Publisher's Summary

Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She's tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her. A week's vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun. Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn't date, he doesn't stay the night, and he doesn't make any promises. It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

Are These Two Related To Rabbits?

This is an engaging romance between two people that avoided commitment and lived on different continents yet somehow found a way to forge a relationship. Who knew that boinking like rabbits could be a strong foundation to build on (wink, wink). I like this story and am really glad we got all three parts in one book, otherwise don't know if I would have finished the series. I have listened to a couple of other books by Louise Bay so now I'm always looking out for her next book. The narration was superb -- Sebastian York and Saskia Maarleveld are two of my favorite narrators. They did an amazing job making Anna and Ethan seem relatable.

Another Great Audio for Louise Bay!

Louise Bay is a "new to me" author as all her audios released in 2016. I must say, I'm in LOVE. Her stories are low on angst, which I appreciate, yet high on steam, which I REALLY appreciate. There is no contrived, convoluted "Three's Company" moment that has to be overcome, just a story of super hot physical attraction turning to like, and eventually love.

The narration of this book is amazing. #kingofauralsex Sebastian York is always spot on for the quality of his work and very well cast for his character. Saskia Maarleveld is a narrator on my "go to" list for her voice acting skills and her English accent in Empire State is perfection-not too "posh" and very believable. Her ability to perform male voices is excellent, which is a rare talent for female narrators (in my experience), and I seek out her work based on that.

All in all, this is a fantastic listen and #wellworthacredit.

Two side notes:

*I also really enjoyed Indigo Nights and King of Wall Street. KWS is on my top ten list for romance audiobooks in 2016. I highly recommend both audiobooks.

*This audio was re-recorded because of poor reviews for the narration of one character. As a 99% audio listener I can't overstate how pleased I am that the author took the time, effort and money to re-cast and re-record this book. It's always disheartening when you see overwhelmingly positive reviews for a book but the audio is lacking for whatever reason.
