Stella is independent, motivated and runs her own successful PR Company alongside her best friend..... she's about to make the pitch of her life to get a Sportwear Company called JOS out of some negative press which has badly damaged and impacted on their reputation as well as their finances. She's dressed for it, has a good Presentation ready for the appointed Executive and is mentally prepared to give it her all to get the business..... but all her thoughts (and speech) escape her when she's stopped in her tracks by the captivating eyes, body, power and charisma that is Maxwell McCoy the CEO and majority owner of Hurst & McCoy the Company that owns JOS. Time stands still as heated stares pass between them and, for a few moments, an intense connection was made but the spell was broken, they both snapped out of it and Stella regained her thoughts and powered on.... she was there to impress.
Jaded frustrated and deeply concerned, Maxwell knows someone is messing up his late Father's business but all he can do at this moment is reputation recovery and they need a good PR company but the Executive that was tasked with the job of finding a company is, for some reason, stalling so he decides to 'sit in' on the next interview. But when the beautiful and curvy owner of Sullivan PR walks in their instant connection alerted all his senses and woke up his dormant heart. And when she starts to give her brilliant strategy ideas he knows it isn't only paperwork and ideas that he wants to share.
However, the handsome Billionaire has some painful secrets and he knows he has to tread very carefully but he's determined that he isn't going to let the feeling and Stella slip away and Stella is equally as impressed with the real man behind so many Gossip Columns and the title of Most Eligible Batchelor. So..... he offered, she accepted and, over business dinners and meetings, their chemistry grew into sizzling touches, passion-filled kisses and lust-filled thoughts. But, as Stella and Max were trying to salvage the Company, there was someone hiding in the wings trying to destroy it.... and Max and Stella's relationship too - no matter the cost - and they are willing to do anything to do it.
This instantly addictive listen has a full cast of great characters, a hot and sexy romance with plenty of passion, a drama-filled suspense as corruption, deceit, greed, jealousy and revenge heats up resulting in bloodshed, kidnapping and heartache and I found myself mentally pointing my finger at who I thought the villain was.... which constantly changed. There's also a very likeable, strong and sensible heroine together with a possessive, caring, understanding, passionate, loving and very sexual Alpha hero who's got a dirty mouth and he knows just how to use it. Their feelings and raw desire leaps out at you and their struggles, pitfalls and pain swallow you up until the very end.
Worth a credit? It's a very entertaining and captivating dual POV romantic/suspense story which was made even more pleasurable by Kai and Wen's narrating style where they each stick to their own gender's voices which means the chapters flow smoothly like realistic conversations and that's where the magic's found. It's also got some very witty parts because of the banter between the main and secondary characters. Yes, worth a credit or buy..... and yes worth the dark circles and bloodshot eyes because I stayed up till dawn listening to it.

I wish every book was narrated like this one. It's irritating when male narrator's do female voices and vice versa. This was refreshing to listen to. Lastly, we finally get a heroine who's not a spoiled, irritating, insecure brat!
