Summary

Ricci Velez is a fiercely independent woman that worked her way up from the poverty line to become a respected engineer and property developer. Mistaken as the little wifey by Tara Reeves, the new tenant at her Manhattan apartment building, Ricci wants to evict her before she even signs the lease. A slighted ex-tenant, a vandalized apartment, and an interfering best friend means that she’s forced to offer Tara a room in her own apartment. Can she survive having the secretive hard-nosed executive judging her in her own home? Worse still, can she survive her match-making mother shamelessly besotted by the temporary housemate?

The first story was terribly frustrating

I got this for free thankfully. I picked it up because Lori and Abby are my two favorite narrators. The first story is narrated by either fielding or Lawrence. Dunno. But although her voice was crazy cute she was dry. The first story was extremely hard to finish. I enjoyed the story for the most part. Until it becomes clear this was written for high school lesbians or something. The sex scenes were only implied, which is I guess fine as long as the story is cute and romantic but nope. The two leads go back and forth never quite communicating their feelings or getting together. When I thought the denouement was occurring, something interrupted them. After the 5th time of the ladies dancing around their feelings I actually literally rolled my eyes. The ending was so abrupt it didn’t even close to make up for the previous few annoying chapters.
Rica was frustrating as hell and any self respecting woman wouldn’t do what she does regardless of the past. And Tara would’ve given up. Sorry it’s not a super good love story.

Great writing

This is my second book in as many days by this author and I have to say I will continue to read her work. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the characters and if your are reading this review stop thinking about it and get this book. The only slight complaint I have is that there was no true sex scene. The characters have sex but the details are mostly glossed over. Some people might not have issues with this but I was a little disappointed myself. Regardless, the story kept me up all night, literally, so in the end that didn’t really matter. Get it ;)

This was amazing

I didn't even know that Camryn Eyde had any of her booms in Audible but apparently she does and luckily I had a credit availble to snatch this one up. I loved all the stories that are included in this one especially Woman Upstairs and Celebrity Pass. All the narrators are amazing. This one is definitely worth a purchase.

The first story was a classic romance!

The first story on this audiobook was your typical cheesy romance, which is what I was looking for. The next 2 stories were just porn, there was no story line just erotic. I like a steamy scene in a good romance book, but this was too much for me. I turned it off after skipping through and trying out a few stories that came after. I always love Lori Prince's narration!

wow, new favorite author

I am always reluctant when it comes to new authors. the addition to audible listening means the book is judged on more than the story, the characters or the plot. the tone and cadence of the narrator play a huge part. the Australian book narrator was difficult at first but melded nicely as the story developed. each short story created pictures and scenes to which I found myself panting to finish. amazing work, thank you and i hope to read more from Eyde.
