I love to listen to romance and this had all the potential of a great escape story but at times the reader was stilted as if the was seeing the words for the first time or a very nervous actor who can only say one ward at a time which made me feel like I was almost encouraging her to continue. It was odd because it was not like this through out the whole book but for enough to be off putting. The story was lovely though and I was able to put it on and listen to it while I was cooking and being slightly distracted made it easier to finish the story. I was not however able to listen to it with out this distraction.

Paige Carson - starlet, diva, mess. The daughter of an 80s soap star and a rock god, it's no wonder Paige has no idea what 'normal' means. And Hollywood life isn't helping. She's sick of working with her latest co-star, a boorish Aussie heartthrob, sick of being told she's over-the-hill at 29, and sick of dates that are nothing more than PR stunts.

For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters—a pleasant position, with one caveat. Her charges’ older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response—and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.

As romances go, it had all the requirements, with a little fairy magic thrown in, however, the reader was American and tried to do and Irish accent, being Irish, it made me cringe, it was as bad as Dick Van Dikes cockney in Mary Poppins. She also once got her American and Irish people mixed up. I had to stop listening. I may go back to it later on but for now........
