When Ashley married Jeff she looked forward to their life together, but never considered the many ways becoming an instant mom could rip them apart. Her love for Jeff means more to her than anything in the world. However, never having kids of her own left her unprepared for the changing family dynamics. As her new step-kids test the boundaries, all hell breaks loose. Can Jeff rein them in before it costs him his marriage or was the marriage doomed from the beginning?

This couple really works hard to get back that spark. I have read the book but listening to it makes it so real.
All this books in this fantastic series. They each are about a couple who have to endure many obstacles in some cases to get back that spark in their marriage and in their lives.
The narrator brings this couple forefront and I actually thought I was right there.
I really did enjoy listening to this book and yes I listened to it in one sitting.
Fantastic couple, they really have some obstacles with older kids and the whole step mom , step kids dilemma

I've listened to several of Hollie's performances and she always does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.
Yes, and I did.
I love this series by Melanie James. We get a glimpse into issues a married couple actually goes through. Each book is different, but all couples work through their problems together.
Being a step parent isn't an easy job especially when they are teenagers and acting out after the divorce. In this story of the series Jeff has to step in and set things right in his house before it is too late to save his current marriage.
Ashley is having issues with her step kids, and Jeff, her husband, isn't much help. I was cracking up with the her "revenge". Jeff's reaction to actually seeing what Ashley has been dealing with. I would have loved to have seen this one expanded more. But thoroughly enjoyed it as is.
I love how Ashley and Jeff even though they love each other have their faults. They are experiencing issues that any couple who remarry with children experience.
This is my first time ready a series like this with married couples dealing with issues they are having in their marriage. However, it won't be the last!
Yes, I've listened to several of Hollie Jackson's performances and this one is stellar like every other of her performance! I look forward to listening to many more audiobooks read by her!
Yes, and I actually did listen to it in one sitting!
Melanie James has done it again! I love the way she has the capacity to write such short stories that have a powerful punch!
Jeff coming home to his daughters disaster!! And having to deal with it!
In this story Ashley!
I really felt for Ashley as she discuses never being able to have her own children. And realizing that her own stepmother was not a bad person. These were really heartfelt moments in the story. And of course Jeff realizing how much Ashley did for them and how bratty his daughter was!!! And that he had not been dealing with this issue.
