Publisher's Summary

Alyssa Morgan has secretly been in love with her older brother Nick’s best friend, Brandt Dempsey, since she was an awkward, lonely teenager. When she catches the bouquet at Nick’s wedding, she throws caution to the wind and propositions Brandt to a two-week fling. He’s tried to ignore how Alyssa has blossomed into a strong, talented, gorgeous woman because as his best friend’s baby sister, she’s off limits.  

After they share a mind-blowing kiss, Brandt struggles to fight their undeniable chemistry. His tragic childhood scarred him, but he pushes it deep inside, only allowing the world to see a wealthy, carefree entrepreneur. Forced to work together on Brandt’s latest charitable venture, Brandt and Alyssa’s passion cannot be denied. Alyssa knows he’s the one. Can she convince him they belong together?

Can You Make Someone Commit To You?

Alyssa’s brother, once a player, is married. She has loved his best friend Brandt, since a teenager. A kiss once under the mistletoe causes her to believe he feels the attraction too.
Brandt doesn’t believe he can or should have a relationship.. fighting his attraction he eventually falls to his need for Alyssa and she believes he can change just like her brother.
Romantic tension, conflicting emotions..is it nature or nurture that defines us?
An excellent romantic, sweet, angst and heartbreaking and mending story.
Narrator was great, emotion, both sexes..pacing and tone.

Sweet and Sexy

29 year old Alyssa finally kisses Brandt at a New Year's Eve party. Sparks fly when lips meet. She catches the bridal bouquet at a wedding and sets her sights on the one person she's loved most of her life, Brandt.
Brandt knows Alyssa is off limits, she's the baby sister of his best friend. But after the explosive kiss they shared on New Year's Eve can he stay away from her?
This audible is definitely worth taking the time to listen to can the time to listen to!!

Erin Bateman breathes life into a story thats already very good.

I received a copy if the book free at my request and am happy to leave a review

Worth the Time!

I found this story to be really good, in fact I will be reading the previous one (Finding Forever in Laguna). This author did a great job with her characters and the story seemed to flow endlessly. The narrator did a good job with both characters. This was my first book by this author but will definitely not be my last!

Finding Forever in Laguna

At Last in Laguna is the second book in Finding Forever in Laguna series by Claire Marti. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Marti, but I’m definitely going back and listening to the first book in this series. This book had me laughing out loud at times and then wanting to throw my phone across the room at others. The book flowed smoothly and the narration by Erin Bateman was spot on. Alyssa and Brandt both have problems but they have such chemistry. They just need to find a way to trust each other. This is a great book and I highly recommend the audio.

Last in Laguna Review...

Pretty good story that tried to bring in some social issues. Narrator needed to differentiate a little more between male/female characters. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Within our flaws are our strengths.

LOVE. How can a simple word cause such complicated emotions? Just when we think we have our hearts figured out, there's always more baggage tossed our way. At Last in Laguna takes a look at both sides of the coin. The enticing devil on the shoulder and the ever optimistic angel of the heart. Marti blends serious subjects with the overwhelming benefits of love. She finds hope where there almost seems to be none. Alyssa and Brandt have to decide if their powerful emotions are worth the heartbreaking trip down memory lane. There are pieces of Alyssa and Brandt in us all. The self-doubt, the fear of taking a chance and the hope that happiness is just around the corner. Within our flaws are our strengths. That is a point that Ms. Martini makes loud and clear.

Great Second chance!

Claire Marti wrote a familiar story with characters that pulled you in. Lagona comes across as an affluent community, that unfortunately has some social issues. Brandt in this book did not have a perfect childhood and wants to make better for others. I loved how he cared for the child in this book. Alyssa and Brandt have known each other for years. They have great chemistry and yet try to fight the attraction. The performance by Erin Bateman in this book was great. I enjoyed her eloquence and emotions she put into the characters. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
