Publisher's Summary

After Claire McEvoy’s first attempt at love was shattered by devastating violence, she built walls, barriers, and obstacles to protect herself from everyone, including her family. She learned to cope by devoting her entire life to taking care of everyone else’s needs and happiness.  

Jackson Alexander knows all of the past ugliness that occurred, and although he has loved Claire since she was 15 years old, he always settled for the friendship that she offered. Now, 23 years later, he is back and getting the chance he always desired.

Claire still finds it impossible to let any man into her life, but he won’t be deterred. This time, he is not letting her push him away. Even if it means getting a flag on the play for encroachment, Claire will ultimately be his.

GREAT READ!

I absolutely loved it! The narration was superb and gave the story that extra flair. It will keep you entertained! The author did an excellent job with the character builds and plot. I look forward to reading more of her books. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A good continuance.

Great story! I loved the dynamic between Claire and Jackson. I know it is a Trilogy but felt unfinished. The performance was wonderful I felt connected to the characters through the speakers voice. All in all a good job!

Claire & Jack

Book 2 Encroachment was another great story by author Monica De Simone. Claire suffered a traumatic event when she was in her teens. That has made her a strong and closed off to the outside world with the exception of her sister and daughter. Jackson had feelings for Claire when they were young and always felt protective of her. Both of them have been brought back together. The Narrator also did a great job with the characters.

Better Than the First One

This book was an improvement over the first book but not by much. I found that this author tends to repeat things over and over and use the same words over and over. It gets to the point that it's irritating.
I really liked Jackson in this book but I didn't really connect with Claire. I didn't really feel a connection between the two main characters either just like in the first book. I just feel like Jackson came into Claire's life and starts telling her what to do like he has a right to. Maybe he does but we don't get to see that part. We're only told about it which makes it seem not so. I just really think the books in this series could have been written better.

The narration was good but I think it could use some editing. There are a few repeat sentences and some places where it seems like the narrator tried the word or sentence over.

I was given a copy of this book by the narrator.

well done

the second book in the series no repeat. often authors fall into like copy paste with different names this doesn't. good story even if I wanted to kill her father who is dead.
lot of feelings and the past touches you. very strong characters.
The narrator is good and gives the characters and the story life.

Second Chance Romance

Encroachment by Monica DeSimone is a second chance romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Holly Holt.

This is the second book in the Coach’s Shadow Trilogy. I can’t wait for the third and final book to be released. Each book in the series is centered on a different couple but I would still recommend reading them in order.

I cannot wait to discover more books by Monica in the future.

Holly did a great job on the narration. There were a few spots throughout the story that she repeated a sentence or phrase but not enough to distract from the story.
