Publisher's Summary

It wasn't just her homemade brownies that made Walker find Elissa irresistible....

When ex-Marine Walker Buchanan stops to help Elissa Towers change a tire, he tells himself it's just the neighborly thing to do. And when Elissa finds herself baking him a thank-you pie, she's just returning the favor...right?

Both of them have sworn off dating: Elissa's determined to protect her little girl, and that means ditching her taste for dangerous men...especially former Marines with dark secrets.

Walker knows that he's not cut out for hearth and home...his own crazy family made sure of that.

But the sparks won't stop flying between them.

Now the two are struggling to keep their relationship "just friends", but with every kiss, their rules fly out the window.

exciting

I listen to books all the time, and need them to hold my attention because I have a low attention span. This book was exciting and held my attention. I have listened to this book more than once and I have only had it a few weeks. I suprisingly I heard some things I missed the first time. This book is part of a series and it would be good to lisen to the books in order which I didn't. Either way it's very entertaining. I hope the author put more of her books on tape and extend this series. I was sorry it ended. There are some better than others, I enjoyed the series. I think Tempting is the best next to this one

Loved It!

I really don't like to read... books aren't my thing. But boy did I get hooked on this one! It was hard to put down. It was fun, fast paced and charmingly sexy. I can't wait to read her new novel "Sizzle!"

loved this book

I half to say I so enjoyed this book, I wasn't sure even though the other reviews were good but once I started this book I had a hard time putting my I pod down I wanted to work out longer at the gym just so I didn't half to put it down. I enjoyed the romance part of this book and that it took time to develop, they weren't instantly in bed and that was nice for a change. I liked the twists and turns in this book some you expect some you don't and that was very fun, I hope that you enjoy as much as I did

Love this series!!

This is the second of the 3 (4th due out soon) Buchanan Series. It is a bit more serious but still sexy, intriguing, exciting and touching. I love all three (so far) of these gems but be certain to read them in order. I read them out of sequence and had to re-listen to one of them to pick up on several past characters that were glanced over in later books. Listen and enjoy!

Light but I liked It

I wasn't sure if the voice was going to bug me but ultimately it didn't. It was a nice light story that took me away from work. I found myself listening to it whenever I could and even put it on my phone in case I wanted to listen while waiting.

Review

Cute story, very formulaic with all the elements, much in the vein of some of the Evanovich titles. The narrator did a great job with the cast of characters.

Its good but…

What did you love best about Irresistible?

I loved that you weren’t sure about what was going to happen. The mane characters had a very nice storyline going but I also liked the supporting characters stories. Or the little hints we were able to see.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cecelia Frontero?

I have to be honest. I did not very much care for this narrator. I would have much rather Therese Plummer. I did like Ms. Frontero’s voice but I did not think her voice distinguished the characters successfully. In my opinion; when your listening to an Audiobook you need to be able to KNOW who is speaking at the time. I also didn’t like the fact that Noemi’s accent was all wrong! I have to admit I felt like she didn’t give the characters the proper voice. (Sorry)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved when Walker said: 'Yes, I'm your Daddy'... Just about broke my heart. (A few othe moments but only sharing 1)

Any additional comments?

The last book left me wanting more of Penny and Cal’s story but I’m glade this wasn’t a continuation but rather a chance to get to know more of the Buchanan family. I love the fact the series will apparently expand a little bit more on the Buchanan family. I’m starting to like this family very much. (So even-though the narration was not my favorite, I WOULD STILL GET IT!)

Good Book .. Bad Reader

I like the book but after enjoying the voice of Therese Plummer .. Cecelia Frontero does not do it for me. The book was good but the reader brought it down!!!

A Good Read

This is a nice continuation of the Buchanan clan. I like the way the characters cross between the books so you keep in touch with the old main characters and learn more about those who take the spotlight. This is light enough for an easy read, but has enough depth to keep you interested.
