Publisher's Summary

Rule number one: Don't fall for jerks. Rule number two: Don't fall for your best friend's brother. Oops. Too late.

I'm Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I'm anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men. You know the ones I'm talking about. The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true. The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships. I'm talking about the jerks. The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad.

After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I'd learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways. But, let's be real here, love is never that easy. Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved.

Aussie accent. Tanned skin. Muscular, surfer bod. Gorgeous brown eyes. And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees. Oh, did I mention that he's also my best friend's brother?

Yeah. This story, my story, it's a real doozy you guys.

The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen - the biggest jerk of all.

Loved it!

Wow. Honestly, that was the first thing that came to mind once I finished this audiobook. The narration was amazing, and the way the story was structured was really new and fun to listen to. One thing I will tell you about this book... you need to have access to the next one if you start this. Why? Because, of course, it ends on a cliffhanger! If you are totally ready to listen to the series or even just the next book (because that is literally the last book anyway), this is a book I would definitely recommend. This book brought tears to my eyes! It will definitely take you on a ride of emotions and will probably hit you in the face once you have finished reading it. But again, I would still recommend this book. If you have read the blurb to this book and think you may like it, give it a go! I hope you decide to. Enjoy!

It had such potential

I'm sorry to write this review. I really really wanted to like this book, and I kept listening to it hoping that I was wrong, but I wasn't.
How excited was I to buy a book about an Aussie surfer, being that I'm an Aussie who lives in a surfing based State? How exciting that the guy wasn't some 20 something idiot, but an 30ish dude that had lots of potential. How awesome that the main girl was a sarcastic, funny, willing try anything heroine. All big ticks in my opinion. I was on holidays, and awaiting a great feel good book.
First of all, two of the characters were Australian. We had an American narrator, and whilst she tried really hard to master our obnoxious twang, she failed, miserably. I tried really hard to ignore her butchering our accent, but I just couldn't get past it. I'm really sorry. And it was because I was interested in the story so much that I kept on keeping on to hear the story out. Unfortunately, it was another one of those "if these people just spoke to each other, none of this would have fallen apart" type scenarios. One huge over-reaction and bam, book ended, please buy next one. I'm really sorry to say this, but maybe if it had been dual narrated, maybe even had three narrators, I could have handled the predictable storyline better. I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn't get past those issues. Won't stop me from trying the author again though.

Enjoyable book

As with other Max Monroe books, I thoroughly enjoyed this one too. I did think there would be more laugh out loud moments but the humor that is there is great. I can't tell if the way this ended book 2 will pick up. I am hoping so because I need that ending. Charlotte North's narration was great.

Unlucky Lucky

After years of dating jerks Lucky decided it was time for a break, then in walk Ollie, and before long Lucky was falling again.....for a jerk!

This story held my attention from beginning to end. Charlotte did a wonderful job narrating both male and female roles, but after a while her laughs, snorts, and chuckles became too much but in no way took away from the story.

I found myself rooting for Lucky then wanting to shake her for always running from her issues instead of facing them head on, but I understood her reason and my heart broke for her.

The ending is a cliffhanger, but at least the second install is already out. Can’t wait to see if Ollie and Lucky get their happy ending. Definitely worth a credit

drop off...

Narrator was annoying and laughed too much at the authors jokes, and story just dropped off out of nowhere and dragged on at other points.

Disappointed

The narrator was kind of annoying by chuckling entirely too much and making a lot of huffing noises. The story was a lot of build up only for it to randomly en for a stupid reason.

Wow!

I listen to a ton of audio books and this narration was fantastic! It was so natural!
The little laughs, the sighs, the sniffles, the Australian accent and change of tone to do the male voices....ugh! it was simply fantastic!
Great job with the narration, Charlotte North and Great story, Max Monroe!
As if I haven't loved every Max Monroe book... this one was another winner!
Now, to jump directly into Ollie's story!

Where is book 2???

This is one of the best audiobooks out there. Then narration is nothing short of fantastic, the story is brilliant and overall I give it 10 out of 10 or in this case five out of 5 lol.

My only big and I do mean BIG gripe is that book 2 does not seem to be available on audible UK or even audible.com, Book 1 stops midway, it literally leave you hanging off a cliff. So not to be able to get book 2 ruins it quite frankly. I am seriously hoping that this is going to be remedied and fast! LOL
