Publisher's Summary

I hate Harry Stone.

Before I’d even met the selfish former pro hockey player turned CEO, he was at the top of my shit list.

The entire city of Chicago thinks he’s God’s gift to humanity, but I know the truth.

He knocked up my best friend and then ditched her when she needed him most.

She got sick after that, and before she passed away, she chose me to raise her newborn daughter.

I just need Harry to sign away his rights to the little girl who means everything to me.

Unfortunately, it’s not quite that simple.

To stay in his daughter’s life, I end up moving in with the man I detest. Loathe. Despise.

Hating Harry Stone is the easiest thing I’ve ever done.

But slowly discovering a way to not hate him?

Now that, I didn’t see coming.

Not bad

I bought the audiobook and enjoyed listening to Gregory Salinas' really smooth voice. He's actually not really what I would have pictured for Harry but he did a great job overall. Kai Kennicott, also, did well so overall, this was a good listen.

Now for the story. This is a surprise baby (but Winter, the heroine, is not the mother), enemies to lovers, sports romance. The biggest issue is Winter. She was irrationally angry at Harry and irrationally supportive of her best friend, the mother of the baby, who didn't tell Harry she was pregnant and never informed him that she was sick either (she passed away early in the book). The romance was stilted because of this anger and I really didn't believe in their HEA because the anger and the guilt that the heroine wallowed in. Overall, the narration saved the book.

So Disappointed - Keep Scrolling for Another Book

I could not find anything believable or enjoyable about Winter. She professes her deep love and adoration for her deceased friend, baby Avery and sister Aubrey and such rude, aggressive behavior towards Harry. I rolled my eyes so many times during a number of Winter’s childlike fits and outbursts. And her denial about her attraction to Harry was more about her immaturity and adolescent stubbornness than trying to protect her friend’s honor and memory. Pass on this selection.
