Publisher's Summary

After two years of taking care of her heartbroken father, Evie needs a new start. Leaving the States and following her sister to Australia to work as the personal assistant of rugby star Xavier "The Beast" Stevens seems like the right kind of distraction.  

Tall, muscled, and devilishly handsome, Xavier is the love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy. He never forgets a girl's name because he never bothers to remember it in the first place. Evie soon realizes that being Xavier's assistant is a 24/7 job; the man seems unwilling to even set an alarm for himself.  

As she watches him move from one woman to the next, Evie is glad that her heart is safe from his attention. After all, she's a far cry from the size zero models he usually takes to his bed.  

But soon being around Xavier doesn't feel like a job and seeing him walk around his apartment half naked all the time isn't helping either. Evie knows that giving in to her attraction will lead to heartbreak, but when Xavier starts treating her as more than just his assistant, resisting his charms seems like an impossible task.

LOVED!

Loved that I could relate to Evie. I’m so glad she was able to blossom and start really loving herself. Loved this story so much! Wasn’t sure how to feel about Xavier at first but I ended up really loving him. This story was everything I hoped for!

Great story

Play story of the narration was awesome guy. The woman narrator did great for both leases I don’t think the male Voice was needed at all.

Easy read

Predictable but still a very good book. Only thing I didn’t care for were the chapters that Xavier was “reading” and did the female voices; that sounded ridiculous. Other than that, very well read.

Horrible male narrator

Horrible horrible male narrator.
Just terrible. And when he does the female’s voice… omg.
He sounds like a parody to a real narrator.
The book is good and the female narrator is great.
It’s a real shame.

Great story

I love the Emma Wilder narrating but the Tom Kennedy was fine until her start narrating the girls part. It was actually kinda annoying. Other then that. It was a wonderful story.

Review

Story set in Australia which gives a little more interest. It’s about a womanizing all star jock who hires a chubby assistant and well you’ve got the whole story right there. Not this authors best effort. I’m in love with her Mafia series though. So read that instead.

Great story, male narrator very annoying voice

I love the female narrator she was the reason I bought it but the male one makes the female lead sound like a child. I would buy another by author but not with male narrator

Good Listen

The story line was great Hearing Evie cone to like herself.

Xavier is the typical playboy but I loved him.

The only fault with this book is the male narrator, his portal of Evie is cringe worthy.

One of my favourite massacred by the narrator

Cora this is cringe. Tom Kennedy has ruined one of my favourite books. Did he think the brief was to portray Xavier as a Paul Hogan parody?
Rugby players do not sound like this. I have no idea how this was approved .
Of all of the sexy deep Australian voices that could have told this story. Is this a joke?

Meh.

Extremely bad Australian accent by male narrator, made Xavier sound like a complete bogan. Evie's insecurities were annoying.
