Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Claudia Burgoa continues a billionaire romantic series in a second-chance enemies-to-lovers story that’ll leave listeners laughing and swooning!

They’ll get their second chance at love...if they don’t kill each other first!

If I ever cross paths with Gatsby Spearman I might just push him from the tallest building in San Francisco.

Saying that I don’t like him is an understatement—I hate him. The prick ghosted me in college, stole the program we created to start a billion-dollar company—oh and I failed a class because of him.

I want revenge. And I want it to be petty.

I created an infallible five-step plan to make him pay for what he did to me.

  1. Destroy his company.
  2. Hire him out of pity.
  3. Make him fall in love with me.
  4. Rip out his heart.
  5. Ghost him while he’s crying from a broken heart.

Simple, right?  

Except, I didn’t take into consideration the old college chemistry rearing its ugly head and bringing us closer together despite everything we do to fight it.

I want vengeance; all he wants is to flirt. Though I don’t plan on falling for his antics. I’ll play this to win.

Let the games begin.

Can’t Help Love is a sexy, fun, at time angsty enemies-to-lovers billionaire romance that’s the perfect combination of seduction and sassy with a couple that lives to torture each other!

A Fun & Steamy Romcom

This was my first book by Claudia Burgoa and I can't wait to read more! Can't Help Love is a fast-paced, steamy second-chance romance. Misunderstandings and family obligations fueled animosity between Gatsby Spearman and Maia Ocampo. They have been professional rivals from afar, until Maia unknowingly crosses a line and forces Gatsby to invade enemy territory. I love an enemies-to-lovers romance with witty, snarky banter, but Claudia kicks things up a notch with hilarious pranks. Slow to trust again and quick to revenge, Maia uses her fierce brilliance for professional domination, determined to ruin Gatsby Spearman. He is the leader of his sibling pack. When he feels his family's livelihood is threatened, not even the beguiling vixen can distract him from stopping him...or can she? I loved the fiery chemistry between Gatsby and Maia. The family ribbing, classic literary character names and hysterical pranks made me a Claudia reader for life.

Sebastian York is a 1-click narrator for me. The charismatic tech nerd-turned billionaire business man is right up SebYo's alley! His deep, delicious timbre suits Gatsby's character perfectly. Stephenie Németh Parker is one of my favorite female narrators. She brought Maia to life beautifully. Her performance of the lovestruck turned ferocious, skeptical business woman was delightful. Sebastian and Stephanie made a fantastic duo in the Can't Help Love audiobook. I can't wait to listen to more.

Weak Storyline

I apologize in advance for this review. It is very rare for me to write a negative one, but in this case, I felt motivated to do so. The plot did not make sense. The character Gatsby walks away from a relationship, and has no idea why he has caused any hurt feelings. In fact he is totally clueless about the repercussions of his actions, despite the fact that he is supposedly an intelligent and successful businessman. In fourteen years, he doesn't attempt to reach out to Myra (Not sure if spelled correctly), but supposedly she is his only love. Sorry. I found the storyline wanting and frankly annoying.

More Spearman Brilliance! Great Story & Listen🎧

Can’t Help Love
Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers, Book 2
By: Claudia Burgoa
Narrated by: Sebastian York, Stephanie Németh-Parker

I loved everything about this book, from Claudia Burgoa’s wonderful writing style to the fabulous characters and storylines she created to the perfectly cast narrators who bring it all to life from the pages to the ears. This is the second book of the “Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers”, each book is featuring a different Spearman brother as the lead character, this can be enjoyed on its own but I highly recommend starting with the first book, series, “Faking The Game”, Aslan’s story, not only is it just as amazing as this book but you get to meet all the brothers in that book, get an inside view of the family dynamics and the camaraderie amongst the siblings, especially the triplet brothers, most of that continues in this book. This book is Gatsby’s story, and it starts off with him in college 14 years earlier when he was in college and in a relationship with Maia Ocampo, the two made a great team both in and out of the classroom. But Gatsby receives life changing news and has to return home immediately and leaves without saying goodbye to Maia, leaving her broken-hearted and in a bind. Fast forward the current time, Gatsby, a billionaire, is the CEO of his own company, Maia is running her own up-and-coming company, he has kept tabs on her watching and letting her buy companies and deals he was interested in, but he draws the line when she makes a play for his siblings new business. It is time that he pays a visit to Maia, who has returned none of his calls that he made to her over the years. Maia is out for vengeance, she has her reasons but Gatsby is clueless to why she hates him so much. I admired and her for her creative mind, especially with his car, and her determination to succeed. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with the perfect balance of drama, humor, heartfelt emotions and hot romance. Claudia Burgoa, thank you for another fabulous story, the laughs and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Claudia Burgoa cast to perfect narrators to bring her characters and story to life. Sebastian York and Stephanie Nemeth-Parker are fabulously talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They had a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed, gave each a voice that suited character to a tee, sounding believable and just as I pictured the characters to sound. Nemeth-Parker played Maia’s role with perfection, captured her every emotion and had you feeling every single one, Sebastian York did the same for Gatsby. Both were great at performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. They set the perfect tone for the story, handled the witty dialogue with ease and landed the humor effortlessly. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration enhances this fabulous story to another level. Thank you for another amazing listen!

Loved this Second Chance Romance!

I loved this hilarious, heartfelt enemies-to-lovers, second chance romance! This second book in the Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers series took my breath away at times and then filled my heart with hope and happiness. Gatsby Spearman and Maia Ocampo were young, passionate lovers in college. Unfortunately something tragic happens that sends Gatsby home to take care of his family, breaking both their hearts. Now years later, they are successful app creators, and business owners. Maia feels betrayed by Gatsby, and is out to prove she is more successful than he is, along with getting back at him in other ways. She tries to avoid him but when Gatsby final gets past her walls, he is determined to win back the only woman he has ever loved. Will they be able to move past all the hurt, pain and betrayal between them, or will the love they thought was long buried win out in the end? Even tho I was frustrated with them at times, I loved Gatsby and Maia's journey from their difficult pasts, to learning to forgive, trust, and build a forever love together. Burgoa's storytelling is beautiful, with fascinating characters that make me laugh out loud at times, cry, and swoon. I'm loving getting to know this part of the Spearman family, along with their sibling banter, fights, and unconditional love and support. It is also fun to have surprise appearances from characters from previous stories! Gatsby and Maia's second chance romance is a bumpy ride but so worth all the feels. I can't wait to learn more about the rest of the Spearman family.

Sebastian York, and Stephanie Németh-Parker are pure magic as Gatsby and Maia. They recreate the fun and passionate chemistry beautifully. York, has an easy way of pulling you into his story telling. His inflections, pauses and voice changes are so effortless. I also enjoyed Németh-Parker's accent and her lyrical voice was so easy to listen to. They made this heartwarming, irresistible, and sizzling romance even better!

Heartwarming story with perfect narration

AUDIO REVIEW
If you love second chance romances look no further than Gatsby Spearman and Maia Ocampo’s entertaining, emotional and heartwarming story. Can’t Help Love in Book two in the Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers and it’s time for protective and caring Gatsby to tell his tale, it’s a wonderful, captivating addition to what is becoming one of my favourite series and for me this is second chance romance at its best so urge you all to one click this gem.
Maia and Gatsby thought they were forever when they met 14 years ago in college but fate stepped in and when Gatsby lost his father unexpectedly, he ended up breaking her heart by walking away without even a goodbye. Fast forward to today and Maia is out for revenge, stealing business transactions from under his nose is one thing but messing with his siblings has Gatsby banging on her door looking for answers……
Can’t Help Love has it all, I smiled, I giggled, I swooned and at times I held my breath as I found myself wishing and hoping that this couple got the HEA they both deserved. I fell hard and fast for the swoon worth, protective Gatsby and I adored the strong and independent Maia but what took this book to another level was the determination Gatsby had when he set out to win his soulmate back.
The narration by Sebastian York and Stephanie Nemeth-Parker was perfect. They did a wonderful job bringing the characters and their story to life.
I can’t wait to see where we are taken next when we visit Paradise Bay for Book three.

Great story and narration

Having read the first book in this series I was looking forward to reading Gatsby Spearman and Maia Ocampo ‘s story. One thing I know when I pick up a book by this author is that I am in for an emotional, heart warming story with characters that are engaging and whose story you cannot help but become quickly invested in.
I love the Spearman family so when I heard this was Gatsby’s story and that it was a second chance at love I couldn’t wait to dive in. I knew that the woman who captured his heart would need to be special and Maia is a wonderful woman, I really liked her.
Spanning a number of years, there was heat, angst, humour and miss communication and it ticked all the boxes for me. Initially I wasn’t very keen on Gatsby, he really treated Maia badly and I could understand the hurt and anger she had towards him. However such is Ms. Burgoa's writng she quickly had me falling for him.
Narrated by powerhouse Sebastian York and relatively new to me narrator, Stephanie Németh-Parker I was drawn to their performances. To me Sebastian was the perfect man to narrate Gatsby, he is well suited to these roles. Both narrators did an admirable job in bringing the story and the characters to life for me.
This was a great addition to the Paradise Bay series and the family owned winery and I for one cannot wait for the next book.

Second chance love

Gatsby and Maia had a brief, Intense love during their junior year in college. And then, suddenly, Gatsby was gone without a word. Maia was devastated and never forgave him, hating him for ruining her life. In the meantime, Gatsby was dealing with losing his father and raising his younger siblings.

I don’t think I have ever met a more wonderful character than Gatsby. He was so thoughtful and caring. When Maia sets out to destroy him, he still tries to make everything easier for Maia. Having the dual narration really added to the enjoyment, both narrators had voices that added to the layers of personality of the main characters.

revenge has never been sweeter!

Claudia has a 5 step plan on how to hook her readers:
1. Create lovable and fallible characters
2. Interconnect them so you get all giddy when they pop up in eachothers books
3. Heap on the emotions so we HAVE TO HAVE to have a happy ending
4. Add the perfect amount of sexy times to each book
5. Rinse and repeat 1-4

Maia and Gatsby's story started off with a happy, perfect love story of finding your one true love in college. They're just kids (incredibly smart and driven kids, but still, kids).
Tragedy strikes G's family and he ends up ghosting Maia which destroys her heart and soul.
What's a girl to do but pick herself up and declare war and plot her revenge!

The ghosting and miscommunication was sooo frustrating but it lead to the people they were meant to be. And this would've been a short story if this had their HEA in the beginning!!

Sebastian and Stephanie are amazing as Gatsby and Maia. Stephanie has the perfect voice and is exactly who I imagined when I read this book first. Sebastian is my absolute favorite and I could listen to him narrate every single day. I love that Claudia chose him for Gatsby!
