Publisher's Summary

Rule Number 1: Do Not Sleep with Clients

I was the best agent in the industry. More ruthless and cutthroat than any arrogant bastard you'd ever met.

The top actors in Hollywood came to me to get signed.

When I saw James Ryne, America's Sweetheart, standing across the bar, I wanted her body like I'd never wanted anything before.

I broke rule number one.

But, after all, I was a man. No one had ever mistaken me for a saint.

Rule Number 1: Do Not Fall in Love Again

I didn't know his name. I didn't who he was. All I knew was that he was deliciously handsome and he had to be someone to get into the most elite bar in LA.

He was too old for me, too experienced — the kind of man everyone warned me about. It was only supposed to be a one-night stand. I could have walked away. I should have walked away.

And then I was forced to walk away when my scandal hit the tabloids.

I broke rule number one and now I had to make the biggest decision of my life.

Risk my heart or get signed.

Better than E!

Watching E! Entertainment isn’t even as exciting as reading this book. James is on her professional way to the top but has recently had a scandal that no actress wants to have happen to them, unless they are a Kardashian. The only one that can help is someone that knows James in the biblical sense and he’s not so sure this professional mix is a good idea. Which is why this makes for an oh-so bumpy and sexy ride.

If there is one thing that is a common denominator between most of (because Memoirs) Marni Mann’s books, it is sex. Not just sex, but like hot and dirty and most definitely not your cookie cutter sessions. They are something to write home about. Something unique to Marni that you won’t forget and you haven’t read before. Yummy, even. Yep. Just... really good stuff.

Take away that and Marni’s books all differ vastly but are all so very, very good and Signed isn’t any different. It kept me flipping pages and kept my emotions high for the characters. I love a story that grips me and doesn’t let me go and Signed did that for me. I felt sumptuous as we lived the high life of an actress, as close as I will ever get but Marni did a brilliant job at painting a vivid picture of the high life. I felt angry and I wanted retribution most of the time because I cared so deeply for James and her personal battles. I laughed at the relationship between James and her best friend, Eve. We all have that spit fire friend that runs their mouth, if you don’t than you just might be that friend. Oh, and the sex scenes... did we already talk about those? They are pretty great. *sigh*

While definitely on the lighter side of Marni’s career, I’m not mad about it. I loved, loved, loved it. When I read the ending paragraphs I had a stupid smile on my face with my kindle clutched to my chest. That is the perfect ending to a book.

Abby Craden and CA Sorensen were great narrators! I thoroughly enjoyed their performances and what they contributed to these characters.

Good story, pretty good female narrator, TERRIBLE male narrator

The story was good. It was interesting and not like anything I’ve heard before. Warning: If the C word bothers you, be prepared.
Marni Mann is a good author. I will continue to seek out books by this author.
The female narrator was pretty good. Not great...but ok.
The male narrator was TERRIBLE. He sounded like Les Nessman (WKRP in CINCINNATI...google it) doing a 1930’s drama.
Please, please, please...casting directors, please cast appropriately aged, believable narrators for these books. The authors work too hard on them to have them ruined by a horrendous narration. And believe me, this narration was utterly horrendous. :(

Why?

Great story! Loved Abby Craden’s narration but C. A. Sorensen’s was just horrible, he sounded too old and without emotion it was so hard to get through the book.

Hollywood and Scandal

I really wanted to love this one. I enjoyed the Unblocked Collection and love Marni Mann's writing, but I just didn't love this one. I didn't like the story right away and I never really warmed up to it as I kept reading. I couldn't connect to the characters at all and I felt no connection between them either. I figured out the ending pretty quickly and didn't leave much to be desired between James and Brett.The narration was good for the most part. I liked both narrators well enough. It was their narration that kept me listening even though I wasn't all that invested in the story.

I "LOVE" Marni Mann

I "LOVE" Marni Mann, her books are guaranteed to be steamy, suspenseful, dramatic and an overall Goodreads. The stories are great, the characters are likable, and the sex is Hot. Signed.. did not fail to deliver all the things that fans love about Marni's books. They're so good and so well written that if time allowed I would read them over and over. Unfortunately with a career that requires 8-10 hr. days, a husband, and two teenage sons; whose schedules I'm completely at the whim of... for me narrated books are a necessity. I love narrated books and as an avid listener the narrator can make a huge difference. Abby Carden was perfect, her deep sultry voice set just the right tone and made a memorable impression. However the narration of C. A. Sorensen left something to be desired. At times it felt slightly as if I was listening to the voice of a grandfather. It was often Without Youth or appeal. As previously stated I "Love" Marni Mann, and I think she has woven creative and imaginative story. I simply think that it would have been better served by a better male narrator.

Cute romance

Cute love story with a dash of angst and suspense, but not much depth. Didn't love the male narrator, especially when he was doing female voice.

Starlet Age Gap

Signed by Marni Mann is book 1 of the Agency series.

I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this audiobook but it was a good, quick listen. Abby Craden and C.A. Sorenson were delicious narrators.

I’m generally not a fan of the age gap trope but this was done delicately and done well. This book tackles several current event topics. James is the young starlet who crashes into Brett’s in control professional demeanor. Their love story is believable and one that I was rooting for. I was genuinely surprised at the major plot twist but it felt too convenient to be plausible.

I can’t wait to listen to the other books in this series.

Narration is wayyyyy off

Did not finish. I stopped listening 3 minutes and 52 seconds into Chapter 2. The cover art is of a young, handsome man. The male narrator did not sound like a young person AT ALL. I hate to be ageist but it took me right out of the story. I was grossed out hearing him describe his attraction to an 18 year old woman. Gross.
I’m intrigued by the story. I will have to read this one in the Kindle app. Yuck.
