This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

Pro quarterback Cade Prescott's last play was to lose the Super Bowl for his team. To escape the bad press and recover from the disastrous season, he changes his appearance and hides away at a sleepy university town.

Andie Wales's first love is researching ancient bad boy kings. She is blissfully unaware of the Super Bowl and modern day bad boys. When her dog meets and mates with Cade's dog, Andie's first concern is to get her dog to a vet. She gets waylaid by Cade and his hunky good looks and has no idea just how out of her league Cade is.

Despite his secrets, Cade feels differently about Andie and thinks he might be falling in love. Unfortunately, his past catches up with him, and he is forced to make a difficult decision. Can a professional athlete and a research librarian truly prove the axiom that opposites not just attract, but were meant for each other?

Cliffhanger. Cade and Andie's story continues in Part Two.

cute

Cute small town love story. The Famous football QB hiding out from the media and just wanting to be left alone. The small town girl who wouldn't know who he was anyway. She treats him so normal he can't help but fall in love. What will happen when the QB can no longer hide?

I thought this was a sweet love story. I look forward to hearing where this story goes next.

narration was great- no complaints.

Quarterback Meets Librarian Romance

This is a short engaging story about a high profile quarterback that meets a small city librarian. She has no clue who he is and their relationship starts based on lies but the truth always has a way of catching up with you.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

The only downside to this book is that it leaves you hanging with a huge cliffhanger. Their relationship is new and trouble seems to be right around the corner. I’m looking forward to the next book in this fun series.

Sweet Football romance

Intercepted by Love is a sweet story about a football player that has gone into hiding. The sexy football player is attempting to just hide out and find himself, but he ends up finding much more than that! With an unexpected run-in in the library, Cade finds someone who doesn't know what he does and like's him for who he is. It does end on a bit of a cliffhanger but luckily the entire series is out!

The narration is good, Chris Abell has yet again done a great job!

Funny and charming

This story is funny and charming. This story is a cliffhanger and this goes on for 6 books. Both characters are lovable, and this the story so far is charming.

Cute start in this multi part story

The story that spreads out in various audiobooks, was delightful and a very pleasant surprise.
The story centers around Cade Prescott, a very famous football player whose last game cost his team the coveted title, and Andie Wales, a research librarian in a small college town.
They meet by chance when their dogs were getting “acquainted” and the attraction was immediate between the humans and their dogs :).
But Cade is hiding his identity and Andie is caught in his web of lies until his past comes back to haunt him. Will Andie forgive his deception and current problems or will she send him away? I am off to listen to part 2 to find out.

Another great 5 star

Love how Rachelle an author wrote another great five star listen (Story . I have listen to her sport ones. Love this one since it’s about football Chris as a narrator was great. . The characters were brought to life with Chris voice .

Hero is Cade. Heroine is Andie .

Both of the Hero’s and Heroine meet because of there pets. Lol yep the pets got it on before Cade and Andie .
Cade is a football player . He had a terrible last gave ..... he lost the gave ..... He couldn’t believe it . Cade also was annoyed by the attention he was getting.
Andie loves Bad Boys . But not just any Bad Boys Andie staudies Ancient bad boys from long ago her favourite is King David .
Does Andie find out who Cade really is. Do they make a go of it like their pets. Does 2 become 4

A sweet read!

Can a professional athlete and a research librarian truly prove the axiom that opposites not just attract, but were meant for each other?

It is a great, sweet and cute read that made me swoon.

Such a cute small town love story - love these type of stories!

The narration was good - a good listen!

Fun Chic Lit Romance-Part 1 of 6


This relatively short (just under 3 hours) contemporary romance was fun to listen to.

Rachelle Ayala introduces us to Andi Wales (female) a research librarian who specializes in the Old Testament "bad boys" and Cade Prescott, a pro quarterback who flubbed the final play in the Super Bowl causing his team to lose.

To escape the press, Prescott goes undercover and off the radar – he hopes. Until one day his dog meets and mates with Andi's dog. Before the dogs can finish their afterglow, Andi's dog runs away and is presumed swept up or stolen by a band of dog thievery hooligans.

Distraught, Andi frantically searches for her dog. Feeling a bit guilty for his dog's behavior, Cade joins in the search – while trying to stay undercover.

Please read the publisher summary or listen to the book for more details. I don't think that I can add anything else without spoiling.

Chris Abell has a wonderfully smooth voice that is a pleasure to listen to. I really enjoyed his performance. 4.5 stars

NOTE TO LISTENER: This is Book 1 in the series. It does end with a CLIFFHANGER. The story continues in Part Two. There are 6 books in total in the series and Andi & Cade's ups and downs are the focus. I would not advise listening to them out of order

Warnings: Mature themes

A Great Start to a New Series for Me

This is the first book in a series about pro quarterback Cade who's just made the biggest mistake of his career, costing his team the Superbowl and librarian Andie who doesn't follow sports.

This is a great story about how opposites attract, the chemistry between Andie and Cade is palpable and real.

Chris Abell did a great job narrating.

I can't wait to find out what happens between Andie and Cade (and their dogs ;) )

An Entertaining Part One. Bring on the rest!

It is a rare romance that can successfully throw together American football with the biblical King David in equal measures. The result is sweet, quirky, sexy and surprisingly real. Andy and Kade's story is a clear case of instant opposites attracting and the characters are stretched beyond their comfort zones. Between the mating dogs, the hidden identities and the infactuation with King David, the reader is in for an entertaining tussle. And this is only half of the tale.... i cannot wait to hear the rest!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great Story!

I was hooked on this book from the very beginning. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series. I hope the remaining books (3 - 6) are made into audiobooks. I enjoy the opposite characters of Andi and Cade. I am a dog lover and enjoy hearing about Golley and Red as well. I did not rate the book higher due to the fact that its a cliffhanger ending. (I do not like cliffhangers!) My preference would have been a much longer complete story instead of separate books. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.

Fun beginning to the series!

Sports romances are always a fun read and this serial story definitely has kept me intrigued. Meet Cade Prescott, quarterback who just screwed up his chance at winning the Superbowl. He goes in to hiding, and meets Andie Wale, librarian, who knows nothing of football, and the adventure begins. I am really enjoying their interaction, the history of their lives and meeting Andie's parents. Rachelle Ayala does a very good job of introducing Andie's dad to us, recovering from a stroke and the difficulties he is facing. When you have real life situations that occur in the storyline, it definitely makes it much more interesting to me. While the relationship of Cade and Andie progresses, the real stars of the story come out..the dogs. Red and Gollie are so cute and fun! Their relationship will bring a smile to your face each time they get together. Just be aware, this is a story in parts, so the first does end on a cliffhanger, so make sure you have book 2 ready to go!

Narrated by Chris Abell, he performs this story so well, you get lost for the hours that he is reading. I love the way he can bring the story to life with his voices, easily discerning each character and making you able to picture each as they speak. Wonderful start to this series!
