I really liked this narrator. I'd been in a funk where I was not liking many narrators. But this one brought the characters to life!
This book is a 5 star re listen any day any time. I finished it in 1 day!

We all know that there are a lot of these types of storylines floating around... an arranged marriage of convenience with an end date which turns into the real thing - and they're usually quite predictable, easy-going, light and fun. And so was this listen... but there was so much more depth to the story which was expertly narrated by Sasha Dunbrooke who brought to life the cold-hearted sexy handsome Playboy Billionaire Reese who'd been hurt and devastated before so vowed he was never going to let a woman hurt him again.... until he got to know Merina. Sasha also breathed life into the strong-willed, feisty, independent and beautiful Merina as she fought for what she wanted.... which slowly changed from bricks and mortar to flesh and blood. Reese thought his only destiny was to become CEO but it turned out to be an empty lonely and cold place without love and without Merina.
An addictive can't stop listening to it story that started out being between rivals and enemies... but over shared time and kisses for the Share Holders and tabloids, slowly developed into the real thing. There were times when Reese forgot his promise and let the impenetrable walls around his heart fall for a time but unfortunately he was his own worst enemy because he just couldn't get past his past... and up went those walls again. Merina was unsuspecting and unaware of Reese's past... but slowly the secrets of his past were revealed and rather than run she clung on to the hope that somehow she would conquer his demons and have it all.... but unfortunately it wasn't going to be that easy.
A really entertaining listen, great banter, humor, passion, seismic chemistry and toe curling sex... however it wasn't without some heartache and pain. This was a good story, but I'm sure what notched it up a degree was the awesome narration. Dual POV's and of course there's a wonderful HEA eventually waiting for us romantics to sigh over.
Worth a credit? I love bad boy Billionaires and the strong women who infiltrate their lofty indulgent lives and tame them so I was expecting to enjoy an entertaining four star listen.... however the characters - especially the emotionally broken Reese, the situations this doomed couple found themselves caught up in and the awesome narration easily brought it into the five star very creditworthy rating.
