Publisher's Summary

Samara Royal feels like life is passing her by. A bookworm who prefers to spend her free-time curled up with a good novel, she doesn't have a lot of opportunities to meet men. Watching her boss, Dr. Lachele, match up happy couple after happy couple only makes matters worse, so she goes to Lachele and puts her love life into the good doctor's hands.

Henry Crider has a five year plan, but inheriting his brother's four-year-old twin daughters throws the plan all out of whack. He needs a nanny, housekeeper, and cook all in one, so he approaches Matchrimony about finding him a bride. He can't fall in love for at least five years, so he needs to harden his heart. Surely his bride will be happy to be exempt from bedroom duties. When he sees Samara walking down the aisle toward him, he knows that she is what his heart needs. Will he be able to keep his vow of celibacy? Or will they fall for each other despite his plans?

A charming addition to the series!

Samara is tired of watching all of the happy couples that her boss is matchmaking and finally plucks up the courage to ask for a groom for herself. What she didn't expect is to marry Henry, a man with custody of his 4 year old nieces and a 5 year plan. Unfortunately, he's only looking for a nanny, cook and mother-figure for the girls. All hell breaks loose when Samara discovers that her marriage won't be the traditional one she was hoping for. This was a charming journey of self-discovery, forgiveness and love in the unlikeliness of places.

Great Heartwarming Story

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. This was a very heartwarming, satisfying, feel good book. There were highs and lows, and funny and tearful parts. You get it all without erotic sexual content. An excellent read/listen. The narrator did a great job with the characters and their personalities. From my viewpoint, she nailed the accents. I will have to look into more of Kirsten Osbourne's books.

The wait is half the fun....

Henry is caring for his two nieces and wants a wife to help him. He turns to Dr. Lachele to match him up. In comes Samara, and she steps into the role of mother and wife easily. Henry wants to get to know Samara before they become a true couple. Samara starts to doubt Henry's intention of being husband and wife, and just wanted her there to care for the house and kids so he could be free. I liked this unique aspect of the couple. It touched on issues real life couples face every day. This was a heart warming story as Samara grew to love the girls as her own and Henry grew to love Samara. I hope to hear more from this coupl ein the future.

Another amazing performance from Tiffany Williams as she narrated this story. I enjoyed hearing her narrate all the characters, even the little girls. Ms. Williams is a very talented narrator who amazes me each time I listen to her narration. I cannot get enough of this series and her narration. On to the next installment!

Stubborn Man and an Even More Sweetly Stubborn Lad

If you've read or listened to previous books in the series, you've met Sammy Sunflower. Samaria is my favorite heroine of the series. Don't miss this book! Her husband is this very handsome and focused man who believes they can wait 5 years before having sex. In addition, there are 2 adorable nieces who have been orphaned so Samaria is an instant mother.
The family atmosphere and small town setting created by Kirsten Osborne really delighted me. Plus, Tiffany Williams is a gifted narrator who brought the story to life. She made it easy to image each character.

Good Listen

Samara is being matched by her boss and she is hoping for a family man to love her. Henry is being matched so that he can find a live in nanny for his nieces. Good narration. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
