If you have already listen to or read the first two books in the Billionaire Bachelor series, this one is much different and a welcome change for me personally. I was tired of the pig-headed, demanding, and at times, downright offensive male leads in the first two books. (We can have an Alpha male without the misogyny... am I right ladies??)
This book is a breath of fresh air, with a strong lead characters, set on a ranch and far removed from the ridiculousness of the original plot line of Joseph and his emotionally challenged eldest sons.
My advice? Skip books one and two and just read this book as a stand alone! It's very sweet and steamy especially if you're into ranchers ;)
The plot and story line worked for me. I'm a sucker for single moms in needing to be saved.
I loved the beginning. I love getting to know Emily and seeing her meet Mark for the first time. It really set the tone and pace for the rest of the book
This is my first book by Lilly and I really enjoyed her voice. I found it very female, but not too girlie and she sounded like a well rounded mother
hmm.... sweet treat read
My full book review

This is my first Melody Anne book and I did the audio version. I skipped around the series and let’s just say it’s because I am a sucker for single mothers.
Emily is a single mom and looking for work. She lands a job at a ranch as a cook. She’s on the run and we do not know why.
She gets the job through Joseph, but she soon realizes her boss is the son, Mark. Mark is very attracted to Emily.
I love the summary of the book and it was a sweet, feel-good novel, perfect to listen to. I really enjoyed the female narrator. She sounds like a mom, but not too young. Her pace was perfect and the length of the book worked for me too.
I enjoyed the beginning the most because it totally set the story up and it was adorable when Emily finds out who Mark is. I love how Mark pursued Emily and it didn’t matter that she had a son. I also loved the little boy as well. Mark’s family takes Emily in as one of their own and it’s like a said sweet to listen to.
As you progress more in the story, bits of Emily past are revealed and we find out why she is on the run. As her past comes to threaten her stay at the ranch, super alpha male, Mark steps in to save her. I love me my damsel in distress.
A very sweet novel and it won’t be my last from Melody Anne.
The book was decently sexy, that is the best that I can say about it. The plot was weak.
