Publisher's Summary

What happens when the one person who makes your heart sing is also the one person who could destroy everything you’ve worked for?

Laurie “The Hatchet” Emerson is a ruthless leader in Boston finance who’s rumored to have a block of ice where her heart should be. If only. Recently widowed, Laurie fears she’s broken beyond repair, until a once-in-a-lifetime business deal reignites her passion for work and gives her a shot at proving to the world she still has some life left in her.

Jack Kennedy is a young portfolio manager who aspires to greatness. Unfortunately, she’s so many rungs down the corporate ladder she can’t even scrape up enough money to move out of her mother’s apartment. Her luck changes when her work ethic is finally rewarded with the job opportunity of her dreams.

A blizzard forces their worlds to collide, but what was meant to be a no-strings night of passion becomes more complicated when they both arrive at the office the next morning to discover they each spent the night with the one person in the city who could crush their futures.

Together, they just might hold the keys to everything they’ve ever wanted, but the difference in their ages and positions could spell the end of their careers. Will the ice queen and the protégé find happiness together or lose everything?

Best-selling lesbian fiction authors TB Markinson and Miranda MacLeod have written a scorching ice queen romance about love striking twice. Listen to it today!

Narrator makes or breaks

I received this audiobook in a free giveaway through the publisher’s newsletter. I’m a big fan of TB Markinson. I love her books, many are among some of my faves. I’ve read this one & liked it so I was looking forward to the audible version when I saw I won a free copy.

Narrators can make or break it for me every time.

In this case, it was broken, sorry. I am not fond of Stephanie Murphy’s narration style. Like at all. Actually, I was incredibly disappointed by her being the narrator for Markinson’s entire Woman Lost series; it’s my fave by her & I would’ve loved to have a reliable audio series in my library to replay numerous times over the years. But Murphy just doesn’t do it for me. She ruined Sarah & Maddie for me completely in that series.

Her cadence makes it incredibly hard to listen. She has a pleasant enough voice but she reads sooooooooooooo slow & literally never changes the pitch or tone throughout the entirety of a story. That remained true with this book unfortunately. I really really tried to give it a chance but as always didn’t get past the first 2-3 chapters.

It moves along so slow I can’t seem to get into the book & stay interested more than 5 mins at a time, my brain starts to wander too quickly. There are so many unnecessary long pauses between words & sentences; sometimes I even thought my Audible app had crashed & needed to be restarted but no it was just Murphy taking a 15 second pause between sentences for whatever reason.

Also, I can never tell one character from another when she speaks bc they all sound the same. And I do mean literally all—male, female, young, old, various accents. This is especially awful with Markinson’s books bc she weaves a ton of dialog into her stories & offers such a variety of interesting characters. It’s impossible to follow along when one character is speaking to another. If I have to concentrate that hard it kinda defeats the purpose of an audiobook for me bc it’s supposed to be a relaxing & distracting escape :(

Sorry to rant but I much prefer the styles Lori Prince or Abby Crayden—both are very talented at bringing multiple characters to life & making you feel like your watching a story unfold instead of just listening. Sigh.

Sorry, it really bugged me this time. If the publisher wants their free copy back to give to someone else who does like Stephanie Murphy I would gladly return. Would’ve given this book 5 stars across the board if it were any narrator but her or maybe Keira Grace (who’s the same exact way sigh).

Excellent!

This was a hot ice-queen, workplace, age-gap romance. Some of my favorite tropes. Great story with a great narrator.

Horrible narrator! Ugh!! Everything Boring!

I had to struggle to listen to the audiobook! Absolutely awful narrator!! I can't believe that I paid for this! Her boring, sing-song voice killed by mood! And the narrator used the same tone for all characters! I couldn't tell which character was talking!! I really tried to finish the audiobook but gave up after 2 hours! Similar tone for all characters and couldn't separate the f..... characters! So boring!! Also, the book is dull! The ratings are deceitful! Overall 0.5 rating out of 5!!

Okay

Good story idea but lacking. I found myself bored through most of the story. These authors have several really good works, so this was a bit disappointing. Narrator was bland with little character voice difference or enthusiasm. Like reading off a to do list most of the time. Maybe author direction would have helped… ?

Fascinating story

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. The characters were so interesting and well developed that they seemed alive and the drama made it highly entertaining. Laurie the hatchet was applied descibe in the beginning and seeing her develop into a lovely woman was enchanting. Jack much younger had higher expectations from the hatchet and was kept in constant turmoil, which actually happens in real life at times. The love scene’s were hot and I liked that they did not take up the whole story. The desires from both women’s point was fascinating to hear and the ending was everything I have come to expect from this talented author.

Hooked me with the heat… lost me with the plot

That first sex scene was steamy and totally what I was hoping to see more of…. But it didn’t happen till nearly the end of the books so overall it was an okay story just really wasn’t what I was looking for right now.

Really enjoy this book

I’ve read few TB Markinson x Miranda MacLead book, this is also a great one! Stephanie Murphy is new narrator for me, feel a bit slow at first but once you get into the story it gets better and better.

Incredible book

I absolutely loved this book. The store line was very different and well developed. These authors blended their contributions seamlessly. The narrator was one I didn't know but she was excellent.
