Short Steamy Book with Sensitive View
It rates in the top 20 of all the audiobooks I have listened too.
The novel was short and sweet and I could listen to it in just one sitting. It kept my attention very well and introduced the characters especially well. I got to know them in just the little bit of time spent with the book and they became memorable and made me wish the story kept going on and on.
I loved the female lead character, Mary Bright. That name really fit her. She seemed like a sweet and gentle person that had a very sexy side to her. She saved the main male character from the clutches of a cougar wife of a man who worked for him quite nicely and then agreed to play his boyfriend so that no one would hit on him. I was happy when they actually hooked up.
Well, there is a rather steamy sexual situation in the book, but I believe it was done in classy style. It wasn't too much for this old lady (me) and was sensual but gentile at the same time.
I wish there was a little more to the book. I would have liked to have known what else went on in the couples life in the future. I do understand that this book was designed to be a short story, but maybe there could be sequels?

Intriguing and fun romance novel.
Romantic, captivating and gripping.
Sweet Mary is my favorite character in this novel. She is innocent like but with a hot and sensual hidden side to her that you find out all about in this novel. I think a lot of women could relate to Mary.
I enjoy the tone in Jodi Stapler's voice. She kept me interested in this book. I never found myself bored or getting tired. I wanted to keep listening all the way to the end (which I did)She is an excellent reader and has perfect pronunciation.
Without giving too much spoilers away..I really enjoyed Chapter 9, Desires. Wow! Is all I can say.
