Publisher's Summary

Some people call River Andrews a modern-day Cinderella. She's a rags-to-riches story: a girl from a trailer park who becomes a Hollywood starlet. And she's about to get her happily ever after. That is, until she walks into her house three hours before her wedding to find her rock star fiancé cheating on her with her sister, while cameras film the whole sordid affair.
River picks up her skirts and runs away. She hitches a ride and finds herself in the arms of Elias Saint, who's damaged beyond repair, dirty, and demanding. But once he touches her, she can't walk away.

Good story - voice doesn't fit

The story is good and quirky. A few twists here and some misunderstandings there and voila, another great story line by Paige!
However- this book was performed in a rather unfortunate way. The reader has a great voice and reads steady and comfortable, but the voice just doesn't fit. The book has male and female view points which I can barely tell apart due to the voice being exactly the same ( not even a try to make the voice deeper) dialogues between the couple are hard to follow and - this might just be me- listening to a granny type voice reading erotic scenes out loud isn't really hot, but rather uncomfortable.

IMO, this story suffered from two major flaws.... the narration and the constant " he said, she said, blah blah said" and then the various annoying words instead of 'said' like asked, replied, I answered.... well you get the drift. I'm sure it would have made for a much better written experience.

River and Elias both had their demons but that didn't stop the sexual chemistry, Alpha attitude and instant hot sex which came before all else.... including names I think. River was running away and Elias was returning to, however they both found each other despite secrets, paparazzi and bad childhoods. Until River overheard something, jumped to conclusions and ran. There was a secondary story of a small town being eaten up by developers, suspicious deaths and intrigue. Elias had brothers (the Saint brothers) who got together and have decided to dig deeper so the secondary storyline will continue.

I didn't really feel the romance between River and Elias and I thought he would have a little bit of insecurities and doubts about having sex for the first time after loosing part of his leg and having bad scars.... but nope not a one which would have made him more vulnerable and more likeable. Story jumped around a bit - like all of a sudden she's got more clothes and a fake I.D. and cards.

Worth a credit? Nope, far too many flaws for me and it sadly suffered for only being just over 6 hours.... why Authors can't spend a little more time to give us a more in-depth listen is such a shame.
