Publisher's Summary

My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the roller-coaster of emotions that flood over me when I'm near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It's the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She's not only my assistant, but she's half my age. She gets under my skin and irritates the shit out of me, yet one smile, one laugh, and I'm melting into a puddle at her feet. Falling in love with her is a bad idea, a very bad idea, because she just may be the one person who breaks my heart for good this time.
Nico is my boss. He's demanding, bitter, brooding, and a downright bully at times. But, all that doesn't deter me from him at all. I can see the kindness and compassion in his eyes. I know the secret he's keeping from everyone and why he's so guarded with his heart. I don't care about his secret, nor do I care that he's twice my age. What matters is the undeniable attraction we feel for each other. If only he can just let go of the past and see what's right in front of him.
Author's note: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Everything I want in a romance book 💕💕

Nico lost his wife 3 year's ago and is still feeling the effects of the loss & confliction over choices she made during their marriage.As a result Nico is a insomniac workaholic with a short fuse. When Nicco's business partner and bestfriend of the last 30 year's Giovanni hires a new assist for him he meets his match in Phoenix.
Phoenix is a good hearted sassy little spitfire with sex appeal. Never afraid to throw out sarcastic witty banter. Phoenix is driving Nico crazy in more than one way lol. Nico's attraction to Phoenix in combination with her ability to put him in his place makes her like no other woman he's met before. When these two fall for each other, they fall hard. This doesn't mean they won't face obstacles that could destroy them though.

Filled with great supporting characters, humor, and plenty of heart this beautiful Italian family is hard not to fall in love with.
The drama, suspense, action, and sexy heated bedroom scenes made one very entertaining listen. I also loved the way Nicole wrapped everything up at the end.
Kai & Wenn did an amazing job!! These two definitely fall into my favorite narrators category. Both of them give such great performances you forget their reading a book. I was given this book by the author in exchange for my honest review. I'm glad I had the pleasure of listening. I highly recommend spending the credit. After listening to a few Nicole Garcia book's I think this is her best work yet.

Great Love Story, with good build up

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a good, hot, steamy story and great build up for the characters.

When Phe meets Nico, there is an automatic, but guarded attraction. Not only is Nico Phe's boss, but also quite a bit older that she is.

Nico has been hurt in past, and was not ready to find love, but couldn't help himself when meeting Phe.

As the story progresses, with the other characters involved, including Nico's father and grand mother, of course, misunderstandings ensue, resulting in mistrust and anger. (altho, if one would stop talking for 2 minutes, they would find out what was actually going on :) ).

Over all, very good performances from Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross and good story of love conquering all.
