Publisher's Summary

"I love this book. I love this book! One last time for the cheap seats: I love this book! It's like the literary version of Ted Lasso, where you find yourself grinning when you're done, yet never felt the smile develop on your face." (Dolly R. Sickles, All About Romance)

Francine is stunned when she discovers she's been married - for the last 10 years - to Benny, her surly, nerdy frenemy she worked with one summer in Vegas. How in the world did they end up married? Though there was a certain drunken night... She tracks Benny down, sure he'll be as shocked about the marriage as she is, sure he'll be happy to dissolve their union ASAP so she can get the documents she desperately needs.

She's surprised to find that Benny is now a cold, wolfish billionaire. And yes, he'll sign the paperwork - for a price: She has to spend the next three weeks playing his adoring wife.

THIS WAS A VERY UNUSUAL STORY LINE

I loved the overall surprise of the beginning of the story, however the constant sarcasm from the female voice kept me aggravated. Jason did a good job, but why have a nine year gap? I also believe the personalities of the dancers could have been a bit more refined.

Great fun

This is my first listen. I read on kindle on the release date. I love this series! I love how all the main characters from the other books are still involved and real. this story was sweet,sexy and got a bit more intense than the others but that's ok. still a great hea but these couples need to make some babies! I hope these ones are first, a little James.

Agree Female Narrator grating

Besides female narrator sounding almost like an old “Valley Girl” dialect plus whiny exaggerations was very hard to get use to. Also, emphasis of syllables was distracting

Dialog for most of the friends didn’t sound like 30 yr olds more like 20 year olds thru most of book

Male narrator was good,

Bennie and Francine break my heart in the best way

What do I expect from an Annika Martin Billionaire book? Insane humor, vivacious heroines, intense Heroes... and by the end of the book I expect my heart to be broken and mended again. This book is all that, but with a few twists. This story is a close proximity, sham marriage, opposites attract rom/com. But more than anything, it's a character study. Mysterious, complex and constantly shifting.

These two characters, Benny and Francine, have many layers that Ms. Martin slowly and artfully reveals to us in each and every inner monologue as we progress through the story. And it's a bit of a puzzle for the reader to work out as they go along because we never know for sure what's real and what's being seen through the narrow lens of each character's personal perspective. Of the two characters Benny has the most work to do. We all tell ourselves lies to support what we want to believe, and that's what Benny is doing—bending reality to believe the worst of the person who he's fighting so hard not to love anymore. We watch him struggle so hard to convince himself that he doesn't love her.

Benny's a focused cerebral introvert who is socially challenged and doesn't understand extroverts at all. That's why he makes the misjudgments he does. However don't dump on Francine. She's the more social of the two but that doesn't mean she's immature or superficial. She just has a very different personality. She doesn't understand that Benny doesn't know how to do the subtle dance of a budding relationship; he's not adept at body language or flirting; he needs to be hit over the head with a bowling ball, so to speak. But in most ways she "gets him" and cherishes what is unique about him and what he is now hiding. The saddest part of this whole story is all the miscommunication that's taking place and keeping them apart.

So the essence of the story is the relationship struggle progressing through the characters' personal narratives and illustrated through the comedic scenes, the highlight of which is the Swiss Miss dinner. (Don't ask, ya gotta read it.) But once I thought I had read the climax, lo and behold the real climax sneaks in and the story takes a turn toward the dramatic—different and more intense than the other stories in this series. And I was so proud of Francine.

So bottom line, while this story has all of Ms. Martin's wicked humor, don't think it's superficial. You don't have to dig deep to enjoy it, but you can if you want to. There are plenty of layers to dig into. And as always, Ms. Martin's writing skills will expertly navigate you through it.

not for me

the female character was overly immature, reaching, and narrator made getting through difficult. just listened to Jason's/Benny's chapters.

Sweetest billionaire series book, hands down!

Oh my God my stomach twisted, my heart soared and ached, and my face split into shit-eating grins right along with the story. I LOVE the undercurrent weirdness of these characters! I feel like each new "Billionaire series" books is my favorite, but this one takes the cake.

Very disappointing

After listening to the Wake- up Call Girl, I was really looking forward to another book in the series. This book was absolutely awful. The lead female character was an insensitive b—-h. About 2/3 of the way in she apologizes but she doesn’t really change and it’s way too late. So disappointing. I’ll try one more from the series but save your credit on this one.

Love the book, not the narrator.

I really like the storyline but cannot get past the way the female narrator reads.

Voice

The female voice is annoying just plain irritating. The other name is mature and reflective.

Fun addition to series

I've really enjoyed this series. Not too much angst, but lots of fun. And all of the characters are so different. This story features Francine and her past crush. Due to one last drunken night in Vegas, she doesn't recall that they are married. When she goes to ask for a divorce so she can get a visa to do a European tour with her ballet company - her life-long dream - but Benny says no. Cue a series of events where they go as a 'happily' married couple and drive each other a little crazy. But seem to have fun doing it. The couple remains strong throughout. Starting their friendship back up with some animosity only to grow closer, understand each other better and eventually fall in love. There is a villian, of course, and he comes with a backstory that isn't explored much. That could have been more depth to that part of the story. But it doesn't take away from the overall book. It could have, perhaps, enhanced it though. Narration was great, as usual. Overall, a fun listen!

Nice story

Fairly quick story. I would have liked the main characters to have been fleshed out a little more.

I didn’t really get a good sense of their personalities and the love between them felt somewhat rushed, even if they had feelings from years earlier.

Okay to read as a stand alone although the number of side characters was a little confusing which may not be the case if the books are read in order. This is apparently Book 6 in a series.

I particularly liked the male narrator’s voice.
