Publisher's Summary

Confirmed bachelor Vince Marino wants nothing more than to win the Clover Park Library project and earn partner in his father's construction company. But a last-minute bid by Sophia Capello, the jaw-dropping daughter of his father's lifelong rival, throws Vince out of the running.
Sophia has to get Capello Construction back on track after her father left them near bankruptcy. Except she's way out of her league in the construction world, which is why she takes a big risk and proposes a partnership with the hotheaded and handsome Vince. After she wins the project.
Vince's cockiness combined with Sophia's determination forges an alliance filled with explosive and tempting tension. But what will happen when Vince, who doesn't believe in mixing business with pleasure, discovers Sophia has never truly experienced passion? Will he stick to his rule and protect everything he's worked so hard for? Or will he find the temptation of showing Sophia what she's been missing too much?

Highly entertaining!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I absolutely would recommend this audiobook to my friends because listening to them makes me feel like I'm right in the middle of the action standing right next to these delightfully obstinacy but lovable characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really enjoyed getting to know more about Vince. At first he appears to be an alley cat without many morals and while he always satisfies his women in the bedroom, he's clueless about what they need outside of the bedroom. Yet, underneath all of that bravado is a kind hearted teddy bear who takes his responsibilities and his relationships very seriously and he works hard to make his father proud of him and to be everything that Sophia says she needs in a man.

What does Charles Lawrence bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I absolutely adore Charles Lawrence's narration because he perfectly captures the essence of the characters and he seamlessly switches back and forth between Vince's booming macho male voice and Sophia's feminine and spunky voice in a way that often makes me forget he's the solo narrator. And I have to admit that when it comes to the intimate scenes in the book his voice has a wonderful effect on me. I swooned every time "Vince" growled Sophia's name!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes! When Vince finally came clean with Sophia about where he was going and what he was doing when he kept leaving her bed in the wee hours of every Saturday morning. He's a very compassionate and caring man beneath that beautifully muscled sexy lumberjack body! I was also very moved when he finally let Sophia see his confusion and regret about his past behavior with both his mother and stepmother.

Any additional comments?

The union of Kylie Gilmore's Clover Park romantic comedies and Charles Lawrence's amazing vocal talents is amazing and if you haven't heard it for yourself you have no idea how much fun you're missing.

Vince and Sophia

Any additional comments?

The sixth book in the Clover Park series is just as good as the rest! I am addicted to this series! Vince is a gruff, player. Sophia is a beautiful, smart woman. They meet when they are both representing their fathers' companies. They are a little like Romeo and Juliet because their fathers hate each other and own competing companies. Despite this Vince and Sophia can't fight their attraction to each other. I loved how Vince changed his playboy ways and you got to see his soft interior when it came to Sophia! I loved how strong a Sophia was! They made an amazing couple! I would definitely recommend this book!!
