I love a good story of a changed man and this story does not disappoint. My only disappointment was I wished I would have read the Billionaire Series first because you really get a first-hand look in Scoring the Billionaire on how Nick borderlines on being a deadbeat dad. By listening to Dr. Nero first, you really don't get the full picture of the emotional damage he caused to Winnie and Lexi.
In going back to the book Scoring a Billionaire, Nick is described by his ex-girlfriend as physically and emotionally abandoning his daughter Lexi and her mom, Winnie by moving out of state and putting his career first. He actually does not meet his daughter until she is four months old. Winnie's description almost made me wonder how Nick could ever redeem himself in the eyes of his daughter and his ex-lover. Had I read the series in order, I think I might have been more critical of Nick's character at the start of Dr. Nero. Yet, the Monroe Team was smart because they started this book off by having Nick admit to the audience what an ass he has been to Winnie and his daughter, Lexi, who has high- functioning autism. They also start this book off by showing the audience that Nick is working at building a relationship with Lexi and her mom. Even though there was a little scene between Nick and Winnie in Scoring the Billionaire where Nick insinuates that he wants another chance with her, there are no signs of that in this book because In this book, Winnie is now married to Wes (the owner of a professional football franchise) and Nick has to accept that Winnie and Wes have been excellent parents to his daughter while he was focused on his career.
So where does that put our hero? Well, as a single dad who puts his daughter before his career along with avoiding any form of dating with the exception of a few hook-ups over the years. Enter Charlotte, a medical head-hunter who tries to convince Nick to move back to California and accept another job for more money and prestige. Before long, Charlotte discovers that convincing Nick to take the job will be nearly impossible. Fortunately, for Charlette, she always has Plan B up her sleeve. So while Charlette is working on Plan B, Nick somehow drags Charlotte into the reality TV show that he has agreed to be a part of. This is where the fun begins and there are some heated love scenes that Nick and Charlette get caught up in that will make you swoon and giggle.
This book was the story to wrap up both series (The Billionaire & Doctor) because it connects all the characters from both series. Yet, I found Nick and Charlette's story a little flat because it lacked the humor and passion of some of the other books. Don't get me wrong, it is a great audio and story. I love Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell as Nick and Charlette. Plus, both narrators do an excellent job narrating the delightful Lexi, who helps make this story so heartwarming. Overall, 4 to 4 1/2 stars.

Book was good but the first 2 in the series had more passion and excitement.
