It's true when people say opposites attract. Blake Nathaniel, a self-made billionaire visits his cowboy roots hometown to meet his parents. While being there, he has a love-at-first-sight moment and falls for a natural beauty named Sara Cameron, who happens to be his ill father's nurse. Sara, being the elegant woman that she is, denies Blake's every advance towards her, but on the other hand, Blake, being a determined alpha, does everything to get her. The chase begins but who will win?

Story: The story itself is only an hour, and I imagine it is very difficult to do much character development in that amount of time. Most of the characters were pretty superficial, except Sara who was written as an uptight, condescending snot who was very difficult to like. After meeting him once for only a couple of minutes, she barged in on Blake while on the phone and told him that the people waiting for him downstairs were more important than any business call. In spite of that, Blake likes her. (OK. Crazy people need love too, I guess.) So he tries again to get close to her, and she is needlessly rude to him. This apparently makes him want her more. (Alright, but please consider therapy, dude.) He buys her flowers, is rebuffed again and told she is absolutely not interested in him. At this point, it's called stalking, but OK, he keeps at it which I just do not get. All he really knows about Sara is that she's a hot nurse who's incredibly rude and obnoxious, and I'm hoping he cuts his losses like any SANE guy would because most guys don't really like b*tches. But he's not giving up yet and decides to buy her expensive gifts until she snaps and finally persuades him to stop. Then, guess what? He leaves her alone, and she changes her mind. (My eyes rolled so hard, it hurts to look down now. Just NO. Too late. Live your life wondering what could've been if you weren't such a B.) Yeah, well. He's nicer than me. Whatever.
Editing: Either there is a shortage of editors who know what they're doing, OR authors are just skipping the editing process. There are many repetitive and redundant sentences, as well as unrealistic and very awkward dialogue.
Production: The recording is lacking. There seems to be a lot of white noise in some places, echo in other places, pops and clicks and drastic volume changes.
Narration: The narrator does an OK job of "reading," but this needed a professional actor to "perform" it. (Though I'm not sure how much that would've helped.) It seems like Giselle Lumas was reading it for the first time while recording, with no preparation, so it's a bit stilted and choppy. However, as I said earlier, the dialogue is very awkward, so I think she probably did the best she could with the material she was given.

- Erin "Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not."
Not What I had Hoped...
The story was very short, only a little over an hour, but it could have been so much better. I have read/listened to several books that were just as short but were so much better.
The story did not flow well. The dialogue was odd and not believable. Sara was rude and very unpleasant towards Blake. Not sure how he could have put up with her behavior. I know guys can be blind by beauty but this was too much in my point of view.
The narrator reads it ok. I'm not sure if it's her or just an odd dialogue for anyone to try to put more intonation into it. It sounded emotionless. There seem to be some background noises at some areas.
