Publisher's Summary

Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head-on. 

But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once again lands in his path, it’s only too easy to fall back into their easy rhythm. And then their easy banter. And of course, each other’s arms. 

He tells himself nothing has changed. She still wants forever, and he still thinks tomorrow is long enough. But watching her search isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and now, Dylan must figure out if he’s really the love Scrooge he professes to be or if he’s been fate’s willing victim all along. 

*Includes Sweet Liar, audiobook one in the Dirty Sweet duet.

Great Love story

This audiobook contains the first novella (Book 1) as well as Book 2.
While both Shane East and Carly Robins equally narrate the first book, Shane East narrates the second book (just over 7hours). Carly Robins narrates the epilogue. They both do an outstanding job.

Not feeling it

This is the duet in the Dirty Sweet series. Dylan Locke a 39 year old ad exec has been lusting over 20 year old Audrey Lind. Emotionally scared by his previous marriage he leaves New York to go home to England and escape his lust for her.

But fate has other plans for him, when Audrey shows up in England for a job at the museum and the laws of attraction kick in once again. No matter how hard Dylan attempts to keep his distance from the young girl he can't help but pine after her.

I found this story difficult to accept. I understand Dylan's character not wanting to get involved after a horrendous divorce, but falling for Audrey a young girl nearly 20 years younger wanting to have 5 children and all her other idealistic head in the clouds didn't seem believable to me. Other than their carnal lust for one another, they really don't have a lot in common.

Shane East and Carly Robins narrate this story with ease. I can visualize Dylan a seasoned British business man in his forties worrying about children in his 80's while Carly provides the unrealistic sheltered Audrey a voice that screams naive.

Shane East’s voice is delicious!

I picked this book because of the male narrator and the author, both of whom I’ve enjoyed in previous audiobooks. Dylan’s refusal to give love a chance with a younger woman he’s head over heals for gets a bit tiring towards the end - it dragged on longer than needed, but the HEA is so worth waiting for. Very sexy and hot love scenes are so much better read by a male voice. If you enjoy Shane East, he also narrates books under the name Steve West.

very satisfying book with very sexy male narrator

I lovedt this story because the conflict in it was very real. I like that the ex-wife was not necessarily an evil character, and as the story developed several of the side characters were flushed out more. The sex was also pretty hot.

About time a MAN wanted

This was a real role reversal. In a weird way. The man doubted himself and question his motives and questioned his life and his boundaries and the woman showed tons of confidence and went for what she wanted. He was still hot as hell and loaded and had a ton of power so that part didn’t change. But it was nice for a change I have a woman take the lead and still get her man.

Shane couldn’t save this one!

Just can’t get over the huge age gap and the flighty immature heroine.

Narration is wonderful though.

Returning for a refund.

I am a believer!

I believe in kismet and this book also makes you feel like there is someone out there for you. I love this one because it wasn’t the traditional pairing of a couple but yet they fit so perfect together.

Sweet Fate is a sweet slow burn with a lot of heat

Sweet Fate is a sweet slow burn with a lot of heat! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read

Dylan & Audrey’s Story is crazy hot! Audrey tried so hard to not love Dylan and Dylan tries the same. Sometimes things are Fate and some Kismet!

I really enjoyed that we got a glimpse into some of the other characters that loved Amanda, with Dylan and Ellen being her parents. I found those parts super emotional.

Audible: Carly Robins was perfection Audrey’s Character & Shane East (whom is my favorite male narrator right now) was sexy and smooth. Shane East doing the lines in the male POV as Audrey.. I kept thinking British Valley Girl! Cracked me up!
