This was a good easy-going listen that had a bit of everything... light humor, angst between siblings, passion and romance between old friends, drama as the heroine is conflicted and in turmoil with her emotions which results in a traumatic event and there's some dirty talk which leads to some lack lustre sex.
It was all enjoyable and entertaining but I don't think I connected with the heroine because there was no pleasing her and her constant disapproval of what Jack (the sexy hero) and Slade (her brother) were doing got boring. There were good one liners and playful banter, Jack and Slade were both likeable characters and a really dynamic one that stood out was Drogo Jack's unsociable but very funny tiny little dog. But this is more an anti MMA listen than the norm.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's an ok narrator. This wasn't what I was expecting, no bad boys, however it was an enjoyable listen so I guess it's creditworthy.

Jack and Chrissy have known each other pretty much their entire lives. Jack is the best friend of Chrissy's brother Slade (seriously?) and next door neighbor. Chrissy however has been gone from her small home town in Florida for 11 years going to college, medical school and then traveling with organizations similar to Doctors without Borders, she has gone to many many out of the way places all over the world. She is now 29 years old and returns home to bail her idiot brother out of jail. She has a seriously crappy day, gets pulled over by Jack and accidentally punches him in the nuts. So, basically the book starts out really funny. There are times of good humor, but it isn't that funny throughout.
Jack has an instant reaction to Chrissy once he realizes it is her. He is protective over her and always has been. There are some old hurts that eventually get put to rest between Jack and Chrissy and Chrissy and her brother Slade. Slade is also an MMA fighter but is making quite a few poor/dangerous choices at present to Chrissy stays on to help sort him out. Chrissy is reluctant and unsure of Jack's true intentions. Jack is bossy, hot, alpha and yet kind, sweet and only has her best interest at heart.
There are parts of this book i found a bit rushed and lacking. The story was fine, not a new concept, not a bad story but not great. It is told from both POV's which is always a plus. Chrissy is a bit head strong sometimes to her detriment.
This is generally a light read, nothing HUGE and horrible, there are some past secrets revealed that deal with domestic violence but nothing horribly graphic. Also a current time issue with secondary characters.
There was an epilogue but not a great one. A nice read, no major issues, just didn't have that special something to make it a great.

I chose this as it was on my recommended list. Not an author that I had heard of but I liked the blurb. Must say a pretty good story that did not have any dull bits. Chrissy is likeable enough & Jack is delicious. A bit corny at times but not cringe worthy: more like just plain sweet. Must say though that Chrissy certainly didn't act like any doctor I have ever worked with & why oh why are all the females in these books drop dead gorgeous. There must be a place out there in bookland that real women inhabit!
Well read & not annoying. Worth listening to.
