Love is the last thing on Jack Harrington's mind when he sets out to meet Andi Walsh's flight. Recently back to work after spending more than a year tending to his comatose wife, Jack is focused on getting through each day and caring for his three daughters. However, the moment he sets eyes on Andrea Walsh, the interior designer who has come to decorate the hotel his company is building in Newport, Rhode Island, Jack begins to wonder if Andi might be his second chance. After a disastrous marriage, Andi, single mom to a hearing-impaired son, isn't exactly looking for love, either, but that's what she finds with Jack.
The two embark on a long-distance relationship fraught with challenges as they balance the needs of their children and dueling careers while Jack continues to care for his wife, Clare. Just when Jack thinks his life is once again settled, he is confronted with a new challenge that tests him in ways he never could've imagined, leaving him to wonder if "happily ever after" is in the cards for him.

I know I have heard this exact same story before, but Audible says it was just added. Does anyone know of the same exact plot from a different writer? I would definitely recommend this book if I didn't feel robbed.
Narration was horrible. Even the sound quality wasn't good. But if you like Marie Force, you'll enjoy the story of Jack, Audi and family.
The story line was expected and somewhat unbelievable. About par with the other stories in the romance genre. MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT was the quality of the recording. Many of the chapters had the same kind of hiss common in the old cassette days. Not worth the price for the quality of the recording alone.
Tell us about yourself!
HATED narration, a breathy want to be sexy voice.... failed.
The story overall was good and narrated by anyone else would have been enjoyable but after just a few hours I couldn't take it any more. I love Marie Force but this narrated is better suited for some other genre/author.
I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print
It's a pity that a good story has been spoilt by the narration
When you cannot tell the gender of who is talking let alone what character it is, combine that with basically an emotionless delivery and its hard to get into what would otherwise be a good book.
As an ebook I would have given this a 3-4
A good narrator should pull you into a book . . .
The art of the blending a good or excellent narrator with the RIGHT good to excellent book to become a much listened to beloved audio book should be a collaboration between the author and publisher.
I struggled to listen to this, even over multiple sessions and I nearly gave up the ghost many times due to the narration.
With a decent narrator I would have given this a much higher score - if fact a good narrator can lift a book to greater heights adding to your enjoyment of and involvement in a book.
I will never read another book narrated by Ms. Fielding
The story line was good but....
She was monotone and breathy you could also hear the mike on and off as well as background noises.
Yes, the story was awesome, but the narrator needed to be more theatrical.
She was good but needed to put more feelings into her performance.
Yes, it is an awesome story about love and how some circumstances will change someone's life.
Looking forward to listening to the second book and see where the characters take us.
I enjoyed the story line of this book more than most. HOWEVER, the narration wasn't as good as it should have been. Also, there was a noise in the background that drove me crazy. It was like an air noise...it would stop at times and then steadily grow to a deafening distraction.
The storyline in the book is a little predictable but overall it was a good book. The character development is very good in the story. It is a little easy to get lost as the narrator has voice changes, but not significant, between the male and female characters. Maybe if the author had used strictly male names for males and female names for female. I got a little thrown off with Jamie (male) and Andi (female) when the two were in the storyline together. All in all a good book, narration was good except for the aforementioned issue.
I enjoyed this listen but found it somewhat predictable and light. While I was happy to stay with it to the end I didn't hesitate to hit the pause button from time to time. Jack's character is well developed and engaging which gives the book strength and emotion. Unfortunately development of other main characters, especially Andrea, relied so much on Jack that they weren't all that interesting on their own. Definitely worth the credit and I will listen to the next book in the series with hopes that it will provide the same emotional experience with less predictability and better overall character strength.
