Publisher's Summary

A new enemies-to-lovers standalone.

Byron Crowne is a charming liar and a gorgeous monster.
I detest him.
I can't resist him.
He’s awakened desires I didn’t know I had.
When he touches me, I need to fight him...and I need him to win.
Our one night stand bruises my skin and leaves dents in the walls, but the sheets aren't the only thing we shred that night.
And suddenly, the stakes are higher than ever.

Olivia Monroe lights a fire in me that died a long time ago.
I’m a different man when I’m with her. I need to own her, take her, mark her as mine.
Everything changes when she might be pregnant and for the first time in my life...I’m powerless against this stubborn, untamable woman.
She’s the one in control and I have an impossible job:
Prove I’m worthy to be a father.

Wow

This was an exciting and funny read. Loved the banter between the characters. They started on opposing sides only to become one on the same team. Them and their love.
Narration was awesome too.

A “JUST ONE MORE” 5 STAR ALL-NIGHTER

I love the way this talented author builds her stories, paints her scenes and skilfully creates and describes seismic chemistry that you can truly feel.. and with this book she did all that and so so much more. In this enemies-lovers story CD writes about the angsty push ‘n pull conflict both characters have as they near the flame that could potentially destroy them both.. but, if they looked again, it could also be the perfect fit, fix and future for them both. CD challenges and taunts you with the ethical and personal dilemmas that Olivia faces as the professional and personal forks in the road loom.. and you pray she makes the right decision for her, for Byron and for their future. CD gives you a strong crusading heroine you empathize with as her dreams of becoming a Mom shatter month after month with every failed IVF try.. but you have your fingers crossed that timing will be everything and trust that CD knows what’s she doing. CD gives you a powerful, closed-off, self-possessed, emotionally damaged, hot alpha anti-hero with a bruised soul who steals your heart bit by bit and, as the tragedy in Byron’s past is slowly revealed, his true loving nature shines through his crumbling possessive walls. And finally, she gives you the raw passion, hot sex (with sub-Dom undertones), love and the HEA you knew she was oh so capable of deliciously delivering.

Worth a credit? Complex vulnerable characters, a well-oiled clever battle of wits, manoeuvres and winners plotline, a smouldering sensual awareness and awakening of dark desires and a tug of war.. because he doesn’t want love and she’s fighting against feeling it. The awesome dual POV narration by Elena and Sebastian brought CD’s characters, well-plotted words and all the delicious feels to life and made this an addictive, memorable and YES, very creditworthy.

Mediocre

Great narrators, but the story wasn’t worth a credit. Not bad, just nothing special. Won’t listen to it again.

f'k someone you hate cause he's HOT as hell..yummy

How are things supposed to turn out when you're trying to have a baby and making out with someone you despise. Wait... why are you having sex with someone you despise?? Well, cause he's f'n hot and he wants you too! You can't keep your hands off of him. Geesh... I'm not sure what to do in this dilemma... never had to face such a choice. After having listened to this book, I wish I had this dilemma! OMG Hot! Hot! Hot!

This is a wonderful story that starts off in unusual circumstances but works its way around to a HEA. It's definitely a great listen to how two people who hate each other can't live without each other. So cute!

The narration is just perfect. You will definitely enjoy this book! Don't miss out.

Wow!! A complete winner.

Let's start by stating the obvious... C.D. Reiss can write like nobody else! This woman has such a gift for words and for developing character chemistry that is uncanny. The premise if the story is solid, the pace is very well done and the stakes were always high. These characters were engaging and she definately delivered on the sexy / hotness factor. Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York are always such a dream together, but having them narrate for C.D Reiss is like the perfect trifecta of voice to content. I am.so happy this is a series because it means I'll get to hear more about the characters as the other's stories develop. So thrilled for this audio! A true must listen.

First boring book by Reiss

The plot is absolutely ridiculous. I know hot romance books often have a silly premise but this takes the cake. It was too much absolutely irrelevant blah blah between scenes of the pair together. The whole Olivia wants a baby and why not have one with a man she morally loathe but find sexy. Give me a break.

Wet panty, toe curling, lip wetting and can’t stop listening from start to end

Again Christine RD Reiss nailed it again with this one...bring back some many hot hot moments I loved from ‘The Marriage Games’. Lord Byron and Beauty ( Olivia) - rivals, enemies to passionate hot sex and it is raw, it is genuine and I love he chemistry . I wanted more and can’t wait for Logan’s story in Crowne of Lies....Christine....you got me hot and flustered in this story...

Didn't like it at all

At the start of this book Byron and Olivia are supposed to be enemies but that doesn't seem to last very long. Then it turns into sex and losses the plot to the story. I don't mind sex in a book but it got to the point that it seemed that that was all he want from Olivia. Olivia was supposed to be this strong independent woman but she let Byron tell her what to do. The fact that the plot thinned out really got to me. This is the first book I read of CD Reiss and it will probably be the last. I will probably be returning this one.

Can’t go wrong with these three

CDReiss, Elena, and Sebastian, perfect for a great listen! CD writes nothing but greatness, and with these 2 narrating, it’s perfect... more that just sexy scenes, but a story you can grip... there must be another book to expand these characters!

Elena & Sebastian.... golden

Something about these voices - they always deliver an exquisite listening experience. They pull you right into the story.
This story has their desires and their goals at odds with each other. Byron and Olivia just cannot stay away from each other no matter how hard they try.
Olivia is looking for a baby, not a relationship, but what if she gets both? It's pretty fast paced and over before you know it. Very enjoyable listen.

Too crude for my liking.

Not enough intimacy and love. Too much crude language and raunchy sex. Not my thing.

All in All 4/5 stars. Great author

I love female characters that don't give up their dreams for men. She changes him by being who she is and he grows into himself without breaking her apart in order to do so. They are both strong characters that don't loose their personalities through the book. Mega hot too.

Just as dark as I expected

It was just as dark as I expected–i.e. not too much, and balanced with deep feelings. I wasn’t prepared for the slight BDSM relationship, although I shouldn’t be surprised, since it isn’t my first book by this author.

As usual, the various themes and plot elements are heavy: the death of a loved one, the medically assisted procreation, the place of women in a familly… Next to those, the mutual attraction between enemies is almost light and happy–don’t worry, it is not.

My main problem is that I didn’t really find any of the main characters likeable. Olivia was selfish, and Byron clearly disturbed. But, I don’t know, I still enjoyed the way they found each other and, though after a difficult journey, found peace in each other.

The casting for both narrators was spot one. Though the male narrator can sometimes sound monotonous, he was perfect for Byron, and the female narrator always does a great job with broken characters. I was a bit puzzled by the fact that the text exchanges were in duet narration, instead of dual like the rest of the book.

Not everyone’s cup of tea I assume, but a great book nonetheless.

OMG where do I start.

Kind of book 1 to the Crowne series. OMG this book is so hot I had to make sure I didn’t listen to it with people around me.
Absolutely fantastic narration and I can’t wait for more.

Normally I love CD Riess BUUT

I normally love CD Reiss books but not this one

I tried and tried but I could just get in to it. it had a hard time catching my focus. and I think the sex scenes were very flawed and boring in what CD reiss usually writes.
