Hallie Cavanaugh's late father just left her millions of reasons to stay away from Jim Lawson, deputy sheriff of Paradise, Idaho, and the man who broke her heart fourteen years ago. Hallie has worked hard for independence, but she can't dismiss a massive inheritance, even if she has to follow her father's manipulative terms to get it. How hard can it be to spend six months back in Paradise - and not sleep with her old flame?

The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was 14, and I’m still not over her. Problem: She still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last 15 years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

I laughed and cried, oohed and awed. Sadie and Liam are wonderful. And it just shows that no matter how much psychological education you have, those childhood fears still come through and threaten to sabotage every thing. I found Amy and Kate to be hilarious and adorable! Love Teddy Hamilton’s voice too.

I love all the Mackade brothers but I may love Devon most. The love he has for Cassie and her children is so great it simply warms my heart. There are definitely moments of tears, some anxiety and also happiness. Great love story.

This is the second Heidi Cullinan book I've listened to and I loved it. The characters are so real and we come to know them and care about what happens to them. I laughed and I cried. Great book. I'm sure I'll listen to it again in the near future.

Paradise, Idaho, may not be the largest town, but for newly minted professor Zoe Santangelo, it's the first step on the path to her big break. After teaching in a small Idaho school, her next stop is the Ivy League, and no one is going to stand in her way. She'll do what it takes to move up, to protect her students from a creepy campus stalker - and to protect her heart from Cal Jackson, the hot, hunky cowboy who keeps coming to her rescue.

I love Rosalind James books and Gris was no exception. So well written and a bit of a scare in this one. The narration was so great too. I loved that it was actual male and female voices in conversations...not a guy trying to sound like a girl or the girl trying to do a mans voice. And both voices were great! Now I have to wait until December to get Luke's story! Thank you Rosalind for sharing these stories with us!

This book went beyond my expectations in that we were privy to Christians nightmares. And getting to see how vulnerable and unsure of himself when it came to Anna was touching. Also getting to listen in to a session with Dr. Flynn was very revealing .
This is beautifully narrated. I've listened to all of the books that Zachary Webber has read and when I discovered that he was the narrator, I was delighted. He was the perfect choice for Grey!

Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional, and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic's concerned. They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all. Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.

It was great how Emerson and Abby found each other twice and ended up together despite their hardships. This book would have been so much better if the reader hadn't been racing to the end. Going more slowly, having pauses, using more expression would have made this book so much better.
