Publisher's Summary

Book number one in Samantha Chase's popular Montgomery series.

There's no time like the present...unless you're still running from your past. Executive assistant Emma Taylor is desperate for a little time away - away from her job, from her life, and from thoughts of her boss' son, who doesn't seem to know she even exists. Tired of waiting for the time to be right, she takes advantage of her boss' generous offer for a little weekend getaway to thank her for helping out with a difficult business deal.

Former NFL superstar Lucas Montgomery is still suffering from a career-ending injury. His self-imposed exile from life is exactly what he wants - a sanctuary where there's no chance for disappointment or distractions, and that's exactly the way he likes it. While his family has been patiently waiting for Lucas to come around and embrace life once again, they don't realize that it wasn't just his career that was lost but his sense of identity. Lucas thinks everything is fine until sweet, sexy, and completely off-limits Emma Taylor comes crashing into his carefully constructed world one snowy weekend and turns his entire life upside down.

Good story, horrible narration

I loved the story. - sweet with just the right amount of conflict. However, the narrator almost killed it for me. There wasn’t much change in his tone. He was so rushed and urgent throughout the entire book, as if every line was a climactic scene.
If read by someone else, it would have been an excellent purchase.

Narrator is not good

I don’t know what it is but I just could not stand the narrator. He talked so rushed and loud at time. I slowed the narration down and it was too slow for me. I don’t know maybe it was the fact that a man was reading the book too. Women can sesquicentennial their voices to sound like a mans decently but a man cannot do the same for a woman’s voice.

Great story

I really love the story. It's a great happily ever after. Don't care for the narration so much.

Awful narrator

He had no ability to calm and relax I really felt he did this author and injustice. His emotions were totally off from the writing. I don’t think it meant to be so harsh all the time. I probably will not continue the series. Too bad.

Narration made it hard to finish

I will be buy the others in the series BUT NOT on audible!! This narrator is awful and by the end I was just annoyed. His tone and demeanor was a mix of anger and frustration he never soften or relaxed even when the writer said the characters relaxed. He was only believable during an argument. I just kept thinking “calm down”

OK read and barely OK narration..



Emma was in love with the boss’s son, Lucas. But Lucas was so busy with his pity-parties that he didn’t seem to notice her. But Lucas’s father noticed how Emma looked at his son and how often Lucas smiled when he thanked Emma for anything. So, the matchmaking began. And the matchmaking was sweet BUT Lucas was such an jerk through the entire book that he was really hard to like.

He thought that just because of an injury that cost him his football career that he had to close himself off from the world, that that Lucas Montgomery was dead, so he was going to spend the rest of his life alone in the mountains. Without football he was nothing. Jeez, how stupid.

And the way he treated Emma was lousy. She should have dumped his rear-end. His self-pity got to be a little much, really.

Overall, the story was decent and the players were nice, except for Lucas.

There was desire in the story but all sex was fade-to-black and there was a small amount of swearing.

As to the narrator: I don’t know if I’d call him “frantic,” as another reviewer called the narration, but Kevin Collins did give the impression that he was in a hurry. There was no hesitation after a period or before a paragraph. All the words seemed to be a run-on sentence and there were not very many emotions so I really didn’t care how the voices were since everything else was so bad. I don’t think I would care to listen to Kevin T. Collins again.

too frantic

felt like the narator was in a hurry to get the story finished and it was read frantically. The story it self was okay but it felt lacking. Things just seemed like they were set in 60's and the characters were too snappy.
