Publisher's Summary

The first book in the McCabe Brothers, a spin-off of the best-selling Friessen Series, a family saga loved by fans worldwide from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Lorhainne Eckhart.

Fifteen years ago, Vic McCabe was headed down a one-way road to destruction with the love of his life. But then the unthinkable happened, a mistake that changed their lives forever.

Successful billionaire contractor Vic McCabe is a man every woman wants, but he gives his heart to no one. However, one day a reporter shows up, asking questions about a past he's buried, a mistake he made 15 years ago that could destroy his future and that of the woman he's tried to forget.

After evidence surfaces, dredging up details of the night that changed his life forever, Vic is forced to seek out the only woman he's ever loved - the woman who has sworn to hate him forever.

I loved this story

I loved this story. The injustice of everyday life brought to just common people like you. And how institutions we trust in, can jump into conclusions and overreact changing a nobody's life forever without anyone knowing or caring about. All in the name of the greater welfare cause. It's thought-provoking. The only thing is... why does it end up so abruptly? The last 4 chapters which concludes the story might have needed at least twice the time to develop. I just wasn't ready to leave Vic and Fiona yet.

Amazing story

Lorhainne does it again. Wonderful story with strong characters. I love Vic and his commitment to help those he loves. In the time after 9-11 many untold prejudices and harm came to innocent people and this story handles is type of situation in a thoughtful and meaningful way.

A good beginning to the series

The beginning of this series starts with a story that grabs your attention from the start.
Vic McCabe , now a successful owner of a contracting company is approached by a reporter that is digging into his past. A past from a youth that was less than stellar but also not what it seemed. His first thoughts is that he needs to find and protect the girlfriend who 15 years ago had suffered the most and who disappeared .
Little does he know that she has created a new identity and has kept many secrets.
It’s a story about redemption, forgiveness and new beginnings.
The plot in engaging , and the characters complex . A series that promises to be a winner.
Kudos to the narrator, Jaclynn Michelle Elfring who does an extraordinary job with voices.

Vic is an alpha male all the way–and swoon worthy

Ever since Lorhainne Eckhart introduced us to Vic McCabe in Leave the Light On, a book in her popular Friessens series, I've wanted to read his story. You definitely don't need to read Leave the Light On before reading this one as Vic was a minor (but memorable) character in that book. He is a very wealthy man and owns a construction company with locations in multiple states.

In Don't Stop Me we learn that Vic's past wasn't so stellar. That past comes knocking on his door in more ways than one. A reporter has dug up information on something that happened in Vic's past that also affects the only women he ever loved. They haven't seen each other in 15 years and now Vic must find her so that he can protect her from what the reporter wants to print.

Wow! I loved the little bit of Vic that we got to see in Leave the Light On and he's even more alpha and yummy in his own story. Don't Stop Me has a bit of mystery and intrigue as well as lots of heat between Vic and Fiona. We also get to meet one of Vic's brothers, Chase, and I'm looking forward to reading his story soon.

About the narration…This is the first audiobook I've listened to by Jaclynn Michelle Elfring. She did a great job with different voices for the characters in the story and she has a pleasing voice. The main reason I only gave her performance 3 stars is the phrasing was off in way more than a few places. It didn't exactly take me out of the story but it was definitely noticeable. She only has two book on Audible so I'm hoping that she's new to audiobook narration and that she will improve with more experience.

A review copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Needed more

Wish there had been more about the characters during their time apart. I think the characters were disjointed and abrupt at times. I prefer longer books to be more invested in the story and characters.

I am not sure about this author yet....

When I first started this book, I was very confused about where it was going. I don't feel like the characters were well developed and you could not see their growth through the story--they were in one place when the story started and had totally reversed course by the end of the book. I know that this is a series but I could not determine if some of the storylines would be addressed in the next book.

The things that I did not like about the book:
1. I do not like feeling as though authors are "shoving" their political ideology down my throat. It makes it hard to get into the book if you don't believe as they do--especially when it is the entire premise of the book.
2. I could not buy into the characters. The h went from hating the H for what happened in the past and blaming him to just saying "okay" when he told her what really happened. If she knew and then changed, I would have been more believable.
3. The characters that "started" the whole story just appeared and disappeared--especially given her "righteous crusade" to prevent this from happening to anyone else.

Things that I did like about the book:
1. It did not have a lot of filler dialogue--there were things that could have been added to the story but nothing was in the story that did not contribute.
2. With #1, I was able to finish the book in one setting and the fact that there are other books in the series let me know that I can perhaps get more information.
3. This book did make me want to read the other books--maybe simply for curiosity.

Even though I gave this book 2 stars, I am willing to read additional books from this author.

Hooked from the start

What a brilliant storyline that am sure will resonant with so many people out there.

Absolutely amazing range of voices and accents by the narrator.

A heartwrenching storyline with loadsbof humour in it. Most memorable phase "you will probably say Satan was a misunderstood child" that had me in giggles.

Can't wait to listen to the rest of the Mcabe brothers.
