Manic Monday (Charity Case Book 1) performed by Kylie Stewart

Manic Monday (Charity Case Book 1) by Piper Rayne, performed by Kylie Stewart is a fantastic story!

Synopsis:

The perfect man for me is a charming, sexy, hot-as-hell lawyer who knows how to negotiate his way into my panties. 

#Pfftwhatever. Been there. Done that. Burned the T-shirt. I didn't swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can't be trusted.

Now that I've moved back into my childhood home in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom, and me. I haven't given up on finding my happily ever after, it's just on hold - indefinitely. Yup, life is in a real upswing. 

Then I see Reed Warner again, and I'm reminded of all my mistakes. I push him away, but somehow he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take "No" for an answer.

In spite of my better judgment, I can't stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance. You know when you're on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate éclair, and my willpower is fading fast. 

The problem? Not only is he a lawyer...he was the best man at my wedding.

Ceej’s Review:

Manic Monday is amazingly wonderful. Who knew I could fall for such a good guy? I absolutely loved Reed! And Victoria? I already liked her from previous books. I think one of the reasons I liked her so much is because she just may be as stubborn as I am. LOL! Nothing she did surprised me and for once, I loved that about her.

One thing I love about Piper Rayne novels is the fact that they’re not just about a man and woman finding each other. Victoria has Hannah and Chelsea, who are such amazing characters on their own and help round Victoria out. Both had me rolling in laughter! But when they’re all together? I wish I were right there with them!

Reed…(sigh) I need a Reed. He’s such a good man. When Victoria discovered what he did outside of work? Cue the swoon. I love a man who does that and enjoys it. Want to know what that is? Gotta read it for yourself! I adore his persistence and his smirks! One thing I didn’t expect from him made my heart drop (thanks a lot, Piper Rayne)!

 

I read the ebooks first then listen to the audio versions. And as for this performance, I felt that the narrator put a little more effort into the dialogue for all the other characters than Victoria.  Maybe I'm just insanely picky because I love this story so much and love the authors even more.  The hot, sexy scenes were made to sound kind of boring when I know for a fact they're not. I was disappointed because this story and the authors deserved a 5 star performance. The narrator, unfortunately, sounded like she was simply reading to herself and not putting much of an effort.
