Publisher's Summary

Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation. He's had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition - a private island resort in the Bahamas - he has a chance to mend his broken heart. When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She's unlike anyone he's ever met - down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato. She also has no clue that he's rich...
Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel's domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What's the harm in a little fling when it's just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan's arms, Bronte's ready to give her heart-and her body-to the man in charge. But she soon discovers there's more to Logan than he's told her...a billion times more. Now, Bronte's caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world's most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?

So stupid I almost didn't finish

STORY (contemporary romance) - I love contemporary romances, and this one seemed like it would be really cute. Bronte gets stuck in an elevator in an island resort during a hurricane and meets Logan, who keeps the fact he's a billionaire a secret. They begin a relationship in the elevator, on the island, and later in New York. Logan is powerful and used to getting his way He also thinks that every woman is only after him for his money. Bronte is honest and sweet and just wants a normal relationship with the man she's come to love.

I know this is a romance and things get steamy, but IMHO this story is all about sex with just a weak story holding it together. The writing is pretty amateur, and there is a lot of stupidity going on...situations, characters' reactions. It's a wonder my eyes aren't stuck in a rolled-up position. I know I'm in the minority here, but the only thing I liked about this book was the way Logan changed for Bronte, which was very sweet. After about the first 30 minutes, I turned the listening speed up to 2X and later to 3X to just get it over with.

PERFORMANCE - This reader has a young, husky voice and does an okay job, but IMHO there is no excuse for reading a romance without at least attempting to differentiate between the voices of the two main characters.

OVERALL - I can't say that I recommend this book, but I'm in the minority as it's rated a 4.0. There is no violence, but there is a lot of sexual language. There is also lots and lots of explicit sex, which got boring to this listener after a while. This is Book 1 of the series and the story stands alone. I definitely won't be listening to any more.

Cliche!!!

Yes I got this book on sale for 4.99 and it was enjoyable enough. A billionaire who falls for a hard to get waitress. Obviously predictable story and characters were likable enough but the story was so much of a cliche that I lost a bit of my enthusiasm as I read further. Although it was not a story that drew me in and kept me glued, I did enjoy reading it nevertheless.
