Who is Fooling Who is the Question!

Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

This is a Multi Author series, written as a standalone. You do not need to read them in order.

More information can be found on the official Misadventures Website.

Length: 5 hrs and 19 mins

Content Advisory: High heat
There is sex, dirty talk, and dirty thoughts. 👍

At the time of this posting, this title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

I’ve listened to several titles in this series and they have all been very steamy! The stories are page turners too, which makes them a win, win for me! The consistency as a whole has been great even though this is a multi author series of standalones. Most of the Misadventures can be found in the library as well as various subscription services so they are easy to come by.

 

Carson Ella

 

Carson Frost is trying to salvage the business left to him by his birth father, but his rash choices are coming back to haunt him. He took a deal with a competitor for the money he needed to keep the business afloat and the shiny coins aren’t shiny or even real coins anymore. In an effort to get out of the deal he hires Ella Hope to be the long lost love of his life that will get him out of his current engagement and then dump him at the altar … Simple, Right?

Ella Hope is a struggling actress. Her love life, as well as her bank account, have seen better days. She remembers Carson and how she would of been interested if she were not on a date with his friend. The call was welcomed timing. Spending time with the hot guy from the party while padding her bank account sounds like a solid plan. She is a professional she can do this … Simple, Right?

“Am I really waxing poetic about her damn knee?”
— Carson

 

It wasn’t Simple! Things heat up fast, and their well laid plans go out the window. As the outside players keep changing the rules, things get crazy. Well, more crazy, because things started there in the first place. Lies become real, while the real becomes lies. Don’t believe anyone till its all said and done! A good time will be had, and that is not a lie!

Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers narrate this title with alternating POVs. Both individually did a great job in their pacing and emotion. I do wish it would of been a true Duet though, because they end up, by default, competing with each other for who did the character better. It’s really hard to pick a clear winner.

Normal speed was fine, however I listened at 0.90x. It is my personal preference.

♥ Story ♥

Madison ❤ Luke

Two wounded souls come together in the most delicious way!

This is a SPICY story!

There is a lot of dirty talk and HOT action, so if you don’t like that kind of stuff, please pass.

If you DO like it, then please enjoy!


Madison Atwood

Looking for an escape from the paparazzi and tabloids after a very public divorce, Madison retreats to Avalon Springs. She is hoping to ‘find herself’ on the mountainside haven. What she finds is a hunky mountain man who helps her ‘find’ her sexy parts in the best way!

Luke Dawson

Wanting to avoid cities and large crowds has led Luke to live in his secluded cabin in the woods. When he finds Madison naked in his hot springs, he can’t help wanting her. A snow storm traps them inside together and their lust can no longer be denied.


Did I mention Sexy Times!

Yum!


This was fan yourself good!
I think it went on a little too long and maybe could of done without the teary moment in the back half, but overall it worked. It gets a girl excited to listen to more. If you are like me and like some hot sexy fun times to go with good character driven stories, then this is a listen for you!



♥ Author ♥

This is my 1st read/listen by Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss. Since this is a joint effort, I will have to rate them both the same, which is sexy hot! I loved the characters plus all the dirty talk and action! I will be looking into more from these ladies for sure.

♥ Narrator(s)♥

Jennifer Mack and Lance Greenfield alternate on this title by chapter point of view. They both did an excellent job with both story and character. I did prefer Lance’s voice when it came to Luke. Jennifer did a good job, which would of been great if she was solo on this. Unfortunately for her, Lance’s sexy gruff was just so much sexier. In an ideal world, when there are more than one narrator, the ‘voice’ of any character would be done by the same person regardless of point of view.
