Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best seller Vi Keeland comes a steamy new romance novel.
The rules:

No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?
Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. It seemed like a good idea at the time: a handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules, though - lots of them actually. I had to follow the script and avoid dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men last year, it wouldn't be hard to live up to my end of the bargain...or so I thought. Then I realized the deal I'd made was with the devil...and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.
Author's note - Throb is a full-length standalone audiobook. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

As this new series called Life On Stage starts Kate wasn't interested in the fame or the chance of a romance with Flynn, the sweet, sexy, tattooed, long-haired Rocker, when she entered the Reality Show Throb - no, she was doing it for selfless reasons to help her family. She really liked Flynn and the sparks were there initially but shortly into starting the show she met Connor in her downtime away from the Show and was instantly drawn to the handsome, charismatic, hot, 29 year old Alpha man. Flirty banter followed but she had to reject him because of the damn rules but he never gave up. She had no idea who he was but she was insanely drawn to Connor, and he to her, the sexual sparks ignited then she found out he was the Tycoon owner of the Production Company heavily linked with the Show and half brother to the slimeball that was currently producing Throb and the slimeball brother was manipulating and calling all the shots.

There were rules of no dating, no sex outside of the Show and no disclosing the terms during the taping of the Show..... but she went ahead and heatedly broke all of the rules with Connor anyway - some happily, eagerly and willingly but some reluctantly because she always felt bad, emotionally split and torn as to what the right thing to do was. She liked Flynn and he was showing all the signs of being deeply into her but her heart belonged to Connor however, she still needed to win the show for the prize money even though Connor was possessive, dominant, jealous, eager and begging for her to give it all up and let him take care of everything. Then the decision was suddenly and viciously taken out of their hands when..... oh no, nuh-uh I'm not going to give it away but I will say that tears, heartbreak, shattered glasses and broken dreams followed.

Dual POV's, Connor, Kate and Flynn were such likeable selfless characters, the bitter-sweet story held my attention from the start and the dual narration was great. There was a lot of sex and Connor had a dirty mouth but he was such a loveable Hero who could have any woman he wanted..... except Kate and she was the only one he ever wanted.

Worth a credit? I initially had a few doubts about this listen based around The Batchelor type Reality Show but it turned out to be so so much more...... a sweet, hot, romantic, frustrating, entertaining, enjoyable and totally creditworthy listen. And the gorgeous Flynn? well he'll get to star in his own book Beat - hopefully following very soon...... pretty please Audible.

Perfection! Vi Keeland,Sebastion & Molly Fantastic

Kate agrees to do a reality show similar to the Bachelor. Cooper is a movie man with a younger brother who is producing this reality show. Cooper is seen nothing but a bank for Milo, so when he needs money for the show...

During the taping of the show, Cooper plays poker with some of his dad's friend. There is one exception, the dealer is a beautiful woman named Kate. Yes, that Kate.

They are instantly attracted to one another, so the games begin. Cooper doesn't realize that she is on the Bachelor style show that his brother, Milo is producing until he decides to sit in on the planning meeting because of the amount of money invested in the show on Milo's behalf.

Now, real and reality clash!!! Cooper wants to get to know Kate better, however she has signed a contract not to date anyone during the recording of this TV show and for several months after.

What are they do? Especially, as Kate finds her bachelor to be someone she could love.

So many are writing in both the female and the male point of view. Dual narration is becoming more popular and these two performers, Sebastian York & Molly Glenmore, are exceptional

I've read several books by Vi Keeland, this is my first standalone and it is fantastic! I have no hesitation recommending it to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance.I cannot wait to add more of my of her books to my library.

Note: However, due to strong language and mature themes, it is for an adult audience.

Five stars across the board

I purchased this book while Audible was running a three books for two credits promotion. I am happy with my purchase, it was a great deal.
