Publisher's Summary

He's a professional hockey player that lives on the edge. I prefer to play life by the rules.  

I'm the personal assistant at a sports agency that no one notices. I don't like sports, and I like professional athletes even less. I'm indifferent to the mostly male clientele, except for one. Mica "the savage" Petrov.  

When it comes to wild antics, Mica is the biggest offender of them all. He's reckless, wild, and carelessly charming. I'm mortified that I find him attractive. But it doesn't matter because the guy hasn't taken a second look at me. Not once. In two years.  

Mica's career-jeopardizing situation requires drastic measures to be taken to keep him in the game. He's got money, I've got debt, and my boss has a crazy idea. Which is how I found myself stepping up to save him from himself. But at what cost?  

How long can I keep fighting my attraction? What ghosts from his past is he brawling with? All I know is that I need to defend my heart before this big defenseman steals it away. Can we win this game? Or is it too late for either of us?  

Contains mature themes.

I hate to be mean..but..

I really like this author and series...but PLEASE, for the love of all things holy...stop using this male narrator! The actual female narrator is pleasant enough, but HIS female voice is just embarrassing. His Russian accent was also pretty bad, but tolerable in comparison to his female voice. Male POV love scenes are just cringy when he does her voice. Away from that, I hope there is more from the Vancouver Wolves series to come and would like to see a glimpse of this couple in another story.

Narration

I don’t mind Alex Judd’s male narration for Mica, but his female narration irritated me. He made her sound like a dits. I read the book before I listened and in no way did she sound weak or whiny, but that is the way she comes off.

Great Story, Narration Just OK

Except for Alex Kydd's female voices, this may be one of my favorite books. I loved the story but his version of Charlie's voice was nasally and whiney and very different from when Madeleine Dauer was narrating Charlie"s parts. It was sometimes very grating and distracted from the story.

The story itself was well done. It really had me on the edge of my seat at the end and I have to say, I really was rooting for someone to punch that slimy detective. lol That would have been a nice bonus.

I also enjoyed the way the love between Mica and Charlie steadily grew and how their characters grew and worked through their issues. It was very heartwarming.

LOVED THIS!!

Russian accent 🤤💦 not the best but I love Alex's narration! This was such a great listen! Fake relationship between two reluctant and unlikely people, threats, danger, hot slow burn and adorable dogs! Micah's wedding vows had me giggling.

Horrible Male Narrator

I absolutely love this book! The male narrator is terrible though. The Russian is bad, but the female voice he does is horrendous.

Mica and Charlie

A delicious little treat. Mica and Charlie embark on a beautiful journey that started out as an agreement but leads to so much more. This is a a definite page turner that kept me entertained.
Narration is great!

Good story, but check out the preview first

I enjoyed the story. I really did. But the woman’s voice was too much. It was too high pitch, almost whining. It was distracting throughout the book. Other than that it’s a fun, romance read with some *spice* and a HEA.

Great story, atrocious narration

Story is great, the narration is unbearable. I actually returned the book and downloaded the kindle version to finish it. The voices did nothing to enhance this story.
