Summary

Literary agent Emily May is in danger of losing everything she's worked for - her job, her home, her friends, and the security she provides her older sister back in Singapore - all because she doesn't have a green card.

Racecar enthusiast, high-flying, fast-living Derian Winfield is called home when the only family member she still cares about falls ill. Forced into assuming a role in her father's dynasty she's spent years avoiding, Derian needs to rehabilitate her black sheep reputation in a hurry, or the agency will likely end up being lost in a takeover.

Together she and Emily take on Derian's father and his hatchet woman, and in the process Derian comes up with a plan to solve both their problems. Now she only needs to convince Emily to marry her - a perfectly reasonable solution to all their troubles, or so she thinks. She just hadn't counted on falling in love.

Good book

I love Radclyffe and Abby Craden, I think the narration was fantastic as always. But I felt the story was a little bit boring compared to her normal books which usually has more drama in them, wanted more to happen in the story ups and downs even with Martin the dad coming in and getting in the way more as this would have caused more drama.

Unbelievably bed plot, one dimensional & formulaic

The plot of this novel is ridiculous because the premise it is based on - that the daughter of a US Embassy official would need a visa is wrong. She would be a US national even if born in Singapore and would not need a visa. This mistake in the plot makes all the important parts of the story unbelievable. Added to this, the characters and story are written in in a one dimensional way with nothing to create any emotional involvement from the reader.

Much of the writing sounds like Radclyffe has strung a lot of individual sentences together so there is no flow or depth. Apparently she narrates her books so little wonder. Radclyffe should hire a good editor if she's not up to doing it herself. Every now and then Radclyffe's writing talent peeks through, although this is rare. However she should try writing stories that are not simply formulaic vehicles for sex and so similar that they start sounding like the same tale repeatedly retold. I think she might surprise herself and actually come up with a good novel with depth and insight.

Abby Craden's reading style is so affected and irritating it does nothing to improve this tedious audiobook.

I only finished listening because I was hoping it would improve. While the last two chapters were a little bit better than the rest this is not enough to make the whole audiobook worth listening to. Be warned!

smiling

I knew I would love the story because it's Radclyffe. But, I was anticipating the argument or fight between the 2 characters. And when it happened I laughed. And after they made up, I was smiling the entire time not wanting to end. But, knew it would. Radclyffe is so predictable that you literally know which direction the story is heading and how it will end. And that is why I always give 4 stars instead of 5 for Radclyffe books. The story and performance is definitely a 5. Radclyffe needs to surprise us readers one day. And even put an epilogue. Not that this review will matter. As for the Narration, Abby Craden is one of my favorites. Love her voice and the tone she uses so you can make the distinction of each characters. I always look for Abby Craden Narrations. She is amazing!

Great Story!

The u-haul is offset by years of interactions, even if guarded. Cross-culture ethnically, the lovers have similar tragedies that has shaped them as well as loyalty where it counts. Great character development. I really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes publishing insights. Not at all sure how the woman in the cover art relates, but the story was great.

Maybe the Best of all!

I was totally absorbed by this book. The characters were lovely and believable. The story kept me listening late into the night. I have liked Radclyffe's books before but I think this is my favorite so far.
When it comes to narration, Abby Craden has my little lesbian heart in her hands. I could listen to her whisper sweet nothings to me forever. Makes her perfect for all these Romance books and this one I think was the best.

It needed more.

The story was fine for a light listen, with good narration and generally likeable characters. It lacked in character and backstory development, but worked for a quick Saturday read. I was initially excited to see this author include a Person of Color as one of the primary characters in the story; unfortunately, the only way one would know that was because it's stated that she was from Singapore, but that's it. This actually became distracting, because I keep seeking character descriptions or cultural references that would support her being Singaporean, but there were none that I can recall. Even the and title and cover photo made no sense, in that regard. I was particularly disappointed with this lack of effort on the author's part.

You can never go wrong with a Radclyffe!

First, this story was awesome! I enjoyed the characters. Their personalities, mixed well together, which made the chemistry leap into the listener.
Abby Craden...what more should I have to say? Craden is spectacular and gives life to each character, her voice is a type of seduction that makes its way into your soul and fills you from the inside.

Keep up the good work ladies.

At a loss for words....

This book is well written with characters and emotions that left me wanting more. A longing for the world to wash away so I could continue living in a world this author and narrator created. Together they laid out a story that I never wanted to end. Beautiful, captivating, and powerful with emotion that is both overwhelming and breathtaking. A wonderful dance of Love, desire, and passion you can feel, with a longing for more.
