Publisher's Summary

Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.

Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend - saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark - forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own - to a different town.

Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch - a baby that is presumably his - Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.

Ehhh. It’s complicated.

So, I actually did like it overall. The characters are just lovable and I was curious about how it would end. But I’m going to say that I liked the last maybe 4 chapters. Maybe 5. That’s when it started getting a small push. Between then literally, nothing happened. We basically played a waiting game but while we waited there could have been more element, I guess. I really only followed it through because I did love the characters. The narrator did pretty well with all the roles she had to play.

Heartfelt and Funny!

Melissa has written another fantastic story! Ben had plenty of money and he looked like a stud in glasses. He was in love with his best friend Aurelia, and she was in love with him. The only problem was neither of them had told each other because they were afraid it would ruin their friendship. Then one day a baby was left on his porch. That brought on lots of laughter because Ben or Aurelia had never taken care of an infant and had no idea what to do. What a hot and plenty of emotions story. Narrator Isabelle Ruther was wonderful putting all the emotions possible into it.

Beautiful and emotional, great narration

Oh, I should have know this was going to be an emotional story because this book follows the Sugar Lake books. During the first half of the book, it was wonderful to see Ben and Aurelia come together and those times with baby Bea made me laugh and miss those times with my little babies. The last quarter of the book was so emotional, especially as a parent. This book made me smile, laugh and cry and it was a beautiful book that really highlights love of many types- the romantic love, the love between siblings and the love of parents and child. Such a perfect start to a new series. I loved it and look forward to the next book in this series.

I listened mostly to the audiobook and Isabelle Ruther was great. While it would have been wonderful to have both a male and female narrator, she played the roles perfectly and was able to actually do a really good male voice. I really enjoyed listening to her tell the story.

loved loved loved emotion intensity

This one provides a bit of unexpected emotional ride, intense anger, and then strong unity and compassion.

Jump in on the beginning of a new series from Melissa Foster. Take flight with a fantastic take off. This was a friends to lovers with a bit more. The ins and outs of Ben Dalton and his love for the one person he wanted more than anyone in the world, Aurelia. Aurelia Stark had forever loved Ben and as things move forward in life she makes a decision that she can no longer wait for him to see her right before his eyes. The one things that draws them closer together and that step closer to what they both one get disturbed by a little hiccup.

Bea was not so much a hiccup as a connector piece. She was just what was needed to push both Ben and Aurelia to open their eyes and their feelings to what could and should be.

This one brings all the characters to life and shows ferocity of some while the compassionate side of other. There are characters to love so much you want more of them and then there are those that make you cry. I have to say that I did have to pull out the tissue. Those last five to six chapters just had me wrapped up tight. I for one can say this was another well loved romance from Melissa Foster and a fab introduction to the life in Harmony Pointe. There were also some interesting cameos from some that I would love to see more of. I look forward to Remy and more from Harmony Pointe.

I found Isabelle Ruther to have some intensity when needed, emotional support at the right times, and vocal depth. Male and female. There were distinctions in characters and her tone of voice was able to carry the various ups and downs of the settings going throughout the story. Thank you.

not for me

Couldn't finish this one. I can't put my finger on exactly what it was about the book but it irritated me. The "sexy" scenes felt forced and more like someone reading about sex from a text book than an honest moment between two people. The story was also very predictable...which is okay if you at least believe it.

Call Her Mine

I received an eArc version of Call Her Mine by Melissa Foster via Netgalley. When I discovered that it was accessible through Kindle Unlimited to read and listen, I decided on taking the audio route. Hence, my review is geared towards the audio version.

Ben Dalton and Aurelia Stark first came on my radar when they were introduced in the Sugar Lake series. Since then I have been waiting patiently for their story.

Call Her Mine is a friend to lovers’ story. Ben and Aurelia have been besties for most of their lives. Their feelings for each other went beyond friendship, but fear and misunderstandings prevented them from expressing how they felt about each other. Aurelia entered relationships, which would go nowhere, while Ben went the route of one-night stands. However, their lives got shook up, when one of Ben’s one-night stands left a baby on his front step.

I have to admit I found the story adorable and heart-warming. I loved how Ben stepped up to the plate to take care of the precious bundle of joy without knowing for sure if he was her father. His actions proved that he was capable of redemption.

I lift my hat to Aurelia. Few women would have stuck around after discovering that the man you have been crushing on has a child with another woman. Instead of running, she stood by him through it all. It proved that her feelings were the real deal.

The story had a wonderful blend of humour and romance. The story was drama free, which is usually the case with Melissa’s stories. However, she had me tearing up near to the end. I did not expect that scene, and it almost wrecked me.

Call Her Mine focused heavily on family and friendships, which is typical of Melissa’s work. Reading her books make me wish I had that family connection.

Narration
This was my first time listening to Isabelle Ruther. I thought she did an ok job. I could not get on board with her male voices, but she did an excellent job with those of the females. Her pacing and tone were good, and I loved how she brought out the emotions of the female characters.

Conclusion/Recommendation
Another great series starter from Ms. Foster and I would recommend to fans of contemporary romance.
