The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.
Simon Danbury, an internationally sought-after motivational speaker, helps women from all walks of life with love, self-esteem, dating, and career building skills. Handsome, witty, and wealthy, Simon seemingly has everything a man could want. But appearances can be deceiving. While Simon may have the answers for millions of women all over the world, when it comes to his own love life, he's a giant, sexy mess. Divorced, and convinced that he'll never love again, the very last thing he expects is one Charly Boudreaux.
Charly doesn't want to be at this seminar in the middle of nowhere, but her sister made her go. She's the one who has her life together. Great career, amazing family, nice home, and loyal friends. So what if she doesn't have a man? She doesn't need one. If she's learned anything in her almost 30 years, it's that men are more trouble than they're worth. And they have a nasty habit of breaking your heart into a million tiny pieces. So she'll sit through all of Simon's touchy feely crap and go home and get on with her life. Except Simon isn't really spouting crap, and when he smiles at her, the butterflies are ridiculous.
Never mixing business with pleasure, Simon finds Charly, a bright spot in a universe that's been dark for too long. But will he be able to resist her? And why would he want to?

A great book good story line, shame about the English accent or lack of it the male reader was so American trying to portrait an English accent but failed! Being British myself it stood out, however, I still enjoyed the book.
"Enjoyable series but his one was not as good as others."
The Simon character was too plastic and the poorly performed accent made it worse. I normally enjoy York's narration, though would much prefer if the book was read together by the male and female actors like a script instead of each taking entire chapters. (Listen to Catherine Coulter's FBI series as an example). York's character did not work not in this audio version not only because of the accent but also because the voice did not fit. If you are fan of the series read the book but skip this audio version for a better experience.
"The story was intriguing and sexy"
Lets start with Sebastian York voice! The man voice simply sexy! Which is add to the story!
I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet, romantic, hot with two great characters and a very protective and crazy family to complete this story.The Boudreaux Family!!!
Simon was so sweet, thoughtful, funny, and really HOT!!!I He had his own demons and tried to survive them, but he was only a human. And Charly was pretty great too, and she had an obsession with shoes. She was a great friend, a loving sister and she wanted to find her prince like her daddy said..
Kristen Proby did an amazing job with this sweet, emotional and heartfelt romance.
"British character without the accent?"
The story was interesting enough but was not my favorite of The Boudreaux series. However, the narration fell flat. The British dialect was present, but neither narrator adopted the English accent. I was frustrating since the Louisiana drawl is heard throughout.
"Charley is feisty"
I'll start with the good - The story was good; the family dynamic is great. The concept of this was good. Definitely a good addition to the Bordeaux series and still room for more to come, so I'm glad of that. It was solid.
The not so good - I gave the performance 3 stars. I really like the tone and timbre of these narrators, especially SYork. His voice is just so yummy. However, I agree with other reviewers - the main male character, Simon, is a Brit and there is no trace of a decent British accent anywhere in this story from either narrator.
In all honesty, I'm not sure why the author even "went there" as the whole premise and story line would have worked just as well if the self-help guru were from another region of the US, but I don't blame the author for the failing here. She wrote her story and it was up to the narrators, and especially the producer of the audio version, to ensure that the story was read well and believably.
I gave an overall rating of 4 because I did like the book, but the weak and intermittent effort at British vernacular and intonation was disconcerting.
"Amazing series again"
Loved it!! Never disappointed in Kristen Proby! Love her series books! Where is Beau's story?
This book is a great continuation of this family's story. I love this book and the narrators! I is well written and wonderfully read!!
So is Simon British or not? Only part of the story! The story itself was a success Kristen Proby, but the male narration was a failure! The voice was too old for the character! Too much Sebyo is not a good thing!
I liked this one. I can't wait for the next one. It's going to be interesting!
OK I love Sebastian York's voice but he obviously is not good at accents. I wish that was taken into consideration when hiring a narrator.
"Another Proby Hit"
The story itself was great. I had some issues with the narration. If you can't do a British accent don't narrate the book. Neither narrator did.
