Publisher's Summary

Successful Texas lawyer, Reade Walker, curses that damn song every time it plays, all too aware of the irony of its lyrics. After all, he has been secretly and painfully enamored with Jesse's girl, Gwen, for nearly a decade. It was love at first sight for him, but sadly she's not his girl. She belongs to the one man who betrayed him and knows Reade's hidden family secret. Yet, Reade can't seem to love anyone except the one woman he can't have. Or can he make her mine? 

When Gwen Clark's senator husband runs off with his intern and all their money, the ensuing scandal turns her life upside down. Deserted, penniless, and desperate to provide for her six-year-old daughter, Gwen has no one to turn to but Reade Walker. The one man her heart desperately wants, but her pride dreads having to ask for help. Despite welcoming them into his home, it seems like Reade can barely stand being in the same room with her anymore, let alone under the same roof - in the same bedroom. But Gwen is determined to get her life back on track. It is past time to rediscover her own dreams...if only she can keep her aching heart from breaking all over again.

Jesse is a piece of you know what

Jesse the title character in this book and is absolutely despicable. Reed and Gwen are two characters you wanted to get their HEA. Once they talkers everything out all was good for this couple. Great narration that kept me engaged is always good when listening to an audiobook .

Even better than the song!

I listened to this book in one sitting. The story was fun and quick-paced with plenty of romance to spice it up. I really appreciated the personality the narrator put into the characters’ voices. Jesse’s Girl was a delight!

A good story with snappy dialogue. The characterization was excellent from the get go. Actions do speak louder than words after all. The story, especially with the current political arena, plausible. Verla Bond did a terrific job bringing the story to life.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story, at my request, in exchange for a honest review.

Jesse's Girl

Tara September’s Jesse’s Girl is my first introduction to her writing. I liked this book. Gwen and Reade were fun and entertaining characters. I felt a connection to Gwen from the start. I just saw a little of myself in her. I could understand her struggles and heartache. In the audio version of the book, Verla Bond, does a fantastic performance. She was a perfect fit for this story.
Jesse’s Girl is getting four stars from me. I would love to read more by Miss September in the future.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Sweet story with a happy ending

This is my first Tara September and Verla Bond listen. I am no disappointed. I enjoyed the story and was happy to hear the main character sticking up for herself. Great narration made it an easy and too quick listen

Short and Sweet!

This is a nice short listen. The situations are interesting. Just when I thought it was over...a surprise at the end. Gwen and Reade seem so perfect together I can’t believe they missed each other earlier. It’s kind of funny how everything is like a circle. It all comes around.
I did listen to this on audio. Verla Bond did a wonderful job as narrator. This is a first time author for me as well. Even though it’s short it still packs a punch.

GREAT READ!

I really enjoyed it. Although this story was quick it didn't lack entertainment. This story had plenty of humor and romance. The narration was great. It will keep you entertained. The author did a great job with the characters. This was my first book by this author and I look forward to reading more of her books.

Pleasant surprise

I own over 490 audiobooks and most are romance so I’m aways pleasantly surprised when I listen to a storyline that I’ve never listened to before. I felt this book was different, realistic and vivid in a way I could imagine a movie out of it. Also although the story was short it was very well developed and you can feel the connection with the hero and heroine and hope for a happy ending.
Narration: this was my first audiobook by Ms. Bond and I would definitely listen to more books by her. She does distinct voices for each character and adds intensity and passion to the story.
I recommend this book for a quick escape.

Another Chance To Love

The story begins with Gwen answering her front door to journalists asking about her senator husband running off with his intern and embezzling money from a charity! You would imagine she is heartbroken, but she had leaned over 7 years of marriage the truth of her husband. Her first thought is to contact a mutual friend, Reade, but he just left the country for a month for business.
Reade is on his way back to US when he learns of Gwen’s situation and having loved her for the past 7 yrs comes to her and her 6 yr old daughters aide by giving them a place to live protected.
Circumstances, unsaid words and feelings, feeling trapped and obligated Gwen and Reade struggle with their feelings...,
Romantic, tense and rooting for love this story keeps you listening and angry at Jesse, Gwen’s worthless husband.
The narrator did a perfect job with voice, emotion, timing and pace.

Enjoyed the story and the performance

I really enjoyed listening to this story. The writing is fantastic and paints a realistic picture. I laughed at a few clever comedic lines and smiled a lot while reading this. I felt drawn to Gwen’s pain and desperately wanted to see Reade continue to be a swoony hero. The narrator is definitely a pro and I liked both her rendition of male and female voices.
