Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne's sizzling novel of ex-lovers locked again in a game of hearts.

There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he'd fathered a child - with Roxie's sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie's not giving in or giving up without a fight.

Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister's death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian - easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily's sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible...even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.

Just no

Roxy is one of the most annoying characters ever.

The narrator pronounced Kian every way under the sun. Is it Kian that rhymes with Ian or Kian that sounds like Kion?? Or is it a Pepper??

This book annoyed me a lot.

bad narrator

I wish the narrator changed her voice when she's reading. The same voice man or woman.She needs to learn from Andi Arndt.

Honestly?

This Roxy character is unbelievable. After Pamela (Roxy's sister) dies the best part of the book ends, oh and Pamela' s letter was good. I have read other books by M. Ann and enjoyed them but this one is a no read, Sorry.

I love Melody Anne book she's one of my favorite authors the story line was amazing as always but Roxie was so annoying I came very close to not finishing this book because of this character the ridiculous choices she made ....I can't go into detail because I would be giving spoilers I hate spoilers...my goodness I felt like pulling my hair out at times

Disappointing

Roxie is completely unreasonable. Her reasons for leaving such a wonderful man in the first place are ridiculous and made no freaking sense. Then she returns to act like a brat trying to act like she had some claim over a child that in her own words barely spent any time with her. Skyping with her niece in 3 years and somehow she felt like she has more rights to a child then her biological father.. f that... Kian was more than patient about that situation and Roxie acted like a total bitch.. she was emotional and stupid. Maybe it was the narrator that did a poor job of portraying the character. I had to speed it up to 1.25x just to get through it. The core story had some good parts but missed the mark on several areas. I mean the final ending made no sense. She flew into a frenzy at the hospital for no reason whatsoever. Made no sense. I am conflicted about listening to the next books in the series. Same narrator for all books makes me worried. I would definitely find a better book or series.

so hard to finish

the narrator ruined this book. Kristin Watson heintz would drag out the oddest words! unfortunately she seems to have narrated the next book in the series too. I was going to try and listen to it but no. Can't listen to her again.

Delightful!

I normally enjoy Melody Anne's books, but this one didn't quite measure up. Kian Forbes and Roxie Gilbert were in love for years, but something happened that sent Roxie running, leaving Kian with no idea why she left him. He was crushed and fell into a life of partying, bars, women and a closed down heart. He is a trauma surgeon and is so patient, kind and talented with each of his patients. Stabbing victims have been brought into the ER and he's trying to save the life of a woman with stab wounds, doused in blood. There's something familiar about her and, when she speaks, he knows immediately. The 4-year-old stabbing victim is Pam's daughter, Lily, and Kian is the father. This is Pam, Roxie's sister, and things just got real. Roxie gets the call that no sister or aunt wants to receive and it looks like she's going to have to face Kian sooner than she thought she would. When they face each other after four years of no communication, there's a lot of pain and fear because there has never been any type of closure. Kian is a father and he takes it so seriously and he falls in love with Lily right away. Roxie doesn't handle it well; in fact, she lashes out selfishly, worried more about her own feelings, when she should have been concerned only with Lily's health and wellbeing. It's a wonderful premise, the characters are written in layers upon layers, but the angst between Roxie and Kian didn't have to be ratcheted up that much. Roxie couldn't even give a reason as to why Kian had hurt her so much that she had to leave. She blamed herself, but took it out on him. The rest of the story was a delight and there are more of the Forbes children to find their match.
Kristin Watson Heintz did a wonderful job with the narration. Her dynamic voice and natural intonation helped to bring these characters to life!

This needs a different narrator.

The narrator didn't try to make a difference in male and female characters voices. It through me off. This series was not as pleasurable.

Crazy love

This is the first time i did not like the woman in the story nor did I have any sympathy for her. I found Rosie to be selfish ,insane and unstable and sometimes just plain ridiculous. Hope the other stories are better. The narrator was very good.

Give the guy a break

Yet another book the guy, who has done no wrong, groveling to the women. I find myself feeling angry for the man because they were done wrong. It was hard to listen to. I would have told Roxie to go to hell.

It was ok

while I enjoyed the story, it was a bit drawn out in places and found myself not listening. very predictable, I have quite a few books by Melody Anne and enjoyed other titles more. Narration was good, heard better heard worse. Much prefer a male and female narrator, makes the story so much better.

Was looking forward to a new series

I struggling to believe this book is written by Melody Anne. I managed to listen to the entire book and was very disappointed.
