The first book in the USA Today best-selling series from Erin Nicholas!
Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media, and piss off the vice president of the United States all before breakfast. But he's not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.
Then he meets the new girl in town.
Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high-stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.
Until Mason Riley bids $400 just to dance with her.
Mason sure doesn't look - or kiss - like a genius scientist geek. In fact he makes Adrianne's heart pound like nothing she's ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple, boring life.
Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.
Warning: Listen only if you don't mind some naughty words, sexy times described in great detail, humor, small-town quirkiness, meddling best friends, mud in the kitchen, references to bisexuality - oh, and talk about candy...and that's not a euphemism for anything...actual candy.
"Kate Udall's narration conveys the sexual tension in this story about a science genius who finds the girl of his dreams at his high school reunion. Udall's varied voices and pacing capture the diverse characters of the town of Sapphire Falls, Nebraska. The resonance of Udall's voice deftly captures Mason Riley's confidence as he returns to his hometown 11 years after making his fortune. There he finds that the people who once regarded him as a geek now need his financial help to save their tiny town. While Udall brings a bit too much melodrama to Adrian's voice, her tone communicates her determined pursuit of Mason. Some extended pauses break up the narrative flow slightly but also give additional steaminess to Mason and Adrian's moments of passion." (AudioFile Magazine)

Getting Out of Hand by Erin Nicholas
I love this book. That puts it up near the top.
Any of the other Sapphire Falls books. All are excellent reads.
I think Ms, Udall's performance of Dr. Lauren Davis was best. Her words seem to be the most enunciated with Lauren's character.
I officially have a new book boyfriend! Mason Riley, the hero in GETTING OUT OF HAND, the first book in Erin Nicholas's wonderful new series Sapphire Falls, is the new love of my life! Well, at least in my fantasies he is. The man is a genius who graduated two years early in high school, but got no respect from his classmates in Sapphire Falls. Instead they wrote him off as a nerd who didn't fit in. He crushed on Hailey, the most beautiful and popular girl in school for years only to have her humiliate him by rejecting and laughing at him in front of all her friends. They say the best revenge is to live a wonderful life and he certainly has! He moved away for college where with the help of his best friend, Lauren, he learned to dress stylishly, pumped up his body at the gym, and learned how to fit in at social settings. Now the man is a renowned scientist who meets with the President of the United States, implements ground breaking projects to help save third world countries, dates beautiful women, and has more money than the other four most successful men in his class combined. Oh, and did I mention he's used his scientific mind to study and learn how to best please women sexually? So a rich, handsome, kind, philanthropic, genius who dresses well, and has mad skills in the bedroom and is a bit of a dirty talker. Mine!!
Adrianne Scott didn't grow up in Sapphire Falls like most the townsfolk, but she was Hailey's friend in college. After a health scare she decided to walk away from her fast-paced, crazy, competitive, stress filled life working for her family's international business based in Chicago. She takes the low-key job as assistant to Hailey who is now the Mayor in Sapphire Falls. She may have only lived in town for three years, but she loves her quiet, slow-paced, peaceful life and all her new friends. She's a smart, beautiful, kind, giving woman who has all the men crushing on her to the point there's an ongoing bet as to who will get to kiss her first. But she hasn't been willing to risk her heart, so she hasn't dated any of them.
Hailey's determined to put herself in the Sapphire Falls history books by developing a shopping center that will bring growth and boost revenues for the townsfolk. She wants to build on land Mason owns so she invites him to town hoping to capitalize on the crush he'd had on her and talk him into donating the land along with about a hundred grand to get the project off the ground. When Adrianne researches Mason she becomes fascinated with his accomplishments, not to mention his good looks, and can't wait to meet the man himself. When Mason does come back to town after eleven years, it's not to help the town or the woman who spurned him. It's to thumb his nose up at Hailey and her project in person. However, the minute he sees Adrianne he can hardly think of anything else, including his revenge. The attraction is mutual. Adrianne is equally smitten with the sexy scientist. She finds herself forgoing all her rules to keep her heart safe and is instead peeling off her clothes for him at every opportunity. Their romance is quick, hot & heavy, eye-opening and life-changing for each of them. They are perfect for each other and it was wonderful to read their love story.
Sapphire Falls comes with a cast of adorable, quirky, sassy, enchanting characters that round out this story in such an enjoyable way. Erin writes so splendidly I felt right in the middle of what was happening as if I was there laughing and plotting along instead of merely reading about it. The ending was marvelous. A true romantic, I love nothing better than a great HEA ending. Getting Out of Hand delivers in a sigh-worthy way, leaving me wishing for more. I can't wait for the second book in the series, Getting Worked Up, and more fun with the people in Sapphire Falls. 5 stars
~Audio version brings a different slant to this wonderful book. Somehow the sass and the sexiness are even better coming from the voice of the narrator. 4 stars on the narration
Great love story.
