Beth Danube's emotionally abusive husband is dead and buried. So is her heart. It's no big deal, she has all she wants: her three little boys and a fresh start in a small Alberta town. What she doesn't want is another man in her life-not now, maybe not ever. After ten years of unsatisfactory, missionary-position sex, she never expected her libido to reawaken. One look at sex-in-boots Daniel Coleman in a Calgary bar, though, blows the dust off her sexuality. Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth's come-on, Daniel finds himself giving in to the powerful urge to let his normally subdued desires run wild. The lady wants non-judgmental, non-vanilla sex? She's got it-in and out of the bedroom. At first, friends with blazing-hot benefits is more than enough. Then she realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart . . . and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.

"The romance was so sweet and yet very sexy. . . . The series has quickly become a favorite of mine." (The Book Pusher)
I'm an avid reader/listener to a wide variety of books. I enjoy books from historical romance to science fiction.
I really liked this book, I think it was relatable for a lot of women. (except come of the graphic intimate scenes haha) Daniel was so patient and tender but never weak and Beth wasn't a whiney victim. My favorite part was when the oldest boy called Daniel dad. Once again, the narrator did I an amazing job!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Two people with emotional scars find each other in this well written, heartwarming and thoroughly enjoyable listen about family, patience, second chances and love.
When Beth moves to Rocky Mountain and meets Daniel again their story starts off with her just wanting 'non-missionary' sex and, of course, he's only too happy to oblige but he's looking for more from her too - friendship and companionship at least. Daniel's one hot, sexy cowboy but Beth, along with her 3 boys, brings out his thoughtful, loving, tender and caring side and you just can't help but love him for that but Beth's just not ready to trust again.
Their building relationship takes place over the span of a year and in that time their sweet, erotic, touching story encompasses family traumas and sub-plots, the opening of old wounds, secrets shared, some hot sexual chemistry and so they finally begin to heal each other. It's not action-packed, unless you count the sexual 'action' between the sheets, in the barn, up the wall, in the changing room, on the phone and pretty much anywhere else and it includes adult toys too, but it is an enjoyable, emotional and passionate love story.
Vivian Arend effortlessly entwines other Coleman family member's stories throughout this listen too and we get to catch-up on the latest from Blake and Jaxi's story from book 1.
Worth the credit? If you're in the mood for a hot, touching, tender and passionate romance then this is definitely a book for you and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the slow and gentle development of a tight and caring family - so that's a YES.
