Publisher's summary

USA Today best-selling Author Claudia Burgoa delivers a funny, heartfelt, sometimes angsty romantic comedy where love begins anew. 

Fresh out of vet school, I married Pierce Aldridge. Gorgeous, sexy, and smart. He’s a philanthropist with a heart of gold, or so I thought. 

But after a while he became distant, self-centered, and callous. The man I married disappeared before my eyes. I should leave him, but I can’t do it just yet. 

There’s one thing I need, but I can’t have it if I divorce him. Just a few more months.

But my plans fall through when his father dies. The man was just as ruthless as his son. 

Now, I can either spend 18 months with Pierce in his hometown playing the happy couple, or I could avoid the ordeal entirely if I sign the divorce papers. But I would lose the one thing I’ve been wanting my whole life. 

The more time that passes, the more I realize that maybe I’ve been wrong. 

Maybe the man I married is still there. The man I still love. 

But is it too late?

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a romantic comedy saga packed with the perfect mix of angst, tears, and laughs. If you like strong heroines and alpha males, steamy romances and witty love stories, this series is for you!

The plot thickens

I love this series as each book builds on the characters. This book focuses on Pierce and Layla. How they met and fell in love then fell apart. They are forced with the rest of the family to move to Baker’s Creek and live together for a year. Some surprises bring out more truths and Pierce and Layla find each other again.

Teddy Hamilton and Kelsey Navarro were great.

Pierce & Leyla

I love and was rooting for this second chance romance. Pierce and Leyla’s love started and stayed strong throughout the relationship EVEN though things hit rock bottom. Each of their beginnings were heartbreaking - urgh, Theo things they had to endure. Burgoa did a fantastic job setting up their story in the first two books and I am stocked to be listening this. She also excelled in sharing the brothers growth in their personal journey and as learning to be a family and treat others with respect. Something each of their moms seems to not teach them.

Narrators: first time listening to both narrators. Enjoyed listening to Kelsey and felt Teddy kind of exaggerated Pierce’s voice but overall 4.5⭐️s on narrations. Looking forward to listening/reading the next book.

5/5

Pierce & Layla will break your heart !

oh, Claudia didn't play with this one. She brought in the big guns to destroy my emotions!

This second chance small town romance is one of a larger series that I've come to adore and know that it will be in library of repeat listens.

First I have to applaud Kelsey and Teddy for their stellar performance as Layla and Pierce.

My heart hurt for these two and their tough journey to their HEA.

This book pulled at my emotions in all the best ways. There's heartache, angst, love and friendship that makes this book a 5 star for me!

A wonderful story

This is a wonderful story and the narrative is really good. I hope there will be another book or two to tell Miles and Vance's stories. Also to tell Deacons story. I listened to this one all the way through without stopping, I enjoyed it that much. Really hoping for more of this story.

Forever Love.....

Loved it. Audible has brought this story to life for me. Don't have time to read or even have trouble she the words then Audible is definitely the way to go.

Coming home to Bakers Creek is like visiting old friends. This is the 3rd book in the series, and it is phenomenal. I had many emotions while reading this book. I was happy, sad, and even mad at some points and laughing at others. I was mad when Pierce and Leyla were stubborn, I was like can you two not just move past everything. But I know it does not work like that. I love when a book makes me feel so many emotions.
Pierce and Leyla had been on the fast track from the beginning. They did everything on fast track it seems. When we first meet these two in the beginning, I was curious to see how their story got started and how it would end.

We all think we have found our forever at first or our happily ever after but sometimes life decides to throw a curve ball. Can Pierce and Leyla get past all the hurt to move forward? Either together or apart? Check out the 3rd book in this series to find out how it goes. I recommend reading this series in order.

Ok read

I’m probably in the minority because I think this book was ok, not great. The story was long, drawn out and frankly frustrating to listen to. The total 180 Pierce made after the marriage was crazy to me and no explanation in the end justified it. Layla was feisty and I understood her reason for refusing to divorce Pierce, but I wished she would have left especially after everything he did and said. With that said, I skipped multiple chapters and only finished because I was curious about the ending.

Wow, Pierce and Leyla need to work for their HEA!

The Aldridge family sure does have a lot of baggage, and it's making the Baker's Creek Billionaires series a great experience.

Pierce and Leyla fell in love instantly, got married, and then went their separate ways for YEARS. But when Pierce's father's will brings them both to Baker's Creek, Pierce leaps at the second chance to make their marriage real. Pierce and Leyla needed to really work for their happily ever after, and I'm so glad that they did.

Teddy Hamilton and Kelsey Navarro really brought this story to life. You could hear the frustration, the heat, the emotion in their voices and it made it such a great listening experience.

EPIC Audiobook!!!

☆☆☆☆☆ 5 STARS

I’ve recently listened to the audiobook and loved the narration. I loved listening to this book from beginning to end. This couple did not have the greatest of childhoods, yet it shaped them into the people they've become. The way Leyla and Pierce's relationship progresses from their first encounter right up to their present state is incredibly entertaining. I could not get enough of the Aldridge brothers. Defying Our Forever by Claudia Burgoa is an EPIC audiobook that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!
