It was supposed to be a one-night stand. Lust was the only thing they had in common.

Roxy Quinn - tattooed goddess, daughter of punk rockers, and general beautiful badass - thought she’d never see Edward Cavendish III again. The wealthy British hotelier wandered into her dingy New York City tattoo parlor, a little drunk and a lot brokenhearted. And very, very charming.

After a night of panty-disintegrating passion, Roxy sends him on his way. She has zero time to pursue the suit-wearing sex god. Not when her business is failing. Not when her employees are counting on her.

After a lifetime trapped in his parents’ legacy, Edward’s rendezvous with the scowling vixen is a glimpse of glorious freedom. But it’s not freedom he needs now. What he needs is to find the right wife to fulfill the terms of his trust fund before he loses it all. Roxy, with her ripped stockings and delectable secret piercings, is definitely not that kind of wife.

But their paths cross again when Edward and Roxy are inconveniently paired up in a business school mentoring program. It has to be a strictly professional relationship. No kissing. No sex. Definitely no dark alley trysts after dancing together all night. Oops.

If forbidden relationships, opposites that attract like crazy lust magnets, and all the rescue pets in the world are your jam, you’re going to love Edward and Roxy!

Great opposites attract romcom

I enjoyed this steamy, funny and sweet story between two characters from totally different worlds. Their insta love connection was awesome and I loved the animal lover angle as well.
Edward has long been my favorite hero by Kathryn Nolan and hearing his English accent come to life in this audio book was absolute perfection!

Great narration

I loved the female narrator - she did Roxy, Edward, Roxy’s parents, and Fiona perfectly. The male narrator was good, but he didn’t impart the same cadence for the Roxy parts - I never felt like it was quite right when he said lines in her voice. I would have loved to see this as a duet narration!

The book itself is fantastic - I read it long before the audio came out, and adored every word. Roxy & Edward’s push/pull relationship was sublime.
