As a behavioral scientist, Professor Nicole Hathaway's work strips away the foolish mystique that surrounds the human mating dance. When her academic tome is treated as a viral "love manual" her ecstatic publisher books her to appear all over the U.S. and Europe. Worse yet, her quiet, managed life has been shattered by a series of incompetent assistants. And she's certain this Lily Smith creature isn't going to be any less a burden than the last assistant they sent her. Or the one before that. Or before that...
Lillian Linden-Smith needs this job. With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for her blood for crimes committed by her "American royalty" parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all PhD for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time.
From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she's dealing with.
It's hate at first sight in this love adventure from the author of Above Temptation, Roller Coaster and dozens of other best-selling, award-winning novels.

Kept Me Interested to the End
It's one I won't forget. I've listened to several books, and about half of them I couldn't finish. This one kept me interested and made me really look forward to my drive to/from work.
The narrator is fine and the story is good. It's not super complex and there isn't any other major plot line going on aside from the relationship between the main characters. Which I was totally fine with! One of the characters is an academic, so there were moments where the book taught me something interesting.
All I can think of is Snow Falling by Gerri Hill, but that's mostly because of the subject matter. This one developed the characters better and the writing was smarter.
The voices were well differentiated. And she was able to do a good job with the various accents and languages. And for the most part it didn't sound like she was straining to do them. I've listened to a book before where the narrator was trying to do a butch voice and it was agonizing.
There were times where the narrator was a little too into it and would laugh whimsically through some of the text (that wasn't dialogue). Someone above compared it to reading a book to a child, which it did have that sound to it here and there. Not unbearable, though. And the voices were consistent.
I laughed occasionally. There are some clever quips. There are parts of the story that made me yell at my iPod (mostly good reasons, but I won't spoil it).
This story has a LOT of buildup between the characters. If you're looking for hot and heavy action right off the bat, don't listen, But if you enjoy extensive development and seemingly unending/unconsumated sexual tension like I do, this will be a good read for you. It's a fun listen.
They travel a lot in the book, so it's a fun escape to listen to the description of the places they go.
The one thing that drove me nuts is there's a part where they get lost driving in Russia and that part of the story goes on way too long. It's about 6 hours in. You'll see.
Very nice read
Its good for what it is, a romance without pretending to be something else. It has no silly story that annoys you by being slapped over the main topic.
Having the characters working together on tour.
not really, It was bit like telling a story to small kids. Too sweet.
Please don't do it, it's sweet story, but it would be boring as a movie.
