    This is the third book in the soap opera series H h were so suitable that the author had to throw in some convoluted drama to keep the page count up This is a fairly conflict free story of rival producers of soaps on opposite networks The story opens when the heroine wins an award, beating out the hero He kisses her to congratulate her and that begins their courtship.Hero is just getting divorced from a career woman He doesn t want to waste time with a fling since he wants to find a nice Gr This is the third book in the soap opera series H h were so suitable that the author had to throw in some convoluted drama to keep the page count up This is a fairly conflict free story of rival producers of soaps on opposite networks The story opens when the heroine wins an award, beating out the hero He kisses her to congratulate her and that begins their courtship.Hero is just getting divorced from a career woman He doesn t want to waste time with a fling since he wants to find a nice Greek girl to marry and have children with Heroine is a determined career woman with bed buddies but her two friends are paired off and she is having second thoughts They are both Greek with close knit families.There is a side drama with one of his stars and one of her stars making a sex tape that was stolen The thieves devise a blackmail scheme to prevent it going on the Internet Heroine wears a wire to help catch them, while the hero is all protective alpha There is another plot thread devoted to the heroine s mother s alcoholism and why the heroine is reluctant to have children.The heroine breaks it off after charming the hero s whole family they watch his soap and tape hers LOL But once Mom is in rehab, and heroine has a pregnancy scare, heroine has second thoughts She realizes she loves the hero and wants him back Hero immediately takes her back This is a low angst, courtship story withsoap background and the two loved up sequel bait couples making lots of appearances Oh, and there is a lots of sex condom wrapper tearing, up against a wall sex So in Blaze world, it must be true love This is really only a two star read, but I m giving it three because it serves the function of tying up a really interesting series I like how the author doesn t show all the loose ends, but tells instead For instance, I didn t need to see the wedding of the H h from book one We re told they re married in book three And that was enough Same with the directorial debut of the hero from book two in book three we find out it won the ratings war on that night That s enough for me.Since I read the series all at once, I got very tired of the endless sex scenes and the characters panting over each other s appearances I think if I had broken up my reading it wouldn t have felt so repetitious And I don t care about sex scenes for the most part I can take or leave them So Blaze is not my go to line.Still, give this series a try if you want something a little different Book one is the best, as is often the case in a series

    The third in the series about three friends who work on a soap opera is another excellent mix of steam, humor, and emotion Claudia simply loathes Leandro, the producer of a rival soap opera he s so obnoxiously tall and gorgeous, and it s simply embarrassing having the hots for a man so beneath her contempt Then a work situation throws them together and neither can resist the sparks that fly As time goes on, Leandro becomes increasingly convinced that their fling is actually the start o The third in the series about three friends who work on a soap opera is another excellent mix of steam, humor, and emotion Claudia simply loathes Leandro, the producer of a rival soap opera he s so obnoxiously tall and gorgeous, and it s simply embarrassing having the hots for a man so beneath her contempt Then a work situation throws them together and neither can resist the sparks that fly As time goes on, Leandro becomes increasingly convinced that their fling is actually the start of the real relationship he wants, one that will lead to marriage and children But Claudia is holding on to an ugly secret, one that has convinced her that having a family is not for her.From the beginning of this book, where we see that sex positive Claudia hasn t been whitewashed at all from her previous appearances, I was continually surprised and delighted with where the plot went Leandro is adorable, of course, and I liked that he appreciates Claudia s toughness, after thinking of her as tiny and fragile Claudia comes off as a bit of a jerk at first, but becomes very sympathetic as we really get to know her and discover the hard decisions she s had to make I was particularly happy with how the conflict is resolved

    2 stars Not engaging due to heroine s attitude and temperament.This book was not as fun as I hoped Claudia grew up with an alcoholic mother who embarrassed her She never brought friends home Her father refused to admit the problem or get the right kind of help Apparently that s the reason Claudia is now a difficult person She is extremely competitive, works seven days a week, is very good at her job, and never wants to marry or have kids She is head producer of a TV show Leandro is hea 2 stars Not engaging due to heroine s attitude and temperament.This book was not as fun as I hoped Claudia grew up with an alcoholic mother who embarrassed her She never brought friends home Her father refused to admit the problem or get the right kind of help Apparently that s the reason Claudia is now a difficult person She is extremely competitive, works seven days a week, is very good at her job, and never wants to marry or have kids She is head producer of a TV show Leandro is head producer of a rival TV show Their paths cross They end up having hot, heavy, addictive, passionate sex She wants a one night stand He can t forget about her and starts sending her gifts They end up seeing each other a lot He is patient, kind, generous, and caring She fights him at several points along the way, and that s where my problem is She comes off mouthy, sarcastic, selfish, bitchy, mean, and you don t own me attitude At one point she wants to break up because she thinks there is a risk he might see scripts from her TV show and use it for his own show Later she wants to break up because she realizes he cares for her Later she does break up with him because she insists she never wants kids and he eventually will He says let s not worry about the future Let s enjoy what we have and see where it takes us But no she won t I did not enjoy this She was unsympathetic I m not saying all main characters must be likeable Sometimes a bad girl can be entertaining S.E Phillips did it well in Ain t She Sweet I m just saying that a heroine with problems can be done in aengaging way Here s a minor example of conversation that did not appeal to me She and Leandro are on the way to meet with a criminal Leandro asks her if she is nervous She says no But she is It wasn t a big deal, but something about it bothered me Why lie about something so minor Regarding spoilers I really don t think I m doing spoilers above From the beginning she tells him she does not want marriage and kids And since most romance novels have a break up, my mentioning the break up should not be a surprise My intent is to let you know the main story is all about her personal issues.The sex scenes are good There are several.NARRATOR The narrator Elizabeth Livingston seemed ok, but I wonder if she hurt the interpretation of Claudia Claudia s character sounded whiny, bitchy, and arrogant I wonder if a different narrator could have made Claudialikeable or sympathetic DATA Unabridged audiobook reading time 7 hrs and 26 mins Swearing language mild Sexual language moderate Number of sex scenes about 8 Setting current day Los Angeles, California Book copyright 2007 Genre contemporary romance

    Male hero with hung ups teaches wary heroine how to love and be loved despite her messed up family history with an alcoholic mother I enjoyed the moments Claudia spent with her two best friends, but 90% of their conversations are either about the guy Claudia is sleeping with or her alcoholic mother or both It got very tiring after a while.

    I never wanted kids and never will and then she s dying to have them

  7. Camille says:

    DNF at 63%The vanilla sex scenes were boring me and there s too much sex and too little story Now, coming upon the apparently necessary conflict, sabotage part, I just don t feel like going through it The premise is too cliched and flimsy anyway.Additionally, the narrator Elizabeth Livingston has a very nasal, whiny voice that can be hard to bear.

  8. Ellyn (Mrs. Darcy in my Dreams) says:

    This was my least favorite story of the three, the story of Sadie and Dylan being the top for me It was predictable and lacked angst.

  9. Mnms says:

    A good solid story, with lots of passion, good characters and dialogue not her best work, but still a good read

    Audiobook version narrated by Elisabeth LivingstonBook 3.5 Narration 3 This was a very enjoyable audiobook and if I was rating it only against other category romances it would be a 4 5 star Claudia Dostis is a producer for a daytime TV show and her competition in ratings and industry awards is Leandro Mandalor, producer for a rival show When an extortionist throws the two of them together, the attraction between them explodes but growing up with an alcoholic mother has taught Claudia that marr Audiobook version narrated by Elisabeth LivingstonBook 3.5 Narration 3 This was a very enjoyable audiobook and if I was rating it only against other category romances it would be a 4 5 star Claudia Dostis is a producer for a daytime TV show and her competition in ratings and industry awards is Leandro Mandalor, producer for a rival show When an extortionist throws the two of them together, the attraction between them explodes but growing up with an alcoholic mother has taught Claudia that marriage and children lead to unhappiness.This could have been typical example of the genre except Sarah Mayberry excels at creating very human characters who rarely end up following the expected plot progression Claudia and Mandalor certainly generate the expected sexual heat for a book in the Blaze line but as Claudia deals with her family and struggles with her mother s addiction, the reader gets one heck of an emotional wallop The strong female friendships in the story are a nice addition to the overall plot and there is witty dialogue scattered throughout the book In a nice change up, it is the male lead who wants to settle down and the female lead who has to be convinced or really, convince herself This book has strong, engaging, and adult characters who are navigating life and love with thoughtfulness and humor.The narration was pretty good although I struggled with two aspects of it the emotion in Leandro s voice often didn t sound genuine to me and I felt there was a certain level of detachment in the narrator s voice during the sex scenes which made me uncomfortable with them All the character voices were unique and Ms Livingston gave Leandro a rather delicious voice and overall I did enjoy the narration
