Publisher's Summary

Ex-marine. Ex-wife. Ex-hausted. 

I left my brothers in the marines to start a family. I left my ex-wife when that family drove her to drink and drugs. Now all I have left is my son - and he's all I care about.  

I can't afford to make another mistake. And the girl who moved in next door? Mistake written all over her. She's got the sweetest smile, the hottest damn curves, and behind it all...a haunted look. I can't take my damn eyes off her. 

My powerful body and coarse attitude make her nervous - and as she tries to start a new life away from her abusive ex, she has her own reasons to stay away. But we can't help it. We're f--king drawn to each other. And when she tells me how much she wants a baby...I make every mistake in the book. Because I want a family again. 

I want her. My son. And a baby. And when her past comes calling...I'll fight to hell and back to keep it.  

Contains mature themes.

Painful writing great narrators

If you enjoy being told every tedious thought rather boring characters have over and over and over and over again this book might be for you. Mr. and Ms. Worthington did a great job with what they were given and I will seek them out for further listening but not this author.

D’awwww

My very first book by this author and definitely not my last. I loved the single dad theme with a the thrilling side story. It lent to an audio that I couldn’t stop listening to.

John Lane and Veronica Worthington were excellent narrators. They became the characters and kept me engaged in the story with their tone and inflections, even when portraying the characters of opposite sex.

💕 Yummy

This book is absolutely great. Enjoyed how it slowly builds up to the finale. Military man retired who falls in love with a lil school teacher. Did they make good music together absolutely. He has a son and she loves him as if he were her own. Enter the asshole ex boyfriend and his ex wife the mess hits the fan. The narrators did an excellent job. The book was no struggle to listen or read. I had both. Well wrItten book and I am on my way to find something else by this author. 👍👍

Great read!

I really liked the narrators! they made the story really fun and exciting. I almost wish there was more character development as the storyline was really good but overall, a great read.

Worst book ever

This book is horrible. You can tell this is a book that was transformed from a book that was probably released in England to a book that was released in the US. Who ever heard of coffee whistling? The author barely made the effort to change things so you're left with a book that is just cringe worthy.The author had no idea how thing work in the US. She didn't even know how the hospital system works here or that we don't have coffee that whistles. I'm not against book that are released in the UK or England but I don't know why they felt the need to change a few things to make it sound like the characters lived in the US. The whole book was just terrible even after you get past all the treble transformations.
