Publisher's Summary

In the best-selling books The Billionaire Wins the Game, Hidden Treasure, and The Billionaire's Marriage Proposal, among others, we met the Andersons. Matchmaking patriarchs Joseph and George took matters into their own hands to get their sons to marry and settle down. But now that Dr. Spence Whitman sees how happy his Anderson friends are in married life, he's itching to get hitched, too. But how will he find the one?

After his wealthy dad adopted him and his two brothers at a young age, Spence grew up learning that there are more important things in life than money. He wants to find a girl who shares that philosophy, and it wouldn't hurt to have some similar interests, too. Now if he could just stop getting distracted by his gorgeous surgical resident, he could start looking for the perfect wife....

Stupid Sage

This story line was horrible......Sage is mad at Spence because when she was a child he didn’t return her love. She then makes it some big deal like he broke her heart somehow.. She then runs away, acting like he did something wrong. Then when people who love her try and help her she throws a tantrum like a 2 year old. Then Spence gives her everything she wants, his heart, and HEA. Again she acts like a spoiled childish brat, and says it’s to much, to fast.... ugh. Spence should of walked away from her craziness! Sage doesn’t deserve him.

Decent Read - ending will frustrate a bit

Overall Rating: 3.5 Stars

Overall opinion:

1. How does anyone find a person that says 'I will have you in my bed' before a relationship begins, sexy?

2. I like Melody but the women in her novels tend to be whiney doormats while professing how strong they are.

3. Tone down the constant in-your-head dialog please!

Other than the 3 items above, I did enjoy the story, even during the beyond belief stressor before the HEA.

I enjoyed listening to the story. It's characters draw you in and keep you until the last word is complete. The characters are, for the most part likeable if not full of themselves as in Dr. Spence Whitman. Sage has her own issues in this but it comes out differently. She turns it into stubborn pride. It all comes down to getting out of the way of themselves and facing their feelings.

I took a star away because of accuracy. I am not a medical professional but even I knew some of the details were impossibilities. Yes, this is a fictional story but it takes place in the real world. Some research is in order before presenting it in such a way.

Rebecca Estrella narrated. I am coming to not liking either her or the direction she was given in the narration. At times it is stilted. Through the majority of the story when a name is said, it is emphasized by pausing just the tiniest bit. It is driving me up a wall.
