Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, you get a second chance at love. Sometimes, you hook up with your ex and remember why you broke up in the first place.

Amanda Russo knows better than to give her failed marriage another try, but the brief fling reminds her there’s more to life than work and parenting. When the architect she hires to remodel her bakery turns out to be as charming as she is talented, Amanda finds herself ready to take a chance on new love. The only problem? Her ex-wife didn’t get the memo.

For Quinn Sullivan, the sting of divorce is still fresh. Getting set up by pretty much everyone she knows hasn’t inspired her to give love another shot. Meeting Amanda does. Sure, they’re working together, but that’s not a deal breaker. Amanda’s ex might be another story.

Didn’t love it

I wanted to love this as the premise sounded fun but I just couldn’t get into the characters. Actually stopped listening about halfway through. Hope others enjoy it though.

Excellent!

I loved Twice Shy. I loved the behind the scenes look at a working bakery and an architectural firm. Amanda's grown children add to the story. Loved Amanda and Quinn. Keira Grace did an excellent job with the narration.

An Ex wife and a architect

The choices are hard but keeping a family together is harder. A fun loving problems to old age question is she the right person. A good read to escape to and a nice Happily Ever After.

Great Read

A sweet romance between two 40+ women who have both been burned by their now ex-wives in the love department. Great chemistry & romance between Amanda the town baker & business owner and her architect Quinn who is renovating her bakery. Some great secondary characters like Amanda's son Cal and Quinn's nephew made their scenes apart just as enjoyable. Kiera Grace did a great job with the narration.

wow!!

This was my first book by this author but I have several more lined up. The development of the characters was so incredible that I ended up in a tug of war between the ex and the new interest. It didn't hurt that the sex was awesome.

Loved this

This book was very entertaining, it touched on a lot of things I can relate to. I also love this narrator! She’s amazing she brings personality to the characters, you can feel the emotion in the situation, and she does a great job changing her voice so you can tell which character is talking long before their name is said. It’s a great read I recommend it!

Entertaining

Cute story but in the end seemed to drag.
Narrator was good except i felt like ‘Quinn’ reminded me of a robot speaking.

I would say a fun read but i doubt i feel like jumping back in and listening to it a 2nd time. ti it

Not the best I listened to written by Aurora Rey, but good enough. Good characters, i liked that it was with not very young women.

Too formulaic.

You've read this one before, probably several times. I found the kids annoying, to the point where I started skipping ahead, and the adult protagonists didn't seem very mature to me. At least, I expect women who are old enough to have children that age to be more confident.
