Publisher's Summary

Abby Davis isn't wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she's busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn't looking for fun - he's a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions and fallen brothers. Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt has been sidelined by a combat injury, and he is haunted by the loss of his best friend and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL - focused and dedicated. This leaves no time for what he's always wanted: a family. Matt opens her heart while Abby soothes his soul. And though they plan to say good-bye when the week is over, something magical happens on that beach, something neither can forget. Something utterly, completely worth falling for.

Contains mature themes.

What the Critics Say

"This debut mixes passion and compassion in a contemporary story that has emotional depth. Readers will find the story heartwarming but with enough heat to remind them of what falling in love feels like." (Library Journal)

    "A fabulous ride for the emotions!"

    I loved this book. I had never read/listened to a Claudia Connor book before. I belive I picked this one up as an Audible Daily Deal. I'm SO glad I did! The story takes you all over the emotional map, but ends with my favorite happy ever after. Johanna Parker is also new to my, but I thoroughly enjoyed her narration. Will be looking for more from these two talented ladies!

    Story
    "Heartwarming and Emotional"

    I got this book during a recent sale so I wasn't expecting a whole lot from it. I was proven wrong! I would have definitely used a credit for this one.

    I don't need to tell you the plot of this story (that's what the publisher's summary is for) but I will say that this book has all the elements of a great romance. Engaging story, check! Strong, yet vulnerable characters, check! Emotional, check! Heartwarming, check! Hunky, Sensitive, Smart, Navy Seal (lol), check! It's the kind of story that you don't want to end. 💖

    The narration was outstanding. She totally nailed all the voices...especially the children. She really brought this book to life.

    Note: This book does have some strong language and sex scenes.

    I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good heartwarming romance.

    Story
    "This is how a woman should be loved"

    I appreciated that this book had a depth of story and not just scene after scene of mindless sex. While still hot, the author managed to make this story meaningful and touching in a way that is missing from most of the "Fifty Shades of Trendy" books.

    Story
    "WORTH THE FALL WAS SO WORTH THE CREDIT"

    This is a romance that shouldn't have worked.... a handsome, bodylicious 34 yr old Navy SEAL and a pregnant widowed mother of four..... but together they made it work. Through their initial holiday attraction and flirtation, their separations, her insecurities, his missions and the broken promises yet somehow these two people connected, overcame, found love and became a beautiful family of six.... then seven.

    Worth a credit? A good start to this new series with loveable characters (especially the children), a great story with a little angst and a heartwarming HEA easily made this an enjoyable, romantic and creditworthy listen.

    Story
    "Predictable and boring"

    The only reason I'm glad I finished this book is to know I will never read another book by this author. The plot was predictable; the conflict was overly developed. The Christian storyline was ostentatious, and had I known it had a Christian bent, I wouldn't have wasted a credit. The sex was not satisfying. Some reviewers said to expect tears and perhaps they cried. I need more of a storyline and a character I can really care about to cry.

    "don't waste your time"

    the most unrealistic love story of all times. Fast forwarded to the end & of course very predictable.

    Story
    "Not worth the time"

    This book was too long and too easy to loose interest in.

    I like the characters, especially the kids and brothers, but the two main characters were so hung up on the issues around which the story turned (each one having a hang up that kept them from moving forward in life) -- the story really started to drag. I was so tired of Abby's fear of being left and Matt's promise to T. OMG! Enough already!

    Anyway, I begrudge the loss of the time I spent finishing this book more than the loss of the credit I spent buying it. Don't waste your time.
