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!

My Heart!

I don't know what it is but I was sucked into this story from the beginning. For me it's different because Layla and Pierce are already married, even if they ready for divorce. Their second chance comes while they're still together an my heart broke for them. It was heartfelt. I love seeing them from the start and how they came to be at this place in their lives. The story does have humor and lightens up the story and in the end I had a big smile on my face. The narrators do such an amazing job with the characters and I could see and hear them as Layla and Pierce. I felt them more than the previous book. I will be listening to this again.

A great addition to the series

Defying Our Forever is an entertaining book to listen to and I was invested in this story from the first to the last chapter. Narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Kelsey Navarro they did a good job bringing life to the characters. They were easy to listen to and certainly brought the emotion and angst that this story held to the forefront.
Pierce and Leyla are struggling and need to decide if they should end their marriage. Forced to return home it gives them the opportunity to re access their relationship and what they want for the future. Can they come to terms with the past and move on and in doing so find find what they once had?
This was an emotional roller coaster of a read, there is so much angst, self doubt and secrets and Teddy and Kelsey certainly conveyed that with their narration. What happens when secrets are revealed? The journey that Pierce and Leyla embark on, the emotions and feelings that they go through was heart warming and the love they re discovered made this an emotional and romantic story.

Love this Second Chance Romance!

I have fallen so hard for these sexy Aldridge brothers and The Baker's Creek Billionaire Brothers series! The more I learn about these broken billionaires, the deeper I care for them and cheer for their HEA! This is about Pierce Aldridge, and Leyla Gibbs and their magical fairytale second chance romance. But as we know, fairytales are not easy journeys at times. Pierce is a broken, moody lawyer until he meets the beautiful, kind, caring veterinarian. He loves that she tries to save all the animals and he gets swept up in her light, and love. They have a whirlwind, passionate romance and soon get married. But his mother and cousin's are darkness, and try to pull him back and away from the light. They almost succeed, until Pierce is forced to move away to live with his brothers for eighteen months. He forgot that the Aldridge men are cursed, and can never have love and a family. He has almost destroyed his relationship with Leyla, and tries to protect her by convincing her to not go with him. But Leyla has demons of her own, making it hard for her to let someone in. Even though Pierce has broken her heart, he is a part of her and she wants to make sure he is protected. What she finds in Baker's Creek is something neither of them ever dreamed was possible. I was so captivated by Pierce and Leyla's second chance romance! How they went from friends, to lovers, to enemies and then started all over again, only doing it right the second time around. Leyla was so sassy, a bit devious, but so kind and loving. She was so perfect for Pierce helping him see that he deserved to be loved. Pierce was moody, and callous at times but underneath that hard exterior is a kind and thoughtful man who just wants to be loved unconditionally. I loved their journey from their difficult pasts, to learning to forgive, trust, and build a forever love together. Burgoa is weaving a beautiful tale about these brothers and their fascinating stories that bring them together to connect, heal and find friendship and family. It made me laugh out loud at times, cry, and swoon. I love all the brothers who are unique in their own way. It is so much fun getting to know them better, watching how they forge brotherly bonds, and their sibling banter is hilarious! There are more secrets that are coming their way and I can't wait to find out more about these sexy Aldridge men and the incredible women who challenge and love them!
Narrators Teddy Hamilton, and Kelsey Navarro were amazing as they brought these characters and story to life. Their easy delivery and inflections make me feel like I am right there with them, getting totally lost in the realism of their storytelling. They really expressed the push/pull between both Pierce and Leyla, and allowed us to experience their strengths and vulnerabilities, their deep love for each other, and their explosive passion! I loved this fun, heartfelt, and sizzling story so much and Hamilton and Navarro made even better!

Defying Our Forever

Claudia Burgoa has another great entry into the Baker's Creek Billionaire Brothers series.

From beginning to end I loved reading Pierce and Leyla's story. I already knew a little about them from the first two books in the series, but their story was full of more love, hurt, and heart than I had even expected.

Their journey is hard and I liked getting both of their POV to understand their motivations and actions better. I especially liked how much growth Pierce has over the course of the story.

Great narration as with all of Claudia's audiobooks! I especially liked Teddy Hamilton as he's one of my favorites!

Second Chances

I read the ebook when it was released.
Pierce Aldridge was a jerk to Layla. My heart
went out to her when her world was crumbling.
Good thing she is a survivor The narrators did an excellent job of putting voices for the characters.
