Publisher's Summary

Hadley Donavan can’t believe she has to go home to Nebraska for her sister’s wedding. She’s gonna need a wingman and a whole lot of vodka for this level of family interaction. At least her bestie agreed he’d man up and help. But then instead of her best friend, his evil twin strolls out of the airport.

If you looked up “doesn’t-deserve-to-be-that-confident, way-too-hot-for-his-own-good billionaire” in the dictionary, you’d find a picture of Will Holt. He’s awful. Horrible. The worst - even if his butt looks phenomenal in those jeans.

Ten times worse? Hadley’s buffer was supposed to be there to keep her away from the million-and-one family events. But Satan’s spawn just grins and signs them up for every. Single. Thing.

Fine. “Cutthroat” Scrabble? She’s in. She can’t wait to take this guy down a notch. But somewhere between Pictionary and the teasing glint in his eyes, their bickering starts to feel like more than just a game....

I liked it, but the narrator...

The book was cute. I liked it a lot. The narrator was almost what did me in. She’s great except for drawing out the last word in 90% of the sentences. This is what she reads like: I went to dinnerrrrrrrrrr. I had fishhhhhhhh. And a potatoooooooo. And omg stop making every word two syllables too longgggggggg. 😠

Not much of a story, but a lot of sex scenes

If you like a lot of graphic sex scenes without much of a plot, this book is for you. For me, I love a good romance novel, but prefer more character development and less descriptive sex scenes. This was the typical "we hate each other but are just too attracted to each other" type novel. The female reader had a fairly deep voice, so her vocalization of both the male and female characters sounded very similar. She also had an odd way of ending all her sentences in a low tone which I found annoying.

Annoying narration

I honestly can’t say how good the story was because I couldn’t get out of the first chapter listening to this narrator. Maybe I’ll get the written version.

Small town girl, big city dreams

from NOLA504NERDS blog
Hadley goes home to Nebraska for her sister’s wedding with her bff Web as a wingman. Only, it’s not Web that shows up to the airport but his evil twin brother Will. Will is a too hot for his own good billionaire. He’s the worst. And Will thinks Hadley is gold-digger scheming Web to get a hold of his fortune. Hadley just wants to do what ever it takes to put up with Will this week and make her family believe she has a perfect life. But fate and Web have other plans for Hadley and Will.

Me and Angie were lucky enough to have a Facebook live with Avery this past Monday. We had such a blast, falling in love with Avery instantly. I immediately got this, her latest book, with my audible credit. I can confirm that Avery meets and exceeds your expectations of a sexy romcom. I literally died from cuteness of this book. There is so much fun and humor in this story. And the sexiness is off the charts! The family dynamics are funny, cute, and satisfying to your soul. PawPaw and his gal pals – omg so freaking adorable and funny. You haven’t lived until you’ve partied with PawPaw. This was such a cute romcom book with some very hot scenes. The story is well developed, entertaining, and addictive. The intensity of hate, lust, and overall chemistry between Hadley and Will is palpable and everything you’d want from an enemies-to-lovers romance. Other bloggers have mentioned the “zipper scene”. Sexiest. Scene. Ever!

“Will was drowning in Hadley and he couldn't think of a better way to go.”

Kelsey Navarro’s audio performance was incredible! This was the first audio I’d listened to by her but it definitely won’t be the last. She brings the characters to life with her voice, energy, and emotional range. She gives each characters their own voice and personality, which adds to the audio experience. Kelsey helps me this an entertaining story. I’d one-click anything she narrates.

Cute, but some scenes...

This was a really cute romance novel. However there were several scenes that were for a “mature” audience which were too detailed and way too long. Who wants to listen to that in the car going to work?!

Hate to Love

I really enjoyed Avery Flynn's humor especially family game night with Will and Hadley pretending to be in love. Will showed up to take his twin brother's place as Hadley's pretend boyfriend and to try to prove that she's really a gold digger trying to get their fortune. Will is in for an awakening on hrr family's ranch where he doesn't fit in at all. But can he take his blinders off before it's too late and he loses Hadley? I thought Kelsey Navarro did a wonderful job of narrating all the characters. Since this is Book 1, I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

just ok

Predictable story, rather annoying voice cadence, and way too much harsh sexual commentary. Won't be looking for another listen by this author.

Good book, but the narrator ruined it for me.

The overall story was good, but could not handle the narration. The story was expected, but did get better in the middle.

Good Story but...

Template

3 Stars for me!

My rating range of this story... 2 - 3.5 Stars
If significant, why? So mu h repetition

Main Character Ratings...
H = 4
h = 7

Was cheating involved? No
Any major triggers to be aware of?

Scenes with heat... Yes
What point does it start? 55%
How much of the story? 15%
Anything beyond M/F? No
If yes, explained

Heat Rating... 7/10
Clean or Fade to Black - 1 or 2
Normal to Descriptive 3-5
Detailed Descriptive Sex - 6-7
Um, Wow, Beyond Descriptive Sex - 8 or above

Was there so much sex or unrealistic sex that you rolled your eyes and/or skipped forward? Almost

The back story... The H believes that his twin brother's good friend is a gold digger and trying to rip him off. The H is just friends and is stuck in an adversarial relationship with the H.

The Romance... Kind of builds out of lust and family manipulation.

The drama explosion... The H believes that the h tricked him and is trying to steal his money.

Did it feel real or contrived? Contrived
Was it OTT? Very
Separation involved? Yes
Was it resolved properly or rushed? Rushed into a fizzle

Final Notes... The H repeated the same lines over and over and over again throughout the first 60% of the story which drove me insane. The skip forward button became my best friend. At the end, instead of talking to the h, he just trashes her, abandons her and then she easily forgives him.


HEA or HFN?

for those who like explicit sex scenes

Story would have benefitted from concentrating less on the sex and more on the love story.

You'll enjoy if you like Gossip girl

At first I struggled to listen to is as I didn't like the narration, but after getting used to it I quite enjoyed the story. The performance sounds like something straight out of gossip girl

Frustratingly sweet

Avery Flynn has a way with characters, even though they're idiots when in love they're likable if not a little frustrating while they work everything out. The story, while not all that revolutionary, is well structured and compliments the character's stories magnificently.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this book which follows the standard enemies to lovers formula which means a summary in this review is redundant.
Kelsey Navarro has a slight drawl which I found super annoying. Were it not for the catchy story, I would have called it quits a couple of chapters in. It would have been better to have broken up the chapters with a male narrator - strange that there is no male narrator given the perspectives change between his and hers from chapter to chapter 🤔

Romance for the modern age

Avery nails it again.
Lovely story, depth of characters, well written, and the gender roles aren't soppy cliches - everything I now expect from a Flynn novel. Bonus points for making condoms sexy and normalising safe sex practices.
