Spending time with Ari starts cracking the hard shell that Rafe has built around his heart, but he denies the affect she has on him until it's too late to stop the inevitable conclusion that their relationship is headed for. Rafe once believed in happily ever after, coming from a large Italian family. He's got the Midas touch, since every endeavor he tries turns to gold. That all ends when his wife walks out the door and leaves him blindsided. His devastation quickly turns to steel when he decides no woman will fool him again. From that point on he treats relationships as nothing more than business transactions where both party's come out mutually benefited.
Just when Ari has sunk to the lowest she's ever been she finds an ad in the paper announcing a job that's too good to be true. It turns out she's right. She makes it through the intense rounds of interviews only to find out the job is for a mistress to the powerful Rafe Palazzo, owner of Palazzo Enterprises. Rafe gives her a day to think about whether she wants the position or not, and she's sent on her way, only to find out her mother's near-terminal position has taken a turn for the worse. Her mom's only in the hospital because Ari messed up, and her mother's the one who paid the price. Is Rafe her savior, or will he take her with him straight to the depths of hell?

There are better books to spend a credit on
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I think this book had potential, it needed a stronger and less predictable story line.
Saskia had a nice tone, I am not sure she did the Raf's character any justice.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Saskia Maarleveld?

WOW! So good that I am upset volume 2 is not out..
I really like this book so so much... I was really upset at the end, b/c I just knew volume 2 wasn't out. I usually wait until at least 2 book in a series are out before I get it... But I took a chance and I loved this. Now I am left wanting more...
Rafe was HOT! Ari was so cute on how she tried to be all serious but completely gave in to Rafe. I liked Rafe's family too. His sister were a hoot! Great Great book... will leave you wanting more... Cliffhanger ending!!! BEWARE!!!
Great Credit or Buy... but you might want to wait until book 2 comes out b/c it will leave you craving more...
Narration was great.

Any additional comments?
It's a shame the narrator was not good as the story has potential. I did not like Saskia's portrayal of Rafe's voice at all. It grinded on my nerves the entire book. If another narrator is used for the next book i might continue with the series but i will give it a miss if Saskia is narrator.
