I’ll say this about Christian — he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I’d seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do — I took his photo. I might have looked at the shot a few dozen times. Little did I know I’d meet him again, a year later, at a secret garden bar in the heart of the city, where I’d learn that his mind and his mouth were even more captivating. But given the way my heart had been trampled, I wanted only a simple deal — No strings. No expectations.

Our arrangement worked well enough until the day I needed a lot more from him…


Let me just say, this whole part-time lover thing was her idea. I’d have gone all-in from the start, but hey, when a gorgeous, brilliant woman invites you into her bed, and only her bed…well, I said yes.

But then, one hysterical phone call from my brother later, begging me to find myself a wife so grandfather’s business stays in the family, and I need a promotion with Elise. Turns out a full-time husband suits her needs too, and a temporary marriage of convenience ought to do the trick, until we can simply untie the knot…

As long as no one finds out…
As long as no one gets hurt…
As long as no one falls in love…

But our ending was one I never saw coming.

My Thoughts:

This is a great book to listen to. Having the narrators read to us with an accent helps the reader picture the characters that we're learning about and falling in love with. I feel like I need to pack my bags, grab a ticket, and take a trip in order to set the mood for when I relisten to this story. Mr. East and Ms. Grant show us what we miss when we read the book to ourselves.

Even though Elise works in another country, she still has family here in America. I love how thoughtful her brother is when it comes to the little gifts he gives her. Christian is a man that's very bold, knows what he's got, and isn't afraid to flaunt it. His brother will pull on our sympathies and Elise acts on hers.

Some may think this is a second chance romance but is it a second chance if they don't have a date the first time around. But that doesn't mean that they didn't feel a connection the first time they see each other. So in that way it could be considered a second chance. This was a fun ride from beginning to end. I was glad that I had a chance to listen to the book because I think I enjoyed it more by having the narrators read to me. I certainly don't read in an accent and I don't think I would have put in as much emotion as we get here.

Our author even got me to talk to her characters - which wouldn't happen if I was reading the book myself. I was glad that no one was around because I think I would have gotten quite a few quizzical looks. Of course I was out doing yard work at the time so I could always lie and say that I was only talking to myself. The hard thing to pass off would be my chuckling. There were times that it got very hard to hold it in. By the end, I was ready for more but I'll have to be patient. I hunted and hunted to see what's coming next in the Part-Time Lover series and couldn't find anything. But I'm sure that I'll thoroughly enjoy any of her other titles I choose to listen to.

“From the beautiful backdrop to the witty dialogue and the heartwarming romance, Part-time Lover is a keeper.” -Isha, I Love Romance
