Publisher's Summary

Indecent Proposal

Manwhore. That's what the board of directors - and the tabloids - think of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing - and no one - will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.

Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents' funky boutique hotel back - even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It's a simple business contract - six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again.

But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband....

Hello unconventional love story!!!

I really liked this narrator. I'd been in a funk where I was not liking many narrators. But this one brought the characters to life!

This book is a 5 star re listen any day any time. I finished it in 1 day!

WHAT A GREAT STORY.. & PERFECTLY NARRATED TOO

We all know that there are a lot of these types of storylines floating around... an arranged marriage of convenience with an end date which turns into the real thing - and they're usually quite predictable, easy-going, light and fun. And so was this listen... but there was so much more depth to the story which was expertly narrated by Sasha Dunbrooke who brought to life the cold-hearted sexy handsome Playboy Billionaire Reese who'd been hurt and devastated before so vowed he was never going to let a woman hurt him again.... until he got to know Merina. Sasha also breathed life into the strong-willed, feisty, independent and beautiful Merina as she fought for what she wanted.... which slowly changed from bricks and mortar to flesh and blood. Reese thought his only destiny was to become CEO but it turned out to be an empty lonely and cold place without love and without Merina.

An addictive can't stop listening to it story that started out being between rivals and enemies... but over shared time and kisses for the Share Holders and tabloids, slowly developed into the real thing. There were times when Reese forgot his promise and let the impenetrable walls around his heart fall for a time but unfortunately he was his own worst enemy because he just couldn't get past his past... and up went those walls again. Merina was unsuspecting and unaware of Reese's past... but slowly the secrets of his past were revealed and rather than run she clung on to the hope that somehow she would conquer his demons and have it all.... but unfortunately it wasn't going to be that easy.

A really entertaining listen, great banter, humor, passion, seismic chemistry and toe curling sex... however it wasn't without some heartache and pain. This was a good story, but I'm sure what notched it up a degree was the awesome narration. Dual POV's and of course there's a wonderful HEA eventually waiting for us romantics to sigh over.

Worth a credit? I love bad boy Billionaires and the strong women who infiltrate their lofty indulgent lives and tame them so I was expecting to enjoy an entertaining four star listen.... however the characters - especially the emotionally broken Reese, the situations this doomed couple found themselves caught up in and the awesome narration easily brought it into the five star very creditworthy rating.

Interesting but contrived

The book kept my interest and was very well narrated. But it was one of the contrived fake marriage for gain stories and put together with several mundane sex exploits. Not very deep at all. However, I will say that the author has talent, but this story was too predictable and sappy. The plot - Reece needs a wife to prove to the board that he is the settled person they need to run the massive company. Merino is the perfect candidate because Reece has bought her hotel, which she loves, and is threatening to gut it and rehab it into a place Merino believes has no soul. He offers to deed her hotel back to her if she will agree to a temporary marriage and a performance to assure the board that Reece is settled. I am sure you know what happens.

Aweful narrator

The narrator is just annoying and I can't listen any more. Didn't get far into it. Could be a good story if you get passed the narrator.
