Publisher's Summary

He was infuriating, arrogant, and conceited. He was also my new seatmate. Fifteen hours stuck next to the definition of tall, dark, and handsome, and the only thing on his mind on our trip from California to Sydney...was me. Ky Bateman made no secret of the fact he wanted me, and I made it clear he drove me crazy. 

When my resolve finally wavered, we made a bet. I lost, he won, and I found myself on the back of his motorcycle, on the adventure of a lifetime. I never intended to fall for the master manipulator, especially when I knew I was keeping secrets that could destroy everything between us.  

All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

still drooling over the accents

One of my favorite parts of this book was the Cameo's from past characters. It was so fun and exciting to get a small glimpse of their lives again. (Grab her other books to catch some of the references. Lucy in the sky 💎😍) This is a standalone, so you don't have to read the others, but I have more fun when I'm already invested in some of the other characters.

Kai and Blake's banter was absolutely hilarious. I constantly caught myself smiling or laughing along with the characters. I was instantly in love with them from the beginning, but something odd happened starting in chapter 34. I won't go too in depth because I don't want to give anything away, but this was the first time that I can ever remember starting to not like a main character in the end. Don't get me wrong, the book definitely ends on a happy note, but there were a few things Kai said and did that just really made me not love him quite as much as I had the rest of the story. Also, without giving anything away, Blake was given a choice in the epilogue on something important, and based off of the way she reacted, I wouldn't be surprised if she repeated her own history.

To wrap it up, this is definitely a must purchase. The narrators were absolutely amazing to listen to and the store never once became slow of boring. Even with the bad taste in my mouth at the end, I still very much so enjoyed the resolution. Their banter seriously is addictive!!

5-to-4-to-3

Loved the beginning, disliked the middle, hated the end.

It all started out great. It was entertaining and some parts made me laugh but as i got more into the book i felt like I was loosing interest. It got serious too fast for my taste. Gosh and the dark past/secret she was hiding was very cliche. I honestly kind of felt it coming. From the point of revelation and onwards, it was just a disaster. I wish this would have been a bit more light-hearted....well it was up until the moment I just mentioned. I did not empathize for the heroin whatsoever.

Performance was great, love Christian Fox's voice. Maddison Rocks was good as well... the story not so much.

the narrators were both great!

I like him more than her. I'm seeing a theme with the Hero Club series, where some if the men are more likeable than the women. Which is a bit of a change from other romances. I really didn't appreciate the indecisiveness of the lead female but overall am glad for the happy ending.

Okay

The first book that started the “Hero Club Series” Soraya and Graham’s story Is “Stuck-Up Suit” by ViKeeland and Penelope Ward it took me forever to figure it out.
You don’t need to read the first book but if you want to....

The last 2.5 hours... Ugh!

First 75% 4.5 Stars
Last 25% 2 Stars

This was a really enjoyable book until the last 2 hours and 20 minutes when the conflict arose and it was dragged out for nearly 2 hours. I know lots of readers lives for the dramatic angst but it kills me. I probably skipped a full hour of repetitive thoughts and comments.

One thing I wish writers would stop doing is the 'stop, let's not discuss the important thing on your mind'! Argh!!! Who does that?

Christian Fox is the best

The story was entertaining, Madison did a great job! Christian Fox had me speechless, I am pretty sure I had dreams of his voice!! Awards should be dispersed immediately!

Maddison Rocks’ accent is perfect, Christian Fox’s attempt however leaves a lot to be desired.
