Emotionally gripping romance

Maryanne and Vera had a pact of celibacy and the first to break I had to foot a fancy spa day. Maryanne has had no problem until the sexy Lucas comes into their clinic. They develop a friendship that leads to more. She doesn’t know that Lucas knows about her pact with Vera. Then a night she is upset with Lucas and goes out with a rich guy Vera hooked her up with turns into a nightmare. Lucas finds her dumped in an alley naked and nearly choked on her own vomit from too much alcohol and they find out she was drugged. He wants her to press charges as does her dad, then bad gets to worse when she finds herself pregnant. She doesn’t want the baby and Lucas doesn’t believe in abortion and Maryanne believes in women’s right to choose. If Lucas is upset now a secret, she holds could end any chance of a life with Lucas. I loved this story. Her characters are well written and I fell for Lucas right away. The story is poignant and deals with the social issues of both rape and the right to choose (abortion) so if either of these is triggers for you beware. Charlie Ongel is one of my favorite female narrators. She has good pacing, and enjoyable voice, and brings life to both characters and stories.

Heartfelt and Unforgettable

This is a beautiful story that is both moving and endearing in its subject matter and tender handling of the characters involved. This is a journey that is sure to touch the life of every listener and reader and leave a lasting impression. The audio book added to its power and unique approach to this sensitive subject matter. What you experience is a wonderful adventure of two hurting and distrusting hearts that have to learn to look beyond themselves in love and forgiveness. What they give you is an incredible love and hope that you will carry with you for a very long time. Charley Ongel gives us a fabulous performance that is unforgettable and truly memorable. She never fails to delight and entertain me no matter the subject matter. I enjoyed listening to her pour her heart and soul into this story! it is honestly the best way to savor a story that is so much bigger then any of us alone.
