Publisher's Summary

I'm not a philosophical kind of bloke, but I know something about luck. A childhood on the wrong side of advantage will teach you that. It's all a matter of chance. It's both your circumstances and the chances you take. So I've always been a gambler and a ladies man - they love me and I love them. Now I've found one like no other - an American, Allison Wright. When I met her, the fates were on my side, but too soon I learned the odds were against me.

No Ordinary Book or Performance! I DEMAND MORE NOW


⌂ I rarely give five stars in all categories but No Ordinary Man is definitely 5 star worthy!!

Dave Bates is a powerful, handsome, charming businessman with tons of former women girlfriends. That is his life, he has no expectations and is happy. He had a rough time growing up and as a result has extremes. He can have a terrible, vicious temper. However, whenever one of his ex-girlfriends sends a wedding invitation, he is certain to pick out something nice and expensive for her. He never speaks poorly of his past conquests and seems to maintain a friendliness with them.

One day, on a business trip he runs into the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. She is a stunning, tall redhead. He flirts with her and she banters back – he purposely throws out double entendre's, keeping her off balance and unsure how/if she should address them or ignore them.

She has been in a serious relationship with her boyfriend (also a coworker) for a long time, but Bates is so very charming. She feels a pull toward him, but a responsibility or duty toward her live in, long term relationship.

This book was an absolute treasure to listen to. I did not want it to end. While *I did receive this book book in exchange for my review, this is one of the reasons that I take the time and listen to so many books. This was an absolute gem and I would've used a credit or paid out right for it.

The narrator, Will M. Watt is brilliant!!! He has fast become one of my favorite male narrators. Watt seamlessly moves between many different accents as well as characters. He is a perfect storyteller – I did not hear narration, I was listening to hear what happened next. That is is the mark of an excellent performer. I've listened to 3 or 4 books narrated by Watt and they were all spot on!

Notes: Mature themes & strong language

Once again, I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a great, sexy romance with a gripping storyline. Fantastic! Wonderful! Brilliant! More please, now!

Heroine is far too RIGHTEOUS

Let me 1st say the heroine was too much. She was indecisive , judgemental , & indignant about absolutely everything. The Hero deserves better. He came off as desperate and needy . the herione didn't seem to reciprocate those feelings. The heroine was suppose to be in her mid 30's but came off like she just graduated college. Maybe had the author made her younger he actions would be more acceptable. As For the writting it was okay. I just didnt care for the way the author made the Hero the only person with issues. The heroine eventually did apologize for leading him on but it was far too late at that point for me. I wished he didn't forgive her ao easily. some groveling from the herione would have made it easier for the listener to accept the reconciliation.
The heroine was suppose to be this professional uptight naive women, which for me was a complete put off. i found myself rolling my eyes a few times at her parts. it was like being lectured by your mom .
As to the narration it was okay, nothing to complain about. The epilogue was not that great. I didnt like the HEA it seemed to fit into the heroines version of HEA not so much the Hero. All i have to say is out of 3 not one Boy.. really!
I will not be listening again.
