Christian fiction isn't my usual genre but the blurb was interesting!!! A great read/listen with fab twists and turns!!! It kept me drawn and captivated which is a must in any book... And as most Reviews have said.... you have to love Grandma Ruthie!!! It a book about ones faith and family which I can totally agree with and relate to more that I anticipated...

NB this book has some triggers in it which could be upsetting to some!!! It certainly made me weep!!!!

He (was) the hottest player on the ice. She's a (struggling) sports journalist looking for her big break. Charlie Denton has been handed the most impossible assignment from her stick-in-the-mud boss: get an exclusive interview with the NHL's golden boy, Duke Harrison. The catch? She's got eight days or she'll be demoted. Fired. Kicked to the curb - no way is she letting her future rest on the broad shoulders of a goalie who is at least three seasons past his prime.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn't know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me. I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted - I knew who I wanted - until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

This is the first time I have heard this particular narrator, she was ok... she did a good Male voice...

As for the story... Meg lost her job as a lawyer (could have been a bit more on that story as to what happened there...but that maybe just me who wanted to find out more).
She got a Job at The Private Club under Grayson.... and has to undertake certain "tests" and a "hot heavy steamy connection" blossomed between the hothead "I am the devil who doesn't deserve love" Grayson and Meg... intertwined with this the story becomes mysteriously entertaining and I couldn't quite believe the ending.... I definitely didn't expect it but it does reveal that there will be more in this series as I need to know what happened....

In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world. Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty - until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist.

As one of the league's toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it's the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that's kept him from getting involved in relationships-or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can't refuse...and Van meets a woman he can't resist.
