Some bets were made to be lost.
Kate Lamonica isn't Koti James' type. Too small. Too dark. And heaps too much work. So it's an easy bet that he can be her friend for six weeks without making a move on her, no matter what his mates would have said.
Kate can't believe she's made the bet at all. New Zealand had seemed like the perfect escape from the stalker who'd threatened first her peace of mind and then her life. She certainly doesn't need any more trouble. Why on earth has she agreed to spend time with a Maori rugby player who's far too handsome and charming for his own good - and knows it?
But there's more than one game Koti's good at playing....
Note: This romance, like New Zealand, contains a bit of steam. If that isn't your cuppa, you may want to visit another country...er, audiobook.

ANOTHER FANTASTIC KIWI / RUGBY LOVE STORY
- MJG "Pacific Northwest Gardener"
Hot rugby player in NZ: yes please!
Claire Bocking, as always, fantastic narrator. I like the story. I like how Kate is tough. The Waitomo Cave part was great (makes me want to go there). Great characters development. You never have to ask "what was he/she thinking?!" because she goes in-depth with the characters. I like how we see the characters from the first book and how that relationship is going, but it's still a good book if you didn't read the first one (but you should get the first one because it's good, too).
I really love how she changes her voice for the female characters. They are all so distinct and you can pick up the differences. She's a really talented voice actor. When there is yelling, Claire Bocking yells and it's startling, but in a way that's extremely effective and makes for a great performance. When there is sniffling or coughing, instead of just reading "she coughed," she actually makes the noises and I really appreciate that. Whoever cast her clearly knew what they were doing because I can't say enough good things about her.
Whenever Kate talked about her fears with her stalker, I really felt the emotion, in the writing and in listening to the narration.
I bought this book the hour it became available, at full price, and it was worth it. I've also listened to this book at least 5 times, I enjoy it that much. I can't wait for more NZ books to come out and hearing Claire Bocking narrate some more.
