Publisher's Summary

Max Dutton, a starting NFL linebacker for the Los Angeles Condors, is certain he's going to die young, since his father and grandfather both passed away at an early age. Believing his life will be cut short, Max lives every moment to its fullest. For this reason, Max also shies away from forming close relationships. What would be the point of falling in love and starting a family, only to leave them as his father left him and his sisters?
Nutrition expert Kari Murphy used to think Max Dutton was to die for. She's older and wiser now, but then she's hired by the NFL franchise to follow Max around for a couple of weeks and give him healthy-eating advice, foolproof facts about carbohydrates, and tasteful tips on cooking and shopping smart. Kari Murphy must work side by side with the guy she spent one spectacular night with during high school - the guy she pined after for way too long.
Too bad he doesn't remember her.

Story OK, Narrator NOT

I had mixed feelings about this book. I almost stopped listening, when the story line became a repeat of 3 different books I'd read recently. It did twist out of the expected outcome and saved my feelings about the book. The narrator, however, almost put me to sleep. Her voice would have better suited a bedtime story!

Skip this one...

This book was disappointing. I felt like I've read this same book a few times before. But in this case the dialogue was un realistic and the characters were not well developed. The whole one night stand and dream girl thing didn't do it for me. This was almost a young adult book. There is only a mention of the couple having sex towards the end of the book but zero description. It was boring and un romantic. On top of that the narration was TERRIBLE!! Abby Craden whispers too much, she made Max's sisters all sound like children. All secondary female characters sounded either drugged or too young. Only the last hour of this book was mildly interesting. Total disappointment!!

PS- if you like the blurb (the storyline) I highly recommend you listen to Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson. It's very similar to this book in terms of the storyline but it's a gazzillion times better.
