Publisher's Summary

I didn't plan on him...or for him.
I didn't plan on anything that had to do with Cal Donovan from Boston.
Meeting him was a complete and utter surprise, taking me completely off guard. I met new people every single day in my line of work, and none of them affected me. Isn't that just the way of things? You could meet a thousand people, and they'd all mean nothing to you, but then you'd meet that one and they suddenly meant everything.
I was a self-professed workaholic. When did making yourself your number-one priority become such a horrible thing? I wasn't entirely sure, but I learned fairly quickly after my last breakup that men don't like being second on a woman's priority list. And they seemed to be intimidated by a motivated female, calling me things like hard to handle, challenging, and difficult.
Being single seemed to work best for me, and I didn't plan on changing my relationship status anytime soon.
But then I met Cal.
And he f***ing ruined everything.

Really enjoyed this book

I was kind of skeptical about this book because another book by the author that people loved I kind of hated. I didn't even finish that series, but I this for a deal so it was a win win. I really liked this book. It was a bit of insta-love but they didn't immediately jump and bed so it was cool. And I can understand meeting someone and just really vibing with them from the start so it really wasn't love but more like insta-like. Plus they had a long distance relationship and got to really know each other from that so I had no issue with it. I like how both characters were not ready for love but it came to them when they least expected. The long distance thing worked for them since they both put work first and didn't really have time for a relationship. That's pretty much what brought them together. I also like how it was the mystery of will they or wont they since they lived on opposite sides of the country and neither were willing to move but they had such a strong pull to each other.

One thing I didn't like was after a certain thing happened the heroine had too much inner dialogue. She just kept rethinking the same thing over and over again for like 2-3 whole chapters. That got annoying especially in listening to the audio. I think the resolution to the conflict was kind of sudden but there was drastic measure taken to make amends so I was ok with the resolution. 3 stars for the story.

I really loved listening to the audio book of this story. Not saying that it would have been worse reading it but the audio book kept me really engaged and it usually takes me a while to listen to audio books but I listened to this straight through pretty much. I love Erin Mallon as a narrator and this was my first book with Jason Clarke but he did a really good job. 5 stars for narration.

This book was absolutely terrible! I kept waiting for it to get better based on the reviews but it was so bland and boring. The narrator's voices were very one dimensional and monotone which made the story even worse. The intake of breath after each sentence that Erin Mallon did became increasingly annoying, and I mean EVERY sentence. The woman in the story claimed to be a strong, independent, work driven woman then she turned into a desperate psychotic woman in a relationship with issues. Do not waste your time or money.
