Subject: You're a flippin' idiot

Good morning, my dear, naive friend.

I hope you're enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.

Why?

Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure, he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon, Jo. His ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy who hears the word "no" only when it's followed by "don't stop".

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil...and before you say anything, I don't care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn't for sale.

Regretfully yours,
Lily

Please note: The Allure of Dean Harper is a standalone contemporary romance from USA Today best-selling author R. S. Grey with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be listened to separately.

Not Grey's Best

Some of Grey's work is fantastic (A Place in the Sun), but I don't know what happened here. The book feels so juvenile and as if Grey just slapped something together. The characters are so unlikable and annoying, and the book is predictable and far from believable. Sara, the female narrator, has a voice like nails on a chalkboard. Skip this book!

Too bad about the narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Read it perhaps but not listen to it. The female narrator got a shrieky, loud and whiney voice that says everything but smart.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Nothing special.

How could the performance have been better?

Change female narrator.

Could you see The Allure of Dean Harper being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Perhaps nick zano and Brooklyn decker.

Ugh! The narrator!

I literally couldn’t get past the 3rd chapter. The female has to be the top 5 WORST narrators I have ever heard and I have listened to hundreds and hundreds of audiobooks. I normally can get past poor narration in order to listen to the story but I just couldn’t with this one. I hope she is never used on any audiobook I come across again. Shudder.

Valley girl much?

I love RS Grey's novels. the female narrator of this book is so hard to listen to. She sounds like a 12 year old airhead. Just read the book. No nails on chalkboard voices.

Really Good!

This story was really good. I liked the friction
between Dean and Lilly. The writing was good and fun. Wish we had gotten more sex, as that was the only thing that kept it from going to the next level. It is a sweet, romantic read.

Sparky and adorable!

This is only my second book by R.S. Grey, but I am already hopelessly addicted to this enchanting storytelling, smart humor, and delightful auditory experience.

Dean and Lily were so much fun, full of sparky chemistry, a compelling push/pull dynamic, and - in the end, a whole lot of sweetness that tugged at my heart strings and took my breath away.

If you’re looking for a light, easy, super fun listen, you will not go wrong with this one!

Annoying voice and bratty heroine

The story opens up as with a bratty heroine who exploited a man for free and was super rude to him. Tf.

Wonderfully Funny Romance

What a thoroughly enjoyable romance. The performances were impressive and they story was fantastic. Lots of heated erotic moments, a story twist near the end that leads to some hijinks, lots and lots of laughs, and two likeable couples.

I loved Lilly's spunks and fire, her best pal Josephine is a true blue friend, Julian is a loyal boyfriend to Josephine and stand up guy, and Dean... is a man who is a bit complexed but with soft edges and not too proud to grow into being a better man. I can't wait to recommend this book to friends and family.

The perfect mixture of romance, comedy, and angst!

I really enjoyed this lighthearted listen. I usually listen to dark themes, or heavier erotica, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this. Loved the chemistry between Lilly and Dean, even if it was full of angst and hate. They were perfect for each other! I wouldn't necessarily say it was a "hot" listen but it was a cute romance! I will probably listen to the other books in the Allure series! Sometimes you just need a good love story with a HEA! Not to mention I think I learned some new drinks I'd like to try :)
