Publisher's Summary

A sexy, emotional stand-alone romance from USA Today best seller Ella James, performed by Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson!

I didn't know I was that person. You know - the one who gets the kids. But that's what the will said. June Lawler: legal guardian. All my sister's kids have ever known is San Francisco, but I have to take them back to our family's small-town farm.

The last thing I'm expecting is the dark car rolling down my dirt driveway. The man who steps out of it is as rich as he is rude, and I want nothing to do with him. Even if my traitor body didn't get the message.

***

My little brother was everything to me. Now even his kids are gone. Spirited away to Heat Springs, Georgia - population 298.

They're living on a farm that's on the brink of bank foreclosure with a 26-year-old who didn't finish high school. Nowhereville is not the place for little Mastersons, but I'll get them back.

"June Bug" Lawler is poorer than the red dirt she comes from. It's money she must want, and I've got plenty of that. I've never met a problem that my money couldn't solve. This country girl won't be the first.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS!!!!!!°

I fell in love with the characters immediately. I loved June' and Burke. This is the first audible that I have listened to by this point author, but it will be my last. The narrators are two of my favorites!!!

Tear jerking, love making FRENIMIES.

I love the story between June and Burke and the struggle between them becoming "THEM" The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I don't care to have political headlines in a story. I prefer to be taken away from the current political climate and focus on the characters and their story. Otherwise, good listen and story.

Heartwarming

What a great enemies to lovers story! June never expected to become mom to her niece and nephew but that’s exactly what happened. Once again, June didn’t question anything, she took the kids in no questions asked. When their uncle from their father’s side comes around thinking he can ‘basically buy’ the kids from her, he’s got a lot to learn about June bug. She is by no means the young, meek girl he believes her to Be. The fight these two have in them is enough for any relationship to come to a combustible explosion of sexual attraction!! Can this evolve to one little happy family???

Be still my heart...

I loved it! I’m a huge fan of enemies to lovers tropes. So while this was gentler than I’m used to, what drew me in was the dynamic between June and Burke which was enhanced by the depth of their personal stories. The narration is excellent and it made my experience of the story so much better.

As good as a soulful southern food

I just finished and I am still chocked up with this story. The characters are awesomely developed and their lives are told with so much sweetness and kindness by the author. I loved this book and the narrators were perfect portraying the accents, the hurt, the hope and the love.

Fun and Sweet and Unique

This story starts off with our characters meeting due to a double family tragedy and then they have to find a way to co-exist in each other’s lives for their siblings children annndddd sparks fly lol The story is really nicely woven how they go from hate to lust to love. This book was performed masterfully by Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson! The southern drawl that Ava weaves is simply stunning! Zach plays a grumpy and emotional man with such beauty. Well done all

Small Town Romance - Heart Ache and Emotion

With the death of her sister, June becomes an instant parent. Although feeling overwhelmed at the task before her she provides the children with love and a stable home. Even if the home she provides is far from what they are used to and is just financially holding it together. What June is unable to provide she makes up for with an overwhelming amount of love. The children's uncle and June's brother in law Burke is less than impressed with the arrangement. Unable to see what June could possibly have to offer his niece and nephew. He heads out to June's property to convince her that he should in fact be the one who is responsible for the care of the children. What he didn't expect was to find a fiesty June and more emotion than he knew was possible.

You can only hide from love and pain for so long!!

How can the enemy come in such a delicious package?? Despite Burke coming in on the aggressive to get his niece and nephew back, he is nothing but heat and sweetness when his true colours shine through. June’s chip on her shoulder usually keeps her heart protected but that only lasts so long against Burke. I laughed at the antics and cried through the pain. The ingredients to a great love story. The narrators did a great job making you feel the characters emotions and go on the journey with them.

Ticked all my boxes

Ella James is a new author to me but after listening to Hate You (Not) that is going to change, I loved everything about this great story and I’m struggling to understand why this author has not crossed my radar before now. I loved the characters, the story and the narration and I highly recommend this to all romance lovers. June’s life has been turned upside down, she has lost her sister and become guardian to her young niece and nephew over night, an accident has left the children without parents but doesn’t mean they are going to be missing out on love. June has picked then up and taken them to the family farm in a small town in Georgia but there is also an Uncle who wants to spent time with his niece and nephew. Burke is a wealthy workaholic who is devastated by the loss of his younger brother and he wants the children with him in California so he embarks on a trip to convince June to let him take the children and that’s when the fun and games begin....... This is a entertaining, sweet enjoyable listen, Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson did a wonderful job bringing the characters and this story to life, the banter made me laugh and the chemistry had me swooning and let’s not forget the one liners only a child can deliver that had me laughing out loud. Great story and great narration made this the perfect audio book. Looking forward to more from this very talented author.

Good sweet enemies to lovers

Enemies to lovers romance, that was sweet and sexy, this is June and Burke's story. a rich city boy and a woman guarding for two children. Their relationship is sassy and hot, their chemistry can't be denied, but not everything is like it seems there are secrets that might change it all. This audiobook narrated by the talented Zachary Webber and Ava Erickson is very well done, they both performed at their best as always bringing the story to life. Definitely worth the audiobook option.
