Publisher's Summary

I was her first love, and I'm going to be her last....

On paper, I've got it all - good looks, good friends, a killer business, and gorgeous women throwing themselves at me from every corner of the globe. But I still can't get one woman out of my head.

Her. Adeline Klein, the sexiest little smartass in wire-rimmed glasses and a polka-dot bikini to ever bring a man to his knees.

God, she was something....

But I'm pretty sure she hates me. I've tried to track her down, but it's like she dropped off the face of the earth. Then one day there she is - stranded on the side of the road, waiting for rescue, like Fate has arranged for me to be her knight in shining armor all over again.

Only she would clearly prefer to kick me in the balls. Or the face. Or maybe the balls and the face simultaneously. But do I let that keep me from making her come on the slopes or dampen the fire that flares between us every time we touch?

No way. Because some things - like sweet, wounded women with hearts of gold and souls of pure platinum - are worth fighting for.

Meant for You is a steamy standalone second chance romance with a swoony HEA.

Romance with an unexpected paranormal twist

What did you love best about Meant for You?

I loved the witty banter between the characters, especially Nate and Addie. Mitch and Shane also brought some wonderful comic relief.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that the book kept me on my toes. I'm not normally a fan of paranormal, but I thought it was an interesting addition and that it fit well with our characters. They are so quirky, especially Addie, that it complemented their second chance romance well.

What about Kitty Bang and C.J. Mission ’s performance did you like?

There was so much emotion and feeling in their narration! Both gave amazing performances that had me invested in the story, but I was most impressed by Kitty Bang's male voices! Her Nate was incredible!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I was drawn in right from the start and couldn't wait to find out what had happened to Nate & Addie! The story took some unexpected turns, but overall, this was an enjoyable second chance romance.

Any additional comments?

If you're not a fan of paranormal at all, this may not be the book for you. I wouldn't classify this as a paranormal romance, but there are enough elements woven into the plot that it's worth mentioning. Also, the cover of this book/audiobook is really confusing since it features a man in a suit and that really has nothing to do with the book or characters. I guess you could just imagine it's Nate, but it just seems like an odd choice for this book.

Great story!

What made the experience of listening to Meant for You the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the story and the narrators help bring it to life.

What about Kitty Bang and C.J. Mission ’s performance did you like?

Their voices are awesome.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it took several sittings.

Any additional comments?

I really liked the story, though it was heartbreaking of what Addie had to go through. It mentions Magnificent Bastard a few times, which I though it was rather cute. Magnificent Bastard is one of Ms. Valente's books. I would not classified this as a paranormal romance. I'm a big Lili Valente fan and I think she does it again with, Meant for You.

Another great MB series book!

Lili has done it again with her latest book in the "Magnificent Bastard series (MB)". While each of these books are standalones I do recommend reading the others as the characters from other books are mentioned so you can catch up on the lives of the other characters. Don't worry though if you haven't read the other books, you aren't missing much if you just right in with this book, there isn't a subplot that you miss and these characters are just minor players. I still recommend going back and reading the other books as they are different than this book though but just as funny.

Now onto this book's review, I am huge Lili Valente fan and try to listen to any of her books when they are available. This book was different from her other books in the MB series as it wasn't quite as funny and it dove into the paranormal realm. I myself am not a fan of these types of books but I found that the way Lili handled this was tasteful and not overdone and I found myself liking the book and enthralled. It wasn't over the top and still had humor and kept me interested. I would recommend this book to anyone even those who aren't normally into these types of books as it still contains Lili's normal humor found in the other MB series while diving into the paranormal realm to satisfy those that want to dive into that light version of that type of book as well.

The narrators both were right on point with their performances bringing light to the situations they were in. This was my first audio book my Kitty Bang and I enjoyed her inflections and tone and thought the way she brought the character to light was on point. This was my 2nd book by Cj Mission and again his performance was great. You could feel his emotions through the performance. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another audio of either of these narrators.

I am sad to see the Magnificent Bastard Series end but excited to see where Lili Valente takes us to next!

Outstanding Story by Lili Valente

OMG I love reading LIli Valente books but listening to them on Audio are so much fun and entertaining. You get more into the story-line and characters. I loved listening to the different characters in this story. Addy and Nate were amazing but it was also fun to listen to the mean old Eloise and too Mitch and Eduardo. I can't wait to listen to more amazing stories by this talented author.

it's a different kind of romance

first of all let's just say the cover does not match the storyline I don't know what they were thinking. this is about two teenager kids who find each other who grow to love each other within the summer for their reasons they have to separate. 7 years later they meet up again and it ignites their lust and love and feelings to arise. what makes this book so different is that it has paranormal if you're not into ghosts or spirits I don't want to say it has a lot but it has more than a few which I did enjoy it made it a little bit more intriguing. I did like it and at the same time I didn't I thought the guy was a little too mushy for me but overall it was good.

Love those Magnificent Bastards!

This audiobook is one in the Magnificent Bastard series and I enjoyed every minute of it! The hero and heroine meet as a summer romance, and even though she’s a 16 year old early high school graduate they begin a relationship “just for the summer”. Nate, the hero, didn’t plan on falling so hard for Addy but he did and decides to change his college plans because of her. Unfortunately, his father is not one to be thwarted and he ends upon London after he’s unable to find Addy anywhere. Later, their paths cross and things had turned out differently than either had planned. Now they have to find out if there is anything left of that summer love, or has it gone. Narration was very well done.

Great story...be warned...it has ghosts

This story was awesome, unique, and pulled me in from the start. Its captivating and well written. There are some spooky ghosts parts that I wasnt expecting (and i usually stay away from scary movies and books). It wasnt a good surprise for me but it works so well with the book.

loved this story!

I loved this book, and love the audio version every bit as much! It's a great story of second-chance romance with a few unexpected plots twists and turns, and smoking hot passion.
The narrators were wonderful, and Kitty Bang does an excellent job with both female and male voices. She really brought her character to life! I definitely recommend this one!

Second Chance Love With A Twist

It's not attraction, not exactly, not that first morning. It's a spark, a flicker of recognition, a warning that things are about to change in ways I never could have imagined when I woke up in my bed that morning, so certain the path was mapped and the way was clear.


And, so another love story begins...

I'm a huge fan of Lili Valente, and have absolutely loved the romantic comedy series revolving around Magnificent Bastard Consulting. These books make me laugh, swoon, melt, and have introduced me to some of the Lili's most lovable characters ever. Addie Klein made her first appearance in INCREDIBLE YOU, the quirky, bookish friend of Shane Willoughby. When she ran for the hills at the sight of one Nate Casey, I knew that we would be seeing much more of the two of them.

The backstory between Addie and Nate is endearing and a little bit offbeat, and exactly what I've come to expect from Lili. Although they're just kids, really, the link between the two is strong nonetheless, and I didn't doubt the depth of their feelings for a minute. But this wouldn't be a Lili story without a twist, without some turbulence and angst, so, that perfect summer love? Yeah, not so perfect.

One of the things that I love the most about this story is Addie. Sure, Nate's smart, funny, successful, and determined, but Addie, seeing her stand up for herself and start taking charge of her life, just, heck yeah. As a big fan of strong women, this is what made my heart beat a little bit faster. And, honestly, that strength and spark are what make Addie, well, Addie, and what makes Nate love her as much as he does.

MEANT FOR YOU is more than just a second-chance love story. It's also about friendship and finding oneself, with a strong dose of what I affectionately like to call "woo woo," because there is a definite paranormal bent to this story. But it all comes together so very nicely to give us one very wonderful read.

Characters and dialogues are definitely some of Lili's strong suits, and, with this series, she's created one heck of a delightful little world. I love revisiting characters from earlier books in the series, and the text messages that abound are some of my favorite things, like, ever. It's really easy for me to give MEANT FOR YOU, as well as the rest of this sexily charming set, 5+ stars. Missing out on them would be a real shame.

Another Winning MB Tale

A heartwrenching and heartwarming second chance love story in turn. A first love that crashed and burned a unique opportunity that has their paths crossing again, that's the story of Nate and Addy.
I love this story, it's a winner (unsurprising, because Lili Valente always delivers). And the audio narrators are a fantastic addition to a fabulous story!

Meant for you

This was my first ever audio book and I'm hooked!!! I loved the story of Nate & Addie.
The twists and turns in the story kept me on my toes. There was laughter and sadness with these two. A great romance with a touch of naughty. The voices of the readers were well scripted. Can't wait for the next one!!
