It started out like any other morning on the train - until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God?
Actually, he looked like a god. That was about it.
When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out. I might have picked it up. I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers. I might have held on to the mystery man's phone for days, until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.
When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me. So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk's office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first, though.
I didn't expect him to text back.
I didn't expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.
I didn't expect to fall for him - all before we even met.

I'm very new to audio books but judging by the level of my enjoyment, it is about to be my new thing.
Really enjoyable and the narrators really add to the story.
The narration started off a bit annoying but you get used to it. I downloaded this on a bit of a whim as I usually go for crime, but I wasn't disappointed. its a great easy reading (or listening) story, with sweet characters and it's not all smooth sailing for them.
As soon as I started listening I thought oh this is Cheesy. The narrating on the girls part was fine but the narrating on the blokes part was really smarmy, good storyline worth persevering with , worth a listen
"THIS IS A REAL GEM.... TRY NOT TO MISS IT"
IMO, everything about this listen was just perfect.... the loveable characters, the build-up, the chemistry, the witty banter, their flirty texts, the Ask Ida Column, the twist and all the things in between as Soraya and Graham's love story passionately plays out. It's quirky, fresh, feisty and funny in the beginning then it goes on to add romance, sex, touching and sweet scenes, a shocking life altering twist, angst/drama with a bitchy ex, a bit of tormented heartache, a HEA and a wonderful and very funny Epilogue. And, I'm sure that it'll leave you with a smile on your face.
Dual POV's, a very addictive and enjoyable storyline, a feisty, sassy ballsy Heroine who likes to color the ends of her hair depending on her mood and a handsome rich 'tamed' Alpha Hero who's got a dirty mouth, good secondary characters and great narration too. The H/H may be very different types at the start but, through character growth and love, they compliment each other rather than conflict with one another. Vi and Penelope please keep em coming.... I'm loving every one.
Worth a credit? Yes, it effortlessly did what it was supposed to do... it drew me in and transported me to various locals where I could visualize these two well developed characters as their love story was so well described, well written and well narrated. So this is..... wait for it..... well worth the credit. ta da.
Cute back and forth initially but a bit too much of his crude sex. Not much of a premise for their relationship and his rudeness. OMG what a stupid premise for her lack of trust.
Maxine has a pretty boring flat voice.
I wasn't sure if I was going to like the narrators at first, but they were both spot on. This book was fantastic and I highly recommend it!
"Interesting & slightly sweet love story"
A snarky feisty anglo female finds herself with a handsome "get everything he wants rich guy" also anglo. The lead females has issues but with a curvy body and long hair along with tattoos when sh finds a phone on the subway. It leads the main female on an interesting journey to hot sex and a exciting type of lust/affair. Worth a credit & money.. sure
"Couldn't stop listening!"
I didn't think I would like this book at first. But something still caught my attention. After just a few minutes I was sucked in and couldn't put it down! And oh my do I love Grahm's voice. Yes, Grahm is only a character that was given voice to by a yet unknown person (which will change here in a person I don't knownYET!!!, but I am looking up more books recorded by him as soon as I am done!
I recommend this book!
Caution I now also want to get a new tattoo! ; D
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! This book was everything that I hoped for. I LOVED Graham. He was just so awesome. Yes, he was an a** at times, but when he let you in, you were in. He had a sad story and was done so dirty by his ex and former best friend. I mean dirty. Soraya was a hoot! She was just so bold and honest. No falseness about her at all. Both characters were real and not perfect which was perfect for me. Their chemistry was so HOT! 5 stars all around!
Loved the narrations by both Joe Ardena and Maxine Mitchell. Well done!
When Soraya's father came and apologize to her. That was a really important part in this story to me.
There were so many. The scene in the Graham's office when he wouldn't come and meet Soraya. The text messages exchange, the feather and so many more.
Read and or listen to the freaking book! :-) This will go on the "to be listened to again" pile.
"Hate to say it but it was not as great as the reviews suggest"
Is it me? Doubt it. The hero's love was put together sooooo fast and fully that it made the story seem too fake. Unrealistic in fact. A rich, handsome guy with so much to offer falls for an average girl. Yes that's true that can happen, but that's usually after he gets to know her and not almost immediately after he meets her. A guy like that would take MUCH longer to say the three word "I love you". Story was cute but that's all. In a superficial unrealistic kind of way. Still worth a read but don't expect a super clever storyline.
"GET THIS BOOK!"
This is my newest favorite! These authors could probably teach others how to keep a listener engaged. Kept me up all night, and it was worth it. I couldn't really determine it's greatness from reading the book summary, so please take my word for it. This one is a winner.
The storyline takes you on a few crazy turns, but the banter, and the dynamic between the characters was a total A+. Smart, sexy, and seriously funny, I enjoyed every single minute, and did not want it end.
"loved everything about it"
This was only the second audio book I had ever listened to. The narrators in this book were amazing. It alternated depending on whose pov the chapter was written in. Both narrators did other voices in their chapters and they were phenomenal. Then there was the story line and characters. I think this will be an all time favorite of mine. The drama has my stomach in knots. The live shared had me in tears. It was very well written and narrated. I highly recommend.
This is a romantic love story, with whit and comedy. I have to say this first, I liked this story, it's good...but...
Soyaya is the type of girl that grew up listening to her own beat and everyone knows it. You can always tell what mood she is in from the tips of her hair, she dyes it to her mood. When in her normal routine, she is on a train to work and meets with Graham. Graham is so busy barking orders he doesn't even know he is being observed and leaves his phone behind, who said curiosity killed the cat, it could find love.
Graham has learned the hard way that if you want something done then you do it yourself or bark orders till it's done. He doesn't like to wait and everyone bows to him. When he enters the room it is like watching the red sea part, everyone knows he is an ass and they stay out of his way. When a certain woman finds his phone and tries to return it, he had no idea that he was about to lose control.
This is a good book, but not for me. Personally the book, in my opinion, is written more for the movies, it is like it was written as a scripted. I could not connect with the characters, especially right after Graham called his grandmother, I was lost. I was hooked in the beginning, but lost it later on. I am sorry.
