Description

The last thing Sara Flannigan needs is a man in her life. When she returns to her hometown, she vows to create a happy life for her son and to rebuild her life after a painful divorce. Yet when she meets her son’s new doctor, she can’t deny the spark of attraction that heats between them.  

The problem? He’s Harrison Thornton, the oldest son of the illustrious Thornton family. His family would never accept a woman like Sara, a woman who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. She tries to ignore the whispers of her past, but she soon realizes secrets can never stay hidden for long. Especially from the man claiming her wounded heart.  

Growing up in the rich and powerful Thornton family, Harrison has lived a charmed life. A renowned physician, the last thing he expects is to desire the mother of one of his patients. Sara is beautiful and intelligent, and she’s completely devoted to her son, something that only deepens his attraction to her. He doesn't want a single night of passion, though: He wants forever. Yet there are forces at work and people determined to tear them apart. Even Sara turns from him, certain she's unworthy. 

Harrison refuses to let Sara slip away, and soon, he’s fighting the greatest battle of all: the battle to win the heart of the woman he loves.

Great Beginning of Series Stand Alone

I received the 2nd book free so I bought this one, the 1st. You don't need to do that because they are each stand alone. However, this in excellent story. The narrator did a great job of providing an excellent story. Looking forward to the next in this series. The narrators did a good job with the characters and their personalities.

Sweet and Sexy!

This was my first Iris Morland's book and won't be my last. This is the first book in The Thorntons Series, a small town story. This is a great introduction to this Series. Sara and Harrison's story is sweet and sexy. Sara's son is adorable. I loved this story, the characters (maybe not all characters), the storyline, and the happy ending. Heather Costa and Jeffrey Kafer did a great job with the narration. I love their voices together. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook, and can't wait for the next book in the Series. #AudiobookObsession

A sweet yet steamy story

OMG, who could ever resist a gorgeous, rich, doctor? Sarah is so lucky to have Trace after a horrible marriage. Trace is everything Kyle is not. I instantly fell in love with the idea of them. Only had to wait until Sarah did too. Trace is so kind, understanding and protective. Sarah has been hurt so badly, her trust issues win more times than not. With having dealt with a sick child, Sarah is stronger than ever. She also had a reputation that is hard to forget. The few twists were perfectly written and added so much drama to this story, I was hooked. I could not stop listening.

Heather Costa and Jeffrey Kafer brought this story to life. They both have voices that are easy to listen to and even easier to get lost in. Heather is the perfect Sarah. Heather's ability to bring out all of Sarah's emotions so that I felt them too was amazing. Her male voices were easy to distinguish. Jeffrey is a wonderful Trace. Jeffrey helped to create the strong, protective and loving character that Trace is. His female voices were smooth and did not feel forced. I look forward to hearing more from these two.

loving someone out of your league...

Sara Flannigan and Harrison Thornton couldn't be more wrong for each other. After all, she grew up poor, with an alcoholic mother, basically raising her younger sister, and living with the stigma of being the HS slut. Harrison, was in college when she was in HS but Sara was aware of the eldest Thornton, and his wealthy family. Now she's back home, 10 yrs later, with her 1st grader who's a cancer survivor, and his pediatric oncologist is the dashing Dr. Harrison Thornton. The chemistry between Sara and Harrison is palpable but can the relationship even get off the ground with the town against them? This is a well written story, with a meddling, manipulative mother who is intent on destroying the relationship...will it survive or will Sara give up? Throw in Sara's tool of an ex and you have the right amount of angst. Good story...looking forward to more.

Relatable Romance that got me hooked!

Most people can somehow relate to the damage that High School rumors can have on people long-term. We all know someone who was "slut shamed." Most people can also relate to the class system that happens in High Schools, that separates and alienates people. We all know how complicated family politics can be. The Nearness of You brings all of those familiar themes front and center in a relatable and believable way. It's also a story about the fierce love that mother's have for their children.
Of course, The Nearness of You is a love story, so it includes some juicy scenes. In fact, the love story is super hot, partially because the narrators completely commit. The female narrator, Heather Costa, brings steam to the sex scenes, without performing or over doing it. She doesn't back off and seems completely immersed in what's going on in the scene. The male narrator has a super sexy and masculine voice that commands attention. At the same time he allows a natural vulnerability to shine through in his performance, making him all the more lovable. It's basically a love story about two people from opposite sides of the track that fight like hell to make it work. I loved it!

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this story when I originally read it. Going back and listening did nothing but remind me just how much I like these characters!

Sara is strong and independent. She is picking herself back up after yet another rough time in her life, but she is determined to give her son the life she always wanted. I love her resilience! At times, she is a bit too independent, but I loved watching her learn to lean on those around her who love her.

Harrison is pretty close to perfect. He sees Sara for who she really is and is all in from the beginning. I love his persistence and determination. He works hard to prove to Sara that he is exactly what she needs with the help of an adorable little boy. I love that he values Sara and her son and refuses to let anyone change his mind no matter the cost.

This is a great series opener, because I am fully invested in ALL the characters. I can't wait to listen to more of this series!

The narration for this book was great as well. I enjoyed listening and will definitely check out more from these narrators!

Can they overcome their pasts to find lasting love?

The Nearness of You is the first book in The Thorntons series. Sara hasn’t had the easiest of lives, but she’s a fighter. When she notices her son is having symptoms of his cancer possibly returning, she takes him to the doctor. Harrison is his doctor, from a wealthy family with everything he could have ever needed, yet still wanting more. Immediately, Sara and Harrison hit it off, but can they overcome their pasts and reputations to find lasting love?

This book is so sweet and really makes you think about the blessings you have in your own life. Sara and Harrison were amazing together, and I loved that their love rang so true. Sara was such a fighter for everyone else around her, had a caring and giving nature, but when it came to her own self, she was scared to reach for her own happiness. Harrison was wealthy, but cared more about the character of those he surrounded himself with, and I loved how willingly he was able to fall for Sara! Together, they had quite a few obstacles to overcome, but the ending of this book was absolutely perfect! There is quite a bit of small town drama that goes on in this book, but really, it just drew me in that much more! I loved having the duel narrators, as they really brought both characters to life that much more for me! They did an amazing job with their characters, the emotions felt, and I often felt like they were talking to me, not just to their selves. I loved this book! I love this series, too!
