Publisher's Summary

When Hollywood sweetheart Mia Troy checks into the Victorian Rose, the only things on her mind are rest and relaxation before she begins work on her new movie in Boston. That is until she meets Sean O'Brien. From the moment she checks in, Mia is drawn to Sean, a reserved man who sees past her celebrity status. The co-owner of a successful bed and breakfast, Sean has accepted his position in life - until the day Mia Troy checks in. Despite his better judgment, Sean can't ignore his physical attraction to Mia. Soon he gives into his desire, telling himself all she wants is a quick fling to pass the time. As they spend time together, his feelings grow. But can love between two people from such different worlds ever last?

A semi-clean romance that easy to listen to.

I was going to say this is a small town romance, but part of it takes place in LA. I'm not a huge fan of movie star characters, but Mia's superstar status takes a backseat most of the time. The emphasis is on the romance of Mia and Sean.
Sean's character is kind of confusing. I can't decide if I admire him for sticking by his mom and making sacrifices to help her, or if I'm more irritated that he seemed to give up so much of himself to do it.
I feel like I have to address the reviewer who complained about the sex scenes and said there wasn't even a mention of a condom..were you listening? It's a book that gives you the lead up to the sex and then kind of closes the door. It's a little cleaner that way. There was definitely mention of condoms and the use of condoms. It was the reviewers shortsightedness, not the authors.
The narration by Em Eldridge was very good. Her voice is very easy to listen to.

I love all Christina's books

This is an awesome live story. Lessons learned and fears abated.

I thought the narrator was a little slow reading but I just sped it up and was fine.

One of my favourites

I absolutely loved this book because it had a story right to the end, The story was entertaining and kept your interest loved Mia and Shaun so good to read a book from the romance package that is not just sex scenes with a light story as a base. It seems so many of the romance package books are just rated sizzling and the sex scenes are basically copied and pasted many times over. Dont get me wrong I enjoy a book with sex scenes as much as anyone but not repeated every few minutes with barely any story. This book was relaxing and enjoyable wish there were more like this available in the romance package.
