No, no, a thousand times no. I finished reading this book holding on to hope that Bobbi would stand up to Gabe but it really never happened. Gabe and Bobbi are best friends. Bobbi has been in love with Gabe for years. Bobbi gets drunk at a party and kissed and touched him as only a lover would. The morning after she is ashamed and prays that her friendship with Gabe hasn't been damaged. Of course, Gabe started lusting after his best friend and couldn't get her out of his mind.
What's his solution? "Hey Bobbi, why don't we have sex whenever we have the itch, tell no one about it, get it out of our system and once we're done we can go back to being friends?" Bobbi is heartbroken, Gabe is not in love with her but at least wants to have sex with her. What's a girl to do? Well, if you have no self-esteem at all, are a coward and thinks settling is better than nothing, you'd become Gabe's lover and best kept secret.
Fourteen chapters of Bobbi content with crumbs while Gabe behaved like a monumental jerk. He would hurt her over and over again with his comments, his dismissive attitude about her job and appearance and Bobbi just took it while making herself available.
If Bobbi had thought first, Gabe isn't her best friend, he thinks of her as a tomboy, doesn't like the fact that she is a mechanic and cares only about his needs; second, if she had slapped him hard and heartbroken as she was moved on with her life and showed Gabe what he was missing, I would have respect for her."He is so gorgeous, I'm nothing like the women he dates and I love him and this is my only chance to at least have sex with him until he gets bored. I will treasure the memories forever!" I disliked her so much!
And Gabe, what an @#$!, what a selfish, immature piece of s@#$! The CEO of a company worth million of dollars and he writes childish poems and sends hundreds of flowers after he shattered Bobbi's heart? He missed the point, again.
One out of three, ain't so bad, I guess. I hope the next book takes away the bitter taste in my mouth after reading this one.
As for the narrator? Not the greatest, I still have to go back and listen again to a few phrases. Her accent is difficult to understand at times but then again, I'm not British.

I'm not a writer nor have I ever attempt to write a book so on that note. This book was predictable and as always the heroine was weak for the hero. The reptiles are always week because they need a little thing called LOVE from the HEROS. Thats my 2 cents for now.

Gabe was just oblivious, kind of sweet in a way, lovely sweet story.
I recommend others in the series too.
I don't listen to them back to back as they can be a bit similar but the are great to intersperse with other books.
