Publisher's Summary

As far as Marcus O’Connell is concerned, his situation is perfect. He’s now living with the love of his life, Charlotte, and they’re serving as guardians for Eva, a little girl he rescued whose mother is serving time in prison for a crime of which, in Marcus’s mind, she was unfairly convicted.

But Charlotte isn’t on board with Marcus’ way of thinking. Because her divorce is now final, she wants - no, expects - Marcus to want the same things she does. One of those things is a committed relationship, which, to Charlotte, means marriage. For Marcus, though, marriage is only a piece of paper, and it doesn’t have anything to do with commitment. 

However, when circumstances change for Eva, whom they both love deeply, Marcus is forced to make some hard decisions to keep both Eva and Charlotte, and he questions his reasons for not wanting marriage. What will he need to do to keep the child he and Charlotte now consider theirs?

Really Short Listen

A very short listen. Did not care for the narration, especially the female voice. It sounded either whiny or nagging. The male voice was kind of lifeless. The narration gave me no sense that Marcus and Charlotte even liked each other. They were just "together" and both wanted Ava.

Charlotte was not my favorite in The Third Call, but by the end, she was ok. She was not my favorite in this one. It seemed to me like Marcus only married her because of Ava. It also made me wonder if Charlotte had her own ulterior motives for wanting to get married after living together for 4 months.

I would give this 2.5 stars.

Short but really good story.

The Commitment is a follow-up story to The Third Call and I think you’d enjoy this more if you read that first. This is another duet narration and it was good but I thought Elena Rosa’s pacing was a bit off. I thought she accented wrong words in some sentences, almost like she didn’t do a pre-read of the story. I thought Reuben Corbett did a good job.

Marcus and Charlotte are getting along great and they’re taking care of Eva but he’s still hesitant to commit to marriage. His father’s abandonment of his family has made him gun shy. Things happen in this story that kind of force his hand.

I’m really enjoying listening to the audiobooks in this series.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me at my request but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.
