Publisher's Summary

He didn't kiss me back like a gentleman. No, Derek Price slammed my back into the front door. A beast off his leash.

Emily Stanton's perfect life just became a disaster. She has a trust fund brother looking for a handout, a father who is more board member than dad, and a mother who thinks she should give up on this whole billionaire CEO thing and meet a man with a pre-nup and a yacht.

Oh, and then there's that "misunderstanding" with law enforcement witnessed by Miami's paparazzi. Now her billion-dollar deal is on the line, and there's a naked man in her bathtub who claims he's going to make all her problems disappear.

Charming - and happy to bend the rules when necessary - Derek Price has made a living polishing the tarnished images of the rich and famous. He's never lost, and he never takes clients to bed. Until the dazzling Emily. Derek promised her a win and offered up a lifetime supply of orgasms as part of the deal. But if he can't stop her enemies, he'll end up losing much more than he bargained for.

Author Notes: An enemies-to-allies-to-lovers workplace romcom with a meet-nude, four lady billionaire BFFs, a hero whose many talents include styling hair and picking pockets, the best dang drag queen brunch in Miami, and a shameless romance novelist cameo.

A Lucy Score Story ruined by Narration

The narration was smarmy, by both narrators. Made me cringe at their efforts to be what? Funny? Sexy? Wealthy? They just over-acted every sentence. His female voice was insulting to strong women.
I like this author, bit didn't get past 3 chapters and I left the room for one.

A great start to a fun series

Such a good book. I fell in love with Derek and his cocky attitude. Talk about a man with confidence, yes please.
Emily was such a fun leading lady. She is smart, beautiful and wickedly loyal. Add in their crazy group of fun friends and you have a knock out of a start for this series. Well done Lucy, you hit it out of the ball park.

Loved the characters and the story!

I loved the audiobook of Emily and Derek's story and have listened to it a few times.❤️ They are a great match and I found myself hoping they'd get together.
The characters were well developed and the story and plot were wonderful. It's always more fun when I'm not able to guess the entire plot by the 3rd or 7th, chapter.
One of my favorite characters is Emily's assistant Jane, who was a hoot! She was a perfect addition to this wonderful book along with Emily's group of friends. 😍

A fun listen

This series of books is just so much fun to listen to. I love the camaraderie and friendship between these four women and watching the shenanigans that they get into together.

Just so cringeworthy

I was in the verge of quitting this one sooooo many times. I am actually embarrassed that I kept listening Derek is such an a-hole in the beginning and Emily is a doormat. Not a fan of Stephen Dexter but this narration was particularly bad. Terrible brutish accent, truly unlistenable. The last. Quarter of the book where he transforms into a good guy hero is so overwrought I was either rolling my eyes or cringing when he narrated. His narration made some of the sexy scenes awkward to listen to.

Besides his narration the story was choppy with what seemed like gratuitous scenes with her girlfriends and neighbors. Too over the top to be entertaining.

On the good side- I loved Jane. She was the best thing about the book and I might try a story featuring her. I will not read on to hear about Daisy and Luna. Both were obnoxious and the voice and character of Luna was hard to take.

I have really like other Lucy Score listens even though I wish she would’ve emplacement Stephen. Won’t finish this series but may try something else by her.

Just Okay

It took me awhile to get into this book because it it had so many lulls in the story. Some parts were boring and predictable bright side it did have some funny bits :-) . The audible performance was pretty decent.

Need to read

Not much I can say other than Lucy Score rocks the story and the Narrators knocked it out of the park. Billionaire and fixer butt heads, fall into love, add espionage, entitlement, science and a stun gun toting assistant guard = A Fun and entertaining story.

Started good but boring from the middle

The first chapters were very good, even funny. But from the middle of it, it became nagging, no mistory, nothing new, all chapters became an adore story for a woman that has no doubt or mistakes

Someone Should Have Told Me!

Lucy Score and her books are some kind of wonderful! This is only my third book (OK, IN A WEEK) by Lucy and I must admit, I’m auddicted! My ears tingle just knowing I’ve secured another crazy good book by my new favorite author. This entire cast of characters (even the menagerie of animals) was wonderful and I can’t recommend The Price of Scandal or Lucy Score more.

Great ebook and even better audiobook

I read the ebook first and then had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook. Both Natalie Duke and Stephen Dexter are so amazing as the narrators. I loved Stephen Dexter's light English accent and they infused humor into their roles. So. much. FUN!

As for the book, this was a great start to the 4 book series and in fact, the other 3 books were also so much fun and really did an awesome job building a fun world that follows the 4 brilliant and beautiful women billionaires.

There are many reasons why this is worth the read or listen- first of all, the humor- I laughed a lot. Not only are the people awesome but the animals added to the fun. There's so much personality in this book! Emily is awesome- i loved reading about her love of science and as someone who also loves science, her nerdiness just makes me happy. Derek, oh Derek. He's amazing- we need more men who are so comfortable with their own, ahem, body. And the other women- the loyal, love, heart and humor. I NEED A BOOK FOR JANE. Please?

Very funny

Being English, Stephen Dexters accent took a few chapters to get used too, but I am glad I stuck with it. Great fun.
