See examples Daniel Zavaro and Quincy Watson:

As the rising star in Houston, Daniel has found fame as captain of his pro soccer team and the city's most eligible bachelor. Daniel has everything - except someone special - and that suits him just fine. He doesn't want, or need, complications.

Quincy has baggage, and lots of it. After a tragic accident spins her world on its axis, she finds herself as a single mother, raising a newborn nephew she never knew she had. Between parenthood, her full-time job, and dealing with the suffocating grief of losing her sister, every day is a struggle. When they begin to cross paths unexpectedly and often, an unlikely friendship starts to evolve. Feelings change. Lines get crossed. What happens next surprises them both....

Before they know it - they've been juked.

Wow

Enjoyed this quick read. Felt every emotion that the author was trying to convey. Love reading books that have family members involved. Narration was awesome too.

Sweet story

After listening to M.E. Carter's two book series, Change of Hart, I selected Juked because Change of Hart was so incredible and I wanted to sample more from this author. Even though this book was not at the same level as Change of Hart, it was a feel good kind of book. There was enough chemistry between Daniel and Quinncy to keep me entertained and several interesting secondary characters to add to the story. I love stories about pro-athletes that meet a regular girl, but since I'm not a big soccer fan, Daniel's character was not as alpha sexy to me as some of the other books that I've read that have simular storylines (i.e. hockey, football or baseball). Fortunately, our exceptional narrator, Joe Arden helps bring sexiness to the character with his gruff and totally hot voice. Joe is one of my personal favorites. He also does an excellent proformance when he speaks in Spanish or uses an occational Mexican American accent. He gives a five star proformance. I was not familiar with Simone. but, she really does an outstanding job as Quincy. Overall, I would give this a 4.5 rating.

Juked

I'm ashamed to say Juked has been on my TBR forever (reads 2 yrs). I bought it and forgot about it. I saw the upgrade for audiobook and jumped at it...but it still sat there. Now comes the part where I'm ashamed. Juked is a great story. M.E. Carter had me in tears immediately. I loved the immediate bond formed with the main character. In such a tough situation, M.E. Carter didn't pull any punches. It was rough, it was real, and it was eye opening. I have to say the meeting between the Daniel and Quincy was probably one of my favorite meet cutes. Juked is sweet, real, and a perfect escape.

Light but sweet .

I Like that this book's storyline is different than most books. I enjoyed seeing a woman portrayed as being strong and hurt without all the yelling and hateful talking. This is who more women in books should be like.

More of a single parent story than a sports romanc

The story was very solid, but for some reason I expected more sports in it. I loved Daniel, the big family dynamic and how mature and gallant he is. This is a male character any woman would love, and with Joe Arden voicing him, it's even better. Quincy is a solid strong willed, smart and great leading female. Her circumstances were well developed and you could empathize and root for her the whole way. A solid 1st book in the series with excellent narration!

It’s ok

It’s overall an ok story. Not something I’d listen to again. But one thing I couldn’t get past is the male narrators breathing. Once I heard him breath between words that’s all I could concentrate on. Breathy gulps. Drove me nuts.

I liked it!

Well the 1st 3/4 of this book was a strong 5 stars. I loved the story of the heroine, Quincy, taking on her sisters baby to raise as her own. She was mature and a likable character. Even though the hero, Daniel, was the typical man whore he was likable in the first part of the book. I just wish his escapades early on would have been written in a more unique way. He was the same exact playboy character I have read about a million times. Same exact ways of using women, same lines and everything. But it seemed him meeting Quincy changed him and he was very sweet with her. They were building a strong bond. Until the last part of the book where he acted like an ass. Of course there has to be some type of “drama” between the couple and I found the way he treated her to be inconsistent to his behavior toward her months previously. I also found the “make up” to come WAY to easily after the crap he pulled. Then the whole ending w/ the baby was much to cheesy for me. The entire ending between ALL the characters was much to cheesy! I really did like the 1st part of this book (minus the description of Daniels playboy ways being much to predictable). Still worth a listen for Audible Escape! NARRATORS: Joe Arden was fantastic as always! I adored his Spanish accent w/ his mothers voice and the Spanish speaking parts. Simone Lewis was good except she spoke much to slow. It was easy to fix by speeding the narration to 1.2 but then I’d have to change it back to 1.0 for Joe. Simone took long pauses much to often. Other than that she was really good!

SO MUCH MORE THAN I EXPECTED!!!

This book had a beautiful story wrapped up in it's cover! I really didn't expect it to be as good as it was and I'm pleasantly surprised at how it made me feel.

Pretty good

I like sports story’s so this had my attention, I enjoyed the story but the voices are only ok.. and I love parts of the main characters but there are for sure parts that don’t mesh for me. Over all it was a cute little story.

Family man

Loved this book and love this series! Can't wait to listen to the rest. The narrators were great and did an amazing job with the main characters as well as well as the side characters. There is a lot more to this series than it being a sports romance. The author tackles some pretty serious topics that are common place in relationships and does a fantastic job writing about them. Quincy and Daniel's story is very believable and sets a good example on how to be adults and face tough situations life can throw at you. Daniel comes from a big family and is more of a family man than even he believes he can be. However, he has reservations thanks to his dad and never keeps a girl around for more than one night. Quincy on the other hand has practically no one and her circle just got smaller and a lot more complicated. The tu need each other more than they realize but any good relationship is made stronger if the base is made off of friendship. But will these two stay in the friend zone or will they become more? This was a great book and I really enjoyed listening to the audio. I highly recommend this book and I'll be listening to the rest next!
