Subject: You're a flippin' idiot

Good morning, my dear, naive friend.

I hope you're enjoying a breakfast of regret and sorrow.

Why?

Because you sent me to work for Dean Harper, aka a control freak in a tailor-made suit. Sure, he owns the trendiest restaurants in NYC, but c'mon, Jo. His ego makes Kanye West look like the Dalai Lama.

He's the type of guy who hears the word "no" only when it's followed by "don't stop".

Working for Dean Harper would be like selling my soul to the devil...and before you say anything, I don't care if the devil has punch-you-in-the-gut brown eyes and an ass to match. My soul isn't for sale.

Regretfully yours,
Lily

Please note: The Allure of Dean Harper is a standalone contemporary romance from USA Today best-selling author R. S. Grey with overlapping characters from The Allure of Julian Lefray. Both books can be listened to separately.

Not Grey's Best

Some of Grey's work is fantastic (A Place in the Sun), but I don't know what happened here. The book feels so juvenile and as if Grey just slapped something together. The characters are so unlikable and annoying, and the book is predictable and far from believable. Sara, the female narrator, has a voice like nails on a chalkboard. Skip this book!

Didn't like this one

I really enjoyed The Fortunate Ones, also written by this author, but I stopped this one with an hour left and just didn't care what happened. I didn't like the characters, and frankly they didn't seem to like each other. Immature behavior and absurd situations (accidentally being mistaken for a dancer and having to perform at a strip club - eye roll), derailed any opportunity to forgive the shallow relationship and arrogance of this "couple".
Aside from the vapid storyline, the narrators were not enjoyable to listen to. The male read very quickly as if rushing to finish and the female's accents were annoying and sometimes forgotten mid sentence.
Not sure I'll try another by this author.

cute and fun

Loved it. Kept me laughing. But read The Allure of Julian Gray first. Quick and enjoyable listen.

Disappointing

I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've read from this author. This book is the exception. The overall story has a decent premise but it seems cobbled together; reusing the same words and phrases. "Smirk" is used 50 times in this book. This became the key word to forward to the next chapter when the whiny, shallow bitch (heroine) used it. The female audio was cringe worthy. Aaron Roberts did well as the male narrator and was actually the only redeeming quality of this book. This book is not worth the listen.

Loved the first book

But Lily was a horrible character and the narrators annoying high pitched voice made me honestly just dislike her.
I really didn’t enjoy this book even half as much as the first one and this is by far my least favourite R.S. Grey book...

normally i love her books

the main female character really annoyed me. I got tired of the going from being a major B**** to the biggest cry baby ever.

No one changes that much

I really like this author; however I was disappointed in this book. If these 2 characters are as strong willed at the author made you believe, there is no way the end result would occur, especially after the climactic momeny.

Deliciously sexy & funny

He's ornery and broody and she loves a challenge. What more can a reader ask for in an enemies to lovers trope than an epic clash between two characters that leads to a battle of wills. And talk about the chemistry, whoo *fans self*. This light-hearted read will be easily devoured by readers. It's funny, sexy, charming, witty and full of delicious tension.

Ugh! The narrator!

I literally couldn’t get past the 3rd chapter. The female has to be the top 5 WORST narrators I have ever heard and I have listened to hundreds and hundreds of audiobooks. I normally can get past poor narration in order to listen to the story but I just couldn’t with this one. I hope she is never used on any audiobook I come across again. Shudder.
