Steering clear of relationships has never been difficult for demolitions expert Cole Bowen, but now, with his brother's engagement sending the female population into full-blown hysterics and the town of Alden's monthlong festivities not helping matters, he finds himself in hell. When he discovers Christine Sheridan, Alden's new resident - and the object of all his wet dreams - has sworn off relationships and is going to hire a gigolo to get professionally laid, he decides to kill two birds with one stone.
Christy is so not drinking again. Thanks to Jose Cuervo, she has her friends signing her up for stud conventions and Cole frigging Bowen offering sex in exchange for fake dates, which is so out of the question it isn't even funny. She knows the domineering man will push her boundaries, and after battling all her life with self-esteem issues, she isn't ready for that. Too bad he won't take no for an answer.
Cole is determined to strip away all of her defenses but refuses to lower his ever-present walls, so when Christy realizes she wants more, she's left with only two options: walk away or crack his shield - and risk her heart in the process.
This story was so great. When I saw it come up in audio I was excited to listen....so disappointed! She is such a great author, and the narrator ruined her book! Half the time it sounded like I was listening to Adam Sandler, the other half sounded like a cartoon voice for a villain. AWFUL!!!
This was a pretty good book, if you like the romance/erotica thing. Alpha male! The only drawback for me was the narrator. He was okay... but the voices were over and distracted from the performance. Just my opinion...
