They agreed on three months... but their love knew no boundaries.
Jack McLachlan is a winemaking magnate and easily one of Australia's most eligible bachelors. His success and wealth makes him no stranger to the complications of romantic relationships and that's why he goes to extreme measures to avoid the hassle.

No real names.
It's his game and his rules. He's content to play as usual, but when Laurelyn Prescott enters his life, his strategy must change because this player is like none he's ever encountered. His world is turned on its head after he begins a three month affair with the beautiful American musician. Nothing goes according to plan and as he breaks more and more of his own rules for her, she's exceptionally close to becoming something he never thought possible. His ultimate game changer.

Well written story - patchy narration
Yes - if they liked 50SOG or the Crossfire series.
Laurelyn - I love her southern sass.
Bunny Warren - yes she did an excellent job of narration IMO. Both her Laurelyn and Jack were believable. But as a Brit I'm no authority on Southern accents and I didn't find her Australian ones too off the mark.
Robert Black was not such an easy listen for me. His Australian accents weren't great, but I could live with that. It was his female characters that I struggled with. Others have commented that he sounded like a transvestite and I'd have to agree to some extent.
Actually no. I needed a few breaks - it was a bit emotionally intense at times.
