Skye Morrison has a lot in common with today’s college graduates; she’s neck-deep in student loan debt and desperate for a job. For four years, the nightlife of Austin, Texas (home of Skye’s Alma Mater) has satiated her thirst for good music, a revamp in fashion and men – especially local musician, Jameson Doyle, but her spot as a waitress at Drop Kick Dan’s bar wasn’t going to cut the slack. A personal life troubled by a hounding ex only made matters worse. Skye was never the damsel in distress type, but when an unexpected public shouting match with her ex turned physical, a savior disguised as a heavenly gorgeous Irishman came to her rescue. Archer Rhys, a businessman with a lot to offer, doesn’t exactly sweep Skye off her feet but she couldn’t help but to be captivated by his ravenous good looks. When Archer makes Skye a lucrative job offer as his personal assistant for his new downtown Austin club, The Mausoleum, she quickly finds out that she may have gotten more than she bargained for.
I've heard good things about this book from a couple of platypires. One in particular is a huge fan of the author, J.L. McCoym so I sprung at the chance to get to review it.
The story was pretty captivating, so I understood her feelings toward it. I had a hard time turning off my audible app, but the story is not kid-friendly, and I'm around children for a good portion of the day.
Aris, the narrator, was pretty good as well. Better as the story progressed. Toward the beginning she was a little rushed. That was quickly overshadowed by her ability to do multiple accents, and keep the characters separated pretty well. I was impressed by her.
As for the story itself, there were parts that Aris helped counter with her narration. There is a lot of redundancy that took me out of the story multiple times. There's also a love triangle more toward the beginning that bothered me, but I was glad at how quickly it was resolved.
The story ends on one hell of a cliffhanger. There's ending a story in anticipation for something, which I can appreciate. Then there's cutting a story mid dialogue. That was more than a little annoying.
