Publisher's Summary

Jolie Louis is a smart girl. She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea. He's a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can't get rid of. Sadly, that's also the reason she can't stay away from him. Well, that and the fact that they're roommates.

Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse: Be his fake girlfriend and live for free for the rest of the semester. She tells herself that she can handle it. He's just the boy she saved 10 years ago, right? Wrong. So very wrong. He is a man now, and she is his captive, heart, body, and soul....

✫✫ 3 Stars ✫✫

This is a 50/50 book for me. I like 50% of the story! I love a friends to lovers story, I really enjoyed most of the sexy scenes and I have to say I love that the "pretend" didn't last long. On the other hand, I rolled my eyes A LOT during this short 3 hours book. It mostly felt a little hokey to me but really I should not expect more from a short story since there isn't much background build up to help feel the story.

The narration was good. Both narrators did a great job but I did notice that she sounds like a teenager and he sounds like a 30-40 year old man, that was a little off putting but that was casting and no reflection on either of their narration skills.

A Quick Read that hits the Spot!!

I’m not much into Novellas but I honestly enjoyed this one.
In true LJ Shen fashion, she packs the heat and the passion in this enjoyable friends to Lovers romance.
I listened to this on audio and I honestly felt this was one of Joe Arden’s best performances. His voice was husky and deep and absolutely on point.
This was the first time I listened to Narrator, Tessa Ellory and I highly enjoyed her sweet southern accent and soft spoken voice.
Great narration and a Great Listen!!

Don't let the length fool you!

Just because this is a short one, it does not take away from the punch that LJ Shen is able to put into it. This gem is a fully, well developed story and does not give you that rushed feeling. Meet childhood friends Jolie and Sage. As they grow up, Sage becomes the football star he is always meant to be and Jolie remains his rock through his life. When his friend decides he would like to date Jolie, all things change, and we get the taste of the hotholes that LJ Shen is famous for. This short is full of sexual chemistry, a little angst and characters that you can't help but fall for. She even gives us a glimpse into the future with an unbelievable epilogue. Cannot wait to see where she goes with this!

I love that Shen brought this to audio with Joe Arden and Tessa Ellory. Joe is a wonderful narrator and he brought Sage's attitude and vulnerabilities to life with his voice. This is my first encounter with Tessa Ellory and she has that perfect new adult voice for Jolie, and she hyped up the angst in the right places making you feel each insecurity Jolie had. Loved this!

OK novella

This was OK for a novella. I was hoping for something longer and more involved like Tyed, which I love. The narration was really good. Joe Arden is one of my favorite narrators.

Sweet

Loved both the narrators. So hot, just perfection! The story kept me interested and entertained. It is one I will enjoy again and again just to hear those sexy voices. Just wish the author did not make her so indecisive when she finally gets her dream. Author should have written her stronger with something else to fill pages. Wish it was longer.

AUUUGGH! BORING...WHERES THE<br /> STORY?

Such a disappointment! After enjoying Sinners of Saints series, I have a hard time believing this is the same author. Shallow characters, pointless sex , what is the conflict? character arch? antagonist? A short lot of nothing! yeah returning this one.

Awesome and quick listen.

This was a great, fast listen. The narration was really well done and the story was interesting. Would have loved it if it had been a full-length novel!

sort of a disappoint...

I love Joe Arden but that was it. Not a great story or narration to me other than Joe. But this is an earlier book. Tessa did nothing for me. She's no Andi A.

Incredibly sweet and entertaining

Oh em gee! I loved bed this book! It was just about the perfect sports romance! Football and best friends! The characters were so well developed and the story just sucks you in.
The narrators did such a good job! Especially Tessa with that slight southern accent!! Loved everything about it! Will definitely listen to it again!
