Publisher's Summary

I don't want to touch it. I really, really don't. He's egotistical, crass, and my patient's owner - which makes him totally off limits. Yep, that's right. He owns the wiener dog I'm currently working on. I've also worked on his Spoodle, his Cocker-shitzu, and a Cheagle - don't ask. It doesn't help that he also represents most of my jointly-owned veterinary practice's small clientele. We'd only just opened the doors a few months ago, and in he strode with a yelping Taco Terrier. One haughty look at our sparkling new facilities, he'd demanded royal treatment, even though I was currently finger deep up a squalling tomcat. Ever since then, he expects me to serve him. Any time. All the time. Him and his revolving zoo of dogs. One of these days I'm going to swat him for being so pompous, but I can't deny the way he handles his charges makes me want to see past the "do as I say and don't ask questions" barking exterior. But then last week...he caught me staring. His bossy commands switched to a cocky smirk. He gave me permission to do something I promised myself I would never ever do...if I want to....

Couldn't finish!

Let me say I tried, I really did. I stopped and took a break and tried again ( I did this a couple of times) but I couldn't get into the book. First the setting is in Australia but read without the accent. Second I am animal person but this took it to an extreme. And third when they started using pet toys as sex toys I stopped for good and returned the book. This book was not for me.

You had me at...

I could not put it down! Well, at least until the mini plot twist. I was so thrown by it that I had to take a short break to say to myself "WTF". Once I calmed I was able resume touching it.
Really the writing is beyond 5 stars. It was especially cute to hear all the English ways of saying American things. Not sure what's up with the writing as business but Tess & Pepper are spot on. I cannot wait until the next installment of ear porn.
And all the fur babies tugging at my heart strings. this really was a big part of making this epic love story so darn epic & irresistible.
CJ BLOOM was the vessel as Vesper. Sultry,smart, sweet & down right naughty.
Eric Michael Summerer is my new favorite male narrator. move over Sebastian York. Mama's got a new sexier, hotter & sweeter pet. Call me as I'd love to touch it, relax I mean your voice.
OMG the hot & hotter sex was off the charts!
WORTH A CREDIT!!!
WOULD LISTEN TO IT AGAIN & AGAIN!!!
Why are you reading this instead of listening to it???

All the above are my opinions. Sorry if you opinion differs. I am an Audible RomComDom Addict with over 400 of them in my library. I need a 12 step program or a way to pay for my habit ;-) Enjoy!

Hilarious romantic comedy!

The story in this audiobook was funny and had lots of sweet romantic moments, as well as some sexy ones. The heroine is a veterinarian with a very busy practice. The hero is a independently wealthy, somewhat eccentric guy who rescues animals, bringing them in to her clinic to be checked up on. They have an awkward chemistry, but he just keeps coming back! They begin to see more of each other over the animals and his rescue operation, where she finds he’s really a sweet, nice guy. The narration was well performed and I enjoyed this lighthearted book.

My Thoughts on Can't Touch This

This is the first book I've read were I would dub the genre as erotic romantic comedy. There were a lot of funny moments, really good characters, some interesting twists, and the interactions between Ryder and Vesper weren't just steamy, they were HOT and just flat out erotic. But I've got no complaints. It was a really good story. And I wouldn't hesitate to read another Tess Hunter book just like I wouldn't hesitate to pick up a Pepper Winters book. I actually hope there will be another cause I want Rupert and Polly to have a story. I just went in expecting a romantic comedy with some steam thrown in, but got way more than I expected.

The narrators for this were new to me but fantastic. My only wish was that there had been a little more voice distinction between Rupert and Ryder especially when the story was from Ryder's POV. There were moments when it sounded too similar and I wasn't sure who was talking.

5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!

First of all, Pepper Winters (Tess Hunter) writing a RomCom! Second of all, Pepper Winters writing a RomCom! I know! I'm floored!
Over the last year I have become a huge Pepper Winters fan and have read practically everything that she has written. And what I have read was dark, twisted, and so very far out in left field from what this book was. I totally understand the need for a pen name when writing a different genre. I kinda understand the whole "pigeon hole" aspect of it but I have to say that I love that she penned it as "Pepper Winters writing as Tess Hunter". I love a good RomCom but I can honestly say that I probably would not have read this had it not been for Pepper's name on the cover. She's a favorite and an auto-one-click for me. It just blows me away the versatility of Pepper's writing. She seemless flowed right into the RomCom genre and had me laughing my ass off throughout this book.
Ryder and Vesper's banter at the beginning was epic. Actually, their banter throughout the book had me busting a gut. What really got me was the humor thrown in during the sexy times. While Ryder had me squeezing my legs together right along with Vesper, he would say something that would have me laughing up a storm. But funnily enough, it didn't kill the mood.
The narrators did an amazing job giving the characters a voice. They really brought the story to life.
Pepper Winters has most definitely kicked it up a notch on my faves list with this foray into RomCom. I look forward to what's next on the Tess Hunter forefront.
