Summary

Juno

When I'm late for a job interview and get stuck on an elevator with an annoyingly sexy, ancient-Rome-obsessed grump, the last thing I expect is for him to be the billionaire owner of the building. I also don't expect to almost kill him...accidentally, of course.

Sure, I don't get the plant care position I applied for, but I do receive an interesting offer.

Lucius needs to trick the public (and his grandma) into thinking he's in a relationship, and I need tuition money to get my botany degree. Our arrangement is mutually beneficial—that is, until I start catching feelings.

If being a cactus lover has taught me anything, it’s that if you get too close, there's a good chance you'll end up hurt.

Lucius

Post-elevator incident, I'm left with three things: my favorite water bottle full of pee, a life-threatening allergic reaction, and paparazzi photos of my “girlfriend” and I that make my Gram the happiest woman alive.

Naturally, my next step is to blackmail—I mean, convince—this (admittedly cute) girl to pretend to date me. That way, my grandma stays happy, and as a bonus, I can keep the gold diggers at bay.

Unfortunately, my arch nemesis, a.k.a. biology, kicks in, and the whole "not getting physical" part of our agreement becomes increasingly hard to abide by. Worse yet, the longer I'm with Juno, the more my delicately crafted icy exterior melts away.

If I'm not careful, Juno will tear down my walls completely.

Very enjoyable

I love Sebastian York and his narration. I liked the female narration but thought she over acted a little which spoiled it a touch for me and I believe the delivery could have been better damped down a tad. But still enjoyed it. Story was fun. Well done narrators and writer.

Lovely storyline but VERY slow

I enjoyed the characters and the storyline. However, don’t know about other readers but I buy these books to indulge my naughty pleasure. If I wanted a plain romance book there are gazillions to choose from. In this book, the only 🌶️🌶️🌶️ is the last two or three chapters, other than a couple of kisses (literally TWO kisses from what I remember). I must say though, the narrators were brilliant.

Ok story

The story passed the time. Something was missing, not enough spice and time spent exploring the union. Love the side charters.

Disappointed- not worth the credit used

The story moved very fast and seemed rushed in some parts, I liked the narrator’s voices but was disappointed that I used a credit for the story.

Entertaining, easy listening.

An enjoyable story. Reality may be a little stretched at times but that’s allowed with fiction and makes it all the more likeable. So….nice storyline and great narrators make this a book to recommend.
