Her cheating ex deserves to see her living her best life; a one-night-stand with a hot South African soccer player would be the perfect revenge. Right?

Wrong. Allie is so, so wrong.


On and off the field he’s at the top of his game. Roan respects hard-work, dedication—and follow through. He’s not a one and done kind of man, and he’s far from being done with Allie Harris.

One sexy night and two years later, Allie’s job brings her back to town. An opportunity for the perfect replay Roan has been fantasizing about since they slept together.


Allie Harris has a secret; one she’s been keeping from Roan all this time. Video proof of their one night together—taken without his consent.

Will Allie’s payback plan come back to bite them both? Or can she erase her past mistake and embrace a new future with Roan?


I knew it. It’s happened. Amy Daws has killed me dead with her audiobook for Payback. This multi-cast narrated audio was not one thing short of fucking awesome. Yes, FUCKING AWESOME. I listened to it twice. TWICE. I completely ignored my responsibilities and family because this audio was better than them. Jk! I love them and whatever, but this audiobook was beyond credit worthy. Once again bare with me as I fucking fangirl the entire way through this review. Like zero chill up ahead.

The story was fantastic when I read it the first time, but it pales in comparison to it coming so perfectly to life with the help of Aaron Shedlock, Erin Mallon, Will Watt, and Charlotte Cole. I was beyond overjoyed when I learned Will Watt and Charlotte Cole would be reprising their roles in the series because they are amazing, cannot be replaced and their narrating chemistry is perfection at this point. I mean, Will and Lottie were the reason I fell in love with this series in the first place! (*whisper-yells* I love you, Will!)

But oh my god can we talk about Aaron Shedlock as Roan. OOHMAHGAWD his narration and South African accent in this book did things to me. Delicious, tingly things to me. His performance was scrumptious. It was lick-a-giant-ice-cone-on-Fourth-of-July-with-triple-digit-heat-in-middle-of-the-desert satisfying. Never has my husband been more overjoyed at me listening to an audiobook than he was with Payback. *wink* Then we have Erin Mallon. I mean, it’s freaking Erin Mallon. The woman could say ‘hi’ in her regular or male voice and it could win awards. Enough said. She’s basically the female audio-unicorn.

You guys! Seriously, this was so so good. Hilarious, addictive, had all the feels, and a cast of narrators that I never knew I absofuckinglutely needed in my audio life!! And did I mention Aaron Shedlock’s accent is amazing? GET THIS! Listen. Over and over and over. It’s the audiobook that keeps on giving.
