Summary

A standalone romance from the New York Times best-selling author of Archer's Voice.
Kira Dallaire is desperate. Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant 22-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan - possibly her most outrageous idea yet.
Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope. Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard - a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition that's impossible to refuse.
What begins as a temporary business arrangement soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily ever after. As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for...even your very own heart.

Wow, what a disappointment

What happened to the 5 star master story teller? Mia Sheridan is one of my absolute new favorites but this book was hugely disappointing. I've read/listened to almost all of her other books up to now and LOVED every one of them. This one was SO repetitive, I wanted to scream and stop half way through. I kept asking myself - was this truly by Mia Sheridan?!! It was your typical, cookie cutter, "woe is me, I'm not staying, so I can't get involved" dialog over & over & OVER!.I get it already!!! It's like beating a dead horse every other minute. And they didn't have sex until towards the end, which then became tedious to the story. Normally, when I get to the end of one of her books, I bask in the warm fuzzies and then go through withdrawals, missing the characters. This one? Not so much.

Still, I'm waiting for her next book, Midnight Lily, to go audible so I hope she hasn't sunk to the level of mediocre, formulaic, repetitive, dime-a-dozen romance authors. And I hope she doesn't keep using Maxine Mitchell as narrator because she over emphasizes all her words and it's extremely distracting and annoying. Nobody talks like that in real life so why ruin a good story by talking weird? Joe Arden was excellent as the male voice, otherwise it would have been a total loss.

A TEMPESTUOUS JOURNEY THAT ENDED SO BEAUTIFULLY

Kira has come from a privileged family but her powerful Father is arrogant, dictatorial, cold and very manipulative and Kira found out his true motives when she walked in on her Fiancé in a very compromising position and understandably she called off the Wedding. But, when her Father demanded that she was to go through with the union, Kira had had enough and disappeared overseas for a year under a cloud of negative tabloid gossip. Now she's back and refuses to agree to her Father's plans for her future so unfortunately she's now sleeping in her car and is just about penniless. Kira's only hope is her inheritance but sadly she can't touch it - that is unless she gets married...... and then fate steps in and she overhears a very interesting conversation that gives her a crazy impulsive idea.

Grayson, an ex Con, was left the now struggling Vineyard by his late Father and he's had to lay people off, cut back and sell valuables - and, to make matters worse, he's just been turned down for a loan so his prospects, and future, are looking bleak. That is until a fiery temptress proposes a mutually beneficial business deal that he just can't refuse - a marriage in name only, separated after two months and divorced within the year and for that he'd receive half of Kira's inheritance. What could possibly go wrong?...... well, as it turns out, plenty.

These two loveable characters disliked and annoyed the Hell out of each other right from the start - both choosing to ignore the sizzles that they feel whenever they touch. There's witty and quick witted banter between them as Grayson calls Kira a Witch and Kira labels him as a Dragon. He is a handsome, sexy Playboy who ruthlessly told Kira on their first meeting that she's 'not his type' and thought she was a spoilt privileged Princess (which was far from the truth). They both have/had Daddy issues and Grayson's childhood was heartbreaking, added to that, his brother stole and married Grayson's girlfriend whilst he was helpless Prison. So they weren't relationship material, it's certainly not a match made in Heaven and it had an expiry date from the start...... and yet slowly these two enemies learnt to trust one another, lean on each other and they dared to dream...... until secrets were uncovered that resurrected the impenetrable wall around Grayson's heart once more.

Worth a credit? Yes and it's definitely worth 5 stars too because I just didn't want to stop listening to this very addictive and enjoyable story and when I absolutely had to press the 'pause' or 'stop' buttons then I just couldn't wait to get back to it. Alternate POV's, great narration, a slow to develop romance that had it's fair share of pitfalls, a few secondary characters and a couple of sweet, tender and passionate sex scenes.
