Charlotte (aka Charlie) needs to disappear quickly and she does it in New Orleans and now with a new look, a new job and a new identity she has finally found her true self working in a Tattoo Shop. One year in and late one night a Bachelor Party come staggering in and that's when she meets the gorgeous Simon. Simon is instantly captivated by the tattooed, dark haired beauty with colored streaks in her hair but is it the booze clouding his mind. So he returns the next day to find out that she was even more breathtaking but he can't get her to say yes to a date..... until persistency, a lack of Charlie's willpower and a terrible accident brings them together. But Charlie has secrets that could harm Simon's political career, she's a closed book and sooner or later her past is going to catch up with her and it's just a case of when and at what price.
I usually go for bad boys and Simon is anything but that, he's thoughtful, kind, caring, understanding and doesn't pressurise Charlie for answers and I loved him for that. It was Charlie who was keeping secrets and, as usual, they're kept too long with devastating results. There's no surprises for the listener as Charlie's past life is told from the start but it's a lovely romance that unfolds between two likeable characters who deserve each other. There's romantic times, sexy times and heartbreaking confusing times and the worst enemy is Charlie's self doubt..... well that and her family and the F.B.I.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, good narration and a story that I couldn't wait to get back to so, IMO, that all makes for a nice creditworthy listen.

Narrators- female voice is good. Male voice was distracting. He doesn't match the image. His voice makes u think of a smaller dude. U picture this tall hunk out of the navy & then his voice comes out & my picture morphs lol ... like Hugh Jackson to Michael j fox..
Other then that it was ok.
Story- it was ok. Not nail biting or I can't put the book down. Predictable yet feel good. I wouldn't spend a credit on it tho I would wait for a discount.

Although I read book 6 in this series first (it was awesome, hence starting from the beginning), it did not take away from my enjoyment of the first book. This book follows bad girl (running away from the law) Charlie and good boy (running for Senator) Simon as they try to navigate a relationship based based on non truths. I loved the twist on the bad boy image (bad girl Charlie for a change). The story, told in dual POV, was fast paced and kept me entertained throughout the whole book. I'm definitely starting book 2 in the very near future because I need more of this complex, highly entertaining group.
Enjoyed this book and the reading. The storyline was good. Loved the voices - felt the emotion.
Good performance by both, the story was predictable, yet still a good listen.
Enjoyed the independent, strong female lead. 3.5 stars
