Publisher's Summary

Chloe Henson is in love with her boss. Completely, totally, head over heels in love. She knows he doesn't feel the same way - she doesn't expect him to. Sam Logan is successful and wealthy, and he only dates supermodels. When he could have any woman in Las Vegas, why would he want his shy, abundantly curvy assistant? Determined to ignore her heart, Chloe puts her feelings on hold. But when her brother disappears, and she ends up in the crosshairs of the Russian mob, she has nowhere to turn. Except to Sam.

Sam Logan has a problem. He has a thing for his assistant, but he knows he can't act on it. Chloe's the best assistant he's ever had, and over the three years they've worked together, she's become his best friend. Chloe is so shy, he knows one wrong move will send her running. When her irresponsible brother rips off a mob boss and vanishes, Chloe is in danger, and Sam's tired of waiting to make his move. The best way to keep her safe is to make her his. But with bullets flying and betrayal around every corner, can Sam convince Chloe that this is more than just a fling?

Annoying Female Character !!

The story was great! The female character was extremely annoying! I had to make myself finish the book...not because of the story...because the female in the story was over the top ignorant!

DNF

This is a classic case of the heroine "too stupid to live". Helloooo. Your irresponsible brother disappears and you don't want help to find him because you coddle him and blame yourself for his behavior, don't know what to do and continue to butt in even after you discover he's involved with the Russian mob. My goodness. What does Sam see in her?! She's annoying. The narrator didn't help. Her voice just didn't work out. Can't finish this story nor will I listen to the next one.

terrible narration

I couldn't handle the narration. It was so hard to listen to that I didn't finish the book. Will try reading it instead.

Female lead is an idiot!!!

I wanted a fluffy little dirty story. This is not well written at all. The narrator need to pick a Nother field. This is in the romance package so that is all of the complaining I will do. That is the only reason I will not rent. I might try another book if there is an NotherReader

I usually love Ivy Layne

First I'd like to say that every Ivy Layne book that I've read prior to this one, I loved. She has a way with creating characters and scenarios that makes it hard to put her stories down without finishing them. This story however fell flat for me. I had a hard time finishing it. The voice for the audible narration drove me nuts. The accent, tone, emotion etc. were all off. It distracted from the story. The characters and their back story was another issue. The female was so needy, clueless and self destructive that it was hard to imagine that she watched over her brother and not the other way around. Plus can we say low self-esteem. I know plenty of curvy women and they do not walk around feeling like they somehow deserve less because of their curves. It was hard to believe that a strong alpha male would find interest in someone like her. Being meek or even naive is one thing, but she was straight up clueless. She fought against his help, then cried that she didn't know what to do on her own. Uh hello, except the damn help of the man you supposedly trust because you have developed a friendship over the course of 3 years. This situation was to unrealistic and the female was hella annoying. I will continue to read Ivy's stories, because as I said before, I usually love them, but this one is a No!

the heroine was a pain

I tried to complete the story but the heroine had a mentality of a child. Throwing tantrums, not thinking of the consequences, her brother was in trouble was yes but my God once you hear the Russian mob than you stop looking and let the professionals handle it. It was infuriating to continue because of her multiple screw-ups.
