Publisher's Summary

It's all fun and games until the sexy lumberjack buys your company....

Opposites attract when billionaire Bryce Dalton meets his lodge guest, Kat Jones, while she's on a corporate retreat. It's love at first sight for Bryce. For Kat? Not so much.

First of all, she's been duped. She'd assumed the sexy lumberjack behind the bar was the lodge's bartender. How was she supposed to know her one-night stand was actually the eccentric CEO who owned the place? To make matters worse, the charismatic but frustratingly unpredictable billionaire just bought her company.

Bryce is just doing what he does best - following his killer instincts. His gut is telling him that he needs this woman in his life, and he's willing to do anything to make that happen. Even buy her company. Turns out his chivalrous gesture is not quite as welcome as he'd hoped. And maybe, just maybe, he was coming on a bit too strong for his straitlaced, play-by-the-books crush. He just needs to make her see that their attraction is more than just lust; it's love.

Unfortunately, he only has one night to prove it.

Sooooo Good!

Oh Man!! I can not say enough good things about this book!

Let me start with the Writing. This was my first Book by Maggie Dallen. I was hooked at the blurb. I was in no way disappointed! The characters were easy to fall in love with. They had fantastic chemistry together. The writing felt so effortless and natural that it was easy to immerse yourself in their life and story. I loved it!

The narration was spot on! Lauren gave these characters so much depth. She elevated an amazing book and made it spectacular. I loved every piece of her performance.

Great job! I will be recommending this to all~

Amazing listen!!!

There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this book! Everything was perfect! The characters are likeable and relateable. The story is light-hearted and fun. The length is just right for an afternoon read! Maggie Dallen did a fantastic job writing this fun, witty, sexy book!

The narration was just as amazing! Lauren Fortgang was amazing with both the male and female POV!

Kat💘Bryce! Great Story, Great Audible Listen🎧

4.5 Wonderful Stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is my first Maggie Dallen book and it will not be my last. “Lust for Life” is a well written, well told story that grabs your attention from the start and holds it to the end. The storylines are interesting, with some fun moments, as well as dramatic, angsty and romantic ones. There is great character development and the chemistry between the two leads, Kat and Bryce is smoking. Thank you Maggie Dallen for this great story!

I listened to the Audible edition, Lauren Fortgang is a fabulous narrator and storyteller. She performs all the voices and brings the characters & story to life with the perfect dramatic flair. Thank you for the great listen.

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

Meet-Cute

Lust for Life (Sexy in Spades, Book One) drew me in with its synopsis. A meet-cute romantic comedy chock-filled with laughter.
Kat & Bryce began with lust, a one night stand. Character's evolvement & plot unfolding flowed through unmarred.
Rugged & old fashioned style of Bryce & Kat's reluctant self & destruction of her well laid out plans made this a provocative & fun listen.

Narrator Lauren Fortgang performance well suited the narative. Her portrayal gave these characters so much profoundness. Overall, everything flowed through smoothly with a good pace and tone.

The planner & the alpha

Kat is the consummate planner...she is attending a company executive team building event at a lodge and hating every minute. She fakes a sprained ankle on the second day and meets a sexy bartender. The bartender takes her to the library where they get to know each other...really ‘know’. The next day Kat realizes that her one night stand is non other than billionaire Bryce Dalton! Bryce is smitten with Kat and believes that she is The One but Kat doesn’t feel the same. After all, falling in love is not part of her plan. When Bryce buys the company to save Kat from her @$$h0!e boss, Kat is furious and quits. Now Bryce is working on winning over the infuriatingly stubborn woman who has stolen his heart.
Loved Bryce...he is, indeed, an alpha but his heart is in the right place. Kat takes some getting used to. Great HEA and narration by this new-to-me narrator is perfect.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Someone slap her

I just can’t with this one. I found the heroine to be the most annoying freaking whining, indecisive and yet unreasonable woman on the planet. And then her attitude was so uncalled for. She has some nerve acting like he did something wrong when she was the one that set all these stupid stipulations. Hey 👋 here is a great guy that wants to date you and all you can say is nope cuz it’s too soon in my “plan” for my life. Whatever! Ridiculous. I just want to smack to stupid out of her. Nope not worth my credit at all.

Cute story

I enjoyed the general plot of the story, it was cute and fun but some of the scene progression seemed to be weighed down by so much inner dialogue. As a result some of the character conversation was stunted and scenes progressed to slowly in my opinion. Aside from that, the narrator is probably one of the best that I’ve listen to.

Loved!

Lust for Like by Maggie Dallen was such a great story. I listened to it on audible and really enjoyed not only the story, but the narrator, as well. Well-worth the listen for those who love the opposites attract trope and enjoy plenty of heat and many laughs!

Kat and Bryce were great together. From their very first meeting, I was hooked. He follows his gut and she’s a planner. Despite their differences, they just make sense!

Loving Life

My first bilk by this author and it won't be the last. Same thing for the narrator. I enjoyed from start to finish. I enjoy office romances and this hit the right spot. A mistaken identity and finding out that man is your boss. Finding that you have to let love flow and not dictate when you fell and how.

Another Hit!

Maggie Dallen hits another homerun. Absolutely fell in love with both of the main characters. Great personalities and perfect meet cute! Thought some of Katheryn's decisions were ludicrous but she was smart enough to fix them! The narrator did a great job making me feel like a great play was performing before me. Great job with the story and performance! Looking forward to more.

Solid 4 stars

I enjoyed this listen. The author and narrator are both new to me. Kay drove me a little nuts in this book. While I did think she did grow in character I was hoping for a different ending. Overall great story with easy to listen to narration.

Nice short audiobook

This is a heartwarming story. She’s strictly type A and needs everything planned out, no surprises in her life will do. He’s a guy that trusts his gut and has done well with this. They meet and they both don’t know what to do with their feelings, it’s a great short story to listen to. This was my first book written by Maggie and I look forward to reading more. Lauren did a good job with the narrative as well.

Modern romance with a conventional feel.

This was a sweet and steamy listen. I loved they back and forth between the 2 MCs. It had more of a conventional romance feel to it which was a nice change of pace. It’s a quick listen for an afternoon in or doing chores.

A little cheesy, but in a good way.

One night, that’s all she needs, she’s never done it before, but, what the hell. She’ll never see him again. Famous last words. A cute, predictable read, and, dare I say it? A little cheesy, but, in a good way. Nothing here to offend, just a good old fashioned romance with some sweet sexy scenes. I loved CEO Bryce Dalton, sexy, smart, and an all round good guy. Kat on the other hand, was his exact opposite, uptight and extremely stubborn, and to be honest I wanted to shake her and scream, “what the hell d’ya think you’re doing woman?” Kat aside, it was enjoyable and easy to listen to. Narrated perfectly by Lauren Fortgang, who did a fab job with both Kat and Bryce’s POV.

Sexy lumberjack

This is a cute short HEA story that takes the primary Character out of her comfort zone. Catherine is forced to a nature lodge in the wilderness. She fakes all kinds of things so she does not have to participate in the bonding. She finds a sexy lumberjack bartender and has a one night of adventure of her own. What she does not know is that Bryce Dalton is a mega CEO and ends up buying the company that she works for. Will Catherine forgive him, or will she lose the love of her life?
