Publisher's Summary

Richard Storm is saddened that his children are throwing away their lives and gives them an ultimatum. They each have two years to take a failing business and make it a success, or they lose their trust funds and are on their own. His stubborn children think he's gone insane, but they don't know the powerful secret that can knock them to their knees and tear their family apart. Will they come together as they should, or will self-centeredness consume their hearts, ripping their family apart forever?

Crew Storm opens an exclusive resort in the Catalina Islands off the coast of California, and pride swells within him as he accomplishes the impossible. Everything is on track - until a blonde steps into his life. Haley Sutherland is done with her fears, done being a wallflower, and done being invisible. She comes up with a brilliant idea to find the perfect person to teach her how to seduce the man she truly wants. The person she has chosen to be her teacher is Crew Storm. She has researched his technique of charming and luring women to his bedroom and begs him to teach her how to be the perfect seductress. But she soon finds she is forgetting her first love's name.

good story...terrible narrator

Narrator wasn't great. I feel like she was just reading to me. I had to make myself go with it even with the bad narration

Maybe it is me

I really tried to get into this book. However, the narrator's voice drove me nuts! During the romantic scenes, she read as if she was reading off a grocery list. And then there was the redundancy. The author repeated themselves so much I found myself rolling my eyes and saying, “Omg, okay already!”

Silly plot, weird FMC. It didn't make sense

Not one of my favorites.I had to make 2 attempts to read it. I just couldn't get through it the 1st time. It's kinda weird because I loved the previous series of the 2 meddlibg twin brothers, but this book is totally off... perhaps it is a different author?

The story fails = The plight of the female lead was so ridiculous, I mean really what century was this supposed to be in, 1800s? She's sheltered but not. She is shy, but not. She uses the word "servants" to describe working class people, those lowly beings who she is comfortable with rather than her family ... lol, this ain't Downton Abbey babe. Get real!

The male lead is a creep ... womanizer ... who falls in love because he deflowers a virgin? Gah! Seriously!?! Pathetic!

It started out interesting with the triplet Brothers and the siblings being taught a lesson about the value of money but then it morphed into this ridiculous seductress story which could have become something didn't rise to the potential.

The narration was ok but little distinction between character voices, male characters especially all the same old man voice or no change from the female lead.

Crew Storm & Haley

I loved this story and the characters in another one of Melody Anne journey into the Anderson's family.
Richard Storm is reunited with his 2 twin brothers after being separated at birth. Richard wanted his kids to grow up and responsibility, so he gives each of them a project to complete. if completed they will keep their inheritance. Crew took the Catalina Island exclusive resort.
He was doing fine and looking forward to the grand opening, then Haley approaches him to teach her how to seduce men. This is a great jouney for both of them and with lots of surprises. I listed on Audible and it brought the story to life.

5*****Keep Coming Back*****

Love Joseph and his brother's meddling ways. Sad about Richard but anyways, wonderful listen. I've read this series before and loved it. Listening to it is much better though. The character comes to life. I'm glad Crew finally got the happy ending he wants, though, Haley took forever to come around. Will be looking forward to more. I hope Ms. Cook would continue narrating this entire series. She did a great job.

Awful

The dialogue was trite, cliche and ridiculous. the narration was just as bad. The male voices all sounded like the characters were 60 years old and the dialogue in general sounded soooo cliche.

NOT WORTH THE TIME

If you like sex orgies it's okay, I kept reading because I thought they would solve the problems and grow up, which they did, thank goodness!

The assignment

I loved the big family, the cute old men who were match makers, and The love affair between Crew and Haley.

An Anderson too far

I enjoyed reading the original Anderson stories but this felt the author really struggled to find yet another romantic tale. I won’t be reading listening to the next one.
I thought the narrator was awful- she drawled and put no life into her reading.
