Publisher's Summary

This time he’s fighting for his family.  

Axel: When I left home to follow my dream of becoming a boxer, I was too young and stupid to know what I was leaving behind.  

These days I fill my world with the blood and sweat of a violent profession and the meaningless sexual conquests that come with it. A futile attempt to erase from my mind the only woman I’ve ever loved.  

Since I can’t let her go, I have no choice but to win her back.   

Olive: I’ve loved Axel my entire life. The boy next door.  

We didn’t talk about the attraction building between us, until one fateful night those sparks finally burst into flames.  

But when he broke my heart, he left me with a souvenir. A walking, talking little reminder of the man I will always love, but can never again trust with my heart.  

Now he’s back, wanting to pick up where we left off. And there’s no way I’m letting him know about our baby.

Some parts brought me to tears

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I really enjoyed this story. I loved that it was the hero who was filled with angst and had to do whatever to get his family. This showed a different side of a strong character. The narration was pretty good and each character was distinctive. I loved the backstory sprinkled in throughout. Overall a good listen. I listened to the story while getting my walk in and then my rest in. This was an all day story. So expect to spend time with the characters. The secondary characters were also important.

A good story with excellent characterization. Axle is a boxer, something I know little about, with more than a little bad boy going on. It causes him some problems especially when it comes to the only relationship that matters to him.

I never understand how someone who proclaims to love someone can shut that person out for long periods of time when there is such obvious caring back. To me it shows weak fearful character and the strength of their love is diminished. There is also something lost in the tale.

The Holly Holt did an excellent job narrating.

good story

I loved how this story gave you the past, present and future. The characters have a historical love, one that people dream of. The narration was ok, but I feel that there could have been more differences for the male voices.

They finally got it right!

Normandie Alleman has succeeded in giving me whiplash while reading this second, third and fourth chance romance! Axel and Olive have been best friends and each other's supporter since they were young. They grew up next door from each other and, as they grew, so did their feelings for one another. After one passionate night, Axel disappears from Olive's life without so much as a word. He had left to become a professional wrestler and Olive understands that she was never worth much to him. So she thinks. 9 months later, she has Lark, but Axel will never know he has a daughter. How can he...he's disappeared! To his credit, Axel tries to get in touch with her but she won't take his calls. Back and forth, they miss or ignore each other. Maddening! When they finally get their act together and appear to be figuring out how to love one another without letting anything interfere with them, along comes a devious blackmailer...Axel's own business manager! He has photos that could ruin him, let alone Olive, so Axel decides it would be best if he distanced himself from her. Both Axel and Olive seem to think they know what's best for the other and, without discussing it, take off or refuse phone calls. Push away, pull back, push, pull...whiplash! It is time for these two to realize that they are a couple with a child. The journey to their HEA was bumpy but they eventually got there. How sweet it was! Lark was the glue that bound them and, if I were ever to have a best friend, I want it to be Selena! She was the mirror that showed Olive and Axel the truth.
Holly Holt did a marvelous job with the narration. All of the voices were clear, concise and they added to the enjoyment of the story.

Good book

I enjoyed the book. I do wish it had a little more in the in between from when they meant and then saw each other again. But I enjoyed it and the narrator was great!

Loved this story about two people who had a strong relationship growing up but eventually growing apart have one night together which produces a child meet again under crazy a circumstances. Loved the journey to the HEA with twists and turns. The narration of the story was great and I recommend this story for people who enjoy the journey.

Wonderful story!

This story had me going through some ups and downs. I loved the characters and the storyline. Each made a mistake and are paying for it years later. Axel became a boxer at a young age. He grew quickly and was well known. He has this mantra he follows and it works....until something changes. One min I feel sorry for Axel but then a second later I am so disgusted with him I can’t stand it. He redeemed himself but it wasn’t an easy road.

This is my first book by this author. The story was good and I came to care about the characters. Holly Holt narrated this and did a good job.

Loved this

This is one beautiful second chance romance book. The characters were well developed and really had me cheering them on and wanting to slap them at times. I’ve listened to a few of Holly Holt’s narrations and I love her range.

Definitely a book worth listening to

hot and sweet :)

Holly Holt is a new to me narrator. I enjoyed this story and found that listening to this narrator made the story pop for me. I enjoy listening to audio, and this one was no different. The story flowed well and I loved Olivia and Axel. Highly recommend it.

Quick enjoyable read

This was a really enjoyable book could put it down and easily jump back in. My one criticism is that a male narrator would have been a plus on his chapters. Overall I really like this story and look forward to seeing more from the author l.

A sweet, modern first-love, second-change romance

Olive and Axel were each other's childhood best friend, first love and biggest heartbreak. Axel leaves Olive behind to pursue his boxing career without realising he was leaving more than his heart behind.

Years later their paths cross and a second chance presents itself. Only Olive has a child and it is only a couple days before she is due to get married.

This romance is full of chemistry, emotion and the angst of transitioning young love to something more mature and sustaining. The couple have a lot to work through but there is no denying the explosive sexual attraction.

Overall this story is both sweet and sexy. It is a modern love story between a gorgeous alpha male and a nerdy girl next door. Quite literally!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

interesting story

I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

I enjoyed this book and liked the character development. I like a second chance love and a bad boy book and this ticked all the boxes. Holly Holt was good but some of her voices were a little bit the same but she kept me entertained. This is a good book and well worth a credit.
