I’m naturally gifted on the field and between the sheets. With flashy cars and enough media attention to put the Royal Family to shame, I’m the definition of Most Eligible Bachelor.
Every man wants to be me and every woman wants to tame me. Until Camila.
The moment I lay eyes on her, I know I have to have her.
She wants to keep me at arm’s length.
I want her naked in my bed.
She thinks our worlds are too different.
All I want her to think about is screaming my name.
She says I’m bad news.
I have three weeks to prove her wrong.
Yes! Yesssss! This book was damn near perfection. Such a gorgeous sports romance/ friends-to-lovers novel. Claire Contreras gives us angst and conflict, but without all those pesky, whiny inner monologues. Warren is amazing! He’s sexy, charismatic, possessive and determined. Still, he’s got a soft side too and that had me swooning as much as when he was turning up the alpha vibes. Camila is a fantastic female lead. She’s strong, driven, and vibrant. She’s not easily charmed by Warren and stands her ground, but isn’t a complete shrew to accomplish this. Their chemistry and attraction sizzles and and damn near sets fire the pages when Camila finally gives into Warren. Both grow, together and separately, throughout their journey in the story and when they finally come together they’re even better for it.
I don’t know who cast the narration for this audiobook, but they deserve a prize! Why? Two words: that accent! *fans self* Zachary Webber absolutely blew me away. He doesn’t simply narrate the story, he breathes it into life! From Warren’s softer side to his naughty bedside manner, he embodies the character flawlessly. Megan Tusing is equally terrific in her narration. From seamlessly switching accents to her completely delicious male voice, she’s utter perfection. This audiobook is not to be missed! All the stars.
