Publisher's Summary

Laurie Holcombe is out of a job, out of luck, and out of time. When a prestigious law firm hires her as an assistant to one of its senior partners, it feels like she might finally get back on her feet. All she has to do is put up with the whims of her infuriatingly icy boss, Diana. How hard could that be?

Diana Parker is Atlanta's top lawyer and isn't afraid to let everyone know it. She's driven, ruthless, demanding, and stuck in a failing marriage. Too bad she can't run her personal life as well as she runs her ordered office.

When a young assistant shows up with bright blue eyes, a cute Southern accent, and a streak of pink hair, Diana's sure she's all wrong for the job. And yet something seems to be pulling her and Laurie Holcombe together, drawing them into a secret, thrilling dance that's far too dangerous for a boss and employee.

Can they make rules for this powerful attraction, a way to keep each other at arm's length? But how do you resist the irresistible?

Contains mature themes.

Soooo ridiculously good!

I LOVED the physical book and remembered thinking if they could find the right narrator to do the audiobook, god help us. And sure enough - they did. I'll be honest - in the beginning I wondered what it would be like if Abby Craden narrated it (since I absolutely LOVE her work!) but was very happy discovering Anastasia Watley - who I'd never heard before. She uses two completely distinct voices - personal assistant Laurie's being a delicious Georgia/southern accent and then a reserved, controlled voice for Diana - the high powered ice queen attorney. When things heat up between the two of them - my, my, my, my, myyyyy..... Ridiculous hot. Ridiculous. When Diana loses control in her desire for Laurie... my god. I literally shivered at one point. If that isn't proof of skillful narration, I don't know what is. Turbulence is probably still the hottest, most delicious audiobook I've ever listened to, but this is a VERY close second. It is NOT for people who don't enjoy sex in their lesfic. But if you do, it's like you died and went to heaven. Lord. Have. Mercy. I'll definitely be listening to this one again.

Arrangements

are only and since only a facade of reality in a world of honest truths.
In this story 9f how it has honest true assets of the heart. I was hot of some of the action and moved in emotion. A. Walley has brought to my knees in her voice.

Brilliantly narrated!

This audiobook had me from the get go. It’s hot and steamy and doesn’t go like you think it’s gone go. The narrator does a brilliant job bringing the story to life.

Great story, great narrator

This is my first read of this author and I was very impressed. This book is well written and well edited. My only complaint is that one scene is missing, but it would require a spoiler alert to say which.

Erotic romance at it's best!

I am already a fan of this author's fanfiction, and her novels are even better. Loved how deeply we got to know and feel for Diana and Laurie. The narrator did the women and the story justice. 👍👍
