Publisher's Summary

It was an innocent mistake...All workaholic real estate broker Addison Andrews wanted was one night of pleasure, and picking the right guy was no different than shopping from a catalog, thanks to the dating app on her phone. His name was Wilder, and his profile was blank - just a sexy picture of a man who promised every wicked intention of a one-night stand.

The agreement was simple. One night. No last names. But the second their bodies melded together in the sheets of their posh Manhattan hotel room, there was no denying they fit together like two pieces of a broken puzzle. There's just one problem...Addison unknowingly swiped right on the one man she wasn't supposed to be with - her new stepbrother. All it takes is one bite of forbidden fruit to become addicted, but being with him has major consequences for their entire family. And if anyone found out about them, the career she worked so hard to build would crumble to the ground.

But Wilder Van Cleef doesn't care about the possibility of a scandal. He wants her, and he's willing to do whatever it takes.

Please note: This is a standalone, full-length romance novel with no cliffhanger.

Awful

I can't believe anyone actually listened to this narration before it was published. KM's portrayal of Wilder sounds just like the creepy, irritating voice of Jack Hide in the Fifty Shades of Gray series. It totally ruined the story. There was no way I could get into his character. I just wanted him to stop talking...Then there was the Kentucky accent of the mother. Aughhh. I couldn't take it . I plan on returning this and checking the book out from the library.

horrible narration

I have listened to over 400 audio books. The male narrator was fine but the female was horrible. She ruined my listen especially when attempting to sound like the male character. I kept thinking about stopping and returning for credit but forced myself to finish since the story was good. I can see now how how easily the wrong narrator can kill any hopes for a good listening experience even if the story is good.

Really Lame.

This book had a superficial storyline. I gagged and rolled my eyes the whole way through. Not worth the read.

awful

liked other things from this author but this was just so far fetched it wasn’t even remotely enjoyable from the “instant” falling in love to the point it interrupted their lives when they knew each other less than 6 months to the issues with the parents...disappointed... might have been somewhat believable as a preteen romance IFFFFF the characters where not GROWN ADULTS

Good book

Could have done without all the unnecessary attitude from Addison. Really made her come across as more of a Biatch than a strong career driven female. Then the over exaggerating angst of the “step” situation was a bit much. Performance was good and the male lead was amazing:)

Decent Story Some Poor Narration

The story was okay, though based on a false premise. Unless you are a Very strict Catholic there is no prohibition (legal or social) against step-siblings who share no DNA marrying. It might be disconcerting if they have grown up together since childhood, but in this current age of musical chair families, no one would turn a hair at two unrelated adults.
SPOILER ALERT.
Regarding the narration, I thought Thomas Fawley did pretty well, but I’m sorry to say that Katie McAble was not able to pull off a convincing Wilder. It was as though every word was followed by an exclamation mark, and the sound distinction between male and female was sometimes blurred together entirely.

Strangers romance. 1POV. HEA. Standalone.

This is is “hot damn” romance with strangers and coincidence meetings. It’s a somewhat easy listen with a touch of angst. The narration is good. The HEA is short. This is a standalone novel but it preps you for Addison’s sisters story.

disappointed

Wilder was the best character out of the whole book. He was the only genuine one. Addison and Coco were both vapid and materialistic. Granted They do portray very common attitudes in this day in time, but they suck

Ludicrous dilemma!

Good book except for the horror of a problem that is so NOT a problem! I can think of a lot of options that could have accomplished the same thing without being stupid!
