So I love a sexy funny romance as much as anyone- I am no snob and enjoy Dannika Dark, Christina Lauren, etc. I like fun and entertaining books while I am working out. So when I saw this book and how many amazing reviews it had, I had to buy it!
But I absolutely hated it and just returned it. The ENTIRE book plays out in Rachel's head, and what a tedious and boring place that is to be. Basically it is one long drawn out lusting-over-saint diatribe. There is nothing about Rachel - at all- that is likable. Good God girl, get it together.
Good books need action- tension- and a bit of brains to hold the whole thing together. This book was an absolutely painful gush fest over a hot and rich dude- told by a woman who calls herself a "slut" for masturbating! In a book called Manwhore! A woman who gets up to wash her hands afterwards. If it had been a physical book I would have thrown it across the room.
So basically the whole book is one long internal dialogue about a super hot guy, as told by a woman who seems to lack a few too many brain cells to care about. Even though I love my books guilty pleasures, this one was dull and excruciating.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would not recommend this book because it's a boring, disappointing cliffhanger. I'm returning this book post haste b/c I have no doubts that the ensuing books could have been combined too make 1good book.
What could Katy Evans have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
This book could've been more enjoyable w/o the repetitive, predictable inter-monologue, sure to be found in book 2. Thus proving, cliffhanger unnecessary.

Katie Evans did it again. This was a great start to the series. As always she followed her trademark way of writing and kept my interest from start to finish.
Not once I felt bored listening to this book. It was so good I didn't want to be bothered while listening. This is one of those books you are dreading that it's going to end and you are going to be left wanting more and you although want to listen to the story you want to prolong it as much as possible.
If you are thinking should I buy this? Should I spend the money on this? Are you in between this and another title?Buy this book. You're not going to regret listening to this. If you have already bought Katie Evans books before you know what I'm talking about and if not then you are about to get a roller coaster of emotions. She has a way with words, she has a way of making you part of the story, and you forget where you are and the only thing you are interested in is to know what is going to happen next.
The narrator was so suitable for this book. Grace Grant is an amazing narrator, she has a beautiful voice, she brings a lot of emotions into her reading. She is captivating and she completes this book.
The only downsize of this book is the major cliffhanger at the end and the fact that the sequence is not yet out, it becomes very frustrating waiting. If you're not into unfinished stories I suggest you wait for the entire series to come out and then buy all of them together but by all means, this is a GREAT book!!!!

I loved the book and than again I didn't. The didn't bit is the emotions rolling of Racheal, by the end of the book I felt like I was drowning in the god damn pool of soppy emotions. While I was listening to it I was wishing it would hurry up and move on, if I was reading the book, I would have skipped a few pages towards the end for sure. If you love books where they dissect very little feeling and sloppy emotion than you will love this one. Not sure if I can handle listening to the next one, I want to hear the rest of the story I enjoyed but I can see Racheal being a melting mess of emotions. Racheal shows straight but than again she doesn't. Not sure if I want to spend the money.
Narration was very good, the written word was well placed, I just felt like I was drowning towards the end of the story
