Two years ago Journey Cummings spent two of the best weeks of her life with the man of her dreams, until he left her without even a goodbye....
Journey has spent the last two years trying to find the man who left her high and dry after two blissful weeks together, but he seemed to have dropped off the face of the Earth. With no hope in finding the father of her son she tried to just move on, until a chance encounter changed everything.
Dylan Carmichael knew he messed up when he lied and walked away from Journey two years ago, but it was over and there was nothing he could do about it now....
That is until she walked into his brother's reception on the arm of another and dropped the biggest bombshell: He has a son.
Can Dylan prove to Journey that he won't walk away again and can she trust him with her heart and their son? When tragedy strikes, can Dylan be man enough to keep their new little family together before it falls apart?

It should be noted up front that this is Book 3 of a series.
Immediately, I got the feeling that this wasn't the 1st book of a series, but on Audible it's not labeled as being in a series. Heading over to Amazon, you'll find this is book 3. I'll be going back and reading the first two. Those characters were in this book and I found them engaging.
I really enjoyed this book but couldn't give it 5 stars because of the grammar and 'wrong word' mistakes in it, such as emancipated instead of emaciated. Those are kinda different. Also...well...everyone was just so darn polite! That seemed unrealistic.
In the beginning, I wasn't sure I'd like the heroine or the hero of this book. She seemed a bit weak (it may have been the narrator making her sound whiny) and he... Well, "jerk" would be a nice assessment, but they came around. She was stronger than I thought, and he was not so much an @ss. Of the two, I liked him best. I was glad I stuck it out. The book plot and characterization were similar to a traditional Harlequin-type book, but since I like those, it wasn't a problem for me where it might be an issue for others.
I particularly liked the secondary characters. They were well done and interesting. The strong sense of family and community made the story seem more real. The main love relationship of the story was sweet, and when I got to the end, I believed in their HEA without question. Overall, I found this to be a nice, easy read without too much angst or conflict. It was more two people who've made mistakes just getting through life and getting past the problems -- a slice of "real" life story. And that's not a bad thing.
I really liked the story, but the narrator ruined it for me. She reads like that one student who always got nervous when having to read her book report in front of the whole class. Not a pleasant listen. Buy and read the book.
