Publisher's Summary

A woman who knows that the only guy she ever loved was a cheater and a slimeball, but hates the idea of being the last one of her friends to be single.
A man who spent years chasing the beauty queen and always coming in second, takes a bet from his friends for a little action. Little does he know that when they up the ante, they also get to pick the girl.
That's when Miss Pinkhaired Girl suddenly turns into Miss Blue Eyes....
Flynn Davis had spent years waiting on Courtney to give up the chase for the crown and settle down to married life and babies. When they broke up, he thought maybe he'd missed his chance to have the family he always wanted, regardless of how hard his friends, Drew and Allen, tried to hook him up.
Chloe Howard had her heart broken at Moody's Bar when she discovered her boyfriend cheating on her. She left with tears, he left with a beer in his face. Now, at 29, she's convinced the only males that give her any attention are her patients and they can't talk back.
A bachelorette party brings her to Moody's Bar once again. A guys' night out brings Flynn. Because of a bet, they're matched up whether they want to be or not, despite how hard they fight it. If only she could remember what happened last night.

Having listened to this combo of writer and narrator before, I was glad to get a chance to again...and this little story did not disappoint me! It is a quick and well written romance tale, of 2 people coming together by chance, and falling in love...Chloe and Flynn are both coming off bad relationships and have a chance drunken meeting that turns into forever....I loved it...well worth a listen!!!

St.Claire's Books Will Now Be On My Wish List

Chloe Howard's only serious relationship ended when she caught her ex cheating on her at the local bar. Flynn Davis thought his beauty queen was ready to move on to marriage. She wasn't, she left him for California -her parting words, 'she never had loved him.'

In the opening we find Chloe is a veterinarian. She is called to care for one of her regular customers horses. While there she sees several men that she doesn't recognize. She thinks nothing of it. She arrives home to a message that her friends are throwing a bachelorette party AT the same bar she had been humiliated before. But because she is a good friend AND with some liquid courage she gets dressed up to go

Flynn and his friends are hoping for a regular guys night out with a side bet. Since Flynn hasn't been on a date, or in any sort of relationship, for so long, they challenge him to bed a woman that they pick out. Of course, it is a drunk Chloe…

This is a fun romance book. It is relatively short so I didn't expect there to be much depth. The story line seems natural and flows well. There is a good amount of hot descriptions of "intimacy."

Pamela Peters narration moved with the pace of the story. I enjoyed the performance. She is able to perform each character in a believable way. Some female narrators sound silly when they try too hard performing male characters. It becomes distracting. That is not the case with Pamela. It feels like she is telling the story and it is very natural. 4*'s

Notes: Mature themes and some strong language. Not intended for those who dislike descriptions of intimacy, but near perfect for those who do.

*I was given a copy of this book to listen to in exchange for my review.* I have gone back and forth on whether or not to try Abbie St. Clair. This gave me an opportunity to try St. Claire and I am sold. I will not hesitate to add her books to my Wish List.
