Publisher's Summary

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair. 

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouthwatering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike. 

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine - or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it....

So does heartbreak.

Aly Martinez is quickly becoming one of my top auto-download authors because over and over again she’s written heartfelt books I can’t put down.. and can’t wait to get back to. This storyline is much lighter than my previous listens by her, it’s a shining example of a 5 star Contemporary romance and it’s a bitter-sweet tale of love, bad timing, second chances and HEA’s.

Tanner and Rita weren’t looking for love.. in fact they were both in the middle of a messy relationship.. but instant attraction, easy banter, soul-to-soul harmony and off-the-charts palpable chemistry made it impossible for either one to walk away. A wronged wife going through a divorce and a heap of self-doubt and a smooth sexy celebrity tv Chef with ex-girlfriend trouble meet. They try to take things slowly, try to find the right pace for their relationship, try to move on from their troubled pasts, try not to hurt one another and try not to fall in love with each other.. but they would spectacularly fail. So what you get is an instant connection between two loveable characters, a delicious budding and building of a sweet relationship, bad timings, a beautiful first then second chance to love, character growth and a dual POV storyline that has a good balance of angst, drama, humor, heat and heart.

Worth a credit? A well-written well-balanced Contemporary Romance brought to life by good narration.. and I loved every single minute. So yes, IMO, definitely creditworthy. This IS a standalone story.. however, it’s also a companion to Porter and Charlotte’s Duet The Darkest Sunrise.

Taking a chance on love!! Highly Recommend!!

Oh my goodness, yes!!
This book was beautiful. I absolutely needed this. Tanner and Rita were the perfect couple. Timing was not on their side but they aligned perfectly.
This story is lighter than what Aly normally writes but it still had all the feels and gave me butterflies in my tummy.
It was the perfect story for Tanner. He’s charming, sexy, funny, and all around a really good guy. Seeing him find the one woman who balances him was so rewarding.
These two together made me laugh too. They have the funniest conversations and say the silliest things to each other and I loved how close they were.
Great start to my listening for 2019.
This was my first time listening to narrator Troy Duran and I really enjoyed his performance. I’ve listened to Emma Wilder once before but for some reason her performance in this story was so much more memorable.
These two nailed it and kept me invested from start to finish.
Definitely recommend!!!
Absolutely recommend.

Loved It

I so enjoyed listening to this book. The male voice mesmerized me and kept me listening. The female was fair. I just did not like the writers version of her. The story was good but I don’t think it’s going to be one I listen to again because of the female narrator. All performance points go to him.
