Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice.
Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn't do relationships. When she's sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is none other than the guy she left naked in bed.
Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for. The green-eyed millionaire playboy isn't used to taking no for an answer, and he isn't about to start now.
When he proposes two months of no-strings sex, Brooke is intrigued and accepts his proposal. Little does she know that Jett is determined to claim the one woman he can't have.

A different narrator-someone who doesn't sound like a 45 year old pack a day smoker.
Only made it 20 mins in before the narrator was to unbearable
There are no words to describe it...
No no no just no
"Nice little escape"
Escapism. Fluff. Relax.
Ms. Nordlinger's expressive voice and ability to give a distinct identity to each character make the book much more enjoyable than if I had just been reading it. In fact, I don't normally read romance novels and may have not finished it if it weren't for the fact that it was more like a performance.
Writing just ok but salvaged by the narrator.
"Unstoppable hot stuff!"
Couldn’t put this down! Great chemistry between the characters. Ooh that Jett…
I wasn’t quite ready for this one, it was sexy stuff all through but it was also a good mystery. It got hotter and better as it went along. Watch out – the story takes you by surprise.
Romy the narrator has a sexy voice and she really went there with the characters too. I totally got her delivery.
"Kept me entertained"
I liked the best friend relationship – reminds me of me and my bff.
I hadn’t heard this narrator before but she was pretty good. Particularly with finding the humor cause when all's said and done, even though it’s a serious book, it’s certainly fun.
Some of it’s kinda silly, but overall fun and I want to hear more.
Yes, I could really feel all the action this way.
Jed is really good. You want to dislike him but he's such a good guy deep down. I really liked romys narration her characters were very real. I enjoyed and am already listening to the next.
"All I can say is I never expected that ending!!"
I REALLY enjoyed this one. I feel it’s only fair to warn you that there’s a bulldozer of a cliffhanger that will leave you desperate for the next book. On first impressions this story appeared to be following the same overdone path.... rich CEO hires a young assistant and then convinces her to sign a no-strings, non-disclosure sex contract but I had a strange feeling the whole time I was listening that some things just we're not adding up and boy oh boy was I right!!! The last few chapters shocked me and I found that nothing is as it seems in this book. The writing style was engaging and sucked me in from the start. I absolutely didn’t want to put this book down once I had started it. I very much liked Brooke as our heroine – she’s really quite naive, trying to make her way in New York, sharing a run down apartment with her best friend Sylvie, she’s working well below her pay grade and has almost given up on finding her dream job. Until Jett, the devilishly handsome and seriously rich CEO, takes an instant shine to our hapless heroine, coerces her into a position whereby she must accept his job offer and straight away, he whisks her off to the shores of Lake Como in Italy where he attempts to seal a multi-millionaire real estate deal with Brooke’s help. Jett is gorgeous, sexy, pretty intense and he’s very into Brooke. He’s got some mysterious ink and a dark past. He’s a hard working CEO heading up his family’s company and is now completely fixated on Brooke. He wants her with a passion that cannot be denied and is pretty secure in his belief that he can get her to sign his sex contract. Brooke can see that he’s dangerous to know but she just can’t resist that magnetic attraction she feels every time he is near. It was intriguing to watch the blossoming relationship between Jett & Brooke grow as they spent more time together in Italy. When they finally do come back from their two week trip that's when things really start to happen... there's a mystery with a great big WTF moment. I still never did see it coming! I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
Exotic, sexy, intriguing....
I read this but like it better on audio book. Narrator's good, can't wait for the next one.
"I'd totally recommend it"
Good plot and characters. I found myself drawn in by it. Don't know why a couple of people are so uptight about this narrator. I liked her style. The book has a great sense of fun and she had that down. I'll buy the next one for sure.
There's alot of locations- made me want to go to italy. I listened to this whole book on a long road trip up and back and I was very entertained - certain things in the story didn' t make sense like how does she really get all this great stuff like in a fairy tale , but then I got into it and there was alot more than was going on too so I'm going to check out the next one.
i liked romy as the narrater because it was very believable, she had alot of expression and i felt like she was really there not just reading.
"Enjoyed this one a lot!"
Really good story and a great narrator. I'm gonna order the second book. Totally recommended!
"A good listen and narration"
As far as romance books go, I liked that this one. It has a lot of humor, and strong women friends, exciting and intriguing locations. Sometimes it was slow and I didn't know where it was going, but for the most part I just wanted to know. I'm looking forward to the next one. I liked Romy Nordlinger a lot, I've heard her before and she always goes there.
love love love this book I just wish wish wish they had choose a different narater takes me up to 16 chapter where I can get use to that voice it's old sounding she sings her sounds and has a rasp in her voice where you wont to cough up like she needs a good clear out I'm so frustrated I would pay for this book to be.redone but story is wow love it....
A different narrator needed. Woman sounds like a 50 year old chain smoker and her attempts at the male leads voice was too off putting to take seriously.
It seems to be what I expected but couldn't enjoy because of narration
Her voice. Sounds very old. Bad at trying to do other characters as well as her own
Don't have an answer for this, I was too distracted to concentrate by trying not to be irritated by narrator.
