So, I just finished Duke of Desire yesterday, where the hero had a horrible scar across his face, and decided to read this. AND guess what? The heroine has a scar across her face! AND she was described as “plain” and the hero was beyond belief beautiful and in love with her. Seriously? As if that is ever going to happen. When are authors going to make both the heroine and hero plain or too plump or unattractive so the story makes more sense. (Not that I would read a book like that.)
Anyway, this was about Andy, who was arrested for drunk driving when he hit Grey, from the first book Accidently Hers. Andy managed to get his job back at the ski resort on a probationary period then some chick lied about him and he was fired, again. Nikki, who was almost his girlfriend didn’t really believe Andy when he defended himself so Andy dumped her… For a little while, anyway.
It was nice to see what happened to Andy but he deserved better than Nikki.
There was one sex scene but there was not a shred of attraction, want, lust, nothing whatsoever. Publishers tell authors that sex sells so 95% of them just throw a sex scene in and call it good. Personally, I’d rather have some kind of sexual tension throughout the book than to have one stupid sex scene.
The F-bomb was used 1 time.
As to the narrator: The best part of the entire was Kate Rudd’s narration. She does wonderful voices and great emotions.

I have really enjoyed this series but was disappointed that this story was so short. I felt cheated of a credit. Oh well!
I didn't actually realise this was a short story (less than 4 hours compared to most of Jamie Beck's books that tend to be around 10 hours). I was rather disappointed with this offering from the Sterling Cannon series. It passed the time okay but not much actually happened and I didn't feel the spark between the characters as much as I normally do with Beck's books. I wish she had made the effort to write a full length story- this felt far too much like a filler book (and a bit of a disappointing use of a credit). Kate Rudd's narration is passable. She does fine with the females but all her male voices sound the same.
