Her love is…
Working the graveyard shift as a waitress, single mother Jessie Mann has no time to waste on a Texan with big dreams and a skinny wallet. And that’s just what she sees when Jack Morrison ambles into the diner where she works. After a childhood of financial instability, Jessie swore she’d do better by her son. But with Christmas just around the corner, saying no to Jack and his cowboy good looks is easier said than done.
All he wants for Christmas...
As the heir to the Morrison luxury hotel empire, Jack Morrison is tired of women drooling over his wealth. He wants a woman who will love him for him - and he thinks he’s found her when he meets Jessie. To be sure, he conceals his true identity and offers to help Jessie find the rich husband she seeks. But will Jack’s matchmaking game backfire and cost him the ultimate Christmas gift?

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! ;)
I wanted to try a new author (new for me) so I gave this story a shot. And what a pleasant surprise I got! I don't like to give spoilers so let's just say this is a secret millionaire meets poor single mom. It's a cute interesting love story. It is set around Christmas time so it was extra special to listen to it during this time. I'm happy to see this is a series! I hope the next book is about Jessie's sister.
Narration: this is the first time I've listened to a book narrated by Amy McFadden and I was not impressed. She was just ok. She needs to really work on the male voices. Hopefully the next book in the series will have a different narrator.
Note: although this book has a less-than-desirable narration I still recommend it. Very cute contemporary romance story similar in style to Susan Mallery.
This is a great first book in a romantic series. The narration is average, but the story between a rich man and a single mom is very cute. Can hardly wait for more in the series.
I actually finished this and it was sweet. I would probably give it 3.5 stars. The narrator was good but not great with southern accents. I am from the south and I can promise you, we don't sound so dumb.
A very sweet well paced plot with an interesting premise about love and money. Very engaging characters and wonderful secondary characters. The story is about a very rich guy who hides his wealth to find a woman who loves him and not just his money. He meets Jessie, a poor waitress and single mom and he is quickly quite taken by her. He hides his wealth from her and pretends to have a temporary job at the hotel that in actuality he owns. Jessie's experience with love was from watching her mother constantly falling in love with losers as well as Jessie's own share of bad experiences. Her only desire is to provide her son with a better life than the one she had. Of course, she thinks what they need is a rich stable man not a poor guy or a dreamer. She resists Jack's charms and decides all she wants with him is a platonic relationship. Ha! So she thinks! Jack is wonderful, charming, caring, funny and generous to both Jessie and her son. All goes to hell in a basket because of his deceit. I think the end was somewhat rushed and actually would like to see a sequel.
This story was fun. The author engaged my imagination from the first chapter. It is a light read, We need books like this to take you out of heavy novels at times. I really liked all these characters. The encounters were believeable. The narration was superb...perfect for this book. I recommend this book if you want a story that is interesting and takes you to that feel good place. Thank you Ms. Bybee for perfect timing...smart dialog.
Finally finding time to enjoy my first love... "reading" ... in a whole new way that fits into the busy schedule of this home care nurse and mom of three.
Regarding the book: I figured it would be the usual formula for a romance novel...going in with that expectation..it was still lacking for me. The heroine was a little too whiney for my tastes.
Regarding the Audible Narration: I have listened to many audible books...this was definitely not the worst but certainly not one of the better ones either. The narrator made the female love interest's voice "lispy" at times which was distracting and a bit confusing because it made her sound too much like her sister's voice. The male voices were mediocre at best and the Texas draw left much to be desired.
This book was delightful. It had everything I was looking for, for a relaxing non nail biting book. I read/listen to so many that have me so tensed up I can hardly stand it! I do enjoy those other books but every once in awhile it is nice to just listen.
Yes, it was a fun listen that I really enjoyed.
The narration was mostly good. The lady has a nice voice that I enjoyed. For the main character, though, she'd sound a wee bit "valley girl" to me at times. But all in all she was quite pleasant to listen to.
Worth a credit for those who enjoy a romantic love story with likeable characters. I was bummed when it ended.
I have and love them both the narrator is wonderful and the story is sweet and entertaining and I could listen over and over again
The relationship between the two main characters and storyline flows nicely
yes and I love her she does and incredible job
Great series and I will continue purchasing
♥♥Hooked on Audio Books♥♥
She is so easy to listen to and brings each character to life in their own unique way.
It made me laugh and melted my heart at the same time!
Definitely looking forward to more in the "Not Quite" series by Catherine Bybee!
