Summary

A summer job. That's all it was supposed to be. It never crossed my mind that I was about to collide with a man who would obliterate every plan I ever made. My mother has always warned me that love is like a lightning bolt and it strikes without warning. But I had no intention of getting struck by either lightning or love anytime soon. I'd be too busy finishing my journalism degree and landing a job in a city far more sophisticated than Phoenix. There was certainly nothing in the cards about getting involved with an ex-ballplayer turned nightclub boss. He was too old for me, too complicated, too distracting. On the surface, we had almost nothing in common except the draw of an overpowering physical connection. The seasonal job at a local resort was going to be temporary. He was going to be temporary. But insufferably sexy, arrogant Dalton Tremaine has other ideas.

And the harder I fall for him, the more I can't find a good reason to resist giving him everything he wants....

Strike is the first book in a brand-new sexy spin-off series from NYT and USA Today best-selling author Cora Brent. No cliff-hanger! May be listened to as a stand-alone.

couldn't finish

I got to about 3 hours in but the story just seemed to be taking a while to get anywhere. Normally I would still persevere because the story wasn't bad just a bit slow. However, i just couldn't cope with listening to the female narrator anymore. She seemed to speak in a monotone at times with no expression.
I wonder if the story seemed slow because of her narration.
Both these things together meant I just gave up. However, I am going to attempt the next in the series as there are different narrators.

worth a read

I really did enjoy this book and the characters. I also enjoyed the narrator's voices that took the book and made it alive. I would recommend this book and say nice Sunday Audible when walking around the house getting things done.

Not keen on Female Narrator

Female narrator read fast with no feeling. Guy narrator was great. Will try reading the book, as listening to the female's monotone voice I just couldn't get into it. I love Cora Brent and her books -if you can't take the audio give the book a read!.

Loved It

I absolutely loved listening this book and can't wait to learn more about the younger generation of Gentrys. Cora Brent did an amazing job and Brian Ingram and Desiree Fultz did an amazing job bringing the characters to life

A solid romantic story .

I enjoyed this book's characters. I especially liked the contrast between both of their families his having poor relations and hers being a family filled with lots of love. It seems like the two were destined to be together to fill the voids in each other's worlds. I highly recommend the book. It's a great listen.
