Publisher's Summary

Marla Kensington is a young, attractive comedian with the ability to make people laugh. It's her gift - her talent. But, what does she do when she meets a man - a man who cannot even see the simple humor in a funny joke - who refuses to smile? 

Beau Brenton is a recent widower who has very little reason to laugh. His wife died unexpectedly, and now he is raising their infant son. Every morning is a struggle for the strikingly handsome father. And, every day brings him closer to the reality that he is all alone. How is he suppose to cope without a wife? What does he know about taking care of a baby? And, when will the pain go away? Beau Brenton is lost and confused. His heart has been broken, and his mind is numb until he encounters a bold, beautiful woman telling jokes on a street corner.

waste of a credit.

I wasted a whole credit on this. it's a stereotypical Bwwm. I seems to me the last couple of these I listened to the female was a comedian or a hooker. so um what u can't write her as a nurse or doctor.

The storyline - the female comic...very hot!

Fabulous storyline wonderfully narrated...I give it a 10! The central characters are grieving adults trying to come to grips with loss of a spouse to Cancer while trying to live again and find happiness for themselves and a stable home for their children.
Socially acceptably behavior and "rules" still hold them in, but they eventually find their way forward.
