I bought this audiobook not really knowing what to expect, but I was so engrossed in this story from the beginning. The hero is a rich movie and music producer and the heroine is a waitress, janitor and credit card help line operator. The two seem really unmatched at first, but they begin a relationship. I just can't say anything more, but there are shocks and surprises that made me gasp and I had tears in my eyes several times- and I rarely cry over books! Mental illness is dealt with quite tastefully and the narration was very good. I recommend this angst filled story wholeheartedly!

Felicity got talked into attending a Sugar Baby party where selected 'beautiful' people are given a number, socialize and hope that one of the rich and powerful members will choose to 'sponsor' them in exchange for companionship, sex or whatever is bartered for. Felicity had three jobs, could look after herself financially and when she wasn't working she was at home reading, talking with her roommates or watching films. She didn't really want to be there and certainly didn't want to mix.. but when she went snooping around the mansion she's watched by Billionaire Theodore Darcy and he will, if Felicity will let him, change the course of her life.
Despite his millions and his success Theodore Darcy is missing something in his life - he's annoyed with his brother for hosting a Sugar Baby party in his house.. but when he sees a beautiful woman lost in her own emotions playing his piano - Theo's instincts and libido took notice. But despite their off the charts chemistry No. 13 didn't want anything from Theo except sex that came with an end date and that was initially fine with him. However, the more 'encounters' they had, the more he wanted to get to know the mysterious, talented and unpredictable woman who'd captivated him and consumed his thoughts - but the trouble was Felicity wasn't in it for the long haul.
An entertaining story that had push-pull elements to it and enjoyable banter as Theo tried to reign in Felicity who was friendly with everyone but came with Daddy issues.. and there was angst because his parents expected so much more too. Likeable easygoing characters - heroine was funny, sassy, talented and happy and the hero was mega in every way - sexy, dirty, handsome, thoughtful, sensitive, compassionate, loving and loyal. There are plenty of sexy hot times, light times, sweet times, happy times and fun times.. until a mega twist spins the story into a whole different direction and kudos to JJ McAvoy because I NEVER saw it coming.. you sneaky talented woman. Drama filled, romantic, poignant, thought provoking, heartbreaking and beautiful scenes followed. Dual POV's and the narrators kept to their own genders which I like.
Worth a credit? Yup this one's a keeper.

Easy listen, with not your standard ending which was a nice change. Great twist! Narrators did a great job - female narrator always reads female characters and same for male narrator even through the pint of views change and it's well done. Haven't heard it done like this before.
