The Harts are a family of San Francisco firefighters. Their family motto is: Heart comes first.

Heartbreaker Connor Hart, one of the youngest fire chiefs in the country, is planning on marrying Dr. Elaine Woo, a woman who pretended to cheat on him with his best friend many years ago. She bought him a Dalmatian puppy, he gave her a ring—and the women of San Francisco are about to lose their most eligible bachelor.

Artist and poet Nadine Woo is down on her luck. The cast-off half-sister of Dr. Elaine Woo, she doesn’t measure up, according to her strict and distant father. When Nadine and her mother are about to be evicted from their apartment, she gets an interesting offer from her sister. Seems she’s in need of a little help concerning her relationship with Fire Chief Connor Hart.

Connor is the fireman who rescued her and her little gray kitten, and she’s never forgotten how safe she felt in his arms.When Nadine takes her sister’s place at a spring fling weekend with Connor, love ignites, and there’s no going back.Can a spunky little kitty show Connor and Nadine that doing the wrong thing is sometimes right, especially when it comes to love?

The Hart Family has my heart

I have been waiting to listen to Connor's story and what a treat this one is! In the previous books, Connor has always been a little aloof, always keeping his heart guarded and only opening for the return of Elaine. At the end of book 2, these two are back together, but is it really true love? Now with Elaine's father looking to marry her best friend, a plan is concocted with her siblings, and Nadine, her half sister comes into play. The future is never what you expect and this has never been so true as in this book. Rachelle Ayala has thrown a wrench into the story with a little mystery thickening the plot and making us wonder which family members are trustworthy! I was thoroughly engaged in the story, love the addition of the pets(Grayheart was so lovable as well as the return of Cinder) and enjoyed meeting up with Connor's friends and relatives again. Add in some firefighting and crazy family dynamics and we have another wonderful installment of this series.

Jennifer Groberg continues the narration of this series, and she has become the Hart family voice for me. I loved it!

Sibling rivalry at its best...or worst...

Connor Hart is the oldest of the Hart siblings, and one of the youngest fire chiefs in the country. He's also finally engaged to his hs sweetheart, Dr. Elaine Woo, and all is right in his world. That is, until one kitty in need of rescuing, leads Connor to its owner, Nadine, and he is smitten. Connor soon learns that Nadine is the half sister of Elaine and things get complicated really fast!!! Will Connor and Nadine be able to ignore the sparks between them and pretend that all is well? I must say that when we were introduced to Elaine in one of the earlier books, I felt some sympathy towards her...in this book? Not so much! Elaine is driven, snobbish and bossy as he!!...Overall, the story was great and I loved the ending...not telling which sister was Connor's final choice...you will have to read to find out...

There's a lot going on in this book!

This is another installment of the books about the Hart family. This one features Connor Hart and half sisters. Connor is engaged to one and then falls for the other. It's a mess. Talk about screwed up family dynamics! The family of those two women is just a big old mess. This book is just packed with all sorts of things going on. There is the screwed up legitimate family, the illegitimate family, disaster after disaster, romance, a break up, pets escaping, poetry and painting and people trying to hurt others. It's busy in this book!
I listened to the audio book narrated by Jennifer Groberg. She did a good job with it.

Enjoyable

This was a sweet, enjoyable romance. Connor Hart is finally close to marrying his long time girlfriend, Dr. Elaine Woo, after many hurdles he’s had to jump along the way. However those hurdles are about to get higher when he rescues her half sister Nadine Woo. Throw in a gray kitten and a Dalmatian puppy and the fun begins. There are also some twists you don’t expect thrown into the mix. Jennifer Groberg does a better job of the narration than the first two books. This book was given to me for free and I provided this voluntary review.

Fun and enjoyable story...

Connor finally gets engaged to Elaine, the woman he has been pining away for since they broke up years ago. When Nadine and her kitten are rescued by Connor, fate has a way of changing things. Nadine gets caught up in an idea to fix things with her parents and stay in the apartment she is in. Her half-sister, Elaine, takes the idea to a new level, and Nadine finds herself embroiled in a scheme that wasn't supposed to go the way it did. This book gets you thinking about what really matters in life. It portrays a love that feels real and binding, a never-ending commitment, an unbreakable bond. I loved this story, and I really enjoyed listening to this narrator. I highly recommend this book!

Left me with a smile in my heart.

There are no hidden tactics, no overly sexy scenarios or dark agendas with Rachelle Ayala's Connor and Nadine. What you get is straight forward at times flighty and not always pretty storytelling.  Adding to the cuteness factor was Nadine's cat who had such a sassy attitude I hoped it would rub off on Nadine. Spring Fling Kitty is an motivational story that left me with a smile in my heart.

Eagerly awaiting the next in series!

Spring Fling Kitty: The Hart Family: Have a Hart, Book 3 by Rachelle Ayala, narrated by Jennifer Groberg is a sweet romance that leaves you believing in the power of love. I've followed this series, as well as the others written by Rachelle Ayala. I tend to lean more toward the sweet romance listens because they are inspirational and they make me happy. Let's face it, our world today is not always filled with happy events, and too many times I find myself sad or heart-broken over my own or someone else's loss or hardship. Rachelle Ayala's writing has a way of filling the void and helping me find balance between the good and bad, the happy and sad, & the ups and downs in which life presents us.

This does not mean, however, that all is perfect in the world of the Hart family, friends, and acquaintances! This is not a fairy-tale filled with princesses and castles. These are real people in real-life situations. The same way life throws us for a loop, it does the same with these loveable characters...well, most of them are loveable. There is quite a bit of action, wonder, and emotion throughout this audiobook! You will not be able to stop listening, and if you're anything like me, you'll more than likely be late to a planned event because you will be dying to know what happens next! At least you'll arrive with a smile...right?!

The narration by Jennifer Groberg is right on. She does a wonderful job bringing these characters to life. Her voice, inflection, pace, and volume are perfect. I think all listeners will enjoy her performance and agree that she is the perfect match for this series/book.

I rate Spring Fling Kitty: The Hart Family: Have a Hart, Book 3 by Rachelle Ayala, narrated by Jennifer Groberg 5/5 stars across the board. I recommend it to those who like romances, without the steamy details, and to those who love animals, mainly kitties! :-) I'm looking forward to the next in series! I'll be first in line when it releases on audio!

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)

Kitty rescue brings love

Connor Hart is engaged to Elaine. He rescues Nadine's kitty from a tree and finds her intriguing. There's an attraction between them but neither one knows their connection -- Nadine is Elaine's half sister! Elaine isn't a good person - always scheming and drags Nadine into one of her plans. This is a really good story that Rachelle Ayala brings with her usual writing ability. I enjoyed all the references to painting and poetry. Jennifer Groberg does an excellent job narrating. I requested a copy of the book and am giving my honest review.

Sweet and clean with a bit of Paine, poetry & fire

What a surprise this Have a Hart story turned out to be! I suppose Fire Chief Connor Hart deserved so much more than a sweet romance.

This story is sugary sweet but also funny and suspenseful. It has characters that are quirky, (like Nadine), endearing (like Connor), frustrating (for instance Elaine and her father) but also manipulative and crazy (I am not giving this away). We get to revisit with characters from the previous book, namely the Hart family and their significant others, and see how their relationships are progressing. And what is a fireman's story without a little fire!!

Rachelle Ayala's romances are mostly feel-good stories that reflect her diverse knowledge of Asian culture and cuisine as well as her Christian faith (though the religious element is really more a mention than the focus. She is in no way preachy or moralistic in her approach.). This story is no exception. This series also reflects her love for animals. In fact, little kitty GrayHeart/Gray Hart may actually be the star of the show!

I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the sudden twists in the plot, the flawed characters, their relationships and the moments when you question their decisions, and all that delicious food.
