THE WEDDING VOW by Cara Connelly
Available now from Harper Audio.
From the Publisher:
“Cara Connelly’s second Save the Date novel proves that opposites do attract…
Sexy billionaire Adam LeCroix has a mission: hunt down the sultry spitfire he blames for his troubles, demand her help, and exact revenge while he’s at it. Maddie St. Clair will help him . . . or else.
Former prosecutor Maddie damn near nailed Adam for stealing, but the lucky bastard walked. Now, five years later, he’s back, arrogant as ever, giving her an ultimatum—work for him to collect the insurance money, or she’ll never work again.
Maddie’s all about right and wrong. Adam’s shades of gray. So when he uncovers the hot body under her hard-ass veneer and she finds he’s a thief with a heart, can the law-and-order lawyer and the fast-and-loose felon put their prickly past behind them?”
My recording experience:
This was a fun romance. Maddie is so lovable for a prickly character (understandable once you learn her background). Both hero and heroines are alphas which makes for great scenes with push and pull dialog (and some lively sex to boot!). Adam’s accent was a challenge – he grew up all over the world, adapting to all kinds of environments. He ends up mostly commuting between New York and Italy as an adult, so I gave him a Euro sound, heavy on the Italian, and hopefully heavy on the sexy 🙂 A fun romp with a conscience, I would call this one.
