I've been wanting to try a Carly Phillips story for some time now, and glad I took a chance with this one. While the plot wasn't the most original, and this is more of an instant love story, the delivery made it a great listen! It's hot, sexy, and the authors did a great job developing the chemistry and attraction between the H/h. You could feel the steam, and the sex scenes had the right amount of details without being over the top.
Samantha may have been living the life of luxury under her parent's rule, but she wasn't going to let her father coerce her into marrying a man she didn't love. Determined to follow her dreams, and make it own her own, she leaves under the threat of being cut off from her parent's money. She finds herself drinking her problems away at a bar where she meets the sexy, hot bar owner, Clay. At closing time, Samantha finds herself with no place to go, and thanks to her credit card being declined, she can't even pay the bar tab. Clay's a Saint, and takes pity on her, and allows her to crash at his apartment in the back of the bar. There's an instant connection, and chemistry between them, and against his better judgment, Clay gives Samantha a job, and allows her to stay with him until she can save enough money to find her own place. He's sure this rich girl won't last one night working at the bar, but she's a lot tougher than what he gives her credit for. Clay also thinks he's all wrong for Samantha, and finds it hard to keep his hands to himself, especially when she acts all confident, and makes the advancements. He gives it hard, fast, and dirty, and that's just how she likes it! Just when things are going good, Clay's past comes crashing in.
Sophie did a great job the the narration; however, her female characters were much better than her male characters. It wasn't bad enough to turn me off from listening to more audios narrated by Sophie, but I do feel having dual m/f narrators would have made the narration perfect.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story! The ending was a little rushed, and the conflict was to easily resolved. The angst and drama was on the milder side, but it's the steamy, hot sex scenes, and romance that drives this story. I'm definitely going to wish list more audios by these authors.

This book is an erotic romance.
I have to admit this book was well written, but not my kind of story line, sorry.
Samantha has lived the rich and wealthy life style but it was not her desire to be a pon in her family's game. She when she is given a choice to marry for business, she take the opportunity to live her dream of being free and finding herself, instead she finds love. How to convince a man who has never known love before that what they has is forever.
Clay did not grow up like a normal family, his mother was a drug addict and prostitute since the moment he was born. It was always his responsibility to take charge and provide. He lived a poor life but keeping his brothers under one roof was his only goal. Until a man gave him a chance and he passed it along, giving back but not his heart. Until a rich girl lost comes into his bar, it will change him forever.
