Publisher's Summary

Jesse Keyes has done some serious growing up. With a steady job and a vibrant four-year-old son, Gabe, she's in a far better place than when she left Seattle five years ago...pregnant and misunderstood by almost everyone in her life.

Now it's time to go home and face her demons. But her sisters, Claire and Nicole, aren't exactly impressed with the new and improved Jesse. And then there's Matt, Gabe's father, who makes it clear that he never wants to see her again despite the lust that still smolders between them.

Jesse doesn't know if she can make up for all the mistakes of her past. But the promise of sweet nights with Matt might just give her the extra incentive she needs to make it worth the trouble....

More sour than sweet...

This series is not sweet at all. Mrs. Mallery apparently wanted to write hateful characters and decided to put them together in a series. The Keys sisters have a very dysfunctional relationship. And every character on these books lack basic communication skills. The grudges and desire for revenge between the main couple Jessie and Matt were horrible. Matt was a real tool and there was not enough growling to redeem him. The story was predictable and the resolution was not believable. This story left me with a happily ever after that did not feel all that happy.

Narration: Therese Plummer is one of the best narrators I've ever listened to. But she is not a miracle worker so she really could not make this story good. The only reason why I actually finish the book was the great narrator. I don't recommend this book (nor the series) at all.

If this was the best book out of the trilogy, the other two must have been dreadful! The storyline of this book was mediocre at best, and the characters were irritating rather than endearing. The dysfunctional family dynamics and the lack of basic communication had me wanting to pull my hair out! And the lead male character was tool that was so blinded by revenge that he wasn't even rational. I found no depth of character in anyone.

If you are looking for stories with heart, humor and substance, I recommend the "Buchanan" series. They display Susan Mallery's work at it's best.

Cute Story

This was a cute story. Nothing to remarkable or entertaining but all and all a good story. It was heartwarming the way the little boy tries to get to know his daddy. I think this was an easy going light book to listen to.

Much better than expected

The first 2 books were just okay for me. So much that I almost didn't buy this one. If you only buy one this is it. I really liked the story in this book (best of the 3 books in the series.) Skip book one and two and just listen to this one.

Sweet Trouble

Love, love, love the narrator! I could listen to her all day. This series is amazing with engaging characters and storylines. The narrator brings each character to life and makes the story come to life.

The story line is too predictable and the main character Jesse is a drama queen.
The narrator's voice is whiny, which makes this one a hard listen.

Too bad that Jesse didn't come back sooner then 5 years. She could of seen her sisters sooner. Good story regarding Matt and Jesse it went back 5 years and then to present sometime I wasn't sure where I was. But it was good.
