Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Sophie Abbott – She is a klutz and seems to always make a mess of things. She is wearing a short thin red dress with no panties to a benefit auction, having forgotten she would be filling in at the auction on behalf of her boss’s pregnant wife. Sophie’s elderly father is on a mission to set her up with any man between the ages of 20 and 50. One of those men, nicknamed by her friends as ‘Dr. Handsy Perv’, was at the benefit.
The Hero: Camden Cox – he is a successful real estate developer on the cusp of the biggest development deal of his life when one of the investors is involved in a scandal. He needs to get a new investor as soon as he can so his deal doesn’t go under. He was determined never to get married after watching his parents marriage fall apart, though he never had a problem finding women.
The Story: Sophie tried to get away from Dr. Handsy Perv and ended up in an even worse situation, which was pretty standard for her. She ended up hanging from a second floor balcony on a breezy night where Camden found her. Sophie knew Camden from her past, but he has no recollection of who she is.
Days later Camden can’t seem to get Sophie off his mind, but is determined to get a meeting with Shepard Calloway to try to talk him into his development deal. Sophie just happens to be the assistant to Mr. Calloway and one of her three best friends, Everly is married to Calloway. They all plan to go to Vegas since Mr. Calloway has to be there over the weekend, and Everly wanted her friends as company.
This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Savannah Peachwood and Aiden Snow, two of my all time favorite narrators. Savannah has a soft feminine voice with a pleasing tone and sounds very age appropriate for a young professional. Aiden Snow has a deep sensual voice which is perfect for any romantic Hero.
The story was good. I like the fact that Camden was Sophie’s childhood bully and that he didn’t remember her at first. I always love the married in Vegas trope, so that was another plus. These characters were both very likable and I enjoyed the book quite a bit. The other books in this series look great as well. I will be looking into those!
