I really don't like giving negative reviews, and others may perhaps find this listen good, but unfortunately I didn't and for a few reasons - Ash was handsome and toned but he was such a douche bag as a main man. A beautiful package that was obnoxious, arrogant, cocky and conceited on the inside with comments like "kissing is juvenile and the least arousing thing", "kids are like leeches", "thanks I look good in everything", "opinions are irrelevant to me" and when Alessandra said I love you he says "yeah I get that a lot"... oh I could go on and on quoting the man-whore. When things got hot between him and Alessandra he didn't fool around which was a plus and his whole attitude towards girlfriends, marriage, love and commitment may have changed towards the end.... but by this time I was done. I really tried but sadly, by the half-way mark, I knew I couldn't stand to hear anymore.
There was also random silences between sentences or scenes, the narrator (or tech team) duplicated words quite a few times and the female narrator was positively awful with monotone voices from characters who all sounded the same. It would have been better if the male narrator had narrated the whole book because he was good... and the 3 stars on Performance is solely for him. This suffered, as I did, because of the poor narration and so it may be better read.... anyway arrogant man-whore needs and meets vulnerable recently hurt Escort, they become friends - with lots of sex, then a bit of drama followed by misunderstandings and angst. Dual POV's, HEA with no cliffhanger and it's a standalone listen.
Worth a credit? IMO, shallow plot, lying and cheating to parents, tech problems, dislikable characters and one awful narrator so, for me, the answer would be a definite NO..... and I'm asking for my credit back right now.

I only want to offer constructive criticism for the female narrator because I can't do any better...
the narration felt rushed with limited breaths or pauses or emotion. I had difficulty telling the difference between when one character stopped talking and when another began. also, there were a lot of "whoops, pause, repeat the last line again" moments.
