But when a sexy ex-boyfriend resurfaces, Daisy's life becomes even more complicated.

Crazy!

This was good but weird at the same time. I could never understand why a woman would fall for a guy like she did, only to be left with nothing but drama and a headache. Definitely, a lesson learned for all single women to do their homework before getting too deeply involved with a man.

nice listen

Great story, nice delivery. I really enjoyed the story line, it captured my attention from the start, and held it until the last syllable.

Ok

I really liked this book and would recommend it. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I would have given it 5 stars if the author hadn't used God's name in vain. You don't have to use "GD" to have a great book.

I like how it touched on real life experiences and I'm glad it had a HEA. I knew Giggie would get with Thomas.

Entertaining story

This was an enjoyable story with a lot of twist and turns. The only thing that I thought was odd (*spoiler alert) was when they were in the courtroom and her sons grandparents lawyer did not object anything to the opposing council. It made no sense, one he’s a lawyer, two I’m assuming, a top lawyer since the grandparents had money. Even if you can’t win the argument you still object to anything that can hurt your client and can possibly be thrown out.

This book was better than I remember!

I read this book back when I was in high school, I think it was 2005 or 2006, but I loved it then and its even better now. I did not want to stop listening. At one point I felt like a character in the book. It felt as if someone was telling me this story as if it was true.

Interesting read

I enjoyed this book. I thought the twist between the brothers was interesting. Daisy got on my nerves with Adonnis but I can see why she had to see thing for herself after dealing with Jasper.

doesn't make sense. leaves 2ndary plots incomplete

ok the author clearly didnt research her content matter. it's a fiction story but it was annoying bc it was so legally wrong. the main character could have sued based on common law marriage in NYC then they would have had to determine who was the legal wife. and if she used her sisters identity to sign her baby's birth certificate and all the paperwork daughter then how can the baby daddy sue her and not her sister for custody. and how did the bd find out she had a child aaannnddd. she could have just filed ss for the brother for the other child. I know this doesn't make sense unless you read it. but the author needed to do a better job for her plot to work. it's just so illogical. the book is meant to be realistic fiction but the. circumstances are just wrong. it really bothered me. the legal circumstances are common knowledge too. you dont have to know law in depth to know the basic laws pertinent to making the story work. And some of the 2ndary plots are left incomplete. Just sloppy story telling.
