Publisher's Summary

When a mysterious text message summons May Wexler to a biker bar in downtown New Orleans, she knows something is very wrong. Her sister has sent out an SOS, but when May gets there, she's nowhere to be found and May is the one in trouble - she's wearing pink espadrilles, she's got a Chihuahua in her purse, and she's in the middle of a shootout.

After tall, muscular Ozzie comes to her rescue, May has no choice but to follow him to safety. At the headquarters of his private security firm, the Bourbon Street Boys, she finds a refuge for the night - and the offer of a job. But it's not long before a gun-toting stalker isn't the only complication in May's life: the more time she spends with Ozzie, the less she can deny that they've got some serious chemistry. A wrong number got her into this mess...Will it also get her the right guy?

Funny, light and distracting

This book was perfect for the moment I heard it.
After a few sad, heavy stories this was like a breeze of fresh air...
The first chapters were a little slow with the heroine descriptions but it picked up and became very funny snd entertaining, a little break from the daily reality.
The narrator did a great job. I had the same fun with Rock Chick series from Kate Ashley that I love...
If you like to unwind a little and have fun, this is a good book.
I do not know if I would rate 5 stars any other day but, it was a great book for me today, I did not see the time pass...
Totally recommend for the ones looking for some time out.

Entertaining, LOL moments

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It was worth the credit. I appreciated the narrator but her man voices just didn't conjure the men she was discribing. I appreciated the humor. It was a pallet cleanser for me after heavier depressing novels.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The protagnanist.

Have you listened to any of Emily Foster’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No this was my first. Quite a. It of her dialog is immature, eye rollers, but overall I liked it. I was in the mood for this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The beginning was really funny especially if you have ever had even. Tiny similar circumstance.

Ditz

I really did not like the female protagonist in this one. I rolled my eyes in the back of my head for most of the story. Everything seemed to perfect and rushed too.

Awful!

The main character is so ditzy and juvenile in the way that she speaks that I just couldn't finish it! I read others reviews and some came to like the airhead main character so I kept plodding on through 2/3 of the book trying to give it a fair chance. Sorry, I just can't take it anymore! I listen to a ridiculous number of books and this is the single worst character ever written! Her dialog sounds as though she in grade school! I love a sassy snarky female lead but this one sounds so dumb that I cannot possibly buy into any guy being remotely attracted to her.
If we could swap out the main female character, this may be a decent book. The plot has promise but good luck getting through it without cringing every time the female lead speaks. So so bad!

I did not enjoy this book at all.

The lead character was insipid and a constant contradiction. she was supposed to be smart, graduated Summa cume laude, but constantly need the most obvious things explained to her. Maybe the author assumed her readers were dumb. The narration added to the vapid air surround the heroine. Thankfully by the end of the book she gave up her half hearted attempt to pull off a Cajun accent. I cannot recommend this book.

Meh...

The storyline was okay. I did not like how the main character May was so immature. Had me cringing a couple times, kind of wanted it to be over about Midway through the book.

Loved this book! :)

I wasn't sure about this book because of the overall low rating but I decided that under $10 I'll give it a listen and return it if I don't like it. I LOVED this book! I Cannot tell you how many times I LOL :). I LOL with tears when telling my husband about certain scenes. I was laughing so hard I couldn't get the words out. It has romance, one good sex scene, the mystery/suspense is light. The story focuses more on the relationship of the H/H and the secondary characters.

This is my first time listening to an Elle Casey book and I loved it. Emily Foster did a great narration/performance. I'm going to look for more books by Emily and Elle.

When I purchased this book I had just finished listening to two dark suspense thrillers and was going to go to a good 'ole funny standby but then I decided to give The Bourbon Street Boys a listen. I'm glad I did. It was great. I'm looking forward to Book 2.

Is this book worth a credit? I will have to say no since it was under $10 but I would not have been disappointed if it had cost the price of a credit.

This is a book that I will listen to over and over

I couldn't finish this

The main character in this book is moron!
There, I said it.

What kind of idiot gets a text from an unknown number and just assumes it's her sister without a simple "hey sis, is this your new number"?

Then the guy who saves her life tries to help her and she's all like "I'm not going to listen to what you say because even though you gave me your business card and rescued me from a hail of bullets I am going to assume that I know better than you!"
Not once. Not twice. But THREE times she pulled this mistrusting nonsense before I had to finally turn the damn book off because I was at work and I'll be damned if screaming at fictional voices in my head is how my coworkers finally find out I'm nuts!

All I can say is thank God I got this book for free during the BOGO sale because if I had even spent a whole credit on it I would be furious.
As it is I'll save this one for when I'm truly desperate for something.

Ehhh

The story line had potential in the beginning but overall I felt May acted and talked like a 16 year old girl. Way too much head talking too to the point I would fast forward to get on with story instead of her narration of what she was thinking constantly plus there was no POV from Ozzie as well. Maybe others like that but not me. That's why it's just my opinion.

light and funny

Light hearted, loved the dog relationship it made the book for me.
Otherwise it was a bit twee for me.
I can understand her beating Dev with an unexpected tazer but she was no martial arts student all a bit too unbelievable for me.
I will listen to the other books though as I liked the characters.

disappointed

I really liked the start of it, it was engaging. There was some word choices and the way the main character, May, reacted that made it feel not very genuine and broke the spell that a story weaves. I also hate the sex scenes, I'm no prude, but I just found them unsatisfying and awkward to listen to, compared to others I have read or listened to. I also personally was disappointed he actually owned a security company having worked in one means, I thought he was an undercover cop.

entertaining book buy felt short

Overall it is an OK book. The characters are entertaining but the story felt a bit too superficial.
