Summary

He didn't kiss me back like a gentleman. No, Derek Price slammed my back into the front door. A beast off his leash.

Emily Stanton's perfect life just became a disaster. She has a trust fund brother looking for a handout, a father who is more board member than dad, and a mother who thinks she should give up on this whole billionaire CEO thing and meet a man with a pre-nup and a yacht.

Oh, and then there's that "misunderstanding" with law enforcement witnessed by Miami's paparazzi. Now her billion-dollar deal is on the line, and there's a naked man in her bathtub who claims he's going to make all her problems disappear.

Charming - and happy to bend the rules when necessary - Derek Price has made a living polishing the tarnished images of the rich and famous. He's never lost, and he never takes clients to bed. Until the dazzling Emily. Derek promised her a win and offered up a lifetime supply of orgasms as part of the deal. But if he can't stop her enemies, he'll end up losing much more than he bargained for.

Author Notes: An enemies-to-allies-to-lovers workplace romcom with a meet-nude, four lady billionaire BFFs, a hero whose many talents include styling hair and picking pockets, the best dang drag queen brunch in Miami, and a shameless romance novelist cameo.

Great ebook and even better audiobook

I read the ebook first and then had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook. Both Natalie Duke and Stephen Dexter are so amazing as the narrators. I loved Stephen Dexter's light English accent and they infused humor into their roles. So. much. FUN!

As for the book, this was a great start to the 4 book series and in fact, the other 3 books were also so much fun and really did an awesome job building a fun world that follows the 4 brilliant and beautiful women billionaires.

There are many reasons why this is worth the read or listen- first of all, the humor- I laughed a lot. Not only are the people awesome but the animals added to the fun. There's so much personality in this book! Emily is awesome- i loved reading about her love of science and as someone who also loves science, her nerdiness just makes me happy. Derek, oh Derek. He's amazing- we need more men who are so comfortable with their own, ahem, body. And the other women- the loyal, love, heart and humor. I NEED A BOOK FOR JANE. Please?

Very funny

Being English, Stephen Dexters accent took a few chapters to get used too, but I am glad I stuck with it. Great fun.

A great start to a fun series

Such a good book. I fell in love with Derek and his cocky attitude. Talk about a man with confidence, yes please.
Emily was such a fun leading lady. She is smart, beautiful and wickedly loyal. Add in their crazy group of fun friends and you have a knock out of a start for this series. Well done Lucy, you hit it out of the ball park.

Loved the characters and the story!

I loved the audiobook of Emily and Derek's story and have listened to it a few times.❤️ They are a great match and I found myself hoping they'd get together.
The characters were well developed and the story and plot were wonderful. It's always more fun when I'm not able to guess the entire plot by the 3rd or 7th, chapter.
One of my favorite characters is Emily's assistant Jane, who was a hoot! She was a perfect addition to this wonderful book along with Emily's group of friends. 😍

A fun listen

This series of books is just so much fun to listen to. I love the camaraderie and friendship between these four women and watching the shenanigans that they get into together.

Just so cringeworthy

I was in the verge of quitting this one sooooo many times. I am actually embarrassed that I kept listening Derek is such an a-hole in the beginning and Emily is a doormat. Not a fan of Stephen Dexter but this narration was particularly bad. Terrible brutish accent, truly unlistenable. The last. Quarter of the book where he transforms into a good guy hero is so overwrought I was either rolling my eyes or cringing when he narrated. His narration made some of the sexy scenes awkward to listen to.

Besides his narration the story was choppy with what seemed like gratuitous scenes with her girlfriends and neighbors. Too over the top to be entertaining.

On the good side- I loved Jane. She was the best thing about the book and I might try a story featuring her. I will not read on to hear about Daisy and Luna. Both were obnoxious and the voice and character of Luna was hard to take.

I have really like other Lucy Score listens even though I wish she would’ve emplacement Stephen. Won’t finish this series but may try something else by her.

Just Okay

It took me awhile to get into this book because it it had so many lulls in the story. Some parts were boring and predictable bright side it did have some funny bits :-) . The audible performance was pretty decent.

Charming cute.

This was a very cute book. It was a bit slow in the beginning but by the end it left my heart so full of joy and excited to see what happens with the rest of the girls.

Light, Fluffy and Fun

This book was very light even for a rom-com. It was however, a cute, fun and enjoyable listen.

The story has just enough mystery for you to follow that you didn’t see all of the end pieces all at once.

The male character was made British American for some reason but they opted to not go with a native British male narrator. HOWEVER Stephen Dexter did do a lovely job at it. His voice is very enjoyable to listen to.

Natalie Duke is the female on this book. I have mixed feelings on her but overall enjoyable performance.

its really effing good

although I could tell who the main villian was early on the how and the lengths they went to surprised me and kept me interested. I love that the female protagonist was able to grow into her kicka**edness and she realized that her billions didn't equate to happiness and she went after her happy. there was a teaser for a sequel and I am waiting with baited breath for the next story. this is the 2nd book by Ms. Score that I have listened to this week (unknowingly) and I will be checking out her other offrings.
