Publisher's Summary

Kayla Moore has always been comfortable with her feisty, maneating reputation. At least it was fine until she hit her 30s and saw her best friends, Stephanie and Nicola, settle down with Linden and Bram McGregor, leaving Kayla as the odd one out. Tired of being the third wheel with nothing but one-night stands and dead-end dates in San Francisco, Kayla decides to take a vow of celibacy and put men on the back burner. But she finds herself wavering the moment she lays her eyes on Linden and Bram's cousin, hot Scot Lachlan McGregor. With a steely gaze and a successful rugby career back in Edinburgh, Lachlan is the kind of man who makes her want to throw her vow right out the window.
It isn't until the two of them are thrown together one long, unforgettable night that Kayla realizes that there is so much more to this brooding macho man than meets the eye. But even with sparks flying between the two, Lachlan can't stay in America forever. Now Kayla has to decide whether to uproot her whole life and chance it all on someone she barely knows or risk getting burned once again.

Decent story, painful narration

I wanted to like this one but I really struggled. Antony Ferguson did a fine job with the Scottish brogue but his falsetto female voice was annoying. Jillian Macie has a nice voice and her narration of Kayla was fine. Her attempt at a brogue, however, was downright painful. Truly, it was so bad that it was a distraction from the storyline. I'm not even sure what to compare it to. It certainly wasn't Scots but I can't say it was like any accent I've ever heard. Just. Plain. Bad.

If I had it to do over again, I would skip this one. It was too annoying to put up with for 17 hours. I forced myself to listen all the way through and, while the story was okay, I felt like I wasted my time. Once it was over, my lingering feeling about the audiobook was simply annoyance.

I don't get all the uproar. Narration was awesome.

Just kidding. Narration could easily kill this book! I feel so bad saying this because I probably would do a horrible job too. despite the massively flawed narration, the story is adorable and sweet and wonderful. After reading several books in a row that just really didn't do it for me at all this was a good one. If you still read. Like actually read and not listen... you might want to save this for reading. I am very forgiving of bad accents...but I agree with every single thing said. Harsh and true. AGAIN, SORRY!!!! I could notta due aneh bettar...

This was a sweet story! I let it carry me away and I loved the characters. OOH. ALSO, Can I get a hallelujah for NO CLIFFHANGER? Thank. You. Refreshing author. I would read more of her stuff. GOOD JOB!

Constructive criticism for the narrators...Female lead's voice was fine. No problems. Scottish accents are hard. I find it easier to listen to a bad American accent by a Scot...than a bad scottish/Russian/icelandic/Spanish/Irish accent by an American.

Male lead's voice 'accent was decent'...but Dude. You removed All emotion from the female voice...it's like she was on a sedative all the time and was swaying and looking at the ceiling.

Shoot. that was a bit mean. Dangit.

Story was strong. Shine through the narration. Worth the read!
