Audiobook Review: Ace in the Hole (Wild Cards #1) by Ava Drake, Narrated by John Solo

Surveillance, seduction, and extra-dirty politics.

Christian Chatsworth-Brandeis has a problem. A huge one. The US senator he works for has run away with his latest mistress on the eve of a make-or-break fund-raising event, and it’s up to him to cover his boss’s irresponsible tracks.

Stone Jackson, the senator’s new bodyguard, looks enough like the senator that, with some extensive grooming, he might pass for Senator Lacey. Christian and Stone hatch a plan to fool everyone by substituting Stone for the senator, but Miami madness and the incendiary heat between them are throwing obstacles in their way. It’s a race to find the senator and pull off the con of the century before the attraction between them spins completely out of control.

Listening Length: 5 hours 43 Minutes
Narrator: John Solo

Well that was some fun shenanigans. Slightly unbelievable, but fun nonetheless. 

I knew what I was getting into when I picked up this book from the Dreamspun series. I knew it was going to be Harlequin-esque and I went with it. I can say I'm glad I took a chance on this series.

Christian worked for a d-bag senator. There was a death threat to him so they hired Stone as a bodyguard. When the senator took off without a word with his mistress, Stone was used as a fill-in for speeches and whatnot. Since he just happened to look so much like the senator.  

This forced Stone and Christian to work pret-ty close. Which, of course, only ramped up the delicious sexual tension. They were really great together and I loved their chemistry. 

There was some family angst and some drama surrounding their relationship. Especially since Stone wasn't going to be around forever. Once this job for the senator was done, he was done. But even that angst was light. This was mostly a fun and fluffy romance. 

John Solo did a nice job narrating. He had good voices and intonation which made for an enjoyable listen. He's a narrator I'll be looking for in the future. 

Ace in the Hole was my first from the Dreamspun series and it won't be my last. They're perfect for a light and fluffy romance.
