Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Ava Harrison comes a sexy new stand-alone romance novel.

I was done with love. When I opened my heart, it was for the men I couldn't have. The unattainable ones. The ones who would hurt me. A vicious cycle I couldn’t seem to stop. But I had a new resolve. Focus on my career. Stay single. And then I met him. 

Jace Montgomery. A wounded widower with two young kids. He was exactly everything I was avoiding. So I did my best to stay away.

But then he kissed me. And I fell. Hard. Hard for a man who would never be mine.... A man who was broken beyond repair. A man who would break me.

Wow! Beautiful Story!

I absolutely love this story! I think this is my favorite book written by Ava Harrison. I haven't read Trans.fe.rence (Preston and Eve's story), but I will! This story is so beautifully written and realistic. The main characters, Sydney and Jace, are great together and we can feel their connection. They share a strong and really intense chemistry. The little ones, Avery and Logan are so cute! Jace's a broken and dysfunctional man and he's just so handsome! But I have to admit that I wanted to shake him sometimes! Sydney's a beautiful and strong character, so protective and supportive. My heart broke for her so many times! I didn't want this story to end and I loved their HEA. The narration was perfection. Both narrators did an amazing and believable interpretation. I TOTALLY recommend this audiobook. I have read/listen this story.

A HEARTFELT STORY FLOODED WITH FEELS

Ava has written a heartbreaking story about loss, tragedy, a broken family, compassion and the healing power of love. It’s tragic, beautiful, raw, compelling and is packed full of emotional feels.

Jace is a grieving widower lost in his world of regret, heartache, pain and denial.. he’s getting through his days by ignoring his children, burying his emotions, drinking away his anguish and drowning his thoughts in work. He’s wealthy, successful and his high-powered Asset Management business his father started is a good escape to numb his pain.. and, for a year, it worked.. but he’s a shell of a man, he’s bitter, tortured, anti-social and an absentee father, sibling, son and friend. Then it’s his brother’s wedding but numbing his heartache with drink isn’t working anymore.. because the happy couple’s touches, kisses and loving looks reminds him of what he once had.. memories haunt him.. and the regrets torment him.. then came Sydney. She offered a shoulder to cry on, a ear to listen to his grief, a loving heart to give all and she would also offer him a lifeline, a chance to change and an opportunity for absolution.. but would this broken man see it, grasp it, cherish it, nurture it and love it?. No, never, absolutely not, well maybe but, perhaps only if, no strings, no labels, no expectations and definitely no promises of any type of a future together ever!!

Now listen to this heartbreakingly beautiful dual POV story as solid lines become blurred, impenetrable walls begin to crumble, feelings fill fractures in a broken heart and love is the catalyst for forgiveness, for redemption, for healing and for a family to rise from the ashes reformed, meshed together by love and made whole again. Because Sydney’s compulsion to fix what’s broken comes from her good soul, her compassion is limitless, her patience is endless, her forgiveness is real and her capacity to love is beautiful.. but she’s going to need every one of these virtues to breathe life back into a broken man.

Worth a credit? Yes.. Ava Harrison, Grace Grant and Sebastian York.. their talents are endless and combined they made this a solid five star listen.

Exhausting

Grace Grant and her character are so annoying in this audio. Ugh. I couldn’t finish after chapter 20. Self righteous and judgemental are not attractive character traits.

Loved the storyline

This was a great overall story but the narration...ugh. Love Sabation and Grace was fine in a female but when Jace is talking in Grace's "male voice" it's unbearable to listen to. It's like "he" grunts...very bad. I will read the book sometime and enjoy it much more.

a sad love story about lost

loved this story it was kind of sad with Jace who lost his wife and has 8year old twins. he is a workaholic and drinks a little to much trying to drown his misery. Sydney comes in his life and she brings happiness and love.

Perfection

I love Grace Grant and Sebastian York, I read all the books they narrate. With that said, it’s been a while since a book made me tear up a few times. Ava Garrison has a winner here. A great story.

Tortured character, but beautiful story

The male character lead in this story is a tortured soul due to tragic events in his personal life for which he feels responsible.
The premise is heavy, but the author does a great job of expressing her story in an entertaining way. I was pulled in to the emotion - the angst, torture and the beauty too - as he struggles to get to a point where he feels he deserves to be happy and is willing to actively pursue a new path. The author is able to pull the reader in to a dark, difficult topic, but not depress or weigh down the story.
