Description

Australian crime reporter Maddie Grey is out of her depth in New York, miserable, and secretly drawn to her powerful, twice-married media mogul boss, Elena Bartell, who eats failing newspapers for breakfast. As work takes them to Australia, Maddie is goaded into a brief, seemingly harmless bet with her enigmatic boss - where they have to tell the complete truth to each other. It backfires catastrophically.

Contains mature themes.

Don't miss out.

Loved this book. listened to it 3 times in a row... I know who has the time and thank you Covid.... About the book, Not sure what really pulled me in and The powerhouse boss or the unrelenting employee. However so many great aspects from new friendships to love it is a great book.

Incredible performance

Loved this story and the writing so much. Laughed so hard and really enjoyed the characters. The reading is phenomenal, too! Worth listening to just for that.

Totally deserved a sleepless night

Being true to yourself and others, as tough as it appears, shapes a better world. Human connection just gains from it. Always.

Lee Winter Does It Again

This is my second Lee Winter book and she did not disappoint. I've been craving a good slow burn/pining book that would make me want to keep listening and this was just that! I was torn between wanting to finish it and not wanting it to be over! The narrator did a great job too!

Best ice queen f/f!!

Omg this was so good! So many funny witty moments. But then again, this is a Lee Winter story, so should I be surprised that I ALSO loved this one?

The dialogue between all characters was believable and entertaining (ie no bland conversations where all character talk like each other). Other than the two protagonists, the French mother/daughter have to be my favs; their well-intentioned schemes were so funny!!

The narrator, Angela Dawe, was of course amazing (per usual)! Her nuanced performance and accents were so good!

You won't regret listening to this!

Absolutey brilliant!

First, let it be said that Angela Dawe is an amazing narrator (one of the best out there) and boy did she do that book justice.

Now the story itself was brilliantly written, the characters, all of them, are just amazing and well rounded. That, in my opinion, is one of the strengths of the book. Lee Winter does make us care about each one of them, be it the main ones or secondary, she makes us care about their stories, about their flaws, about their growth; not a single character is one dimensional, they have layers and it is pure delight to watch them unfold little by little.

I also liked that the romance was underlying. It was slowly and properly built, to be omnipresent but never quite the center of attention. That allowed to focus on the characters and their stories making the whole book even more compelling.

An amazing read I strongly recommand, it's funny, dark at times, profoundly human and I dare you not to fall for the characters or enjoy Winter's brilliant writing.

Very surprising!

A lot of other reviewers said it is like The Devil Wears Prada, but in only context of the fashion industry. I really enjoyed the book and the narrator did a good job with the different voices and accents. It was also nice to have a romantic novel without the sex scenes every other page. It’s has also a good message of how truthfulness can be a hinderance or allowing for further dialogue. I do hope I can more of the author’s work on Audible. I literally couldn’t put down my headphones.

This has to be one of my all time favorites. The narration is the BEST I've heard and I've heard over a hundred books. I can't recommend this book enough. Great characters, great story.

An outstanding book

I absolutely loved the book when I read it. I loved the interaction between the two main characters and how hints at Elena's character were revealed. It was fun reading about their interactions and Elena's reluctant toleration of Maddie growing to an appreciation and a need. This harkens back to old black and white movies with witty banter between the two main characters.

But Ms Dawe turns out to vastly enhance the book, which i didn't think possible. She perfectly conveys Maddie's emotions and provides a really humanizing portrayal of Maddie, especially her shock and embarrasment, which happens a lot in this book. She makes Maddie completely adorable and wonderful.

She also makes Felicity just borderline awful, but just the right side of awfully high strung.

This is one of my favorite audiobooks.

Very entertaining

I haven't read The Brutal Truth before listening to this audiobook, so this was the first time I met the story.
It's clearly based on The Devil Wears Prada, but it's very well written and very entertaining.
And the narrator Angela Dawe was amazing with all the different accents and voices, but also with story telling - an absolute delight and this story lets her show her talent. Brilliant.

Utter perfection!

Lee Winter + narrator Angela Dawe = Perfection.

Having listened to a gazillion (actual number) audiobooks over the last year I can say without question that this is one of the best in the genre. From the writing - which is exquisite - to the fabulous characters to the performance of the material by Angela Dawe... you just can't ask for more than this. It's one of those that will keep you up until the wee hours of the morning because you just can't bear to stop listening. The humor.... Elena's bite.... Maddie's backbone... Dawe's numerous voices and accents (especially the incredibly sexy low registered voice of Elena??) O....M....G. WHY aren't more lesbian authors hiring this woman to narrate!? I've listened to all of hers in the genre more than once and need more! So much more! She and Abby Craden - the absolute best there is. *sigh*

Excellent Audio!

I loved The Brutal Truth. It's a cross between an Ice Queen romance and a falling for your boss workplace romance. I thought both main characters were very relatable. Angela Dawe does an excellent job with the narration.

Best Book I’ve ever listened to.

This book is like a warm hug. A romantic movie, romantic comedy all of the things. I know about nothing about fashion, but this book doesn’t beat you over the head with it. There’s no stereotypical (at least in most LesFics) breakup that makes absolutely no sense besides lengthening the book. I hate those. Lee winter usually strays from that nonsense. This is a slow burn through and through with excellent side characters. Angela Dawe’s French, American, Australian accents were perfect as well. Lee Winter made the absolute perfect choice in narrator. I am glad I listened to this instead of read, Dawe is that fantastic. She brightens the story.

Seriously, this book will ruin lesfics for you. Lee Winter will. There is no match to her story telling. It spans continents and time. The only book that can follow this one in my opinion is Requiem, also by Winter.

Quite enjoyable

Snappy and fun dialogue, not only between the leads, but the supporting cast too. My favorite Lee Winter book is Breaking Character. Actually, it’s one of my all time favorite books by any author. The Brutal Truth doesn’t live up to BC, however it’s still a really great book. The narration is fantastic!

Great audiobook to listen on repeat

I love this book so much. The author constructed the story in such a way that there is never a boring moment. The main characters interactions are so good and it just such a beautiful way of developing the relationship. I really love Elena's need to keep the her moral grounds it's so good seeing characters with this level of commitment to who they are.

Best

Best book ever! There aren't enough adjectives to describe how much I enjoyed this book. Strong characters, great storyline and wonderful slow burn. It'll be hard to find a book to top this. Narrator was EXCELLENT!
