Young, gorgeous, and the owner of a major conglomerate that just keeps growing, he is everything that money-hungry socialites would want in a trophy husband. He just doesn't want to be one.

A sensational and engaging romance

Bancroft delivers excellently on a short and sweet romance adventure that ticks all the right boxes. We're provided with a lovely portrayal of two interesting characters (Mary and Alex) who are thrust together and agree to play the part of a loving couple for the outside world. Before long of course, sparks begin to fly and the narrative carries you along on a fun journey that features sharp dialogue, great plot and a heap of enjoyable adventure. The story is really well told so you feel you can get lost in this tale and enjoy the wish fulfilment that Mary is experiencing as she gets swept into a millionaire lifestyle.

It was a nice touch having this audiobook read by a female (Jodi Stapler) which I felt helps the listener connect with the female protagonist and engage with the book in a new way. Stapler does an excellent performance, giving great pace and not over acting during romantic moments in the text.

Be sure to give this one a listen and you won't regret it!

Riverting Romance Read!

This billionaire romance tale was a really fun and enjoyable listen. The story is full of passion, tension and thrills as you are drawn into Alex and Mary's worlds.

The characters that Ms Bancroft has created are well-rounded and believable with Mary in particular standing out. She has great depth to her and the author does a tremendous job of conveying how confused and excited she must be by meeting this billionaire.

The book is one those that is impossible to stop listening to and has a great pace to it. Furthermore, the narrator is excellent as she is engaging and has a great voice for romance stories.

Highly recommended for anyone looking for a little shot of romance in there life and I look forward to seeing what the author produces next!
