Publisher's Summary

Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light-heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care - Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.

Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance. Soon Reid finds himself in the fight of his life...winning Lucie's heart before she gives it to someone else.

Good story but bad narrator!!!!

I started this book and I have to say the story held my interest but the narrator did not. It's a light fun read and I thought the characters were pretty relevant with fun dialogue.
However, by the third chapter I was involved in the story but could not take the narrator anymore. Fielding reads with such little emotion that I found myself drifting off and having to rewind over and over. If I wasn't rewinding I was falling asleep.
So, I actually downloaded the kindle version and finished reading it on my own. It was cute and I'm glad I did especially because at the end there is an excerpt of the second book that continues another story of Vanessa and Jax (secondary characters in the first book-- "Rules of Entanglement "). That book was actually really good. I liked it even more.
I recommend to read!

Here They Go Again

There are some bright spots in this story about a physical therapist and an MMA fighter who was the best friend of her brother when she was a kid. She agrees to get his bum rotator cuff in shape for his title fight if he trains her to be a seductress so she can snag Dr McDreamy; the man of her dreams; at least on paper. So I'll put out my spoiler alert now; here's what I found lacking in this audio. Lucy's insecurities about her looks and Reid's back and forth about her and not being good enough for her, to wanting her so bad, to not being good enough for her got old after a few renditions. then there were the long drawn out sex scenes that were good but soon it became apparent that their purpose was to flesh out a novella into a full audiobook. This one displayed enough promise that I may take a chance on one more of this author's works; hopefully they will get better.

Good story, not BAD narration, but...

I loved the story, but the narration was OK, and there was some kind of back ground going on...it was SO distracting!! Drove me nutso, and so took away from the book, which was too bad because it's an excellent book.

Meh...

This book is probably much better read than listened to. The narrator is ok, she has a decent voice, however she has no emotion and I kept hearing background noise, planes, cars maybe? I honestly can't tell you much about the story because the narration was boring and distracting with the other noises.
3 stars is actually very generous.

Did anyone actually edit this recording?

I loved this book and the narration was great, but there was soooo much background noise I kept getting distracted. I heard airplanes, cars and numerous other sounds that really took away from the recording. Not the quality recording I have come to expect from my audio books.

Good Story!

I've been doing a group re read of this book and boy did I have a much better experience this go around! I had read this book before but didn't have the same experience that I'm having now. I now see what the hype was about this book. Sorry it took me this long Gina! I've read other books by Gina Maxwell but this one right here took me to the MAX!!!! It started off as your typical "hot guy" helps the "shy girl" land the "guy of her dreams" but it became so much more. Way more. Walls are torn down, insecurities are shown, Reid and Lucie confide things in each other that they've never told anyone else. They slowly start to fall in love and all was right in the world until.....it happens. Once it happens I was so done with Reid. One thing you can't do is take back words and in my opinion what he said to Lucie was a real low blow. Reid didn't redeem himself enough for me and I ended up disliking him at the end of the story. I also purchased audio narration and the narrator did a good job with bringing the story to life.

Nothing new here

This love story about Luci (a divorced physical therapist) and Reid (a MMA fighter) in Nevada was a repeat of much of what’s in the contemporary romance book. Almost all of the plot devices were too similar to so many other stories: long-time interests in big brother’s best friend + protective big brother, friend agrees to help other friend become love machine or sex pot, one no longer seeks love but only compatibility, and lil’, good girl and big, bad guy, down to the clichéd tribal tatoos. There were other common devices that I won’t share, since they would give away too much of the story. To add to this, the way the devices were used were also too similar. So, within an hour of listening to this story, I began to get bored and look forward to “getting it over with,” as in, the story ending. If you’re someone who hasn’t listened to enough stories with these devices, then this story might interest you more than it did me. It was all very predictable. There were also several attempts at humor or wittiness. They didn’t work for me.
And I’m really, really not a fan of guys who end most sentences spoken to women with “sweetheart,” “darling,” or “doll” spoken, not as an individualized endearment, but as a way to downsize or minimalize females. Reid might not have meant it that way, but his constant use of “sweetheart” only at particular times came across that way to me. It’s not like it was used during sex or some romantic scene. Other problems included the reason for Luci and Reid reestablishing their childhood friendship being all-but forgotten during the story. At one point, it seemed crucial to Reid, and then it was barely addressed in the story. Similarly, there wasn’t any attention given to Reid being a MMA fighter beyond referencing as a fact. And Reid’s attraction to Luci came out of nowhere and seemed to have no basis. So his affection for Luci all seemed more about his ego and jealousy, not love.
The author’s attempt to add depth to Reed fell flat and seemed to require too much effort; it was not believable. Likewise, Luci’s “change” was too fast and too easy, thereby making her come across as fake and that aspect of the storyline as false.

The narrator fulfilled the minimal level of acting techniques, but with little inflection or passion when it seemed most needed, expected or required. So she sounded bland or bored much of the time. She also had an audible breath sound between the end of a sentence and the start of a new one that was a little bit irritating at times, primarily due to its frequency. And there was some kind of weird growl or something in the background occasionally.

I liked that Luci was not a va-va-voom girl. And I liked the last 40 minutes, but they were not good enough to make up for the other lost minutes. And there’s an especially cheesy statement at the very end that almost ruins those good 40 minutes. The second best part about the book is that it was mercifully not long and, since it was so shallow, common, and predictable, it didn’t matter when I fast-forwarded during parts of the story. I didn’t miss a thing.

Better when read

I love this book but the background noise was a little annoying. I've read it before and I will read it again but not listen to it.
