Don't ask Claire Keyes. The 28-year-old piano prodigy has never had a regular boyfriend, much less a real romance. Her music career has left little room for friends or family - which is just part of the reason she hasn't seen the family bakery or her two sisters in years.
But now Nicole is sick, and Jesse is AWOL. Despite the fact that Claire can't boil water, she's determined to play caretaker. Connecting with her sisters tops her to-do list...along with falling in love, or at least in lust, for the first time.
Ruggedly sexy Wyatt just might fit the bill. Although he keeps saying that he and Claire come from entirely different worlds, he lights up hotter than a bakery oven whenever Claire is near. If this keeps up, she just might sweet-talk him into her bed...and her life.

I was reluctant to purchase this book because of the other written reviews, but the summary of all three books in the trilogy convinced me to take a chance. I'm glad I did. I had either listened or read all of the Susan Elizabeth Phillips books and was looking for a new author to love. I think I found it. It was a good book. I can't wait to buy the other two. Also, the narrator was the second best I've heard on these audio books. Both the book and the narrator get an A- from me.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
So far I have listened to all of Susan Mallery books on tape and have not been disappointed. I like the fact that she does the entire family. I hate loose ends. I hope I don't have to wait a long time before she does another series.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
That the Keys sister would have been a little nicer to each other. They were so mean and rotten to each other that it became painful to listen to the whole story.
That the Keys sister were sooooo supremely nasty and horrible to each other. Disfunctional family to the next level.
Therese Plummer is the very best narrator that I've ever listened to. She does an amazing job on every character and every story, even on this one that I did not love.
Both of Claire Keys sisters... But then it would not have been a series....
I really like Susan Mallery as an author but this was not her best work... I don't think I'll get the other books in the series....
A good story about sisters trying to reconnect after having very different lives and a lot of misunderstandings. A good give and take and having the courage to look at their life situations, having the courage to see the other person's point of view and yet accept their own life and what it was and what it is now. Oh, don't forget the man and his daughter and the love that develops with one of the sisters. Enjoy, light hearted and enjoyable. Therese Plummer is one of my favorite narrators.
Yes I would recommend to a friend. It's a nice romance, fun to listen to.
Yes, in fact I pretty much did listen to it all in a very short time.
I love a good romance, I am a fan Mallery's stories. This one..... I couldn't even finish it I was so uncomfortable. I usually always muscle my way through horrible books because darn it, I bought it and I'm going to finish it. I couldn't with this one. The characters are so unlikeable and unrealistic! I got so tired of the constant "My life sucks more" from every single character and the constant finger pointing. I just wanted to screem "ARE YOU PEOPLE ALL TWELVE?!". The sisters are all appalling and the main love interest is a idiotic prick. Even if you have heard horror stories about a person, to be that rude and nasty is a sign of someone who needs a therapist. Badly. I have no idea if he or any of the other characters get any better because I don't care enough to find out. All of them did a great job making me hate them enough to hope that they all continue with their horrible lives as punishment for their horrible personalities. The narrator was alright but the characters killed any signs of a good story. I would skip this trilogy.
Anything Therese Plummer reads, I like. But this story was actually pretty "sweet". It had a good story line, and was interesting. I will be downloading the other two books in this series.
Sweet Spot, Sweet Trouble, Sweet Talk. Read them in order. I enjoyed the narrator, characters and story line. I recommend it if you are a light-hearted love story kind of reader. Susan Mallery is always good. Go to her website, send her a message. She will send a personal response.
Addicted to Audible! I'm always listening to something.
If you like books about "poor me" and family dysfunction this set is for you.
In general I like Susan Mallery and book 2 in the series was okay. After reading the reviews of the 3rd book, I'm not wasting my time.
Therese Plummer is my favorite narrator. I would listen to almost anything she reads. She did a really good job in narration. However all of her male voices sound almost identical.
My reaction was "Nicole get over yourself" By the end of the book I very much disliked Nicole's character.
The book should have been about the budding romance between the hero and heroin, Wyatt & Clair. However I felt it was all about Nicole and her "poor me" life. It felt like she never even tried understand anyone's opinion but herself. The romance between Wyatt & Clair was more of a side story.
