way she is because she puts others happiness above her.

It was ok...

It was ok, but the author didn't need to use the bad language. It seemed that she threw it in just to have it-it definitely didn't add anything to the story.

15 minutes

That was all it took for the very slow computerized sounding narration delivering stilted sentences and awkward speech to grate my last nerve and force me turn it off. The stuff between conversation was delivered very slowly or very fast, so adjusting the playback was not an option.

Narrations

I love the storyline! However, the narration was just not right. I had to just try and except that if didn't sound good. Fake is the only word or generic maybe I can use to explain it.

very meh...

This was boring and formulaic. The narration was exceptionally bad. The reader did not make much of the story. I won't read another book read by her.

Go for it

The audio book was both enjoyable, exciting, entertaining and definitely wants me to read the rest of the series.
