Lou just needs someone to take her away. It doesn't matter if she knows his name. Or if he knows hers.
Actually, it's better if he doesn't know hers.
At least, that's what she tells herself when she's sticking her tongue down the throat of the sexy handyman she just met at her new job.
Her father's dead. Her family's fortune is gone. And - oh yeah - she's assumed a false identity so she could get a position at Huntington Manor, the luxury tourist attraction that was once her family's estate. Nobody here knows that she's Louisa Cunningham, former heiress and current complicated head case. To them she's just Addison Thomas, assistant to the hotel's general manager.
Well, except to handyman Ward Brannon. To him, she's the strange, but intoxicating, new girl who tried to have sex with him without even knowing his name.
Ward is everything Lou knows she should stay away from. He's a playboy. He's constantly getting in fights. And he resents her family for reasons she doesn't understand. But, in spite of herself, she can't stay away from him, even when that puts her secret at risk. Even when it becomes increasingly clear that he harbors a few secrets of his own.

"Sexy and Dysfunctional Characters"
This was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't sure what I was getting into, since it's the third book in a series and I haven't read the two preceding books. It worked well as a standalone and I'm considering going back to purchase the first two.
The story was interesting while still being realistic. The main character is completely unpredictable, so it made for a fun ride. The narrator was a little 'rough' sounding...I might think twice about getting the other books in the series if it's the same narrator. Otherwise, a fun, sexy new adult read.

"Even better in audio!!!"
Such and amazing book from start to finish!
Stolen bottles of wine and a epic hedge maze.
Lou all over Ward when she first runs into him.
"I really enjoyed this unique book!"
Since I DON'T LEAVE SPOILERS.... I will say that YES I ENJOYED THIS BOOK in fact I enjoyed it much more then I thought I would!! I THINK THE NARRATOR really brought it to life!
My 3 things I ALWAYS TRY TO ANSWER ARE
1. WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK?
YES & I already have!!
2. WAS THE NARRATOR & BOOK GOOD?
YES & YES!!
3. IS IT WORTH THE CREDIT/MONEY??
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?? GRAB A COPY!!
"Great narration but Lou is something else"
This is the second book of this series I have listened to, I still felt a little lost and still believe you need to listen from the first book to get the full understanding. I thought the book was good with a good plot. This didn’t have as many hot sex scenes as the next book in the series. It does have some surprises for a lot of people.
Ms. Goer as the narrator did a wonderful job. Her male characters were wonderful as well as her female ones. She puts a lot of emotion into the listen and gets better with each new audio of hers I listen to. I did not hear any background noise nor any place where the volume is higher or lower than the last. She has a smooth clear voice with lots of passion in it. You had not trouble knowing who was talking whether it was male or female each are clear, and clean voices. You were never left guessing what each character felt. There was no background noise just a clear pleasant listen. If any breaks where taken you could not tell. I look forward to listening to more from this narrator.
Some of the characters I really like other not so much. Lou is so wishy washer she knows what she wants but doesn’t. She thinks maybe she should go back to the guy she left but then decides not. She uses sex to get her through the tough times which has put her in the mess she is in. I do have to give her credit she is trying to change. She isn’t doing so badly for having lost everything she had but still needs to grow up a lot. I understand why she went back for closure I am unsure if she ever got it. Ian is something else you are left wondering how he still has a job after all he does. My heart really went out to him over the course of the book as his story unfolds. I couldn’t feel sorry for Lou I didn’t like her from the start but I did like her a little at the end. I am still unsure how she got away with some of the things she did. She runs to hot and cold for my liking
This is a story full of drama secrets that when they do come out will leave a lot of pain. This was an enjoyable read I did find a few things I really liked about the book. Most of the men in this story are just not the smartest things. I do not know why Ward hung on so long he had to have known she was using him. Ian for me was the best part of this story he stood up for his self telling the whole word what they could kiss not caring what anyone thought. If you like drama wishy washy women who uses men than this is the story for you.
"You need to read books 1 and 2 ..."
I wouldn't necessarily change anything about the book but I would recommend reading books 1 and 2 first in order not to be lost. I didn't and I found it hard to follow along at points. What did her father do to lose the money? What was her life before this?
Predictable ... leads into book 4 which I had trouble getting into.
If Lou and Ward would have gotten to know each other before sleeping together. Yes, I realize that the whole running away/bad girl was Lou's way but I didn't care for it.
The narrator, Ms. Goer, did an adequate job with the narration but I didn't care for the book so I couldn't get into it.

"I love the series."
I think it rates at a 3. I'm having to shift gears and read about Calder's
I liked the back story of the Cunningham Family.
Sarah Beth is a great performer with this story.
Yes. I felt like I was experiencing
the sadness and anger and finally say good bye to her former
home and life. Louisa Cunningham is a really lovely character and
Read the rest of the series.
I was given this audio book free for my honest.opinion.
Narration - Sarah Beth Goer - Pretty Good. This is the second book I've listened to that Sarah narrated and she's getting better with each title she narrates.
Now the book? Well, I liked it. Did I like all the characters? NO! Lou (our heroine) about drove me off the deep end. She starts off by running from Ian and comes back to her childhood home under another identity to try to get a job. She's hired as the manager's assistant just as they are putting the finishing touches on the conversion of the estate into a luxury tourist attraction. She's JUST been hired and has barely made it to her room when she's got her tongue down another guys throat! OK, so that's not really what drove me off the deep end. She could easily be crowned the queen of Blue Ballsia! There are hmmm...I don't know...four, maybe five scenes where she's all over either Ward or Ian, getting them all riled up, ready to play hide the salami and she puts a screeching halt to it, telling them "I can't do this"
But then again? Blue Ballsia once, shame on you, Blue Ballsia twice, and then thrice, shame on me. So maybe Ward and Ian are the bigger clunk heads!
I never really understood what she hoped to accomplish by going back to her childhood home. She realized that there was nothing she could do to stop what was happening. She did engage in quite a bit of shenanigans of which I'm still uncertain how she wasn't busted.
I didn't realize this was the third book in a series, so it works as a stand-alone. If you like a lot of drama and some humorous shenanigans, then, I think you will enjoy this book.

"Didn't really grab me"
The story was okay but I didn't like the lead female character at all. She was just rather needy and pathetic. I just could not relate to her at all.
I did not like the sound of this woman's voice at all. The tone and the delivery was way to annoying. It made the story hard to listen to. In fact I kept walking away from less listening to it. Making it seem like it took for ever to get over with.

"I'm no longer spoiled"
Yes, the story was fun. You follow Louisa and see how her life is no longer roses and sunshine since her family has lost their money.
When she was stealing the wine, I laughed at how she finally got to try the wine and guess what, it sucked!
Had to be Louisa, the book is from her point of view. She gave the character life to me while I was listening.
I laughed at a lot of it. I now want to go back and hear the first two in the series so parts of it will make sense.

"Another Wicked story!"
--I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
This being the third book in the Cunningham Family series, I was glad I listened to the other two first. While,this could be a stand alone novel, it was helpful to have the background from Calder and Lily, making this much more fun and interesting. I didn't have a feeling about what to expect from Lou, she was Calder's sister who left right after her dad died and was much the philanthropist. Couldn't be more wrong. While it took me a while to warm up to her, and the issues of her dealing with her loss(es), I eventually began to really like her. Ian I found to be sweet but pathetic. He really got on my nerves, but Ward....loved him. He was a very complex character, you learn a lot of his sides and understand his ways of thinking.
Sara Beth Goer did a wondeful job portraying this book. Her rendition of Lou in all of her complicated sides made her believable. I couldn't believe the book was over, a very fast 7-1/2 hours.
And the cliffhanger...Can't wait for Lost and Found to be out so I can continue this audio adventure!
