A Hilarious and Unconventional Romance!
Asher Black is not my typical read/listen. I actually don't think that I have ever read a mafia book/romance. I'm so happy that I took the chance though to discover this new to me author!
This was a really entertaining audiobook and the heroine had me laughing throughout most of the book. Lucy's inner monologue and her back and forth banter with Asher was fantastic. Throw in the whole fake fiance trope and this was an awesome debut novel. Even though there are some heavier and more serious moments in the book, Lucy and Asher's interactions and chemistry kept it more lighthearted and playful. Readers/listeners may find a few parts of the story a little over the top, but for me it just made it more fun. This is my first time listening to the narrator, Lacy Laurel. I thought that she did a great job as Lucy and I felt her performance was perfect for the character.
I didn't find the book to be super mafia heavy and though the overall pacing was fine, I felt like the end was a little rushed/abrupt. I would have loved to have an epilogue as well as Asher's POV, but overall, this was a really enjoyable book and I look forward to reading/listening to more by this author.

Hilarious and Hot
This audio was laugh out loud funny. The story of a young, very smart, attractive woman forced into a situation with an Alpha mobster due to her own actions. The internal ramblings of her mind quite often had me laughing out loud. I did find that if I was interrupted at all I would have to go back in the Audio because I wasn’t sure if she was speaking to herself or if she was in a two sided conversation. Asher Black was dark and brooding but he also was protective, intuitive, and sexy as sin. The narrator has a very distinct cadence to her voice which was distracting for me and did little to help the story. If you’re looking for a quick witted listen, this audio is for you.
