Publisher's Summary

A sexy new stand-alone from number one New York Times best seller Vi Keeland.

Before I even met Donovan Decker, I knew his shoe size. You see, I’d gone away for a few days, and in my haste to get out of the airport, I’d grabbed the wrong suitcase.

After checking out the expensive footwear and tailored clothes, I dialed the number on the luggage tag hoping maybe Mister Big Spender might have my bag. A deep, velvety voice answered, and as luck would have it, he had my suitcase, too.

Donovan and I met at a coffee shop to do the exchange. Turned out, it wasn’t just his voice that was sexy. The man holding my luggage was absolutely gorgeous, and we had an immediate spark. He got me to admit that I’d snooped in his bag and then convinced me to make it up to him by letting him buy me coffee. Coffee led to dinner, dinner led to dessert, and dessert led to spending an entire weekend together. Donovan wasn’t just handsome with a panty-dropping voice. He was also funny, smart, and surprisingly down-to-earth for a man who wore $700 shoes. Did I mention he also did my laundry while I slept? Definitely too good to be true. So what did I do to repay him for his kindness? I waited until he was in the shower, then ghosted him. My life was too complicated for such a great guy.

In the months that passed, I thought about Donovan often. But New York City had eight million people, so what were the chances I’d run into him? Then again, what were the chances I’d run into him a year later...when I’d just started dating his boss?

NEEDS A TW

This is the second or third book I’ve read from Vi that did not include any trigger or content warnings, and I STRONGLY feel that it should’ve. These are not triggers for me personally, but I still feel that they should be addressed in case they’re hurtful to other readers, so I’m listing them here:

*****Trigger/Content Warnings*****


•Rape/sexual assault- historical, not the hero, directly spoken about, not very detailed in description
•Child molestation- supporting character, historical, not described in detail
•Stalking/gaslighting/physical abuse- historical, not the hero, fair amount of detail
•Attempted suicide via drug overdose (Ambien)- historical, described in detail

Another hit from Vi Keeland!

I loved everything about this book! From the story to the narration, it kept me from stopping once I started listening. Autumn and Donovan are so much more than it first appears. The characters are flawed like we all are and took different ways to cope. Andi Arndt and Sebastian York brought them to life. The background characters were really great too. I don't like to give any spoilers but it's one of the best audiobooks I've heard this year! I wanted it to go on and see what happened to some of the background characters but only because they were so interesting. I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who loves plot twists and people who have overcome hardship, which is probably all of us.

Not my favorite Vi Keeland book...

STORY (3.5 Stars) : This was a slow burn book. I also took issue with the heroine's struggles that pretty much placated being a victim. She stayed in the same mental state for 75% of the book and when she finally decided to NOT be a victim, I just didn't believe she'd go and tell her attacker off like that and actually have him take it without a fight or quiet intimidation tactics as he had been doing (open office door or not.) I just didn't believe it. Donovan was a great hero with a great rags to riches backstory, but felt his potential to be a great protector was masked by Autumn's petulant fear. I guess what ticked me off was she abandoned him the moment HE needed her after he'd bent over backwards to be the man she needed. I'm not unsympathetic, I just feel like Autumn was isolated and those like Donovan and Skye had to handle her with kid gloves which allowed her to be a weak character for me. Due to this dynamic, Autumn weighed all the characters down for me.

Narration (5 Stars) : You'll always get a solid performance out of Andi and Sebastian.

Wonderful meet cute

I really liked how Autumn and Donovan met with her picking up his bag by mistake at the baggage claim. After a wonderful weekend, she ghosts him. He doesn't know her last name or phone number but fate steps in and they are thrown together by a pro bono case for her social work client. Who can resist the man that Donovan is? Autumn because she has a lot of complications in her past to deal with. You can't go wrong with a story written by Vi Keeland and narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York.

LOVED THIS BOOK!

Vi Keeland, Sebastian York, Andi Arndt. This is the trifecta of excellent audiobook. Vi Keeland is an author I always pre-order. She never disappoints. This book has all the feels, laughs, sighs and even a tear or two. When you add in two of the Premier narrators you just can’t miss. If you are a fan, you know what I’m saying. If you haven’t read this talented author I guarantee this won’t be the last book you read or listen to by her! I literally could not stop listening to this book🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book is a lot more than just a typical romcom. There are layers and depth to the characters that I wasn’t expecting but really enjoyed. I would highly recommend this book.

I loved this production. You will too.

Andi and Sebastian are two of my favorite narrators and their performances were perfect and wonderful. This is a great story. Complicated and moving and sweet and real. There was less laughing than Vi Keeland’s usual novels, but I truly enjoyed that there was more realism and truth. Every character was fully developed and narrated so incredibly well by Andi and Sebastian. They are truly the best of the best and I will continue to purchase every book they narrate because they also select the best authors to work with. This is a must purchase for all Vi, Andi and Sebastian lovers!

Amazing story

I Loved this story and the way Vi Keeland writes. I listen on Audible because I love the narrators & they bring the love story to life. This book will wrap you up and not let you go until the end. With all the emotions that are experienced and the many situations they find themselves in, this book has meaning & heart.

A real love story

Vi nailed it again 2 fabulous lead characters who you like and are invested in fab ending lots of drama and a little bit of I can't believe that for the reader to get angry about. And really hot sex as we know Ms Keeland never lets us down on. Thank you Vi xxxx

Second time listening and I love it more.

Sebastian and Andi need to narrate more books. I love their voices so much that I've become picky with audio books. I'm listening to old audio books because I can't find many Sebastian-Andi narrations written by Vi Keeland or/and Penelope Ward and while I know this is oddly specific, there's nothing I enjoy more than these two pairs coming together to make what I've started calling works of magic.

I also loved The Spark the first time I listened to it and I love it much more now after the second listen even though I've read it on kindle enough times to recite it.
That said, I can't wait for The rules of dating (my best friend's sister) to come out and I hope the narration will be by my favorite pair.

I pretty much listened to this in one go, as I couldn't hit pause as I wanted to know what happened. If your a hopeless romantic like me, you'll definitely enjoy this story.

Fun instantly likeable characters

I liked them both from the start. The backgrounds slowly getting revealed was intriguing and though I guessed where it was going to end up the drama was a minimum so it wasn't frustrating to read.
This book was fun, interesting and hot.

Love!

The one thing I hate about Vi Keelands books is that they come to an end. I love, and get so excited when I start listening to them. She is my absolute favourite Author.
This book, was great, and as always the Narrators are my favourite combo.

Great fantastic and character building

Vi Keeland is a genius. Sebastian and Andi together just makes it so awesome to listen to. The story was close to the bone but was healing for me and gives hope and strength.
The characters are real and exciting. People I can relate to.
Thank you so much.
