Multi-millionaire casino owner Ryan McKay needs a bride in a hurry, and the one he chose has just backed out, which means that he could lose his company within hours. He doesn't know the meaning of the word failure, so he's scrambling for Plan B and not happy that the ridiculous terms of his grandfather's will have backed him into a corner. So when his shy but dedicated executive assistant Faith Lewis tells him that she'll do everything in her power to make sure that he succeeds, she's shocked to realize that Plan B equals her - in other words, he wants to marry her. Faith reluctantly agrees, burying the heavy crush she's had on Ryan for years. But the shy virgin is going to have to live with, sleep with, and reveal so many secrets to the enigmatic man who sees this as a logical business deal. Faith's been holding out for love, but that four-letter word isn't in Ryan's vocabulary. However, love very rarely follows the rules of business or logic, and this business deal is about to get very personal. Contains mature themes.

I listened to this after a heavy book and it was really enjoyable even if it was totally predictable. I do like a Cinderella-esque story.
Even though I had a good idea how the story would go, the writing was quite engaging.
I have to say on a personal level I struggled with the female narrator - squeaky female voices don't really do much for me she was very squeaky, breathy and generally a simpering annoyance. Women can still have all these issues without sounding like a 12 year old, in fact the story would have been a little more plausible if she had sounded more worldly.
funny romantic and and refreshing I enjoy this audio so very much in fact I have head it twice only wish there was more ended far to soon wish there was a book 2 but defenetly recommend this amazing book.
"Another great book by Jaci Burton!"
A great Audible book. Love the narrator she did a fantastic job portraying the characters. I was sad to have this book end.
"Recycled Plot -- Decently Retold"
The plot is old and tired. Executive assistant marries boss to fulfill boss' will requirements. Yawn. Nothing new in the plot nor in the characters. I suggest this book only if you have not read the plot-line before -- otherwise pass. It's not that this novel is badly written, nor badly narrated as much as it is utterly unremarkable. Burton gets you to connect with the main character so this is why I give it three stars -- barely.
"Butlers kick booty - It was----"
I love Jaci Burton. Love her sports books. Her writing is always awesome. This book was okay for me. I wasn't too keen that the heroine had low self confidence but I was happy that she found at least a little by the end. I'm more of a strong willed, girlpower heroine kind of girl.
I played the audiobook as I was doing a series of things. I stopped near the end and came to one conclusion. Everyone needs a butler. I was jumping up and down as he started threatening the big bad hero. You tell them Leeman, you tell him.
If you haven't picked up a Burton Book (we'll say BB) you need to. She's amazing. Oh and everyone needs to get a butler. I'm calling to order a butler right this moment!!!
The main female character was so pathetically shy and childish although her character was supposed to be 26. It would have been a little more convincing if she was 18 or 19. A 26 year old women acting so weak around a man never "knowing what to do" a phrase constantly in her inner dialogue. I'm all for shy characters but they have to have some sort of backbone. Returning this horrible book asap.
Probably not. Her story telling is weak and if her character development and dialogue are the same in her other works, I'd stay far away.
Her male voice was a little lacking. Other than that she was mediocre.
"little too lite"
the story was great but not enough details in the end! history or future. elaborate on her back story
This book will have tears down your cheeks if you are one to get into books like I do. I was scared when she agreed to get married to him just so he could keep his business knowing that she is a virgin and has never fall in love. He is the perfect guy and it took a perfect girl to bring out that side, break the family spell and also kept the family business in good hand.
Narration is very good, really nice and engaging voice Elizabeth Hart!
