Reality is overrated.
Exhausted single mom Daisy Garner is shocked when her blog about life with Darling Husband and Baby Delight in their charming Victorian home brings a national talk show to her door.
Amazing! Except she made the whole thing up.
Panic! Now she needs to borrow a Victorian house and find a man to play her fake husband on TV.
Travis O'Hare steps up for the role, as long as she'll marry him for real. He wants their son to have the stable home life Travis never had.
But before the wedding can happen, Travis and Daisy have to get through the interview with a ratings hungry host and a slick producer with ties to Daisy's troubled past. When a winter storm traps them all, it begs the question: can two people pretending at love finally discover the real thing?

In this beautiful story Daisy Garner came back to her hometown of Clover Park to raise her baby boy and get her life together while having the support of her family and the baby's father, who happens to be the brother of her sister's fiance. While Daisy is struggling with everyday life as the mother of a not so easy Bryce she decides to start blogging about life with her baby and her oh so perfect life when she's not waitressing at her family's restaurant. When a talk show asks for an interview because of the popularity of her blog she's so excited she doesn't think the situation through. She doesn't have a perfect anything and she's scrambling to try to pull off an epic act and fool the world. Travis in the meantime is happy to play along but his act come with stipulations. He wants them to be a family and this may just be the way to reach that goal but then again maybe not. With Daisys ex thrown in and all kinds of obstacles can these two people overcome it all and find a way to love and live together. Beautifully narrated and full of laughs, fun and sweet and sexy moments that will keep your ears and heart happy. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites!
What a fun book to listen to! The storyline was great, there were enough twists and turns to keep it interesting, the characters were well developed, the humor, especially with Gran, was really good, and there was plenty of sizzle between Daisy and Travis. Even if Daisy couldn't do it all she could have it all once she figured it out with Travis, and wow it took her long enough!!
The narrator did a good job with the many characters in the story. He made it easy to stay interested. I would listen to more books done by him.
I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions are my own.
Daisy has always been the family screw-up. She’s the one that never followed the rules, and usually got caught. And now she’s had a baby.
Travis was always his family’s wild child. But when he finds out he’s a dad, he steps up and shares the responsibility of raising his son with the baby’s mother. He’d like to make them all a family, but Daisy doesn’t want that. Until she does – at least for a little while. And then things get a little crazy…
Kylie Gilmore has written an entertaining story full of humor. Daisy and Travis could be any young couple, except they get into some of the funniest predicaments. Their families are very involved, and all of the characters are very well-defined and will make you laugh. These are responsible people in the community, with lives and careers.
If you’ve never read stories by Kylie Gilmore, what’s taking you so long?
Charles Lawrence does an amazing job with all of the voices in the audio version of this book. This is a fun one, so enjoy!
I really enjoyed Daisy & Travis story. In it you get more on grandma and the rest of the gang. Max was a added twist that made you want to smack someone now an then . I feel like the narration was smoother in this one . Can not wait to see what happens in the next story of this fun group of people
I received this audibook free from the author to listen to and leave an honest review. I also purchased the ebook because the series is so enchanting. This is the second in the Clover Park series and is just as cute, fun, and sexy as the first book. Daisy is a single mom of baby Bryce and is trying to provide a good home for him. So she decides to make up a loving husband and happy family for a blog that she writes, and it blows up in her face when a talk show host shows up. Now she has to find a real/fake husband. Travis wants to do it but he has a condition...she must marry him for real. This is so cute and funny I laughed out loud! There's also some steamy romance that just fits the bill. I do love Kylie Gilmore's writing because she has wonderful, relateable stories that are good clear pictures, along with excellent characters and great scenes. I also like Charles Lawrence, the narrator, because he has wonderful voices for the characters too.
This is a great book; this is the second book in the Clover Park series and is written by Kylie Gilmore and narrated by Charles Lawrence. Daisy Garner is a single mom and is shocked when her blog about life with Darling Husband and Baby Delight in their charming Victorian home brings a national talk show to her door. The problem is she made the whole thing up. Now she needs to find a Victorian house and a fake husband. Travis O'Hare steps up for the role, as long as she'll marry him for real. He wants their son to have the stable home life Travis never had.
The narrator Charles Lawrence did a wonderful job with this book. He did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.
A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.
I had previously read Daisy Does it all and loved the book and the characters- Kylie Gilmore makes you want to be a part of this small town and family! The narration added a special quality to the book my second time with it! I enjoyed the book even more with the narration!!?read all of the clover park series- or listen to it! You will highly enjoy it😍
One of my very favorite comedic romances.
The first book in this series, The Opposite of Wild, because this is not just your standard romance. The characters are flawed but I still rooted for their happy ending.
Everything! I really enjoyed the different inflections he uses for different characters, and how easy it was to recognize them as I listened. His vocal of a crying baby made me laugh out loud.
Absolutely! I listened to the first 8 chapters last night and finished the rest of the book today due to time constraints. Normally I would start and finish the audio book in one sitting.
I love the pairing of Kylie Gilmore's books and Charles Lawrence's vocal skills and I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series!
Definitely. The story was precious, it made me laugh, I felt for the characters and I'd do it all again.
Martini night. Snowbound with the most hateful woman, the things you find out with a little social lubrication!
Charles keeps the story moving along, his women's voices are a little odd but he gets the character changes.
Definitely, I almost wanted to extend my commute.
I can't wait for the next one!
I think that the experience is completely different. One isn't better than the other but I love how the characters seem to come alive in audio books.
Daisy because she just kept going even when life got complicated. She was a good mom to Bryce and eventually wised up when it came to Trav.
I think I said this from the first book but he just does a really amazing job of bringing the characters to life. When you are reading a book it's just your voice in your head but when you are listening to Charles you can differentiate each distinct character.
Absolutely! Yes! I wanted to know what was going to happen so I had to keep listening.
I love Clover Park and the characters Kylie has created. I feel like I could live there and be friends with them. I can't wait to start Rachel and Shane's story!
