Publisher's Summary

It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against him: the sexy bastard with a big...ego.

I thought I'd hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.

That is, until he sat next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He's a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me.

I thought I'd give him hell for one, long flight. I didn't expect to like him. I didn't expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me, too. Only in a way I didn't see coming.

If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can't manage. But I'm tempted to say yes. Because the real man beneath those perfect suits and that cool façade just might be the best thing that's ever happened to me. And I just might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart.

Let the battle begin....

Contains mature themes.

Keep going

I almost turned it off in the first 5 minutes because it was cliché and embarrassing but I kept going and it got much better

I am obsessed with this series!! Outstanding!

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! If I loved book 1 of this series I am utterly obsessed with this one. Kristen Callihan has such a way with character development and chemistry, banter and storytelling that there is basically nothing I would change. The narration is spot on fantastic by both Rupert Channing and Charlotte North. It felt effortless to enjoy and become swept in the dynamic of these characters that I just didn't want it to end. I need more stories like these in my life!! ALL THE STARS!!

Swoon.....

4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a fun read! Managed was just as good as Idol. Oh how I enjoy Kristen Callihan writing. Her books always have great character’s with hot chemistry. I loved Sophie Darling aka “chatty girl” easy going personality, she was a breath of fresh air and Gabriel Scott aka “sunshine” was everything I thought he’d be after reading Idol. He definitely gives you a lot of swoon moments. So if your looking for a laid back, no drama, laugh out loud moments this is your book!


Audiobook review: Charlotte North and Rupert Channing did a fantastic job Narrating! 5 stars to both of them.

Loved the French Kiss book ends!

This was a great story, a little on the slow burn side but MAN did they make up for it in the end. Sophie and Gabriel are like the exact opposite of my usual favorite h/H dichotomy: I usually like bookish uptight heroines and heroes who break them out of their shell. Well this is the opposite! We have a bubbly effusive heroine who MIGHT have gotten on my nerves but she has some baggage and history that gave her more depth than her candy cane facade. I loved Gabriel - talk about a hero with depth. Silent waters and all that. I especially loved the “need you to sleep” trope and Gabriel’s flight phobia meet cute (very a’la French Kiss - 90s Meg Ryan movie, check it out!). Over all, loved the book!

Angsty but funny

Broke a string of meh NA books. Fun characters making the most of the opposites attract trope. Surprisingly slow burn after the instalusty start. I love Gabriel’s vulnerability and his Britishness. I adore Sophie’s mischief. Their nicknames for each other are so endearing. They’re so fantastic together.

Great narration.

Audiobook was worth the wait !

From 2016, I already wanted an Audible upgrade. I even asked the author herself when she visited Melbourne AUSTRALIA in 2017.

And the timing couldn't be better, especially when you watch #WandaVision and need a midweek fix, Sophie and Gabriel is like your Alternate Univese Wanda Vision in a modern world.

Also, in a global pandemic, all the rockband travel and touring is like nostalgia of a pre-pandemic world, when borders were open.

Finally, awesome choice of narrators! Kudos to Charlene and Rupert on their talent! To easily switch accents from British English to American English -- truly a delight to listen again and again.

Sunshine and chatty girl

This was a fun read. They banter and sizzle the majority of the time and it just suits their characters so well.

Seeing the unflappably staunch Scottie fall in love was beautiful.

Pretty good

I enjoyed this book for the most part. But I didn’t really care for the male narrator. It was obvious that he was trying his best at a British accent but you can still tell it was fake. I’ve heard worse accents before though. Those I just returned. This one was bearable for the most part. The female narrator was great when reading the male and female parts. Her accents were great too.

Scotttty

What a wonderful performance of my favorite book. The narrators are perfect and bring the band to life while capturing the essence of Scotty and Sophie.

Really enjoyed this book

I have listened to the steam punk titles from this author so this genre was new for me. I really enjoyed the story line and it was well worth the listen...
