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.

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.

If you like reading a sexy, seductive, mesmerising romance then this is the book for you. The plot is simple, what starts out as a one night stand transitions into something so much more. It's a series full of desire, passion, lust, love. Anna and Ethan are adorable, beautiful, wonderful protagonists and once I started listening I could not stop, I was all consumed by their world. Both narrators were amazing. Love, love, love this book and now feeling quite desolate without it!

narrator was boring and I struggled to finish this book. would not recommended this series
Didn't love it, didn't hate it. I think it got into the romance too quickly without time enough to introduce the characters. I like to feel more of a connection with the characters when I read a book. The sex scenes were detailed but a bit repetitive. Saskia has a great voice for both characters but I found Sebastian's female interpretation terrible. I also think he sounded a bit old for Ethan. Overall, it just felt a bit flat and boring.
