Publisher's Summary

I was happy with my life. Okay, it wasn't perfect, but I had a mom, dad, and brother that I loved, a best friend - with benefits - and a decent job that paid enough for me to take care of my responsibilities. Then, he walked in to my life, and everything changed.

When handsome billionaire Jal Lindstrom enters a high-end Philadelphia hair salon, he finds himself under the care of 21 year-old Allie Dodds, a sharp, intelligent woman who doesn't seem impressed by his wealth or position.

Intrigued, Jal expertly manipulates events to ensure they meet again, even though obligations to his family make things complicated. Complications, such as getting a ring on the finger of a Philadelphia socialite his mother wants him to marry.

Torn between their hearts and their families, Jal and Allie have more in common than they know, but a single secret can destroy everything before it's even begun.

Great Story

Loved the story but the narration was poor. Would have enjoyed it more if someone else had read the book.

The billionaires Mistress

this was a good sires! I believe it was 5 book placed all together. It reads as one whole book, so i am not to sure on how many books it is total. I was to envoled in the story.
The story is great. I love the story line of I really am not in love with this person, I want to marry this person, but for some reason or anther I can’t.
This story has a ton of twists and turns. its not straight forward as you would think. it totally makes it interesting!
I would love to spell the plot line, I am not big on giving spoilers. but i will say it does seem that everyone is some how everyone is connected in this story. hold on tight, because things are about to get interesting!
I loved the character development! but ne thing i was not happy with was the Narrator. I found that odd, because she is the writer of the book! But sadly it was more like she was just reading the story. it was VERY hard to tell who was saying what. or what character was even talking. such a bummer. it is a good book, I am just not happy with the narration.


I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boo

please stick to writing

I was so disappointed. I really was looking forward to listening based on the story preview but I couldn't listen past the 2nd chapter. I tried but i just couldn't. it was being read monotone. there was no difference in voice from narration to female voice to male voice. it was all the same. not only was this confusing but it's kinda hard to imagine a man is super sexy when they are speaking in a very female voice. I have listened to other ms parker books and loved them and I am sure I would have loved this one as well but her narration of the story made it impossible to listen to for me...

It's ok

I would like to say I love the writers books, but she should not narrate her own books. Almost every book I've heard the narrator will change their voice with each character where she doesn't. So, this makes it hard to listen to.

MS Parker needs to keep her day job.

As a narrator MD Parker is awful. And I mean absolutely horrid. I love her books though. They are always masterfully written. Going to get this one written at some time in the future as I can’t do her narration, it’s that bad. And I am annoyed because I know it’s likely a great book.

Complete torture

The person reading the book is monotone there is no emotion no feelings nothing!! I am not even done with the book yet and I am struggling to keep at it since I paid for it. If only I could get a refund!!!!!! As for the storyline, it's ok a bit slow but with the person reading it she is killing my eardrums!!

The narrator took so much away from the story.

I never actually write reviews but this narrator was so had to listen to. The pauses were off, couldn't tell who was speaking , and names and pronunciations kept changing

Great story, BAD reader

The story kept my attention, but MS Park should kept to writing....NOT NARRATING. The narration made the story very hard to follow.

Good story, mediocre narration

What disappointed you about The Billionaire's Mistress Complete Series?

My biggest disappointment is the last book of the series jumps around way too much. You'll finish chapter five and then it goes back to chapter four. Then you finish chapter six and it goes back to chapter five and does this at least four times so you're totally lost. I still don't know if I got the whole story. Honestly, I feel like I should get my money back on this one. Plus, the ending was VERY hurried. It takes four books for them to get together then there's a big scandal that ends very quickly then boom they're living happily ever after. Very disappointing.

What did you like best about this story?

Her brother! He seemed like such a sweet kid. I wish it would have involved him more.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration really threw me off several times. It was very monotone and unless you pay very close attention you forget whose point of view it is from at the moment because everyone sounds exactly alike. The exclamations are just monotone and dull with no real excitement behind them.

What character would you cut from The Billionaire's Mistress Complete Series?

Her half-sister who is a lesbian. That was pointless to me.

Any additional comments?

Needs a different narrator with Ally and Jal being read by two different people.

How awful???

I can't tell you how bad the narration is, monosyllabic which made me skip to the end . What a pity when there are so many great narrators out there.
Give this a miss.
