Just Listen by Clare James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
*Caution: Just Listen
contains explicit sex scenes between an alpha hockey player trying to
begin a new life and an ambitious reporter who will do just about
anything to get her story … Conflict of Interest doesn’t even begin to
describe the trouble these two get into.*
Casey Scott knows it was unethical to get involved with retired hockey
star, Finn Daley, but she did it anyway. Happily. She also knows that
she should tell him about her assignment, but she can’t seem to do it.
No matter how many times she tries. With Finn, Casey experiences
intimacy, pleasure, pain, comfort, and a strange sort of stability.
Things she’s not yet willing to give up.
But when she finally uncovers his secret, the decision she has to make is harder than she ever imagined.
Finn, his past, present, and future are colliding. And when he
discovers the truth about the woman he’s grown to love, and the one he
let get away, his world comes shattering down around him. With
everything on the line, there’s only one person who can help. But is it
Just Listen is the gripping conclusion of Finn and Casey’s story that began in Talk to Me.
I've seriously been dying for this book since reading Talk to Me. So when this came out, I dived right in!
Once I started, I couldn't put it down. I had to know what Finn's secret was! And when it was revealed, I was slightly disappointed. I had figured it out but thought I was wrong. I wasn't disappointed in the secret itself so much as that I had guessed it. But it played out in an interesting way that had me laughing at times with the lengths Casey was willing to go to, to get information about Finn.
One of the things I loved most was the searingly hot connection Finn and Casey had. They had so much mistrust between them yet they couldn't stay away from each other.
I liked the interview aspect that narrated both books. It was something unique that I haven't seen done before.
I loved the end, and how Finn and Casey ended up finally getting together. The only thing I could have asked for is an epilogue to see how their life turned out or see where they ended up professionally and with each other.
