Nicholas Hamilton was not in the market for a wife and family until his parents made him an offer he couldn't refuse. If he married Moira, the girl who his philandering twin brother had gotten pregnant, they would give him the money for his software startup company.
Marrying a woman and claiming her child as his seems a small price to pay for the business of his dreams, until he finds himself attracted to his new wife.
Moira can't believe that one night of bad choices means that now she has to marry a perfect stranger. If she can get Nicholas to invest half as much time in their marriage as he does in his new company, they might just have a chance at happily ever after.

💙 A Good Story Epecially w/Romance🔹Audiobooks+Work=Adventures 💫 Enjoy Listening, Debating, & Reviewing with My Book Club🔹No Spoilers 🙊
This is a lazy afternoon light reading book. It is essentially about a modern day arranged marriage and how family struggles with a controlling family can effect your life. The story shows how love can grow despite the situation. I enjoyed the story and it end well but I couldn’t help but feel that something was missing....not sure what..
The narration was a 3 star listen. Because the narrator has deep voice, his male voices sounded very good but the female voices were lacking a bit. (We romance listeners are very fussy about their narrators and tend to be more critical.)
There is Adult language and sexual encounters.
I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review courtesy of Audiobookboom.
I was a bit hesitant about this book at first, I mean Nicholas, the male lead, marries the girl his twin brother, Alex, impregnates?
The story was written in multiple Points of Views which was an added bonus.
It was not as complicated as I had first thought it would be.
The relationship got off to a rocky start but eventually a love was slowly formed.
The narrator, Gary Roelofs did a good job. I think he would do well reading children's stories.

Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
Audiobook - narration, Gary Roelofs, nice deep voice! Good production.
I liked this book, it was enjoyable to listen to, even though there were some characters and character actions that made me want to smack some people!
Moira's dumb fiancé calls off their engagement after deciding he's hot for one of her bridesmaids and Moira withdrawals from the dating scene, BUT, one night in Vegas, she meets hot and sexy Alex and proceeds to have a steamy one night stand (with a condom) that apparently didn't work!
So now she's pregnant. Moira herself having been raised by a single parent, decides she'll just have the baby, but she's recently met, got to know and started building a terrific relationship with her birth father and he convinces her that Alex has the right to know. She doesn't want anything from him, but she does believe he should know in case he wants to be a part of their child's life.
Then comes the crazy pants, mostly in the form of Alex's mom. She insists that Moira will Marry Alex's twin brother Nicholas (to save face and protect her political career from scandal) and sweetens the pot with the offer of start-up funds for the software company he dreams of one day starting.
Now we have the makings for a really sweet romance, as they set up house and start learning all the things they really have in common. She helps him with his business, including endearing herself to his staff, and he begins to fully embrace her pregnancy and sweetly cares for her throughout.
We also get to know more about his smarmy brother Alex, his pretty cool father, and put up with more antics from the mom from hell!
Overall, this is just a sweet, light, romance and I enjoyed it!

A Family for Nicholas is a sweet, heartwarming book. The characters are well-developed and likable. I enjoyed the story of Nicholas and Moira and the unexpected feelings they developed for each other. I will be looking for more books by author Jane B. Night. Gary Roelofs" narration was good for the male voices, but a little disappointing for the females.

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. There is quite a bit of drama and an overpowering mother that controls her family's life to the point of forcing her own son to marry a total stranger which claims to be pregnant with his brother's baby. Crazy to think of a mother being so calculating and manipulative.
Moira tried to do the right think and let her one night stand know that she was pregnant and having his baby. In a turn of events, she finds out he had just gotten married and his mother blackmails her into marring his brother! What an insane mother!
Nicholas has always had to clean up his twin's brother's mishaps but having to marry someone to cover for him was not going to happen until his mother bribes him with money to start up his dream company.
The narrator was ok. There is not much difference between female or male characters voices.
The story is written in dual POV which I enjoy. You get to know what they are both feeling throughout the story. It's a HEA conclusion. The characters are interesting and the story sucked me in quickly.

When Nicholas falls in love, and wants nothing more than the baby to his and Moira to be his real wife.
That is a hard question! I love both Nicholas and Moira, but I also felt them a little week in the beginning. More towards the middle of the, they both started to become stronger and stand up to people.
I enjoy reading, listening and reviewing. I enjoy blogging. Doing what I enjoy giving feed back in hopes someone will try a new author.
This was a cute an emotional read with a good plot about an arranged marriage. You have a favorite son who does no wrong, a son that can do nothing right, a controlling mother, a father who goes with the flow, a girl whose one night stand will change her life forever. What Alex want he got without any care to how it would affect anyone else leaving Nick to clean up his messes. This time his mother has gone too far demanding he marry his brother’s one night stand. When his mother sweetens the pot giving him what she has denied him the start up money for his own business he just couldn’t walk away. Moira isn’t given much choice in the matter what Ms. Hamilton wants she gets.
Nick is a very likeable character who has done well for his self even standing in his brothers shadow he has turned out well a son anyone could be proud of that is everyone but his mother. As you are taken farther into the book you will find the reason for this. Nick is just a normal guy doing the best he can with the short in of the stick.
Moira is doing what she think is best by telling the father of her baby about it. Being raised by her mother only she knows how it feels not to know your father and wants to do right by her child. Things do not go as planned when she is given no choice and forced in to marrying Nick.
Mr. Roelofs narration isn’t bad his character voices are pretty good. There are no background noises or any place where the volume is higher than other places. If a break was taken you could not tell. This was a pretty even tone audio with a little emotion. The narrator sounds like he is reading and robotic. He needs to lighten up a little, feel the emotion and become the character he is reading about to make this a smoother listen. If the characters are angry, excited, laughs show it in his voice. He shows very little emotion with most of the audio for the most part you know what the characters are feeling but the tone is not there to give it what it needs. I feel as he does more audios he will grow and get the feelings down. I have listen to other samples of this narrator where he does an outstanding job. This may have been an older audio where he was learning to get the feel of being a narrator. I do look forward to listening to more from him and watch as he grows in his narration.
There will be some characters you will love and others you won’t. If anyone likes his mother I would not want to meet them. His father is a sweet heart just lets his wife control everything. I hope Alex gets a handle on his troubles and things works out for him. I really didn’t care for him at all. It was a story of dealing with the cards life gives you making it a better hand along with trusting, caring, learning to love and give of yourself. It was a touching heartwarming read for the most part. I would have liked to have know how the mother took the move I am sure that didn’t go well along with a few other things I felt was missing. More information is need but it does have a great ending which will leave you smiling.

Moira and Nicholas find themselves in an arranged marriage. Nicholas is the twin that is always used to help the one out of scrapes that he is always getting into. Nicholas father is the one with the money but he is a wimp and allows his wife to dictate everyones life. She blackmails Moira into the marriage but in the end Nicholas and Moira are the ones who win because they actually find happiness. Which is something the mother-in-law/momther is searching for.
Not sure if I like the narrator. His voice was not exactly what I like in a narrator.

This book had an interesting premise. Nicholas Hamilton marries Moira after she gets pregnant with his twin brother's baby. His overbearing mother forced him to marry her so his brother Alex's political career would not be tainted with scandal. In return, Nicholas had his video game company funded. There is a huge rivalry between the brothers, and though Nicholas loves his brother, he cannot get over the fact that his new wife is just another of Alex's leftovers. Over time, Moira begins to integrate their lives, getting to know the employees of the video game company and staff, taking an interest in the things Nicholas is doing. When Moira is diagnosed with an incompetent cervix(after an altercation with brother Alex), Nicholas begins to see Moira is now his family and the baby is his little girl. A few twists and love wins. Very enjoyable story.
The narration was warm and friendly.
