Publisher's Summary

A wildly funny, ridiculously romantic spinoff from best-selling author Melanie Summers....

Princess Arabella of Avonia is bored out of her ever-loving mind. No 28-year-old wants to live an endless loop of high teas, state dinners, and the same five conversations. They want freedom and adventure. After a wild night out in Ibiza ends in disaster, the royal handlers have shortened her leash considerably. Desperate for an out, she sneakily signs up to cohost a new nature docu-series, starring Will Banks, the man dubbed "McHotty of the Wilderness". 

Will has ladies all over the globe lining up to meet him until a hot new adventurer comes on the scene, and his ratings take a nosedive. Producers decide an emergency change in format is in order. Enter Princess Arabella. The pampered and proper royal is the perfect foil to Will's rugged outdoorsman. 

It's hate at first sight, but their on-screen loathing makes for great television. Surprisingly, when the cameras stop rolling, these two finally see each other's good sides. Can these opposites find their forever in each other's arms, or will their differences be their undoing?

Contains mature themes.

Cute Story

I liked this story, but the guy that narrated Will was really bad. His voice was stiff and forced, when this character should have felt tough and masculine. That part was a flop for me.

Male Performer is Robotic

Bruce Mann is horrible...he is very robotic and hard to listen to...not sure who thought this was a good performance or this is the tone that needed to be set for the book but it does not work.

MUCH BETTER READ

This is a good story, ruined by the male narrator. While the female narrator is good, she just can't make up for her partner.

the story was good

I enjoyed the story. The female narrator was good, however the male narrator is the worst I have ever heard. He literally sounded like a robotic voice. There were a few times that I thought I wouldnt make it through the story bc of him.

New male voice please...

I really enjoyed this book which is a good thing because the male voice is horrible. Please find a new one before recording any additional books.

I also could have done without the nauseous praise given to Harry and Megan. Their selfish and childish behavior should not be rewarded.

Male narrator so bad I couldn’t listen

I didn’t get far because the male narrator was so awful. I typically love type of story and can power through poor narration, but this time is was impossible.

Male reader is not acceptable

Love the series
Love the author
Great “beach reads”
Appreciate them on audible so when driving or crafting or otherwise busy can enjoy the stories read to me! Better than tv as seeing is not required.
BUT
Bruce Mann is a terrible reader. This desperately needs to be noticed. Many reviewers say similar. Please have this trio re-read!

Unexpected

I thought I would love this book, I cannot put my finger on it because I usually enjoy Melanie Summers , for what ever reason this one just didn’t hit the spot. If you are a Melanie Summers fan, please go ahead and get it. Maybe I was just having a bad day.

Absolutely Loved It!!!

So glad to hear Arabella being so strong and independent!!! Love Will’s character and strength! He is the perfect yin to her yang. I’m waiting impatiently for the next book! Hurry up November!!!
