Publisher's Summary

It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against him: the sexy bastard with a big...ego.

I thought I'd hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.

That is, until he sat next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He's a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me.

I thought I'd give him hell for one, long flight. I didn't expect to like him. I didn't expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me, too. Only in a way I didn't see coming.

If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can't manage. But I'm tempted to say yes. Because the real man beneath those perfect suits and that cool façade just might be the best thing that's ever happened to me. And I just might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart.

Let the battle begin....

Contains mature themes.

Really enjoyed this book

I have listened to the steam punk titles from this author so this genre was new for me. I really enjoyed the story line and it was well worth the listen...

Keep going

I almost turned it off in the first 5 minutes because it was cliché and embarrassing but I kept going and it got much better

I am obsessed with this series!! Outstanding!

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! If I loved book 1 of this series I am utterly obsessed with this one. Kristen Callihan has such a way with character development and chemistry, banter and storytelling that there is basically nothing I would change. The narration is spot on fantastic by both Rupert Channing and Charlotte North. It felt effortless to enjoy and become swept in the dynamic of these characters that I just didn't want it to end. I need more stories like these in my life!! ALL THE STARS!!

Swoon.....

4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a fun read! Managed was just as good as Idol. Oh how I enjoy Kristen Callihan writing. Her books always have great character’s with hot chemistry. I loved Sophie Darling aka “chatty girl” easy going personality, she was a breath of fresh air and Gabriel Scott aka “sunshine” was everything I thought he’d be after reading Idol. He definitely gives you a lot of swoon moments. So if your looking for a laid back, no drama, laugh out loud moments this is your book!


Audiobook review: Charlotte North and Rupert Channing did a fantastic job Narrating! 5 stars to both of them.

another good story

I would recommend this book. plot was good, tension was believable, characters are rich with back story and emotion. the man who narrated though. his voice for other male characters and some of the other female characters didn't feel believable, unless the band is the village people.

My Favorite

Of the four books this is my favorite. I loved the performances and have listened to this almost as many times as I've read the book.

I loved this book even more with narration!

I read this book when it was published several years ago, and I loved it. When I saw that it had been released as an audiobook, I had to listen to it, and I was not disappointed. Rupert Channing and Charlotte North did a great job with the narration, and Kristen Callahan wrote a great book and a wonderful series.

Great Series

Wow! Loved, loved all the characters. Not sure which book in this series I liked the most. This was really good, no great. I want to listen to this book again right now which I have never done. But I think I will listen to the series all over again. Rare for me, especially immediately after the first time. Yes, I am doing it because it was that good. Great to do in between earning more credits.

Hmmmmm

I enjoy this author but something just felt off. I can’t tell you if it’s the story or the narrator. I couldn’t wait for the audible to be over. I had high hopes for this character and enjoyed some of the story. I am going to have to read the book to see if my opinion differs. All I can say is you hear a name of endearment a lot!!! It personally drove me crazy.

Loved the French Kiss book ends!

This was a great story, a little on the slow burn side but MAN did they make up for it in the end. Sophie and Gabriel are like the exact opposite of my usual favorite h/H dichotomy: I usually like bookish uptight heroines and heroes who break them out of their shell. Well this is the opposite! We have a bubbly effusive heroine who MIGHT have gotten on my nerves but she has some baggage and history that gave her more depth than her candy cane facade. I loved Gabriel - talk about a hero with depth. Silent waters and all that. I especially loved the “need you to sleep” trope and Gabriel’s flight phobia meet cute (very a’la French Kiss - 90s Meg Ryan movie, check it out!). Over all, loved the book!
