Empowerment!

This is book one in this series and gives a little background. I think this story covers a loathe portion of married people. I’m glad Ava and Will still have that spark for each other. I did listen to this on audio.

Refreshing

I really enjoyed this listen, narrator did a great job. What I liked about the story was it wasn’t the usual, it was a rekindling of love that was on the back burner so to speak, how life can get so busy and you refund who and what is important to each other

Enjoyable!!

This was my first book by Melanie James and enjoyed Ava and Will’s short story! Although they were challenged by work restraints and their growing family, the core of their relationship remained strong, loving and intact! It was refreshing to see a group of women who supported one another without cattiness and tearing down one another! Hollie Jackson did a wonderful job narrating!

Ava & Will

Ava and Will are any couple you may know. Happy with kids, their relationship has become a little strained. Will works constantly and Ava is home with the kids. Coming up on their 10th anniversary, they both have some surprises. This is the first book in the Eveiller Drive series and I love it! Melanie James has written a real life couples story that is not only steamy, but has elements we all can understand. I love how these two compromise to make their life even better. It's what a relationship is all about and James captures it perfectly. I am loving the friendships the women have too! Hollie Jackson narrates this series, and she is fantastic. She has such a great catalog of voices and brings them to life with all the women and Will. She has a great pace and reads a wonderful story. I enjoyed her performance.
