Publisher's Summary

Self-made business owner Dale McGuire has always enjoyed two things in life: women and fast cars. Now in her mid-30s, she's restless and can't work out why. Then one day a 10-year-old boy turns up, claiming to be her son, and her simple ordered world turns upside down.

Rebecca Harper bears the emotional scars of her father's crimes, and now she has two rules: never let anyone get too close and never admit weakness. Thanks to an anonymous egg donor, infertility didn't stop her from having her son Jake. Now pregnant for a second time, she's horrified when Jake brings home the woman he believes is his other mother.

When distrust turns to understanding and passion, can Dale and Rebecca, two women bound by fate, make a family neither expected?

    "OMG OMG OMG I LOVE THIS BOOK"

    How can I fully explain how much I love this story? I love every part of it, the ups and downs, the drama, the happiness, the love. And also the characters, I think I'll never forget them, they live in my heart now, Dale, Becca, Jake, Sam, Val, they were all unique and real.

    The narrator did a fantastic job giving them each their own voice, perfectly transmitting every emotion, both good and bad. I felt everything the characters went through, like I was there with them and knew them my whole life.

    I cannot recommend this book enough, I feel like I will never make it justice even if I use all the atoms in the universe to write about it. To anyone reading my meager review, do yourself a favor and buy this book, you won't regret it.

    "this narrator is amazing"

    I loved it and I literally finished it in one day. something I have never done. I'm tempted to buy all the books this person has ever narrated cause she's very good. she made me love the book 100% more. the Scottish accent was so good.

    "Great Narrator for a great story"

    I really loved this narrator. Iโ€™m very picky and she did an excellent job. Made the story more enjoyable than it already was.

    "Wonderfully written ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘"

    A great story with an even greater narrator. Nicola made all characters come to live & be so animated as if I was watching a movie & not just listening.
    I really loved her & respect her efforts & great work.
    As for the book, it is wonderfully written with an extremely beautiful plot.
    This is a total new experience, rather than being just a book.
    Great work ! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    "Engaging and endearing"

    I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. I loved the unique storyline and fell in love with the characters. Sometimes you want to be just talked through a situation, with some comedy relief in between, without all the high drama and suspense. The great care taken by the author in her characterization kept me connected to her story. I liked it, a lot!

    "Bone Deep"

    This was a fantastic listen! I loved the narrators character depiction. The author really did a good job drawing out all of the characters from neonatal to 40-somethings. The relationships were real. The love and the passion were mentally palpable. The bad guys really pissed me off. Well done!
