Publisher's Summary

There’s a fine line between lust and hate. 

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem. 

His mouth is. 

And the stupid things that come out of it. 

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me....

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on. 

And it doesn’t involve talking. 

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it? 

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t. 

Except he left me a little keepsake. 

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

Perfect Enemies To Lovers Read

I don't think I could have loved Drew and Kendall more than I do right at this moment. This was the first book I've read by this duo and the only thing I didn't like about this book was that it ended. This was a perfect enemies to lovers read. It had some seriously hilarious moments that had me laughing out loud and I may have even shed a tear or two when shiz went down. And let me say, the narrators were the perfect voices for these characters. I will be reading a lot more from these authors in the very near future.

F@#k if I know🤷‍♀️😏💖💕💖

Beautiful story of redemption for Drew. Was not expecting the reason for Drew's weight loss. Must say I wasn't a fan of him in All About The D. Drew grew up, clean up his act, and became a man any woman would be proud to have at her side. I however was not a fan of Kendall. Her ability to think the worst of Drew always did not endear her to me. I love their banter though, this was a fun, sexy, heartwarming read. Jacob Morgan was outstanding, Muffy Newtown is 4⭐ for me, did not enjoyed the way she pronounce any word that ended with r, it was drawn out and very distracting.

Nuh-uh! No way! Except...that Thanksgiving weekend where they get snowed in together in a cabin on Mt. Hood. Has Drew really changed? Kendall thought so then she's proven wrong...or has she? Throw in a surprise pregnancy and now Kendall and Drew are totally linked together for life! Will this pair be able to get past miscommunications and social media bombs and have a happily ever after? Buckle up and get ready because this book will take you on a wild ride!

Absolutely Loved This Story!

Mount Hood! where everything happened! This was such a fun listen for me, it helped that my 2 Favorite Narrators made the story come alive! Drew is Kendall's client. She has her own PR business. Her bff is also his bff. So, even if she is not crazy about him, they run around in the same circle of friends. Ohh how I love their trip to Mt. Hood! It's so cozy and romantic! This was a refreshing, romantic and steamy, and funny love story! I enjoyed the storyline and the characters and the narrative! I love steamy and funny romance with an original storyline.

Even better in audio!! Aural ecstasy!

I had read this twice already in e-book. I love Drew & Kendall! So, when the audiobook came out, I may have stopped listening to all else and started on it. FLOVED it!!! Drew was exactly as I envisioned him. Third time through this story and I love it even more than before. Drew has completely redeemed himself in my world. He is no longer a De-Merritt. I already adored Kendall. Together they rock. Toss in an adorable kitten, a feisty grandma, a few fantabulous friends and family, and fantastic narration, and you will be in for an amazing journey to aural HEA.

A DIRTY, FLIRTY FUN-FILLED FREEBIE

What a very enjoyable, fun, light, deliciously dirty, humorous and very entertaining enemies-to-lovers story this was as lust blurs enemy lines. Drew and Kendall become lovers as the snow brings a truce - which enables misconceptions to get cleared, seeds for the future are planned and planted.. and the mutual feelings of hope begins to blossom under the blanket of white. But when the snow turns to slush, misunderstandings evolve threatening to destroy the tentative balance this loveable couple have reached.. and will continue to threaten everything until the weighty words of undeclared love are finally spoken. These two authors have successfully written a delicious push-pull love story with impressive character growth.. however it was Jacob (sigh and wipe the drool) and Muffy who brought the story of the sexy reformed Playboy and the driven independent businesswoman to life. They injected the confusion, the lust, the chemistry, the snarky banter, the hurt, the heartbreak and the passionate feels during Drew and Kendall’s unstable route to happiness.. and together they made this heartwarming sweet story come alive. Worth a credit? Yes it would’ve definitely been creditworthy.. but YAY it’s another Audible Escape freebie that shouldn’t be missed.

Kendal is so annoying!!!

Kendall is the most annoying character!!!!! The only reason I finished this book is because of Jacob Morgan. Muffy Newtons annoying narration is perfect for the annoying and stuck up Kendall character. She’s very judgmental and complains constantly. Terrible!!!

An enjoyable read

I quite liked this book, although the female narrator really needs to work on her male voice because it was awful and very off putting. The book was witty, sexy, and had good characters. Drew a reformed playboy is every girls dream, and Kendall is smart, successful and career driven. They had great chemistry from the beginning and he treats her like a princess, even when she tells him her secret he’s by her side through it all. The only downside to this book was that it was too predictable for me. Every new relationship has afew bumps on the road but theirs was just too perfect. In saying that still a great wee read.

Couldn't Finish It

The narrator Muffy Newtown annoyed me too much. I tried to get used to her (non) comic timing as I thought it was a cute story. However, the recurring emphasis placed on wrong words in a sentence was the worst. It was so annoying, I had to stop half way and return it.
