Publisher's Summary

Years past her 30th birthday, English professor Caroline Jones' biological clock isn't just ticking...it's screaming.

With her boyfriend dragging his feet, Caroline's attempt at an ultimatum shatters their troubled relationship and leaves her no closer to her goals. The dream of motherhood seems to be slipping away.

When Victor, her handsome former student, shows up with an offer she can't refuse, Caroline finds herself having to make an unexpected choice.

But is Victor only her baby-daddy, or has the love of her life been with her all along?

Contains graphic sex scenes.

Okay story but poor editing

This story was okay but it felt rushed through the story like it was edited down to hit a certain time mark. Also, the narration needs editing as you can hear the narrator drinking and other noises that were distracting to the story.
The main character, Caroline, was strong in some parts and a push over in others - it just didn't fit for me.

I was given a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Very fun read

I love this book. It was a great surprise. I will admit after a few minutes in and the first heated scene came on I had to grab headphones to listen to it. I was cooking and there was company over so I was rushing to hit pause! But outside of that moment I love every second of this book. It was very unconventional but had a few sweet traditional aspects to it. You will see when you listen to it. It was a wonderful story about someone loving someone from afar and when they finally get the chance they are all in. There are a few set backs as there are with any good love story. Simone Beaudelair knew what she was doing when she got you wrapped up in this. The home scene with Caroline's mom broke my heart to pieces!! This is so normal in todays society and it is so sad. All the daughters are super strong. This was a moving story and very well read by Holly Holt!

Recommended

This is the first first story in this series I have heard/read. I found that didn't matter apart from interest about side characters. Caroline, NOT Carrie, is such a strong minded person it is hard to imagine she stayed with William so long. The affair with Victor happened so fast and with little background. Their love is hard to believe. From there the story and writing get better and better.

I liked the bits of unconventional mixed in with the traditional. The personalities were well defined and the epilogue appreciated.

Holly Holt did a good job narrating, at the beginning I found her pacing a bit off putting as it was so rhythmic but as the story progressed that to seemed more natural and blended with the story. Her voice is well suited for this type of work.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story, at my request, in exchange for a honest review.

cute heartwarming winter romance!

such a cute story set in the winter to keep your heart nice and warm. i loved the taboo romance that keeps you smiling. loved it. my only issue was the whistle in the narrators voice. made it a little hard to listen to for that reason but i was able to get past it for the story!

Not for me!

This book was definitely not for me! The narrator was good.
I just can’t imagine a student walking into a teachers office and having a conversation like this.
I prefer a little more character development.

Wish I didn’t have to give it a star

The story is hopelessly hokey. The first chapter is straight up porn without the benefit of dinner and a movie. It’s pretty bad. The narrator is weirdly breathy and speaks too fast. She does ok emoting for Caroline but makes Victor sound like a horny Eeyore. I couldn’t get past chapter 1. It was awful.
