Publisher's Summary

Meet Lauren Halsted.
It's all the little things - the action plans, the long-kept promises - that started falling apart when my life slipped into controlled chaos. After I fell ass over elbow into Matthew Walsh's arms, I couldn't decide whether I wanted to run screaming or rip his pants off, and most days I wanted a little of both. If I was being honest with myself, it was rip his pants off, ride him like a workhorse, and then run screaming.
Meet Matthew Walsh.
A rebellious streak ran through Lauren Halsted. It was fierce and unrelentingly beautiful, and she wasn't letting anyone tell her what to do - unless, of course, she was naked. She wasn't looking for me, and I sure as shit wasn't looking for her, but we found each other anyway, and now we were locked in a battle of wills, waiting for the other to blink.

Nope - I hated him, instantly

Sorry, I didn’t even make it past chapter 2. His first thought when he saw her (a beautiful, successful and intellegent woman), was he that he wanted to... talk to her? Ha! Kiss her? Nope. Have sex with her? Nuh-uh. He fantasised about spanking her.
Just... NO. I am not a prude, but if a guy’s basic and primary response is to hurt/dominate a woman, that is NOT sexy or romantic.

Smart, funny and steamy love story. Loved it!

Smart, funny and steamy love story. I love 2 narrators in a love story and know the different points of view of each main character.

Matthew and Lauren

Honestly, I have never been more annoyed with a main character than I was with Lauren. She spent 90% of the book pushing Matthew away and making him feel bad. For the first time in a long time, I kind of wished that they didn't end up together. He deserved someone that wouldn't run away every time things got a little difficult. However, I did enjoy the complicated family dynamic.

Christian Fox is one of my favorite narrators and Lucy Rivers did a wonderful job as well

A good listen, but be prepared to be frustrated.

Coulda been awesome

I'm so angry with Lauren that I couldn't enjoy the ending. It took her way too long to stop hurting Matthew and it took him too long to stop letting her do it. Too bad. The writing style is superb, the narrator skilled. I just couldn't stop hating the idiotic female. CS

By all the books are mine! on 16-09-2016

Brilliant

I have loved this book for quite a long time and have reread countless times.
I decided to try the audiobook not really expecting much.
Wow, what a revelation! This adds a whole new dimension to my understanding of the book.
It truly brings the story to life.
Both Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox are perfect. Whatever they are being paid, it is not enough!!
I am a full convert to audiobooks. Fabulous💕

Loved it!

Hot, sweet, funny & angsty, this first instalment of the Walsh family series is 100% enjoyable, and delivered beautifully by the fantastic narrators.
