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.

Plastic...

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 Stupidity

While I usually enjoy Susan Mallery's novels, I found Jesse too weak and Matt too cold-hearted. Matt kept calling Jesse a slut because she slept around as a teen - evidently he was allowed to have sex with dozens of nameless women but Jesse was supposed to be pure as the driven snow.

At age 22, Jesse told Matt she was pregnant and he was the father. When Matt refused to believe her, calling her ugly names, Jesse left town and never contacted him again. When Jesse came back 5 years later, Matt was a total asshole again, somehow believing he was the injured party.

Sadly, Jesse allowed Matt as well as her sister Nicole, to treat her like shit over and over. In spite of being an intelligent woman, Jesse acted like a stupid bimbo, not believing she was worthy of love and respect. It was incredibly frustrating, rather than sweet and romantic, when Jesse endured verbal abuse like a pathetic coward.

At last

In the first 2 books - there was no sympathy for Jessie and it was understandable but the rift between the sisters were irritating at times but in the end - my issue wasn’t with Matt (although he was rather vindictive) my issue was how the sisters wanted Jessie to forgive Matt after just 2 months and yet Nickie held a grudge for 5 years. I think Jessie should have waiting a min of 6 months.

Not as good as the other two

I enjoyed the first two books. They were easy to listen to and worth it as a no-credit listen under the audible escape package. This one followed the same format but the “romance” was not good. The guy was a total jerk past & present. He was borderline verbally abusive and mean in a calculated way. Some things can’t be undone with an apology and gifts.
