Publisher's Summary

It was an innocent mistake...All workaholic real estate broker Addison Andrews wanted was one night of pleasure, and picking the right guy was no different than shopping from a catalog, thanks to the dating app on her phone. His name was Wilder, and his profile was blank - just a sexy picture of a man who promised every wicked intention of a one-night stand.

The agreement was simple. One night. No last names. But the second their bodies melded together in the sheets of their posh Manhattan hotel room, there was no denying they fit together like two pieces of a broken puzzle. There's just one problem...Addison unknowingly swiped right on the one man she wasn't supposed to be with - her new stepbrother. All it takes is one bite of forbidden fruit to become addicted, but being with him has major consequences for their entire family. And if anyone found out about them, the career she worked so hard to build would crumble to the ground.

But Wilder Van Cleef doesn't care about the possibility of a scandal. He wants her, and he's willing to do whatever it takes.

Please note: This is a standalone, full-length romance novel with no cliffhanger.

horrible narration

I have listened to over 400 audio books. The male narrator was fine but the female was horrible. She ruined my listen especially when attempting to sound like the male character. I kept thinking about stopping and returning for credit but forced myself to finish since the story was good. I can see now how how easily the wrong narrator can kill any hopes for a good listening experience even if the story is good.

Awful

I can't believe anyone actually listened to this narration before it was published. KM's portrayal of Wilder sounds just like the creepy, irritating voice of Jack Hide in the Fifty Shades of Gray series. It totally ruined the story. There was no way I could get into his character. I just wanted him to stop talking...Then there was the Kentucky accent of the mother. Aughhh. I couldn't take it . I plan on returning this and checking the book out from the library.

Really Lame.

This book had a superficial storyline. I gagged and rolled my eyes the whole way through. Not worth the read.

Ludicrous dilemma!

Good book except for the horror of a problem that is so NOT a problem! I can think of a lot of options that could have accomplished the same thing without being stupid!

awful

liked other things from this author but this was just so far fetched it wasn’t even remotely enjoyable from the “instant” falling in love to the point it interrupted their lives when they knew each other less than 6 months to the issues with the parents...disappointed... might have been somewhat believable as a preteen romance IFFFFF the characters where not GROWN ADULTS

I'll read the rest of this series

Katie McAble is not my favorite narrator. her male voices all sound short and condescending. While I enjoyed Thomas Fawley he didn't narrate that much of the book so there's not enough reason to listen to the rest of the series.

Interesting start; decent narration!

Would you listen to Never Kiss a Stranger again? Why?

Probably not because I didn't like how the big issue kept them apart or how they chose to deal with it overall.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Their desire to have a non-emotional physical connection only was the most interesting aspect to me. I was curious to see how that was going to change. The least interesting part for me was the time they spent trying to avoid each other which began at roughly 57% into the novel.

What does Thomas Fawley and Katie McAble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's always interesting to hear how narrators bring personalities on the page to life. I thought both did well with this as well as doing both genders believably, although I felt Katie McAble was over emoting at times. Thomas Fawley was near perfect with his narration, and I tended to prefer Wilder's POV chapters more than Addison's for that reason.

Narrator ratings:
Katie McAble ★★★☆☆
Thomas Fawley ★★★★☆

BTW - I listened to a sample of book 2 in this Never series. I'm bummed that Katie McAble's Southern accent for Beau is so exaggerated and awful that I don't think I could listen to an entire audiobook of that. She has a nice voice overall but seems to have had trouble not going overboard with her take on Beau which is a shame.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Swipe right. You won't regret it!

Any additional comments?

This was the first novel of Winter Renshaw that I've read, and it started off very strong. It had an interesting premise to me, and I liked how their attraction broke down their resistance to becoming a true couple. But then the book kind of derailed to me once the hammer slammed down on Addison and Wilder.

Overall, it wasn't a bad love story, but it didn't go the full distance and meet my expectations well enough to be considered a great story.

SPOILER- SPOILER -SPOILER COMMENT ALERT- I actually felt bad for his dad and her mom when her mom provided the ultimate solution for Wilder and Addison to be together again.

Currently, the only other Winter Renshaw unread audiobook I own is ROYAL. I'm happy to give that one a try and am hoping that one has a more satisfying story from beginning to end.

I cried

Let me explain the 4 star performance rating. Katie McAble was great as Addison. Thomas Fawley did not match the character. He sounded fresh out of college and not the urbane Wilder.

Second, I loved this book. Renshaw pulled me into the story. I also enjoyed the lack of easy, logistical results. Get it!

Nice story but male voice unconvincing in this role

It was overall a nice story, I enjoyed those chapters read by Katie McAble’s. I could not connect to Thomas Fawley’s voice in this role. I’m sure he would be fine at voicing other genres but for me his voice is much too feminine to convincingly pull off the male romantic lead.

Loved go pieces!

I totally loved the hero and heroine in this one! The hero was a sexy, filthy dirty talker and I loved it. Now I need to read the rest of the books! The makle narrator did an excellent job on this one.
