The Hero(s): Hunter Fitzpatrick – one of the heirs to the fourth richest man in the country and CEO of Royal Pipelines. Hunter is the playboy black sheep of the family. He needs his inheritance since he thinks he is not good at anything or able to make a living for himself. He thinks about sex all the time and often acts like a unruly teenager, though he is in college.
The heroine: Sailor Brennen – good girl, tomboy, daughter of the Mob fixer and Hitman Troy Brennen and his wife Sparrow. Sailor is training for the olympics in Archery and focused on only that.
The Love Story: After a recording of an orgy goes viral online, Hunter’s father threatens to cut him off if he doesn’t toe the line. Toeing the line involves working at his father’s office, going to college and abstaining from sex and alcohol. He had to live with good girl Sailor Brennen while she made sure he was being good for six months.
At first I thought this wasn’t quite as good as some of the L.J. Shen books I have read lately, I thought Hunter was a bit moronic and juvenile. However, as the story went along, I discovered I liked the story more and more. Hunter has a difficult relationship with his family and is constantly put down and shut down by them.
I found myself feeling for him and wanting to smack his father, brother and even mother upside the head. I cheered when Sailor spoke up for him and I thought the romance was terrific and super steamy. Hunter has a filthy mouth and quick wit.
As for the narration, it was absolutely terrific! The narrators Virginia Rose and Jason Clarke were both terrific. Jason Clarke had a beautifully deep voice which is what is needed for a hot muscular Hero. I think there was either a second male narrator for Hunter’s brother Cillian (Kill from “The Villain”). Virginia Rose did the female voice with the Boston Accent perfectly. I was so pleased.
