This book was given in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom. This was a story that worked through a child who turned himself into a billionaire after being abused and neglected. He lost his parents and was sent to live with relatives who did not want him. It is told from the girl's point of view who loved him before he was sent away. When they meet again he has just bought the company she works for. Although a short story, it was complete. There was too much sex for less than a two-hour story. But the story ended well. Dewayne did not become bitter he became an advocate for others who suffered as he had.
Maria and Dwayne grew up together but tragedy stuck and they were separated.
They each have issues to deal wit and Dwayne is not the person that Maria has remembered.
The story line was a bit predictable but it was an overall quick entertaining read, good for the
Lissa Blackwell did ok with the narration.

This short second chance romance had me listening from the beginning and had me til it ended. I love short novellas in between longer books, and this was the perfect escape. Dwayne, a dark billionaire meets up with his childhood next door neighbor, Maria at work. He initially pretends he doesn't recognize her, which was puzzling, but she made sure he remembered. This story while having its steamy scenes, took us on the their journey together, working through Dwayne's troubled past. Since the unexpected death of his parents, Dwayne has suffered greatly, and only Maria can help him through it.
Lissa Blackwell narrates this wonderfully.

A second chance romance. Years apart, separated at 15, the hero and heroine reconnect when he buys the business she works for. At first he acts as if he doesn't know her but she doesn't let that fly. Short audio, less than 2 hours, everything moves quickly so there isn't a lot of development, but it's enjoyable anyway with a HEA. The hero has changed and the heroine is instrumental in helping him.
The narrator at times was a bit fast, but has an enjoyable voice and pretty good timing. If you are looking for quick entertainment and don't want to invest a lot of time, this is perfect for you. Has steam, without a doubt!
"A Great Short Story"
Though this is only 1hr 27mins long, it's a great listen and covers a lot and packs a punch.
Lissa Blackwell did a great job of bringing the story to life.
This is a great short story and well worth a listen.

"Short and sweet but a little lacking"
An easy, short and sweet romance about childhood sweethearts lost and found. For a story so short it has a little of everything including tragedy, romance, passion and a sweet HEA. I thought that the story covered some difficult subjects that deserved a bit of depth, especially because of the effect they had on the main characters' relationship. But they were skimmed over, which was a bit disappointing. I suppose that is the nature of a short story. What also struck me was how parts of the story sounded a lot like a teenagers/young adult's diary.
