Publisher's Summary

Your heart shall be his, then will come the sting. You will suffer...and then you shall burn.

The words chill me to the bone. That’s my fate. At least, that’s what the fortune teller says.

Destiny, horoscopes...who believes in that? I sure don’t. I make my own future, thank you very much.

But when I meet Scott Danger, the words come back to haunt me. His name even comes with a warning label. Handsome, rich, and sexier than any man should be, he’s pursuing me hard and fast. Little ol' me, a bartender with a penchant for makeup and old country music.

He’s dominant and seductive, a predator caged in gilded threads, and I want to run just so he’ll chase me...catch me...take me. Shit. I’m in so much trouble, but I think I like it.

Still, those eerie words.... Do I tempt fate?

Is the psychic reading correct?

From the opening of this book, I was hooked. Madison, a hard working, smart women has her palm read and is told she will be stung by a scorpion and will be burned. Coming off of a bad relationship, this is not what she wants to hear. Scott comes into the bar that Madison works at, and when their eyes meet, the chemistry begins. These two are combustible, but Scott being a Scorpio gives Maddie pause. Will this reading come true? Lauren Landish writes a story that is filled with all kinds of intriguing developments. The relationships of family, corporate climbing, different social classes, violent relationships, and true love are just the beginning of this complex story. Throw in the daily horoscopes for good measure, the story evolves and shows how life is not always what is expected, but what is made to expect of it. Maddie and Scott are people with understandable love and fears, and it's easy to relate to each of their situations. I love each had their own family dynamic, Scott with siblings, Maddie with friends who were like family. The melding of their very different lives is so well written by Landish, it feels seamless. I loved this story and would love to see Chase or Olivia's story come next!

The narration of this book is amazing. I love both narrators, but together reading the different POV's energized the story! Melissa Moran's portrayal of Maddie is full of emotion, you can feel the angst, love and hope with each part of Maddie's journey. Pair that with Aaron Shedlock, who gives Scott an alpha protectiveness with a sheer vulnerability and the story is magic.

Thrilling and Delightful!

I love Lauren Landish’s writing abilities, the heat she puts into her plots and the beautifully love story that leaves you smiling. The narrators brings it to the table, making you lick your lips. Scott was a Scorpio and his horoscope for the day said for him to humble himself. Madison is taken to a palm reader by her friend. She was told that she was going to get stung by a scorpion and get burned. This story is hotter than a glowing coal snatched off the fire!

Awesome Story, Awesome Narration!

Lauren Landish outdid herself with this book! I was pulled into the story from the very beginning. This book is like a multifaceted gem with so many wonderful sides. Most of the characters in the story were endearing, the underlying message, the Dollyism's, the hope, the friendship, the love, the forgiveness, the family dynamics, the horoscopes, the humor, and the imagery. I loved how the book flowed and had realistic characters and situations. The karma in the book was great too! This is my favorite book by Lauren Landish to date. Melissa Moran and Aaron Shedlock added so much to the book with their POV narration. Both did great with the various voices. This book is a standalone listen, but I wish the author would write more in this theme. The fortune teller was memorable, even though she only had a cameo appearance. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrators in the future, and this book again.

Wow wow let this audio sting your heart

Wow wow. Love this one. So much. Lauren Landish knows how to grab your attention from the first word. And this was no exception. I have heard a few of Lauren’s audio and this one so far is my favourite. Lauren writes stories that people go through but with her stories there are happy endings.
Love love both Narrators. I would listen to Melissa and Aaron all the time. . Their voices were so smooth and they brought the characters to life

Hero is Scott. Heroine is Madison.

Madison was burned by an ex. To move on from the betrayal Madison beastie takes her to a fortune teller. Madison is saying the fortune teller is a hoax . But the fortune tells her a few things , , like a Scorpio. How she will burn . And more
Scott comes from a family that is rich and powerful. He’s the heir . Scott’s father and brother always shot his ideas down . I can see the brother is very jealous of Scott . After the last report in front of office team members Scott needs a drink . Scottband his friend head to Stella’s .

Once Scott and Madison lock eyes together not only do their hormones go haywire but so do their imagination.

Grab it and see do the fortune tells predictions come true.

CAUTION, DANGER AHEAD !

Madison gets talked into getting a reading from a fortune teller by her best friend Tiffany. She doesn't believe in things like this, but what's the harm? Madison is coming off a bad breakup. She was wronged, big time, by her ex and it seems after being read, her future isn't looking any brighter.
Scott Danger, member if the illustrious Danger family, son of Robert CEO of Danger Enterprises, is the second son and spare. Scott is reminded of this on a daily basis.
A chance meeting at a bar brings them together. Madison is working; Scott is there to drink. At least that was his original plan, but after meeting Madison, now he's not so sure. As the night goes on, they continue to flirt but the night doesn't end as either had planned. Scott leaves not knowing what went wrong. Madison is shaken to her core after remembering what the palm reader had told her earlier in the week. Days later, Scott is still replaying the night he met Madison. Soon they get over the bumps in the road and begin seeing each other. Could Scott be the one to guard over Madison while she guards his heart? Madison worries when the other shoe might drop. Scott? Not so much...but maybe he should.
ORIGINAL STORYLINE WITH AWESOME CHARACTERS THAT COMPLETELY DREW ME IN FROM THE START ! DEEP, RAW AND REAL ! CRAZY, INTENSE CHEMISTRY WITH UNCONTROLLABLE CRAVING AND INSATIABLE DESIRE ! ! ! INSANE, ALL CONSUMING SEX ! ! ! AMAZING NARRATION BY MELISSA MORAN & AARON SHEDLOCK MADE THE STORY COME ALIVE ! ! !
A MUST READ !

Great Story and Great Narration!

I love the story of Madison and Scott Danger (I love his name!). They share an instant lust-love. Scott is a rich man, a CEO, handsome and really possessive and protective with Madison. Madison is a barmaid, strong and independent woman. Their chemistry is strong and steamy. The secondary characters are also very interesting. The storyline, original and well written, kept my attention from the first page to the end. I love their HEA. The narration was really well done and easy to listen. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Scorpio

So far, I think Scorpio has been my favorite of Lauren Landish's books.

First off, the narration between Melissa Moran and Aaron Shedlock was near perfection. Both narrators did a wonderful job with their portions. They both had wonderful inflection and were great in making distinctions between each character.

I really thought the start of the story was interesting. The incorporation of the horoscope reading added a little bit of paranormal mystery. I mean would the things the psychic predict come true? From there, the opening of the chapters with the horoscope readings for the day were kind of a nice way to foreshadow what the upcoming chapter(s) would be about. Sort of guiding the story along. But they really ended up taking a backseat to everything else going on in the story. And there's a lot going on, but I really thought that Lauren Landish handled all aspects of the characters and their history very well. Never once did I feel like there were too many conflicts coming from too many angles surrounding Scott and Maddie. From Maddie's issues with an ex to her abandonment by her mother, being raised by her aunt and on the other side of that, Scott's own issues with family as well as the pitch he's trying to get approved at work. Everything plays off of / works well together keeping the story from feeling too bogged down.

As stated before, I think this is my favorite Lauren Landish (audio)book so far. I hope this book won't end up being a standalone as there's a lot of potential to continue the story with Scott's siblings.
