Audio: After the Kiss - Lauren Layne

Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and “I do”—she’ll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.

Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long, he should be the perfect subject for Julie’s “research.” But what Julie doesn’t know is that Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once in his life. And the leggy journalist notorious for avoiding love is exactly the type of no-strings fling he’s looking for. In other words, Mitchell is the polar opposite of what Julie needs right now. And, at the same time, he’s exactly what she wants. 

My thoughts:
If Michell had not played his own game then this would have been a no no. But as it was now, they both were to play and that is ok in my book.

Julie is the Dating Girl, and now she has to write about a relationship. Omg Julie, srsly! No no. Yes, she decides to take a guy for a spin, start a relationship and ditch him. She SO did not think this through.

Mitchell is the Relationship guy, and now he wants a fling since no one thinks he can do it. So he thinks she will be perfect for that, and yes there is a bet involved. Oh Mitchell! That is not cool!

See, both are idiots. Both get irritated by each other. Her game is all wrong. His game is non existent. But damn those sparks sure fly!

She is all wrong for him, and he wants her.
He is all wrong for her, and she sure wants him.

Conclusion:
It was amusing to see these two try and play a game and fall in love instead.

Narrator: Samantha Cook 
I liked how she played her parts and it was fun listening too. Another one that should be listened too so you do not analyze their game too much.

  4. Sounds cute. I usually don't go for bets or "games" like that, but if they both have their own angle, it's not as bad.
